The aecond entertainment of the Concert
Lscture Courae took place laat Thursday
evening at Uraee Methnditt churoh. Aa at
the tint one, (he letting capacity wu increased by the introduction of chain, and
all were required.
I'he entertainment opened with an anthem which waa admirably rendered. Foi.
lowing thia waa a recitation by Mint Tarbell,
a yonug girl of aboot a dozen summers. She
had not been heard before here, aod her ren
dition was a moot agreeable surprise, evincing muoh nathral talent and litelligent
training. Another aurp'se wat in store
when Mite Daniels appeared. She waa ao
smalt the cull so-rcely be seen, but had
inch sweetnest and compos, of voice, and
eo well managed It, at to fill the audieuce
with a thrill of delight. A male quartette
finished this part of the programme, and
the entertaining for the remainer nf the evening was entrusted to ltev. Mr Baer with
hia dissolving views. It cooldu't have been
in better hands. The instrument was a
powerful one presenting a picture upon tha
canvass of great size aud beauty. The ae
lentirmt were well mode. S'urting at
Kqnimalt the endienre wat taken arnnud
to Viotori* whose scenic beauties were dis-
elmwd with cb.-minii effect. Then a jump
wa. taken to N inaimo, and from there to
Port Simeon in the far north. In a twinkling the audience wero ta''en to Vancouver
Tbe horrors of the great Frszer valley tlood
were teen, and then a move made to Kant-
Imps, and Ca-riboo and itt mining inictet
w-re portrayed; and then down into the
Kootenay section the lime lights flashed.
The most gorgeous an-, Iwwilderiug seines
were exhibited along the line of the C. P.
K , the Selkirk and Kooky monnteiiis stand
ing nut from the canvass in a'l their auhliiti
ity and grandeur. The lecturer doirihed
the varioua view* presented, in a hnmeroua
wav. interfusin; his rennrVs with witty
anecdotes, inimitably told, keeping the and
ienoe in tho belt of humor, and at timet
convnlsing them with laughter. But when
the msj.etie Rockies were retched, the
manner end langnage of the >eotarer choused, into unison with the sublimity of aud
awfnl grandeur of tbe towering and frowning heithtt. Oooe past these, tbe ainooth-
nest of hit language, and the mellow cadence of hia voice brought down tha aud-
ienoe from its eca'aey nf excitement to the
calmness and restfulnosa of the plains���tho
great ocean of the prairies.
Thit aat the olose of tbe entertainment
proper, hut to please the boys, as he taid,
for keepieg such good order, he presented
on oanvtss the laughable ehose of Messrs
Lone; and .Short by the Bengal tiger. It
was intensely amusing.

THE BAND
n t e r t a i n i n g
1 li e p c o p I c
with delicious
strains of nt ll-
sic >>s vhal
the I." nion brat*
band did Sal-
u r i'a y evening
for the fir at
tunc since they have been organized, ft
is scarcely three months since Thk Nkws
published its invitation for everyone who
wonld like to join a band to send in his
name and address. A few responded.
The invitation was renewed and more
names sent in and then a meeting was
called. Hut lew attended. After two nr
three more attempts a sufficient number
became interested and committees were
appointed to canvass for subscriptions.
A sufficient amount was obtained to procure a few instruments, and the service,
of Mr. August t.'rbain of Nanaimo, .inexperienced bandmaster were obtained as
a leader- I'lie Colliery Co. assited in eV-
ery way in its power, and the old Reading
Kooin II,iii building was secured as a
place for practice, through its liberality.
Since then the band has made great
progress. Last Saturday evening it gave ';'
the people a-.ample of its musical abilities. It was an aureeable strrpi'ise.
Marcliing tip Dunsmuir avenue from its
ball, it halted in front of .Mr. K.I). Little's
residence lon�� enough to play two or three
pieces, and then proceeding to tht Wa-
verlev Hotel from whose verandah it dis-
coursed sweet music to the delight of a
laitfe concourse of people who were quick
ly attracted to the place. Then forming
they marched down in front of THE NEWS
v, hero tliey plaved for some minutes in su
pcrb style, and tu numbers quite as large
as had jjfeeitd them at the The Waverley.
When the music ceased, Mr. Whitney,
who was standing in the window of his
ollice, addressed them as lolto.is:
''Gentlemen ofthe Union band: I thank
you most heartily for the compliment of
your visit, and for thc enjoyment you have
anorded me in common with others by
your excellent music. Vour appearance
this evening ts an agreeable surprise and
proves that yen have made goud use of
your opportunities, i am proud of the
progress you have made in so brief a
time, and trust that you will continue to
improve until your reputation be second
to no band in the Province, I congratulate yon on what you have accomplished
and the people of L'nion that at last they
have a band of their own. I trust you
may soon be able to give a concert for
your own benefit, and can assure you that
then and at all times you may depend on
all the help which Thk NEWS is able to
extend.   Again I thank you."
The band responded by playing an appropriate air, and tl.cn proceeded to
the residence of Mi. Alex. (Irani, whom
ii complimented wilh a few tunes. The
band alsn paid a visit to the dwelling of Mr
K. II. Smith. At every place at which
lhey called thev were hospitably entertained and among the citizens generally
their appearance created much enthusiasm, and their playing mosl favorable
comment.

A sensational .*uul gruesome story
cornea Irom Laval, that Ilttlo town
In Franco where tho guillotine has
Just dispensed Ita latest stroke of justice ln decapitating Abbe Bruneau.
Tho must interesting mystery thut
has ever occupied thc thought-s of intelligent men. and that which alono
has persistently caused speculation on
the part of every thinker, has been
tho uncertainty ns to whether a dissevered head retained its consciousness for even a single Instant after it
had left the body. An effort to solve
this problem, as probably the first
well-arranged plan to that end, was
made In the case of the execution of
Bruneau, and tho details have just
been given to tho public, details that
aro startling, and hold the interest
as none othor thau such a subject
can hold it. Bruneau was an educated
and intellectual man. That he was a
murderer, proved in one Instance and
suspected of several others, does not,
unfortunately, affofrd any ground for
suspecting the high standard of his
intellect. He had studied many of tlie
sciences, understood medicine so as to
be quite proficient in its practice, was
a student of languages, and generally
possessed of more than tho average
information. But in him there was a
taint of ,
JEKYL AND HYDE,
for he indulged in prayers while be
was an inmate of a mojnastery, and
at the same time he despoiled his associates of their loos2 jewelry and anything else of value that he could lay
his hands on, terminating his career
with the murder of Abba Tricot and
throwing his bojily down a well.
One evening about a month ago the
governor of tlie prison at Laval was
visited by M. Dominique, who presented an order signed by the President
of tlfo Republic, calling upon thc governor to permit the advocate to go
to the cell of Bruneau and converse
with the condemned without witnesses. " Bruneau," said M. Dominique, " I have come to speak to you
witli great frankness and upon a subject thut is painful to approach and
terrible to discuss, but you are a man
of more than ordinary intellect, and I
know you possess unusual courage. My
errand to yon is not to acquaint you
with the unhappy termination of my
labors in yokir interest, bnt to present to yob a matter that you mny
Iks willing to entertain, and agree to
an experiment that If (successful will
be,onc of the
MOST STARTLING INCIDENTS
of the times. You are a scientific man
by education; so am I, and we know
..that the problem of whether or not a
gleam of feeling or sensation remains
in the human brain ouo second after
the head leaves the body, is one of tho
most interesting that bus ever puzzled the minds of scientific men. This
problem has never been solved for the
��� i reason, I believe, that those who have
heretofore been guillotined, who were
sufficiently intelligent to make such
a compact as I am about suggesting
to you, had no oae to make the compact with, and those from whom physicians attempted to learn were
frightened before the knifo fcjl. In you
Intelligence and courage are combined."
"What do you want mo to do?"
*'I want you to communicate with
me after your execution. I want you
by means 01 a prearranged signal to
convey to me the information that
your brain is capable of understanding
what I Kiiy to it, that thore Is a continuity of thought In your mind, that
tho
BLOW OF TIIE KNIFE
has not instantaucously paralyzed
your will power, hap not ended your
capacity to respond to a question If
put to you a second after the blow.
It is a terrible ordeal, an awful experience 1 am forcing upon you, but
consider the Incomparable service it
will be to science, the great satisfaction it will be lo the scientific world."
Bruneau paced his cell excitedly ;
even Ilia Iron nerve was severely tried
by tlie terrors of his position, and
tlie horrible proposition liis advocate
made h'm. His lace was ashen, but
h.s voice wats firm as he replied;
'Then you Wisli my���my head to
speak '.'"
"Not speak, but to give some sign
of understanding. Tho rapid hemorrhage probably weakens the physical
Bond tion ni tho head so quickly as
to make speak.ng quite Impossible,
but It may not be efficiently rapid
tn prevent some muscuia^r movement
in tiie face,"
"What is your plan?"
"Jt is this: At lho instant of your
docapltntlou I shall Btand beside M.
in il.i.'i*. and before thu, knife falls I
shall mut tor bo ,\ fjii may hear me an
admonition to remember our agreement! and at once, upon the knife
having dono Its work, I shall raise
your head close to mine and shall say,
'REPLY, REPLY I'
If you aro conscious at the instant
and realize the meaning'of my words
you aro to signify it by lowering and
raising tho lid of your oyo twice.
By those two motions you will do
moro for tho scientific world than
any human beiug who has over lived.
Will you do It?"
Bruneau controlled his emotions to
a marvellous extent. Ho ceased hla
nervous walk and threw himaelf upon
his cot. For a few momenta he was
lost In thought, and made no response;
then ho raised his head ami murmured : "It would bn impossible tomorrow. 1 am unnerved and I cannot master ray feelings.   I must have
nu-r-I'erier, explaining the situation
and asking the delay, or requesting
; that the President grant hlin a personal audience. A few hours later the
following reply was received: "Pont-
Bur-Setne, August S7�����Tho President
will receive M. Dominique, barrister,
on tho day after to-morrow."
M. Dominique attended lhe President as the despatch called for, but
the crime of the abbe was so grave
that the chief executive
DECLINED TO INTERFERE.
The advocate returned with all
haste to Laval and the execution was
fixed for tho morning of August 80th.
At midnight tbe crowd began to assemble in the Place do Palais l tho
i ommLssalre of Police, at the head of
a strong detachment, cleared the
centre of the open space, and defined
the boundary of the crowd by means
Of Chains stretched from tree to tree.
At 1 o'clock the crowd had grown to
sueh proportions that a detachment
Of 600 reservea from the One Hundred nnd Twenty-Fourth Regiment
was called out to aid tho police, and
Colonel Perard, in command, was
obliged to station his men eight rows
deep inside the chains to keep the
populace from breaking through.
Large numliers of people came from
the surrounding towns, and tho pup-
ore the next day estimated that there
were 10,000 people at the place of
execution. At 10 minutes to 5 that
morning all was ready and Bruneau
was offered the customary glass of
brandy to strengthen hlui In his last
trial. But this ho refused. *' It Is
needless,' said he. " I want nothing.'
But they insisted, ami he finally consented to take a cup of coffee with
a little rum. At thi'*! moment bis advocate stepped beside him and he
whispered words that were not heard
by tho others standing about. But
Bruneau replied In a voice sufficiently
loud to attract attention,
" IT IS  ALL RIGHT.
I have practised aud will respond to
your question,'
M. Dei bier took possession of the
condemned, signed the receipt to the
Governor, and tlie cortege resumed
Its way to the guillotine. Bruneau'**;
hands were tied behind him, his feet
were tied at the iuikles. it was ten
minutes to five. As the great gate
of the prison opened ths troops came
to present arms; the crowd was
hushed; everyone within tho enclosure removed his hat; Bruneau was
self-possessed aud resolute ; tlie chaplain walked directly before the condemned man aud endeavored in that
way to conceal tho guillotine from
his view. But he saw it quickly, ami
at a few steps from it he hesitated
and stopped. Singularly enough, at
this very moment the sun rose and
its first ray foil upon tho glistening
knife that was high In tho air. Bruneau saw it, but hie hesitancy was
but for an instant; tho chaplain embraced him, and said some words of
comfort and embraced him the second time; he kissed the crucifix that
was held liefore him, and ten thousand people, as still as death, looked
down upon him. At this moment the
aids of M. Deibler
SEIZED THE PRISONER
by either shoulder and threw him
over on thc bascule, and, quicker than
it can be told, hla head rested directly beneath the grooves down which
the knife slips in itsl errand of justice,
The advocate stood directly beside
the basket and opposite to M. Deibler, and, as tho knife was loosened,
he leaned over and whispered) the prearranged words to Bruneau. The
head had not touched tho sawdust
in the basket when the advocate
reached forth his hand, and seizing
the hair of the Abbe, he lifted the
head up to his face and appeared to
whisper something in its ear. Tbe
entire audience stood thunderstruck and speechless, the troops
remained at present arms, until
slowly, hesitatingly, and with disappointment marked In every feature,
the ndvocatc gently returned the
head to tlie basket and turned away.
It was then Just five minutes to
five.
M. Dominique explains In his own
language the teu seconds following
the decapitation and during which he
held the dissevered head: " When
I lifted the head from tho basket,
doing it so quickly that even the
sawdust had no opportunity to attach itself to the bloody neck, the
EYES WERE WIDE OPEN,
and looking at me With every appearance of Intelligence and understanding, without losing a second l
exclaimed, 'Reply, reply, quick!' As
1 uttered these words tho eyelid of
the left eye drooped spasmodically
and raised again. I hesitated a second and repeated my words, but
there was no motion, and I exclaimed excitedly, 'For God's sake, reply
again f There was a quivering in the
cy lid and the lashes acemcl to waver
as though stirred by the wind, but
there was no motion ; the features
became set. tlio lines of tho face
more marked, and within six seconds
from the fall of the knife tho head
was unmistakably dead. My effort
to solve the mystery of tho duration
of the life after decapitation failed."

In ids sermon in New York on Sunday, Rev. Dr. Talmage discusses a
topic which for months past has been
a familiar one In the dally press, viz.:
"The Dissipations of the Race Course."
His text was Job xxxlx., 19, 21, 26 :
"Hast thou given the horse strength?
Hast thou clothed bis neck with
thunder? He paweth In the valley and
rejolceth; he go-eth on to meet the armed men. He salth among the trumpets,
ha. ha! and he smcllcth the battle afar
off, the thunder of the captains, and
the shouting."
We have recently had long columns
of Intelligence from the race course
and multitudes flocked to the watering places to witness equine competition, and there is lively discussion In
all households about the right and
wrong of such exhibitions of mettle and
speed, and when there is a heresy
abroad that the cultivation of a horse's
fleetness is an Iniquity instead of a
commendable virtue���at such a time a
sermon li demanded of every miniater
who would like to defend public morals
on the one hand and wbo ls not willing
to see an unrlght-eous abridgement of
Innooen't amusement on the other. In
this discussion I shall follow no ser-
monlc precedent, but will give independently what I consider the Christian and common sense view of this
potent, all absorbing and agitating
question of the turf.
There needs to be a redistribution of
coronets among the brute creation. For
ages the lion has been called the king
of beasts. 1 knock off its coronet and
put the crown upon the horse, in every
way nobler, whether in shape or spirit
or sagacity or intelligence or affection
or usefulness. He is semihuman, and
knows how to reason on a small scale.
The centaur of olden times, part horse
and part man, seems to be a suggestion
of the fact that the horse Is something
more than a beast. Job ln my text sets
forth his strength, his beauty, his majesty, the panting of his nostril, the
pawing of his hoof, and his enthusiasm
for the battle. What Hosa Bonheur did
for the cattle and what Landseer did
for the dog, Job with mightier pencil
does for the horse. Eighty-eight times
does the Bible speak of him. He comes
Into every kingly procession and Into
every great occasion and Into every
triumph. It ls very evident that Job
and David and Isaiah and Ezekiel and
Jeremiah and John were fond of the
horse. He comes Into mueh of their
imagery. A red horse���that meant
war. A black horse���that meant famine. A pale horse���that meant death.
A white horse���that meant victory.
Uood Mordecal mounts him while Hainan holds the bit. The church's advance in the Bible is compared to a
company of horses of Pharoah's char-
lot. Jeremiah cries out, "How canst
thou contend with horses?" Isaiah
says, "The hone's hoofs shall be counted as flint," Miriam claps her cymbals
and sings, "The horse and the rider
hath he thrown Into the sea." St.
John, describing Christ as coming forth
from conquest to conquest, represents
him aa seated on a white horse. In the
parade of heaven the Bible makes us
hear the clicking of hoofs on the** golden
pavement as it says, "The armies which
were in heaven followed him on white
horses." I should not wonder if the
torse, so banged and bruised and beaten and outraged on earth, should have
some other plaee where his wrongs
shall ba righted. I 'do not assert it,
but I say 1 should not be surprised if,
after all. St. John's descriptions of the
horses in heaven turned out not altogether to be figurative, but somewhat
literal.
As the Bible makes a favorite of the
lorse, the patriarch, and the prophet,
md the evangelist, and the apostle
stroking his sleek hide and patting
his rounded neck and tenderly lifting
his exquisitely formed hoof and listening with a thrill to the champ of his
bit, au all great natures in fall ages have
spoken of him In encomiastic terms.
Virgil In his Qeorgics almost seems
to plagiarize from this description in
the text, so much are the descriptions
alike���the description of Virgil and the
description of Job. The Duke of "Wellington would not allow anyone irreverently to touch hie old war horse Copenhagen, on whom he had ridden fifteen
hours without dismounting at Waterloo, and when old Copenhagen died, Ids
master ordered a military salute fired
over hla grave. John Howard showed
that he did not exhaust all his sympathies in pitying the human race, for
when sick he writes home, "Has my
old chaise horse become sick or spoiled V" There is hardly any passage of
French literature mure pathetic, than
the lamentation over the death of the
war charger, Marchegay, Walter
Sctftt has su much admiration for this
divinely honored creature of God that
in "St. Ronan's Well" he orders the
girth slackened and the blanket thrown
over the smoking Hanks, Edmund
Burke, walking In the park at Beacons-
field, musing over the past, throws his
arms around the worn-out horse of his
dead son Richard, and weeps upon the
horse's neck, the horse seeming to
Sympathize In the memories. Rowland
Hill, the great English preacher, was
caricatured because in his family prayers he supplicated for the recovery of
a sick horse, but when the horse got
welt, contrary to all the prouhecles of
the farriers, the prayer did not seem
nuite so much of an absurdity.
But what shall 1 say of the maltreatment of this beautiful and wonderful
creature of GodV If Thomas Chalmers
In his day felt called upon to preach
a sermon agains* cruelty to animals,
how much more in this day is there a
need of reprehensive discourse. All
honor to the memory of Professor
Bergh, the chief apostle for the brute
creation, for the mercy he demanded
and achieved for this king of beasts. A
man who owned 4,000 horses, and some
say, 40,000, wrote In the Bible, "A
righteous man regardeth the life of
his beast." Sir Henry Lawrence's care
of the horse was beautifully Christian.
He says: "I expect we shall lose Conrad, though I have taken so much care
nf him that he may come in cool. 1
always walk him the last four or five
miles, and as I walk myself the first
hour, it is only in the middle of the
journey we get over the ground." The
Ettrick Shepherd ln his matchless "Am
broelal Nights" speaks of the maltreat
ment of the horse as a practical blasphemy. 1 do not believe In the transmigration of souls, but I cannot very
severely denounce the Idea, for when I
see men who cut and bruise and whack
and welt and strike and maul and outrage and Insult the horse, that beautiful servant of the human race, who
carrleB our burdens and pulls our plows
and turns our threshers and our mills
and runs for our doctors���when 1 see
men thus beating and abusing and outraging that creature. It seems to me
tnat it would be only fair that the aou-
trlne of transmigration of souls should
prove true, and that for their punishment they should pass over into some
poor miserable brute and be beaten and
whacked and cruelly treated and frozen
and heated and overdriven���Into an
everlasting stage horse, an eternal
traveler on a towpath, or tied to an
eternal post, In an eternal winter,smitten with eternal epizootics!
Oh, is it noi a shame that the brute
oreatlon, which had the first possession
of our world, should be so maltreated
by the race that came ln last���the fowl
and the lish created on the fifth day,
the horse and the cattle created on the
morning of the sixth day, and the human race not created until the evening
or the sixth day? It ought to be that it
auy man overdrives a horse, or feeda
him when he Is hat, or recklessly drives
a nail into the quick of his hoof, or
rowels him to see him prance, or bo
whors him that his fetlocks drop blood,
or puts a oollar on a raw neck, or unnecessarily clutches his tongue with a
twisted bit, or cuts off his hair until he
has no defense against the cold, or unmercifully abbreviates the natural defense against Insectile annoyance���that
such a man as that himself ought to be
made to pull and let his horse ride!
But not only do our humanity and
our Christian principle and the dictates
of God demand that we kindly treat the
brute creation and especially the horse,
but I go farther and say that whatever can be done for the development
of his fleetness and his strength and his
majesty ought to be done. We need to
study his anatomy and his adaptations, I am glad that large books have
been written to show how he can be
best managed and how his ailments
can be cured and what his usefulness
Is and what his capacities are. It
would be a shame If in this age of the
world, when the florist.has turned the
thin flower of the wood into a gorgeous
rose and the pomologlat has changed
the acrid and gnarled fruit of the ancients into the very poetry of pear and
peach and plum and grape and apple
and the snarling cur of the orient has
become the great mastiff, and the miserable creature of the olden times
harnyard has become the Devonshire,
and the Alderney, and the Shorthorn,
that the horse, grander than them all,
should get no advantage from our science or our civilisation or our Christianity. Groomed to the last point of
soft brilliance, his flowing mane a billow of beauty, his arched neck in utmost rhythm of curve, let him be har-
nesBed in graceful trappings and then
driven to the farthest goal of excellence
and then fed at luxuriant oat bins and
blanketed In comfortable stall. The
long tried and faithful servant of the
human race deserves all kindness, all
cure, all reward, all succulent forage
aiul soft litter and paradisaical pasture
field. Those farms In Kentucky and
ia different parts of the north, where
the horse is trained to perfection in
fleetness and in beauty and In majesty,
nn* well set apart. There Is no more
virtue fn driving slow than in driving
fast, any more than a freight train going ten miles the hour Is better than
an express train going fifty.
There ia a delusion abroad in the
world that a thing must be necessarily
good and Christian if It is slow and
dull and plodding. There are very
few good people who seem to imagine
It is humbly pious to drive a spavined,
galled, glandered, spring halted, blind
staggered jade. There ls lot so much
virtue In a Roslnante as in a Bucephalus. We want swifter horses and
swifter men and swifter enterprises,
and the church of God needs to get
off its jog trot. Quick tempests, quick
lightnings, quick streams; why not
quick horses? In the time of war the
cavalry service does the most execution, and as the battles of the world
are probably not all past, our Christian patriotism demands that we be
Interested in equinal velocity. We
might as well have poorer guns in our
arsenals and clumsier ships In our
navy yards than other nations, as to
have under our cavalry saddles and
before our parks of artillery slower
horses. From the battle ot* Granlous,
where the Persian horses drove the
Macedonian infantry Into the river,
clear down to the horses on which
Philip Sheridan and Stonewall Jackson rode into the fray, this arm of the
military service has been recognized.
Hamllcar, Hannibal, Gustavus Adolph-
us, Marshal Ney, were cavalrymen.
In this arm of the service, Charles
Martel, at the battle of Poitiers, beat
bark the Arab invasion. The Carthaginian cavalry, with the loss of only
7U0 men, over the W the Roman army
with the loss of 70,000. In the same
wuy the Spanish cavalry drove bade
the Moorish hordes. Tlie best way io
keep peace In this country and in all
countries Is to be prepared for war,
and there ia no success In such a
cuniest unless there be plenty of
light-footed ohargers. Our Christian
patriotism and our Instruction from
the Word of Uod demand that first of
all we kindly treat the horse, and
then after that, that we develop liis
fleetness, and his grandeur, and his
majesty, and his strength.
But whnt shall 1 say of the effort
being math; In this day on a large
scale to make this splendid creature
of God, this divinely honored being,
an Instrument of atrocious evil? I
make no indiscriminate assault
against the turf. I believe in the turf
if it ean be conducted on right principles and with no betting. There Is
no more harm In offering a prize for
the swiftest racer than there is harm
at an agricultural fair in offering a
prize to the farmer who haa the best
wheat, oi to the fruit grower who has
the largest, pear, or to the machinist
who presents the best corn thrasher,
or in a school offering a prize of a
copy of Shakespeare to the best
reader, or in a household giving a
lump of sugar to the best behaved
youngster. Prizes by nil means, rewards by all means. That is the way
God develops the race. Rewards for
all kinds of well-doing. Heaven itself
is called a prize, "The prize of the
high calling of God in Christ Jesua."
So what Is right in one direction Is
right In another direotion. And without the prizes the horse's iieetnesB
and beauty and strength will never be
fully developed. If It cost $1,000 or
$5,000 or $10,000,    and    the    result   be
achieved, it ls cheap. But the sin begins where the betting begins, for that
Is gambling, or the effort to set that
for whleh you give no equivalent, and
gambling, whether on a large scale or
a small scale, ought to be denounced
of men ae it will be accursed of God.
If you have won 60 cents or $5,000 aa
a w.-ger, you had better get rid ot it.
Get rid of it right away. GHve It te
someone who lost ln a bet, or give It
to some great reformatory institution,
or If you do not like that, go down to
the river and pitch It off the docks.
You cannot afford to keep it. It will
burn a hole ln your purse, It will burn
a hole in your estatu and you will lose
all that, perhaps 10,000 times more���
perhaps you will lose all. Gambling
blasts a man or It blasts his children.
Generally both and all.
What a spectacle when at Saratoga,
or at Long Branch, or at Brighton
beach, or at Sheepshead bay, 'he
horses start, nnd ln a flash $50,000 or
$100 000 change hands! Multitudes
ruined by losing the bet, othero worse
ruined by gaining the htt, lor if a
man lose ln a bet at a horso race he
may be discouraged and quit, but If
he win the bet he ls very apt to go
straight on to belli
An intimate friend, a journalist, who
In the line of hia profession investigated this evil, tells me that there are
three different kinds of betting at
horse races, and they arc about equally
leprous, by auction pools, by Frenoh
mutuals, by what is ealled bookmak-
ing���all gambling, all bad, all ro:tc*n
with Iniquity. There la one wurd that
needs to be written on the brow of
every pool aeller as he sits deducting
hla 3 or 5 per cent and slyly ringing
up more tickets than were sold on the
winning horse���a word to be written
also on the brow of every bookkeeper
who at extra inducements scratches a
horse off of the race and on the brow
of every Jockey who slackens pace
that, according to agreement, another
may win, and written over every
judges' stand and written on every
hoard of the surrounding fences. That
word is "swindle!" Yet thousands bet.
Lawyers bet. Judgea of courts bet.
Members of the legislature bet. Members of congress bet. Professors of religion bet. Teachers and superintendents of Sunday schools, I am told, bet.
Ladles bet, not directly, but through
agents. Yesterday, and every day they
bet, mey gain, they lose, and this summer, while the paranoia swing and the
hands clap and the hunaas deafen,
there will be a multitude of people
cajoled and deceived and cheated, who
will at the races go neck and neck,
neck and neck to perdition.
Cultivate the horse, by all means,
drive him as faat aa you desire, provided you do not Injure him or endanger yourself or others, but be carefu!
and d-o not harness the horse to the
chariot of sin. Do not throw your
jewels of morality under the flying
hoof. Do not under the pretext erf improving the horse destroy a man. Do
not have your name put down la the
ever-Increasing catalogue of those who
aie ruined for both worlds by the dissipation of the American race course.
They say that an honest race course
Is a straight track, and that a dishonest race course is a crooked track-
that is the parlance abroad���but I tell
you that every race track surrounded
by betting men and betting worn****'
and netting customs, is a stialgh!
track���I mean straight down! Christ
asked in one of his gospels, "Is not a
man better than a sheep?" I say yes,
and he is better than all the steeds
that with lathered flanks ever Shot
around the ring at a race course. That
Is a very poor job by which a man in
order to get a horse to oome out a full
length ahead of some other racer an
lames his own morals that he comes
out a whole length behind in the race
set before him.
Do you not realize the fact that there
Is a mighty effort on all sides to-day
to get money without earning it? That
is the curse of all the cities; it ls the
curse of America���the effort to get
money without earning It���and as other forms of stealing are not respoeta-
ble, they go Into these gambling practices. I preach this sermon on square
old-fashioned honesty. I have said nothing against the horse, l have said
nothi.ng against the turf, I have said
everything against their prostitution.

Philip walked down the yard to
where tlie master carpenter stood
with his bands thrust Into his trouser
pockets.
"Do you waut your timber moved?"
lie asked of him.
"Yos, I do," replied the carpenter,
wxa-thfully; "but workmen's so precious Independent nowadays that
tht-y expect their governor to do all
the rough Jobs."
"I want a rough Job," said 1*1.11, his
heart craving for some physical fatigue.
"How much an hour do you want'.1"
usked the carpenter,
"You can pay mo what my work is
worth.   Show mo what is to he done."
Ue wols so earnest that the carpenter gave him the Job at once.
Philip set to work with a will* and
succeeded in giving such satisfaction
that at the end his employer said:
"I>o yon think you could do a bit of
saw-work if you tried ?"
"I da-re say I can 11 you lend me a
saw, and show me what ls to be done."
It wus simple work, and Philip got
through It sii.lis.actoriliy.
At twelve he was told to tako his
dinner hour aoul came back. He worked
lruiu one till six. Altogether he had
done such a tair day's work that the
carpenter, thoroughly pleased with
him, ungnged him to come the next
day.
Philip went home exultant, with
blisters ou his hands, sawdust in his
beard and ttie creases of his clothes,
and a couple of rents In his Jacket;
he looked something tike a workman.
lie told Madge he was going in for
carpentering, it was u blow for

"Why, a day's rowing would do as
much at first!" said l'hil. " My hands
will get hard enough for the work

"Dear hands!" murmured Madge,
bending over them mournfully, and
caressing them. 1 dare say she wondered If they would lose their whiteness and delicacy, and become In time
like ordinary carpenter's  hands.

CHAPTER   XIV.
And now sorrow sprang from a
new iource. Poor Cicely lost her
sweetheart.
This Innocent, simple little maid
had not the solid parts, the forethought and prudence, of her sister .loan. Everything was sufficient
fur the dav with her, aud she never
troubled herself to look beyond It.
If there was enjoyment to be had,
she took it, and her ple-usure was
never marred by anticipating results.
A character of this kind Is not one
to be held up ior admiration; on tho
other hand, I boo, no reason to feel
harshly towards any wluv have such
a character. Everything bas Its
place In nature ; the birds, who have
nothing but gay plumage and sweet
song to recommend them, equally
with those of sober colors, wlio minister to the needs of mankind.
There was this nt least to Iw snid
for Cicely; she wan uncomplaining
and patient when pleasures wero not
to be had, ami when called upon to do
her duties lu tho dull routine of life,
she accepted ber lot without thinking herself particularly hardly dealt
with. And so when the crash came,
putting nu end to her scene of delight at Kensington, she took off her
silk, put ou a plain stuff, and went
back to Highgate, with only onc
outburst of weeping, and thnt was
rather for Madge's loss than her
own. And what a change was
that for her! It was as II a butterfly had gone back into Its chrysalis
state.
When it became evident that Pot
ter's peculiar style of art had gone
out of fashion as suddenly as It had
come in, and that no onc could safely xlepeud upou him for support, it
seemed to Joan and mc that now
was the moment when Horace Clinton should mako Cicely his wife, nmi
this I ventured to hint to him, I
being now regarded, n�� an old friend
of the family. Horace took mo Into
his confidence nt once, nnd showed me
why it woufld be Inadvisable for the
marriage to take place at that
time.
He was au excellent young man,
and I am euro that if it hnd depend
ed only on his own Inclinations, he
would long before have married Cicely. But he had uu Invalid mother
and au idle sister, whom he had supported sinco his father's death, and
these two ladies were particularly
exacting and selfish. They spent all
tho young man made, and not content with keeping him poor, they
wished to keep him single as well.
They had taken a great dislike to
Cicely, exaggerated her faults, and
did all tliey possibly could to pro-
Judlce him against her, seeing that
the cost of a wifo would necessarily
diminish the amount of money at
their disposal. As he could not
turn his mother and sister out of the
house, and had not the means to establish a separate home for himself,
he must, if he married, tnke his wife
to tive under the same roof with these
envious and uncharitable ladies,
whicli would bo anything but pleasant Tor Cicely. As he very truly
said, " Her life would be extwemely
misewable." There was, however, a
hope that this state of things would
not last many months, as a widower
was paying attentions to Miss Clinton, and ehe had decided to be his
wife as soon as he should ask her, in
which happy event, Mrs. Clinton
would go to live with her son-in-law,
as soon ns he wns properly broken in
by his wife. But of this I was to
say nothing, lest it should come
round to the widower, and
frighten him off. I promised
secrecy, and Horace and l drank to
Ids sister's matrimonial success.
So Cicely once more had to seek
hor livelihood. She advertised In the
Times for a situation in a gentleman's
family, where a dalty governess waB
required, giving her initials and address. On tho day this advertisement was published who should call
upon the girls but MrB. Leclerc, the
lady who had previously engaged
Cicely through Mr. Motley's mediation. She was a very amiable and
lively person, and after greeting Cicely ln the most friendly and affection-
ate manner, she said���
" My dear child, hns any one snapped yoii up yet awhile ?"
Cicely replied, laughingly, in the
negative, whereupon Mrs. Leclerc
Paid--
"Then I do. We have been thinking about you ever since Mr. Hnr-
lowe's misfortune���and we pity him
with all our heart, I assure you;
and had 1 not felt It might hurt
you, I should have asked you before
now to come and teach my little one
again���she will positively learn of no
one else."
Then It wns arranged that Cicely
should go as before to teach Mrs. Leclerc's daughter. The impulsive lady
would have had her reside ln the
house, but Cicely objected because or
Horace, and Joan thought It quite as
well that sho should como home, as
she needed advice and counsel, which
she was not likely to get from such
a flighty person as Mrs. Leclerc.
And uow thoro was sunshine for
Cicely. Nothing nould exceed the
kindness and indulgence of Mrs. Leclerc and her husbaud. Cicely's
naivete, her winsome prettlness
drew heartrS to her. She was treated rather na a member of the family
than a paid servant. Mrs. Leclerc
petted her like a child giving her
trluk?ts and finery, taking her about
to concerts, inviting her to take
part in home entertainments, sending her homo in a brougham when
the weather was rough���in short, as
wo feared, spoiling her for hard work.
Those impulsive, enthusiastic persons are never to be trusted, for the
cifyricc of a moment may change
them from friends to enemies.
All went well for a certain time;
then Joan grew uneasy. Mrs. Leclerc
had taken into her head that Cicely must mnrry some one better than an obscure artist, and
encouraged her in flirtations which
were, to say tho least of It, unnecessary ; for tho girl's simplicity and responsiveness led her sufficiently far
that wuy. I am sure that sho loved
Horace with all her heart, and had
none to spare for any one elae; sho
entered Into flirtation without knowing thnt she flirted, with no serious
thought at all aliout it.
" If people pay me attention. It
pleases me, and I cannot pretend that
it annoys,'* she said, ���* and If tliey nre
anil a Mo I must be amiable too. No
ouo is rude to\ me, and that being so,
I don't think I ought to Iw rude to
any one.'*
Ono Sunday I found a gentleman
at Sunnyslda whom I hnd not met before ; lie was Introduced to ras as Mr.
1'e.pclval Let-lore, and I found he was
Mrs. Le-rlorc s brother-in-law.
���He was a handsome gentleman*
about 86, with a grwit deal of sol1-
aeeuronce, nn endless flow of conversation, and nn easy and graceful manner. When wo were alone, Joan and
I settled that wo did not like him.
His amiability was Of that boundless
kind that excites a suspicion of Insincerity, lie had something flattering
to sny to everybody���in a word ho
was too pleasant by hair.
Potter, who bad not received any
praise for a long time, was enchanted
with him. He could not see that Mr.
LeclerC'S admiration of thoso wretched daubs was overdone; if he had been
told that his painting was tlie finest
that ever had "been put upon canvas
he would have been fool enough to he-*
lieve it.
"Y'ou are of thc right school, Mr.
Leclerc,' said he; "you are one of
us���tho advanced lot���tho coming lot;
and tho oftener you drop In to have
a gossip about art the better pleased I shall Iw.'*
It was no fault of Mr. Leclerc's if
Potter was not woll pleased In this
respect; ho dropped In with Increasing frequency, accommodating himself
to     Potter's     free and easy ways.
Sometimes he    dropped in    to    talk
painting,    and sometimes to hear a
little    music���Joan   playing Mendels-
sohn'B Liede with great feeling���and
sometimes without any excuse at all.
But tt was noticeable that be never ;
camo when Cicely was absent.     We j
could never find fault with him for
that.     A young man smitten with a
young girl naturally seeks her     so- !
ciety.     Nor wns lie bound to     keep ]
away simply because Cicely was  en- j
gaged to Horace.    A lover naturally
believes that ho is a better man than '
his  rival, and that justifies him  in j
the  endeavor to defeat  bis eoni-wti- i
tor and win the prize. I'art what Joan
and  I   disliked  was  his pretence of j
good will towards Horace.
No one could accuse Horace of such
deceit*. He would uot meet Mr. Le-
clerc's advances, he was reserved and
cold In his company, aud ho took but |
slight pains to conceal what be himself called his " extwn'dlunwy dislike"
to him.
It soon became obvious to us all���
the real object of Mr. Leclerc's visits
to Sunnyslde; nnd when at 'length
Potter discovered that he did not
come for the sole purpose of listening to his conversation upon the coming school, be did not express tbat
degree of contempt for him which
might havo been expected. Ou the
contrary, he seemed even more anxious that tbe new friend should "drop
In" frequently. At the same time,
he Iwgan to abuse poor Horace���behind liis back, of course; he was not
an artist, ho could paint a " protty
face," and tbat was all. Ho was a
man without character or he would
long ago bave struck out for the commercial line of art, free hlmseH from
the bondage of those two women, bis
mother nnd sister, turned tbem out
of the house, and married Cioely. He
was an ass to bear that burden, and
a stupid asB���and so on and so on.
The fact Is, Potter having tasted
of the good things, was longing to
sit down again beside the flesh-pots,
and be was not above any meanness to
gratify his desires. He thought thnt
Cicely by marrying Mr. Leclerc might
obtain a good posltlnii in socieity,
and enable him once more to dawdle
about a drawing-room ln a dress-coat.
The f!rst thing was to make a rupture between Cicely and Horace, nnd
with this purpose he said all that he
could to make poor Horace ridiculous
and contemptible in Cicely's opinion.
That was a trying time for Horace,
and unfortunately he did not come
out well In the trial. He was of a
Jealous disposition, and could not conceal his dislike for Mr. Leclerc, and
tbe vexation he felt In seeing Cicely
bright and amiable ln receiving that
gentleman's attentions. It made him
silent, and he knew that he seemed
morose. And the more dull and heavy
he was, the livelier and more entertaining Mr. Leclerc appeared by contrast. Even Joan could not'help smiling when he talked to her, and I
admit tbat bis conversation to me
was always inspiriting and pleasant.
Then the evil was aggravated by
I'otter, who, concealing his bitter feelings under a mask of pleasantry,
would banter Horace upon bis "grum-
plness."
" Liver out of order again, old
man?" he would ask, or, " Anything
extwa'dlnawy in the box twade?"
or, *** Has mamma been scolding hert
Horace ?" and such liko ridiculous and
subtly damaging questions.
The very best ol men must suffer In
general opinion by being constantly
disparaged, and when, besides being
thus disparaged, Horace lwcame dull
and uninteresting by reason or his
Jealousy, It was only natural that
Cicely should love bim less than formerly. We saw that, Joan and I, and
we knew that before long one of tbe
rivals must disappear from tbo scene.
Which was It to be?
One evening Horace asked Cicely to
go  with   hini  the following night to
a   eonee��rt.    Cicely  heuitiit*'d  a   mo- j
ment,  with  some    confusion,  it may \
have seemed to his Jealous eye ;   then
she said���
"Any other night, Horace, I shall
be most happy, but to-morrow I shall
not be home until late; 1 shall not
leave Mrs. Leclcre's nt all before 10
o'clock."
" Oh, I suppose you are going out
with the Leclercs, ouly you don't like
to say so," said Horace.
" I am not afraid to acknowledge
anything 1 do I" cried Cicely, with
spirit. " I am not going oat with the
Leclercs."
There wus to have been a musical
evening at    Mrs. Leclerc's on    tbat
eventful Friday, and Cicely   bad beon
asked to take part in it, but in   tbe
morning the family invited had sent
begging    for a postponement on account of   tho ill-health of one of  Its
members.   Then Mrs. Leclerc insisted
that they should go to hear an ora- !
torlo at tbe Albert Hall. Cicely, never j
dreaming of HI, readily accepted to be \
ot tbe party, nud to the Albert Hall
they went.
After the performance they returned '
In tbe brougham, and at Sunnyslde Mr.
l'erclval Leclerc took Cicely into the
house, while Mr. and Mrs. Leclerc went
on to their home,
Meanwhile Horace, having repented
bis ill-manners of the previous day,
went a littio before 10 o'clock to tbe
L-ecIercs' to fotch Cicely, and make
his peace with her. Thero he was In- ]
formed that Mias (ioddard had left
early in the evening. Horace hung
about the house for an hour, with the i
Idea that Cicely might return there;
theu, seized With another notion, ho
walked to Sunnyslde,
There was light iu the studio. He
knocked. The girl who opened the
door said that Cicely was upstnrs.
Up he went. With his bands on the
door, he heard her laughter, lie open- I
ed thc door. Mr. Lec-orc was in the j
middle of a very entertaining story,
and Cicely, with the smile still on her
bright face, was listening with eager
Interest. Joan and I'otter were smiling and attentive also, but Horace
took no notice of them.
At tho sight of his face, ghastly
white with a Jealousy tbat tortured bim to the point of madness, Cicely rose with alarm, and the smile and
color .left her cheek. Doubtless Horace attributed this change of expression to the sense of being discovered.
He bowed coldly, Imt shook hands
with nobody. Mr. l'erclval finished
bis story, and then, seeing that It
would be best to go, he took his de
parture with as much ease as if Horace with his terrible iooas had never
eome. Potter and Joan accompanied him to the door, leaving Horace
and Cicely  together  and  alone.
I heard afterwards what passed between them, hut 1 wish to forget it.
People unner the Influence uf Jealousy do and say things which they
would never bo guilty of in a sane
condition of mind. Tliey are to be
pitied and pardoned. All I will say
is that iu this brief interview Horace
behaved remarkably ill, and Cicely
with a degree of forbearance and
good sense hardly expected in one
of such a thoughtless and light
disposition.
When lie left, Potter came from
the sitting-room, opened tbe street
door, nnd stepped outside with bim.
"Look here, old man," said I'otter,
in his semi-friendly, seml-bostlle tone,
"I don't know what this row's been
about, but I want, to tell you this:
If you nre not In a position to marry
Cicely I don't think you ought to
stand between her and a better
match."
"I do not stand In her way," replied Horace ;: " our engagement Ls
broken. We shall see oach other uo
more."
"And a good Job. too," Putter said
to me. "Tliey have been engaged
two years."
But I did not think that it wns o
good thing; for I knew they loved
each other; nnd hearts are not like
purses, fto be emptied of their old
treasure and refilled with new.
CHAPTER XV.
After the dissolution of partnership,
Mr. Motley compounded with his creditors, and continued business under
the title of Motley and Motley, Three
months later he paid up all that the
creditors ibad lost by the composition. This act of liberality gave an
Immense Impetus to business. No
one could any longer entertain a
doubt as to bis sterling methods. One
heard his praises rung on every side.
"Ah, what nn honest man!" "What
admirable principle, and what remarkable business ability !" "A mau
to be trusted, If any were I" and the
like phrases reached my car. There
were more customers ou the bank
than ever there had been. And then
the extension of the brewery gave
fresh advantages for the develop-
ment of business in that branch. The
profit upon the heavy outlay began
to roll in, and there was nothing
more to pay out. All this was Motley's profit. He took all. I'liere was
no partner to divide the receipts.
And thus, without paying a farthing
for it, the whole business had fallen
Into Motley's hands���enriched even
by Harlowe's sacrifice.
"I told you how it would be, Holderness," Motley said to. me. "It has
turned out Just as I prognosticated.
If Phil, had only kept a cool head
snd "trusted me, ho would have been
richer at this moment thnn ever he
was���hts scruples would all be satisfied, |xnd he would have been more
honored than if, ho hjid never thrown
away his wife's fortune. If I hadj my
way, I would offer hlin a share in
the .concern now, or at any rata
make liim take back the money he
pnld into It. Bnt I can't do that.
I'm tied. It's Motley and Motley
now, you know. Directly my -wife,
heard of tho dissolution she offered
to put ber money into tbo affair.
That enabled me to begin again. But
she was careful that her old enemy
should bo kept out of It, and got a
legal agreement that she should have
a voico in the management of the
bank in consideration of -the money
handed over���in fact, made herself a
partner. So you see how I nra stuck.
Now, all that might havo been obviated but for poor Phil's hastiness
and want of gumption. If be had
only kept his wife's money where It
wns. wo might have borrowed from
that, and boen perfectly independent
of Mrs. Motleys help."
It was plausible enough, this explanation, but somehow I could not
feel towards the man a* I bad felt;
and I saw In his twinkling little gray
eyea an expression of treachery and
cunning which I had not before bus-
pected. Philip must havo shared my
suspicion, for lio avoided Motley, and
was silent when we spoke of him. He
would not spsak ill or well of a man
whom he suspected, yet could not
prove guilty of duplicity  and fraud.
So while one partner sank the other
rose In tbe scab of prosperity.
*s honesty the better policy?���does
retribution -wait upon evil-doers ?���I
was tempted to ask myself .when, seeing Mr. Motley, with hi** great, Jovial,
red face, riding In 'a luxurious carriage, T met Philip returning Irom
his work, fatigued and careworn.
Well, wo shall gee these questions
answered before I lay down my pen.
��� i * * ���
On the other side of tho road, Ju��t
facing the liarlowos' lodgings, there
lived on tho attic floor of a small
house* a widow anil bor child* In
whom Madgo and Philip took a great
deal or interest. She was a pretty,
pale, lady-like little body, the widow,
not more than five-and-twenty
I        should        say: her        child
was a sturdy little fellow, who
Oould just walk, 'being held by* the
hand. Wo thought she must bo a
widow because of the child and thfi
mourning In which thoy were cloth-
<\l. Every morning, except Sundays,
sho wont out with her child at a littio after 8, walking to the end of the
road, whoro she took a Kennington
tram, and returned In the evening
aliout 7. We concluded that she went
out to work���minding a shop, per-
h:ip-, where she could have her child
with her. She always wore gloves
and was neatly drowsed, her collars!
and cuffs and her child's sucks were
exceptionally white for residents in
tlio Lambeth Koad; one would not
have thought she wa.s poor, but for
her living In the nttlc of that dlQtfy
bouse. But even tben one could see
the character of the lodger by the
window curtains edged with cheap
lace, and the pott of mignonette and
pansies on the silt. Wo did not know
her name nor anything about her,
except Irom our own observation. She
seemed to have no friends, and to
avoid msiking acquaintance with her
neighbors. It needed no one to tell
us that she had gone -through trouble,
but though ber face was marked with
anxiety and care, It was not without
a certain bright hopefulness. * She
thinks about her boy, and the time
Mien he will grow to be a fine man,"
said Madge. Indeed, sbe looked quite
happy when Sunday happened to be
fine, and sbo could go for a walk und
give all her thought to tho child.
Our Interest In her grew us time
went on. Almost my first question
when I went to see Madge waa,
"Well, how Ls the Uttle widow?" Cut
Madge was so infatuated with her and
tho child, that Philip used to joke her
in a kindly manner about It. We
could see tdiut sbe was longing to
mako friends with her neighbor and
talk about tho little one. Madge
adored children.
But at this timo her Interest was
heightened by another feeling. Madge
was about to become a mother
also. When I knew this, I
understood why it WM that Philip
sold his furniture and put the money
asido for future needs. Mndge tried to
make acquaintance witb tho young
widow. She watched at the open window until her neighbor aji-ponrod.
and their eyes met, and then she
bowed. Tho widow bowed In return,
but loft tho window at once. Soon
afterwards, Madge artfully contrived
to be near tbe end of tiie road when
the widow stepped out <���*! the tram.
Sbe stopped and spoke, and stooping
down, drow the child to bur nnd kissed
bim. But she saw thnt the mother
was nervous, and reluctant to make
friends, so sbe respected her feelings,
and abstained from making further advances.
The summer came to an end ; autumn
was wot and wretched. Thoro were
days when the Uttle widow did not
leave her home, and others when she
was forced to go out alone.
We saw that sbe was muffled up
closely even when tlie days were mild,
and that sbo kept a handkerchief to
her month In going out and coming
home; her shoulders, too, went bent,
as If her chest were contracted with
pain. Por a whole week we Haw nothing of her.
One day ln November I found Madge
talking with the landlady of her
house*.
"Oh, Mr. Holderness 1" she exclaimed, "our little friend ls ln troublo. I
must go and see her. You wilt wait
here, und tell Philip when be conies
In."
Sbo put on a waterproof and crossed the road. The street door of the
dingy house wus open; a truck stood
by tho kerb.
"The party Is ill. sir," tbe landlady
explained to me; '* she can't pay her
rent, and old Hobeon���that's the landlord, sir, a mean, heartless wretch���
ho told her sbo must go and send for
the broker."
I sat in tbe sitting-room and kept
my eyes on the house. Presently a
dirty-looking fellow came out of the
houso; I saw hhn try a piece of money
between his teeth. Tncn be nodded to
tbo boy wbo waa whistling by the
truck, and thoy both went away. I
believe Madge had discharged the
little widow's debt out of her own
slender means.
About a quarter of an hour afterwards Madge came In, and began to
cry. Philip and 1 snt silent and let
her cry without interruption.
" Poor little soul!" she said, with a
sob, as sbe wiped ber eyes; "I am
afraid, {Philip, dear, We shall never see
her���walking with her child again.
I think she is dying."
"Has she a doctor?" nsked Philip.
"No; she is an out-pntient at the
hospital. But she's too weak to go
there."
Philip put on hi-* bat and went out.
We knew he had gone to find a
doctor.
It    being    half-past     twelve,   nnd
Philip's     dinner-time,    the    servant
brought up    the   beefsteak    pudding
which Madge made whenever I   was
coming to dine with tbem.   She cut a
portion, picking out'some tender raor-,
I sols, and put it    between  .two   hot-
plates at  the    bottom of a basket;*"
I theu she went to hor store cupboard,
; and  added   whatever she  eould   find
j that might  tempt a  delicate person
to eat;  these sbe took    across   the
road, after begging me not to wait
I for ber, but to dine with Philip.  Little
: enough we two men ate, though we
I both  had a weakness for steak-pud-
' ding���especially such as Madge mado.
i    The doctor confirmed Madge's fore-
j tradings.   " She is In a rapid decline,"
I he suid to her, after leaving the room.
j "She cannot live through the winter;
sbe may not bo here when the   new
. year comes."
"Is there no hope?" asked Madge.
"There Is always the hope in these
I cases that the doctor may be in error.
I But it ls necessary to tell you my
I opinion for the Bako of the child, who
; must bo provided for."
I "Still you tbink that perhaps If
i these terrible fogs went away, and n
' little spell of wa,rm sunshine came,
i and If all your orders were carried out
carefully, and tbe patient bad proper
food and attention "
"Ah," said the doctor, smiling at
: her earnest pleading. "Ii the conditions
are made more favorable "   .
"They shall bo favorable," said
Madge, with emphasis. "And now
tell me again what T am to do that I
may forget nothing."
The OOOtOr repeated Ids Instructions, and Madge, cheating herself
with hopes of her owrt creating, re-
turned to tbe patient's bedside with n
lace that carried comfort and gladness,

If the matter be delayed annexation
will surely lake place in tbe early days
of thc incoming Republican adminis

Of the $415.00.1 due from the United

Theie seems to be an impression 'ha'
some of our  fair correspondents com* |
plain of household  duties   as   drudgery '���
and slavery.   We have looked over lhe [
coirespondent**--- carefully to see if it con
tallied auvtbing justifying this view, and
must confess to our inability to so inter 1
pret it.    All, we think, that is intended :
to he. conveyed by   the   terms   used is !
that many make drudges of themselves,
and     therefore    become      si.1 ves    by
���ni-management    of   their   affairs,  or I
by being so unfortunately situated tlut J
thoy have no   tima   whatever for anything else; ancl when that is the case j
we quite agree with them   that   such ;
���1 life is slavish, and the women  who
live it are simply drudges.   A  woman
may like domestic  work, the care ofa
house, and the duties connected   with
it, but if she is so occupied as to exhaust  her   strength and   time so that
she is unfit to enjoy anything else, then j
she  is a slave.    It is so with the farmer
and the business   man.   If   they   find
no time after their   work   is over   to
meet thc de 'nan-is   wh-ch   society has
upon all citizens,   they nre slaves   to
their calling, and simply drudges.    Hut
it  is the  Household  which is on  trial
now.   And the question is not whether
ihe wife should or does delight  in the
proper performance   of its   duties,   but
whether conditions  may not be so improved and   ber work   made so   easy
as to be a pleasure instead of being,
as in some cases, so hard as to make
ber   old   while   >et   young   in   years,

enjoyment and mental improvement.

age, in doors after that hour, unless they
are under ad'iU escort.
1 take the opportunity of bringing this
matter before llie public, and Vouici suggest to our luture municipal law-makers,
when this town is incorporated (whicli 1
tru.-t will be soon) the advisability of con
sidering this, to iny mind, important step.
To teach children orderly and regular
habits, and 10 keep ihem away from llie
bad associations of tlie streets, is surely worthy of the attention of our citizens,
There can be no doubt thai tliis town is
sorely in need of sonic such regulation
for it is fast becoming a scandal that
some of our rising generation are allowed
to roam the streets at niglii, bent on mischief, and are rapidly developing into a
very "tough" clement, as I well know, not
only from the fiequent complaints I have
heard made, but also from my own person
al experience, nnd the sooner this growing
evil is dealt with, the better it will be for
our children and thc more credkahlc for
ourselves. There may be some who will
Ihiok such an ordinance opposed to the
generally accepted ideas ol civilization
���ind freedom. To such I would say, so is
llie intolerable nuisance of a night prowling band of mischievous ant! disorderly
youths. I am therefore, sanguine enough
to believe, sir, thai there .ire many like
yourself who will huve the courage to lend
their aid in helping to mend an unmitigated evil.
I am, sir,
Yours laithfully

To the Editor-
Sir:
It seems to ine rather a piece of follv r-wr-DV n^Ml/CMlCM^r
of the storekeepers in this town keeping I fcVfcnT UUIN V EINI fclNOfc
such Ion),'hours from 8 in the inorninu i FOR    MINERS
until 9 and to o'clock at ni^ht.   In these j	
���tsvs when "eight hours a day" for l.tlwr j
is the cry, why should unfortunate store- I
keepers and their clerks be expected !������>
be at the service of the public so long ?
Are we such a money grabbing lot, so
avaricious to make a dollar that we can
not do as in other towns and close earlier,
and give ourselves and our clerks a little
time for recreation and rest ?
Surely 7 or H o'clock ought to be the
latest hour for the storekeepers to keep
open their stores. In this matter the pub
lie have a duty to perform and that is to
refrain from late shopping. I trust Mr.
Editor, you will have ,| word to say in fa
vor of earlier doting On S nurd ty there
might be an exception made.

AGRICULTURE.
The revival in tho States in the matter oi county fairs its due, doubtless,
to tho growing interest Ln local Institutes ajid agricultural organizations.
They promote -a time of merry making ior tho rural population which i.-*
most salutary, and it is hoped they
will be mado more and moro a holiday time aa the year*-! roll around.
It :���*��� not well to cultivate a restless
Spirit nor make continual changes,
but some ol the mauy cheap excursions to tho South iua,y present new*
fields tor prowesR. it may or may
not make you more contented with
your present lot. A trip away from
home once iu a while is helpful, anyhow.
With an atomiser spray equal parts
of water and oil of lavender about
tho room.**, a.nd no flies will trouble
you ; especially about tho dining room,
even ovor the table linen. The odor
id especially disagreeable to ilies, and
they will not venture in its neighborhood, though tt) most people it has
a fresh and grateful smell.
It is poor economy to leave fodder
in the field alter December; It is better to stop husking a fow days at
the proper time and aire for It. If It
ie desired to husk tho corn before feeding the fodder, this wui bo doue quite
aa handily at the, shod or barn, and
much more comfortably.
For foddor purposes sweet corn is
surely the best. It is a surer crop than
field corn, and will Bt;uul droutlia a
little better. The rows can be closer
and the corn thicker iu tho row;
nearly twice the amount can bo grown
an acre, of better quality, more easily handled, liner -stalks, and it will
be eaten up cloaner.
Lowell's Evergreen and Early Minnesota are good varieties of swetit
corn, also the Egyptian ; the former
oau be cut later, with less liability
of tlie fodder spoiling or the ears
The special
of this kind, generally mares, and
make little fortunes out of their
colts; and uow many of our own
wido awake countrymen have flue
grade draft teams whleh are a pride
and a  profit.

A BOY'S RETORT.
Ouce, when one of Farragutfa gunboats on thc Mississippi was Just going
into action, one of tho powder-monkeys was noticed by an officer kneeling by one of the guns saying his
prayers. The officer sneeringly asked
htm what he was doing, and if he was
afraid. ���
"No, 1 was praying," said ho.
" Well,    what    were you    praying
' Praying," said the lad, " that the
Badly Orippled With 8etatlc* ami hii Interne Sufferer r.,r V.-Hrs-Kor fWOYeWW

Health.
(From the Shelburne Economist.)
Tho completion of tha local telephone
service between Wholburno and Homings Mills by Messrs. John Metcalfe
and W. II. Marlatt, referred to in
theso columns recently, wna the moans
of bringing to the notice ot a reporter
of tho Economist the fact of the remarkable restoration to health some
timo ago of Mr. Motcalfo, thc chief
promoter of the line. For about two
years Mr. Metcalfe was a terrible sufferer from sciatica, aud unable to
work. While not altogether bedfast,
ho was so badly crippled that blis
bent form, as ho occasionally hobbled
about the streets of Hornings Mills,
excited universal sympathy. The
trouble was in one of his hips and
ho eould not stand or walk erect. His
familiar attltudo, as the residents of
Horning s Mills can vouch,    was      a
same way as the prize-money is,
I clpally among the officers."
prln-
oorlng. The special -virtues of sweet | enemy's* bulietslnay"be distributed tiie
corn ior stock are yet undetermined,1 ...
but the  Judder certainly excels    all
others.
Clay or heavy loam soils are best
for gross, and, when ouce well seeded,
will improve, thicken up and bear
heavier croiw for many years ; in fact,
can bo kept in graaa as long as desired If properly immured. We cannot expect to take off heavy crops
for successive years without returning
fertility of some sort to the soli.
Tlo the fodder shocks with binder
twine as soo��i as cut, with stocks
packed close and twine drawn tight,
that tho shock may stand straight
aud turn water. If a shock falls or
blows down it is almost wholly lost.
Careful shocking has much to do with
the value of the fodder.
it will pay to run tho mower over
tlie clover field some time in the early
fail aud let the clippings lie as a
mulch. Keep the stock off if the stand
is weak. It will bo much improved
in the spring by branching out
freely, producing a larger per cent, oi
loaves and less woody stems.
Hay to sell and corn foddor to feed
will be the rule in the west this year.
Thoro is a scarcity of hay in the
ritates, nnd tliere la sure to be a brisk
demand lor it at good prices. Last
year taught bo many valuable lessons
in regard to tlie value oi fodder that
farmers there will sell their hay without any hesitation.
HOUSES.
To-day the   ordinary horse hardly
has a iniee. Life is too short to breed
grade sires or any but the best and
pare bred mares, or any other kind
of stock, for that matter' but, unfortunately, we have not many heavy
draft    mures now,  and   must   begin
to grade up, as we did a generutk-tn
ago.
The  sun.  the   heat,   the   fresh  air,
the activity of respiration induced by
oxerci.se,   develop  the   furcc,    energy,
supple lies.*- and muscular  strength  of
the eolt. Tho��ie raised iu stables may
be  larger in breadth  and amplitude,
but   thoy  can   never     attain   these
more essential elements in confinement.   Like a child, the colt needs to
run   ulMjut,  to   leap  and  play.
When thc people of the States return  to full  woirk  ag.'^in   the   draft
horse's work witl iucrease in the
same proportion. If there is not n

While Protestants and Komau Catholics are wide apart as to certain remedial measures proposed just now,
thoy find common meeting ground
in Dr. Agnew's Catarrhal l'owder.
Take Hamilton alone. This modlclne
has beeu used by Presbyterians, like

] and Kev. John Scott, D. D., by
! Episcopalians as with the ltev.' W. tt.
| Wade, and Rev. Chas. K. Whitcoml>e;
i by the well-known Baptist Rev. (L
Anderson ; by prominent members of
the Methodist Church, and by the
Rev. Father Hlnehey, aud mauy of
hie parishioners. They all tell the one
story of the great good this one medicine has done them. The same story
has come from the most prominent
in Toronto and elsewhere. It is unlike any other catarrhal remedy,
simple, easy nnd pleasant to
take, and quick in a cure. It will
give relief within ten minutes In Hay

prescribe Scott's Emulsion of
Cod-liver Oil and Hypophos-

patients can tolerate it for a
long time, as it does not upset
the stomach nor derange the

Scott's Emulsion is as much
easier to digest than the plain
oil as milk is easier to digest
than butter. Besides, the fish-

and it is almost palatable. The

TIIE MIRAGE EXPLAINED.
In the course of his second lecture
on " Light" at thc Royal Institution,
Lord Ruylclgh spoke ot the cause of
mirage, which, It appears, is not clearly explained ln works on optics. Ganot
says it Is a phenomenon o! retraction
which results trom the unequal density of tho different layers ol tho air
when they arc expanded by contact
with the heated soli. Lord Rayleigh
is reported as saying that the appearance of water on brood and hot
sandy places was duo to the tact that
close upon the ground there lay a
��tratmn of rarclled nir. A ray of
light fell very obliquely on to it, nnd,
being totally reflected, reached the
eye of an observer much us If the
reflection took placo from water. The
phenomenon wus, strictly speaking,
ono of refraction, although the effect
was the same as If they were complete reflection on one surface. He
mentioned that because he did not
think It was to bo found ln nnv of the
books on optics, and because Irom a
theoretical point ot view It was of
great Importance. Just as a glass lens
formed an linage on tho screen, so the
crystalline lenB ol the eyo formed an
Image of external objects upon the
retina (the sensitive surface nt the
back ot the eyes), and so the Image
on the retina was Inverted. Much unnecessary speculation had been made
ln that connection, for people supposed that, because of this Inversion,
it waR a mystery that we did not see
everything upside duwn. The lace was
we did not see the Image on the retina at all���we only Ielt it; but It
we could seo the linage on sofincbody
olse'B retina, then we should see It
Inverted.
SAVED BY A LASSO.
Death In terrible form stared 13-
year-old Charlie ltouser in the lace tor
a tlmo yesterday atteruuon, but he
was rescued Just as his companions
had given up all hopo in a manner
as thrilling as it was unique. The

Goorgo Kennedy, Iio.vb of about his

seemed liko a patch ol quicksand, con-
coaled under thu suit, sticky mud,

Despite his efforts to extricate himself, young Homier was unable to on-
capo from thu treacherous soil, nnd
became alarmed when he found him-
soil slowly sinking, lie called to hla

When ho reached the scene tho

up to his armpits, and was slowly
but surely sinking, Capt. Sohofleld
took a rail from tho fence at tho
roadside and pushed It out to the

been attracted by the cries for help,

Realizing tho gravity of thn situation, tho ollicer quickly procured a
ropo, and, making It into a loop,
throw it out to young llouser, nt the
same time Instructing him to slip the
noose around his body under the arms.
The boy obeyed and held on to the
ropo frantically. Fastening the
other end around bis waist Byrne remounted his horse, and, putting spurs
to his animal, literally dragged the
boy out of the clutches of death,

Thomas Hubbard's Suggestion s
Published 100 Years Ago
HIB   TREATISE    ON    "JAGS."
Don't imagine the temperance question is a modern Issue I Tho wisdom
and propriety of drink wore matters of discussion one hundred years
ago. An old New York resident,
whilo curiously ransacking a time*
stained ancestral trunk last week,
exhumed a queer Uttle book which
boro tho publication date ot 1795.
Authorship was credited to Thomas
Hubbard, and tho contents were devoted to "valuable secrets and approved directions trom the best artists relative to wine."
It was with a chuckle that he observed that tbo book was carefully
concealed under several theological
volumes, Ior he remembered that tradition recited that his veaerable ancestor, although a man ol religious
convictions, was not averse to accumulating that which ln later days
became to be known as a "Jag."
He dusted the book and carried It to
his club, where Its "secrets" were revealed to lei low-members. It ls related that copious memoranda were
made, with a view to future, utilization. Here are a few ol the book's
suggestions, ln the hope that they
may provo ol value to the descendants
of those wbo tuok advantage of them
In tho dayB when "reform" police
commissioners were unknown:
REMEDIES FOR INTEMPERANCE.
"To euro those who are too much
addicted to drink .vine, put In a
sufficient quantity of wine three or
four eels, which leavo there till quite
dead, Givo that wine to drink to
the person you want to rotorm, and
ho or sho will be bo much disgusted
ot wine that, though they formerly
made use ot It, they will now nave
aa aversion to it.
"Another method, no less certain:
Cut In the spring a branch of vine,
in the time when tbe sap ascends
most strongly, and receive in a cup
the liquor which runs from that
branch. If you mix some of that
liquor with wine aaid give it to a
man already drunk, lie will never
relish wine afterward.
"To prevent one from getting intoxicated with drinking, tako white cabbages' and four pomegranates' Juices
���two ounces ot each with one ol vinegar. Boil all together lor some time,
to the consistence o( a syrup. Take
one ounce of this belore you are going
to drink and drink afterward as much
ajid as long as you please.

Scientific aiul Callnary Point of View,
John Gilmer Speed, Dr. Cyrus EdBoa
(ex-President of the New York Board
of Health) and Mra. 8. T. Rorer learnedly discuss '* Tlie Potato us a Dally
Diet,'* in November Ladles' Home
Journal,'- and pretty conclusively
prove that the humble but popular
tuber is not a healthful article or
food. Mr. Speed asserts that the
potato as a fond is not uearly sn valuable as we have very generally es-
toempil it to lie. It is quite deficient in nitrogen, and as a solo diet
is therefore unsuitable. It is hard tu
digest and- therefore shuuld lie partaken nf very sparingly by all, save
those who live activo lives out-of-
duors. ��� ��� ��� The potato provokes our great national aliment, dyspepsia, and the sooner the consumption of tiie mealy tubers begins the
sooner will tin; drca,d fangs nt the
dyspepsia appear.
Dr. 1'dson 8iua rejoinder tn Mr. Speed
writes : " 1 must quite agree witli
Mr. Speed in his condemnation of the
potato. I tuu sorry tu have to say
anything against tlio humble tuber,
but the truth, especially when it is
scientific, and more especially moilico-
sclentlftc, must Is; tuld. It Is certain; no one can at all timos oat the
potato with tho assurance thnt It will
do him no harm. * * * The
Jiractice of feeding potatoes to infants and young children cannot lie
too severely condemned, A potato
diet may not kill them outright at
once, but it is certain to Injure their
digestive organs permanently and effectually, so as to make their lives
a burden to themselves and those
who are brought ln contact with
them. Dr. Edson also contends that
the potato Is very'deficient in nutritive qualities, and has less value as
an article of fond than must nther
vegetables and cereals.
Mrs. lturer writes : " I am not a
potato prohibitionist, hut I tlrmly believe that potatoes shuuld lie served
only with strongly-concentrated nitrogenous food, such ns roasted beef, or,
for the vegetarian, with beans, peas
nr lentils.

ideas ou Colonel Ingersoll. The Rev.
Dr. McCube, of the Board of Home
Missions ot the Methodist Episcopal
Church, Is the must persistent ex-
horter ol them all. He writes a letter and leaflet every month, ln which
he points out to the great unbeliever
that there Is yot time lor him to join
the Methodist Church. His latest
letter, written a short time ugo, is lu
part as follows:
" Since you began to lecture against
tho Bible thirty years ago the Methodist Church lias increased greatly,
while other denominations have grown
also, We now have 2,81.0,000 .communicants, ft gala ot 1,800,000. Our
Church property lias increased in

A noar-Bighted friend of Colonel In-
gersuil sends him each week tlie Bible
lessons trom her copy uf a country
paper. She corresponds regularly,
and she is one of the few religious
enthusiasts Colonel ingersoll ever answered. The letters aud tracts are
dumped unccremoulouBly into the
waste basket without readiug. But
this particular old lady got a letter
that almost brought her to New
York. Sho intended to come Irom her
native town, but lack of finances may
have caused her putting off the trip.
In cutting out tho Biblo lessons to
send Colonel IngerHoll uno week, ahe
pasted tho clippings on a sheet of
note paper. Inadvertently Bhe reversed one of the clippings, and when
Colonel Ingerfloll got his letter the
Biblo leeson read like this:

gnve His only begotten Son, that

YAWNING AND ITS USES.
A Doctor Heconiwemls It as  a Muscular
I'MTCIS...
It Is unnecessary to describe In
what consists the act of yawning, an
every one Is familiar with the slow
and deep inspiration, accompanied by
separation of the Jaw boties, and followed by equally deep and prolonged
expiratiun, which Is also more or less
sonorous. The last is attended as
well by stretching of the limbs, with
the body and head well thrown back.
It is a modlilcntlon ol the respiratory
act, or, In other words, it is breathing with a spasmodic or convulsive
eond'.tlon of Its two periods, for
yawning Is, like all spasmodic nets,
quito involuntary. During the net ot
yawalng thc air is taken in nlmost
exclusively by tho mouth, which ls
widely open, tho posterior orifices of
the nasal fossae being partly closed
by the soft palate, which contracts
spasmodically and is drawn up toward the top part of the pharynx.
This contraction of the soft palate
lasts during the whole act of yawning, and only ceases when the mouth
closes. Yawning nlso causes more
or Icsb complete, but momentary, obliteration of the passage loading to
the middle ear and called the Eustachian tube.
Yawning Ib Involuntary, and yet it
is possible up to a cortaln point to
hide by will power a certain portion
of it, to shorten It by suddenly closing
the mouth by an energetic reaction
and by preventing the sonorous expiration with which it usually ends.
The most elementary rules of good
breeding forbid yawning in tlie presence nf other people, but a Belgian
physician, M. Naegoli, has taken up
the cudgels against those mice, basing hla opinion on tho physiological
phenomena of yawning, which he recommends na an excellent method of
respiratory gymnastics,
According to his ideas, yawning
brings into action all the rcspiratury
muscles nf the'chest and neck, nud
slinuid, on that account, bo considered as the most natural form uf rcspiratury exercise; im thinks that
evory person shuuld have a good
