A Correction.
We clip ths following from Xanaimo's
new paper, The Daily Telegram, issue of
the rath inst. We are glad to give full
credit to Rev. I. I J. Good as the founder
ofthe .Mission here. Geo. F. Drabble,
J. P. remembers Mr. Pideock as having
first pre-empted the property, but he says
he afterwards abandoned it when ii was
pie-einpteci by the Rev. J. ll. Good as
states below:
Editor Teh-gram. ��� 1
Doubtless your esteemed contcm'ior- j
dry the editor of the Courtenay News
.viuie the account ofthe cstablislnneni of
our church at Pideock Landing in the 1
wdmox settlement to the best of his
knowledge, but ntrne hiib been led unintentionally no doubt into making one
statement thai does nn Injustice to myself, he Hill I tiust be j-rtlcl of the collection.
During my first residence here as Rector of St. Paul, horn 1861-6, 1 visited Comox several times each jcar, al no little
risk and discomfort in those days, preempted thc land, buiit ihe log hut and
church, obtained a certificate of improvement and then transferred the whole lo
the Bishop without anv CONSIDEUA-
TION WHATEVER. Mr. Cave was my
catechist at Nanaimo went to Comox to
act as my assistant there. He was paid
through nln and I hive still all thc items
ofexi-.ii iiurc at Comox from the first
bv mu
Mr. Jcnns, now of St. John's followed
me here and Dr. Garrett did hot conic to
Nanaimo till 1868, visiting Comox occasionally like his predecessor but no one
had anything to do with building or improvement but myself with Mr. Gave as
my agent lill the present rector, Rev. X.
Willemar was senl there.
Mr. Cave afterwards took work alNew
Westminster, under De. Hay man "here
he received Deacon's orders and subsequently went home and was curate in
charge of Axiniuisicr when he   died.
Bay Reading Room.
There will be a meeting in the Reading room at ihe Bay, on the evening of
Friday the 24th Nov. at half past seven
o'clock. All interested in the Reading
Ri.oin arc cordially invited tu attend.
A committee will be appointed to take
the management and general superintendence. Several contributions in monev
have been received. A handsome lamp
had been supplied by Mr. Moore, a piano
has been loaned by Miss Barnes, and
books by Messrs Anderton, Derbyshire
and others.
We trust lhat all will lake an interest
in the Reading Room, as ii will no doubt
be found a great convenience on steamer
days as :t confutable place for those who
ci-iii'* long distances to meet ihc steamer,
The rules and otSer items of interest vviil
$&published in this paper alter next Friday's meeting; al*>o a list of the contributors tu these good works.

Weekly Mall  Required
Editor NEWS: I see by your lasl issue
thc ss. Joan has quit running to this place
as it is claimed it does nol pay, aud lhey
receive nothing for carrying tlie mail. I
don't blame them fnr quitting j nobody
likes to work for nothing And you say
the mail ought to be taken overland
through Comox valley every two weeks
Until such time as arrangements can be
made for lanying it by steamer. Now,
Mr. Editor, what have we people done
up here to be issolated from the outside
world? Ileiewnare with a population
larger than Read, Cortes, and Hernando
Islands put together, and mark! each has
a post-office and a weekly mail service.
Their mail is delivered a certain day and
from one two days elapses, giving ihem
sufficient time to answer their letters before the steamer returns and picks up
the mail bag. And slill some people
think we are only entitled lo a fortnightly
mail as heretofore we could not answer
our letters after receiving them as ihe
steamer did not si iy long enough to enable us 10 do so. and ii is not uncommon
for us to Ik- without any mail for three
orfourweck". Mr. Haslam h nol our
member, but I know the gcntlcmiin and
know he will do all in his power to help
us in the maticr. Though Mr.Corbould,
our own member night look into this
and get us a weekly service Our voles
may be of -en ii c to somebody provided
we had the n legistered before next elco
lion, We will have to hoist a flag of out
own soon if the government docs not
recognize us.
Tom Bell".
Note.- Our corrospondent should re
member thnt Comox, owing 10 its long
business relations with Valdes I (.land desires mail service with it restored and
that Mr. Haslam, our member may properly be appea ed lo, to help us which wc
are sure be will do so far as he can We
have signed and circulated a petition for
a weekly service hy steamer between
here and Valdes Maud and forwarded il
to the proper atrhorttie*-*, Ir. the mean-
lime we desire an overland service and if
II can be made weekly, su much lhe belter. Wc think with our correspondent,
lhat Valdes Island has not been proper-
!v treated in the matter ofa mail service,
and we also think ihi. district should not
I   be deprived of ail mail connections  with
(hat island.

A grass or clover crop would Ihj im more of

armors, as many of  our most  destructive

Due feature of tliese pests is that the majority of them winter over ill llie ground,in
either ono or the Other of three stages of
development. That is, they are either iu
the grub, pupal or adult atato,and iu either
of these more or less susceptible to the
changes of the weather,   especially   dm ing

practically go t<j sleep and remain in that
condition until wm in wealher. Whatever
tbo farmer oau do, after this sleepy, stupid
condition cornea en, to wreck these winter
quarters, will be to throw the occupants
out of their homes to tbe mercy of tho elements, while the makers arc iu an unfit
condition to construct others.   Whatever
the farmer can do to disturb or break up
the surface of tlie ground lato in lho fall
has this effect, ami therefore, fall plov/lng

There nre many theories that look well
on paper ha', do not come out right in practice. I d.i not wish to lie understood as
saying tnat fall-plowed ground will escape
nil insect attack. I have seen fall-plowed
fields ruined tbe following year hy Insect",
but tbey wore not such as are uffected iu
the way mentioned, ami in fact, oaina into
tbe field front outside ; while on the oilier
baud, I have seen fields where a part of Um
plowing had been done iu fall and a part iu
Bpring,.tho former portion escaping injury
while the hitter was totally destroyed.
Prof. W. tl. Ragan, of Oreoncastlo, Indiana, last year related the experience of a
neighbor of bis who took advantage of some
unusual weather iu February, some yeara
atfo, to break a piece ot clover sod for com,
When about two-thirds through breaking
the field, of say ten acres, tho recurrence of
more timely i'ehruary weather caused bim
to suspend further operations until April,
when the other third of the field was broken
and all similarly prepared and planted.
The corn on that portion broken in Foh-
ruiary was a complete stand, yieldingn line
crop, while that on tbo late-plowed pari
was almost wholly destroyed by eulwiirm-
���indeed, having in bo replanted entirely
and yielding only a partial crop of late corn
uml immature fodder.
I do not believe the above is at all an exceptional case, but that, while there are ojf-
captions, It will US a rule prove true. 1
bolievo that if fall plowing were followed,
enough insectfi would be destroyed to hai-
lanoe tho cost of tho operation, thus leaving the farmer witb no oxponso for plowing ; ami if done, as is often tbe case, when
uo other work Ib needing uttontlon, iL will
bo soon to he a very profitable  ooonpatioil.
The fact in, insecticides are all right for
tho truck farmer and fruit grower, but the
grain grower, especially west of the Allegheny mountains, must have some othor
means of fighting insect peats. The expense
of application will be greater than llie value
of tho crop, even if be could command the
help to make the application within Unnecessary time. It is t. ne that fall plow-
inu eau uot be followed advantageously in
all localities and in all soils. Where the
count ry i'i hilly and thc soil of a nature that
makes it wash readily, such a measure is
not practicable, but His not in such places
that cutworms or wlroworms are destructive, and it is only (hi; white grub that b
thereto he dealt with. This latter pest
appeals to eome Irieniiially, ami I can not
hut feel that we shall be able lo uso thia
trait of character to advantage in warding
off their attacks.
Jll regard to tht) depth of fall plowing, it
Booms quite probable that about five
or six inches would suffice, i bough probably
seven or eight might do better, Laat
spring 1 noticed that tbe grubs in the sod
ground i n the sl.ition farm were just abnut
reached at six Inches, and believe plowing
at that depth would OXpoge the most of
them to tlm freezing ami   l hawing   nud l he

Wanted the little lad until tbey came In the
Squire. Ho had just lost his errand boy,
and it was nn easy matter for bim to get

The Squire consented at once to take little

hut Frik's father thought it waa better tor
the boy lo earn bis board than nothing.
So be loft tbo little follow with the Squire.
Little Frik served tho obi miser faithfully for three years, aud then, as there
aoomed to bo no promise of reward, made
up Ilia mind to try his luck at some other
place. Tlio Squire aaid he was sorry to part
witb bim, but if ho must go , it was only
fair to pay him what he bad earned. So
he gave little Frik a silver penny for each

This made little Frik quite happy. Ho
had never had so much money for his own
in his whole life. Still be thought it wiao
to ask if Lhat was all.

Keep a Rscord-
We have often, when corresponding with
progressive butter m ikers, advised them to
weigh each churning and record the Weight.
In recent correspondence with Mrs. l'eter
H row ii, it was learned that such bad boen
the practice for years.   She writes: " Wo
churn every   lay except Sunday, and every
churning i    weighed and Bet down una
piece of paptr,     1 add every month and at.
the  end   of the year I add  the  whole and
put  it in   tho account book,"
That is business, and as farmers and
dairymen are not only producers but dealers
and business men and women as well, they
should adopt business methods, which Mrs.
Hrown has done.
Make Good Buttor-
It is quite often that we read an item in
Home agricultural paper like the following :
" If you expect to BUoeeod in butter making
you must keep a sharp lookout on the market aud find out thc kind of butter It di-
rounds. As requirements of the market,
varies, yjii are of course to vary your product   accordingly."    Then, again, a private

The best method of keeping tools where
one has no regular root cellar is lo bury on

Now that Ihe staple crops are low, look

Ono of tho Important points In makinn
preparation for winter is (o see that lhe
cellar is in proper condition. It is the
OUBtOiri of some to seal tint cellar up tightly
to prevent freezing, an I III doing so to shut
out completely every opportunity for light
and air   to   oil tor.    This  soon produces a
damp ami mouldy condition, winch is not

Hut at last little Frik got leavo to have
tho cook put up some lunch for his journey.
Then he started for town to seo if he could
buy some clothes. Ho was very light of
heart, and us bo stepped merrily along he
kept putting Ida hind iu bis pocket from
time to time to make sure that his pennies
wore safe.
Aftor he had walkoda loug way be found
himself in a narrow valley that was completely shut iu hy high mountains. He fell
lo wondering what lay beyond tho lofty
heights, and how in the world he could
manage to cross them.
Thc path leading to the uplands was steep
aud rugged, and little Frik had not followed it very long before he grow weary. So
he sat down by thc wayside to rest, and in
order to white away tlm timo ho took his
pennies out of his pocket to have a good
look at thom. They wero so bright and
shining, ho thought ho had never seen anything quite so nice. All at. mice tin-re stood
before him a beggar, who was so tall and ao
gaunt and so forlorn-looking that littio Frik
screamed aloud iu fright,
" Don't ho aim id of me, my littio lid,

I want is a penny, for sweot. charity's
������ I have nnly three pennies," said tittle
Frik, "and I'm ou my way to town to get

"Then 1 shall have to help yon," said
little Frlk, handing tho beggar one of his
Quick asa flash tho man had disappeared,
and littio Frlktrudgod on once more. His
path was now even more stoop and rugged
than before, aud pretty soon ho was forced
to Bit down for another rest. Scarcely had
he done so than a dark shadow fell upon
bim, and raising his eyes, ho beheld another
beggar, who looked taller and more
gaunt and more forlorn than flic first ono.
Littio Frik was so frightened that bo throw
back bis head ami shrieked with all his
"Dontbo afraid of me, my hoy,"said the
beggar. "I won't hurt yaW All I want in

he told the same story the first beggar had

So ho put ono nf the pennies tnat were
left into the scrawny baud, and without
venturing tn look hack inovod further up
tho slope,
Ily and by be sat down for another rest,
and once moro a beggar appeared suddenly
before him. This one was so tall and so
gaunt and ao hideous Lo hohobl that if you
had ever seen bim It would send cold shiiib

Littio Fi Ik's eyes soomod almost to meet
the clouds before lhey rested on the man'
face. Throwing hack his bead and opening
wide his mouth, the poor little chap scut
forth shriek after shriek.
" Don't bo afraid of me, my little foi

you for the world, I'm only a poor beggar,
and all I want is a penny, forsweet charity's

"I'm bigger than ynu aro," said the beggar, "and there's lesa left of my clothes

that no one ean say ' No1 to me, whatever 1

" Mow that is not auch a poor wish,"
said tho stranger, and no sooner had the
words escaped his lips than bo had vanished
from sight.
Little Frik fell asleep by lhe waysidu
that night, thinking of bis Btrange adventure. When be woke next morning, after
many wild dreams, Ills wishes were all
granted, aud he reached the other Bide of
tbe mountain, healing with him his fiddle
aud tiis gun and bis newly gained power of

represents all the money sunk in it. The
total expenditure nf money on tho
anal down to tho time when tho liritish
Government bought the Khedive's shares,
amounted to a littio over IS millions, but
this sum did not by any means represent the total cost. The Khcdivo's original
concession granted extraordinary privileges
to thB canal company,including huge grant i
of land, water privileges, quarries, customs
;ltics, otc, Ono of thc conditions of the concession, also, was that the Khedive should
procure forced labor for the execution of
the work, and for a long period the number
of forced or unpaid laborers employed upon
the canal ranged from 25,000 to 30,000.
When Islunail Pacha succeeded to tbe Khe-
dlval throne, aud declined to ratify tho
valuable concessions granted by hiB predecessor, he had to pay the Canal Company no
less than CIO.000,000, by way of "smart
money " for the withdrawal of forced labor
and other privileges. None of this labor or
indemnity appears In the company's capital
account, and that is ono reason why the
company is able to pay such largo dividends.
There ean bo no question as to the success
of Lord Boaconsficld's financial coup.
Nevertheless, it is ono of a kind which wc

From the Leamington Post
Mr. Joseph Hohson, whose home ia on
the first concession of Morsoa township,
about a mile from Leamington, is known to
almost every resident of this section. For
years past, Mr. Uohson has heen a victim
of paralysis in Its worst form, and his ease
waa regarded as hopeless not only by himself and his friends but by tho doctors
who had attended him.
To one who knew Mr. Robson's pitiable
condition as we did, it was with no small
degree of surprise and pleasure lhat we recently saw him drive tnioiich town sitting
i|tnte eioet nn across board iu a lumber
Wagon, and controlling a lively team of
horses. I falling bim wo asked what miracle
had brniifthl about this changed condition,
ami askod If lie hul any objection io t'io
publication of thu fautS conuccleil   wilh his
case. Replying he said ho would Iniloed bo
a mean man if hu refused to let the public
know how his wonderful recovery hud been
brought about. Mr. It liison then told tlie
story of his illness and recovery about as
follows |-
''About ten yoars ago,while living in tho
stale of Ohio, 1 was taken down with au
attack of typhoid fever, ami for tliroo
inontha linn-- Utweon lilt- ami tK-aili In a
perfectly UliooilBOlous condition. Ilecover-

Honii.the result being that I WAS takendown
With a seven-eold. During tho first stages
of my trouble I was  able  to  move  about
with somo difficulty, but tbe disease
gradually fiiatouod its bold on mo and 1
found  one sense  after   another   becoming
paralysed.   At this time my proBpoots in
life wero by no means discouraging, 1
owned a luigniliceiit farm not far Irom
Toledo, on which wo had a comfortable
bome, and I owed not a dollar to any one.
I continued todootor with specialists and
exports from all pails of the Stales, ouch of j
whom promised to cure me of the disease,
which tbey said was paralysis, but in every
ease lhey left mc as bad and sometimes
worse than lhey found me   physically, an 1 i
certainly worso financially.   After suffering !
In this manner for two years my family i
concluded that a  change of   climate might, j
do me good, and so wo removed to Canada,
Bottling where wc now reside. This hope,
however, proved a delusion, and each year
found me worse and if possible added to my
misery. Life itself became a burden to ine
and 1 knew that I waa worse than nnoloas j
to my friends. I was unable to foul my-
self as my head and hands shook so that f
have frequently left stabs in my chin when
trying input iny fork to my mouth. It
was only occasionally that 1 could move
'around at all, and thon only with the aid
��� of crutches. 1 lost almost entire control of
my power  of speech ami got  so had  that
I inunihers of my own family oould not understand wli it I was cnying. My whole nervous Bystem seemed undermined, and I
abandoned all hopo of over again being ot
��� any use lo my family.    Lust fall I was iu-
; ducod io try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
from that dale my   condition   has steadily
: improved until tn.day I am able to take
my piano with other men ou the farm, and
while my hand shakes a trifle, I am able to
1 do a good day's wink every day in the week.
I 1 am now able to walk a considerable distance, and my nervous system seems folly
restored. Thero is not the slightest doubt
that the.-oresults aro entirely due to the use
' of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and 1 am oon-
tideut thai had I been able to procure tlr's
wonderful remedy when I  was firat taken
: with tho disease, I would never have boon
where I was.    The   absolute  truthfulness
of thataotBosI havo gl van them to you can .
ho verified hy hundreds of  my friends  and
neighbors, or by any member of my own
i As to much of the evidence contained iu
Mr. Kobson's statement the writer can
himself hear evidence. His speech, which
one year ago oould scarcely be understood,
is now perfectly distinct ; his head then
dropped on Ida chest, whereas now it is
held quite linn and orecl; then ho could J
not walk across a room without holding tn
a chair or table, while now he oan walk
without dilliculty.
We called upon Mr. W. J. Smith, druggist, and Interrogated him iu reference to i
the case. Mr. Smith said that he know of
Mr. Robinson's ailment and that he had
Buffered lor yeara us stated, and ho had no
doubt that itwas Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
that cured bim. "Pink Pills," said Mr.
Smith, "have a remarkable sale, which

Now, it happened that Yates, who hud
seen nothing of this silent struggle of the
eyes, being exceedingly hungry, was making
every preparation for the energetic beginning of the meal. He had spent most of his
life * in hotels und New York boarding-
houses, so thm it he ever knew the adage
" (irace before meals" he had forgotten it,
In tho midst of bis preparations camo the
devout Words, ami they camo upon him us
a stupefying surprise. Although naturally
a resourceful man, he wns nntquick enough
this time to cover his confusion. M ins
Burt let t\s golden bead was bowed, 'mt out
of tho corner of hcreyeshe saw Yates's look
of umuxod bewilderment and his sudden
halt of surprise. When nil heads were raised tho young girl's still rcm-uned where it
was, whilo her plump shoulders quivered.
Then she covered bor faeo with hor apron,
nnd the silvery ripple of a laugh eumo tiku
ii-"uoi In-red musical chime trickling through
her lingers.
" Why, Kttty I" cried her mother, in as
tonishment, "what ever is the matter with
you V
The girl could no longer restrain hor
"You'll have tn pour nut the tea, mother,"
she cud limed, as she lied from the room,
" Fur the hind's suke1" cried Ihu astonish-
od mother, rising to tuku bur frivolous
daughter's place, " what ails the child ! I
don't see what there is lo laugh at,"
Hiram scowled down the tablo, and was
evidently also of the opinion thnt lh
iccasinu to
u drop of liquor since I vo known them,
and���please God���they never will."
"Oh, Igutss it wouldn't hurt them," said
Yates, with a lack of tact that was not
habitual, He fell several dtgreeain the
estimation of his hostess,
" Hurt'em !" cried Mrs. Bartlett, indignantly. "I guess it Won't get a chance to.'
She turned tothe professor, who was a good
listener,���respectful and deferential, with
little to say for himself. .She rocked gently
j to and fro as she talked.
' Her husband sat unbendingly silent, iu a
sphinx-like attitude that gave no outward
indication of his mental uneasiness. He
vas thinking gloomily that it would bo
just bis luck to meet Mrs. Itartlott unexpectedly on tho streets of Fort Brie
on one of thoso rare occasions when
ho was enjoying tlio pleasures of sin
for a season. Hu had thu most pcs-simistio
forebodings of what the futuro might nave
iii store for him. .Sometimes when neighbors or customers treated often in the village ami he felt he hud taken all the whiskey
that cloves would oonceul, bo took a five-
cent cigar instead ol a drink, He did not
particularly ltko the smoking nf it, hut there
was a curtain dovll-tnay care recklessness in
lining down ibe street with ,i lighted oigar
111 his teeth, which hod all tho more fascination for him becauso of its manifest danger,
Ho felt at these timeB that ho was going the
pace, and that it iu woll our womon do not
know of all tho wickedness there i*�� in this
world. He did not fear that anv tiaig-1*-
miqht toll hia wife, for there   wore  depths
o which no person could convince  Mr
mirth.* The  professor was \ *i t'ir71 J, t ^ 'h *'' w .11^ 1 Vl" womyi" But hoUioughi
equally in lho dark,
" I am afraid, Mrs, Bartlett,'*said Yates,
" that I ant the inilOCOnt cause of Miss
Kitty's mirth. You see, mad a in,���it's a
pathetic thing tnsuy, but really I have bud no
home lifo. Although 1 attend church regularly, of course," ho added, wilh jaunty
mendacity, " 1 must confess that I havon't
heard graos at meals for yours and years,
and ���well, 1 wasn't just prepared for it. 1
have nn doubt I made an exhibition of myself   which  your daughter  wus quick to
" It wasn't very polite," said Mrs. Bartlett, with somo asperity,
" 1 know that," pleaded Sates, with contrition, " Bull assure you it was uninten
tionul on tny purl."
" Ble a the man !" cried his hostess. "I
don't B mean you. 1 moan Kitty.
But that girt never oould keep hor face
straight. She always favored me moro than
her father."
This statement was not dillloult to bo-
lie-'O, for Hiram, at that moment, looked
OS If ItO had never smiled in bis life, lie
sat silent throughout the meal, but Mrs.
Bartlett talked quite enough for two,
" Woll, for my part," alio said, " I don't
know what fnrmlng's coming to. Henry
Howard and Margaret drove past hero I Ins
afternoon as proud as Punch in their now
covered buggy.   Things is very diU'ereni
from whal they was when I was a girl.
Then a farmer's daughter had to work.
Now Margaret's took her diploma at the
Indies' college, and Arthur he's begun al
tbe University, and Henry's sporting round
iu a new buggy. They have a piano there,
with the organ moved out into the back
room "
"The whole Howard lot's a stuck-up sol,"
muttered the farmer.
Hut Mrs. Bartlett wouldn't have that.
Any detraction that was neonsEary she felt
competent in Biipply, without help irom tbo
nominal head of the llOUBO.
11 No, J don't ���*,, so far us to pay that.
Neither would you, lliruni, if ynu hadn't
lost yonr law-suit about tho lino foi.co ; and
served you right, too, for it wouldn't have
been begun if I had boon at home at the
time, Not but what Margaret's a good house
keeper, for sho wouldn't be her molhcr's
daughter if slu wasn't that, but it does
Boom in me a queer way to bring up farmers'
ohildren, and 1 only hope they can koep it
up. There wero uo pianos nor 1'reueh and
tienumi in my young days."
"You ought In hear her play! My lands!"
cried young Bartlett, who spoke for the
first timo. His admiration for her ao-
complishmont evidently went beyond bis
powers of expression.
Bartlett himself did not relish tlm turn
the conversation had taken, ami he looked
somewhat uneasily al the two young strangers. '1 ho professor's countenance was open
and frank, uml he was listening with respectful interest to Mrs,   Burtioti's talk.
Yates bent over hU plate with (lushed face,
and confined himself strictly to the business in hand,
"1 am glad," said the professor innocently to Yates, "that you mado tho young
lady's acquaintance, I must ask yon for an

[���'or onco in his life Yates had nothing to
-tny, hut he looked at his trieml with an expression that was not kindly, The latter,
in answer in Mrs. Bur Mutt's inquiries, tohl
how they had passed Miss Howard Oil the
road, and how Yates, with hia usual kindness of heart, had offered the young woman
the hospitalities of the hay-ruck, Two
persons at tho tablo were much relieved
when the talk turned to the tont, It WftB

tho boy. First, he was anxious to learn
what diabolical cause bad been at work lo
induce two apparently sane men tu give up
the comforts of homo ami live iu this exposed manner, if lhey were not compelled
to do so. Second, he desired lu lind nut
why people who bad the privilege ot living
in large oities camo of thoir own accord Into
the uninteresting country anyhow. Kven
ufler explanations were oH'ored the problem
seemed still beyond him.
After tbo meal tlu-y all adjourned to tlio
veranda, where ihe air was uool ami the
viowextensive. Mrs. Hartlctt would not

case to young Hiram.
*' No, no ; think you," gasped the boy,
aghast at the reckless audacity of tho proposal,
���'What's that.';" cried Mrs. Bartlett,
Although she was talking volubly to tho
professor, her maternal vigilance nevoi

Notlikely ! I'll say this formyhmband and
my boy, t hat, whatever else they may have

He pictured with a shudder meeting her

When this nightmare presented itself to him
he resolved never to touch a cigar again ;
but ho well kuew that the host resolutions
flido away when a nun ia excited with two

When Mrs. Bartlett resumed conversation
with tho professor, Yates looked up at
young Hiram and winked. Tho hoy Hushed witli pleasure under the comprehensiveness of that wink. It included him iu the
attractive halo of Crime that enveloped the
fascinating personality of the man from Now
York.   It soemed to Bay,���
" That's all right, hut wo are men of tho

Tlie tea dishi.-, having been cleared away,

lowly seat and Btrolled towards the Rate
with bis hands iu bis pockets. He remembered thut be had forgotten something, and
eudgolled bis brains tn make out what it
was. Ho guzod down the road at the
bouse of the Howards, which naturally
brought to biii recollection his mooting
with tho young girl on the road.
There was a pang of discomfiture in
tills thought, when he remembered thane-
COinplishmeuts attributed lo her by Mrs.
Bartlett, He recalled bis condescending
tone tn her, ami recollected his anxiety
about the jug. The jug ! That was what
he had forgot ton. He Hashed a i lance at
old Hiram, and noted that the  farmer was
lookingutlilm with something like reproach
iu his oyos. Yales moved his head almost
imperceptibly towards the barn, ami the
farmer's eyes dtopped tn tho lloor ol the
veranda. Tho young man nonchalantly
strolled past the cud of tho house.
" I guess I'll go to look after tin. horses,"
suid the farmer, rising.
"Here's looking at you," aaid Yates,
strolling into the ha:n, taking a telescopic
metal cup from his pocket and clinking ii
into receptive shape hy a jerk uf the hand.

Bartlett s lowering countenance indicated
resent mi: nt at the imputation, hut bo
neither affirmed nor denied. Yates strolled
out of the barn, while the farmer went
through a smalt door-way thnt led to the
stable. A moment later Ito heard Hiram
calling loudly to his sou to bring tho pails
to water the horses.
" Evidently preparing an alibi," said
Yates, smiling to himself, as he saunter* d
towards the gate.
Thoy wore all at breakfast when Yates
next morning entered the apartmont which
was at once dlningroom ana parlor.
"Waiting for yon,"said young Hiram,
humorously, that being one of a set of jokes
which suited various occasions. Yates took
his placo near Miss Kitty, who lookod ub

The prof-ssor did not defend himself, ntul
Mrs. Bartlett evidently took a large discount from all that Ytiles said. ISbe was a
shrewd woman.
After breakfast tbo men went out to tho
burn. The horses wore hitched to tho
wagon, which still contained tho tent.-ind

Tho young men took sparring attitudes,
Yates tried to do it gently at first, but,

should have uh perfect knowledge of the
kitchen and the proper methods of food

methods of compounding medical ugonts.
Of the two, the knowledge of diototics und
cookery, would, iu the writer's opinion, bo
round much more valuable than tho knowledge oi drugs. Both kinds of information
are important, but a thorough knowledge
of food '-.Hi-Is and thoir relation to the
needs uf the body must be of inestimably
greater value to the physician, than tho Information gained ny the most thorough
study of pharmacy and materia nteilieu.

school and experimental kitchen could be

every student bo required to lake a

The "Historical Records of tho 43d
Light Infantry," ilnn famous regiment
which played u most Important part ui Knglish warfare during lho last quarter of the
eighteenth oontury ami tho curly part of
the nineteenth, uontains a stirring incident
of prompt action which averted a tragedy.
Worn out with a hard march, the Brigade
under Captain Lloyd approached the convent at Bencvoiite, where tho cavalry and
reserve slill remained, hoping for shelter.
Tbey were disappointed. The convent
was occupied by several thousand infantry,
and the lower galleries were so densely
packed with tho horses of cavalry ami artillery that it was hardly possible for a man
to make hia way among t hem.
Two of the ollieers stood looking in at
tho dubious prospect through tho single
door that gave ingress and ogress. A sudden cry of alarm hurst from tho lips of one.
"Look tlioro 1" he cried, pointing over
tho backs of the homes.
