The regular annual meeting of St.
George's Prubyteriaa church was held
in the auditorium ot the church on Fri-
diy evening, it which the congregation
wu well rcprcscated. Rev. Mr. Logan
Mr. Russell gave 1 very interesting report from the Session ind S. tchoot
Miss Girrisnn presented the Y. P.S. C.
E report which indicated that there wat
a good dul of activity in tht young people of the congregation.
Reports were read by the secretary and
treasurer, Mr. Mitcell, which showed that
Ihe friends of the church,' were all things
considered, ia a healthy stilt. Theu te
ports along with the estimates were received, discussed, and adopted.
The officers for thi year were then ip-
Sinted as follows: ���Managers���L. C.
tcdoaald, James Reid, C. McLean, T
L. Ray, Wm Mitchell, and 0. McKeniie
The last two were added this year. James
Reid was nude secrrwry, Win Mitchell
treasurer, James Addison and Dr. Jeffs
auditors, and A. Lindsay janitor. The
ushers appointed are "Wm Mitchell, A.
Lindsay, D. McKeniie and Mr. Langman
Oa niotioa the matting adjourned to
mut nur the close of December; u it
wis agreed'to make the ecleuiiticil close
wiih Ihr calendar year.
We think it was Beecker whs said it
wu 1 misfortune l*f 1 person of oalv
average ability to r&e 00 soma occuioa
to the height ef a gnat effort, because a
reputation thus established required too
great labor to maitwia. It would seem
best for one thus mulled to oaly tagage
ia literary wotk occasionally and whtn
there is ample opportunity for tbe bur
possible achievement. The spectacle of
falling sun is aot encouraging.
It too often khtapi jfcit authors rely
upon their repuiati.ojt tfl Seat 1 work with
little merit.' Tke'SMt that they can do
good mark, ance letnowiedged. by the
public; tkiy imagine isill that is needed.
But experience scan proves new delusive
this view is. There are some authors
who never publish anything which does
net represent.their, best thoughts and
culture, thus ittiring a growing popularity. Tm muck h.iste hu caused
many 1 literary tua to stl never to rist
A great many versifiers rush into print
without iny welt grounded idiat of pros,
ody. This is doubtless partly owing to
thc want ef any reliable work on tke
subject. If tbey take Pope at an example
they will have little difficulty in following
his forms but they will not find a pattern
suited tn ill subjects. Tke study of foe
will yield much profit, fer although ef
erratic genius he took few liberties, con-
fining hit verse to regular measure, yet
by substitution of equivalents, producing
a variety suited to the varying sentiment.
We received some verses not long since
which thc author strangely thought were
correct in metre because be could sing
them in a certain air. When we pointed out lhat a certain line in one of the
verses did not correspond with itl mate,
he quickly overcame the 1 difficulty by
repeating the words quickly in onc case
and mare slowly in the other so as to
make their utterance occupy the ume
time. And this galloping through one
line and passing through the other on a
slow walk, so to speak, did aot strike
kirn as at all peculiar.

April 13rd. As the course commenced
with a concert su it will end with a con

end as brilliantly ai it opened which of
courie is etpecting a good deal but not
more, we feel sure than will be realised.
Every effort will be put forth to hive a
lilting close tn a course of entertainments
whicli has been so succeuful. As many
hold course tickets, and as lhe admission
for others will be onl, 15 cents there will
naturally be a crowded house, and we
may be sure tkey will be well entertained.

a little aftor 9 o'ulock. and she wus
then liruught intu tlie house iu a

The prisoner Hammond asked witness
while there if lie (witness) was* sure
Katie had been taking medicine
lately, and witness replied " No."
Hammond then usked him to go upstairs to lier room and see if tliere
was no poison in it. 'Witness, retimed
to go,.-and asked Hammond if he had
been with Katie that Dlglit. Hammond replied tliat he had not. Witness then usked the prisoner 11 lie

tliat ho was not; that she was married to a man nalned Jnmes, whom
lie knew slightly, and with whom lie
had talked a lew Mines, Witness iur*
thor said that the trunk brought Irom
Toronto by Constable Sloan was his
trunk,  und was  lent to his sister.
To Mr. Koss the witness admitted
that he was not friendly towards'

that Hammond was the first to suggest tlie Idea of poison in connection
with Katie's death on the night it
occurred, lie testified to having found

acid between the ticks lif Katie's bed.
He explained theu where hu found

had heard his brother ask llaiiniiuinl

Afterwards, when they wire all iu

My Dear Kate,���Am very sorry to
have kept ymi waiting so long for
your thing*, but I am coming up tomorrow, and will bring it with me,
and I would nave went up before but
the Gov. came down, as you perhaps
know, and so detained me. ��� If you

It was Morgan who Und s<*en John
Slough, and hud offered to settle nil
money questions with him. Neither
he nor Diego, however, had expressed
��ny surprise at not seeing llouert,
am! It appeared as if a sort or tacit
agreement kept them away irom El*
I en's husband ; but IJobort was too
much absorbed by the anxiety which
his wlfe�� Mines? caused Mm to pny
any attention to their behavior. For
a wliolc mouth tlio delirium continued,
attended almost every day by ter-
riblo fits. Gradually, however, the
fever disappeared, but loft tlio patient
in a state of extreme weakness* It
was a profound torpor, a general prostration.
Thnt nature so firm, so energetic,
so vorfle, had suddenly disappeared,
ami when the convalescence of the
body was complete the malady ol the
mind continued. Ellen passed whole
days without tweaking, holding lier
���son's hand and weeping silently. Summer and a part of autumn passed thus,
and Robert could not make up his
mind to leave Ids patient for a single
day, in spite of liis business interests
wliich urgently required his presence.
The time was approaching,however,
when he would be forced to attend to
the disposal of Marys property. Kllen
was her sisters heir, nnd however
great was Robert's repugnance to
occupy himself with question of money,
he was about finally to make up his
mind to attend tn them, when one
morning John Slough brought him
tt ran go news.
Dlego. Morgan nnd the Moorish servants had left without saying where
they were going, and this abrupt disappearance had a remarkable resemblance to a flight, Rumors of this
singular departure had spread apace,
and creditors had poured in from every
quarter. There was no doubt in any
one's mind of Diego's utter ruin, nnd
this news wns accompanied hy the
most insulting remarks. Robert soon
learut from a sure source that his
sister-in-law's fortune had passed entirely Into her husband's bands, in
virtue of documents of which the unfortunate woman had not understood
even the meaning.
This sad conclusion surprised him
Uttle; he had long foreseen it, and
soon consoled himself for it. Mary's
death bad severed the last tie which
bound hlin to Dlego, uud the loss of
tho money was nothing to him, for a
much more dreadful trial had been re-
nerved for him. Kllen had never recovered from the blow wliich the
fatal event at Salnt-Oucn had inflicted on her. lier strength diminished day by day, aud her life was
gradually flickering out. Robert witnessed, heart-broken, the slow decay
of this loved existence, and, ln order
to spare his son his share of sorrow,
ho Imposed upon himself the frightful
torture ol concealing his grief aud
���wallowing his tears.
At that timo George was sixteen
years old, and ho adored his mother.
Misfortune ls handed down like a herb
her with kisses. She had still
strength tu extend lo each of them u
bund, then her head fell back ia a
last convulsion. A deep sigh issued
from her colorless lips.
It was her last. Ellen was dead.
Robert's despair was of that nature
which finds no expression in words-
groat grief ls dumb. It wus his wish
that Ellen should rest in the cemetery
at Whltstable, and he found strength
to take her body to England and pay
the last sad duties. Ou Ids return to
Paris, crushed with grlel, he found
himself face to fuee with min. John
Slough, to whom he had entrusted his
affairs, had had great difficulty ln
saving n few fragments of the fortune
left by Disney. Robert was especially
anxious to 'keep the cottage in England ln which Ellen had been born,
and tho house ln which she had just
died in France, He sacrificed his last
resources In order to retain possession
u' theso two places, wliich were not
seized by his creditors, "and he continued to live at Montmartre for the
time being. He found a sad charm iu
surrounding himself with mournful
souvenirs, aud he would willingly have
died In the midst of the remains of
that past which had faded away in
teara. His son bound him to life
Ueorgo was nearly eighteen. He hnd
just finished his studies, and he showed a decided leaning towards the
exnet sciences. He was a tall, handsome youth, und his features recalled
in a striking manner tnose of Ellen.
His mother's death had imprinted ou
his character a touch of melancholy
that it uever lost; hut, beneath the
exquisite sensibility which he inherited frum her, was concealed a firm
and upright mind, and a heart filled
with generous instincts. The time had
arrived when his future must be
thought ol, and the choice of a career
could no longer be deferred. Robert
himself felt the necessity of working,
in order to build up again that fortune which had so suddenly crumbled
away. After tho financial disaster
which had befallen him in France,
England alone olfered him a favorable
chance of making a fresh start. He
had added to his former knowledge
the experience gained during twenty
years of work, and It was only to he
expected that he would easily find a
market for his knowledge In a country where trade at the time was ina
most favorable state. He proposed,
moreover, to complete George's education ln London, and to take him as
a partner in Ids work. So he decided
to leave Paris; but on leaving the
house where he had spent the happiest days of his life, he could not bear
to think of its beiug profaned by
strangers.   .
Ellen's room remained in exactly the
same state as on the day ot her death.
Robert left tliere the furniture which
his wife had used; he had tho fastenings made stronger, shut up the house,
whicli from that time forth wore a
tomb-like look, and atarted with
George for England. The faithful
Slough accompanied them, so Robert
left no one in France that was dear
to him, and he resolved never to return, hut to visit tho dear relics at
He would not open the chest where
Ellen hnd locked up the proof of
Diego's crime.   In spite of himself, he
ed him to watch ovor what trifling
interests he still hud In Whltstable
and Paris. A week after their appointment tlie father and son had
taken up their posts on board their
ship, and the frigate left Spltbead on
a splendid spring morning which gave
the verdant slopes of the Isle of
Wight the warm and many-tinted
look of some southern shore; On leaving Old England once again Robert
could not help thinking sadly of that
day when, twenty years before, he
had seen the white cliffs of Dover disappear in the haze. God had taken all
those whom he had loved then, and,
with tho adored child who remained
to him, he was once more about to
brave the perils of life. It wns tempting misfortune, and misfortune was
not long in coming.
Tiie Avenger was a steam frigate,
built several years before upon the
old system, that is to sny, provided
with paddles, and already worn out
by numerous voyages. Robert soon
saw that they made very Uttle way,
and the voyage was a laborious one,
for he had to attend to engines which
were ln a bad state, and needed frequent repairs. However, he performed
his difficult task with success, and
his son's skllfulness was particularly
appreciated by the captain, a rather
rough old sailor whom George's willingness and good nature finally overcame. Robert was proud to see him
beloved and sought by the young officers, who appreciated his gentle and
communicative gaiety as much as
they did liis sound attainments. For
his part, he took measures from the
very first to live somewhat apart

During fine weather the Mediterranean is nothing but a magnificent lake,
and voyages on it resemble pleasure-
trips. The winter brought a little
variety to a life which every one began to find monotonous, and the
Avenger experienced several storms,
which taught Robert the dangers of
this sea which is so calm in appearance.      The frigate

It was, in truth, the birthday ol
Spring, For Robert it was the dny of
final farewell. Ellen bugged him to
scud George away, ana when they
were alone sho said, In a voice which
waa feeble as a whisper i
"Robert, I feel that I am going to
leave you, I begnn to die on the day
when my sister became the victim of
a cruel murder, anil the blow which
killed her has smitten mo to tho
heart. Watcli over bur sou. I leave

If ever George's life were to be threatened by hint who brought mourning
and disgrace into our family, make
use of this proof, and let the felon be
punished. May God alone mete out
the chastisement I"
Tliese were her last words.
Her voice had gradually become
feebler; her arms moved as if she
would have thrust death away, and
a leaden hue spread over her pale
face. Robert had fallen on his knees,
and George, who had hurried up on ,
hearing his father's sobs, had thrown
himself upon his mother, and covered

Separated from him, His studies and
his experience enabled him to fulfil
the duties ot uu engineer und
mechanic, and at tliat time openings
were not wanting in England. Not to
mention the railways, whioh began to
extend their uot-wurk over tho wholo
kingdom, navigation by steam hud
become enormously developed, and
men understanding engines easily
found employment. Tho Royal Navy,
especially, was at that time recruiting a body of mechanical engineers
to whom It offered groat advantages.
Now, George had a great tasto for
navigation, aud Robert had always
loved the sou. He looked out for a
berth for his sou and for himself, and,
thanks to some old friends of Thomas
Disney's who had somo influence at
the Admiralty, he obtained tho post
of euglueer ou a frigate, with permission to take George as his first hand.
The young man, who had Just obtained his diploma, could hardly contain himself for Joy. The name of tho
ship was Avenger, und sho wns awaiting at Portsmouth her orders to Join
the English squadron in the Mediterranean.
Their preparations  wero  few. Robert had long betore installed his old
friend Slough In the cottage; ho con- ;
tided to him tho care of It, nndchnrg- l
 .-.*_...-..    behaved fairly
well during the bad weather, although she was heavy and difficult
to manage; but the engineers had a
great deal of trouble with the engines,
wliich frequently got out of order.
Several times Robert thought it his
duty to Inform the old captain that
repairs on land were indispensable, but
the old sailor thought that tliey could
be deferred.
The necessities of tlie service had
become urgent, The garrisons were
being changed at Malta, and in the
Ionian islands, and the Avenger was
continually occupied iu going to Gibraltar to fetch men, arms aud money.
The captain was a man wlio was too
sure of his past experience and too
confident of his skill to be stopped
by obstacles of secondary Importance. Perhaps, eveu, lie took a certain
pride in running some risk in the
performance of a task which he looked
upon as much beneath his merits.
One would have said tbat he preferred to Suit out to sea in weather
which would keep other ships In
port, and that he took a pleasure in
ploughing his way through enormous
He soon had au opportunity of satisfying himself. At the beginning of
January the Avenger was at anchor
at Gibraltar, and was only waiting"
to complete a heavy cargo consisting of artillery, ammunition and
money for the soldiers' pay. The passengers wero more numerous than
usual, for many officers, having obtained leave to go to Naples or Rome,
for the Carnival, took advantage of
tho voyage of the Avenger in order
to make their way to Italy by way
or Malta.
The weather had been threatening
for several days, and it wus probable that at the entrance to the
Straits they would moet witli a
very heavy sea, for many vessels hnd
been forced to put Into the Bay of
Altfeslrns. Tlio captain, who wns
only too ready to weigh anchor, consulted, notwithstanding, a Maltese
pilot whom he had brought With him
and who answered for the safety of
the trip. The wind, which was blowing   from   fho West,  wus favorable.
Tho last of tho cargo havlug been
taken on board about G o'clock In
the evening, they weighed anchor In
order to leave the port before night.
Robert had carefully inspected the
engines, und, thanks to a few hastily
performed repairs, he was In hopes
that ull would go well ut least as
far as Malta. He could not help feeling anxious, however; but he thought
he had paid all debts in full to fate
and that misfortune must bo weary
of making sport of him.
The weather at first was calm. The
frigate rolled a gnat deal by reason
of the strong west wind; but the
breeze was still moderate, and they
made good way. About midnight,
when the frigate was at the mouth of
the Straits, tlie weather -.-hanged.
The wind went suddenly round to the
northwest aud began to blow a gulf-
The engines labored terribly, and
Robert thought it prudent to let
George rest and to sit up Iu his
About fl o'clock In the morning an
enormous sea struck the ship. Roliert, thrown down by the shock,
heard a terrible   crash,    which    he
not at firs; understand, but
the meaning of which he found out
only too soon. The rudder had btion
curried away.
This was a serious accident���the
most serious, perhaps, ol any that
can possibly happen at sea. A ship
without a rudder is liku a horse
without a bridle. From this fatal
moment ail ou board the Avenger
were rushing to death, without knowing on what coast the wind would
drive them.
Robert woke his son and went on
deck to ask for orders. The sight
which he saw was one of those which
cuu never be forgotten. Tlie day was
breaking, wan aud sickly. It lighted
up mournfully u waste of waters
of a dirty gray color, which
rose like wails on each side of the
ship, and rushed past her witb a
sinister sound. There "was no sky
visible. It was hidden by tlie liquid
dust which the furious hea threw up
as it broke. No horizon. Nothing but
a trough of the sea, iu whleh the
frigate rolled heavily. Lashed at his
post, the captain was encouraging
by voice and gesture those sailors
who had not been washed overboard
by the terrible mountains of water.
Robert made his way towards him,
and usked for his orders. The old
sailor gave him them, firm, clear and
precise, as if the Avenger bad been
lu safety at Malta, at author in the
Port of Vale tta. In u few words he
explained their situation to Robert.
It  was a terrihle one.
Tho northwest wind wns driving
the frigate towards the coast of Africa at a fearful speed, and, deprived
of her rudder, she was nt the mercy
of tho waves. In order to steer her,
the captain's ouly hope was In tlie
engines, and this hope wns but a
feeble one. Hla plan was by holding
the ship up to the wind by the aid of
the paddles, to endeavor to steer due
east. But this manoeuvre, au uncertain one ln any weather, was almost Impossible lo the midst of a
tempest and with inferior engines.
It had to be tried, however, and
Robert went dowu to superintend it.
George was waiting for him at his
post, his face calm, his look serene,
aad the sight of his sou, so confident
In the presence of danger, inspired
Roliert with a little hope. The
whole of that day and the following
night were passed in this superhuman
struggle against the storm. The
frigate kept well out to sea, and did
not deviate much from her course, if
the wind only abated a little, thoy
might still avoid the African coast,
und, the sea having become calmer,
rig up a steering-gear and gain a
safe anchorage,
It was tlieir last chance. It speedily disappeared. On the morning of
tlm second day the shaft snapped,
and the sharp sound of its breaking
rang in Roliert's ears liko a death-
knell. Nothing could save them now,
nothing but a miracle. The furious
impulse of tho northwest wind must
inevitably drivo tho frigate on the
rocks at Kabylie, and tliere tlio natives would finish off those whom the
sea spared.
Robert went up on deck with
George. Their task with the engines
was over, sinco they could no longer
act; but they could still help the-
sailors, who were trying to rig a
temporary rudder. Before setting
themselves to this work, wliich had
become very dangerous, on account
of tho waves wliich swept over the
ship at every moment, the father
and son tenderly embraced one another. They knew that they were
about to die, and they knew also
that death would not separate them,
Towards mid-day tho storm appeared to abate a little, and the wind
got back to tlie west. An unlooked-
for chance presented itsolf; the Avenger had not yet drifted enough to
the south to clear the coast of Africa,
and by steering duo east tbey would
havo tho open sea belore them, for
two days at least. Hopo revived in
overy heart, and the captain reanimated tho exhausted crow by his
exhortations, For nearly sixty hours
neither he nor his officers had left
the deck.
The day passed, and the ship had
not changed her course. She was
flying at a terihlo speed before thn
wind, with the land ou her starboard
(juarter, and although this was tho
only courso which could savo the
vessel and her crew, many dangers
still menaced them. They had not
been able to take any observation for
two days, and no ono on board knew
their exact position. According to
tho Captain's opinion tho Avenger
was probably at that time passing
Bougie, and leaving It about ninety
miles to the south; but these calculations could only be approximate.
According to the course they wero
following they might go to pieces on
the Islands of Sardinia or Sicily, or
pass by a miracle between the two.
It wns a question of life and death,
und God niono could determine It.
Towards tho evening the wind, although still blowing from tho west,
dropped sensibly, and they were able
to try and set somo sail. If the
night passed without somo catastrophe, rescue was yet possible.
Robert hnd told George not to leave
hini, and at about nine o'clock at :
iiI��;ht the father and son wero together lu the fore part of tlio ship,
The second mate who was thore on
tho look-out, hud called them to assist him if necessary, Tim aight was
very dark, and, In spite of tlie most
careful attention, It was difficult to
distinguish anything a short distance
away. All at once George, whose
eyes were lietter than Roliert's,
clasped his father's arm and called out
to him:
" Breakers ! I pee breakers ahead I"
In the dense obscurity which enveloped them Robert fancied he could
distinguish before him a kind of
White belt, nnd he turned to call tbo
officer of tho watch, but ho had not
time. A terrible concussion shook
the frigate, and the masts fell with
a crash, An enormous sea lifted the
hull and let It fall with violence. The
Avenger heeled over on her side, and
the stern, torn off by a furious wave,
plunged ami disappeared In tlie foam.
At the iirst sliock Robert, seizing
Georgo by his belt, leapt with him
Into tlie netting. Bj Clinging to the
cordage of tho bowsprit, ami clasping one (mother tightly, they were
able to withstand tin* terrific shock.
Wheu tho enormous wave which had
dashed them on tne rocks had poured
over them like a mill-race, and aa
soon tas tie conui get his breath, Robert lookea about him and fancied he
could distinguish a few cables' lengths
ahead a black mass, Incessantly wash*
ed with foam. It was the reel upon
Which the Avenger bad struck. Behind him tho shattered deck of the
frigate disappeared In tho night. The
wreck trembled ns each fresh sea
washed over it, but It still kept Itu
position. Robert saw that a lucky
chance had wedged it firmly between
two rocks, and that it would remain
there until broken up by the sea.
* ��� ��� ��� ���
After their rescue from the Sorelle
by Diego's shiver Robert hastily mads
up his mind what  Us do.
To pretend to be the dupe and pro- .
fess confidence was tho task he Imposed upon himself. H<' must at any
price remain impenetrable. A word, a
gesture surprised by one of the scoundrels, was denth for both father und
son. It wns necessary, however, to
hit upon srtrne moans of escape. Robert thought it pretty certain that
a favorable chance would present itself on the coast of Brazil: but. even
nMowing that "ho could escape, the
problem was only hull-solved.
Suddenly nn idea struck him. The
Avenger contained treasure within
its submerged recesses. The gold that
Robert had seen taken on board at
Gibraltar was now lying at the bottom of the sea, amongst the dreaded
Sorelle rocks. The last fragments of
the ship had disappeared beneath the
waves, and there was nothing to
show what the unfortunuto frigate
had perished on this root*
Three persons still possessed the
secret: Robert, George, and the
Irish sailor who had been saved with
them; it was possible, moreover, that
tlds mnn did not know of the embarkation of these cases of gold, although
the contrary was the, more probable.
The father and son were thus the
sole masters of immense wealth, lawful masters���at least so thought Robert���since without them the Bea
would retain its prey. As for the
means of getting possession of it,
Thomas Disney's pupil wns In no difficulty about snatching n fortune
from the waves.

Palpitation nf tlte Heart Defined.
Palpitation of tho heart is perhaps
the most common symptom of heart
disease, nnd is defined as pulsations
that are perceived by the patient, it
comes on in paroxysms, with intervals of more or less freedom from
attack. The h^nrt may begin to
beat violently; It may pound against
the walls of tho chest; tho vessels
may throb ln the nock ; the eyes become suffused, nnd tho head ache; ors
on the other hand, tbo heart urny""
be very rapid and very feeble, so
that tho pulse may onnslst only of
a scries of rapid and almost Impalpable waves.
Those suffering from palpitation 01

Elwood, sen., a resident of Sinicoo
for about two yoars, and for years
a resident of Fort Erie, a carpenter by trade, is loud In his praise of
the benefits ho derived from the use
of I'ills. In an interview with Mr.
Elwoodt tliat gentleman told tho Reformer thnt about eight years ago ho
was attacked With uiccruted catarrh
of the head and throat, nnd was
obliged to quit work, and since that
time lias not beon ablo to resume his
calling. The disease, shortly after
he was taken ill, developed Into neuralgia of the lower limbs, from whicli
be suffered terrible agony. During
his long illness the services of specialists in both Toronto nnd Buffalo, ns
well as those of local physicians, both

so great were tho pains that Bhot
through his limbs, that at times Mr.
Elwood had to lio held down ou bis
couch. ��� His stomach and bowels
were seriously affected, ana ho was
indeed in a. deplorable condition.
About a year ago he lost the uso of
his left foot and ankle, nnd was unable to walk around hie home without
great difficulty. At ouo time Mr.
El wood wns possessed of a good
home, but so long was ho ill that he
spent all his property in the hope of
regaining his health. Lost fall Mr.
Elwood commenced taking I'ink I'ills
and shortly after he began to feci an
improvement in his condition. He
continued the use of tho pills until
lie bad taken thirteen boxes, when he
regained the use of his foot nnd ankle,
aud thought he was about cured and
discontinued their use. So long bad
bo been a sufferer, however, tliat it
was Impossible for him to become
convalescent iu so short a time. An
attack of the grip again brought on
the disease, but not by any means so
terrible as formerly. Mr. Elwood
again commenced taking the pills,
and Is fast regaining his former

of disease from his system. Ho feels

Tho eatae routo ns taken In 1881 will
bo followed, but owing to tho low
water in the Nile, tbo transport of
ammunition and'supplies must bo by
camels, of which a vory largo number will bo required. It is proposed
to conquer tlio Soudan, province by
province. Dongoia will bo first taken, nnd then a great deal will depend
upon circumstances. * While the campaign Is endorsed by the Unionists,
tho Liberals and Radical press loudly
protest against it.
A despatch to thoifilobe from Cairo'

Cairo cable: The advance of
the British-Egyptian troops from
Wady-Halfa Up tho Nile upon Dongoia will bo commenced without do-
lay, according to statements mtfdo In
semi-official  circles here.
Tho British-Egyptian troops under
orders to proceed up the Nile In the
direction of Dongoia Will consist of
8,000 mon.    All will carry arms.
The route wliich will be followed Is
this: There is a railway as far as
(iirgh, 840 miles from Cairo. Then
to Wady-Halfa. a distance of 250
miles further, there Is no obstacle to
Nile navigation, but the remaining
250 miles to Dongoia present Immense difficultly. Th.o,t portion of
tho river which lies between Wudy��
Haifa and Tsnklrmatta, a distance of
109 miles, is the worst part, five serious cataracts having tt) be encountered with a succession of rapids and
rocks. ' r
There is much rejoicing In the British army at the prospect of another
campaign In the Soudan, In spite of
tlte past experiences with the fierce,
tireless troops of thc Mahdl, and the
recent defeat of the Ttallnns by the
Abysslnlans. Th/tt a British-Egyptian
advance up tlie>��ftjp from "Wady-Halfa
on Dongoia hn^ boon determined upon
is no longer a question I" doubt. All
tho British officers of the Egyptian
army who have heen absent on leave
havo been ordered to- return,, tothelr
posts immediately, and a ihisjinteh
from Cairo announces that the Connaught Hangers have already horn or-
dored to "Wady-Ilalfa.
Rome cable: A despatch from
Massowah says: The Nogua has reviewed 100,000 of ids troops la the
presence of Major Salsa, the Itatta'h
officer who Is treating for peace with
the Abysslnlans. The troops marched
in good order, and were well armed.
The Negus showed Major Salsa Ids
quantities of provisions, tho Italians
having some timo ago been undor tho
belief that the Abysslnlans were short
of supplies. In fact, It is Baid tliat
this was one ot the reasons that
prompted Gen. Baratlerl to make
his disastrous advance upon Tigre.
, The Tritmmi says that the proposals of the Abyssinian King, Mone-
lek, for ponce with Italy, Include a
demand that King Humbert send him
an autograph letter Requesting
peace, and agreeing 'to the Immediate evacuation of Adlgrnt by the
Italians. '���
King Menelck, the paper enys, further insists ou tho withdrawal of
Italy's forces to the frontiers fixed in
tlie treaty concluded by Ucclll, and
an .agreement on "the part ol Italy to
refrain from erecting new fortresses
and to decline all offers of an alliance
from an outside colony.

The Government has sent a despatch to Gen. Baidiss��ra, commanding tlie Italian troopa in; Afrjca,
stating thnt no discussion* i* possible
on' the proposals.
London cable says: The greatest
possible interest Was manifested" in
the House of Commons to-day, when
the Liberal leader. Sir William Ilar-
c'odrt put ids question to the Government regarding thu proposed;* ud-
Tance ol British-Egyptian troops up
the Nile from Wady-Haffa, and when
the Under-Secretary of state for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geo. N. Curzon, roso
to reply, Jho attention of the whole
House was Immediately centred upon
his utterances.
Mr. Cimon's answer was ia the
shape of a loug and evidently carefully prepar*"l Statement, during
which he pointed out the threatening dervish advances, and their danger to Egypt, and Intimated that the
movement of Egyptian "troops arose
partly from a desire to aid Italy la
her struggle with the Abysslnlans.
Continuing, Mr. Curzon snid the Government was sure that all the subjects of Her Majesty would have the
most sincere sympathy for Italy In
the rererse which tho latter's arms
had suffered in Africa, and he expressed regret at the defeat, of General
Bflratlerl at the battle of Adown.
This statement brought forth loud
Nationalist cries of "No." Mr. Curzon, however, replied that the courage, ot the Italians led to the hope
that they would urlse from their reverses and vlndicato the honor of
their flag. Mr. Cjurzon then said:
" At the present moment influences
nre at work and forces are unchained In "Central Afriea.-whiclv if flushed
with victory ami swollen by a perfectly possible combination of forces,
would constitute a most fjcrlotis danger not merely to Itaily,' Egypt, or
the British occupation of Egypt, but
to the cause of Eur.ope, wldch is the
cause of civilization.'        *
Through Mr. Curzon's speech tlie
Irish interjected cries of "Oh " and
when Mr. T. M. Healy, among others',
cried "Nol" to the Under-Secretary's
expression of sympathy with Italy,
and Mr. Healy's followers cheered,
the speaker paused for an instant,
.and continued, "A sympathy which
la not broken by a few-dissentient
voices nt a misfortune which has befallen a nation of gallq.pt soldier's
and staunch allies." (Great cheering.)
.Continuing, Mr. Curzon sa^d that the
GovernnicuJ; had for some time been
aware of 'tlio threatened advance of
a large force of Dervlfches.* The fad-
Vance threatened three��*wldely objective points, among the'm Dongoia.
The Government had boe.u lu possession of this Information since the
eud of February. The immediate objective point of the Dervishes was,
perhaps Knssnla, blit there was an
ultimate danger, the resi.lt of which
could not fall to react upon Egypt.
The Information which had reached
the Government had caused . considerable anxiety, he said, which had
deepened "since the report: of the disaster to :tho Italians in Abiysfelnla.
Not only-were the Italian'forties there
In difficulties; but Kafisala *tsei! is
threatened by a force uf Dervlnhos
estimated to be .'100,000 strong. The:
Government, Mr. Curzon said, had
beeu In constant communication with
the Government of Egypt, and the
opinion of the military authorities
both Iier6 and in Cairo was that an
advance tip thc Nile i-s nocessarry..
Consequently and advance of. I the
British troops had' been' ordered to at
town one-third of the distance between Wady-Halfa and Dongoia, and
it mny ultimately be made to Dongoia. Referring to the report that
the expedition was primarily destined for Dongoia, Mr. Curzon said
the future actions of the Government must be regulated by considerations not merely of military' Importance, but ot political and financial moment aw well. The Government was convinced that the steps
which It had decided upon woult!"
net as a diversion for tho relief of
Kaesnla, and also save Egypt from
a menace which, If left alone, would
grow- to formidable dimensions,
Mr. LubouChere, member for Northampton, iu moving to adjourn the
lions*, of Commons In. order,to discuss the proposed attack on Dongoia, complained of the .hypocrisy of
tho British policy, and' claimed that
financiers were the root of the whole
business. Continuing Mr. Lnboueherc
quoted from a blue book tfie conversation whicli Mr, Gladstone had with
the French Ambassador, in wliich tho
English statesman declared that
Great Britain would uever attempt
to. ro-OLCupy Dongoia. The result of
the preaent policy of the Government,
afcdordlng to tha. mendier for .Northampton, would tw that the great
powers would unite and Insist upon
Groat Britain fulflilnig her pledges.
��*>lr Charles Dilke, member (or the
Forest of Dean division of Gloucester,
supported tho motion to adjourtii and
in oo doing said that the liritish po-
i Icy would strain Great Britain's ro-
| latlons with tho powers for years,
Dongoia, lie pointed,out, was"-not in
the dlractlcto of Kn'ssala, but la . the
.'direction of Khartoum.
Sir Wildam Vernon ILircourt, the
Liberal leaner la the House, io lowed
Sir Charles Dilke. Ilo said t|iat if
this was tlio first step of a forward
policy in Egypt it was of a most
perilous character and deserved
Sojenuous opposition,* ��� There was a
grdat party in England which learned nothing from experience, and
which was always eager for the extension of the empire, which was already large enough to please the most
inordinate ambition. ��� He would not in
the meantime assume that there was
any intention on tka part of, tjio Government to give the mbvemeut up
the Nile a significance beyond Mr.
Curzou's statement. He asked the
House to noto tluit the Government
repudiated any intention to occupy
the Soudan. Tho House was bound to
assume that this was a small movement for military purposes to moet
a temporary occasion. He hoped
there would be an early' opportunity
to discuss tho matter in its larger
liearlngs, when the whole policy of
the occupation of Egypt was considered.
Right Hon. A. J. Balfour, Government leader In the House, said that
all the Government could state at
present .was jjhaf the advance*must
be made. It would be.premature" to
discuss the further movements intended. Mr. Labouchere, he added,
seemed tn rejoice at the defeat of Italy. That, Mr. Balfour continued,
wus certainly not the view of a single
man on the Government side of the
House.nor was it the view of a majority on the opposite Bide, nor of tho
English people. Even the nations.of
Europe, whose policy was most divergent from that of Italy, expressed,
sympathy for the Italians in the r reverses. ;Mr. Labouchere alto rejoiced
because.of the resurgence of Makdlsm,
Ha;d the world ever seen a more cruel
or worse rule? Ho couid not Conceive
a change moro for the benefit of the
Soudan thnn that the country should'
be transformed to a government act-
lag under English Influence. Nothing
certainly would more conduce-to .the
welfare and prosperity pi the Soudanese than replacing brulTi. anarchy by
regular laws. The Gavefnp,tyit#hQj no.
reason to believe that any great '
power would object to tiie expedition.
certainly those powers favorable to
Italy would not object, nnd /iny other
power that was desirous that Egypt
sliould remain prosperous end secure
would not regret tlie step the Government had taken. Tho Government did
not dream or extending the conquest
to Darrur. That was a nightmare, a
creation of Sir Charles DllkWs imagination. The rumor of a British advance would Bpread with lightning-
like rapidity In the Mahdlst regions,

A  veritable tittle    state, Inhabited
and governed almost entirely by women, exists in the i'roviuce of Smolensk, lu, Western Uutitral Ru-v-fla. It
.is ubout ftftedti vereta ior ton miles)
Btjunrs and contains a large number
���oi populous rilmguSi and the region is
one ot tho mora fertile in the Czar s
���ctoumms,'*sajti u writer lu tho Now
Jfcrk  Worid.
In that part ol Russia it is Called
the, 'woinun'B kingdom,' because the
male population, almost tu a man,
^migrates en masse each springtime to
Mu*.cmv and the other great citi.es
hot inr distant, In search of employment, for the summer season is the
busiest one in these Russian towns.
During <Aio warm weather fairs are
held nnd commerce is at Its height.
The men are therefore enabled to
find wo(k at such wages tliat they
can return to their rura; homes In the
autumn with a greater store of rubles
than tliej could have accumulated
from  tiding the soil.
Tho women are btrong anil hardy,
and, bn hit; left alone, till the fields,
harvest the crops antl do other work
which ordinarily belongs to masculine
husbandmen. Some dress In short
skirts, but a lew of them, to secure
greater freedom of movement, put on
male attire, and the casual traveller
through the province is unable, seeing thtun at work in the fields, to distinguish their sex. In largo house-,
hpjds the Jjoung girls attend to the
ordinary feminine tasks of preparing
meals, sewing, buttermaklng, and the
like, but they are generally eager to
begin tlie outdoor work of thoir older
sisters 'tin soon as they are able.
The inof-jt remarkable feature of
this " women's kingdom." however, ls
that the government of the ynrious
villages is entirely in the bauds of
the sisters, wives and mothers of the
absent men, and remains so, In many
cases, even after tiie men have returned. Each town has Its "lady
mqypross," who presides at all meetings of. tlie. village council, whose
members ard' likewise women. Questions of public Interest nre debated
and decided upon as'In other legislative assemblies, and there Is no
more Jealousy and ��� bickering than Is
ordinarily-tl^e-case wheu the legislative body Is composed of men. Perhaps this Is largely due to the fact
that, *, the ;.months of outdoor labor
give the women strong nerves, ns
well as strong bodies, for among
them 'it Is considered a disgrace to
Indulge In tears or hysterics if anything goes amiss.
-"The political nnd financial condition of tho *' women's kingdom" Is
OB flourishing as that of any province
in tho empire. It is a curious fact
that Iq most other provinces throughout Russia tliere Is said to be bribery nnd corruption on every hand, and
a public pfflce is considered a legitimate eouree of plunder. But ambng
these women " purity In politics" Is
the rule. The female tax gathers are
never guilty of extortion and the
imposts which government levies are
paid cheerfully and exactly.

Rodman -was killed on February

was- ovidently a premeditated and
cold-blooded ono and was involved In

Governor' Morrill offered n reward
of $100 for the arrest uf the murderer, aud the Huppor County Commissioners added $1,000 to the amount.

Once upon a time there lived u cruel
Old Tartar in a splendid castfe.
Sis shaggy beard was as blue as the
sky. He lived alone and his neighbors
were afraid of him. because they had
heard nwful stories about Ids cruelty.
On the opposite side of thq plain
from old blue Beard's custlo there
lived a widow with two beautiful
Ono day old Blue Beard sent them
an invitation to come and visit.him
ut his wonderful castle.
So, dressing themselves in their .gayest clothes, they rode to the castle
.and were received In great sty-le.
The ladies were very much pleased
with Blue Beard, und after that they
called frequently.
Aftor a time he offered to marry the
youngest daughter, who straightway
accepted him.
They had a merry wedding; and for
a time the young bride was-as happy
as any queen.
But one day her husband called hCr
to him and said: "My dear, I am
going away. I shall not be long, but
I want'to leavo theso keys of the
castle with you. Now, mind, if you
value my love, do not enter the Blue
Chamber. Farewell, Fatjiua! Remember I" '
Fatinia promised him she would nht
go near the Blue Chamber, and then
she went with her sister Ann to show
her over thc cas&ie.
When  they   had  finished    the tour '
she began to think about the forbidden chamber.
But, Woman-like, of course, the more
she thought nbout it the more curious '
sho became.
Aftor a time she-left her sister with
some excuse und stnrte.l for the Bine
Chamber. She paused a'minute at the
door and then opened it and walked
bravely in. And what do you suppose gjie saw V

keys, he noticed tho blood stain on
one of them.. " Mighty well, madame,
mighty well," he said.
" What does this little Mood stain

and now you may prepare to die like
tho rest of my faith less wives."
Then Fatlma, Billing on her .km-et*.

her to rush to tlie top of the tower
and see if tlHr brothers were not

the castle at that hour.
In terrible suspense the�� watched
for the sight of horsemen, They
heard Blue B^ard shouting "Time *
