esley Peel, ex-speaker, and his elevation
to the peerage. The result today shows
the following vole: Hon. Alfred Lyttle
ton, Unionist, 2,816; Jas. Duckworth,
Gladstonian, 2,236; Right Hon. Arthur
Peel had been returned al the previous
election without opposition. When asked at lhat time to express himself on lhe
question of Home Rule, he asked to be
excused freni doing so, as the prospects
of debates on the subject over which he
should be called upon to preside as speak
er made it desirable that he should maintain an impartial attitude His political
sympathies, however, were counted on
the side of the Unionists, and by thc lead
ers a compromise was arranged by nom
inattng Hon. Alfred Lyttleton, Recorder
of Oxford, who is a Liberal Unionist,
Mr. James Duckworth, the defeated candidate, is a radical and made his campaign on thc Home Rule platform.
IHE   SEARCH    FOR    FORTUNE.
By A.   Lindsay.
( No 3- )
Our camp was pbout 100 yards from
where the creek emptied into tlie Fr.,*cr,
on a lilile pear shaped flat���the broader
part al lhe nvimh of the creek.
As lhe bedrock s'lowed in the creek.
Dave thought lhat the flat might be easily
prospected. So we went 10 work wild
pick and shovel and cleared off the rough
top dirt until we got down to where lhe
gravelly deposit was more compact. Then
Dave took a pan .if ihis and washed it
slowly in the creek, working the pan with
a stirring circular motion, getting lid lirsl
of the coarser gravel, then of ihe lighter
materia), until nothing was left but a little
black sand, hut nut a speck of gold. Wc
tried pan after pan until we got tn the lied
rock which ne scraped but slill no colors;
then we worked into ihc bank up lhe bed
rock to where ii became level.
We had now a cut in about 10 feet; 3
feet wide and 3 deep; and as it was lato
we had to leave off work. 1 was too disappointed to eat, but Dave was cheer'ul
as ever, said the indications were good,
and we'd no doubt have better hick to
morrow, and have to rig up the rocker.
We had "time to catch a fine siring of
irnut in nui hule stream. These were a
welcome addition 10 our larder, not only
as varying the grub, bui also as preventing
ihe inroads oi'r healthy appetites would
make in die limited supply of bacon.
Next day we got lo work in the cut, test
ing the dirt as we went, till ab mt 10
o'clock when Dave, who was washing
a pan of it,'called out to come down and
see. Sure enough in the black sand were
luminous shining specks. " Is that gold
Dave.' " 'Sure Aleck, and I guess there is
more where that curie from. What do
you think of it?" Think of itl 1 gave a
whonp; then my cap went up. I shook
D ive and behaved generally like a crazy
man. Think of ill I saw the Iti tic* specks
grow to hundreds and thousands tit dollars! They say the drowning see their
past life pass before tliein in lhe cmrse of
il lew moments. The future seemed 10 1111
fold befo-e me jusl us rapidly till I had
reached the pinnacle of fortune,
Wc saved lhe liltle morsel of b'ack
sand and gold, get our rocker ready and
shovelled the .pay dirt through it for
thc rest of ihe day, ancl v.Ii*-n wc cleaned
the riffles up in the evening, found after
weighing them in our pocket scales, that
wc had the third of an ounce, or about live
dollars wor.li u( fine gold.
We lay down tint niyht fir our smoke
feeling good as ilieic sei Iticd every pros-
pect of our little claim turn i'pg out well,
Weta.ked on, 11 I the shadows nn lhe
mountain abmc deepened into night*
then a snore from Dave warned me t'n.it
it was late, and turning over, I dreamt
that my pile was made apd I was back
among the old scenes and faces.
Wc had seen no onc since we camped
but some dirty and evil smelling Siwash-
es. We didn't regret our soliiudc but
often wondered at it until we found 'hat
the mule trail came down to the river
further uo. We were nut of the line of
travel.
As we were working, the day after we
had made our first wash up, we were
greeted from thc opposite bank with,
"Hallo, mates! what luck?' "So-so," we
answered; "how is it yourself?". Bust
and hungry," he returned' "Come over
and get a bi'e then," we replied; and
over he came gaum and ragged. Phil
Grinder was his name, a deserter from a
man o'-war who had prospected up ihe
Fraser and Thompson, played in hard
luck till the Indians I nttlly chased liim
off and stole his tools and was now making his way back 10 the coast. Sailoring
w.is good enough for him and he'd stick
to it after th it. lie told us there were
hundreds of men at work en both banks
of the river, some doing well, others only
making wages, or grub, many nothing;
and that a good many were pretty desperate over their ill-luck aud ready to
steal or kill if necessary, and to look out
for them. We gave him some bread and
and bacon tn take with him, told him
about lhe Indian ladder nn the trail, and
with a "so long" he started oft*. Well,
we worked away at our claim each day
with varying success, lhe pay gelling bet
ter as we worked up the flat. We dug a
ditch, hollowed out troughs and brought
ihe water in over from the creek abov*.
and so worked to belter advantage; and
when we cleaned up one Saturday night
after the week's work, our pile amounted
to thirteen ounces besides a quantity of
black sand which we should need to re-
tort to save thc gold.
And now occurred an incident thai disturbed our tranquility and caused us unusual anxiety. On Sunday morning as
our grub was getting short we look two
ounces of dust, hid the rest, and went up
to Ilo-ton Par.
The little store and gin mill there was
a rough log cabin with the bar an J shelves
of split cedar smoothed off with an axe;
the stock of provisions on one side and
the liquor���two kegs of rum with some
black bottles���on the other; meals cooked
and served in a "lean-to" by a dirty looking squaw, They consisted of bread, ba
con, beans, salmon and tea. A notice
over the bar stated that meals were $1
and drinks 50 cents. Hanging underneath was a mule's jaw bone with the word
'URcpiiee 8l poofe

''Halo'   written on it.
This den was full of a tough looking
crowd who were drinking Ireely, some
playii g poker and monte, staking gold
dust 00 the deals; others leaning against
the bar while a sandy haired Scotchman
dispensed the drinks from the other side.
When we made our purciiascs and look
out our sack tu pay, those at the bar
crowded around looking lit the dust and
asked where our claim was; how much a
day we were making; and insisted on our
taking some of Mac's 'pisen" as lhey
called it. So we each had a drink of thc
"pisen" stood treat and started to leave
when a burly rtd bearded ruffian ���aptly
called Red by his chums���caught hold of
me by the collar and swung me round into the room again with an oath, sating
we should have one more drink and tell
him about our claim. When I refused he
shook me so that my teeth rattled. Then
Dave stepped in and with a we.I directed
blow sent him flying inio a corner of the
room. Wc left as iie picked himself up,
swearing vengeance. Wu went home
much excited over our adventure. Far
from constables or official protection every man naturally took tbe law iuto his
own hand-. So D tve got out his revolver
cleaned and loaded it read; lor an) emcr
gancy and Mr. Red in particular lor no
doubt wc h.iil'nt seen the list of him.
Sure enough, two days after, as wc were
busy on the claim we heard a pistol shot
and a bullet whistle past us, and as we
dropped behind a large boulder we saw a
little puff of .smoke rise from the bushes
that grew on lhe opposite siJe of the creek
on a point that stood little above the Fra
ser.
Dave got hold of his revolver, aad then
gradually worked away the gravel between llie boulder and the bank, kept an
eye nn tlie point and then wailed for what
seemed an age. Then another shot rang
out and struck the back near us, followed
quickly by a reply from Dave's pistol, llien"
by a yell and a sp'.ash. We gol down to
the water's edge as quickly as our legs
could carry us, and saw a blue slrrted red
bearded tigure floating out into the current, sink, rise, swirl round aod then sink
again out of sight to be torn and ground
to pieces against the rock.-,, perhaps 10
swing round in company with other
corpses m some big eddy for days and
weeks.

LADY ALYMER
CHAPTER II.
AN OHEXPBOTKD APPOINTMENT.
Ahout iwo moutliB after mis a aort of
avalan-.ho fell upon ihe little household in
Palace Mansions. It took the form of a
letter from Lord Aylmer, tlie old savage at
Aylmer'a Tield, aud as Dlok in his first
surprise exclaimed : "Now, who tlie devil
was to expect the old savage would be up
to thia sort or game 7"
It began by aaauriug Ida nephew that be
wan enjoying the very beat of health, that
he had not had a touch ol gout for something over three months, but that her lauy*
ship was in exceedingly queer health���that
��he was, indeed, thoroughly out of sorta*
and at preaent giving belli himself and her
mudical adviser cause for the gravest anxiety. Then ho went on to say lhat be had
just had a visit of nearly a week from bis
old friend Barry Boyntou���" That's Lord
Skevveralelgh," said Dick, as be read lhe
letter aloud���aud that Barry Boynton bad
just been appointed l.ovemor-General of
Madras, and that aa he���"ibe old savage "
-felt his nephew could not loae by advancement ut his profession, whether he ever
happeuod to come in for the Aylmer title or
not,he had put in a good word for him with
his old friend, with the result lhat Barry
Boynton had promised to appoint him as
hia military secretary.
"But, Dick,'' Dorothy cried, "that,
means India 1"
"Nnt a bit of it.my darling. Dick cried,
"I'll see the old savage at perdition before ,
1 accept it. I only go to India ou one condition���that I go ai a free man ; that is,
with you aemy acknowledged wife."'
Then they read the letter over again,and
made their comments upon it���she with tier
aweet face pressed against his cheek, he
with his arm close about her waist.
"The amount ot delicate information he
oonveys ia really remarkable." Dick
laughed, for Dick, by the hye.waaona ton-
daya' leave, and was jovial and inclined to
view the whole wotld through rose-colored
glasses in consequence ; "lhat is to let me
know that I needn't expect to step into hia
ehoes for many a day yet. Bless me ! if he
knew how little I cared about it,one way or
the other."
"Nor I," Dorothy chimed in ; "except���
except that we should always be together
then, Dick," with a soft touch of yearning
in her voice,
"But we are always together in heart,my
deareat," cried Dick, fondly. "And my
lady'a health is causing him , lho gravest
anxiety���h'm ! We may tako that with a
grain of Bait. Gravest auxiety ! Why, if
my lady was Ijing at death's door tha'. old
savage wouldn't be anxious, unless for fear
that she should get better. However, aa
they are in town 1 must go and inquire
after her ladyship, Sha'sa hardnaileuough,
hut she has always been good lo me in her
way, and she's worth a thousand uf him
any day. And then I cau tell the old
savage that he may uae his intiuence with
his dear old friend harry Boynton for
Homebody elae,"
'* But you won't do anything raah,Dick?"
Dorothy cried.
"Certainly not���why should I t But 1
shall tell him I have no fancy for India,
and that I'd rather Btop at home."
" But supposing that he aaya no," said
Dorothy, who in her heart regarded Dick's
" old savage" as an all-powerful being,
who hadit in hia power to nuke or mar
her very existence.
" Oh ! I think he will hardly insist, one
way or theother,"he answered easily. "Anyway, I muat go and be civil to my lady,
who isu't half a bad sort, and geutly
intimate my decision to my lord."
" Wheu will you go, Dick ?" Dorothy
asked.
" To-day, I think dearest," he replied ;
" just after lunch wilt he a good time. The
savage is never quite bo savage after ���* meal
as at any other time."
A bi range and sickly faintneaa he.-an to
creep over Dorothy, a dull and indefinable
aenae of forboding rose in her heart, aud
threatened to suffocate her. ".Shall you
be long there ?" she faltered.
" Well, if I am," returned Dick, with a
laugh, "it will bea new experience for my
delightful uncle, for I i ever stopped a single
minute longer in his house than I could
help, aince I cau remember."
Then he happened���attracted by h
silence, and the absence of the sweet laui
which generally echoed his���to turn and
look at her. The next moment he had
caught her in his arms, and was kissing her
aa a man only kisses the one woman thai
he loves in all the world,
" My love, my love!" he cried, " my
dear, sweet little love, don't look liko that,
What ia it you fear ? Not. lhat I shall ever
change toward you, or be different in auy
way, ao far aa you aro concerned ?"
"They are your people," ehe faltered,
"and"	
" My people I" he echoed, contemptuously. M i tin, so they are ; but you���you are
my life���my veiy aoul���the light of my
eyea, why, you are myself. Why, to put my
love and care tor you incompRii o hronein-
slant with what 1 feel tor ull my peoplo
together, would be too funny for worda, if
you were not distressed about it. But
when I see you look liku that, darling, it
hurts me so awfully���it curs me up, bo ihr��t
1 can hardly talk or think sensibly, My
dear little love, there i:i nobody in all the
wide world that I could ever pui beside you,
or ever shall."
"You are euro ?" ahe cried.
"I am quite aure,11 he answered, looking
her straight and true in the eyea. "And
now, my dearest, itia half-past 11 ; let me
take you out for a turn bofore lunch
time."
He always found it an easy matter lo
comfort and reassure the Utile wife *���**��� ���*
oved im*   no de-trlv,  sad,   a iiy
living so much alone and without proper
companionship, she was apt to brood over
the olrau instances of her life, and to conjure
up all sorts of gloomy fancies and dread
shatiows which might come to pass at some
future time, theae mists always yielded
hofore the irresistible sunshine of hia love,
biid they were happier, if possible, than
tliey had been aforetime.
In his innermost neart, however, Dick
waa not so eaay about hiB approaching
Interview with Lord Aylmer aa he made
Dorothy believe; and he knocked at the
door of the old savage's town houae with
rather a quaking heart and something of
the vague dread which he had coaxed and
soothed away from hie wife's tender heart.
Yea, Lord Aylmer waa at home, and her
ladyallip al3o ; and the servant, having no
Bpecial orders about Mr. Aylmer, at once
showed him into a pretty little room off
the smul lest of the two drawing-rooms,
ami told him that he would inform hor
ladyship of hia presence And in less thau
three minutea Lady Aylmer came.
" My dear Dick !" she said, " I am moat
pleased to aee you. I did not know that
you were in town, la it true lhat Lord
Skewersleigh has made you his military
aecretaiy'. I quite thought you had aet
your facu against India at any price."
Dick Ay hn. r waa bo surprised that he
oat staring at his uncle's wife in speechless
surprise. She noticed hia look, und aaked,
wiih a laugh ; " What ia the matter, Dick?
You took as if you had aeen a ghost."
" Not a ghost, Lady Aylmer," he said,
recovering himself ; " but I certainly
expected to aee more of a ghost thau you
are at ihis moment."
" Why, how do you mean?"
" I had a letter from Lord Aylmer thia
morning, and he said that you were ill,"
" 111! I ?' she echoed. " Nonsense !"
Y<m must have mistaken him. I was never
better in my life.
" i couldn't possibly mistake him," aaid
Dick, firmly. " However, I'll show you
the letter, there is nothing at all private
iu it."
���So Lady Aylmer took the letter aud
read it, " H'm," ahe muttered. " I am
afraid the wish is father to thc thought,
my dear boy," she aaid drily. *' It'a true I
had a touch of toothache or neuralgia about
a week ago, en tirely because he was consumed with gout���though, mind, he declared
stoutly that he hasn't had gout for more
than ihree moutht- and persuted in having ihe window open all the way from
Leicester. But aa for my health or anyone's
health but his own giving him a moment's
anxiety-why the idea is ludicrous, simply
ludicrous. The gravest anxiety indeed !
H'm! If I wus lying at the point of death
his lordship might be anxious till the
lireith was outof my body."
" That waa juat what 1 said to���to my*
self," saiil Dick, who hail beeu on the very
pcint of uttering hia wife's name. However,
Lady Aylmer, I am very glad to find that
you are alright aud in good health."
" Thank you Dick," ahe replied, holding
oul her baud   to  him;  then, after  a moment's  Bilehoe,  she suddenly   burst   out,
Diuk what ia he utter ?"
" Lord Aylmer ? I don't kuow," Dick an*
swered.
" He is after something; I've known it
for weeka, but 1 can't make out what,"
Lady Aylmer went ou. " First by hia persistence that he haa not got the gout. I
had been married to him a great many
yearB, but 1 never knew him
'ellberately deny himse f tne pleasure
of gloating over his gout before. He must mean something by it, I
thought, of courae," ahe went on, wilh a
nonchalant air, "that there waa somebody
elae. But his anxiety about my health,
and his de-tire to pack youoff to India,
where he knowa you don't waut to go
make one think differently. In auy caae,
go te the library and aee htm, and whatever you do, my dearest hoy, don't irritate
him. Don't contradict him ; tell him at
once that you don't want lo goto India���
that is, if you really don't want to do ao ;
but if he Insists, take my most serious advice and temporize���put the time off any*
how���toll him you muat have a week in
which to conaider the idea."
"Yes, I'll do that," said Dick, riBing.
"Stay, we had better send to him first,"
said Lady Aylmer, touching thc button of
ihe bell. "Ye*-, Jenkins, tell Lord Aylmer
lhat Mr. Aylmer is here and wishes to see
him."
������Beat to treat him in the imperial way
that aatiafies him," said her ladyship to
Dick, ua the man cloBed tho door behind
him, "I always doit when I want to make
In tn a little more humble than usual. I
don't do it at other timea, because he ia
eminently a person wilh whom familiarity
breeds contempt,"
Dick laughed outright. "Very well, I
will lie moa1 careful," he replied ; theu
added, "It'a awfully good of you to give
me a good tip oul of your experience. 1
have never been able to hit it u 1 with his
lordship yet. Perhaps 1 shall be more
fortunate this time."
"You may be. You know, of course,
Dink, that It was your steady refusal to
marry Mary Annaudale that set him bo
thoroughly agairat you."
" Mary Annandiile'a money," corrected
Dick.
"Ahl yea, it ia the aame t*iil g,1 oare*
le.-sly.
"But I don't believe Mary Annaudale
would have had me,' Dick declared,
" Perhaps not. Still, you i c-.*or gave her
a chance, did you? Now, of course, it is
too late."
"Very much too late," returned Dick,
promptly, and grlnuing good-humoredly at
the remembrance of now very much too
late ii was for him to build up the fortunes

lie turned aa the door opened agaiu,
"His lordship will be pleased to aee you iu
the library, Bir," Euid Jenkins.
" I will come," said Dick.
" And good luck go with you,'' said Lady
Aylmer, kindly, as he went. "Comeback
ami tell me how you get on,"
Poor Dick ! he did not get on very well.
He found Lord Aylmer sitting in a big
chair in the library locking ominously
bland.
" Good morning, sir," said Dick,
"On, Hood morning, Dick, sit down, my
boy," rejoined Lord   Aiymer, quite tender*
-y-
Disk  gave himself up for lost at once,
but he sat down and waited for "the old
aavnge" to go on with the conversation.
For a minute or bo Lord Aylmer did not
-speak; he moved his ieft loot uneasily, in
a way distinctly suggestive of gouty
twingea, and fidgeted a little with hia
ringa aud finger u.uls.
"You gol my letter," he remarked at last.
" Yea, I did, Sir; that brought me here, "
Dick answered.
"Ah, that's all right," said the old lord, in
a Beit-satisfied tone, "Great piece of luck
for you, my boy; great piece of luck. I
couldn't havo got it for auy one else; in
fact, I rather fancy Barry Boynton had
somebody else in hiB eye, though, of
courae, he couldn't, very well refuse me.
Still, of oourse, I had to toll him you were
devilish anxious for the appointment,"
"But I'm not devilish anxious for the appointment, M Dick broke in at Hat, I'm
not anxious for it at all."
For a minute or two the old man looked
at him in profound amazement, "Damme,
mr,do you mean to say you are going to
turn round on me after all the trouble
I've taken for you? Damme, sir, do you
mean to tell me that?"
"Not exactly that," answered Dick, atill
keeping Lady Aylmer'a advice iu his mind;
but" ���
"Then what do you mean, sir ?" roared
the old man, losing hia temper altogether.
"I mean thia," aaid Diek, firmly, "Up to
now I have, as yon know, always sot my
face against going to India, I hate and
loath the very idea of it. England is good
enough for me, and I went with the Forty-
third on purpose that I might not have to
go to India, or loae a lot of seniority. What
J waut to know ia this : What has made
you take a lot of trouble, aud put yourself
under an obligation to Lord Skevveraleigh,
in order to bring about what you kuow
would he utterly distasteful to me ?"
Lord Aylmer looked at Dick aa if words
had failed him, but preaently he found hie
tougue and used it freely. "Damme, air,"
he roared ��� do you mean to uccubo me of
any sneaking, second-hand motives ; Ton
my soul, sir, I've a good mine to write to
Lord Skevveraleigh and auk him to con*
sidet the appointment refused. But stay,"
as he aaw by Dick's face that thiB would
be the most desirable course he could take,
"I will do no such thing. Damme, sir, I've
had about enough of your aira aud graces.
Hark you, and mark what I aay ! To India
you go without auother word, or I cut olf
your allowance from this day week, every
penny of it. As you yourself Baid juat now,
I go lo a lot of trouble for you, put myaelf
under a gieat obligation to a friend in or*
der to serve you, and all the return I get
for it ie that you get on your high horae
and accuae me of second-hand motives,
Damme sir, it's intolerable���simple intolerable. And 1 suppose you think I don't
kuow why you want to shirk a year or two
in India, eh?"
"I don't understand you, sir," said Dick
With icy civility.
"No, no ; of courae not. And you think
I didn't see you the other night at the
Criterion,and mopping your eyes over ' David Garrick' afterward. Bah I you must
think I'm a fool'"
For a moment Dick was Btartled, but he
did uot show it by hia manuer in the least.
"Well, sir," he said quietly. " 1 have never
beeu in lho habit of asking your permission
to take a lady to a theatre."
"No," the old savage snarled, in return ;
"nor when you wanted to st*rt housekeeping in Palace Mansions either/'
"No, sir," Baid Dick firmly ; "nor when I
wanted to start housekeeping, either."
And that v*a> why you refused to marry
Mary Annandale ?" Lord Aylrner Snapped,
"Not at all, 1 refused to marry Miaa Annandale because 1 did not care about Miss
Annaudale."
"Bah!" grunted the old man, in a fury.
"I suppose you believe in all that rot about
marrying for love."
"Moat certainly I do."
"And you mean to do it?"
*-1 don't mean to marry anybody at preaent," said Dick, coolly, He felt more of a
sneak thau he had ever felt in all hia life
to leave the old man in hia belief that hia
dear little Dorothy waa leas to him than
ahe waa, yet he kuew that for her sake, for
the sake of her actual bodily welfare, he
could not afford to have an open declaration of war juat theu. Sneak or no sneak,
he must manage to put the time on a little
until the child had come, and all was well
with Dorothy.
Lord Aiymer rose from hia chair in a rage
of tottering fury. " Listen to me, sir," he
thundered. It may he all very pretty and
idyllic and all that, but you wouldn't marry
the woman 1 chose tor you, and now you
ahall go to India to pay for it. It's no use
you thinking you have any choice in the
matter���you haven't. I've had enough of
your excuses, and your shilly-shallying,
aud all your sentimentality, love, and all
the reat of it. What do you want, with
love !"
"1 believe you married for love yourself," suggested Dick, tu hia mildest tone-),
" Aud repented it before three months
had gone over my head, and have gone on
repenting ever since," the old man snarled,
"Damme, Bir, that woman is never tired
of throwing it at ms. If I'd married her
for her money, ahe couldn't very well have
thrown that at me���been a fool if Bhe had."
There waa a moment's silence, then the
old lord went on again : Look here, Dick,
you've got to make up your mind to one
thing���I mean you to go to India, ao you
may as well go wiih a good grace."
"I'll think tt over," Baid Dick.
"I waut an answer now," irritably.
"That's impoasible, air.unleaa you like to
take no for au answer, right away," Dick
replied, firmly.
"I auppoae you want to talk the matter
over wiih the young lady in Palaoo Mansions," Baid the old lord, in hia most
savage  tones.
���*1 don't think that would intereit you,
whether I did or not," said Dick, coldly ;
"but oue thing ia very certain, which ia
that I am not going to India without thinking tho wins and wherefores thoroughly
over. I will come again on Friday, and
toll you my intentions."
"And you'll hear in mind that a refusal
r.f tho appointment outs off your allowance
ut once. '
"1 will bear everything in mind," said
Dick, steadily j and then he shut the door,
leaving the old man alone.
"Well ?" cried Lady Aylmer, wher- he
looked in to the little boudoir again. "How
did you get on ?"
"Wo didn't get on at all,"Dick answered.
"He means me to go to India by hook or
by crook."
"And I wonder," said my lady, thought
fully, "what it ia that he hai iu bis mind.
N'o good, I'm afraid."
CHAPTER III.
DINNA   FORORT.
Afler this iute;view it was Dick's pleasant task to go home and tell the news to
his wife. It had to be done ; it waa useless his irying to shirk it, because Dorothy
kuew why and where he had gone, and
was too eager to hear the result of hia visit
to his uncle to let him even light a cigar*
ette in peace, until she had heard all that
waa to hea-" ;*o fact, as soon as he put his
key into the door she ll *w out to meet him,
" Dick, is it good news ?" she cried, eager*
���y-
Now Dick could not honestly say that
it was good news, but then he did uot wish
to tell her how bad it waB all at once ; so
he gently prevaricated, kissed her with
even moro than hia usual tenderness, and
naked her if she had been very dull without him aud whether be had boen too long
away.
Hi* Well-meaning prevarication had
exactly the opposite effect to that which
ho had Intended. Dorothy'a sensitive heart
went down to zero at once, aud the writers
of her sweet lips drooped ominously. " Oh,
Dick 1 it ia bad news/' she suid, mournfully " and you are trying to hide it from
" e."
" No, no. I am not," he aaid, hurriedly.
But there's no need to tell all our private
adairs out here for everybody to hear."
" But there isn't any everybody," said
Dorothy ��� "there's only Barbara."
In spite of his anxiety, Dick burst out
laughing, " Come in here, my darling,"
he auid, drawing her toward the drawing-
room ; " and you shall give me a cup of
tea while I tell you all ahout it."
" And you've not promised to go t" she
aaked, as ahe began to make the tea. "No,
.ion't trouble Dick, dear, it ia lighted, and
the water wilt boil in two minutes."
She had a pretty little braes stand, a
tray, spirit-lamp ond kettle, and with this
apparatus she always made the tea herself,
with much pride, and some help from
Dick, It generally fell to Dick's lot to light
the lamp, but today she was all ready for
him,and had but to turn up the light a
little to have the water boiling.
" There," she eaid, alter about five min*
uies, aud handing him a cup of tea. "Now,
tell me all���everything."
" Well," said Dick, finding himaelf thua
fairly up in a corner, and unable to put off
the evil moment any longer, " I went."
" Yea!" eagerly.
"And I saw her ladyship,"
" Oh ! and ia ahe up?"
" Up 1 My dear child, Lady Aylmer ia aa
well ae 1 am," he answered.
Dorothy looked at him in wonder. "Oh,
Diuk I" ahe cried, " but what a wicked old
man ?"
"Ah 1 I fancy it runa in the blood,"said
Dick, eaaily. " One man couldn't have bo
much original sin of hia own as the old
savage has ; it muat be heredity,"
" Then do you think you will tell horribly winked stohea when you are Lord
Aylmer, Dick ?" ahe asked roguishly.
" Perhapa���who knowa ? AU the aame,
thero is one story I ahall never tell you,"
drawing her tenderly toward him, "I ahall
always be true as tho gospels wheu I tell
you that I love you better than any other
woman iu the world."
Something in hia voice touched the ten*
dereat chorda of her heart, and Bet it
throbbing and beating with a sickening
sensation of fear. "Dick," shesaid in a
whisper, " is it very b ul news that you are
trying to break to me���doea it mean India
after all?"
Dick looked atraight into her clear eyea.
"My dear little love,'* he aaid, "I am afraid
it does mean India,after all ; but if it doea,
it shall mean India for ua both,"
He told her everything then���how Lady
Aylmer had received him, how ahe had
openly declared that her huaband had eome
scheme of hia owu to get rid of them both,
how the old savage had received him, and
what eud their interview had come to,
"But of courae," he wound up, "although 1
took lime to conaider it,my mind was made
up iu a moment. I shall refuae the appointment."
There waa a moment's ailence. "Dick,
dearest," said Dorothy, in a quavering
voice, "ia it a very good thing to be a military secretary to a governor-general ?"
"Oh I well���yea���it is, dear," he admitted.
"1 mean would you have refund it if you
had not been ^married���if yo.i had never
seen me ?"
"No, I don't suppose I should, I daresay
I ahould never have bothered to get suoh
an appointment, because, aa you know, I
hate the very idea of going to India, but
at the same time,to bo quite honeat,I don't
auppoae I ahould have refused. I don't suppose any man in hiaaenacs would,"
Dorothy drew her breath sharply, and
for a minute or two did not apeak. " Dick,
darling," ahe said, at length, " it ia true
that you are married, but I don't see that
that is any reason why you ahould not be
in your senaea, too."
" What do you mean, Dorothy ?" he
aaked, quickly.
" Well, just thia. Supposing that
Lord Aylmer had let you refuse thia appointment, and had not made himself die-
agreeable about your allowance, we ahould
bave to go on juat as we are doing now.
Aud, of courae, Dick, dear, I Bhould like to
be Mrs, Aylmer instead of Mrs. Harris,
and to live with the regiment rather than
in Palace Mansions ; but���but, at the aame
time, since there is so muoh to bo gained by
it, 1 would juat aa soon be Mrs. Harris in
one place aa in another, if I mnat be Mra.
Harris at all"
Dick caught her oloae to him," Dorothy,
you mean"������he began.
" I mean," Bhe ended, firmly, " that I
would aooner go to India aa Mra. Harris than
drag you down in your proteasion, and put
you at loggerheads with your uncle;because
he ie your uncle,and the head of your family
even though he is suoh an old savage as he
ia."
" But, my dear, my dear, do you know
that in that caBe I ahould have to go at
once?" he cried,
" Yea, I know that, Dick," ahe answered.
"But I can't leave you alone, juat now���
I oun't Dorothy," he exclaimed, " It's impossible ; it would be inhuman. Why I
ahould be ont of my mind with anxiety and
distress."
11 No, no���you would know that I was
proud and happy to be able to do something
to help you," she replied. " I would rather
that you were here ; but, then, I would al
waya ralher that you were here. Tha* is
not a new feeling for me. And I shall not
be alone. I shall have Barbara, you know.
Barbara will take care of me, and let yon
know exactly how I get on."
" No ; I cannot let you do it," he said,
when she paused.
" Yes, yes, yon can, dear. BesUea, it is
not only ourBelveB that we have to think of.
There is the child; and, although if we go
lo ludia together, we might be able to get
along pretty well by ourselves, we should
oot be able to afford to Bend the child home,
if the climate was bad for it. Why, Dick-
dear, we should not be able to afford to
come home ourselves, if we could not stand
the heat."
"That is true," he admitted.
"And don't you think," she went on,
eagerly, " that 1 would rather live aB I am
doing now for a year or two longer than I
would run the riak of seeing you die, perhaps, because we had no money to bring us
home ? Just think what I should feel like
if we were in such a caae as that."
"But, darling,you 'ion't know���you don't
realize how very different life would be out
there," he urged. "Here, very few people
take ihe trouble to notice ua, one way or
another, and if they uo, it doea not much
matter, But out there, as military secretary, I should have a lot to do. I should
acarcely have a moment to myself. I should
not lie able to go anywhere with you, and
probably very aeldom be able to come and
aee you."
" But you would be able to oome sometimes," ahe anawered, with a brave amile.
"Kvery one knows that half a loaf is better
than no bread, and if one oannot get even
half a loaf, it ia foolish to quarrel with the
slice which keeps oue from starving."
Dick's heart felt like to break, "Dorothy,
Dorothy," he said, "my dear, little, brave,
unselfish wife, every word you say makea
me love you a thouaand times more than I
did beforo. My dearest, I give in to anything that you wish ; yon ahall decide
everything, and 1���I will give all the reat
of my life trying to make you feel that yon
did not throw away your love and confidence
when you gave them to me."
So they arranged that Dick should accept
the appointment of military secretary to
Lord Skevveraleigh, and that two days later
he ahould go and see his uncle again, and
aud tell him the decision to which be had
come: Dorothy had begged bim to go and
aee'Mm the following day, but Diek held
out firmly there. No, he would bave one
more day of liberty bofore he went over to
the enemy and gave himaelf up.
"We will have a reat happy day.darling,"
he aaid, when Dorothy had given way about
imparting tbe news to the aavage. "By and
by we shall have more money than opportunity of spending it together ; Ut ua make
hay while we oan. First, we will go and
have a look at the ahops together, and I
will buy you something you cau always
wear till we meet again; then we will go to
some good place and get a little lunch; and,
afterwards, have a drive, come baok here,
dress, dine aomewhere, and do a theatre
after it.   There, what do you asy to that
real happy day ?"
Dorothy said that It would be delightful,
and thought���welt, with something like
dismay, that ehe should never get through
it all. Yet the fear of once giving way and
breaking down altogether kept her up, and
ahe went bravely through with that happy
day, which afterward lived in ber mind al
being one long spell of agony.
And after that she wore upon her wrist
Dick's trust gift to her���a golden bangle,
witb two words inscribed upon it in little
diamonds, which caught the light and
Bashed their message at her a hundred timea
a day���two aimple words: "Dinna Forget."

Tliilr Hal u If with a ling.
Sona of a father wbo pridea himself on
being a soldier rather than a citizen, who
has frequently declared that he would
aooner be in history aa a great general
than aa a great ruler, and aciona of a dynasty which owea its origin and ita preaent
eminence to the aword, it ia only natural
that the boys of the Emperor William of"
Germany should have inherited the military tastes of their anceatora. Every
prince of their house is ipao facto a soldier,
and they have been reminded of thia since
their earliest infancy. While their training haa been essentially military, it has not
been permitted in any way to interfere
with that softness of heart, that generous
impulsiveness, and that ingenuousness
whioh are ao endearing in children. And,
although they invariably greet their father
with the correct military salute, yet thia ia
immediately followed by a thoroughly boyish and loving hug.
Ib is on attaining their tenth year that
they first enter the army,aud ou the birthday
table of every prince of the houae of Prussia on that anniversary are always to be
fouud the epaulets, the aword and the aaah
of a lieutenant of the firat company ef the
firat regimea.t of the foot guards. Ab thia
corpa ia composed exclusively of the tallest
men to be found in the length and breadth
of the German Empire, the contrast between the tiny royal lieutenants and their
gigantic fellow-ofhcera and aoldiera ia exceedingly entertaining.
Of all the Emperor's sous tho one whose
military tastes are most pronounced is the
Crown Prince, and no one is quicker than
he to detect any fault in drill, any defect
in the uniform or equipment. Indeed, he
gives promise of proving eventually quite
as much ot a military martinet as his father,
William II.

cooking. Select the fruit that you intend
to use ; rinse it thoroughly in olean, clear
water ; then place it tu soak in an earthen
dish, with sutliaient water to cover it, from
ten to fifteen noure before requiring it for

which contains the flavor and nutrition of
the fruit; allow it to simmer alowly, barely
coming to a noil occasionally, uutil it ia

wholesome, palatable dish, resembling the
original green product in size, taste and

you will find it relished by the family."
" I am sure it will be, and if I could make

paBsed 3,341 vesaela of 7,0-30,000 toua.  Last
year the traffic was about the same.    The
important steam tonnage ofthe world goes
through that water-way; but   in   the   ten
, years ending in 1892 the tonnage on  the
'SiultSt. Marie Cmal   had increased from
12,042.250 to 10,647,203 tons.    And   when
I the vase extent of territory yet to be settled up in the norihweet aud the certain
! future for mining in Minnesota   alone   ia
' considered, the volumo of business  tributary to the Sault Ste. Marie ia seen io be
enormous in the near future.    The business
i has mcrenaed iu great leaps aud it ia bus-
' tamed.    Preaent ana future buaineaa, the
! latter assured, preaent   the   strong   arguments for the definite amplification of all
piana for giving the northwest a waterway
, to the sea.     It   ia   no   wonder   that   the
j northern   waterway,    rapidly    becoming
! inadequate   to   accommodate   traffio, has
| beeu instrumental largely in the reduction
, ot freights on ton mileage of several trunk
' lines between the north Atlantic coast and
| tho Mississippi from 2.9 centa to 6.39 mills
i betweeu I HIio and 1893.
I    In view of theae facta it Beems remarkable lhat all that New York   proposes   to
do to retain the big   grain   traffic   which
comes to her through the lakee is to deepen the Erie and Champlain canals by only
two feet!     For the empire state to have
shown a curious indifference to   her  own
business intereata Beems incredible indeed.
Kew Vork businesa men   seem   to   thiuk
that the i radio will oome that way perpet*
ually, no matter if the Erie   Canal ia   not
improved.      But it won't,      There is the
great empire west of Lake   Michigan   and
Lake Superior which must have   an   adequate outlet,   and,   if   it   cannot   get   it
through New York State, it  will get  it
down the St. Lawrence.    In  a  few  years
there will be 30,000,000   tons   of   freight
pouring through the great lakes and the
urgent necessity brought about  by   auch
conditions will compel abrupt, attention to
the construction of an adequate outlet to
the sea.    The present is the time, however,
to agitate the subject.
Washing Baby.
As deacribed by a recent traveler, JliiHsiati
babies, aa aeen in the homes of the Russian peasanta in Siberia, are very unattractive specimens of humanity.
" I looked curiously at one little
1 bundle," said he, " which waa laid upon a
. shell, another hung from the wall on a peg
; while a third waa alung over oue of the
! supporting *..ftt-i-a, and waa swung back
| and forth by thc mother, who had a cord
| looped over her foot.
!    " - \\ hv,' cried I, in surprise, - that'a a
child !'
1    " ' Of oourae, it iB,' repliod the woman.
���  What ehe should it be ?'
|     " Having learned bo muoh   in   such   a
, Bhort lengtli of time, I  had an  irresistible
i deaire to inspect the contents of the awing-
ine bundle, Aa a rule, I abominate babies,
but I thought I   might learn a liltle something of the habits   ofthe creature which
1 could continue contented throughout this
i remarkable opr ration.
I     " I looked, but turned away  in disgust,
! for the ohild was as dirty as a pig in a pen,
, I   could   not   refrain    from   asking   one
question.    It may have been  impertinent,
but I wanted   to  know when  it had been
I washed.
|     " ' Washed I'   shrieked    the    mother,
' apparently horrified.    ' Washed I    What!
Wash a baby !    Why, you'd kill it !' "

indifferent to all. -Lavator.
PRACTICAL FARMING.
Improved Winnowing Box.
The ordinary box or measure used In
winnowing garden products haB the annoying fault of being too low so that the peas,
beans, etc., will often bound back and fall
over tbe sides as they are beiug poured in.
A very atrong wind, too,  may  carry the
chaff and other impurities out of the measure and the peas, etc, with them. The
accompanying illustration shows how this
difficulty may easily be obviated. The or*
dinary box in supplemented by a wire netting fastened to a simple framework above
the box. Thia framework widens out from
the box so that a much wider mouth is
provided and less dauger incurred of
spilling the peas or beans over the sidi
The box is made much deeper in thia simple fashion, and the fine chaff and diiBt is
given plenty of room lo blow away through
the netting's meshes.
Care of Sows and Pigs.
Prices for hogs have advanced somewhat
recently, and, although not high, they now
give a margin of profit to feeders in many
sections. By far the largeat numbers of
litters of piga are farrowed during about
two months, from the latter part of March
uutil the latter part of May. Where there
are good facilties for caring for them, early
dropped litters have matked advantages,
but for many farmera there is greater pro-
tit, oue year with another, from the
practice of not having the sows drop their
litters until the weather haa become
reasonably warm and well settled. Young
piga are very susceptible to cold, especially
to wet and cold combined. Au intelligent
farmer iu central Illinois has aaid he haa
fouud he had more "pounds of pig" in tbe
fall, if lhey had dropped about the firat of
May, than if they came a month earlier.
A large number of the earlier liners died
or became "stunted," Thoae which did
well, of course, made a greater growth and
were ready for market earlier iu the fall or
winter. Sudden change in the weather is
hard on young pigs, unless they are well
housed. Many successful hog raiBers prefer
to have the pigs dropped in the open field
or largo lots, if they come when the weather
is warm.
Tho opinion Beems to be growing that
large and costly hog houses are neither
necessary nor generally profitable, that is,
for farmera who raiae pija for pork-making,
and not for Bale for breeding purposes.
Some very successful men use single
"hoiu-es" for each sow aud litter, making
them in an A shape, often without flooring.
The practice of allowing the bows to
become quite poor while suckling ia still
common. This is of doubtful economy. It
iB a rule with very few exceptions of recent
years that prices for hogs are higher from
about tbe middle of September up to aomo
time in the early part or October than at
any later season for aome months. It ia
Impracticable to have thospring pigs ready
for thia market, hut the sows oan be, if
they are well fed while suckling, the piga
weaned when not over eight weeks old, and
the sows then fattened as rapidly us poaaible. It not infrequently happens that
a aow would aell for more money in September than ahe is afterwards aold for in
November.
While it is very deairable that both aowa
and pigs should have graaa,or better,clover,
it iB a mistake to require them to make
thia their chief food, Eapooially if they
have a good clover paature, corn may be
fed freely. Middlings made into slop is u
capital food. Oata haa ita advantages but
it is not usually a cheap food for hoga at
any age. Where there is plenty of skimmed milk, corn answers admirably. The
value of skimmed milk for piga is often
undereatiinated, but it is not economical to
make thia the chief food.
It haa not yet been proved beyond a
doubt that it ia most profitable for moat
farmera in the central west to feed calves
and young steers up to the full limit, but
there iB much evidence iu favor of this
being economical in pig raising. While
there are exceptional o-iaes, it ia dearly
the rule that moat profit comeB from the
sale of piga or hoga when well under a year
old. Growth can be secured more cheaply
in summer and fall than in winter. Sometimes the price ot pork advances enough
iu early winter to equal tho increased
cost, but this can not be relied on.
Raising* Turkeys.
To those who have a large range for their
fowla the laming of turkeys will add considerable to thc iuome from the poultry
yard, with an expense Bcarcely in proportion, for turkeys are comparatively light
eaters bcsidcB boing good foragera and
capable of securing a largo amount of food
for themselves, after they aro aeveu or
eight daya old,if thoy have the opportunity.
Ono great objootion with many ia that they
ilo not bear close confinement well, and do
beat ou a large range.
Turkey egga may be successfully hatched,
aa well aa hen's egga in a good incubator,
and by almost thc same treatment. The
period of incubation ia twenty-eight dayB,
varied somewhat by tho care they nave
received and tbo freshness ofthe eggs used,
Strictly fresh egga will hatch several hours,
or from one to two daya earlier than will
those that are somewhat stale.
Few care to hatch chickena tor hroilera,
with the incubator, later than April 1, but
turkeyb may be hatched after this. The
idea has gotten abroad that the young
turkey chicka are difficult to raiae. They
are tender, and will not, wheu young, bear
either   cold or wot,   but aside from   that
they ars more healthy���tbat Is���they are
subject to fewer diseases than are hens.
With proper care, as large a percentage
of those hatched may be raised, as are
raised from an equal number of young
chickens. For the firat few days they
ahould be ted on hard-boiled tg*-, chopped
rim-, mixed with bread crumbs and bread
soaked iu new milk ; later, crushed oatB,
wheat, eto,, nn.y be given, tbut not raw
coin or Indian meal), and curds from sour
milk and buttermilk.
Tney should be confined in aome dry and
sheltered place until tbey are three or four
weeka old. If hatched bya hen, put them
in a coop and if hatched by en incubator,
put in the brooding pen, then if the flock
is in good oondition, gradually allow their
freedom. Let them out a short time each
day when the weather is favorable and increase the time until they are eight weeks
old, theu allow them to ruu.
Overstocking.
It is a disadvantage at any time to have
too much atock on the farm, and especially
so during the summer when pasturage is
largely depended upon for feeding. Whenever so much atook ie kept that the pastures
are eaten down to any extent a fair ��� rowth
cannot be secured, not only will the slock
fail to grew as they should because of
insufficient feed, but tho pastures will not
be able to supply anything like the full
amount of feed that they otherwise would,
so that a double Iobs ia sustained. If what
stock is kept, that tbe pastures will feed to
a good advantage during the best part of
the growing season, either one of two plans
ahould be followed; the pastures should be
divided so that while one is being pastured
down another can be growing, or aow or
plant a sufficient acreage of aome one or two
oropa so that in caae they are needed they
can be cut off and fed.
With all Btock it iB quite an item to feed
and care for so as to keep in a good, thrifty
condition. During what may be termed
the growing season good pasturage is not
only the beat but the cheapest feed that
oan be supplied, but there should be a
sufficient quantity so that the atook can
satisfy their appetite without too muoh
tramping.
When the pastures are overstocked the
stook will not make a thrifty growth and
in consequence a longer time is required to
mature. The nearer the right number of
stock that the farm can oarry to good advantage the better the results in almoat
every way.
It ib a Iobb or disadvantage to have more
than thiB, as under what may be termed
average conditions it does not pay to buy
feed for stock on the farm to any considerable amount as on the other hand it is
not advisable to allow even pasturage to be
wasted.
TOBACCO AND LITERATURE.
Men of Letters iilvldnl In Their Opinion
or Ihe Weed.
Tho following from Edmund Yatea'
"Recollections" appeared in a London
periodical: "Mr. Gladstone'detests'tobacco;
Mathew Arnold 'abusea' it; Mr. Rusk in
hatea the man wbo 'pollutes tbe pure air of
the morning with cigar smoke.1 But are
we not consoled for the abstinence of theae
great men by thu devotion of othera of
eminence ? Thackeray once declared that
he did not despair to aee a 'bishop lolling
out of the Athena-urn with a cheroot in his
mouth, or, at any rate, a pipe stuck in his
shovel hat.' But it we have not a smoking
bishop we have a smoking poet laureate
(alluding to the late Lord Tennyson) familiar with tobaccos, Latakia, Conne ticut
leaf, Perique, Lone Jack, Michigan, Killic-
inick, Highlander, 'or any of the Engliah
brands.'
"How did he take the gentle weed ? At
his feet was a box of white clay pipea.
Filling one of these he smoked until it was
empty, broke it in twain, and threw the
fragments into another box prepared for
their reception. Then he took another pipe
from its atraw of wooden incloaure,tilled it,
aud deatroyed it aa before. For years
Professor Huxley, like Charles Lamb,
toiled after tobacco, 'as some men after
vittue.' Ata certain debate on smoking
he told the story of hia early struggles in a
way which utterly put the autitobacconists
to confusion.
" ��� For forty years of my life,' he said,
' tobacco has been a deadly poison to me.
[Loud cheers from the autitobacconiata. ]
tnmy youth, aa a medical student, I tried
to smoke. In vain ! At every fresh attempt
my insidious foe stretched me prostrate on
the tluor. [Repeated oheere.] I entered the
navy. Again I tried to smoke, and again
met with defeat, I hated tabacco. I could
almost have lent my support lo any institution lhat had for ita object the putting of
tobacco smokers to death. [Vociferous
cheering.]
"'A few years ago I was in Brittany
with some friends. We wont to an inn.
They began to smoko. They looked very
happy, and outside it was very wet and
dismal. I thought I would try a cigar.
[Murmurs.] I did so. [Greatexpectations.]
I Btnnked that cigar���it waa delicious.
[Groans.] From that moment I was a
changed man, and I uow feel that smoking
in moderation ia a comfortable (nd laudable
practice, and is productive of good. [Dismay
and coufuaion of the auiitobacconiatB.
Roars of laughter from tho smokers,]
" ' There is no more harm in a pipe than
there ia in a cup of tea. You may poison
yourself by drinking too much green tea or
kill yourself by eating too many beef-
ateaks.' For my own part, I conaider that
tobacco in moderation ia a aweetener and
equalizer of the temper." [Total ront of
autitobacconiata and complete triumph of
the smokers.]
No Danger.
The peculiar thing about thia boa-con-
Btriator, laiies and gents, said the keeper,
ia that it requires a young chicken
about onco a week. It ia not dangerous
except when hungry. It is very particular about what it cats, ladies and gent-s,
and that young man that'a amok ing a
cigarette can approach the cngc with perfect impunity and it won't touch him.

HOME LIFE
Hnroe life to be all it ought to be mus;
be relieved of a tiresome monotony. It
is not enough that it be made attract
ive and pleasant in its surroundings
and that affection presides. Then.
must be mutual interests and pleasures
which are not bounded by thc four
walls of the dwelling which is called
home. Its aspirations and activities
should create eddies on a wide circle
of society. That charm and grace and
affection which sweeten and glorify the
hearthstone and make it thc dearcs,
spot nn all the earth, should yet be
able to send rays of brightness along
the pathway of many. Selfishness is
not the road to happiness and where ii
dominates home life its sweetest flowers
wither in its poisoned air The follies
Vanities, waste and uselessness of fash
ionable Hie should be avoided, but a lar
ger, healthier social life enjoyed.
As it is not good for man to live
alone, so equally it is not best for a
family to live in isolation. Ily sociibi!
iiy, friendship, and assumption of charitable duties the current of life becomes
broadened, strengthened, and sweetened,
and the members of the family while
thus engaged, become separated for
hours, sure to have on meeting, an add
ed pleasure. Though two lives biend
in one they are two lives still, having
to a degree independent desires, and
tastes. By being sometimes apart
they come to be nearer and dearer.
Long in the sunshine makes the shade
grateful.   Variety gives spice to life.
KEEP THE HONEY AT HOME.
It should be the policy of every sec
tion to keep the money, as far as pus
sible, at home. Local sports and amuse
ment should be provided. In every dis
trict there is a centre where such sports
can be held, and where the district is
large there, may be several such points
and by alternation all can be recognised.
No holiday should be allowed to pass
without arrangements being made for
its proper observance. People will of
course go outside to some extent for
pleasure, but as many at least should be
attracted from abroad to preserve the
equilibrium, so that a sum equal to that
which is earned in any place should be
spent there. The cities should be of as
much benefit to the country as the coun,
try is to the cities. In the spring and
summer time is the season to attract
visitors to the country. In the winter
country people may more profitably vis
it the city. What is wanted is a little
more reciprocity between country and
city. The city gets more than ils share
because its inhabitants a<e more alive
to their own interests���more enterprising. One reason for this is that they
are organised with municipal officers
and boards of trade to look after their
interests while the country lacking organization, suffers affairs to drag along
a. they may. Still much may be accomplished by creating a public sentiment in favor of keeping the money at
home. Buy at home instead of abroad,
buy of the farmers instead of importing
from a distance. Raise and manufacture
what we can at home. Sell as much
as we buy, so that what goes away is
made up by what comes in; otherwise
as a community we are getting poorer.
Apropos lo this subject, it is none too
early to bestir ourselves to make pre-
parations to celebrate the Glorious Kirst
somewhere in the district. Who will
start the ball rolling.
A SUMMER RESORT.
Manv places are now advertising them-
-elves as summer resorts.   Why should
not Union follow the example and keep
in style?   We have magnificent mountain
scenery.   The town  is fringed with the
rich green forest.    The elevation is high
enough to raise us above lhe dense, raw
atmosphere   that   covers   the   lowlands.
The air is laden with the perfume of the
forest   and   native   rimers.    Puntiedge
Lake nn tli. west is about a dozen miles
long,  of varying   width,  surrounded by
cloud Clipped peaks, and filled wi'.h gamy
fish.   Our cuter pott is jusl far enough off
to save us (mm the rt'.ise, bustle ancl confusion which attend the arrival and de
pirtuiT of steann-r-.   Tl e famous Garvin springs can crutpirc favoral ly uith
,-inv in lhe land.   Wild game abounds in
sufficient numbers 'n make the burner's
sport exciting.   Tin' hotel-, are of the b"si.
Fine ri*s  cai  be hail at a reasonable
price.   The drive over the forest raid in
to the valley is charming.   The market i-
filletl wilh rhnirrsl frulls from every vail
of lhe g'obe,   The io\vn i 1 fad is an inland flower, possessing tbe   fresh   frag
rai ce, pai I oral beauty, nnd delightful fas
cinatinn, denied to most places,   li tli"
lows has not the finish and mellowness ol
age, it has nevertheless the stir, brightness
and promise of youth.    Thc people art
not vexed wiih mosquit s, nor dazed wilh
a swamp rlvrtis.   The  regular payday
comes monthly so lhat pockets ars1 not
long empty and want of anxiety promotes
a repose nf manner observable to 'trang
ers.   The  favorable    circumstance    ol
healthful   attractive   surroundings,   arc
here climaxed by superior social  advantages.    Revclstoke, Hot Springs,   Hastings and olher places may, as   lhey   do,
lay claim to many points   of excellence,
but when ihese are all rolled together and
lheir extracted beauties photographed, en
larged and refined, thev make but a sorry
picture beside lhe commonest attractions
of which we may justly boast.    Other plst
ccs have waxed fat off tourists who might
have been belter entertained here if we
had not been so stupidly modest as to cover our light in a hu -hei.    Henceforth we
intend to remove the cover and let our
light shine tliat others learning our true
merits will gl idly visit us.

frequently arc better and cheaper than
reading notices; lhey iook more, substan
tial and business like, and inspire confidence. I would as soon think of doing
business without clerks as without advertising.
In dull seasons advertising and success
in trade are inseparable.
The successful men are those who ad
veriise the year around.
Ably and'pleasantly written pdverliie

EXCITING SCENE.
A liltle while before the train of excur
sionists left *"*riday morning a man and
a woman were noticed to have some
trouble. Thev were Italians. The woman was large and muscular and was evidently determined lhat the man should
not leave on ihc train. She collared
him as though he was trying to play the
truant hoy and held him back by main
force. Two or three fellows interfered to
help the man but the woman proved more
ihan a match for the lot and held on lo
her prisoner like grim death to a corpse.
At lasl the bell rung and and the train
started, when the women relaxed her
hold. It was all 100 soon for the man
sprang forward and succeeded, with the
help of some friends in getting on to thc
platform, seeing which the woman cried
in pure vexation and disappointment.
It was Ihen learned that the mm was a
bcarder and the woman his landlady,
He is said to owe her quite a sum for
board.
EXCURSION   NOTES.
Thc excursionists from here to Nanaimo remained over with a few exceptions
to see the sports on Saturday. The
steamer waited for lhe trains from Victoria and consequently they were belated
and only reached Union by 9 o'cloik
Sunday morning. They reported having
agoodiimein spile of the rain. The
steamer was met on its arrival at Nanaimo by the silver cornet band and all
reasonable attention shown the visitors.
A few went on to Victcria. It is-estimated that 250 left Union and there was a
goodly number from Comox and Denman Island, also a few from Hornby com
inj out in a boat lo meet the steamer.
Mr. Hilly Davidson's boy took the
second prize in lhe baby show. This
was pretty gooa for Uilly's first one.
Two important survey parties under
lhe direction of Mr. II. P. Bell, are to
leave Victoria next Thursday for the prosecution of location work in connection
with the British Pacific, their field of op
erations extending from lhe coast toward
the Ycllowhead Pass. It is understood
that Mr. Frye will be in charge ��f the
one parly, and Mr. Devereux of the
other.

PACIFIC KAIL SUBSIDY.
London, M iy 23���The Times ihis
morning 111 a leader on the Pacilic mail
scheme says that if there is one feature
by which thehistory ofthe twentieth een
tury is likely to be distinguished beyond
all others, it bids fair to be the develop-
ment of lhe opeo shores of ihe Pacific by
n movement ol civilization, which will yet
add another to the great civilizations of
the world, already seen on the shores of
the Mediterranean and the Ail.intic. Thc
article considers that lhe Government is
justified in bestowing an annual subsidy
of ^100,000 on the Pacific mail and cable service. It suggests that that amount
is now absorbed by Hcchuanaland and
might be liberated by giving Bechuanaland lo Cape Colony or tinder a protec
torate to a chartered company.

Manufactures   the finest cigars   and

Why purchase inferior foreign cigars,
j when you can obtain' 11 SUPERIOR article for thc same money One consequence of Japan's victory may
ba to open China to foreign trade and
civilization. The prospect is tailed with
delight by Europeans and Americans.
Chin* ib a thousand���or two thousand
yearB behind the times. Ite people have
long sustained life und found contentment
in a diet of rice and water and the simple
worship of their ancestors. Now they are
to be cmlizod ��� that is, their wants are to
be multiplied and they are to be made
happy���as all civilized people are happy.
Of the fraction of their life, tlie denomina
tor is to be multiplied indefinitely, so that
they miiBt by constant struggling increase
the numerator, or be extinguished.
The natural aptitude of the Chinese for
civilization is shown t>> the ease with which
they have surpassed their Knglifch instruct*
ors. They are already the masters of the
opium traffic (and opium habit) in the
world. Henry Norman* in his recent book
on the 'ToliIK** and Peoples of the Kast,"
informs ur that thr Chinese already own
the best real estate in Shanghai and are
fast acquiring control of the exchanges. Li
Hung Chang haB beeu called thc "Hismarok
of the east." He is alao the Cecil llhodes,
the "Nitrate King," the Jay Gould and
the Baroa Hlraoh���all in one.
Japan has had a taste of civilization and
likes it well. Her women have discarded
the beautiful coatnme of their grandmothers and are now happy with corsets and
nervous prostration. The >ouug men
going back after education in the colleges
and universities of America and Europe
have been able to teach their stay-at-home
brethren vices and extravagancies of whioh
these simple souls never dreamed. The
soldiery no longer wear leather armor nor
comic opera arma ; the navy ia built on the
latest models. When with these tokens of
advanced living the Japanese drove the
uncivilized hordes of China before them,
civilization patted itself on the back. But
after the massacre at Port Arthur civilization held its peace.
Now we are going to Bend the machinery
of civilization into China and teach the
Tartar hordes the use of our engines o
peace and war. With their gifts of mimi
cry they will not be long in learning, once
the walls of conservatism are broken down.
So many blades of grass will grow where
one haa grown, and the "Light of Asia"
will glitter npon a million new bayonets,
and all will be peace and plenty, aB it is in
civilized Kurope, and there will be no more
need of missionairea to China. It may
even chance before the end of the twentieth
Century that we shall have Chineae mia*
sioniries landing on our shores (armed, of
course) if only to teach us how well their
fathers were taught when civilization land*
ed on their Bhores.

Skin Grafting" Extraordinary.
Tho case of Fred Griffith- the 12-year-ol-*
Bon of John Griffith- who was badly burned
by tirecrackora taking lire in his trousers
pocket, ia the subject of considerable
In ter eat at Mnntclair, N, J. Tho
lower part of the boy's body and thc
left leg wore frightfully burned. Under
the most careful treatment tho burns
would not heal, and skin grafting waa resorted to. The cuticle that has been pluccd
on the boy has been taken from over 200
persons, principally men. Mr. Gibhou,
a young man who haa taken great
interest in tho case, has contributed
1,000 grafts. Up to tho present time,
10,100, piecea of akin have been placed on
the burned surface, and it is Baid by thc
doctors that it will take upward of 15,000
more. On Monday 500 pieces were taken
from three persona and grafted, The grafts
are hardly perceptible, each being about
the bize of a pin head,
HEALTH.
Earache.
In ite simplest form,earache iaan inflammation of the external part of tbe ear. In
oiher oases the internal ear ia attacked,aud
the disease takes ou a muoh more serious
character.
When an earache is long continued, or
the inflammation ia especially seven, no
time should be lost in seeking the advice
of some excellent physician or specialist.
Scrofulous children are most liable to aflec
tions of the inner ear.
An earache may start from a variety of
oauaea, like a collection of wax in the ear,
or the introduction of aome irritating sub*
stance. It sometimes arises from extension
of Inflammation in the throat, aa in scarlet
fever and meailes. Difficult teething is
said to be not infrequently a cause, especially when that process ia unusually pro*
tracted. The most prolifie cause, however,
is undoubtedly cold.
Inflammation of the ear ia uaiiAlly accompanied by the symptom whioh gives tlie
affection its name, but it ia sometimes hard
to distinguish the nature of the trouble in
the case ot young infant.!) who are unable
to do anything but cry and toss incessantly.
A close examination of the ear, however,
will usually reveal a Blight redness, especially of the canai,aud on pressure there will
be found extreme Bcusitiveneas.
The firat point io the treatment of earache ia to remove, if poaaible, the cause of
the inflammation. Should there be a col*
lection (d wax in the ear, it ahould be softened by a drop or two of oil or by in jectiona
of warm water or milk, aud then removed.
The inflammation may then be directly
attacked by placing hot flannels, either wet
or dry, over the orifice of the ear. If the
paiu is very severe, what ia known ae a
laudanum fomentation may be applied.
This ia made by wringing a flauuel out of
boiling water and turning a little laudanum
over the surface of the cloth, which ia then
placed over the ear and allowed to ateani.
Injections of hot water may alao be made
directly into the ear, great care being taken
not to force the liquid too abruptly.
If there is a discharge from the ear, a
mild solution of carbolic acid or borax
should be used every day until it ceases.
The usual duration of a case of inflammation of the ear is from two to three weeka.
The Art of Nursing.
A woman who is a trained nurae, occupying, after years of praotice, a auperiot
plaoe in a Loudon hospital, hai been giving a courae of lectures on her profession.
Her firat propoaition at a recent talk waa
that there ia no auch thing aa a born nurae;
the habit of observation wae a duty and
the basis of nursing, which waa an art only
to be learned by praotice.
Among aome practical utterances of the
speaker were : "A sunny sick room, one
that waa entered by the aun once in twenty*
four hours, iB desirable ; patients placed
ol the south aide in a hospital ward recover Soulier, by from ten days to a fort*
night, than those on thu north side. Plenty
ot light is beneficial, except in cases of
brain disease. Tbo leas furniture in the
room the better, and to keep it clean a
damp duster should be used instead of a
dry one. The air must be ke*|,t aa pure
inside as outside,and there was little or no
risk about having the window open, top
and bottom, if the patient were well covered, head included, and a good fire kept
burning. Night air ia not injurious j it ia
purer in a city after 10 p, m. than at any
other time. The bed should never be in a
corner, but accessible from all points. In
fever aud surgical caaca, a cradle had
sometimes to be used to keep olfthe weight
of tbe bedclothes; an impromptu cradle
could be made out of a bandbox; with the
bottom knocked out. Bedmaking waa the
grammar and keystone of nursing ; many
regular nurses could not make a good bed.
It was important to act with decision when
the time camo for any oOice, and not
to worry the patient by hesitation or talking of what was to be done; to tread
quietly, but firmly ; not on tiptoe, and
never to whisper to a third person. Kvery
effott ought tobe made to secure for the
patient two hours' sleep before midnight.

MR AND MRS. BOWSER
The Bowsers had juat finished dinner the
other evening when an expreaaman drove
up and unloaded and wheeled a big bicycle
to the baaement door, Mr. Bowser waa
called down to receive it, and when he
returned to the sitting room Mra. Bowaer
inquired :���
" Didn't the man make a mistake ?
There is nobody here to rido a bioycle."
" The man knew what he waa about,"
replied Mr. Bowser with a bland smile as
he looked out into the back yard.
" You���you don't mean���"
" Go on, Mra. Bowser���go on."
'��� Have you bought a bicyole V
���' I have bought a bicycle. It is pronounced ' bike' for short."
''Are you going to ride it and make a

' I am going to ride a bike, Mra. Bowaer, age or uo age. Something has got to
be dono for my dyspepsia, aud the doctor
also says that the only thing that will take
the kinks out of my legs ia to work the

And you���you havo bought a bicycle!'
gaapedjjMrs. Bowaer aB she held up her
handa in astonishment.
"Call it bike, Mrs. Bowser. Yea, I have
bought a bike, and what of it! What
ia there to be surprised about T"
" [ thought you had bought every fooliah
thing ever made and offered for sale, but it
aeems I waa mistaken. If there waa ever
a grown-up man that needed a guardian
you are tbe one."
" Mre. Bowser, are you talking to me T"
" Of course I am."
" Tben you waut to remember who 1 am.
I not only run myself, but I run thia houae*
If I want to buy even a balloon it'a nobody's
buaineaa but my own. I may bn a lunatic
or an idiot, but the general publio hasn't
found it oat vet."
" Well, go ahead," she sighed, "but I
know just how it will turn out."
" Yea, of course, it will turn out that I
will gain about ten pounds in the next
mouth and get aome of my old enthusiasm
back. I will now get into my old -mii aod
have a little fun in the buck yard. I expect
it will take me a oouple of weeka to learn
to ride the thing, but I'm bound to get
there."
" And of course you'll lay it all to me."
" Lay it all to you I Lay what to you ?
Mra, Bowser, why can't you look at thinga
in a sensible light 1 You talk as if I were a
child. There will be nothing to lay to you
or any one else. Instead of carping and
fault finding you ought to be glad that I am
doing all I can to preserve my health."
Mrs. Bowser had nothing more to say,
and as ahe took a seat by a back window
he ran upstairs to change his clothes. Ten
minutea later he had hia bike in the back
yard. He at firat looked pleased aud happy,
then he looked anxious ; then he appeared
doubtful.
** Expect to get a few tumbles at firat,
you know," he aaid aa he looked up at Mra.
Bowser with a painful amile, " but I'll get

���' Aren't you going to tie it up to the

" No, ma'am, you needn't como down

Private oyster beda in the upper Virginia
waters of tho Chesapeake have been successfully protected against oyster thieves by a
simple but ingenious device. The owner
of the beds, sixteen acres in area, crossed
them in two directions with five-eighth inch
wire secured to posts ut the points of intersection. Both wires and posts are invisible,
even at low tide. Thu oyster pirate that
attacks the bed is sure sooner or later to
lose his dredge by having it entangled iu
ttie wire, and thefts are rare.
THE DIKB ON TO?.
Ho went. He had noticed several different riders mount their bikes, and had
figured on an easy thing he made a apring
for the saddle, and there was wild exultation in his heart as he found himself Bafely
seated, Tiie wild exultation lasted about
half a second, nr until Mr, Bowser atruck
the earth with his head and his heels hit
the fence and the bike piled on top of him,
" Are you hurt ? Are you killed ?"
called out Mrs. Bowser from tbe window.
" Do you want to tell tho whole town
that I fell oil'a bike ?" growled Mr. Bowser
iu reply a* he slowly gathered his wits and
his legs and his aims and got upand looked
at her,
" But you might haven broken your
neck."
" Boah ! The wheel hit something in tho
grass, Everybody expects a tumble or two.
A fall like that wouldn't hurt u baby.
Haven't you got anything to do but ait
there and watch me ?"
" Is it any harm to watch you ?"
He didn't say. He lifted the bike up,
carefully examined it to see if it had hind
feet to Mi k with aud then con inc.ed it
twice around the yard to got up a fueling
of ir utual confidence. He would have
ohefffull ��� qiv n Mra Bowser $10 to retire
from the window, but us he knew sho

be bluffed, He made ready for another

to flicker acroas his face, but beforo it had

Mr. Bowser wabbled to the east and wabbled to the west and went over with a
great crash. He realized that the American continent was in the throea of an earthquake, and he yelled " Fire 1" and " Police I" before he atruck the earth. Then
he knew no more for three minutes. When
he opened hia eyea and aat up and guzed
around him, Mrs Bowser was standing
beside him. She had unfastened bis collar
and untied hia lega and sprinkled water
on bia face.

KICKED THE COFFIN ABOUT.
A Drunken 1 r-iihor h Brutal Conduct al Bis
Itaugtiler's Dt-iitli.
Robert King is a strapping hig long*
shoreman of New York city. King ia a good
huaband and father when he ia sober, but
when tipsy he ia ugly. His nineteen-year-
old daughter Mamie became ill of pneumonia about two weeka ago and on Friday
she died. Two daye before her death her
father disappeared and no trace of him
could be found, Hia son James and James'
mother superintended all the preparations
for the funeral.
It waa decided that the body ahould be
kept three days. Friends of the dead girl
brought flowers for her coffin, and they
sat up beside it on Friday, Saturday, and
Sunday nights. Mra. King aat at the head
of the cotfin. Her eyea were red and
swollen from crying. This was on Sunday
night, About 10 o'clock a heavy and
unsteady footfall waa hoard on  the staira,
No one paid any attention to it at firat,
as it waa supposed to be merely a belated
tenant of the houae returning to his rooms.
The unsteady step became louder until it
reached the floor on whioh the Kings live.
Finally it stopped In front of the parlor
door. The door was a little ajar, and
without knocking the newcomer burst into
the room. It waa the dead girl'a father,
and he was in a drunken frenzy. He staggered into the centre of the room and
looked around with a leer at tho solemn
faces about him.    Then he saw hia wife.
' Wife," he shouted, *' what's tbo party
for ? Say, what's the party for."
" Oh, Robert, Robert, hia wife oried,
what have you been doing ?"
" Say, what'a the party for ?"
The drunken man began to stagger arouud
in a circle and laugh in an idiotic fashion at
the people in the room. Several women
got up and went out, but the majority sat
atill. Mrs. King walked to her husband's
side and placed her hand on bis shoulder.
She meant to lead him to where he could
aee the face of the dead girl. The moment
ahe came within reach he grabbed her
roughly with both hia muscular hauda.
"Say, what'a the racket for t" he insisted.
Tho woman oould not answer liim, as
Bhe had dropped her head on bis shoulder
to smother her sobs. King getting no reply
pushed his wife roughly away, aud as he
did ao he atruck her with his clenched fist.
He hit her on the mouth aud knocked her
across the collin. The foot of the cotfin fell
to the floor, leaving the head still on its
atand. Tho people in the room
most of them women, jumped
up when they aaw King strike his wife.
He gruhb( d a ohair, and striking light and
lett with it aoon cleared the room. Even
his wil'e fled.
When King saw that he hud the place
to himself he atarted in to smash everything. He kicked the aolfin and it tumbled
tothe floor, the body falling partly out.
He kinked tho side of the coffin several
time*1,partly smashing it, and he was about
to pull the body out when Policeman
Haggorty arrived. Haggerty had been
called by a son of the drunken man. He
arrested King, who went peaceably along
to the station house,   where he waa locked
UP-
As soon an King was aafely lodged in the
station house Mre, King went buck to her
rontiiH, and with the assistance of the
neighbors placed the cotlin back on its
stand. The flowers were picked up from
thc floor and rc-arranued. An undertaker
repaired the coilin. King wae arraigned
in the Police Court. He had nothing to
aay and no ono appeared against, him.
When Justice Simtns beard the alrcum-
stances of the caae he discharged King to
give him a chance to go to his daughter's
funeral,

Among the remarkable Im .Is of New Zea*
land, says the Rovuo Francaise, ia lho
greenish-gray nocturnal parrot of the genus
Strigons, which Uvea in burrowii and re-
Bcmhlea an owl, and a atill more singular
larrot, thu Noslor nutabilis, which the
Englifh have come to regard ua adangerotta
nuiaanci*. Tho Engliah, aaiH well known,
introduced aheep tanning into New Zealand- as well as m-.o Australia, Now these
parrots have acquired the habit of perching
upon the backs of tbe sheep and excavating
holes therein with their formidable bills in
order to extract the kidneys. The fact is
ao much the more curious in that it cannot
bn attributed to au innate instinct, since,
previous to tho arrival of the English-
these birds had never seen a sheep, nor
even any animal of analogous conformation,
the fauiia of Now Zealand including scarcely a single mammal. We know, moreover,
that in entire Oooanica there are no othor
mammals except marsupials. There is
here, then,on the part of these birds, an
act of intelligence and even of calculation,
so much tbe more curious in that it ia certainly complicated with a phenomenon of
language or analogous communication. It
is true thut the birds aro parrots, but thc
fact is uono the less worthy of remark.
THE FIELD OF COMMERCE
Some Items of Interest to the Business Han.
In London, the price of Hudson's Bay
shares is lower at ��14.
The world's vieible supply of wheat decreased 2,388,000 last week.
Silver bullion continues firm, with Bales
in London at 30Jd., and in New York at
67c. per ounce.
Stocks in Toronto are quiet and firm.
Commerce is the most active bank security,
with sales at 137-}.
During the years from 1882 to 1884, the
fishermen of Lunenbnrg county,N.S., were
paid fishing bounties to theextentof$23S
000. Tbe increase in that period was almost doubled, being $18,274 in 1882, and
$35,318 in 1894.
Thero has been an active speculation ol
late in railroad stocks and the general tone
ia very atrong. Nearly all olassea of aecurU
ties sold recently at the highest prices in
thia bulge to date. The advance within
eix weeka is 6 to 10 per cent.
The Trade and Navigation returns for
the past five years have been issued. The
following are the comparative figures for

After an unsteady market in wheat, in
which the large exports from IluBsia and
Argentina, with reports of small decrease
in the world's visible aupply and generally
favorable weather, proven ted tbe quotation
from moving upward, there was a sharp
advance on rumors of heavy export purchases and a good milling demand. Deliveries of winter wheat thus far are very light
and cauae dilliculty at Northwestern mills.
Speculators were driven to cover contracts
when the prices atarted upwards, and a
email boom aoon appeared. Cash wheat is
now soaroe, and the price runa along about
on a par with the May option. Sales of flour
at Minneapolis are increasing, and a gain
in price is noticed.
The meat situation is still perplexing in
the United States. Prices of beef and sheep
have reacted slightly from the top, but are
still very high, lhe demand continues
good, and if tho Western speculators pre*
vent liquidation in May options, it may be
poaaible to sustain the high position. Livt
huge have shaded a fraction from the top,
hut are atill at a good tigure. Lard is off a
few pointa, but meaa pork holds firmly to
$13,50 per barrel. Statements of export*
for the year thus far show a large increaae
over last year for lard and out moats, but
pork and beef have decreased somewhat,
and the loss in butter amounts to over two
third e. Butter, cheese and ei*gs remain at
at about former prices, but milk on platforms has at last taken a turn upward, the
latest quotation being $1,22 per oan of forty
quarts.
The trade situation at Toronto still continues to show signs of improvement. The
better feeling heretofore noted has acted as
a eort of Btimulus.and fewer complaints are
heard. Dealers generally are encouraged with
the stronger tone oft he murkets,and thc out*
look is more cheering. The earnings of the
railways show improvement, and those of
the Grand Trunk since the beginning of the
month are ahead of the corresponding
period of last year, There is increased
activity in dry goods, with orders coming
in freely, but they are not for large
amounts. The business in hardware and
groceries is fair, and payments are a little
more satisfactory. ... A further advance
in wheat haa taken place, witb .sales ol
white at 73o to 74a Ontario points. The
deliveries are very small, giving the impression that supplies are limited, but at
thia season farmers are very busy seeding,
which partly accounts for light receipts.
Flour ia firmer, but prices are relatively
lower than those of wheat. The foreign
demand for wheat has increased, and
Chicago pricea have been advanced three or
four centa during the week. Some large
shorts have been forced to cover, and the
feeling with regard to thia market ia ex*
ceedingly bullish. . . . The hide market
is active aud higher, with sales of oured at
7c, aiul of green at fee. Leather is firmer
iu tone in consequence , . The money
market is firm, but no changes are reported
iu rates, Thero ia a better demand for
Commercial paper. The firmei tatoa for
call loans baa checked speculation to some
extent on the local stock exchange, but
nevertheless the different securieties are
remarkably firm.
Lost a Prize, But Won a Fortune.
.Much amusement was created a few day**
ugo at Nogen*sur-Marne, noar Paris, by a
raoa in which all the competitors woro pco*
pie with wooden legs. Some eocentric
person in the neighborhood had offered
su list an tial cash prizes to tho winners.
Among the competitors was a woman, oue
Mile. Collet, She did not win a prize, but
her boldness in challenging her male competitors hue not gone unrewarded. It
happened that u lawyer in the south of
Franco rend an account of the aflalr iu a
newspaper-and it also happened that he had

advertised that it she would cuminuuicato
wiCi liim she would "hoar of something to

could bo two Mile, Coileta, each with a

Spring brings renewed life and gaiety
to the insect world. Many insects
emerge for the first time from a winter's
seclusion,    and    all   seem    invigorated.
The average insect sets a noble example
to mau by hia unceasing industry and cheer*
fulness. These qualities are displayed more
conspicuously by the insects than by any
other division of the animal world. Con*
si Ier, for instance, the cheerfulness of the
grasshopper and his relatives,who sing perpetually,ami the industry of the ant,who is
alwaya engaged in aome labor equalling for
him the building of the Pyramids.
There are, however, some insects with
distinctly obnoxious traits, aod among
theae the tarantula, the iargeat of them all,
ta pro-eminent.
The tarantula belongs to ths spider family,
and the variety found in the Southern
States is claisified aa a hunting or wolf
spider. The tarantula is the most com-
bative and aggressive of all insects.
The American tarantula belongs to a different family from that of Southern
Europe. It is larger and ita bite more pain*
ful than that of the European insect. It
oau be relied upon to make any man dance.
The tarantula is a frequent visitor to this
country, although not a native of these
regiona. It usually travels with a cargo of
fruit from the Southern States, Central
or South America or the West Indies. It
shows a marked partiality   for bananas.
If you enter into conversation with any
THIS IS A TARANTULA.
of the men engaged in unloading fruit you
will hear stories of tarantulas and possibly
have ao opportunity to eee one,
The tarantula is a giant spider, tome*
timee measuring four inches iu length. It
is fawn-colored ab��ve, with white aides,
marked with whitirh lines.
It has four pairs of well-developed legs,
in addition to the mandibles or jaws whioh
contain the poison apparatus. These are
grooved, and the poisonous secretion,
whioh is aimilar in composition to the
%enom of anakea, is contained in a gland
at the base of the mandibles and is forced
through the grooves wheu the spider ia
angry and grasps its victim. The body
aud legs are thickly covered with hair.
Although the bite of the tarantula oan
hardly be classed as deadly, it is always ex -
tremwly painful, and haa probably in some
oases caused death. The tarantula is re*
markable both for its fierceness and its ex*
Inordinary swiftness. By the uae of eight
long and vigorous legs it flashes over the
ground, and aa theae lega are sharp and
prehensile, it oan run up a perpendicular
surface with great eaae. No one need
therefore be surprised to eee a tarantula
run up frnm the ground to his chin.
The tarantula oatcbea amall birds, mice
and insects. It ia able to use its poison
with greater relative elleot on these than
on man and other large animals. Do not
let the tarantula take hold of your finger.

���WHAT IS���
Dr. Laviolette's Syrup of Turpentine?
TURPENTINE tia volatile oexoncooxtract-
od from tho health giving pino tree. Its
eti'ecU wi.en used as a lotion or liniment are
well known, but though ling recognized ai
possessed of wonderful healing properties, its
too stimulating action on thu digestive organs
and kidneys has prevented iti use as an internal remedy. How to prepare it, rendering it
wife and eaay to take as a medicine, while still
preserving ite curative principle*-, has beon a
puzzle to chi'tnist* for generations. This
cheialcat enigma has at last been solved by
Dr. Lavloletto after numerous oxporimonts
and an experience of 25 yoars ao a practical
chemist, lie bas t-accocded In compounding
a syruD whose active principle is turpentint,
with all its curative and health giving properties intact, but with its Irritating effects
neutralized and removed.
By the use of Dh, Laviolette's Syrup or
TuRPKNTt.VK the cause of the malady Is from
the first attacked. No narcotics or poisons
enter into ita composition. It is as safe for the
youngest child aa for tbe robust and healthy
man. Ic does not drug the patient and trust
to nature for a cure,but tho wonderful healing
balm of the turpentine is carried in the blood
right to tho sore spot which it at onoe soot hoe
and a permanent cure Is tbe result.
HEW ARE.- Sinn,- the groat success of Dr.
Laviolettks Syrup of Turpi*;ntinb many
unscrupulous persons offer for sale, or prepare
for their own use, a conooction of syrup and
raw *-pirlt*-! of turpentine, which dangoroui
Imitation they palm otr as " the samo" or
"Just as good." Remember It has taken Dr.
Laviolette many yearn of labor to discover tha
secret of rendering turpentine harmless to tht
huniiin system. lie i- tbe only person in possession of this great secret, therefore avoid
dangerous imitations. Get nothing but the
genuine Dr. Layiolhttk's Byrup or Tub-
