MASQUERADE    BALL.
The pnze masquerade ball passed off
successfully, Cen.iin'v tin.incull) it did
well. The number of masqueradtrs was
a-, great as comfort would allow, while
ilic * isimrs were largely in excess nf the
s ating capacity. The music, by
Professor l-.epernnd Mt* D. June-*, wa*
ol course excellent. Mr. Wilks as man-
a.erw.t.*,, without hcii-K obtrusive, at
every point where and when needed, suffered nothing *n Injti *<*u* rendered things
smooth and enjoyable.
There were a number of quite notice*
able rnsflimc , some, as until on such
occasion- gintc-qne from their medly
charailerai.d the waul ofhnrmm**. The
hom*- m .dt* ".iff-irs" were the best. The
hum u. form divine, in its breadth, height
and shortness alway*; looks nnm-tng in
inas-.jiier.iclmg outfit. Here was tlie verv
short, tlie very tall, btit striiuge to sa>,
theie was wanting the very stout- the
most laughter provoking of all forms.
In .-rdinarv attire wc try to remedy our
cuppo,ed defects but masquers usually
exagerate their physical pcculiaritcs. It
was so here. There was nut exhibited
much of ihe dramatic Instinct of manner
which adds so much to an appropriately
gull-in up costume. There was variety
���from the red devil 10��� an angel.
Whether either was nuc to the original
charm ter we confess to a want of acquaint
nnce sufficient to enablu us to determine.
Belore unmiiskin-: the committee cor-
si ting of VV. J. Jenkins l-ton McDonald,
J iim llrvden, Ml-*. M. Kim, and Mrs.
uichard Short awarded the prizes as follows:

Dave EnniS, 2nd prize, a fancy lamp bj
Mel'hee & Moure.    I lis m-ikc up   was
that ofa painter and attracted much
attention.
Among those who did not receive prizes but favorable mention were tbe two
flower girls, the girls in blue, a school
girl with ber boiiks, who only required a
skip pipe to have merited a prize. As
il was many would have voted her one,
and some of ihe gentlemen in military
dress, onc of whom it is said would have
been .1 prize taker but for the faci lha: he
unmasked ton quickly, that is, before tbe
prizes weie awarded.
The supper was provided bv Mrs Pi
Let at the Cumberland hotel, and although bui 50 (.cuts was charged, it was
fully up lo thejiigh standard alwajs of
tered there.

A NOTABLE PAIR.
Every one has bis h >bhy we suppose.
The hobby of K. P. Edwards is a tine
breed ol fowls. J s. now he affects Partridge Cochins. His hennery is at the
foot of Femwond Hi ights. Being in
that neigh bun rhood we took a look at
them. A notable looking pair soon came
oui of their snuggery into the liltle open
y.ird. No wonder lhey looked vain.
I bey were stately beauties. They wrre
of the bluest of blue blood; no plebian
taint about them. The male member
linked every inch a king, and needed no
trinkets to show hit station; his mate
walked a queen. Even chickens are
born hitn higher or lowlier conditions.
Eggs Of this royal strain ran be obtained
of Mr. Edwards.

DRAMATIC COMPANY
FROM NANAIMO.
There were two entertainments given
last week at Piket's hall by a Nanaimo
amateur troupe. ' luy uere fair amateurs, but poorly patronizd, The weather
was bad, and the young ladies and t-cnilc
met. who compose the troupe- very estimable people were sadly handle ipped
by a Mr. McNtcoll, who acted as|asortflf
advance agert. He brought up uithhim
a few handbills printed id Nanaimo for
the occasion, put up a few here and there,
rented a hail, and rested on liis valorous
oars. Having borrowed a copy of the
ni.ws he discovered an item to the effect
tbat nut-tide amateurs wen not a drawing card In Union. This was an inno-
<rnt paragraph stating a fact which
even hts brain can probably now understand Presenting this, dnlv marked, to
the editor he demanded .h a bull dozing
manner wh-.t thai meant. He was polite
ly informed that it was considered good
Eqglith and spoke for itself. Then he
stated lhat he had intended to leave com
plimrntary tickets at lhe Niws office but
that now he should withhold ihem. This
ofl-Hirse was intended as ,1 paralyser.
We, however, managed rtith some difficulty to make him understate that we
would endeavor 10 bear up under the af-
flictlon as best we could, ami perhaps
might he able to survhti, Il Mr. McN'c
oil lias any friends they should look afier
him. His condition seems to require
treatment.
FINE VEIN OF COAL.
The new shaft is down about 300 feel.
Lately a vein of fine coal 5 lee; thick was
passed through. Some specimens of it
were sent below, we under "land. It is
said to be cleaner than tlie other coal
mined here which is of a confessedly high
Duality.   Thc shaft will h*** sunk   to   the
cpth originally intended, and the 5 foot
vein worked in the sweel bye and bye.
BENNIE-WHYTE.
On Wednesday last Miss Jessie Whyte
was united in marriage to Mr. John Ben*
[lie at the residence of the bride's parents
in Union. Thc ceremony took plaee at
9 p. m., the Kev. Jno. Robson officiating.
There was a large gathering of relatives
.\nd friends who warmly congratulated
ihe happy couple. Immediately after
ihc ceremony the entire company sat
down to a sumptuous repast.
The presents were numerous and both
useful and ornamental. Mr. and Mrs.
Bennic have gone to housekeeping in
iheir new house in Cumberland. Mrs.
Hcnnie is the third daughter which has
'lecn caoturcd from thc lioii-sehould of
Mr. and Mrs. James Whyte within thc
last six months.

.here, expressing inappropriate language
congrmulaiions and good wishes, and
presenting a handsome purse nf $50 as a
token of their respect and friendship.
Mr. lkr.nie was somewhat laken aback,
but recovering himself, expressed their
thanks for ihc generous fift and thc kind
word- which accompanied the presentation, and created a hearty laugh by remarking thai he hoped to be able at some
future itine to assist in cxiending a like
courtesy to some uf his gentleman
friends noon a similar occasion.

Ii is said that a company of Lips
marched into the Monte Carlo of China

The policeman has secured of Gram

We had the pleasure of mec.ng Mr
Simon Leiser last week. He had just re-
turned from his trip east and was, 11

$100,000 worth of general merchandi**r

UNDER A CLOUD,
A THRILLING TALE OF HUMAN LIFE.
CHAPTER   XXXVII, |
BUS TO KAItTH.
"What the dickens doea tt all mean!"
thought Guest wondering'yt ua he followed
into Stratton'a chambers, with a strange
feeling of expectancy exciting him. Some-
hiii-; waa going to happen, he felt aure,
and that something would be connected
with liia friend. And now he began to
regret bitterly having urged on the quest,
It hid hail the effect of rousing Stratton
for the moment, but he looked horrible
now, and Gueat aaked himaelf again, what
did it mean?
The Bergeant looked sharply round Stratton's room, and noted where the chamber
lay; but hia attention waa at once riveted
upon the fireplace with its two doora, and
be walked to the one on the right, seized
the handle, and tnund it faat.
"Yes," he suid, "been open once,
(doicd, I ahould aay, for many years."
"Want it "iii-miil, pardner ?" said hia
companion.
"Not that one,"aaid the sergeant meaning-
lytand he went to the door on the luft,Stratton watching hitn fixedly the while, and
(iueat, in turn, watching hia friend, with a
sense of aome great trouble looming over
nim, as he wondered what waa about to
happen.
"Hah 1 yea," aaid tho sergeant, who began to ahow no little excitement now; "fellow door sealed up, too."
Guest atarted nnd glanced quickly at his
friend, who remained drawn up, silent and
stern, as a man would look who waa sub*
mitting to a scrutiny to which he haa ob
jected.
The sergeant shook the door, but it was
perfectly faat, and tho handle immovable
" Some   time aince   there   waa  a way
through here," he Baid confidently ; and,
as ho spoke, Gueat again gazed at Strat*
' ton, and thought of how ahort a time it
waa aince he had been in the habit of going
* to that closet to fetch  out Boda   water,
spirits, and cigars.
What did it mean? What could it mean,
ftnd why did not Strattton epeak out and
���ay : " The cloaet belongs to thia Bide of
the suite."
But no ; he waa ailent and rigid, while
the aenae of a coming calamity loomed
broader to mingle with a cloud of regrets.
Ue waa tryin; to think out somo means
of retiring from the scrutiny, aa tho sergeant turned to hia companion and Baid a few
worda in a low tone���worda which Gueat
felt   certain meant   ordera   to forco open
the cloaet door, which, for some reason,
Stratton   had fastened up when the Bergeant spoke out:
"Now, gentlemen, please, wo'll go back
��� he other chambers.
Guest drew a deep breath, full of relief,
for the tension waB, for the moment, at an
end.
He followed with Stratton, whose eyea
now met hia ; and there waa auch a look of
helpleasneaa and despair in the gaze that
Guest caught his friend'a arm,
" What iB it, old fellow?" he whiapered
but thero was no reply, and, after closing
the door, they followed into Brettison's
room,  where the aergeant stood ready for
them with his companion.
Aa they enterod, the man closed the doer
���ndSlid sharply :
" You're right, gentlemen ; there haa
been foul play."
A cold Bweat burat out over Quest's
brow, and hia hair began to cling to his
temple?. He once more glanced at Strat*
ton, but he did not move a muscle ; merely j
stood listening, aa if surprised at the man'a
Assertion.
11 There have alwaya been two cupboards
here, made out of theae two old pasaagea,
���nd thia ouo haa been lately fastened up."
'��� No, no," said Stratton, in a low, deep
tone.
������ What, Bir ! Look here," cried the man,
ftnd he shook one of the great panels low
down in the door, und tho other higher.
" What do you say to that ? Both those
have been out quite lately."
Stratton bent forward, looking startled,
rmd then stepped close up to the door, to
s-ie for himaelf if the man was correct.
The lower panel waa certainly loose, and
oould be shaken about a quarter ot en inch
eaoh way, but that aeemed to be ull ; and
looking relieved he drew back.
" Nonaenau !" he saitl.    " Absurd !"
Guest  looked at him sharply, for  the
Voice seemed to be that ofa ntraugor.
������ Not very absurd, sir," replied the
sergeant. " This door was made two or
three hundred years ago, I should aay, and
the old oak ia shrunken und worm-eaten. I
eould eaaily shove that panel out, but
there's no need. Here, .Tern, try and open
the lock the regular way,"
Stratton'a lipa parted, but he said no
word; and, as ihc second man strode up to
ths door with his tools, the sergeant went
on:
" X thought it was ,\ mare's nest, ��ir, and
even now 1 don't like tospeak too fast ; but
it looks to me as it the poor gentleman had
been rohl>cd und murdered, and whoever
did it has hidden the body in here."
A curioua cry escaped from Stratton's
lipa, and ho gazed fiercely at the officer.
" That's it, air," said lho man. " It's a
startler for you, I know, living so close,
bub I'm afrahl it's true. Well, Jem, what
do you make of .t t"
Gueat looked us if he had rocelved a
mental blow, an Idea after Idea flatbed
through his mind. Stratton'a manner
suggested it���hia acta of lata, thu disappearance of Brettison on tho wedding day,
the largo sum of money on the table, the
mad horror and despair of the man ever
since���-itimiBt he so ; and ho felt that here
waa the real key to all hia friend's atrango
behavior.
He wiped tho cold moiature Irom hia
brow, and stared at Stratton, but hia friond
waa atanding rigid and dc-tcrmined, watching the actions of tho two men, and Guoal
had hard work to supproaa a (-roan, aa he
felt that his companion would owo to him
the discovery aud the punishment that
would follow.
Just then Stratton turned and saw that
he was being watched - but, as if all attempts at concealment weru hopeless, he
smiled faintly ut his friond and than turned
ftway.
The workman had not mado  any reply,
and tne aergeant spoke again us a largo
picklock waa i brunt into tho keyhole again
and again,
������ Rusted up?"
"Ay, and eaten away ; thore hasn't been
a key used in that lock in our time,pardner.
But stop a minute; mure ways oi killing
a cab than hanging of her. Lot's have a
look."
He began to examine the edge of tho
door, and thon turned sharply round.
*' Look here," ha naid ; anil thon taking
bold of the antique door knob, he lifted it
and the whole of iho front bar of rail came
away���a piece of narrow wood aix feet
long.
" Split away from the tenons," he Baid j
and the aergnant uttered an ejaculotion.Tull
of eager satist action,
"There, gentleman," he aaid, pointing.
*��� One���two���three���four    bright   new
screws.    What do you s*y now V
There they were plain enough, ctoae to
the door frame, aud (iueat uttered a low
sigh as he supported himaelf by the back of
ft chair.
Out with 'em, .lorn."cried the sergeant'
exeitedly, and, a Urge screw-driver being
produced from the tool bag, the screws
were attacked, and turned eaaily, the man
rapidly withdrawing them uud laying them
one by one ou tlie mantel shelf.
" They haven't been in very long," ho
muttered, raising one to his nose, " Been
rubbed iu paratliu candle, I should say."
He began turning another, while the
sergeant gave Quest the lantern to hold
while he went and picked up ihe piece of
candle they hud found at first.
" Not all teeth inark-i, gentlemen," he
said ; " the candle wa? used to ease those
screws." ���
There was a pause then, for the man waB
at work an thc Utit screw, uud aa he turned,
Uucat arrived at the course hu should pur
sue. Stratton was Ignoring tbe fact that
the closet belonged to his room ; ha muat
for hia own sake, do the same. He could
not give evidence ftgalnst his friend ; f
there it wan plain enough now, and if
Stratton had been guilty ol BrettUon'i
death, he was being bitterly punished for
but I his crime.
The last screw fell nn (be lbm, and wus
picked up and placed with the others. Then
the man stood with hla scrcw*driver in hia
hand.
Prize it open '." he aaid. Tho aergeant
nodjed, and un forcing tho edge of the
screw-driver iu t he crack between tbo inner
half of the bar and the jamb, it acted as a
lever, and thu dour *��� iv* with a faint creak
but aa soon aa it was a couple of inches
open the man drew buck.
" Your job now," he said.
The aergeant stepped forward; Stratton
stood firm, as if carved in stone,and (iueat
closed his eyes, feeling sick, and aa if the
room was turning round, till a sharp ejaculation mado him open bis eyes again to see
that the sergeant had entered with bia lantern, and wub making it play over the panels of tho inner side of the farther door.
"'J hat's the obi door leading into the
place. I suppose, sir ?" ho mud.
" i'es,"
Guest started again, the voice sounded
so strange, but he wus gaining courage, for
there was tbe familiar dark bathroom,
viewed from the other end, with the cigar
box on the shelf olose to the door in company with the spirit aland. Beneath tha
shelf there were three large tour-gallon tins,
which were unfamiliar, and suggested petroleum or crystal oil; there was a mackintosh
hung on a peg, looking very suggestive ; an
alpenatook in a corner, with a salmon and
trout rod. Guest saw all this at a glance,
and his spirits rose, for there was no ghastly
scene upon which to gaze.
Then his spirits sank to zero again, for
there was the oblong of the inclosed bath
occupying the left of the long,narrow place,
and only just leaving room for anyone to
pass.
He shuddered, and at that moment the
Bergeant took bold of the edge of the
mahogany lid to raise it, but without
snocesa.
" Fast," muttered the latter; and he held
thu light to tho glistening French-polished
mahogany cover, lookinj- from place to plane.
" Here you are, Jem," he said, in a low
tone; " four more screws, and only just pub
The other man uttered a low growl, and
entered with hiB screw-driver; moistened
hia handa and the tool creaked on thn top
of a screw, and then entered the cross slit
with a loud simp. The noxt miuute the
first screw was being withdrawn.
" Pretty badly put in," aaid the man.
" Didn't have a carpenter here."
He worked away, making tho old place
vibrate a little with his elForts, and to Guesb
the whole busiucss was horribly suggestive
of taking olf the lid from a coffin ; but he
was firmer now, as he stood behind Strat*
ton, who drew a deep breath, now and then
like a heavy sigh, but neither stirred from
his position by tbe iloor they had entered,
nor spoke.
All at once there wus a sharp rap on the
lid of tho bulb, which acted like a sounding*
board, and the mun ut work started back
in alarm.
" All right, Jem," said tho sergeant *
" you jarred il down from tho shelf/
As ho * [tol-.* he snatched up what he evidently looketl upon us evidence ; for it was
a large gimlet, evidently quito new, and its
loug spiral glistened in the light of the
lantern.
" Thought Homebody throwed it," growl
ed the man, as he resumed his tusk of
withdrawing tha screws till the lust was
out, and placed closo to lho bath, on the
floor.
" Sure that's all ?" saitl tho sergeant.
The man run his fingers along tho edge of
the bath lid, uttered a grunt, and drew
back towards the door by which he had
entered.
" Lift up tho 1H, man���lift up the lid,"
Baid thcscTgcaut, directing the lantern ao
that the grain of tho newdooking wood
glistened and seemed full of golden and
ruddy brown depths nf shallow, among
which tho light seemed to play,
" Do you hear ?" he said. " Lift up bhe
lid."
The man made no answer, but ran his
hand nver hismoist forehead,and still back
ed towards thc door, where Stratton and
Guest were standing. Then, us they drow
aside to lot hint pass:
" Precious hot in there," ho growled.
" Look here,  Join," said tha sargeant
" don't leave a fellow in tho  lurch.    Come
on."
Thus adjured the man turned back and
held out his hand.
"lb ain't my work," he said in a bourse
whisper; "I've dono my bit. Hub I'll hold
the light for you, If you liko."
The sergeant passed   the lantern   to his
companion, who took it, uud so reversed Its
poaition, the lays from lhe buH'a-eye being
directed toward the sergeant, and, consequently, Stratton and Guest were ill tho
shadow, out ol which tho latter peered
forward with bis heart beating violently,
and as ho leaned forward he touched Stratton'a arm.
Ho shuddered and shrunk buck, being
conscious that Strutton grusped therouson,
for a low sigb escaped mm] but ho did not
stir, and, in Spite of his feeling of ropulsion,
Guest felt compelled lo press forward
again to witness the horror about to bu
unveiled.
*' Turn the light mom down," whispered
the sergeant; uud, in spile of the low tone
In which they were uttered, tha words
Bounded loudly in Guest's ears.
"Nowfor it," muttered tho ollicer ; and
as if forcing himself to act, ho flung up
tho bath lid so thut it, struck against thc
panelled sjdo of lhe place with a sharp
rap, and set free a quantity of loose plaster
and brickwork to fall behind the wainsoot
with a peculiar, rustling sound that sent a
shudder through the lookers on.
CHAPTER XXXVIII.
THK BLIND  I.HAD.
Aa that horrible, rmitling sound behind
tho wainsoot was heard, the two hardened
men in the old passage shrunk awuy tn tlooi
end end, while a coldnw*mt bedewed Quest's
face, and his breath felt labored. Then
there wus a reaction. Old memories (Unit-
el through his brain, ami lie seized Strut-
ton's arm.
"Old friends," he mntterrd "I enn't
forsake him  now,"
The arm ho gripped felt rigid anil cold,
but Strutton made no movement, no sign,
and that moment the- saw ihe Bergeunt

like receptacle; for thanks to tho manufacturers, our baths are made us BUggeative

Thore was utter silence then for a mo*
ment.    Then iho sergeant uttered   a  low
Whistle and exclaimed:
f  "Well, lam blessed!"
"Aint he there?" said the workman,
from the door.
"Come and look, Jem."
Jem went in slowly, looked down in the
bath, which was lit up by the rays from
the lantern, and then uttered a low,
chuckling sound, while Guest tried to
make out the meaning of the atrange
expression, dimly seen, on hia friend'a
face.
For Stratton'a eyea showed white circles
about the irises, as he uow leaned forward
to gaze iuto the bath.
Guest waa tho last to look into the
white ouameled vessel, one third full of
what seemed to be water, but from the
peculiar odor which rose from the aurface,
evidently was not.
Stratton was silent ; and in the Btrange
exultation he fait un seeing that all the
horrora he hud imagined were vain and
empty, GueBt shouted *.
"Bah! What coc't-and-bull stories you
policemen hatch I"
The sergeant, who had been regularly
takeu aback, recovered himeelf at this,
"Come, Bir," he cried; "I like that.
You como to us aud aay your friend'a missing, and you think that he ia lying dead
in his chambers."
" Well," aaid Gueat, with a forced laugh,
us ne glanced uneuaily at Stratton; "it
did look suspicious, and you worked it all
up so theatrically that 1 waa a little impressed."
"Theatrical ! Improaaetl, air 1 Why, it
was all as real to me ; and 1 say again your
friend ought to bo lying there.    What do
you aay, Jem?"
" I'ert'uly."
" Hut he ia not,"  Baid Guesb sharply ;
and ib has all heen a false alarm, you see,
and I'm vary, very glad."
"That's spernts, aure enough, sir," aaid
the man, dipping hia finger in bhe bath
a^uiii. " Open that there lantern, pard-
ner."
The aergeant obeyed, and Ida companion
thrust io hia finger, for it to be enveloped
directly with a bluish flame.
" Mind what you're doing," aaid the
aergeant hastily, "or we shall have the
whole place a-tire."
" All right, pardnor. Sperrita it is, and,
I should aay, come in them cans."
He gave one ol thc great tins a tap with
hia toe, and it Bent forth a dull, metallic
sound.
"Very likely," said Guest. "Our friend
is a naturalist, and uses spirits to preserve
things in."
"Look ye here," said the workman oracularly, and he worked one hand about as
he apoke. "I don't purfeas to know no
more than what's my trade, which ia locks
aod odd jobs o' thab sort. My pardner
here'll tell you, genu, that I'll face anything from a tup'ny padlock up to a strong
room or a patent safe; but I've got a thought
here as may be a bright, un, or only a nit
of a man'a nat'ral tog, Vou want to find
this gent don't you?"
"Yes," aaid Guest; and the tone of that
'yes" suggested plainly enough, "no,"
"What have you got in that wooden head
ol yours now, Jem?" growled the sergeant.
Wait a minute, my lad, and you'll
hear."
There's no occasion for us to stop here,"
Baid Guest hurriedly.
'On'y a minute, air, and then I'll screw
down tho lid. What I wanted to aay,
gents, is; haven't we found the party after
all ?"
What!" cried Guest. ** Where?"
Here, air, 1 don't understand sperrits

mayn't the pent be in there, after all, in
slooshun���melted away in the sperrits, like
a lump o'sugar in a man'a tea?
Household.
A Swinging Writing Table.
The illustration shows a convenient attachment for thoae who use a chair aome*
timea for writing and sometimes for reading
oi* other purposes. The construction iB
very plainly shown in the drawing.    It
ouly remains to be aaid that tho whole affair
may be of home manufacture, except the
iron work, which ought tobe within the
powers of even an ordinary blacksmith.
Tha little rail on top ia of brass, pus-dug
through brass supports which can be had
at hardware stores.
Planning Work.
Women, to whom the management ol the
household and their own timea and seasons
of work are committed, are nob forced into
systematic, punctual habits aa early or as
certainly. Tho housekeeper whose breakfast is late falls back on the charity
those who are ready to exouae her. The
boy who ia late to the bank or workshop
cannot plead in excuse bhab breakfaBt waa
late. He knowa no excuse will be received
and plana to take a hastily '-picked up'
meal rather than riak the displeasure of
hia employer and poaaible fine. The man
who ia in business for himself knowa that
every moment's delay after hia office houra
means a loss of custom and business prestige. The fault has been sometimes fouud
that "woman's work was never done,"
leaving the inference that it could not be
done. This is not true of the work of the
average woman.
A vast number of household workcra,
bath mistresses and maids, " work best
when the sun ia in the weat," A few wo-
men and a tew men are bo overworked that
they cannot lie down to reat ab night without feeling the preaaure of the cares yet
undone because there waa no time to accom-
pliah all. The vast majority of women who
drudge late into the night do so because
they have ignored the lawB of punctuality,
or, in short, in colloquial phrase, their
work is " ahead of them."

"No, he mayn't," said the sergeant,
closing the lid with a bang. " Don't you
take no notice of him, gentlemen; he's
handled screws till he's a reg'lar screw
himaelf."
Butwhab I say is���"
Hold your row, and don't make a fool
of yourself, mate.    Geb your work done,
and then go home and try experiments with
a pinto' paraffin and a rat."
The man utterd a growl, and attacked
the bath lid angrily, screwing it down aa
thc light waa held for him, and bhen going
with the others into thesittingroom, where
he aoon restore! the old door to its former
state, there being no sign, when he had
finished, of ita having been touched.
Then, after a glance round, with Bret-
bison's portrait atill seeming to watch them
intently, thu outer door was cloaed, and
the little party returned to Stratton's
chambers, whero certain coins were paaBed
from hand to hand, evidently to the great
satisfaction of tha two men, for Jem began
to chuckle and shake his head.
"Well" said the sergeant; "what now?"
"I waa thinking, pardner, about baths."
"Yes, eir, I'm going; bub there's your
gents as goea and breaks the he in the
Serpentine, and them as goes bo be cooked
in a hoven, and ahambooed ; and you pull
your strings and haa ib in showers, and
your hob waters and cold waters; bub this
genb aeeins bo have liked hia stronger than
anyone I ever knowed afore. I say pardner
that's having your lotion, and no shum,"
" Pooh 1" said the sergeant.
" Look here," Baid Guest quickly, and
ho slipped anobher sovereign into the Ber*
gcunt's hand, " thia has all been a foolish
mistake.   I was too hasty."
"Only did your duty, sir," replied the
man. " It was quite right, and I'm glad,
for all concerned, that it waa a mistake."
" You understand, then ; we don't want
ib bo bo talked about in the inn, or���or���
anywhere, in fact,"
"Don't you be afraid about that, Bir,"
aaid the man quietly. " I don't wonder
at you. It did look suspicious, but that's
all right, Bir. Good night, gentlemen
both.
Aud he closed both doors ; and then,
wibh a peculiar sensation of shrinking,
turned to faoe Stratton whero he stood by
the fireplace.
(to uk CONTINUED,)
Paper Hosiery.
Paper gloves and hosiery are named aa
among tlie very latest novelties. Stockings
which Bell at threo cents ft pair are proposed.
In fact the rxporimont of making paper
stockings has been going on tor several
months, and the party engaged therein
believes that pa [ier mittuns or gloves would
possess advantages in their season. The
goods arc light and airy and vury comfortable in summer. When finished aud dyed
their appearance is similar tu ordinary
fabric goods. The knitting ia from paper
varus. Tho paper yams are made pretty
muoh after the plan of making common
paper twines, except that the former are
put through certain Bpecial processes. The
principle is that of making a aort of a nap
on the yarns. Thia is done automatically.
Ordinary paper twine or yarn is too smooth,
bub a gaod giggmg up gives bhe yarn a nap,
and tli s imparts softness. After the knit-
ting I .-' heen done the goods are placed in
i iizh .' bath mud'* from potato starch and
���.alio,,, ffhii Ii i ipar's solidity and durability to tho texture. With paper passenger
car wheels, paper water paila, why not
paper socks and stockings ?
Pro se That Came Too Late.
A sermon In itself waB preached lately
in a story told by a well-t-uown Bishop. It
seems that a number i f clergymen were
present to bear test! mod J .���*** the life and
influence of a departed colleague. One
after another rose iu their places to tell what
lhey owed to his genius, his high spirit, unswerving loyalty to duly, splendid courage,
rare scholarship, >nd philosophic inflight,
Tho testimony waa -ione. At the door, all
the time,there stood a slender woman, who
had been during hiB life nearest to him of
whom they spoke. " I never ahall
forget her face���bhe passion of ib and the
pathos of it���nor the power, tender but
reproachful, with which she Bpoke when at
length we were still. ' Oh, If you\loyed
Kdward so, why .didn't you tell him*f It
| while he lived!" /
Embroidered Handkerchiefs.
It is now the correob thing to put the
fine needle work which used bo be expended
upon dollies, centre pieces, and other
table a:cesBories, upon dainty pocket
bandk* ichiefs. Tlie finest square of hem
Btitche.l lawn ia strewn with tiny rosebuds
or violets or forgot-me-note, done in the
natural colors, and so exquisitely finished
that there is no right or wrong side to the
handkerchief. Of course, if a girl'a name
is Rose, she will carry none but rose em*
hroidered handkerchiefs, if her name is
Violet, the shy little purple blossom will
peep out of her pocket or from under
her belt, if ahe doean't happen to have a
flower name, she chooses a bbssom whose
name begins with tbe initial letter of her
own, aa pansy or pink for Pauline, forget-
me-not for Frances, and migonetto for
Mary.
Washing Silk Waists-
Wash ailk waists do not always wash
well because of ignorance of tho proper
way of laundering them. Adda teaspoonful
of borax to some lukewarm water an-j
enough nice white soap to make a weak
auda. Rub through ihe handa carefully ;
instead of wringing draw tho ailk through
the tightly clasped hand. If all the dirt
has not been taken out, wash again; then
rinae in several waters to which havu been
added a pinch of borax or ah,. If dozen drops
of ammonia, Uo not let ttie silk become
quite day before ironing ; then use a
moderately hob iron, as a very hob one will
scorch the silk.
About Buying Needles.
It la a habib of almoab all seamstresses
bo buy needles by the assorted package*
"from 5 to 10" being the accepted ordor,
The consequence is that most work baskets
are half full of opened and partially used
cases wherein bhe "10," which are finer
than needed for ordinary sowing, are left
alone. A more sensible plan would seem
to be to buy generally 7s, 8s and perhaps
!(.- as they are wanted. The coarsest and
the finest needles are very rarely required.
A Holder for Spent Matches.
A spent match holder may be made by
lining eighb inches square of Gray Java
canvass with white writing paper. Fold
and sew the edges together. This makea
a Httlo boat. Edgo the top with blue
quilled ribbon,and hang by narrow ribbons.
A tinsmith will make for a fow ceuts a tin
lining if desired.
Some Hints.
Prick potatoes before baking.
Dry spongecake is good toasted.
Try the heat of the oven with a piece ol
paper.
Ralso the flour barrel a few inches from
tho floor.
Into a rat hole stuff a rag saturated with
cayenne pepper solution.
To clean nickel on stoves use soda web
with ammonia. Apply with an old tooth
brush and rub wilh a woolen oloth.
The rose oollar la the newest thing in
fancy neck adornments. It is made of
artificial pink rosea sewed closely on a
pink silk cape about eight inches deep, A
ruche of pink crepe stands up around the
neck and falls in stole ends to the waist
in front.
LiBterine is something that ought to find
a place on the toilet table of every thoroughly clean woman. A teaspoonful of it
in the water with which you brush your
teeth will cleanse the mouth, teeth and
throat, correct aoidity and render the
breath sweet and agreeable.
Horrid mud spatters will appear, no
matter how high one holds one's skirts.
To let the mud dry and then brush it off
is the best way to do with woolen dresses,
but something more is necessary for ailk.
Mud atatna Bilk, and the only way to remove tho spots ia to brush tho goods j
thoroughly and sponge with alcohol.
Suet, Indian or any fruit pudding may
be kept for a long time and whon wanted
lor use placed in a steamer over a kettle
of boiling water for a short time, aud will
be even better than when freshly made,
Do not let it stand in the steamer to become
water soaked. If a clean dish towel be
folded and placed over the top of the
steamer before putting on the cover, It
will prevont the moisture dropping down
on the food.   And, by the way, there is no
better way of reheating food of any kind,
thao steaming, if properly done. If a jar
of beans is baited once a week, it will be
found a good thing to hive on hand.
Warming over only improves them, and if
one wishes a saUd, chop some of the beans
with a raw onion or two, dresa with vinegar, melted butter, pepper and salt if necessary. Slices of 'he pork which was baked
with tbe heauB may he served with the
salad.
NICOTINE BLINDNESS.
A Diaeaae Tliat Prevail-. Amuuji Tobacco
Smoker--,
*��� Did you ever hear of tobacco blindness ?" eaid a doctor. " It is something
we meet with quite freely, yet not so
much aB one would suppose, when the
great consumption of tobacco is considered.
Yet there are many who are on the threshold of tobacco blindness who have, or
may not have, an experience with tbe
diaeaae.
" For, in tobacco poisoning, like that
produced by other drugs, the system can
resist the influence of tho invader up to
a certain point, when thu smallest further
dose of tho poison will produce the aame
ay in jit nun- aa the taking of a larger dose
wonld. Thus, in the case of many people,
the mere smoking of ��� pipe or two more
a day would produce in them all bhe
advauced symptoms of tobacco poisoning.
So it ia that doctors make it imperative in
auch cases that the smoking habit muat be
dropped entirety. To amoke moderately
will not do. You canuot afford to take
tho chances of giving the ayatem thab
libble bib moro of nicotine which would
cause bhe case to be serious.
" Tobacco blindness can, fortunately, be
cured, With the smoking habit abolished,
plenty of outdoor exercise, a good nerve
tonic, which would assist in the purification of the blood as well aa toning up the
general system, and abatentation from
alcoholic beverages, there iano reason why
tobacco blindness cannot be cured. Alcohol, drunk in any of ita forms, is liable to
produce tobacco blindness in a fairly heavy
smoker.
" Hub the strangest part of it all is that
a person does not have to smoke tobacco to
become atllicted with tobacco blindness.
In fact, one of the most obstinate cases I
ever had waa that of a waiter in a city
cafe. He waa a nonamoker and a total
abstainer, yet he came to me with tobacco
blindness fully developed, caused by being
compelled to work all day in the atmosphere of tobacco smoke, breathing the
?oiaoned air polluted by 30 or 40 smokers,
t ia a wonder why more of the disease
does oot develop when this is considered.

Cold In the Head and How to Cure
It.
One of tho most unpleasant and dangerous maladies that alllicts Canadians at thia
season is cold in the head. Unpleasant,
because of the dull, heavy headache, inflamed nostrils and other disagreeable
symptoms accompanying it; and dangerous,
because if neglected, it develops into catarrh, with ita disagreeable hawking and
spitting, foul breath, frequent loss
of tasto and smell, and in many cases
ultimately developing into consumption.
Nasal Halm is the only remedy yet discovered that will instantly relieve cold in
the hoad and cure in a few applications,
while its faithful uae will effectually eradicate the worst case of catarrh, (-'apt. D.
H. Lyon, president et the C. P. R. Car

Nasal Halm for a prolonged case of cold in
the head. Two applications affected a
cure in twenty-four hours. 1 would not

THE BARBER'S STORY.
Long Hours and Constant Standing
Brought on Kidney Trouble.
Forced to ami Work and Feared Thnt Me

He art Last Found a Core.
From the Stratford Beacon.
Among the residents of Stratford there
is probably   none   better known   or moro
highly respected than Mr, James E..Smith,
the Ontario street tooaorial artist. Mr. Smith
is also well known in Torouto.in which city
he worked for aeveral yeara in  a  Yonge
street barbershop.   To a reporter of tl-e
Beacon,who jb acustomer of hia,the affable
barber recently told of hia recovery trom a
late very severe illness.    He had, he aaid,
for aome yeara been attlioted with a weak
back, so much so that ut timea if he atoop.
ed he could not regain an upright position
unassisted, and as for liftiug anything that
was out of the question.    "For yeara," to
use Mr,  Smith's own words, "1 could uot
carry a scuttle-full of coal." Ha hud, bo the
physicians whom   he consulted told him,
disease of the kidneys, but they failed to
cure him.    Ho grew weak at length and
rapidly  lost  flesh.   Quito   frequently he
would be obliged to give up work   for a
week and take bo hia bed. He loat his appetite, waa pale at,d ao unnerved that he could
not possibly hope to continue longer at hia
trade. -'Customers of tbe barber shop," he
remarked, "do not care to ba shaved by
a man whose  hand trembles."   He  hail
boen in bed some time undergoing treatment when one morning his wife said to
him, " Jim, I've got a new medicine I want
you to try."   It waa Dr.  Williams' Pink
Pills ahe had.   Ho objected to more medicine as invalids will do, but at length as
sensible men usually are, he waa guided by
hia  wife.   " But mind you" he said, " I
had no faith in the pills; I only took them
to please my wife.     It was fortunate hs
did so, for ho was soon back at work and
after taking several boxea of the medicine
was stronger than he had been for several
years.   Within two months after beginning
to take Pink Pills he felt line a new man
and   had gained over twenty pounds  in
weight.   There ia certainly no  healthier
looking man in the city to-day thnn Mr.
Smith.   Since his restoration to health by I
Dr.   Williams- Pink Pills he has recom-
mended   the   remedy   to   many   of   hia
friends   and   has yet    to    hear    of   a
case where the remedy faithfully tried was
found wanting.   In cases like that of Mr.
Smith, Pink Pills   furnish  a speedy and
effective cure, as   indeed  they   do in all
oases dependent upon   a poor or watery
oondition ot the blood or impaired nervous

Convenient Feed Rack for   Sheep.
The usual method of leading sheep has a
number of ditad vantages. When fed from
the floor adjacent to their pen, the lambs
are quite sure to be found Walking all over
the hay and grain, and making themselves
generally at home in tho uttermost parts
of the barn. The sheep, moreover, wear
oil' tlm wool from their necks and disfigure
themselves wheu feeding through openings
in the side of their pen. Where the fodder
is thrown down from the lloor above the
pen an arrangement such as ii shown in the
II.VNiilM!   I'KKI)  HACK.
illustration may bo lound serviceable. It
is a hanging rack with slats all around it,
and made narrow at the bottom so that the
flock can reach evon the last spear of hay.
There will be no crowding with auch an
arrangement. Tho food will not ba soiled,
and the pen oan lie kept closed so that the
lambs cannot escape from jt. Kven when
tho fodder is not thrown down from the
floor above such a rack may be hung near
tho side of the pen, and the hay thrown
over iuto it from lhe feeding floor, giving
much mora feeding space to the flock than
would a rack nailed against the side of the
pen.
One Value of Rotation.
A student of lirat causes would doubtless
find that many things whicli are now engrafted as ptrts of our most common agricultural practice, owe their origin to an
observance of the ways of nature. In the
rotation of crops we but follow nature in
her habitual methods as Thoreau long ago
pointed out,when nn oak forest is cut away
the earth ia speedily reclcthed with pines;
clover, if left to itself, will Boon die out
and grasses take its place. Experimentation has shown thata soil may be ao barren
of certain elements of plant food that some
one orop wilt mako but the slightest growth
This would lead one who knew nothing of
the constituents of tiie soil, how varied
they are.and how different are the require-
* ments of different plants, to exclaim that
the soil itself was barren. But the intelligent farmer knows thii is not true, and he
varies the uses to which he puts the land,
bringing into play, iu successive seasons,
its most varied capabilities.
This necessity of rotation, in order to
make the cultivation of the land continuously profitable, is ao well understood
that wo noed hardly dwell upon it here.
But there is one result from rotati n, perhaps as valuable as that of bringing out
tho different food elemeuts, that is not so
well known. Tho destruction of crops with
the consequent loss to farmers from fungous diseases appears to be increasing each
year. It would bo dillicult to mention a
crop that had not its especial enemy of
this kind, which either lays it waste
wholly iu certain secsona or keepa up a
Blighter, but continuous attack upon it,
depreciating thn value of every harvest.
Potato acab, and rot, tho smut of oats, tho
rust of wheat, mildews and blights are
among tho thinga we speak of.
These diseases aro propagated by minute
seeds or grains, called spores; many of
which havo tho curious property of not
being ablo to exist upou other than the
plants which it particularly affects. Thus
while the spores will remain in a certain
field, awaiting and ready to attack the
crop as soon as it shall be planted again,
if another crop is substituted the spores
perish because they have not that upon
which they can subsist. If deprived of
their proper fond for a whole year, most
of those spores will peris).; although it
has been ascertained that the germs of
certain plant diseases have the power to
retain their vitality for i wo or more seasons.
This characteristic, of fastening ouly upon
tho certain crop, indicates very clearly the
value of a rotation where fields have
become thus infested, if the rotation jb
thorough, antl if seed of the diseased crops
are not jod. and if tho crops themselves
are not fed, and the manure resulting
therefrom returned to tho land; it fa comparatively easy to hold them in check. It
is mainly because of negligence, and iguor-
aueoof their characteristics, that they are
allowed to Bpread, and to bocome so
formidable.
It is important to know lhat the spores
are not destroyed hy passing through the
digestive organs ol cattle, and therofore
manure which could possibly contain them
had better bn burned rather than used to
further contaminate the soil. Certain ot
the states have recognized that the discuses
of fruit .rues aud plants could be held in
check to some degree by proper methods
of preventing spread and contagion, and
have legislated to that ell'ect. While too
much agricultural legislation is to be avoided, we think likoattention might properly
bo given the matter as alleating general
farm crops.
Tainted Butter.
In the fall and winter slightly tainted
butter is vory common hi tho market, and
makers oan not be ton particular in keep
lug thelf stock perfct:tly frco 'mm all faulty
flavor. The butler that is ouly slighi ly taint*
ed often causes tho greatest loss to the m iker.
This butter may be otherwise first-class,
and if sold on tho market at onco might he
marked as prime or fancy, says E.P, Smith.
But a slight taint develops rapidly, and
by the timo tho butter reaches tht
market there ia a faulty II ivor sullicient to
mark tho butter as second or third c'u-n*.
This causes too great a loss to be endured
with equanimity, and yet buttor must be
sold upon its merits.
There is other butter at thia time of thc
year that is so distinctly out of flavor thm
one must conclude lhat the manufacture!
knew wha he was doing. He intended io
save in feeding and make inferior butler,
and l.e gota ouly the price that all fault-*,
butter brings There is no sympathy with
such manufacturers, for they are steadily
injuring the reputation of American butter
both at home and abroad.
Most or the trouble comes direct frum
fcoding. Every one fa trying to economize
iti feeding at ihis time of the year. Frost)
feed is the most prolific cause of slighii)
defective butler. Tho taint allows Itsoll
early and develops rapidly, deteriorating
tho butter so that it cannot endure storage
very long. Creameries for aelf protection
must insiat upon farmers feeding only good
feed to their cows. A little independent
investigation would soon weed out the farmers who feed any and every thing to then
cows from those who are particular to teed
md "fodder. In this way tho right
Vuller the loss,and not the helples*
^or lhe innocent creameries.
��� many other things besidesdefec-
tat cause trouble in the butter,
lie way in which the cream is
handled in cold weather. Some dairymen
think that the cold weather will keep the
cream all right without any special care on
their part. In the summer time they know
deterioration is rapid,and tbey have to use
cold storage and the best methods for
aerating the milk. But frequently in the
fall and winter no attention is paid to
aerating or cooling the milk, and it ia simply poured into the deep delivery cans over
night and left there until morning. The
milk is affected in this way and the butter
is inferior. The milk and cream must be
kept sweat, pure, and clean in winter ob
well as in summer. If more attention waa
paid to winter keeping of cream and milk,
aod better feed given to the cows,we would
have less defective and faulty-flavored
butter in the market.
AGRICULTURE IN BRITAIN.
���Ureal (biiii-*.*-�� Have Token Place hi Ike
Laat Firiren Year**.
In referring to the resumption of its
sittings by the Royal commission appointed
to enquire into the agricultural depression
prevailing in Great Britain, the London
Timea remarks that profound changes
have taken place in the oondition of agriculture in the United Kingdom since the
last Royal commission waa appointed fif*
teen years ago. In 1 s,~*(i there were 4,21ft,*
651 acres under cultivation with wheat in
(ireat Britain, and the average price por
quarter was .-ill shillings, but sinco that
period the area devoted to this crop has
steadily been reduced. In 1*7-1 it wns
3 050,400 acres, and last year only 1,012,*
7 I'd acres were devoted to the growing of
wheat, while the price has fallen to 21
shillings per quarter. These figures reflect
the desperate condition of agriculture in
Britain. Taking the whole agricultural
land of Great Britain thofollowiug changes
are found to have occurred during the last
fifteen years:���
1803-4. 1379*80.
Acres. Acrea.
Corn crops 7,755,858      8,930,468
Green crops 3,293,837      3,515-485
Grass land 16,478,818     14,206,841
In the fit teen years the are!*, devoted to
grain has decreased 1,175,112 acres, that
devoted to roots aud green crops haB decreased 221,818 acros, while the area of
permanent grass land has increased 2,181
077 acres, As the Times remarks, the
most striking figures are those which
records an increase of upwarda of two
million acres in the area of permanent grans
land (permanent pasture, or grans not
broken up in rotation). More than half of
the entire cultivated area of Great Britain
ia now occupied by -permanent pasture,
though there are the strongest ground for
the suggestion that much   of the lands���
fiarticularly in parts of England���which
las been described as "out of cultivation"
really lies hidden amongst the 16J million
acres denoted as permanent pasture.
A SOLDIER'S RECKLESS DISCIPLINE
A Rut*-Inn Cflptnln Prilled a Soldier
While the Mulh-U Hal iml Itomi.l
Tbem.
At Sebastopol, during tbe siege, a Captain Samoiloir, wishing some wine, ordered
an ollicer to send a man after it. The man,
a young soldier, took the money und started to do the errand. Just then, however,
a French battery had concentrated its lire
upon the very spot whero the young man
must go outside the works. He stopped,
aad then turned back. "I wouldn't go out
there for the world I'' he said.
The oflicer, of course, reported tho act of
disobedience to the captain. The captain,
in a rage, ordered tho man into his presence, aud demanded why ho had uot obeyed his captain's order.
"I beg you to pardon me, captain, but I
waB terribly afraid."
Afraid I" cried the captain. " Afraid!
A Russian soldier afraid ! Wait a minute.
I will drive the fear out of you. Como
with me."
Tho oaptain led tho way to the rampart,
mounted it, and there, with tho bullets
raining round him, begin putting the man
through Bome military exercises. The
lookers-on in the fort held their breath. If
a hat was put on a bayonet ami lifledabovo
tho walls, the bullets came that way ou tho
instant,
Nnt many seconds elapsed befote a bullet
struck the captain in the arm. Uu did not
wince, but kept on with the drill, while
tho blood dripped down his hand to the
wall.
Next a bullet went through tho tail of
the soldiers' coat, and another through his
knapsack. Then suddenly thc tiring ceased.
The soldier besged for grace, end promised to go wherever he waa sent. Still
tho captain continued his drill. When he
thought the ksson had been learned, or,
perhaps, when hia arm grew too painful,ha
dismissed the soldier and went himself to
the sun-eon and had his wound dressed.
The French explained afterward that they
ceased firing out of sheer ustonishmant at
the sight of the two men exposing themselves bo recklessly.
"If they had been English instead of
French," concludes tho Russian officer who
tells the story, ami who evidently has a
prejudice against John Bull, "they would
have killed our brave captain past a
doubt,"
Pitifully Humorous.
Some Lien's wives are too much like
���oaves, beings whoso duty it is to ho contented with pleuty of hard work antl something lass than a plenty of hoard and
clothes. Suoh a case seems to have been
brought to light in southern Indiana, under
circumstances half-pathetic, halMiuiiiorua
An aged couple who had lived snugly for
many years, Bold their farm for sixteen
thousand dollars, In due courae the put*
chaser called with a notary to close up the
business, The notary had prepared adeeil,
which the farmer signed, and passed to his
wife, w hose signature also was necessary.
To the surprise of all concerned, the
woman refused to put her namo lo the
document.
"1 have lived on this farm for fifty years,"
���the said, " and I'm not going to sign nway
my rights unless I get something out of it
that I can call iny own."
The husband reasoned with her ; the
notary did likewise. She was immovable.
1'he purchaser grew nervous. Thero was no
telling how unreasonable lu r demands might
he, and he was eager to get the farm.

Visiting cards to the number of 60,000,'
000,000 are annually put into circulation
by the people of the world according to the
atatement of a statistician. He also Bays
that the pro rata consumption by individuals is greatest among crowned beads and
royalty generally.
The popular notion of Princes is that
they travel about with so much pomp and
circumstantiality as to prelude the necessi.
ty of carrying printed pasteboards. But
thu statistician bases his figures on the
very best sources���royalty's copper-plate
printers.

the monurchs uf thu world with visiting

Willi .din's unwieldy pasteboard is a Berlin
production, done by litography, and about
fifty years behind the times in all but the
paper used.
"Lithography," said a leading stationer,
"was first employed in the making of visiting cards whon, after the coup d'etat, Na*
poleau ordered pasteboards that contained
his Christian name only. Things were all
in a rush than,and his newly baked Majesty
refused to wait for the slow engraving
process. When it leaked out that the
head of the state, the most talked of man
in Kurope, used lithographed cards, the
thinga becamo in vogue. Thua an enormous
industry wis due to a clever man'a intent-
ness to see himself in print, royal stylo
without any appellation as to rank���plain
���Napoleon', neither more ncr less."
Tho use of the Christian name only is a
prerogative which kings and emperors
share with servants. The other day a
royalist in Paris showed a correspondent a
visiting card inscribed "Philippe" under a
crowu. Ten thousand of that aort were
ordered by the Duke of Orleans bofore his
father's body waa cold. The candidate for
the throne intended to appeal to his supporters, or those wham he would like to
win over to tho oamo of the lily bauner,by
mailing them his visiting card. *

The visiting card without words, so
much ia use in all circles of Parisian
society, is really
A CARD O? IS'VITATIOX.
It contains the name of the host and the
date for which the invitation is issued, and
if it ia for a dinner a gorgeously appointed
table io one corner will proclaim tbat fact.

place. A group of trees with Chineae lanterns fastened to the branches foreshadows
a garden festival, while a four-horse mail-
coach announces an excursion. Invitation
cards to picnics are decorated witii an
empty dinner basket.
Attempts to timl a suitable substitute
for cardboard have been unsucessful. Some
time ago in Paris it waa pronounced the
fashionable thing to carry sheet.too cards
so thin that forty of them, placed one upon
another, mado a package one millimetre io
height. The letters wero stamped in and
enamelled. Aluminum card* have also
been thought of,
Tbe visiting card of the Kmperor of
Austria reads: " Francois Joseph I.,
Empereur d'Autriche, Koi de Huugrie."
This is in the very worst of taste, according to Knglish notions, which strictly prohibit the us.* of the Christian name in
connection with one's title. British society
has used somo sort of visiting card for
nearly two hundred years. The early
Knglish cards were used exclusively by
great statesmen and peers as a uieana of
notifying the people of less quality lhat
their visit would be acceptable.
The party issuing the invitation wrote
his name on the top of a card and that of
the party he desired to see at the bottom,

lords a visitors' book was kept, where
callers registered their names if the host
was "oot iu," but as in those good old
timea chirography was not a gentleman's
necessary accomplishment the thing had its
disadvantages. Finally aome swart old
squiro conceived the idea of having his
name inscribed on email sheets of paper by

The Emperors of Germany and Austria
on their visiting cards follow a German
imstom and print, part of their title. According to fashion a dictum their visiting
cards should either read "Wilhelm" and
"Franz Joseph,"reBpectively,or "Deutscher
Kaiser" aud "Kaiser von Oeterreich."
THE PRINCE   OK WALKS,
almost moat correct in matters of etiquette,
has two BortB of cards, one reading "Albert
Kdward," the other " Le Prince deGallos,"
tlio French term being more often used in
royal circles than the other. French being
tho universal language of royalty, all mon-
archs have their visiting cards for general
use inscribed in the Gallic tongue. Some
Princes uso cards which give their name
and title in the native language, but iu
must cases that ia done fora purpose.
"Tho" in front of a royal or princely
title denotes that tho person is a sovereign,
oi- at least the head of his family. In
Kngland it is employed in addressing a peer,
for instance, " The Kight Honorable."

Uncomfortable Resemblance.
An activo member of the London detective force narrates an amusing adventure,
which shows that the cleverest of men are
liable to err when nature sets herself to
outwit them.
I was instructed to arrest a certain man,
with whose appearance I felt myself to be
perfectly familiar, and I kept a keen lookout for my customer. The very next day
I "spotted" him on an omnibus in the
Strand, pursued the vehicle, aud having
satisfied myself by a closer look, took him
away to the station, he all tho while protesting that I hail made a mistake,
I had. Ho turned out to be a respectable gentleman, with a most peculiar and
uufortunato likeness to tbe " wanted"
man. I was much disappointed ; nut only
had I missed the party I wanted, but J
had bungled the job, I waa yet in my
detective novitiate, and I got pretty
severely snubbed by my ohief.
Tha very next day, while walking down
a street,���iu Islington thia time,���I slopped
and rubbed my eyes. Here wss my man
coming, dressed tutally unlike the stranger
of yesterday. 1 tapped him on the arm.
He turned round ami exclaimed, " Vou, Is
it'; " and I informed him ot my businesa.
Kntering a cab, wo went lo the atation, not
another work passing between us.
To my amazement and disgust, he again
turned out to be the wrong man, tho ono I
had arrested the day before 1
"Why did you uot explain?" I asked,
somewhat excitedly.
'Sir I" be thundered, "from my ex
perience of you yesterday, 1 came to the
conclusion you were no gentleman ;" and
larting a withering glunco ut me, he dis
appeared.
An Affectionate Mother.
Tho most alloc lion ate mother I e vor knew
said Col. Goslington, and I believe a'l mo*
(hers are affectionate, Is the wife of my
young nephew, Claude Goslington. When
their young child was sick its mother took
its medicine for it. It was some sort of
bitter medicine, and when it came time to
take it the child said : "I can't lake that's
nasty I" "Well, 'oo needn't take it, Regie-
mamma will take it for 'oo," Aud she did,
and thereafter at the appointed times alio
took Regie's medicine lor him regularly.
Regie got well, notwithstanding that he
didn't get hia mediclno ; hut what child
could stay long sick wilh such a mother as
that ?

The operations of the Dominion post-
oflice for 1893 resulted in a dead loss of
$047,606. In 1808, the first year of Con-
federation, it only amounted to $28,850.
Though the revenue has steadily increased,
rom $1,024,710 In 1568, to $3,098,062 in
1893, the expenditure has also steadily increased in a still greater ratio, writes a
.Montreal correspondent. Applying the
increase of both to population, we fin 1
that while tho revenue has only increased
from thirty to seventy-four cents per head,
the expenditure bos increased from thirty-
one to eighty-eight cents per hoad. To tho
loss must be added a portion, at least, o
the subsidies paid to mail steamship.*!,
$418,830
Thia ia a heavy drain upon the resources
of a young country, and suggests the enquiry whether anything can be done to
augment the revenue,fur there is Ilttlo hope
that the expenditure can be seriously tli
minished, owing to the incessant demand
for new offices, and nmre frequent mails
The increase iu the number of new ���.-like
since confederation has been very large,
viz., from -3,038 to 8,477, while the number
of letters has increased iu a much greater
ratio, say from eighteen to 1U(�� inilljoni
and post-cards from four millions, iu 1870
to twenty-two millions in 1S'J3, This ia
very satisfactory, for nothing affords a moro
convincing proof of
THE PB00R18S OK A NATION
than the number of letters and post-cards
passing through its poBt*olIice.
While the number passing through tho
Canadian post-oflice is larger per head
than in France,lJelgium,Holland,Denmark,
Russia, Austria, Hungary, Norway, Italy
Spain and Portugal, it is yet Ices than
one-half the number, per head, carried iu
Great Britain, the United States and
most of the Australian colonies, and less
than in Sweden and Switzerland, Ontario
however, ranking far above Quebec. No
cun plaint can be made on the score of letter postage, considering the enormous distances travelled,and tbe sparse population ;
but the registration fee of five cents is too
high ; a lower charge would probably produce more revenue, especially if a small
compensation in case of loss were allowed,
as in Great Britain.
In aome otherreapects.howover, the Dominion post-oflice is behind the age, and far behind the Imperial post-oflice. In the matter
of parcels thiB is especially the case. To great
diti'.nl.uting centres like Montreal and Toronto this is a matter of the greatest importance. Large houses that might be
mentioned must send many thousands of
parcels to country districts in the courso
of a year, and though the express companies
will deliver parcels at moderate rates in
towns aud villages where there is a railway
station, there ia a vast number of villages
where there is a post-oflice but no railway
station, or only one whicli is several milea
from the village. It ih in tliese latter especially that the post-otlice regulations ua to
parcels are found to be so oppressive,
IN THR  IIRITISH I'OST-OFKICK
the carriage of parcels has assumed enormous dimensions. In 1887 the number
carried was a little over thirty-two mill*
ions; io 1S!H) it had increased to over forty-
twomillious,atidin 18114 tofifty-fourtnillions 1
You can send a closed parcel weighing one
{round from any post-office in the United
kingdom to any other, a maximum
distance of about six hundred miles
for six cents ; a two pound parcel for
nine cents : or a three pound parcel
for twelve cents; but in Canada tho
charge is twenty-four cents, forty-eight
cents, and seventy-two cents respectively.
You can send a one pound parcel from
Kngland to China for twenty cents ;
but for a similar parcel for a distance of
only tiliy-seveu milea, our post-ofi'ico
charges twenty-four cents 1 It is true that
such a parcel, if "open to inspection" is
only charged sixteen cents, but people will
not send valuables by post "open to inspection," nor Bhould the post-office encourage such a system, for it needlessly
tempts their employees.
This iB not all. In cities and largo towns
the British post-office will send a van, free
of charge, to collect parcels from any store
supplying not lees than ten at a time, or
fifty in a week, and will deliver them at
your own door; should the consignee reside
at a distance from a post-oflice they will
deliver them by a special messenger at only
0 cents per mile, or bya cab it specially
paid for. Then in case of Iobb or damage
the poBl-oliice witl pay up to $10 ; for a
fee of four cents the compensation is in-
creased io S25, and bo on to the maximum
of $27,0 for a fee of twenty-two centa.
No wonder that with all those attractions
THE I'AHCKL l'OST
has become bo popular. In Canada it is
very different ; tor a parcel for whioh the
post-office charges forty-eight or seventy-
two cents, the express companies charge
only twenty-five cents and thus thoy get
the cream of tho buaineaa, and, as ia well
known, make large profits nut of it. The
result is that whereas iu l-i**.7 the Canadian
poBt'oflicv carried S-J(),000 parcels, in I si I'll carried only 843,000, a diminution of fifty,
eight percent, and, of course, a proportionate loss of revenue. Ita parcel postage
indeed seems lo be a relic of the past, wheu
the mails were earned by stage,or on horseback, or by hand, ard weight was a matter
of importance. Now the post-otfico pays
over two million dollars a year for the
carriage of mails, chiefly to the great rail*
way companies, and they should carry any
number of parcels without inconvenienco
or extra charge. Ifthe obnoxious condition ret'uirinif parcels to be Ojien to inspection wero abolished, and the present rate
of one cent per pound levied on small parcels with a maximum charge of ten up to
ono pound and five cents for every extra
pound,and thc rato " well advertised," thore
ib little doubt that the post-ollica parcel
business would soon run up to thi millions,
especially if the sin compensation, and the
special delivery wero added; ami lhat the
revenue in a short timo would ho increased
by at least $5fl,f*00 a year. Hut parcels
must be delivered as promptly as letters and
not detained twenty-four hours as lhey
often arc now. The department must run
llie risk of a fow letters'boing placod in
parcels by dishonorable persous.as tho.British office does.
Then the British post-oflice has in recent
years inaugurated another greatconvcnience,
THE POSTAL ORDKlE.
Such orders aro Issued at any post-office in
the Kingdom, payable at auy other postotlice at a very email charge, but limited lo
twenty shillings ($5) each. They are issued for ono shilling (1*5 cents), at achargo
of one cent; up to ten shillings andsixpeuce
at a charge ot two cents, and up to Iwunty
shillings at a charge ol three cents. Practically, any odd sum cau be remitted. Thc
name of thc payee may be inserted by the
sender, but it appears that this is often
left blank, and thus thoy pass from hand
to haud aa   remittances,  like small   bank
noteB. Thev are found tobe exceeding!)
useful,nut only in nuking small remittances
but to travellers. Tliey must, huwever, be
| presented fur payment within three months
oftbelr iisue.    Why should not tbe system
i be adopted in Canada?
Then, in the money order department
another great oonvenfenoe has been established. "Telegraph money orders," are
issued between nil head and  branch offices,
authorised to transact money order but loess.
, They are limited lo ttu pounds [501, and
I the Commission Is double the ordinary rates;
I and in addition, a charge  of uiuepence  (is
cents) ii made for telegraphic advice and
[ its repetition. The lender may also send a
| telegram for twelve cents.
A consessfon, too, is made in the charge
for letter rates, when they exceed One ounce
in weight. Coder ono ounce, the charge is
two cents; under two ounces, however, it is
only threo cents ; under four ounce*', four
cents; and bo ou, one cent increase for- very
two ounce?. Ol course the population is
very dense, and the distances comparatively
abort, but the great aim is to meet in every
possible wu\,
THK CoSVK.VIKM'K OK TIIK I 1*111.1'.
In the city of Loudon, that is, (.he eastern
central district, oi heart, of London, there
aro twelve free deliveries daily [ iu oiher
diBt.icts within tlneo miles ol the pelt-
OtSoO, eleven deliveries, ind iu lhe tut* urlis
six deliveries ; and iu all other oltlei .md
towns, from two to four. For nu extra fee
of four oenta, paid to a railway company,
a letter may bu sent by any train, and by
au arrangement between the poit-offlce ami
the company, the latter will deliver it to
the petsoi) to whom it is addresto 1, at their
station, or post it at the i;< iresi Liter-box.
The result is thai the British pjst-offioe in
IS03 4 made a olear profit of over eighteen
million dollars, (��:.,740,000sterling). From
this, however, must be deducted part or
the whole, of a DO tit three and a half million
dollars {��72,-1,1.00) paid to the mail steamships aa subsidies. Iu 1st], the first year
of Rowland Hili'-ipenny poitage, the profit was only two and a hail million dollars
(��300,780), It will ihui be Been thit there
is ample room for  Improvement in the
Canadian poslnl Hy-trill, and it may he
hoped that tho government will do its
utmost to afford the public every convenience, in doing which it will aurely a id to
the revenue.
The franking system, too, may well lo
abolished. It is said to be much abused ;
it was in England. If members of Parliament must be indulged, let them be {iml n
fixed sum for postage in addition to their
mileage, and then insist on
KVKBVTlllNU IIEINd STAMl'KD.
Post-office officials, however, arc not
always the best judges in bucIi matters.
When Rowland Hill first proposed "penny
postage," the then Postmaster* Genera I, I
Lord Lichfield, said of it in the House of
Lords:���"Of ail tho wild,visionary schemes
which 1 have ever heard of this in the most
extravagant." By olher officials it was
denounced "ruinous." and even in 1843,
when it had been in operation threo year.*,
Colonel Moborley, the Chief Secretary, told
a Parliamentary nommitteG :��� "This plan,
wo know, will fail Itmustfail/'ana Mr. j
Goulhurn, the Chancellor ol th Exchequer,
thought so too. The experience of Creat
Britain shows that high rates and slow deliveries result in a low revenue ; hul that
cheap uniform rales, and rapid delivery
will produce large revenue. Since IS.'ID
tho inland letter rate has been reduced
from a maximum of forty cents io a uniform rate of two cents, am) lhe colonial
and foreign letter rate, from a maximum
rato of eighty-four cents to a uniform rate
of fivo cents ; with the very great advantage of enclosures up to o:ie ounce in the

that the net, revenue has increased from

A New Battleship.
A new idea iu battle ships is brilliant in
spite of its carrying us a few score yours
backward. Mr. Laird Clowes has proposed
to tbo British Admiralty that three deckers
shall be nude again; and, when wc come to
think of it, there is a good deal to be suid
for his plan. Mr, Clowes has conceived a
12.000 ton ship, with medium armor ami
high speed, in tho three-decker form, to
carry 100 guns in the manner of lhe old-
time ships, only these guns will he quick
firing. Tho quick firing guns nowadays, it
must be remembered, go up to six or Bight
inches calibre. They ara the heaviest art il*
lery of old endowed wilh revolver*like
rapidity in shooting. There need he no

AtSt. Bartholomew's Hospital. London,
an ingenious hot-air bath is now in use for
ihe treatment of sprains, inflamed joints
due to gum or rheumatism, and similar
affections, It consists of a copper cylinder
about three feet long ami eighteen inches
m diameter, which will hold an arm up to
the shoulder or a leg up to tho middle of
the thigh ; it stands on an iron frame, and
is heated by gas burners placed underneath, so that lhe temperature can be
rained to 'ti'O or 4'JU degrees Fahrenheit.
The patient is placed 'ii a arm chair at one
end of the cylinder, the limb is introduc-
nl, and the joint made air tight by a rub-
her bind. No discomfort is felt up to 27))
degress, until perspiration sets in, when
ihe nofsture has a scalding effect, wbioh
is relieved by opening thn further end of

the other day of muii'-laughter and each
sentenced to 11 years in the penitentiary,
Thu crime for which lhe two men, who,
when members of the police force, were
convicted, was the killing of Swan Nelson

The birthday of the ('.rand Old Man
of Germany occurred week ago last
Monday, jnd the demonstrations show-
tint the Iron Chancellor is slill a power,
ftnd that in his ole. age lie fa followed
hy the love ami reverence of his coun
trynien.     Germany is not ungrateful.
The attcii.pl on the life of I.i Hung
Chang happily failed. Doubtless the
Japanese rejoice at this even more than
the Chinese, neverthek'-.s it was their
dmy to see that, while in the country
on a pc ireful mission, he was properly
protected, Il is to he hoped that the
unfortunate affair will not delay the
negotiations lor peace.
I.ord Rose berry's health has become
so shattered that he must before long
retlie from the premiership. Who will
succeed him if his piny is not over
thrown it is difficult to sny. There is
some talk of (lladstonq again taking
thc reins of power. Me has regained
lhe use of his cycsij-lit and his natural
force appears still unabated.
The Snvtll iJebls Act is in operation
in the cities but not here for the reason
that we have no siipei.dia'y nngistrate,
and yel there is no especial need for
the new law in the cities where they
have thc county courts, The cities
wished to be exempt from its provisions
bui the country demanded il and yet is
thc last to get it. Perhaps the govern
ment is awaiting the end of the fiscal
year. If the money voted in the esti
mates is nol now available, we are
quite sure the magistrate will ait for
thc fees. This indifference to our
wants ii not the way to make  frieKds.
Thc question ol what "to do with
criminals is one which is demanding in
creased attention. That the law should
look rather to reformation than to pun
ish ment is conceded The system of
separation is heing tried with good
results; but that of abolishing imprisonment fur life, and allowing a per
tent of earnings to go to the prisoner on his release, and giving merit
marks fur good conduct so as to cna*
ble him by means of these to short
en his term, so as to appear in the
world again with some means and an
established character, is one that should
everywhere be   adopted.
TUB CHINESE PRISONERS
Mme than the trophies, more than the
news of victory, lhe Chinese prisoners at
tract the interest as well as tlie curiosity
of the J apanese. Some Inul begun to
feel alarm lest these unwelcome guests
should come so thick as to render it difficult to make room for them in this already too thickly populated land. A
certain Chinese general is said to have
once su^ucsied that the best way to. "do
up" Japan was to surrender en masseand
eat up that small island. Some months
ago when i io captives arrived in Japan,
quarters were assigned to them* in three
different cities- Tokio, Osaka and H'no-
shima, where they were received' with a
friendliness hardly to be expected in a
hostile country. Their advent of course
excited the curiosity of the people of the
country as to hew they would look; so
much so that when the Tokio loi of 55
reached Sliimbasi station they were
awaited by great crowds of people in the
street along which they passed. Their
unhappy lot and pitiable condition elicited
the sympathy rather than the .scorn of
the spectators. It was indeed a strange
sight, to see some of these captives carry-'
ing broken cups as if they were the rich
est treasures in the world. Others nib-
hied remnants of victuals as if they' were
the greatest dainties���all this, too, while
they were marching along the street on
their way to the Red Cross society's hospital in the Shibfcya district.   When they

FRIVOLITY.
Otn* ���biUotU
No doubt I here are some grounds for
believing that lhe world is growing worse.
The increase of frivolity anion*.: the young
pcup'c should cause alarm, and br ng 10
light so-ne refwim. With all our boasted
civilization, we must admit that this is an
age of shams. Everywhere thc best of
us is brought to thc surface; polishing rather than refining seems to be the order
ofthe day The solid groundwork ol
character building is so slighted in the
mad rush for thc world's pleasure, that
every department of human progress call-;
for men of higher qunllttes than we produce.
The tastes ofthe people betray this con
tinually, for a calliihumpian procession,
or the jingling of hells on the tools' cap
of socitly, is more highly appreciated
than thc sober thoughts of the noble, lhe
sublime and the beautiful.
Ihis mnflk'ey-on- the -stick business is *���
crying shame in our times, and the youths
who should be versed in oratory, literature, politics and the natural sciences, is
wasting his time with black-jack, poker
and cigarettes. The girl who should be
able to sway the mind ol a multitude, and
charm by true womanliness the better
qualities of men to the front, is satisfied
to pose in ignorance, and don dress and
powder aud paint, and forget the fact
lhat true womanhood is made of better
stuff.
'lhe grand possibilities of happiness
on every hand are spumed by us and wc
spend ouj days as idle children in the
worlds best library, looking for pictures
and simple stories, and passing over the
ennobling thoughts of the great poets,
with no other conpliment than the ravages of greasy ringer marks.
MISSION OF THE NEWSPAPER,
The public generally ha* e always muc*1
to say concerning thc mission of ihe new s
paper. Here as elsewhere are many who
never lose an opportunity lo ventilate
their opinion ns to how it should be con
ducted. None, however, has belter set
forth its work than a reverend gentleman,
who recently was discoursing upon jour
nalisin: "It is the mission of the news
paper to publish the news. Now it i-. a
fact that, from the man who waters Ins
milk to thc cold-blooded murderer, all
degrees of criminal mankind want news
suppressed. Liars, ihiever, scandal-mon
gers, deceivers, burglars, fighters, adulter
ers, OAMBLBRSi drunkards and gentlemen
rascals alt cry out against the news pub
lishcis. Their business is disturbed by
the cry of newspaper*:. Hut no one who
is open and honest and free from an>
taint of transgression wants news sup
pressed." It would he a blessed thing if
those who are accustomed to carpal mod
ern journalist, in season and out of season, would put themselves m possession
ofthese remarks on the province of the
newspaper, and read, mark, learn, and
inwardlv digest them. Vancouver World.
