THE FATOUIER OASE.
Nanaimo, Mav. 4.��� The arrest of
L'liiis Fauquier last week caused great
excitement here. Fauquier was detained
in jail three days when he was released
on habeas carpus. The preliminary
hearing commenced last Wednesday.
Lawyers Lampman of Vancouver and
Barker of Nanaimo appeared for Rabson; Ij. F. Cane for defended. Very little was clone on lhe first day, Rabson
not having his witnesses on hand. When
thc case came on again on Friday, Rabson gave evidence to lhe effect that Fauquier negotiated a loan of $3,250 in his
behalf of which amount he had misappropriated $314. Rabson was very positive that Fauquier intended to beat him
out of this sum. He swore lhat Fauquier
had told him he had spent llie money,
but would make it up as quickly as possible. This he had never done. Mrs.
Elennr Fauquier, sister-in-law of the accused, who lent the money on a mortgage, swore she had paid $607 of this
amount to Fauquier,the balance-had been
paid through her solicitors. The prosecution will endeavor to prove that Fauquier got away with $314 of this $697. On
the other hand lhe stand taken by lhe
defence is that Fauquier acting as Rail-
son's agent applied the money in accordance with instruction | thai he has 1101
misappropriated one cent. Fauquir's law.
yer says that Pabson will probably be
prosecuted for malicinus arrest and Till-;
News be sued for libel for article in list
issue. The hearing has been further adjourned until Monday afternoon.
[Note.���A report reached here several days ago that Rabson had been sued
for $10,000 damages, but it proved to be
a shot from a wind gun.

A DOCTOR OFTHE OLD SCHOOL
ii.
11180000   THK FLOOD.
Dr. MacLure did not Wil a solemn pro*
cessiau from the aiok bed to the dining*
room, aud Rive hia opinion from the hearth*
run with an air of wisdom bordering on the
.pernalyral,   because  neither tho Drum.
i3hty houses nor his manners were on thai
rge scale. He waa accustomed to deliver
Jmself in the yard, aud to conclude hia
treotiona -vith one foot in the attrrnpi but
.hen he left the room where the life of
rtnoie Mitchell waa ebbing slowly away,
our doctor said not one word, and at the
night ol hia face her husband's heart wis
troubled.
He w��l a dull man, Tammas, who could
not. read the meaning of a sign, and lahored
under a perpetual disability of speech ;
but love wu eyea to him that day, and a
mouth.
" ls't as bad aa yir lookin*. doctor ?
tell'a the truth ; wull Annie uo come
through T" and Tammaa looked MacLure
straight io the face, who never flinched his
duty or aaid smooth things.
" A* wud gie anything tae say Annie hes
a chance, hut a' daurua ; a1 doot yir gaein'
tae loee her, Tammaa."
MacLure waa in the saddle, and as he
gave hiB judgment, he laid hia hand on
Tammas'a shoulder with one of the raro
caresses that paas between men.
" It'a a sair buaineas, but ye 'ill play tlie
man and no vex Annie ; Bhe 'ill dae her
best, a'll warrant."
" An' a'll dae mine," and Tammaa gave
MacLure's hand a girp that would have
crushed the bones of a weakling. 1 hum-
tochty felt in such momenta the brotberli-
iss of thia rough-looking man, and loved
m.
Tammaa hid his face in Jess's mane, who
-ked round with sorrow iu her beautiful
-, ea, for she had aeeu many trugedies, ami
this silent aympathy the stricken mnn
ank hia cup, drop hy drop.
*' A' weana prepared for this, for a* aye
thocht she wud live the laoi-eat. . . .
She's youuger than me by teu years, and
never wes ill. . . . We've beeu inairit
twal year laat Martinmas, but it'a juiat
like a year the day. ... A' wes never
worthy o' her, the honnieat, snodilest
(neatest), kindliest lass in tlio Glen. . . .
A' never cud muk oot hoo she ever louklt
at me, 'at henna hed ae word tae bay aboot
her till it'a ower late. . . . She didna
ouiat (cast) up tae me that a' wesim worthy
o' her, no her, but aye alio auid, ' Yir ma
ain gudeman, und nane cud lie kinder tae
me.' . . . An' a' wes minded tae be
kind, but a1 see noo mony liltle trol.es a'
micht hae duno for her und noo the time
id bye. . . . Naebody kena hoo patient
she wes wi' me, and aye made the heat o'
me, an' never pit me tae shame afore the
foulk. . . . An' we never hed ae cross
word, no ane in   twal year.   .   . We
were mair nor man and wife, we were
sweethearts a' thu time. . . . Oil, ma
bonnie laaa, what 'ill the bairnies an' me
dae withoot ye, Annie ?"
The winter night waa falling fast, the
snow lay deep upon the ground, and the
merciless north wind moaned through the
close aa Tainmas wrestled with hia borrow
dry-eyed, for tears were denied Drumtoehty men. Neither the doctor nor Jess
moved hand or foet, but their hearts were
with their fellow creature, and at length
the dootor made a sign to Marget Howe,
who had come out in search of Tammaa,
and now stood by his aide.
"Dinna mourn tae tlie brakin' o' yir hert,
Tainmas," ehe said, "as if Annie an' you
hed never luved. Neither death nor time
cau pairt them lhat luve ; there's naethin'
in a' the warld sae atrong asluve. If Annie
gaes frae the aicht o' yir een ahe 'ill come
the nearer lae yir hen. She wants tae see
ye, and tae hear ye aay that ye 'ill never
torget her nicht nor day till you meet in
thc land where there'a nae pairtin'. Oil, a
ken what a'm Bayin', for ita five year noo
ain George gied awa, an' he'a mair wi' me
noo thau when he wes in Edinboro' and 1
wes in Drumtoehty."
"Thank ye kindly, Margot; thae aro
gude worda and true, an' ye hev the richt
tae say them ; but a' canna dae wiinout
aeoin' Annie comin' tao meet me iu the
gloamin' an' gaciu' in an' out the hooae, an'
hearin' her ca' me by ma name, an' a'll no
can tell her that a' luve her when there's
nae Annie iii the hoose,
"Can naethin' be dune, doctor? Ye
������avit Flora Gam mil, ami young Burnbrae,
an* yon shepherd's wife Dunleith wy, an'
we were a' aae prood o' ye, an' pleased tae
think that ye lied kecpit deith frae anither
httnie. Can ye uo think o' aomethin' lae
help Annie, and gie her hack tae her man
and bairnies?" und Tammaa searched tuo
doctor's faoe in tho cold wierd light.
" There'a nae pooer in herven or uirth
like luve," Margret said to me afterwards ;
" it makea ihe weak Btrong aud the dumb
tae speak. Oor horta were aa rater aforo
Tammaa'a words, an' a' saw the doctor
shake in hia saddle. A* never kent till
that meenut hoo he hed a share in a body's
grief, an' carried lho heaviest wecht, o' a'
the (ilen. A' peeticd hitn wi* Tammaa
lookin'at him aae wii-ti'ully, as if ho hed
tlie keys o' life and doith in hia handy. Hut
ho wes honest, and wudna hold oot a false
houp tae deceive a aoro hert or win eacapo
for hinnsel,'"
"Ye neodna plead wi' me, Tainmas, to
dae the best a' can for yir w fe. Man, a'
kent her lang afore ye ever luved her ; a'
hroeht her intae the warld, and a' saw her
through the fever when she wes a bit las-
sikio ; a' closed her miiher'a een, and it
wea mo lied tao tell her she wes an orphan,
an'nao man wes better pleased when **ho
got a gude husband, and a' helpit her wi'
her fower brains. A'vo naither wifo not
bra-ns o'ma own, an' a' coont a' the fouk
o' the Glen ma family. Div yo think a'
wudna save Annie it I eud ? If there wes
a man iu Miiirtown 'at cud (lac mair tor
her, a'd have him this verra nicht, but a'
the dootors in Perthshire are helpless for
this tribble.
"Tainmas, ma puir fallow, if it could
avail, a' tell ye a' wud lay doon   this auld
worn-cot ruckle o' a body r*' mine Julst tae
Bee ye baltfa sittin' at the fireside, an' the
hvirnsroond ye, eouthy an' canty again ;
but it'a no tae be, Tainmas, it'a no tae be."
" When a' lookit at the doctor's fa-**,"
Marget said, "a' thocht him tbe winsomest
man ta' ever saw. He wes transfigured
that nicht, for a'm judging there'a nae
transfiguration like luve."
"Ii'a God's wull an' maun bo borne, but
it'sasair wull for mc, an1 a'm bo ungratefu'
tae jou, doctor, for a' ye've dune and what
ye said the nicht," ami Tainmas went back
to sit with Annie for tlie laat time.
Jess picked her way through the deep
snow to the mum road, with a skill that
came of long experience, and the doctor
held converse with her according to hia
wont,
*��� Eh, leaa, wumman, yon wes the hardest wark a' hae tae t. ce, au' a' wud raither
hae ta'en um chance o' anither row in a Glen
Urtach drift than tell Tammas Mitchel
his wife wea deein.'
' A'said ahe oudna be cured, and it wea
true,for there'a juist ae mau m the land fit
t'ot't, and they micht aa weel try tae get
iho iiium* on i ��� ii' heaven, Sao a' i aid naethin'
tae vex Tammvs'a hert, for it's heavy
oneiieh withoot regrets.
" But it's hard, .TesB, that money wull
buy life after a,' an' if Auuic wea a duchess
her man wudna lose hei ; but being only a
puir cottar's wife, ahe maun dee afore the
week's oot.
" Gin we hed him the moru there'a liltle
doot sho wud be saved, for he hesna lost
mair than five per cent, o' his cases, and
they 'ill be puir toon's oraturs, no strap-
pin' women like Annie,
"It's oot o1 the question. Jeaa, aae hurry
up, laBS, for we've hed a heavy day. But
it wud be the grandest thing that was over
dune in ihe Gien in oor time if it could bo
managed hytfcook or crook."
"We 'ih gang and see Diumshengh,
Jean; he'a anither man Bia' Geordie Hoo'a
deith. and he wea aye kinder than fouk
kent |" and the dootor passed at a gollop
tlirontrh the village, whoso lights shone
across die white frost-bouud road.
"Come In by, doctor ; a' heard ye on the
road; ye 'id hue been at Tammaa Mit-
chell'a ; hoo'a the gudewife ? a' doot she's
sober."
" Annie's deein', Drumaheugh, au'Tammas ia like tae br��k hia heit."
"That's no Iiciitome, dootor, no licht-
some ava iat ulh, for a' dinna ken ony man
in Drumtoohty sae bund up in hia wife aa
Tammaa, and there's no a bonnier wiiminan
o1 hor age crosses oor kirk door thau Annie,
nor a cleverer at hor wark, Man, yo 'ill
need lue pit yir brains in steep. U she clean
beyond yo ?"
" Beyond me and every ither in the land
but ans, and it wud cost a hundred guineas
tae bring him tie Drumtoehty."
"Ctrtoy, he's no blato (backward) ; it's
a fell ohairge for ii short day's work ; hut
hundred or no hundred we 'ill hae him, an'
no let Annie gang, and Ier no half her
yeara."
" Are ye mc-aniii' it, Drumaheugh t" and
MacLme turned wihte below tho tan.
"William MucL'jre," said Drumaheugh,
iu one ot me lew confidences that ever
broke the Di umtoehty reserve, " a'm a
lonely man, wi' naebody o' ma am blude
tae cure for me liviu,' or tae lift me intae
ma oofflu when a'm deid.
" A' facht awa at Muirtown market for

an' l.aehlmi Campbell 'ill no leave the place
noo withoot a ribbon for Flora.
" Ilka man iu tho Kiidrummie train has
eome bit fairin' in his pooch for the fouk
at haunt that he's booht wi' the siller he
won.
" But there's naebody tae be lookin' oot

11 Yir the only man kens, Weelum, that I
aince luved thc nobl st wumman in the
Glen or ony where, an' a' luve her still, hut
wi' anither luve noo,
"She hed given her heart tae anither, or
a'vo thocht a' micht hae won her, though
nae mau be worthy o' sic a gift. Ma hert
turned tuo bitterness, hut that passed awa
le i e the brier bush wl.ar George Hoo lay
yon *a-l simmer time. Some day a'll toll
ye ma atory, Weelum, for you an' me are
auld free-ids, and will he till we doe."
MacLure felt beneath the table for
Drumsheugh's hand, but neither mau look
ed at the other.
"Weel, a' we can dae noo, Wellum, gin
we haena iniekle brichtneas in oor ain
haim s, is tao koep the licht frae gaein' oot
in anither hoose. Write tho telegram man
and Sandy 'ill aond it ati feae Kiidrummie

" Yir ihe man a' coont ed yo, Drum'

Next   morning   a   figure   received   Sir
j George on the Kildrummio platform whom
that famous surgeon   took for a gillie, but
who Introduced himself as " Mar-Lure of
Drumtoohty."     It aeemed as if the Kast
hud eome to meet the West when theso two
stood together, the one in travelling furs,
handsome    and    distinguished,  with   his
Strong, cultured   face  ami   carriage of au
thoiity, a characteristic type of hia profession : aud  the  other   more marvellously
I dreaaed   than ever, for Drumaheugh's  top-
[ coat had been   forced upon him for tho  no
j easion, his face and neck one redness with
| tho bitter cold ;  rough and ungainly,  yot
not without some signs of power iu his eye
J und voloe, the moet heroic typo of his noble
profession, MacLure compassed the precious
arrival with innervations till he was secure*
; ly   seated   in Drumaheugh's   dog-cart���a
! vehicle that lent itself lo history���witli two
\ full-sized plaids lidded   to hia ������������uipmen*,���
1 Drumaheugh   and Hillock*-*   had   hoth been
requisitioned���ami     MacLure     wrapped
another pi ail round a leather caae,  which
was placed below the seat with huch reverence   as might  be  given  to thn Queen's
regalia,     l'eter attended their departure
full of interest, and as soon ns they woro in
the iir woods VaoLure explained that it
would be an eventful journey.
"It's a' richt. in hero, for tho wind disna
vjet al the suaw, but the drlftB, art deep in
ihe  G'en,   and th'ill   bo some ensineerin'
afore w<j get tae oor destination."

The next 10 or 12 years the orchard is in its
prime, and if during this time we can get
one-third more trees and have one-third
more fruit to market we are juat that muoh

other one and you will still have aa many as

you will have had 12 yeara' nae of the trees
removed. I have given muoh observation

Every year we have had dry weather
during July, August and September, when
the pastures become brown and seared and
oows go travelling about in aearoh of seme-
thing to eat, and they suffer from the ho
weather, flies and short pastures. This results in a serious falling off in the milk
supply, and when a cow has been allowed
to partly dry np she can" not again be
brought back to the full flow ; she may
freshen up again when good feed cornea in
abuudance and do very woll for a time, but
���he will not fully recover.and the dairyman
can not rucover tho profit he haa allowed
to alip through hiB fingers by forcing his
cowa to wander over dry fields in search t��*
enough feed to sustain life. It takes moro
feed during hot weather and fly time to keep
up the flow of milk than is required at any
other time in the year, unleBB when oows
are allowed to sutler from cold, extreme
heat and cold, as well as hunger. Flies are
a severe tax ou cow energy, and whenever
this energy that is supplied at tlie expense
of feed is allowed to go to waBte,the profits
are materially lessened.

Overshoes and Darning.
Oh, how muddy my rubbers are," exclaimed Mrs. Price, as he pulled off the
offending articles before entering the door
Mrs. Peters held invitingly open,
" I washed them off only this morning/
Bhe continued, " but it does little good this
weather,"
"I find it is a great mistake to wash good
rubbers," remarked Mra. Peters as they
iat down. " I used to do it, but I have
found a better way."
" Do let ine have the benefit of your ex*
porieuce," exclaimed Mra, Prioe. " 1 have
sometimes thought soap injured the rubbers,
but 1 felt obliged to use it,"
41 The beat way is to allow the overshoe
to become thoroughly dry. Then brush
free from dust and mud and rub over with
vaseline. This cleans them and also makes
the surface more impervious to water,"
" Well, I shall try that plan to-day,
May I ask what you are doing ?" ahe broke
off abruptly, watching her friend, who
seemed to be carefully drawing threads
from the edge of a napkin she was about to
hem.
"Thia napkin waa not out quite straight;
I always save such threads to darn worn
places with. It allows much less than when
done with ordinary thread."
" That is an idea which I had not heard
of," said Mrs. Price.
" It is one which can be applied to other
articles as well," answered Mrs. Peters.
" Rents in dreases and even carpets ; the
darn will often be almost invisible wheu
done with threads drawn from the material."
" Well, I have learned bo much from you
i am going to tell one thing I have learned
from experience. My huaband haa oome
very near loaing his temper several times
over having the buttonholes of hia collars
starched eo stiff. He has broken hia finger
nails trying to button them eto. But I
havo fouud a way to gain his gratitude."
" What ia it ?" aaked Mrs. Petera with
interest,
" Dip the first two fingers and thumb
into water and knead the buttonholes for
about two Beconda. The starch is out of
that spot and the remainder of the oollar is
not ali'ected."
" I am sure that is well worth knowing,
Mrs. Price."
" Theu we have both gained something
to-day," was the anawer.
Recipes.
Suet Podding.��� Ingredientat Oue-half
pint beef suet, chopped fine, one-half pint
molasses, one-half pint milk, one-half pint

The Reason.
Grandma Gruff said a curious thing :
JBoyamay whistle, but girls must slog,"
'hat's tho very thins I Iwjard her say
To Kate, no longer than yesterday.
"Boys may whistle."   Of coarse they may,
If they pucker their lip*- tho pro* or way ;
But for the life of me I cant too
Why Kate can't whistle as woll as me.
"Boys may whistle, hut girls muat sing."
Now lcoll thata curious thing.
If hoys cun whistle, why can t girts, tool
It'a the cosiest thing in the world to do.
So if the boya can whUtle and do it well.
Why cannot girls���wiil soineb' dy tell I
Why can't Ihey do whnt a boy can dol
That ii tho thing 1 should liko to Know.
I went to father and -v-ki-d him why
GtrlS couldn't whistle us woll as I,
And ho said, "The reason that girls must sing
Is because u girl'H a siug-nlur thing."
And grandma laughod till I knew she'd ache
When I sun! 1 thorn-lit it all a mistake
"Never mind, Uttle man," I heard hor say,
"They will make you whistle enough noonday."
Flowers for tne Dead.
"Jennie, did you go in to see Clara Stone
to-day!" asked Mrs, Case, as she and ber
daughter aat by the fire one evening at tbe
close of what bad been a dreary day in
November.
"Dear, no," was the reply} "I forgot all
about it. I met Stacy Moore down town,
and she had ao much to tell me about the
new society the young people of their
churoh were going to bave this winter,
that Clara Stone never entered my mind."
"I'm very sorry," said her mother,
"Vou have always been snch good friends;
it seems too bad now that she is unable tc
go out, and has been since last winter, that
she should be so neglected by so called
friends."
"Now really, mother, do you think she
is as badly off as she pretends?"
"Pretends t" exclaimed Mrs. CaBe. "Do
you mean to say that you think Clara ia
pretending to be sick? Then I should
think that one look at her sunken eyes
and hollow cheeka would be answer
enough."
" Well, I suppose," said Jennie, " that I
ought to go in, bnt I never have any
time,"
Why, Jennie," said her mother, "you
have all there is, and yon find tims to
attend almost every meeting ofthe different
societies to which you belong, and I can't
help but think you ought to go to see
her."
A week passed by, and nothing more
was Baid on the subject, until one evening
Jennie's brother came to the sitting room
door with a paper in his hand and said :
What was Clara Stone's father's name ?"
" John," aaid Jennie.
*' Then Clara'a dead," he replied.
" I don't believe it," cried Jennie. "Give
me that paper." And taking the paper
from his hand she read the notice of her
friend's death. She looked sober as she
returned to her seat and tears filled her
eyes.
After a moment's silence, she said : " It
does not seem poaaible that it can be Clara,
I should have thought they wonld have aent
me word."
I do not know why they should," Baid
her mother, " you have not been to aee
her in nearly two months, and every time
I have been in there ahe haa looked up
with an expectant air and aaid : * I aurely
thought Jennie would come to-day,' and I
have made excuses for you. There ahe has
lain all the long weary daya, and the most
of nor young friends have proven them*
selveB to be thoae ot summer only, in fact
like the priest and the Levite, have passed
by on tho other Bide,"
Jenuie made no reply, but soon after
aaid " good night" to ber mother and went
to her own room, the next morning at the
breakfast table Jennie said : " I must go
down to tbe florist's and order somo flow*
ers for Clara's funeral,"
In a low tone her brother said : "Neglect for the living and flowers for the
dead."
That night as Jenuie aat in her room
after she had aeen all that was mortal oi
her frieud Clara, put from her eight for*
ever, her mother oame in and Bitting down
by her said : " Let this be a lesaon to
you, Jenuie, and learn to do unto othera
as you would have them do to you. Trus
ia not the firat time I have aeen the same
thing done, aud by people oluor than you,
too. They have been ao intimate with
othera in the time of health aud atrength
and when they were overtaken with sick*
ness, and not able to miugle with them in
all their amuaements, they havo lieen left*
alone. Only those who have tried it know
how monotonous lite within four walls can
be, especially if one is well enough to talk
with friends, if thoy would ouly come, and
it adds to the burden of sickuess, howovtr
slight, to feel that you aro not neccasary to
your friends' happinesH, Jennie, remember that ' flowers after death' will not
bring smiles to cold lips, nor cheer hearts
that have stopped boating, aud if ever
again you are tempted to ncglcet your
friends in the time of trouble remember
this little verse:
" ' TIh easy tobe gentle when
Denth's silence lames our clamor,
And easy to discern tho best
Through memory's myrtle glamor t
But wise it were for thee nnd uio,
Ere love Is pa-t forgiving,
To tnke Ihe tender lesson bomo -
Ilo kinder to tho living.'"

Of course we have not been entirely
overlooked, and have had accorded us
a weekly mail! There are now fully
3.500 people in the district not counting
thc Indians. Wc are in thc centre or
heart of Vancouver Island, mice a
colony of itself. We h ive here nne oi
the best agricultural districts on th'*
coast. Our climate is radically different
along the const from what it is inland,
and our fruit trees, vegetables and grains
require to be selected with special reference 10 thc conditions of soil and climate which prevail here. For these
reasons an Agricultural Experiment sta
tion should be located in the Cjidx valley. There is one for the Mainland
which is of comparatively little value to
us, and another should be stationed on
this Umpire "island of ours; and as a
matter of course, Comox from its
geographical situation, and agricul-
tura importance is the best place
for it. It is needed here, and at this
point would accommodate the moist
belt of thc province. Coniox valley is
equi-distant between thc north and south
limits of our agricultural area. It is
true that the area of farm* in cultivation

out of the hand to be taken possession ot.
Invigorated with the air from the pin*,
woods and snovv clad m luntains, in.in acquired new energy and con:idence in his
o.vii p )n'ers an.I resources, so that no dit*
ticuily was too greal to surmount, no ef
fort too great to make, and no success,
however wonderful, -.eeuied imposbibla to
attain. Disappointment, failure, wound*-,
MLl-nt-MS, starvation, old age, death, home
lessness, and loneliness were not thought
of. Theae were behind llie curtain ofthe
future. To press on, get there, 10 succeed
at any cost, and in any way, in tne mad
race for wealth, was ihc one idea, lu the
exclusion of of everything else. And some
did succeed beyond their most extra* a-
gant expectations, piled up gold by the
thousands of dollars each day and squalid
ereil ii as lu'dshly each night, thinking
their mine -tus inexhauslable un.il
some numing they a-vokc to Hnd
ihiinselves dead broke. Other folks hunt
ed for fortune, whicli like the ignis f.-tuus
over eluded the grasp, hoping on until
age and infirmities left them broken down
and us ess to themselves and everybody
else. This latter class make up the
great majority of the ranks of the " Old
Timers ;I we read of. They dfop off, one
by one, and thc papers have a passing
notice of another old " Forty-niner" or
Caribooite gone; and the earth closes over
one more ol that great army of adventurers that has ever gone in advance ot
Pacific coast civilization. These old fellows pass on toward die great divide still
dreaming of early days, perhaps with vis
ions beforo their dying eyes of some inexhaustible lead that will realize all their
hopes. - - Memories of the past, some
sweet, some sad, many I' d fain forget, but
like lianqno's ghost "they will not down"
���how they crowd upon one in quick sus-
cession!
The spirit of adventure stirred up in the
old land by golden stones from the new,
the patting liomi>ld scenes, companions
and sweethearts, with the promise to return when fortune be made; the voyage
out, and the landing in British Columbia
on an early summer morning, where the
surroundings were so new and strange,
where each man had a more wonderful
stoty than his neignbour of rich strikes,
or the prospects of this or lhat creek or
bar, ancl which the papers published with
numerous embellishments, { for it seemed
the mission ofthe papers in those days to
work up the gold excitement,) ��� what
wonder that a frenzy seized everyone, that
old and steady ways of earning a living
were scorned and that everyone getting
his pack on his back started out into the
wilds in search of fortune?
THE LONG   A 00.
Uy C. Kvuns, Union.
I saw in sleep, at ihe dead of night,
My home of the long ago,
And traced in the glow ofa mystic Hgftt,
The change that passing years do write
On the scenes I used to know.
I met with hearts ?t tho da-id ut night.
Now sundered afar, 1 know;
I saw tbem there in that mystic light,
And my soul was full of the same delight
Of the home of long ago.
1 heard on the wintry breath of nijjht,
O'er the gleam ofthe starlit snou,
The wolf*, lone cry in hts hungry flight,
And felt once more the childish fright,
That or.ee I used oknow.
Then days and words returned lo sight
\\ ill) joys I used to know,
\n-i mother's love with its irue delight
Came back to my soul at the dead of night
With the home ofthe long ago.
I know, if 1 live ihis life aright,
As the changing season*; flow,
From the drifting snow of the mountains
height
I'll see bv the rijsof a heavenly light,
Eatlh life of the long ago.

CHAPTER XLIX,
A PLAOB OF KEST.
"Wall, if ever iwo strange gentlcmeu did

Brettison," said Mrs. Brade as Bhe reluctantly went back to her lodge. "Nice state
their rooms must be iu ; aad bim onoe no

Hhe had some cauBe for complaint, liret.-
tisou braving dismissed hor with a request
uot to talk quite bo much.
In spite of tlie woman's declaration of
titration's absence, the old man felt that he
must bu there; and aftor knocking twico,
eaoh time wiih his heart sinking more aiul
more witli dread, ho applied his lips to tho
letter box after forcing open tlie spring
(lap,
" Stratton, if you are there, f ir Heaven's
sake of on at once I" he whispered loudly,
There was a rustling sound directly, thc
bolt wus hhot back, and Straiten admitted
him, afterward taking a letter from the box,
glancing at it, and thrusting it into his
pocket.
" That woman said you had gone out,"
said Brettison eagerly. " I wan alarmed. I
thought���how is be V'
Stratton pointed to the chair whore th0
man lay us if asleep.
" Why,   b.*w   haggard you  look," said
Brottison   oxcitediy.     " Has   there
anything the matter ?"
" Nothing   much ; only   1 hav

" It's a fact," said Stratton. " I found
him with that piece of ro��k in his hand,and
about to strike me down,"
He pointed to the massive stone lying on
llie tabic, and then said, smiling :
"I was just in time to save myself."
"Good Heavens !    Was he dangerous for
long ?"
" For  long  enough.    We  had a Bhort
struggle, and he went down with a orash
One moment he was  tremendously strong
the next helpless as a child,  and   he ha
been liku that ever since.    Our plans  must

"Js'o, not now," said Brettison decisively,
"The man has been over exoited to-duy.
Your presence steins to have roused up
feelings that havo beeu asleep, l ought not
to have left- you alone with him Come, it
is getting late, We have very fewjmnuua
to snare,"
"Then you mean to go?"
"Ye.-*, 1 mean to go. Yon shall see us to
the Stattou, 1 have no fear of him; ho will
be calm enough with um.''
" Very well," said Stratton, " anything
to get him away from here. If ho keeps on
turning violent' he must be placed under
restraint."   Stratton   opened    the    door,
{ila-.-ed bis traveliug hag outside^ and came

" What doea that mean?" said Brettison,

Vou cannot go now. T havo managed
him so ton-.' an- 1 ean manage him still."
" Wo shall mias the train," saitl Stratton
quietly; and taking the man's arm he drew
il quietly through his, and aftel pausing to
secure the door, walkod with him down to
the cab, Brettisou following -villi tlie little
valise.
They reached lho station within five
minutes of the time, aud soon after were
rattling down to Southampton, Stratton
throwiug himself back in a corner to draw
'eep breath of rebel us they left the busy
to hi led to some nook or other at the foot
of the high clili's, wlj,ere he would sil down,
watched by his attendant���the Breton
woman���while Brettison buBied himself on
the cliffs collecting. I
There was no trouble ; the man grew ���
more apathetic day by day, and Brettieon
tuok care ihu'. his companion should not
oome in contact with bim, for fear of reviving some memory of the paat and caus-
ing a scene.
"And ho is so good aud patient, m'aien,"
the nurse would say, looking up from the
knitting over which she was busy ; "und
he is growing well and strong, oh, so fast.
H is our beautiful bay, monsieur. Yes,
everyone growa Btrong uud well hore,"
She nodded as If there was n* contradicting this, and Brettison went in search of
Stratton with a bunch of plants in Iub
hand, and curiously puzzled look in his
eye-i.
"Supposo he doos get well and strong,"
ho thought lo himself, "I ought to be
glad, but am not,"
Ht* fouud Stratton sitting back, with his
should.*rs against the cliff, dreaming of the
future, more at nut than be had been for
months, and as Brettison drew  near  ho
brightened a little, and smiled.    For the
nurse's words applied to hiB friend as well,
and he wan certainly growing stronger and
bettor.    A healthy brown was coming into
his face, and in spite of the dreamy reverie
i which he plungod, a more even balauoe
��� ooming to his mind,
One    must   reckon    ono againat   tbe
other," Brettison said to himself.
As the daya glided by, and they gained
confidence from their charge's dull, dreamy
aondttion-, Brettison proposed, and Stratton readily agreed, to mako little ex-
excursions with him inland, or along the
coast to some of the quaint villages, or!
antique���BO'Oalled Druidioal���remains (and '
after eaoh trip they returned to find nurse
and patient just as they had leftthom. The
confidence increased, and it became evident
Lhat Stratton had only to keep away for

from day to day. His habits were simple
and full of self-indulgence, it there could

rose late, miu wer.t to bed Boon after biui*
do ivn.and the eveulnga were looked forward
tn by Stratton and Brettison for their
quiet dinner at the little inn where Stratton
stayed.
Hero, as they sat over thoir wines and
had cigars, watching tiie evening skies and
the glorious star-gemmed Bea, a feeling of
rest Jul ness came over them,and they leaned
buck with the fdeling of convalescents
whose wounds wero healing fast, after they
had been very nearly io thc gules of
death.
It was a marvel to Stratton as he recalled tbe past, and, as he sat gazing from the
open window or strolled out upon the dusty
d**, he wondered that he could feel so
well. In fact a sensation of annoyance
attacked him, for he fell guilty and faithless, a traitor to the past, and strove to
resume his old cloak of sadnssi, but it
would mn con.o
"Malcolm, my 1 id," said Brettison one
evening as ho leaned forward ami laid his
hand upon tlie young man'a arm, " we are
going to bave restaud peace again. Thank
Heaven, you arc growing liko your old
self."
"Rost and peace with thai mau yonder," said Stratton bitterly,
11 Hah ! That will not do, Now you're
gone back tothe eld style. Let lhat bo,
and wait for the future lo unroll itself.
The man does not trouble ub, and seems [
hardly likely to, and we have the satisfaction of kuowing that wo are working for
someone else's peace of mind. Von must
not destroy what it is that has given you
the rest you enjoy,"
Stratton was silent fora few moments,
and sat gazing out to Bea,where the lanterns
of the passing boat and yacht slowly ruso
aud fell on the gently heaving sea.
"And who could help feeling restful in
such a place as this? Kven I, old and worn
out as I am, enjoy the oalm, languorous,
peaceful sensation  which steals over mo.

places that one cannot get ut homo.1'
Yes, I own to it," said Stratlon after a
pause : "one feels safe ashore after tho
perils of a menial wreck ; but there are
moments, old fellow, whrm I shrink and
shiver, for it is as if a wave were noiseless-
ly approaching to curl over and sweep one
back iuto the dark waters."
"Stuff J that's all past," said Brettison,
lighting a fresh cigar. "Hero we are ina
iovely place, and with only ono care���which
wo depute to a nurse. Let's eat and drink
our till of the peace that has come to ns."
"But it oannot go on. Brettison," said
Stratton solemnly. "It must have an end."
" Yes ; an end conies to all things, boy.
I shall die before long, but why should I
ail and brood upon lhat? Let's thankfully
accept the good with tho ill���no, not the
ill," he said fohumly : "death is not an
evil.    It is only made ao by man."
" But we cannot go ou staying here, said
Stratton with energy,
" Why not?"
"Oh, there arc a do/en reasons, My
work, for one."
" Nonsense! Sink your pride and grow
strong and well. 1 have plenty for both ol

"And do you think 1 shall settle down

know me better."
The old man was silent for a few minutea.
"Yes," he said it laat t "1 expected

pride."
"I have not much left me in lifo," said
Stratton quietly us lie roeo from the seat he
had oooupied,    "Let me enjoy that,"
Brettison made no reply. Ho was pained and yet pleased as he sat hack and saw

thrust it back.
Their prisoner sunk buck to sleep heavily, and he was still in a drewsy state as
they went on board, lying down quietly
enough in his berth, where they left him
and went on deck as soon as thoy were well
DUt of the dock,
"Safe I" suid Stratton exultingly. "Now,
lireitison, that man must never see England again."
They reached Jersey in due time, and
next morning were In St. Malo, where they
stayed two days, making inquiries which
resulted in their taking a bout and being
landed twenty miles along the coast at a
picturesque, old-world fishing village���St,
Oarven's���where, lodgings being found,
tliey both drew breath more freely, feeling
at ease now���their companion having set*
lied down into a calm, apathetic stato, apparently oblivious of ull that went on
around him.
It was hard lo believe that the dull
vacant-looking man was tho samo being as
the onc with whom Stratton hud had hie
late terrible encounter ; for in spile of lhe
light, indifferent way in whlon ho had
treated it to his friend, none knew hotter
than he that bo had been within an inch
of losing his life. It was hard even to
Stratton, and as the days glided by in the
peaceful culm of tho liny bay, with its
groups of fishermen ami women on the soft

water to reach their boata, tho surroundings made the place a pleasant odsIh in the

At times ho would go out with Rome of

English atiauger, and talked to him in u
formal, grave way, and in French, that he

Meanwhile Brottiaon had hunted out a
brawny pleasant-faced fisherman's wife,

CHAPTER L,
A NKIIIT ALARM.
There was a feeling in tho air along that
������dark   ahore    whioh   accorded   well   with
Su at ton's sensations. The solemn melancholy ol the place waB calming ; and ai he
Watched the sheet of spangled gold beforo
him Bo[tIy heaving and appearing to aend
the star reflections sweeping at laBt in a
golden oream upou tbe Bands, life seemed, i
after all, worth living, and ins cares and
sufferings petty and contemptible.
He wandered ou close hy the aea, where
it broke gently in phosphorescent spray,
till he waa abreast of the cottage under tho
cliff where Brettison lodged with their
charge. There wai a feobie light burning,
and it shed out its glow through the open
door, while lamps glimmered from higher
up the clitt, where threo or four miniature
chateaux, the properly o: Parisians���let to
visitors to the lovely little fishing village-
were snugly ensconced in the sheltering
rooks,
There were voices just above tha cottage,
and a woman's speaking volubly, aud be
fancied he recognized that of the nurse, but
lett that she would hardly have left hor
patient, though there was no reason why
Bhe should not, foi Barron would have been
in bed an hour ur two, and ib was absurd
to expect her to be always on the watch.
Stratton felt, a strong desire, almost
Irresistible, as he gazed at the light from
lho cottage door, to go up, enter,- and gaze
at the man who had come between him and
happiness, Ho took a few steps forward
under the Influence upon him, but only to
smp and think, ub the voluble voice above
atill went on iu Its peculiar French.
"it would imt. be safe," he thought, with
a ahuudet. His pre.-ence had influenced
the man Imperceptibly whenwaking,might
it not, also us he sh nt? ���
Straiten drew back, and continued hia
Walk alonu the shore, eujoyiug the coolness
of the fiery looking water which washed
over and ubout his feet, full, as it were,
of phosphorescent creatures, while here
and there to hla right, where the sea lay
calm amid the roeks.the waler was covered
with what resembled a golden, luminous
oil, which flashed softly at times with a
bluish tint.
"Hrottisou ia right," he said to himaolf.
"Life is grand, aiul it is our petty oares
which spoil it, Not petty, though, mine,"
he added, wilhasigh. "Ah 1 what it might
be if 1 could hut hope."
He drew along, deep breath, and then
made an effort t.�� forget ihe past In the
glory of the present. He bared his head
to the soft, warm night air, and walked
alowly on, gazing up into tbe depths of
thc vast ar oh above his bead,where stars innumerable shone ou ami on till they resembled golden dust. The grandeur of the scene
impressed him, and, feeling his own
'littleness more aud more, be resolved to
cast bid despondency aside and make a
freah start from that moment, accepting
all Iub worries aa the share apportioned to
him, aud ceaao to nurBe them lo the exolu* j
sion of the good.
He could not help a bitter amilo crossing
his lips the next minute as he stopped
short j for there, dimly seen before him,
wore two figures gazing out to sea, and bo
occupied by their own thoughts that they
had not uoticed his approach. Tbey were
talking in a low voice oi the Bea and the
phoaphoreBceuce���nothing more; but the
tone of their voices 1
lhe old, old Btory breathed in every
modulation, and Stratton sighed and drew
Bilently away among the rocksfarther from
the sea, unnoticed by the pair, who turned
and bzgan to retrace their steps toward the
lights he had left behind,
They were silent now ; but juat as they
passed him���their figures looking like one
shadow between bim und tho luminous sea
���the man Baid aoftly :
"I ofteu feel as if it wero a Bin to be so
happy when 1 think of thom."
"Yet."
They pti'ised on, while Stratton felt as if
he ban suddenly received a tremendous
blow, aud he staggered back a step or two
with bis ban is to his brow.
Guest and Edie there 1 Had he gone
mad ?
He remained for a few seconds, as if
paralyzed, before he could collect himself
und follow the   figures,   which had   now
passed on and been swallowed  up in the
darkness,     A cold perspiration broke out
upon bis fac��, and  he walked on to over-;
ko them���hurriedly now; but by degrees
as he drew near enough to make out their
silent,  Bhudowy figures, seeming to glide
er the soft sand,  he grew a little more
lm.
For he felt that the fact of hia dwelling
ao much upon the Jerrold family had made
him ready to jump at the conoluBion that
this was Edie and her lover. He could
not distinguish faoe or figure in the gloom,
And he bad only hud the man's voice to
suggest the idea���the woman's was but a
whisper, They wore Engliah, of course ;
but what of that ? It waa a foolish mistake ; for it was utterly impossible that
Guest and Edie could bo alone there that
night upon those sunda.
AU tlie same, he followed to see where
they went- ahrinking from going closer,
now that he felt loss aure, in dread leet he
should seem tobe acting the part of spy
upon two strangers ���* while if it were they
it would be madnesB to speak, There was
only one tiling to bedone: warn Brettison,
and get their charge away at mice.
There before him walked the pair bo
���dimly and leisurely that he had to he
careful not to overtake them. They wore
nearing the cottage with tbo open door,
but thu loud voice he had heard in passing
silent uow, and the stillness waa
oppress!ve-*���the beating of hia own heart
and ihe soft whispering "whish'' of tho
feet on the loose sand being all that wub
audible to his ears.
It now occurred to him that, hy a littio
management) be would he able to convince
himself th it thia wub only a mad fancy ;
for the couple must pass the open door,
and if ho struck off a little to hit* left, bo
as to get nearer to the aea, he could hurry
on unseen, and get opposite to the door, ao
that when tbey passed tho light ho would
have them like silhouettes for a moment or
two. quite long enough to make out thoir
profiles.
He aet about carrying hiB plan into
effect, and in a minuto or so was abreast
of tho pair, but they were quite invisible
now ; and, feeling that he had gone too
far, as Boon aa he was oppoaite to the
lighted door he began to advance slowly,
expecting moment by moment to see the
two figures move into the light j but they
did not come.
They must paaa the door, he felt, for he
could recall no way up the cliff, the house
perched up there being approached by a
bread step-like path from the rough roadway leading up the ravine wbioh oame
down to tbe shore with its stream, beside
which, on either side, many of the cottages
were built
Still they did not come, but Stratton
waited patiently, for, lover-like, they
might be hanging back for a few moments
before approaching tbe light.
At laat a dark figure in front of the
doorway waa plainly enough seen, and
Stratton leaned forward with eyea dilated,
but only to utter a muttered interjection,
for tbe figure he saw waa undoubtedly
Brettison, aa he atood there apparently
peering about in the darkneaa.
Another moment or two, and still no
sign of the figures he sought, aud, wondering whether they could have paaaed through
some miscalculation on his part, he stepped forward quickly to make sure, when
he became visible to Brottiaon who joined
him at onoe.
"There you are, then, I was getting |
uueasy. One of the fishermen saw you go
along in thia direotion, and I was beginning to think that 1 mnst get some of
them to come and help me search for you."
Why?" said Stratton harshly.
Because the coast ia dangerous, and
there ia always the risk of Anyone being
surrounded by the advancing tide,"
'Tide is going down," said Stratton
quie-.lv. "See anybody pais?" he con*
tin ued as he debated whether ho should
tako Brettison into his confidence, white
all the time he kept a sharp look about
him.
No, not a soul. The most solitary
place a man could select for a stay."
"Is there away up into the village be*
yond tho cottage hore ?" said Stratton
quietly.
" Yes, but it is only a sort of flight of
steps uaed hy the poople here. It would
be farther round, too. Better keep to the
beach."
Aa he spoke Brettison walked by hii
Bide, and tried to edge him away from the
light, speaking in quite a whisper the
while, as if afraid that their voices might
reach the occupant of the cottage.
And meanwhile Stratton was still debating within himself as to whether he should
tell his companion of the startling adventure he had had. But feeling more and
more that the idea waa only colored by hia
imagination, and knowing in bis heart that
the old mau would smile and point out impossibility of such an encounter, he deter*
irined to be silent till the moruiug���if he
could not learn anything ahout any visitors
who might he  staying there.
Twice over aa they walked he was on the
point of speaking, but checked himself,
und theu the opportunity was gone, for
Brettison held out his hand,
" Good-night, my boy," he aaid ; " you
are tired. Thore, go to the inn und have a
good night's reat,"
" Oue moment, Brettiaon," aaid Stratum, arresting him, " You do not think it
poaaible that������"
He stopped Bhort; he could not say it.
The idea was absurd.
" Well, think what possible ?'' said
Brettison, smiling.
" That he ia likely to turn dangeroua ?
"I have no fear of him whatever," said
the old man.   "There, don't fidget; good.
night."
Stratton wentou to the inn, wishing that
he had spoken to BrettiBon, after all ; and
he had hardly taken his seat before he
sprang up again to go back to him. Before
startiug ho summoned the landlady to
question her about visitors to the place,
but only to find in a fow minutes that her
knowledge was oonfinod to those who came
to her hotel. There were peoplo who let
their houses and took in lodgers, she knew
���yes, but ahe had no patience with people
who played at keeping an hotel,
Stratton went out unco more iuto the
night wiih the intention of going straight
to Brettison, celling nim his suspicious, and
asking his advice ; but ho shrank from the
task ; and on the impulse of tbe moment
turned off to go and explore the village on
the chance of happening upon something
which would give him a alow.
Five minutes devoted to his task was
Bulliuient to satisfy him of the hopelessness
of the task, aud he turned to the inn
agitated, weary, and trying to make some
plan us to his proceedings as soon as it waa
light.
" The post 1" he said to himaelf. He
would be ablo to learn there ; and half
disposed to hire some vehicle and go across
ten milea to the town, he entered the doorway, to start once more, this time with a
thrill of cortainty.
For, as he advanced, he saw at the end
ot the passage a man in conversation with
the landlady. He waa making inquiries
about a boat for a sail next day. The next
minute ho turned to leave, and came face
to face with Guest.
" Great Heavens I" oried the latter
hoarsely j " you or your ghost, 0 Mai,
old man, if it is you bow could you be ao
mad ?"
" Mad?   Mad?"   stammered   Strattou,
������ What do you mean ?"
"Why, as to follow me ?"
"I���I did not kuow you were here,"
"Oh, hang that, man.   I told you in my
letter."
'What letter?"
The one 1 wrote and pushed into your
letter box after coming twice to tell you,"
Letter ?"
Why, of course, You had it or you
couldn't have oome here,"
Stratton'a hand went to hia breast, and
tho next minute he drew out a eoiled letter
doubled up into three from the pressuro of
his pockctbnok,
"You wrote thia letter to ine to tell me
you were coming here ?" said Stratton in
Blow, strange accents.
"Oi course 1 did, and 1 tell you that you
have dono a mean, cruel thing in following
mo. It can do no good ; Sir Mark will be
furious, and it ia cruel to Myra."
"Myra���Myra here 1" gasped Stratton as
he reeled agaiustthe wall.
"Don't make a scene, man," said Guest
in a low whisper. " Of course ; I told
you Bhe was coming, and how the ohl
man insisted upon my coming too. Why,
you haven't opened the letter 1 "
** No," said Stratton in a hoarse whiaper.
" Then how came you here ? "
"J���Heaven only knows I" said Stratton.
" It is beyond me."
Gueat looked at him curiously, as if he
doubted his word,
41 We only eame to-day.    Had to stop at
plaoe after place; Myra is bo weak and ill."
Stratton groaned.
" Yes," said Gueat; that's better. Now
look here. Yon and 1 will start off at day*
break for home. It's hard on me, but it
must Ire done"
" Yes. I eaw you two���on the nanda *#���
ight. I was not sure. But tell me wh.--.rQ
are they staying ?"
" At a little chateau-like place on the
cliff'; thoy got it through a woman they
knew at St. Malo a couple or three years
ago. She was servant there. She is nurse
now to an invalid gentleman staying at a
cottuge just below,'*
Stratton stood gazing at his friond as ir
he had been turned to atone.

TRAITS Of THE NEW CZAR.
Carefully Edncate-i,  With a Llvelr l>U-
���lo.iihn, u l Ear-lly Amused,
One grouud for hope that Nicholas II,
will turn out to be a reformer is that, judging trom Russian history of tbe last 10q
years, it is now the turn of a liberal czur.
Reactionary and liberal rulers have alternated in Russia. The mad despot, Paul,
was succeeded hy the enlightened and aenti*
mental Alexander I,, who in his turn gave
plaoe to the reactionary autocrat, Nicholas.
Nicholas was then suooeeded by the emancipator, Alexander II., and by bis son, wbo
lately expired at Livadia, and whose reign
was marked by the persecution of the Jews
aud Stundists, by a determined resistance
to reform aud by the roassertion of the
principle of autocracy. The pendulum
ahould uow swing in the other direotion.
The personal character of no other living
man is a matter of auch interest and importance to the world as that of the youth*
ful Nicholas II. The world ia therefore
grateful for any information regarding him.
Charles Lowe, in his life of Alexander III,,
has a chapter upon hia successor, which
gives what is known of the youug man.
IN 1MIYS1QUK
he is, of course, a marked contrast to his
gigantio father. He is short, alight and
frail, and haa never shown any of the exuberant vitality of youth. His eyes are
fine, but he has a nervous twitch in them,
in which he resembles Paul I., who was
also short
He has been very carefully educated, and
unlike hia father, with a special view tothe
requirements of the place he now holds.
It is aaid also that, hia education has not
beeu such as to encourage prejudices. AU
though it iB true that one of his preceptors
waa Katkoff, the famous Moscow editor
and Pan-Slaviat leader, his education has
been mainly under the charge of General
Danilovitch, who has discharged his duty
conscientiously. Kven when theanti-Ger
man feeling waa at its height in Russia he
waa uot taught to nate the Germans. Hit
scientific instruction was excellent. His
father's wibh was that he should give mors
attention to modern sciencea than to the
classics, Strange to aay he appears to
know no Greek or Latin at all, but is woll
grounded in the literature of his own country and of Germany, France and Kuglaud,
Ho knows the necessary mathematics, and
has a very thorough knowledge of geography. The prince was well instructed in
constitutional law, finance and history,
although a good deal of Muscovite history
and much that pertains to tho riae of his
own family haa been kept back from him.
It is said by Russians who know him well
that he is in all reBpecta the son of his
amiable mother, Liko her, he ia extremely fond of music ami dancing, haa a lively
disposition and is eaaily amused,
ONH OF HIS JOKES
as a youth was that, if he ever had to join
the kings in exile, he should be io request
for his musical talents aod tenor voice.
He doea not care for sculpture or painting.
To a French author who reoently visited
Russia he showed himself a great reader of
French novels, speaking of Daudet as
"exquisite," but remarking that Zola
"overdid description." Ho readB and
writes English, French and German fluently.
In athletio mattera hia taste ia for shooting,
riding and rowing, all of which he ia said
to do very well.
With an impressionable character, such
as the Czar seems to have, the qualities ol
his wife become a matter of special importance. It waa the boast ot the late czar
that he neve' told Anything to women nor
asked advice of them. But Ninholaa ia
probably not that kind of a man, and there
is every reaaou to hope that the influence
of his wife will be beneficent. The Princess
Alix is the daughter of the Prinoess Alice,
the most beloved of the daughters of the
Queen of Kngland. That ahe refused to
comply with the requirement which com*
pels converts to the orthodox creed in
Russia to abjure and curao the faith of
their fathers is an evidence that ahe haa
strength of will and principle. Little ia
known of what tbe political opinions of the
prince are ur of what are the qualities of
mind and will which he will bring to their
support,

THE INVENTOR CLAIMS THAT A
HORSE WILL HOVE FASTER
Jlurneised to lhe New " Bike'' Than U the
Pneumalic-Tlred Baclng Vehicles Haw
In Vie��� The Driver's   Scat ta   Placed
Above the Home's Hips, and the Axle
Is Close tathe Middle ofthe Animal's
Body,
The votaries of trotting are just now in*
teres ted in a new and Bomewhat novel style
of sulky for harness racing, whioh the inventor claims will prove to be almost  aa
great an improvement   over the   present
pneumatic vehicle as the latter has  been
shown to be in comparison with the high-
wheel sulky that waa  in use prior to 1892.
The new contrivance ii tha work of a well-
known horseman, and ita design ia ao well
set forth in the accompanying illustration
that scarcely any further description Beams
necessary in order to enable horaemen to
form an opinion as to the merit* of the
invention.
One of the chief advantages olaimed by
this notion is that it relieves the horse of
muoh of the usual draught incident to any
sulky whioh he ii forced to drag along
behind him, Every trainer recognizes tha
[act that the closer he oan hitch hli " bike"
to his horse the lighter the draught will be,
and it is to this knowledge that the extremely high truss axle now in use ia due.
Some of the prints which depict the old-
time trotters in action show them hitched
to sulkies with perfectly atraight axlea,
which were necessarily placed far enough
away from the horse ao that he oould not
touoh his hooks when striking out behind
at full speed.
AU the veteran drivers agree that thia
primitive style of vehicle was a tremendoua
handicap in more ways than one. It made
the draught very great, besides causing the
aulky to slew out of Ita course in rounding
the turns, and thereby throwing the trotter
off his stride. Some yeara ago the aulky
builders began to uae slightly bent axlea,
admitting of a closer hitch without danger
of striking, aud hy degreea thia departure
haa been carried further and further until
the modern truss axle machine, whioh fits
bo cloao that a driver oan ait on tbe dock of
a horse's tail, has been evolved. The invention ia aimply following thii tendency
out to the end by placing the axle a'ightly
"I0WS LIFE CIRCLE,"
A PUZZEL THAT LOOKS SIMPLE BUT
WHO CAN DO IT?
Not One In a Million.
Hen ia a puzzle. It looka simple. It
seems simple. It is simple. Yet not one
peraon in a million can solve it. They may
nave been taught how to do it, but the fact
remaina that they oan't do it,
While at first blush thia may seem of
little or no oonaequence to either man or
woman, the reader will presently see that
thia puzzle illustrates a prinoiple that bears
direotly upon the life and happiness of every
woman, and forms a controlling factor in
every profession.
OAK YOO   DO IT?
The puzzle must be solved with a piece
of paper, a pencil, the human eye, the
human hand, and nothing elae.   It ia aim*
fdy to make by one operation and without
ifting tbe penoil from the paper, circles

in front of the middle of the animal's body
and having the driver's aeat direotly above
tbe horse's hips. A oentral upright bar
extends from the wheela to the seat on a
alight incline backward, thua utilizing the
driver's weight, according to the inventor's
theory, to push the wheela forward and
help propel tbe vehicle.
This ii another principle whioh driven
quickly learned to take advantage of after
the introduction of the small-wheeled
pneumatic aulky. Instead of adjusting their
sulkies ao that the wheela are directly beneath the seat of the driver, they tilt the
shafts upward in hitching the horae, thua
throwing the wheals forward and seat
backward, and giving the axle a alight incline out of tbe vertioal plane���a icheme
which, experienced rainsmen say, makea
a great difference in the draught of the
vehicle.
Another advantage olaimed for the new
aulky ia that it will leave the horae free of
all portiona of the preaent style of track
harness whioh have a tendency to impede
hia action. A comfortably fitting aurcingle
aupporta and ateadiea the shafts, the small
���trap runniug from it to the oap whioh
encases the end of the shaft keeping the
sulky in place���keeping it from going
faster than the horse, as the inventor put
it. Straps from the breastplate also assist
in steadying the vehicle. The breastplate
surcingle, and bridle are the only necessar*
iea in the way of harneea, leaving the ut-
moat freedom to the shoulders and chest,
as welt as to the lungs by reason of less
tightening of the girth. It is further
claimed that a horae may be more readily,
controlled from the proposed location of
the aeatcloae up to the horse's head. This
advantage is expected to be gained by the
leverage at the terreta, which was attached
to the breastplate, instead of thu saddle or
girth as at present. An attachment there
alao secures tho check, doing away with
tho water hook. The driver's feet reat in
stirrups opposite the shoulders of the horae
and just beneath the shafts.
Illustrating: What He Meant.
Latter day speakers of Knglish are get
ting to be very wordy and pompous in tho
uae of our language, according to tho dia'
tinguished linguist, Professor Whitney,
and ho thinks we ought to got back to the
modesty and simplicity of our ancestors.
This ad vicoof Professor Whitney i< nodoubt
timely. But in advising ub not to use big
worda and to be clear, pure and simple in
diction he employs the following words:
"Avoid all polyByllabical profundity, pom*
poua prolixity, and ventriloquial verpidity.
Shun double eudentre and prurient jocosity, whether obscure or apparent. In other
worda, Bpeak truthfully, naturally, clearly,
purely, but do not use large worda."
The Way to Learn.
The beggar had a sign up, Deaf and
Dumb, and the passing philanthropist
���topped in front of him.
I'd like to give this man something, he
said to his companion, hut how am I to
know he ia deaf and dumb ?
Bead the sign, sir, whispered the beggar
utiously,
only the perfect  methods,   but  alao the)
perfeot medicines with which  to cure such
cases.  So absolutelyJreliab'e is br.|Piercc's
Favorite Proscription (for woman's peculiar
Shysical "weakness") and Dr. Pierce's
olden Medical Discovery (the great liver,
blood, aud kidney remedy) that ou first
introducing these now world-famed medicines to the afflicted, and for many yeara
thereafter, they were Bold under a positive
guarantee of giving entire satisfaction in
every case for which they are recommended.
So uniformly succeasfut did they prove in
curing the diaeasea, derangements, and
weaknesses for which they are recommended, that claims for the return of money
paid for them were exceedingly rare.
Bnt aince their manufacturer can now
refer to thouaanda of noted cures ejected
by them in every part of the land, and in
many foreign countries, they believe their
past record a sufficient guarantee of their
great value as curative agents ; therefore,
they now rest the claims of theae remedies
to the confidence of tbe afflicted solely
npon the record. If it happens that an
exr-eediogly obstinate or complicated oaae
ii not promptly conquered by these standard remedies, Dr. Pierce himself, and bia
Figure 1,
like that ahown In Figure 1. You may be
able to make one such circle by accident,
bnt if you think you oan make twenty in a
day, in a week, or even in a month, just
try it and get yonr frienda to try it. The
circles must not be like Figure 2, but like
Figure 1. You will soon find that thii ia
not merely a caae of " know how " for
everybody knowa how. It ia a one of
" know how " combined witb " never fail*"
Not one of five hundred young men and
women college graduates oan do it. Mot
even tke one who carried off tbe highest
honors.    The one who can do it is
ONK AMONG  HILLIOMS.
He began juat the same as every! ody else
did, by learning how to draw. Hut that's
not the secret of hii suocesi; be made a'
specialty of drawing circles ; he has been
drawing them all hia lite, and practice
makes perfect. Give aay woman a bow
and arrow, give a man a loaded revolver,
and she or he may sometimes hit the target
and possibly the oentre, but how many
hundred times will they miaa the mark.
This frequent failure, not only in target
prastioe, bnt in everything elae, ia due to
tbe faot that not one person in a thouaand
makea a life specialty of one thing,���the
one thing he oan do but,���and keeps right
on making a specialty of it until he becomes
perfect.
A   PARIS  DRESSMAKER.
There ia a woman dressmaker in Parii
who for thirty years hai been noted the
world over. Not onoe in a huoired timei
does she fail to give a perfect fit, yet this
aame woman made a ailk night ahirt for ber
bnsband, and���made a failure. It wasn't
a oase of net knowing how, for ihe had
learned how to make clothe* just aB she had
learned how to draw ; yet try as she would,
ibe couldn't even makea night ahirt for
her huaband that wonld fit, any more than
ahe oonld draw a circle that waa perfect,
A GREAT LAWYER.
Daniel Webster, who waa  probably the
fleetest constitutional lawyer that ever
ived, wat onoe completely floored in a
patent caae by a lawyer who made a speciality of such cases. The "know how" is
the proper point to atart from, but it is the
practice,*���the daily, hourly, constant
practice,���that makea perfeot. The woman
wbo haa one night ahirt to make in thirty
yeara cannot be an expert in night shirts,
any more than the lawyer who haB one
patent oaae in aix montha can be an expert
in patent caaea. The doctor who is called
upon once aweek,once a mouth,or,perhapa,
onoe in six months, to treat this, that, or
the other complicated disorder may succeed
once in a great while, if nature cornea to
the rescue, but he will usually fail, not* *
withstanding the fact that he has studied
medioiue, just as the lawyer has studied
law and the woman had studied dressmaking. The Bum and substance of it all ia
that practice makea perfeot.
EXPERIENCE NEEDED.
It iB upon this theory, this prinoiple,
this practice, that the greatest and most
auocessful health Institution in America is
founded. For nearly thirty years, experienced and skilled physicians, connected
with thia Institution, have madea specialty
of curing the ailments and diseases peculiar
to women. Whero the ordinary practitioner treats ono bucIi caBe, the skilled special*
jsts of thia Ins tit u ion treat tens of
thousands ; and what ia regarded by the
local doctor aa a complicated case, one that
puzzles bis brain and bailies hia skill, ih as
simple of treatment aud aure of being cured
In Litis Institution as ia tho drawing of tbe
perfect circle to tbat ono man iu a million.
This is another instance where praottce
makcH perfect, It is a case where one man
can do what millions of others cannot do,
although they havo learned how.
Oue reason why woman suiters in silence,
agonies which would make a coward of tho
strongest man, Ib because her inborn modesty causes her to shrink from the ordeal
of submitting to medical examination and
the stereotyped "local treatment," When,
finally torture drives her to aeek advice,
Bhe, unfortunately, only too often falls into
handa that lack the rare ability of drawing
that " perfect circle" upon which hor
peace of mind, her happiness, and her life
depend. Instead of the treatment that
makea thousands of cures a lertainty and
failure almost an unheard-of accident, Bhe
receives that which makes failure a cer*
tainty and the cure a more aooident.
A VA8T EXPERIENCE.
After having treated, year after year,
many thousands of cases of woman'a ail*
ments, Dr, R. V, Pierce, ohief consulting
dhyaician to the Invalid's Hotel and Surgical Institute of Buffalo, N. Y., learned not
Figure 2.
trained staff of professional assistants, can
always be reached by letter, and he and
hia staff know, from their extensive practice, which haa made them experts, juat
what missing link to aupply.
THI HIGHEST HONORS.
Such ia the confidence of his fellow-
oitizeniin hia ability, integrity, and worth,
that Dr. Pierce has been honored by election to the highest offices in the gift of the
people of Buffalo ; first to the State Senate
and later to congress. Such, however, ia
the doctor's pride in and love for his
profession tbat he hai aince repeatedly
declined high office in order that he may
besteerve the publio by serving his patients
who are acatterod over every State and
Territory in the land, as is shown by the
faot tbat he has on file over
90,000 GitATErur. letters.
like the following ;���
Mra. Annie Hutchinson, of Cambridge,
Dorchester Co., Md., writes: "Worda fail
to deaoribe my Bufferings before I took Dr.
Pierce's 'Golden Medical Discovery'and hia
'Favorite Description.' I could not walk
across the room without great Buffering,
but now lam able to do my own work,
Thanks to your wonderful medicines, I am
a well woman. I suffered all the time
with a weight at the bottom of my atomach
and the most Bavere bearing-down pains,
low down, across me, with every step I
attempted to take. I also suffered intense
pain acroBB my baok and right hip. At
times I could oot turn myaelf in bed. My
complexion was yellow, my eyea bloodshot, and my whole system waa a complete
wreck. I Buffered greatly from headaches
and the thought of food would aicken me.
Now I can oat anything and at auy time.
Every one thought 1 would not live through
the month of August. Two of my neigh-
bora are using your medicines, and say
they feel like new beings."
PROSPECTIVE MOTHERS READ.
Mrs, Fred Hunt, of Glenville, N. Y.,
aays: "I read about Dr. Pierce'a 'Favorite
Preaoription' being ao good for a woman
with child, so I got two bottlea laat September and December 13th I had a twelve-
pound baby girl. When I waa confined I
waa not aick in any way. 1 did not suffer
auy pain, and when the ohild was born I
walked into another room and went to bed.
It waa very cold weather and our room waa
very cold, hut I did not take any cold, and
never had any after-pain or any other pain.
It wan all due to God and Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Proscription.' Thii is the eighth
living child aud the largest of them all. I
fluttered every thing that flesh could suffer
with the other babies. I always bad a
dootor, and then he could not help me very
much, but this time my mother and my
husband were aloue with me.
My baby wat only seven days old when
I got up and dressed, and left my room,
and stayed up all day."
DOCTORS FAILED.
Mrs. William Hoover, of Belleville,
Richland Co., Ohio, writes aa follows : "I
had been a great aufferer from * female
weakness.' I tried threo doctora ; they
did me no good. 1 thought I wai an invalid forever ; but I heard of Dr. Pierce'a
'Golden Medical Discovery' and hia * Favorite Prescription,' and then I wrote to
him, and he told me juit bow to take
them. I commenced last Christmas, and
took eight bottlea, I no* feel entirely
well. I oould stand on my feet only a
ahort time, and now I do all my work for
a family of five. My little girl had a very
bad cough for a long time. She took Dr,
Pierce'a * Golden Medical Discovery', and
ii now well and happy."
Any woman, anywhere, who ia tired of
suffering, tired of doctoring, or tired of Ufa,
who will write Dr. Pierce, or to the World'i
Dispensary Medical Association of Buffalo,
N. Y., of which he is President, will receive, free of charge,tjood,sound, profe-jaion-
al advice that will enable her to cure
herself at home (if her oaae ii curable)
pleasantly, painlessly, permanently, and
this, too, without having to undergo the
trying ordeal of " examination*-" and the
stereotyped and dreaded treatment by
'local applications."
