Mr. G. Allen, a man somewhat advanced in years on last Wednesday slept
off a coal car, while the train was in motion, on to the platform, and fell back
against ihc car, and in some way slid
down between thc car and the platform

A ([iiirk ear is not slow in gathering in
a good deal about the ncw waler works.
There is plenty of good water up thc
mountain heights ai Lake Hamilton, and
the rivei or creek that flows therefrom,
and thc people here lliirst for it, as
though it were the veritable elixir of life.
It is said they arc to be gratified in the
spring, Mr. B. Randall lias been surveying, for the Colliery Co, and it is reported th.it there nre no engineering difficulties in the way and that the water can at
comparatively reasonable expense be
conducted lo thc village. It will be a
great boon. Everybody would prefer
we are sure, pure mountain waler, cool as
ice, clear as rrvstal, and soft as thc rain
fall, to any other drink. It would be a
grand protection in case of fire. Hy all
means lei us have the waler and have it
In the spring. In the meantime it would
be well to take all possible precaution^ to
prevent lire. Wc are too young yet" to
stand a baptism of that kind, and most
new towns get it just because it seems
necessary that lhey should gel their fingers���houses we mean- burnt before
they learn wisdom. Il lias been suggested lhat each person place a bartel of
water on the roof of his house in case of
an emergency, Surely a tank might be
provided and so located, as not to leave
us al thc merry ofthe red demon. And
need we build "smack up" as though wc
were cramped for lhe want of a little
land? Let us have a c.ire. Insurance is
a high burden already. Let the vacant
places between buildings, if thev must Infilled in���await llie coming brick yard.
A few brick buildings sandwiched in
would make us all breathe easier. Brick
and waler will be thc salvation of the
town, and when they arc introduced
there will be general rejoicing.

There waa a pretty atill' hreer.o blowing
that day, ho cpute-iiatumlly 1 went below
and turned in. I awoke rather late Ihe
next morning and went up the companiuu
way at a jump, and without untieing tbe
rough sea went ou deok. It happened tu
be travelling upward, and I took a rapid
journey to thu starboard (tide. I secretly
thanked the ship carpenters fnr malting the
railing so strong, but could uot repress a
spiteful word against the wheelmau fnr nnt
keeping her head on, also soiu'-oue --No for

Blent the sleep of the pegged out. It was

In the morning the "kid" ocean woke
me up. At any rate I got my eyes open
and found that we were entering the (iolden

As wu were passing Meigs's wharf a steam

Tho Invalid's Bod.
One ot the most disagreeable features of
a protracted illneaa ia the more or less close
contineinen* to whioh the patient is subjected. It he is compelled to keep his bed, his
discomfort and impatience are of course
greatly intensified,
Kvon in health ft life spent in bed would
soon bteomo intolerable to the moat arrant
sluggard ; and wo can well pardon one
Whose nerves have been made irritable by
long confinement, for showing at times a
dissatisfaction with everybody and everything around bim, A little skill in the
arrangement of the bed, however, will at
least, render lhe patient's condition endurable.
First of all, we must have a mattreu
which prcsenia ;��� firm, even surface j onc
���tuffed with curled hair will exactly meet
our wants. Feuther bods are a constant
nuisance to both tlie patient ami nurse, The
mattress should bo turned and shaken at
frequent Intervals, In order that it may uot
become compacted at any point.
The shoots and limn should bo loft and
kept as ipolloiS an possible. If the aick
person is very i-km leaa,it. Is bolter 10 change
them often, as tho accumulation of wrinkles
is extremely Irritating.   Ills better to he
over-particular in this respect, since during
a long confinement tho skin becomes oxquti
itsly sensitive, ami predisposes the patient
io bod-sores.
If there fa any trouble [mm absoosses or
hemorrhages, It will ba well to place some
protection between tiie mattress and the
umler shoots.
The oovoi ings of tlifi bed should be warm
but not so weighty na in be uncomfortable,
The top spread should either he of spotless
white or of some fanoy figure which may he
changed at Intervals, ami ao ylvo relief by
pleaHintr the eyo.
It is not necessary to urge tlio propriety
of taking t he whole bed to pieces every morn-
ing, and thoroughly exposing tho mattress
ami each piece of badcloihiiijj separately to
the notion of fresh sir.
There are many oiher things which will
sugfiiat themsolvtB.ifonly woaresufficiently EmprosEod with tho Importance of mak*  11D ,., r_,ni,������.��� i} ._, ,._��� ������,t���,

days in bed.
ROYALTY   IN SUMMER. |
Bet Weuthiir Kelreait or tbe kin-** ami
Qoeent of Europe.
The venerable (Jueen Victoria, for more
than twenty years, has usually divided the
summer and autumn months betweeu Osborne and Balmoral castles.
Often when the weather iB pleasant ahe
remains out of doors all day, reading or
writing, in the shade of some line old tree.
Iutliis fashion alsu Bhe frequently discusses
h,t*r breakfast and afternoon tea.
The life led by the Prince of Wales during the summer mouths is a much busier
and more varied onc thau I. hat of hii august
mother. He usually makes tho round of
the great country houses of Kngland, where
Iub coming ia always eagerly watched for:
spends a few weeks at Hamburg, and in
September takes part in the family reunion
of King Christian at Fredenborg, How
ever, the Prince is happiest when for a few
weeka he ean bid farewell tn the world of
form and fashion, and spend a brief season
in bis country home at Sand ring hum
typical country house, pleasantly situated
in a typical Knglish county.
Kmperor William is an cnthusiaaticliuut-
er. His hunting estate in Hast Prussia is
a great forent covering some 7"* square
miles of rough and rocky territory, and
abuuuda in thc finest deur that   run on tl,<>
Continent.
Here the Kmperor loves to fodow the
ohase in the manner of the ancient founders
of his house. Por the mock hunts so popular at Potsdam he has no patience. Ho
iaa Bplendid horseman and an almost unerring marks-man, and cares ouly for the
chase requiring lhe highest qualities of
horsemanship ami marksmanship. He devotes at least a fortnight overy autumn to
thn pleasures of the chase.
The Kmperor Francis Joseph of Austria
has a comfortable but mridnsL villa at Isohl,
whero he usually passes his summer vacation. Hib habits are simple and seven*,
and hunting ia the one panime of which
ho is passionately fond.    There are ample
Will-Power and Disease.
Thero Is a groat deal to be said In favor
of what ia beat described as tho menial-
science cure for many of ihe minor ills of
life. It is possible Lo throw off weakness,
Inertness, and languor, and Infuso now life
and spirit into the failing system by mere
effort of will. True, it is hard at first, but
with every trial it comes easier, until one
may almost feel that the mind has gained a
supremacy over the body. It is certain
that the mind can, to a great extent, con-
trol tho body and drive away much that
saps vitality and undermines tho strength.
To keep ever before the mind the idea that
will-power is ono of the strongest forces iu
nature, and steadfastly refuse to yield to
weakness, is to havo gained something
that, once possessed of, no one will ever be
willing to lose.
Ventilation for Closets.
A point of almost universal neglect in
the building of our houses i" the ventilation of closets. Rvory clothes closet
Bhould contain a window for the protection
of clolhiug from mold, mildew, moths
aud disease genua, ami if lor no other
reason, as a provision against lhat un
pleasant and unwholesome smell unavoidably connected with tho average close and
unveatllated closet. The aaine rule applies
equally lo storerooms, pantriea and celling
for llie preservation of fruits, vegetables
and other kinds of food.
The Teeth and the Throat,
A correspondent writes:���The teeth
ahould be brushed and the tongue thoroughly cleansed at bedtime. This stimulates
healthy circulation in the throat, and prevents tho hearing being blunted by an
accumulation of mucus in the inner pSBsag-
o B of the ear.
Health Hints.
It ia paid that alum water is an unfailing
specific for hydrophobia.
Facial neuralgia is generally caiiBed by
nervous fatigue, by cold, or by mental excitement.
If the white of an egg ia immediately applied to a burn, it will take away tho pain
and prevent a scar.
Margaret Fuller once said, " Never talk
about your diBeaBcs." .She might have-gone
a atop farther and eaid, do not think about
them. It is sound advice that we may all
profit by, and be the healthier for it.
Plenty of fresh air aud sunshine help tn
keep the neck fair and healthful. Avoid
close tilting ueckwear, as it, is apt to cause
ungraceful lines and unsightly croases.
lJo not uae ohl magazine** or papers for
wrapping up food. Tho Austrian (ioveru-
ment has prohibited tho use of such papers,
and also of colored papers to inclose articles
intended to be eaten.
Try a bandage of hot salt outside the
face for neuralgia, fill the mouth with hot

WHY JAPAN AND CHINA FIGHT.
The Sciil or tlie Tro-ittle Is Year*. Old anil
Deep Heated.
While some disorder within Corea or
chance conflict between Chinese transporta
and Japanese cruisers may servo aa an immediate excuse for a declaration of war, the
aeat of the trouble is years old and deep
seated. Japan haa been growing by leapa
and bound) into civilization, in wealth, in
commercial activity during the last, quarter of a century. Her Influence in the
neighboring kingdom of Corea, from which
Japan ia separated by a few hundred mile1*
of sea, haa increased proportionalely, and
the Coreana themselves have come to regard thn Japanese as their natural allies
and protectors againat tho greedy giant
China, whoso only interest in her small
neighbor has boen tho amount of tribute
that could bo wrung out of her frum time
to time, Lying on the northern frontier of
China, Corea has for centuries aubmittod to
the domination of that empire, but during
the last decade the latter's assertion of the
right of suzerainty has heen spasmodic ami
frequently in dispute, Japanese intlueuce
has sprung up wherever thai of lhe Chinese
has boon cut down, and sooner or later the
ijiii-aiion muat have come to thia critical
point. Shall China or Japan shape tlio
destinies of Corea T
Japan haa evidently decided that tha
present lime ia good enough to set tie who
shall dominate the (lorcan peninsula, Japan
is ready fnr war. China never is and never
will be ready for any action. < ieographii
ally Japan has lhe whip hand. The base of
her supplies is nearer tho Corean capital
than that of any Chinese army can bo for
moi tha ; and Japan commands the aea, if
Kuropean exports in naval matters may be
believed. The Coreaus themaelves appear
io cut a small figure in tho dispute. They
are placid poople, whose necks are accustomed to yokes. Not much aid or hurt to
either belligerent are lhey likely to bo.
Their lot must be bettered if Japan is victorious. No civilized nation, except for
purely selfish reasons, cau regard the en
largeirent of China's influence wilh any*

[Mary a. bathbury,
What Bob Forgot.
Little Bob sat very atill at the breakfoat
table. He waa ao busy thinking that he
ouly ate ono aaneerful of tho big, red raap
b. rriea freah from grandpa's garden, and
covered with goldon cream from grandma'a
milk-pans.
Hob waa spending hia vacation at grandpa's form, and there wero bo many pleasant
things going on that tho Utile fellow hard
ly knew what to do first.
" Now if I ride to the mill I can't go fish
ne with Sam," bethought, shaking his little
puttied head. " Sam aaya the fishes in
the creek are big's grandpa's turkeys, and
thoy bite quicker'n 'aquitoea. Guess IT
go with him."
But juBt at that minute he aaw grandpa
and the hired men in the empty hay-
waggon ; they must be going to tho meadow
for a load of hay.
What fun it would be to ride home ou
the aoft, sweet bay, away up among the
tree lopa ! It was nicer than riding on the
elephant in the park, Bobby thought
So hia little heels made quick time along
the path to the barn, and he clambered iuto tho big waggon, over the wheel, and
cared nothing more for Sam's wonderful
fish.
" Wait a minute, doar! called grandma
from tho kitchen door.
" Uo you know any little boy who wants
to climb up into thia troo and get Bome
cherries for grandma's pies ?"
" No-o grandma," aaid littio Bob with a
very long face. " I don't kuow auy such
boy, honestly. Aren't you 'fraid be might
tumble out of the tree and break hia arms
and legs?"
"Oh, ho, Bob!" laughed grandpa,
" That's the firat time you ever were afraid
to climb a tree 1"
Lazy Hob hung his head, but he did not
givo up his point.
���*'Sides, I don't think cherry piea are
very good," he argued. '* Kiud o' Bour and
puckery." ,     ,
���' You'll eat 'em faat enough when dinner
lime cornea," said grandpa,
������ Well, never mind, Bobby, boy," aaid
gentle grandma, seeing how sober tho little
fellow looked. " I'll get along without the
cherries. Co and havo a nice ride, dearie ;
you can't be a little boy but once."
So the long wagon went jolting and
rattling away so faat that Bob had to oateh
hold of tho high rack to keep Irom tumbling
over. .
Tho meadow looked ao pretty with tho
green hay-cocks dotted evenly over it,
like wigwams in an Indian village, Bobby
fancied.
The hired men jumped out of the wagon
and pitched in oue cook after another with
their long pitchforks.
Grandpa arranged the hay in the wagon
bo that tho load would balanco well, and
littio Bob'a seat rose higher and higher aa
the wagon waa filled.
Put somehow Bobby waB not having
very good time. lie could not help think*
ing that grandma waa always ready to
leave her work anil hunt for his missing
balls and whistles, or to give him a dough,
nut when he was hungry���whioh, to tell
tho truth, was moat of tho tlmo from breakfast to dinner, and from dinner to tea.
Ho remembered, too, how yesterday he
bad poked a hole in a hornets' neat, juat
to see what it waa made of, and how the
hornets' atiugs hurt; and how grandma
cured them with soda and told him stories
till he forgot the pain.
"Say, grandpa, iet mo out," aaid Bobby.
"I want to go to the houae. I forgotaome*
thin'."
"Forgot what? Your knife? Here, take
mine," said grandpa, fumbling in his
pocket.
"No, thank you, grandpa," aaid Bob.
"Something else,"
"Something to eat I'll warrant!" aaid
grandpa, pulljngouta paper bag. "Grand*
ina said you'd bo hungry, bo sho put
you up a lunch."
Bob looked into the bag and aaw it was
full of grandma's nice, sugary cookies in the
shape of little rings and heirti. He felt
more ashamed than over, and he could not
have eaten one of those cookies if he had
been starving.
"Oh 'tisn't���that, grandpa!" he said,
with a littio shake in hia voice, "I f*forgot what lots of thinga grandma does for
Hoy? Woll, I iruesa you did, " said
grandpa, "Thoao cherries muat, be tired
of waiting for you."
So with grandpa's help Bob alid down to
tho ground ami ran homo like a squirrel.
In avery short time grandma was surprised to aeo a small boy ooming in at the
wood-shed door, with a big pail of ripe,
led cherries.
And, grandma," said Bob," I won't forget again, you'll seo."

Prom tho Glasgow Echo.
The caae of " Little Nell," whoae miraculous cure was reported in the newspapers,
with a subsequent lettor from the Rev.
Samuel Harding, is but one in a series of
similar cases in Glasgow. The latest is
that of Miss Lizzie Duncan, a young woman
who has been anatohed baok to life. She
was in what is termed a " decline"���wasting away by inches before the eyes of her
parents, and her Bad condition Beems to
have been known to a number of people.
Consequently when she waa found to have
-escaped tho threatened death, and to be,
apparently, aa well aa anyone in Glasgow,
a tremendous impetus was given to the
prevalent talk, and an Koho reporter waa
directod to mako a searching investigation,
with the result that this strange story waa
entirely confirmed.
Arriving at 20S Stirling Road, the reporter waa conducted into the presence of
Mrs, Duncan by a ' rosy-cheeked young
Woman, who proved to be Mias Duncan,
who looked in no way like an invalid.
"Thia ia tho lassie," Baid the mother.
"Heaven knowa that a miracle haa been

her entirely, and she appeared to lie as

ahe said, ' Oh, mother, I oanna riae today/ and bofore ahe hail got out the words
her whiteness became liko that of a corpse,
and ahe fell away into a faint. 1 sent for

When he aaw hor again ahe had grown
worse and the doctor said, ' The poor

that poor Lizzie would not live long. Thore
waa no color In her face. She was waisting
away, her cheek bones sticking through
as if they would break the akin. Her arms
anil legs were juat bones. The doctor aaid,
'Little may stand tho winter, but if ahe
doea, that will bo all.' One day, however
1 chanced to read of several cases in whioh
dying persons had boen restored to life by
a new scientific method���some pills, not
like other medioine, b.it altogether of extraordinary virtue, called Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People, I aaid to my
husband, 'In the name of Cod let's try Dr.
Williama' Pink Pilla.' Well, before the
firat box waa empty there was a marked
improvement. She persevered and when
she had fini-ihed her fifth box she was perfectly well, and there is not now a stronger
young woman in the townhead of Glaagow
though at one time she waa a living skeleton. You can ask auy of the neighbors,"
said Mrs. Duncan in conclusion, "or any
person in tho atreet aud they will confirm
my atory."
"I am stronger than over I was in my
life," added the daughter,' 'yet I can hardly
describe how ill I was. 1 was certainly
dying. 1 could neither go upuor down
stairs; I was afraid to walk on account of
the fluttering sensation at my heart. I
took Dr. Williama' Pink Pills aa my mother

A GREAT RAILWAY.
I! Will lie More Than Three Tlnirs tlie
Length or Our tiiiindlaii 1'itrlllr Rati
way.
The great Siberian railway, now noaring
completion, must be regarded as one of tho
greatest enterprises of the century, and
will attract considerable attention by reason of the moat important commercial,
political and strategic objects it is designed
to serve. Iu length it will exceed by moro
than three timea our transcontinental Canadian Pacific Railway. Besides connecting
Vladivostok, its eastern terminus on the
Paolfio, with Moscow, distant 9,500 miles,
it will reach porta on the Black Sea, thQ
Caspian anil the Baltic, At present the
British merchant fleet for the moat part
carry on the commerce of China, Japan and
India with Kurope, but the new railway
will, in all likelihood, largely alter the route
of this commerce and make the Russians it
beneficiaries. In twelve or thirteen days
it will carry gooda from the Baltic to
Vladivostock, aa againat the aix or eight
weeka now required. The tea and silks of
China would go west via tne Siberian Kail
way rather than by way of the Suez
Canal or the Cape. The railway will,moreover, vitalize the resources of vaat regions
now torpid for want of communications.
The empire ia wanting in arteries of commerce, It haa about 29,000 miles of railroad. Ita navigable streams are numerous,
but by reahon of extremes of heat and cold
they are navigable aa a rule only in
the spring and autumn. The Black Sea
maybe blockedby Turkey or Britain. The
rivers of Siberia emptying into the Arctic
Ocean are practically of no value for transportation except In their upper course and
foi part of the year. The isolation of
vast areas of Siberia practically destroys
their great value fcr purposes of agriculture
and mining With better means of communication population would in Russia
llow east, just as in the United States and
Canada the construction of transcontinental
lines caused it to flow west. The natural
resources are there: accessibility will bring
them speedy development. Already the
animal product of gold and silver in Siberia
is very large, though its production is matU
expensive from want of modern means of
transportation, but with the building of
the Siberian railway the product will probably bi much increased. The wealth of
the region lobe traversed in iron, coal,salt
and precious atones is well known. It
wilt bo the moons of stimulating the wheat
producing industry of Russia and still further intensifying the competition in Kuropean markets from that quarter.

After all, I thought to myself, why should
I not captivate and marry torn* young officer? I must tell him everything, ol course,
as I did poor Mr. Meadowsweet. But he
will have no religious scruples in the matter
and we may very well live very happily together. Besides, I oan find the money for
hia exchange if he ahould aver wish to do
so, or if he liked, we should have quite
enough to enable him to retire comfortably,
and to busy himself, if time hang* heavily
on hie hands, in the yeomanry or the
militia, although it would be best, of course,
to persuade him to cut the thing altogether, and settle down quietly somewhere,
Thia, however, aa I felt, was discounting
the future somewhat too liberally ; and yet
I waa not altogether without reasonable
ground fur my speculations, inasmuch as a
certain Captain Malt-ay had during the
evening paid me a degree of attention
whioh, although not effusive, had yet been
more than was strictly necessary.
I waa full of theae thoughts, or rather
vague plana, as I brushed out my hair for
the night, and discovered to my horror,
not that it waa turning gray, but that its
extreme tie* sadly needed eiogeing. Then
I drew the curtains, for tha aun wu shut-
in** pleasantly, and wu soon enough faat
asleep. I believe really that dancing, if
you thoroughly enjoy it, tires you more
completely than even riding or skating.
Captain Maltby had uked me if he might
call, and I had aaid he might, provided it
wu not that day, for ho had preferred hia
request during the cotillion and long after
midnight; so I lay iu bed with an euy
mind until I felt thoroughly refreshed, and
then proceeded to improve mv personal
' appearance af lor the most approved prinoi*
pies.
Firat, I went down to the beach and had
a delirious plunge in the rising tide. Then
I had a substantial French breakfast or
Knglish lunch. Then I had round the
victoria, and went for a pleuant sunny
drive among the breezy uplands, rich with
tho atrong aromatio odor ef Norwegian
pines. Than I spent the reat of the day
quietly at home over a novel, and, when
the ninon rose, felt ao fresh and invigorated that I believe if I had had a maid u
escort I ahould have been tempted into a
ramble on the cliffs,
I purposely sat up late, not meaning to
riso loo early, and dressed myself the next
morning with more than usual care. My
gown was a pretty French Surah, It waa
of a delicate shade, adding to my apparent
height, and fitted me perfectly, I wore nothing in the way of jewelry but a plain brooch
and aolitairos, A broad belt round my waist
completed the toilette, and my hair wu
drcased as plainly aa might be. Then I
filled the room with flowers, and sat in my
easy-chair with a volume of Tennyson.
The officers of Her Majesty's service regard Tennyson muoh u clergymen regard
Milton. They are aware he ought to be
read ; they are all ready at any moment to
declare moat solemnly that they read him
daily, but they have a certain wholesome
terror of people who actually do read him.
For themselves, they would be about aa
likely to read Tupper's "Proverbial Philo-
ophy " or Longfellow's "Evangeline,"
But I am not among those who are indignant at these conventional and harmless
little frauds, Il would bo a terrible world
if we all told the exact truth, almost as bai
a world aa it ull of ua in it were to lie con*
slst-ently through thick and thin, like the
Very Reverend   the Dean of Southwick.
When Captain Maltby arrived bringing
with him a Mr. Daltnn, a brother officer,
to act as a sort of aide-de-camp, I wu
quite ready to receive them. They stop-
pel for tho conventional half-hour, aud
partook of tin conventional glass of
sherry.
I need not dwell upon our conversation.
I sot the bull rolling myself, kept it rolling,
nud took very apeuul care that it Bhould
roll everywhere iu general, and nowhere in
particular. When they left, Oaptain
Maltby half aaked permission to call again,
and half expressed hia intention of doing
ao. Not bad diplomacy for a young ollicer
in thc Heavies I
I, who had studied diplomacy in ita
most Haute Ecolo, and sat at tho feet of ita
moat accomplished master, replied, in my
pleuantcat manner, that Eutampton wu
a small place, and that I Bhould be very
pleased if we met again.
That wo ahould meet again, and before
long, I intended to take vury particular
care.
And now that I have brought matters
to this stage, I muat condense my narrative
a littio. Of course I met Captain Maltby
several timea, Occasionally he would pass
me with hU regiment. He was alwaya well
mounted, and it did mc good to look at him.
It is mere affectation for any woman to
protend that she does not tako pleasure in
the sight of ii handiome man. And Captain
Maltby, who had a good seat, and rode a
splendid charger, was aa smart an officer as
ever led a troop.
Sometimes   we   would   meet   upon   ths
fiaradu, or on the pier, when it would have
ooked like mere coquetry to avoid his
company. I need not aay how wide is the
difference between a Cathedral oity and a
garrison town. Kven when the two are
combined, as fa often thc oaae, there la a
distinctly religious line of caste which
separates the tirahmins or priests,
with their wives and families, from the
shatryaa or warrior.*.

CHAPTKR XXVII.
Before a month had passed, Captain Maltby was a regular visitor. An officer of his
age and in a crack regiment is a better man
ofthe world than any ecclesiastic or diplomatist. He was making love to me as
if he knew that I kuew it. Ho had also the
sense to he aware tha*. he could uot continue
thia pastime indefinitely ; aud without pretending to exactly read hia thoughts at any
given date, I am sure he very aoon oame to
the conoluaiou that he would either have to
marry me or else to give me up altogether.
Onu morning In* called artr ad with a jook
which I had expressed a wish to read, and
whioh waa not within the resources of either
M u. lie or Smith, I forget now what it wu,
but can just remember that It was a volume
of travel in Central Africa, somewhat out
of date, and of scientific rather than of
genoral intercut.
I thanked him for the trouble he had
takeu in a manner which invited him to
atop; and he took the hint, while he also declined my permission to smoke a cigarette
if he cared to do so.
"The fact is, Mrs. (iascoigne," he said,
"I oame to talk for a few minutes, if you
do not mind, and nut to smoke or to indulge
in your marvelous sherry. I want to ask
you to keep a Becretof mine, if you will."
"Secrets are dangerous things," 1 answered seriously and seeing that he was in
earnest. No one knows that fact better
than myself. If you choose to tell mo your
aeorot it willbeas safe with mo an with your
man of business ; but 1 shall decline to givo
you my advice over it."
"It ii not exactly yonr advice I wanted,"
be replied, "although 1 will own that I nm
in a difficulty and want you to help me out
of it, Inonosenso 1 nm a littio hampered
by the fact that, what you call your own
socret, I happen lo know already* But It's
for lhat very reason that 1 am anxious to
tell you miue. Thn ono thine which stands
in my way and makes mo feel awkward is
that I know from what I have heard that
you are very well off. Now for myself I
am cadet ofa poor house with juat enough
beyond my pay to enable mu to get on,
while even that fa not certain���my father
  my allowance at any moment."
_ had felt certain from tbe first that he
wu a gentleman and utterly incapable of
anything mean or dishonorable; and yet I
{began to wonder uneasily whether he might
not have been losing at play or have fouud
hia way into the money-lender's hands, and
be under the idea that I could possibly help
him.   So I answered cautiously -.
������ Perhaps I am not so well off u you
suppose. A woman by herself oan live very
economically- in fact for next to nothing,
aod (I said thia with a laugh) I have no expensive tastes. But do not let anything
that you may fanuy you know about me
hinder what yon have to aay. I am curious
to hear it, and pleased to be taken into
your confidence.
His faoe wu ac tanned with the sun that
I could only guess how the blood flushed
to his cheeks by seeing the skin round the
roots of his hair turn a vivid orimson,
"We are at cross purposes, I fancy," he
Mid, "and if we talk muoh longer I shall
get bewildered and perhapa make a fool of
myself. What I want to ask you, Mrs.
Oucoigne, ia for something which I want
very muoh moro than money. A reasonable check of mine, I am glad to say, is
good nt any time in Craig's Court; and
unless I want to run into figures which I
have not yet touched, Cox's would see me
through. I want you to do something else
for me���something quite different In faot,
what I want is to u> you if you will marry
me, and so make me the happiest and
proudest man, not in the Queen a Musketeers, but In the whole service."
It waa my time now to turn red ; and I
think, if I can judge by the flush whioh I
felt rushing to my face, that my own performance in thia respect fairly eclipsed his
and wu fully u sincere and genuine.
"You cannot possibly know all about me,"
I said, "or else you would never have uked
me what you have."
"But you're wrong," he answered. "I
do know, and so for tho matter of that doea
our ohief, and so do all of us. And we are
all of one opninion about the matter ; and
the ohief, who guts very violent when ho is
angry, swears that old Sir Henry ought to
bo mado to run the gauntlet. And I'll tell
you another thing, Lady Craven. The
chief's wife sides with the chief; she la
Madame la Colonelle, and no mistake ! She
ia a power, let mc tell you ; and the sub*
alterna arc far more afraid of her than of
the Colonel himself. Her own expression
is that tho whole thing wu a burning shame;
and we all agree with her. only that we use
shorter language. Now look here, if you
think I am exaggerating in the least, 1'il
back if I tell her what's happened she'll
come and oall on you to-morrow afternoon,
and then yon see there can't posaibly be any
mistakes, oan there T
For the life of me I oould not help laughing, I wonder why it is that all men who
are worth their salt are, when you once
move them, u simple and aa blunt u
school boys.
I began tn think, in a strange whirl of
ideu, of the great Duke of Wellington and
of his memorable utterance about Napoleon's bones, which, by some whimsical
association of ideas, were suggested to me
by the skeleton in my own cupboard, and
I fairly burst out again Into a hearty peal
of merriment in whioh my guest and suitor
joined.
"Well", I answered, "let us wait and ace
if she calls, and���let me see���you may come
again this day week if >ou like, only you
must distinctly understand that I do not
premise to be in, and cannot indeed promise
that I shall be in town at nil. I am, aa you
seem to know, my own miatreaa; and for
that very reason my movements are uncertain, or, u unkind people would say, capricious."
He rose to hia feet as I rose to mine, I
held out my hand, but he did not take it.
"I think,'' he said, "it would be only kind
of you to say something or other to me today ; to give me some ��ort of an idea. You
can't tell���I am sure you can't tell���how
much I love you, and how deeply my heart
ia set on this. I'll sell out if you like, or
exchange for India, or do anything. In
fact I ought to have told you beforo thiB
that I would aell out at onco if you didn't
like the regiment, only I really didn't
think of it, I somehow let it go without
saying.    It waa very stupid of me."
"It waa not at all stupid," I answered,
'and I quite believe all you have told me ;
and now, you know, I really think that I
must be going Tor my afternoon drive."
"Rut you will surely give mo aome sort
of answer before I go. I think 1 have a
right to uk that at least."
'But I can't givo you an answer," I re*
plied ; "at least not the answer which I
suppose you want me to give, J like you
very much, but I am alao determined that
you ahall not leave the regiment on my
account. If I am to marry you at all it
mu��t not involve your leaving the regiment.
On that point my mind ia made up ; and aa
wo quite understand one another it is no
good discus' ing :no matter further."
"But I don't want to dismiss the matter,"
he urged. "It doaen't need discussing. I
only want you to aay yea. Surely you can
say that at onoe aa well aa the day after
to-morrow."
1(l can't say it at all until this day week,
aud then, if I intend to aay it, I shall lie
here to do so. All I can say at present is,
that I hope with all my heart I ahull be
here."
After thia there was clearly nothing left
for him, but to go ; so he took my hand,
" I have at! the faitli in the world
you," he said, "and I am quite aure of
Mrs. Martyn, and I ahall leave you with
an easy heurt, although the houra wilt be
horrible long,"
Now Mra. Martyn was the Colonel's wife,
of whom we had already beeu speaking
under her more formal designation, and 1
had mado up my mind vory fully that, if
she did in tact call upon mc, and, after
hearing what I had to toll her, on asauring
ine that ahe kuew it already, left me upon
cordial tonus, I would marry Captain
Maltby as aoon u he pleased; and if she
did not, 1 was equally determined that
Maltby ahould not have, u I knew muat
inevitably be the caae, to leave the regi-
nu nt on my account. So that once again
mattera simplified themselves for me in
what my father would have termed a distinctly providential manner aud indeed
I began lo feel that at last in my life the
chances of the game were Bottling in my
favor.
So long u I could marry Captain Malt*
by without driving him from the regiment,
I wanted, and iu tact most sincerly wished,
to do ao; but I was equally determined that
no power on earth should induce me to in
any way cross or oven alter the course of
his life, I had had one unhappy marriage,
and I wu determined that under nn circumstances would I allow myself to be
led into a second.
For however much a man may love his
wife, he oannot possibly love her u either
he or she would wish if sho haa in any way
crossed hiB oareer instead of having aided
it and accelerated its success.
Marriage is a partnership in many more
senses than one ; and I was moat distinctly and resolutely determined that about
my second partnership there ahould be no
mistaki whatever at the outset. Everything must be entirety understood and arranged, or else I should remain Lady Cra-
ven, however muchlmightdeaire tobe rid
of the hateful name,
So, without another word as to the future,
I again wished Captain "Maltby good-bye,
and paid him the compliment of watching
him down the stairs. Then I sat down for
a whilo and thought matters over, or, to be
more precise, reviewed them, for they now
lay entirely beyond my own control, and
upon the knees of tie Fates.
The result of the review was upon the
whole reassuring. Captain Maltby was
no hoy. Ho wu an officer of some standing, close upon his majority, and a man nf
the world. It was outof the question to
suppose that he had been intentionally
misleading me, and it   was almost equally
out of the question to suppose that he wm
uudcrany deluaimion his own account.
The marvelous thing to my mind waa
how tbey could have found out about mc;
but I think that even here I hit upon the
right solution.
In referring to the clergy List I found
that the rectory of the pariah in which the
barracks were situated, and in the parish
church of which the troops attended service, wu one of considerable value, and
oddly enough, or rather not at all oddly, if
my conjecture waa right, wu in the gift of
the Dean and Chapter of Salchester, who,
on the occasion of the lut vacancy which
had happened just before my arrival in
Easthampton, 'had appointed to it one of
their Minor Canons, a worthy middle-aged
gentleman with a fussy, mischief-making
wife.
I felt that I might be doing this good lady
a very great injustice; but 1 at once jumped
to the conotnaion that she had heard all
about my history from her husband and
had repeated it, with comments and additions of her own, to the wives of every
married officer in the regiments, including
of course Mrs. Martyn herself.
But the matter wu too trifling for me to
trouble myself with it. I knew my father
to be sufficiently spiteful and vindictive to
do me any injury that lay in his power,
even in the most roundabout way ; and to.
wards the michlef-making gossip herself,
my feeling wu one of contempt, rather then
of irritation, and certainly had in it not a
traoe of anything so serious u a desire
for revenge.
CHAPTER XXVIIL
Next day Mrs. Martyn called at an
orthodox hour, and in orthodox state. She
wu very ohatty, and with a strong inucu-
line element in hor which is almost invariably to be found in the wives of officers
who accompany their husbands on service,
and is, to my thinking, extremely pleasant.
Except that ahe wm educated and of a
good county family, ahe somewhat reminded one of Thackeray's Mrs. O'Dowd, with
al) her frankness, bonhomie, and entiro imperturbability.
Before she had beeu in the room three or
four minutes, I wu entirety at my ease, I
can only give the general impression which
what ahe had to aay left upon my mind.
As she chattered away, doing nearly all the
talk herself.she gave me to understand that
the ladies of the garrison, and more especially of the regiment.had taken to me as
kindly u had the men, and that I waa
generally a persona grata.
" Yon seo, Lady Craven���or muat I say
Gasaoigne���when the  men  are   on
Mrs.
parade, or on field duty, oi at mess, we
have nothing to do amongst ourselves but
to chatter���tne Colonel calls il cackling���so
of course we chattered about you. Firat
wo began about your jewels, and 1 needn't
tell you we envied them. Now that the
dear old daya of loot are over, you don't
aee jewels, like yours at a garrison ball.
They are superb, fine enough for a Begum.
Ancl then yon know wo began to talk about
all kinds of thinga, and it waa settled at
last that I should oome here to-day aa a aort
of deputation, or aa what you may call the
oldest inhabitant."
I thanked her very cordially.
"You will have us all here before long, and
you wilt find that there are quite enough
of us to keep you lively, if not indeed a
round dozen too many. And do what you
like with them, but don't play poker at
afternoon tea; take lhat hint from a friend.
It's a bad habit, and it growa upon you.
One of our yoiin,* fellows actually had to
leave because his wife would pin, poker.
She. ruined him in about aix months after
she took to it."
I replied that I did not know hew to
play poker, and had uo intention of learning.
Welt" ahe said, "if you keep clear of
cards, you won't do much harm among us,
or come to much either. We are not a
mischief-making set like the old women of
both sexes in a Cathedral town, and we can
enjoy ourselves in our own way. Now
there iB one of us, she'll tell you all about
it herself, regularly rides her husband's
aecond charger with the garrison drag,
and makes him come with her. I believe
she'd ride in our regimental steeplechases
if tho committee would allow her to enter ;
and yet, bar her passion for horses, or
rather for riding, for she knows no moro of
horse-llesh than the man in the moan, she's
u quiet a little soul as ever lived, and I'm
sure you'll like her."
I told her that I could ride a little along
a good turupikc road, or over level turf,but
that I was not at all likely to be aeen anywhere near the tails of the drag hounds,
" Ah, well 1 I didn't know *. and yet you
ought to rido too. You'd look well on a
horae. One or two of our fellows have said
ao, Maltby more particularly."
I felt the eoler rising to my faoe, and ahe
could not have helped noticing it.
" He's a capital fellow, Malthy; one of
the beat in the regiment; popular with the
Colonel and with everybody else. Only,
unluckily for him, he hasn't much money,
and not muoh chance of any that I can see.
His father Is a judge who married a woman
with a lot of money. The money,however,
ie all tied up, and will go to the elder son,
who made a try aa a barrister, but somehow
failed. They tell me he hu less brains in
bis wholo head than our man has in the tip
of his tittle finger,
"And ho Maltby only has what hiB father
allows him. It is not much, but the old
man could cut it off at any time, and then,
I ainaure I don't know what Maltby would
do, 1 suppose he'il have to exchange and
go to India, but that iB uot ao easy as it
used lo bu ; besides, he'd lose all hla promotion. Nowadays, at! the fellows are red
hot to go to India, and shake the rupeo
tree. I don't know what the regiment
would do without him, I'm sure. He's uot
exaotly what you call the life and soul of
it, for he's the quietest fellow going. But
he's one of the host Uked men in it anyhow ;
aud we shouldn't be ourselves without him."
I said, in judiciously general terms, that
Captain Maltby was a sort of man whom it
was impossible to help liking, and that I
could perfectly understand bis popularity;
and I aaid something alao about a regiment
being very much like a public school, a
place in which every man was taken for
what he was worth, so that popularity was
one of the very best testimonials, if not
quite the best that a man could have,

Lord Aberdeen's Estates.
Boforo the British Royal Commission on
Agriculture, presided over by Mr. Shaw
Lofevra, Mr. lloorge Muirhead, factor for
Lord Aberdeen's estates iu Aberdeenshire,
in the course of his evidence, said that the
acreage of Lord Aberdeen's estate was
53,000 acrea, the rental being about ��40,000
a year. Since 1872 Lord Aberdeen had
spent over ��200,000 in improvements nn the
estate. In 1SH0 ��'21,000 was returned to
the tenants owing to the disastrous season
of IS".); in lHHil, ��">,0(18 was returned; and
iu 1892, ��2,0'}!). In 188(1 a revaluation was
offered to evory tcnani, and to those who
accepted it it brought a reduction of about
22 per cent, tut nothing like alt the tenants
asked for a revision. The new rents under
the revision were lo stand for five years. In
1890 these rentB were raised 11 per cent.
Alt the tenants were under lease, Ho gave
details of tho number of years'rent at 18s
an acre which it took to equip holdings of
different sizes, ranging from ��120 for holdings of five acrea to ��2,300 for holdings of
600 acres. He had at least a hundred applications for farms lying at his oflice that
day. The farms which came to be let were
generally let for less than some applicants
were willing to give. Judging from tho
regularity with which rents were paid, h(
had no reason to suppose that the agricul*
tural depression wns felt in Aberdecnuhirc,
His opinion was that the depression existing generally was duo to the contraction of
the currency and the consequent appreciation of gold. The only remedy ho could
auggeat was an additiou to the aupply of
gold.
Rules for Married People.
An English periodical gives a list of rules
for married people, which ought to prove
quite as interesting to American wives, u
to those who live "across the water
The laat word is dangerous. Husband
and wife should uo more fight to get it
than they should struggle for the possession
of a lighted tomb-shell.
Married people should study each other's
weak points, u skaters look ont for weak
parts on the ice in order to keep off them.
Ladies who marry for love ahould remember that the union of angels with women
hu been forbidden since the flood.
The wife is the sun of the social system.
Unless she attracts, there is nothing to keep
heavy bodies like husbands, from flying
into space.
Wives, be lenient to tbe marital cigar.
The smoke always hides the moat disagreeable part of the battle.
Liberty of action la won by mutual concessions.
The marriage ring is a circle whioh husband and wife have the problem Ht them
of making all square.
Don't trust too muoh to good temper
when you get into nn argument. The
Indians produce fire by rubbing of the
dryest sticks.
Sugar Is the substance most universally
diffused through all natural products. Let
married people take a hint Irom ���.his provision of nature.
Salads.
Ai a general thing, salads are not appreciated by the farmer's wife, although she
haa a variety of material that can be used
for thiB purpose, as milk, cream, butter
aud eggs. When a receipt calls for olive
oil, melted butter can be substituted with
satisfactory results. Several salad dress*
ings can be mado of home material, and one
is sour cream dressing.

and mix with a dressing made u follows:
Take thc yolks of two eggs, one teaspoonful
of salt, half a teaspoonful of white pepper,
a teaspoonful of mustard,and two-thirds of
a oup of melted butter, and three table*
spoonfuls of vinegar, beat the egga, Bait,

Hints.
Castor oil, applied once a day for several
weeks, will never fail to remove warts.
The lustre of morocco may bo restored
by applying the white of an egg with a
sponge.
Bent whalebones can be restored and
uaed again by simply soaking iu water a
few hours, then drying them.
A thin coating of three parts lard melted with one part resin, applied to stoves
and grates, will prevent their ruating in
summer.
To dry shoes quickly, which have become wet, without injuring the leather,
heat some pebbles in a pan and insert
them in the shoes.
An apple, kept In a cake-box, will koep
moderately rich cake moist for a great
length of time, if tha apple is renewed
when withered.
A little bag of mustard laid on the top
of mustard jars will prevent vinegar from
becoming mouldy, if the pickles have been
put up in vinegar that hu not been boiled.
Oil stains nn carpets, if notion is taken
at once upon the oil being spilled, may be
removed by scattering corn-meal upon
them. Sweep up, and repeat until the oil
is absorbed.
To have cheese oloth, scrim or lace curtains retain their creamy look, add a small
quantity of saffron tea (made by steeping
saffron in water) to the water in which they
are rimed.
To keep lemons for yeara, grate the yellow part of the lind, and squeeze the juice :
and to every four lemons a pound of augar,
and put in glass stopped jars, Those are
equal to fresh ones in winter for pies, and
can also be used for lemonade.
To remove stains from marble, take two
parts of common soda, ono part of pumice
atone hnd one part of finely powdered
ohalk, Sift through a fine sieve, and mix
with water. Hub thia well over the marble, and the stain will disappear. Then
wuh the marble over with soap and
water.
If pegged boots are occasionally dressed with petroleum between the soles and
upper leather, they will not rip. Ifthe
soles of boots and shoes are dressed with
petroleum, they wilt reslatwet, and wear
well. The pegs, it is said, are not affected by dryness after being welt saturated
with the liquid.
To restore alpaca and merino, sponge the
right side with clear, cold coffee which has
been strained through a piece of black
calico or muslin (a bit of black mualiu is
better ihan a aponge to dampen with),
and iron with a hot iron immediately on
the wrong side; it will "look good aa new."
To prevent stair carpets fiom wearing
place a slip of paper under them, at and
over the edge of every stair, which is the
part where they wear first. The strips
should be, within an inch or two, as long
as the carpet ia wide, and about four or
five inches in breadth. A piece of old carpet answers the purpose better than paper,
if you have it.
A TAX ON BACHELORS.
A Family Ham Takes Upon Hlmselfa Pule
lie Service Which lhe nark-dor Bhlrks.
No form of taxation oould In fairer than
the one proposed by Mayor Cox, of Ottawa-
on bachelors, if only it were possible to
devise some way to hit them according to
their means and according to their deaertB.
The difficulty of doing thia is, we presume,
the chief reason why suoh a tax haa not
always been resorted to in underpeopled
countries, aa it wu with surprising effect
in the early days of Canada. On thia point
the Montreal Witness says .���-In any country he who brings up a family takes upon
him a public service which the bacheto
shirks, In addition to the serious natural
burdena which attach themselves to this
public service the state steps in and taxes
.him in a variety of ways from which tho
bachelor is comparatively free. In countries
whioh are seeking increase of population���
and what country does not record with
pride any increase in its population���the
value of the service rendered by lho family
man is obvious ;but even supposo a country
to be overpeopled it will bo generally agreed
that it is better for the country to occupy
its situations with natives who are loyal to
its very soil and who are hred to ita institutions and understand and love them,
than that they ahould fall to strangers who
to their dying days harbor the sense that
the country ia not theirs, and who often
never beome fully transplanted.
You will hear peoplo who have been
twenty yeara in Canada, enjoying its best
privileges and positions, still talking patronizingly, perhaps disparagingly, about "ynu
in Canada," The natural condition of man
is that of a head of a family, and no other
is good for him or for the community. "It
is uot good for man to be alono,' is tho dictum with which tho Scripture starts out,
aud throughout the Old Testament a man
without a wife does not seem to havo been
imagined. The dilliculty about the bachelor tax is that though it would be a standing inducement to got married, it would in
some cases hinder thia end by making it
harder for a man to lay by enough upou
which to got married prudently. As applied to young men at the beginning of
thoir aavings it would do mom harm than
good. Many men aro kept from marrying
because of their responsibility to their
parents and their families. Nothing so
worthy as this should be tho cuhject of
taxation. Again, the only fair bachelor
tax would be onc proportioned to income,
and there is nothing more difficult to apply
fairly or even wiih common honesty than
an income tax. A poll-tax would have lo
be comparatively light not to le u hardship
to many. A tax rn bachelors, if itincludcil
grass widowers, would catch John Chinaman on a very fair ground, that of not
being tied to tho soil by family tics.

CHINA'S NAVY DESCRIBED.
lu AccMUut ur tar War   til*||i�� I.,ileilglltfl
le Ihe Middle klitf-iloni
Half a century ago China's navy consisted
ot a countless fleet uf high prowed, piratical looking wooden junks, with antiquated
muzzle loaders. To-day she possesses a
complete navy of the modern type, cousin
ting of armor-ctada, cruisers, gunboats and
torpedo boats, enabling her, so far u the
appearance of her ships is concerned, to
rutile it among the leading navies in
Pacific waters.
The Chinese fleet consists of the North
Coast Squadron, the Foo Chow Squadron'
the Shanghai Flotilla and the Canton Flotilla. Of these the first ia by far the most
important. The concentration of tbe uav*'
strength of China in the North is due to
two thinga- that the gulf of Pechilli Is the
invaders' road to the capital, and that it is
the Viceroy of the Northern Province, the
famous Li Hung Chaug, who ia the actual
leader in organizing the national defence.
The North Coast Squadron consists of five |
aea goin? armor clads, two of 7,230 tons
each, two of 2,850 torn eaoh and one of 2,320
tons; three deck protected cruisers of 2,300
or 2,300 tona, three torpedo cruisers, a fleet
of over thirty torpedo boats, and eleven
gunboats raging from 3,255 to 440 tona,
THR GERMAN  MILT  CRl'I3ERfl.
Nor are the two Stettin cruisers, the
Lai-Yuen and King Yuen, much less formidable. They are somewhat heavier in
tonnage and lighter in guns than their
English aister ships ; but their speed, with
engines, indicating f��,"00 horse power at
forced draught, is given at only fifteen and
a half knots per hour, and experts have
pronounced their fittings inferior to the
ships from the Messrs. Armstrong's yard.
Like the Knglish built cruisers, they are
built with bulkheads. They have each tw��
Krupp HJ inch 12-ton breechloading guns'
woi ked on a turntable forward, protected
by a barbette of ,1-inoh steel, and two (j-inch
l.-ton guna, mounted on carriages amid-

tons. They are fitted with exactly the same
torpodo tube arrangement u the Arm
strong cruisers, and have a similar ox ten*
Give and formidable auxiliary arrangement
of HotchktBs and Catling guns. They also,
on account of their small draught, could be
navigated where only auch vessels u the
Heroine and Mutine (screw composite
sloops of tlie British navy, of only 1,130
tons and 1,12.1 horse power, with a oonsid.
erable weaker armament) could be successfully manii'iivrcd. Each of these four
cruiBera possesses many features certain to
be of great utility in warfare. Powerful
electric lighting apparatus, both for search
purposes aud tor facilitating ihe working
of tne guus at night, may be enumerated
among those special advantages,
KPFIi'IKXCY Ot THK i*IUNF.9R FLEET.
When Captain Lang, of the British
Royal Navy, was permitted to leave their
aervico four yeara ago, it was generally considered that the Chinese naval authorities
had committed a fatal mistake. The organization of the nascent fleet had made astonishing progress under that devoted officer,
and it was hia own opinion that another
two or threo years of unremitting labor
would have brought the Chinese navy up
to the point of being able to hold its own
on the high Beas. When, therefore, he was
intrigued out of the service by his own subordinates, who proved themselves for that
occasion stronger than the atrongeat Minister of the Empire, jt was predicted that
the Chinese flettt would booh lose its training and degenerate into a disorderly mass
of corruption. These apprehensions have
not as yet been realized. The Chinese
fleet hu not only kept the aea, but to outward appearances Iim made considerable
irogross alnco 1890. Without a single
European ollicer, except a German engineer
hero and a < lerman gunner there, the fleet
has made extensive oruisos every year, free
from acrid-jut of any kind. List May it

by the Viceroy, Li Hung Chang, and another Imperial Commissioner, (leneral Ting,
and knocked about tho various ports in the
flv.lt ol Pechilli in a way to tost, at least
tho efficiency of engines and boilers and the
mau.i'uvring skill ot lhe officers. Tho ships
wero moved about in perfect order. Both
in target practice under atcam and in evolutions in open water they acquitted ihem
selves as woll hb poasible, and In ten days'
operations not tho slightest hitch occurred.
The Viceroy, Li Hung Chang, who is well
aware the more possession ot costly ships
and modern guns goes only a little way toward affording natural aecurily, seems lo
havo the crows as well trained as possible.
Tho schools of instruction, under European
ollieers, are vigonmniy aupportod, the mon
aro woll drilled and thc scientific branches
arc thoroughly looked after. Both officers
and mon, huwevor, aro handicapped by
having not only to learn, but practically lo
carry on lheir work in a foreign language,
This, in lho navy, is English. The signal
book, compiled by Captain Lang, is in English, and the drill books, in which the
firoper drill for every guu in the aervico haa
icen elaborated by Lieutenant lioiirchinr,
arc alxo in English. The peculiar atructure
of Chinese necessitates 11n* use of some
alphabet in language, for Chinese ideographs
cannot bo telegraphed. Hence thu men
have to leant at least as much English us
enables ihem to spoil out words iu semaphoring, and thc officers are obligod thus to
communicato in English.

But although the ships nm good, and the
men aru beyond doubt splendid materia),
docile and muscular, it Is nol easy to pre
diet with certainty bow tho Chinese (lent
would comport itsolf in face of the enemy.
It is hard for the Western mind not to ho-
lievc that its fighting value must tw grievously impaired by the abuses whicli prevail.
The ollieers are addicted to gambling, uot
merely among themselves, but with their
inferiors ; the grossest nepotism is practised ; systematic peculation goes on, and
tlm cuntraut system, with its divisiou of the
spoils, tho starving of thc needs of lhe ser<
vice in order to put money into tho pockets
of the officers, is winked at by those iu
authority. To ibe foreign onlooker it
seems impossible that either loyalty to the
government or a proper spirit de corps can
co-exist with these gross abuses, and it is
on such premises that the expectation of a
collapse in the Chincae navy is founded.
Some allowance ia doubtless to bo made for
Oriental peculiarities of temper and administration. It ia hard to speak positively in
the absence of a practical lest, All that
can be said with certainty is that, in the
besi informed opinion, tho crews, if handled
by Europeans or Americans, could and
would fight to good purpose, but that
whether they will exhibit a good figure
under nativo leadership is a question Involved in considerable doubt.

What A Little Intelligence Did.
The following story, illustrating hia practical oommousense methods, has Ueu toll
by cx-Gov. Hoard at dairymen's meetings :
About 12 yeara ago thero camo into my
office a Herman farmer j we will call him
Carl. Ho sah), " I got mo 00acres ground,
and I got me frau and I got me six children*
sometimes me think  loo much childrcns
snd I got mo mortgage, and I work bo
hard as 1 cun all the time, uud I don't Imva
nodings; and I hear you speak ahoul. the
dairy business und I dink I talk wltlijyou,
see if you oan gif me somdings."
Now, the simple plea of tho man touched
me to the heart. It waa tho cry of a nun
who wm seeking, if possible, to seo through
ihe darkness that surrounded him, for thu
aake of his wife and children ami thu hope
that he might aome day have a homo und
get a bettor reward for the labor ot his
hands, I aaid, "Carl, I am glad you have
come to talk lo me ; we will look it ovor."
He aays, "What can I do? I got mono
money ; I cannot buy churns and all them
dings ; I cannot buy a lot of cows. I have
nine cows, and tha frau, sho makes butter,
aud I sell the butter in tho store, und I got
codfish and dingaatul dot ish nodlngs."
" Well" I aay, " Car), took here;
the difficulty lies with yon: you havo not
learned how to make lino bntter. You ure
making it from Carl's standpoint not, from
the standpoint oi the man who wants to
buy. You must make your butter rightly.
Ho a* to make It���you have no money '.' Lot
me see; ynu are keeping tho butter iu tli-*
houso ?" " Yes," " The milk iu the house?"
" Yes." ''Very well, that is no placo fer it.
Yotumoko and the wife, she cooks cahhagu
and turnips and everything, und all that
gots into tho butter ?" And Carl said "Yea"
" Well, we must devise somo practical,
simple way. You havo money enough to
buy $5 worth of lumbor.havon'tyiiu!" "Yur,
air." " You havu a good well (.ml a wind'
Wn will build a litllo house right
oven tho well, and you can got acounleof
kerosene barrels, can't you?" "Ves,"
They will cost 91,20; wc will burn thum
out to gat tho oil out of thum, and Lhey
will make two good tanks, (io down to
thelinucrr and gut soimi shut caus; lhey
will cost you very littio and you will gut
a good chum nnd I will come down aud
wc will make the buttoi*,"
And his friiu kept telling him all the
time " Look out, that Yanked mail is a
humbug," and Carl hu says " I dink not" ;
and by and by wo got a start and fie hail
some cream saved. I went, down ami
showed him how to keop his cream cool
and how to sot lho milk, till he had about
AOnrUO pounds of criam, anl I s-iid, "1
waut you to keup it so" ��� and so I tutored
him along, and the man was anxious as
could bo, and I thought he would team,
One .lay I went to his home and took oil
my coat and showed him how nlilfl butter
should he niHitc and how to gel ihu dohcatn
flavor. Then I took a neat litlln package,
uud ho said, " What will wc do with it?"
I replied, " Wc will put It into this nice
little package ami send il to Chicago."
" Send it to Chicago 1 why, I will never seo
my butter any more " ; ami ] said, " Yes,
you will. You have In*, n trying to mean*
ure this world by a narrow hart-ton- This
country grocery store I m Hi ness is not a dairy
market. If you make nice buttor, you
must send it where men pay good prices
fora good article. Wc will soud il lo
Chicago."
And 1 sent it off, and I ssid to thc con*,,
mission man, " Hero arn the first fruits oi
righteousness in my friend Carl, ami I want
you to sell this package of butter mi iu
merits." Mutter was setliug at l.'i (o lli
cents, anil the account camo back nt that
20 pound of butter at 20 cents.
] have soon some little triumph in life
aince, but 1 have nol seen u happier timo
in all my days than tho lime wheu I went
down io that little German, Carl, and sani,
"There is the prioo of your butter, and
there is your money, '-.(J cents per pound."
He took it in Ids hands, and catching his
wife around the waist, went waltzing around
and around, sayiug, " Lucctti, tint ish no
humbug ; Luce tli, dot ish no humbug."
Carl saw his first glimmer of light. A little
intelligence gave it to him. He had been
struggling and working apparently ngainst
fate an :1 could not seo hla way out, and!
tried to givo him practical auistanac. Today that man ia worth twenty-five or thirty
thousand dollars, nnd he dues not say he
haB got too many children now, for they
have grown up and are helping him, and
every littio whilu he sonda me in a little
package of butter, " To my friend who
showed mo how" ; uml tlioro havu beuu
hundreds of such instances. THE WEEKLY NEWS, SEPTEMBER 12, 1894.

Wednesday, Sept 12,1894,
The great storm ih.tt swept across the
Sea of Azov, a week ago Monday, lias
been well named the wind nf death. Onc
thousand people were killed, small villages along lhe shure being ravaged and
1 tcrally swept into the sea. We arc pc-
(.-uliarly fortunate in living in a climate
free from such evil visitations.
If there are any farmers hereabouts
who are discontented they should turn
t'leir eves eastward where thc farmers
are killing off their cattle in large numbers to prevent tbem starving The dry
weather there has caused a shortage of
pasturage, and the markets are glutted
wilh beef.
The demonstrations against the House
of Lords at Hyde Park on the 26th ult, was
btupendous, fully 70,000 assembling in
the Park. The following joint resolution
was adopted on all the platforms:
We regret that lhe Government has
been unable to give any definite pledge
as to their action regarding the House
of Lords. We call upon them to take
immediate steps to abolish the inische-
vous and useless hereditary chamber.
We call upon all electors of the United
Kingdom to refuse to support nny candidal who will not pledge himself to ad
vecate such steps.
WIVES.
Wives are being imported into Western Australia for the benefit of bachelors
Tliey are sent in carefully selected consignments, and are all under twenty.
How would it do to procure a consignment for the benclit of the lonely ranchers and loggers of Comox? That they
need to be wi-*ed admits of no question.
They are leading unblissful lives. They
are trying to do tbe part of two and neglecting in a measure the part of one.
They are ru^yed, healthy, often well
In do, but separated from woman's refining influence, fail to dcvelupe the
better side of their nature, and they acquire habits from which they would gladly be freed. That they do so well is the
wonder. Probably they expect up to
middle life to male, but become at last
so accustomed to thc freedom and ways
of bachelorhood, that they would not willingly give it up. In a degree they loose
their ambition and become content with
a very poor existence. After the Fraser
Kiver sufferers have been attended to, we
hope that something tangible will be
done for the Comox bachelors. A consignment of good wifcable timber from
tbe East would be a blessing to many.
Of course, it would not do to send any
except the young and good looking. Our
Ijachelors are not so distressed that they
would accept any but the pick. Perhaps
after all, if our need could only he made
known in the east there would be plenty
of maidens, fancy free, who would rejoice
to visit the west, and especially this section out of a general interest in the well-
fare of mankind, whicli sentiment, under
the favorable conditions to be met here,
w ould doubtless ripen into a special fl.mie
which would idealize -some one of the
lonely cabin dwellers. What a change
an influx of ion young women in our
midst would produce! How quickly rusty bachelordum would drop its awkward
ways and homely trippings! How the
business of the knight of tbe ra/.or would
revive! Mow the flashy necktie counter
would thrive! And how long before the
lonely cabins would become bright and
lives that had been cheerless, bloom with
unnumbered joys?
OOMOX   AGRICULTURAL
EXHIBITION.
The Comox Agricultural and Industrial
Association will hold its second annual
exhibition at thc village of Courienay on
Thursday, October 11. Entries of exhib
its must he made with the Secretary, Mr.
J. A. Halliday,threcdaysbeforecxhibition
day. Pedigrees of tborougbred stock
should be brought along to save disputes
Thc new building will be completed in
season, work on it having been begun
on last Monday. It will be, if we remem
her correctly, 30 bv 60ft, and located on
the Association lot purchased for the pur
pose, of Mr. Wm. Lewis. It is about 20
feet north of the office building just beyond the Puntiedge Soda Water Works.
The grounds of the Association adjoin,
and are admirably suited for exhibition
purposes. We are glad to team that
quite an interest is being manifested by
the farmers in the matter and alt classes
are disposed to give it encouragement.
It is safe to say lhat, as great as was the
success last year, the exhibition this year
promises to eclipse it. No effort will be
spared, we are assured, to make it worthy
of the farming district, and doubtless
equal pains will be taken to attract the
crn'.d of young people from thc Mines
who may not be specially interested in
farming products. From now on the local imcre.-.t will he centered in the Exhib
ition. We still think that upon the completion of ihe exhibition huilding there
should be an entertainment given to mark
lhe event, and also to raise needed funds.
Local pride should be sufficient to make
the attendance as large as the building
can accommodate; let the programme
be more siirring than the ordinary recitation��� son_, sinking affair

"PerlVetly happy! Well, 1 nm per
roctly happy. 1 go whnre I will. I do as
I will, ami 1 hnve not n wish uugrauted."
" Then, iny doar, you have never been
in love,"
"No; thnt plo-wim* in yet to come."
** Yon iiiink it will Iw a plc��BureT"
"If tin* right man comes."
" It could not be a plea-Hire otherwise;
Imt I see my uncle coming to chum me
for a walk, no vou will excuse ine if I
go to meet him.
"Certainly, my dour. Perfectly love
ly, n�� well lis perfectly hnppy," Baid the
general's widow, as sho turned Aga'n to
wards lh ' group of ladies who bud been
lintenitig to 11 discussion between horn-ell
and the most beantlfnl debutante of
thesea-i'innii the conditions of happiness.
"Yes." sighol a plain looking little
woman in an unbecoming brown gown,
" it ii unB.v to be happy, nnd even beautiful, in such I'oRtunje*-.."'
"Lint." interrupted the General's
widow, "Miss TowiiBand is one of tho*��e
women who would look well evon in
��! abby gray alpaca at high noon on a
bright day. There would be a sweep
to the skirt and a set to the waist that
would be impossible to dofine or imitate. She i�� n born dresser, but I ain
wondering how long she will be able to
declare herself perfectly happy."
"Hhe does not know what happiness
is, if, as Bhe nays, she hai never been in
love," chimed in a bride of threo months,
at which the little circle laughed,
and the Oeneral's widow suggested
that they move their seats to
whero tbey could have a better view of
the main entrance, as it was time for
tho through train from the north to arrive, and it had been whispered that a
Scotch Laird of high degree, an English Duke, and a well known journalist
were e 'pocti'd���tho Englishman to join
thc 1 x.doring party, the journalist to do
the bousou for a syndicate, and the
Scotch Leird���well, all sorts of rumors
were aflo.*it renoerning him. One was
that be dressed in kilts, anil waa followed by a Highlander in oustume also.
"Did you ever see so many pretty
girls'**' said tho Ueneral'B widow, as she
surveyed the merry crowd tbat titled
the hallways, staira, and main entrance
of ono of* Florida's splendid hotels.
"And Cons a ice Townsaud is quite the
handsometa tuere."
And tho General's widow was right.
Tall and most divinely fair, in a gown
of softest white silk, she reiumled one
of the royal moon ilowers, a great bunch
of which nhe held iu her haml. They
wi re hor chosen (lower, aud by them
she had become known aa tbe luoon-
flower bi'lle.
"That girl understands effects perfectly," thought tho General's widow,
as she watch til her quietly hi d appar
ently without intention Beat herself in
nn old fashioned high-back chair thai
stood just at the foot of the stairway,
nud over whioh a graceful palm spread
its dark green leaves.
There Had bueti quite a dismission between tho General's widow, the littio
lady in brown, and the brid ��� hs to how
the Laird, the Duko, and the writer
would aet when thoy first saw Miss
Towsand, for the throe women hud
watched wi.h a growing interest tbe
Bensutions sho never failed to produce,
uul.il they bad begnu to have a senso of
proprietorship in the girl's radiant beau
ty, and would have bitterly resented any
criticism the least bit unfavorable.
That Miss Townsaud deserved their admiration was certain, and thut she never
failed to be in the entrance hall wheu
tho evening coaches arrived, faultlessly
?owned in white, and carrying her
avorite flower, was also certain, so that
tho three women were aure ou this par
ticular evening of enjoying the little
tableau they had mentally arranged.
The Englishman did just what the
General's widow expected he wonld; he
htopped in the very act of greeting a
friend, readjusted his glasses, and after
taking a good look, exclaimed;
"Stunning, do you know���stunning!"
Tlie writer, the bride had declared,
would run his hands through his raveu
locks���no auburn, uo sunlight locks-
call her a goddess, aud end in writing
verses to her. As it happened, he caught
sight of her as he looked up from read
ing a telegram recalling nim to other
and lest arduous duties than writing
verses to tho belle of the season would
havo been. And his looks wero brown
and cut short, he did not go through the
running act, nlthoug it did tune him a
long time to read tho toleirram, as over
it bo watcbod tbe beautiful girl smiling
and chatting to those about hor. Then
turning to the clerk at the desk, he
asked:
"Who is the lady in whito with the
moon-flowers'!"
������Miss Townsand of Texns, niece of
Major Townsand, tho richest cattleman
in the country. Heen here two weeks;
going to stay two more," answered the
authority behind the dealt, in a I-knew-
vi. 11 would -ask it toao of voice, nover
.men raising his eyes from tho book over
which ho waa bending.
-Thank you, Mr. Cash; yon wonld
mako a tip top paragrapher.'
"That's all right, old man; whon yon
want an introduction to the Major, I will
gladly arrange it for you."
As'for the Scotch Laird, he did not
appear, thereby disappointing tho little
lady in brown, who had been hia champion from the first, declaring that ho
would lie the one to woo and win.
"My dear, he and hiB kilts have boen
bribed into staying elsewl eru as attractions, "said the General's widow, who
disliked Scotchmon.
"No Buch thing; he is probably so shy
or late that he haa come in by a Bide
entrance. I am going to look at the
register as itoon aa that telegraph-reader
moves away."
But before she oould carry out her intentions a young man in a plain brown
travelling suit with a canvas bag in his
hand Btep|Mnl into tho brilliantly lighted
hallway, and was at once greeted by
half n dozen poople, among them Constance, who stood op on seeing him, the
flowers she had been holding falling In
sweet confusion at her feet.
Archer���why, Cousin Aroheyl"
"Con���why, Couain Con I" he unwed, aa they elaaped handa.
The bride smiled, and whispered something to the general's widow, who answered:
" Yes the right man has arrived."
" And it is, triumphantly announced
the Uttlo lady in brown, " Laird Archibald Robin, of Robin Ct*Ue, Scotland."

After the late aisasterous fire in Nanaimo the Insurance Companies cancelled a large number of policies in some blocks. We
have just $10,000.00 to place just at present in any other Company.
Now we cannot afford to carry over large slock without sufficient insurance. Consequently we are compelled to unload. To do
this quickly we have put the prices lower on everything in our immense stock���than Dry Goods have evt.. been bought before���less
than cost in nearly every instance. See pi 'ce lists which we have
sent out.
