Chatter.
\\7e are bidding adieux each boat
day, and weekly there are announcements of the departure of some
Unionile. Many are leaving to make
their homes elsewhere, others to revisit
former homes, but seldom, if ever, has a
man left with two such responsible commissions as Mr. Wm. Wright, who started for England two weeks ago.
There are two eligible bachelors in
Camp, who are quoted as matrimonial
prizes, and who have been angled (or by
many a lonely willing spinster, but all to
no avail. The reason is now very evident���alack of grit; am convinced both
are good conservatives; for these bachelor desirables have deputed Mr. Wright
to bring out from England two Ussies,
who will censent to occupy two cosy cottages in Camp, both prepared for and a*
waiting woman's presence and hand to
convert from bacehelors' lovely abodes into cheerful homes. One of the cottages
has lately been surrounded by ��� ncw
fence.
These orders as given to Mr. Wright,
widely differed, vix: (i) "One good na-
Hired, even if dirty," (2) "A clean, tidy,
lassie, no matter if ill tempered. Must
be a good, dean, housekeeper.'1

Dr. Westwood has succeeded in re-organizing Trinity Church Choir, which is
certainly deserving of thanks and will
prove a satisfaction to the members and
adherents of Trinity.
I have heard Dr. Westwood and Mr.
Howell have each expressed a willingness
to work together in preparing a number
of people for an Opera; so we may expect
an entertainment soon, probably several.
Rev. Mr. Willemar being too indisposed 10 afficiate on Sunday exening, there
was no service held at Trinity, but many
members attended the Song Service at
the Methodist Church.
Mr. Hicks has a pleasing voice of wide
range and sweetness; some have said
bass, others baritone, but not having had
the pleasure of hearing the Rev. gentleman, cannot assert positively. These
services of song are ver) attractive and
certainly inspiring, for music reaches
many hearts where words fall unheeded.

Thc ladies of Trinity are at work on an
Autograph Quilt, which will be on exhib
at the Courtenay Fair, Oct., 1st. There
are nine blocks, eight of which have been
given to different ladies, who collect frnm
friends, any amount, from ten cents to
$1.00, then outline lhe names of the
donors in colored silk on their respective
blocks. Mrs. Roe, Ireland, mother of
Messrs Geo. and Jack Roe, his collected
and sent to the ladies here five dollars.
The center block will have a painting
showing Trinity Church.
To Mrs. Jas McKim is due credit of
the quilt plan for raising money which
will be applied on thc church debt.
I have been reading of the most   beau
tiful mantles which will delight the heart
of women this winter. Such a beauty,
with tight fitting front, small sleeves, but
with cape oyer sleeves and tight mantle
back; it is for early winter wear, is brocaded velvet in dark blue, with collar of
blue fox and front edges trimmed with
same fur. Rather an odd combination
but striking from ils oddity.

AGIUCULTURK.
In dry weather keep the cultivator
In constant use in the corn field stir-
ring- tlie stfrface soil, for thia maintains the wulch iu the most effective
condition. Never plant any moro uere.s
with this graiu thau you have teams
with Which to btlr and loosen the
ground promptly after each shower,
which eoiiipuetH the surface.
In lonuectieut tiie law went into
effect in July which waa passed two
or three years agot allowing no wagon
to haul a ton wliich lias not a thrwj
inch tire; a ton'ami a half require
ono of four inches, li the law wuukl
provide that the rear axlo mast bu
six or eight inches longer than tlio
front oue, such wagous would become regular road makers.
New Jersey has taken tho lead in
good roads; every region where the
Improvements liavo been made farm
lands bring better prices and farm
products bring larger profits, because
more easily aud cheaply got to market. The same pair of horses can draw
double the load it could on .soft road-sand regardless of the- weather or
rains.
Cut fresh meat Into pieces suitable
for roasting or boiling, put intu stone
crocks and cover with buttermilk; if
kept iu a cool place, such meat will
keep for a week or two in the hottest
weather, and lose none oi its good
qualities. It Is well to change tlie
milk every few days.
To measure your fields, put handles
to a bolt or pin running through the
hub of an old wheel; go around the
sides or across the field each wav,
pushing the wheel before yon. Have
the wheel marked that you may
readily count the revolutions; knowing the circumference exactly, the
length of the field Is easily calculated.
SHEEP.
Start  right, even   if   upnn  n   small
scale. If you  are  not  even   aide  t
buy a small flock of pure bred or I
grade sheep, put all you can
tagepusly in a  pure bred ram,    and
afterward do all you  can  in   having
good ewes. The  flock    will  Increase
rapidly, not only  in  numbers  but  In
worth.
If prepared to keep the flocks under gooil shelter in all had weather,
the one medicine which can he used
to advantage for almost all sheep
diseases is sulphur. Throw it in their
boxes or on the ground where their
feed is thrown. Have nn fear of doing
harm with  it.
M'heu sheep want salt they seem
fto want it bail, ami any disappointment whon they come to their "licking place" seems to set them back.
They need salt as well ns food and
Water, nnd need it as positively as
���flp other animals. Never let the supply become exhausted.
One night of slush and cold north
rain will kill the lambs and Impair
the health of the older sheep if they
\r0 not sheltered in a dry, warm
place. Build the sheep shelters where
these northers cannot blow through,
and whero the heavy rains cannot
drench them.
The farm which is "run for all it is
worth," cultivated and cropped closely, and stocked to its fullest capacity, may yet have room' for a flock
of sheep. They will crowd out nothing else, ami will tlo their full share
in adding to the profit of the season's work.
With a fjjkir deman 1 for mutton,
with fancy .prices obtainable for
early lambs, with tne'small, but sure,
receipts from the fleece, and with the
rapiil natural increase, there is but
small chance for a loss from a small
number of sheep well handled, nnd
the care nnd room and cost will be
well returned.
Grow tho mutton breeds of sheep
it you are nenr a market where you
can sell meat, and let the fleece be
a secondary consideration- Grow the
wool breeds If distant from market,
or If you nre going to keep sheep
in large Mocks. This is the long nnd
the short of tho choice between them.
Thero is as good an opening for
profitable work in the breeding of
high-class, pure hred rams as in any
branch of the live stock business,
tt'hpn yon dip sheep do it thoroughly, tliat tho preparation may have
time to ponotrnt'" 'to the skiu and
reach every dlseusr-d or infested spot.
Protect the ears, oyes nnd nostrils
with tho hand, and souse them clear
undor. Even tnke time to scrub the
scabby spots with a brush whilo In
tho bath.
In frying to Improve the pnutton
quality of sheep do not lesson the
value of the fleece so much that you
gain nothing in the end. with tho
Merino for a foundation, there is perhaps no better cross than with the
Shropshire Downs. Tho bony Merino frame Is thus soon covered with
plump, juicy moat, while tho fleece
is not lessened.
The fiu�� grass of the hills Is especially attractive to shoep, but the
long wool breeds aro at home In the
rich, level pastures, and do well if
tho soil Is dry. Thoy aro not snch
rovers as the Merinos, but are content
to fill up. Ilo down nnd fatten and
lot tlielr wool grow. They make
wool aud mutton rapidly and profitably.
HORSES.
How many old horses eau you count
In your neighborhood worth nothing? AVili they not eaoh eat $25
worth before next spring, and then
either die or Iw sold or traded off
for a song? Why not throw away
the $2." and l>o saved the care? And
just such neighborhoods are to bo
found  everywhere.
It was onco^a usual thing to see
the fnrmersrtJQ&ltlg "itito-town in the
spring and sumwoj- witli tho colts following their,drtms ; but it is now n
raro thing, and the number of colts
lias become very small. The low
prlco nt which the services of first-
olass sires enn now l>o procured nnd
tho stimulus of a better demand for
good horses will soon make n change
again.
Corn on tbo cob. well ground, with
half the bulk of oats, and mixed with
cut bay. makes a valuable ration for
both horses nnd cows. The German
calvary keep just such a supply ror
tlieir horses. Not even the ruminant
cow will digest whole grains without
waste.     Tho horse does worse*,
It is a mistake to train tlie young
colt t6a long with the old liorse. Let
farmers nwnken to tho fact tliat tho
fast walker Ih the valuable animal,
whether for tho farm, the road, the
street, or for any description of
work of a practical kind.
A horso ia the harvest field will-be
helped moro by a " lunch" lie tween
meals than by an iucrease of food at
the regular times; in fact, liis ration should bo fixed and never en-
Inrgod, In usual conditions, and be
should have ample tlmo in which to
cat it.
Ono great advantage to the com*
1 mon fanner whicli draft horses havo
ovor those of lighter weight fs that
they need little or no training to fit
them for use. While to find ready
sale the driving horso must Im; of
some beauty and stylo and developed speed, and taught not to Tear
steam or electric cars, the larger
horse grows up to his work without
special  preparation.
When a horse Is off his feed or
slightly ailing from any causo, bran
mashes with good nursing will usually bring him around all tight; nnd
nothing is better for a horso than
an occasional food of roots, carrots,
potatoes or turnips. The effect or a
half peck of these regularly for a
morning meal will be quickly shown.
A horse is particular aa to the water ho drinks, yet will become accustomed to any fit for human uso.
Train him to tako It before feeding.
Tho working horse is likely to take
moro than is gootl for him if given
access to it while heated; at such
timos lot him moisten his throat, and
take his freer drink later,
tn the best managed stables grooms

attacked In tlio tall ol 1S9'J, after assisting in <lii*(5iHB a Cellar. 'Hue fir.st
symptom was lameness in tiio piglit
hip, wliich continued fur nearly two
years. It then gradually extended to
tlio other leg aad to both (eet. The
sensations were a numbness and pricking, wliich continued to get worse and
worse, until lie prnctinilly lost control
ol his teet. Ho could walk but a short
distance before his limbs would give
o^t, ami he would be obliged to rest.
He felt tliat if he could walk forty rods
without resting he was uecomplislung
a great deal. He had the best of
medical attendance nnd tried many
medicines without any licnoficinl results. He remained iu this condition
for aliout two years, wben lie unexpectedly got relief. One day lie was
in Plcton and was returning to Wellington by traiu. Mr. John Soby, of
Plcton, was also a passenger on the
train. Mr. Soby, it will be remembered, was one of the many who* had
lound benefit from Pink I'ills. aud had
given a testimonial that was published
extensively. Having been benefited by
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills lie has ever
since beeu a staunch friend of the medicine, and noticing Mr. Pettlt's condition made enquiry aa to who lie was.
Having been informed, Mr. Soby tap-
pod liim on the shoulder and said,
" Friend, you look a sick mau." Mr.
Pettit described his case, and Mr.
Soby replied, " Take Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, I know from experience what
virtue thero la in them, aud I am satisfied they will cure you.'1 Jlr. Pettit
had tried so many tlibigs and failed
to get relief that lie wus somewhat
Bkeptical, but the advice wns so dis-
Intercated, aud given eo earnestly that
he concluded to give Pink Pills a. trial.
The rest is shortly summed up. He
bought the Pink I'ills, used them according to the directions which accompany each box, and was cured. His
cure he believes to bo permanent for
it is now fully a yeur since he discontinued tlie use of the pills. Mr. Pettit
says lie believes lie would have become
utterly helpless had it not been for
tills wonderful, health-restoring medicine.
Tlie experience of years hns proved
that there Is absolutely no.disease due
to a vitiated condition ot the blood or
shattered nerves tliat fir. Williams'
Pink Pills will not promptly cure, and
those who aro sufterlng-from sucli
troubles would avoid much misery and

OVERDRESSED WORSHIPPERS
An Irish Girl Thought There Was Oolng
To Be a Party After Church
American women, above women ot
any other nation, have *sne reputation
of over-dressing. An Irish girl paying
her first visit to nn American church
asked if they gavo parties ln America
after church, and when asked why she
said, " I thought the women were
dressed for one." A large number of
the wealthier class, Trom frequent
visits abroad, havo become educated
to a proper style of dress, but It
sliould be so witli all women. 'Dress
appropriately and you will lessen your
expense unil Increase the becomiDgness
and style. Do not "wear dianunuis or
a lot of Jewelry In the morning. Do
uot wear a light or fancy gown shopping, or to church, which is only suit*
alilo for the evening or a social function. Do not havo on a nice, quiet
gown to go down-town anil spoil It
all by the fancy laco trimmed parasol
or a much bedecked or bedizened hat.

Song of the Shirt Waist.
Bow sliould a stenographer dreea ?
���Second to none.
TVIth fingers nimble and strong.
With eyes  that   are sparkling and

A young woman  sits ln a womanly
rig
With her pencil, her pad  and  machine.
Scratch, scratch, scratch,
With 6peed: not fussy with haste;
No poverty plaint, nor even a patch!
Or smirch on her neat shirt waist.
Write, write, write,
From the business hour of nine;
And write, writo, *tvrlte,
Till time to lunch or to dine.
Then it's oh, for a Jolly laugh I
With a bone of a turk to pick,
Where sister workers meet and chaff
In the respite hour from click.
Click,  click, click,
Merrily, line upon line;
Click,  click, click.
And the shirt waist wavelets shine.
Quick-witted to catch the thought,
To    correct     each   grammatical

Not sentimentally taught

D. ' t talk ahout how well off you
might have been If you had never

Don't reserve all your sullen, pouting spells for your own fireside. Distribute some of your hatefnlness
around ln other places, where others

Back to Tighter Sleeves Again.
That next winter ls to see our arms
tightly encased in sheath-like sleeves
there seems very little doubt. There ls
a marked shrinking ln size already,
and the exaggeratedly-large sleeve already looks passe. The new styles,
though, are too extreme to become
popular at once, and they are certainly most unbecoming, says Harper's Bazar. Two silk waists Just
finished to wear with duck skirts are
very odd. One of the flame colored
taffeta, changeable from the deep
flamo to pale yellow, has the fronts
of the waist ln full folds crossed over
the bust; the sleeves fit tight to the
arm, excepting just' at the elbow,
where there Is a queer full puff that
looks like a pin cushion. The other
model ls of shaded mauve Bilk, and
the sleeves are shirred from the shoulder to waist; apparently the silk used
Is very narrow, for the edges stick
out " like quills upon the fretful porcupine," and look like ridges up and
down the arm. No softening effect of
lace or embroidery ig on these waists,
which have Just been turned out by
one of the smartest modistes.

Don't question her ln regard to her

hasn't common sense enough to spend

ERRORS IN TRAINING.
Children Should be  Tnt  ed With Unl
form Kindness and Firmness.
Tho greatest and moat common error In tho training of children Is allowed to be Irregularity of behavior
toward them. At one time they aro
coaxed, petted and Indulged ln every
fancy, nnd nt another they are -scolded, abused and cruelly chastised. One
moment a mother will he seen fondling her child, aud the next pouring
out her wrath upon him. Impetuous
In temper, she will, for a trifling
fault, inflict personal punishment on
her infant, and then, moved by compassion or remorse, seize him up ln
her arms and cover him with caresses.
All tills is decidedly improper, and
ruinous to the disposition of children.
Let it be remembered that example
will go a great way In communicating lioth good nnd bad habits to children, nnd it is required of those who
undertake the duty of infant education that they should learn to know
themselves und command themselves.
Another common error Is favoritism
ia families. One child, becauso be happened to bo horn first, or Is cnlled by
a particular name, or from some other
absurd cause, or perhaps from more
caprice. Is Idolized anil advanced,
while all his brothers and sisters urn
treated with Indifference. Much strife
and petty misery hnvo arisen from
this system of favoritism, which,
wherever it occur-*, Is discreditable to
the parental relation. All the children in a family, whatever lie their
capacities, and whether male or fe-
male, should bo treated with equal
consideration and kindness. On no account prefer ono to another.
GIRLS IN TRAINING.
Tliey Should Wear Sensible Shoes and
Loosb Clothing.
Take a sponge bath every morning
in wator ns It runs from the cold
water faucet. If you begin tho practice
ln warm weather you will not notice
the gradually lowered temperature of
winter. Rub tile skiu well with a
coarse towel until It Is reddened. This
will give you a fine sense of freshness,
and prevent your catching coltl easily.
Exercise for ten minutes at least before breakfast, if strong and heartv,
in the way suggested later; if delicate
take fivo minutes' exercise, and the
remainder two hours after breakfast
or at fivo o'clock in the afternoon.
Wear no tight clothing of any kind,
Tight bands about the limbs Interfere
with the circulation, change the natural curves of the part into ugly ones,
nnd restrain the muscles unnaturally.

Tempting Dishes Full of Nutriment for
Failing Appetites.
It ls now the season when " nothing
seems to taste good," and it is Important for the housewife to understand tho preparation of dishes con-
talnlns extra nutriment. Tho appetite

AN AMBULANT CHURCH.
ill Travel Along the Line of the
Siberian Railroad,
first of the ambulant chinches
for the Siberian Itnllway was consecrated oil July 'J.'lid. Tho car. the
construction and fitting of which
cost about $25,000, appears ou the
outshio like an ordinary first-class
railroad car. excepting the windows,
which aro of an ovaj shape. The
interior is nicely decorated with
lacquered hard woods, and the altar,
which i.s at one end of tlie ear, is artistically carved of oak and adorned
with beautiful oil paintings of saints.
In addition to the main room, which
will servo as a chapel along the
linos of tlio Siberian Railway, there
ore two compartments, ouo at the
rear of tlio altar lor* tho iniuistjT.
and* nnotlier at the entrance to the
cur for tho sexton. The ceremony
of consecration was performed by
the chief metropollte, l'alladi, of Moscow, who lias appointed a monk from
the Convent of Alexander Nowski to
take charge of the traveling church.
Tho car is now on its way to Siberia,
and religious services will lie held
en route four times a day, as pre-
scrlbed hy the Russian Orthodox
Churoh.
A big blaze nt the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton Railway shops at
Lima, Ohio, did $00,000 damage.
The Aftenpostcn, in on article on
the return of Dr. Nansen, the Arctic
explorer, declares that Dr. Nansen
says that he will not again at-
tempt to reach the north pole in a
ship, but will perhaps lead a sledge
expedition from Fronz Joseph Land,
from which place he regards the journey to the pole as not difficult.
Daggers Far More Likely to Kill Than
Bombs. Infernal Machines, Guns or
Revolvers  Constant Escorts Needed
Records of Attempts on the Lives
of Prominent Men.
Why do would-be assassins so Bel
dom succeed in carrying out their villainous designs ? Why especially do
would-be assassins signally fail to kill
the objects of their wrath ? Was It
merely good luck that recently pre*
served Premier Crispi of Italy and
President Faure of France, when they
wero murderously attacked by fanatics ? These are questions often nsked,
aud to which plausible answers aro
hero given.
More than any other persons sovereigns, Presidents of republics and prominent statesmen are exposed to attacks
of this kind. Happily, circumstances
independent of ttie will of the fanatics
or fools who make Buch attacks render them very often entirely futile.
Scarcely one out of every ten attempts at assassination is succesful.
Much, however, depends on the weapon
used by tho assailant. The presence or
absence of uc ompl c s also makes a
great difference. Tlie dagger is unquestionably the surcBt weapon. As for
accomplices, no determined assassin
ever dreams of encuuibering himself
with them.
ADEPTS WITH THE DAGGER.
Tho dagger does its deadly work at
least oue time out of every three.
Jacques Clement stabbed Henry III. of
France to death, while pretending to
hand him a letter; Henry IV. fell beneath the knife of Ruvaillac; iu our
time President Caruot was struck
down by the anarchist Cojerio. Again,
the Duke of Berry was poignarded by
Louvel, and the Duke de Parma came
to his death iu the same manner.
Other potentates have been more
fortunate. Louis XV. escaped the knife
of Dumieus, sustaining a mere
scratch, which was not strange, the
weapon being a penknife, and Napoleon I. In like manner, and thanks to
the presence of mind of a grenadier
of his guard, escaped the danger of
Frederic Steins. Napoleon HI. also miraculously escaped Grippe's dagger.
Emperor Francis Joseph uf Austria
waa equally fortunate, as was King
Humbert of Italy, who was saved by
Minister Cuiroli at Naples from l'ar-
sanante's dagger.
A pistol, a revolver, a gun is far less
dangerous. So many things may happen to spoil the aim; sometimes even
the ussussin's emotion suffices. Almost the only celebrated personages
murdered in this way were President
Lincoln, who won shot in the head,
aud President Garfield, whose death
waa the result of two wounds inflicted by Guiteau's revolver. On tho
other hand, Bergeron missed Louis
Philippe ou November 18, 1832; All-
baud made another unsuccessful attempt with n gun on June 25, 1806;
and a few montlis later .Meunier was
equally unsuccessful with his pistol.
Ou October 15, 1810, Darmes fired at
the King with a shotgun, which
burst and grievously wounded the
assassin. Some years afterward Pan-

SOME FORTUNATE ESCAPES.
Solowski fired four shots from a revolver at Czar 'Alexander II. ou February 17, 1880; Korakosoi'f fired at
him with a pistol on April 10, 1800;
Berosowski fired at liim ia Paris ou
June 0, 1807, nnd yet on no occasion did His Majesty receive auy
Injury. Queen Victoria has escaped
death several times, notably iu 1840,
when a young man, eighteen years
of age, fired two pistol shots at her.
Pius* IX., while standing at a wiu-
dow in the Quiriual ia 1S18, escaped
the gunshot of an assassin, who had
takeu aim from behind the Hor.sos
of Phidias.
Tlie other sovereigns who Iu this
century have escaped death by assassination are William I. of Germany, who was attacked by Ndbll-
Ing; Amedee I. ami the Queen of
Spain, who were attacked at Madrid
in 1872, and Prinoe Ferdinand, husband of Queen Maria do Gloria, who
was attacked iu Portugal in 13.17.
Among the numerous statesmen who
have escaped death we may men tion
Crispi, who was attacked Iiy Lecca ;
Jules Ferry, who was attacked by
AuiKTtlu lu 1887; Freyoinet, Look-
roy nnd Floquet. An assassin named l'ei'riii fired a revolver shot at
President C.'irnot on the occasion ,*f
the opening of the Exposition of 1889,
but failed  to hit liim.
If we reckon the attacks made by
means of bombs, infernal machines
and explosives lu general, wo find
that Czar Alexander II. *was kilted
by a bomb on .March 18th, 1881. 'on
a previous occasion ho escaped <i
bomb which killed thirteen persons
near him. and he nlso escaped an attack on December 1st, 1870, and suffered no Injury from the explosion
which took placo iu his palaco on
February 17tll. 1880, and which killed fifty-three persons.
While reviewing the National Guard
Louis Philippe and ids three sons escaped Fleschi's infernal machine,
which carried off forty victims,
among tbem being Marshal Mortler,
Duke de Trevise. Sixty-four persons
wero hurt and eight killed by the
three bombs wliich Orsini and his
three accomplices threw at Napoleon's oarriage us it drew np at the
Opera House, but the Emperor himself wns uninjured.
LITTLE CHANCE OF SUCCESS.
Finally the discovery of numerous
plots, such ns thoso of Damerville ln
1800���he with twenty-two accomplices had conspired to assassinate
Napoleon I.���ot Morcau, of Plchegru,
and of Campion, wlio was arrested a
few hours beforo he had planned to
blow Lcuis Philippe to eternity,
seems to show that it is rather in
convenient  than  beneficial    to   have
accomplices.
This ghastly list of perpetrated and
intended assassinations snows clearly
that an assassin who is determined
to remove a sovereign or a President
of a ltepubiic should always act alone,
should use a dagger as a weapon,
should be fully prepared to sacrifice
his own life and should wait patiently for a favorable opportunity. If he
acts thus he way succeed once out
of every ten times. If he uses a gua
or revolver, ho has scarcely one chance
uut of twenty ; on the contrary, there
are nine chances to ten that he will
bo hung, guillotined or electrocuted.
This, then, may be considered as an
original method of indirectly committing suicide. As for 1-oinbs und dy-
nnmito, while tliey kill u great many
persons, the persons at whom they
are aimed almost always escape.
Those who havo been studying thiB
subject huvo two objects In view:
First, they desire to convince would-
be assassins that even their best directed and most carelully planned efforts are extremely likely to prove
utterly futile, und, second, they desire to Impress upon the authorities
the great necessity of guarding tlio
personB of tbo chiefs of State with
the utmost vigilance. If a sovereign
or president Is well guarded no dagger can reach him, and. though a gunshot may, the chnnco that it will 1��
very slight. Sovereigns and presidents, It la claimed", should nlways
have a good escort when they uppenr
ln public, and the utmost pains
sliould be tnkon to prevent suspicious
persons from approaching them.
As regards prominent statesmen
who may have become objects of
popular hatred tho care Is different.
It would be impracticable lor thera
to have always a military escort.
All they can do is1 to follow tho example of Crispi, Gomlictta ami Ferry
and wear strong coats of mail. Ferry
would have been killed by Aubertin
In 1887 if it had not l��cn for his
coat of mail.
In conclusion, it may be well to
point out that political crimes of
this kind have always produced results diametrically opposite to those
which the assassins Intended. This
fact nlone ought to show the utter
senselessness and futility of such
crimes.���N. Y. Herald.

buy a small flock of pure bred or high
grade sheep, put all you can advantageously in a pure bred rum, and
afterward do all you cau In buying
good ewes. The flock will increase
rapidly, not only In numbers but in

If prepared to keep the flocks under good .shelter in all bad weather,
the ono medicine which can he used
to advantage for almost all sheep
diseases is sulphur. Throw it in their
boxes or on the ground where their
feed is thrown. Have no feur of doing
harm with it.
��� When sheep want salt they seem
&o 'want it bad, and any disappointment when they come to their "licking place" seems to set them bnck.
They need salt as well as food and
Water, and need it as positively ns
do other animals. Never let the supply become exhausted.
One night of slush and cold north
rain will kill the lambs and impair
the health of the older sheep if they
be not sheltered in ,n dry, warm
place. Build the sheep shelters where
these northers cannot blow through,
and whero the heavy rains cannot
drench them.
The farm which is "run for nil it Is
���worth," cultivated and cropped closely, and stocked to its fullest capacity, may yet have room; for a flock
of sheep. Tliey will crowd out nothing else, ami will ilo their full share

With a fjklr demand for mutton,

attacked in the fall oi 1S92, after assisting in digging a cellar.     The first
symptom    was lameness in tlie right
hip, which    continued for nearly two
years.    It then gradually extended to
tho other leg and to both feet.    The
Bonsations were a numbness uud pricking, which continued to get worse and
worso, until he practically lost control
of his feet.    He could walk but a short
distance   before his limbs would give
oqt, and he would be obliged to rest.
He Ielt that If he could walk forty rods
without resting he was accomplishing
a great deal.      He had the best of
medical    attendance   and tried many
medicLnes    without Any beneficial re-
bUlts.     He remained in this condition
for about two years, when he unexpectedly got relief.    One day he was
in Plcton and was returning to Wellington by tralu.    Mr. John Soby, of
Picton, wna hIho a passenger on tho
train.     Mr. Soby, it will bo remembered, was one of tiie many who' had
found benefit from Pink Pills, and had
given a testimonial that was published
extensively. Having been benefited by
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills ho bas ever
since been a staunch friend of tho medicine,    and noticing Mr. Pettlt's condition made enquiry as to who he was.
Having boen Informed, Mr. Soby tapped   him   on  the  shoulder   and said,
" Friend) you look a Blck man."    Mr.
Pettit    described    ills   case, and Mr.
Soby replied, " Take Dr. Williams' Pink

virtue there is in tbem, and I am satisfied they will cure you."    Mr. Pettit
had tried so many things and failed
to get relief that he was somewhat
skeptical, but the advice was so disinterested, and given so earnestly that
he concluded to give Pink Pills a, trial.

after church, and when asked why she
said, " I thought the women were

to a proper stylo of dress, but It
should be so with all women. Dress

Back to Tighter Sleeves Again.
That next winter Is to see our arms
tightly encased In sheath-like sleeves
there seems very little doubt. Tbere is
a marked shrinking in size already,
and the exaggeratedly-large sleeve already looks passe. The new styles,
though, are too extreme to become
popular at once, and they are certainly most unbecoming, says Harper's Bazar. Two silk waists Just
finished to wear with duck skirts are
very odd. One of the flame colored
taffeta, changeable from the deep
flame to pale yellow, has the fronts
of the waist in full folds crossed over
the bust; tbe sleeves fit tight to the
arm, excepting Just" at the elbow,
where there is a queer full puff that
looks like a pin cushion. The otber
model is of shaded mauve silk, and
the sleeves are shirred from the shoulder to waist;, apparently the silk used
Is very narrow, for the edges stick
out "like quills upon the fretful porcupine," and look like ridges up and
down the arm. No softening effect of
lace or embroidery Is on these waists,
which have Just been turned out by
one of the smartest modistes.

Don't question her ln regard to her

done with the dollar or two dollars
vou gave her yesterday or a week

ERRORS IN TRAINING.
Children Should be Tat ed With Uni
form Kindness and Firmness.
Tho greatest und mast common error in tho training of children Is allowed to be irregularity ol behavior
toward them. At one time they are
coaxed, petted and indulged in every
fancy, and at another they are scolded, abused and cruelly chastised. One
moment a mother will be seen fondling her child, and the next pouring
out her wrath upon him, Impetuous
ln temper, she will, for a trilling
fault, indict personal punishment on
ber infant, nnd then, moved by compassion or remorse, seize him up In
her arms and cover him with caresses.
All this ts decidedly improper, and
ruinous to tho disposition of children.
Lot It be remembered that example
will go a great way in communicating both good and bad habits to children, nnd it Is required of those who
undertake the duty of Infant education that tliey -should learn to know
themselves and command themselves.
Another common error Is favoritism
In families. One child, becauso lie happened to lie burn first, ur is cnlled by
a particular name, or from some other
absurd cause, or perhaps from mere
caprice, is Idolized and advanced,
while all Ids brothers and sisters are
treated with Indifference, Much strife
and petty misery have arisen from
this system u[ favoritism, which,
wherever It occur*. Is discreditable to
the parental relation. All tho children in a family, whatever lie tlielr
capacities*, and whether male or female, sliould be treated with equal
consideration and kindness. On nu account prefer one to another.
GIRLS IN TRAINING.
They Should Wear Sensible Shoes and
Loose Clothing.
Take a sponge bath every morning
in water as It runs from the cold
water faucet. II' you begin the practice
in warm weather you will not notice
the gradually lowered temperature of
winter. Hub the skiu well with a
coarse towel until It Is-reddened. This
will give you a fine sense ol freshness,
nnd prevent your catching cold easily.
Exercise for ten minutes at least before breakfast, if strong and hearty,
In the way suggested later ; If delicate
take fivo minutes' exercise, and the
remainder two hours after breakfast
or at five o'clock in the afternoon.
Wear no bight clothing ol nny kind,
Tight bands about the limbs Interfere
with tho circulation, change the nnt-
ural curves ol the part Into ugly ones,
nnd restrain the muscles unnaturally.

Tempting Dishes Pull of Nutriment for
Failing Appetites.
It ls now tbe season when "nothing
seems to tnsto good," and It ls Important for the housewife to understand the preparation of dishes containing extra nutriment. The appetite
that would rebel at tlio thought of a
" big dinner " will relish the daintily
prepared dish of concentrated beef
esseuco which will prove tu lie fnr
moro nourishing. It is as necessary to
cater to tliese failing appetites as to
plan special dishes for the sick and
invalids, an I every housewife should

appetite. All sorts of beef essence and
beef Juices and teas "will head tlie list

AN AMBULANT CHURCH.

The fir.st of the ambulant churches
for the Siberian Railway was consecrated oil July 23id. Tho car, tiie

ooat about $25,000, appears on the
outsldo liko an ordinary flrst-olnss

which are uf Ull oval shape, The
Interior is ulcoly decorated with
lacquered hard woods, and the altar,
whicli i.s at one end of tho car, Is artistically carved of oak and adorned
witli beautiful oil i alntlngs of saints.
In addition tu the majn room, which
win servo as a chapel along the
lines uf the Siberian Railway, then-
are two compartments, uno at the

of consecration wan performed by
the chief motropolite, l'alladl, uf .Moscow, wbo nas appointed a monk from
the Convent of Alexander Newskl to
take charge of the traveling church.
The oar Is now on its way to Siberia,
and religious services will lie held
en route four times a day, as prescribed by the Hussion Orthodox
Church.

Why do woald-bo assassins so sel
dom succeed in carrying out their villainous designs ? Why especially do
would-be assassins signally fall to kill
the objects of their wrath? Was It
merely good luck that recently preserved Premier Crispi of Italy and
President Fauro uf France, when they
wero murderously uttucked by fanatics V These aro questions often nsked,
and to wliich plausible answers ure
hero given.
More than any other jiersons sovereigns, Presidents of republics aud prominent statesmen are exposed to attacks
of this kind. Huppily, circumstances
independent of the will of the fanatics
or fouls whu mako such attacks render them very often entirely futile.
Scarcely ono out of every ten attempts at assassination is succesful.
Much, however, depends on the weapon
used by the assailant. Tbe presence or
absence of accomplices also makes a
great difference. Tlie dagger Is unquestionably the suroBt weapon. As for
accomplices, no determined ussasslu
ever dreams of encumbering himself
with them.
ADEPTS WITH THE DAGGER.
Tlie dagger does its deadly work at
least ouo timo out of every three.
Jacques Clement stabbed Henry III. of
Franco to death, while protending to
hand him a letter ; Henry IV. fell beneath the knife of Ruvailluc; in our
timo President Carnot was struck
down by the anarchist Caicrio. Again,
the Duke of Berry was poignarded by
Louvel. and the Duke de Parma came
to hie death in tbo same manner.
Other potentates bave been more
fortunate. Louis XV. escaped the knife
of Damiens. sustaining a mere
scratch, which was not strange, tlie
weapon being a penknife, and Napoleon I. in like manner, and thanks to
the presence of mind of a grenadier
of his guard, escaped the danger of
Frederic Stcbs. Napoleon III. also miraculously escaped Grippe's dagger.
Emperor Frauds Joseph of Austria
was equally fortunate, as was King
Humbert of Italy, who waa saved by
Minister Cairoll at Naples from Par-
sunante's dagger.
A pistol, a revolver, a gun Is far less
dangerous. So mauy things may happen to spoil tbe aim; sometimes even
the assassin's emotion suffices. Almost tbe only celebrated personages
murdered in this wu.y wc.*e President
Lincoln, who was shot in the head,
aud President Garfield, whose death
was the result of two wounds inflicted by Guiteau's revolver. On the
other band, Bergeron missed Louis
Philippe on November 19, 1832; All-
baud made another unsuccessful attempt with a gun on June 25, 183C;
and a few montlis later Meunier was
equally unsuccessful with his pistol.
On October ID, 1810, Dunnes fired at
tho King with a shotgun, which
burst and grievously wounded the
assassin. Some years afterword Pan-
lorl aud Bcllamore fired in vain at
Napoleon III.
SOME FORTUNATE ESCAPES.
Solowski fired four shots from a revolver at Czar Alexander II. on February 17, 1880 ;, Korakosoff fired at
him with a pistol on April lb, 1800;
Berosowski fired at him ln Paris on
June 9, 1807, nnd yet on no occasion did His Majesty receive any
injury. Queen Victoria has escaped
death several times, notably lu 1840,
when a young man, eighteen years
of age, fired two pistol shots at her.
Pius IX., while standing at a window In the Qulrlual in 1849, escaiied
the gunshot of an assassin, who had
taken aim from liehiud the Horses
of Phidias.
Tbo other suvereigus who In this
century have escaped death by assassination are William I. of Germany, who was attacked by Nobbing; Amedee f. nail tho Queen of
Spain, who wire attacked at Madrid
in 1872, and Prinoe Ferdinand, bus-
band of Queen Maria ile Gloria, who
was attacked In Portugal in 18,17.
Among the numerous statesmen who
have escaped death we may mention
Crispi, who was attacked ivy Lecoa ;
Jules Ferry, who was attacked by
AulKTtiii In 1HS7; Froyeinet, Lock-
roy and Floipiet. An assassin named i'eri'ln fireil a revolver shut at
President Cnrnot nn the occasion of
tho opening nf the Imposition ni 1889,
but foiled  to  bit him.
if we reckon the attacks made b.v
means uf bombs, Infernal machines
and explosives In general, we find
that Czar AleJcantTor II. was killed
by a bomb on March l.'lth. 1S8I. 'On
a previous occasion ho eso<tped ,t
bomb whioh killed thirteen persons
near hiul. and he also escaped an attack nn Decembor 1-t, 18T9, and suffered nn Injury (ruin tlie explosion
which took place ill Ids palace nn
February 17th. 1880, and which killed fifty-three persons.
While reviewing th'* National Guard
LOUls Philippe and his three suns i*h*
cuped Fleschi's infernal machine,
which carried olf forty victims,
among them being Marshal Mortlor,
Duke de Trcvl.se. Sixty-four persons
were hurt nnd eight killed by tho
three bombs wliich Orsini and his
throe accomplices threw at Napoleon's carriage as it drew up at the
Opera House, but the Emperor himself was uninjured.
LITTLE CHANCE OF SUCCESS.
Finally the discovery of numerous
plots, such as thoso of Dumervillo lu
1800���he with twenty-two accomplices bail conspired tu assassinate
Napoleon I.���of Morcau, ot Plchegru,
and of Campion, who was arrested a
few hours beforo ho had plunned to
blow Louis Philippe t,i eternity,
seems tn show that It Is rather In
convenient  thun  beneficial    to   have
accomplices.
Tills ghastly list of perpetrated and
Intended assassinations sliuws e.early
that aa assassin who is determined
to remove a sovereign or a President
of a Republic should ulways act ulone.
should use a dagger as a weupon.
should be fully prepared to sacrifice
his own life and should wait patiently for a favorable opportunity. If he
acts thus be may succeed once out
of every tea times. If he uses a gun
or revolver, ho has scarcely one chance
out of twenty; on the contrary, there
are nine chances to tea that be will
be hung, guillotined or electrocuted.
This, tben, may be considered as an
original met In,, I of indirectly committing suicide. As for bombs and dynamite, while thoy kill a great many
persons, the persons at whom tliey
are aimed almost always escape.
Thoso who havo been studying thle
subject huvo two objects in view:
First, tbey desire to convince would-
be assassins that even their, best directed and most carelully planned el-
forts aro extremely Ukely to prove
utterly futile, and, second, tliey desire to Impress upon the authorities
the great necessity of guarding tho
persons of the chiefs of Stnte with
the utmost vigilance. If n Boveretgn
or president Is well guarded no dagger can reach him, nnd, though a gunshot may, the chance that it will Is
very slight. Sovereigns and presidents, It is claimed, sliould nlways
have a good escort when tlie.v appear
In public, and the utmost pains
sliould be taken to prevent suspicious
persons Irom approaching them.
As regards prominent stntesmen
who may have become objects of
popular hatred tlio care ls different.
It would be impracticable for tbem
to have always a mllltnry escort.
All tbey cun do W to follow tho example of Crispi, Gnmlicttii and Ferry
nnd wear strong coats ol mall. Ferry
would have been killed by Aubertln
In 1887 II It had not lieen for his
coat of mall.
In conclusion, It may lie well to
point out that political crimes ol'
this kind have nlways producod results dinmetrlcnlly opposite to those
which the nssasBins Intended. This
fact alone ought to show the utter
senselessness and futility of such
crimes.���N. Y. Herald.

THAT ROAD
It begins to look as tho' it was not
he purpose of the Lands and Works
Department to build the road to Union
from Ray's this year; indeed, it looks
very much as tho' the money voied for
this end of the Trunk Road was to be
allowed to lapse back inio tbe treasury.
If such a course is pursued, the people of this section will be justly indignant. They are entitled to this piece
of road. From Union io the wharf,
with ,1 good road, the travel would be
very large; and the want of the road is
a great drawback, badly handicapping
oul citizens.
We protest against the miserable policy ef delay for the sake of bargaining
with any one to do a portion of the
work. A public thoroughfare sliould be
built by the government. It should
gram no favors, but do what is needful under all circumstances. If the administrative branch of the government
may withhold the use of money voted
by the legislature, we may as well abol
ish the legislature as a useless incumbrance.
HKWSPAFEB REFLECTION.
The price of the Weekly News is
maintained at $2.00 per year, despite the
fact that many city weeklies have lowered
lheir rate. A city weekly is made up
ftom tiie daily and there is little or no
new matter set up. The only cost of the
getting out the paper is that of making
up and press work, beyond the cost of
the material.
The country weekly is specially pre*
peared, and its main circulation is local,
and therefore quite limited. A small
community, if it desires a newspaper to
be maintained in its midst���and what
community does nol?���will support lhe
local paper at a price winch will enable
it to live. And there will be no grumbling
where il is properly understood. The
mere notices of what is to take place in
the future*���meetings and gathering for
various purposes���is worlh to any one
the price of the paper. And then the
local news! where else can it be obtain,
ed? Any man who is of any good in a
community has public spirit enough to
to take and pay for the lecal paper.
Of course no paper reflects the views
of all its readers on all questions So
much the better. It is a very narrow
person who does not read both sides of
conlroverled questions, and a very silly
one who gels offended because the paper
advocates something he doesn't believe.
A broad persen is tolerative of the opinions of others, because, looking upon
both sides he sees that all Ihe truth and
reason docs not lie along the path he is
travelling, and some times���if not a
bigot���he is constrained to modify his
opinions.
Shall a paper publish all Ihe news?
The veteran editor of the New York
Sun, Charles A. Dana, once declared
that what the Almighty permitted to
happen, it was not for thc editor to
���t'empt to suppress by refusing to notice
it. This sounds very smart, but does it
meet with the approval of self respecting
Canadians? Is it desirable that all the
dirt and filth exhibited by a certain class
in any community, shall be mirrored in
the paper which goes into self respecting
homes? We think not and hence we try
to keep up the tone of society by furnishing it something better to talk and think
about.

la the artist iu clutrge. A recent estimate of tho area to be covered with

OUB KOOTENAY LETTBB.
Spicy Letter from a Late Visitor
Spokane Lively while   Cows
Citiea are Dead���Ahout Bonn-
land and Trail���Beferencae
to Union.
A person anxious to ieo the hustle, bustle,
and boom of near mining towns in a aew
and rich country, can't do better than take
a trip through the Kootenay. Yon need
not be parteonlar which route yoa take, at
it will cost quite enough on any ol these,
the fare being the seat from Vancouver
Seattle or Tacoma.
My trip was over the Northern Paeifio to
gP'ksnei Spokane Northern to Korthpert;
th 'nee by boat up the Columbia River; on
ii* Nelson and Fort Shappard to Nelson,
etc.
The first business activity to be seen after
leaving the eoast ia at Spokane. This ia a
eity worth vititing. When comparing it
with Viotoria, Seattle, or Taoonit, it is like
eomparinz Union with Viotoria. In faot
the Sound Oitietare practically dead at
a impared with Spokane. But little enquiry
ia nw-eewary tu Und ont why Spokane it
Wili a busy oity. The Spokesman Review
liyt that a business of $3,000,000 it done
through the oustoiu duyaitment for eras
shipped irom the Ko, tenay. Groceries ud
food stuffs exported to tho Koote.ity for
*.uo lut .ear amounted to Jl.OOO.OOUo.c
This Itaelf is sufficient to show the source
fr���ui which Spokane derives her prosperity.
The truthD to the Kooteuay from thit point
it something remarkable, Huudreds of people pausing in constantly from all parts.
As an evidouoe of thi., the train 1 went on
hatl three lirst olass coaches, so loaded that
it waB very uncomfortable lor travollera,
who were prinoepally men, veiy few ladies
travelling to thta,'. parts,
Kroui Spokane to Trail, partly by train
to Nort-kport, aud steamer the rest of the
way, is rather pleasant. The swift wateia
nf tha Columbia retarding the progress of
tbe boats, makes a scene daring to pass
through. The beautiful eoenery from the
hanks of the river, also relieves auy monotony uf the trip.
The first Canadian town reached ou thit
route it Trail. It reminds one of Uniou -one
year age. Lou of building; aud apparently
a thriving little plies. The town haa about
900 people, made up of every class, .see pt*
Chinese aud Japs. There were noticeable a
few of our Union boyi aho. Ihe towu hat
electric lights and water works, many hue
hotels, and lot*, ol shacks, there being very
lew dewllings ot any value. A large amel*
ter overlooks the town aud is going at full
blast, day and night, smelting the ons of
the mines at Kossland. By all accounts it
wont bt long before the output of the ooke i
wwii at Union, will be consumed by theie '
imtltert. Keport it current tbat arrange-
nieuts ara being uiade to oomtruot barges to
carry trains baok and forth from Union
to Vancouver, te carry oor coke; theuce
over the C. P. K. and again ou barges down
the Kootenay lakes to destination. Thia
may be ailuilar to mauy other report! we
hetr, but it it tn be hoped there ii tout
truth iu tht matter.
If 1 waa i.j judge, Tiail is beiug aouie

Loans Negotiated SWALES'   BARD   LUCK.
Sod of a Rich London Banker Goes
" v   Back as a Stoker
DESERTED   BY   HIS   WIFE,    TOO.
She. the Niece of a Cheshire Baronet,
Left While He Was in London Pleading for Paternal Forgiveness Had
Been Married in Secret.
John Ileury Swales, the son of a
wealthy London banker, Bailed Irom
New York ou tho Umbria yesterday
for Liverpool. Ilia namo was not on
tho passenger Hat, but the chief engineer had tho following entry on his
book:
J. ll. Swales, "English, twenty-nine
years old, stoker; shipped August
81, 180U.
Mr, Swnles, nt tliis moment, Is in
the firo room oi tho Umbria. stripped
to tlio waist, shovelling coal Into tho
fiery maw ol tho vessel's hollers.
This is interesting chiefly becauso
when Swales crossed tlie Atlantic before ho was a cabin passenger on the
Lucnuia. This was in April last, and,
Swales, with a pocketful oi money
nnd a light heart, was coming back
to join his wife. She is a niece of the
lato Sir Philip Egerton, Bart., tho
head of an old Cheshire family, and
of Major Egerton, who represented
Chester in Parliament for many years.
Tliis was tho beginning oi the end
for Swales, lie landed in New York
and repaired to the apartment in
West Forty-eighth street, where he
had left his wife. Slio had gone, leaving no word behind, The housekeeper
eould tell tlie husband nothing except
that Mrs. Swales had been Joined
toon after his departure by an elderly
woman whom she addressed as " My
Lady." They had gone away together.
Swales, according to his story,
never had a cross word with his wife.
Her disappearance was mysterious,
shocking and sudden. They had been
married eight years, 'and though
there had been much that was unconventional in their relations, there
was no unpleasantness. lie could conceive of no. reason why Bhe should run
away from him.
COURTSHIP' IN SWITZERLAND,
Hero is tho story of tlio courtship
nud marriage, as tho young man
gavo it. Ho is a tall, broad shouldered young fellow, well enough favored as to looks, though wilh no
more than tlie average brightness of
tlie general run of young well bred
Britons.
Ho met Misa Eva Egerton In Lucerne, nino years ago. She was doing the mountains with her family.
Ho was touring alone. Wandering
about .tlio shores of tlie lake, tho
youug 'pcrsfuis. mot and foil in love
with each other. "When she returned to England ho followed and saw
her often, clandestinely. Tliey wero
married secretly at a registry office in Paddington, without the knowledge of tlieir families. It was virtually an elopement.
Tlie son of a city banker lacked
the courage, or tiio means, or something else, boldly to avow liis marriage with tlio daughter of a proud
old country family. Not until July,
1895, did he manage to declare himself. Then there was a storm, from
which the husband aud wifo took
refuge Iu a steamer to America.
Though thoy had been man and wife
for eight years thoy were ulmost
tit rangers.
Mrs, -Swales had some money nnd
lier husband had some moro. They
took a handsome apartment in a
Twenty-eighth Btreet hotel, but afterward removed to West Forty-
eighth street. Swales did nothing,
partly because' there was no Immediate necessity to work and partly
because lie had never done anything
and didn't know how.
When November came, last year,
tlie young man told his wife he would
go back to England and try tho melting Influences of tho Christmas season
to effect a reconciliation with liis
family nnd hers. The supplies were
running low and it was time something was done. Eor economy's sake
It was decided thnt his wife sliould
remain in New York.
Reconciliation proved a harder matter than had been bargained for.
Swales stayed on and on in England,
until Aprll.wlthbut accomplishing anything of value to lilfl prospects. Still,
he heard often from his wife, and nothing but good news. Ills money wns
not all gone and she wns still receiving an allowance from gome property
She had inherited. When he lauded in
New York he was quite unprepared to
find himself a deserted husband.
The young man made inquiries
among tho few acquaintances ho nmi
Ids wifo had mnde in New York. Such
meagre replies as he got tended only
to confuse him further. He got track
of n story that Mrs. Swale-- had beon
seen often in his absence witli! a man
named Murray. It was said lhat Bhe
had gono awny with him, and that
tiio lions 'keeper's story about 'Laxly
Egerton" was fiction.
LEFT A MELBOURNE ADDRESS,
lie went to tlio general pest office
and found that h's wife, or somebody
acting hi hor name, had left an order
to liavo Ikt moll forwarded to the
general delivery, Melbourne, Victoria,
Australia, to "Miss Eva Egerton.
This was her maiden name. In confusion and despair the young man went
to police headquarters, Capt. O'Brien
put detectives on the case, but they
discovered nothing of whicli they eould
be sure.
Thereafter tilings went from bad to
worso with. Swales. His money gave
out and he had to move. Successive removals left him at last on; the street,
and tho pawnshops got moet of his
trinkets.. Then for-the first time in
his life he learnc i what it wns to want
food as well as shelter*��� to be willing
to work and unable to get work. Not
until last week did he find a iriend,
but the friend was almost nsj poor as
himself. He was able only to procure
for Swales an Introduction to tlie chief
engineer of the Umbria. Tliis officer
was shipping two extra stokers for the
homeward voyage. lie gave one or
tliese hard posts to Swales, wha was
glad to get It and say. "Thank you,"
hat lu hand.
"Anyway," he said, yesterday, it
meant getting liome."
But the Umbria does not run to London, and When Swales disembarks at
Liverpool ho will still bo lacking the
railway fare to cover the last three
hundred miles of his 'Journey. An " extra" stoker gets na wages, but workB
for his passage only. He hopes to
got admission to a hotel and credit
until ho can write for money.
Swales presented himself on the
Umbria early yesterday morning in a
brown hunting suit and a white flannel shirt. He looked the average sec
ond-class passenger, but was quite too
genteel for a stoker. His disguise was
uot effective.
"Are you going tn work in those
clothes 7" his superior officer asked
him. ,   ,
"They're    the    oldest I have, sir,
said Swales.
Tho chief engineer said " Humph !"
He looked nt the new stoker's hands
���long, white, uncalloused. Then he
said " Humph 1" again.
" Well, you've got your work cut out
for you here," he added, gruffly, Imt
not  ill-naturedly.
"I'll do my best, sir/' said SwalCS.
ne Bullied bravely enough, but the
look he involuntarily shot in the rllrcc
tion of tho cook's galley was eloquent
or  hunger.	
THE GAME OF CRAPS.
Tlie Story of Its Origin in the Chief City
of Louisiana.
The City Council of New Orleans has
just passed a law making the game of
craps illegal. It does uot matter
where it is played, whether in the
streets, iu tho club, or at home, craps
is specially singled out as the most
depraved of gambling games, not to
be tolerated anywhere. The game is
of New Orjeans origin, und over a hundred years ol I. Bernard de Marigny,
who entertained Louis Philippe when
he came to Louisiana, and who stood,
seventy years ago, at the head of the
Creole colony of the State ns its
wealthiest and most prominent citizen
���lie was entitled to call himself Marquis in France���was tho inventor, or
father, of "craps," and brought it in
high favor as the fashionable gambling of the dny. When he laid off his
plantation, just below the then city
of New Orleans���it is now the third
district, but was then the Faubourg
Marigny���and divided it up Into lots,
ho named one of tlie principal streets
"Craps," ond explained that he did'
so because he had lost the money he
received from the lots on tliat street
In tills favorite game of his. It remained Craps street until a few years
ago, when a protest was raised
against such a disreputable name for
a vory quiet and respectable street
especially given to churches. "The
Craps Street Methodist l hurch" sounded particularly bad. After Bernard
Mariguy's deatli craps as a gambling
game descended in the social scale,
and was finally monopolized mainly by
negroes and street gainlus. Some fivo
or six years ago, however, some Chi-
cagoans, who happened to be on the
levee *i New Orleans, were struck by
the game as d! fer i tig novelties to the
jaded taste of dice-players, and took
it home with them. It crept into
favor at once in the west, anil "craps"
now rages from the Mississippi to the
Pacific, and no well-regulated gamb-
Ilng-room is without a "craps room."
But While it has flourished elsewhere,
it has heon tabooed in its birthplace.
And now, not content with the ordinary laws against all gambling games,
tlie Counc'l has declared " craps' specially prohibited, and not to be played
for money even in one's back bed-room
witli the blinds pulled down hi front.

OUTDOOR   WORK   FOR' THEM
Not to be Treated as Outcasts or Crimin
als but as Victims of  Disease-To
Promote Independence.
A   new    departure In    temperance
work has been entered upou by Lady
Henry Somerset,    who  is almost as
well  known In America   ns In Kngland.    This work consists of tho construction    nnd   maintenance    of     a
village of cottages for Inebriate women patients.
"The scheme is a sensible and practicable one," said Mr. Uobert Graham, Secretary of Lhe Church Teni-
peranco Society, of New Vork, who
Is personally acquainted with Lady
Somerset and hor work, when spoken to on tlie subject. "Though 1
do not entirely agree with Lady Somerset In all oT her schemes* which
she intends for good, tlds new work
or herp is a noblo oue, and will result
In many benefits. Kvery State in the
Union should adopt her plan, nnd
havo a rural settlement, where patients suffering from the habit of intemperance could be under judicious
and intelligent medical care, and be
given plenty of work to do in the
open air. There is nothing like
sending a man to l��\l real tired to
help his recovery from tho disease of
alcoholism.
"Lady Somerset's attention was
called, some years ego, to a wretched
woman who had been arrested for
drunkenness about   a   hundred times.
Lady Henry Somerset.
She tried to reform hor by sending
hor to a homo in the country, and,
though she failed in this oase, she
made up her mind that the plan would
be a good one for drunken women generally. So she put her tliouglits iuto
notion."
THE INKIUUATKS' VILLAGE.
When Lady Somerset determined
upon her special work for inebriate
women, she looked about for a suitable site, far from the presence of
spirituous liquors, and where there
were good sanitary conditions. She
finally selected one hundred and
eighty acres of land In tiie towu of
Duxhursti high ground, with excellent drainage, and a good water supply, and thoro laid out her village.
It has been plotted in an irregular
fashion, with winding streets and
lanes, laid at varying angles, with
open places and public grounds xit
frequent Intervals, which will, iu accordance with tlie projected plaits,
receive ornamentation in the way of
trees, shrubbery and fountains.
On this trnct ol laud she is erecting scattered cottages for her patients. They are very simple In construction, following primitive lines,
ami beiug thatched according to the
ancient rural fashion, Each cottage
will accommodate six patients, and
will be surrounded by a small garden
for the raising of vegetables and tho
cultivation of flowers. Tlie inmates
of each cottage will keep house and
attend to the garden work.
These inmates will not Iw treated
as outcasts or criminals, but as patients suffering Irom a disease to
cure whicli is tlie purpose of the resident physicians of  the village.
Besides the cottage homes the village will contain a hospital, a chapel,
a building for public meetings, an office building and a general laundry.
Alt of thet* will Im well and neatly
constructed, but without nny attempt nt display.
WORK OK THK PATIENTS.
"Exercise for mind and muscle, with
plenty oi uut of door life, and absence of tempatlon to drink, Is the
best medicine for an inebriate," says
Lady Somerset. Believing tills, aud
being firmly convinced that nothing
could be worse for habitual drunkards than the sedentary employment
usually assigned to them In reformatory homos, hhe has planned for plenty
of outdoor work, with employment
and entertainment for the mind.
Provision is being made for light agricultural work, directed principally
iu the line of raUing vegetables on
small pieces of land assigned to each
patient. Then there wiil bo poultry
raising with the care of eggs hi their
preservation for shipping. Bee keeping, With preparation of honey [or
the market, will attO bo provided for.
The dairy work will furnish much employment, for, besides the milking and
liottliug of tlie product, butter and
cheeso making will be included. Then
the laundry work will be quite a factor in tlie village economy. Besides
the.se tliere will bo a needle nud
fancy work department, together
with opportunity for literary employment and recreation.
On this provision for varied employment whicli keei>s the mind and body
occupied with pleasant surroundings
away from temptation to use alcoholic drink. Lady Somerset relies for
the desired results.
Lady 'Somerset says she will give
much personal attention to the selection of her patients, will receive
them as fast as accommodations are
provided, and will be governed by the
determined purpose to do the greatest possible good.
and for the preservatiou of self-respect, each patient will be charged
$1.25 per week, and will be credited
by the amount of work which slue
performs. All that is earned by each
patient over and above the cost of
her maintenance will be paid to her
when she is cured and discharged
from the village.
SWEARING IN THB ARMY.
Soldiers Said to Swear When They
Have no Thought of the Language.
A contributor to tlie columns of Mr.
Labouchere's Truth, says : " From
the amount of correspondence which
I have received oa tlio subject it is
evident that deep and widespread interest is felt iu tho use of bad. language ln tho army. , But pruetienJly
all that can be profitably Sale about
it Is said by a cavalry officer, Who
assures me. as tlie result of many
efforts whicli he has mado to Improve thc language of his troupers,
that tho men simply don't know
when they nre sweating. It is nn
unconscious habit. A soldier, it
seems, emits a profane or obscene
expression just ns an American expectorates*���without the slightest notion that ho Is doing anything which
is open to objection. It, ls a highly
gratifying circumstance, however,
that everybody wlio writes to me on
the subject refers more or less pointedly to tho Commander-in-Chief as
tho party who must ho looked to
for any reform in this direction. From
private Information which 1 have
received I have reason to believe
that the Chaplain General has been
nmking representations to tliis of-
fact, and that the chief may shortly
lio expected to express hlmsuir uu ttio
subject."
Referring to this rumor, the Boston Herald said of the subject aliout
a year ngo: itis reported from
London that the old Duke of Cambridge, generalissimo of the British
forces, is about to Issue a general order expressing himself very strongly
on the use of bad language, aud condemning in the stoniest fashion tlie
use of oaths and expletives among
ndlitary'men. What makes this pro-
nosed order amusing Is the memory
ol the language which tho samo old
Duke addressed to a Surgeon-General of his army, whom ho met at dinner soon after It lind been decided by
the Government to give official rank
to members of the medical department of the army. Here Is tho Duke's
language, as noar as It can be printed : "Good evening, surgeon-general,  or field   marshal, or  what  the
 tliey call you now, I don't Know
how to address you, you ,   with
your new ������- titles. I don't know
what the   I am, myself; I suppose ynu expect me  to take, my ���
hat off to you; what the,-��� do you
 fellows want '."
t FOR UTTLE PEOPLE. 1
AVOID SELF PUFFERY.
Do Your Duty and Let the Public Judye
Your Work.
It must havo occurred beforo tills to
many bC'lt'-re*specting .Journalists tliat
tliere id too much talk aliout newspapers in newspapers, says The Province,
It fa well enough for newspapers to
avail themselves of their own advertising space to announce their special
enterprises aud to use the space of
other newspapers to advertise themselves.
But tho everlasting tooting ol one's
own horn in one's own newspaper is
not good sense, good taste or good
advertising.
"Behold mel !Soe how big anrl
smart I am I"
This, or something like it, is the burden of tho daily songs of some newspapers.
It fa senseleis and nauseating. Readers of a newspaper form a very correct idea of its standing and relative
value. They don't need to bo told,
every day, tliat It Is a great paper.
If it really ls a great paper they
know it, and if it is not tliey know it.
It is as sensible for a person to go
nbout singing ids own praises and recounting his xiwn mighty deeds. Such
a person is reckoned a bore and a

WRUNG ITS OWN  NECK.
Oue boy who hns Just returned from
a two weeks* vacation has learned
something about owls. "When he first
readied camp he often heard the solemn "Iloo, hoo, hoo " of owls in tbe
woods, but although he went out several timea to hunt for them with his
air gun, he never succeeded In shooting any of them.
"Oh, yon can't kill 'em with that
gun," said the country care-taker
of the camp, who wan an odd fellow,
full of Jokee. " Their feathers are too
thick. It takes a pretty good shot to
kill an owl."
George, for that was the Chicago
boy's name, lstened Intently.
" But I tell you what you can do,"
continued the care-taker, " you can
make 'em wring their own necks."
"Oh, your Joking."
" No, I ain't; honest Injin. When
you t-ee an owl Just you walk around
the tree whero he's roostln' and he'll
keep turnin' his hend so's to watch
you until he twists It clear off. Fact."
Although George wns a little skeptical, he resolved to try the plan at
the first opportunity, and as luck
would have it, ho saw au owl that
very afternoon sitting on a dry stub
not far from tho camp. Immediately
he liegan to walk around It at a distance of 100 feet ot more. And, Just
us the caretaker had said, the owl's
eyea followed him steadily as he walk- ���
ed, its head twisting and twisting until George was sure it would drop
off. Bound and round George toiled
in the sunshine until he was tired out.
"I don't see how that owl can
breathe with Its neck twisted that
way," he said.
At last he gave It up, and the owl's
big eyes followed him until lip disappeared. When he reached the camp ho
told tiio caretaker about his experience, and the caretaker laughed until
tlio tears ran down his face.
"I was just Jokln'," lio said, and then
he explained how tho owl turned its
head half wny around and then, more
quickly thnn the eyo could follow,
turned It back and fixed its eyes on
tlie intruder. Thus it gave nn impression of wringing its own neck. George
can't be fooled that way ngain.

They looked each other in the Ince.
There was br'fet alienee between them.
'��� 1 nm beginning to tally appreciate
you,"* said Cllly. '��� You have as much
cleverness as you have beauty.'*
" 1 am much honored by tlie compliment,'* she said, with a slight shrug
ot her shoulders; " but I should have
prclerred lo receive a lew words in
explanation ol your visit. Frankly,
citizen, what has brought you to see
me?*
" I have told you that already. I
have somo advice to offer you. The
placard on the door of this house lias
informed the section thnt Citizen
Cezaron has a wife, although no ouo
was aware ol his being married. I am
obliged to put things plainly. I ask
your pardon." ,
" Oh I" she repliod, shuddering.
" And what then, citizen ?"
" Then the sseotlon with one voice
cried : ' What! ls Citizen Cezaron still
living ? We thought he was dead I"
" Did they Bay that V"
" I think some  of them  said  that
Citizen Cezaron   was one of the emigres."
"They were liars and cownrds!
" On the contrary," said Cllly, "they
were honest patriots. In their eyes, to
neglect, even for one dny, to do work
for the revolution shows that a man
has no heart ln the good cause. It is
six months since Citizen Cezaron has
shown himself at the meetings of the
section."
" Do not let them blame him for It I
she cried. "Tell them I kept him
from going to tho section. If he had
not been nlrald o( making me uuhnppy
he would have gone thero ln spite of
me. Tell them sol Tell them tho
truth. You pride yourselves on being
sincere." ,
" Don't think of such a thing, cltoyenne. You would only comuromiso
yoursell; and would you select me for
your accuser?"
"But it must be done!" she cried,
coming towards him with her hands
held out. "It is the truth. Truth
always should be told, should It not?
I give you lull permission to have me
arrested If it is necessary. What does
it matter ? What does my life signify ?
Savo him I"
He had seized her two white hands.
She tried to draw tbem hack, but he
belli them fast ln his.
" You may trust to me," he said.
" And if the piece of udvice I am
about to give you ls not thoroughly
understood by Citizen Cezaron, you
must allow me to come back here and
repeat tt to him in your presence. You
shall be Judge." ^
. " So be it. then," she said. " What
mast he do ?"
He must show himself at the next
meeting of the section. Ho must act
wisely If ha wishes to retain his
huppiness. He must be on his guard
against the animosity of Iluscullle,
the effects ol which he would have
already felt had not that excellent
citizen been stricken down by a vile,
cowardly aristocrat. I am the president of the Revolutionary Committee of the Section I'olssonicre.
" Ah I" she excluliued excitedly;
" then you are our master I"
" There are no longer any masters,
cltoyenne. Lenrn to spenk the new
language." And, pressing the hnnds
of the young wile which he still held,
the ex-vlscount smiled.
" I can do much," he said, " for
Clnude Cezaron, if ho will only help
me. But Icnnnot defend nn absentee
before the good, patriots of our section. The section Is about to proceed
to the election of a new general-
commandant of the National Guard
to Bucceed General Santerro, who
has been ordered to proceed to La
Vendee to put down the rebels. It
will be a good timo for Citizen Cezaron to reappear amongst us."
" Yes," she snid, " a good opportunity. And what instructions am Ito
give to Claudo? Am I to tell him he
will do well to follow your lead? Your
opinions, I know, are always on the
winning side."
" Do not Jest .cltoyenne. My course
is the safe course." And he let her
two hands drop from his own.
" I wish you good-morning, Cltoyenne Ceznron."
He left the room, Mnnette stood
motionless. Her heart seemed like
Ice. She listened mechanically to tho
clunk to Iter visitor's sword ns he departed ; the rcnegado, tlio dangorous
scoundrel, the snake in the grass I���
who had dared to present hlmsolf to
her ln the guise of a friend. She understood perfectly that Ids object ln
this visit had been to see herself; und
that thenceforward, holding as he did,
Claude's life in his hand, she would
find it luinossible to prevent his
visits.
That evening when Cluude camo
home she would be forced to say to
him: "You must go bnck to the section." In other wordds, she would ho
sending him into deadly, daily danger.
And what mado it worse was that
she foresaw that he would Bay at
once: "I told you so. A man ought
not to ncgiect his duties as a citizen."
Recovering a little strength she
went to the window nnd raised a
corner of the curtain. The cl-devant,
present president of the Revolution-
ury Committee of the Section Pols-
sonlere, was going down the street
with short, quick steps, his .long
sword every now and then striking
the pavement. Manette swore a
solemn onth to herself: "If you take
him from me���between 'you and me
it shnll be life or death!"
XI.
Manette awoke with a start one
morning. The rappel was being beaten
ln the street.
The drummer  passed tlielr    hnuse.
She listened attentively. There were
other drums beating In the distance.
Sho thought: "Is there again nbout
to be what people called ' a day' ?"
Claudo was still last asleep. Ho lay
on his bnck with ono hand under his
head. He had not heard the drums.
He hnd not stirred.
Mnnette got eoltly out of bed and
opened the window. Almost opposite
to tho house ln which they lived was
a deserted mansion. Its owners had
emigrated. In Its yard wero handsome trees. Its window panes were
broken. Its blinds had been wrenched
Irom their hinges. As tho property
of emigres it had been visited by
agents of   the section.   On the   iron
railing of tho courtyard wns a placard bearing the fatal notice: National Property. But the trees, whicli
for a month past had heen dressed
ln all their greenery, filled the air
ol the close street with nn odor of
the spring. Manette Inhaled it eagerly. Claude was still asleep. She went
back to her place, but sat up in
bed contemplnting tho sleeping figure
ol him to whom she hnd given* her
whole lite till death should part them.
IT") seemed to her no longer the man
she hnd loved hiitore her marriage.
Possibly this Clnude was the better
man ot the two.
He wns honest; he wns trustworthy; but he had nn optimism whicli
sho could not share. She must lovo
him ns lie wns���ror his kind, true,
noblo henrt. Bnt she could notshnro
his enthnslnBms. She gnve a little
smllo, and said sortly to herseir: " Ah,
yes, dear Claudo, It is for your true
'heart that 1   love you."
She hud often heard It snid thnt nfter the first months ot love nnd marriage comes a reaction. That mnr-
ried Hie bccomeB for a time difficult,
when husband and wire have no
further discoveries to mako In one nn-
other. But Mnnetto landed Claude
could havo found nothing in her that
he hnd not known from childhood.
She wus what she had always been:
Eager, Impetuous, tender, maybe
proud. Ah, It she could only hnvo
Imparted to him some ot her own
strength ot wfll, strength ot disgust,
strength ot resentment, even i But
possiblv, a keen sense ot oppression that must be borne nevertheless, wns less a masculine than a renii-
nlno virtue.
And the men whom she had* seen
during the Inst tew months were none
ot them the equals ol her Cluude I
Some were selfish and cownrdly, liko
her uncle Andrey; somo wero emnna-
tlons from tho bottomless pit, like
Cilly ; some wero cnreless and light-
minded, like Laverdac. The only ronliy
good mnn ot them nil was Clnude, her
husband.
Uut yet, living shut up nlone nsshe
had teen doing, except during the lew
hours that she passed with Claude,
soemed to make lite so narrow, so
dreary. She had grown accustomed
to her husband that she now, ceased
to observe him; there wns nothing
about him thnt slio did not know.
The flaws in his chnracter belonged
to nil good men in those, dreadful,
dreadful times. Ho was enslly Imposed upon; ho loved to use tine phrnsos.
Hut ho was just,..he was honest* he
was kind. Alas! Ho was one. ol
thoso sheep who try to howl like
wolves, until the wolves devour them.
Tears enme into Manette s eyes;
she knew too well who wns the woll
who would devour Claude. And yot
Cllly had not reappeared In the l^-use
In tho Kue de I'Echequler. His ono
and only visit had been a mouth ago.
Tho drum came back along the
street. Claudo stirred, opened his
eyes, and saw Manotte sitting up in
iK'd. His rirst thought wns to kiss
her.     She smiles ns he did bo

Something must be on foot/' he cried.
" You had better hnvo Btaid asleep,
dear."*
As Clnude said this he sprang hastily
out ol ted, und begnn to dress himsell.
all the time uttering a perfect flood
ot words.
Did she want to know what, wns
likely to go on that dny? Parbleul
Ueuernl Santerro iu Ln Vendee had
met with a reverse. Thnt wns not
surprising. What wns wanted in Ltt
Vendee wns n soldier who know his
business, nnd they hud sent a brewer.
Tho news hud como the night botoro.
Tho sections wero assembling. And
other news had como ln, very much
tho snme thing. Emigre! hud come
hack to Paris, nnd were plotting! in
concealment. The thing most to lie
feared was the feud between tlio followers ol Robesplerro and tho Girondists���tho Brtssotlns some called them.
Tlio Girondists had many Irlonds ln
the Faubourg PoiSBOQlere. Citizen
Cllly hlmselt was not decided nsi to
what part ho should take. lie would
probably tako his cuo from Curat,
ono ot the ministers. He hud beon
seen at the Palais Egiillto iu* close
conference with Citizen Julian de Uar*
entan, one ot that ministers "observers." Garat was keeping dark as to
Ids opinions. In the Commune a
great ellort was boing made to elect
General Hnnrfot as general-commandant���Hanriot, wlio now commanded
In the section Suns Culottes.
Cllly did not seem much in
fnvor of Hanriot, and regretted the
split ln the Convention. As for himself, he���Clande Cezaron���meant to
speak out boldly. Ho meant to tell the
section that the suns-culottes needed
the support of the moderates, and
that the modorates���less bold but
not less pure than tho sans-culottes���
could not do without tlieir energy to
inspire them. He felt sure that the
section would approve bis speech,
Cilly had promised to lead off the applause. Cilly. at the bottom of his
heart, wae In favor of ltalfet, who
commanded In the Section Bonne Nou-
velle. He would make a much better
general of thc National Guard  than
Hanriot, who half tho timo  waB Intoxicated.
Manette lay looking at the ceiling,
but she did not lose a word. Ah, how
well she knew her husband I How
everything he said corresponded with
the opinion she was forming ol him I
During' his speech her thoughts ran
in these words     :
Had ejnigres Indeed come' back to
Paris? What madness 1 They hnd
purchased safety and liberty by exile,
���whnt could have Induced them to
venture bnck ngain ?
So the Itobesplerreists wero about
to Join issue with tlie Girondists.
Well; what did it signify which party
got the upper hand ? But Cluude had
mentioned ally's name,���had mentioned it more than ouce, and she
trembled.
Cllly hnd spoken to her of the coming election ol a general commandant ; ho had told her plainly that
Citizen Ceznron's safest courso
would bo to follow his opinion. And
what could be his object In putting
Claude foremost  in this  matter ?
Claudo was to be the leaning speaker at the section. He would suy���nhl
he would nlways say what was very
true nnd very Just. He would discourse
about union, reconciliation���empty
words and mere chimeras 1 Again the
name of Cilly wna on his lips. Mnnette's impulse was to cry out:
" Ah I be upon your guard !"
But what would be the use? She
held her peace. Only when she heard
him speak ol Hanriot ns a drunknrd,
her face wore au expression ol disgust.   Claude noticed it.
" Ah, Mnnetto, you will never learn
to like the sans-culottes," he said.
" The first one you ever saw was
Buscallle. He Is the ugliest of them
all."
He laughed ; but Mnnette frowned.
To her the Joke seemed unbearable.
Claude finished dressing, and came to
klBS her. It was his dally good-bye
kiss, but she did not return it us
usunl. Claude spoke ol the omission
as he went out, but she took no notice.    She did not utter a word.
Only ns the door closed she whispered softly to herself:
" You are not my Claude I"
No; he was not the man she
thought she had Inspired with her
own ideus, her predilections, nnd her
detestations. That man the traitor
Cilly had taken from her, when he
forced him to return to the section,
nnd now that miserable cl-devant
hnd found an ally ln Claude 1
Claude hnd been turned against
snns-culottlsm when that fatal taste
for prominence in politics, which she
foresaw would be hla ruin, had lod
to his expulsion from his home. This
thought led Manette back to the
Rue de Bussy. How far off In the
past seemed her life there I And
through how many changes had not
her heart passed since the days she
dwelt tbere I
First, there had been the excitement of having escuped from an uc-
cursed snare; the intoxication and
the newness of young love; then an
absorbing desire to consecrate the
happiness which was to last her
lifetime; then her grent Joy���her
sense of having recovered her selt-
respect after tlie priest's visit; her
courage after that In enduring long
dnys of loneliness; her remorse when
she found that courage falling her;
the happiness that pervaded her
whole being when Claude came home
at night; tlie pride ol being everything to him, of knowing him to be
everything to her; then tho satisfaction of Inspiring Ids more pliant
soul with her own courage nnd energy���of having, as it wore, his conscience in her hnnds.
Then suddenly, after CUty's visit,
came the destruction of her happiness. All her work was shattered by
Claude's return to the section. Her
anger wns hot against Cllly, when
she thought how he had taken from
her her own Claude. And then she
thought with bitterness of heart
that now, while Bhe knew herself to
bo still wholly his, ho was becoming
only half of what lie once had been
to her. She Ielt disgusted at herself, and a vague dread came upon
her of her future.
Old Brigette Interrupted her reverie. She brought her a cup of
chocolate, a rare dainty ta those
times. When she was up and dressed
she went and sat at the window,
looking at the green boughs waving
softly on the other side of the street.
She cared for nothing now but the
Bight ol something thnt reminded her
of the country. Suddenly she heard
Claude's Btep ln the ante-chamber.
Surely she had forgotten how time
passed. Whnt hour could It bo?
She turned pale, and nsked herself:
" What could  have happened '!"
Nothing but what wns pleasant.
Claude's face looked very bright. The
rappel, beaten that morning, hnd
been all a mistake. The sections
had put off their meetings till tho
next day. When he learned this he
lind gone to Ids office. There a surprise nwnltod him : a note Irom Citizen Lcgouve, enclosing nn order for
a box that evening at the Theatre
de  ln  Uupubltque.
Ho had nt once sent word to Citizen Lnvordac, whose wifo had lie*
copted tho Invitation. Tliey were to
meet at the Falnls Egallte, nnduftcr
tho play they wero to snp together
at Piquet's nt the Rocher do Cnn-
cnle ln the Ruo Montnrguell. He
was sure such u plan could not full
to give pleasure to Manette, who
hnd been shut up In her own room
so long.
Mnnetto listened, nnil this time she
could ngreo to all ho said. It wns
true that she had long boen a prisoner, and now that Citizen Cezaron
had made his pence with his section,
ho was no longer compelled to conceal his wife.
The periormnnce wns to commence
at five o'clock. Claude Cezaron anil
his wife wnlked to the Rue du Fnu-
bourg Poisonnlere, where they took a
oabrlolet. The cltoyenne wore on her
hend a tall muslin cap, which stood
straight up from her forehead, with
three little puffs, between whicli
showed a blue ribbon, to which wns
attached the Invariable cockade. Under a lace edging floated her fair
curls. Her beautiful hnir was gathered
Into a large knot behind, from which
some longer curls depended on her
shoulders. She wore a large white
handkerchief, covering her bust, but
it wns open in front so tliat it
showed her throat;   the crossed ends
passed through a sash oi blue satin.
She had put un, besides, a white silk
skirt striped red and blue, the present
made her by Citizen Gregoire.
The cabriolet being open, und tho
wind ln tlielr faces, it 6omewhat deranged the fair curls, but it called up
color ln the cheeks of the young wife,
wldch ln her long seclusion hnd somewhat lost their bloom.
The cab stopped. The citizen and
cltoyenne entered the gnrdens o7 the
Palais Egallte. Manette hurried Claude
along. The open air, the change ot
scene, excited her; 6he wus joyous
and animated. At that early hour the
gardens of the Palais Egallte were
still frequented by such decent folks
as dared to Come abroad���later tlie
place would be avoided by them.
Everybody turned ns Manette passed
to have a look at so beautiiut a woman. Laverdac, who was coming to-
wurds tliem down another path with
Emille, let his wife's hnnd slip from
Ids arm. The Cltoyenne Laverdac
rushed into the nrms oi lier few-huurs
friend, while her husband stood behind lier, gazing at Manette, so fresh
nnd brilliant In her beauty, nmi forgetting to greet Claude Cezaron.
Little Emille wore n rather tuil bat,*
running up almost to a point, and
turned up nt tho brim. It wns made of
pink satin, crossed by two folds of
purple of tiie same material; a bow
of purple ribbon adorned it on tlie
left, while on the right she had fastened some fenthers and gome roses.
The colors, pink und purple, also appeared on lier bodice, which wrns of
purple, trimmed with large pink buttons. On her skirt of white muslin
she had also two tiny purple flounces,
caught up nt intervnls with some-
think pink. One was hnlf-wny up tho
skirt, the other at the bottom. Emille
had put her cockade under the shadow  of   her bunch  ol   feathers  und
Revolution, without much prospect of
greut gain, the most expensive places
beiug only six francs, while the baignoires nnd stage boxes were four
francs fifty centimes.
(To bo continued.)
Claude offered his arm to the Cltoyenne Laverdac, who did not accept it
without a slight hesitation. However,
when she took It, it was with a good
grace ; and small and plump as she
was, she hardly seemed to touch tlie
ground with her feet as she walked
beside him. Her little face looked
charmingly fresh and rosy under her
uew hat,Out she kept looking furtively
nt Laverdac. who came behind them
with tbe Cltoyenne Ceznron on his
arm. He was saying to Manette:
. "I bless the chance which ennbles
me at last to meet you.
"Citizen Laverdac,   blessing    ls    no
longer in fashion.   You must not biess
anything nowadays, you know."
"Please listen to nie seriously."
���'Why do you speak of cbnuce ? Was
it chance that put you the other duy
ln  Claude's   path ?"    snid     Manette,
laughing,
"He gave me permission to call on
you, but "
"But I had given you none."
"I thought I ought to be discreet,
ln spite of my wishes."
"You do right to Inform me that
your discretion was involuntury. You
eould not have come to see me without bringing your wife with you."
''Emille never cares to visit."
"It seems to me rather thut she
pays me the compliment of being a
uttle Jealous. It must lie. your fault.
You alone could huve put such a thing
into her head."
If the Cltoyenne Cezaron could not
resist the temptation to Indulge in
what seemed to her an innocent flir-
tutlnn, the inclination to do so was
promoted by her surroundings.
Tho duy was line, the garden gay.
Women who pussed her looked at her
with envy. Their glances flattered
her. Men, seated belore the doors of
the cufes, evidently admired her. She
felt herself beautiful, and the sensation was new nnd delightful. Theu,
too, the embarrassed air of Laverdac
amused lier. He had turned pule
when be caught Bight of lier; he
spoke to lier in a broken voice; he
hnd completely the nir of nn unlucky
lover. Emillo's mnnifest uneasiness
was anottier incentive to continue the
gnmo sho hnd begun. It grew interesting. She thought she would give
Cltoyenne Laverdnc a useful lesson.
But the walk was short from the
garden to the theatre. The opposite side ot tlie street when they
reached the Rue Honoro was bordered
by bonnets rouges. The two well-
dressed women on their appearance
were greeted by Insulting cries.
Emllle'u pretty lint was an especial
object of derision. Mnnette's red,
blue and white skirt ought to have
appeased the eager patriots, but it
did not. They howled und yelled at
the aristocrats in disguise.
Lnverdac grew very angry at this,
which by no means displeased the
lady on his nrm.
" Those brutes are the strongest
now," he cried, " but our turn will
come some dny."
And whnt was Claude saying to
Emilie ? Mnnetto would huve been
willing to hot that he was calling the
bawiers "good citizens, led astray by
their  patriotism."
The theatre that tho two couples
were ubout to enter wus a very
pretty one. Loult, tho nrchlteut,
inul built It three years betore, and
Inul bestowed such pain.** ou Its interior aud decorations. It stood ut
tho corner of what was then the Rue
Saint Honoro, between tho Calais
Iloyal und tho Ruo Itlehelleu. It
had beon ilrst called the Theatre du
Palais Royal. But ln tlio spring of
171)1 n quarrel had broken out between the members of the Comedle

The secessionists had on tlielr side
the genius of Talma, and the skill of
tho dramatist, Marie-Joseph Clienler,
who wrote plays that, without
shocking the respectables, continued
to delight the suns-culottes. The
auditorium had four stories of boxes
nnd a triple line ol stalls. Under the
boxes, of what might bo called tho
dress circle, were the baignoires,
small, obscure boxes, vory popular
with amateurs. The occupants ot tho

Mr, James Dunsmuir, Charles Pooley,
President of the Provincial Executive
Council and Sir Richard Musgrave, arrived
on the Joan Wednesday and on Thursday
visited Texada Island. Business is detaining Mr. Dunsmuir here for a few days.
Exhibitors to the Comox Show will do
well to remember that all applications to
enter exhibits, must be in the hands of
the Secretary, Mr. John Mundell, Sandwich, three clear days previous to tbe
Show, as they will not be received by the
Secretary on the morning of the Exhibition without a special order from the
Committee and there must be the best
reasons given for the delay.
The steamer Comox started for Port
Neville on Monday of last week from

appeared pretty fast upon the rocks.

tho Joan enroute to Vancouver. Oa bin
way to Courtenay he drove iwto a log whioh
had fallen across tbe road and was thrown
out and the next day was seen with one arm
in a sling.
Siuce the above was in type we learn that
the log had a peice cut out leaving the two
ends projecting into the road and it being
dark these could not be seen, We have
noticed this kind of work before, the men
sent to cut out fallen trees should be in-
strunted to make the roadway entirely
��� olear. Otherwise serioua consequences are
liable to occur.
