MUKDEU   MOST   20UL
Vancouver, April 27,���Louis Pomer-
low, I''ieni:liiii;iii, was most foulb murder
ed here several (lays ago. His body
was tinly found last Wednesday. Andrews, liis shack-male, discovered his remains scarcely twenty yards from his
sli.ick. The body wnsti rnbly nniiil ttcil;
the head had been split open with nn ,ixe
li had been raised from the ground by a
stone, around which wood had been piled
ami set mi fire, 'lhe Htimos had burnt
the hair from lhe head before lhey had
been quenched by lhe rain. The murderer evidently hoped to dispose of tlie
body by burning it up. Tlie remains
were much decomposed having been
where lhey were found for six days. A
man who knew Pomerlow ultimately, and
who disappeared from thc city a week a-
go is supposed in have murdered lhe unfa: lunate man 10 scuue $75 sent to him
by his Quebec friends. Evidence against
the suspected man. though circunist in-
cial, is said to be most convincing.
When Pomerlow was murdered he was
in ill health and weak, so that but little
resistance could have been made, and he
must have fallen an easy victim to thc
fiendish brutality ofthe murderer. Thc
coroner's jury found a verdict of murder
against unknown party. The police aie

HONOLULU   OF   TO   DAY.
Hj Edgar ICtiiiiii.
Were I writing bin two brief years ago
it would have been under one ofihese titles: Honolulu, ilic Paradise uf the Pacific
The Land of Sunshine Fruit and Flower, The Ideal Tourist Resort of ihc World
Such it was, but its Goldsmith says,
"PI  fares the  land 10 hastening ills
a prey,
Where wealth accumulates and men
decay.
The;e past two years have brought a
great change over Honolulu. The untiring energy of the Sugar King, Spreck-
e!s, has turned the Island into a v 1st sugar plantation; and where His Highness
dues not see til 11 raise sugar, other monopolies of equtl-nwer nourish, Itisihe
same old la:e ol conquest, the ever sweep
ing and onward march of mercantile progress, ihe nnnihila ion ofthe names, and
the atl ance 0: civilization. "Down with
monarchy am! up with deniocrai y" is ihe
cry there now, a I in lhe lace of strenuous
opposition Ir "ti lite n cues. Q iceit I_.il-
Hiukalaii' ha- li-eit dep ised, under the
democratic bin as a crimi nil and yet her
laniily have reigned since 1701! The
line of monnrchs to wheh she belonged
was founded by chief Kamehamcha in
171)6, af er he h id subjugated llie islands.
His successors assumed his name as
ihe royal iiie, and live I' uneliainehas
reigned in succession until 1872, The direct tine then having beci.me extinct
a nephew ol Kaiiieliaiueha 1 tanned William I.in lillo was elected hy the natives,
to the throne. Ile reigned a year when
he was sucreded by his nephew David
Kalak 1111, who frequently visited the Uni
led Slates and twice journeyed in legal
Slate through Eurupc. Under Ins reign
Hawaii made substantial progress 111
irade and civilization, lie selected twenty
of lhe best Kanakas and had them edi-
i ued ,u tne most noted colleges of Europe and then established them in author
ity 111 Hawaii. His wife,Queen Kapmlaiu,
visited England at Her Majesty's jubilee
Icsliviles 111 1SK7. David I. ilakaua died
without issue in I'ioi.nnd was succeeded
by his sisier Queen Lydia l.ilniokal.ini.
Her reign was briel and stormy She
reaped Hie harvest ol discontent sown by
ihe intriguing Americans. K dakaundid
all he coaal to foster a feeling ol universal
harmony anion}; ihe natives and loieign
ers, but after his dealh the Human was be
seiged by wealth and offers of fabulous
prosperity il she would but cater to the
wishes ol the men who owned the plantations and others who were seeking to
siibiett the monarchy and annex ihe
islands to the United Slates. Possibly
the Queen's teal policy will never be
known; hut that she was "acilh.iing in
her plan, is sure. A woman of line pies
dice, with a temperament which alone
can flourish in such tropic ciimes, she
had many lovers, without doubt, many a.
inong them Americans of high mercantile
standing, and thus she was grudua ly a.i-
dialed Irom 1 tie direct care ul lhe natives
to a policy of semi acquiescence wuh the
American capitalists; still thc woman ao
Queen loved her people and they lined
, ''cr and slill do so; and even were she
I Pin out of ihe way by death or intrigue
]  lo iiioirnw, her beautiful niece, Princess
I  Vicioria Kuwekiu Kuiulana Lunalilo Ka-
Ltinmulaliliipalapa, would be lhe choice of
lhe loyal   Kanakas for the throne when
the occasion arises and the time is lipe
lor another revolution.   The Kanakas are
susceptible ol high  education, are bravi
in war .oul of good business ability, and
nui so much under the domination ofthe
Kahunasi'wilch doctors) as lhey were two
years ago.    The Honolulu of to day is just
between   two   tires;���the   natives   want
their native  monarchy  and  the   whites
want either lhe Povisional   government
or annexation, and  before long another
struggle of an open nature will be inaugu-
niieu.   Already in Spreckel's plantations
at Mam the Kanakas and Japanese are
shewing  open discontent, and the Dole
government is kept on the " qui vive "
all lhe lime fearing a vast native uprising.
\\ hat after all, i�� this Dole   Provisional
government ��� now known as  the Rcpub
in: of Hawaii ��� but a coterie of men who
are there for the wealth lo be madethrough
theii position of vantage.?   They are not
patriots;   Hawaii   is   not   their  country
either by ad pii'in or birth; lhey are as
much mercantile directors of a monopolistic scheme as Claus Spreckels himself.
They are 1101 governing for glory, for
the greatest good   lo  the greatest num
ber; ii is no: a g ivernnicnt of lhe people
and therefore sooner or later, the Kanakas ( who are being educated higher, both
in moral ethics and mercantile tact every
day ) wiil  arise   and   assert   their  just
claim tn an equitable government nf their
country.    So  far   as   business prospects
for Honolulu, I think that ihe laic rebellion has Clashed  trade  credit   for some
months or may be a year     Those who
arc doing well there now are those who
are in power ��� politically, or by their
vast holdings in the islands.    'Ihe isies
are as pretty, lhe Iruit is as abundant and
luscious, the ground as   productive,  the
natives as InViil as iwo years ago; bin lor
a nnn 10 visit Honolulu with a small capita! and seek lo make a business footing
at present I think  is  vain.    Labour  is
chiefly clone by the natives, Chinese, and
Japanese.    Some   of   these   arc   highly
skilled; and lhe islands are bound light in
the grasp of Spreckels &   Co.; therefore
for men wiih limited resources or none,
lo   buck   against    such    a combination
would be follj,    I think there will he a
great revulsion ol feeling soon in the Islands and then iln* government, whether
royalist or republican, or the island be annexed, will he freed from the grasp ofthe
'mercantile monopolists.    Should such a
change conic 1 think thc islands would of
fcr a good place for those loving the beau
ties of nature and attentive to thc exigencies of business.   Commercial credit will
be re-established and  Honolulu decking
ihc fair Pacific like a gem  111   Nature's
bosom, will become the home of an nidus
trious,   law abiding, and even Christian
people, taking rank again as a progress-

UNDER A CLOUD.
��� THRILLING TALE OF HUMAN LIFE.
[CHAPTRR XLVII.
FLA8H1NO BACK TO LIFE.
Brettison leaped from his chair, aod
Stratton literally staggered baok against a
glass caae so violently that a figure upon it
toppled over and fell with a crash, as it
emblematic of another downfall of all
hope.
For it aeemed incredible. Little more
than an hour before they had left this man
apparently a helpless imbecile, unable to
concentrate his mental faculties save upon
one point, and only at certain times upon
that, at all others hopelessly blank. While
now the vacuity had apparently departed,
his face looked eager and animated, and
the helpless log had turned into a danger*
ons enemy, whose fresh coming upon the
scene completely upset all calculations,
aud the question stariug them in the face
was how to act next.
For it was quite plain ; so long as the
man had gone on tn his quiet, regular
track, with his nurse in attendance, and
hia invalid-chair waiting to take him a
short distance every morning, his mind
had remained blank ; but though he had
mado no sign���though he had apparently
not beon in any way impressed by Strau
ton'*" company���beneath the calm, dreamy
surface the old man bad boen evoked, the
thoughts lying dormant had suddenly been
awakened ; and with the last scene of
whioh he was conscious, before the shot had
prostrated body and mind at one blow,
oaae more vividly before his mind, he had
risen from bis seat during his nurse's
absence, and made straight tor the chain*,
bora, bent upon finishing the task upon
which he had set his mind.
As he mounted the stain, nearly every*
thing was aa olear as on the day when he
had presented himself. Only one matter
was confused, aud, strangely enough, that
was the point upon which, during hiB
imbeoile condition, he had beeu able to
dwell���to wit, his wound. One aet of
ideas swept away the other, and he could
only go back to the moment when he had
presented that revolver ut Stratton.
And now, as he entered the room and
spoke, it was to him tho same day and the
continuation of his interview with Stratton, It puzzled him a little that he should
have had to ooine through the streets to
continue that scene, but not much, for his
mind had beeu gradually opening out from
the time he left Queen Charlotte Road,
aud it was only when ho reached Stratton's
door that he had gained its full expansion-
He was a little surprised, too, at seeing
Brettison there. The" latter had come in
suddenly like oue in a dream, but he did
not let it trouble him. If Stratton was
willing to let a third person share the
secret, that was hiB lookout. Brettison
was evidently not connected with the
police, and lie felt that the power lie held
made hitn more than a match for both.
He smiled as he saw the effect his arrival
had produced on the occupants of the
chamlj-ers, and looked sharply from one to
the other before turning, and turning the
bolt of the inner door into its socket. Then
his hand went suspiciously to his pocket
and then to his breast. Not finding what
he sought, be looked at the table and the
floor in search of it.
He shook his head (hen as if to clear his
mind, and turned to Brettison.
"Who are you ?" lie said sharply Friend
0f his���a friend of the lady? Why have
you come? Don't matter. If he doesn't
mind, it's nothing to me. (let the old
man and the aunt, and my wife too, if
you like, for she is my wife mind, You
can't get out of that���my wife, Mrs.
Janies Barron. Do you hear, Stratton?���
Mrs. James Barron."
Stratton uttered a peculiar sound,
between a groan and a cry of rage, and he
took a step toward the man, who drew
himself up threateningly.
"No nonsense," he said, with a fierce
snarl. "No games or you'll repent it. I'm
playing high, and I'll stand no hu nbug.
Look here, old man," ho continued, turning to Bretiison," you Bit down there,
whoever you ate* I don't want to hurt
you. I warn you, for 1 may turn rusty.
What you've got to do is to take a sensible
view of the case, and advise him to do the
same.    Sit down."
He spoke as fiercely as if ic wero to an
obstinate dog, and Brettison sank baok iu
au easy-oh air, looking stunned,
" That's right. Now you, Strutton,
you'd better squat down, too. I've como
on particular business. J expected you to
turn nasty, and I'm quite prepared."
He tapped his breunt Where Du had full
for the revolver, and a look of low cunning
crossed bis heavy tace,
Stratton also sank into a ohair*���not so
much iu obedience to the man's words as
to gain time and settle upon some plan of
action.
"Come, that's sensible," said the man
Hmiling. "I see we shall come to good
terms suitable to all parties. I hate quarreling, specially whon all the good curds are
in my hand. It's like being forced to
take a cowardly advantage ot thu other
aide."
Brettison turned a hopeless look upon
Stratton, and the man saw it and said
sharply :
"Never mind him. I'll tell you, as yon
were not here. I propose a handsome sum
down. Hallo! he has pocketed those
notes that wero on the table, But it doesn't
matter.they're easily brought out. A hand
some sum down, and a regular quarterly
payment. He lius only to agree to that
and James Barron goes about in the dan
and he nover sees him. It'll be jus* as if
James Barron  was shot and drowned, as
'The Foreland one dark night about a year
ago. Ugh ! it was rough work," he added,
with a shudder, "and I deserve a little
extra for leaving the lady alone for so long.
Now, then, isn't that a fair offer?"
Brettison's lips moved as he sat there
perfectly prostrated, wishing that in his
zeal he had not interfered ; for had he not,
the man before them would have been dead
and powerless to work all this evil���unless
discovery had made him a more deadly
enemy still,
"I say, isn't that a fair offer ?" he repeated. "Silence gives consent There
we are, then. Come, Stratton. They must
hi ready to start for the churoh by this
time, so look alive and let's get the business done. Just a few strokes of the pea,
the handing over of some til thy lucre in the
shape of notes-���Bank of England, mind,"
he said with a peculiar laugh, "none of
your Russian rubles. By jingo, what
notes those were, though. They didn't find
'em out for years.   Well I''
Ho looked from one to tho other as they
sat watching him in helpless dismay.
11 Come ; don't foul. You are keeping
the lady waiting, and old Jerrold is a re*
L'ulur Tartar, I can tell you. He will not
'itinul any nonsense. I know him of old.
Como, what is it to be ?"
Ho looked fixedly at Stratton, as if urging him to speak, but no words aame.
" I say, what is it to be ?" cried the man
fiercelj. " No shilly-Bhally ! Don't put me
out, or I shall be mora nasty than you like.
There, there, don't let's qnarrel, gentlemen," he ciied, changing hia tone. " We're
all men of the world, and we've got to deal
with an ugly difficulty. Let'.-! settle it, sensibly. I'm not ry for you, Stratton. It's disappointing for you to have a dead man oome
to life and claim his wife just aB you are
going to tike the pretty widow to the
church ; but these accidents will occur, and
when they do let's repair damages the best
way we can. Well ; why don't you speak;
don't let me do all the talking."
Stratton drew a deep breath,
" Oh, it's of no uae to sigh over it, sir,
not a bit. Nothing to aigh for. Come,
hang it all, Myra Barron's worth a few
hundreds down, and a little income for her
lawful lord. I don't want her, but 1 can't
afford to sell her too cheaply���hang the
thing I"
He gave his head an uneasy jerk, and
his hand played about his neck and the
back of his right ear for a few moments,
as if something troubled him. But it
passed off directly, and he looked from one
to the other agaiu as he took a chair, turned
it, and supporting himaelf by propping
himself with the back.
"Now then; the parson's waiting, and the
carriages and the people. Drink my health
after its all over, and think to yourself
I've behaved like a trump. Write out
a chock, and send the old man here
to cash it, ouly look here, old
fellow, no games, no tricks. You'll play
fair��� or I shall make it pretty unpleasant
for all concerned, I can tell you. All right,
you'll be square. You can't afford to play
tricks. Now, then, we aio agreed, eh?
That's right. Better than having a furious
row about nothing.    What do you say?
" 1 was about to speak to my friend, sir,"
suid   Stratton  quietly.    Then turning to
Brettison���" Now what do you think; we
must completely alter our plans."
" Yes," eaid Brettison, with a sigh.
" Make  your plans, gentlemen,   when
you've settled  with me," said the man
sternly, and he jerked ooe hand up to hi
neck again, and withdrew it with agestur
of annoyance.    " Come, Stratton, it'a onl
a few lines written  wilh a  pen,  and yo
win all you  want.    Where do  you kee
your check-book?   In your table-drawer ?
"There is only one way aut of the  difficulty, Brettison," said Stratton   with  a
sigh.
" Only one," said the old man sadly,
"Bravo, that's common sense," oriod the
man.    " Sound  wisdom.    1 told  you  ao.
Out with that check-book at once.
"I'm afraid, sir," slid Stratton sternly,
" lhat wo are at cross purposes."
" What do you mean?"
"That no money would over buy your
silence, even if I were disposed to play the
part of scoundrel.    You will get no hush
money from me."
"What?"
" There is only one way out of this difB*
culty."
"Oh, indeed !" Baid the man sarcastically j
"and that is������"
"To hand you over to the police."
"What?"
"You heard my words, air 1 I need not
repeat them. The prison Ib tho ouly plaoe
for sueh aa you, where the power of doing
mischief is heyond you. Brettison, go
down and fetch a policeman ���two���at
once."
"Let him stir, and I'll send a bullet
through his skuil," cried tho man fiercely,
as his hand was thrust behind him beneath
his coat.
"Go at once, Brettison, I'll take care he
does not harm you."
"Don't listen to him, you, sir," oried the
lOOUndrol- "I warn you; you stir from
that chair and you're a dead man l"
"My dear Stratton," said Brettison,
rising from his seat.
"Go at once ! Never mind his threats,"
said Stratton fiercely,
"All right, I've warned you," said the
man, drawing back liis lipa from hia leetli
like some wild animal ubout to bite, and
stepping quickly to the door be stood near
it with his hand behind him still, as if
about to draw a revolver from his hip
pocket.
Brettison did not stir.
"He haa a pistol there," he whispered.
" Of course. Suppose I was coming on
a job like this, to make my geutleman there
disgorge, and not have a mate to back me ?
Now, then, both of you ; it's of no use to
get into a passion. You threaten police.
I checkmate you with the little tool I have
here���my reserve force. There, you had
better take it quietly, Stratton. What are
a few hundreds to you ? I give up the girl
and her fortune ; what more do you want?
As for myself, I only wish for enough to
li ve oom fortably and in peace without
troubling anybody. There, let's talk auain
like men of the world. You put my back
up wheu you begin talking all that nonsense
the papers Baid., in an attempt to escape off about the police. Be sensible, Mr. Stratcon.
I've had one dose of over yonder that was
not pleasant. I dou't wan't to get on trial
for shooting you���if caught."
He said the last words with a forced
laugh, and took a step or two forward in a
jaunty fashion, in wonderful contrast with
his manner sn hour or so before.
"Now, then, Mr. Stratton, we'll forget
all that, please. Sit down, as I said before
and write that check."
Stratton stood motionless in the middle
of the room with his eyes fixed upon his
visitor; and his strength of mind and determination seemed to grow rapidly. The
old nervous horror was gone, and, quite
equal to his task, he never for a moment
removed his eyes from his adversary,
"Come, we're wasting time, Mr, Stratton.
You're wanted yonder. No more shilly.
shallying, please; that check."
"Fetch the police, Brettison," said Stratton sternly ; and, in obedience to the order,
Brettison took a step forward, while the
savage aspect came again iuto the ex-con
vict's countenance as he took a step baok
and oovered the door.
"No, you don't," he said, making
gesture aa if tugging a pistol from his
pocket, "I warn you both, I'm a desperate
man. I've been skulking about for over a
twelve*month now, waiting for my chance,
and it's eome. I'll have that money before
I go. Write out that check, aud get it
cashed. Send him, I aay again, to get the
money ; and aa for you," he snarled, as he
turned hia eyes on Brettison, "you play
any games, you so much as look at a police*
man while you are out, ami I warn you
he'll suffer for It before you can break in
hero with any of your cursed hounds."
"It's of no use," aaid Brettison hoarsely.
" Let him aay how muoh he wants, and I'll
write a check and get the money."
" Hah I That's talking sense," said the
man exultantly, but never for a moment
relaxing his watchfulness���keeping his eyes
upon Stratton, but noting as well Brettison's actions as he took out his pucketbook
and drow a blank check from one of the
folds.
" How muoh must I draw this tor, Mr.
Cousin ?" he said hurridly.
"Cousin? Who's Mr. Cousin ? Draw
it to James Barron, Esquire. No. What
for ? Draw it to yourself. Fivo hundred
pounds, now."
Brettison shrugged his shoulders, and
moved toward the table.
" Stop !" cried Stratton firmly. " What
are you going to do ?"
" Give him tho money," said Brettison.
" You see ; we muat."
" Fetch the police," repeated Stratton.
" I oannot leave you and go myself."
"But the man is armed," said Brettison.
"My dear boy, he is desperate."
"I tell you, I wiil protect you, min.
Now, come on."
Ue took a step forward, and the ex-convict gave a fierce t-ug to draw his weapon,
but stopped, for Brettison seized his frieud,
and held him back.
"The pistol ! Mind I" he cried.
"He has no pistol," roared Stratton,
dragging himaelf free ; and, seizing the
man by the collar with both hands, he
flung him aside. "Now, then, the police
at once."
Brettison rushed to the door; but stopped
Bhorc to gaze in wonder at the group before
him.
For as if Stratton's touch had discharged
all power from the man he had seized, the
fierce look faded from his face, which grow
heavy, vacuous, and dull ; his legs trembled
beneath him, and he lurched forward, and
was only saved from falling by a rapid
movement on Stratton's part us he swung
him into an easy-chair, where his enemy
Bank back with his head lyiue over on one
shoulder, and hia leaden eyes staring heavily at the floor.
The strength which had animated him
with the flush of memory which had come
back, had passed away, and he waa once
more the feeble imbecile, alowly raising
hia hand to hia neck, where his fingert
wandered about the scar of his wound ;
while at that moment there was faintly
heard on the staircase the cheery humming-
over of a Bcrap from an opera, followed by
voices and steps on the stone landing,
which halted at the door.
Then came a long, rolling knook, followed by a merry  laugh, and Stratton, with
a quick movement,  raised  Ills '      '    -id
whispered *
" Hush I"
CHAPTER XLVIIL
TO SAVE HER,
The knock was repeated as Brettfsou
and Stratton stood gazing at each other,
and then at the miserable imbecile before
them in the chair,
At that moment a familiar voice, muffled
by the doors, but still silvery and olear,
said :
" No use ; not at home,"
"One more try!" came plainly to their
ears, followed by a cleverly executed roulade with the li.ile brass knocker.
Then there was a short pause, nod the
rattle o* the little copper-plate of the
letter-box as if something had been dropped
in ; the babble of merry voices, and descending steps.
Strati on waited till the last Bound had
died out, when he opened tho inner door,
and took out two cards.
" Kdie ami Guest," he aaid, aa he came
back and reelosed llie door.
Just then a line or two in pencil caught
his eye, and he read :
"Come to my looms as soon as you oan.
News.
" P, O. "
" Imp -BBiblo?" muttered Stratton, tossing the cards on to the tablo. " Now,
Brettison, wcimist uot at onoe,"
Yes. Yes; of course. But, my dear lad,
what a pity yuu found me, and 1 took you
there."
" Too late to talk of that, man," aaid
Stratton, who waa full of euergy now as he
Btood frowning. " But have you ever had
any scene like this before? I mean has he
returned to liis former self?"
"No. He has always been as yuu aaw
him this morning. His memory was a
blank as to the past. Your coming and
tho sound of your voice must have revived
it all."
"But he made not the faintest sign of
recognition."
"No; but we cannot understand the
working of the brain. It was, perhaps,
the expiring effort of his reason, for look at
him now."
"Expiring!" oried Stratton. "Yea;
but how many more Hashes of reason may
spring up beforo the light goes right out?"
Brettison gazed at tho man in a perplexed
way, and bent over and touched him, bat
there was no sign.
"Tbia settles it," aaid Stratton at last
" We muBt act at onoe,"
" Yes.   What shall we do?"
" Vou aee, he may have a hundred returns
of hiB memory, and come here again   and
again, threatening and making demands ;
and if he has reason enough at these times
to come here, what is to prevent his going
np to the admiral's and making a terrible
scene there?"
Brettison nodded,
" Yes," he aaid hopolesBly. " What,
indeed 1 Malcolm, my dear lad I thought
by going into hiding with him,and devoting
myaelf to hiB care, I was doing you a great
service; but I'm getting old and weak, I
suppose. I will go by ail you aay now. I
haven't an opinion of my own,"
" You did everything you could for me."
said Stratton warmly ; " and you muat go
on helping me atill,"
"I will do anything if you will only
trust me,"
" Trust you," oried Stratton reproachfully.    " There, we must aot at once,"
" What do you propose doing?"
" Making sure that the man haB no  further opportunity of doing harm to anyone."
" You will not hanJ the poor wretch
over to the police ?"
"No," said Stratton sternly. "I cannot;
tie ia her Husband. That blow must not
come from me. Either you or I must
always be with him abroad."
"Yes, it would be beat. Beyond reach
of doing harm. Where shall I take
him? "
"We will take him across to France
first," said Stratton, emphasizing the firat
word, "Let's get him to St. Malo, aud
then aloug the ooast to aome secluded
fishing village, till we can think out a
better plan."
"Good ; and when wiU you atart?"
"At once���that is, to-night.    You could
be ready ?"
"A man who can draw a little money ia
alwaya ready," replied Brettison, smiling.
"Then I'll take him back with me in a cab,
pack up some thinga, and you will join ua
in timo to catch the train which meets the
Southampton boat thiB evening."
"No, Leave him with me," said Stratton
firmly. "Go aud get your luggage ready,
and call for me with a cab at nine; that
wilt be plenty of time for us to catch the
trsin."
"But���er���leave you���with  him?" said
Brettison hesitatingly.
Stratton laughed bitterly,
"Don't be afraid, old fellow." he said, "I
ahall not try to murder him thia time."
"My dear Malcolm !" cried the old man
reproach fully.
"Well," said Stratton, smiling sadly ;
"if you did not exactly think that,you had
some hazy notions ot its heing unsafe to
leave me with my incubus."
"I���that    is "    faltered    Brettison
weakly.
"There, say uo more, He's safe with me.
I shall not try to buy her freedom at such
a cost.    You know that."
"At nine o'clock, then," said Brettison
hastily. "You aro sure you will not mind
being left with him ?"
"Mind?" said Stratton with a smile.
"Yes, I mind it, but it is our duty, old
fellow ; and we are going to do that duty
to the end,"
lie wrung his old friend's hand as he saw
him off, and then, with a complete change
coming over his couiitonance, he carefully
locked the door, placed the inner key in
his pocket, and walked steadily across to
where his unwelcome visitor lay back in
his seat, with his hand still playing furtively about tho red scar behind his ear.
His eyes stared in a leaden way at tbe rich
carpet ; and, as Stratton followed them he
shuddered, and the whole scene of that
terrible night came baok, for the eyes were
fixed upon a stain only partly obliterated,
and it was there where his head had lain
after he received the shot.
A peculiar sense of sin inking ran through
Stratton as he saw himself again pissing
through the struggle and dragging the min
into the bath-closet, while once mure he
had to fight w<lli the feelings of dread of
detection, and recalled how he had argued
with himself, upon theneae-isir-y for hiding
away thc wretch whose existence had been
as a blight on Myra's young life, and who,
dead, was iho great bar to their future
happinees.
".*\nd," he muttered aloud with a bitter
sigh, "living���as great a barrier still."
"If he would but die," something seemed
to say ; "and free her."
But he shook his head directly,
"A vain hope," he aaid���-"a vain hope."
He shuddered and clenched his bauds,
closing r is eyes directly after, for a maddening, horrible feeling of temptation had
come over him. Tliey �� ere alone in that
solitary room���he with this wretch whose
existence in his sane moments was a curse ;
and who now, as he lay baok there feeble,
vacuous,exiBting only in body,not in mind,
was a mere blot upon the earth,less worthy
of the apace ho occupied thau tho vilest
animal claBsed as vermin, and which
man crushed out of his way without compunction, without a second thought. What
sin would it be to quenoh the flickering life
before him? He must give up all hope if
ever clasping Myra to his heart, as lio had
given it np before, and suffer as he had
suffered then ; but then she would he free.
There would never then bo any possibility
of her coming face to face with tliis horror.
Aud it would tie so easy ! One firm grasp
of his nervous fingers, uud ihe feeble beating of the miserable wretch's arteries
would cease,
And after ?
l-trcttisou would return aud find that his
preparations had been vain���that thc man
waa lying back there iu his chair���dead
from a fit���the precarious life had como to
an end, as might have been foretold after
such a seizure���such a stroke. And it
would be so easy���so easy.
Stratton opened hia eyes and stood gazing down at the vacant face with the lids
half-closed now, and remained there as it
fascinated, unable to drag himself away
till, with one vigorous wrench, he turned
and literally rushed into his chamber to
prepare for the journey.
He was absent about half an hour before
he returned to make a few more preparations there.
He went, about the room opening cabinet
and case to lind money aud other necossaries
for his journey,busying himself, and taking
care not to let hia eyes rest for a moment
on the figure sitting back in the chair and
uneasily moving from time to time.
" He is safe with me���safe with mp."
Stratton muttered as he went to and from
his bedroom. " What thoughts will ferae
themselves into a man's head at times 1"
The hours had glided by till it had
gtown quite dark, and still he wat busy
for the sake of occupying himaelf. But
at last he could see to do no more, and he
went softly to a drawer to get out matches
and light his lamp.
The drawB creaked as he pulled it out*
and deadened a sound behind him as of one
softly rising from a ohair, and a pieoe of
stone���a large fossil���grated as it was taken
from the mantelpiece; but, rapt in
thought, Stratton did not hear it as ha
opened the box, took out and struck a
match, whioh flashed, and threw a bluish,
ghastly light upon a hideous face, with
beside it an arm raised to strike.
The next minute there was a orash and
a heavy fall.
It was about half an hour later that
Brettison ascended the staircase, and as
be reached the landing there was a puffing
and panting behind him.
"It is you, then, Mr. Brettison," oried
Mrs. Brade joyfully ; "I thought it wai
you as you passed the lodge, and I am
��lad, air. We began to think you must be
ead and gono. Now da let me oome and
tidy up your room, sir, and made you a
oup of tea.
"No, no," said Brettison. "I am going
in here. Mr, Stratton and I are leaving
town."
"Mr. Stratton has gone, sir. Leastwise
not at home,"
"What 1"
" Mr. Guest was here a quaiter of an
hour ago, and said he'd been hero once
before.   He couldn't make no one hear."
Something bas happened then," said
Brottison to himself, and a thrill ot horror
ran through his frame.

LAKE CRUISERS.
A   Proportion   That   Ihe   United   Hint-**
Should Have a Navy on Ihe Lakes.
A despatch from Washington, D. C,
Bays :���An effort will be made at the next
session of Congress to secure an appropriation for three, and possibly fivo, light-
draught gunboats for the protection of the
lake cities. It is argued that the elaborate
system of coast defenoee which iB beiug
created by the ordinanoe branch of the
army for the cities on the sea coast, as well
as the increased number of harbour defenco
vessels now rapidly going into commission-
gives to these cities a protection which is
not enjoyed by those upon the lakes, It
has been claimed for years past that oar
treaty with Great Britain prevents us from
placing naval cruising veaaela ou the waters
dividing tho United Statea from Canada.
It ia asserted, ou the other hand, however,
that Great Britain has not rigidly respected
these treaty provisions, and that in the
event of war betweeu Eugland and lhe
United States, a number ot vessels are now
in Canadian waters that could be speedily
armed with rapid firing guns and which
would work great destruction among oar
shipping, as well ae to such important commercial centres as Buffalo, Cleveland, and
Detroit.
If Congress cau bo made lo believe that
the placing of a few speedy gunboats on the
lakes would not be a contravention of, our
treaty relations with Creat Britain, there
little doubt that au approptialion for
this purpose will be promptly made iu the
next House, It has lieen suggested that
those boats have a displacement of about
1,01)0 tons, aud that they be armed with
half-a-do/en ur more four-inch rapid-fire
guns. This would give them an offensive
quality fully equal to the demands that
might be made upon them, and they would
serve as lho nucleus of a small lake navy,
to which additions might be made trom the
more swift of the vessels now plying those
waters as freight and pasaenger boats.
Many of these latter could be converted
into acceptable cruisers by arming them
with light,rapid-firing guns, und this would
probably bo dono in the event of war.
Meanwhile, it ia believed that some steps
should be takeu for the building up of a
distinctive naval squadron on the lakes,
and tho initiative will not bo delayed
longer than next winter. If such an
appropriation be made the bill will doubt*
less provide that they ahall be constructed
on the lakes.
Burning: Thirty Seven Years.
Strenuous efforts are being made to check
thu fire in the No. 3 tunnel at Summit Hill,
Putin., where the miners struck the famous
burning mine which haB been burning continuously for the paat 37 yearB. The mino
is owned by the Leigh Coal aud Navigation
Company. Tho vein of ci-al here ia over 300
feet thick, with an almost perpendicular
pitch. This veiu is aaid to be the largest
In tho world. When tho fire broke through
lhe miners were driving through a small
vein in order lo get around the part
in which the fire waa located. Owiog to
the intense heat and tho fumes of sulphur
the miners were unable to proceed until a
wall waB buitt-oloBIDg off the gas and heat.
There is a large roservoir in tho vicinity,
ami a pipe lino bus beon constructed and
water will he forced iu through an air passage. The origin of the fire is a mystery,
but it is thought to have been caused by
minors neglecting to outon a liro thoy had
built while eating their dinner. Numerous
efforts have been made to cheek the file by
Mashing culm and other refuse into it and
ttUo by gas, but so far without success.
A Magnifying Show Window.
One of the most extraordinary devices
for attracting custom on record was that
of a fruiterer in a Midland town in Eugland. Inatead of the ordinury plate-glass,
a large number of rough magnifying glasses formed the window. Seen through one
of these panes, an orange looked as largo
as a pumpkin, and cherries as large as
upplcB. A great disadvantage attaching
to this novelty was the fact that at the
distance of u few yards from the window
it waa impossible to seo into the shop.
Everybody knows that you must hold a
magnifying glaas vory close to tho eyes to
see anything through it, Nevertheless,
for somo time, at all events, the enterprising proprietor did a roaring trade. AGRICULTURAL,
Raising Dairy Calves.
To be successful the farmers must have
good sows, and to have good cows they
must begin with good calves, writes a cor.
respondent. We select the calves produced
by the moat profitable cowa. Our herd,
consisting of 46 thoroughbred cowa, ia headed hy a full* blood bull. When a calf is
born that we wish to raise, wo allow it to
run with tbe mother one day only unless
the cow's udder is in bad oondition. In
that case we believe it ia best for
the calf to suck. After the firat day
teach it to drink, giving the milk from the
mother. Give about 8 lba, night and morning for a month. The nast season after the
first month we began giving 10 lbs. of skim
milk in the morning and about the same
amount of sweet milk at night. At this
age also begin to feed a little fine hay.
At about two months of age they are put
into winter quarters, where they are fed
skimn.ilk entirely with a good supply of
hay nnd grain. Begin with 8 or 10 lbs at
a feed ing, and gradually Increase the amount
until it reaches 15 lbs. Feed regularly and
heat the milk to 90 �� bofore giving it to
them. Alwaya treat them kindly. The
exaot amount and kind of grain feed will
be governed by circumstances largely aud
by tho capacity of the individual animal.
IMPROVED STALL fOR CALVES.
Our calves are given ground oata with a
sprinkling of old process oilmeal; probably
no two receive the same amount. In feeding gram be careful to not overfeed at first.
Begin with a light ration aud gradually iucrease it. Some farmers in my vicinity
give calves constant access to praiufeod
after they have become accustomed to it.
We stable our calves in a warm barn,
each one having a separate stall, two of
* hich are shown in the accompanying
illustration. Kach stall is 2-J ft high, 2 ft
wide and 4 ft long from manger to drop.
In front of the calf iaa manger for hay 2 ft
high, IJ ft long, and juat as wide as the
Rial), In one corner, a a, is a little box in
which to place grain feed. At tho back
end of each stall partition isa2\2-in timber
running from the ground to the ceiling, for
support.    At the front every 4 or 5 ft is a
and a little tubbing with a coarse rag will
remove tbe spots that did not soak otf.
Neat's-foot oil is in the long run the
cheapest oil we have ever found for oiling
leather ot any kind and especially harness,
as it is exposed to the action of dirt, sweat
and very often is out in the rain. If the
harness is not very dry a half gallon of oil
will be enough for an ordinary set of double
harness, though we have seen harness so
dry that a gallon would be none too much.
A nickel's worth of ivory black will give a
beautiful color and polish to the leather if
it is mixed with the oil before using. Be
sure though to get ivory black and not
lamp black as the latter rubs off badly.
Have the oil warm and as you take the
straps out of the water run them a few
times through the oil, wipe off with a rag
and hang up to dry* If not soft enough
repeat the operation.
Treat your harness in this way and it
looks like new and if it is oiled about three
times a year will outlast three or four Bets
that never receive any oil. It is an old
aayiug that " five oilings equal a new
hai ness."
CHINA FOR THE CHINESE.
The Empire Is Amply able te Develop tier
Own Industries.
Whatever may be the diplomatic set*
tlement of the Chinese dilemma one result
can scarcely fail to come about. The walls
in which the Chinese mind has been built
as in a tomb will be so far shattered that
light and air and growth will oome to the
resuscitated mummy, shrouded for so many
thousand years in cerements of tradition
and bigotry. Celestial conceit has been so
terribly flailed that even the literati will
accept the inevitable fact that their
civilization ia a decrepit anachronism. The
new "pou ato" ia clearly indicated by the
clear-sighted leadership of such forward
thinkers aa Viceroy Li, Marquis Tseng,
Chung Chi Tung and others who have been
struggling for twenty-five years to lift
Chins by the boot straps out of immobility,
It im e-J i just such a plough of slaughter
ami Humiliation to break through that
rigid crust into the subsoil. Li ceased to
be a bigot in Mono days when with the
assistance of Gil g lish mau Gordon he ex tin
guiahed' the flames of the Tai-Prng rebel
lion.    He has sine.; been  the main factor
But Li and his school establishe d certain
object lesBo-ia in the monuments he has
built. Two railways on the mainland, an.l
one on the Island of Formosa ; telegraph
lines radiating through 20,000square milea;
great government iron and steel works at
Hang-Chau ; arsenals, dockyards,corporate
companies, organized   on the  joint
stock
2x4 answering the same purpose. A strap . Pja" uud ��������������"��*.* ^ccessful, for the man-

up until they are yearlinzs.
The Future Horse.
The correct view of the future of the
horse interests is woll oxpres.ed by the
Horse World when it says that, lot the
prospects of tho future be what they will, j
tho f -rmer should always buy to sell, Kven I
tlery���all tliese things
ly called into being, They remained soli-
ta y facts, becauso four hundred millions
or men, including the so-called " literati"
class, scoffed at them and were wedded to
their ancient idols. It is understood now
that there has been a great revolution iu
the opinions of tho literati who are really
leaders of public opinion. Of course progress for u time wiil move slowly. But the
opening ot the Chinese mind to new
impressiuna will havo been accomplished.
How far China will be willing to giant
the capital ot" the west a share iu her regeneration is dubious. Whether she bor*
rows to pay her  war indemnity, or dives
if one's farm is well adapted to horses, and | jnto the stocking le^e uniUhimuey corners
if the farmer is situated io be able to eure
for them,  unless  he   is a good horseman
he should never attempt to make a specialty ot breeding horses.    Suppose a farmer
of her peasantry, as France did, the
empire s amply aide to develop her own
industries. She will need and can purchase
the directing genius of western teachers
and   engineers,    But   to  that  dangerous
is a natural horseman and his farm is favor- ��� complication, which involves foreigu owner
ably adapted to the business also, and  he ?.hIP.of har I6��� enterprises, it is not very
wishes to start on the horse business, whin,
kind of a horso is he to breed
peud altogether upon the future, If he is
far sighted enough to see what kiud will be
in demand by the time his horses are ready
for market; he will succeed. Thai tiie
people of this country will continue to use
hones there is little doubt.
At the present time there are ou many
farms horses for which there ia no market,
that the owner is very desirous to dispose
of, Wo find, however, that there are three
classes of horsea which are not fouud ou
these farms. They are the fine driver, the
saddler, and the good heavy draft. There
is but little doubt thore will never again be
a time when any other horse will be in
demand in our market, tlie days of the
street car horse are now over and will
never return, and the ouly placo for this
liorse is on the farm, where probably he is
worse than a nuisance.
The writer can sec no reason wh> the
three classes of horses ubov-*) named wili
not continue to bring good prices,and there
is but little danger of overstocking the
market. Other markets have been overstocked, but the time haB not been wheu
any man having the best of either of the
three classes named could not sell them at
almost hiB own price. The tiouhl
heen that thero have been vory few farmers
who hare had either of these classes, as It
is no small thing for any man,even a scientific horseman, to bo able to produce the
best of them.
The driver and saddler requires much
moro attention than the riraft-UH they must
be trained and prepared for market, it is
a great mistake for men to soil their young
driving horses without lirsi getting thom
iu proper shape. The driving horse should
be taught obedience and promptness- and
the suddle horse should he taught all the
saddle gaits before he is offered for sale.
But few are capable of training a saddle
horse, as this requires more skiil than it
does to prepare uny other class tor sale.
Oiling' the Harness.
Before tho busy season commences on the
farm is a good time to oil tho harness, and
if any seams are beginning to rip to repair
them, either with a few stitches or as we
commonly do with copper rivet?. First,
throughly wash the harness so ub to have
it free from sweat and dirt. We find the
easieBt way to accomplish this is to fake
the harness to pieces and soak it over night
in strong soap suds having the water as
warm as it is comfortable to hold the hnnd
in when the harneBa is first put in. It too
hot il will scald the leather. When taken
out in '.he morning most of the dirt is gone
likely that China will  ra-dly assent.    The
speculative man of the weat may look to s
It will  de-; golden future iu concessions and subven
tions through thegatea now beingunbarred.
But if intellectual stupidity, against which
the gods themselves even strive in vain, is
overthrown, it will not make any the less
vehement the feeling, "China for the
Chinese." Kven Viceroy Li, the moat
progressive man of his people, expresses it
with passionate earnestness. The moral
attitude uf the empire to the foreigner will
probably be even more obstinate than the
old mental stagnation, and for a long time
to come.
Queer Pets.
A young woman residing near Monroe,
La., in the river country has a pair of pet
wasps, which are a* interesting aa they are
unique in their way. Sho has trained them
to perform a great many wonderful tricks,
and it is indeed marvelous to what
degree of intelligence and agility her kindly
care and patient perseverance haa brought
them, Aa the young lady is au invilid
she manages to got a great deal of profitable
diversion from her queer little pets.
Among oiher things sho has taught them
to drink water from a thimble and to perform tha "skirt dance," as she calls
it, by fluttering thoir wirgs as they rest
in tiie palm ot her hand. They will sing
at ber bidding* miking a faint, almost inaudible cheep, and seem to bo passionately
f md of music. Tiie young lady is quite
a line iuiisiei-.il, nnd when she plays on
thopiino tbo wasps tike up their positions
on tho music rack and never budge until
tlie performance ib over.
The wasps would seen, to have quite a
good deal of vanity, and nothing delights
them more than to be allowed to walk
about aud inspect themselves on a littio
hand mirror, which is kept for their exclusive use. Strange to relate, thc wasps
have never been known to attempt to sling
anybody, although lhey have ireo access
to all pa* Is uf the hi use, and ore seldom
oonfinod, even at night,

HOW TO BUY A BICYCLE
Seme Timely AriTire .'or intending Kayer*.
Dnrlas the Coining Season.
The following "pointers" on how to buy
a wheel, given by a writer in a Chicago
paper, ia apropos at the present time :-���
The man who buys a new bicycle for use
thia aeason will have an extra heavy machine
if he purchases one weighing twenty-eight
pounds, while thirty-pound wheels will be
found listed in very few 1893 catalogues.
Twenty-five is the average weight for a
road wheel strictly up to date. The scorching element and club men will use machines
varying from twenty to twenty-two pounds
while some will go even still lower aud use
mounts that tip the scale at eighteen and a
half to niueteen and a half pounds. Racing
machines will vary from fifteen to seven
teen pounds. When one looks at these
figures and thinks of the enormous strain a
bicycle is put to it at first seems incredible
that such extremely light machines will
stand up. But they do stand up,nevertheless, and besides every yearly reduction in
weight has been looked upon with more or
less suspicion by conservative rider-). Kach
year these same riders buy new machines,
however, and find that their fears are
entirely without foundation. Six years ago
the ordinary or high wheel had apparently
about reached perfection, and the average
make scaled twenty-eight to thirty pounds
for road use. The first safeties were rareiy
furnished under fifty pounds, and while
the change was great the other advantages
of the dwarf machine overcame this objection. The wheel of 189-f- resembles that of
the earlier days ouly in goneral appearance,
Kvery ounce of superfluous weight has been
cut down year after year aud yet the
twenty-two pound machine now sold is
stronger and safer than the fifty-pound
article originally offered the votaries uf the
sport, so great has been the improvement
in the mechanical construction and design.
The frame is now universally made in e
diamond shape, which not only permits of
great reduction in weight but gives the
enormous strength necessary ; lighter yet
stronger tubing is used, and improved
mechanical methods permit doing away
with numerous small parts once considered
essential. One fair example is the saddle.
Tnis necessary article once weighed anywhere from five to eight pounds. It now
averages fifteen to twenty ounces. Pneumatic tires and wood rims take away all
the jar, and tho mass of springs which
formerly composed bo important a part ot
the saddle can readily ho dispensed with.
The pneumatic tire has of course been the
greatest factor in this evolution, for its use
reduced vibration to a minimum and con
sequently made light wheels possible.
For all thia it would be rash to say that
wa have reached finality in improved const ruction. The high wheel wus thought to
have reached that stage, but where is it
to-day ? The cushion tire was considered a
great improvement, but it now seems only
a question ofa few years when pneumatics
will be fitted to all vehicles. When Peter
Berlo used wood rims on a racing wheel he
built himaelf four years age he was looked
upon as foolhardy, but they are now used
everywhere. What the next thing will be
it is difficult to guess. Improvement is
the order of the day and five years hence
the lines on which the 1895 models are
built may be so entirely ohanged that the
present machine may be almost totally unrecognizable in the new pattern.
At the price of $100 for the very best
wheel obtainable and with second-hand
machines to be had at almost any price,
anybody can owu a wheel, and at this season a word of advice to intending purchasers is not out of place. First of all
buy of none but a reputable dealer if yon
are inexperienced and especially If you
intend starting with a second-hand ma*
chine, as so large a proportion of riders do.
Tiie established dealer who intends to
remain in business and transact his affairs
with a view to retaining his customers is a
good man to tie to. He will stand back of
hia goods whether new or second-hand,
and if anything goea wrong he will make it
good either free of cost or at a lower price
than it wonld otherwise be repaired for.
There are as many tricks in tho bicyole
business as in any other. It will be found
profitable to purchase a strictly high-grade
machine. It will laat longer, run easier,
f-ause less trouble than a cheap wheel, and
when the owner ia through with it will
sell for a h'gber price. Steer oiear of
auction goods and cut-price machines unless you have the guarantee of some reliable
party that such otters are strictly bona fide.
Except in rare cases of actual failure first
class machines do not find their way to
auction rooms new, nor are they sold at
cut prices. The manufacturer generally
takes the goods away from the agent rather
than to allow this to be done.
Bicycles are made for auction purposes
and out*price sales the samo as othe'r goods
are, and in appearance look to be the equal
of any to he found elsewhere, but black
enamel is cheap and it will cover up defective tubing and gas pipe as beautifully as
it will tho finest cold-drawn steel. The
beginner will find it unwise to purchase an
extremely light machine or ono with a very
high gear. The latter can be changed
readily enough afterward, and sixty-three
is sufficiently high. Twenty-five pounds is
light enough unless a man intends to sp nd
his time in speed riding, or unless ho considers that his rank as a wheelman i** graded
by the weight of his mount.
The Scolding- Word.
At lost, my baby s'eeps, and I
Soft wipe tbo tear glued lushes dry.
And kiss the rosy grief-splashed cheek,
And try tostilltheeobs that seek
To sink themselves in ircm'lons sighs;
I know thu sleep-sealed, baby eyes
Hold in them now no look of pain.
No quick surprise; yet I would fain
The heavy, heart-hurt sobs release.
That my dear babe might, sleep in peace.
Did we but si ay the Ecoldlng word
Till baby sleeps, 'twould ne er be heari.
Seat of the Thunder God.
"Trembling .Mountain," a mussivo pile
of peculiarly arranged rocks, lying on Rogue
River, almoat directly nortli of Mon
treal, was known to the Indians by a
combination of words signifying *��� Beat of
the thunder god." According to their
traditions, the thunder god formerly used
a broad and doep indentation on its summit
as a sent, and that therein he would ait for
three days in spring, seven in summer, fivo
in autumn and two in winter. They also
believed that during the lime he waa preaent great chasms would open in the side of
the mountain,from whicli fire would stroam
for hours without ceasing. Nothing is
known concerning tho early history of the
mountain, but itis thought that the legend
refers to obi-rime volcanic action,an opinion
strengthened by ita geographical name of
"Trembling Mountain*"
Serving: Meals.
That which adda or detracts from the
general well-being and good nature of the
family more than any other thiug is the
manner in whioh the food is cooked and
served. Some wise person has said : "The
way to a man's heart lies through his stomach." The saying is not iar wrong. If the
meals be on time, the food well cooked and
nicely served, and the table scrupulously
neat, in nine cases out of ten the man will
be healthy, good-natured, and contented.
This may also be said of the rest of the
family. There are few men who will come
in from hard work expecting te find dinner
ready, and have to wait for it, with tut more
or less grumbling. It does not increase
their amiability if the me*), besides being
tardy, is badly cooked, and placed haphazard on a table covered with a soiled cloth,
The whole family will feel more self*
respecting, more "like somebody," it each
meal is neatly served. The majority of
people would rather have a few dishes
���roperly cooked and served than to sit
down to a number poorly cocked and
served.
A great many housewives attach proper
importance to this branch of their work.
It takes time and caro to cook palatably
and well, but they recognize tbe fact it is
time well spent for the happiness aud welfare of their families.
But aome who are less wise do not think
very much about the matter. Perhaps
they believe tbat in some providential
manner the meat will get itself. At any
rate, little thought ia given to preparation
for the meal until after the time it should
have been planned and half-cooked. Then
a wild rush is made for the kitehen, A
hasty survey ie made of the contents of the
pantry. Almost anything that comes firat
is seized and tossed together, and when
the meal at last is ready, oiguB of haste are
everywhere apparent. The bill of fare is
apt to be rather short. The food is partly
cooked, or perhaps burned, and lastly, but
by no means least, the table is untidy.
Small wonder tho family, especially the
male portion, feel aggrieved. Nor does this
feeling pass away at once. A dull feeling
of discontent pervades the atmosphere of
the home, and renders it anything but the
spot of cheery brightness it should be. We
have a firm belief that theae unfaithful
housekeepers send more people to the nether regions than any other class of
supposed righteous and harmless beings.
Dress Attractively.
There is nothing whioh will so quickly
make a man hasten home at night as to
know that a sweet, attractively-dressed
wife ie awaiting bim. So the desire of
every wife ought to be to possess herself of
a pretty houae gown at once. For this
purpose red is to be preferred if it suits the
complexion. It is bright, warm looking,
and usually becoming.
The material may be Henrietta, challie,
or even calico, as very pretty gowns have
been made from it. Make the skirt full
and plain, Reserve the trimming for the
waist, Make the waist tight-fitting, seamless in the back, with small pleats at the
belt in the centre, AIbo, make small pleats
on each side of the centre in front*. Have
a high stock collar of silk with big wings
or rosettes on the sides. Take a piece of
black, white or oream laoe and sew on V
shaped over the front and back iu yoke
eflect. Have large, pretty sleeves a draped
top may be used if preferred. Make the
lower part tight-fitting from the elbow to
the wrist. Put on a wide, smooth fitting
cuff of the lace, and the sleeve i.�� finished.
If it is wished to turn the sleeves back, an
opeuiug can be loft on the inside seam.
Fasten with hooka and eyes. Great care
must be taken with the sleeves while sewing them in, If this jb not done well, the
eflect. of the sleeve will be spoiled, The
BeamB should be hemmed on to the waist
lining to make thc sleeve fit well.
This makes a very pretty dress and one
comparatively inexpensive. It is well if
there be some one at home capable of
making it, for it is a well-known fact that
the making of a dress usually costs more
than tlie material of which it is made.

QUARRYING BY FIRE.
Ab
Aacl-t-nt  Method  New Hied Saeeess-
fally In India*
At Bangalore, in Southern India, the
quarrying of granite slabs by means of
wood fire haa been brought to suoh perfection that an account of the method ia given
aa follows : The rock forma solid masses
uninterrupted by cracks for several hundreds of feet, and when quarried over an
area is treated as follows : A narrow Une
of wood fire, perhaps 7 feet long, is gradually elongated, and at the same time moved
forward over the tolerably even surface of
solid rook. The line of fire is produced by
dry logs of light wood, whioh have been
left burning in their position until strokes
with a hammer indicate that the rock in
front of the fire has become detached from
the main mass underneath.
The burning wood is then pushed forward
a few inches, and left until the hammer
again indicates tbat the slit has extended.
Thus the fire ia moved on, and at the same
time tbe length of the line of fire is increased and made to be convex on the side
of the fresh rook, tbe maximum length of
the arc amounting to about 25 feet. It is
only on this advancing line of fire that any
heating takes place, the portion which has
been traversed being left to itself. This
latter portion is covered with the ashes left
by tbe wood, and with thin splinters which
have been burst off. These splinters are
only about one eighth of an inch in thickness, and a few inches across. They are
quite independent of the general splitting
of the rock, whioh is all the time going on
at a depth of about five iuches from the
surface. The burning lasts eight hours,
and the line of fire advances at the average
rate of nearly six feet an hour. The area
actually passed over by the line of fire is
460 square feet, but as the crack extends
about three feet on either side beyond the
fire, the area of tbe entire slab which is
set free measures about 740 feet. All this
is done with, maybe, about 1,500 pounds of
wood.
Beneficent Beards.
The beard is generally regarded as mere.
ly an ornamental object, except by a lew,
who look on it as a time-saving convenience.
Now, however, it appears that the beard
is not only ornamental, but decidedly useful as those nho do not shave are muoh
less subjected to faoial troubles than those
who submit to the razor.
The reason for this new theory is a very
simple one. In the first plaoe, the beard is
a great safeguard to all those who suffer
from sore or weak throats; it is a protection
against neuralgia, and, lastly, it Is now
claimed to be of great assistance in warding off toothache.
Dr. Chabbert, a celebrated French physician has come to the conclusion that the
reason why there are so many more cases
of facial paralysis among women than with
men is because the former have no natural
protection to their fair faces.
It is true that men are much more exposed to cold frost and biting winds, which
bring about the affection, than are womeo,
but in the few cases which have come under
Dr. Chabbert's notice where men have suffered, tbe patients have almost invariably
been clean-shaven,
To aome men it must be a relief to find
that they still have some ancient privileges
as yet unclaimed by the "new woman,"
although there is a case on record where
one of these eccentric ladies even went ao
far aa to grow a bushy beard four and one
half feet in length. She was presented as a
prisoner to the Czar in 1724, having beon
captured from the army of Charles XII.
For London Children.
The county council of Loudon haa been
kind to the ohildren. Thousands of poor
little creatures from slums and overcrowded
dwellings are better in health for its considerate action. The parks are the great
pluygrounda of the London child, ita only
change from the crowded home and the
dirty street. Here it has its only taste of
a rural life���the pleasures of trees and
flowers and birds, The parks, however,are
for the whole people, and unless Bomo
special means are taken to attend '.o tbe
wants of the children they uro likely to be
elbowed out by other.-*. So the parka committee established children's gymnasiums
in Victoria, Batlersea, FiiiBbury aud Brock-
well parks ami made arrangements at other
parks where only one gymnasium exists that
it shall beset apart exclusively for children
at certain hours. Special attention is paid
to physical exercises for girls, and in every
caso a woman attcmii'iit is in charge of ihe
chi dren's gymnasium. The most notable
innovation , however, has beeu the introduction of aand pits in Victoria Park,which
are a great source of amusement to many
children who have never had an opportunity of visiting tha seaside. Anyone who
knows children knows that the amusement
littio ones can obtain playing in the sand is
incalculable.

THE   DRAMATIC   NIGHT.
The presentation of Rose Garland, or
the Fanner's Daughter, al I'ikei's hull
last Wednesday night was a very enjoy
able affair, Joe Garland, the old farmer
was faithfully represented by J. W. Jenkins whose acting produced roars of
laughter, Rose Garland found a sympathetic representative in Mrs. 0.1', Stephens who acted ihe uneducated farmer's
daughter, llien ihc fond young bride and
afterward the injured, tolerated wife, and
finally lhe educated and polished woman
very close to nature. Voung Alex'.
Lindsay did well as the professor. One
of the most important parts was that of
Rose' lover. Unfortunately this was taken by Mr. H. Wilkinson but a short
time before ihe performance, acting as a
substitute for nnolher w ho was absent ;us a
result he wan not certain of himself and
was too monotonous in his voice and
manner. However, with the additional
time for practice which he will now have,
there will doubtless be marked improvement, All the others performed lheir
parts acceptably, Mrs. J. W. Jenkins
carrying through her part must admirably.
At one point owing to the supposition
that all were ready, the bell rang, the cur
tain arose, and Miss Abr.ans and another
stepped upon lhe platform, and saying a
few words turned to the space thai should
have been filled by Mr. Bruce, but thai

A OBNKRAL I RAOTlTIOKKB.
Drumtr-chty waa iicouptomed to break
evory law of health, except w holesome
food an J fresh air, ami yet Lad reduced tlie
Psalmist's farthest limit to un avenge life-
rat��. Our men made no difference in their
clothes fcr summer or winter, Dmmsheugb
and ono or two ofthe larger farmers con-
deal-ending to a topcoat on Sabbath, as o
penalty of their position, and without te*
gard to temperature. They wore their
blacks at a funeral, refusing to cover them
with anything, out of respect to the k--
ceased, and standing longest iu tho kirk-
yard when the north wind waa blowing
across a hundred miles of auow. If the
rain was pouring at the junction, then
Drumtoehty Btood two minutes longer
through sheer native dournees till ench
man had a cascade from the tail of his
coat, and bazardid the' suggest ien, half*
way to Kildrummio, that it had been "a
bit scrowie ;'' a "acrowie" being aa far
short of a "shoor" as a ' shoot*'1 fell below
"weet."
Thia sustained defiance of the elements
provoked occasional judgments in the shape
of a "boast" (cough), and the bead of the
house wua then exhorted by bin women folk
to "change his feet" if ho had happened to
walk through a ' -irn on bis way home, ami
was pestered generally with sanitary precautions. It is right to add that the glide*
man treated sueh advice with contempt,
regarding it aa suitable for the effeminacy
of towns, but not seriously intended for
.Drumtoehty. Saudy Stewart "napped'
stones on the road in his shirt sleeves, wet
or fair, summer and winter, till be waa
persuaded to retire from active duty a'-
eighty-five, and he spent ten years more tn
legretting his hastiness and criticising his
successor. The ordinary course of life,
with fine air aud contented minds, wus to
do a full share of work till seventy, and
then to look after "orra" (odd) jabs well
into the eightieB, and to "aiip awa'1 within
night of uinety. Persons above ninety were
understood to be acquitting themselves
with credit, and assumed airs of authority,
brushing aside the opinions of seventy as
I'll mature, and confirming their conclusions
with illustrations drawn from the end of
laat century.
When Hillocks' brother so far forgot
himself aB to "slip awa" at sixty, that
worthy man was acand ilized, nnd offered
labored explanations at the " beerial."
" It's an awfu' buaineaa ony wy ye lock
at it, an' a fair trial tae us a'. A' never
heat a tell o' sic a thing in cor family afore,
an' it's no easy aceoontin' for't.
"The gudewife was say in' he wes never
the same sin aweetnlcht he lost himael
on the muir and slept below a bush ; bui,
that's neither here nor there, A'm think-
iu' he Bappit his constitution lhae twa
years he waa grieve (steward) aboot England. That ves thirty years syne, but
ye're never the same aifter thae foreign
climates.1'
Drumtoehty listened patiently to Hillocks' apologia, but was not satisfied.
"It's clean havers aboot the muir. Losh
keep's (Lord keep us), we've a sleepit oot
and never beeu a hair the waur.
"A' admit that England micht hae dune
the job; it's no cannie stravagin' (strolling)
yon wy frae place tae place, but Drums
never complained tae me as if he hed been
nippit in the Sooth."
The parish had, in fact, lost confidence
in Drums after his wayward experiment
with a potato-digging machine, which
turned out. a lamentable failure, and his pre*
mature departure confitmed our vague
impression of his character.
" He's awa noo," Drumsheugh summed
up, alter opinion had time to iorm ; " an'
there were waur fouk than Drums, but
there's nae doot he wes a wee fliohty "
When illness had the audaoity to attack
n Drumtoehty mau, it was described aa a
"whl'p," and was treated by the men with
a tine negligence. Hillocks was sitting in
the post office one afternoon when T looked
in for my letters, and the right side of his
faeo was blitzing red. Hia subject of discourse was the prospects of the turnip
" breer," but he casually explained tbat he
was waiting for medical advice.
" The gudewife is keepin' up a ding*
dongf/ao mornin'till nieht aboo** ma face
and a'm fair deaved (deafened), so a'm
watohiu1 for MacLure tae get a bottle as he
comes wast (west-; yon's him noo."
The doctor made his diagnosis from
horseback on sight, and stated the result
with that admirable clearness which endeared him to Dt'umtoohty.
" Confoouud ye, Hillock?, what are ye
ploiterln' ubout here for in tho weet wi a
face like a boiled beet? Iljv ye uo ken
that ye've a titch o' the rose (erysipelas),
and ooht tae be in the boose? (.'ae hame
wi' ye afore a' leave the bit, and sent! a
haflin (half-grown ; a child) for some medicine. Ye don nerd idiot,, are ye-ettlin
(Intending) tae follow Drums afore yir
Mme?" And the medical attendant of
Drtimfcoohty continued his invective till
Hillocks Btarted, and atill pursued his
reheating figure with medical directions of
a simple and practical character.
"A'm watohln', an' petty ye if ye pit aff
time. Keep yir bed the mornin', and
dinna show yir face in the fields till a' see
ye. A'll gie ye a cry on Monday���aie an
auid fule���but there's no ane o' them tae
mind auither In the hale pairish,"
Hillocks' wife informed the kirkyaird
that thc doctor "pied the gudeman an
awfu' olearin',' and thai Hillocks "wes
keipin* tjie boose," which meant that the
patient, hud tea breakfast, ami at. that time
was wandering about, the farm buildings in
au easy undress with his head in a plaid.
It was impossible for a doctor to earn
even the most modest competence from a
peoplo of so *li scandalous health, and so
MhcLuro   had annexed  neighboring   par
ishes. Hi* house���Aittte more than a cot-
taj-e���stood oa the road-side among the
pities towards the h**ad of our GUa, and
from this ���*'���.�� of operation! he dominated
the -iriM glen that, broke the wall of the
QrampUus above Drumtoehty���where the
snowdrifts were twelve feet deep in winter,
and the only way of passage at times wu
the channel of the river���and the moorlaud
district westwards till he cime to the Dun-
leith sphere of influence, where there were
four dootors and a hydropathic Drum*
icchty in its length, whish waa eight miles,
and its breadth, which was four, lay in his
hand; besides a glen 1 obind, unknown to
the world, which iu the night time hevisited
at thc risk of life, for tlie way thereto was
across the big moor with ite peat holes and
treacherous bogs. And he held the land
eastwards toward the Muirtown ao far as
Geordie. The Drumtoehty post travelled
every day, and could carry word that the
dector was wantod. He did his beet for
the need of every man, woman, and child
in this wild, strangling district, year in,
year out, in the snow and in the heat, in
.he dark and in the light, without rest, and
without holiday for forty years.
Oue home could not do the work of this
111-411, but we liked best to see him on his
old white mare, who died the week after
her master, and the passing of the two did
our beans good. It was not that he rode
beautifully, for bo broke every canon of
art, flying with his arms, stooping till he
seemed to be speaking into Jess's ears, and
rising In the noddle beyond all necessity.
But he could ride faster, stay longer iu the
n.iddie, and had a firmer grip with his
knees, than any one I ever met, and it was
all for mercy's sake. When the reapers in
harveat time aaw �� figure whirling past in
a c'oud of duat.or thc family at the foot of
(tlen Urtudi, gathered round the fire on a
winter's night., heard, the rattle of a horse's
hoofs ou the road, or the shepherds, out
a*tfr tho sheep, traced a black Bpeck moving across the snow to the upper glen, they
knew it was the dootor,and, without being
conscious of it, wished him pod speed.
Before aud behind his saddle V* re
ntrapped the instruments and medicines
tlie doctor might want, for he never know
what was before Inn.. There were no
specialists in Drimuochty, so this man had
to (Km vv.\ ; i.iiii- a*-, best he could, and as
quickly. He w**s cheat doctor and doctor
for every other organ as well ; he was accoucheur and surgeon ; he waa oculist and
aurist ; he was dentist aud chloroformist,
besides being chemist and druggist. It
���van often told how he was far up Glen
Urtac-h when the feeders of the threshing
mill caught young Burnbrae, and 'now he
only stopped to change horses'at his house,
and gtiHoped all tiie way to Burnbrae, and
Hung himself off his horse aud amputated
the arm, and saved the U;'s life.
"You wnd hae thocht that every meenut
was an hour,'' said Jamie Soutar, who had
been at the threshing, " an' a'll never forget tlie puir lad lying aa white as deith ou
the floor o' tho lof', wi' his bead on a sheaf,
an' Burnbrae haudin' tho bandage ticht an'
prayii*' a' th-: whilo, and tbe mither greet-
in' in the corner.
" ' Will he never come V she criea, an'a'
heard the suond o' the horse's feet on the
road a miie awa in the frosty air.
" 'The Lord be praised !' said Burnbrae,
and ���-.' alippit doon the judder as the dootor
came skelpin' intae the close, the foam
fleeln' frae his horse's mooth.
" 'What' is he?' wes a* that passed his lips
an'in five meenuis he hed him on the feed in*
board, and wes ta his wark���sic wark,
neeburs���but he did it weel, An' ae thing
a' thocht raei ihochtfu'o' him: he first sent
aff the l-iddle'ri mither tae get a bod ready.
" 'Noo that's feeniahed, and his constitution 'ill dae thc rest,' and he carried the
lad dcon t he ladder iu his airms like a bairn
uud laid him in his bed, and waits aside
him till he wes sleepin', und then says he :
'Burnbrae, yir a gey lad never tae say
"Collie, will ye lick ?" for a hevna tasted
meat for sax teen hoors.'
"It was michty tae aee him come intae
the yaird that day, neeburs ; the verralook
o* him wcb victory."
Jamie's cynicism slipped offin the enthusiasm of this reminiscence,and he expressed
the feeling of Drumtoehty. No one sent
for MacLure save in great straits, and the
sight of him put courage in sinking heart*?.
But this was not by the grace of his
appearance, or the advantage of a good
bedside mannar. A tail, gaunt, loosely
made man, without an ounce of superfluous
tk-flh on his body, his face burned a dark
brick color by constant exposure to the
weather, red hair and beard turning grey,
honest blue eyes that looked you ever
in the face, huge hands with wrist boneB
like the shank of a ham, and a voice that
hurled his salutations across two fields, he
suggested the moor rather than the drawing-room. But what a olever baud it was
in an operation, ns delicate as a woman's
and what a kindly voice it was in the
bumble room where the shepherd's wife
was weeping by her man's bedside. He
was "ill pitten th eg! ther " to begin will:,
but many of his physical defects were the
penalties of hia work, and endeared him to
the Glen. That ugly scar that cut into his
right eyebrow, and gave him such a sinister
expression, was aot nne ii'giit Jess slipped
on tiie ice and laid him Insensible eight
miles from home. His limp marked the
big Bnowstorm in the fifties, when his horse
missed thc road in Glen Urtach, and they
rolled together in a drift, MacLure ea-
capetl **.*.ith a broken leg and thc fracture
of three ribs, but he never walked like
other men uyiin. He could not swing
himself into the saddle without making two
attempts ond holding Jess'Binano. Neither
can you "warotle" through thu peat bogs
and snowdrifts for forty winters without a
touch of rheumatism* But they were honorable scars, and for such risks of life men
gel the Victoria (Jioas in other fields.
j Mao Lute got nothing bnt tbe secret affection of the Glen, which knew that none
had ever done one-tenth as much for it as
this ungainly, twisted, battered figure, and
I have seen a Drumtoehty face soften at
the sight of MacLure limping to his horse,
Mr. Hopps earned the ill-will of the
Glen forever by criticising the doctor's
dress, but indeed it would have filled
any townsman with amazement. Blaok
be wore onco a year, on Sacrament Sun*
j day, and, if possible, at a funeral ;
j topcoat or water-proef never. His jacket
and waistcoat were rough homespun
of Glen Urtach wool, which threw
olf thc wet liko a duck's back and
below he waa clad in shepherd's tartan
trousers, which disappeared into unpolished
riding boots. His shirt was grey flannel,
and he was uncertain about a collar, but
certain as to a tie which he never  had, his
beard doing instead, and hie hat- wan soft
felt of four colors aod seven different
shape*. His poiat of distinct ion in drew
was the trousers, and they were the subject
of une-adiDg speculation.
" Some threcp (declare) that he's worn
thaeeendeutical pair the last twenty year,
an' a' mind masel (myself) his get tin' a
tear ahint, when he was crossiu' oor paliu',
and the mend's stilt veesible.
"Ith rs declare 'at he's get a wab o'
elaith, and hes a new pair made in Mnirtown aince in the twa year maybe, and
keeps them in the garden till the new look
wears aft.
" For ma ain pairt," Soutar used to declare, "a* canoa mak up my mind, but
there's ae thiugsure, Lhe Glen wud uot like
;ae see him without them ��� it wud bo a
shock to confidence. There's no muckle
o' the check left, but ye can aye tell it, and
when ye Bee thae breeks comin' in ye ken
that if human pooer can save yir bairn's life
it 'ill be dune."
The confidence of the Glen-and tributary atates���waa unbounded, and rested
partly on long experience ot the doctor's
resources, aud partly on his hereditary
connection.
1 His father waa hero afore him," Mrs.
Maofadyen used to explain ; "atween them
they've hed the countryside for weel on
tae a century ; if MacLure disna understand
oor constitution, wha dis, a wud like tae
ask ?"
For Drumtoehty had its own constitution
and a special throat disease, as became a
parish which was quite self-contained between the woods and the hills, and not dependent on the lowlands either for its diseases or its t'octors.
"He's a skiliy man, Doctor MacLure,"
continued iny friend Mra. Maofadyen,
whose judgment ou sermons or any hing
else waa seldom at fault ; "in' a kind-
hearted, though o' coorse he hes his faults
like us a', an' he disna tribble the Kirk
often.
"He aye can tell what's wraug wi' a body
a*,' maistly he can put, ye rleht, an* there
nae new-fangled wys wi' him : a blister for
the ootsidean' Epsom salts for the inaide
dis his wark, an' they say there's no an herb
on the hills he disna kcu.
"If we're cao dee, we're tae dee t an' if
we're tae live, we're tae live," concluded
Elspeth.with sound Calvinistio logic ; "but
a'll say this for thc doctor, that whether
yir tae live or dee, he can aye keep up a
shairp moisture on the skin.
"But he's no verra oeevil gin ye bring
him when there's naethin' wrang," and
Mrs. Macfadyen'e face reflected another of
Mr. Hopps' misadventures of which Hii*-
locka held the copyright.
"Hopps1 laddie ate grosarts (gooseberries) till they hed to sit up a' nicht wi' him,
aud naethin' wud do but they maun hae
the dootor, an* he writes 'immediately' on
a Blip o'paper,
"Weel, MacLure had been awa a'nioh
wi' a shepherd's wife Duuleith wy, and he
cornea here without drawin' bridle, mud
up tae the een.
'"What's a dae here, Hillocks!' he
cries ; 'it's no an accident, is't ?' and
when bo got aff his horse he cud hardly
stand wi' stillness and tire.
"'It's nane o' us, doctor ; it's Hopps'
laddie ; he's been eatin' ower mony berries.'
"If he didna turn on me like a tiger.
" 'Div ye mean tae say '
" 'Weesht, weesht,' an' I tried tae quiet
him, for Hopps wes comin' oot.
"'Well, doctor,' begins he, as brisk as
a magpie, 'you're here at last; there's no
hurry with you Scotchmen, My boy haB
been sick all night, and I've never had one
wink of aleep. You might bave come a
little quicker that's all I've got to say.'
" 'We've mair tae dae in Drumtoehty
than attend tae every bairn that hes a sair
stomach,' and a' saw MacLure wes roosed.
*' 'I'm astonished to hear you speak.
Our doctor at home always says to Mrs.
'Opps, ' Look on me as a family friend,
Mra. 'Opps, aud send for me though it be
be only a headache,'"
'"He'd be mair sparin' o' his offers if he had
four an' twenty mile tae look aifter. There's
naei hing wrang wi' yir laddie but greed.
Gie him a gude doae o' oastor oil and stop
his meat for a day, an' he 'ill be a' richt tbe
morn.'
" 'He'll not tako castor oil, doctor. We
have given up those barbarous medioines.'
"'Whatna kind o' medicines bae ye noo
in the Sooth ?"
" 'Well, you see, Dr. MacLure, we're
hoimeoputhists, and I've my little chest
here," and oot Hopps comes wi1 his boxy.
" 'Let's see't,' an' MacLure sits doou
and tai's oot the bit bottles, and he reads
the names wi a lauoh every time.
" 'Belladonna; did ye ever hear the like?
Aconite; it cowes a. Nux Vomica. What
next ? Weel, ma tnanuie,1 he says tae
HoppB, 'it's a tine ploy, and ye'ill better
gang on wi' the Nux till it's dune, and gie
him ony ither o' the sweeties he fancies.
"'Noo, Hillocks, a'maun be aff tae see

" 'Fee; a'm DO wan tin' yir fees, man ; wo'
a' that boxy ye dinna need a doctor ; na,
na, gin yir siller tae some puir body,
Miiisier Hopps/ an' ho was doou the road
us hard as he oud lick.
His fees wore pretty much what the folk
oh OH to give him, and he collected them
once a year at Kildriimmie fair.
"Weel, doctor, what am a' awiu' ye for
tho wife and bairn? Yo 'ill need three
notes for that nicht yo stayed iu tho hooae
an' a' the vcesits,"
"Havers," MacLure would answer,
"prices are low, a'm hearing i gie's thirty
shillings,"
"No, a'll no, or the wife 'ill tako ma
ears all," and it was settled for two pounds.
Lord Kilspiudio gavo him a freo house
and 9elds, and one way or othor, Drums-
hough told ino, tho doctor might get in
about ono hundred nnd fifty pounds a >ear,
out of which ho had to pay hia old housekeeper's wages und a boy's, and keep two
horsea, beaides the cost of instrumonts and
books, which ho bought through a friend in
Edinburgh with much judgment.
There was only ono man who ever complained of the doctor's charges, and that
waa thc new farmer of Milton, who was ao
good that he was abovo both churches,
and held a meeting in hia barn. (It was
Milton the Glen supposed at first to be a
Mormon, but I can't go into that now.;
He offered MacLure a pound less than he
aaked, and two traots, whereupon MacLure expressed his opinion of Milton, both
from a theological and social standpoint,
with such vigour and frankness that an
attentive audience of Drumtoehty men
could hardly contain themselvea.
Jamie Soutar was selling his pig at tho
time, and missed tha meeting, but he
hastened to condole with Milton, who wan
complaining everywhere of the doctor's
language.
"Ye did richt tae resist him; it 'ill maybe ruose tho Gl-90 tae mak a stand ; he
fair handa them in bondage.
" Thirty shillings for twal veesits, and

BERLIN'S FIKE   DEPARTMENT
Aliiio*.- a llilti irr OrganlzHlInu, Itie Mkm-
bers Having If.-ilty UrlllH.
The Berlin lire department is the oldest
professional or pan ration ofthe kind on the
continent, and, without a doubt, also the
most tfllcienfc. It is organised on military
lines,aiil tlie firemen as well as their ofliccrs
have their regular daily drills. The progress
within the last few years has been enormous
aud many novel appliances and machines,
electric apparatus and other improvements
have been introduced.
The "scaphander" ie a suit of asbestos
and rubber, with a helmet of rubber fitting
hermetically upon the suit. A plate of
glass, specially prepared to stand great
heat without cracking, is embedded in the
front ot lhe helmet and allows tho wearer
to ste plainly. With this suit a fireman
oan dash into fierce fire in spite of smoke,
heat and flame. Air is supplied to the fireman aa in a diver's helmet.
Several men of each station are supplied
with amoke helmets, which protect against
being overcome by smoke, and enable firemen to seurch all rooms in a burning house
for people that are blinded or overcome
They also receive their aupply of air from
without.
In the way of life-saving apparatus no fire
department is so complete as that of Berlin, In special carts they carry not only
tools, ropes, appliances for climbing, chemical extinguishers, rubber cloths for jumping into, etc., but all things necessary for
the first surgical help. Among other contents of the tool cart time is a " life-saving
sack," which, for simplicity, efficiency a-ad
lightning speed of operation, outranks all
other temporary or stable fire escapes. A
fireman ascending an upper story from the
outside by means of short laddeis reaching
to the window sill of the next floor above
finds a fainted form on the floor. The next
minute he has unhooked the strong hempen
sack he has slung across his body and over
his shoulder. A rope ie thrown down by
him after being run throug h one of the
rungs of the ladder, and within one rniunte
after he entered the room through the
window the human form is gliding through
space and into tne arms ofa brawny fireman
receiving the frightened sufferer. Four
persons have been saved with two Backs on
one line inside of three minutes. All sig*
nals ate r*iveo with cornets, each company
using a different pitch. The firemen get so
used to tho signals of their company that
they can instantly reoognixe a signal not
given by their own bugler.

No medioine that ii not of more than
ordinary merit suffer, from imitations or
substitute.. The faot that an imitation is
offered i. one of the strongest proof, of the
excellent qualities of the genuitio artiole.
The Dr. William. Medioine Co. is continually trying to impress upon th. publio tho
faot that Dr. William.' Pink Pills are only
sold in securely soaled boxes, the wrapper
around which la printed in red ink and
bean the registered trado mark " Dr. Williams' Pink Pill, for Pale People." Notwithstanding this constant waning there
are uusorupnlous dealer, here and there
who defraud the publio by selling an imitation pill (also oolored pink) either by the
dozen, hundred or by the ounce, alleging
that they are " jmt as good," or " just the
nim." as th. genuine Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. This is a falsehood and the unscrupulous dealer who offers tbe imitation
knows it, but is more concerned for the
extra profit h. makes on the imitation than
for the health of his unfortunate victim.
Will the public, in their own interest,
bear in mind the following facts, ���Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills are never sold by ihc
do-on, hundred, or ounce. If any dealer
offers you a pill in this form (no matter
whether oolored pink or not) h. is trying to
cheat you and should lie avoided.
Th. formula of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
is a seorei and is known only to the company. Therefore if some dealer telta you a
.ubstltut. is " just the sam. " or ** just as
good" he is simply trying to deceive you
liecaus. there is a larger profit for him in
selling the imitation.
When yon ask for Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills ss. that th. toad, mark ia on the
wrapper of every package, and do not be
persuaded to take anything else, no matter
Uw plausible s story the dealer may tell. ���
Imitations in medicine are always cheap,
always worthless and often dangerous, and
people who have a ear. for their health will
always refuse them.
Dr. William.' Pink Pill, cun when other
medicines fail. That's why th.y are
imitated, and that is why you should insist
on getting th. genuine. Used as a spring
medioine Dr. Williams' Pink Pill, surpass
all other medioines. If feeling "out of
tort." give them a trial.

PASSING OF FOUQUIER.
Mr. L. \V. Fouqulor is rt'inut 40 years
of age, more or less. He is a man that
it wouldn't clo to be loo exact about. Ile
has been in Union for a year or so - is
lively, intelligent, obliging to his friends
prodigal of his time and speech in public
matters, and as to cash,- wc., he seldom
has any of his own, and under the circumstances has been as generous of it as
could reasonably be expected. If lie is
a money getter it is clear lhat he has the
virtue of being a money-keeper also,
and if most gentlemen with
whom he has had dealings found tliMii-
selves giving him credit or making I i 11
loans, it resulted partly from tlie.r 1 wu
weakness, as well as his absorbent qu ,1-
ities. He couldn't help his nature any
more than his friends, of whom he hail
many, could their's. Let us be just: he
was a good collector; he had good si cial

good article���whatever it was; iiked a
line team, and generally was a "hail fel
lew well met". Such a person naturally
can't remain forever in one place, and
when he docs change Ins location,
should not be expected In make a confident of everybody. -Neither did Mr.
Fauquier, Ile returned last Wednesday
from a three weeks trip, collected w hat
he could (as agent for other people;) arose
early, took all his belongings from his
room which he had occupied for some
time, boarded the 6 o'clock train for the
wharf, waived an adieu lo the town and
- -he was gone. In an hour or tuo ihe
circumstances of his leading became
generally known. There was a void
which every one instantly felt. Ho had
filled in church, social and public mailers
too large a rpace not to be missed. The
number*of people who wanted to see
him all at once was very noticeable.

were angry. .Somehow lhey seemed 10
think lhat Fauquier had gotten something of which they would be lhe mosl

crowd stood Mr. C, li. Rabson. I lot
tears were pouring down up in his starch-

his agonized spirit. He sought relief ai
a Magistrate's and there swore out .1
warrant charging the retreating Farquier
wilh having in his pockets, or with having passed through a hole in ihem, several hundred dollars which of right ought
to be in his trousers. The lightening

the victim ol adverse circumstances, and
those who cannot be counted as his friends

case full justice should be done. For our
selves, ive trust he may prove he has not
