What tlie Church Might, but Does
Not, Do.
(George II. Hepworth, in New York
I speak concerning Christ and tho
church.���Ephestans v. H-.
No one doubts the value of the
Church as a conservator of orderly
society, the representative ol what
we love best in this life, uf our hopes
fur the future, A world without a
church���that Is, without a body of
men uud women who defend unselfish living, nnd who constantly rewind us that there will be peace and
rest when the struggle and turmoil
ure over���would be a world uot
worth living in.
But fe-iuee thu Church Is doing so
much, wu wonder why it docs not
grasp thu situation uud do still mure.
Conceding tu thu full the Importance
of its mission, we naturally ask why
thu great majority are indifferent,
uud refuse tu avail themselves of its
privileges, Every effect has un efficient cause, uud the reason for this
iuek of enthusiasm obght not tu be
fur tu seek.
is it because men believe luss than
formerly, ur hold lalm at a lighter
estimate? I thiuk hul. There never
wuh a time when faith in thu essentials of religion wus mure ilrmly established tuau now. one of the
marked signs of the times is a general interest iu any serious discussion oi at fairs on this side una on
thu other side ol tlie grave. During u
somewhat exteudeu experience 1
have never been more impressed thau
1 am at thu eagerness ior information on these subjects which prevails among all classes. Tlie world
is butter, gentler, kindlier and truer
to its  best self than ever before.
But men ure thinking ulong new
lines, while thu Church still thinks
along tlie uid lines. For some reason
or other we have very littio regard
for theological dogmas, in this respect we ure eveu revolutionary. We
aru generous enough to believe that
every mnn has a right to worship
according to his own convictions.
That is tiie spirit oi the age. The
difference between Catholicism and
Quakerism is a mutter of uo importance whatever, If a man bus' n catholic outlook, let him keep it; if ho
has a Quaker outlook, lei him keep
that. Prbvldad he Is true, honest
and faithful to his duties as father,
friend and citizen, we have uo bus* >
plcions and make no comments.
Thut is What the people say, and
they are right in saying it. The wor- !
shipper   who   cannot   pray   in   uny |
church that was ever built, or pray
iu the open fields and under the stars
of ulghtf lacks the essential elements ;
of the true Christian.
Thu Church, unfortunately, dues not
agree with its Muster in this matter.
He told us that on love tu God and j
love to our neighbor hang.*;   "all tlie ;
law," but the Church has made adul-
tlons to this statement which are like
offering au amendment to a resolu-
tion by striking out all   except   tlie i
tltlu nud substituting something else.
The   requirements of Christ are  not ;
sufflclent/'and hardly a church in tlie
land would receive a man tu member- :
ship who adopted this simple rule of !
faith und tried to live up to It.
Must men believe that Christ was i
right, aud if religious institutions demand mure than He did they ought
not to complain if their claims are
neglected. Thu world has an increasing faith in religion uud an increasing
distrust of the efficacy of religious
forms und ceremonials and creeus.
Men have real  spiritual longings, a
whetted   appetite   fur knowledge of J
what is and what Is to be.  "Wheu one I
gets past middle lifts ho has  serious
moments.   The present is short,   but
the    futuro i.s    long.     He   has   beeu
warned to get   ready for a journey,
and the day of his departure cannot
be postpoued.     These facts press  on
him. duy by duy.  Hu feels the need of
faith, but he cannot take It at t-ocond
hand-   This faith must commend It- !
self  to  his best   judgment,  and It Is
practically    worthless.     Aow,  if the i
Church  cun    satisfy    theso  longings,
well und good.   But if not, ho seeks |
elsewhere for the solution of his puzzles.   When the pulpit thunders about
the     wrath   of  an    avenging  God,
and   then  ends  the  thunder-storm by
asking tho assembly to repeat   (the
Lords Prayer- and say, "Our Father,
which art in heaven,' ho finds It Impossible to do it. Ho bOfl depended
uu his (common sense for his bucoosb In
business, and he cannot d.-poad on
uny one else s Judgment In matters* of
stiii moro supremo importance- If he
haa been jtirue t�� tho " two groat
commandments,'' lut is told that the
gates of heaven will, nevertheless1* bo
closed, ho wonders why Christ, OS tho
corner stone Of the Church, has bean
(rejected, nnd either lapses Into infidelity or formulates his own ideas into a short creed nnd listens to no
preacher thereafter.
Then, too, I find many people want
a* kind of comfort nnd encouragement
and consolation -which vury few pulpits afford, it is a somewhat weary
world, even at tlie best* and life is
full of struggles���vain struggles, for
tho most part���nnd temptations
which at times seem irresistible, It
Is not an easy thing to livo a pure
and upright life. Moro than half of
mankind aro doing battle, more or less
bravely, with adverse circumstances.
Souls arc dragged down** by forces
whicli they senn powerless to control. .Sorrows come unexpectedly,
and tears, fall liko raindrops. Bereavement knocks at tlio door, the house
Is desolate, nnil the rumbling of the
hoarse breaks our hearts. Who has
not suffered these afflictions ? What
do they mean? How will it all end 7
The worll needs pity and sympathy*
Are tho dead e'ead, or do they still
live to watch over us? "Comfort
1 ve my people!" Cod reigns, the
! Father rules, and if you bear as best
1 vou pan, though that best Is poor
j indeed, Ho will fold you to His em-
I brace and " at eventide it sliall be
1 light.'' Your hand iu His, whatever
; comi36!
If the Church could say all that,
the pews: would be filled by a hungry
and thirsty, multitude. If tho Church
neglects to say it, then we sit with
the multitude on the mount and hear
the t-rutli from the lips of One who
loved us all and still loves, and who
bids us alsn luve tho Father who
sent Him with that uplifting nnd
: heavenly message.
I saw in my dream u vast pyramid,

I of all creeds und nations weru making
I a toilsome uscent.   So broad was tlie
base that those whu were beginning
j the ascent eould not see there were

less j the horizon became wider j the

Could now almost clasp each other's

i of them were alone, for their kindred

On the summit sat one watching
witli anxious eyes, yet never once did
he leave it, though he caught with
outstretched hand those who were
struggling to gain tho height. Their
hands In turn were stretched below
to raise those that followed.

Little 4-year-old Ethel recently accompanied  her  mother ou a visit to
friends in Nevada county, and for the j
first    time iu her lifo   heard   heavy
blasting  in  tlie mines, says thc   San
Francisco Post.    Curiosity soon   took j
the place of   fear,  and   her   mother
was compelled to explain tho process
In every detail. She told the little girl
how tlio miners drilled holes ln   the
hard rock, filled them with  powder,
put in a [use, and, after touching   a i
match to it, ran to a place of safety
to   await   tho explosion  that would |
break up the rock   into  hits.    Ethel
was greatly interested in It all, and
her mother took her to seo the whole

Thc chief of the anthropometric sta-
tlou at St. Petersburg has made a j
truly startling discovery. According
to that ge.itleman, tho order of crlml*
nalB mny bu determined by the color |
of their eyes. Thus, "thieves and
murderers always have chestnut-colored eyes ; those who abuse confidence
lu various ways have clmiamon-culor-
ed orbs, and vagabonds have sky-blue
eyes." Black and dark blue eyes aro,
oa the other hand, tho color of tho
eyes of honest people, anil, adds M.
Kerluff, tho twentieth century will
liase Its theories of crime on this Incontestable' sure sign. Which shows
that M. Kerloff bus no need for uttering the petition: "Give us a good conceit of ourselves."

" Mr. Speaker," exclaimed a member
of tho Now South Wales Parliament,
" my colleague taunts me with a desire for lame. I scorn the Imputation,
sir. Fame, Bir! What Is fame? It Is

Potatoes are good. They aro cheap
and not only wholesome-hut sufficiently nourishing to sustain life. Half the
potatoes daily served by cooks and
housekeepers are unappetizing and Indigestible. This is a slmlne aud a
Perhaps the most common mistake
Is mado In cooking tho vegetable so
slowly that wheu done it is liko prepared starch. Take a baked potato,
for example. Which is almost a meal
by Itself properly cooked. All that Is
required is a olean potato and a hot
oven, but as soon as it Is baked to
the bursting point It should bu servf-d.
Tear a silt In the skin with a silver
fork, drop in a lump of butter, season
to tasto and eat from tho shell,
linked potatoes that stand over and
become shrivelled make good starch
but poor nourishment.
Put a teaspoonful and u half of
butter In a fryiug pan. Chop up six
cold boiled potatoes, season them with
salt and pepper, and moisten them
with ubout six teaspoonfuls of cream.
Spread the moistened potatoes in the
frying pan as soon as the butter 1*3
thoroughly heated. Draw the saucepan towards tho back of the stove,
where tho potatoes will slowly brown.
In half an hour examine them, and if
they are fully browned fold them over
like an omelet and serve them.
Sick people prefer roasted potatoes
to any other way of cooking them. To
get a couple of choice mealy ones
ba io half a dozen; have a hot ovc��
or field of red coals; select tho vegetables with tlio fewest eyes and clean
them with a little brush ; throw them
in tho hot oven wet, and the s.iln will
baio like a shell, and the inside wiil
be mealy. Never put a knifo near a
hot potato. Prick with a silver fork,
drop a lump of butter in the slit and
servo hot.
Peel raw potatoes and leave in cold
water half an hour. Wipe, and with
a vegetable scoop cut out round balls
and throw into ice water; iu fifteen
minutes drain, wipe and drop Iuto a
settle of boiling fat; when brown,
skim out the balls, drain on brown
paper and pile at either end of the
fish platter. Garnish with celery tips.
Wash and peel one pound of potatoes, dry, and cut them Into thirt
���slices; fry in butter till of a fine
golden-brown. Drain and arrange on
a hut dish, slice, upon slice ; dust ovor
them a little cayenne and a teaspoonful of finely chopped chervil or mint.
Boil half pound of potatoes, skin
and mash. Rub them through a line
wiro sieve, add half pound of fresh
butter melted, the same quantity of
sugar, and four well-beaten eggs. Mix
all well together with a glass of red
wine. Placo the mixture iu a, well-
buttered mould, tie a wet cloth over
it, and boil for thirty minutes ; then
turn out carefully, and cover with the
following sauce: A tablespoonful of
rod currant Jelly, ono of port wine,
and the samo of hot butter, thor-
ouhgiy heated in a small enamol
���saucepan. Mounds of red currani
Jam or cranberry Jelly should be laI3
along the platter.
To each pint of well seasoned
mashed potato add one well-beaten
egg. Butter a mold as for potato
timbals, and after sprinkling well
with salted bread-crumbs lino the
bottom and sides an inch thick with
the potato. Chop eold beef, hanv or
mutton, and season with salt, pepper
and butter the size of a walnut. Pat
this in tho centre of the potato, and
cover It with tho remainder of Mie
potato and bake half an hour. Tnko
out and allow it to stand ten minutes In a warm place, then turn out
on a warm platter, and serve.���Country Gentleman.

Choose six largo, smooth tomatoes.
Cut a slice off tho stem ends, and with

Few husbands realize how mean it
makes a wife feel to be obliged to ask.
| for money, particularly when she
realizes that her better half is utterly blind to the need which prompts
her to become a suppliant, ln the
home he never notices that the plates
set beforo him nro beginning to show
murks of hard usage, that the spotless linen has boon darned iu several
places or that tho children's shoes
are shabby. if the ensemble is
comfortable hu is content, anu wou-
dera why in tne world his whu wants
new china, tablucloths or anything
else. Tho very man who grumbles
when ho gives ids wife $5 for a new
pair of shoes frequently has a half
dozen pair but little worn stundlug
on tho floor of his closet, llu couldn't
think of wearing a shoo with a patch,,
but Is horribly put out when his
wifo informs hlui that tho single
pair sho has been wearing steadily
lur six months must be replaced. Ho
doesn't Intend to bo mean, lie can't
help his lack of observation, and in
consequence tho wife feels like some
guilty thing when she ouly asks hitn
for money with which to buy tho
nc-cc-ststr-ry food or  clothing.
We feel inclined to shako all those
women who do not at the outset ot
their matrimonial career insist upon an allowance for their household
.expenses, and a definite, sum to be
used for their own wardrobe. If tho
proposition Is placed before the man
in a business light he will undoubtedly see its advantages over the old
way, unless he is ono of those born
Turks who enjoys seeing his wife in
the role of a slave, and then ho will
j probably contend that such a courso
would make her too Independent,
and should therefore be tabooed, independence Is Just what ho himself
demands, and he would feol highly Indignant if places woro reversed and
ho had to ask for his car fare or
money to buy a now necktie. Moreover, he llkos to have his home and
his wifo and his children appear
pleasing in the sight of the world, and
If he did but know it the allowance
plan would work a, long way toward
achieving this end. Economy would
bo tlie outgrowth of such a scheme,
for, knowing that so much could sho
have and no more, tho wife would
prove her own cleverness by little
saving devices that would make the
money go much farther than when
she gets it In dribbles, for which
she has to offer explanations largely out of proportion to the sum given
her. Insist upon an allowance, old
wives and young wives. It is a big
item of matrimonial happiness which
once commenced will win approbation
from all whom it concerns.
Americans who affect the so-called
English pronunciation of tlie letter
"a" in words like- "ask," "pass" and
"last" are so much inclined, especially In Boston, to overdo thu matter
that it is woll to reprint the testimony of a Baltimore traveller who
took pains while in Kngland this
summer to observe critically tho usage of cultivated speakers there on
this point. He found in effect that
their "a" was a cross between the
"a" of "ah" and tho "a"
of "at." Ho listened' carefully to the
orthoepy of Lord Chief Justice Russell, Lord Rosebery and Lord Salisbury, and to that of tho eminent
churchmen, and found that nowhere
"was there any such broad nnd deep
pronunciation of words, and especially the letter "a" as wo generally
consider to bo tho English method,,
Their pronunciation was almost Identical with that or good speakers In
Baltimore nnd Ncw York.

It seemed Impossible. Nevertheless,
before tlie end of the month (June) ehe
accepted Mr. Motley's offer of marriage.
Thnt was anything but a day of
(rejoicing. When I called in tho n:-
ternoon, I found .loan anu Cicely sitting In tlie studio with tlielr needlework. Joan's handkerchief was In
her lap, 1 could see that they had
both heen crying.
"Where fs Madgo?" 1 asked, with
a feeling that what I dreaded had
conic to pass.
���'She is upstairs���she Ib uot very
well to-day. 1 don't think sho ca.n
take her lesson."
"What has  Happened?" I asked,
"She has accepted Mr. Motley," said
Joan, striving to keep the toars down.
Cicely caught sight of her sister's
quivering lips, nnd turning away,
covered her face with her hands ; she
was particularly sensitive, nnd the
sight of another crying had the same
e.ieet upou her ,that it has: upon
children���It made lier cry, too. She
wns not liko Joan, whoso grief was
tlio result of deep reflection.
"Ilo asked her yesterday, and she
consented this morning without saying a word to us until It waa done,
and could not bo undone," said Joan.
"She was unusually thoughtful and
quiet last night���though, poor dear,
' sho has been thought,ul enough for
weeks past.     1  feared It."
"Where is your father ?"1 I asked
" (lone out���ho is so sensitive���ho
cannot work whon ho sees us out
spirits." The girl. alwayB toundan
excuse for tholr lather, where 1 eould
Had none.
"Nn," thought I, "ho'll leave you to
weep alone, rather than try to coin-
lort you j he can't work when you are
suffering, hut ho won't work to snve
you from It ;"��� nnd then, wheal
thought how this calamity might
have heen averted, bad he only stuck
steadily to his work for a week���how
he might hnve got a couple of hundred pounds for the sccoud portrait
of Madge, given Motley his congee,
paid his bills, taken bis family to Mur-
.gate for a week, and Bet them up
ln new health and spirits���when I
thought of all this, I felt bo exasperated, that, had It been in my power,
I would hnve condemned Potter to
turn a mill for the rest* of his life.
However, I Bald nothing, and tried
to oncenl what I felt, for the poor
girls needed no aggravation of their
aorrow, and I eaw that my better*
course was to put the best face on
the matter.
During the past weeks I hod done
all I could honestly do to damage Mr,
Motley's cause; I had made Inquiries
? j~3rJ?<2) e>   9'" m vi tty-
respecting bia character, his position,
and his antecedents, with the hope of
learning something to bis disadvantage ; bnt no one had a bnd word
to any for him; he bod mnde a fine
position by sheer hard work and perseverance. Having failed to find anything against him, it was but
fair thnt I should say what I knew
lu his favor, nnd now was tho time
to speak up.
"Mr. Motley Is nn excellent man,"
said I. ''lie Is open-hearted and
tree-handed You do not know half
the good he does, for ho makes no
boast of his generosity. It ts nntur-
al to him to give, albeit ho has worked, nnd still works hard for all thnt
lie gives.. That is a good character '	
" Yes, yes,* Interrupted Joan ; " no
one can speak m of him, and if Mndge
only loved him, there would be nothing to regret. But she does not love
hlin, nnd she has sacrificed herself
for us.'
" Y'ou must not let her see you think
thnt, and the best way is not to
think it yourselves. For my own
part,' snid I, speaking as If I meant
what 1 said, " I am not so sure that
she.has mado a sacrifice. If she loved
any one else, it would be a different
matter, but she does not, nnd I do
not think sho ever will. And It's well
it is so. For had she loved a poor
man,' I continued, recalling the
arguments poor Mndge herself had
mnde, "she must hnve ruined hini,
with her love of luxury and extravagance ; and what happiness wonld
tliere have been for her then? No
���It is ceiar. she must marry for position���any one can see that she was
horn to be a womian of the world;
and If she must marry a prince, why,
she fs to bo congratulated on having
found one with a good heart and a
long purse. It will never do to treat
this as a misfortune. Come, Cicely,
have yon settled what will become
you best ns a bridesmaid?"
' " Yes," sho repUed, " I have been
thinking ol that: but I don't see the
uso ot putting on beautiful dresses if
we re nil going in tears."
" But you re not going ln tears���you
will not be so stupid or so unkind."
" No,'- said Joan; " we must look at
the bright side."
And so we did, out we could (not
forget that tho dark side was there.
1 had never mnde myself particularly
agreeable to Mr. Motley, and he was
shrewd enough to see that I was no
friend; but it made no difference to
him���a successful mnn can be magnanimous without effect; be went
placidly on his way, taking no more
notice of my possible opposition than
if ho had been an ox, and I a frog In
his pnth. However, with the hope
ot making It more comfortable for tho
girls, 1 now put myself about to
pleaso Mr. Motley, and In consequence
when the family were Invited to spend
a tew days at Streatly, whero lio had
a summer residence, I wus nsked to
iola them.
"Come," snid he, lnying his hand
on my shoulder, when I hesitated to
reply���not seeing how I was to get
awny from my work. " Come. 'When
you think that it is to givo pleasure
to Madge as well as to me, you will
not refuse to bo with us.'-
Ilo showed great tact at this lime,
ana more delicacy than I should have
expected, considering hla rough and
uncultivated nature. It seemed to
me that he was even more careful In
his approaches to Madge, now that
sin.- linu consented to bo his wife, than
before. He could see that Madge had
no love for him; he knew thut slio was
uiarrylug for position ; she must have
told Mm that, for sho was too honest to conceal hor motives or to let
him mistake them ; and he was wiso
enough to understand that he must
win her respect and stlnnUato hor nt-
fectlon Ilttlo hy little, in order to
procure finally that love that was to
make them mutually happy. Wo liked him more for this, nnd brightened
up with the thought that, nfter all,
their marriage was not a cnlamlty.
It was arranged that tho visit
sliould be made the following woek���
the party leaving London ln tho afternoon, in time to arrive ut Streatly
for dinner. This gave the
girls plenty of occupation
in preparing dinner-drosses for
tlio occasion J there was a. good deal
of speculation us to tlio kind of peoplo they should meet; but that which
gavo them most concern waa their
father's appearance, it would never
do for hi in to take his plaee amongst

old Jacket and thoso shabby trousers ; yet, bow was ho to lie persuaded to change his attire for "one
more In harmony with the conventionalities or society, whleh he so
affected to despise ? J'ottor ulmself
Answered that question by appearing
in the studio one afternoon la a dress
suit, borrowed from a clothea dealer
In Long Acre, and differing from
ordinary suits only In carrying with
it a puugent odor of benzine.
"How will thut do, girls?" ho
asked, pulling his wristbands Into
view, nnd glancing at himself In the
glass with as much satisfaction as
u child with a ncw sash.
The girls wero delighted. They
made him somo white tics, sprinkled
him well with lavender water, und
so flattered him that ho becunie
rnther more vnin of his nppenrnnce
as a gentleman than ho iiad been
with his get-up ns an artist.
I could not get nway from my
engagement on Thursday, but early
on Friday morning I arrived at
Streatly. A trap was waiting for me
at tho railway station, with' a man
to drive me. and a boy In a smart
little livery to take care of my portmanteau. The pony rattled ovor the
ground as IL our weight were nothing. The quick motion, the fresli hny-
scented nir, the glimpses of tho river
hero over the hedge nnd tliere ,
through the beech woods, the bright i
sunlight, nil served to nnlmate me
with cheerful feelings and hopes.
"This is better thnn Highgate," !
said I to myself. "Madge will lie ���
happy." We drove up a hrond nvenue I
of fir trees, nnd then through a
handsome garden to Fnlrlawn House.
As the chaise stopped a maidservant
opened the door. I followed her
through the house, and casting my
eyes to the right nnd left on my
way, I caught sight of marble floors,
old onk furniture, walls decorated
with antlers nnd pictures, and
through nn open door a room furnished with the utmost luxury, nnd
looking upon a conservatory full of
bright flowers and grnceful ferns.
At the end of the vestibule was a
flight of steps, by which one descended to a wide-spreading ���lawn,
bordered with flower beds. Two
grnnd cedars stood on the lawn
like protecting giants. It was nil
very grand und very beautiful nt the
same time; indeed, I can think of
nothing more agreeable to the eye
than tho view of the lawn, smooth
nnd soft os velvet, the river beyond,
nnd on tlie other side of the water
the beech-covered bills rising sombre
nnd still ngnlnst tho gay sky, with
Its fleeting summer clouds.
My friends were crossing the lawn
���tliere was Madge In a light dress,
nnd with lier hands full of flowers,
and by her side Mr. Motley, ln a
gray morning suit, looking rodder
and more portly than ever; Cicely
and Joan, very neat and pretty In
their new dresses, and Potter In his
tail coat, which lie wore in nnd out
of season, because it was comfortable, he declared, though, In fact, I
believe he was ashamed to be seen
now in bis old Jacket.
"Ah ! hero he Is," they cried, catching sight of me, and we hastened to
meet. I knew by the way they shook
my hnnd that they were nil very
happy und well  pleased.
Wo went Into breakfast (It was now
striking nine), and Madge took  her
place at the head of the tablo,    opposite Mr. Motley.    It waB a plain,
but hnndsome room ; the decoration
waa simple,   but in    excellent taste,
Mr. Motley  having   bought furniture
with tho house, Just ns It hnd    been
by a noblomnn, whose wifo Is a lea-
dor of fashion, nnd this simplicity wnB
Intended, no doubt, to give value to
the richness of the tablo and Us appointments.     And, truly,  thnt     deserved attention, with its glass and
silver glittering amidst a profusion of
flowers. Certainly I had never seen
anything to equal that repast, which
It seemed absurd to call a breakfast.
If I had been told that it was a dinner, I should have Bnid, " And n very
fine dinner, too,'* nnd not have known
the difference, except thnt there certainly  was tea or coffee for    those
who likod to drink It. It wns quite
embarrassing    to    know    what    to
chooso from such a -collection,     and
poor Joan, who is naturally timid, I
saw was afraid of choosing anything,
for fear of committing a solecism before the two gorgeous men-servnnts
who wnited upon us. But to see the
grnnd ulrs Potter gave himself In ro-
, Jocting    the things offered bim, and
; sending the    servants for things at
tho other end of the table, yon would
I have said he had been weaned upon
! luxuries, and had footmen to    order
| about    every   Way,  notwithstanding
that his coat could be smelt on   the
other side of the table. How differ-
| cnt the behavior of hlin, nny, of us nil,
betraying our    humble station In    a
dozen particulars    palpable   to     the
servants���how dilferent I  say   were
we to Madge, who presided over the
table with  n quiet dignity and seli-
coninuind thnt we tried, In vain,   to
copy.     She seemed conscious of   her
proud position ns future mistress  of
the house, nnd it gavo a becoming nir
I ol authority to   a face   which   was
! never wanting In nobility and grace.
! JIr. Motleys eye dwelt upon her witli
��� exultation, and he had reason to con-
: gratulate himself, for a princess    In
! -Madges place eould not   have    com-
i manned more respect and admiration.
I    After breakfast, I   was tnken  Into
' tlie drawing-room, the library,    and
the reception-room ; Cicely nud Joan
I pointing ont one beautiful thing inter
| another, I'otter nudging me now and
then, and jerking Ids head sidelong at
something   particularly    nrtlstl*    or
rich, and Madge looking on  with    a
smile ol satisfaction and pleasuro. As
for me,  my replies to their remarks
and my   comments on all   these   objects ol art and luxury was nothing
more  rha-s a string of  Interjections.
r hud seen nothing so magnificent before.
Then I was taken into tlie coachhouse, und shown tho phaeton, the
brougham, the brake, the gig, and
tho village curt, In which 1 had been
fetched from thn railway station; it
wus like a coach-builder's Btorcroom,
everything so neat aud so beautifully kept. Aud thence we went Into
tho stables, where even JIr. Motley
grew enthusiastic lu admiring the
points of his horses.
"It Is no wonder," thought I, "that
Madge prefers this to the little cottage in Brixton, which was the utmost I could have offered her."
It was decided Hint we sliould go
for a drive la Hie brake; the girls
went up to change their dresses, and
wo men sat down by u table sot 00
tlio lawn in tho shade of the cedars,
There were decanters, glasses, anil
boxes of cigars.
"Do ob I do," said Motley, with
a cigar between hia thick dpi: "help
yourselves.' Then turning his merry
little eyes on me, he said, " Well, JIr.
Holderness, do you find the frame
good enough ?*
I knew what he meant.
"It I esuitablo to the picture," I
replied, "and that is saying a great
���' You re right," snid he, with a fat
little laugh, and stretching his legs
out with an air of satisffuctlon. "The
wholo thing Is what you would call
in harmony, Mr. I'otter. Weil, that's
j what 1 have been going for���It's the
object I've had before ' me tliese
twenty yeara. I've worked hard for
tt, and 1 ve waited my time. An Imprudent man would have made a dash
for It long before. That's not my
way. My system Is to play for high
pools, bat never with more than 1
can cover. Yes; with such a wife as
Mndge, 1 think I can defy the country to show a finer establishment.'
Potter replied in support of this
view, but 1 said nothing. I was
sorry to hear the man speak in tliis
way, for it, showed that he valued
Madge only as a chattel
which wonld serve to gratify
his ambition to be envied. I tried,
however, to put another construction
on his words; nevertheless. they
dwelt in my mind, ami I was sorry
he had said them.
Potter had contrived to turn the
conversation iuto unother channel,
nnd was discoursing upou nrt���a subject which, to give hliu his due, lie
knew more about than that of making money; aud Motley, leaning back
in the roomy garden seat, was looking down, towards the river with his
little eyos half closed, Ids thoughts,
I believe, following thoir owu current, thouh he pretended to J>8 listening to Potter, when a bont, with two
ladles in the stern seat and a gentleman in boating costume rowing, came
Into .sight. Mr. Motley opened his
eyes with a look of astonishment.
The gentleman shipped an our, und,
the boat gliding up to the steps by
the boat house, he put out a boat-
hook and brought It to a stnnd. Mr.
Motley raised himself In his sent,
looked nt the ground a moment ro- '
llectlvely, then, rising, suid, "Excuse
me," nnd left us.
Mr. Motley walked down the lawn
rapidly, for him, but before he reached the stops tbe gentleman had land-,
ed nnd was helping tho ladles to land.
There was hand-shaking, a short discussion, and then the party turned
their faces towards us and slowly np- j
proached. At that moment I henrd
the girls' voices, nnd Mudge, with her I
Bisters, came down tho steps from the
house. Seeing visitors, timid Joan j
would havo returned into the bouse,
but Madge would not allow her, nnd
they Joined us at the tablo, and sat
down while the party were still at;
some distance, the ascent being steep.
Wo saw them distinctly, tho two ladies between Mr. Motley and the gen-
tlemnn. The ladles wrere fashionably
and elegantly dressed; they were j
mother and daughter. The elder
lady may have beon forty-five; she I
was a spare, rather hard-faced lady, I
but handsome; 1 fancied I had seen
her before, though, for the time, I
could not think where. The younger
was 26 at the most, rather short, but
well-proportioned, nnd graceful ln hor
movements; she wus dark, and handsome, but her benuty was the very
opposite to that of Madge, for her
skin was colorless, her eyes were
long nnd narrow, and there was a
languid Indifference in her expression
which Is common enough in public
performers. I have seeu many girls
like her, but I have admired none,
nor have I known any of that type
who were liked or trusted by their
professional associates, nlbeit they
have exercised considerable fnscina-
tlon over the gentlemen in the stalls.
The gentleman by her side stood n
head and shoulders higher than she
���a fine, henlthy young man, with a
fair face, and a good mustache,
strong, well-cut features, nnd a large
hut well-shaped mouth, that showed
his teetli whon he laughed, and blue
eyes full of good humor and life. He
had a capital broad, whito forehead,
and nn open expression of countenance thnt spoke of wholesome
tastes, fearlessness, and generous temper. His boating dress becamo hlin
well; but, handsome though he was,
tliere waa no sign of foppery or affectation���he looked too strong for
such feeble vnnity. I liked him n.t
once, nnd felt that the more I knew
him the more 1 should like him. He
looked at us as he drew near, without nny great degree of Interest; but
I when his eyes tell upon Madge, ho
[ stopped suddenly, with nn expression
; of ustonlshment 6uch as you may sec
; In the fnce of an old friend whom you
meet unexpectedly in a strange place.
But tho look of astonishment and
w-onder remained on his lace as lie
I drew near.
;    "Mrs. and Jliss Borrodale���Miss God-
! dard,"     said      Mr.    Jtotlcy,    taking
Madge's   Hand    significantly; "Jliss
Goddard���JIr. Harlowe."
Mudge bowed, but JIr. Harlowe,
overcoming his astonishment, held oat
his hand, a.nd said, with a bright
"Pardon me, Jliss Goddard, I think
I have knowa you for quite two
It was now the turn of Madge to
look astonished.
"It Is true, JIadge," said JIr. Motley, with a hearty laugh;  "this   Is
my partner, Harlowe, who fell ia love
with your portrait im the  first day
of the Academy."
i    I remembered Mrs.  Borrodale now.
: It was she who criticized "L'Allogro"
bo absurdly, and who lunched    with
Mr. Motley iu the refreshment room;
I nnd at tlie same Instant    I recalled
. how Mr. Motley held a  tall    gentle-
' man In conversation with his back to
' us as we wero leaving our table.
1 The Goddards returned to Highgate
on the Tuesday or Wednesday of the
following week, f, who had beon
compelled to leave Fnlrlawn on tho
Saturday, hud much to loam on
Thursday whon I called on them.
Joan was thoroughly restored to
good health, and ull looked better
lor tlielr holiday except JIadge. She
looked troubled and anxious, nnil
was silent, wliilo tlie rost drowned
each other's voices, so much hud they
to tell. There had lieen a constant
succession of amusements, They had
been to a regatta, a lawn tennis
party; they, had boated aad driven,
picnicked lu the woods, and 1 know
not what form of enjoyment hud been
"And JIr. Harlowe?" I said, when
I wns allowed to speuk.
"Oh, he has been with us everywhere; hasn't he, JIadge'?"
Mudge, Inclining   her   head, turned
away, aud occupied    herself    in    nr-
ranglng    the pile ol music    on    the
I pin no.
"He lives quite near, you know, In
a delightful old house���that Is, he
goes down thero occasionally���a delightful, quaint old place "
"Early Tudor," put lu Potter.
"Strango that Mr. Motley snid nothing about It," I observed.
"Oh, he told ns thnt Mr. Harlowe
had taken a country bouse���don't you
remember?���and he did not know
thnt Mr. Harlowo was there."
"It was quite by accident he wns.
He had arranged to go on the Continent with a trlond, Out that fell
through somehow, und then Jlrs. Borrodale nnd hor daughter���hateful
thing 1 Isn't she, Joan '.'���well, they
had taken a cottage at Goring for a
month, and they asked Mr. Harlowe
to coma down and introduce them to
some of the people bo knows thore,
nnd that's how it was, you know."
"MIsb Borrodale is the young lady
Mr. Harlowe Is engaged to'.'" I suggested.
"Ho la not engaged to her."
"Then, that Is not tho young lady
Mr. Motley alluded to."
"Yes, It is. . She would like to
marry Mr. Harlowe, of courso."
"I should think she would."
"But he's not likely to marry her
���n sly, deceitful, affected, sallow
little thing. She would be. glad
enough to get Mr. Jlotley; and I'm
sure Bhe fancies she could got hini,
for she's as jealous as possible of
Madge ; Isn't she, JIadge '.'"
"I have never thought It worth
while to consider," Bald Madge,
"Well, she must he ready to dio with
vexation���to think that she's been
playing fust ami loose with JIr. Jfot-
luy, in tho popo of catching JIr. Harlowe, and theu *o find that she has
lost both."
" How 1ms sho lost both ?" I askod.
" Has she uot tho same chance of
winning JIr. Hnrlowo that sho had
beforo JIr. Motley engaged himself ?"
There was a pause after this. No-
hody soemed ublo to reply. It seemed
to mo that perhapa no ono liked to
say what was In their thoughts. To
mo that silence was full oi very serious Import.
" Weren't you surprised when Jlr.
Harlowo was Introduced''" p.skcd
Cicely, lior thoughts quickly running
into a new channel.
" Yen, I think we were ,nll surprised.
JIr. Motley led us to imagine that
his partner was like himself."
" That Is quito true," said JIadge, in
a tone of resentment.
" 1 think we deceived ourselves,"
said Joan, ln her prudent tone; "because Mr. Motley Is a brewer we
thought his partner must rcBOmble
him���though he told us that Mr. Harlowe was a Bleeping partner."
" I always thought that a sleeping
partner was one who was too old to
do anything else," said Cicely.
"Joan is right," said I. "JIr.
Motley never told us thnt his partner
was middle-aged or liko himself."
" Except in the particular that
they were both old bachelors, and
animated by the same spirit of rivalry
���which Is false," said JIadge sharply.
" That is a hard word, Madge,"
said Joan. " Mr. Harlowo might buy
horses and houses, without any Idea
of outvying his partner, yet Mr.
Motley might really suspect him of
that motive without seeing any harm
in tho spirit ot rivalry, or wishing to
detract from Mr. Harlowe's merit.
As for saying that they wero both
old bachelors, that is a pleasantry
which we ourselves nro guilty of���
talking about our being old munis,
without actually believing anything
of tho kind."
" Wasn't it odd that he never told
JIr. Hnrlowo that Madge was the
original of tlie picture that ho had
fallen in love with?" usked Cicely.
" Why should ho toll JIr. Harlowe
that ?" euld Joan.
" Why should he not ?" nsked
" For my part," said Potter, " I
don't blame Jlotley a bit. A man's
not bound to proclaim from'tiie house
top to all possible rivals that he
thinks of marrying a beautiful girl
named so-aud-su, wlio can be seen at
such uud such a place. I daresay he
foresaw the consequences of introducing a handsome, careless, young fellow like that���precious unpleasant
consequences too, for liim, and I'm
only surprised thnt he showed bo
muL'h tolerance and good temper,
with Harlowe dangling about, paying attentions to Madgo, and cutting
him out generally. Nice tiling," he
continued, turning to me���" nice tiling
for Jlotley to sit there, and seo his
partner monopolizing JIadge best
part of the evening."
'* Weil, be couldn't monopolise Iter
himself," said Cicely, thinking to
make matters better.
1 wished to turn the conversation:
but It was too late. I had raised
the storm, nnd could not lay it.
Madge rose from the music-stool, put
tiie music on the piano, and left tlie
room  hurriedly.
Tliere was a long silence. Joan
and Cicely glanced at each other.
Potter looked gloomily out of tho
window ; presently turning round, lie
" Look here, Holderness : JIadge
has u tremendously high opinion of
you, anil will be more likely to tnko
your advice than any one else's.
Couldn't you persuade lier to get
this young Harlowe out of her head,
and point out tlio fully of offending
.Motley by a stupid lllrtatlon thnt
Can come to nothing ?"
"No," said I, "1 can't do that:
and It Isn't necessary that f should
try to persuade her cither one way
or tlie other. Madgo Is a good girl,
and, thoughtless ns she may be In
many tilings, sho wIM not go wrong
from want of reflection in u case
like this. If she hasi no love for .Mr.
Harlowe, she will seo him
no more, ami will marry .Mr.
Motley; Imt if a real love has sprung
111 her heart for him, Bhe will not marry Jlr. Motley���and heaven fori Id any
word of mine should cause hor to do
" between two stools, one comes to
tlio ground,' groaned Potter, " und
then farewell to latlinldads and n
princely establishment. I'll spank
to her myself."
"Good I" thought I. "If you
speak to her la that strain, you win
strengthen her resolution to do right."
1 saw it would bo a terrible time
for Madge Slio had to decide
whether she loved or not, nnd then to
choose between sacrificing herself or
the Interests of her fnmlly; but I
felt confident that principle "would
help her through the difficulty, nnd
lend her to overcome "triumphnntly
the claims of false- sentiments.

Lord Sackville's expose will injure him
far more than any else. As Mimstsr lo
Washington from Great Britain, he was
bound not to interfere with the domestic policy of the United States. Cleveland acted very properly tn giving him
his passport. If Ambassador llayard
��ere to intermeddle with the domestic
pnlicv of Britain, every one would applaud the llniish ministry in sending
him home. Thc fact that we took r.o
offence al Cleveland's action was because Lord Sackville was in the wrong,
and his abuse of American public men
and the American people show his ut
ier unfitness fnr the duties of a diplomat. The two great English speaking
peoples nectl to cultivate more friendly
relations. And he is a public enemy,
be he English or American, that endeavors to keep alive the spirit of hostility. We are members of one family
���alienated politically, unfortunately by
the stupidity of George Ill���having a
common origin, a common language, and
a common mission���the civilization ot
the world.
The sermon of Kev. Mr. Sutherland on
the subject��� Five reasons why we should
have more liquor saloons in Union���interested a large congregation. The Rev. gen
tlcman applied tlie touchstone of reason
and declared that if i here were good realms why we should have more saloons in
town, that we ought to have I hem; but if.
on the contrary there were bettet reasons why wc should not have them, then
said he, root every one out. He gave as
a lirst reason that tbe saloons were an ex
cellent preventive against laying up treasures on earth. After referring to public
expenses due tn the liquor traffic, he estimated thc expense to a drinker at nbont
J1 per week or $150 per year. Wages
here averaged $J per day. An estimate
of the cost of living was theu gone into
and thc impossibility of laying up treasures demonstrated.
The second reason was that lhe saloons
were a certain preventive against wisdom.
The shortest road totooldom w.,s through
tiie saloon.
In the 3rd place the saloons arc an excellent preventive against idol worship in
certain tonus.
They abolish the idol ofthe home. To
the saloon frequenter, home and mother,
are not, a* they should be, the dearest
words in the language. Ifynu wish, he
exclaimed, to destroy home with all its
sacredness and happiness, then sign petitions for more licenses. Then there will
he little danger of vour idolizing wife or
In the 4th place he contended that the
saloons were a sure preventive against
righteousness and justice. For the saloon is another name fnr sin. Is there a
poor Inst girl that was not brought to her
ruin, directly or indirectly through drink?
he asked. It was largely responsible for
the legion of crime.
In the Jth and last place he contended
that the saloons were most effective in re
ducing competition in the ranks of labor.
About 6000 persons enter drunkards'
graves annually in Canada. That would
he more than the death of every white
man in the district.
In conclusion he made a strong appeal
to h,s hearers not to sign for more saloons-, if they had signed any, he adjured
them to h ive their names removed. "I
appeal", he continued, to every man and

I evening, at the Courthouse.   Chief Stew-
j art of Nanaimo who arrested   Dyer jusl
I as he was taking the train for   Chemanis
was present   and   testified.    It appears
! that at lirst Dyer claimed tobe Mclntyre,
but that his ticket read Mcintosh.   When
asked if any could identify him as lhe per
son he claimed to be, he referred to Mc- !
Intyre who had been at work at  Grant's 1
and who came down on  the  boat   with
him, saying he was his brother.     Chief
Stewart confronted him with   Mclntyre,
who declared he was no brother  of  his,
and that he told him  on   the  boat   his ���
name was E. Dyer.    Most ofthe money j
was found on him, and all accounted   tor
but $6.00.   The testimony of Mr.Cunliffe
was also taken as to the loss, also    Mrs.
Dyer's, although thc latter was  directed
not to disclose any communications made
to her hy hei   husband.   The   evidence
was quite sufficient and the prisoner held
for trial before a higher court, having jurisdiction.   Chief Siewart took the prisoner down with him Friday morning.   Dyer had really nothing to sav.

A herd of horned cows was bred to \
a polled    bull     whose  mother  wore '
horns;  i)0  per   cent,  ot  the    calve,t

This .snows how easily the horns may j

Honied cattle require twice as
much stable room as polls, for tlie
young cattle of the latter kind can'
be herded in a pea like sheep until i
ready to drop their first calves. No
chains, stanchions or halters; never
disturbing one another as they
crowd around the   feeding   trougli.
If we look through the stockyards
we shall find the horns actually gone
from nine-tenths of the stock brought
there.    Whether this  is due to   the j
chemical denorner,    tlie  saw or    to i
breeding,  It  shows   that   horns    are!
no longer the fashion. . iThe chances I
nre  that they   never  will  be  ngain.
The rigid rules ot inspection make it
unprofitable to ship doubtful stock,
which is quite sure to be thrown ont
at a loss. Keep tlie young calves until
old enough, and do not ship nny stock ;
which ts nut in good condition aud fat
enough to make good meat. ;
Mixed grasses are better for stock
thaa a single variety. However valuable n particular grass crop may be.
or however large the yield, cattle will
thrive better upon a mixture. Individual preferences of cattle differ, and
they will at all times accept a change

Ii you are feeding any stock with

cannot Teed them profitably otherwise. Nothing iu the whole system

thoroughly proved than this.
The highway toward profit with
cattle is recognized in good breeding |
and early maturity, flood breeding
is, of course, the first step, but early
maturity is mainly a matter of the
proper feeding of the young stock.
Such an end is simply impossible If
the animals are stinted while they

we sejl lo cent butter at 20 cents,
or butter Which  costs us  10  at lu.
No doubt the average dairyman
wastes one-fourth his food, feeding It
ln sueh conditions and in such proportion of essential elements that the
cow can not fully utilize it. This
also results In a waste of the vital
energies and productive power of the
cow, spending unnecessary energy in
chewing and digesting.
Nearly ripe corn can be made into
ensilage, using bufeh stalk and ear,
much cheaper than it can be cut and
shocked und husked aud shelled and
ground, and there is as much available food in an acre of such ensilage
as tliere is In an acre and a half
of the dry fodder and the grouud corn.
There is less liability oi loss, and j
a greater certainty of good results,
In ensilage than in any other method
of preserving the coru crop for dairy
food. Careless men make a failure of \
whatever they attempt, but such
failures should not discourage the
careful, studious man.

The peach grows upon a wide range.
Its most northern habitation is on the
eastern side of Lake Michigan, and
this is one of the most noted and profitable peach hearing districts in the
United States. This fruit is gathered
as far north as the forty-fifth parallel.
Careful experiment has proved thnt
apples keep longest whicli have been
gathered soonest after maturity. Mischief follows if the skin is broken in
the least. In most cases no packing
material is used, but of them ail thoroughly dried hardwood leaves are the
best. The drying should be done
carefully, and in-doors.
On tlie score of purity, healthful-
ness nnd cheapness, all outside
agents in the drying of fruits have
been discarded. A circulating: current of heated air does the work best.
This results in a natural fruity taste,
color anil odor, nnd in the possession
ot better keeping qualities.
It 1s said thnt when a Spaniard
eats a pencil or a pear hn digs a hole
by tlie roadsldo with his foot and
carefully covers up the send. The result is fruit plenty and free everywhere. What a happy custom this
might become In this "fertile land of
ours, where our roadsides nre neglected in so many ways.
The yearly growth o( 50 apple trees
upon nn acre of ground is worth $">0,
at n very low estimate. At bearing
age a good tree will make a dividend
upon sueh n value. Considering the
earning power of an acre, thn orchard
should be given credit for more
worth than  is usually the case.
To tide over the long thnn necessary
to bring apples to profit bearing,
peach trees may be planted botwenn

feet apart, anyway; nnd tlie peaches
grow more rapidly and serve as a
protection to the former. Tho peach

The idea of finding a substitute for
yeast seems almost sacrellglous, for
O-east lias been used by the human
race for untold nges, but ln the words
of Horace, "nothing ls too hard for
mortals to accomplish." and now we
havo'succeeded ln making the gigantic forces of steam and electrlrity perform bumble duties for us, we nro turning to tho opposite end of the scale,
and taming the microscopical fungi to
bo our willing servants. Mr. Jokichl
Tnkainiue, a Japanese chemist, is the
latest successful worker in tills field.
Whilo studying under 1'rof. Mills, P. K.
S., at Glasgow University, tho possibility of Improving our methods of
brewing and broudmaking, by llnding
flpd cultivating other fungi mora ef-
Ificlent than yeast, occurred to Mr.
Takamine, and when lie returned to
Japan ho continued tji elaborate, his
idea, in conjunction with Prof. Atkinson, oi Tokio University, until lie arrived at a successful conclusion, says
a, writer in Chambers' Journal,
Ordinary yeast, or barm, as It is
called in somo parts of tho couutt-y,
isi a iungiiB of the lowest ordor, and Is
closely related to bacteria. Under the
microscope, a yeast cell appears as a
���yellowish, egg-shaped body, full of
small specks, and has generally pne
or two clear spaces lllled with water.
The colls aj'e very small���about 8,000
of them iu a rowi would bo an inch
lung���but not nearly so tiny as some
uf their cousins, tlio bactei'ia, of
whom ten times us manly would bo required tu mako up the length of nn
inch. If one ol these yeast cells ls
placed In a solution of sugar and kept
moderately warm it commences' to
grow. In this process It docs not get
appreciably bigger, but a small bulge
lu tho wall ol the cell appears, which
soon onhtrgcB to a bud, and almost
boforo it has uttnined to Its full size
this bud begins to givo off buds of its
own, so that iu a short time, instead
of ono yciiKt cell, wo have long
strings oi them growing through
the liquid in every direction. To
tho naked eyo the solution appears
turbid, and small bubbles keep rising
to the surface, so that after a tlmo a
scum forms, and the whole muss Ib
stirred up by the gas It is giving olf.
Wiint is really happening till the time
Is that tho yeast is splitting up the
sugar Into alcohol and carbonic acid
gas. othor tilings aro formed at the
same time lu small quantity, including
glycerine, uml the heavier alcohols
thut we call fusel oil, containing moro
atoms of carbon thaa ordinary ulco.-
lioi. All the sugar is not converted
Into ordinury alcohol and carbonic
acid, becauso the yeast lu growing
uses some of it to build up the new
It hns been known fur many yoars
tliut, besides the different kinds of
yeast, certain niuuids can convert
sugar into ulcohul, ami can be mado
to work Iu the same manner us
yeast, l-'or Instance, tho brown mould
known as miicur, that may bo seen
growing lu lung white tlircuds covered with a hruwaish powder on different material, is onu of these. Mucor
is higher in tlie sculo thau yeast, for
It multiplies in a somewhat similar
manner tu a flowering plaut, instead
of by the method of building alone.
When gruwlug lu tho ordinury wuy,
the loug threads ou the surface of
the cultivating medium ure seen under
thu mlcruscopo to bo long branched
tubes, divided at intervals by truas-
versu septa, and filled with slmilur
material tu that found in tho yeust
cell. From these interlocking tubes,
upright tubea nru given off hero uud
tliere, carrying brown masses of
spores or seeds nt tho top; whilst
other tubes descend like rootlets Into
the liquid or other material ou which
the fungus grows. Now, If the fungus,
iusteud of being allowed to thrive ou
tho surliieo of a liquid, is submerged,
a reiuurkublu change takes place lu
its iiiodu of growth���tlio tubes break
up iuto short lengths, which soon bo-
come rounded, auu, 11 placed lu a
sugar sulutiuii, begin tu bud ln lung
strings. They breuk up the sugar into
aleohul and carbonic acid, and behuvo
lu every way like true yeast, su thut
there ia nu distinguishing betweeu
Tho problem .Mr. Takauiiuo set himself wus to find a fungus thut wuuld
act in this way but lu a far more
effflclent manner than yeast, and,
lu uddltiuu tu that, would render lhe
wasteful and unsatisfactory process of malting unnecessary, ile tried
vurious kinds of fungi, Including ull
ordluury torments known both to the
eastern nnd western worlds, ln-
eluding many kinds of bacteria, but
without marked success, until he
(experimented with an obscure fungus known as Eurutluin uryzue, belonging to the mildew family, whicli,
on duo cultivation, did nil thut was
required of It. it was found that
boiled bran was the best soil to
grow tlio fungus in. The plant spreads
on Itho gloJJOS with great rapidity,
and, If highly cultivated, by the aid
of cheiuicnl fertilizers, It produces
whnt correspond to flowers; but
this ts not tho best condition for obtaining the ferment, and when grown
for commercial purposes no fertilizers
are used, and the fungus is cultivated at a lower temperature, iu this
latter stato the rootlets are COVOrod
with niinuto crystals of diastase, and
tho /unripe seeds or spores are the
active agents ln producing fermentation. Thus wo havo tlie diastase
ready to convert the starch Into
sugar without any malting, und, in
brewing, tho ground barley will
only have to be mixed with a certain
qunntlty of water and sufficiently of
the new torment, Taka KoJI, as its
Inventor has christened it. Besides
the saving of ground, space, time
and labor that will be etlected by
employing a ferment that ls able to
do Its own malting, there will bo a
large saving of material, for the
seedlings of tho barley use up apart
of the starch in their own growth
before they are killed ln the drying
chamber of the malthouse.
There Is, however, a more Important field for Toka Koli than brewing
or distilling���namely, bread-making.
Unless we are mueh mistaken, the new
ferment will replace yeast entirely
before long for this purpose. Taka
Koil ls such a vigorous ferment and
so certain in its action, that It will
give much bettor results than yeast,
for It will bo able to hold Its own
against the lower organisms that
cause bread to turn sour. These
aro often present with yeast, and
cause tho loss of many a good batch
of bread and many a good brew of
The Interesting point about the discovery of those who are watching
the advanco of science, is not the actual material victory that has been
gained, but the hope of still greater
progress 'in tlie same direction. This
useful ferment Ib of precisely the same
order as the bacterial torment that
turns our milk sour by converting the
milk sugar into lactic acid, and is own
brother to the mildew that ruins the
hops, and another mildew that preys
on the vines. The llavor nnd digestibility of cheeso, for example, depend
entirely on proper fermentation,
and there Is a magnificent opportunity hero for finding a new ferment,
or scries ot ferments, that can bo
depended upon. In the disposal of
sewage and refuge, also, much might
bo done iu securing proper fungi,
which would at loust destroy the
germs oi disease. Indeed, there
seems to be no doubt that as much
may be gained by studying and cultivating these lower forms of vegetation
as lias been done fn converting tlie
wild vegetation of field und forest
Into the hundreds of useful plants
that fill garden and orchard with
blossom and fruit.

The Berlin corrbspomh-Snt uf the
Medical l'ress and. Circular, July 24,
1805, page Si, quotes from the Fhar-
mazeuiische Ceutralblatt the follow-
lug procedures to be adopted in cases
of Injury from powerful electric currents : Tlie curreut should he shut
off ut ouce if tiie means ure at hand,
and the person called upon understands how to do it. If this cannot
bo done, care should Ite taken not to
touch tlie injured person's body with
tlio hand. If no India-rubber gloves
aro at hand, the body should be
dragged away from the wires by
grasping the clothing, or the coat
shuuld be taken off and folded (a dry
cloth may be used for the purpose),
when thc injured person may be
grasped through it aud dragged
awny. When it is not possible to remove the injured person from the
wires, that part of the body should
ho raised that is in contact with the
earth or the wire from it, using the
covered hand. Tliis will break tlie
current, and it will generally be possible then to get tho body away. If
this cannot, be done, a dry cloth
Bhould bo placed between the 'body
and tlie ground, and then tlm body
disentangled from the wires. If the
body is freed from tho wires, all the
clothing should be removed from tho
neck and the Injured person treated
ns one drowned. The mouth should
lie opened nnd the tongue covered
with a cloth nnd grasped. The latter
Is pulled forward and gradually allowed to fall back. This movement
should be repeated sixteen times a
minute. Pare should lie tnken that
the root nf the tongue is thoroughly
moved. The bystanders should not be
allowed to give the injured person
spirit or wine.
Katie Steiule was a pretty young
girl of 17, roiy cheeked and remark-
j ably well developed fur her age. She
lived with her parents in their comfortable home at No* 8 Ontario street,
her father beiug a�� pork packer and
conducting  a flourishing  business.
Oa August 17th last Katie took a
trip to Niagara Fulls, but nothiug
was thought of that, as the family
sometimes took u trip across the
lake, .xmietuue alter she returned,
however, sue startled the family by
telling tbem that she was uiarrijd.
This was laughed oil', however, aud
passed lur a joke, as uo husband was
apparent. Nothing further could be
gutten uut ot the girl, who confided,
however, her story tu a younger sister and to a friend, Mary Detlor, who
lives at No. 258 King street east. The
latter she took up to her ruutu one
day and said: "Mary, yuu'd bo surprised, wouldn't youV" ".Surprised at
what?" was the natural rejoiuder.
"To hear that 1 was married," continued Katie. She then took out her
marriage license und showed it to
her friend, who noticed that it was
dated at Niagara Tails, N. Y��� Aug.
17th, and thnt the bridegroom's name
was John Leroy.
The next incident in tlie story was
the disappearance on Sept. 2nd of
Katie anu the receipt by her mother
ofa letter telling1 her that she had
gone with her husband, .John Leroy.
Immediately after tliis it began to
be rumored around that everything
was nut right, and that Leruy was
already married. Upon hearing this
tlie grief-stricken mother paid * a
visit tu Julia Leroy's mother, whu
lives with her married daughter, Mrs.
\V. A. Milue, at No. 40 Grove avenue,
Parkdale. These are most estimable
people and highly connected, and
"Jack" Leroy's conduct caused them
a great deal of worry and grief.
The old lady, however, could not be
convinced that her 'son had done such
a thing, and when seen by Mrs.
Steinle indignantly denied that "her
Jack" had ever been married.
Mrs. John Leroy No. 1 is, however,
an established fact, and ."Jack" ..lias

There Is no doubt that the good
peoplo here have a rapt expression
which may be best described as the
lilblo face; but, what ls far better,
tliey have the Bible heart as well.
Their profound religious .earnestness
and tlielr passionate devotion to the
Bible cannot bo questioned, When
they walk about tho grounds, even if
only to get tlio air, tliey carry their
Bildcs with tliein. Tho favorite, and,
indeed, the only edition in evidence Is
tho flexibly Jbound marginal Bible.
Thero Is no glory In having a book
whicli looks new, for that would indicate that Biblo study has only been
taken up lately. Tlio Bibles of most
people here show plainly, even on
tho outside, the dally usage of years,
ami if ono could look at the inside,
it would bo seen that every page is
covered with writing. A few have
Bible** with blank pages Interleaved,
on whicli they write either comments
of tlielr own or appropriate quotations from great writers. Such a
book Is moro than literature; more,
even, than a divine revelation. It is
tho spiritual history of a soul���Its
hopes. Its fears, llu inspirations, Its
fierce conflicts with evil, and at last
its final victory.
That Is how tlio peoplo here uso the
Bible.    They do not study It as critics ; they raise no questions* as to its
origin or authorship,    They start out
with   the  promise  that   it ia verily
and Indeed the word of God, and on
, that they stand.    No concessions are
I mado to modern thought or scholarship.     Tho verdict of the great critics Is contemptuously Ignored.       Instead of being troubled by tlie    demands which tho Biblo makes on their
faith, they would   like    to     -believe
\ moro.    They would consider it treason to God to smooth down tho hard

A correspondent!, of the Montreal
Witness comes forward to prove that
Islam is not a religion of peaoe, and
he doea It by quoting from the Koran:
" Kill the idolaters wheresoever ye
find them; tako them captive, besiege them, and lay wait for them
in every place convenient ... If ye
be believers kill them." The method
of argument adopted by this correspondent Is of the proverbial boomerang order. Somo similar passages
are to be found In our own Bible:
"And hath gone and served other
gods and worshipped them * * * thou
* * * slialt stone tliein with stones,
till they die."���Deut. xvli., 2-5.
" Let US go after other gods * * *
Thou shalt not hearken unto tbo
words of that prophet * * ��� And that
prophet, or that dreamer of dreams
shall be put to death."���Deut. xili.,
" If thy brother, the son ot thy
mother, or thy son, or thy daughter,
or the wife of thy bosom, or thy
friend which I* as thine own sou], entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go
and serve other gotls * * "thou shalt
surely kill him; thine hand shall be
first upon him to put hint to death."
Deut. -vill.,  0-8.
"And ye shall chase your enemies
and they shall fall before you by tho
sword."���Lev.  xxvi., 7.
" If thou shalt hear say * * * Let
us go and servo other gods * * *
thou shalt surely smite tho Inhabitants of that city with the edge of
the sword destroying it utterly, and
all that is therein."���Deut. xilI.,18-16.

In this age of competition, chinches
as well as factories aud newspapers
and drug stores have to adopt business methods to keep up with the
procession. Thus we read hi the report submitted at tlie Synod ia Montreal on the State of the Church mii
expression of regret that the Salvation Army had been causing the
Church of England to io*-o Its hold
on the uneducated classes, One
speaker deplored the alienation of organized ia hur. Another recommended a less patronizing attitude towards the working classes. Another
less dulnoss and more simplicity in
the service for country churches, lie-
cause the dissenting meetings were
more lively anil entertaining. Another, wliilc not advocating .Methodist methods, "would say that tho
Methodists and ignorant Salvationists supplied a need In men's hearts
which many clergymen neglected. He
told or the kindness of the Saviour
and tho forgiveness of sin, subjects
which, though In the English prayer
book, were hardly tmichcd on in some
churches." So long as men find
their way to heaven, it'should not
matter very much whether they
travel hy thc Anglican, the Methodist or tho Salvation Army route. But
it is a good sign to see any body
or Christians conscious oi their own
defects and delinquencies. C. A. McBain ���& Co.,   Real Estate   Brokers, Nanaimo, B.C.
