There is reported to h*?ve been, one
day recently, a bread famine on Denman
Islaud. It did not occur in the evening
after the labors of the day were over,
when it might have been borne, but at
the road side, in the witching hour of
noon, when the stomach craves so stoutly for the staff of life. A young man
from N. S��� helping with others, as a
neighborly office, an islander, (whose
family had been sick and requiring his
attention) out on a road contract, and be
ing in a state of unwilling unblessedness
that ts, being (without his fault) without
a wife to bake him a loaf of bread, and
therefore without any bread, followed his
eyes to a basket where a satisfying loaf
was peeping out as much aa to to say,
Why don't you come and take-, me?' Of
course he accepted the silent invitation
and in a jiffy it had disappeared down a
throat whose capacity for'hiding such
things hai often excitad the wonder and
envy of his friends. Tbe owner of the
(oaf, moved by an empty stomach and
uamindful of ihe other's single aud famishing condition, and thinking only of his
o-vn interior, cursed his ill-starred companion, and vigorously demanded his
bread. Then Ihe young man from N. S.
arose to the dignity of the occasion, and
straightening himself up to his full height
placed his left hand as a guard over his
stomach white his right assumed a belligerent position, and with flashing eyes
and a voice of thunder he exclaimed, "If
you want that loaf of bread, you will have
to fight for it."
A very pleasant gathering of the representative women of.Comox met m the
drawing room of Mrs. McPhee of Courtenay Thursday, Sept. 27th, where Mrs.
Spoffard, president ot the Urit. Col. W.
C. T. U. met with the ladies and organized them into a Union.
At the public meeting held in the
school on Monday evening previous.
Mrs. Spoffard explained fully the origin
and methods of work of this world-wide
organization, so that at the meeting the
ladies were ready and anxious to proceed
to organization, and to w<*rk.
The following officers were elected -
Mrs. K. Duncan, Pres.; Miss H. Barnes,
Vice. Pres.; Mrs. (Rev.) Tait, Sec'y;
Mrs. Robb, Treas.
The ladies have decided to hold their
meetings the vd Thursday in lhe momh
to meet in turn, in Sandwick, Courtenay,
and at the Hay. Tke first .name to be
enrolled on that of the membership list
was that old and much respected resident. Mrs. Robert Duncan, who has always been to the front in every good
work, boih before and since coming to
the distuct.
The W. C. T. U. does not confine itself to any one line ur method of work,
but through its forty departments, aims
to confront the traffic to which it is opposed, and these afford ample opportunity for the organization to prosecute its
work in every and any locality.
Thc departments, however, which the
newly organized union will probably begin working with���are��� Scientific Instruction in schools, Juvinilc work, Heredity, Hygiene, Literary, Press work and
Mothers' meetings.
Mrs. Suoffard did nnt succeed in dieting an organization at Union hut a very
successful meeting was heid in the Methodist church, at which Rev. Mr. Kobson
presided, ancl which was addressed by
Mrs. Spoffard and Kcv. Mr. Voung. At
the close ofthe meeting a number of ladies, 111 response to Mrs, Spoffard's appeal, signified their willingness to wear
thc white ribbon, as expressive of their
total abstinece principles and sympathy
with thc cause.

What more was necessary for journalists
who survey tho world through vory thick

towards England in the Fatherland,
There is on tho contrary a very good

live in England, and there follow out commercial and professional pursuits with great
credit to themselves and-amidst the -zood

German names in a Loudon directory ia a
surprising fealuro. In almoit every large
town they share ia the commercial race for
wealth. A communication is thus kopt up
between Britain aud Germany of a uncial
kind apart from business relations, whioh

the Germans are a solid sort of substantial puoplu who commend themselves to

The German Emperor has been behaving
rather well lately, and the Britishers are
disposed to be pleased with him. Some
narrow-minded people suppose that he
canuot be pleasant to France without Betting John Bull's back up. But British
people feel no irritability againBt France.
This was one of the things that surprised
that observer of human life, M. Zola, He
candidly confessod that he did not expect
to find, on his visit the other day, the good
feeling towards the French peoplo that was
everywhere evident. Why then should
misunderstanding follow on kind offices
between the German Emperor and the
French nation ? The weil chosen and evidently heartfelt words in which the Kaiser
expressed his sorrow and condolence with
the French Republic upon tho occasion of
the murder of President Carnot were nowhere more appreciated than in England,
nor was the kindly tact with which he
released the two French prisoners on the
occasion anywhere more admired. Perhaps
in no other country, too, waa his call ou
the widow of Chiselhurat better understood.
His visit to the mother of the dead Prince

adequate basis for this figment of German

London Judy overheard a conversation in
which a waiter said that ho was offered a
fine place in Paris on condition that he learn
French. Tho explanation was that the
native-born waiters could not understand
French ns spoken by the gaests from London. This is amusing. How much it
signifies depends on the individual. To
earn tospeak French tolerably well requires
ong time, or much practice under a competent instructor. Nob one in ten will have
uso enough ot the language in speaking to
keep familiar with it. Quite other is it in
tho matter of reading. All of thc ten who
have **{oiie far enough to read easy French
at sight, might better keop on reading a
little all along after school days, for enjoyment and culture. Others of them who
are thinking of any pursuit in which French
authorities are important will find it
desirable at times to consult them, and
they aro not always to bo had in English
version. Many who havo thought themselves well up in French and German, after
completing the usual college courses, have
fouud themselves at serious disadvantage
when undertaking graduate' work in the
moro advanced universities. One oan seo
how Hub in in any department or section
that is largely indebted to the brains of
Franco and Germany. Talk as we may of
our own language and of its growing influeno
abroad, evory soul of this time and of the
next fifty yeara will discover that five or
six modern languages belong to a liberal
outfit for the student world and the man of

many who cannot have school tuitioning,
there is tho opportunity of private study.
The farmer's son or daughter may do very
well without going off to academy or college, when such going is not within their
means. Private study, with no assistance
beyoud tho few hooks they had, was sullicient to bring forward some of the most

Transparent Bricks.
A uow departure has been made in
France in the employment of glass bricks
for building purposes, Tho bricks aru
hollow, being blown like bottles, and aro
given thu shape that is most readily laid,
cubic, hexagonal or otherwise, iu the
particular stylo of building for which they
aro intended. Thoy aro made securo by
the use of a biluminous cement, with a
base of asphalt. A singular feature of these
bricks is lhat they do away with the necessity of windows, They aro good insulators
of humidity and noise, giving protection
against both cold and boat, and by thu
modification of their form and color they
can ho mado to harmonize readily with the
decorations of any building. They aro
used largely in meat mnrkets in preference
to marblo, and they are found specially
adapted for bath halls, hothouses,
hoBpitals,rofrigerating ostablishiiKntR, and,
in fact, all buildings in which the absence
of windows would Ihi an advantage.

Idea of the Fitness ol Tilings.
The reoent distinguished foreign visitors
to Windsor were greatly struck by the
magnificence ofthe royal plate at the
castle. Even the Czarowitz, accustomed to
the almost barbaric splendor of the court
functions in his native land, was fain to
admit that for solid worth he had never
Been the equal of tho Englfab plate, says
London Sketch.
The royal plate at Windsor is generally
reckoned to be worth ahout ��2,000,000,
and it is no unuaual thing at a state ban*
quot at the castle to have plate to the
value of half a million in the room. There
are two state dinner services���one of gold
and one of silver. The mold service was
purchased by George IV and will dine 120
persons. The plates alone of thiB service
cost over ��12,000. On stato occasions there
are usually placed on the dining tabla
same very beautiful Hapons, captured from
the Spanish Armada, which are of course
of priceless value, while the groat ailver
wine cooler, made by KundcllA Bridge for
George IV and weighing 7,000 ounces,
always adorns one corner of tho apartment.
As sideboard ornaments, thero are pretty
trifles in the way of a peacock of precious
stones, valued at ��.10,00(1, and a tiger's
head from India, with a Bolid ingot of gold
for its tongue and diamond teeth.
Thia wonderful collection of plate is
crown property, which practically means
that it belongs to tho   country,   and   the
Queen has separate collections fur use at
lialtiiiir.il and at Osborne, whicli belong
to herself.
Sad Story of an Admiral's Son
A despatch from Indianapolis, says: The
scion of a proud Mnglish family is now nn
inmate in tho Marion County l'oorhouso
west of this city This is the story of
Albert llowden, son ofa liritish commodore.
In conversation villi a reporter Uowden
said that he camo hero a year ago trying to
tiud employment, and, failing in that he
becamo sick and was taken to the City
Hospital. After recovering lie got employ-
ment for a short time as bookkeeper.
All the work ho could lind to do, being
minus both feet as tho result, nf exposure
in Columbus, Ohio, was scrubbing out
liquor stores. Ho says he is fifty-three
years cf age.
"I graduated at Goaport Naval School,"
he said. "At twenty one I had a fortune
and was manager of a hank in a small town
in Western Kngland, and atone time was
elected Mayor. I was personally accjbaint-
ed with Charles Dickens and bolonged to
a debating Booioty of which ho was a member, I have boen introduced at Court and
have met the Prince of Wales. Hy an unlucky speculation I loat tho bulk of my
fortune and have been ({fling down ever
since. I went first to France, drifted to
America and in New Vork I got down to
peddling jewellery on tht slrcots. What
privation started, drink completed, and
here I am."

The HaUwar Magnate took* for au  Improvement In Trade.
Speaking of tbe reduction of nearly oue
million dollars in the net profits of the
C.   P.   R.   for the psat six  months, Mr,
Shaughnesay, tho Vice- President, said the
other day, that while trade in Canada was
affected by the depression in the States,
there ia another reason for the great decrease in their receipts. Kvery transatlantic road must suffer when the staple product of the country touches a low point.
The prosperity of tho C. P. R. is largely
determined by the prosperity of the farmers
along the line of route in the North-West,
We have to carry, he said, the produot of
the country out at rates which the farmer
thinks high, but which in reality do not
pay us at all. It is not what we bring out,
but what we carry iu, that pays. Now, if
the farmer oan get only 40 cents for hia
wheat inatead of 65, it follows that he Ib
unable to bring muoh in, and this ia where
we experience the falling off. This wiil apply
to any other produot as woll as wheat. Wherever it be, the transatlantic line haa long
haulages and small rates, but counts upnn
a profit on tbe goods which will be brought
iu by thu farmers in return for the price of
their produot. Tho policy of retrenchment
has applied to travelling us well aa buying.
Whon tho depression ia acute it makes itself folt in tho minute things of trade and
social life aB well as in tho large concerns
in which tho millions are involved.
Wo ourselves havo roduced our stock and
material to thc lowest point,and this policy
haa been felt alike in the warehouse and the
home. Hut we are moro happily circumstanced than many of the American roada
who have Buffered frnm the depression, in
that, when a revival of trade does como,
our present stall, which lias to be maintain*
ed ail along the line to work tho system,
will be able to cope with it, whereas thoy
have greatly to increase their expenses. I
think we have reached the lowest point. I
am hopeful of a revival now that the tariff
question is settled and the manufacturing
and other interests havo the stimulus of
certitude to renew their operations. It
will not do to predict, but I think we may
expect an improvement.
Professor Pol bear says electricity possesses no virtue as such fcr the cure of dia*

The aerial space within the limit of our
vision ia calculated to have a diameter of
420,000,000 miles, and a circumference of
1,329,742.000,000 miles. And this is only
a fragment of tho immensity of space.
Late explorations have extended the

Curious Properties of Glycerine.
One of the great advantages of glycerine
in its chemical employment is the faot that
it neither freezes nor evaporates under any
ordinary temperature. No perceptible loss
by evaporation has been detected at a
temperature less than 200 degreea F., but
if heated intensely It decomposes with a
smell that few persons find themselves able
to endure. Jt burns with a pale flame,
similar to that from alcohol, if healed to
about 1100 decreet, and thnn ignited. Its
non*evaporativo qualities make lhe compound of much use as a vehicle for holding
pigments and colore, ai in stamping and
typewriter ribbons, curbon papers and tho
If the pure glycerine be exposed for a
Jnng time to a freezing temperature, it
crystallizes with the appearance of sugar
candy, but these crystals being once molted
tt is almost an impossibility to get them
again into tho congealed Btate. If a littio
water be added to the glycerine no crystallization will tako place, though under a
siiiiiiciout degree of cold the water will
separate and form crystals, amid which thu
glycerine will remain in its natural state
of fluidity. If suddenly subjected to intense cold, pure glycerine will form a gummy mass which cannot bo entirely hardened or ci yslallized. Altogether it isquite
a peculiar subitanco.

Ai Ethel had predicted, within a very
few seconds Prince Balanikoff waa at the
door of our box, looking for permission to
oome, ai a nun matter of form, before lifting the latch.
Of course, I bowed graciously, and mentioned to him to enter ; and equally, of
course, he wu Id a moment at iny aide.
*��� I hardly expected, Lady Craven," the
Prince uid, "to find you and Mn. For
twcue ia Paris ; and I certainly never
dreamed of finding you here of all places In
thie moet charming of cities."
Prinoe Balanikoff, I need acarcely say,
came to breakfast, aud did nothing but
talk about England, and declare that he
had half a mind to live there. The more
he saw of the English, the better he got
to understand them and to like them. It
wai a mistake into which foreigners only
too euily fell, to assume roughly that the
Knglish were all churlish, and difficult to
get on with. It Is nothing of the sort. All
that you needed to do, wu to take them in
the right way, whioh meant of course, to
flatter their vanity and play upon their
foibles, and they were the easiest people tQ
manage In the world. That the men wer
brave no one had ever doubted, although
they labored under the delusion that
bravery wu a virtue of which the Anglo-
Saxon race had a monopoly. Before the
Crimean war, they were under the delusion
that Russians eould not fight. They had
actually forgotten how Napoleon himself
found the Russian rank and file more than
a match for hli ptoked battalions.
The Prinoe wu a Russian, and no doubt
"spoke fine ," nr, to be more exact wu a
molt abominable liar. But that he had
made money, or had, at all events, some*
how got the control and command of it,
wm beyond all question; and it was money-
after all, or, rather, what money could
give me that wu the only thing now left
for me In a world, the rule) of whioh, like
the laws of the Medes and Persians, alter
But there was one good Influence that
kept me baok, when f might otherwise
have been weak enough to give way. It
wu the memory of George Sabine, with
whom, u with a touchstone, it had long
been my habit to test in my own mind every
man across whom I came.
How little the world, as it calls itself,
knows of the truth I the very man to whom,
ifthe world was to be believed, I owed my
ruin, was the oue the mere memory of
whom kept ine from evil, against whioh I
might otherwise have been weak aud powerless.
Before very long tho inevitable, exactly
u I had foreseen it, actually falsified the
reputation it hu of late years acquired,oiid
oame to pass most naturally.
Thi Prinoe began-to say that he feared
he wu like all hii countrymen, little better
than an immense schoolboy (at this period
Ethel, with a deprecatory murmur, was
wicked enough to leave the room); that it
wu idle to attempt to conceal the fact from
himself, and that ha was mre he could not
possibly hope for a moment to conceal it
from me. He knew perfectly well that he
wm risking my very gravest displeasure,
and risking it most unwarrantably. I
ahould be most entirely justified if I
were to forbid him ever to speak to
me again; but be could only throw htm*
aelf upon my mercy, He never wished
again to set foot in Russia. Out of that
country he could defy the Czar himself.
His Imperial Majesty would utter terrible
threats, no doubt, but threatened men lead
proverbially long lives and he had for himself no reuon to fear that he should form any
exceptiou whatever to this most pleasant
and wholesome rule���a rule of which all
despots are perfectly welt aware, and upon
which they habitually acted. Whatever
articulate expression the anger of the Czar
might take, he had long ago made up his
mind to leave the couutry, and iu fact, had
made all bia preparations for doing so. He
would be safer perhaps lu the United States
than anywhere else, for although the relations between Washington and the Imperial
Chaucellerie were very cordial, the United
States had almost most sternly refused to
regard political offences m matters of ex*
For himself, however, he did not care
where he went, and would leave the choice
entirely to me. All he had to do wu to
beg me to reconsider my decision. And
then he fairly, and without the least dissimulation, lost all control over himself,
and urged his affection with a vehemence
that almoat terrified me by ita obvious and
painful lincerity.
Here, at all events, there was no acting
nr pretence. The man was savagely in
earnest, and his wild aud ungovernable
temper wu something more than dangerous, It wu absolutely terrible.
I did all that I could to quiet him, and,
to put the matter u bluntly as possible,
to get rid of him. I told him with all the
plainness that truth hu, when you can
bring yourself to speak it out courageously,
that I had really loved but one man in my
life, and should most certainly never love
another; addiug, with scarcely equal veracity, that I meant to treasure that man's
memory, and to livo faithfully as his widow
until the day of my death ; that I had
���owed as muoh and dare not break my vow;
!aat if I did, the vengeance of Heaven
would most oertainly overtake ma ; and
then, having no other arguments left that
occurred to me ai at all likely to be ofany
avail with him, burst into a passion of tears,
which were as genuine as any I had ever
���hed, and begged him to show alittlo mercy
and leave me at once.
" You wield an authority," he uid,
"more potent over mo thau that of his
Imperial Majesty himielf. If I disobey
him he oan kill me, and were ho to set him*
���elf to work about the task m anything like
earnest would no doubt succeed in it. Well,
you oan only kill a man ouco. 1 have seen
men ihot. I once saw a wretch of a Pole
knouted to death.   It was not exactly a
fleasant light; but it was interesting, and
admired his couragn. To uso your English ideas, he died game. I think���in fact
I am lure���I could do the samo myself. But
you are condemning me even to a death
in life far more terrible than auy
death,more terrible and more hopolcss thun
even the deepest and darkest Siberia mines
in whioh we leave our worst malefactors to
rot. I hardly deserve tint of you, nor is it
merciful or like yourself. And yot I cannot see what 1 am to do or to aay, I suppose I must accept my fate. My life has
uever been a bright or a very happy ono.
1 must livo it out for as long as the gods
may please, and must endeavor when I
feel most miserable to think of ymi.''
He bowed and looked at me. 1 held out
my hand, and, with all hit own native tact,
he grasped It and shook it heartily, bnt
tenderly, in the truest and simplest Knglish
fuhion, and so went his way.
For the very soul of me I was aorry for
the man. And yet I could not see at that
moment, at any rate, how I could possibly
have acted otherwise cr havo said or left
unsaid a single word.
I stayed in Paris for a few days longer,
out of mere indolence, Ihero aro certain
plaeei in the world whioh tempt you to
remain in them. The effort to leave them
ii as great u that required on a oold frosty
morning to virtuously jump out of your
comfortable bed and plunge into cold
For  my own part I cannot believe that
Providence intended the world to be unhappy for us. And here let me briefly give
my own idea of what the world ought to be.
It is the world of which George Sabine
���poke to me. It is a world within euy
reach of London. It is a world where
nobody gives you any worry or bother, and
where you on your own part are equally
cautious and discreet. There ia no post-
office, there are no daily papers, there are
uo fashions, there are no lions to expect to
be feted, there is no Opera-house, there ia
no circulating library. But, for benefit
of men, who are always selfish, there are
clubs and music-halls. These are frequented by the men atone. No woman ahall
willingly stay in them for a minute, or visit
them a second time.
I continued to think of this world vaguely and indefinitely.
Kthel wu delighted at the mere idea of
a change. A genuine English oountry
house, like that of tho Fox a, opened up
unknown possibilities to her. I need
acarcely say that I knew the English
couutry house only too well. There are
the hot-houses, the kitchen garden, the
���tables, and, perhapa, the home farm.
Country houses resemble eaoh other u do
mountain peaks, or millstones, or telegraph
posts, or daisies on the lawn which ia spread
iu their front. How ridiculous it ia in
theu days to talk of going into the country
for a change I A railway takes you to the
summit of tho Itighi, and you are offered a
brandy and soda. You reach lhe apex of
the Great Pyramid, having boen hoisted up
by attendant Arabs, and you find Bass'
bottled ale, with a red pyramid on the
label, Waiting's pork pies, and Blandy's
At the beginning of October we found
ourselves at The Uplands. It wu one of
those English oountry houaea for which a
Parisian banker would give at any minute
a dozen chateaux. It wu an old ugly build*
ing, to which atory after story, room after
room, and wins after wing had been added,
with no regard whatever to the inexorable
requirements of architecture,but simply according to the immediate necessities of the
Behind the houae itself plantations of
Norway pine stretched up to the turnpike
road. From the front of the houae down
to the river ran a wilderness of lawn, with
red geranium and gaudy heliotrope. Then
a oarpet of turf, u smooth u a billiard-
table, brought you to the river'e edge,
where there were boats and punts, and
where under the shelter of her own houae
lay the little steam launch,which wu alwaya
ready to start, and to make any number of
milea in the hour. And from the bank, if
you were ao disposed,you could catch peroh,
or gudgeon, or eels, to your heart'icontent;
while in the big eddies lay antediluvian
trout, proof againat any snare, and contemptuous of their riparian   owners.
We were welcomed with the utmost
cordiality. Whatever London may be
there ia, at all events, little constraint in
an English country house withiu the London radius. Ethel and 1 were at home at
The men staying at The Uplands were
ileasant enough. With thewomen I somehow could not get on. Perhaps there were,
faults on both aides���the faults being mainly
1'ealousy and suspicion on their side. For

wu concerned, that I wu entirely imi**ccnt

lhey were annoyed by a number of
things; by my manner, whioh was certainly
not theirs; by my toilette, which certainly
differs from theirs; by my self-possession
and reticence, and unwillingness to be
pumped or to join in idle gossip for its own
sake. We had, to sum up the position,
no common interests. And I may fairly
say, and without any couceit, that I felt
myaelf very much like the ugly duckling
in the wonderful itory of Hana Anderson.
The people in the houae were to use the
ordinary phrase, mixed,
" How do you like Cowes, Mr. Snip T"
nnce uked a prince of the Blood Royal of
a most eminent Saokville Street tailor.
Very well, your Royal Highness," was
the anawer; " bat I find the company a
little mixed."
Bless my soul, Mr. Snip 1" the Prince
answered, "didyou comedown here and
expect to find us all tailors T"
Well, the society at The Uplands woa.no
doubt a little mixed, but it did not entirely
consist of City people. On the contrary,
it waB almost as varied as are the hues in a
There are two kinds of rich men. Some
have immense wealth, but not much ready
money. Others have moderate wealth,and,
within reasonable limita, any amount of
ready money. These are the men, who are
able at any moment to write a oheok in four
flgurei without much anxiety, although a
war, or an unexpected turu of the markets
may ruin them, and sometimes does. But,
u a rule, they are very seldom so ruined,
and, upon the whole, have a happy time of
it. Dividends and coupons are far more
euily to be collected than ia rent. And
these two kinds of men were well represented at The Uplands.
The lawn wu nearly full, I can only
pick the prominent guests. There wu a
London Rector, with hia wife and eldest
daughter. Hii parish wu in the City, and
be had only ten parishioners. He drew two
thousand a year, paid two hundred to a
curate, wu Chaplain to four or five City
companies.aml preached at Whitehall upon
occasion*. But he wu a good mau, charitable to a fault, and thoroughly sincere.
There was a West-end dootor with an
enormous practice. Hia specialty wu
latent consumption. You might not have
got consumption at preaent, but he could
stake hii professional reputation that you
would be an incurable victim to it within
six montha unless you took hli advice���his
advice being, that you ahould go to Men-
tone, atop there aa long u you liked, and
see him agaiu upon your return.
There wu the editor of the Comet, a
weekly six-penny paper to which all the
taleuts contributed, and which crowed eich
Saturday as loudly as the cook in Noah's
Ark would have done, if that patriarch had
been weak enough to allow the bird to perch
itself upon the roof for that express purpose.
There wu alao Lord Robert Fits*-Henry,
third brother of the Duke of Berkshire,
with a large Income which he entirely de*
voted to yachting, never setting foot on
ahore except tor a change. He had taken
liia aorew-steamor, thu Miranda, to Hpitz-
bergen and to Cape Horn, to the Straits
of Suudo, ami to tho Bay of Sail Francisco.
He was unmarried ; preternatural ly tall ;
bony and muscular; intensely ugly, aud
with all the generosity and dash of a sailor
just paid off,
Laat amongst the company waa Lord
Asliwell, heir presumptive to the Earldom
of Cambridge. He wm a mild young man,
witb more promise in him at preaent than
reality; but of promise there was abundance. A trainer would probably havo described him as a leggy colt. Leggy colts,
however, are apt to develop into dark and
dangeroub horsea. I became somehow interested in Lord Aahwell and took notice
of liim.
He waa close upon six foet and large
limbed. Moat women would have called
him awkward and uncouth. Ho had a pink
faoe, red lips, a downy moustache,  eyes of
fray blue, and a mop of crisp yellow curls.
Ie blushed when you apoke to him. He
never aeemed to know exaotly what to do
with hia hands, and his powers of conversation were moat distinctly limited. He was
about four-and-twenty. If you had dressed
him in a slouch hat, a smock frock, corduroys and ankle-jacks, it would have been
impossible to take him for anything but an
agricultural laborer, until he had opened
hia mouth. Then you would have found
that you were dealing with an English
gentleman, somewhat diffident, but more
than usually accomplished, and well read.
Somehow or other I took a fancy to this
voung man. He wuin no way whatever
like George Sabine,   There wu not one
point in common between the two. And yet
t* either would have compared disadvantage*
ouBly with the other, and I um aure that
if they had met by uny accident, they would
have proved firm frieuds.
It ia a fallacy to suppose that men of the
right sort must needs resemble each other,
as closely as do peas or potatoes, or, for the
matter of that, pearls. The merit of a man
is hia individuality. The more he ia unlike
other men the better, u a rule, will it be
worth your while to cultivate him.
About itupid people and wicked people
there ia a very dreary monotony. Rogues
are eo like each other that a detective with
any experience oan single out a pickpocket
in the aiidstof crowd.
The German   Emprror   in    a   UasklUK
Brllltk lialforin.
On his arrival at Cowei the other day,
the German Emperor appeared for the first
time iu the uniform of the First Royal
British Dragoons, of which ho wu recently
mode honorary colonel. The change from
the sombre and dignified Prussian uniform,
iu which there are few colors but blue and
black, to the rather gaudy apparel of a
dashing cavalry officer, made quite a new
man out of the little Kaiser. The jaunty
cap, tipped on oue aide, ut off his rather
piquant face to much advantage. The
gayly braided jacket, with its tall collar
brilliant with gold lace ; the long, straight
epaulettes, the band wound round with
colored ribbons, representing the many
orders or decorations, as is the custom in
the Britiah army, all made him quite a
different person, and the officer! were muoh
amuflod at the accuracy with which he
practised the "goose step,"
The young Kmperor haa almoat as many
foreign uniforms as hia old grandfather
possessed. In old Wilhelm'a day one whole
room in the Berlin palace wu devoted to
these gaudy trappings, and whenever the
Emperor had a foreign guest to entertain,
some of these numeroua uniforms had to
come down aud he dusted and got ready, so
that two servants were attached to this
part of the Imperial wardrobe.
The young Kaiser has half a dozen valets
who are constantly attending to hia dress.
He ia very particular about the cut of his
clothes, but at home ia simple enough in
the matter of color and material. Not t
great while ago he adopted the long gray
riding overcoat whioh wusuch an inseparable part of Napoleon 1,'s wardrobe. Perhaps he thinks it gives him a Napoleonic

Won't Work In Politics.
The voluntary principle, which works
well enough in religion, does not aeem to
succeed in politics. The labor members in
the Britiah Houae of Commons are paid by
the contribution! of their constituents or
of the trades unions with which they are
connected. Mr. Joseph Arch, M.P., the
leader of the agitation among the Norfolk
agricultural laborers, complaint that he ia
being starved out, The laborer! now get
$15 a month, and with that they are satisfied, so they think it better to keep in their
own pocketa the fivo centa a week necessary
to keep Mr. Arch in the House of Commons.
" Poor craven milk-and-water fellows,"
Mr. Arch called them to their faces, and as
he had been nine weeka without wagea he
had aome excuse for using atrong language.
But whether the supplies are stopped or
not, Mr. Arch intends to go back to the
Houae ef Common!, hoping, perhapa, that
in a year or two Sir William Harcourt will
provide for his want!. When then-embers
of the British House of Commons get an
indenmity,therewillbe more Joseph Arches
in Parliament, and we shall seeaome strange

The Empress of Austria was the other
day making an excursion in the neighborhood of Campiglio, where she is at proseut
staying, and called at a farm house, where
all the Inmates were in festal attire, but
appeared in a rather melancholy turn of
mind. Her majesty perceived this, aaked
the reason and wu told that a baby born
three daya bofore waa to be christened that
day, but the godmother had not oome, for
which reaaon the ceremony could not take
place. The empress then declared that ahe
would take the place of the godmother,
and when the poor people, who did not
kuow the empress, asked the name they
must give their little girl ahe replied :
" My name ia nob much used in thia country;
it ia better, then, to give the child the most
beautiful name which Christendom knows
���that of Mary." It waa only on the following day, when a servant brought a
handsome preaent in money and an entire
outfit for the babe, that they knew that

I happened to be iu St. Petersburg four
yeara ago wheu Mrs. Strutton, the Czar's
English nurse, died in the Winter Palace,
writes a correspondent. It wu a gloomy
day, with thia, moist mow dropping down
from the blotched sky, and every now and
then a swirl of biting wind blowing up the
frozen Neva.
For weeki I had been Marching night
and day through Rus-ua for Information
bearing upon the persecution of the Jewa,
and my atepa hod taken me into the very
heart of the great empire. But wherever I
went the figure of the Czarwaa always present
in my mind m I aaw him riding with his
cuirasaiera���glittering from head to foot���a
smiling arrogant giant, itriding his ponder*
oua blaok charger with a graceful cue not
to be lookod for in a man so massive.
That wu the only time 1 had seen the Czar
with a military escort���for he usually drives
through the streets of his capi al unaccompanied, aavo by on aide-de-camp���but
the sight was enough to fix him iu my
memory u the incarnation of brute force,
splendid and terrible.
On the day I speak of a messenger rode
to the Anitchkoff Palace, on the Nevikl
Prospect, to tell tht- Czar' that hii uurM
wm dead; and on hii way he had to ride
over the very spot where the last Czar waa
uauaiuated. Alexander III. ia not a
sentimental man. He inherited none of hii
father1! sensitive qualities*. But the love he
had for his nurae surpoued everything ehw
in hia nature, '* Kitty" he called ber. She
wis his second mother, hli guardian spirit.
His sluggish heart went ont to her aud hli
face alwayi brightened at the sound of her
Aad she was dead. The Czar hurried
through the storm to the Winter Palace
and went to the darkened room where the
women had laid her body draped for the
grave. He threw himself on hii knees and
went on her cold bosom. The attendant!
stole from the room and left him alone
with hli grief. Then ho carried her body
tenderly and laid her in her coffin, arranging the floweri about her head, folding her
hands on her breaat and kiuing the white
face. For a long time he stayed in the
room, watching and praying. When he
came out of the hushed chamber there was
a look in hia face that no one had ever
seen there before.
She had alwaya been like a mother to
him and he had always been like a son to
her. lu the old daya, when his elder brother wu living, Alexander wu always her
favorite, and the awkward, neglected boy
responded to her touch. His brother wu
heir to the throne, aad Alexander received
little attention. He waa limply trained as
a soldier, bo that In time he might com*
maud the Imperial Guard.
While hii favored brother was preparing
himself to reign Alexander wm learning to
love soldiery. Physically he wu a giant,
taller and stronger than any of hia fellowa.
Hla dull, heavy mind adapted itaelf naturally to his environment. He wu a bora
soldier, sullen overbearing, and without
fear. Nature had cut him in a heroio
mould. He knew how to obey and did
not need to be taught how to command.
Hie rough temper and heavy hand inspired
To hie nurse he wu alwayi Saraha���the
affectionate diminutive of Alexander-
end to the day of her death she called him
by that pet name. Yean after, when he
came home from the war with Turkey, a
successf ul general fluahed with victory, he
auught out Mra. Strutton firat of all, and,
throwing hia anna around the pale Englishwoman who had mothered hii early yeara,
he kissed her and looked down into her
beaming face,
"What do you think of me now, Kitty ?'
he cried.   "Are you ashamed of me T"
'���'Vou are a brave soldier and a good ion
of your father, God be praised!" she said.
"I am proud of you, Saraha. You bave
covered yourself with honor,"
The burly soldier lifted hii nurae off her
feet and gave her a hug that she often
apoke about, for Alexander was even then
tho atrongest man in the Russian Empire,
and his hug was no joke. Not long ago the
Czar rolled up a silver plate with his nands
in the presence of the present German
Emperor, who had asked him to display
hia strength.
On that other day, when they brought
the news that hia father wu slain, Alexander went to hii nurae and laid hli head

Aa I sat there looking out upou the
dreary waste of enow between the shores
of tbe Neva and listening to the story of
the Czar and hii mine, I noticed that the
people were hurriedly gathering along the
edges of the atreet below, u though a procession were expected. A red Cossack
galloped put the house.his orimson mantle
streaming out behind him and a silver
scabbard dancing at hii waist. His dark,
Oriental face wu alive with excitement,
and he shouted an order to a policeman
who came running out from the crowd. Policemen began to swarm along the atreet.
Even the tawny Laps abandoned their
reindeer and oame swiftly with mocculned
feet towardi the quay. I wu just about
to rise wheu the chasseur of the legation
���gorgeous in gold lace and plumes���darted
into the room and saluted the ambassador.
"Your Excellency," he cried, "the Czar
is coming along the quay on foot behind the
Then turning to me :
"Now you can go and see for yourself if
the Czar can go among the people or uot."
In a few minutea I stood In the crowd
on the quay and aaw the solemn cortege
pass slowly before me. First came the
Greek priest and the crucifix ; after him
several black-robed men carrying lighted
lamps on poles. Then came tbe hearse.
Behind it strode Alexander III. and hia two
brothera through the sodden Blush, while
the crowd made the sign of the cross. A
few knelt down in the Eastern fuhion and
touched the snow with their foreheads.
The Czar towered above hfs brothers, his
gray coat buttoned closely about hii huge
form and his heavy cloak flapping, Hii
head was protected from the falling anow
by a turban of gray astrakhan wool and
apura jingled on his great boots. The three
mourners walked aide by side. They had
carried the coffin out of the palace with
their own hands. The Czar's face was very
pale, His eyesshowed thathehad been weeping. As he walked after the hearse his gaze
waa bent upon the ground. Onco or twice he
seemed to stumble. I stood within ten feet
of him and could aee that he waa profoundly stirred. Behind the Czar walked a group
of Mrs. Strutton'a personal friends and
among them���ao some one told me���several
ladies of the imperial family. After them
came a line of carriage- with the grand
ducal livery, but they were all empty;
thoir owners were on foot. A few cavalry*
men closed up tho procession. Not a note
of pomp disturbed the simple pathos of the
scene The Czar wai simply a man walking
humbly and reverently after the corpse of
the woman who loved him. A single bell
tolled somewhere in the distance and the
���ouud came faintly through the white
drizzle. My istvoitchick knelt in the-iucw
and began to pray, A hoarse, murmur rau
from mouth lo mouth: "Tho Emperor !"
"It ii he!" "Saraha!" But the C'/.ir
looked neither to the right nor the left.
The blurred heavena grew darker and the
���now lifted over the plumed hearse. Ab
the win l whipped around I could hear the
chanting of the priest.
It wu a long distance to the cemetery,
but the Czar walked every foot of the way.
He sat in a pew of th-> Church of England
for the first time and made all the responses.
I aaw him again just before he entered the
cemetery, hii great face wet with tears
and hli head bowed. While they were
lowering the coffin into a frozen gap in the
ground the gatekeeper of the cemetery
spread a piece of carpet ���the onlv article
of luxury ia his house���at the feet of the
Czar, who sank upon hii kneea and bowed
hii head in prayer.
A Famous Hedlieval Asss-rlatio* af Murderers thai was Mlamped Owl wilh
There ia nothing new under tbe sun, and
even those recent deplorable experiences,
which seem at first light unique products
of nineteenth century condition!, have
their analogue! in the past. It oannot
have escaped notice that there is a curious
likeness between the anarchistic manslay-
en of to-day and a famous medieval
Msociation which Bought to acquire power
and influence through the terrorism caused
by concerted and repeated homicidal attacks upon the representatives of the established political, religioui and locial order.
We refer to the not of the Assassins, who
maintained themselvei in weitern Alia for
about a hundred and fifty yean, and who
resembled the modern Anarchist! iu several
essential particulars, to wit, the repudiation
of religion and morality, the malign completeness of their own organization, aad
their fanatical devotion to the interests of
their secret aoclety and the orden of ita
chiefs. It ii alio worthy of remark that
were only stamped out with difficulty by
the combined and desperate effort! of two
great military powers. This secret society,
whose memberi may be described m the
medieval and Oriental counterparts of the
Anarchists, wm founded by Hasaan-ben-
Sabbah, a native of Khoraaaan, who in A.
I), 1090 gained possession by atra-tegem
of the atrong mountain fortress of Alamut
���a Persia. Hii followen became known ag
Assassins, either with reference to the
fint name of their chief, or, more probably,
in allusion to tbe hashish, an opiate made
from tbe juice of hemp leaves, with which
the neopbytei were intoxicated. The
ipeculative prinoiplei of thii wot were to
a large extent Identical with thou of the
Bo-calted lsmaelito heresy: that is to uy,
the diotatea of positive religion and morality were rejected m worthless the practices
of faithful Moilemi were derided, the existing political and locial lyitemi were discarded, and the one fundamental rule of
life impoacd on the Initiated wm unqueat-
ioning obedience to the will of their
immediate superior! in the hierarchical
order. The external policy of thia maleficent leet wm marked by a peculiar and
characteristic feature, namely, the systematic employment of aecret ossaasination
against thoae persons whom iti leaders
chose to regard u their enemies, among
whom monarch! and the principal upholders of the existing social regime would
naturally be conspicuous. This practice
wm introduced by Hassan, the founder
and supreme ruler of the association, who
from his place of residence wm best known
aa the Shoikh-ul Jebal, or Old Man of the
Mountains. When a deed of blood wu to
be dono, the agents were picked out from
the ranks of the young men, or Assassins
proper, whose esoteric name wm Fedaviea,
or devoted ones. The selected murderen
and introduced into the splendid gardens
of tbe Sheikh where they were surrounded
with every sensual pleMure. Suoh a fore*
taste of the paradise which, as they believed, could only be attained through the
favor of their ruler, made the young men
eager to obey his alightest command, and
at a word from him they were nady to
resign their lives. The AaaaBsini aoon
made their power felt. One of the earliest
viotime of their daggere waa Ni jam-el-Mulk,
the Vizier of the Sultau,Malik-Shah; and the
subsequent death by poison of the Sultan
himself wm ascribed to the society. Under
the second leader, who succeeded Hasseu
in A. D. 1124, the Hot of manslayera
acquired a stronghold ia Syria and became
an object of more widespread dread, a long
series of distinguished men being sacrificed,
in ipite of elaborate precaution!, to their
It wm with the Syrain branch of the As-
auins that the Crusaders became acquainted; and it wm believed to have been the
emissaries of the Old Man of the Mountains who murdered Count Raymond of
Tripoli and Conrad of Moutferrat. The
strokes of death, however, continued to
be dealt impartially at Moslem and at
Christian. The Caliph Moitarachen-
ali-Manaur wu Miaulnated in his tent
aud soon afterward the Caliph Ruhid met
with a similar fate. Nevertheless, against
a sovereign of unusual abilities, like Sala-
din, the Sultan of Egypt and Syria, all the
resouroes of the seoret society were taxed
in vain. The proof thua furnished that the
Assassins were not irresistible, prompted
the concerted aad resolute efforts for their
repreulon, by whioh in the thirteenth century they
It wm Hulaku, a brother of Mangd,
Khan, wielding the forces of the Mongol
conquerors of Asia, by whom, in 1250, the
Persian stronghold of the homicidal sect
wm taken, and some twelve thousand
members of the society wm mueocred,
A little later the Syrian branch of the
Assassini wu nearly extirpated by Bilbara,
the Mameluke Sultan of Egypt and the
sect, considered u a formidable menace to
religion and society, then disappeared,
although some survivors lingered in the
Syrian mountains, where it is uid that
descendants of them yet exist. If then-
cord of the sect of Assassins has any lesson
for those who are confronted by their
modern counterparts, it ia that the dangers
to lociety threatened by an organized body
of fanatics eager to risk their own lives, if
they may destroy those of others, cannot
easily be overrated;and that the extraordinary safeguard! now provided or contemplated by aeveral Kuropean Governments are amply justified.
Usefulness is tbe only key to the world's
kindness, and when age robs a man of usefulness, ita cruelty pursues him to the
grave. There is a lesson for the young in
every failure. Age will come to all who
live long enough to meet it. The young
ought to aim at becoming financially independent of the world m soon as poasible.
Independence ia not to be achieved by the
sudden accumulation of riches. Wealth is
only for the few, but independence might
be for the many, if the many were content
to buy it by self-denial. Pleasures, even
innocent but expensive pleasures, are for
those who can afford them, and others are
dearly buying their enjoyment when, to
purchase pleasure, they sap the resources
which might be their help in the evil time.

New Zealand is making surprising advances in the system of land grants and
loans to settlers with little or no capital.
The late Premier, Mr. Bolloncn.waa credited with entertaining a gigantic scheme
involving a capital of $l._>0,000,000, but tho
meuurea actually proposed by tlio presont
Government are much more modest. $7,*
500,000 ia to be raised in the old country
and $8,750,000 locally by Colonial consols
and other means. The sixteen million odd
dollars realized will be applied to the extension of the ayatem of loans to uttleri
already in foree, Tho scheme wu started
aix or seven years ago, and thore are now
g00 settlers holding 22,(177 acres of land
under Its provisions. The settlers never
obtain actual possession of the land, but
pay 5 per cent, of it! capitalized value as a
perpetual rent. Small loans aru advanced
to them on the security of the improvements
on their farms, aud tbe interest, on the
loans is added to tha rent. In this way
over $128,000 hu been advanced, aud the
yearly payments of rent and interest now
amouot to about 800,00o. Of this total over
$10,000 wu in arrear���rather a considerable
amount in proportion to the whole, antl
almost enough to deter a cautions (iovern-
ment from proceeding further. But the
New Zealanders are apparently well enough
satisfied witb the success of the policy to
extend it fuither. A csreful valuation hu
been made of the improvements effected by
the aottlcrs, and It is estimated that lhey
are worth 8185,000 more thau the $12:1,000
advanced by the Governmeut to enable
them to be mane. Thia gives tho Government fair security for the loans and it Ib

ave been limited to farms uf not more than

system to putoral land. Men and women

The Wilson line steamship Lydian Monarch, ('apt. W. S. Morgan, arrived iu New
York from London on Sunday morning,
having on board ten tona of amokeleaa
powder. Ten tons of powder, smokeless
or any other kind, is a ticklish thing for a
steamship to carry, but the officers of the
Lydian Monarch aay they have been carrying po-vder for years ard havo never had an
accident. Great precautions are taken.
The steamer is not permitted to take the
powder aboard until she has left London,
aud when New Vork is reached she must
ilischargo the explosive portion of her cargo
before docking. The smokeless powder
that came over ou the Lydian Monarch wm
packed in half-pound copper cans, one hundred of which were carried in a woodeu case
lined with /.inc.
The Lydiau Monaroh took on an assorted
cargo at Loudon and steamed to a point off
Gravescnd, where lighters having on board
the cases of powder were in waiting. He*
fnro she was allowed to get near the smaller craft all her fires were put out. Even
the galley stove waa extinguished, and
every match on board wu stowed safely
away, far from tho spot where the powder
waa to be placed. Then the lighters came
alongside, and the work of getting the
powder ou board was begun. Just before
things were ready fur the powder the ua*
men ou the steamer, who are indulged until the last moment, wero required to lay
aside their pipes, bo that when the first
case of powder wu lifted over the rail
there wu not so muoh aa a apark any*
whereon the steamer. Despite the weight
of the cases they were takeu ou hoard by
the men. A hoisting machine would require an engine, and an engine a fire, all
of which would have been in violation of
the law.
When the Lydian M outre li left London
she was laden to her capacity, except on
the starboard side of the lower deck aft.
In this part of the steamer a aort of woodeu
cage, not unlike a huge chicken coop, had
beeu built for the reception of the powder.
It waa made of heavy boards, nailed together with copper nails, and wot just beside
the main hatchway. The cuea of powder
were handled carefully from man to man
until they reached this store room, where
they were packed for the voyage by First
Ollicer William Sanders and Second Ollicer
Hugh Dibb. Aa soon aB tho last case wu
packed away and the entrance to the
magazine had been bolted with heavy stripe
of wood, the main and every other hatchway were battened down so that it would
be imp *siihle for any one to get near the
powder. Not once during the trip were
any of the hatches opened, and severe
punishment would have been inflicted upon
any man caught lighting a match or
smoking near the spot where the powder
had been stored. All uf theao precautions
were kept up during the trip and un Sunday,
whon the Lydian Monarch dropped anchor
in Graveseml Bay,the powder was in exactly
the same condition as when it wu placed
on board at Gravesend, England,
Early yesterday mot ning preparations were
made to remove the puwder from the steamer to lighters, Before a hatch was opened
every fire on board wai put out. The
lighters then came alongside, and aa delicately u they would have handled cuea of
fine china the seamen of the Lydian Monarch removed the hatches, opened up the
maga/.iue,and began passing out the powder.
About fifteen men stood in line, two feet
apart, and passed the cases along until they
reached the lighters, where they were laid
in piles upon the decks, After all the
powder had been removed the Lydian Monarch got up steam again and proceeded tn
her dock in Brooklyn, where she discharged
the rest of her cargo.
To a reporter Second Ollicer Dibb aaid:
"Of courae, its neceasary to use every precaution when you haye an much powder on
board ship, and while to a landsman it
may seem tnat we are running great risk
we are in reality in uo danger, for I oan
imagine no way in which the powder could
he exploded uoleaa the ahip caught afire.
The men aa well as the olfijera appreciate
the faot that tho utmost care must be exercised. It would be absolutely impoaaible
for a man to reach the powder, ai there
are hundreds of other casea packed all
around it, and the hatches are battened
down and watched night and day."

Everywhere in the East, and especially
in Hindustan and Nepaul, marriages are
made at a very early age. Parents contract for the wedding of their children
while they are yet but littio boya and girla,
and neither the boy nor the girl hu any
voice in the matter. They are simply
coupled with all the display that the parents on both Bidet can afford, and then the
poor little things go back to their homes
to be nursed and petted and trained until
they are old enoutrhto havo a lion.0 of their
own. Thus this little King of Nopaul, the
eighth royal (llioorka who had come to the
throne, waa married when he waa ten years
old to a baby princess half his age, chosen
for him from one of the royal families of
northern India. Nor did it ever occur to
the prime minister, or tbu pricata, or the
aatrologera, or tho match -makers, that
either the bridegroom or tbe bride had anything whatever to do with the businesa.
But the wedding waB "perfectly splendid." A picturesque concourse of Asiatic
guests, wilh a sprinkling of European
strangers, wm gathered in the pavilions
and rotundas of the palace; und there was
profuse distribution of pretty souvenirs
and gifts among them. Every ono received
something���a noBegsy of rare Eastern
flowers emblematic of happiness and joy, a
miniature phial of attar of roses, a little
silver flask of delicate perfume, a dainty
Btiarf or handkerchief apriuklod with rose*

a lacquer box. And then came tbe little
king���alone of courae, for an oriental bride
must not lie exposed to the publi*: gaze���
home on a silver litter curtained in orange
and purple satin, embroidered with gold,
and hung with massive bullion fringe.
Seated ou a great cushion of cloth of gold
piled with shawls of Cubmere aud Canton,
he wu borne around lhe rotunda, a luminous vision of flashing jewels, and a musical
murmur of liny bells, trom his plumed
helmet to hiB slipper*--.

Our Itig Thursday occurs tliis week.
It is the Farmers' Duy--a day of profit
and pleasure combined. It is the only
day when as a class they ,ire supreme���
on the very top. What products they
liroc-uce! What a wealth of fine animals
grains, fruits and vegetables! Wbo
Wouldn't be a farmer? How independent!
They live off of the soil, and not like the
rest of us off of each other. Il is true
lhey work hard, but they are free from
much of the worry of the tradesman.
Then excercisc gives them healthy bodies, splendid appetites and refreshing
slumbers. And we are all dependent upon them. The farmer is King; and it is
fitting he should have one day in the year
for himself. This year it is Thursday.
From all parts of th.e district they will
gather���the farmers and their wives and
their red cheeked daughters and there
strong limbed sons; and they will bring
with them more than their progenitors
took into the ark. They wilt make an
exhibition that they muy well be proud
of, and that will gladden the eyes of all
beholders. The best in the laud will be
there in size, in strain and in beauty.
And we who are nol farmers can only
look on and admire. We may vainly regret that our lines were not cast -in* such
pleasant places as theirs, but let
us grudge them not their good fortune.,
but try and help make their IJig Day as
glorious as possible. What a feast for
the eyes, to be followed Liter by the battle of the jawr.! Let us throw up our
hats and shout���"Long life to the farmer
and success to ihe Exhibition!"
It would appear as though there might
be a change of front on the liquor ques"
tion by some of the most earnest men
and women w'no arc devoting themselves
to the cwxsi of temperance. It is said
lhe revered head of the W. C. -T. U., has
changed her views as a result of her
study of the question in European capitals. She believes, it is said, in education, and the power of love rather than
of force. Gov. Tillman, of South Carolina, is a most pursuasive temperance
advocate, and through the enforcement
of the law whereby the state regulates
and dispenses liquors he has arrayed
against himself the deadly hatred of the
saloons, Now we have the startling announcement that the great influence of
iiaditone has been thrown in favor of
the Gothenburg system, as well as of that
astute statesman, Mr. Chamberlain. It
is not to be expected, however, that the
friends of temperance will be united m
opinion on this great question any more
than in religion or other matters. That
public opinion may be so potent as to
prevent drunkeness, all good people will
devoutly pray; but ;t is probable that ex
hemes here as elsewhere, however sincere, may not be thc safest leaders. It
i-. by experience rather than by theory
that the legisiator should be guided;
but when present methods fail it may not
be unwise to try a system like that of
Gothenburg, especially as it has so far
proved beneficial. At any rate the new
movement is interesting to all students of
social science.
Senator Hill's nomination as Governor
of New York means that he is to be a
candidate for the presidency at the next
national convention. He is to-day the
most prominent democrat in the nation,
and by far the greatest politician. Instead of befog lost in the Senate as many
predicted, he has shown himself, fearless
able and commanding. He has been
there a most conspicuous figure. If elected, as doubtless he will be over Money
��� Hags, Morton, it will give him a prestige that will enable him to sweep the
next national convention. Cleveland will
be retired in accordance with the un-ftrit-
len law that no man can hold a third
term of thc presidency, and there is no
one lie need fear. We doubt, however
bis election. Thc Republicans will carry the country, and probably McKinley
will be the standard bearer. Hill
is  astute,    crafty,  and   cunning but
not a great staiesman. When it comes
to thc national arena, breadth, wisdom
and high character tells, and in these qual
i:ies Hill is sadly lacking. The battle is
on and will be watched with unabated interest.

here,'Count Nlercicr was dying, and prob
ably ere this he has bidden farewell lo
earthly scenes. rjis last 'honrs were
hrightened hy reconciliation* with political rivals, and doubtless, now that he
has gofie, or soon to depart, a milder and
juster judgementwill be formed of him.
He was a brilliant man, and his last
years were, clouded by mistukps, hot
greater than made by many who never-
i he I ess, succeeded in keeping upon the
popular waves, while he was engulphed.
