into Summer, for I have seen several
Summer girls in their dainty ginghams,
muslins, and dimities flitting about the
town, reminding one of the bright glad
birds and butterflies.
Then the Tennis Court at Mr. Frank
Smith's pretty home is attracting voung
men in thtir flannels, and young ladies
with their natty tennis costumes.
Ah! yes, Summer is surely here !
Bishop Perrin of the English Church
is in Union. The bishop is a striking
figure, and has a strong kindly face full
of energy and force of character,
On Friday he lectured to a small aad
aelect audience. His subject���"The
Cathedrals and Abbeys of England," was
illustrated by magic lantern views.
The bishop after a short apology for
not having visited Union previously, ex
pressed his surprise at rinding a place of
such pretensions.
Hii lecture, was given in a pleasing
atyle, and be held ihe attention of all
during the short time ne spoke.
Thc grand, stately monuments erected
by bands long mouldering ;n the earth,
stand a testimony of the genius, patient
labor, and ambition ol past generations.
Tht view of "Poet's Corner " in West-
minster Abbey, really inspired a feeling
of reverential awe, not soon dispelled.
The lectin and lhe views make an
Englishman proud of his native land,
where so many noble and sacred edifices
rear their atately towers.
We are certainly indebted to Bishop
Ptrrin for an evening delightfully enter
Mining, as well as instructive.
The bishop ia the guest of Mr, aad
Mrs. Frank Smith, of "The Knoll."

The next gala day will be July ist,
when many of our citisens are contemplating e. trip ts Vancouver, although the
Victoria calamity has filed some with a

A few weeks ago the choir of Trinity

The latest French teilettes are showing several colors in a custume, beautifully blended, however. Belts are an imperative accessary of all dresses, even

Soon after 6 p. m. last night the dis
patches came pouring in ana an immense
throng gathered in front of The News
office to learn the result of tht election.
As fast at the news was flashed over tht
wires it was brought to tht News by two
yoang bicyclist, sons tf Mr. Alex. Gram
and Mr. Robert Grant, and during tht
early part of the evening read to tke vast
assemblage. Later it) the evening, tht
rtsult of the dispatches was thrown upon a screen arranged in front of THE
News building. Intersperesed, between
the bits of news were given some comic
pictures, also some .splendid views of
mountain scenery. Ih this way the spec-
taters were entertained, and enlightened
as to the vote in the district, province and
Dominion. When the result of the election in this district was ascertained a
good likeness of Mr. W. W. B. Mclnnes,
Liberal member elect, drawn by Officer
Hutchinson was throws upon tht canvass
eliciting thunders of applause. As tht
wirings continued to indicatt a Liberal
victory the. enthusiasm tf the crowd
found vent in the wildest cheering. The
Conservatives took it in good part. With
lheir r.inks devided, few had expected
any different result so that there was lit.
tie disappointment, and no bitterness.
Long after thc ligntning ceased to flash
any news and thc crowd had departed,
the boys built bonfires near the corner of
and and Dunsmuir avepue, and an aavil
cannon bellowed forth the pcilt of a
Liberal victor),

Abuut 7 o'clock, a dispatch stated 1b.1t
then thc Liberal majotitj- for seats in
the House oi Commons was twenty-four.
As a result ofthe polling places heard
from in New Westminister district, tke
Liberal candidate was ahead.
The vote in Vancouver, which will not
be noticeably affected by a few small out
lying places is as fallows: Bowser Conservative, 381; Cowan, Conservative,
1149; Maxwell, Liberal, 143*.
The contest in Victoria was perhaps
the hottest of any place in the province
and resulted in the return of two Con.
servatives. The following is tht vote:
Prior, 1663; Earl, 15*03; Templeman,
1461; Milne, 1161.
In our own district the returns were all
in except Salt Spring Island, South Salt
Spring Island, North Maync Island and
Renfew. These will not materially effect
the result. So far as heard from the figures arc as follows: Union, for Haggart,
74! for Haslam, 8; for Mclnnes, 45.
Comox, for Haggart, 39; for Haslam, ij:
for Mclnnes, Si. Denman Island, for Hag

Haggart, 25; for Haslam.il; for Mclnnes
30. Sooke, for Haggirt, 43; for Haslam,
lo; for Mclnnes, 14. This gives a majority fnr Mclnnes of 175 over Haslam,
the next highest, tt shows the Liberal
vote to be 992, and the Conservative vote
cast for both candidates to be 1474.
One d'tpatcb says that in the east the
Liberals we* sweeping everything before ihem. Doubtless the country hu
gone Liberal and Laurier will be thc
Premier. The Manitoba school question
largely contributed to the result. Also
the hard times had something tt dt with
it. In many districts as here and in
Vanceuver city the Conservatives foolishly divided their forces and deserved defeat. The tariff will be somewhat modified, but how it can be lowered with a
deficit is difficult to see. However, as
country is above party there should be
no obstruction. Let ns hope for thc
best. This district has not had much
in the past, and if our new member will
aid us to increased mail facilities and
procure the necessary Dominion aid to
a railway to be built this way, we shall
bear with equanimity the result.

Michigan Lawyer Working on a
Harder Case,
How is This for a Yarn ? Mr. Michael Kehoe Heir to the Property- John
!���*. Murphy, an Old Guelph Boy,
Searching for the Murdered Man's
"I'm u notable man," suid Mr. John
I". Murphy, of Sand Beach, Mich., ua
lie shook hands with Conductor Fla-
velle nt the Union Station yesterday afternoon. "I'm it notable man,"
and tlio story that He told a Girlie
reporter during the ten minutes before the 1 o'clock trnlu tor the west
steamed out shows thut he ls a notable man. Murphy ls 47 years ol age,
tall, rather good looking, with a
dark moustache and short, slightly
gray hair with a tendency to recede from his forehead.
Mr. Murphy was engaged in the
Fenian raid; he was taken prisoner
by Her Majesty's troops and tried at
Uuelpli. He Has just returned from Uxbrldge, where he has been engaged
in connection with a murder case, a
Brennun murder cose, but with elements of mystery and duplicity Which
are lacking in the Barrie case of the
same name, which will soon re-en-
guge the attention of the courts.
Mr. Murphy's story is as follows: "1
wus born at Guelph, my lather being
Wm. Murphy. 1 own property there
now on Elizabeth street, neur tlie ci.
T. R. station, where uiy sister, Margaret Murphy, is living. When I
waa about IS yeurs old 1 waB sent
to Buffalo by the Fenian authorities.
"When I got there the city was
full of Fenians. They were about 80,-
000 strong: tliey were Americans,
Irish, everything���they were the elite
of the fighting men ot the American
nation. On June 2, 1866, 1 was sent
over with a party of 650 Fenians
under Capt. Oonohue, ol No. 1 l'olice
Station. Ue was an awlul man. When
we went over we were under tbe impression that all the 110,000 were
coming and that we were simply the
advance guard. We at once commenced foraging and getting ln all
the cattle to feed the 30,000 men.
We Just slashed right along and were
collecting the provisions, when
we heard the next morning
that tbe Queen's troops were
advancing upon us. I was never so
confounded ln my lite. At this time
we were in a maple bush. It was Just
about the break ot day when our
leaden told ua to get ready to fight,
aa the Queen's troops were advancing
Irom Chippewa. They formed In
squares, evidently thinking that our
cattle were cavalry, but we had not
a horae. We let the cattle go and got
ready to fight. I kept behind a tree.
Tbe bullets were coming lu thick and
laat. but I had sense enough to think
tbat I wan not going to get shot.
That waa a skirmish 1 Alter a terrific brush the Queen's Own of Toronto and the Welland Battery cleared down the road to Chippewa and
some of ns, myself among them, went
after them.
" Alter a while I met a fellow on
the road and he said: ' Who are you?'
1 told bim and he said,' Come along.'
He waa a larmer, and I went with
"The other lellows had lound out
that the main body ol the Fenians
were not coming and had gone back.
I waa taken to Brantford by the
farmer. We Intended to seize the railway there. 1 was taken in a cattle
car and shall never forget It. We
were captured and the other fellows
were taken down to Toronto tor
trial. Ap I was a boy and told where
I came from they dropped me olf at
Guelph and I was locked up there
lor three months and tried there. Mr.
Gow was the sherill there then, I
think. When I waa tried it cams out
that I had been roped Into the affair and aa I was only a boy. and
also on account ol the respectability ol my people and ol my being a
Canadian, I   was acquitted.
" After this I went in for the atudy
of law, passed my examinations and
In 1870 presented myself at Osgoode
Hall. It was found by the law society that I hnd Ih'imi a Fenian, and,
although I hatl been acquitted and
had passed my examination, I was
not allowed to onter the protection.
In 18811 went to Michigan University
and studied law there, nnd nm now
practising law at Sand Beach,''
" What brings yuu to Canada* aow,
Mr, Murphy ? 'twas askod by the reporter. '
"I am nfrnlil there will not be time
to tell you that Iwfore the train goes
or 1 could givo you a ,renl good Item,
tiut here Is the outline of the liuslnnw.
Mr. John Terney, of Port Huron, and
I have been at Uxbrldge as a commission to obtain evidence ns to the title of the heir to a man who wat
murdered In Sand Beach some yenrs
ago under mysterious clrcumatyuioes.
* Lawrence Uranium was murdered
by hla nephew, Michael Morrison, and
an effort was made by the nephew to
gain possession ol the dead man's property by means of a forged deed. Brennan had been living tn SandBeach for
a long tlmo when hts nephew) ana his J
wife came from Tonawanda to live
with tbe old man. Morrison murdered
the old man and put thai body Into a
disused welt. He and hts wife then
gave out that the old mail had gone
to Tonawanda and was Keeping a
hotel there. A little while afteq I
received a letter, apparently from the
old man, asking me to transfer the
property to the nephew and to tent!
tbe deed to him to ba signed.
I drew np the deed and sent It to
Tonawanda, bnt wrote on the envelop* To be returned In five days If
not called for.' Morrison sent his wife
to Tonawanda to be then to receive
the deed, but she missed her train and
tbe deed waa returned to me betore
she arrived. Suspicion was then
aroused as to whether everything was
all right ln connection with the old
man's going to Tonawanda, and an Investigation was made. Alter a while
the body was found tn the well and
the whole plot was seen through.
"Morrison was put npon his trial and
ls now serving a Ule sentence for murder.
"Well, hut who ls the Uxbrldge mas
connected with the case ?"
"Mr. Michael Kehoe ls a halt-brother of the murdered man, and we are
trying to establish bis title to the property of the murdered man Brennan
and will probably do so. After the
failure ot Morrison's attempt to forge
the deed drawn up by me lie forged a
complete deed and endeavored to secure the property by means of It. This
was a materia) link in tracking out
hts crime."
By the time Mr. Murphy reached
this part of his story the train was
well out of the station, and niter a
hearty handshake with Mr. Murphy
and liis companions the reporter
Jumped from the train nnd lound his
way out of our new-lnaiglcd station.���

A Youngster Who Ought to be Able to
"SeeHis Way.'
Some physicians have long claimed
that every human being possesses a
rudimentary third eye, but instances
In which It ban been fully or even
conspicuously developed are exceedingly rare. A baby has recently been
born to Mr. and Mrs. W. P. O'Neil, of
Portland, Ore., however, ln which
this third eye ls not a rudimentary
one, but as well marked as either of
those usually given by nature to
babies. The baby was born nearly
a month ago. It was not at first
understood what the strange development on Its forehead was. The
child seemed In excellent health, and
the doctor expressed the opinion that
Sometimes lheir Treasured Thousands go to Those They Hated.
It was something wliich would pass
away. But it persisted, and at the
end of three days the doctor, at the
urgent request of the mother, made
a more careful examination ot the
child's head. Motber and nurse oould
hardly believe that the strange thing
was what it appeared to be. This
time, however, the doctor announced
that the child undoubtedly possessed
a third eye. As tbe days went on
the unusual organ could be seen more
clearly. As the little one crowed
and clasped Its chubby little hands
the three eyes blinked ln unison. The
child Is still in good health aad appears to see as well with its central
eye as with the other two. The eye
ls situated midway between the two
others���that is to Bay, it Is In a vertical line with the nose. It is above
the others. It appears through an
aperture in the skull. Immediately
above the bony ridge with which the
forehead terminates. The pineal
gland, which ls eo developed ln this
Portland baby, ls described by Gray's
Anatomy���a standard work���as a
small, reddish gray vascular body,
situated behind the third ventricle in
the brain. The name is derived from
the Latin word plnea, a pine cone.
The O'Neil baby will become one of
the most conspicuous figures ln the
world, should It survive. There ls
nothing repulsive ln the appearance
of the child's face. On the contrary,
many people would say tbat the unusual number of visual organs gave
It an Individuality and a charm which
are lacking In many babies of tbe
same 'age. It Is Mrs. O'N'ell's ninth
baby. The others are healthy children, with no unusual features.
Bradstreets on Trade,
tleneral trade the past week was
more active In the Province ol Quebec, ns reported by Montreal Jobbers
and by those at Quebec city. There
ls a fair movement In dry goods und
hardware at Toronto, but prices are
unchanged and collection slow. At
Nova Scotia the volume ot business is
small, and there Is no Improvement in
the demand for fish. Exports ot lumber from New Brunswick to the
United States are heavier than last
year. The Newfoundland seal fishery
turns out better than expected, and
higher price ol codfish and better
prospects of the lobster llsbery are

Occasionally men bave become
miserly from good motives; as did an
Italian physician, wbo denied himsell the common necessaries ol lite,
and, when he died, was mourned fty
nono until his will was read, when It
was found that he had lett his entire fortune to be expended ln hrlng-
lng water from the mountains to his
native village. So, also, when Bethlehem Hospital was built, an East End
miser gave a donation ot one hundred
pounds. When a collector called tor
the amount, he was found scolding a
servant for throwing away a match
which had not been burned at both
ends. Misers are not conllned to one
class of the community, but have
been, at least, as common to the higher ranks as to the lower. John

Sir Harvey Elwes, ol Stoke, ln Suffolk, next to hoarding money, lound
his principal pleasure in netting partridges. He and his household, consisting of one man and two maids,
lived upon these. In cold or wet weather Sir Harvey would walk up and
down his ball te save tire. His clothes
cost him nothing, Ior he ransacked
old chests and wardrobes, and wore
those of his ancestors. When he died,
the only tear shed was by his servant,
to whom he Ielt a farm, value ��50

was left to his nephew, John Mag-
gott, who thus inherited real and
personal estate worth ��250,000, on
condition that he should assume the
name and arms of Elwes. 01 this man,
who ts better known as
the following story Is told. His
nepbew, Colonel Timms, visited him
at Marcham; and. alter retiring to
rest, lound himsell wet through.
Finding that rain was dripping
through the celling, he moved the
bed. He bad not lain long belore tbe
same Inconvenience again occurred.
Again he rose, and again the rain
came down. After pushing the bed
quite round the room, he found a
corner where the celling was better
secured, and slept until morning.
When be met his uncle at breakfast, he told him what had happened.
" Aye, aye," said Mr. Elwes, " I don't
mind It myself, but to those who do
that's a nice corner In the rain." Mr.
and Miss Dancer ara reputed
ot the eighteenth century. Tbe manner ln which thia couple were found,
alter death, to have disposed of their
wealth was even more strange than
could have been their methods ot acquiring It. The total value was ��20,-

��2,500 waa found under a dunghill;
��500 ln an old coat nailed to the manger ln the stable; ��600 ln notes were
hidden away In an old teapot; tbe
chimney yielded ��2,000, stowed In
nineteen separate crevices. Several
Jugs filled with coin were secreted ln
the stable loft. The Rev. Mr. Jones,
ol Blewbury, with a nest egg of
��200 and a stipend amounting to ��50
per annum, left at death the sum
of ��10,000. Hehad been rector ot bis
parish for forty years, and during all
that time only one person had been
known to sit at his festal table.
In bis house; nor was a servant kept,
In winter he would visit his parishioners, to keep himself trom starving
ot cold, rather than light a fire at
the rectory. As like affects like, so It
la with misers; and gold will go where
gold la. This ts strikingly Illustrated
by the act of a celebrated Greek, one
Dlchoeus DIcboenus, a descendant ol
the Bytantlne emperors. This man,
by the exercise of extreme niggardliness, managed to amass the turn ot
��10,000���an Immense fortune In those
days. Then came the question, to
whom should he leave tt. One day a
distant relative sent hjm a letter
written upon a square Inch ot paper;
this was sufficient. In the fitness of
things the parsimonious correspondent
became the miser's heir.
It has sometimes happened tbat persons little deserving, and even rulers,

Two Men Killed by the Poison ln a Dead
Snake's Fangs.
The farmers ln the vicinity of Cax*
ton's, a settlement deep ln the Pennsylvania woods, had been excited over
two strange deaths, due, the more
Ignorant assert, to the machinations
of eome hoodoo Worker. One day last
summer Thomas Horton was passing
through a piece of cleared land, when
lie felt a movement beneath his feet
and a blow on bis right leg. Glancing
down, Horton saw a large rattlesnake
clinging to bis bootleg. The snake was
shedding its skin, and therefore In Its
most venomous condition. The snake
wns killed. Horton examined ills leg,
but found that lie was not injured, ns
the serpent's fangs had not penetrated
the cowhide boot. When Horton took
off his boots that night he put them
away, and thereafter wore another
pair. His wife guVe the old boots to
Napoleon Meeker, a negro who worked
on an adjoining farm. He wore them
one day, but on the day following,
when about his choree, was taken
with a pain ln the rjght leg. it grew
worst' and began swelling. Despite all
hastily applied remedies, the man died
ln great agony. Having no family, hit
elfects passed Into the hands ot his
brother, and among them were the
cowhide boots.
For some time the articles lay in a
corner of the cabin. Then Archibald
Hooker, a nephew ot the dead man,
put tlicni on. Before he had worn
them forty-eight hours his right leg
began to swell and pain hlra. Again
all remedies failed, and, like bis uncle,
he died. Then the negro portion of the
community, thoroughly alarmed, began to talk of boodoos and witchcraft. They obtained the services of
an old hoodoo doctor who lived at a
distance, and the dentils were laid at
the door of several people, but as no
direct evidence could be obtained, no
legal action was taken. Meanwhile
the boots had passed out of the
negro's possession Into that of an old
trapper, to whom tliey were traded
for game. The trapper, who was also
a rattlesnake hunter, capturing the
reptiles for tlielr ol), took the artlclos
to his hut in the woods and put them
on. The experience of the two
former wearers was repeated. The
second day he wore them he was attacked with a pain ln his leg. Hts
experience told bim It was the result
of rattlesnake poisoning.
Though unable to account tor the
Injury, he applied an Infallible remedy
for snake bite wliich he possessed,
aad slowly recovered. An examination
of the injured leg revealed a small
scratch, no bigger than that Inflicted
by a needle point, almost indiscernible,
but which was evidently the source of
the poison. As tlte ground was frozen
when the trapper received his wound,
he suspected the truth, and began a
critical examination of the right booting. At last his search was rewarded
by finding the small point of apiece
of bone Imbedded ln the hide. It was
the fang of the rattlesnake, placed in
such a way that in drawing out the
foot, the fang, wliich curved npward,
would not injure It, but on putting
the boot on it would be almost Impossible to escape a small scratch
from the poison-covered tooth.���New

Cost of Disposing of the Big City's
Beyond the small sewage filtration
plants in use m some New England
towns, the majority of American cities
allow the wastes of the community to
pollute the water courses. London, like
all the other big European cities,
treats all Its sewage, the average
quantity treated at the two chemical
precipitation plants connected with
the sewage system of the city being
nearly 250,000,000 gallons a day ln
Some Interesting facts regarding the
operation of these works are presented
In a report ou this subject by Mr. A.
R. Binnle, chief engineer of the London County Council.
The total quantity of sewage treated during 1895 was 89,880,800,000 U.
S. gallons, aa Increase of 1.08 per cent-
over the year 1894. The chemicals
used were 48,959,000 pounds, or 8.8
grains per U. S. gallon, ol Ume, and
11,277,280 pounds, or .88 grains per
U. 8. gallon, of protosulphate of Iron.
The total amount of sludge produced
was 2,169,000 long tons, or 4,858,560,-
000 pounds, which la about 6,400
pounds per 1,000,000 D. 8. gallons. Tbe
average amount of moisture ln the
sludge was 61.42 per cent.
The total cost of the two chemical
precipitation plants and the sludge
ships nsed to convey the sludge to tea
has been $4,728,770, ot which $662.-
822 waa for the ships. The fixed
charges on this capital account ln 1895
amounted to $248,000, and the operating expenses were $507,000, making a
total of $775,000. This Is equivalent
to $8.40 per 1,000,000 11. 8. gallons
for all charges and $5.64 for operating
expenses alone.
For precipitation only the operating
expenses were $2.98, and for sludge disposal $1.66 per 1,000,000 U. S. gallons ol sewage treated. Tliese totals
for operating expenaea are slightly Increased by some experiments with
filtering the effluent from the precipitating tanks.
Six tludge ships were ln use, carrying nn average ot 1,000 long tons each,
the ships making 2,169 trips about 60
miles ln length. The cost ol transporting the tludge to tea wat 8.18 pence,
or 6.76 centa per long ton, which Is
.185 centa per ton-mile for the distance hauled out, or half that snm If
the return trip Is Included in the distance.

The happiest ever born;
His face is like a beam ot Joy,
Although his clothes are torn.
I saw him tumble on bis nose, \
And waited for a groan;
But how he laughed I Do you suppose
He atruck his funny bone ?
There's   sunshine   in   each word he
Hia laugh ls something grand;
Ita ripples overrun his cheeks
Like waves on the snowy sand.
He laughs the moment he awakes,
And till the day Is done;
The school-room tor a Joke lie takes���
His lessons are but tun.
No matter how the day may go,
You cannot make him cry;
He's worth a dozen boys I know,

Did you know that frogs breathe
through their tunny. Ireckled skin, aB
weU as through their lungs, which do
not supply sufficient air to keep
the frog aUve? They do, and more
than that, It Is proved tbat a trog
can soak up halt its weight ot water
ln an hour. This soaking ot water
give the horrid, clammy, cold feeling
when handled and explains a strange
thing. Though a bullfrog were poked .
with a red hot Iron, it would not leel
It enough tc move out ot Its tracka,
for the moisture on the sain forms a
kind ol film ol vapor between It and
the Iron, vfhlch It takes time to heat
through, and so the frog would leel
no pain from the heat. And. more curious than all, the frog has another
safeguard against drying up���that Is,
a kind of Interior sack for storing
water. Like a camel, It thus keeps a
supply which carries It over many dry
places when It would otherwise die.
The water Is as pure and tasteless
as the freshest of spring water.
The other day a man living it-
South Carolina Btarted with his dogs
for a swamp to hunt quail. Soon
after arriving at the swamp be heard
his dogs bnfkirig, atfd making his way
to the scene he found a large bear at
bay. He hastily fired at the bear,
but as his gun was loaded with fine
shot It merely had the effect of maddening him, aud betore tbe hunter
could reload his gun the bear was so
close to bim that he felt his hot
breath on his cheek. One of hla dogs,
seeing his master's peril, sprang at
the beast's throat, but the monster
gave, him one hug, and he fell to the
ground helpless. By ibis time the
Ennter had bis gun reloaded, and once
more fired, this time with fatal effect,,
which caused Bruin to topple over.
The dog had sacrificed hla own life for
his master's, and he was lying on the
ground, suffering Intensely, with bis
baok broken. The hunter, with a Bad
heart, kindly lifted his dog up In his
arms, took him home, and cared tor
nim patiently, but ln vain, for he soon
died from bis Injuries. The hunter
mourns the loss of bis dog, and thinks
if It had not been for his timely Interference he would have met with a
sad fate.

So It was settled, and they parted,
both feeling wretched and disconsolate.
Mre, Tower's   sensations, however,
were not to be named In the same
mouth with those of Captain Delane,
who was a prey to such, remorse and
wretchedness as he had never In his
Ule known betore.   He could see now
that hiB wlte was an angel, and that
lie was an utter brute.   He remembered with    dreadful pangs   all ber
tender, loving   ways, her generosity,
her thousand good qualities. He had
not known until now bow be loved
her and how insupportable lite would
be without her.   He could remember
all her acts ol kindness now it   wat
too late.       Ah I why could he not
have    thought ol them    aU sooner,
instead of plUng up all those Btupld,
petty Uttle grievances which seemed
so contemptible now.   The pendulum
had swung back, and be saw   everything      ln     a       different      Ugbt.
As    he   paced  bis   room a prey to
wretched thoughts, a sudden blast of
wind shook the window, and   added
thepiolgnant recollectiota ot her probable sufferings to his other tortures.
How lu ehe was, poor darling,    the
last time they crossed Irom Calais to
Dover.    She had declared that another  hour  ol It would have kUled
Iher.  And she had laced the prospect
ol this misery, prolonged perhaps tor
days, rather than be parted from him.
How she must have loved hunt and
he had been fool and brute enough to
donbt her.  Bnt would not this dreadful experience change all her feelings;
torn her love to hate and blttemesa 1
Captain Delane waa by no means a
man given to nervous Imaginings, bnt
he began to think of stories he had
heard of the dreadful   Batterings   ot
women from sea-sickness.      He eould
aot be quite sure, but he landed he
had heard ol a women dying Irom It.
11 he hod only gone by the White Star
Line, at he had at   tirst   intended,
Ethel could have landed at   Queenstown, and there would not have been
so much harm dona;     hot now ten
daya at least must elapse belore he
could be with her, and what might
she not have to go through In tnat
time. It was 2 o'clock belore he attempted to go to bed, and then only
got fltlnl snatches of sleep, and woke
every time to that terrible   memory
which stabbed him like a dagger.
The post-bag contained   no   letter
irom Ethel���that settled the matter.
He went to London   by   the   early
train, and the butler told -the. other
servants that the Captain looked awful, and he was sun something most
dreadful had happened.    Speculation
was again rile���the maid taid that 11
there was any gentleman she   could
have given a name to, she would have
thought her lady hod eloped;     but
this Idea   waa   universally   scouted.
There was no evidence either ot the
pair having quarrelled���the butler declared they had "kissed most   affectionate" on parting the previous Friday, when the Captain lett home. He
oould not be ln such trouble because
Mre. Delano's aunt was Ul, and why
hould Mrs. Tower be so   pnt   out?
Meantime, Captain Delane was   pursuing his investigations.    He   ascertained irom the North German Lloyd
office that Mrs. Delane had taken a
state cabin at the last moment. Then
he went to the hotel, Interviewed the
manager, and learned that Mrs. Delane had Ielt the previous morning at
twenty minutes to eleven lor Waterloo Station. She had written several
letters the evening betore,   and   entrusted them to bim, saying that they
were Important.     He   thought they
were principally to tradesmen.    Had
ehe any luggage? Captain Delane enquired.    Yes, a new trunk that had
oome In that morning and   a   bag.
Captain   Delane   asked to see    the
chambermaid,   and heard Irom    her
that the lady had been up and out
early, and had aent In a lot ot clothes
which It had been quite a Job to get
packed In time. The lady had taid she
wae going to America all ol a sudden, and she seemed quite excited and
pleased at the idea.
He had hoard enough, and his
lieart was sick and sore. Then he got
Into Ills hansom again, and was driven to the chambers ot Ethel's family solicitor. The task before him was
not a pleasant one.
Mr. Bryaat waa devoted to Ethel;
lie had managed all her affairs, and
had been almost liko a father to her.
Captain Delane remembered how the
eld gentleman had looked on him
with suspicion when he came wooing the young lady, and It was some
time betore he could be convinced thnt
his intentions were not ol a mercenary nature. He Ielt exceedingly
uncomfortable about the telling of
hla story, but he took all the blame
upon himself, and would not even
attempt to make the best ol the
matter. He could see by Mr. Bryant's
pinched lips and deepening frown
that he was passing the severest
mental Judgment on him, and, though
in words the old gentleman said It
was a most unfortunate affair, his
look and tone spoke volumes.
" Yon can't blame me more than I
blame myaelf," Captain Delane said,
humbly. "Now the only thing ls to
find out what Is best to be done."
" I should Uke, 11 you please," uttered Mr. Bryant, ln a cold, stiff
voice, " to think the matter over
alone. It you will be so good as to
leave me now and return In on hour's
time. I will lay my Ideas belore you."
Captain Delane went out and wan
dered miserably about lor what
urged ! seemed to him hall t, day, and re-
1 turned punctually to the minute.
" I am ln correspondence," said Mr.
Bryant. " with a Ilrm ol solicitors ln
New York���one ol them ls known to
me personally. I will cable him asking him to meet Mrs. Delane when
the boat arrives. You will please communicate to me anything that you
may wish him to say to her on your
account. I will ask him to take rooms
lor her at the best hotel, and to see
that she ls thoroughly looked alter
and provided with every comlort."
"tain Delane thanked him effusively, but the lawyer received these
demonstrations very coldly and his
client could see that, although he did
not absolutely refuse to shake hands
with him, he only performed that
ceremony with reluctance. At every
moment Arthur Delane was becoming more and more conscious of the
enormity of his own conduct, and he
began to wonder how he could ever
have conceived to hateful and abominable an Idea as to leave his wife
in such a manner. It was not as
though the bad committed any crime
or offence against him tor which It
was right that she should receive
punishment, the fault was ln his own
cursed, morlAd pride. He drove to the
olflce ol the Cunard Une, took his
passage, and then bethought to telegraph " Aunt Mary worse," which he
had forgotten to do belore. He had
no other preparations to make, as
ail his things were already
packed for the voyage, and
he was desirous to get back
to Nelly to concert measures with
her for the purpose of throwing dust
ln the eyes of tbe servants and the
world at large. She met him at
tbe station, being anxious tor news,
and he told her all that had happened, not forgetting to speak ot
Mr. Bryant 8 displeasure against him.
" Well,'' said Nelly, tightening her
lips, "I am not ona ot those people
who like to hit a man when he Ib
down, still, you must really) not be
surprised if Ethel's friends cannot
help showing that they think you
have behaved very badly to her.
What could you have done more if
she had openly defied and Insulted
you belore the servants, or carried
on with another man under your
"Yes,'' he answered ln a dejected
tone, " I see It all now. I feel as If
I wasn't fit to live."
" Well," pursued Nelly, slightly mollified, "I hope that It you ever do

"For God's sake," he    Interrupted
" don't   talk like   that!     What, ts

"I don't    know,'*    returned Nelly,
dismally, "when anyone belonging to
me goes to America, or India, or Australia, I  always-make up my mind
I shall never see them again.   . But
now, what arh we going to say to

"God knowsV he aswered, ln a melancholy voice. "I don't. I landed

"Yes,'- observed Nelly, drily. "I
nlmost wonder you did not tbink of
that betore.'*
He made an Impatient gesture.
" You need not keep on rubbing it
ln," he cried. " God knows I feel
sore and bad enough already."
"Very well,'* sho rejoined, more
kindly. " I won't say nny more, since
the Lord has already wreaked upon
you tbat vengeance which ls supposed to be specially His. Now I
will set to work to think what lies
we can tell, and I will not stick at
them, however black they may) be.
For my own part I don't see a pin
to choose between white lies and
black ones. There would not be so
much difficulty about the world at
large���It ls the servants ot whom I
am afraid.'-
"Hang the servants!" cried Captain Delane.
" Yes,'' answered Nelly, laughing,
"if we could hang them, their suspended animation would be very convenient, and they would tell no
tales. Ah 1 those were fine old times
when people had power over the bodies and souls ot their . dependents.
You can't deceive servants, tbey are
bo dreadfully sharp, and all the time
they are looking so respectful, and
as If every word you said were gospel, tliey probably know everything
you are trying to conceal trom them,
nnd often a good deal more than you
know yourself. It ls the business of
tlielr lives, It Is a point of honor
with them to know your affairs, and
the moment you try to keep anything from them you lend a new
rest and Interest to their pursuit of
knowledge. Now, what possible
reason can we give Ethel's maid tbat
ls ln the very least plausible, why
she should not require her services
whilst she ls staying In her aunt's
large house, and still mora lor ber remaining there three weeks without a
change ol clothes?"
"No," he answered, "that won't
work, and I vould rather anyone
knew the truth than Mrs. Onslow.
She ls bo fond ol Ethel, and Bhe would
never forgive me; and, as she Ib a
nice, kind woman, I would rather not
have her bad opinion."
���'She will have to be told something," returned Nelly, "or, the first
time her maid meets Ethel's, the murder will be out. Perhaps sooner, for
they are rather lrlendly.and no doubt

"I will drop you at home," suggested Nelly, "'end go lor a drive all
by myselt, and perhaps Providence or
Els Satanic Majesty may send me an
Inspiration, lor I suppose one cannot
expect Pifovtdence to Inspire one
with a Ue."
"Do, dot" he entreated, "and I will
be grateful to yoa all my Ufe."
"Ah." the answered, smiling, "1
know exaotly the length, breadth and
depth ol a man's gratitude. It Is Interne while he It in a state ol expectancy, and nil ever afterwards.')
"Oh," he said, laughing, "yon are
thinking of quite a dillerent case Irom
"No," she exclaimed, "I am thinking
of every oase ln which a man swears
to be grateful for the rest ol hie llie."
"Try me," he urged.
"Yes," she returned. "I will try
you, and I shall not be at all surprised and disappointed when I find
you wanting."
Here tbey arrived at the park
gates, and Captain Delane descended,
whilst Mrs. Tower pursued her drive.
Oa her return she went straight to
"Ion and Ethel," she said, throwing hersell Into a chair, "will both
ttart for America to-morrow."
"Saturday," be Interrupted.
"No, to-morrow. You will go down
to Liverpool and sleep there. It ls a
sudden treak on her part. She has
been engaged these two days ln making preparations. Bhe did not take
Davis to London with her because she
wanted the matter kept a protound
secret until she started, as Bhe was
afraid ot Mrs. Onslow trying to dissuade her 11 she got any Inkling ot her
Intention. Sbe does not take Davis
to America because they are both bad
sailors, and ehe had engaged a travelling mold; it Is all hideously Improbable; they won't believe It; but
If you can lind anything better, do.
Perhaps, In talking It over, we may
Improve upon It; but, tor general outline, I don't see that we can do better. I shell tell Davis point-blank
that Mrs. Onslow's Ulness was Imaginary, and that Ethel did not go to
her at all; and I will, If you like,
write to Mrs. Onslow and give her aU
sorts ol affectionate messages and
excuses from Ethel. Though, really
and truly, as Heaven knows what
may happen, I think It would be infinitely wiser to tell her the truth.
She will be dreadfully upset at first,
but she ts a very good sort, and for
Ethel's sake will make the best ol
Captain Delane looked unhappy and
" Yes," observed Nelly, " I know It
ls very lame and unsatisfactory, but
find something better if you can.
" It seems so awfully Improbable,"
be said, dejectedly.
" Yes." ehe returned, " but not halt
so Improbable aa the actual truth.
I defy you to beat that ln fiction.
It ts no use���nothing on earth can
make It plausible that Ethel should
dash off to America ln February at
three days' notice without a shadow
of reason for doing so, when she has
never expressed the smallest wish to
go there, and hates the sea."
"StayI" he sold, looking up with
a flash of Intelligence. " Why not tell
half the truth? Why not say that I
had to go to America on business;
that I did not tell her until a tew
days before I was to start, fearing
It would upeet her; and that the
moment she discovered my Intention
she Insisted on accompanying me ?"
"Yes," returned Nelly, heartily,
"that Is a much better Idea than
mine; I think that will do."
"But." he returned, modestly, "It
was your Idea that we are going together, and, after all, that gave me
the clue, and ls the most Important
"Very well," said Nelly, "honors
are divided. And now, please Heaven,
to let all go well, and ln, let' me see,
how many days ? ten, or perhaps with
luck nine, you will be folded in each
other's arms, and you will go to Nl-
agra for your wedding trip, and have
the most delightful honeymoon that
ever was heard of."
" Please God It comes off all right,"
he said, still looking dreadfully dejected. " Poor darling 1 I wonder
what Is happening to her now.
Mercifully the wind has gone down
a bit. I only hope the stewardess
ls a nice woman���she can do more
for Ethel than anyone else Just now."
" I canuot imagine." remarked Nelly,
perplexed, " what account she will
give ot herself, or what reason she
can Invent for going such a Journey alone."
"Oh, Mrs. Tower 1" groaned the
young man, " won't It make her bate
me? Will she ever be able to forgive
Nelly looked reflective.
" She never ought to," she replied,
"but It is a peculiarity of our sex
that the more we have to forgive a
man, the more he becomes endeared
to us. I can't think why It Is. but
there Is no doubt that so It Is."
" And to think," he ejaculated,
miserably, " that I was such a blind
tool as not to know her real value."
" Well," replied Mrs. Tower, "at all
events there will be no excuse for
your not knowing It In the future."
"I swear," he began; but she Interrupted him.
" Do not swear. Vows taken ln moments ot great excitement are seldom kept."
" No." he said, " I will not swear.
But you shall see."
They took all tho evening to mature tlielr plans, and arrange lor possible contingencies. Mrs. Towor promised to break tho news to the house-
keopor as soon bb Capt, Delane had Ielt
next morning, und to write a similar
version to Mrs. Onslow. Arthur was
to cable to her the Instant ho arrived ln New York, and had
seen Ethel, and they decided to be
extremely cheerful at dinner for the
beuolit of the servants, in order that
they might be led to believe that, if
thero had been anything amiss, It was
all put straight now.
Next morning he departed at 10
o'clock, and, half-an-hour later, Nelly
sent a message to the housekeeper,
requesting her presence ln the drawing-room. The fact of their being
old acquaintances made the task a
little loss unpleasant. **.
Mrs. Hawkins was not slow In obeying the summons. Not only was she
burning with curiosity, but she was
much attached to her young lady,
with whom she had lived ten years.
Nelly smiled, and tried to look at
bright as possible.
" Well, Hawkins," she said, " I bave
soms strange newa for you.    I don't
know what you will think ol It."
"It ls nothing very bad, I can see
by your face, ma'am, or you would
not look so smiling. It ls about Mrs.
Delane, of course.*'
" Yes.    What do you    say to her
having taken it into her head to go
to America?'-
Hawkins turned quite pale.
" Lor, nia-ani,'* sbe exclaimed, " you
never mean to say such a thing I"
'Yes, I do. Don't look so frightened. A journey to America ls nothltig
" But It s so sudden," objected Hawkins. "Why, the very thought quite
takes my breath away."
" Well, you see,'' sa(d Mrs. Tower,"
"Captain Delane has to go there on
business, and when he told Mrs. Delane, she declared she would not let
him go alone, and you know, when
she makes up her mind to a thing, It
Is not easy to turn her."
"But Captain Delane hadn't ought
to go It she didn't wish It. I don't
hold with married gentlemen going
away and leaving their wives, it
used not to be done ln my day."
" But he was obliged to," replied
Nelly, finding herself compelled to de-
tend his conduct.
" Well, I can't think what Mit. On-
slow'lt suy, I am sure," remarked
"That ls Just it." said Nelly. "She
ls not to know anything about it until they have started."
" But tancy her not taking Davis.
Poor thing, she will be la a way I
She's quite upset as It Is."
"Oh,' replied Mrs. Tower, lightly,
"she Is very lucky to be out ot it-
She would be sure to be very ill."
"But so ls my poor young lady,"
objected Hawkins. " I know how bad
she's been two or three timet only
just going across to Paris.'
" 1 believe that ls the worst Ut of
sea ln the whole world,'* observed
Nelly, with a view to comforting her.
" And ln those large vessels tbe motion Is not telt a quarter so much."
"But she's never going alone,
ma'am, with no one but the Captain
to look after her 1 Men are poor
creatures, I always think, when one
ls Ul. They never know what to
" I hope,' said Mrs. Tower, " that
Mrs. Delane will be able to get a
nice travelling maid. There ls never
any difficulty about it.'
Hawkins looked Injured.
" Well, ma'am, I must say I did not
think Mrs. Delane would have gone
olf Uke that, without wishing any
of us good-bye.    It isn't like her."
" I think," said Nelly, " that, when
she left, she was not really sure that
she was going, and Captain Delane
ls quite opposed to the idea."
Hawkins sniffed. She would like to
have spokea her mind about the gentleman���however, it was only a pleasure deterred, as she would have her
say out bb soon as she quitted tbe
" Mrs. Delane will probably be back
belore a month," said Nelly, cheerfully, "and she has asked me to tell
you that she wishes everything to go
on Just the same ln her absence."
And alter a tew more words sbe dismissed Hawkins, and went to prepare
tor her Journey,
tively little motion; still, when she
tried to rise and dress, she found the
task neither easy nor pleasant. At
last, however. It was accomplished,
and, taking the arm of the stewardess, ahe proceeded to the deck-chair
which had been placed tn a sheltered
spot lor her. No sooner was she settled than she felt better lor the air,
and began to look about her with a
certain amount ol Interest. Not far
from her were a couple engaged ln
a desperate flirtation���beyond them
waa a very sad-looking young widow
with a delicate little boy���several men
were pacing the dock, some briskly,
some with a dejected air, and two
young ladles In very masculine and
nautical attire, who talked loudly
and affected a great Independence of
manner, were among the promenadert.
As Ethel furtively watched her fellow-
passengers, she was struck by one
whose appearance distinguished him
trom the rest. He was a tall, tine-
looking man, with a lace which, 11
not exactly handsome, was extremely
attractive, and whose charm lay more
in Its trank and kindly expression
than In exact regularity ol feature.
Mrs. Delane decided that he was a
soldier. Two or three times at he
passed her their eyes bad met, and
each had withdrawn the gate at once,
only to resume tt when opportunity
occurred. There wns a touch of cold
In the wind, and Mrs. Delano's rug,
though fairly thick, did not keep It
out quite as well as she could have
desired. That the stranger
remarked this became evident from
the tact that, alter a short absence
from the deok, he returned bearing a
much heavier one He approached
Mrs. Delano without any appearanoe
of shyness, and, raising his cap, asked
U she would allow htm to put It round
her. Ethel was too well-bred a woman not to receive a courtesy ln the
spirit ln which It Was offered, and
accepted the rug with thanks.
"The wind ls very fresh," she remarked, with a smile, " and I was Just
meditating whether I could find someone to send to the stewardess for another wrap."

Ten Years a Sufferer From Liver
' Complaint and Indigestion.
Directly on the Nerve Centres Cures Like
Magic-It is Delicious to the Taste,
When, alter four-and-twenty hours,
Mrs. Delano's physical sufferings began to abate, her mind had leisure and
opportunity to    dweU on ber awful
situation.    For no word ot   meaner
significance could   express   what   It
seemed to ber.    She, whose lite had
always been so tenderly guarded, who
had beea hedged round with care, affection, and kind observances, to find
herself alone on the wide sea,   without one human being to whom she
could turn for sympathy���It seemed a
fate ot incredible cruelty and hardship.
She was perfectly   aware   that   she
would be aa object ot curiosity and
suspicion to her shipmates, and the
truth was so humiliating that It was
next to Impossible to tell it.     That
she was here ln pursuit of a runaway
husband, who would appear to have
baffled her pursuit, was a position so
galling to a proud spirit that    the
very memory of It caused her to tingle with shame,    In her heart    she
heUeved   that her husband bad tardily repented bf his intention of leaving her, and bad given up his voyage
ln deference to her wishes.   She was
not altogether an unreasonable   woman, and so she confessed to herself
that   It   was   impossible   that    he
could   have guessed her Intention ot
following him, and must thereldre not
be held responsible for the catastrophe which the Inspiration that   had
given her   bo    much   pleasure   had
brought ahout.    But, all   the same,
she Ielt very bitter against him, tor
it was his unfair and unkind behavior ln wishing to leave her that was
the   cause uf    her   present hapless
pUght.   The ignominy of ber position
ln the eyes of her household, friends
und neighbors, when they learned, as
they could not help but learn, what
had befallen her, added the sting ot
mortification to her other Bufferings.
To a proud woman, to have it known
that she has rua after a man, humbled berselt for the sake of one who
doos not really love ber, must, inevitably, be crushing.   She would give
worlds to know what was happening
ut the Manor House.    Had    Arthur
returned there the   following    day ?
Hud lie found Nelly there'/    Did he
suspect what had become of her,  or
was ho still in ignorance of her fate ?
Perhaps Nelly had    left    the Manor
House at once on getting her letter;
perhaps Arthur, ashamed ol    having
given ln to her, would keop aloof for
some days, and so be absolutely Ignorant of hor   absence    from bome.
That was an appalling thought, for
tn that case he would be tnklng no
steps to ameliorate her dreadful   position.    She wanted  to  think    that
ho knew everything; that he was a
prey to remorse; but, In   reality, it
seemed more probable that he would
not care to proclaim his defeat by a
speedy    return    home.       The   time
crawled on, and it was nearly forty-
eight hours since Mrs. Delane   took
possession of the cabin wldch she had
not quitted lor un Instant.   The confined space, the solitude, had become
Intolerable to ber, and she longed for
air.   She felt, too, tliat she must seek
some distraction trom her wretched
reflections, and when on tbe second
morning the stewardess    -irad her to
go up on the promenade deok she was
only too glad to yield tn   tht suggestion.   Tlie wind aad *.!ie sea had

Mr. David Beld, ot Cheeley, Ont..
writes: "For ten years 1 was troubled with liver complaint and dyspepsia. At times my liver was so tender I could not bear it pressed or
touched from the outside. Had tried
a great many remedies without any
benetlt. Was compelled to drop my
work, and; being worse than usual,
I decided as a final resort to try
South American Nervine, which had
been recommended to me by friends
who had been cured by It. I got a
bottle from A. S. Goodeve, local druggist, and commenced taking according
to directions. Belore I hnd taken hall
a bottle I was able to go to work
again, and I have Improved steadily
since. I can conscientiously recommend South American Nervine to any
sutterlng trom dyspepsia or liver
complaint." This ls Mr. Hold's Btory
as he tells it ln his own words. Were
It thought necessary it could be corroborated by a host of witnesses. Mr,
Keld has lived a long time ln Ches-
ley, aad his case was known to be a
very bad one. But that makes no difference to Nervine. This great discovery rises equal to the most trying occasions. Let It be indigestion,
the most chronic liver trouble, as
with Mr. Reid, nervous prostration,
that makes lite miserable with bo
many; or sick headaches, that sap all

the case. It Is a great medicine, and
thousands to-day in Canada are happier and healthier men and women
because of  Its discovery.

The peculiarity ef our climate makes this

lamented that st maty Canadians should
fail to appreciate the benefits of pure
Canadian air, and the inexhaustible pleasures of Canada's scenic splenders. Too
many of onr citizens believe that then* is
nothing to be seen at home, and that  all
that is worthy of inspection is situated

This is a most important article. O. A

There is money In buying a poor
farm cheap and " Bringing it up,'' II
a man has a faculty toward that end ;
but tho. majority will endeavor to
crop their whole area ut ouce, white
they and their farm both grow poorer. It is far wiser for the owner to
endeavor hut to produce eusteuau.ee
for himsell and Ills stock, aud devote
ah other cflort to the remaining land.

When fed on ensilage animals lose
beat faster than when fed on dry
food, and It ts, therefore, especially
necessary to keep thom warm at such
times. Animals fed lu a cold barnyard
or uncomfortable stable require at
least one-third more food, and one-
third of tho winter S feed makes a
largo supply.
Tho plant food derived from the air
Is constantly replaced by natural
processes, so that this source of supply need not concern us, aa It Is always adequate. In the soil, however,
the restoring of plant food Is, a very
ilow process, and ls by no means equal
to the removal by the ordinary crops.
In planting the garden get the best
of everything. When the superior
qualities ol a new variety have been
tested, do not refuse it, and yet this
does not mean that It Is wise to
invest In everything new in the seedsman s catalogue. We are advancing
tn every lino of horticulture, nnd the
Improvement of our garden vegetables Is no exception.
Thousands of acres have fed stock
upon the sweetest of grasses since the
settlement of the country* and have
given them all the lime their bones
���needed without any direct application
*of that article. It is never positively necessary to use lime as a manure,
but it Is often a cheaper way of getting nitrogen and phosphorous than
to buy It outright.
If you found that It paid you well
to manure a certain piece of sluggish
land last year, suppose you try It
again, even if you have to buy much
of the supply���only double the application. The last load of manure ls
the one which pays best every time.
Even Inanimate nature must be fed
well to produce well.
Many a farmer loses more than the
cost of an Implement ln a single season by doing without It. A hay
crop may be half spoiled for want
of a proper horse-rake. Many a
cornfield bears a short crop because
the planter did not feed out well and
regularly. Specialists carry on
their operations to the best advantage because they are prepared for
It ls all tolly to put nothing but
green leaves and water ln tlie silo.
Let tbe planting of ensilage corn be
done as early as possible, so as to
give it chance to mature. Plant
varieties which grow to medium size,
six Inches apart ln the row, and the
rows three and a half feet apart,
and you will get about all an acre
Is capable of yielding.
During the day the plant is gathering nourishment from different
sources, and during the night this
material Is assimilated into plant life.
It is a curious fact that plants grow
much more in the night than by day,
as can be proved at any time by
measurement; but this seems to be
the rule with all life; even children
grow most by night.
Farming Is a more comprehensive
thing than merely looking after the
crop In hnnd. The relation of tlie crop
lull-blooded butter sire you can Hnd.
Let him be at least two years old,
and he will serve your purpose lor
lour or five years.
Avoid sudden changes In feeding, but
experiments with dillerent feeds and
different combinations are always in
order. One wishes not only to produce
the largest product, but to do bo at
the least cost. Sometimes It will pay
to sell tlio products of the farm and
buy mill feed. Know not only the
value of feeds, but watch the market
In most ot the dairy districts of
Europe the cows are treated purely ns
so many milk machines, and every bit
of nvnilable force ls conserved for the
sole purpose of turning out one pro-
|ect. Bodily comfort ls at all times
considered, and cows are housed almost us carefully as are tlielr owners.
Few of ils are at the top lu this couutry.
Sometimes there is more to do than
to turn out our cows to pasture In
the summer and then milk thom twice
a day. Unless the pasture ls umple It
will pay to feed also u Ilttlo grain.
Kven with a lull pasture this Is some*
times advisable. The more succulent j
food requires more salt, too; and,
above all things, see that there Is pure
water in plenty.
The Mine Is near ut hand when tho
good butter cow will sell on her merits, just as does the trotting liorse. It
Is not fair to ask the 300 pound butter
cow to stand lu the market at the
same price as the one which yields but
half as much, no matter what tbe
pedigree of the latter or how fair to
look upon.
A solid cake ot manure covers the
quurters of many a Cow whicli stands
in the stable. Tours are not so, of
course, but it Is impossible for your
neighbor to milk his manure-covered
cow* without rubbing some of it off
into tlie milk, and you will find it
there if you let some of that milk
stand iu a glass tube. If he expects
to make tine butter out of such stufl
he Is fooling himself.

to "the stored fertility in the land is
quite as important a question as ls
the amount of that crop and Its value
tn the market. Plan for the crops,
and look ahead for the effect ot Buch
upon the field It occupies.
If you have never grown a crop ot
potatoes under Intensive culture,
make a special study of the subject,
and determine to grow a good crop
upon at least an acre. Both the
crop and the experience will be profitable. It Is not easy to avoid a
profit when one grows 200 or more
bushels to the acre.
Your wagon shows special results
of wear and tear during the past
winter, hecnuse in cold weather it Is
easy to neglect such things as greasing the axles. Many little things are
thus neglected In winter, hut the
necessity for thom Is as great ns In
warm weather. It Is well to endure
a little discomfort anrl tnke enre of
one's possessions.
Plenty of clover will go n long
wny toward making n f.-irin profitable. Think how iii'tny ways It can
bo utilized���for pasture, for hay, lor
feeding the stock or tending ttie hind,
sometimes serving the double purpose
ol (ceding tlie stock and then going
back to the soil in the manarlal product. Feur not raising too much : It
will always find a market.
The greater number uf stables bave
no means of ventilation save through
orncks or the open door, nnd this Is
against the adoption of the plan of
unbroken winter confinement, The
wnnner such stables are the fouler
the air. The daily turning out of
ntock ln such circumstances, even tint
fora few minutes, gives a change of
air. whicli  is highly  beneficial.
Do not ask your cow to give her
best results on ton pounds of grain
feed a dny when she Is capable of
eating and assimilating twenty.
Make a study ot her; know all her
peculiarities. If she has any whims
try as hard to pleaso her as you do
your family ln the house. Do not
count It costing too much labor to
keep her, from the flies and hot sun
this summer.
To buy Just the cows you want Is
too expensive and hard to accomplish. Better raise them on the farm.

There never was a day when what
horses a farmer can use to advantage
were worth as much to liim as tliey
are to-day. This ls the era of Unproved

Good blood we must liavo, but the
art ol leeding Is at the bottom of success wtth any Kind of stock ; with cattle for beet or- tbe dairy; with sheep
for mutton or for wool; with hogs lor
toe production ot pork; and that poul-
tryinun is a failure who has uot found
tlliiB OUt.
We should aim to produce such stock
as will bring buyers to us; someone always wants a good special purpose
horse, or an extra good milch cow.
Neither ol these were ever plentiful.
The fairly good we ever bave In abundance. There are many, both In the
city and country, mho will never have
anything but the very best, nt whatever cost.
To grow two good lots of pigs a
year the farmer who owns lour or five
sows should posses a boar or a controlling interest In one. It will Hot
do to depend on borrowing or hiring.
The male should always be a good one
and pure bred, and such cannot always be borrowed nor rented.
Were the wives to do all the curing
for the chickens, aud bave the proceeds returned in such a way that
the husbands would have all the

profit of poultry on the farm. Though

Alter the number oi geese Is procured which it is desired to keep, one
of the best plans ol management is
to keep the older ones and sell the
younger. The older geese are better
for laying, make better mothers, and
bring a better price when marketed. Geese can be kept for a number of
years in this way wltbout change.
Young chickens are always saler
and stronger when made to betake
themselves to roosts at nightfall, as
soon as they nre able to look out lor
number ono. They Ilnd better air and
are out of the reach of destroyers.
They were never healthier than when

There is nothing ln Ule sadder than
to see a strong man stricken   witb
paralysis.       Alive, yet dead to    the
duties and activities that belong to
life, tho paralytic, until a comparatively recent period, was doomed to
pass the remainder ot his days ln a
hopeless and helpless condition.'    But
since the discovery ol that wonderlul
medicine given to the world under the
name ol Dr. Williams' link Pills, those
stricken with this formerly Incurable
disease bave now the means of regaining health,    strength   and    activity.
Hundreds in various parts ol tbe country who were helpless, bedridden Invalids bave been restored    to health
by this Incomparable medicine. Among
those wbo have been thus fortunately
restored to activity is Mr.    Allan J.
McDonald, a well-known resident    ot
Nine Mile Oreek, P. E. I. Mr. McDonald says: "ln the lull ot 1893 I Injured my back, and during the yeur
succeeding suffered great pain. I had
no less than four physicians    attend
me  at  dillerent   times, but   without
any benefit.    Belore the end of the
year I was forced to give up ull active work and was   rapidly    lulling
Into a condition of utter helplessness.
On two occasions the doctors encased
me in plaster of Paris, but it did no
good. My limbs kept getting weaker
and weaker, with a twitching motion,
and I dragged my leet when I tried to
walk,   l'lually I lost all power ol locomotion and absolutely all power ol
feeling from the   waist   downwards,
and I was aa helpless as a piece ot
wood. Iu this ball dead and halt alive
condition   I   laid   lu  bed   tor   eleven
montha not able to help   myselt   lu
the least.   Physically I did not suffer
much,   but   mentally   the   agony   of
those long, weary months cannot be
described.  I was at lust told by the
doctors that there w&s no iiope tor
me, and that I was doomed to pass
the remainder ot my days a helpless,
half lifeless piece of humanity. Providentially, soon alter this I read of a
case similar to mine cured by the use
ot Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.   It gave
me new hope and my friends got me
a supply ol the pills.   After tbe uae
ot a lew boxes I lound that life was
slowly returning to my limbs.  I continued using tbe pills, gradually getting stronger and stronger, until now,
after the use of thirty-two boxes, I
am able to walk about smartly and
can do light work, and 1 leel tbat I
am gaining new strength every day.
Words cannot express the    thankfulness I feel at again being able to go
about actively after passing through
that terrible ordeal, and I sincerely
bope tbat my experience may be tbe
means ot bringing   back   hope    and
health to some other Bulferer."
Dr. Williama' Pink Pills strike at the
root of the disease, driving it trom the
syatcm and restoring the patient to
health and strength. In cases of paralysis, spinal troubles, locomotor ataxia, sciatica, rheumatism, erysipelas,
scrofulous troubles, etc, these are superior to all otber treatment. They
are also a specific lor the troubles
which make tlie Uvea of ao many
women a burden, and speedily restore
the rich glow of health to sallow
cheeks. Men broken down by overwork, worry or excess will find ln
Pink Pills a certain cure.

A Oure for Hiccough.
A woman ln a French hospital had
a hiccough wblcb had resisted all
treatment for four days. She was
asked to show the tongue, and It was
noticed that with tbe putting out of
the tongue the hiccough ceased. Tbe
same thing baa been since tried; and
with success ln otber cases. All that
Is necessary apparently is to strongly
posh tbe tongue out of tbe mouth and
hold It so for a minute or two. It la
also suggested now to try tbe same
thing In suffocative cough, or whooping cough, and choking by lrresplrable
gases,       ___

And Who Wore a Floral Copy of a Pearl
Miss Groce Maple, the recent bride.
Is an extremely pretty girl of 20.
Sbe has delicate features, large gray
eyes, and a fragile air which Is bewitching. Blue,, says London Lady, ls
ber favorite color���the ons best
suited to her delicate complexion
and masses of golden hair. Not content with having a blue wedding, she
chose to have the "sweetest color
that's worn" largely represented ln
her trousseau. There were white,
gray, biscuit, black and silver broeads
gowns tor various occasions, bnt tbe
only other color employed waa blue-
to Its various sbadea, ranging from
palest sky to darkest Indigo; Indeed, the Ingenuity displayed by her
modistes In finding so many variations on It was noted as remarkable.
Lady Maple's wonderful diamond
and pearl tiara, for which Sir Blun-
dell gave a small fortune some time
back, and which the mother has now
presented to her lovely daughter,
waa considered by the bride too ornate to be worn at tbe wedding;
therefore, tt was Ingeniously copied
ln flowers, the pearls * being represented exactly by the half-closed orange blossom buds.

Means by Whioh the Hair Oan be Prevented From Falling Out.
" We are never too nid to learn"
ls certainly true ln many cases, and
I made some startling discoveries regarding this Important subject, and
found that many common uses had
become general abuses. For example, the old rule of thoroughly brushing the lialr before retiring each
night does strengthen the roots, and
while It ls a good rule for some, it
Is a bad rule for others. It certainly
darkens the hair materially���due, of
course, to the fact that the natural
oil ls brought out���therefore, light*
haired women so anxious to remain
blonde should surely avoid It. Persons with dark hair, especially 11
wiry, should part It through the middle, brush the one-half at a time
carefully and evenly, so as not to
teal it. Vour brush ia largely responsible for this, however, ao use a long
bristle, not too closely   strung   to-
K ether. The French are undoubtedly
Igh authority on this much abused
subject, and M. Tonsorlal insists that
the simplest ls always the best, and
auburn, blonde, or chestnut hair for
washing needs nothing beyond a weak
borax water. Kemember, not a
handful, for then it becomes injurious, and, like the good doctrine of
homeopathy, you find what curea
will kill tf discretion ia left out.
Once a month singe the ends of your
hair. Most people cut the ends, but
thle la bad; It destroys the nourishment and Ufe. Singing drives the
fluid back to the roota. This is a
custom said to have its origin among
women of the West Indlea. and is
probably true, for they are noted for
their beautiful hair.
Massage the ecalp occasionally; It
la so beneficial; it stimulates circulation; it prevents the hair falling
out, and la especially good when a
email quantity of vaseline la used, but
rub It tn carefully and thoroughly or
It leaves your hair streaked and
striped on the outalde, and no benefit ls derived to tbe scalp and roota,
for which It la intended. The old
adage of removing gray hair la an
excellent one: "'To the funeral of
each gray hair pulled come twenty
mourners," and soon you find ths
dead fluid diffusing Itself rapidly
among healthy roots and graynesa
followa quickly. Tbe abominable
practice of using hot lrona to the
hair ls responsible-for much of the
dead, ugly colorless fringe that soon
becomes a disfigurement to many an
otherwise pretty face. Use oold water and paper, or curling pads, anything rather than heated tongs. It
was an bid saying and a true one:

One of the most dramatic piecea of
writing In English historical literature is Edward Grim's account ot ths
murder of the great priest whom Mr.
Irving la to personate at the Lyceum
to-night (Monday). Grim wae not
only a contemporary ol Becket'a, but
he was actually with him at the moment of hla murder, and saw that
ghaatly spectacle in all its minutest
details. The account will be found re-
Brlnted in one of Mr. Nutt's excellent
ttie volumes of "English History
from Contemporary Writers." On the
fifth day after the nativity of Christ,
says tbe Chronicler, the hour ot dinner being over, Becket had departed
with aome of hia household loom the
crowd into an Inner room to trana-
uct eome business, leaving a crowd
waiting In the hall outside. Four
knights with one attendant entered.
Tbey were received with respect as
the servants of the King, and well
known, and those who had waited on
the Archbishop, being themselves at
dinner, invited tnem to table. The
knighti scorned the food. Presently
they were ushered into the presence ot
the Archbishop, when they sat tora
long time, and did not salute him or
apeak to him. Tbe Archbishop turned to them, and scanning the face of
each one, greeted them in a friendly
manner, but they answered him with
curses, and Ironically prayed that
God might help him. At this Becket
colored deeply, now seeing that they
had come " to his hurt." Whereupon
Fitz Urse, Who seemed to be tho chief
among them, breathing fury, aaid
We have somewhat to say to thee
by the King's command: say If thou
wilt that we tell It here belore all."
The Prelate's reply was: "These
things should not be spoken In private or in the chamber, but tn public. If the door-keeper had not called
back the clerks the Intruders would
have killed him, as they afterwards
confessed, */ith the shalt ol his cross,
which stood by. Fltz Urse, again addressing the Archbishop, spoke ol
his "obstinate pride," and declared
that his designs against the King were
known to all. In a few dignified words
Becket sought to Justify bis policy.
After some more recriminations the
knights sprang up, and coming close
to him, saldk "We declare to you that
you have spoken In peril of your
head." "Do you come to kill me?"
asked Becket; and he ndded, "I have
committed my cause to the Judge ol
all, wherefore I am not moved by
threats, nor are your swords more
ready to strike than ls my soul for
martyrdom." The knights then went
out uttering Imprecations, and presently returned with swords, axes,
falchions and other weapons. When
they found the doors barred they
turned aside by a private way
through the orchard (garden) to. a
wooden partition, which they cut
and hacked until It broke down. The
servants dispersed, horribly affrighted. Those who remained urged the
Archbishop to fly, but he remained
immovable. "Why do you seek me?"
asked tbe Archbishop. Having thus
said, he turned to the right, under a
pillar. "I am ready to die," he said,
'for my Lord, but in the name of
Almighty God, I forbid you to hurt
my people, whether clerk or lay."
Theu they laid sacrilegious hands
upon him, pulling and dragging him
that tbey might kill him outside the
church. But when he couldn't he forced
from the pillar, Fitz Urse brandished
bis sword and delivered a learlul
bl&w, "cutting off the top of the
crown which the unction of the
chrism had dedicated to God, and
by the same blow he wouiulud the
arm of him who tells this." Then
Becket received a second blow on
the head, but still stood firm. At the
third blow lie fell oa his knees and
elbows, Invoking the name of Jesus.
Then tbe third knight inflicted a terrible blow as lie lay, by which the
sword was broken on the pavement,
and "the crown, which was large,
was separated from the head, so that
the blood white with the brain, and
the brain red with blood, dyed tbe
surface of the virgin Mother Church
with the life and death of the confessor and martyr ln the colors ot
the Illy and the rose." The fourth
knight prevented any from Interfering with what was going on. Tbe
fifth put his foot on the neck of tbe
Archbishop and scattered hli brains
over the pavement, calling out to the
others, "Let ns away, knights, he
will rise no more." Grim's devotion
to hli master Is corroborated by Independent testimony. Aa
one wbo stood by tbe Archbishop In
that terrible hour, when othera fled
to aave themselves, hla name deserves to be reverenced no less than
that of the Archbishop who, whether
rightly or wrongly, stood up ao heroically for the privileges of his

A uulque ceremony was performed
at Fort Mill, S. C. ou Thursday, when
a monument erected to tlie memory
of the slaves of the South who remained faithful to their masters during the war was unveiled. So far aa
is known, this ls the first recognition of tlie negroes wbo, in large
numbers, were perfectly loyal to their
owners. Copt. S. E. White, of Fort
Mill, a wealthy planter and mill-
owner, suggested the Idea, and, as a
result, the monument, a handsome
marble shaft, waB raised on the
brow of a hill on the main street of
the village, It bears the following
inscription on the front: "1860���
Dedicated to the faithful slaves who,
loyal to a sacred truet, tolled for tbe
support of the army with matchless
devotion, aod with sterling fidelity
guarded our defenceless homes, women
and children during the struggle' for
the principles of our Confederate
States of America���1865."
On the reverse side are the names
of the slaves of Capt. White, whom
he especially wished to honor. On
the Bides not occupied by Inscriptions
are the figures of a negro woman holding In her arms a whit! negro child and a negro man seated oa
a log in a wheat field witb a scythe
resting on hla knee. The cords
which removed the veil from the monument were drawn by four gray-
haired ex-slavee. An oration was
delivered by Polk Miller, of Virginia.

The other day an attorney was airing his Indignation. He had been

Finally Judge Gary noticed the fuming and fretting.
"Wbat'e the matter?" he asked.
"Matter?** It'a a confounded outrage! Had my overcoat stolen right
from thle room 1"
The Judge smiled.
"Overcoat, eh t" he said. "My dear
fellow, that's nothing I Whole suits
are lost here every day."
