UNION SCHOOL CONCERT
The entertainment given by t*ic pupils
ofthe Union school on Wednesday eve,
June 27th was of too meritorious a character to bo ahowed to pass Without special notice, Political matters had pre*
ceedence of everything t-*Si: while they
lasted, and hence the delay in publishing
tins notice.
Evidently a good deal of painstaking
work had been devoted in the training of
the pupils fnr this exhibition, if it may be
so [railed, for certainly the parts were
well taken, especially when the youth
and numbers are considered. The teach
urs. Mr. Robert Watkin, and Miss L M.
Howell, hu.e cause lor congratulation
not only ir. lhe success ofthe concert, but
on account ofthe deep interest displayed
by pareuts and friends who crowded the
hall to repleton. The girls *A-6r*n dressed in white, and the i��ovs looked bright,
and neat, so that parents and teacher*-
alike must have been proud of their appearance, The singing was veiy creditable, and some nl the voices were charmingly sweet, rlie tableaux too, were
quite effective, while the dialogues and
recitations were in themselves sufficiently odd and mirth*provoking to be interesting. Thc best thing on the programme was the Drill. It appeared as if all
the pupils were engaged in its performance. As the audience watched the
various evolutions ot thc little soldiers
wiih their beautiful hoops lor muskets,
thc precis-on wiih which the ihc movements were executed, and ihc marching
and ciiuntci m.irchiii-*, all keeping step
to music, a genuine burst of admiration
was evoked, 111 which all joined.
It was lhe close of the school year, and
the vacation which was to follow on the
morrow with all its bright promises of joy
and relaxation was fraught at its begin*
nig with tbe pain of parting. The pupils
were unwilling ibat the occasion should
pass without some suitable expression on
lheir pari, in which most certainly their
parents joined.
As soon ns ���'God save thc Queen" had
been sung, the teachers fated ihe audience, but their 1 rst words were a signal
for a movement Of which they could not
have been aware. Master Alex, lliieve
and Miss Met tie / bram*. approached,
and the Rev. Mr. J. II. Higgins, who at
this juncture kindly acted as director indicated that Mr. Watkin's attention was
desired when Miss Abrams re.id in a
clear tnric and distinct eminication the
following
ADDRESS.
Dear teacher:���
We on behalf of the pupils of the
senior division, fee1, we can not allo.v
thi-opportunity to pass by, without, in
this public way, expressing our beany
appreciation uf your faithful efforts in
cur behalf during the past year. Hy constant, honest, untiring energy you have,
not only proved yourself an able and efficient teacher, but long ago convinced
us that you had our best interests at
bean.If we have not, through ack of whole
hearted application, made the swift progress you would have liked, or if we have
through thoughtlessness, given you extra
worry and annoy.u-cc, we would express
regret, and try, wllli jour abie assistance
to do better in (he future. Coming as
we do from different parts ofthe Dominion and elsew here, uccusloined, not onlv
to different teachers and methods, but to
different text books, rapid progress was
simply impossible. All things considered, wc trust you will not deem us over
sanguine when we state, that real pro-
grebs has been made.
As a disciplinarian vour course has
been marked by manly fairness and uni
form impartiality, and, as a slight token
of esteem and appreciation wc would ask
you to accept this album and with it the
hope that )om may thorcugbly enjoy your
vacation .ind return buoyant and strong
to begin liic work of another year.
Immediately idter they slept back, and
Master Xormuii .Short and Miss Grace
Sargent approached MUs Powell when
Miss Sargent read in u feeling manner
thc following
ADDRESS TO MISS POWELL.
Dear Teacher,
As tonight's entertainment brings
our year's work to a close we feel wc
would not be true to you did we not
express our appreciation ef your thorough
go.ng efforts on our behalf during the entire year.
Thc difficulties you have had to contend wiih were; almost insurmountable,
and yet we have, in all our studies, made
substantial progress. This desirable re
suit has been brought about largly by
you.
As a consequence of your uniform fairness and impartiality, our relations have,
all along, been mosi pleasant and agreeable. When discouraged we felt we bad
your kind sympathy, end out of every difficulty you willingly assisted us. If wc
have, over and over again, tried your patience, and if yonr kindness seemed, at
times, to have been lost upon us, remember we are but young and let youth plead
our cause.
On behalf of the pupils of thc junior
division of our school, we would assure
yuu of our confidence, and as a slight
token of deeply felt gratitude and es-
t.cm we ask you to accept these gloves
and handkerchief cases, and with them,
the hope that you may thoroughly enjoy
your well earned vacation and return,
with new energy, in begin with us the
wink of another year.
Mr. Watkin icp ied in a few well-chosen words in behalf of himself and Miss
Powell. Hut the manner of the teachers,
even more than ihe words of Mr. Wat-
kin's, expressed their gratification at the
leception which the evening s entertain
ment had met, and the plea-ant manner
in which the good will and respect of pupils and parents had been tendered.
The glove and handkerchief cases presented to Miss Powell were made of rich
satin, on which were painted clusters of
wild flowers, 'lhe album presented to
Mr. Watkin was large, heavy oak, tin
islied in thc grain on one side, while the
other was covered with rich, thick plush,
with ornamented clasps.

PICNIC PARTY.
One of the ptcasentcst of picnics was
that of last Thursday. A number left
Union and Comox on the morning of
thnt day taking tke Joan in Denman Inland wharf. There thev were met by
Mr. and Mrs Nixon wilh their steam
launch, and a small parly from Denman
Island. Putting aboard plenty of goodies
the launch steamed away to Deep Bay
where they landed near Ash Point. It
was a pleasant spot and the day was de-
lightful��� yes. simply perfect.
The partv were brought back in the
launch to thc Bay where a dance was improvised. The partv consisted of Mr.
and Mrs. Nixnn, J. Moore, James Curtis, Misses Maggie and Louise Louis,
Misses Maggie and Ella McDonald,
Miss Mary Butler, Mrs. Lindsay nf Union, Capt Pillsbury and Chief Engineer
Richards, of the Mineola, Miss Keenan
and Mrs Pickles.
Strawberry Festival.
The festival ofthe Ladies Aid of the
Presbyter|an church at Sandwick was in
everyway a great success. The church
wis crowded to its doors, and the ladies
have reason to congratulate themselves
on ihe re-ulis. The only untoward event
was the f.ii'ure of the berries to arrive
from Ladnm-'s in season, and their poor
condition when they rame to hand, but
thc enterprising managers procured during the dnv sulticent from Nob Hill to
make a very good display. Al the close
of the entertainment, votes of thanks
were extent ed In tho chairman, to Mr.
Geo. Grieve, who went to Union to see
about thc berries, to llie Indies who hid
so successfully managed the affair and
singularly enough, this lime, Thk Nkws
for free adverii-ing was nol forgotten and
came in for a share of thanks.

Fattening:.
Tlio market demands that all animals
intended for meat should b�� reasonably fat
before tliey ean be eous-idcrod as being fit
for market, lienerally this implies tlie
feeding ot a fattening ration for at least a
short time before sending to market. Uow
long this feeding bhould be kept up must
be largely determined by the condition of
the animal. One advantage iu keeping all
animals intended for meat in a good, thrifty
condition during growth is, that but a
short feed will be required to properly
finish for market. While fat is essential
in securing the best price, an excess of fat
rather reduces than Increases the profit.
The careful feeder must hfl able to determine when the most profitable stage has
been reached, and then sell.
Iu nearly all cases, and in nearly all
seasons, in order lo feed to the bent advantage, it will be best in fattening to gradually increase the rations until they are on
full feed, rather than to iced heavily from
the start. One objection to putting on
feed too suddenly Is thfl danger of putting
an animal oil" its feed. Often when this is
done it will require several days of careful
feeding to get back to a good, thrifty gain,
ami this is so much really lost. Stock cm
be fattened at any time, provided good care
is taken in the management ; but the hot
woatlier ot summer aud the extremely cold
weather of winter are the most unfavorable
heasons, and generally it, will be found a
guud plan to manage to fecit so that it will
not be necessary to fatten al these timos.

omnibuses and (rucks, hnve been the aim
of   British electricans.   Perhaps  the fact
hat there are some 22,000 milea ot excellent turnpike roads in (ireat Britain, and
that farmers are largely using steam en gine
for hauling their traffic over the roads haB
something to do with direction of thoir
investigations.
A few weeka ago an electric parcels van
was run experimentally through the busiest
of London's streets, aod an electric omnibus
made similar trial trips about the same
time. So far as the operation of the vehicles
was concerned the experiments wore a success. The designers claim equal success for
the financial end of the experiment. Three
companies have been formed to operate
vehicles of this character aud other vehicles
with the same methods of traction, and it
ia declared by tho experts that the era of
electric traction for all purposes, on common roads, has definitely set in.
The experiments looking to this end have
been in progress twelve, years or more. An
electric tricycle was invented and run for a
brief period by Prof. Ayrton about 1885,
and in I HHl'i an electric cab, the first electric
vehicle of the kind carrying its own energy
in storage form, was invented and operated
by Mr. Radelifl'e Ward, who is the inventor
of the latest success, the electric omnibus.
The cab was run in Uriah ton for sonu
montha and demonstrated the possibilities
of this method of traction, but not its

vehicles only demonstrated the power of
electricity to move vehicles ou common

such vehicles still a problem.
The motive power for all such vehicles
on common roads is, of course derived from
storage batteries carried iu the vehicles
themselves, antl the weight of theae bat
teries and the coat of charging and recharging them has alwaya been the crux of the
situation. It ie believed by the inventors
of at least two types of electric road vehicles, and by a large number of business men
and capitalists who have formed companies
to develop and operate them, that the
difficulty has now lieen solved.
Both the clectrioal omnibus and the electric parcels van shown in the accompanying

The Freie Buhno publishes the diary of a
1 icriuan functionary eai ahlished iu the < Um-
croon country, which throws a lurid light
upon the conduct of thu 'I eutonic aitlhi
ties in that region. The following extracts
need no comment :
"March 13. The official documents in
reference to the revolt of the Bakokos are
full of inaccuracies. The Assessor, Wehlan,
who commanded the expedition, may easily
after burning the village have cut off the
heads of some old women, but he certainly
did not bring baok the 150 prisoners which
his report speaks of. In reality only
twelve or fifteen were taken, and they
were worn out or wounded, and for the
moat part old Men,* women and children,
they were all brutally beaten aud loaded
with chains. Three of them died of hunger
under the shadow nf the Cer man flag. The
few prisoners captured iu this campaign are
at present doing penal service iu the port,
and they are dying off fast.
"March 17. I gather aome new details
of this so-called campaign against the Bakokos. The prisoners were kept all day
under a broiling sun on the deck of the
Soden, and bound in suoh a way that the
wounds in their limbs became worm eaten.
When the wretched creatures were on the
point of dying they were shot down like
wild beasts. The official reports concealed
these facte. Nobody knows, or, rather,
nobody tells, of the frightful crimes committed in the Dark Continent. But, even
in the reports to which I refer, there is an
account of a prisoner who endeavored to
escape, and who, on being recaptured, waB
immediately decapitated.
"March 31. The Assessor Wehlan has
returned from a new expedition. He brings
back no prisoners. 'As they were all dying,'
said he at table, 'I ordered them to be
killed on board.' Aud then he added,
'The soldiers seemed to take pleasure in torturing them.'
"dune 23. Herr von Oertzen, Governor
of the district of Krilu saya that the report
of the Assessor,. Wehlan, in reference to
the last expedition, is not all true, it appears from thia report that threo ofthe
prisoners were hanged, hut aa a matter of
luct, uccurding to the statement of the
engineer,Cebhardt, of Iho Nachtigal, the
'niggers were butchered with knives, because Assessor Wehlan gave orders that nn
guns should be used in their execution,1
"Dec. 15. Chancellor Leiut ordered the
wives of our colored soldiers to be whipped
for not having worked hard enough for him.
In the presence nf the soldiers drawn up iu
line, each woman received ten lashes of a
whip made nf the hide of a hippopotamus,
Herr Lejstsuperintended the flogging. The
ncreams of the unfortunate women could be
heard a long way oil. One can imagine the
rage which such a spectacle produced among
soldiers long previously irritated against a
government from which they received only
kicks for pay."
Tlie diary gives further details of cruel
and shocking treatment of the native wo*
men, and shows that the outbreak was the
result of the barbarities of Leist and Wehlan.

found the genial captain, his wife, daughter
and three sons constituted ihe family. Of
thu three stalwart young men it was impossible to pick out the one who hiul for sn
many years beou such a sullt-rer, but the
captain settled all doubts by referring me
to"Will," William R. Hall, more familiarly
known as Will, presented the appearance of
a hearty young man about .'ill yaars of ago.
His story is briefly related as follows : He
had beeu a sufferer from tits from his sixth
biitbday, a childish fright being supposed
to have been ihu original cause. For years
he would fall down anywhere without being
in tbo least able to help himself, the doctors
from Hamilton uud various distant points
were in vain called in attendance. Medicines were piocured from numerous sources
iu Canada, the United States and even from
England, without avail. The boy became
so utterly helpless that aeven years ago he
was compelled to keep his bed, and uutil a
year ago wis completely helpless. The tits
sometimes came ou him so Beverely that he
would sutler from as mauy as fifteen iu one
day, and at such times it was so difficult
for him to get his broath, that his nurses
had to wash him with liquor. At this time
he was so low that the neighbors who
dropped in to see him expected to hear ot
hiB death almost any moment. This eon
tinued until about a year ago, when the
newspaper articles relating the wonderful
cures by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
induced Mr. Hall to give them a trial, and
to the great satisfaction of himself and his
friends he began to mend not long after be
ginning their use, and in three or four
mouths was sufficiently recovered to be able
to go out of doors. Ho continued taking
the pills, and fcr the past six months has
been as strong and about as well as either
of his brothers, and haa attended to
the stock and done his share of the work
on his father'*- farm and fruit garden.     Before  Mr. Hall began taking the
Pink Pills he was so thin and light that oue
of his brothers could carry him upstairs
without the leastditficulty, but he has since
gained fifty pounds in weight. He haB not
taken any other medicine since he began
taking Dr. Williams' Pink i'ills, ami although a fit of a very mild natuie occasion
ally comes on him now, he is ao nearly cured
that his father took great pleasure in giving
the information here recorded, "It is over
a mouth since I had a spell," said William
as the reporter was leaving, "and even
when 1 do have one now it is not nearly so
hard aa before I began to take the l'mk
I'ills. The neighbors look surprised to see
me drive over to Hamilton aa i frequently
do, for they all thought I would die long
ago, I am pleased at the wonderful progress I have made, and am very glad my
experience is to be published, as it may be
of value to some ouo else."
Every statement in thia article may be
verified by a visit 10 the home of Captain
Hal), ex-councillor of East Flamboro' who
has resided on the Plains road tor the past
eighteen years, and whose word ia as good
as his bond among those who know him.
The reporter also had a conversation with
several of Captain Hall's neighbors, and the
story of William Hall's recovery was verified to his full satifactiun.
Such well voritied cases as the abovo provo
the wonderful efficacy of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills in the treat ment of all diseases of
the nervous system, aud stamp the remedy
as unique in the annals of medicine. St.
Vitus' dance, locomotor ataxia, partial par*
alyais, rheumatism, sciatica, chronic erysipelas, nervous headache, the after effects
of Ja grippe, and all diseases depending
upou a depraved condition of thu blood,
speedily yield to a treatment with the great
medicine. By restoring the blood to a
healthy condition, and rebuilding tha nerves
they speedily drivo out disease and leave
the patient in the enjoyment of vigorous
health. They are also a specific for the
troubles peculiar to women, and soon bring
the rosy glow of health to pale and sallow
cheeks. In the case uf men they eflect a
radical cure in troubles arising from over
work, mental worry or excesses of any na
ture.
The public are cautioned against imitations and substitutes said to be "just as
good," These aru only offered by some unscrupulous dealers because there is a larger
profit for them in the imitation. There is
110 other remedy can successfully tako the
placo of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and those
who are iu need of a medioine should insist
upon gotting the genuine, which are always
put up in boxes hearing the words "Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Palo People," If
you cannot obtain them from your dealer,
they will be scut post-paid on receipt of 5(1
cents a box, or $2,50 for six boxes, by addressing the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,

HEART  FAILURE.
A Kew Ill-tea*!-' lhat la Brromlug Very
Prevalent--The Cansrs lo Whleh II
Is Ascribed.
Boston, May oth.���It is very strange
the number of new and deadly diseases that
have become prevalent during the latter
part of this century. Whether such diseases existed before our day it is h ml to
tell, but there is certainly a terrible fatality
attached to several diseases apparently of
modern origin. Some wise men say tint
the man of the future will be both toothless
and hairless all through evolution-���that
interesting process discovered by Darwin,
Whether this is true or not, several deadly
diseases have become alarmingly prevalent
recently, that were not known twenty
year* ago. For Instance, there is diphth -ria,
which is one of the deadliest diseases
known. Bright'.-* disease is another malady
modern in origin, and typhoid fever was
little known fiity years ago, neither was
la grippe. These diseases may bo due!
largely lo modern methods of living, the
food, the conking,* aod the surroundings.
This topic is receiving a good deal of attention at the hands of the French and (Icrmau
doctors.
A new disease ofa very deadly character
is heart failure. This disease is becoming
alarmingly frequent, so frequent iu fuel,
that it is aim- st an epidemic. Heart failure wns almost unknown before la grippo
laid siege to the human system a few years
ago. Now hardly a newspaper can be
pick-id up without containing the record of
thu death of some well-known man from
this disease. Many doctors say that tbey
cannot account for hcarl failure, that even
tho healthiest persons aio not fiee from it.
There are a few (iermim dootors wbo bave
been recently Investigating tlm matter, and
thoy ascribe heart failure tn a poisoning of
the heart, or a weakening of the nerves
that control the heart's action, through the
taking of many of tho fancy drugs recently
placed on the market as tonics to take I he
place of quinine. The action of a great
many of theso preparations with high Bound-
iug names, for expelling fevers, headaches
and colds, is not yet well defined, although
every day prescribed by doctors in their
mixtures and they are nearly alt heart depressors. Anything that interferes with
the action of the heart is a heart poison, and to the reckless prescription of
these fancy drugs by doctors the most
learned l iei iiiiiu physicians aro now ascribing the prevalence of heart failure. Another cause given is the reckless preparation anil use of tonics for tho nerves nnd
blood purifiers put up in liquid form. These
so-called blood purifiers and nerve tonics
oc 11tain strychnine and other poisons in
solution, the most dangerous method of
administering these drugs. '' Shake well"
invariably means that there is strychnine
in the mixture, for strychnine sinks to the
bottom, aud if the bottle is not thoroughly
shaken the lost doses are poisonous, aud in
many cases absolutely dangerous. The
effects of many of these deadly poisons on
the heart is accumulative, that is to say,
they are slow poisons. The patient feels all
right and in good health when he is taking
them, but he occasionally has a feeling of
"goneness" over the heart, and a prickly
sensation in tho fingers and toes. Nothing
is thought of this until all of a sudden the
heart stops and death comes in a moment.
There are certain diseases that also leave a
poison iu the blood that paralyzes the action
of the heart. La grippe, lyphoid aud
diphtheria aro always followed hy bad
blood, and heart failure,
A caso of this kind occurred in this city
this spring. Eugene Thomas, a wood-turn*
er by trade, took la grippe and after he
recovered he was troubled with peculiar
P-iiin* and a "gone" feeliug over the hearl.
The doctors told bim to be very careful as
he was subject 10 heart failure, and not to
jump out of bed suddenly or climb a long
stairs without taking a rest, lie got so
bad at last that his heart would almost
stop if he stood up. He had to quit work
and lo remain 111 bed or else propped up
with cushions on a sofa so iu to glvfl his
heart as little work as possible. Furling
that other medioines won doing him little
good, he was led to try a box of Schiller's
Sarsaparilla Pills. Five boxes completely
cured him of all heart trouble and be is
as well as ever. He believes that if it wore
not for Schiller's Sarsaparilla Pills he
would be in his grave from heart failure.

CHAPTER XI.
Things wont nn in this way for leveral
weeka, it may very well have been aix or
aeven or even more ; I will not really undertake to say. 1 know, however, that 1
had heard from Sir Henry several times.
With short-baud clerks ut his disposal, hie
tendency to bo prolix grew upon him, and
I actually believe that the tedious letters
he sent me were rough draft of despatches
afterward*] toned down, mellowed and
varnished for the Foreign Ollioe.
1 uaed to read them, having nothing muoh
else to do, aud dutifully to acknowledge
them and answer any questions lhey might
contain. Aud in it dull inelbodic.il kind of
way 1 folded thorn up and docketed thorn,
anil put tbem away in a despatch-box. Thia
was really the only responsibility which
my marriage at thia time entailed upon
mo,
Mra. forteseue still stopped on, and
bowed no intention nf going. She reminded me of one of those funny little animals
whioh you see at the Aquarium���tho hermit crab.
Mr, Hermit < "rah has powerful claws,
aud a well-armored cheat, but the remainder of hia body ia hopelessly aoft and unprotected. So he tines himself, tuil tirst,into aomo
convenient shell���usually that uf adeceased
whelk, hiding his defenceless portion within
it, aud boldly thrusting bis mailed half-nut
at the door. Wheu he is tired of hia particular shell he -jives it up for another, and
if !.e sees a smaller hermit than himself
with a more comfortable home, he promptly
luga him out of it and takes possession
himself,   Thia was Mra. Focieacue all over.
At present she had a shell that suited
her. Hut ahe waa ready any day to change
it lor a better. She had not even the common industry of the spider which constructs
its own web, or the caddia worm which
builds ita own house.
But on the other hand ahe was distinctly
atnuaing,and in many ways very useful. She
was a parasite, uo doubt, but one of those
parasites that give no annoyance. On the
contrary, aho alwaya had aome happy suggestion aa to how tbe day ought to bo
spent. She took all the trouble of housekeeping ott" my hands. She could guesa
my humors, and new to a nicety when to
���peak, and when to keep a tranquil and
golden ailence.
And I think I may honestly say, that in
my case at auy rate, ahe waa exempt from
flattery, whioh ia the besetting weakness
of parasites. If anything, ahe was frank,
and would oven take me to task with auch
justice that it waa impossible to be angry,
aud with such geniality and humor that It
waa equally impossible not to be amuaed.
In faot, 1 really believe that alio had
found me useful at tbe outset, and had
ended by liking me as it was her nature lo
like anybody.
Mr. Sabine soon became a regular visitor.
There waa no yachting at Brighton, he explained, because it waa a lee ahore, ami
harborlosa. The Brighton Harriers wero
beneath contempt, the! him* was a gallop
from first to last, with uo hunting in it,
and if there was a check for more than ten
aeconda, the hounds were lifted. It waH
no more hunting than circus riding in
horsemanship.
For himself, he had long ago uome to the
conclusion that ouo of the greatest pleaaurea
in life ja to do notluug in your way and at
your own time. And he thus found sulti dent
occupation.
Win ii Mrs. Forteseue press.*.! bim as lo
how he dealt with the "wicked old enemy,*'
and begged him with much coyness to teach
ber his infallible secret af perpetual youth
and spirits, he answered cheerfully that he
feared the methods which ho employed were
beyond a lady's reach*
He used, he explained, to commence the
day with a plunge into tho sea from the
bathing station under the end of the pier;
then he allnwed the weather to guide him.
Sometimes he would play tennis; at others
he would go out with tbe fishing boata; at
others walk or ride on the downs. Sometimes he would drive tandem, a secret, he
addtd, which uot even Americans had ever
mastered, although American gentlemen
were our equals in most things, and our
betters in not a few.
Cricket, tandem, and tennis ; were all
peculiarly Knglish. Tbey all required
nerve, health, high animal spirits, and considerable patience and practice ; and it
waa for thia reason thai ho waa so fond of
them.
Of course Mra. Forteseue had nothing to
aay in reply,
The least approach to common-sense waa
alwaya sullicient to neutralise her babble of
common-place. And Mr. Sabine combined
the atrongeat common-sense with a humor
which, as he pleased, could be either genial
or exasperating. Mra. Forteseue certainly
did not aeem to fled it gonial.
Some few days later I was out alone, M ra.
Forteseue had gol what she called a sick
..jadache, I turned ou to thu Parade and
was leisurely making my way towards
Hove, when I recognized a springy step be*
hind mo, and the next moment Mr. Sabine
was at my side.
I was more than usually disposed to welcome him, for 1 was irritated out of measure with the Dean, with iny husband and
I might almost aay with the world generally.
Mr. Sabine seemed to divine this, and
almost majestically accommodated himaelt
to my humor.
I remember he hail wilh him an immense
hound almost as large aa a calf,and brindled,
with white tcot and a white blaze on his
cheat. I inquired about tbu monster, and
Mr. Sabine told me that it was a bear-
hound from the kennels of the * V.ur at
Moscow, and that lie had obtained it
through the Russian Ambassador at
Paria.
"Look at him," ho aaid, as, half in play,
and halt by way of reminder towards good
behavior, ho gave tbe brute a gentle kick
in the ribs, "he will tackle a Russian bear
almost as big ard as heavy as a dray horse,
and enjoy the business into the bargain ; as
for a man iinurnied.lic would tear his throat
out in a moment."
"A nice sort of an animal to take ahoul,"
I remarked,
"I have been warned once or twice," be
replied, "that it was dangerous to have him
around but Serge obeys mu don't you,
Serge ?"
And !*'e.*ge, hearing bis name in the
interrogation, looked up with an ugly
kind of growl, fawned with his tail, and,
in obedienos of tbu gesture slunk to heel,
and slouched along behind us. His manner
in itH eanino f-ishion was so distinctly
belligerent as to almost make oue feel
uncanny.
Presently, I oannot tell how, 1 found Mr.
Sabine talking lo mo in a low tone, but
earnestly and aluioHt passionately. I knew
that I ought not to listen, I knew that 1
ought to leave him then uud thero, to seek
any refuge, to escape from him under uny
pretext. Ami yet 1 listened and let him
talk on.
1 had read before ibeu how the serpent
fascinates its prey, and how the snuke
charmer in his own turn asserta the ultimate
superiority of man of fascinating the ser
pent. No one who haa ever been in the
East doubts for a moment that certain
Hindoos possess thia particular skill, just
aa certain men���-Van Amburgh, Carter,
Bidel, and Maccomo are born domptenrs,
before whom the savage beast quails.
Now thia man had thia particular kind of
power,whatever it may lie and however acquired. There waa nothing supernatural in
it.
Van  Amburgh  would  have laughed in
f-oiir face if yon had told him that he re-
ied upon anything beyond the power of
hia own nervea consciously exercised. So
it seemed to be with Mr. Sabine. He bad
made up his mind to have his own way, he
took it, ami he had it without thu show of
a dispute.
For myself I ought hardly to si) that I
began to abandon all idea of resistance to
his wishes ; for, to be exact, the very word
abandon implies quito aa much a conscious
resolution aa is involved in the act of laying
down your arms or hauling down your
flag.
I somehow found myself drifting, as a
sailing Teasel will in a strong current when
there is not so much as a capful of wind
to fill her sails or give her thu way to hold
lu her helm.
1 kuow perfectly well what was going to
happen.    1 could sec il   all   before   me us
did Tennyson's "Lady of f-thalott" when,
"Seeing all her own mischance witb i_
ghastly countenance she looked down to
Camelot,"
Why should I trouble 1 Why weary
myself 1 Destiny was atronger than I aud
would work thinga nut in its own way.
One evening, about the beginning uf November���as a matter of f-int It waa the verv
lirat day of that mouth���Mr. Sabine called
iu the afternoon. It waa tive o'clock, and
twilight waa past. Mis. Forteseue was
indisposed, a bad sick headache had con-
lined her to her room. Such, at all events
waa her excuse; although I believe that,
as a matter of fact, sho waa awaiting the
arrival of certain very special cosmetics
from town, for the freah air of Brighton
tries the complexion terribly, as poor Mra,
Skewton found out.
After we had aome tea Mr. Sahine sug-
fjested a stroll, and I gladly threw on a
leavy cloak and sallied out with him on to
tbe Parade. Wo sauntered down the King's
Itoad, and as we made our way along a
ainart man in quiet navy blue and gold
buttons, with a broad gold band round his
cap, stepped forward, touched tho peak ot
hia cap, and fell back again.
" I bad quite forgotten to tell you," aaid
Mr. Sabine carelessly, "my yacht ia lying
here. Would yon care Lo see ber'; We
can go on board for a few minutes."
We went down some battered old stone
atepa and picked our way over the shingle
where a four-oared cutter waa lying in
wait every man at hia thwart aud the cox-
swain iu the stern.
In a moment we were off, and before 1
knew it I was on board the yacht. It was
ao dark that I oould make very little out;
but I distinctly remember the quiet luxury
and comfort of the cabin, wh-ch waa fitted
in dark walnut with deep crimson velvet
and gold and tit by swinging lamps moat
carefully trimmed.
We seemed to have been expected. Anyhow, a steward, unordered, brought iu a
variety of dainties worthy of the " Arabian
Nights," and 1 just remember running riot
like a schoolgirl with a cup of chocolatc,some
superb grapes thickly covered with their
own bloom and some little marvels of
French confectionary, all of whioh appeared
and disappeared.
Mr, Sabine having obtained my permission, by way of formality, to light a cigar,
and having accomplished the process satisfactorily, removed it from his mouth and
gravely commenced.
'Suppose, Lady ('raven, at thia moment
you begun lo hear tbe engines throb and to
feel thu vessel vibrate, and fouud that we
had weighed anchor and were under steam
for the South?"
1 just hesitated for a moment. Then 1
looked at him and said defiantly :
"You would never do sueh a thing.
Vou know as well as I do that it would be
cowardly. And, whatever you are, you
are not a coward."
He seemed pleased and laughed merrily.
"No," be Baid, "it would be a very
cowardly thing to do und very treacherous,
1 always prefer fair fight. It ia utterly
untrue that all ia fair in love andwar. It
is not fair, for instance, to buy a man's
laughter at the price of his debta, n position, and un income. I value nothing
myself for which I have not fought. Look
there."
He pointed to the cornice of the cabin,
and 1 saw in a small glass case, griuning
through roods and sedge, the bead of an
Indian tiger. Beneath in a small caae hung
a heavy hunting knife.
"I killed him with that," he aaid; "ripped him up, in fact, before he had time to
perform the same service for myself. Here
ia ono of hia claws," And he detached
from his watch-chain an immense talon aet
in a filagree of gold.
"And here, if the sight of It will not
make you scream or faint, ia the scar."
Aud he drew up hia aleeve above the elbow.
There, clearly enough, ran down the whole
length of the arm a long, deep scratch,
looking as if aome cruel alcel hook had
drugged like a ploughshare through the
flesh,
I could nnt help a little cry.
"Oh, no," he laughed, you need not be
afraid of me, Lady Craven, I love you too
deeply not to respect you, and 1 have full
faith in my own star. Kvery thing in thia
world cornea to the man who trusts himself,
whether his object bo an embassy, or a pearl
beyond lhe price of empires. Come j let
me aee you ashore."
He blew a shrill call on a whistle and
offered me his arm up the companion. At
the aide of the veaael lay tho long boat, aud
after a very few strong, sharp strokes her
bow was grinding on the shingle.
He sprang on the beach and held out his
hand. In a second I was by hia aide. We
were exactly opposite tho Btreot leading to
Monipelicr Koad, and in a very few minutes I was at my own door.
"I deserve something;" he said, with a
low laugh, "for my self-denial in nnt slipping cable as, if I recollect my Kton days
rightly, Jason did. But I will not inllict
myself upon you to-night; I shall try to
lind vou in to-morrow. Meantime I tbink
I ahall for once iu a wuy stroll round to tho

I had taken "If my right glovo and had
given him my hand. Ho caught iny band
and raised it to bis lips, The glove he
thrust into the breast of bis eoal, ami he
then stood bareheaded in the street for one
or two brief seconds until tbe door had
closed upon me.
Mi*B. I'ortcscue had beard that I was out.
Apparently tlm news had restored ber, for
she had come down to the sitting-room and
was patiently awaiting my arrival.
"Where on earth have you been, dear
Miriam, at this unearthly hour, and iu this
terrible weather I"
1 looked ber full in the face. "I have
been to and fro upon the earth, Mrs. Fort-
ch-jiic, something like Satan iu the Book of
.lob, who went about looking for an honest
man. I, however, hava been looking for an
honest woman, and, not finding her abroad,
bave como homo to yourself."
"Vou are joking, my dear," simpered
Mra. Forteseue, as u bright red patch burst
mu upon each cheek, blu/.iug luridly through
the powder and enamel.
"No, Mrs. Forteseue ; on tho contrary, I
never was more iu earnest in my life. And
now that I am home at last, and really very
tired with the sea air, I think 1 shall go
straight to bed."
"Won't you bave any dinnerT"
I declined all creature eninfi ri.8, and iu
their placo ordered an ample supply of hot
water to bo taken up lo my bed-room,
Then I sat fnr u while before the tire and
watched its ruins oruinblo away iuto bridges
and mountain*passes, nud at laat I arose
with a superstitious kind of shudder, and,
after a brief good-night to Mrs. Forteseue,
made my way to my own room.
The day had thoroughly wearied me oat,
and I was soon asleep. My sleep, however,
waa disturbed by dreams, not ao muoh
terrible as amusing.
Somehow or other we were all on board
the yacht together, and my father, in a
moment of abject depression from seasickness, had proposed to Mra. Forteseue
and been accepted by ber. And Sir Henry
waa writing ceaseless despatches, and talking to everybody. And Mr. Sahine was
at the wheel, and I waa seated close by
him.
And then the aea and the sky together
turned into one glorious glimmer of dim
purple light. The waves fell. Our path lay
through great beds ot water-lillies, theatara
hung down from heaven, as if you could
reach out your hand and pluck them like
ripe fruit. And then, somehow, there atole
over me tho sense rather than the sound
Itself of dim far-oil' music, and my tired
eyelids closed on iny tired eyea.
CHAPTER XII
One afternoon, about a fortnight later,
was iu the drawing-room, reading. It was
a dull day, and I was near the lire, which
crackled cheerfully. The particular book
that interested mo happened to be, by a
curious kiud of coincidence, Heokford's
"Vathek."
I had given orders that I waa not at
home, bo 1 wua not troubled by a loud
knock at the door, Tn tny surprise, the
person who bud knocked came straight in,
straight up the staircase, threw open the
door and entered the room.
It was Sir Henry himself, and he waa
obviously in a state of the most extreme
and violent excitement.
I roae to my feet and advanced to greet
him, hut ho waved me baok with both Ida
hands, and I could aee he was quivering
with emotion.
In a few seconds he sufficiently recovered
himself to sit down. I, for my part, remained standing, not to give myself any
advantage over him, but simply in utter
bewilderment.
Wheu he found speech at last, his utterance was alow und labored, and I cannot
help admitting that I was aeized with a
feur lest ho should be taken suddenly with
a tit.
"I have heard everything," ho aaid, or
Btamtnerod out, "and I know everything.
Explanations and excuses are out of the
question. I have come down to-day,
against the express advice of my aolioitora,
to let you know as much, and also to tell
you that in thia world we shall never
meet again. I could wiah it had been
otherwise. It is a aad ending to my
life, and it is absolute ruin to yours.
But we cannot undo what haa been
done. I suppose���I know you never cared
for ine ; but I had hoped you might loam,
at any rate, to like me. That hope is now
post, and it only remains for both of us to
forget, if we can possibly do so." And
here the old man fairly broke down.
I waa so astonished, that I could hardly
ask what he meant, aud what had happened
to ao agitate him.
"Don't pretend ignorance," he replied,
you undcr-nand mc perfectly well. Heaven
knows this miserable business gives me
more pain than it does you. Vour father
1 do not suppose, will trouble himself.
But I have my own honor to guard, and
where that is concerned, I am rosolute aud
immoveable."
Again 1 looked at him in blank bewilderment.
'1 do not suppose you will marry him,"
he proceeded. "In fact, I am aure that he
will never marry you, and had never the
alightest intention of doing so, under any
conceivable set of circumstances, whatever
he may have led you to believe or suppose.
1 may aay good-bye, I cannot aay Cod bless
you; but I hope that the remainder of your
lifo may bo happy, and ita end brighter
than thut of mine is now   destined to be,"
Again 1 advanced towards him, and again
he motioned me awuy. Then he passed
through tho door, und I heard him descend
the stairs with alow Atepa and make bia
way into tho street. From the window I
saw him gut into u Ily, and motion the flyman to drive away.
1 sat down for some few minutes and
wondered ; but my wonder did not help
me to any solution of the problem, Then I
hastily hurried on a bonnet and cloak, and
mado my way down to the Parade, where I
walked slowly along, revolving the situation
and wondering dazedly what might come of
Never, I suppose, could woman have felt
more helpless and isolated in this world.
My tuther, the Dean, was the frailest of all
broken reeds. Jackson had evidently some-
bow boen making mischief for her own purposes. Mr. Sabine had gone to town, as I
knew. Mrs. Forteseue was the ouly soul
to whom I oould turn; and 1 had never
longed for her so much as I did at that
minute.
Aa luck would have it I mel her within a
very few seconds. She waa making her way
homewards and quickened her puce as aho
saw mo.
Why, Miriam, what ia the matter with
you*- You look as if you had seen a ghost;
und I believe you are trembling. In fact,
I can aee you are. We cannot go to Mutton's with you looking like that. Now just
come with me,"
She seized my arm, hurried me along for
some few yards, and then dragged me into
a chomiata shop, where ahe administered a
compound whioh she ordered unhesitatingly. One notices trifles at timos like these,
and I noticed that the ohemiat seemed
amused at her professional knowledge.
We loft the shop, and made the beat of
our way home. Mra, Forteseue motioned
me to the sofa and aaid, "Lie down my
dear child." Then ahe rang the bell sharply,
and inquired for Jackson.
Miss Jackson bail gone out,
"That is all right," lauihed Mr.-, Forteseue, as tho door closed. Then she locked
iho door itself, aad gently and deftly
inserted her pocket-handkerchief into the
key-hole. Then she came and sat down on
tbo edge of lho sola by my aide,
" Now, my dear, I ean guess pretty woll
whai is coming ; but at the autre time, I
am dying lo hear all about it from yourself
in your own way. Of course, you have
heard from that old mummy, and ho has
threatened all kinds of things,"
" Sir Henry has boon here," I replied.
" Whew !" Mre. Forteacue fairly whistled in her amazement, " 1 never kuew such
a mummy soeatvanlzed before.   Oome here
himself, nua he? And did he condescend to
artlfllllfttfl speech, or was ho diplomatic and
Unintelligible '.' Or die be toar his wig, und
crack bis stays witb emotion, genuine or
feigned ."
'��� Not at all,'' I said. " None of these
things. The matter is far moiu serious
than you think, and of that I urn convinced. He was very deeply moved,
and evidently in earnest. Ita told me
I bat we should never meet again, and
lhat 1 was disgruced forever, that be had
lett tbe whole mailer to his solicitors, that
he should refuse to see mc, and that he
should take no explanation or excuses,"
"Ob, indeed," said .Mrs KorteHoue, snapping her lipa together smartly, "Oh,
indeed, what a very big inun to be sure !
Almost loo big to condescend to be Ambassador, even at St, Petersburg. Well, my
dear I should say for my part, if I were
you, thut tho whole thing was a lucky
riddance of bad rubbish, and should be
disposed to feel correspondingly thankful.
And is that really all?"
"Thatisall," I unswored. "Surely it
is enough."
"Enough) my dear Miriam," Baid Mrs.
Fortecue. "Quite enough. I do not seo
bow thinga could possibly havo turned out
bettor."
This waa a novel view of tho situation for
me, and I wondered what it might mean,
" Look hero, my dear," and tbo little
woman began to check oh" her points upon
her fingers. ������ Vou are rid of your father
for life, that ia the lirat clear point you
havo scored, Yen are rid of your husband,
who says he ia never coming back. Mind
you keep him to that promise. Well, that
is the second point. Vou have uot a magnificent but a very good income. Vou are
entirely your own mistress, aud of course
the old fellow cannot live for ever. What
there is to grizzle about I fail to aee."
"Sir Henry is going to divorce me," 1
stammered out. " I shall be disgraced for
ever," aud here I fairly broke down.
" Divorce you !" cried Mrs. Forteseue.
" Where are hia prnofa ? He can't go into
Court on his suspicions, you know. Suspicions go for nothing, even in diplomacy.
Where are his proofs?"
At this moment there wai a knock at
the door. 1 held up my finger for silences
and then quietly undid the lock. It wu,
the housemaid���a pleaaaot girl enough, too
honest to have been listening, and too
simple to huve understood anything if she
had.
" What ia it, Mary?" I asked,
"If you please, my lady, Misa Jackson
has just gone away, my lady, and have
told ine to tell your ladyahip that her
wages is paid up to date, and that she'll
send for her boxes to-morrow morning."
Mra. Forteseue looked at me and laughed,
"Voila lavipere dana lea tleura. That
woman waa aliout as bad and treacherous

or cockatrice, or whatever ynu call it.

Modern Bridges and Sluices.
During the past ten years there haa been
a great Improvement in the construction of
email   bridges  and  sluices,   especially aa
regards efficacy and durability.   The im-
SRWKB     ril'E     BRIlUJK   WITH     MASONRY

provement consists mainly in thc use of
vitrified s-swer pipe, which, if properly
placed in position, will be found in good
condition after many yeara, while the common wooden and stone sluices, as usually
constructed, need more or leaa attention
after a time.
Where the old wooden or stone sluice ia
one foot aquare, a sewer pipe ten inches
inside diameter will remove the water
equally aa well, as there is comparatively
no f riotion and no impediment or stoppage as
by the old process, aa the water glides
noiselessly through on the smooth, glazed
surface. The chief points to be observed
in the uae of these pipea is to have the upper
surface of the pipe at least one foot below
the surface of the roadway, and that the
discharge or outlet end be at least four
inches lower than the upper or inlet. Also
that when discharged the water Hows otf
freely, and doea not back up into the pipe.
Danger from the latter need only be feared
during winter.
It is not an uncommon thing to see sluices
and bridgea of pipe where the wuter haa
formed a channel alongside the pipe, and
the earth haa caved in from the road surface. This of course shows faulty construe-
tion, stones and piecea of the old sluices
having lieen placed in contact with tho
outer surface of pipe, and during high
wuter none uf it finds its way along the
interstices thua formed, and toon enough
aoil is removed to cause trouble. Hence
nover place atone or wood in auch positions,
but fill in with earth firmly rammed.
For bridgea, or where the pipe ia over a
foot in diameter, tho bank upou the inlet
Bide ahould ba laid up with stoneor brick,
iising water limo or cementfor tbe purpose,
as shown in the illustration. Whore the
filling above the pipe jb from four to ten
feet, thia wall will generally be fouud
cheaper thau purchasing three or four extra
lengths of pipe, aud hauling the earth necessary for u sloping bank. A slake driven
firmly in the channel of a stream, about
two feet from the inlet, will catch all flood-
wood and debris, and prevent the clogging
of the pipe, Thia ia seemingly a email
matter but it is a very important oue.
A Story of Future Wealth.
There ia reason to hopo that the world
may be greatly enriched through the reaulta
of an important series of observations and
experiments now boing carried on to determine juat how certain plants manage to
assimilate nitrogen from thc atmosphere.
It has been discovered that such plants as
peas, beans, and clovers have their roots
invaded by myriads of minute organiama,
which may be either bacteria or parasitic
fungi.
These organisms iu some unknown way
incite the plants to increased activity bo
that they are able to assimilate free nitrogen from the atmosphere, and thereby to
supply, through their own aubaequetut decay, an abundance of nitrates, nitrites,
ammonia, and other nitrogenous substances
to the aoil, Kttbrts are being made to determine whether eomo other stimulus, besi.iea
that furnished by tho origanisms referred
to, may not be applied to plants whicli will
enable them slill more effectually lo assimilate nitrogen from the air for the ulimate
enrichment of the aoil, Tho importance of
then*- investigations may Iw judged from
the following statement made by Prof. H*
Marshall Ward, a loading authority on the
physiology of plants:
"This question,be it emphatically stated,
promisee to be of more importance to agriculture in the future than any legislation
aa to prices, etc., that we can conceive;
for if it turns nut thut tho acquisition of
free nitrogen by the land, or what amounts
to tbo same thing, lhe plants growing on it,
can bo economically promoted, the farmer
and forester may havo the control of
sources of real wealth not yet dreamt of."
Thus is science sometimes able greatly to

Annul I mi 1*. Taken Into S'lliloily.
The Satya Mitra, u weekly liuzeratl
newspaper, iu a recent issue publishes an
account from a correspondent at Sholapore
which reuds more like u romance than anything else, A young woman, says the
lor respondent, came to the railway station
at Tudwul, between Sholapore und Bijapore,
witb a child about a year and a half old.
The woman who was bedecked with ornaments of tho value of about six or eight
hundred rupees, applied to the station-
master for a ticket; but the latter would
not issue it on somo pretence or other,
evidently wishing lo detain the woman at
the station. The train which waa duo at
the time having arrived and left, the
woman waa aaked to take her seat in a
room and wait there until the arrival of the
next train. The woman having complied
with hia wishes, the stationmaster accompanied by three or four porters, and
AltHEN    WITH    A   SWORD.
entered the room and aaked her to remove
the ornaments en pain of death, which ahe
readily did. The assailants did not content themselves with the forcible possession
of the ornaments, but theym-i.de proposals
which were stoutly resisted. Ou further
threats being held out, the woman, exercising a little presence of mind, begged to be
allowed to go out for a minute or two, but
on the stationmaster aud bia accomplices
remonstrating that she would endeavor to
escape, the woman promised to leave her
child in their custody as a guarantee of her
good faith. The woman then walked out
of tho room and in an instant shut the door
after her and pu*. up the chain, thus confining the whole party in the room. The men
tried hard to break open the doors, but
without su.-cess. They threatened aud on-
treated in turns the woman to let them out,
hut she declined to do ao, and posted herself at the door. The men then threatened
to
OUT rtRR CHILD IN l-IFX'KH-
and eventually hewed and hacked it with
tlie sword ami shoved it through an opening in the room; but the woman remained
unmoved, and resolutely kept, her pjsitisn
near the door, only remarking that ahe
would rather allow her child to he sacrificed than put herself into tho power of unscrupulous hlackgut-rils. In thc meantime
a goods train came up near the atation, but
could not proceed further as there was no
one to give the signal to the train. Both
the driver and the guard accordingly loft
the train and walked down lo the atation,
where they saw the woman, who narrated
the whole of the circumstances to them.
Several of the townspeople theu alao arrived
at tho scene, and the door lining opened lhe
whole party was taken into custody aud
removed at once to Bijapore.
Ho Nover Told A Lie.
A work mnn in u factot y being cotitiuuall y
asked for tobacco by his shopmatea, and
not curing to tell a Mo, reiorted to tho following stratagem. He carried two pouches,
ami one he culled " the world," which waa
always empty the other " a friend," which
Contained tobacco for bis use. When asked
for tobacco by bis mates, be would reply i
"I havu not any iu 'lhe world,' what I
um smoking   1 got from a 'friend.' "
Onco Too Often.
In u amall Berkshire town there lived a
retired naval officer, who poised Ihe odious habit of asking people nil sorts of inquisitive questions, One day when out for
a -.troll he met an eccentric old character
named Duncan, and the following oolloqUy
look placo I
" Welj, Duncan, you're dreaaed brawly,
to-day ; where are you going t"
".list to the castle, captain," proudly
ruplied Duncan, as he touched his cap by
way of Hululation.
" And what huve you got in thut basket T" further queried the captain.
"Faith, air, I had na the impudence to
ask," cooly returned Duncan,
The Mother's Influence.
'Jeorge Evers, the famous novelist and
Kgyptologiat, aaya of mother's influence :���
"Few I bolieve individually appreciate the
enormous hidden force in the educational
end moral influence exerted upon them by
their mothers. Were a college founded for
the propagation of morality, its professors
would touch only superficially the inner
life of the students. It would be, iu fact,
a superfluous inatitution, for life itself is
is such a achool. We begin here like children, understanding such instruction alone
as appeals to the heart, and cf this every
man's mother, like mine, holds the key.
Comprehending this, a wise mother should
improve every occasion as a stimulus to an
exercise in morality, teaching even by the
glance of her eye, as it appeals to the innate
love of her child ; and thia fundamental instruction will take root as deeply aa though
the pupila weie already older, excluding
superficiary from the fact that she cau
touch the soul to its innermost core. When
one leaves a mother's influence, one is already a moral man or one is not, and of a
hundred who are so, ninety-nine, even
though unconsciously, are indebted to the
mother."
Inartistic, but Very Prevalent.
"This epidemic of moire," said a dressmaker recently, "which is sweeping the
world of dreaa, is much deplored by real
artists in gowns. It suits no one, so far aa
enhancing any good point or toning down
any disadvantage. It is hard, cold, unsympathetic, und has only the richness of weave
to recommend it. Mantles are most unsuitably made of it, as it ia absolutely without
grace in draping the figure, while a moire
jacket makes angles in the moat rounded
and avelte of women. Its only place in
dress is in flat panels or re vers, or deeply
veiled in lace, which aoftens its mirror-like
surface and hides the still effect of ita bristling folda."
Embroldored Sofa-Pillow.
A comfortable aofa-plllow ia made in the
deceptive form of a well-filled work-bag
saya the Toronto Ladies' Journal for June*
A pillow, filled with feathers, about sixteen
inches long and nearly thirteen iuches wide,
ia lirat made. Tho cover ia of gray silk
sixteen inches long and thirteen inches
wide for tbe front, and the back is of red
plush of the same dimensions.
At the top is a double frill of red satin,
four inches wide, and drawn in with handsome satin ribbon. Upon the gray silk
front is a beautifully embroidered bunch of
red poppies done iu different shades of red,
olive-green and black "B, and A." filoselle.
This could be produced in the same color
scheme with gray linen for both back and
front, embroidered in the aame silk, and
will endure any amount of washing.
Hints for the Household.
Tooth powder is an excellent cleanser of
fine filigree jewelry.
Drive ants outof your cupboards by sprinkling pulverized borax on the shelves.
Never wash raisins that are to be used in
sweet dishes. It will inaku the pudding ur
cake heavy,
Clotheapins boiled a few minutes and
quickly dried once or twice a month, lie
come more durable.
Cake, after II becotnea stale, makea an
excellent steamed pudding, eaten with a
sauce or sweet gravy.
After tho juice has beeu squeezed from
lemons, thn peel cun be used for rubbing
brass. Dip tbem in common salt, rub the
brasB thoroughly, then brush wilh dry
balhhrick.
Ink stains on ctothea may be taken out
by washing, first with pure water, next
witb soap -ind water, uud lastly with lemon
juice ; but if old, they must be treated with
oxalic acid.
Very Hi -le, il any, water should be drunk
at meal time ; but if one feels the need of
some liquid, let him take one cup of weak
tea or colfee, as heat aida digestion, while
cold retards it.
To wash red table linen, uae tepid waler
wiih a little powdered borax (borax sete
the color) ; bung to dry in a shady plaoe.
Tbe washing must be done separately and
done quickly with very little soap ; the
rinsing water should huve a very little
starch in il.    Iron when nearly dry.
Quito Safe.
The following is perhaps ihe cleverest
excise foinei'leol of duly on record :
An Irish soldier, placed on guard over a
cannon, was found iu u public-House some
distance of by bis officeri
"How dare you leave your post?" waa
the stern rebuke.
"Ah, but it's no consequence at all, at all,
plu/e your honor," said the man. There's
no two men, yer honor, would lift that
gun between them, much less carry it off.

wouldn't be a match for them, so I came

The Result at Home.
The result in this district is not uncx
peeled, but the majority is gratif)ingly
large, It shows thai the people appreciate the services of their able and intUi-
encial representative, nnd that they are
not hostile to the Dunsmuir interest
which ts so large a factor in their pros-
petit y. Through the election of Mr.
Hunter, no interest will suffer but all be
equally cared for ;ind protected. Those
who voted against him though disappointed, doubtless at the moment, are
aheady beginning to fuel thai the election
It ad resulted for llie best He will prove we
aie sure the representative of the entire
(listricintnd not simply ofa party, doing all
he can to piomote the general interests
and being just lo all. In view of this let
us all rejoice and join in the swelling
pean of triumph at (he verdict of the people which does honor to Comox.
The Government Sustained.
We go to prc.iS on lhe fourth or edi-
torial pp.gc much earlier ihan on the first.
At this writing however, we have received niouj-h returns to show that the Government is safe, and as considerable of
tin; Mainland is yet lo hear from it is pro
'liable it will have a working majority.
The Government has carried the eniire

Opposition were completely swamped, not
one saving his deposit. Vancouver and
New Westminster go solid Opposition as
was expected. In Cariboo two Government members arc returned.
THE DYKE MODEL.
Mr. Iltij-h Giant of Union, who has
had ample experience in such matters
east has made n model of a section nf
dyke, contatnng the sluice nr flood gales,
which would certainly if followed, make
,- substantial dyke. The model i, sup-
posed lo be a section 40 feel long, 50 It
underneath, and havin*; n 30 font road
way ou lop, and a hand rail al (he sides
for protection The bottom is bmli oi
round timbers up toilu- sluice gnies,or up
to low water mark. This brings the level
ing timbers from a foot m 15 inches a
hove low waicr. Krom ihe bottom ol the
siiiice gales to the level ol tin- rondwny,
it is built up of equated timber, Tlie
walls ofthe sluice gateB are built ofsquai
cd limber u inches thick. The model
show*, the two sluice gate*, a bv d ft, ami
of two style*, one being with one hinge
and the other of two hingOi. On the
fiber side of lhe section is supposed to
be spiles about io feet apart and driven
firmly into the mud, fastened securely to
thc wall umber all the way up; also spiled in front for strength, and filled inside
solid with e&rth and gravel. All the front
i*. to be of squared timber, and all of the
dyke to be like the section of the model,
except the sluice ��aics. This may be
siudicil witb profit by those interested in
It dyke lo take the place of the Long

Tho peoplo in early days largely depended upon horseback riding for long
distance travel as well aa for short trips:
hence they encouraged breeds of horses
which could carry llieir burdens with
easti, both to themselves nmi the rider.
The Baddlera of that early period were
not tho stylish and finished steppers of
this. The best horses for thu purpose
were brought from Canada, whoro the
pace or ambluiK gait had been most encouraged, while Virginia and the south
Atlantic states bad given more attention
to the race burse. The Canadians were
Baid to bo a cross of the early French
Btock with tho sullious obtained from
New York and New England, They
combined the hardiness and perhaps the
gaits of tlie former with the butter sizo
of the latter.
Wheu Kentucky waB growing into
statehood, away buck in the thirties, two
classes of horses mainly were imported
Into her territory to grow up and fatten
on the Btieciileiit blue grass. Tbey were
the thoroughbred and half blood from
Virginia and now and then a pacer from
Canada. Naturally tliese wero crossed,
because many people did not caro to
keep up tbe breeding of race horses, and
tbo cross produced a moro useful animal,
particularly for saddle purposes.
Thu tasto for a real saddle horse is vitiated some these days by a class of
"professors" from England and Germany, who conduct riding schools iu
eastern cities. They know nothing of
the delight of horseback riding proper,
Tliey have perhaps nover mounted a saddle horse of thu western type and therefore make the most of what they know
about the saddle horse. There is another
reason for their adoption of tho high
trolling horse iu their schools.
Many of llie eastern riders are driven
to horseback os a relief trom the ills of
counting hoilSCS. Heneo they expect to
lind it in the high Stepping trot, They
nre misguided and will find in the end
that the ease of body ami mind given by
a morning ride OO a called middle horse
will prove more luin filial than the vio-
tent jolting tbey get on tho back of the
school horse, Sliil il is not the province
of western horsemen to dlotttte to their
patrons. Our saddle horses are capablo
of taking on ihu trot if need bu, uml
tbey will be bo educated whilu the craze
lasts, but here's hoping that it won't be
long. Mounting tbu eastern hackneys
for a sad.lh- horse is liku getting out of a
linu buggy aud taking an ux cart,���Thu

What is an Insurance Sale ?
So many people ask the question.   We shall explain:	
After tne late disasterous fire in Nanaimo the Insurance Companies cancelled a large number of policies in some blocks. We
have just --10,000.00 to place jusl at present inany other Company.
Now we cannot afford lo carry over laige stock without sufficient insurance Consequently we are compa led to unload. To do
this quickly we have pet the prices lower on evorything in our Immense stock���than Dry Goods have ever been bought before���less
than cost in nearly every in tance. See price lists which we have,
sent out.
