A PHILOSOPHER IN UNION.
Mr. Editor:*- Being a philosopher we
feel qualified to give advice to all ordinary people. We shall endeavor occasionally to make a few timelv suggestions to
some particular division of society; aud
begin by this week addressing some admonitions ti> that class of tourists designated as tramps assuring them that the
following sage observations wilt repay a
more than superficial perusal:
There is scarcely onc of your number
who cannot by making a little necessary
rffiH secure employment for a matter of
six* months nr so, and by frugality and
temperance save enough during that
periud to pay for a good bicycle. We
grant that it would be a terrible task to
change your leisurely habits for thrift and
industry, to use your muscular rather than
your oratorical powers, and you mighi,
alas! even have to wash occasionally in
order lo hold your job. But remember
that you need continue ihis objectionable
life only for a very limited period, and
then think of the haughty scorn with which
ynu could look down upon your unfortunate bicycle-less fellow tramp wending
his weary way toward the distant farmstead, as ynu sail majestically by him on
your pneumatic wheel; and are thus en
abled to strike the hired girl for a handout before she loses her giod humour by
repealed solicitations, X.-
IN THE SUKKEB DATS.
Written for thk wbeklv mews
Now, in the dim, dark days o*
dreary winter, how pleasant it is to look
back to summer days spent in the woods,
within sight and sound of the "ever murmuring sea," with the dark .pines behind
us, the shell strewn beach for our camping
ground, and the swish, swish of those
rfsilrss Waves for our lullaby. It was just
peifeci weather lasi August, when the
captain and hi** lady, Mr-. Morrison, the
professor, and I drove up through tbe
woods, past Black Creek and Oyster
River, tr some places over skid roads
in others over boulder-strewn shores,
where our 'd-jetty Bucephalus danced
a species of tarantella, vainly trying to
find firm footing on the Slippery blocks,
gigantic stones, wh'xh -terc more like a
" giant's caUseWay * th in a civilized road.
( I wish the government agent would
drive up there sometimes. )
At last after a delicious bit of driving
over some smooth turf wc arrived at Mr.
J. Stewart's ranch. Here Mrs. ���"���tewart
came out to meet us. " And I'm sure
I'm very glad to-see you all, and 1 bid
you all most he-mily welcome I come in
all of you I" This in the heartiest kindest
tones which made us all feel we had
reached a haven of rest after all our adventures. A bounteous tea and a delight
ful night's rest in a cozy bedroom completed the charm, and tbe next morning
we aro.>e -.cfrcshed. This is one of the
"oul o' the world" places, a ranch
on tho seashore, with peace and plenty
reigning around; the garden well culti-
va:ed and very productive; plenty of vegetables, milk, butter, and bacon'; plenty
of fresh air; trout from the river just at
hand, and salmon and cod from the bay.
Mr. Stewart kindly lent us his boat the
next morning', nnd away we went over
the smooth blue waters,'the captain rowing and we trolling for salmon. It was
just delightful. Isn't it charming, to
lounge restfully in a boat which is being
propelled by efficient arms thr-nigh rippling waters, catching sweet whispering
breezes, and dreaming of rest nnd peace
���nothing lo think about and nothing to
do? Then is ones mind fully attuned to
Thomson's words:
"0 I grievous foilv I to heap up estate,
"Losing the daysyou see benefit 1) the sun
*      *      *      *      *
"0! sure it is of vanities most vain
[may obtain.
"To toil for what you fiere-untoilinj '
Of course we, being idle, agreed with
thc-ie words; not so the captain upnn
whom all the toil fell, but be was patient
and never grumbled. Valdez island lay
to our right, on the left the shores of our
island, thickly.wooded except here and
there a patch nf cleared land, where the
industrious "Settler had striven bravely
���with wild, wayward nature. Here Mr.
KntghtVlarge, fertile, prettily situated
farm, there Mr. A. Calcno's, farther on
W, Paccy's ranch and then Campbell
River. Still on and on, passing Quathi-
aska Cove on the right, and into Duncan
Bav, where we intended to camp.
On thc journey up we were trolling, and
you who have not experienced it cannot
imagine the thrill of excitement that runs
through you when there is a genuine tug
at the end if your line. Down go thc
captain's oars, and frantically we begin
drawing up. An immense salmon leaps
oul ofthe water a fc*.v yards behind the
boat, turns w complete somersault, un*
hjnks itse'f. and very blank are the faces
as we gaze at the empty hook. But Mrs
Morrison had better luck. She thinks
she was not excited, but we know belter;
and when we had fairly embarked the
fish and it had floundered 'round under
our legs, upsetting the dear little professor, thc captain wildly fl.mri-.lrng one of
hts oars, and making frantic p.vses at
every glimpse he could get of thc $hmy
minster, und the prize Uy half dead and
gasping at our feet���then she smiled a
proud little smile of i-iumph, and the
professor saw it and growted that it wns
the selfish people who caught ail the f'sh
in this world; given the line be could
have caught the fish.
At last in a delicious little cove by the
side ofa turbid -nt stream, where little
water birds, tame as sparrows, swam and
dived and gravely considered lhe new
inhabitants of their land, we made our
beds of pine boughs, our dining table and
seats of split logs, and fires o( the rein-
ous fir; and like the three men in a boat,
tried to put up the tent. I must say it is
a tantalizing situation when it is all but
finished, to see it suddenly collapse, and
four bewildered countenances meet in an
astonished stare over the ruins. However, hurrah 1 for the captain. Ha soon
put things in order, and suspending himself in a kind of hammock, under the dining table I bc'ievc, after a good tea wc all
settled down-to sweetest, deepest slumber
, pots any .one know what a "windego"
is ? Some one near Fanny Bay, very
learned in old Indian superstitions, and
who bad seen the tracks of a "windego"
on the beach, perhaps Could give you
some information nn the subject. Well
we saw one this night. When we awoke
in tht bright moonlight, there it was, not
far from the door of the tent, white and
gaunt; its ann*. stretched out as-* though
in warning, or perhaps prepared to enclose us in a cold, chilling embrace; its
while skirts seeming to ru**tlt* a** the wind
came moaning through the trees; and
with a cry and a shiver we dodged under
the blankets.
But 1 must go back a litt'e. Our captain was an entomologist and was most
interested in col'ecting inserts on our
journey up; he had really a most won*
derful menagerie, if I may be allowed the
term, but some of them unfortunately got
loose and crept into snme of his under*
garments. Tins was decidedly unpleasant; so before he settled for 1 tie night he
bad hung his white shirt with arms distended on a willow bush, oppositr to our
lent, and this accounts for our "windego"
but I have nn doubt that other hm-ies
have a much more supernatural origin.
Lovely, bright, breezv summer morning I We are all in the wood*, gazing
upon a strange invasion of that dark,
silent, trackless forest. Before us lay thc
beginning of a railway, graded smooth
and level, and reaching out far, far
through a dim vista of gigantic pines, and
thc end we cannot see.      * *
Lving quietly nn owe of the gnarled
r roots nf the weird old* trees, in the slumbrous afternoon I steep and dream that I
am awakened by the shrill whistle of an
incoming train, I look up and to I tbe for*
tit is no more; stately mansions crown

ALMOST A BIOT.
Union Chinamen Rob a Man of
S225. and Lock up Andrew
MeKnlght, J. p.. and Constable
BmlChuPSU who Attempt to
Arreat Them -Twenty Special
Constables Sworn In and 34
Arrests Made Their Trial and
Sentences.
About half past seven o'clock last Saturday evening a Chinaman popularly
known as Carriboo was assaulted in the
Chinese Free Masons' hall, and robbed
by a number of his countrymen. One
man took hold of his queue and pulled
him down, a second striking him with an
iron bolt eighteen inches long, and ethers holding him wh le one of their number secured his purse containing over
$200. One of his friends notified the
authorities, and Andrew McKnight, j. P.,
with constable Smithurst proceeded to
Chinatown for tht purpose of arresting
Toy Chung and others implicated in the
robbery. They entered the masons' hall
accompanied by Carriboo and attempted
to make ihe arrests, but there were about
150 Cnmamen in the'rojin. These closed and locked the door and many of them
assaulted Carriboo and the officers, trying to prevent lhe latter from handcuffing one of -he robbers. McKnight
wrested the iron bar previously mention-
eel, from 1 Chinaman; with this he cleared a space around himself and then went
to the assistance of Smithurst and Carriboo, who were defending themselves a!*
gainst heavy odds. A few white men on
the outside, hearing the noise and knowing that the officers were within, burst
open the dour and went lo their assistance. McKnight nnd Smithurst being
unable to make further arrests without assistance, proceeded with their capture to
the office of Jas Abrams J. P., where
their prisoner, Jung Yoy, after being fined
$20 ana costs, was released. At this
juncture word was brought by some Chinese thnt Carriboo was killed, but this
report afterwards proved to be incorrect.
Twenty special cntiStablcs were at once
sworn in. Justice Abrams gave them
very thorough instructions as to their duties, and placed them in charge of constable Smithurst. The posse marched to
Chinatown followed by probably 75 men
who went along as Spectators, but it was
evident lhat the, would become something more than .spectators should the
occasion demand it. Entering thc lull,
the officers found about forty Chinamen
still there. Being unable to' identify the
culprits, and the Chinese refusing to
point them oul, lhe whole crowd was ordered to inarch to the court room. Here
we think a mistake was made in thc excitement of the moment, which resulted
in the escape of the chief offender, the
one who took the purse. In the hall were
perhaps forty Chinese, and constable
Smithurst had twenty officers at his command. Had two Chinamen been picked
not and placed ii* the custody of each of
ficer, the entire'crowd would have been
secured; but instead of laying hold uf
their prisoners they ordered the latter to
march, and as they passed out of the hall
found themselves in a dense crowd of both
whites and Chinese, where escape was
comparatively easy. Tliey succeeded in
taking thirty four prisoners into the store
room recently vacated by Win. Langton,
to which place the J.l's had renin-ed their
office. Here lhey were ranged along the
counter which Cirribon proudly mounted,
from whxh vat-tigc ground he pointed
out seven of the men who were implicated
in the robbery. The leader was not v. ith
them, having evidently effected his escape. Mr. McKnight, J. P., took a detachment of constables and made a bouse
to bouse search through the Chinese
quarter but failed to effect the desired
capture. Two men arrested in this raid
proved to be innocent and were released.
On Monday at 10 a.m. the seven prisoners being brought before J. Ps Abrams
and Grant, requested the court to postpone their case till next Wednesday, as
they did not think that a competent interpreter could be found here, and their
request was granted. All the prisoners
were released on bail except Wing, who
was refused bail, as being directly implicated in the robbery and the assault on
the officers. Telegrams lis*, e been sum
to surrounding points to prevent the escape of Toy Chung.
The authorities are deserving of praise
for their promp* action. The special constables who appeared to be an athletic
and determined body nf men, win- selected by the magistrates for their known
fitness for such service. Mr. L.W. Fauquier proved particillartv useful, especially in the seeond raid, At one time the
report was current that the Chinese h'*ld
Mr.McKnight a prisoner, and fears were
expressed by some for his safety; but a
prominent bu-inesi man who evidently
knew the man he was talking about, dispelled their fears b\ assuring them that
there were not enough Chinamen in Union to keep Andrew McKnight licked up
for ten minutes.

There was a pleasant surprise at Mr.

and report a very enjoyable time.
There will be a big pntlach at the Co-

NEWS OFFICE, nne to be occupied by
himself and family and lhe other by Mr.

way and is being pushed vigorously.
The breaking of a casing on the larger
press in the Ni:ws office last Saturday
caused some dismay among the printers;
but Mr. T. L. Kay skillfully repaired it,
making it as good as new in less than an

not fix may as well be sold f.ir old iron.
Mr. David Jones, proprietor of thc

verv one-sided view of afTairs. This is
owing tu the erratic conduct of a pup-

Just ai noon nn Friday last the Chinese laundry of Wong Lee caught fire
from a defective chimney. There was
lots ol smoke, not much fire, but great
excitement among the celestials, who
used a very little water and a vast deal of
noise in subdueing the conflagration.
A drunken row occurred among some
siwashes at Union wharf last Saturday.
Monday, magistrate Abrams and constable Smithurst went down by train to investigate. A court was held there and
two siwashes for being drunk and disorderly and generally cultus were fined $5

The impression seems to prevail that
the Masonic Ball nest Thursday evening

"On,it's you two again,!* it!" "id *****'M
.lerrold, in a-tone of voico which might
hava beon borrowed from her brother, as
Stratum and liuest were shown up into
her pretty littio drawing room, whore aho
���at rftady to preside over her china tea
tray with its quaint Sevres cups and saucers and parcel gilt apoatle spoonB, whito
a tallstanJ was on her leftwith its bronz-a
kettle huinniiuo ami whispering, and
uttering a pleasant coo now aud thon, as
it felt the warm kisses of tho  spirit lamp.
Stratton's browa contractei aud a look
nf resentment darted from liis eyes as he
-.topped short, but (iueat laughed and said
airily :
"Ves ; It ia your humble servants once
again."
"Weill and what do you want T'1
"Hear that, Stratton I " said Quest.  "A
lady sends you hur cards, 'At home Thursday, four to aix ; ' we go to the expense of
new lavender kills���no, eomo what may, I
will be truthful, inino are only freshly
olaaned���and new hats���no, truth shall
prevail ! a gloss ovor from the hatter'i
iron���drag ourselves all this way west to
to pay our devoirs���to drink lea out ol
thlmblea, and eat slices nf butter thinly
iprinkled with bread crumbs, and the lady
says, - What do you want! "'
"Of course I do. There, nit dowr, both
nt you, and, Malcolm Stratton, don't put
on that wicked,melodramatic frown; it does
not become you, Vou're a prir of impoi-
tora. Think I'm blind ': You don't come
hore to call upon a poor old woman like-
Quick, Percy, my dear boy I Blow it out j
we shall have the room in & blaze."
"No, no, be cool," said liuest, and he
made for thc spirit kettle, whose lamp had
become overheated, and was sending up
quite a volume of llame. But Stratton was
nearer, and takingouthia handketuhief, he
turned it into a pad, dabbed it on tho lamp
and the light waa smothered,
������Oh, dear me !'' sighed Mias Jerrold In
tones lull of relief, "now, that was very
clever. 1 do like presence of mind. Sugar,
Mr. Stratton?"
He bowed utility.
������Haven't burned yourself, have you, my
dt*r*" L     ,
"Oh- no; my glove protected my hand,
aaid Stratum, luuking at tlm still, formal,
handsome   old body;   half   amused,   half
pleased, by the maternal "my doar."
"Ah, now  you're   mulling   at mo,
���aid quickly. "Sugar, Pcroyl1
"A good deal, please, to take the taste
of your harsh wordaout of my mouth/'
"There then���two lumps, I know you
take sugar, Malcolm Stratton, and
cream. Well, my dear, I'm obli*--*d to
speak out; for you really are a pair of
impoatora,and I caunot have my house made
a meeting place for would-be lovers. There
���thore���there, Mr. Stratton, don't pray
turn like that, and look as it you were
going to rush away. Mine ia n very delicate poaition, and I know my brothor will
be taking mu to laak some day about all
this.   Now, do take my advice ; aud give
it all up Percy Guest,  if you break
that oup I'll never forgive you.    It
be matched."
" Would you advise ua to go and try our
fortunes in Australia, Mias Jerrold ?" said
Guest quietly, aB ho replaced the tiny oup
in the middle of ita saucer, after nearly
sending it on the carpel.
" No, I would not, you stupid boy.
There, I don't mean you at all. I dare say
Edie will be silly enough to let you wheedle
her into matrimony aomo day���a goose."
Gueat touched his breaat.
"You? No," aaid the lady sharply,
"Edie. But you two are nobodies. 1 was
thinking about Mr. Stratton, here. Now,
don't you think, my doar, you had better
give It all up?"
She held out her hand with a look of
gontle sympathy to him, and he caught it
and kissed it.
"Do you think 1 sver could';" he said,
in a low voice, while (Jueal began to display great interest in the painting of the
teacup,
"No, I suppose not," aaid Miss Jerrold,
with a sigh. "It'a very aad, you see, poor
girl, she's going through a curious morbid
phase which has completely changed her.
All that timo she had her ideas that it wu
her duty to wait and suffer; aud I di
honestly believe that if that man had be*
haved himself, been released on a ticket of
���ticket of���whal do they call those
tickets, Percy?"
" Leave," said tlm young barrister
gravely.
" Yea ; of courae���ahe would have considered it her duty to go to him if he had
come to claim her ; and then diud of misery
and despair in a month,"
"Had we not better change the conversation, MisB Jerrold V" aaid Stratton quietly*
" Yes, of couiae. I'm a very stupid old
woman, I aappose ; but Myra doea worry
me a groat deal. One moment and I've
done,and I suppose thinga muat take their
courae. But all this trenting heraelf as a
widow and���there���there���there��� I bave
done. I suppose I need not tell you they
are coming hero to-day ?"
"I did hope to seo .Miaa������"
"Huah ! Don't .mil hor that, my dear.
It must bo Mra, Barron, or Bhe will consider hersolf insulted. Ah, alios a atrango
girl, Mr. Stratton, but wu can't help liking
bor all the aamo, can wet"
She held out her hand to him with a
pleasant smile and ts nod * and tin-tut aaw
his friend's eyes brighten, and then noted
his passionate, eagor look, aa tli ere waa a
ring and a knock.
But tho ladies who oamo up wera alrang*
ars; and it waa not until qui to the laat that
Myra and her couain arrived, tho former in
black, and with a calm, resigned look in
hsr palo lace, winch had grown very
hought fid and dreamy during the aix
months which had elapsed since that morning at breakfast, when the newa camo of
Jamos Dale's tragic end.
And now her eycsnofleneilaa ahu gtculed
Stratton, and nhe aat talking to him in a
quiet suhdiied way, till the gentlemen lock
their leave, and made their way back to
Benchers' Iim.
Hardly a word wuh apoken till thuy yere
in Stratton'a room, where Uuost threw his
bat and umhrnlla down Impatiently,
walked straight to tho door on the left
of the fireplace, openi'd it, went in, and
returned wilh a cigar hox, whicli ho aet
down, and then went back to fetch out thc
apirit stand and a siphon from unolhor
shelf, while, dreamy looking and thoughtful, Stratton aat hack in an oasy-chatr
watching his friend's free and enay, quite
at home ways, but thinking the whilu ol
Myra.
'��� Might have troubled yourself to got
theglassea," BaidGaeat ill-humoredly, aB
he fetched a couple of tall, green Venice
cupa from a cabinet, poured out some
whisky, frothed it up from thu siphon, and
drank.
������ That's better," he said, with a sigh of
satisfaction.     " Aren't you going to have
one ?"
" Presently."
"Presently? Bah ! It's always presently with you. I'm tired of presently.
Edie would say 'Yes,'directly, and I could
get Aunt Jerrold to coax the ohl man
round if he wanted coaxing. Rut it's
alwaya the same. Look hore ; if you don't
keep your cigars somewhere else, and not
oa s shelf ovor that damp bath, I won't
cried
smoke em. Hardly ever get 'em to light.
Here," he continued, thrusting a oigar and
a match-box into Stratton'a hands, " do
smoke and talk, you give a fallow the
blues with your dismal looks."
"I'm vory sorry, old fellow," said stratton, lighting the cigar. "I am not dismal.
* feel very happy and contented."
" Thon  you ro   easily   satisfied,"
Quest,
Yes; because 1 hopo and believe lhat if
I am patient, my timo will como."
Not it. It's too bad of Myra.
No; I would not have her change," said
Stratton dreamily. "It is a hard and long
probation, but I can wait, and I love her
all the moro dearly for her true womanly
behavinr. There, hold your tongue, you
miserable selfish reviler of one whom in
your heart you look up to as a pattern of
womanhood.   The  joy  would be  almost
Sraster than I could boar if she said 'Yes';
ut she Is right, and I will patiently wait,
for some day the time will como."
" There you go again. Presently. It's
all very well for you with your calm worship of your ideal woman, and your high-
fslutln talk about womanhood, etcetera,
but I love my little Edie in a non-aesthetic, Chrlstianliko, manly way; audit's
maddening to be always kept off by tbo
little thing with- 'l\o, not till 1 see poor
Myra happy. Then, perhaps, you may
begin to talk.1 Perhaps and presently
make poor food for a follow like me,"
Stratton smiled at him gravely.
" That's right���laugh at mc. Tell ynu
what, Mai, you're a poor lovor, Why
don't you ask her plmnpand plain?"
Stratton made no reply but sat baok
smoking, ami his friend said no more for
a time.   At last, quietly :
"Not such a bad oigar after all, Mai.'1
Stratton did not reply for a few moments.
Then, in a low voice, full of emotion :
Percy, lad, you must bear with me; it is
all too deep for words. If we could change
places you would do as I do. Speak to her T
pray to hor ? Have I not done all this till
now when her eyes gaze in mine with their
gentle, pleading calm, and Bay to me���
'Bear with mo; be patient. If you love me,
give me time till all these sorrows of the
past have grown blurred and faint with
distance.1 Guest, old fellow, she gives me
no hope. There ia no verbal promise, but
there is a something in her gentle, compassionate look which says to me���'Wait; if
ever I oan forget the paat���if ever I marry
a man���it will be you,'"
There wss a deep silence in the room, and
faintly hesrd came the roar of tho great
oity street.
Stratton was the first to break the silence by saying softly to himself:
"Yes; wait: the time will come."
Again the silence was broken, thiB time
by a atrango hurrying, rustling sound
behind the wainscot, followed by a dull
thud.
" What'*) that ?" said Guest sharply.
"That? Oh, only the rata. There are
plenty in this old house."
" Ugh I Brutes."
"They only have runs behind the paneling.   They never come into tho rooms."
There was another silence before Guest
spoke.
" Mai, old chap,'1 he said, " I'm a miserable, impatient beast*. You are quite right;
I'm in my ordinary senses onco more. Edie
speaks just as you do, and she's as wise a
little thing as ever stepped. We must wait,
old man ; we must wait."
Malcolm Stratton waited till one evening, when fortune favored him for the mo
ment once again. It was by accident he
found Myra alone. He had heard the tones
of the piano as he went up to the drawing
room in Bourne Square, and his heart had
begun co beat wildly and then its pulsation
grew to throbs and bounds, as ho went in,
to find hor alone and playing softly in the
half light
She did not cease, but her fingers strayed
on over the keys, and once more as his arm
rested upon the piano, the chords thrilled
through nis very being; and whon, without
a word, his hands were outstretched to tako
her to his breast, she sank upon it wtth
sigh of relief. At that moment steps were
heard upon the landing, and Edie and Miss
Jerrold entered the room dressed to go to
some concert, Sir Mark following directly
after, from the dining room with Guest.
Myra did not shrink from Stratton till
all had Been what had taken place. Thon,
gravely crossing to her father, she laid her
hands together upon his breast, while he
waited for her to speak.
The words oame at last:
''Father, dear, Malcolm has aaked me
to be his wife."
Sir Mark drew her tightly to him, and
held out his hand to Stratton.
"Soon, dear, very soon, but it must be
very quiet, and not from here."
���Anything,    my  darling,   to   seo  you
happy once again,'
The butler fust then brought in a lamp,
snd they oould Bee tho love light beaming
from her eyes,
CHAPTER XXII.
AT THE SII.BNT DOOR.
Even as Percy Guest rushed at his
friend's door to bring one foot against the
lock with all his might, he felt the futility
of the proceeding. For he know how solid
the old oak outer panels had boen made;
but he did not pause, and as his foot atruck
against It there was a dull sound���nothing
more.
Guest drew back again, fully impressed
by the hopelessness of hia proceedings, for
the outor door opened toward him, and the
effect of his next thrust was only to drive
it against the jamb.
He was recoiling again, with hia muscles
quivering from tho violence of hia effort*,
when Miss Jerrold caught his arm.
"Mr, Guest," sho suid firmly, "thin in
madness. You will bring a crowd of pej-
plo about us, and only wuikmeu could open
lhat door,"
(iueat hesitated a moment or two.
"Stop 1" he said. "His Iriend, Mr.
Brettison, Is in the next chambers, perhapa.
I'll go and see."
"Game, Rebecca," mod tho admiral
scornfully; we have no business here."
He hold out his arm,but hia sister thrust
it away.
"Yob; we have buaineaa here," ahe aairi.
"If, aa Mr. Gueat suspects, some aooidnnt
has befallen Malcolm Stratton, would you
care to meet Myra without having beon
thore ?"
She whispered this to her   brother while
Gue.it   had gone to BretUaon'B door,
dch ho knocked sharply.
Tlio  admiral turned fiercely upon hia
sister, hut ahe did not shrink.
You know it's right," sho said. "Ite
rcaaonable, Mark. Malcolm Stratton could
not have inaultcd ua all like this."
"I can't make him hear," said Guoat,
after a aecond sharp summons at Brottison'a
door. "I muat fetch up a carpenter and
make him force open this door,"
" You havo no right to proceed to such
violent measures, Mr. Guost,"
" Then I shall assume lho right, sir, I
believe that my friend lies behind that
door wounded or murdered for the sake of
the money he had ready for hia wedding
trip, and do you think 1 am going to stand
on punctilio at a time like thia ?"
Miss Jerrold lookod very while and faint
as ahe aaid quietly :
" Ho ia quite right, Mark,"
"Get workmen, then, in Heaven's namo,
air, or the police."
Guest took a atop toward tho stairs but
turned again. "1 don't like tho expose,
sir," he aaid sharply. "There might he
reasons why I should repent going.
"But you must havo tho door opened at
once," cried   Sir Mark,   now  onco   more
growing excited, aa if Guoai'a manner wu
contagious.
Guest drew hiB hand   over lhe  door in
h of a hold tu try and drag il toward
him, ending by tftirualiug it in by the letter
slit and givim- it a vigorous ahake.
He withdrew it, shaking hia head, and
paused, for steps were heard. But thoy
���tailed the doorway at the bottom of the
building and died away, while, as he listened, all seemed to be silent upatairs and
.town.
"We must have a carpenter." he cried
alond; and, once more placing hia ear to
the letter slit, he listened, and then came
away to wheie Sir Mark stood.
" I'm certain 1 heard breathing within
there," he whispered. " Someone is listening, snd I'm sure there ia something
wrong ; but I don't like to leave you here
alone, Sir Mark."
"Why?''
"In oase some scoundrel should make a
sudden rush out and escape.*'
"Fetch a policeman," said Sir Mark
sturdily. " Let him try it while you are
gone."
At that moment, Guest uttered an eager
cry, and thrust his hand into his pocket.
" I'd forgotten that," be said, in answer
to Miss Jerrold's inquiring look; "and I
don't know now that It will fit."
He had takeu out his latchkey on tho
chance of that whioh fitted the lock of one
set of chambers fitting that of another,
snd, thrusting it into the keyhole, he waB
in the aot of turning it when, as if someone
had boen listening to every word and aat,
a bolt was suddenly shot back, snd the
door thrown open sgainst Quest's chest.
He started back in astonishment, for the. e,
in the dark opening, stood Malcolm Stratton, his faoo of a sickly sallow, a strange
look in his eyes, and a general aspect of his
have suddenly turned ten years older,
startling all present.
"What do you want ?" he said harshly.
The question waa so sudden that Guost
was stunned into muteness, but thB admiral
stepped forward fiercely.
"You���you despicable scoundrel I" he
roared ; and as Stratton stepped back the
old man followed him quickly Into the
room, and caught him by the throat.
"Mark 1 Mark 1 criod Mias Jerrold, tot-
lowing to seize her brother's arm, while
Guest, relieved beyond measure at finding
his friend in the flesh, instead of his murderer, hurriedly entered and closed the
outer door.
"Stand aside, woman 1" cried the
admiral, fiercely wrestling himself free
in ungovernable rage on seeing the
man who had caused the morning's trouble
standing there unharmed. The fact of
Stratton being uninjured and making so
insulting a demand half maddened him,
and, teb.iug hia oollar, he waa bearing him
back, when Gueat interposed, and separated them.
"This will do no good, Sir Mark," he
oiied. "For everybody's sake, sir, be
calm."
" Cain* 1" roared the old sailor furiously.
" Yes, Mark, calm," whispered his sister,
clinging to him firmly. " Is it the act of
an officer and a gentleman to behave like
this!"
.   " You don't know���you cannot feel as I
do," he rased,
"For Myra's sake," whispered Miss
Jerrold quickly; and the old man made an
effort and calmed down.
"Lot him explain then. Let him say
what it means. A public insult. To be
degraded like this. And after what is
paat."
Meanwhile Stratton was looking wildly
about him. The sweat stood in great
drops upon his haggard face, and he trom**
bled v iolently, though it was apparent to
his friend that he was fighting hard to be
composed,
Guost turned to Sir Mark.
"Thank you, sir," he said. "There
must, as I havo said, be good reasons for
poor Stratton's actions. Pray be patient
with him, You see, air���you aeo, Mias
Jerrold, he is ill and Buffering. Now.Strat*
ton, for Heaven's sake, speak out. Vou
must explain.   Toll Sir Mark what it is."
"Take thom away," said Stratton in a
hoarse whisper ; "take them away."
"Yes, yes, but say something. What is
it���some sudden attack ?" Come, man,
don't look at me in that ghastly way ; are
you ill I"
"No���no. I don't know," (altered
Stratton.
"Thon you must have some explanation
to make,"
" No���no.   None.   Go I"
.  "Mark���my dear brothor," whispered
Miss Jerrold.
"Flesh and blood can't stand It, girl,"
he panted, with the veins In his temples
purple; and snatching himself away, he
thrust Guost aside and once moie seized
Stratton���this time by tbe arms.
" Now, sir," be said hoarsely, " I know
1 ought to leave you in contempt for your
cursed shilly-shallying, pusillanimous con*
duct, but witb my poor child's agonized
past before me, I can't behave as a polished
gentleman should,"
Stratton glared at him in silenco, with
the pallor increasing,and his faeo assuming
a bluish-gray tinge.
"I came here believing���no, trying
to believe���that you had been taken ill;
that there was gnod reason for my
child being once more exposed to a
cruel public shame that must make
her the byword of society, I ask you
for an explanation, and in this cursedly
cool way you say you have none to offer.
You are not ill; you have not, as we feared,
been attacked tor your money, for there it
lies on the table. There is nothing wrong,
thon, with you, and���good God! whal'a
this?"
He started away in horror, for the hand
he had in his anger shifted to Stratton's
shoulder was wet, and, as he held It out,
Miss Jerrold uttered a faint ory, for It was
red with blood; and, released from the
fierce grasp which had held htm up, Stratton
swayed forward, reeled, and feel with s
crash on to the carpet.
"He's hurt. Wounded," oried Guest,
dropping on one knee by his friend's side,
but only to start up and dash into the ad*
i'oining room, to como baok directly with
���asm, sponge, and water.
"D���nl" raged tho admiral, "what s
brutal temper I have. Poor lad ! poor lad!
Ketch a dootor, Guest. No, That's right,
sponge his temples, 'Becca. Good girl.
Don't fetch a doctor yet, Guest, 1 am s
bit of a quack.    Lot me see."
He wont behind the prostrate man, who
lay perfectly insensible, and kept on talking hurriedly sa he toik out a penknife and
and used it freely to got at the injury in
the shoulder.
" Why didn't he speak ? You wero
right, then, Guest, Some scoundrel has
been here. Curae him I we'll havo him
hung. To be oure���a bullet gone right
through here���no; regularly plowed nis
flesh, Thank Heaven; not a dangerous
wound. I can bandage it. But ton much
for a bridegroom.    Poor lad ! poor lad I"
He tore up his own handkerchief and
made a pad of his aiater'a, hut theso were
not enough. Look here, Rebecca," he aaid ;
"you'd better go and leavo ua."
" Nonsense !" salt) the lady sternly, "Go
on with your work, snd then a dootor must
bo fetched."
"Vory well, thon, if you will slay.
There, don't try to revive nim yet, loot's
finish. (- nest, my lad, take that knife and
alit ono of the sheets in the next room ;
then tear off a bandage four inches wide
und us long as you can. Let's stop the
bleeding, and he won't hurt."
All waa dono aa he ordered, and the
bandage roughly fixed, Stratton perfectly
insensible the while.
Bccca, my dear���Guest, my lad," said
the admiral huskily. "Never felt so aorry
in my life." Then, taking Stratton's hand
between both his own, ho said, in a low
voice, "I beg your pat don, my lad, humbly,"
"I don't like this long insensibility,
Mark," said Mias Jerrold.
'No ; it's too long. Has ho any rum or
brandy in tho placo 1"
"Yes," said Guost eagerly, and he hurried to the door of the bath closet, and
turned the  handle,   but   it  was   locked.
How tiresome I" hs muttered,   "Here, 1
know."
He dropped quickly on ono knee by his
friend, and thrust u band tnlu his coal
pocket for Ida bunch of keys ; when hia
hand oame in contact with aomething.which
he drew out with an ejaculation, and looked up at Sir Mark.
"A pistol !" said the latter, and th.y
stared in each other's eyea,juat ss Stratton
began to shims* sigua of recovery.
" Why haa he a pistol f1 whispered Miss
Jerrold ; and her brother's wholo manner
ctianged.
" 1 waH thinkiiiL' that you ought to have
fetched the police at once, my lad," he
asid ; " but it a as well you did not. There
are things men like hushed up."
"I���1���don't know what you mean," faltered Miss Jerrold, while Guost slowly
laid the weapon on the table, looking
ghastly pale, and feeling a sensation of heart
sickness and despair.
"Plain enough,11 taid the admiral coldly.
" Thore is something more, though,behind.
Do you know what f'he ciied sternly, as
he fixed Guest with his eyos,
" On my honor, no, Sir Mark."
" It dues not matter to us,"
" Cut it does, Mark," cried Miss Jerrold
pitoouoly ; " and I am confused. What
doea it all mean?"
" Heaven and the man himself alone
know."
"But, Mark, dear; I oannot understand."
" Not with thia before you plainly
stamped," said the admiral bitterly. "Some
old trouble���a lady, I suppose���men are all
alike���there was an expose imminent, I
expect, and he sought a way out of it���the
cnwardVway, and was too great a our to
take aim straight."
They all looked down In horror st Stratton, where he lay, to seo tbat he was now
sensible to their words, and glaring wildly
from face to faoe.
(TO BB CONTINITED.)
EXCITING  SITUATION.
How a Traveller lit India Was Nearly
���un liown by a llertl or Elephant*.
A traveller io India, who had in one day
shot a tiger and an elephant, was muoh
excited, shortly after his laat "kill,"at
being told by hia guide that a large herd of
nlephanta was sweeping that way, and
would inevitably run them down. Had
the ground been open, the mon oould easily
have got off in time. As it was they were
fairly pounded. In front of them lay a
mass of thick brushwood, mingled with
creepers and twisting plants; at their right
the grouud seemed atill more impracticable,
and at their left tho approaching ole
phants.
The only thing for us to do, Abdullah
said, wu to turn baok and climb a tall
banian-tree we had left behind us.
Thero was not a moment to lose. He
was a few paces in front of me, and had
already begun to climb, when my left foot
snd right arm were entangled at the same
moment in one of those cable-like oroepeis
to be found in Indian jungles.
I had got my right leg over a prostrate
tree, but I could not move further without
help, and Abdallah, thinking me oloae
behind him, had gone round the tree, and
was out of sight. To ory out would have
brought the elephants on us tho more
quickly.
For some minutes I lay, or rather sat,
there, expecting every instant to be crushed
to death, and unable to move hand or foot.
Nearer snd nearer the elephants came,
until at last I could feel the wind caused by
the moving of thoir groat bodies through
the air. The earth seemed to shake under
their tread.
A cold sweat burst out all over me, and
I could feel that I was ghastly pale. My
lips wero parched; my hoart aeemed to
stand still. To bo bound and helpless,with
a cruel death before one, is very different
from meeting death face to face, and fighting for dear life. My double'barrelled i iflc
was ou my left hand,but I could not use it.
Had I been bound with ropea to the stake, 1
could not have been more effectually hinder,
ed from helping myself.
The laat thing I can recollect wai hear*
ing an elephant crash through the underwood within a few feot of mo. I muat then
have fainted. Whan I came to myself I
wss loose from the creepers, and Abdhallah
was by my side.
There was not an elephant to be seen or
heard. They had swerved aside just before
reaching me, and fled trumpeting into the
jungle. The reason wss not far to seek.
They had scented the tiger I bad shot that
morning, and bad turned frantically aside
from thefr dead enemy,"
SWEET  SIMPLICITY.
A Prelly Little Wedding Wlfb-iuf Fuss or
Folly.
"It'a juat a year ago to-day," said ahe
who told the story. "Wo had been school-
mates, and she asked me to come on an
early train and help hor and her mother
through the day. It was nine In the morn
ng when I stepped under the thick wood*
bine that grew about the door of that angular little house on the edge of a Canadian
village. She had a broad hat on and she
said/'Oome.'

A TALE FROM WINNIPEG.
How Two Prominent Citizens of th-i
Prairie Capital Regained Health.
������0 Suffer*-.! from the Effect*, af Ualnrlf
Ami   Udliestlon,    the   'Other    from
Set-ram  rrMtratlan-Thelr Story  ai
Taid a Tritium* Reporter.
From the Y-Mnnipog Tribune.
The modern world is decidedly skeptical,
snd in the oase of euros by advertised
medicines, it ia aometimes remarked that,
they occur at long distances. Recently,
however*, the Tribune was told that a
Winnipeg gentleman had passed through
hn experience as remarkable aa any of
those published, aud inquiry into the
matter revealed the faot that several
prominent citizens of Winnipeg had boon
ireatly benefited by the use of Dr. Williams' Piuk I'd fa. One of these citizens
(a Mr. VV. A. Charlesworth, the well
tnown contractor, who during his residence in Winnipeg haa added to tne
Beauty and wealth of the Prairie Capital
by erecting some of its finest and most
Substantial buildings. Naturally what
Mr. Charlesworth would say aa to the
merits of a medical preparation would be
ftmd witb interest by the many citizens
who have met him iu business and socially,
hod a Tribune reporter was detailed to get
from him some particulars in the matter.
Mr. Charlesworth was seen at his beautiful
and coay home on William street, a fow
days sinco, and while unwilling to attract
fiublioity, yet for the benefit of thoae suf-
sring as he onoe was he consented to give
a simple statement of his case. About
thirteen years ago, while living in tho
southern part of Illinois, near Cairo, he had
aeveral attacks of malarial fever and ague,
whioh left his blood poor and thin, and so
deranged his system that for about ten
years after he was a sufferer from chronic
indigestion He came north after residing
there for aomo years in order to try to
shake oil' the effects of the malaria, but
without much success. He has not had,
whilo in the north, . another real
attack of ague, but every aeason he
haa had incipicut attacks, which were
only warded off by the prompt ��� use
of quinine. Bilious fever also threatened
In the same way. He also Buffered severely
from indigestion. Determining to make a
decided effort to get rid of his complication
of disorders, ho began in the fall of i to
t se Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.tho ad -e-
hunts of whioh be had read in the newspapers. Mr. Charlseworth began to use
tho pills in October, aod for tbe first moni h
Scarcely felt any improvement. However,
from that timo on improvement was rapid
hnd the effect marvellous. The cold of
the winter of 1891-2, as will he remembered, waa intense, and yet so great waa the
toning up of the system and the enrichment of the blood, that he scarcely folt
the cold at all tbat winter. His indigestion
was removed, and since that time he has
not had another attaok of malaria fever.
He continued taking the pills up to about
the middle of January. In closing his
interview Mr. Charlseworthsaidi���"However, do not rely upon my authority alone,
but see Mr. Fairchild, who has used   the
pills."
The Mr. Fairchild, it is needless to say
ts Mr. Frank Fairchild, lhe largest dealer
in vehicles and farm machinery in western
Canada. Mr. Fslrohild's name ia too well
known to readers of the Tribune to need
any further introduction. He was also
seen and fully confirmed what Mr. Charles-
worth said. Rome time ago Mr. Fairchild
suffered from nervous pioatration brought
on by overwork, and Buffered alao from a
dull pain in the back of the head. After
spending aome time at a famous Chicago
sanitarium he was advised to take something to build up his blood, tho doctors
mentioning Pink Pills in the things advised
At first he took a fluid preparation, but as
he found this unhandy to take with him as
he travelled, he decided to try Pink Pills,
as Mr. Charlesworth had strongly recommended them. He found great benefit
from their use and continued taking them
nntil restored to health, He has no hesitation in recommending them as a great
builder up and purifier of the blood.

EThe CURHEY FOUNDRY COMPANY Ltd., TORONTO. 3 IHE OTHER FELLOW'S UNCLE
It wu Christmas morning. The sun was
ahining brightly on thfi now-fallen anow.
It wu jaat cold enough to freeze.
The sleigh bells were ringing merrily.
The ohildren were having a gay time,
���hating and coutiug and playing tricks on
paaiera by.
One decrepit old man wu thrown down
by their tricks, and lay ao atill they feared
they had killed him.
Another eye besides theirs witnessed the
aooident and ita oause,
A young girl atood in the bay window of
the mansion before whioh the old man had
alien j another instant and she came run*
ning down the marble atepa unmindful of
her costly attire, the rich ailk that fell in
heavy folda about her form, the aank down
eiide the old man, exclaiming i
"For ahame, boys I Come, Eugene, and
help me raiae him. Nay, be muat be
carried.   Go bring Brown here."
A moment or two later Eugene returned,
followed by a large, strong-looking man,
who, in obedience to the girl'a command,
raised and boro to the house the inanimate
orm of the poor old stranger.
"Gently, gently, Brown I flaoe him on
the lounge," ahe aaid.
Restoratives wero applied. Tenderly he
wu cared for. And after a ahort time the
kind girl'a efforts were successful.
The o.d man opened hla eyea and looked
enquiringly into her face. She explained
the acoident and wu holding a glass of
wine to his lipa when a servant came in the
1-bom, bearing on a silver waiter a card.
Bhe looked at it and uid :
--Toll Mr. Grainger I will be up very
aoon.   Aak mamma to entertain him,"
A ruBtle of silken robes, aud Mra. Cameron glided Into the room and stood looking
with perfeot amazement on the scene bofore
her. Kneeling beside the lounge, alternate*
ly bathing the face and placing wine to the
lipa of the miserable old man, wu her
daughter.
"Florence!��� who!���what ia the meaning
of all this." she asked.
The gentle girl explained and her mother
uid:
"One of the servants could have attended
to him. If he is able to bo moved now you
had better send word to the proper author*
. ities and have him carried to his homo or
the hospital."'
"But, mamma, we are the proper onea to
attend him. Eugene and his companions
are accountable for hfa suffering."
The old man aaid something in a low,
feeble voice, and Florence's ear wm bent
oloae to catch the word**,
"He will go home he saya. Well, you
must wait a little longer and I will have
the oarriage"���
"A carriagel If you please. Florence,
���end Brown to procure one," Mra, Cameron
uid. Aa she turned to leave the room she
continued : "Mr. Grainger will feel flattered by your conduct."
"Send nim here, mamma, I know he will
think I am doing right."
A few moments more and Carl Grainger
came into the room. Florence'a aweet,
bright face that had been raised to greet
him, wu suddenly clouded. She aaw that
���he had mistaken her lover���for with an
expreaalon of contempt, whioh he could not
or cared not to hide, he looked on the suffer-
ing man.
Scarce had Mr. Grainger passed the compliments of the day, when again tho door
opened, and another young mau entered.
He was not strikingly handsome, liko
the other, but hia wu the face of one that
children love to linger near, women confide
in and men trust.
" Excuse me, but I have permission," he
uid. "Mrs. Cameron told me you were
entertaining; your guests here,"
man's suffering* yott in indebted for your
wlieV
" That day I saw ths difference between
you and Carl Grainier. Hia hoartlwenesi
frightened me, and! fled toyou, and grow
calm and happy," aaid Florence, whi e a
beautiful flash spread over her tace, ohasiiig
away the careworn look ofa few momenta
before.
"You fled to poverty, toil, suffering.
Oh ! my darling, I hoped to have sheltered
you from such,
" I fled from worse. Come, oheer up !
All will yet be wall. I did not tell you the
lut time I waa out I uw Carl Grainger
very muoh intoxicated. He ia living now
entirely on hiu expectations."
"Mamma! Mammal Krfu Kringle'e
coming! See I See ! Hurrah 1 Old Kriss
liked to have forgotten us, 1 guou !" oried
little Willie, shouting and clap-ping hia
handa.
Florence arose to look out when a knock
aounded on the door ; opening whioh ahe
beheld standing befoie her the old man of
whom she had juat been speaking.
"Come in I I am glad to see you.
Where have you been thia long time ! And
how did you And ua T" Florence aaked
taking his hand and drawing him In.
"I found very euily what I had never
loat, I've thought of you often, bui choae
to come to-day. It ia a good time to come,"
answered the old man.
'Come I sit down hen," uid William,
gotting up and oftring hia own comfortable
chair.
"Wait a Lit HI ait down I don't want
to get up aoou. Better know first how long
Constructing* a Plank Sld-iWalk.
In many vilUges and farming communities the sidewalks^aie constructed entirely
of planks. When this ia the cue it ll one
of the greatest importance that they be
properly laid, or decay or a tilting walk
will soon follow construction. The aide,

it muat have a broader, firmer foundation
than ia usually given it, if it is to re nain
uaeful for any length of time.   Th   ilKia-
Turning to mot Mr, Grainger, the young
man saw the sufferer on the lounge,
"Who have you here! Are you hurt,
air T" ho said, going up to the side of tho
-old man am- taking hia hand.
Briefly Florence told of hia fall, and the
look of admiratiou, nay, adoration, which
���beamed in William Hartley'a eyes aa they
���ought here ought to have been the balm to
���entirely heal the wound caused by Carl
���Greiuger'a look.
But it wua not, just then, for Florence
had thought more of the liandaomn Carl
than any of the other young men who visit*
���ad the house. Sho waa dreadfully disappointed to know him ao dillerent from her
thoughts.
The old man signified hia deaire to go and
when Brown returned with a oarriage
William  Hartley, with  almost  womanly
gentleness, uaisted him in and urged that
e might accompany him home.
An approving look trom Florence and he
jumped in, closed the door and ordered the
the driver to tho atreet and number directed.
" God bleaa you 1 You are a good child.
i ahall never forget thia day. Perhapa I'll
come to aee you again aome time," the old
man said on leaving.
The ume oontemptuoue expression wu
���gain on Carl's face, and he aaid sneer
inglyt
" Quite a dignified acquisition o Miaa
Cameron's liat of acquaintances 1"
A deep fluah inantiod her fair brow, but
���he designed no word of reply,
Carl Grainger aaw he had beeu indiscreet
to uy the least, aud endeavored by putting
forth hia most fascinating powera, to cast
���way the cloud that haa gathered on the
faoe usually ao bright, Carl's attempts
were fruitless.
But when an hour had paaaed, and Wil*
liam Hartley return* 1, theu to hia great
chagrin, he aaw a softer glow in her dark
���yea, and her lipa wreathed with smiles
that he had failed to draw out,
That night Carl Grainger, determined to
know Ida fate, uked Florence to be his
wife, and to her parents' great disappointment, ahe kindly but firmly uid ahe
11 oould not love him 1"
" Foolish uiri! Do you know that, be*
���idea hla own fortune, Mr, Grainger is the
only heir of an old uuole, who la fabulously
rich!" said Mrs. Cameron.
Florence's father'a dluppointment wu
u keen as liis wife's for he felt his foundation trembling, and knew before Ions it
must fall. And ao it wu ; before another
year had puaed the stately mansion was
no longer hia. He was almost penniless.
But he wu a true, loving father, and would
nnt barter his child's heart for gold.
And ao, when William Hartley won
Florence, he took her not from a home of
luxury, but one aa humble aa hia own.
Years rolled by, bringing with them joy
and sorrow, until aix had passed.
During the laat one clouds had gathered
swift and dark over William Hartley and
hia loved ones ; and so on Christmas morn*
ing, aix yeara after the one when the
strange old man was helped by Florence,
they were absolutely destitute.
" I wonder what has became of that old
man T" said William, during the day. ���' I
called a few daya after I took him home to
inquire how he wu getting on, but he had
gone from that place,"
"Do you know, William,
I oan stay," answered the old man, still
standing.
"As long u you like, We are poor,vary
poor, but if you want a home with us we
will not und yon forth. Sit down," answered William.
"The same I Unchanged 1'* murmured
the stranger.
When Florence went out to prepare tha
frugal dinner, the old man called the children, and listened to their haplng voices.
William wu watching, very muchamused.
when the old man's words were whispered,
and little Willie, warning to underatand,
lowered his tone, and ths heads of tho old
and young ware clow together, at somo
mysterious plotting.
The father'a amusement wu aoon ohanged
to the greatest amazement,wheu aoon after,
u Florence came back, Willie ran up, exclaiming :
-'Chrlstmugift for mamma, and papa
too I Krisa Kringle sent them to you I"
It wai only a little roll of paper. Open*
ing which, they found told in words never
f'lainer: " No more money. Mo mora toil.
ng 1" Many thousands of dollars tbey
held in their hands.
They oould not speak at first Hut after
awhile, when they poured forth their
thanks, Kriss Kringle uid :
" Your home is mine I Vou and yours
are m-ne I All I have is for you t You won
it six yeara ago, both of yon ! And that day
you had another friend wi1 H ��� or. I knew
nim by name before ; I leaned his nature
then, I heard his remark when I wu ,
ing out. Ha 1 ha ! He lost sometbing
then, didn't h��!" Eh?
"(io make your ohildren happy!" he
urged, ''And,myohild,takeihia, handing
her more money, "and make the poor old
folks you meet, and the little children who
are looking longingly In at the gay windows,
make them happy, too."
Oh, what a joyous Christmu it wu 1
For five years the old man dwelt with
them, and then he sink calmly to sleep,
loving hearts and gentle hands soothing

Feeding Fodder.
Corp fodder, to give the but results
must be exposed to the elements u little
u possible. If stacked outside, the outer
layer of sheaves should bo kept all winter
for protection, while those drawn from the
inside, u much u poasible, should be used.
Water-soaked and frozen corn-stalks probably represent u poor food aa any that
oan be thrown in the cattle yard. Aa aoou
after harvesting u possible the stalks
should be carted into the barn or stacked
outside properly for winter in suoh a way
that the rain will be shed. Top capping is
quite essential to preserve the full nutritive
value of the fodder. It is always better
stored in the barn, but with a good dry
foundation and capping, it will stand the
exposure pretty well. In feeding, this
outside ahould first be disposed of before
that in the barn is touched.
The smalt stalks may be fed whole, but
the large ones should be cut for feeding.
Even then, the cattle will leave some of
the hard butts. If one had the means and
facilities for crushing these hard wasted
stalks they would decompose in the man*
ure heap muoh faster. Some out the fodder
all at once in the fall of the year, but gen*
���rally it is better to cut as needed, or only
a week in advance. The succulence of the
stalks oozes out more or less when out in
small pieces.and thero is quite a percentage
of lost. Where a cutting maohine ianot
owned, and it is necessary to borrow or
hire one, the whole quantity will have to
be cut at oncejbut after ell.cutting machines
are so cheap that it ia quite essential to
have one on the farm where many cattle
are kept. If the stalks are cut when in a
wet condition they will aurely mould and
spoil, and it ia quite essential in havlngthe
whole crop cut at onoe to see that the stalks
are in the proper condition for manipulv
tion.
Butchering on the Farm.
In these daya of Jaw prices for farm pro*
ducts, a part of the farmer's time oan very
profitably be employed in butchering u
much meat u his household can un freah,
or cured, for future needa. There ia also
more or leas of a demand in the local market for dreaaed carcasses, especially of
hogs. It ia best to kill the latter duriog the
coldest weather. The night and morning
before they are butchered the hogs should
not be fed, u the resulting emptiness nf
the atomach and intestines allows the oar*
i to be more euily dressed and the meat
to cool more quickly. In catching the animals, do not chase them to overheat the
blood and taint the flesh, nor bruise or whip
them, u the mint is killed along thswj ,
and is Date aud tasteless. Sticking the hogs
through the throat lo the heart kill* and
bleeds the animala at the ume operation,
though a previoua well-directed blow on
the head atuna the brain and prevents pain.
In scalding ho��s, the boiling water ahould
be cooled conaidci \bly, for if too warm it
set* the hair inatear of loosening it. Either
have plenty of help or convenient apparatus to handle the carouses rapidly. Save
tbe heat by covering the water barrel or
tank whenever poBsihle, and stones heated
in the fire may be used to warm ihe water
when it gets too cool. The hair ahould be
pulled out, not shaved off, and a very dull
corn* knife or draw-shave will do rapid work
on the body, while a trowel will scrape the
irooves about the head. Hang up a oarcus
from a gambrel slick in the hamstrings,
remove the insldes u soon u pouible, and
drench the meat, both inside and out, with
the coldest water obtainable, so ss to cool
the flesh rapidly. As soon u the carcus
is thoroughly cooled, but before it is frozen,
out it up into auoh piecea u are desirable
for home use. The parts that are to be
uud fresh or for making headsheeae should
be frozen, and if it is not convenient to
render the lard immediately it may be
treated in the ume way, as also the offal
which Ib to be boiled intoeoapgreu*. Pork
for future un should be salted.
'Jo oure pork, dry ult la rubbed into the
cut pieces thoroughly, especially around
the end of tha bonea in the hams and shoulders, and the aalted meat la piled, skin
side down, for twenty-four hours in a
place where it will not freeze. Then the
meat is paoked closely into barrels, with
a quarter inch of dry salt between the
layera, and heavy weights, such u olean
atones, are placed on the top. Then enough
ult is dissolved in boiling water to make
a brine strong enough when cooled to float
a potato or an egg. The salted meat in the
barrel is now kept covered with a cold
brine.and left to cure for five or aix weeks,
according to ehe thickness of the meat It
is then removed from the brine, wuhed,
and dried off for us-*. It will keep beat if
hung up in a smoke-house, and smoked
occasionally with a smudge of corncobsgreen

In the summer of 1803 it wu my good

kept up his oheerful spirit to the lut, and
died in the early autumn, a little less than

Mme. Rubinstein impressed one with her

absolute devotion to her invalid son wu
touching in the extreme. She wu quite

party to amuu her son by sketching his

The United Slates Treasury gold reserve
Uuda $8,500,00'') below the reserve limit
of 8100,0(10,000. Siuce November 34,

At WeBhington.ou Tuesday, Mr. Daniela,
(Rep.), Now fork, introduced in the House
a bill authorizing lho construction of a
bridge across Niagara Kiver at Grand la-
land. The bill modiflea the one before introduced for the aame purpose by eliminating certain objectionable features.
Both raw and refined augar declined lut
week in the United States market, the
change in the latter being most important
At the lower prices many delayed orders
were in, and a fair business transacted.
Raw sugar is not in large supply, and
holders are not anxious to sell at the lower
list price,
Wheat markets arc dull, with very little
trading. Cables weak. In the united
States aud Canada the stocks in store increased over '2,000.000 bushels lut week,
and the amount afloat to Europe increased
1,256,000 bushols Manitoba hard wheat,
however, js in good demand, Boiling at 75c,
weat for No. 1 hard.
By mail received from Vokohama, information comes that all the tea houses in
Japan have siguod a circular stating that
in cousequeuce of euhanced cost of labor
and tea-packing material, they will find it
necessary to increase firing chargee 50c,
per peoul, and should the war continue a
still further Increue may become necessary.
The leather market tn tho United States
is quite active wiih increased demand, in
part to anticipate future requirementa.
Sales of hemlock sole exceed reoeipta, and
the Blocks of Union crop are reduced. The
tone is generally stronger for all grades,
though lower goods are in moat demand and
get relatively higher prlcea than the better
gradea, but because of their scarcity the
sales ofthe better grades havo somewhat
increased.
No very definite information regarding
details of the auspenaiou in St. Johns,
Newrtmndland, can be obtained until tbe
arrival of a steamer here with mails, which
may not be for a few days. So far all information received hu been through tele*
graphic despatches. The Commercial and
Union banks of Newfoundland have sua*
pended, but it is supposed that in the cue
of the latter at least the stoppage will be
but temporary and that arrangements will
be made to continue its business.
A contest for the control of the amall
iiaible .supply of petrolejin between the
Standard Oil Company and the independent
refiners, seems to be a partial solution of
the rise iast week. The activity, however,
waa entirely at Oil City, as only a nominal
quotation existed here. Ilefitied oil hu
advanced from 5. l.r) to al-out 5,45 in sym-
isthy with thc boom in crude certificates,
.'here is a natural reason for aome advance
in price at this season, for while the demand
increases, the weather interrupts the open*
ing of new wells. Reports from the field
state that Blocks continue to deoreue.
The struggle to obtain an advance in
prices in boots and ahoea does not yet result
satisfactorily in the United States, While
nearly all makers uk 2h lo 7 J centa more
per pair, and ahow good reason in the
higher price ot leather, jobbers are disposed to give very limited orders at the advance, holding that consumers are not
ready to pay more. In conse-jueuce, while
largo orders for noxt season have been
taken, there is mill uncertainty what part
of them will bo executed or cancelled on
account of the advance desire 1. Nevertheless, the orders received are on the whole
better than a week ago, and the shipments
from Boston, according to the Shoe &
Leather Reporter, have been 135,8911 caus
iu December against ll.t,5Hfl last >ear.
A recent test at Schenectady, N. Y.,
according to The Electrical Age, showed
that an electric locomotive can pull a ateam
locomotive���advantage of condition being
all in favor of the latter��� with eaae and
without apparent effort. The improvements since the World's Fair test havu
done this. Next in importance to the Baltimore and Ohio tunnel electric-motor
work, which is being pushed rapidly to
completion, iB the use of these electric
motors on the Metropolitan Railroad of
Chicago, which will aoon he in operation.
Many railway managers are watching this
teat with a view to adoption. It is now
expected tbat electric motors will be aold
to locomotive buibleis as headlights are
sold, whioh would enable any of the larger
builders to construct according to their
own designs. Kleclric motors arc being
rapidly simplified to that end,
Russia Advances.
There is one fur.damonul fact which
must be taken into account by those who
wiah to form a clear idea of tho Kmiiaii
situation. It ;s that within tho laat thirty
yt-ars Russia has made an enormous stride
in advance, notwithstanding thu atagnai.t
immobility of her political iiiBtitutioiie
She has become quite a now country. The
economic conditions which modern sociology declares to bo the keynote of
national life have ohanged since the emancipation of the serfs, assuming gradually
tho European type. Rut more striking
atill hu been her intellectual growth.
The bulk of the Russian educated ctau
is entirely Kuropean in 'heir culture , and
for tbem autocracy is tiow ns much an
obsolete, absurd institution as for the intelligent foreign olwervers who look upon
Russian tilings from outside. Hence the
deep-rooted aiiligmiiBin between the
Government and all the educated clusea
in the country, antagonism which found
ita most glaring manifestations in the so-
called Nihilism, but is much broader than
may be judged by this extreme manifestation of discontent.
For one man who joins   the   revolution
there are thousands of men who are secretly
io sympathy with tbo efforts to bave done
with the present regime, and to obtain fo
their country   freedom and reprosentativ
Govcrnmont, which would make the   Kit
sians masters of their own destinies.    An
behind them there are   hundreda of thou
Bands and millions of people who,not having
logio enough to fully adhero to a constitutional programme in tho Kuropean  sense
are dissatisfied with the present   regime,
and want  changes in   Lho  constitutional
line.

LABOa BEPORT
The report uf Mr. A'ex. II. Gray,
Deputy Commissioner of Conciliation
and Arbitration, is a valuable document,
He dispftes of compulsory iirbitntiwn
in a very satisfactory way, declaring it
impracticable for tSe reason thai " an
employer of labor cou'd nit be coir.
pelJe-I to continue Im work at .1 fin-iiv*
cial loss, as such continuance ��*onl |

wise for resenting any interference

we deem unanswerable; nnd wc d
look to thc operation of the N-
land Act li furnish other than evident**
of the impracticability ol such a method
of arranging difficulties. Hut ; e
chief value of the report is in tin. sng
geslion that tbe law provide for thc
compulsory bringing together of opp ,;
parties in cases of dispute for the [an
pflso of conciliation and settlement, nd
the investigation of the causes oi -��, h
disptlte, and the publication of (lie eri
deuce taken, with the findings, Public
opinion fa the higher and as he says
the ultimate tribunal and no one can
afford to disregard its mandates. It Is
likely lhat the solemn finding of any
legal tribunal would be sufficiently
binding to compel observance. Wrongfulness and obstinacy will generally
ftee before thc light of investigation;
if not in some cases, then the whip
of" public indignation will scourge the
offending parties, Investigation alway-.
results in advantage to those in the
right. It enables the public lo form
an intelligent and just opinion. II the
right is not at once established .it takes
an advanced position from which a further advance is easy.
PAT-DAY ACCOMPANIMENTS.
Once a month is payday. This in
a mining town where the pay-roll
contains many hundred names, and
tlie amount regularly paid out runs
up into the tens of thousands of dollars
is a tremendous fact. It is to the
town what the blond is to the human
body-its  life.
It is wonderful how quickly the money after it is paid to the men who
earn it enters into general circulation.
The merchant, the tailor, the butcher,
very properly come in for their share,
having advanced an equivalent, 'lhe
bus get a large share, far too large; but
this seems to be legitimate although
it is to be deplored. Thc steamer
payday week always bi ings up agents,
real estate dealers, and traders who
are anxious to meet the money-laden
miner and relieve him of his burden.
kaffies and sparring bouts are kindly
arranged to cnteh anv spare dollars
that may be left. Hut these arc not
the onlv "spider*." that spin their
webs for the unwary miner. Last
month and this witnessed the arrival
from ''below" on pay-week (thia month
by mistake the week following 1 of two
a- hungry leaches as ever bilitcd the.
unwary. In plain language lhey were
profession tl gamblers, and. the shame
of it is that tliey were . permitted to
coipC- p]y their trade, and go without
arrest. fThey were simply robbers as
no onc stooil the -.lij-liic*.t chance
with them. They boldly rented lheir
room, spread their net, found plenty
of lackeys to assist, and roped in
their victims. A slot machine or
-ambling device was among the out-
lit. It is a pity this was not seized
and lhe parlies in whose possession
it was found promptly arrested and
punished. There should be no mercy
-.hown these gambling gentry and
matters should be made so hot for
them that they wiil give Union a
wide berth. When a prominent farmer is robbed of his purse and watch
as occurred here last Tuesday night,
it.is lime some drastic measures were
adopted.
Our reading room is a pleasant and
pro table place in which to spend an
evening, and it is to be regretted that itis
not more patronized. The selection of
periodicals is an excellent one, ranging
from the erudite Scientific American to
mirthful Puck. The late reviews, newspapers from the different Canadian provinces, thc United States and Europe, are
there, and the cost of membership is only
one dollar per quarter.
IN THS SUMMER DAYS.
(Continued from page 1.)
the once thickly wooded heights broad
streets cross aod recross, the electric
light, soft yet piercing, throws a faint blue
moonlight tinge on steeping city and
silvery sea���and this is Duluth! Am 1
dreaming or awake ? I rub my eyes, and
open them again���and lo ! it was truly a
dream, or a prophetic vision, and the
shriek of the engine was the shriek of a
gigantic bird wheeling overhead and settling on thc top of a tall le-ttless pine-
while our little dog rover barked and
whined and tried to climb the fissured
bark "Ah I" says the professor slowly,
with an intense, serious j*;izc upward,"ab!
it Mover had wings he would get that
thing." Ah, yes, professor; there arc so
many "ifs" in this world; if now for instance my dream were only going to be
reality, I would immediately buy a lot at
Duncan Hay for thc benefit of my  heirs.
floating *iy mo.inlight on tlio Bay, trolling lor salmon, cooking our daily meals
in primitive fashion, feasting on wild bcr-
rie-*, so the days passed and nt last wc
turned h'.mcwanls. Lmding at W.
Stuarts, wc found a hearty welcome and
well spread supper table awaiting u��;
again tbey took us in most hospitably,
and the next clay thev escorted us as far
as Oyster kiver. Here wc -spent some
time angling for those extremely "wary
trout" that never will bite at my bait;
but it w-as rather too early in the season
for much sport.
Surely now our adventure*! were over,
we were nearing civilization and there
could be ncthing to binder us on our
way. 'Through thc twilight nnd stillness
nf the woods, we tattled and bumped
ovr stones nnd root-, most erroneously
yclept a road; and lhe scent of burning
pine and cedar, came ever stronger and
stronger on the night air as we near d
nur destination; and at last a light in
front of us, a great roaring noise, and wc
km-w that the forest was on fire. Some
of us were nervous the professor calmly
grave. Wc all alighted from the stage,
and looked through what seemed a perfect avenue of flaming, red-hot trees. Wc
must no through them to reach our jour*
nev's end'* so the captain went lirst tore-
enn mitre. If we go. at once, Iir said,
we may he able to get through before
anv of the burning trees fall. So with
the courage pf despair we set off. The
horse being led first, the captain drawing
'he bugify, ancl the rest of us helter-skelter behind; Somebody screamed when
a shower .of burning leaves fell on us;
somebody shrieked when the road itself
looked like a mass of red hot sparks; and
when the grand flames with a I'remontious
roar reacficdi out their long arms and
wreathed some tall leafy pine in a clinging
burning embrace���then we only flew the
ftislcr; and gasping, breathless, pale, _ we
re iched the green timber and mined, awe
struck, to see what we hail escaped.
There is no more to tell; when one gets
within the precincts of the city he P-*'s
gloves rip, straightens the cap*-, that are
awry, forgets the " Castle of Indolence, "
lea ves'dreams behind, and awakens to
llie stern realities ofa settler's daily life.

MAN >S THB MASTERPIECE.
And study made and keeps htm so-
"King in the new" says one, and as it
rings we hear the ever nearing chimes of
music never heard before. The rusiy
strings of some old harp swept gently
over by a whispering zcplier, amid harmony and universal cheers proclaim
man the master piece ���a bachelor perhaps, or perchance a cupid; in either
case without malice.
Dear Cupid, whalunboundcdsympaihy
stirs your philanthropic soul. Stand by
your youthful charge and tench him thc
folly of his over shy and modest ways.
And now O heartless man, to you my tendered wish would cling and should it
prove a hopeless case, then ���
"Sweet are the uses of adversity; which
like tho toad, ugly and venomous, wears
yet a precious jewel in its head. And
thus your life, remote from public haunt,
rinds tongues in trees, books in the run
ning brook, sermons in stones, and God
in everything,"
Let us hope, dear companions���some
have lived on hope. I am myself a way-
warcily happy
