A noticeable thin*^ is ihe increase in
travel, Ami one can't help regretting that
there are not two boats a week, at reason
able interval1*, so .is tn give visitors lime
to transact business here, and those ot us
who j^o away, a charce to get back under
an absence oi six days*. The ni'Te one
think*, of it the more absurd ihe si u-i-iim
thill a [)i)(,ul ition of 3,tx>* should depend
on one bout and one mail a week. Tnat
one boat fortunate) ��� is comfortable, and
hnr officers gentlemanly md obliging.
The traveller, especially the lady tm triers,
will miss our genial old friend Steward
Smith. Rather ,1 comical scene is linked
in my memory wtth mv tirst meeting with
hitn It was early spring, \ear-. agu, and
the steamer from Victoria to Westminster
was crowded with miners on their way to
the upper country} and the stewards had
a busy time catering for the crowd. The
tables had to be set three times. Meals
were then one dollar each. At the first
table along with others was a clergyman
(nnw a bishop) who was justly celebrated
m* bis enormous appetite, He sat on
through the first table, sat 011 while
that was being cleared and re-set, on
through the second table, and wound up
when the third was finished and cleared.
A wondering crowd meanwhile watched
the disappearance of the victuals in that
apparently bottomless cavitv; and when
he got op and tendered his dollar, nnd
Scott with a suave bow and wave of his
hand said, '-Oh, no sir; the charge is $3,
the roar of Uughier from the bystanders
was something immense. The dismay of
his reverence was comical, ind although
he appealed indignantly to the captain,
be had to pay. This gentleman's record
at a country ina was as follows: leg of ven
ison. half a ham, a brace of grouse, 2 box
es of sardines, a large loaf of bread, % a
pound of butter, 2 quarts of milk, vegetables ad libitum, pudding etc. His pa-**.
total visits were no doubt nccasinnally
dreaded. Fortunately on his return to
England, he got cured of this dtse-isc
which would otherwise have impaired his
usefulness, and brought poverty and suffering in its train.

The Remains Discovered
The  Mystery of Mrs.  Fitzger-

at Last
Our readers, especially tlibse iu Comox
ViUlcy, will remember the much talked rtf
disappearance if Mrs. John Fitzgerald
three yenrs ago last summ.-r.Mie was quite
aged and nearly blind and had gone i*ut
buckberrying. She was list sCen alive
between 4 and -J o'clock on the day she
was lost, on the rotid between Marry
Cneve's and Joe Gneve's, by one of Mr.
Beech's boys. Alarmed at her not return
Ing search parties were organized and the
woods scoured in all directions. The
search was kt-yt up fur tw�� or three da>s
but without result. All sons of surmises
found adherents, but not the slightest clue
could be obtained. Some time aficr a
large haystack w.is removed to satisfy
snme wbo thought it might reveal the
mystery. A liltle over a year ago an attempt was made to organize another
search party, but it resulted in no great
effort, a*, it was deemed u-elcss.
The inysteiy remained unsolved unlit

The Eloquent Divine at His New
In ii a j.n i ml Sermon ot Bis Pastorate lu Code
Ham's Capital���Kvery Chrlatlau Mao Has |
a Mom to Fight���'* All Heaven Looking !
A Washington, 1). C��� despatch ot
Inst Sunday night saya: Those Who
know that no church in this or foreign |
countries has been able to hold the
audiences that have assembled when
it was announced that Dr. Talmage
would preach will not be surprised tbat
vast multitudes attempted In vain to
hear his tirst sermon as pastor In
Washington. The subject ot. his opening sermon at the national capita] was,
"All heaven looking on." the text selected being the famous passage from
Hebrews xii., 1, "Seeing we also are
compassed about with so great a cloud
of witnesses.'1
in this my opening sermon in the national capital 1 give you heartiest
Christian salutation. 1 bethink myself
of the privilege oi sanding in this historic ehurch so long presided over by
one of the most remarkable men of the
century. There are plenty of good
ministers besides Dr. Sunderland, but
1 do nut know of any man except himself with enough brain to have stood
successfully and triumphantly 4-i years
in this conspicuous pulpit. Long distant be the year when that gospel
chieftain shall put down the silver
trumpet with which lie has marshaled
the hosts of Israel or sheathe the
sword with which he has struck such
mighty blows for God and righteousness. I come to you with tne same gospel that he has preached and to join
you In all kinds of work for making
the world better, and I hope to see you
all in your homes and have you all
come and see me, but don't all come
at once, and without any preliminary discourses as to what I propose to do I begin here and now to
cheer you with the thought that all
heaven Ib sympathetically looking on.
"Seeing we also are compassed about
with so great a cloud of witnesses."
Crossing the Alps by the Mount Cenls
pass, or through the Mount Cenls tunnel, you are in a few hours set down at
Verona, Italy, and in a few minutes
begin examining one of the grandest
ruins of the world���the amphitheater.
The whole building sweeps around you
ln a circle. You stand in the arena
where the combat was once fought or
the race run, and on all sides the seats
rise, tier above tier, until you count
40 elevations, or galleries, as I shall see
fit to call them, In which sat the senators, the kings and the 25,001) excited
spectators. At the sides of the arena
and under the galleries are the cages
ln which the lions and tigers are kept
without food, until, frenzied with
hunger and thirst, they are let out upon some poor victim, who, with his
sword and alone, Is condemned to meet
them. I think that Paul himself once
stood In such a place, and that It
was not only figuratively, but literally,
that he had "fought with beasta at
The gala day has come. From all the
world the people are pouring Into Verona, Men, women and children, orators and senators, great men and
email, thousands upon thousands come,
until the first gallery Is full, and the
second, the third, the fourth, the fifth
���and all the way up to the twentieth,
ill the way up to the thirtieth, all the
way up to the fortieth. Every place Is
tilled. Immensity of audience sweeping
the great circle. Silence! The time for
the contest has come. A Roman official
leads forth the victim into the arena.
Let him get his sword with firm grip
into his right hand. The 25,000 sit
Breathlessly watching. 1 hear the door
it the side of the arena creak open.
Out plunges the half starved lion, his
tongue athirat for blood, and, with a
roar that brings all tpe galleries to
their feet he rushes against the sword
of the combatant. Do you know how
strong a stroke a man will strike when
his life depends upon the first thrust of
his blade? The wild beast, lame and
bleeding, Blinks back toward the side
of the arena; then, rallying his wasting strength, he comes up with fiercer
eye and more terrible roar than ever,
only to be driven back with a fatal
wound, while the combatant comes in
with stroke after stroke, until the monster Is dead at his feel, aud the 25,000
people clap tlielr hands and utter a
shout that makes the city tremble.
Sometimes the audience came to see
a race, sometimes to sue gladlatora
light each other, until the people, compassionate for the fallen, turned their
thumbs up as an appeal that the vanquished be spared, and sometimes the
combat was with wild beasts.
To an amphltheatrical audience Paul
refers wheu he says, "We are cojn-
passeU about with ao great a oloud of
The fact Is that every Christian man
has a lion to light. Yours ls a bad
tempera The gaius of the arena have 1
been Opened, and this tiger has come j
out to destroy your soul, it has lacer- i
a ted you with many a wound. You
have been thrown by It time and
again, but In tlie Strength ot liod you
have arisen ,to drive It back, i verily
believe yuu will conquer. I think that
the temptation ls getting weaker and
weaker. \'ou bave given It so many
wounds that the prospect Is that It will

the sands ot toe arena urink the blood
of your soul.
Vour Hon is the passion for strong
drink. You may have contended
against It 20 years, but It Js strong of
body and thirsty of tongue. Vou have
tried to fight It back with broken bottle or empty wine flask. Nay, that is
not tho weapon, With one horrible
roar he will seize thee by the throat
and rend thee limb from limb. Take
this weapon, sharp and keen, reach
up and get It from God's armory���the
sword of the spirit. With that thou
mayest drive him back and conquer.
But why specify when every man
and woman has a lion to fight? If
there be one here who has no besetting
Bin, Jet bim speak out, for him I have
offended, if you have not fought the
lion, it Is because you have let the
lion eat you up. Thia very moment the
contest goes on. The Trajan celebra-
where  10,000    gladiators  fought
not so terrific a struggle as that which
at this moment goes on In many a
���oul. That combat was for the life of
the body; this ls for the life of the soul.
That was with wild beasts from the
Jungie; this is wHh the roaring lion of
Men think when they contend against
an evil habit that they have to fight
It all alone. No. They atand in the
center of an immense circle of sympathy. ��� Paul had been reciting the
names of Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Joseph, Gideon and
Barak and then says, "Being compassed about with so great a cloud of
Before 1 get through, I will Bhow you
I that you fight in an arena, around
i whioh circle, in galleries above each
other, all the kindling eyes and all the
sympaithetlo hearts of the ages, and
at every victory gained there comes
down the thundering applause of a
great multitude that ho man can number. "Being compassed about with so
great a cloud of witnesses."
On the first elevation of the ancient
amphitheater, on the day of a celebration, sat Tiberius, or Augustus, or
the reigning king. So, In the great
arena of spectators that watch our
Struggles, and in the first divine gallery, as l shall call It, sits our king,
onu Jesus. On his head are many
crowns! The Roman emperor got his
plaoe by cold blooded conquests, but
our king hath come to his place by the
broken hearts healed, and the tears
wiped away, and 'the souls redeemed.
The Roman emperor sat, with folded
arms, Indifferent as to whether the
swordsman or the lion beat, but our
king's sympathies are all wrth us. Nay,
unheard of condescensions! I see him
come down from the gallery Into the
arena to help us In the fight, shouting,
until all up and down his voice is
heard: "Fear not! I will help thee! I
will strengthen thee by the right hand
of my power!"
They gave to the men in the arena,
in the olden time, food to thicken
their blood, so that It would How slowly, and that for a longer time the people might gloat over the scene. But
our King has no pleasure in our
wounds, for we are bone of hipbone,
flesh of his flesh, blood of his blood.
In all the anguish of our heart.
The Man of Sorrows bore a part.
and 11,000 wild beasts were slain, was
Once, in the ancient amphitheater, a
lion with one paw caught the combatant's sword -and with his other paw
caught his shield. The man took his
knife from his girdle and slew the
beast. The king, sitting In the gallery,
said, "That was not fair; the lion must
be slain by a sword." Other lions
were turned out, and the poor victim
fell. You cry, "Shame, same!" *a>t such
meanness. But the king, in this case,
Is our brother, and he will see that we
have fair play. He will forbid the
rushing out of more lions than we can
meet. He will not suffer us to be
tempted above that we are able. Thank
God! The King is in the gallery! His
eyes are on us. His heart is wlith us.
His hand will deliver us. "Blessed

I look again, and I see the angelic
gallery. There they are���the angel
that swung the sword at the gate of
Eden, the same that Ezekiel saw upholding the throne of God and from
whleh I look away, for the .splendor Is
insufferable. Here are the guardian
angels. That one watched a patriarch;
this one proteoted a child; that one
has been pulling a soul out of temptation. All these are messengers of
light. Those drove the Spanish armada on the rocks. This 'turned Sennacherib's living hosts Into a heap of
185,000 corpses. Those yonder chanted
the Christmas carol over Bethlehem
until the chant woke the shepherds.
Tnese at creation stood in the balcony
of heaven and serenaded the newborn
world wrapped ln swaddling clothes of
light And there, holier and mightier
than all, ls Michael, the archangel. To
command an earthly host gives dignity, but this one Is leader of the 20,000
chariots of God and of the ten thousand times ten thousand angels.
I think God gives command to the
archangel, and the archangel lo the
seraphim, and the seraphim to the
cherubim until all the lower orders of
heaven hear the command and go forth
on the high behest.
Now, bring on your lions. Who can
fear/ All the spectators In the angelic gallery are our friends. "He
shall give his angels charge over thee
to keep thee In all thy ways. They
shall bear thee up In their hands, lest
thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Ihou shalt tread upon the Hon and
adder; tho young Hon and the dragon
shalt thou trample under foot."
Though the arena be crowded with
temptations, we shall, with the angelic help, strike them down In the name
of God and leap cr their fallen carcasses. Oh, bending throng of bright,
angelic faces and swift wings and
lightning foot, I hall you to-day from
the dust and struggle of the arena!
I look again, and I see the gallery
of the prophets and apostles. Who
are those mighty ones up yonder?
Hosea and Jeremiah nnd Daniel and
Isaiah and Paul and Peter and John
and James. There sits Noah, waiting
for all tho world to come Into the ark,
and Muses, waiting till the last Hed
I sea shall divide, and Jeremiah, wait-
i Ing for the Jews to return, nnd John
uf tho Apocalypse, waiting for the
swearing of the angel that time shall
be no longer. Glorious spirits! Ye
were howled at; ye were stoned; ye
were spit upon. They have been In
the fight themselves, and they are nil
with us. Daniel knows all about lions.
Paul'fought With beasts nt Ephesus.
in the ancient amphitheater, the
people got fo excited that they would
shout from the galleries to the men la
the arena: "At It again!" "Forward!"
"One more stroke!" "Look out!" "Fall
back!" "Huzza, huzza!" So In that
gallery, prophetic and apostolic, they
cannot keep their peace. Daniel cries
out, "Thy God will deliver thee trom
the mouth of the lions!" David exclaims, "He will not Suffer thy foot to
be moved!" Isaiah calls out, "Fear
no,t! I am with thee! Be not dismayed!" Paul exclaims, "Vlotory through
our Lord Jesus Christ!" That throng
of prophets and apostles cannot keep
still. They make the welkin ring with
shouting and hallelujahs.'
I look again, and I see the gallery
of the martyrs. Who Is that? Hugh
Latimer, sure enoughl He would not
apologize for the truth preached, and
so he died, the night before swinging
from the bedpost in perfect glee at
the thought of emancipation. Who
are that army of 6,666? They are the
Theban legion who died for the faith.
Here ls a larger host tn magnificent
array���884,000���who perished for Christ
ln the persecutions of Diocletian.
Yonder ls a family group, Felicltas of
Rome and her children. While they
were dying for the faith she stood encouraging them. One son was whipped to death by thorns; another was
flung from a reck; another was beheaded. At last the mother became a
martyr. There they are, together���a
family group In heaven! Yonder ts
John Bradford, who said, ln the fire,
"We shall have a merry supper with
the Lord to-night!" Yonder is Henry
Voes, who exclaimed, as he died, "If
I had ten heads, they should all fall
oft for Christ!" The great throng of
the martyrsl They had hot lead poured down their throats; horses were
fastened to their hands, and other
horses to their leet, and thus they
weie pulled apart; they .had their
tongues pulled out by redhot pinchers;
they were sewed up In the skins of
animals, and then thrown to the dogs;
they were daubed with combustibles
and Bet on fire! If all the martyrs'
stakes that have been kindled could
be set at proper distances, they would
make the midnight, all the world over,
bright as noonday! And now they
sit yonder ln the martyrs' gallery. For
them the fires of persecution hnve
gone out. The swords are sheathed
and the mob hushed. Nfcw they
watch us with nn all obs<*vlng sympathy. They know all the pain, all
the hardship, all the anguish, all the
Injustice, all the privation. They
cannot keep still. They cry: "Courage! The fire win not consume. The
floods cannot drown. The lions cannot devour! Courage, down there in
the arena."
What, are they all looking? This
night we answer back the salutation
they give, and cry, "Hall, sons and
daughters of the fire!"
I look again, and 1 see another gallery, that of eminent Christians. What
strikes me strangely is the mixing in
companionship of those who on earth
could not agree,   lhere I see Martin
Luther,   and  beside    him    a    Roman
Catholic who looked  beyond  the superstitions of his church and is saved I
Thero  is  Albert  Barnes,   and  around
him the presbvtery who tried him for
heterodoxy!   Yonder Is Lyman Beecher and the church court that denounced him!   Stranger than all, there are
John    Calvin    and    James  Armlnlus!
Who would have thought they would
sit   so   lovingly   together?   There    are
George Whltefield    and     the    bishops
who would not let him come into their
pulpits   because   they   thought  him   a
fanatic.   There are the sweet singers
Toplady,   Montgomery,    Charles   Wesley, Isaac Watts and Mrs. Slgourney.
If heaven had had no music   before
they went up, they would have started  the singing.   And  there  the band
of  missionaries���David Abeel,   talking
of China redeemed, and John Scudder,
of Indian saved, and David Bralnerd
of   the   aborigines   evangelized,    and
Mrs. Adoniram Judson, whose prayers
for  Burma  took heaven  by violence.
All these  Christians are looking into
the arena.   Our struggle is nothing to
theirs.   Do we, in Christ's cause, suffer    from    the   cold ?    They    walked
Greenland's   icy   mountains.   Do    we
suffer from the heat? They sweltered
in the tropics.   Do    we get latigued?
They  fainted,  with none  to  care for
them but cannibals.    Are    we   persecuted?   They    were      anathematized.
And as they look  from  their gallery
and see us falter ln  the presence of
the lions I seem to hear Isaac Watts
addressing us in his old hymn, only a
little changed:
They see the triumph from afar,
And seize it with their eye.
When that illustrious day shall rise,
And all thine armies shine
In robes of victory through the skies
The glory shall be thine.
My hearers, shall we die in the arena
or rise to join our friends in the gallery? Through Christ we may come off
more than conquerors. A soldier dying
in the hospital rose up in bed the last
moment and cried: "Here! Here!" His
attendants put him back on his pillow
and asked him why he shouted "Here!"
"Oh, I heard the roll-call of heaven,
and 1 was only answering to my
name." I wonder whether, after tfcls
battle of life is over, our names will
be called in tbe muster roll of the pardoned and glorified, and with the joy
of heaven breaking upon our souls we
shall cry: "Here! Here!"

Undertaker's Machine Has Never
Spoken a Profane Word.
Must you be carried to the skies
On flowery beds of ease,
While others fought to win the prize,
Or sailed through bloody seas?
Toplady   shouts in his old hymn:
Your harps, ye trembling saints,
Down from the willows take,
Loud to their praise of love divine,
Bid every string awake.
While Charles Wesley, the Methodist,
breaks forth in his favorite words, a
little varied:
A charge to keep you have,
A God to glorify;
A never dying soul to save,
And fit it for the sky!
I look again, and I see the gallery of
our departed. Many of those ln the
other galleries we have heard of, but
these we know. Oh, how familiar their
faces! They sat at our tables, and we
walked to the house of God In company. Have they forgotten us? Those
fathers and mothers started us on the
road of life? Are they careless as to
what becomes of us? And those children���do they look on with stolid indifference as to whether we win or lose
this battle for eternity? Nay. I see
that child running his hand over your
brow and saying, "Father, do not fret;
mother, do not worry." They remember
tlie day thoy left us. They remember
the agony of the last farewell. Though
years ln heaven, they know our faces.
They remember our sorrows. They
Speak our names. They watch this
light for heaven. Nay, 1 see them rise
Up and leap over aud wave before us
their recognition and encouragement.
That gallery Is not full. They are |

ringing down from the gallery, crying,
"lie thou faithful uiuo death, and you
shall have a crown."
Hut here 1 pause, overwhelmed with
the majesty uml joy of the scene. Gallery of tlie king! Gallciy of angels! Gallery of prophets and apostles! Gallery
of friends and kindred! Oh, majestic
circles of light ahd love! Throngs!
Throngs! Throngsl How shall we
.stand the gaze of the universe? Myriads of eyes beaming on us! Myriads

How shall we ever dare to sin again?
How sliall we ever become discouraged
again? How shall we ever feel lonely
again? With God for us, and angels for.
us, the prophets and apostles for us,
and the great souls of the ages for us,
and our glorified kindred for us, shall
we give up the-light and die? No, Son
of God, who didst die to save us! No,

A tuneral service by phonograph,
says the New York Herald, is, in the
opinion of " Ate" Stilwcll, nn undertaker, much more ettectlve than that
by word of mouth. Ho found that out
when the " Fat Baby" died nt Coney
Island liiHt summer, nnd ho has had
several other phonograph funerals be*
sidcB. Ho lives at GrnveBOnd, not far
from Coney Island, and although he Is
getting along in years uo'w hu is as
progressive a man ns can be tound.
Ho takes up new Ideas liko a magnet*
lzod hammer docs tacks,
Thero was n phonograph In " Abo"
Stllwcll's house beforo the Instrument
had found Its way to tho Coney Island
saloons and steamboat plerB. Mrs. Stilwcll takes a serious view of life, nnd
sho would not permit tho phonograph
which her husband brought home to
havo nny Irreverent cylinders. Hence
It Is thnt tho phonograph which rests
on the Stilwell parlor table next to
the album, and the county histOTy
with the undertaker's picture In It,
hns never said anything ribald. Tho
notes of such tunes hs " Oh, Uncto
John," " Her Gojden Hair" and tho
" Sidewalks of New Yolrk" have never
teen ground trom thc pious throat ot
Its flaring trumpet.
"That phonograph," said "Abe" tfl>
mo, the other any, " has never said a
cuss wurd or Bung a gay song. Why
shouldn't it beall right to go through
funerals and Buch ? Some day if this
world keeps on progressing, they will
te using them for weddings, and, after
all, I don't see why there should be-
so much difference."
The progress.ve undertaker doesn't
think that there ls anything remarkable In a funeral service by phonograph. Ho is the Inventor of the new
method, and, liko a man who ls la
advance of his time, he doesn't pause
to consider that the world ls a Uttle
slow sotnettmes. Ho looked at me
pityingly when I asked him about
how ho had the tuneral service ovor
tho Fat Baby by phonograph.
*' Young man," ho asked, " do you
livo about here?"
" Yes, sir," I answered meekly. " At
lcaBt, I've lived lu Ncw York for the
paat few yearB,"
" You have V" he said, " and yet you
say you never heard ol a phonograph
And he shook his head sadly and
looked at his handsome wifo in a way
which seemed to say, " Talk about
ignorance, well I"
His wife Is tall nud handsome.
There Is no Idea of her husband ln
which she dues nojt share. Mr. Stilwell then told tho story of how the
Fat Baby was decently burled by his
aid and: that of Mr. Edison.
"It was ln the summer time." he
begun, "and all the preachers were
uwuy. They think that eo much
devil comes to Coney ln the hot
months that there is precious little use for them. The Fat Baby was
only a tew months old, and weighed
IIU pounds. She caught tho pneumonia and died. The mother woe a
mite ot a little English woman, and
sho had been reared up among good
people in the Old Country, I had
charge ot the tuneral. I couldn't find
a preacher to save me. When I told
the little woman about It she felt
mighty bad. I had beon a little forgetful that day. All of a eudden I
remembered that I had a preacher
talk a funeral service lato the phonograph Just before he went on his
vacation.- No, I won't tell you his
name. I promise*! hlin that I never
would. I explained tt all to tho baby's mother, and, sho Bald that ehe
would liko the plan first rate.
"It was very simple. Tho services
wero held here la tho double parlor.
Tho coffin was placed at the back
and Just behind It waB tho. phonograph, with the big trumpet projecting over. Thero was an extra
loud needle, too. The mourners wero
all around the room. Somo ol them
thought that it wus strango ut first
but they got used to It.
"Mrs. Stilwell was tho operator,
and kept changing the cylinders for
oach part ol the service. Tho words
wero very plain, and sounded JiiBt
liko tlio imman voice. There wasn't
nny 'hemming' and 'hawing' and 'nh-
ln,' cither.     It went right along."
Then, lit tho reipiest ol her lius-
lianil, Mrs. .Stilwell went through the
phonograph service. First,- the phonograph played in a strong, pure-
toned voice. A sharp, ringing voice
then announced that tha Amphlon

God, to Thee.' Tho music was tliie-
ly sung, nud tho slight metallic ring
Whleh it had gavo the effect of voices

BowiiHtalrs I had been settling witli

It was in front of the chapel In
Lambeth Road that I stopped, as
this conviction took possession of
my mind, and Just-at that moment
I caught sight of Philip coming down
from the Kensington' Road, with his
bag of tools ln his hantf. \
"Is our little friend still living?" he
asked; and they were his first words.
"Yes,"   eald I; "her   husband    has
"That Is well," said he.
I went home with Philip to his lodg
ings, perplexed with doubt as to
whether I ought to toll him of my
discovery or not. I decided that It
would bo best to hold my tongue.
As It was not yet tlmo to go to
tho theatre, I eat with Philip while
ho took his tea, which a servant
brought In on hearing his voico.
Presently there was a knock nt
the door, and Madge camo in, bringing little Bobby wtth lier, and we
knew by that and her grief thnt It
was all over.
"She is gone," said Mndge, smothering her sobs. Philip took her hand

poor child, comprehending nothing but
seeing everybody in grief, was on the
verge of bursting into tears  also.
Soon afterwards Mr. Burns came in.
I never saw a man so overcome with
sorrow. Hla eyos wero blinded with
tears; lie could uot speak for some

did after a while.
Of ua four Madgo was the only
one who had any self-possession in.
thene moments. She took little Bobby
on hor lap, and sitting down beside
Mr, Burns, began to talk to the
child, wlio for once took little notice
of her, but kept Ms eyes fixed in
wonder  upon his father.
"He has mamma's eyes," said
Madge, tenderly. And then: "Will
you go to papa, Bobby ?" she
The little one stretched out his
tiny arms, and tho father took hlin,
ami as he felt the tiny soft hands
clinging to his neck the tears rolled
down his cheeks afresh. But they
relieved him, and he grew calmer.
Then  Madge said:
"We cannot offer youi a room, but
Bobby sliall stay with us till you can
take him with you. I will send over
for his cot."
"God bless you for all you have done
for me and mine," said Mr. Burns.

time for me to cross tlie water, I
rose also, and we went away together. Madge g;ivc him her hand,

did Philip offer his. Then I perceived
that Philip knew ho was a thief,
and Mr. Burns felt his position. It
Was strange to reflect that those
who had most befriended his wife
were the most injured by bis wrongdoing.
Ho walked beside me in silence for
somo minutes, then ho said:
"I think we have uiet before; your
name  Is Holderness, I believe?"
"Yes," 1 replied; "wo met in Mr.
Motley's <>rflce." Tliere was a pause,
and he spoko again :
"The lodger ou the first floor told
me that my poor wife would have
beeu turned into tho street but for
Mrs.  Harlowe's kindness."
"Yes, that is quito true," I answered. "She must have been turned
���jut and her little bit of furnHun*
so.d unless she had broken Into thc
sum slio had saved to join you in
America. And I think she would have
suffcrod anything rather than abandon  that one hope."
He bowed liis head, and could say
"Yes," I resumed. "Mrs. Harlowe Is
the best woman In the world; tliere
are no bounds to her loving sympathy. And Mr. Harlowo has a generous dlspositlou too. He Is a brave-
hearted  man���a true gentleman."
He did not reply to this, nnd my
thoughts taking another turn, I
presently said:
"Wero you not aware that your
wife was In ill-health before you received  Mrs. Harlowe's message?"
"No, no. Would to Heaven 1 had
been! She would not add to my anxiety. Always she wrote hopefully. She
told me she iuul saved money, aud
would come to me, aud when I received no letter for ten days I believed sho had started. My hopeful,
loving Mary !"
Striving to forget tho loss, he
ohnnged   the subject,
"How is it." he asked, "that Mr.
and Mrs. Harlowo are living lu Lambeth ?"
"You have not heard what happened after your departure?"
"No; I havo heard nothing. I do
not know what followed my departure. Mr. Motley promised he would
keep my offence secret for 2A hours;
that enabled me to escape, and he-
fore news could reach me I had left
Bremeil for New York."
"Mr. Motley knew of your offence
LU hours before lie made it known!"
I exclaimed.

saie after Mr. Motley had allowed me
to abscond with all that was In it.
And bo pa-yment was suspended. That
Is so?"
"Yes," ea4d I; "that is Mr. Motlety's
explanation." And suddenly divining
the truth, I added: "Was that a
falsehood? Bid you not take the
money ?" ,
"I did take money," he answered;
"but never mind about that. Leave
me out of the question. Tell me what
I told him all: how Philip and his
wife had given up all they had to satis y conscientious scruples, and how
Mr. Motley had overcome tho difficulty.
"And Motley is going on the same
aa before?" he nsked.
"He Is better off than ever he was,
for tho business  is all fn his hands.
And all Harlowe's' money besides."
"He hOfl not refunded that?"
"Not one  farthlofif."
And now, na it was getting late, I
hailed a red 'bus.
"One word," he sn.id- "Where can 1
find you to-morrow?"
I gave him my address and we
parted. I went through my duties as
usual, but it may.be Imagined that my
mind waa more occupied with what
lind passed between Mr. Burns nnd
myself than with tho music I conducted.
I did not stir oub or' my lodgings
the next morning���not even to run
round to my friends In the Lambeth
Road���lor fear Mr. Burns might! call
and go nway in my absence. I felt
sure that ho had not demanded my
address without grave reason, therefore, I wub surprised, as tlio time wore
on, that ho did not make his appearance. I was minded to ga round to
Madge, nnd see if ho were there,
thinking perhaps that he had lost my
addr&ss, but then I reflected that if

about, not knowing what to think or

were sunken, and the orbits were
dark ; he looked terribly 111 and old.
"You ha.ve seen your child to-day ?"
I said, when we wore, seated In my
"Yes : I twos with Mrs. and Mr. Harlowo early this morning," he replied.
"We have nrrunged to bury my wife
I made some reply, I know not what,
n.nd then there was a pause, after
which he spoke.
"May I ask you," he said, "to tell
me again as literally an possible ull
thn-t you know concerning tho stopping of Motley & Harlowe's bank ?"
I got out my diary, which I never
omit to write up belore going to bed,
and from tills I gave him all the particulars as they came to my knowledge, a,nd as 1 had set them down
there, with the days of tlie week and
the dn,te of the month, all agreeing
with tlie calendar at tlie end of the
book. It Is ni good tiling to keep a
diary ; one never knows how useful details, even the most lnslgnl.leant, may
After hearing all I had to read,
and noting some ot tho particulars,

" Yes���that was shown by the.police. But still, I cannot understand.

I stopped hlin, promising that the
child should be cared for. I kuew full
well that JIadge would not part with
little Cobby, and I saw that Burns
dared not ask this service of those
who had suffered by him.
Ho rose, thanking me, and went
away abruptly, as If to avoid fur-
ther explanations,
When 1 came down Irom the orchestra between the acts that
night, a 'messenger brought me a
card, nnd said tho sender was waiting nt tho stage-door.
Oa the card I read���
Eaton Square.
And John Motley I found by tho
stage door���nearly filling.up the narrow passage with his groat body.
" Shan't keep you a moment, Holderness," he said, grasping my hand.
without his asking, by a" hot-headed
and impulsive partner."
"That Is very likely," said 1: "you
are quite within your legal right iu
keeping  the money."
"Yes ; nevertheless, I have all along
wished to be generous."
".So you told me, sir, but as you
pointed out, you are not free to dispose as you like of the firm's money
now that Mrs. Motley has put in lier
money and taken a share in the business."
He looked at me again with that
half-amused, half-contemptuous expression on his face.
"That's very true, Holderness.
You've got a long head."
I did not know whether to take
this  compliment as serious or not.
"To come to th<> point," he pursued;
"I nm determined to do the right
thing by Phil, 1 won't let him lose
by his principles. He shall have every
penny-piece he handed over to the
creditors,"���dropping his voice, lie nd-
iled, tn a less generous key, as he
knocked the ash ol liis cigar���"and
something more!" Aftor n pause, he
continued: "The difficulty Is to make
him accept paymeut from me. 1 know
his character; so do you.

said, 'Phil, I want to repay you the

" Yen. I will be at homo about three

" Thanks���thank you very much. I

lie said, giving my hand a shake at
each break In the sentence as If to
Impress the words upon me.
" I won't forget," said I. Then he
gavo my hand a final shake, and left
me with another astonishing subject
ior consideration.
Mrs. Burns was burled the uext
morning at Brompton Cemetery.
Philip, Mndge, aud I, with Mr. Bums
and his child wero there, witli what
sorrow In our hearts can be Imagined.
When it wus all over we returned to
tho Harlowo's lodgings.
Burns did not stay tliere, though
Madge pressed him to take dinner
with us.
He had business to do, and added���
"If all Is well I shall go to Liverpool to-night with my child." Then
he left.
After dinner Madge, with mournful
resignation, began to got Bobby's
clothes together and pack them up,
with certain things that had belonged
to poor Mrs. Burns whicli she thought
the husband might like to keep as
souvenirs���a bunch of flowers that
had stood by her bedside and gladdened .her the last morning of her
life, the noatly-mendcd gloves she
had worn, and trifles liko that.
I went to my lodgings to await
tho visit of Mr. Motley.
I was sitting near the window as
tho clock struck three, and Just us
thc door-bell rang I caught sight of
Mr. Burns dn thc opposite sido of the
road. That seemed to mo odd.
At the door I found Jlr. Motley, ln

"Yes;   he let me escape  In   'mercy j tnken on the Wth ?

astounded by this piece of unexpected

Jlr. Burns.
"Well, Mr. Burns," I replied, somewhat uharply, "that happened which
I think you might have foreseen.

"Yes,** said I, "before you took It."

standing still ln tho samo place
"I meant." I replied, and not without
irritation, "that there was nothing In

"I cannot clear my head quite.   But I
Ho sat ln thoughtful slloncu for fully two minutes, then I said:
" I do not see how to reconcile Jlr.
���Motley's statement with yours.'
" No,'' ho responded. " One of us
clearly has made a tulsc statement.'-
" Can you provo tho truth of your
statement V"   I asked.
" I can produco enough proof to
show that Jlotley has suppressed thc
truth. I have been engaged about
that this afternoon. I can bring
wltncses to nnow that ho was* at
my apartments In Dalston at 10
o clock on the 13th, nnd tho books of
tho Charing Cross Hotel show that
he slept there on tho 14th."
" And he did alt this to enable you
to escape out of consideration for
your wife?'' I  asked, incredulously.
"So lie made mo believe."
" If you had taken a trifle," I snid,
" a generous man might go out of his
way to screen you from tho terrible
consequences of capture. But for the
sum of ninety or n hundred thousand
pounds���I cannot understand It.'*
" I do not want you to understand
It, JIr. Holderness," he said with emphasis.     "I have not,come here to
black suit; looking out as I closed
the door, I perceived Jlr. Burns a
little way up tlio street on the other
side, standing with liis eyes Ilxed on
the house.
Mr. Jlotley cnrrled a packet In his
hand. Ho laid it ou the tabic, and
throwing himself in my arm-chair,
took off his hat and blew a long
breath, tm It coming up the stairs
had exhausted him.
"if there's a bottlo of soda In tlie
house, let's have it, there's a good

of his mouth and his hands spread

"lie's lu very good health," I replied.
"Aud  Madge V"
".She Is also iu excellent health."
"And you arc just as fond of 'em

"Yes,"   I replied.
".So am 1," said lie, drily,with his j
eyes still oa the ceiling.
'"I'he moro you know them the more
yoii must admire them," said I.
"Yes, except when they do foolish
things," said he, In the same dry
tone. "If l'hil had only behaved with

liavo been avoided. They're horridly

"They aro very poor indeed," I

"Well, It's no good crying over

1 looked at hlin In amazement, lie
met my eyes steadily, with a queer
expression on Ills great, broad lace,
and a little raising oi the eyebrows,
I as 11 ho were saying to hlmsell���"You
are a queer, old lellow, you are."
"Yos," he pursued; "I've had this
affair oa my mind long enough, and I
must get It olf my mind. I can't
sleep o'nlghts for thinking of Phil
nnd his wife, and for a man of my
temperament that's no joke, it
don't seem Just that one partner
sliould profit by the misfortunes ol
the other, does it?
"No, It does not," I replied stoutly.
"No; it don't seem right that we
should have the money which he had
a perfect legal right t"" keep."
"That Is exactly what 1 have
thought." i
"It's what any man of good iccling

was not his by right���especially ns I
see he no longer looks upon me as a
friend.   D'ye follow me, Holderness?'
"Yos," I replied.
"Woll, do you think my notion is
about right ?"
"Yes," said I. "I am very doubtful
if Philip would take tlie money from

"Ho must take it from somebody.
sn,ld ho with more earnestness: than
he had yet shown.   "And 11 he won't
tako It irom me he must take It from
"From me!" cried I, in amazement.
"Yes, from you," said he, firmly.
"You recognize that this restitution
ought to be made, don't you ?"
"Yes," said I.
"Very well, then ; you must act as
a trustee. I shall pay the money to
you on your written promise to employ it on behalf of Philip Harlowe
and his wife, If tliey refuse to accept
It, they simply burden you with money
that' you cannot use lor yourself.
Whatever happens, 1 shall feel that I
have dono all that is possible to make
them receive It."
I was struck witli the Ingenuity or
this arrangement.
"Now, Holderness," he said, puffing
quickly at his cigar, "wlll-you act as
trustee for your frienils ?"
"Yes," said I, without hesitation.
"Thank you," said he, in a tone of
real satisfaction.
Drawing his chair up to the table,
ho slipped oif the india-rubber bands
and opened the packet.
I never saw such a sight ia my ilic!
The packet was composed of nothing
but bank notes. They were done up
In bundles, according to tlielr denomination, live-pound notes by themselves, the tens by tlieiusclvcH, and so
on, aud each bundle wus held together
by an clastic band.
"Now, then, you must count them,
said Jlr. Motley.
"Why, 1 shall never finish," said I.
"Oh, yes, you will," ho replied, and,
taking a bundle under hla hnnd, he
counted thom off, two, four, six, and
so on, multiplying the number in Unbundle by the value of each note.

Ingrowing mill, or " onglc lucnrue,"
as the Preach call it, is, as ls well
known, a very palaful affection, and
unfortunately the operation necessary
lor it�� cure Is often dreaded by the
patients, although local and general
anesthetics are employed to render
the avulsion as painless as possible.
A very simple method has been frequently employed by a confrere witli
constant success. It consists in painting the offending portion of the nnil
with a warmed forty per cent, solution of caustic, potash, In a few seconds the upper horny layer is rendered so soft that It can bo easily
removed by a piece of broken glass
used as a scraper. Tlie application
of tlio solution and the scraping' is
continued until nothing but an exceedingly thin portion of the null remains, which can bu easily removed
by a small scissor.

The plant food in the weed U not
available fortuity like that which
it took from the soil during its
growth. Tlie timo wheu a weed
can be destroyed with the greatest
benefit ia Immediately after It -has
germinated; tliis is also the easiest
time to kill it. Even the thistle, at
Its start, is as easily killed as any
of tlie annuals.   ���
To stand still while the world is
moving onward is the same as going
backward. The preservation ol the
straw and fodder in good condition
la the thing Which now confronts the
farmer, whether he has full and
bountiful cropa or whether he has
not much else thnn that straw and
fodder. Ou the tine hand ho can save
his grain; on the uther he eau do
without it.
Often the difference between a good
ami an Indifferent yield of wheat is
due to a difference in methods. July
and August aro favorable months
for beaklng the ground, aa it is theu
doue easily, nnd soon settles into a
firm seed lied. Following a good rain,
apply the harrow, and tliis will make
a. Hue soil, which will retain the moisture.
Wixty per cent, of the world's supply of sugar Is contributed by tho
sugar beet, much as this fact may
aurprise us. Most of us would declare
that wo had never tasted beet sugar,
for, of course, wo would know it if
we had! This does away with the
fallacy of beet sugar being yet but
an experiment.
L'rystalizable sugar, or caae sugar,
ils it Is called, is always the same,
whether extracted from the sugar
cane, beets, maple trees, sorghum or
anything else capable of producing it.
It looks the same, tastes the same,
and is the same. The cane belt is
limited, but the sugar belt is unlimited.
The U, S. crops this year will be a
Btrong stimulus toward the raising of
cattle and hogs. The export demand
for corn is light, and there Is no other
method by which such profitable returns can be procured. Stock raising witl eee sueh a revival as has not
been noticed for a long period.
From Consular reports we learu
that from the large quantities of apples received from other countries
Lato Europe American apples command the highest prices. Forty-five
per cent, of the wheat and 90 per
cent, of the flour in the Liverpool
district come from the United
States. The cattle are superior, but
an much can not be said of the sheep.
The hay crop oi' tho United States
la only second to that of any other
crop in value. Departmental agricultural statistics for 1800 givo the
value of the corn crop, in round numbers, at [~,92 million dollars, hay crop
571 millions, and cotton crop 285
Animals can not thrive their best
-when food I.s given them at any time
of day or of night which happens to
suit tho convenience of tlio feeder. Irregular feeding disturbs and deranges thi; organs of dig-estlou and
assimilation, so that they fail to make
tho most out of tho food supplied. If
food is given before its regular time
thoro is overloading, and the organs
are put to work before they havo recovered from tho previous meal. If
(lolayod, the animal Is apt to eat too
much and too rapidly ; there is poor
mastication and digestion, and, there-
lore, there Is loss and harm.
II we stint a ration we fail to make
all which is possible out of the food
and oat of the animal. It is food
consumed over and above whdt is
leeded to sustain life which gives a
return of profit; so that fullest prollt
ollows fullest Judicious feeding.
Variety of food necessarily lesions waste, for the animal then gets
all tho elements essential to animal growth. A continued ration of
but a single Item will probably supply
some elements to excess, nnd that
which is uot made use of is wasted;
ami a. variety conduces to a good appetite, too.
The more we look Into tho fodder
question the more one is convinced
that if the intelligent, economical
farmer will save everything which
grows on his farm, suitable for forage, in 10 .years he may bo independent, able to keep a, years supply on hand to tide off nn occasional
off year when it comes.
Why not save time and labor by
having some old wagon standing near
the stables, and a plank reaching it
on whicli a wheelbarrow can be run,
that tin' manure may U; dumped therein directly, to lie hauled away as often as full, and taken to the fields
direct? Uoslde, tlm wastes of tho
barnyard win ho avoided.
Bright, fresh straw, with thr? chaTf,
uolls better when haled, nnd may be
stored under a shed and hauled off
in the winter. In this shape It Is
more convenient for feeding, and will
Havo a lot of good liny which will

animals, hut Improves the manure for
tho fields as  well.
In Franco thoy use donkeys ln
place of our cheap horses, while In
Belgium thoy use dogs. That country
has 50,000 draught dogs, drawing
milk, broad and vegetable enrts. Tin;
pure brods of the valuable kinds "of
dogs are worth too much to put to
BUCll ignoblo uses. Tbey raise none
lint the finest nf horses, Importing

Tho station at Lafayette, Indiana,
finds that, other things being equal,
steers fed on cut clover hay will make
a. better growth than those fed on
the whole hay, and in their experiment of a hundred days the. gain wns
nearly 50 per cent. A slight amount
of exercise was found beneficial during the fattening process.
Regularity In feeding procures rapid
growth In chicks. More food of the
same kind given at long but irregular
Intervals will not give them the same
vigor of size. The man who follows
haphazard ways in anything these
times will get behind the procession.

There is a surplus of small potatoes
this year, and tliey can be utilized as
poultry food. Boil, mash and mix with
meal and bran; feed while warm. Feed
moderately, ami not every day, remembering that hens need a variety.
Too many potatoes will make light

Keep tlie older ge;-se and sell the
goslings. The older ones arc the best
i breeders, the best layers and grow
the most and best feathers, while the

There is nothing like going to market with attractive goods. Kggs
should be cleau and in tidy packages;
but do not make a rule of washing
them, Tor it takes away the appearance of freshness. If the soiled spots
are wiped off "before they become
stains, nothing else is required.
Give the hens all possible freedom,
and there will be less trouble with
soft shelled eggs, and less danger of
their being eaten. The exercise and
the lime the fowls pick up, in various
forms, aro both essential in overcoming these troubles.
If the hens stop lading at this season of the year, as is uot unusual, a
change of feed for a lew days will
often stajt them into business again.
Always, aad with any variety of hens,

should thoso
who uro broken
down in health, weak and wearied,
and nigh unto death otton, have their
condition aggravated by remedies
that do thom no good. Sometimes,
as Mr. Ephraim Tallman, wljo is a
retired farmer, highly respected In
tho community, and now liviug in
Merrickville, has said, temporary relief Is secured. But the reaction
that comes from disappointment is
apt to sot tlie patient back further than he was before.
Tho feature of South American
Nervine is its permanent healing powers. It Is a medicine whicli strikes
at tho root ot disease, curing tlie
deranged parts at the nerve centres,
and these cured, disease cannot exist.
Mr. Tallman found tliis to ho the
case. He says; "Two years ago this
fall I had an attack of la grippe,
and I havo never'been well since. My
bowels, I may sny, became perfectly
dormant, and I tried a great many
medicines, and got just temporary relief. But it was very temporary. Mr,
E. Errett, lumber merchant, of this
town, advised me to try South America^ Nervine, and I must, and can,
truthfully say that I havo received
moro benefit from tt than from all
tbo other remedies I have ever taken.
I can honestly recommend It, as 1
consider It an excellent remedy. I

than for a number of years, and I
give this testimony freely of my own
accord, wishing South American .Wr-

A New York Doctor Who Spends His
Lifo Absorbing Alcohol.
"There is a former physician living
in this city whose present occupation
Is thut of scientific dipsomaniac. He is
a Scotchman about GO years old and
��� lives in a quiet uptown flat on the
west side.
'. He. camo tu this country UO years
ago,*.uad practiced 'medicine successfully for fifteen years ia Sun Francisco. It was there that lie developed
his extraordinary appetite for new
sensations In the form of liquid stimulants. The doctor lias never been
married, and when lie had accumulated what he thought sufficient wealth
to enable him to live well and indulge
his pcculalr appetite lie migrated
east, and lias resided in tliis city at
intervals sine** theu.
Every pursuit has had to give way
to his hobby. He does not practice
., his profession aay more, except at
rare Intervals, when he will attend
to one of his few old and favored
. Dr. Wattson Is a short, slout man,
with a round face and short curly
hair, whicli has once been yellow. It
is now mostly gray. His little bluo
eyes have tl' shrewd twinkle iu spite
of his years of inebriation. His hands
are short and pudgy, with fingers
like bunches of bananas. He has a
queer habit of closing and unclosing'
them wliile talking.
Like all eccentric beings, lie hates
notoriety, and it wns with difficulty
thnt he was Induced to talk about
himself a few days ago.
"Probably somo one else will give
you a fantastic account of me if I
don't talk myself," he said, "so I will
tell you anything you want to know,
provided you don't ask mc for reasons'. That annoys me.
"Travelling was the cause of my
making a study of inebriation," continued the doctor, "and that is the
only why or wherefore you! will get."
Here he clutched convulsively at
"When a young maa I waa a ship's
surgeon, and have visited many countries.
"I have drunk arrack with Malays
and Hindoos, koumiss with Tartars,
eaten hasheesh witli Persians ��� and
smoked opium witli Chinese, from
mandarins to coolies.
" No matter how backward in the
march of civilization any race may
be, they have all heen ablo to evolve
somo method o( muking fluids of a
more cheering nature than water.
Tho aborigines of Australia, the Pacific islanders, and even the Uttle
troglodytes of Central Africa have
all got tlielr special firewater. I
have tried them all and believe I
have experienced more varied sensa-
, tions in the use of intoxicants than
any living man."
This was said in a quietly triumphant manner, such as a modest' man
would uso In announcing that ho had
annexed tho north pole or some
equally useful article.
When asked If he felt no 111 effects
from his prolonged course of " experiments,'' us he calls his never-ending
drunks, he replied:
" No. Science teaches us that the
use of any alcoholic liquor ln large
quantities and for long periods ls
injurious. Experience shows this to
be true ln the thousands of instances,
but the accepted theories are all
wrong In my case.
" Of course, I do uot get into a
stato of beastly drunken Insensibility while pursuing my studies," continued the Ilttlo doctor, rapidly making clutches at handfuls of air as he
spoke. "My plan ls to take things
easy and to get nil possible pleasure
out of every mouthful of whatever I
This strange man Indulges In solitary orgies, which generally last six
or seven days. During that time he
locks himself ln his bedroom and will
not seo or even.spenk to anyone.
" Won't yoii loo*k, at my den 7"
asked thc scientific drunkard, working his fat fingers rapidly. He led the
way into an Inner room.
It was fitted as a bedroom, with
additions. A narrow tablo stood by
tho side of tho bed. Bewildering numbers of bottles stood on tho table.
Wines In great quantities and of all
descriptions were there. Bare old
port and claret. Hungarian wines in
.strange-looking flagons, aged Ciilunti
and Lachryniu Christl could all ho
seen. Thero were also spirits of
every kind, from tho various brands
of whiskey,.. brandy, rum and schnapps to arrack and other fiery products of aula's ingenuity in devising
means to get drunk. Other bottles
held bitters, tonics and materials for
tho concoction of mixed and fancy
drinks, Kvery bottle, except those
used for mixing drinks, had a long
tube and moutlipieco .attached to
Its neck. ,
" This is where I conduct my experiments," ho said, as lie chuckled and
made frantic grabs at the atmosphere,
seemingly delighted at the thoughts
of past and future revels.
He then went on to explain that he
never rises from his couch when engaged in his researches. The various
tubes enabled him to absorb his beloved nectars Just as comfortably as
a child draws Its refreshment from a
nursing bottle.
" Tho most Interesting of all branches of drinking," Bald the doctor, "ls
ether Intoxication as practised in the
north of Ireland. Ether is one of the
products of the large distilleries
there, and, being easily proourod by
the workmen, Is largely used Instead
of spirits.
" It is preferred to whiskey because
a man can get comfortably drunk
and sober again on ether 'in two
hours.  This enables one to have six
good times in twelve hours, a thing
not attainable by other means."
Replying to a question ns to the
manner in whicli ether Is used, he
: " Tliey drink .It. Inhalation would
produce anesthesia. The effect when
swallowed*is rfulte different; It Is a
strung stimulant; its nauseous taste
is the principal objection to its use,
and I don't, drink much of it.
" Still, if tt were possible to hnve
its effects combined, with the delicious
flavors of some" rare old wines the
result would be perfect. I nm preparing for a series ot experiments
with that end in view."
This eccentric man imagines he ls
doing a great work, nnd makes copious notes nfter each luxurious drinking bout.
His Intellect does not appear to be
affected ln other ways, and his conversation Ir most relined and brU-

However much nerve n young man
must possess beforo he can ask a lady
to become his wife, it certainly requires more for him to work himself
up to that pitch where he can unblush-
Ingly ask her father for his consent
in the matter. Ono Sunday night lost
summer Bugby was drawing near the
abode of his affianced when he saw
her father ln the garden. What better
opportunity would ever present itself? With.a trembling step and a
giddy brain he approached to within
ten feet of where the old gentleman
was seated, and gasped, " Please, sir."
The person addressed made no re-
spouse, if n force-pump of forty
horse.power had been ejecting hot
blood into Bugby's hoad it could not
have felt worse.   He moved forward
about two Inches.   "Please, I���I "
This was as far as he got, for his
tongue seemed to be about as thioK
as a .London fog. The person addressed did n|Dt seem to move a;
muscle. Bugby moistened his feverish
tongue, and then began where he left
olf, "I love yo���". He could proceed no farther. Composing himself
a little by a desperate effort he
began nt the beginning���" Please sir,
I love your daughter and "    This
was about one-third of what he had
to say, but It seemed far less, there
was so mueh remaining. It was now
getting quite dark. The old gentleman's Indifference made Bugby more
desperate, and he determined to finish
what he had to say, come life or
death. " Please, sir, 1 love your
daughter, and wish to make her my
wife. Do you give your consent?"
And with the question he rushed forward and flung himself on his knees
before the old gentleman. Just then
a gust of wind came along, and the
old gentleman, who proved to be a
scarecrow placed there to frighten the
birds from some strawberries, fell
over on Bugby and nearly frightened
him to death, for he thought that
tho parent of his adored was so
iwratlilul at his presumption that he
was intent upon making mincemeat of
her suitor. After a furious struggle
with his foe had proceeded for Bome
minutes, Bngby rolling about and getting covered with mud, he discovered
the real nature of his antagonist, and
sadly picked up his hat and went
home.   Bugby is still unmarried.
It ls related of a successful Glasgow
merchant that, sight-seeing ln Paris
once, he lost his way. For a considerable time he wandered about
trying to got bock to his hotel. The
hours went by. He never could speak
French, and his Glasgow English only
brought a smile and a shake of the
" Oh for a body wl a guid Scotch
tongue in his head!'' he sighed.
Then come a "happy thought.'' By
signs he bought a basket, measure,
and berries of a trim Frenchwoman,
and, shouldering the stock, went
along the street shouting:
"'Fine grossets, a bawbee the pine;
fine grossets, a bawbee the pine.'
Tlie crowd laughed at the mad Briton, but the familiar cry soon brought
some Scotsmen on the scene, and the
merchant was able to retire, from
business and smoke his pipe in the
bosom of his family, thankful that he
had found real Scotsmen ln his hour
of need.
A Presbyterian Church, at a place
not far from Glasgow, was ln debt,
and the minister's stipend was a
gradually vanishing quantity. The
traveller of an enterprising sonp
firm, hearing of the financial straits
to which this particular congregation was reduced, proposed that aa
advertisement extolling tho merits of
his special make of soap should be
put In some conspicuous place In
front of the gallery of tho church. In
return for this publicity, tho firm offered to give tho congregation 1*100
ne year for five yoars. Tlio proposal
was gravely debated by tho eldors anil
minister of the congregation, wlio
finally agreed to accept tho offer.
A German sportsman oncn snid to

should sny so. Tlio day after I left
homo ho broko his chain, and, although I had heen away for hoars,
he tracked me and found mo merely by

"I think you ought to take a bath,'
replied the Caledonian, turning calmly away.

Miss Jacques wns arraigned in the
Union County Court, ln Elizabeth, on
Tuesday, nnd, although sho declared
herself not guilty, she pleaded non
vult rather than submit to a trial ol
the case. Saturday wus set down as
the tline to sentence her, and every*
Uoily in and nr.rtind Edzabejth and
Westfield is wondering what her punishment will be.
When I called on Mr. Conant last
night he said: " I must say It got beyond endurance. .It was simply the
noise and annoyance of Miss Esther's
voice when there was trouble ln the
Jacques household. What the trouble
was I don't 'know. I am sorry the
matter has gone eo far. I didn't expect there would be any time made
about it, else I would not have acted.
The family ls an old ono here and a
fine one."
After I had rung the bell of the
Jacques house a dozen times a tall,
white-haired woman opened the door.
" Miss Esther ls not at home," she
said. " Yes, I am her mother, but I
will say nothing about this matter.
My daughter asked me to keep
Prohibition ln Portland Town.
The Portland Press states that the
clergymen of that city are' preparing
to enforce the prohibitory law. Our
contemporary is "glad to see it," but
thinks alter a few months' experience they will have gained knowledge
that will make thein more charitable
to the public authorities. It says a
good many of them now talk as if
the suppression of the liquor traffic
was the easiest thing imagiaable.
After a few months' experience tliey
will have discovered what the Hon.
Charles F, Libby���a gentleman to
whom they accord the credit, and
rightly, too, of doing his best to enforce the law���discovered, that they
have perhaps changed the form- somewhat of the liquor traffic, but not
suppressed It, nor indeed much diminished it. After five years of tbe
most vigorous prosecution of tlie liquor sellers of Portland town Mr.
Libby lound .what V Let him tell in
his own words:
"I found that I had driven out of
business one set of men, and another
set of men hud cume ia ; and so far
as I could Judge from my experience
tho last set ol men engaged in the
business was worse than the) first set
who were driven out. In uddition to
that I found thut when tho law was
very stringently enforced it created
a demand Ior club houses, nnd I
found that young men were establishing club rooms here in the city,
and not only did they become places
where drinking was carried on. but
got to be gambling places. I found
that, while I was driving the liquor
out of ordinary shops wnere it had
been sold I was driving it Into the
houses and kitchens where the children of the family who up to that time
never saw It, were accustomed then
to see tt dealt out In that surreptitious munner. The rigid enforcement
ot thc law introduced also the system of pocket peddling, something wo
never had in the city before. Not
11, ' thai, but 1 found that perjury
was becoming remarkably common ,n
tht courts."
f'thtequently Mr. Libby was Mayor
ot th- city, and It is generally auimt-
teil that lie enforced the law the :.s
vigorously and impartially as wis
possl * What did he find this cinie?

So far as the brutality of football
is concerned tliere can no longer lie
two sides to the question, writes Edward W. Bok in November Lndles'
Home Journal. The most uncompromising advocates of the game have
conceded the fact. If one game ol
college football differs from another
it Is purely aad simply in Its degree
of brutality. How disastrous and
fatal were these displays last year
wijl be brought home more directly
to people when by carefully computed
figures It ls shown that forty-six
deaths resulted last year from collegiate gaaies of tuotliall within a short
period of four months. No record has,
of course, been 'kept of broken ears,
lost visions and other disfigurements.
Ami a mutter of fact, thero is no sport
practised by any civilized nation which
can equal a record of forty*slx deaths
In four uionthB. . . . When we regard tho effects upon tho players we
meet a condition of things equally
serious. Leaviug the physical Injuries
entirely out of the question, the game
of football, as It Is played to-day, Is
an absoluto detriment tu the mental
development of those who participate
in It. I have, during tho past six
months, been nt some pains to carefully inquire into tho class standings
of the men who comprise college football teams, and the results were interesting. In two oases I found that
the majority of the football players
stood' ainong tho lowest in their
classes, while ln the other two Instances the. same tact was true of
one-half of the members of the tenons.
..... Furthermore, the so-called
" tame" which is bestowed upon these
college football players Is directly Injurious. Their lives are exploited, their
portraits nre printed, their every
movement ls chronicled until the subjects are made to feel a prominence
which Is at once preposterous and
absurd. Before a boy Is hardly out of
his fitting school he Ib spoiled with
a misplaced Importance ol himself and
a mistaken " fame," the evil effects
of which he carries with him through
his life. , . . "Nor Is the effect on
other students a wholesome one. It
requires a stronglytbalanced mind,
such ns Is rarely given to a growing
boy, for a young mnn to pursue a
craving for knowledge when all
around him he hears .nothing but
football talk, and sees the men next
to him become the talk of the country. It strikes for him, at the very
outset ot his career, a false note.
Effects of Disease aud Dronfeenneaaon Tbat
The most singular cases of memory-
loss are In connection with language.
It is quite common in our hospitals
to see a sick German unable to speak
a word ol the language he had
thoroughly mastered.
A very singular Instance of this Is
reported from New York. Many years
ago a Doctor Scandelll died in a hospital In that city. When first admitted ho conld only speak in English ; as the illness progressed he forgot that language and could now
only converse in French; but on the
day of his death another change occurred, and lie could speak nothing
but his own language���Italian,
Many varieties of this loss of memory of words exist. A clergyman,
some time ago*, lost all recollection ot
words; but he could still remember
the letters of which they were composed, and could express his ideas
freely by spelling the worda.
An officer suffered from, a slight attack of apoplexy, and, as a result,
forgot all bnt a very tew words.
When he tried to speak he merely
uttered nonsense; but If a book or
manuscript were handed to him he
read It with perfect propriety.
One of the moet extraordinary ot
all memory losses Is waen a person
forgets how to write with the right
hand, but still has the power to do
so with his left hand. In such a case,
after he has written with hla left
hand the desired sentence, he can
copy It with his right hand.
When the memory of words Ib gradually lost It invariably progresses
in one particular order.strango to say,
First the proper names go, then proper nouns, then adjectives, and this
stage ls followed by the (allure of the
power to recollect events. Very many
people Suffer from the first degree-
excessive smokers, for Instance, It ls
said, sometimes find It difficult to
recall proper names.
Drunkenness ls a well known cause,
and there ls the very curious case of
a man who mislaid a package while
drunk, forgot where he had put It
when sober, and had to get drunk
agnln to find It.���St. James'Gazette.

due to mild chronic inflammatory condition of ttie nose. This condition interferes with the due circulation of
lymph, and will thus aflect the nutrition of tbe cerebral lobes, setting up
pains, giddiness, want of mental concentration, and many minor nervous
symptoms, wrongly attributed to
cerebral disease. The eyes, the ears

I li/trd my head from the silken pillow
And strained mv ears half deaf with
To hear more plainly the words ofa sinprer,
Who sang  from' her  soul  this sweet
"Send showers' nf blessing,���
Shower** of*blft5*smg we need;
Mercy drop- found us are falling,
Iim for the showers we p'.etict.
Tlie voice was sn tender, so full of pathos,
Tbat I longed to see the singer's face.
And secretly wished that the walls between us,
Could have been   transformed in  thin-
ne��t lace,
Cutting  and basting, and hemming   and
Sewing, tewing, nhile the light grow-i
And when the bobbins needed filling
The seamstress sun4 this blessed hymn:
"Mend   showers   of blessing,���*
Showers nf blessing we need;
Mercy drops round us are f.tllint',
Bui for thc showers we plead."
The voice was so   tender, so true  nnd
That I quite forgot my own heart-pain,
And fousd myself softly and  slowly   re-

Tbe   precious   words over and over
Invisible hands seemed to lift, seemed to
Me above the dark clouds that threatened my shy,
And a deluge of peace-God's own precious gold,*���
Swept over iny soul *iih lhat melody.
With  whirr and rattle, and rattle and
The noisy machine plays the interlude;
Tbe voice bre-iks, tlie voice   titmblts, I

And whisper, "Have patience, our God
