About 6,45 Monday morning the En
glish Church bell rang out its message of
fire. Soon the Presbyterian bell rang
out the warning in fiercer tones. Smoke
was seen issuing from McDowell's house

in from all directions, some of the more
thoughtful ones bringing buckets of water
A force pump with hose atlachment at
the next door did good service. McGregor, Sharp and others mounted the
roof and rapidly tore oft' the shingles.
M. Blnre was most active. Mr. A. Grant
acted as captain. Where was Mateer?
was asked, but he may hive had good
reason fnr his absence. The fire w.is
soon put out and every one breathed
easier. It was a narrow escape. It is
plain that if a fire is not put out quickly,
we have not tha means to stop it.

. As a rule farmers are not good
mechanics. The better the conditions
In which tools are kept, the less effort will be required on the part of
teams, ami of workmen, too; yet
farmers will use their implements a
whole year without sharpening tbem.
No othor mechanic would do this.
The soil, the seed and the workman ure about equally responsible for
a gooil crop, but eucli one of these
must lie ut Its best lo get full advantage of the others. It tlie sower,
the seed or the soli is more tluiu proportionately deficient, more tttun Its
own proportion of tlie crop is likely
to fall short.
Much of the flux straw from u mil*
lion of American acres ls wasted or
burned, while millions of dollars'
worth of fabrics ure Imported. With
proper cultivation uml due care of
the fiber the whole home demand
could be supplied. Let us hope that
some day the great leakage through
waste of oue kind aiul another will
como to au end.
Thousands of tons ul' vegetable rubbish are annually wasted becuuse
farmers generally do uot appreciate
the value of a mulch. The very meaning of the word seems uot to be understood. The tops of plants aud
trees want air and sunlight, but the
roots need shade and moisture.
There would be fewer unprofitable
crops, and less money wasted on
atock, if men knew Just what tliey
were doing. It would uot require
much extra lubor to keep an account
with each field, with eucli herd, with
each orchard, the poultry or the
atable. It Is a very simple matter
to set down all the money received
or expended. Do not men care, or is
It heedlessness?
It is thought that most Insects are
guided to their favorite lood by tlieir
sense of smell, and that it some
strongly odorous substance obscures
the natural odor they are thrown off
the scent. For this reason a coal oil
emulsion sprinkled over the vines will
drive the marauders away; nnd eveu
water in which onions have been
boiled  will do the same.
Ice is a commodity which represents vulue and should uot lie wasted.
It Is better to wrap it lu woolen
than In cotton, for the former is a
poorer conductor; but paper Is better
than either, and neither dues it

but it pays wheu the crop comes to

There arc many gentle ruin falls.
during the summer, and there ls no

Although Georgia is a cotton State,
and not given largely to grain growing, the crop of corn usually runs up
to between 30 and 40 million bushels. This ls a few millions more than

If we wish tu feed animals simply
to increase the size uf the manure
beup it ls cheaper to feed them fodder and no food, but If we ure feeding the cows for milk, the swine for
good pork, the steers for heavy
weight beef, we must pay mure attention to neurlshmcnt. Still, the
coarse food is at all times necessary
to healthful digestion, as an adlunct.
There ls a sweeter flavor to pork
from a clean pen, and tlie animals
thus raised show a smaller lier-
���centnge of death and loss than do
those raised after the old fashioned,
dirty hictliud. It lust as much applies

Nearly all the wools used by American Carpet manufacturers come Irom

Raising scrub horses brings many

A noted dairyman tells bow be gained a quart of milk a day to each cow

His explanation was that feeding the
meal when the atomach was empty,
und all the hay and water afterward,
tbe meal was not so well digested as
when the procedure waa reversed.

Early tomatoes rut becauso there is
deficiency of mineral fertility in the
soil; tlieir abundance of seeds requires
a good deal of potash to perfect them.
Of tlie more common applications
nothing can be more useful than wood
ashes. Ifthe first fruit Is plucked off,
usually that which is later will be free
trom rot.
Besides preventing direct damage
from insects and bugs, it is also claimed that spraying fruit trees will cause
the fruit to ripen earlier, for the reason tliat tbe leaves are not killed, Thc
foliage remaining green nnd healthy,
materially assists the development of
the fruit.
While 230 species of plants are cultivated for food, tlie United States,
unly, holds within her borders scores
uf wild species worthy of culture and
improvement. Prejudice is a barrier.
Some scientists even go so far as to
say tliat the unknown kitchen vegetables exceed the known.
In some of the southern European
countries the traveller finds along the
roadways fruit trees, from which he is
allowed to pluck at will. What Is left,
the adjoining farmer gathers and markets. It would be well if such a custom were more common. Instead of,
increasing the number of tramps and
pilferers, it would lessen their depredations.   *

What a Windsor Resident of 70
Years of Age. Says,
Mr. .lame*. Slierwood, Of Windsor,
Out., lias attained tlie ripe old age of
70 years. A few yeurs ago he suffered
from an attack of paralysis, and a
second attack came on hlui twelve
montlis ago. The result of this trouble was to seriously derange his digestive organs, and complicated nervous
troubles followed. He obtained from
Labelle & Co., of 'Windsor, a bottle of
South American Nervine. It had an'
immediate effect on tlie stomach trouble, and on the nerves, besides
strengthening * the heart's action,
which had become weak. He suyu:

Only those who have been alfllcted
with rheumatism- can understand or
appreciate fully tbe agony endured by
Its victims.   Their days are days of
paiu, and their nights are nigbta ol
sleepless misery.    And when one of
those who  have    suffered    thus    Is
released from the thraldom of pain,
bow eager tbey are    to let    their
fellow-sufferers know ot    tbe means
by which tbey secured renewed health
and happiness.    Ia such oases people
who are of a    retiring   disposition,
aud  wbo  Uuve au aversion to anything that savors ol notoriety cult
aside tbeir personal feeling In    tbe
matter, and freely give    their    experience    tor    tbe good it may   do
others.    Such a oue    Is Mrs. Bradford, wife of   Mr. John Bradford, a
much respected    farmer    wbo    Uvea
near Bishop's Mills, ln tbe adjoining
county    of    Grenvllle.      She    says:
" Early last autumn I    was   seized
with pains in my  knees and limbs.
At first tbey were but   slight, but
gradually Increased iu severity until
it  was with the greatest difficulty
I could move about.    Liniments usually tried ln such    cases were   resorted to without the least benell-
Clal effect.   On tbe contrary, I was
continually growing worse, and    at
last I reached    a    stage   where, If
seated hi a chair, it was almost Impossible for me to arise, and wben
on my teet my limbs were so still
that It caused me tbe most excruciating pain to walk.   At this Juncture
a neighbor who had benefited through
tlie use of Dr. Wllliums' Pink Pills
advised me to    give    tbem a thorough trial, and, glad to   grasp   at
any means which promised relief, I
procured a supply ol Pink Pills and
began their use.   By the time I had
used three boxes    there was a decided improvement, aod I could walk
with less stillness and less pain than
formerly.    I continued    taking   tbe
Pink Fills until I had used another
six boxes, when I Ielt myself as well
as ever, and    feel    firmly convinced
that those who will give this wonder-working medicine   a   fair   trial
can soon free themselves    from the
thraldom ol rheumatism.   I can also
say that It was not alone ln   this
respect that I found the Pink Pilla
beneficial. I bad been muoh toubled
with a tired and languid feeling and
suffered very much with aick' headache, whioh I believe were caused* by
stomach    troubles.    All   these   disagreeable symptoms disappeared under tbe   treatment   of    Fink Pills,
and I have had no return of    the
trouble.    Although I    am now well
up ln years I am enjoying the best
ol health, and I am willing that my
testimonial shall    be published    for
tbe good it may being some other
Dr. Williams' Fink Pills strike at
tbe root ol the disease, driving it
trom tbe system and restoring the
patient to health and strength. In
cases of paralysis, spinal troubles, locomotor ataxia, sciatica, rheumatism, erysipelas, scrofulous troubles,
etc., these are superior to nil other
treatment. They are also a specific tor the troubles which make the
lives ol ao many women a burden,
and speedily restore the rich glow of
health to sallow cheeks. Men broken
down by overwork, worry or excess,
will find ln Pink Pills a certain cure.

that tbo bagpipe was the ancestral

An Expert Stenographer.
After only two months' tuition by
Mr. Kelly, ot Kelly's Business College
Frescott, Ont., Miss Bella O'Conner
becomes an expert stenographer. Mr.
Kelly' invited criticism on the merits
of his mailing system which the young
lady has pursued, and placed Miss

Miss O'Conner re-examined by Messrs.
P. II. McMonagle, expert stenographer;
J. K. Dowsley, barrister and attorney,
and J. B. White, clerk of the Division

Wben asked on to whether Miss
O'Conner was capable of holding a

Some Figures That   Have   a   Ra'her
Startling Significance.
One does not realize the enormous
amount of money spent by the inhabitants of Great Britain ln sport until
after reading Mr. J. Mason's (acts and
figures on this subject in the Muy
number of Pearson's Magazine. Concerning racing, he arrives ut tlie following amounts annually spent: Racecourses-first class. ��80,000; stakes-
first class, ��318,000 ; horses racing
and training ��*l,770,0OO; minor meetings, ��1,500,000; breeding establishments, ��.'1,180,000 ; expenses of spectators, etc., ��1,000,000 ; making u
total cost of ��10,818,000. It may be
argued, with some force, that, as the
stakes go back into tlie pockets of
racehorse owners, tliey should be deducted from tiie cost; but it sliould
be borne in mind that tn a, greut extent, the subscribers of funds for these
stakes are the owners themselves.
Allowing a little off, however, on.
tills liend, we are safe ia nssuimuir
thnt not less than ��10,750,000 ls
spent every year ou horse-racing lu
this country.
Hunting comes next, and In connection witli this sport more than nine
millions sterling ls spent annually,
made up as follows: Compensation
to farmers is a tangible Item which
will run up to at least ��50,000 ; and if
we add another ��50,000 us a special
expenditure ln the shape of rentals
of hunting quarters, we have about
exhausted the bill. Hounds, ��100,-
000; masters studs, ��325,000; subscribers' studs, ��7,760,000; equipments, ��750,000; compensations, ��50,-
000 ; hunting quarters, ��50,000; total
cost of hunting. ��9,04-1,000.
In regard to shooting, there are several bases of calculation. According to
Mulhall, in an average season, of deer,
pheasants, grouse, partridges, hares
and rabbits, tliere are slain by the
gun some thirty-two millions ln the
United Kingdom. If we add another
five millions for other game, wildfowl
and pigeons (including those killed In
shooting matches), and put the market value all rotufl at ls. 6il. a head,
we get the goodly figure of ��2,775,000.
But this ls not .enough. It ls notorious tliat deer, grouse and pheasants,
at nny rate, cost far moro than their
market value, and tlie average sportsman who can shoot rabbits at no
more than ls. 6d. a head Is lucky. The
fancy rents paid for deer forests,
grouse moors and shooting quarters
may be moderately estimated at another million and a half. We now
have: Game jireserving, ��4,000,000;
personal expenses of sportsmen, ��'-',-
700,000; licenses, etc., ��275,000; spec-
Inl rents, e*tc., ��1,500,000; total, ��8,-
475,000. We must, however, in fairness, deduct some set-off for the value
of the game, etc., killed; and taking
that at the figure already given, we
liavo, as the net cost of shooting,
As regards fishing, the following
amounts are spent: Ten thousand anglers spending in rents, or subscriptions, licenses, tackle, travelling, lodging, etc., an average of ��30 per
annum, ��300,000; 100,00(1 uvernging
��15 per annum, ��1,500,000; 300,000
averaging ��5 per annum, ��1,500,0000;
400,000 -averaging ��1 per annum,
��400,000. Total spent ou angling by
800,000 anglers, ��8,700,000. Against
this the value of the fish killed Is a
very problematical figure; but, put it
at ��200,000, and say that angling
costs, net, ��3,500,000 a year.
At least 000,000 cricketers of nil
grades und classes incur a personal expenditure clearly incidental to the
gamo to the average amount of ��3
per annum, or ��1,500,000 ; and at
least 3,000,000 of spectators of
matches average our shilling per head
of expenditure heyond admission fees,
or ��150,000. tunes orlcket contrlli-
utcs to our total some ��2,085,000.
Football is responsible for ��1,750,000.
Bearing In mind tiio necessity lor
somo discrimination between what
mny lie fairly termed sport and thnt
which ls ordinary rccroatlon, and applying tlio snmo broad principles, we
arrive nt ths following additional
figures: Coursing, ��400 000; cycling,
��1,200.000 ; polo, ��250,000 : yachting;
��1,000,000 ; boating, ��500,000 ; BWlm-
mlng, ��200,000; golf, ��1,000,000;
kockey, bowls, quoits, etc., ��100'000;
athletics, ��800,000 ; total. ��6,150:000,
In this woy we bring up the total
cost of British sport to a total ol over
��38,000,000 per annum, or about ��1
per hear' of the whole population.

Beauties of the Climate Unsurpassed
Elsewhere In the World.
Nowhere on earth are there more
perfect days and nights than here. In
the lovely land of the Illy and the
rose. For weeks past the atmosphere
has held un ambrosial mellowness,
with the thermometer ranging from
65 to 76 degrees all day. Almoet every
night ls as perfect as tha enthusiast's
pen or the artist's pencil could paint It.
And tliis ls the land of the onion.
To the Inexperienced, whose sensitive
and delicate noetrils have never met
the powerful odor of a thousand boxes
of onions, with mere bars across tbe
top to afford air for this article ol
commerce, resting npon the wharf
waiting for the next steamer for New
York, the smell of 5,000 boxes or
crates filled witb onions on board one
steamer cannot be well and properly
described, and It can only be appreciated by tlie passenger, whose entire
wardrobe must bear the clinging perfume after leaving the ship for weeks
to come and mark bim for an onion
dealer. Yet there are few tilings
earthly as delicious as the Bermuda
onion. This ia the land of the lily, but
the onion is upon its coat of arms.
But It ls not alone of the onion that
Bermudans are proud. Upon one of
this cluster of Islands is the largest
floating dry dock ta the world. It
was built in England, and brought here
from over the sea. This largest floating dry dock of the world Is on Ireland
Island, and was landed here In July,
1869, after a passage of thirty-five
days from the Downs. The dock basin
Is fifty-two feet below low-water
liark, 1,200,000 cubic feet of sand and
coral rock having been dredged up by
the steam dredge. It is secured in Its
position by three iron girders 112 feet
long, fitted so as to rise and fall with
the dock. Tbe dimensions of this Immense strncture are: Length over all,
381 feet; length over all between
caissons, 330 feet; breadth over all,
128.9 feet; breadth, Inside wall, 84
feet; depth over all, 70 feet; total
weight, 8,340 tons. The dock, when
full, contains 87,000 tons of water.
The means of communication between some of the larger lslunds is
by causeways and bridges, and these,
as well as some of tbe remarkably
level roads, hewn out of the coral
rock, sometimes to a depth* of 200
feet, were made by convicts. But
there are hundreds of smaller Islands,
only large enough to contain one
residence and land sufficient to support one family of Illy or onion, or,
perhaps, potato raisers. But tbere
are others besides farmers, who live
now, as they hare lived and tlielr lathers and grandfathers before them,
on these small Isles ol the sea, as Is
evidenced by the antiquity of the
structures and the furniture therein.
For two years past a powerful
steam dredge has been employed ln
the harbor of Hamilton In digging
and blasting out two channels for tbe
better navigation of steamers and
large galling vessels approaching tills
port. The work is completed; the
powerful dredger has departed for the
coast of Mexico to engage ln work
there. There ls now a clear channel
out from Hamilton dock, and another
to enable vessels to reach the great
dock at Ireland Island. But the work
is still Incomplete, as will be found
out ln the future, for the Islands are
only approachable now by vessels
drawing no more than twenty feet of
water at high tide. Besides this fact,
tbe Inadequacy of the work may be
appreciated irom the fact that at low
tide only one steamer may ride at anchor In the approach to tbe channel,
the work being incomplete there, and
a second steamer ol twenty teet
draught must stand on and off the
shore, waiting for the rise of the tide.

oldest city In Bermuda, the least Bald

Notu itflistnnding the harness-like
aspect ol the suspender garter, It is
now mude attractive. There are two
kinds ol stocking supporters. One
fastens around the waist with a satlu
belt, very narrow iu Iront aud behind and coming well down over the
hips, where the elastics are attached. Oue piece ol elastic comes half
way down to tho knee, und there
another piece is attached, with u
buckle, so us to form two supports
for tho stocking. And here 8 whero
a woman's handsome buckles from her
once beloved round garters comes In.
She hns one attached on ouch suspender whero the two pieces ol elastic
are joined, and they allow the elastic to lie shortened or lengthened: at
will. The stocking Is caught in handsome hooks or held lu pluce by means
ol a gold or silver button und loop.
Thu other style is more populur with
stout women. Tlie suspenders are
not fastened together by means of
the belt, hut each Is attached to the
side ol the corset with a small gold
or silver safety pin. Otherwise tlio}'
urn like tho ones just dmcrllwl.
Since the demand Inr handsome suspender garters hus Increased rapldl.v
many beautiful designs have been
brought out In gold and sliver. Tho
prices vary Irom $3 to $100 ui pair.
I'Minify these handsome buckles uro
mounted on plain narrow silk elastic,
because they are supposed to make a
Imttcr show that way. Most womcrt
do not think so, however, and they no
sooner get hold ot a pair before thoy
have thn plain elastic covered with
silk, satin ribbon or (net), nnd decorated with bows ol very narrow ribbon.                ,

The Courts Have Held That a Ring Implies a Contract.
In Verino*?* a young maa - .t u
young worn,.ii to recover h*. *;u?age*
ment ring, she having rei used to I't-.lfll
its Implications. The Sujireme Court
decided that the engagement ring wns
conditional. If the young womnn refused t- comply with the conditions
she must return the ring. The jien-
uity of defying the court Is not
stilted, but every woman sliould understand that in keeping the ring of a
broken engagement, even aa a scalp on
her chatelaine, she may be nabbed hy
the officers of the law.,
A Massachusetts ease shows the
attitude of the law with referenco to
tlie Imponderable transfers of love anil
affection. In this ease a man offered
to transfer his property to a woman
If she would engage herself to him.
This she did, lint before the deeds
were put in shape lie djeil, and the
womnn brought suit to recover tlie
promised property. The lawyers for
the heirs contended that the woman
had given nothing in return. The
court, however, decided thnt the promise of tiie woman wus a consideration, und she won the suit.
The question of consideration comes
up in another suit. * In this case a
married man offered to give his wife
$1 for every kiss Bhe gave him. The
fulfilment of the liurgain she scrupulously claimed. Years afterward the
mun failed In business, whereupon tbe
wife brought him the (iroceeds of her
kisses, dollar for dollar. She had
saved them. His creditors claimed tlie
money. Suit was brought, tliey contending that the transfer was illegal,
the woman having given nothing In
return, the right to kiss the wife
being within tlie rights of a married
man. Tlie jirecedent for tills view le
found in 142 Pennsylvania.
The status of the fiancee lias recently come up in Texas. *A railroad
mnn had his life Insured for the benefit of his betrothed. He died from
Injuries in a wreck. His .family enjoined the insurance company from
paying the money. In 52 Missouri the
Supreme Court has decided that such
insurance Is Invalid. The family got
the money.
The First Right She Expects is to be
Treated Better Than Anybody Else.
Woman's riglitsl Why. the very
first right we expect is to be treated
better than anybody else���better
than men treat each other as a
body, and better by the Individual
man than lie treats all other women. I abominate the Idea of equality and to be mentally slapped on
the shoulder and told I am " a good
fellow." I s'hrink from tlie Idea of
Independence and cold, proud isolation with my emancipated sister-women, who struggle Into their own
coats unassisted, and get red ln tiie
face putting on tlielr own skates,
and bang on to a strap in the street
car in tiie proud consciousness that
tliey are independent and the equal
of men. I never worry myself when
a man ts on his knees in front of me
putting on my overshoes, as to whether he considers ine ills equal politically or not. It Is sufficient satisfaction for me to see him there. If
he hadn't wanted to save me the
trouble I suppose he wouldn't have
offered. He may even think I am
not strong enough for such an arduous duty. Tliat wouldn't hurt my
feelings either. I have an Idea that
lie likes it better to think tliat I cannot do anything troublesome for myself than to believe that I could get
along perfectly without him. In
fact���here's heresy for you, oh, ye
emancipated���I do not In the least
mind being dependent on men���provided the men are nice enough. Let
them give us all the so-called
rights they want to. I shall never
get over wanting to get behind some
man If I see a cow. Let them give

nt least three men to go wtth me to

The Largest One ln the World ls Now in
the British Museum.
The Chinese deportment ol the British Museum library contains, says a
writer ln Cassell's World of Wonders,
a single work which occupies no lewer
than 5,020 volumes. Tlite wonderful
production of the Chinese press was
purchased a few years ago lor .$6,000
and ts one of only a small number of
copies now In existence. It is an encyclopedia ol the literature of China,
covering a period of twenty-eight
centurlus���from 1000 1!. C. to 1700
A. D.
It owes its origin to tho literary
proclivities of tlie Emperor Kang-he,
who rolgncd from 16U2 to 1722. In the
course of hia studies of the ancient
literature of his country, Kang-he ills-
covered thnt extensive corruptions
hud been allowed to creep into modern editions, and he conceived the Idea
ol having tho text of tho originals reproduced, and preserved ta an authoritative form. This wub a mighty conception, truly, and ln Its execution It
remains unique down to the present
time. For tbe purpose of carrying
out tho work Kang-he appointed a
commission of learanl men to select
the writings to be reproduced and
employed the Jesuit missionaries to
cast copper types with whicli to execute the printing.
The commission was occupied for
forty years In Its great task. Belore
the work was completed Knng-he
died, but he had provided that his successor should eee the book completed,
and he faithfully carried out his trust.
The book Is arranged ln six divisions,
each dealing with a particular branch
of knowledge. The divisions are thus
designated: First, writings relating
to the heavens; second, writings relating to the earth; third, writings
relating to mankind ; fourth, writings
relating to Inanimate nature; fifth,
writings relating to philosophy: sixth,
writings relating to political economy.
My grandpa is a funny man.
He's Scotch as lie can be.
I tries to teach him all I  can,
But he  enn't talk like me.
I ve told him forty fousnnd times.
But tnin't n bit of use;
He always Bays a man's a " mon '
Au'   calls a  house u "hoose."
He plays with-me most euy day.
And rides me ou his knee;
He took me to ft picnic once
Aud dressed up just like me.
He snys I  uiu u " bonnie bairn.'
And kisses me, and when
I  asks him why can't he talk right.
He Says, " i dinna ken."    i
But me an   him huve lots o   lun,
Hes such u fuuuy man.
I dunce for him und brush his hair
And loves him nil I can.
I cuils him Anjrew Itliut's his name),
Aud hu says I can't talk,
And then he   puts my plaidle on
And takes me for a walk.
I tells hlin forty fnusand times.
But tain't a bit of use;
Ho alwaya says a man s a " mon,'
An   culls a house a " hoose.'
Don't neglect tbe forget-me-nots Id
your flower gardens. Sow soms seed
In August and you will have early
blossoms next spring.
The legend of the forgget-me-not 1��
one of the prettiest ot those connected with flowers. It Is to the effect
that two lovers were walking along
a river In Germany. He waa a knight
in armor and she a willful girl. Seeing some flowers across the stream
sho asked hsr lover to get them for
her. He, quick to obey her slightest
wish, sprang into the river, clambered up the bank, picked tbe blossoms and was returning, wben be
was caught hopelessly In the current
and drowned belore her eyes. Just as
he was sinking he flung the flowers
toward her and cried, " Forget-me-
Some of the most beautiful forget-
me-nots ever seen were on the field
of Waterloo. There seemed a special
pathos about those blossoms, which
sprang from the dust ol so many
lovers, the pride of three nations.
(And now the iconoclast claims that
Mary's lamb really belonged to Lucy!
If it's true that Mary's lamb
Was the lamb of Lucy.
P'raps the goose that saved old Home
Was a Grecian goosey;
P'raps the apple shot by Tell
Was a ripe cucumber;
P'raps the ark that Noah sailed
Wasn't made of lumber;
P'rapa the hatchet used by George
Was a butcher's cleaver;
P'raps the noble Wlnkelreld
Was a base deceiver;
P'raps the fiddle Nero played
Was a hurdygurdy;
P'raps the bird tbat fed Ellsb
Was some otber blrdy;
P'raps the deck the boy stood on
Never was ln danger;
P'raps the wolf ate Kidinghood
S'poslng ber a stranger.
P'raps���but why extend tbe line?
Is there any goosie
B'lieves that Mary's faithful lamb
Ever followed Lucy ?
The boy who chafes under rules and
discipline, longing to be free, should be
reminded of the obligations ot the
social state and admonished to prolong as much as possible the freedom
and enjoyments of youth. For that
which is regarded as a measure of Independence must be paid for. The
youth who ls wilful and determines to
break from author.ty soon learns that
he has broken with a supporter as
well as a ruler. If he would have his
own way, he must support himself,
and ln doing so he puts himself under
Hie rule of new taskmasters. Struggle
as we may we cannot achieve complete Independence, end the wisest
tiling to do Is to cheerfully acknowledge the fact and make the best of
our situation. This oan be done by
curbing our appetites and desires so
that we shall want only those things
that may be attainable through reasonable effort. We should also respect
authority as a necessary exercise of
power, and cheerfully make our share
of the mutual sacrifices which social
conditions require to be made. Thus
we may achieve, If not Independence,
such harmonious relations with our
fellowiueu as will give us as large a
measure of freedom as can be accorded
to one member ol a community, bound
to all the other members Iiy Innumer-
ubte ties.
My little son, when between three
and four years old, was one day playing with a Ilttlo family of white
China rabbits which had lately been
given to him. I was sitting in the
room, not taking much notice of him
until I heard him telling the rabbits,
" Say your prayers." lie repeated
those ho said himself, and ended up
with " Arabblts," evidently considering tliat tho correct ending for their
s|iecies, as "Amen" was for his own.
A nurse tells this Btory of a patient,
a seven-year-old boy, of very poor
parents. I was putting him to bed
above the room where the matron
was pluylng a hymn. He remarked
that he liked the harmonium better
than the piano, and was keeping time
with liis foot. "ThereI Now they
are going to sing the dog's holiday."
"Sing what?" "The dog's holiday .'r "Wbo told you that, Abel7"
"Oh, that Is what the clergyman
always saye In church: ' Now, we
will slug tlie dog's holiday.'"
This Is tlio epitaph of Alpha White,

Speaking not as a partisan, but as a
British Columbam, wc are heartly glad
that this Province is no longer to be represented bv a united government delegation. We are at last what is knonn as
a doubtful Province and ma) reasonably
hope to receive some recognition.
Now thai a start has been marie in
protecting the town against loss by flic,
let there be no fullering. Every good,
available man should join thc liook and
Ladder Company, uniil the captain says
"Hold, enough." Mr. Dunsmuir will be
up, it is expec'.eJ next week. Tlie com
mittee should call on him, and lay thc
matter before him, as he is the most
deeply interested. As soon as matters
are in shape to justify, an appeal sliould
be made to the insurance companies.
We should not let the glass grow under
our feet until we are provided with tlie
means to put out a lire,
Hembers Elected.
There were elected in Manitoba three
Conservatives, three Liberals, and one
McCai'ihyile. British Columbia two
Conservatives and four Liberals. Prince
Edwards Island two Conservatives and
three Liberals. Ontario forty-three Con
servativcs, forty-lour Liberals, three
McCarlhyilcs and two Patrons. Quebec
eighteen Conservatives and forty-seven
Liberals. Nov.i Scotia len Conservatives and ten Liberals, New Brunswick

Brief Review.
The smoke ol the political contest has
cleared away, and it is now plain io sec
in the extended line, leading across thc
continent, where ihe advantage lay. In
British Columbia the Liberals have won
four seats, although in two of the districts
carried by them, ths Conservative vote
was the largest. They were thrown away
by bringing out a second candidate, thus
dividing the vote. The Patrons returned
four members. These were balanced by
four McCarthyites. The total number of
Liberals returned is 118, while the Con*
scrvative members count up 87, giving
the Liberals a majority of 31. Putting
Quebec aside the returns show 71
Conservatives, and 69 Liberals. The
Conservative party found its Waterloo,
therefore, in Catholic Quebec, notwithstanding its leaders had done evervthing
possible to hold it. Outside of Quebec,
the Dennnion is pretty evenly devided
in politics, with a slight advantage on
the part of lhe Conservatives. Quebec
was a surprise, but not much more than
Manitoba. Beyond electing Hugh John
there was little hope for the Conservatives. Around the Manitoba School
Question the battle was fought, and it
raged from British Columbia to New
Brunswick. And now we learn tha'
Manitoba elected three Conservatives,
three Liberals and one McCarthyite! It
didn't cut much of a figure there. It
served howcier for campaign thunder
else where.

That we cannot, or will not, profit by
the experience of others, is daily
A small boy, a few days ago, was attempting the jump from the second story
of Mr. Willard's new building. 1
hastened out, and told him of a boy, who
had made a similar leap, and had broken
an arm. A short time after, hearing
wails I weni to the front door, to set the
young doubter, being led away by his
father, and am informed he made the ton
alluring jump, and falling on a plank,
which had a nail protruding, it ran
through his hand. This led me lo thinking ol the late political outcome and the
opinion, expressed that (.'anada is begin*

Tlie hall was most tastefully decked

There was a short musical programme.
A song by Mr. Cox���"The dear home-
laid"*���was well given. Miss Rushworth
���a general favorite��� followed. Dr.
Westwood surprised most of his hearers,
as a violinist of ne mean ability. His
selection���"I'he Serenade of the Angels"���was a beautiful one. Mrs. McKim as an accompanist, had not the opportunity to display her acknowledged
brilliancy as a pianist,
On Thursday, thc dance given by tho
young gentlemen, in honor of Mr. Watkin, who is leaving Union, was a very
pleasant affair, notwithstanding the intense heat. Dancing commenced about
ten, at twelve a splended lunch was
served, after which dancing was resumed
and continued until two a tn.
Mr. and Mrs. Arri.i, who left  for  the
east on Friday, took the  opportunity  ol
bidding their many friends assembled at
the dance, a final   good bye.   They will
be missed by a large circle   whose  best
wishes go with ihem.

Misses Powell and Nickerson have left
for the summer vacation. 1 am confident

mourned for by "Somebody" just a little
more than others.

Loans Negotiated BME-HARE MURDERS,
How "Daft Jamie's Case" Led to
Their Exposure,
In those latter dayB, when the century is rapidly nearing its close, It Is
something to lmve shaken a hand that
was once clutched and in lending to
the human Bhuinbles ol tho West Port
murderers in Edinburgh. Tliat was my
experience u lew mouths ago. An aged
and learned gentleman named Fellden,
revisiting our city, where lie had spent
his boyhood, fell ln my wuy, nnd in
course of a conversation suddenly
turning to me, he said, " Uo you know
tliat when a boy my lite was saved
by "Daft Jamie?'" He went on to
tell me that sixty-eight yeara ago, ln
1828, when on liis way to school, be
was trapped by Hare's wife, and was
on bis wuy to Tanner's Close when
espied by "Datt Jamie" Wilson, who
bad wit enough to suve tlie unwary
Tlie gentleman described bow Jamie
came up to tbem and pulled liim from
tbe grasp of tlie   widow Log.   alias
Mrs. Hare, and   thus   without doubt
saved bis life.    The first body,   tbe
ready sale of which tempted the pair
uf ruffians to begin business as wholesale murderers, leli into their  hands
about the end of 1837, and early  in
tbe spring of 1828 tbe first murder of
the poor drunken iiuwker woman from
Uilmerton wus perpetrated* According
to Burke's official confession, tlie inur-
<ler of Dalt Jamie, wlio was the fourteenth victim, took place near the end
of September.     The  rescue of young
Fellden wus iu the   summer of  tliat
year.  Is it unlikely that Hare's wile
disappointed of her prey, stored up her
desire   for   vengeance against   young
Feilden's   witless   rescuer,    und   that
this statement of Mr. Feiiden's should
throw a new light on the fate of tbe
inoffensive   simpleton   James Wilson,
und furnish u prime    reason for   his
being decoyed uy Hare's wife to  the
murder    Uen'.'   It   is   luterestiug    to
speculate ou    what   was   passing   in
the mind of tlie poor hall-wltteu lad
when lie baffled the she Jackal in her
effort to lure the school-boy to Tanner's Close.   Of the trade In murder
so silently carried on he eould not
have even a glimmer of suspicion, yet
lie Jtnew intuitively    that    the bag
could have hod none liiit evil intent.
Can it be doubted that this act of
Jamie Wilson Inflamed the passions of
the woman, and that sbe mode a vow
to have his life?   Jamie was so well
known throughout tbe city that lie
would have been at onco missed. Yet
in revenge sbe risked all, and    the
poor " natural" was led to his doom.
That Hare's wile was well   fitted
for her  horrible work  is shown by
the words of tlie great Henry Cock-
burn at the trial.    Speaking ln his
most       eloquent     tones     of      her
' revolting appearance," be said: " I

I have sometimes wondered bow
many ol our citizens ever took the
trouble to scan the cast ol Burke's
head so long exhibited in our Phrenological Museum, but now under
charge of rrotessor Turner ol the
University of Edinburgh. The calm,
stolid look ot tbe bullet-headed brute
creates tbe Impression that In life
there was a total absence ol consciousness betwixt right ond wrong.
The murderer seemed to have been
all that was corrupt, debauched, insensate; brutalized to such a degree that his normal condition sunk*
to the level of a perpetual Inebriate,
to whom murder only meant further supplies ot tbe much-loved drink,
without .which he could not exist.
Burke was built like a Hercules,
Great knotted tranches ol muscles on
arms, legs and chest met the gaze
of the people as they passed ln their
thousands to see the dead monster,
lying on the black marble table,

never saw a face ln which the lines
of profligacy were more distinctly
marked. Kven the miserable child In
her arms, Instead ot casting one ray
of maternal softness Into her countenance, seemed at every attack
twhooping cough) to fire her with intense anger and impatience, till at
length the infant was plainly used as
an Instrument ot delaying or evading
certain questions it was inconvenient to answer." Her husband or
paramour fared no better at the
hands ot the eloquent pleader : " Here
was a squalid wretch, in whom the
habits of his disgusting trade, want
and profligacy, seem to have been
long operating in order to produce a
monster whose wili as well as his
poverty will consent to tiie perpetration of the direst crimes."
We would have to go buck to 1487,
wben Sir   Robert Graham   murdered
James I., to find a trenzied clumor lor
blood such us come trom all classes
of society   against Burke,   his    confederates, anil the doctors.   Another
displuy of feeling, quite us powerful,
wus   regret   lor  the deuth   of   the
harmless favorite, "Daft Jamie," who
was so well known und liked by the
citizens. For this one utrocity alone
the mob would have torn Burke limb
trom limb  had extraordinary  police
precautions not  been taken.    Every
little story ot Jamie's    simple    and
amusing ways,   ills sayings,   his doings, at   church   und   market,   with
geutle and simple, were brought up,
and added  fresh fuel  to the tire of
hate with which the liopuluce   were
infuriated against  the ruffian  about
to meet his end. And round the scaffold such a scene 1 "Don't spare hini,
bangle I" "Turn him round I"    "He'll
sune see 'Daft Jamie !' " Fooling with
the writhing limbs ol the struggling
ruffian, who seemed to die hard, the
undertaker's   men   beneath the scut-
told,    like    the     yelling      multitude
around, viewed   his horrible  contortions  with   loathing and   disgust,  it
not with   a tec'llng  of satisfied vengeance.
Burke declared thut he was totnliy
unfamiliar with the person ot "Daft
Jamie," and had never seen him till
Mrs. Hare came to  him ln Itymer's
shop and  made the  signal that another victim   was    entrapped,  it   ts
not credible, however, that he could
have been perpetually drinking about
the    Grassmarket    without    seeing
Jamie hunted by the little boys. In
tbe confession  Burke mnde  a   week
before   his    execution   be described
how ho wns standing at the counter
drinking when Hare's wife came In for
a pennywortli of butter, and whilst
sharing In his whiskey site stamped on
hts toot.     He nt once knew be was
wanted,   and   quickly   lollowed     to
Hare's honse, where he found Jamie
sitting on the bedside witli a whiskey
cup in hts hand.   Burke declared that
Hare was the attacking party, while
Hare maintained that Jamie had mastered Burke, who called on bis fel'.ow-
murderer to help, else "he would stick
a knifo In hlin." '
But tho Btory of horror becomes pathetic when told ln its plain truth.

Tbe Btory of Richard Reese (or
Reeves), tlie counterfeiter, wlio wae
arrested near Los Angeles recently, ts
a tragic example of the mutability ot
human affairs. Reese has seen but two
years less than halt a century ot life,
His training was that ofa mechanic.
He Is not a man skillful with hands
alone, but one wbo works with both
hand and brain. Wben C. S. Grant
was running for President, years ago,
there was a big political celebration
in Chicago. Grant was there, and
Reese rode in his carriage as a representative of the laboring classea, proclaimed by his fellows the most skillful mechanic in all America.
As tlie years went by the man's
reputation grew and increased. At
last be obtained a place in one ofthe
great sliops at Homestead. Fa. Eventually he rose to be foremirh, with a
salary of $8,000 a year. Then came
the great Homestead strikes, which
brought ruin and deatli to so many
men. Reese was Infected with the
labor doctrines tben prevailing. When
tlie struggle was over, Reese was a
ruined mau. His place was lost, and
a reputation established as a man
wbo could not be relied upon in case
of a Btrike.
Reese came to California. He came
to Lob Angeles some months ago, expecting to obtain a position as foreman of the rolling mills. There was
some hitch, and in consequence Reese
obtained only a subordinate position.
He was not content with this. There
was a dispute, and Reese's connection
with tlie rolling-mill ended.
Reese got very poor, Indeed, and poverty drove him to crime. He put his
skill as a mechanic to tlie evil use of
making bogus money. He declares be

said that persons wbo never In the

never darken a theatre's doors.
He declared that unless a change
for the better occurred very soon tbe
theatres must inevitably go to the

another year there would literally be
nobody left to support the theatres.
Indeed, the bicycle appears to be
" hogging" everything. It confers
tew benefits upon the world ot trade,
except in the domain ot confectionery and soit drinks. In a vigorous
campaign ot the asphalted paradise ot
Eighth avenue I was unable to discover that any ol the tradespeople
were happy over the despotism ot the
wheel save the candy men and the
saloon  keepers.
But the latter were by no means
satisfied with the drift of things.
They said that they were selling very
little hard stutf. and still less beer,
to bicyclists. It appears tbat the
wheelmen find It necessary to stick
to soft drinks in order to stick to
their saddles.
An immense quantity of candy Is
consumed by both sexes. Women are
said to be Incessant cliewers ot gum
and sweets when on the road. Men
are becoming converted to the habit,
and Instead of smoking, as they used
to do, now munch mint stick, suck
lemon balls or chew gum.
Wheelmen have also discovered
that cycling and smoking are irreconcilable. What Is the result? Re-
tall tobacco dealers will tell you that
there Is a tremendous falling oit In
their receipts. An authority on the
tobacco trade told me that the bicycle had lessened the output of the
manufacturers by 70,000,000 cigars
annually. Chowers also find It Inexpedient to use the weed tn their rides
and many have even gone to the
length ol giving up tbe habit altogether.
In conclusion, attention ls called to
the phenomenon that some of the
Chicago theatres have given np their
Sunday performances because the
patrons who nsed to flock to them

and over asphalt roads.

Far From Such Prescriptions for Disease
as the Following.
There ls carefully preserved, says tlie
London Telegraph, among the manuscripts of the Duke of Portland, at
Welbeck Abbey, a recipe for curing
smallpox. Tlie historical manuscript commissioners have deemed it
ot sufficient Importance to print in one
of tholr recent entertaining volumes.
It appears tbat in 16UO it was generally reported tliat " His Highness the
Duke of York (afterwards Janies II.)
is by Cod's almighty hand visited
with smallpox," whereupon Dr. Wil-
dey, an eminent physician of Rotterdam, sent liis advice respecting treatment of the King. " Take," lie wrote,
" new-laid eggs, three yolks and
whites, fry them in fresh butter tbat
was never salted, twelve ounces, till
tlie eggs be very hard. Then pour tbe
butter from the eggs into a basson
full of fayre cold water. Let it stand
till the butter be cold and caked; then
take It olf trom the water and put tt
into a fayre vessell and beat tt with a
wooded spatter, continually, adding
three or four drops of damnske rose
water, till tlie butter with beating
come to be white."
The unguent thus constituted was to
be administered every three hours.
" thi quantity of a uuttmeg upon a
knife point." Tliat would cure the
smallpox all right, but then would
come the trouble of sleeplessness. Dr.
Wildey was prepared to deal with
tliat matter also, and his prescriptions may perhaps commend itself to
such of the Innumerable modern sufferers from Insomnia aa have sufficient
faith: " Now If it please God that Bis
Royall Highness the Due of York can-
not sleep, lett a live pldgeon be slltt
In two, and one-half be applyed so
soone as it ls splltt to tbe sole of one
foot ond the other half to the sole of
the other foot, fast bound witb

hours. By God's help tbat will procure sleep, and extract the venomous

tbe church must divest itself of its

A Story of Pride and Passion.
Tbe weather continued fair and the
sea smooth, and Mrs. Delane found*
herself really enjoying the voyage to
which sbe had looked forward with
such terror and anguish. Once now
and tben a misgiving about Arthur
would smite her, but Clarendon waa
so cheerfully confident that all
wonld be well; tbat, at that moment,
. her husband was following swiftly on
her track, and* would be ln New
York three days, perhaps two, after
herself���tbat she became converted to
his views. She was secretly pleased
to believe that Arthur must be suffering anxiety and* remorse on her account, and she was glad to think he
could not possibly know how very
much better matters wero going with
her than could reasouaDly have been
supposed. She bad go intention ot
telling him, although sbe meant to
expatiate thankfully npon all Clarendon's kindness. And It would be impossible, sbe folt, to exaggerate her
sufferings for the first forty-eight
hours. She was delighted with her
maid, who was a bright, intelligent
creature, with charming manners,
and amused Ethel greatly with the
humors of the second-class and steerage contingent. Sbe spoke without
reserve ot her past, and her anticipations for tbe future. She had been
attached to Mrs. Seymour and reluctant to leavo her, but having received several argent letters irom ber
only brother, who was doing extremely well In Canada, to Join him, she
had at Inst made up her mind to comply ; the more readily as she was
anxious to break with a young man
to whom she was engaged, who was
addicted to tbe curse of English men-
servants, drink. She bad been food
of bim, bat she knew there could be
no happiness or security in such a
marriage,, and so had resolved to get
right away from him. Ethel, whose
weakness we kuowi it was to be a
little autocratic and Imperious, was
always kind and considerate to those
who served her, and Grant became
quite attached to her ln a day or
two. Here, on board ship, Mrs. De-
lane's little weakness waa altogether ln abeyance. She was dependent, yielding, confiding; a thoroughly charming and attractive woman. She Uked herself infinitely better under these condition*���It was always tbe softer graces that she admired in her own sex, and she loved
to depend on the strength and protection ot a man. Hugo's thousand
little cares audi attentions were delightful to her, and she wished more
than ouce, with' a deep sigh; tbat
Arthur had the same nice, tender
ways. Bat he had alwaya, even lh
his most affectionate moods, been undemonstrative and nnprodlgal ot
small attentions. It might be that
bis pride revolted against being
thongbt to toady or wish to propitiate his wife as ' she held, the
puree. Whatever the cau*i inlght
be, Ethel had, oflten deplored the
fact I suppose thera atea tqsne hard,
hall-unsexed belhgs Who scoff at
and profess Independence of kind, tender little cares Irom men, bu* tbey
are not womenly women, and Ethel
was essentially that,
Sbe was blissfully conscious ot the
tact that her shipmates made remarks not altogether charitable
about her anil Clarendpn���even bad
she been aware of It, she would probably have been calmly and Imperially
Indifferent to the fact. Clarendon
knew It, and was a good deal embarrassed and annoyed by It. But what
could he do? He would certainly
not affront Mrs, Delane by suggesting ths idea���It wonld be an odious
impertinence, he thought, knowing, ln
lier perfect purity of mind and conduct, bow' little she could comprehend the suspicions and Imaginings
of vulgar people; and though he eared
a* much for her reputation as every
gentleman at lieart does for that of a
woman whom he likes and who depends on him, he did not feel called
npon to offend her, and spoil his own
��� pleasure by putting the idea Into her
head. So he took the goods the gods
paovlded, sighing only to think how
transitory they were Ukely to be,
They had been at sea a week, and
expected to arrive ln New York early
the following morning. Tbey were
taking their laat turn on the deck
after dinner. Hugo Clarendon felt ex**
ceedlngly eorrowtiil; all tbe more so,
perhaps, because Mn. Delane was ln
her brightest, happiest mood.
''I cannot realize," she said, "that I
bava been at sea a week, The time
has positively flown. And now," and
she looked ln his eyes witb the friendliest expression, "I can hardly, thanks
to yoa, remember that I was ever at
all miserable and terrified���It seems
as thdugh nil the time bad been like
a pleasant holiday. I wish I could
thank. 7oai I wish I could tell you
what yoa have been to me."
HUgo half smiled, half sighed.
������And how," he aaid, "am I to tell
i you what yoa have been to me i what
'- a GoUsemd It haa been to me. Instead
oi miking by myself or being bored
to death by uncongenial people, to
have the companionship of a kind,
charming lady who haa been saying
pleasant things to me all the time.
When you thank me I feel overwhelmed by the thought of how meagre and trifling my services have
been. What have I done for you T
The first day or two yon accepted my
arm for a few turns on the ship; I
have had the privilege of occasionally patting a wrap round yoa, and
trying to select yoa a superior potato
at meals; and, upon my word, my
memory falls me for anything more."
"You have taken care ot me all the
time," cried Mrs, Delane, warmly, "I
have felt as If yon belonged to me,
and that I was quite safe. And did
yoa not get me my treasure of a maid
whom I could not possibly bave got
without yout The Idea would never
hava occurred to me."
Hnffo laughed.
���Weill" ke aaid. "I wUl no longer
try to depredate myaelf, because it la
altogether delightful to be thanked
by yoa; bat since tbe obligations are
ao verr mutual, shall we not cry
"No," laid Ethel, "I will not have
aay part ol my debt cancelled. I
���hall pot ba happy until Arthnr baa
thanked yon, and until yoa hav* been
to stay with ess at th* Manor House."
Th* first part of her sentence
gave him a disagreeable twinge, but
tbe end atoned for it.
"I think," remarked Clarendon, In
the same half-Jesting tone he had
already used, " I shall make it my
business henceforth to go about the
world ln search of distressed ladles.
But I might not always be successful Suppose now that when I ventured to offer you my wrap yoh bad,
like Aurora Baby, 'Glanced at me
witb an air of calm surprise,' (I won't
swear that I am quoting quite correctly), and declined."
"In tbat case," returned Ethel,
"yon woiild have thought me a very
Ill-mannered woman, and would have
left me to my fate."
"I should bave felt horribly snubbed.
You knovf, you might have thought
tt was a subterfuge em "���<����� part, and
that I was trying to make your acquaintance. And I a-m not sure,
smUtng, "tbat your suspicions would
hav* been altogether unfounded."
"All's well tbat ends well," said
Mrs. Delane, gaily.
"That ends weU," he repeated,
rather dolefully. "That la the
worst of It���tbe end Is drawing very
near now."
"By this time to-morrow," said
Ethel, "I suppose we shall have
" No. Indeed," he protested. " I shall
not leave New York until I have delivered you up to your husband."
"Ohl" cried Ethel, "I cannot possibly consent to that. Your sister
wUl be expecting you, and Indeed you
must not trouble about me any more
after we land."
" Would yon think by my face," asked Hugo, "that I was a veiy obstinate fellow?"
" Yes," she answered; " I can quite
believe It. You are extremely amiable, and all amiable people are obstinate."
"I am certainly obstinate," here-
turned. "And I Intend to remain
ln New York until the Cunard boat
comes In, whether you allow me the
privilege of your society or not. Besides, you are a stranger ln New
York, and I know it well���will you
not let me do showman to you for
the next day or two?"
"There le nothing I should Uke better," answered Mrs. Delane, "Ulehall
really not be spoiling your plans or
yonr sister's.'"
"I am rather erratic," said Hugo,
"and my sister is accustomed to expect me*, when slie sees me. When
Captain . Delane comes out, you
will of 'tourse see something ot America new* you are out here, and I
hope you will coma to Washington
and make my sister's acquaintance.
She wiU be more than delighted to
welcome yon. An Englishwoman Is
alwaya a Godsend to her."
"I should Ilka it ot all things," responded Ethel. "Yes, of course, I
must see the wonders of America. I
am dying to see Niagara. Now I
have got so far, I bave no Intention
of going home without enlarging
my knowledge and experience. Then,
when I ���get back, I shall be aide
to swagger beautifully about my
travels, Just," gaily, "as if they had
been quite voluntary. Yoa wlU
never, ueveri" anxiously, " breathe the
truth of our meeting to anyone, will
yon? You will let people think that
my husband and I were together all
the time?"
He replied, ln rather a hurt voice:
"I hope you can trust me Just a
"Of course I can," she answered,
quickly. " But yoa know one always
feels safer for receiving an oath of
secrecy about one's dark doings."
She looked at him with pleading
"My position la a little humiliating, you must confess."
"I do not confess It," he an-
swered, stoutly. "I think you have
behaved Uke a heroine, and your husband ought to worship you for it I
daresay he will."
Ths next morning they passed Sandy
Book at '10 o'clock. A couple ot hours
later tbey stopped at tbe Quarantine
station and remained there about an
hour, and soon after 8 o'clock the
ship wub docked in New York harbor. Shortly alter this tbe Purser
came to look tor Mrs. Delane, bringing with him a gentleman who presented his card and told her that,
according to Instructions from Captain Delane, be bad taken rooms for
her at tbe Buckingham Hotel, and
was at her service to do anything tn
his power to be of use to her. Seeing her, however, ln company with,
and apparently on the best of terms
with a fine-looking young woman, hs
did not press his otters of assistance
as be would otherwise have done, but
contented himself with assuring her
that he was at her commands at any
time when she Bhould have need ot
him. He also handed her tho following cable:
" Words cannot express what I
teel. Am following you by ���"
(mentioning Cunard boat) "and hope
to be With you Saturday or Sunday
at latest."
Ethel was radiant as she communicated this to Hugo. She cordially
thanked her husband's envoy, telling
him that she would not fall to ask
his assistance ahould she be In need
of It, but that In the meantime ber
friend, Captain Clarendon, had been
good enough to promise to look after
her until her husband should arrive.
Tlie stranger saluted her and departed, having conceived an Idea   of
his own to the -affect that the young
lady had eloped with the good-looking
Englishman, and tbat her husband
was ln pursuit, but not desirous ot
making a scandal.
Then Clarendon saw her luggage
through tbe customs, and accompanied her to the hotel. From motives of deUcacy he took up his abode
at the Windsor, near, inatead of In
tbe same hotel.
"You must rest a little and get
settled," he told ber, "and then, If I
may, I shall come round about half-
past 7, and take you to dine at Del-
" That will be delightful," she assented; and be went away, grudging
even to leave her for a few hours. His
happiness, he folt, was coming to an
end; soon tt would be altogether a
thing of the past.
Now, tn ber own country, Ethel
would not have dreamed of dining
alone at a restaurant with a young
man, but here, In this land of strangers, it seemed the most natural thing
In tbe world; Inded, she folt as
though Hugo belonged to her, and
he was her legitimate protector.
She was extremely happy���lier husband's cable had filled her heart with
Joy���be had, no doubt, been a prey to
remorse at the thought of her hapless
plight���he waa hastening to Join
ber; there would be a delightful renewing of love and confidence.
Meantime, she had her kind friend to
take care of hor and show her tho
sights; and, what had at lirst seemed an awful catastrophe, with no mitigating circumstances, now appeared ln
the light of an unmixed good.
Punctual to a moment, Clarendon
came to fetch her, and before long
they were seated at dinner ln tbe
famous restaurant. Mrs. Delane bad
made herself as smart as her limited
wardrobe permitted, and was looking
lovely���at least, so Hugo thought.
"To-morrow,'- she said, gaily, "I
am going shopping. I shall not put
you to shame by letting you be seen
with a dowdy Englishwoman. I have
often heard what reputations we
earn both ln America and abroad by
presenting ourselves at smart places
In our ordinary travelling gear."
Of course Clarendpn protested that
she looked charming, more charming
than anyone In the room; but she
���"How dare you tell such a story
even with the best Intentions I" she
cried. "Look at all these lovely
creatures and their lovely clothes,
and wonderful hats and bonnets.
Really American women are very
pretty,'- and she looked admiringly
"I always think," declared Hugo,
" that there Is no woman ln the world
who ean touch an Englishwoman
when she Is pretty and well-bred."
And he pointed his remark with
a very expressive look.
"I do not tbink." said Ethel, looking round, " that I ever saw sol many
pretty women ln one room before���
ceratlnly not In a restaurant. But
what a noise I I can scarcely hear
myself apeak."
"That ts the bad paving," he returned. "It seems extraordinary
tbat Americans, who are not often
behindhand, can put up with the
state of their streets as tbey do."
Mrs. Delane and her companion
came ln for a good deal of attention.
Clarendon especially waa an object
of much Interest to the fair Americans, who evidently admired his physique. He, however, was entirely engrossed with Mrs. Delane. As we
have heard, " beauty ls in the eye of
the beholder,'- and she appeared to
him by far the most attractive woman ln the room. After dinner he
took her back to ber hotel, and stayed with her for halt an hour, making
arrangements for the following day.
"I must go shopping In the morning/' ehe said, "and I cannot expect you to accompany me oni such
an uninteresting expedition."
But Clarendon declared that if there
was one thing he loved better than
another, It was shopping witb a
lady, ,
"Besides,'- he said, "you will want
me to do cicerone.'*
" And can you ?'��� she asked.
'Oh, Indeed, yes," he laughed, "you
will find me extremely Intelligent. I
shall take you first to White & Howard s. In Madison avenue. They are
the great modistes. By tbe way,"
with some little confusion, " you must
have come away ln such* a* hurry-
may I���may I be your banker until
Captain Delane arrives?"
But Ethel assured him gaily, that
she had neaps Uf money, though ehe
was very grateful to bim for making the suggestion.
So the next morning he called tor
ber after breakfast, took her to
Broadway, showed her -Tiffany's and
other shops of note, and waited patiently at White & Howard's whilst
she selected appropriate apparel.
They lunched at her hotel, after
which he ordered a carriage and took
her to see Brooklyn Bridge and
through Brooklyn. They were to
dine early at the Brunswick and go
to Daly s Theatre afterwards.    .
" Upon my word,'* he exclaimed, as
she entered her sitting-room when he
came to take her to dinner.
She   knew   what   he   meant,   and
laughed gaily.
'Fine feathers 1'* she said.
"The plumage is    lovely,'* he    remarked, "and almost worthy of the
Mrs. Delane knew that she wus
looking well; knew too thut he
thought her charming, and a woman
Is always at her bbet ln the society
of a man who admires her and whom
sbe likes. Ethel loved praise, it
unconsciously put ber on her mettle,
and made her what the man who
praised her believed her to be.
She scarcely ever remembered to
have spent so dsllghtful a day. Not
only was she enjoying tbe present,
but there was the heavenly anticipation of seeing Arthur, perhaps to-
As for Clarendon, lie knew) well
enough that he was too happy, and
that he would soon hare to pay tne
" It Is a very good thing," he said
to himself, with a deep, deep sigh,
" that I am not going! to be with
ber much longer. Ahd yet how hateful It will be whenl It ls all over-
how Hat and stale everything
wUl seem. Oho thing I will certainly spare myaelf. I will not be witness ot ths bliss of the reunited lovers. As aoon as I have placed her In
bis arms," (with a groan), "I wUl be
off to Washington by the next train.
She ls tbe most charming, the most
loveable woman I ever met, and
fust as good aa she ls charming. And
I don't suppose he half appreciates
her; that'a Just the way of things 1"
Ethel woke radiant on the Saturday morning. She told hersell that
she had never felt so happy. Arthur's
ship was due to-day, and, though
Clarendon had cautioned her not to
make too sure, she had a presentiment that they would be reunited
this verr day. She chatted gaily to
Grant ail the time she was dressing.
The maid had willingly consented to
remain with her until Captain De-
lane's arrival, and even a little longer, and said cheerily that ber brother had been waiting for her so
long that a few days more or leas
would make no difference to either of
Ethel was to go shopping again tn
the morning with her escort, and for
a drive In the afternoon. He had told
her that the arrival of the boat at
Sandy Hook would be notified at the
hotel, so that they would have four
or five hours' notice. Nothing had
been heard by luncheon time, so soon
afterwards Clerendon ordered a carriage, and took her along the Riverside drive aad home by Central Park.
There were some very fine trotters
in buggies and buck-boards, and she
was delighted with these, having a
great fondness for good horses.
" I would give anything," she cried,
to sit behind one of those dear
"I am not aure," replied Hugo,
" that you would Uke It so very much.
Rushing through,the air at that
pace, and having your face stung
with sharp little stones most of tbe
time, added to a feeling of extreme
InsecoSBy, la not unmixed bliss. Goggles oM a veil are Indispensable."
But she persisted that she wonld
Uke to try It once, at all events.
-lust so anxious as she was to hear
news ot the ship was Clarendon for
it to   be delayed, though, like    the
Sod fellow he   was, he tried    very
rd to conquer hla feelings.
Bnt there was no news on their return, and Mrs. Delane agreed to dine
with him at the Hoffman House.
"It WUl be so vexing." she sold, "If
the ship arrives In tbe night, and I
cannot be there to meet him."
"He Is not likely to land before
morning," Hugo assured her. "Besides, he will probably not know
where you are, unless he told his
agent where to take rooms for you."
She was very gay and charming all
dinner time; her eyes sparkled, and
she looked, as he thought, lovelier
than ever with a glow of excitement
on her cheeks.
"I have written to Nelly." she
told him. "and have given her the
minutest details ot my voyage. And
I have scolded her for not telling me
mom about you after she met you
at the Clinton's."
He laughed.
" You nee," he said, " that as ehe
did not meet me as you did, under
exceptional circumstances, I did not
make much Impression on her.".
When you come to stay with us,"
remarked Mrs. Delane. "Nelly shall
come too. How Interesting It will be
to talk this time over. If a fortnight
ago I could have been shown a picture of myself sitting at dinner In
New York With an absolute stranger,
who had ln tbe meantime become my
best friend, how astonished I should
nave been I"
"Destiny Is a strange thing I" be
answered. "I suppose this was all
planned from the beginning of time.
I wonder to What end ?"
And he looked at her half doubtfully, half wistfully.
" Por my unmixed benefit." she said
He did not reply for a moment He
was thinking It was Ukely to be a
very mixed benefit for himself, but he
bad no Intention ol pnttlng the
thought Into words.
"Are you equal to early rising?"
she asked, presently. "For I am
going to give orders that I may be
called even In tbe smallest hours when
the ship Is telegraphed. It she is due
at six, I mean to be at the dock."
" Make up your mind," he answered,
"to bave your sleep out She will
most likely not be in before mid-day."
"But If she should be," argued
Ethel, "yon will put the finishing
touch to your 'kindness by coming to
fetch me?"
"I will Indeed," he replied, making
a further reflection on Captain De-
lane's good fortune.
On.hia return to bis hotel, he examined the time-table to see what
trains went to Washington. For as
soon as he had restored the lost pair
to each other, be would get out ot
sight, tf not out of mind of them. Be
had no ambition to make a third; an
unwelcome third.
. In tlie morning Grant brought word
that the Cunard boat bad passed
Sandy Hook, and would In all probability arrive ln New York between
eleven and twelve. A few minutea
later a note came from Captain Clarendon, saying that he would call for
Mrs. Delano at a quarter to eleven.
Ethel was radiant Sho took the
greatest pains witb her toilette, and
when Hugo camo for her wua rippling
over with happy smiles and excitement
" Ab," she said to him, as tbey
went along, "I shall want such a
big white stone to mark this blessed
duy with. Now I am quite delighted
thut everything happened as It did.
I will write Destiny with a big D, ln
grateful remembrance henceforward.
I hopo you will like Arthur���but I
know you will. And he Is sura to
Uke you; you have so many tastes
ln common. And then, too, he will be
so grateful for all your goodness to
Hugo smiled.
" It Is very pleasant," he said, " to
earn so much gratitude ky doing the
most delightful thing in the world.
But please take pity on my modesty,
and do not Insist too mueh on my
"Ah," returned Ethel, with a
Uttle nod, "It Is all very well for
you to make light ot it, but you
know that I could not have done
without you."
Arrived at the dock, tiioy left tlie
carriage, and walked u; und down
waiting for the ship to come ln.
Tliey had not very long to wait, and
great was Ethel's excitement wben
the boat came alongside. She scanned
the decks eagerly with her eyes for
the beloved face that she yearned to
see, and was much disappointed not
to recognise It amongst tbe passengers grouped about
_" Why, ls he not there 7" she asked
Hugo, In on excited tone. " Is tt
not very strange 7"
" No," answered Clarendon, " he
probably does not dream ol your heing here, and ls looking after his

" I will go on board and look for
him tbe moment they fix the gangway," said Hugo. " You wait here,
and I will bring him off in triumph."
He could not bear to see her look
so anxious.
"He must be there" she snid, wistfully, and he returned.
" Of course he must."
Clarendon went on board, and found
the Purser.
"Is Captain Delane on board?" he
Tho Purser drew down the corners
of his moutb, and looked very solemn.
" Ah I" he ejaculated, " that's a bad
" What do you mean 7" asked Hugo,
"Why, four daya ago, be was
washed overboard; he and another
passenger and a deck-hand. We
shipped some heavy seas. He Just
came on deck to have a look round,
and next moment a sea came, up
from the stem and washed 'em aU
three clean olf."
"Great God I" cried Clarendon,
white to tbe Upa.
" Yes; It's a bad Job. Are you related to htm, sir?"
"No," stammered Hugo, "but his
poor wife has come to meet him. She
Is on the dock, and how am, I going
to teU her?"
Tbe Purser shook his head.
" Dear I dear I" he exclaimed, "that's
a bad business. Can't yoa get hsr
bome before you tell ber ? Can't yoa
say be didn't come In this ship? Very
sorry, sir, bgt I cant Stop now;'*
and Bugo was lett standing with
the most sickening sensation he had
felt since the day of the tragedy of
his Ufe.
" God ln Heaven I" he said to himself again and again. " What coa I

rifled at the thought of the agony
