Gvntlemen,��� Having received your
generous invitation to contest this district in the interests ofthe Liberal Csnser
values, I have lhe honor to announce
myself a Candidate at the forthcoming
Dominion election.
I have supported the Liberal-Conservative Party lor the past seventeen years,
I am thoroughly inj'ttcnrd with its policy
- a reasonable prnteklivc tariff*����� protection of Canadian' ittteretts. ' A tariff sliding scale which would accommodate lhe
duties to the needs of lhe country. Such
a policy and the gradual reduction of the
tariff in interests of the country at large,
have met with the approbation of the
people generally. ���
On the Manitoba School Question I
consider lhat the Manitoba* Legislature
in passing the-Public School Act failed tn
make thai measure satisfactory to the
minority, who had rights embodied in
the Constitution nf the Prevince. The
Dominion Government in trying to pass
the Remedial Bill has not been sustained
by the country. After the minority had
appealed to the Pnvv Council of Great
Britain, and they [Privy Council] decided
lhat the minority haJ a grievance, conciliation should have been uved until the
Manitoba Government settled ihe matter 10 the satisfaction of all concerned.
On Manitoba rests the responsibility ef
all tali^ious fcrlmn that hat been manifes
ted lately. While my sympathy has been
with the Dominion Government (considering the position in which it has been
placed) I could not support it in the Remedial Bill.
In British Columbia we have no desire
to interfere with this question, our Public School System is as near perfect as it
can be; all parties feel that their righti
are strictly protected by the exclusion nf
all religious teachings from our  schools.
The Liberal-Conservative Government
in the past has ippropiiated large sums
throughout the Dominion in developing
her vast rescourc.es, and I believe the
same policy will have to be carried out
in the future. Our Province hns bright
prospects. 1 consider we will require tbe
mosl liberal treatment that thr Government can give ui 10 meet the demands
for opening oat our mines of precious
metals of all kinds.
Our scattered population demands
greater Postal facilnes both by land and
water; our agricultural interests call for
our strictest attention, our farmers demand the mnst generous treatment that
a wise government can give them.
These and many other questions ef
general interest in our District will be
fully discussed with the Electors at an
early date.
In Conclusion���You are well awaie
thai 1 have a practical knowledge of the
various needs of all clashes in this district,
If elected. I will consider it my duly to
devote tny time, working for the best interests of our Dominion, Province and
District, anil in the words ol one of our
representative men in lhe East���I believe
���'It is of vast importance to create a pure
and exalted opinion, one that is wise and
strong, and'nne that will elect men of uncompromising fideli') to responsible positions, and who will make and execute
righteous laws. ,

to entertain the idea of running nway

promise of great wealth. Tito boys
urged hlin to steal enough money irom
his father's butcher shop to pay the
expenses to Colorado, but this ho refused to do.
Kyle und three companions went to

Thirty-fourth street yesterday morning, the lad tell.ng Ills mother he was

freight train to Spuyten Duyvil. Here

Tbey managed to bind up the
wounds with their handkerchiefs nnd
the lining of one of tlielr coats. Then
they carried Kyle to the banks of the
Hudson, nearby, and mude a bed for
him on the grass. The station agent
at Spuyten Duyvil had seen the accident and ran to the sput. When they
saw liim coming Kyle's companions

The station ugent summoned Policeman Shea, who called an ambulance

As soon as the policeman hnd left

siring ���f Diamonda anil Pearls Which
Noun Will Carry Off.
It Is stated on what appeurs to be
good authority that in one oi the
parks ln the Spanish capital city oi
Madrid a magnificent ring hangs by
a eilken cord about tbe neck of the
statue of tlie Maid ol Almodma, the
patron saint ol Madrid. This ring,
though set with diamonds und pearls,
ls nevertheless entirely unguarded.
Tlio police pay no uttuntion to It,
nor is there any provision made for
watching It by special officers, bo-
cause, it Is not believed that any
thiol, however daring, would venture
to npproprlato it to Ids own use,
ami wheu tlio history oi thu ring is
considered, it is hardly to be wondered at tliat a superstitious people
prcier to givo it a wide berth.
According to the story tliat ls
told ol It, tho ring was made Ior
King Alfonso XII., the father of the
present boy King of .Spain. Allouso
presented it to Ills cousin Mercedes
on tho dny ol their betrothal. How
short her married lifo was all know;
and on Iter death tho King presented
the ring to his grandmother, Queen
Christina. Shortly alterwurd Queen
Christina died, and the King gave the
ring to his sister, the Infanta tlol
Pilar, who died within the month following. The ring was then given to
the youngest daughter of tbe Due de
Montpensior. In Ic-sb than three
months she died, and Alfonso, by this
time fearing that thero was some
unlucky omen connected with the bauble, put It away Irom all the living.
Henco it was hung about tho neck
ol tlio bronze elflgy of the Maid of
Almodma, tvhero It appears as Bttfo
as though surrounded by a cordon of
""" Hannah," said the landlady of a
boarding house to her new maid,
"when there's any bad news, particularly private afflictions, always let
the boarders know it before dinner.
It may seem strange to yon, Hannah,
but such little things make a great
dllferenco ln the eating In the course
ol the year."
The Press is Subjected to it More
Than Most People Know.'
Jobustone Murray, of Womankind,
has not escaped tho advertising dead*
lieut, and he tells some amusing Btorles
of tho ingenuity displayed by people
who appreciate tho value ot advertising, but do uot want to pay Ior
spacu. Among thom are the girl who
ivritus tlie touching little story ol a
poor family whose distressed mother
found hope aud comfort and economy
in the I,right colors of certain dyes.
Then there aro tlie story writers wbo
work In mentlou of certain firms'
goods, all so innocently, you know,
which .-oiik'timi'B taupe tho blue pencil
of the sharp-eyed editor, aud the result is tliat for each such mention the
uuthoross gets a dollar bill, by prcur*
rnugcmciit with the manufacturer���a
very cheap, gilt-edge advertisement.
Murray is uot alone in these experiences, l'erhaps no business is more put
upon by " spongers" thun tliat of the
newspaper men. "This iB for tbe
church,' or "Tbls is for our society's
benefit," or " This is to help our club
along with Its game or entertainment," Is supposed���or at least ls ln
muny cases offered us an excuse���to
cover much dead-boating, uud that,
too, by people who would not think
of spongiug a meal at a hotel or
secreting themselves on a train in
order to get a free ride. It Is uot Just
to the newspaper, nor to those who
are always ready to pay lor what
they get. And some of them uffect indignation when the newspaper refuses
to work for nothing 1 Vet these people
pay their Janitors, their coal dealers,
their hall rent, etc. They see that
these men must be paid to live, but-
well, perhaps tho newspaper men nre
to blame Ior making themselves cheap
and giviqg out tbe Impression that
they cau live un wind uud gratitude.
Then tliere is uuotlter class who
can't get lid of the notion that the
purchase of a dollar's worth ol space
entitles them to unlimited free
notices. Some even go so l'ur as to
send la a $5 notice a day or two
ahead of tbeir advertisement. Sometimes the good-natured newspaper
mau allows it to go, and ls disgusted to find a $1 advertisement follows, and more disgusted when his
patron presumes to ask for more
free puffs on the strength of it. The
little dollar ad. is olten badly
strained  by banging so much on It.
Tho average dally newspaper, even
the most rigid ol them, gives annually thousands of dollars' worth of
free advertising to its city customers, nino-tenths of which ought to be
paid Ior. Because a man buys un
advertisement ls no valid reason
why be should demand a bonus iu
free advertisement. When he hires n
man lor a month he does aot feel
thut he hus any claim on bim tor a
week's work thrown In. When u
mun buys a dollar's worth of groceries ba does not expect the grocer
to present bim with a quarter's
worth of sugar. Even the tailor
who makes a suit oi clothes to order does not present each customer
with a pair of pants. He would
laugh at such a suggestion. II tbe
newspaper man had the nerve, and
sell-respect, and business habits ol
the grocer, tailor and other tradesmen, the hard-worked toilers ol the
press would be remunerated more ln
keeping with their talents and the
work they do than they now are,
and they would have in a greater
degree the respect of those to whom
they cater ln a business way. Don't
you think so?
Strike Agitator* Am Urailnally Hecomlug
Very Unpopular.
The promoters of strikes urgue to
their comrades thut unsuccessful efforts are nevertheless ultimately beneficial ; but study ol the subject hus
led me to take the opposite view, viz,,
that all strikes ot skilled workmen
are, ln the end, harmful to the participants. No one single cause has done
more, in my opinion, to hasten the Introduction ol entirely automatic machinery ln operations where a certain
degree ol skilled labor was considered
indispensable, than strikes on the part
ol such skilled employees. Numerous
Instances might be recalled where
large manulacturers have, on account
of strikes, cheerfully expended Immense sums of money ln perfecting
automatic machinery, not primarily
to eflect economy ln wages, but ns an
Insurance ngnlnst lurther dunger
from such causes.
A notable instance ol this nature occurred u fow years ugo ut ono of tho
largest Iron and steel works In the
world. In a certuln department spo-
clully skilled men wero ablo to make
wages which now seem Incredible;
thoy were, however, paid a percentage upon the tonnage, nntl, owing to
enormous output, the profits ol theso
operatives exceeded In some years
that of many successful manufacturers having large capital at stake.
These men considered themselves Indispensable, and struck, not for higher
wages or shorter hours, but at the
dictation of outsiders. When work
was resumed they found their occupation gone torever; automatic machinery had supplanted the lormer skilled
labor. I do not believe that any employee (I am one myself) is Indispensable, and many highly skilled and
otherwise valuable operatives have,
unfortunately lor themselves, failed to
appreciate this lact until too late.���

Deliberate Murder Committed in a

William Wagner, prominent ln west

almost Instantly killed yestcrduy
afternoon ut Luke und Market streets
by a former Iriend, M. J. Wyckott,
snys tbo Chicago Chronicle. The shooting was the result of trouble betweon
tbo children of the two men, both
"f whom have borue excellent reputations In their neighborhood. Wyckot!
was arrested immediately after the
fatality, and Is now locked up in the
Harrison street police station. The
body ol Ids victim lies at the county
Tho shooting took place shortly
after 2 o'clock In the afternoon, and
hundreds ot excited spectators ut
once crowded around the two men.
Wyckolf made un attempt to escape,
but was caught before ho bad crossed the street und placed lu charge
of an officer.
Where the two men met Is not
known. They wore walking slowly
nnd they had just descended the short
Illght ol steps which loads to the
bridge, when WyckoII stopped, slowly drew a revolver Irom his pocket
and leveled It at Ills companion.
Wagner apparently did not notice
the 'act nnd made no attempt to
deiend himself. Wyckoff coolly pulled the trigger, and the bullet crashed
through Wagner's ear Into bis bruin.
As he staggered irom the elfect . ot
the shot Wyckoff stepped in Iront ol
him and tired again, the second ball
passing directly through the heart ol
his victim.
Wagner fell to theground without a

Instant to see that his work was complete, turned aud ran south ln Market
street, carrying his still smoking re*
volver ln his left hand. Hundreds of
people were already running toward
the sceno of the all ray, and a number
of them intercepted the retreat of the
fugitive. He then attempted to retrace his steps, but Officer James
Swift, of the Central Station, succeeded ln capturing hiul und wresting the
revolver from his possession. Numbers
of people who had been eyewitnesses
ol the manner ln which the crime was
committed rushed upou officer Swift
and his prisoner and made an attempt
to take Wagner away.
" Lyncb him 1" wus the general cry,
but the crowd lacked a determined
leader, and the officer Iuul little difficulty in putting handcuffs on his prisoner. With his club he uttempted to
keep the crowd buck. Officer O'Brien
displayed his revolver, and the crowd
fell back. A riot call was sent In
when the crowd made a third demonstration, and la a short time a hall
dozen detectives arrived, reinforced
witli a putrol wagon full of uniformed
officers. By this time tbe crowd had
become so large as to bu almost uncontrollable, und the officers were forced
to use their clubs, to cool the ardor
of Bome of the more adventurouB.
During this time Wagner was lying
on the sidewalk, with his hoad slightly raised on the arm of a spectator.
The wounded man showed no signs ol
returning consciousness, aad within
ten minutes hiB heart had apparently
stopped beating. His body wus placed
ln the patrol wagon, which Btarted
for ltolston's uudertaking rooms, No.
11 Adams street, but signs of life were
thought visible, and he jvas removed
to the couaty hospital. Life had departed before he reached that place,
und his remains were taken to the
county morgue.
Tlio troubm which led to the tragedy
is of only a lew days'* stuuding aud
wits brought about by tho children
of tbo two men. Wagner lived at
No. 000 Walnut street und bis murderer occupied tlie house dlroctly opposite. No. 9117 Walnut Btreet. Wagner wus tho futher ol three children,

children Wednesday afternoon caused
Wagner to cull upon Mrs. WyckoW.

Poling a Boat Across tli
Above Niagara,
Nlngnrn Fulls report: K. O. Heine,
a Prussian, 50 years old, made one ot
the most perilous trips this atternoon
that haB ever been made on the Niagara River. In a canoe-shaped boat,
10 leet ln length, he sailed trom the
milling district through the hydraulic
canal out Into the rapids, and over
to within 200 leet ol Gout Island
and then returned without any mishap whatever.
Mr. Heine arrived ln this city trom
Allaire, 0., threo months ugo, nud
with his wile and threo children lias
rooms at the Cascade Hotel on ltlvor-
way. He built the boat that he made
the trip In to-day. It Is ubout 10 leet
long und three leet wide at the centre,
tapering towards the etuis.
At il o'clock this alternoon Heine's
cunoe, propelled by a paddle, darted
out ol tho canal, Into the river. At the
time there were but a lew persons
along the banks, but In less than 10
minutes there wero over 2,000 persons lined ulong the bunk, watching
the bold navigator.
The river was lull ol Ice and everybody thought Heine and his bout
would get wedged ln It und bo curried
over the lulls. Thirty leet Irom the
dock he put down his puddle und took,
up a l()-foot pole, with a steol tip on
It, and pushed the bout out ulong the
reel to within a stone's throw ol (lout
Island. Here the boat seemed to
be wedged on a rock, and ub It swung
round and round with the current
the spectators expected to see It
overturned und Heine sent over the
lulls. Among the spectators on
Goat Island were the nuvigutor's wile
und children, und the womun called
out words of encouragement to him,
while the Reservation officers were
there to arrest him if he landed. He
stnyed where he wus, dipping wuter
from the river with his hands and
drinking and bathing his lace. Alter
resting about ten minutes he Btarted
on the return trip. This was Blower
work, and a painlul suspense hung
over the crowds thut watched Heine.
He took a course that seemed to
be tree ol Ice und where the water
did not run very swift, and poled his
craft up stream, hts chief aim seeming to be to keep out of reach ot the
boiling water that was oa either
side ol him, rushing with lightning
speed toward the edge ot the lulls.
It could be seen from the shore thut
he hud u hard Job. He seemed to be
exerting all his strength, but If he
did suffer bo gained his point, nnd
pusslng the Niagara Falls paper mill,
drifted down uguin aud slowly turned
Into the quiet waters of the cunul.
After puddling about two or three
minutes, be stepped ashore, und the
grout crowd thut bud gathered
shouted themselves hoarse. Heine
did not seem to mind the enthusiusm.
Beads ol perspiration wore on his forehead, tlie cords nnd muscles ot liis
urms stood out, showing the great
tension there had been upon them,
and his whole body trembled. It
wus not nccessury for Heine to suy
thut he bad Ielt the trip, und wus
glud that he was through with It.
The man's condition plainly showed
this to be the case.
" Will you make any more trips ?"
ho was atfked.
" Ves, all through tho summer," replied Heine; " this was only an experiment. My next trip will be to Goat
Island and from there to the Canadian
shore. I have breasted rapids ln Switzerland that the Niagara rapids cannot be comparetl with. All that ls
required is nervo and strength, and I
think I have shown that I possess

Indicates honesty of purpose. To-day
he was dressed in dark trousers and

Heine Intends to make arrangements

exhibition sailings two or three timea

Miss Mary Graco Thornton, daughter of Sir Edward Thornton, describes
" The Crowning ot u Cznr '��� la the Century for May. Miss Thornton writes
ub follows:
Tho servlco began with the Kmperor s confession ot faith, which won
bo like our own that I could follow
It easily. Tho metropolitan camo forward to heur him make It, aud responded at the end, " Slay the grace
of tho Holy Ghost ublue with thee.'

tho rost; but they suy thut the prayers ure wouderlully beautiful. From
tlio first moment to the luat tho Km-
pcror wns tlio central figure. If ono
looked nway, It was only to seo how
overy one wns watchlag him. Hie
voice certainly trembled when ho began to read, hut it gulnod confidence
us ho wont on, nnd ho looked (as he
always doeB, to my mind, with or
without a crown) every Inch an Emperor. Throughout the wholo ser-
vico he hore himself with great dignity, and in a manner worthy of such
an occasion.
After the creed and the ronding or
the epistle and the gospel, he ordered
tlte imperial mantle to be brought,
which wns clasped round his neck with
the collar of St. Andrew, lilted the
magnificent crown from the cushion
on which It was presented, und receiving tlte benediction from the
metropolitan, " In the name ot the
Futher, and of the Son, aud of the
Holy Ghost," placed It on his bead,
and, holding the sceptre in his right
hand and the globe tn bis left, seated
himself upon his throne, looking a
very noble presentment of a Czur ol
ull the Russlas. The Empress seemed
to have caught something of his uir,
for thnt day a certain statellness
was udded to nil her charm, She wns
very pule, but I thought that I hud
never seen her look more sympathetic.
She now left her place, and went to
kneel before her husband on a cushion
which had been placed for her at his
feet by Prince Waldomar.
The Czar lifted his own crown from
his head nnd placed It an instant on
hers before replacing It. Then, taking
her crown from Its bearer, he held It
ln place while the four dames d'hon-
neur fastened It securely to her bead.
These were CountosB Adlerberg, Princess Vlasemakl, Princess Kotchoubey
and onto I did not 'know���tho oldest In
rank in Russia, I believe; and they
also helped to fasten the Imperial
mantle of cloth-of-gold and ermine, of
great weight. As the Czarina returned
to her place, she turned a face full of
emotion to her husband, and held out
hor hand, and, he taking It and stooping down, they Icl-soil each other. His
Majosty now received the sceptre and
globe again, and Emperor aud Empress
stood crowned before their thrones
and wearing the imperial mantles,
while the priests proclaimed the titles
of the autocrat of all the Russias at
full length, and tlie beautiful chants
tbat followed were drowned In a
clanging of bells and a noise that
seemed loud enough to announce the
coronation to the whole of Russia.
During the singing the imperial family left their places to come and con*
gratulate the Emperor and Empress,
the little Czarowitz first. There was
much embracing and plenty of tears.
It was after this that, as the noise
of the bells and cannon died away,
the Emperor took the book from tho
metropolitan and knelt to pray, reading the prescribed words, he alone
'kneeling, while priests and congregation stood.
As tbe Emperor rose from his knees
we all *knelt down, and then followed
the prayer of priests and congregation
for him, led by the metropolitan, the
Emperor alone standing in the crowded church. As I have said before, thle
was the most Impressive moment of

"No 1     I   am very unhappy."

" That, I think," returned the lirst
speaker, " ls becauso a woman who
loves a mnn expecta hlra to know all
that is ln her heart without her telling him.    And probably vice veraa."
'Bhe loregolng dialogue was taking
place between two young women over
a cosy wood lire ln a charming boudoir with a well-laden tea-table between them. The tirst speaker waa
fur-clad, and looked ae though she
hnd como oil a Journey; the other
wore that dainty and eminently Hn
de slecle garment, the tea-gown,
���which, let ns hope, the next century
will atill Hnd in vogue. And, as a
matter of fact, Mrs. Tower had ten
minutes earlier arrived to be! the
guest ot her Rlrlhood's most Intimate
friend, now Mrs. Delano.
Nelly Tower was a small, lair woman, rather ln the Dresden, china
style, and Kthel Delane Waa dark,
handsome, with a something too imperious air, aa though It were hers
to command. And Indeed, having
been an heiress since the aee ol 0.
nnd high-spirited and wlllnl with
that, her own will had been a law
unto her nnd to those with whom
she habitually dwelt. A handsome
yonng womnn, with eight thousand a
year, and decided views, ls npt ta become a despot. And alas) having
one's own way and being able to -set
one's heel on the necks ol one's dependents la not tho aurest road either
to being happy or beloved, and to be
hnppy nnd beloved were two thinga
which Mra. Delane very ardently desired. Unlortunntely lor her, there
were contradictory elements in her
character, nnd these made
ber unhappy. Bite was at
the same time tyrannical
nnd tender-hearted; sbe waa arbitrary, bnt had a strong sense ol 'Justice ; wilful, bnt with nn Immense desire for approbation; proud hnd tm-
perlona, yet with tender, feminine
longings In secret���whllat ehe appeared to stand erect and defiant, she
longed to lean and cling. Very few
people understood her, and she did
not underatand herself at all.
Aftor a slight pnnae, Mra. Delane replied to ber Iriend:
" I am nlwaya trying to Hnd ont

every day It becomea morel dltllcult.
Kvery day he seems to grow colder,
and often he looka annoyed and hurt,

away on Friday I cannot Imagine.'
"Did he go suddenly, unespected-
ly?" nsked Mrs. Tower.
"Tee; he had said nothing nbout

"And did ������you remonstrate? Did
you beg him to stay?"
"No," with a proud gesture other

"Nonsense, my dear," retorted her
iriend briskly, "the curse ol having
money ls a very easy one to bear.
Not having It ls a curse, 11 you like.
But what you suy ls absurd, unjust
and untrue. I had plenty ol opportunity ot observing Captain Delane

would greet him with smiles and begin a new and happier lite.

Mrs. Delane, alter many expressions
ot altectlonate sympathy, complied,
but was back again In twenty minutes' time, armed with the morning
papers to read to her disabled Iriend,
"I wish," said Mrs. Tower, "that
you would, like a good creature, read
my letters to me tirst."
"Is it sale?" asked Ethel, playfully. " I know you are a shocking
flirt, and correspond with all sorts
ol young men."
Mrs. Tower laughed.
" There ls nothing that I am atrald

" but, 11 you come upon anything too
ardent, you can put it on one side
until I am able to read it myselt."
Mrs. Delane took up tbe Uttle
packet, and examined tbe envelopes,
"First," she said, "there Ib one
with a crown and Grenadier Guards,
and the Windsor post-mark."
"Ohl" Bald Nelly, "that is irom
Algy, my latest���quite a dearl That
will amuse you."
" Then," proceeded Ethel, " there is
one trom your husband,"
"Dear me!" exclaimed Mrs. Tower,
"something must have gone wrong
already, or he would not write."
" The third has a gold coronet and
a big C underneath it."
"That is irom my cousin Cynthia;
probably about a ball."
"And tho iourth," continued Ethel,
scrutinizing it attentively, "ls ln
rather an Illiterate band, and I cannot make the post-mark out."
"That will keep," returned Mrs.
Tower.    " Begin with Algy." ���
Mrs. Delane obeyed.
"'My dearest mother,'" she commenced, and then said, smiling, " Is
this another of your bopetul adopted
brood ?"
"Yes," laughed Nelly, "boys are
always loud ot that form ol address;
it ls the only one that admits ot such
endearing terms."
Mrs. Delane read the missive
through, and both women laughed
over It. 	
" Dear boy 1" ejaculated Nelly, his
sentiments are excellent, and his
spelling is, as usual, I suppose, awful ?"
" Well, yes," edmltted Mrs. Delane,
" it la rather bad; but, no doubt, be
does everything else much better."
" tee. He is HrBt-rate at sport and
athletics, and a very good soldier, I
am told."
Ethel broke the eeal ol the second
letter, which contained a lew briet
and injured lines Irom Mr. Tower, who
had been unable to Hnd some paper
that he wanted alter hia wile's departure. Then the third was com-
munlcated to Nelly, and caused some
discussion, so that Ior aomo time
the Iourth was forgotten. Presently,
however, Ethel opened It; but, as she
took the enclosure trom the envelope,
ahe Btarted, and a crimson blush
sultused her cheeks. She glanced hastily at the signature���It was her
husbund'B. ,
"Weill" said Nelly, enquiringly,
" and what Ib the other letter aboi�� 7

For a moment Mre. Delane was bI-

"Her Iriend, not being able to see*

back agltiHt her pillows waiting tor

ed, bowllderod, irlghtencd, with a
dreadlul presentiment ot disaster

boudoir, locked borsolt in, and began
to reud eagerly. As she read her tace

though of course she will be dreadlully

but has tor weeks past beea working ln my brain. I am going to leave
what most people consider a life of
ease and luxury, because I can no
longer continue to live it and keep
my sell-respect. I had all along
the gravest and most serious doubts
ot the wisdom ot marrying Ethel,
and It was only because I loved her
so deeply and passionately that Iat
last overcame my scruples and proposed to her. I was a comparatively poor man without) expectations^
and I did not look upon, marriage as
a career. I endeavored to prove by
Insisting on her lortune being settled
upon hereon that my atlectlon was
disinterested. For a stiort time all
went well. We loved each other, and
the glamor ot love concealed sterner
realities Irom our sight. But. alter
a time, It seemed to me that a change
came over Ethel. At lirst she had behaved with great delicacy, referring
to me on ml subjects, and seeming
anxious that I should never be reminded that the money was here.
But gradually she altered her tactics. She began to resume the reins
ot government, to behave ln an imperious manner, to make it evident to
those around her that she was the
sovereign power to be appealed and
referred to���sometimes she would
even countermand orders which I bad
given. I Ielt It impossible to remonstrate with her In words, but I
thought she would have discernment enough to perceive by the
change in my manner that she was
wounding and offending mo. I think
she did observe tt. but instead ol
allowing any wish to conciliate or
���soothe mq. she became more arbitrary, more Imperious���It seemed as It
she took a positive pleasure tn reminding me ol my position. And yet,
although ehe waa doing what
anyone with quick perceptions
or line leellnga would have
known must be galling antl irritating
to me, she resented my coldness, and
herself assumed an Injured air. I cannot suppose she was ignorant ot my
feelings, lor she 1b a thoroughly intelligent, and I used to think, a sympathetic, woman. Wishing to avoid all
possibility ol misunderstanding, I
pointedly refrained Irom giving a
single order, and, It a servant came
to me, I sent him at once to her lor
Instructions. She took this as a matter ol course, and gradually lett oil

(Then and there I made up my mind to
do what I had already ln contemplation���to go to America, and see what
chance I have ol making my way
there. I had not the courage to tell
her of my Intention, lor I knew there
would be a tremendous scene, and I
hate scenes. No doubt her pride will
be lar more hart than her love, tor
Indeed I Hnd It Impossible to believe

her still, though I cannot go on Uv*
Ing with her at the price ot my own
self-respect. II I had more money ol
my own, I should bave been able to
persuade or perhaps laugh her out ol
her Imperious ways, but, under tbe circumstances, I could not risk a retort
that I should bet unable to torsive. It
will be very kind ol you to write and
tell me what happens to the "Post
Oillce, New York." and do not think
harshly ot me. Yon cannot even dimly
conceive what It ls to a man ol a
proud and Independent spirit to have
been humiliated as I have been.
" Yours very sincerely,
" Arthur Delane."
Mrs. Delane sat staring as though
she saw a ghost, and Indeed she did,
the ghost ot dead love and happiness.
And there Is no other spectre, however horrid, that can so chill and terrify the soul. Ohl 11 she bad but
guessed 1 Why, why had he not told
her what was ln his mind ? And all
the time she had been chafing at
what ehe believed to be his indifference, hla want ol interest 1 But now
she knew, all should be put right.
Thank God, It was not too late I the
ship did not sail   until    to-morrow;
Serhaps she would be able to catch
tm belore he lett London; he would
surely be there to-day. She looked
at the clock ; It was ten minutes past
ten; she would Just have time to
catch the eleven train. She rang and
ordered the brougham to be around
in ball an hour. She must go alone;
ehe who had never ln ber Ule been
anywhere by hersell; but she could
not take her mold, not knowing what
was going to happen. And what
should she say to Nelly ? Anything
rather than the truth. Never, never
should she see thut cruel letter which,
by a blessed accident, Bhe had been
prevented Irom reading. How wicked,
now heartless ol bim to humble her
thus belore another woman, even
though she were her bosom Iriend,
She desired her maid to put ln a
bag such things as she might wnnt
11 sbe had to bn absent lor a night,
and then answered her somewhat
sharply when she usked, with unconcealed astonishment, 11 she wero not
to accompany, or at least tollow,
her. t
Then Ethel run buck to Mrs.
'Oh, Nelly, denr," she cried, "1 have
Just had a telegram saying that Auat
Mary ls very 111, and I must run up to
London to see her. I know you will
forgive me, under the circumstances.
Please give your own orders, und bo
sure you go tor a drive this afternoon. I hope to be back to-night;
but, in any case, I shall return tomorrow."
"Oh, dear I" cried Mrs. Tower, "I am
���Borry. What ls the matter witb her ?
Poor, deur Aunt Mary. Of course,
dearest, go I don't think of nie. I
shall get on ull right. But Is It serious?"
"Yes, no���at least, rather���I will
send you a wiro when I have seen ber.
Now I must run. I have not a moment to spare."
She klseed her Iriend, and went
hastily irom the room.
Mrs. Delune's reflections, as she
travelled to London, were ol an agonising nature. Until this moment
that the tear ol losing him was betore her eyes, she had never realised
how she loved him. And that is one
ol the Ingenious cruelties ol Ule. We
may live, day ln and out, with eome
one and not leel conscious ot any
particular ecstasy at his presence or
his company, but present to our minds
the tact that we have lost him lor
a long time, perhaps lorever, and the
agony Is eo intense as to make brain
and heart reel. Ethel Ielt a physical
anguish and terror each time tbe Idea
crossed her mind that ehe wus going,
perhaps, to be parted lorever from
her beloved.
She had not yet learned any of
life's hard lessons���ahe was but Just
beyond the ABC, and had only
mastered words ot one syllable, and
the spelling ol those had been made
easy to her. She had but one Idea;
to prevent her husband Irom leaving her, and as to how she should
accomplish this Bhe did not care. She
wae willing to abase, to Immbta herself ln the dust, to do anything ln
the world rather than lose him. For
she had learned ln the last hour tbat
the thought ot death Itself held no
bitterness like the thought ol living hor lite without hlra, She was
willing to say to herself, to Mm, to
all the world, that It was she who
was in lault, site had sinned, perhaps,
ln Ignorance, but she had sinned*, and
she was prepared to make atonement
ta lull. But the lirst thing was to
Hnd him: 11 ehe did nut succeed ln
seeing him In London, why, thea she
would go alter him to Southampton,
even on board ship II necessary. It
occurred to her that the first thing
to be done was to getl some money-
she had only a couple ot sovereigns
In her parse���then ehe would be ready
lor any emergency. Arrived ln Loudon she got Into a hansom and drove
to her banker's, where she drew a
hundred pounds. The lact ol doing
this reminded her that she might
perhaps hear ot Captain Delane at
Oox's, and thither she drove next.
Captain Delane had been there the
previous day. she was Informed. She
then proceeded to his club and learned that he bad dined there the evening belore, but had not been seen
to-day. It was now going on tor one
o'clock. Ethel, though a prey to the
deepest anxiety, Ielt that she had
plenty ot time betore her, and proceeded next to the hotel where Arthur had been tn the habit ol putting
ap In his bachelor days. No 1 he had
not been seen or heard ol there. She
could not think ol anywhese else to
go ln search ot him���what was to be
done? It was no use driving about
the streets looking tor him, and sbe
determined to go to the Albemarle
Hotel, order some luncheon, and re-
llect on her next move.
As she was pretending to eat, tor,
In her anxiety, the very eight ot lood
was abhorrent to her, Bhe had an Inspiration. Sbe rose, put on ber veil
and gloves, and walked out ol the
hotel back to the club, tinder ordinary circumstances it would have
been a severe ordeal lor her to walk
np the steps where three or tour men
were lounging, but when heart and
mind are absorbed in one vital consideration, minor details become ol
no Importance. Site went up to the
hall porter and nsked It Captain Delane had yet come ln. The man looked surprised, it was hardly ball-an-
hour since she was there belore.
She saw the expression of bis
lace, and spoke calmly,
" I have some news tor Captala
Delane that Is of the most vital Importance lor him to hear. I am at
the Albemarle Hotel. I shall be there
all the afternoon, and it you wlU send
word to me the Instant he comes ln,
I will give you live pounds."
The man assumed a doubtful expression. He did not like
tlte look ot a lady coming
alter a gentleman to his club-
that generally meant a row, and, il
he consented to her proposal, he might
get himself Into trouble. But ��5 was
not without its charm lor him.
"Well. W he said, "I should be
very 'appy to oblige you, but I don't
want to get myseU Into a row. Wouldn't It do 111 was to tell the Captain
that you're waltln' lor him at the
Halbemarle ?"
" No, no," Bhe answered, with something ol her natnral lmperlousness;
" that would not do at all."
He shook his head���he Uked tlte look
ot It less thaa ever.
"I will give you ��10."
The man continued to ponder.
"Ten pounds wouldn't make up to
me tor losing my place," he said.
Ethel trembled with anxiety.
" Oh 1" she said, ln a concentrated
voice, " I Implore you. It may mean
Ule or death 1"
" Well, look 'ere, 'm," he said, end
his tone was slightly familiar because
he had his own Ideas about the situation, " will you promise not to make
a row on the stops hore or call the
gentleman names, but go oft quiet
with him somewhere and huve It
out ?"
Ethel locked ut him in bewilderment.
" Whnt do you mean V" she wid.
Then blushing deeply, she udded
haughtily. "I am Mrs. Dclan;."
" No ottence, 'm," sold tho man, unconvinced. " Very well, then, 11 the
Captain comes in I'll send around and
lot you know at once, nnd p'raps you
wouldn't mind just settln' la a lour*
wheel cab und sendln' the man ln to
mo to say us you was there It 'ud
lank better than Comin' In yourself"
Ethel, who bad never been spoken
to In her life by au Interior ln this
manner, hud a volcanic sensation ln
her breast; but conscious ot her helplessness and the paramount importance ol obtaining the wretch's services, she controlled hersell, and merely said:
" II you enable me to seo Captain
Delano I shall, us I suid, give you
And with these worils she withdrew
and returned to her hotel, Sho did
not resume her unfinished luncheon,
but throwing hersell Into an easy-
chnlr by tho fire, guve the rein to her
thoughts. She hud no personal acquaintance with the seamy side of
life; It hud not beea hers to struggle
through Its thorny paths and clamber
over its obstructing boulders; kind
Fortune had sent berabls betore her
to clour the way. to level uneven
trncts, pick out the stonts and strew
with sand tho sUppery idaces; until
to-day she hatl nover even been anywhere alone. But she was not naturally a helpless woman: her Intellect
and her reasoning powe.'a were good,
and she was by no means deficient ln
win and courage���there was even ln
her some ol tbat leaven which goes to
tbe making of heroines. Just now ahe
wis smarting with wounded love and
pride, but she bud discernment
enough to know that if she allowed
pride to gain a temporary mastery
over love love would revenge hlmselt
by inflicting the most cruel and pro*
longed suli'crlngs upon her. At any
cost she Ielt that ber husband must
not be allowed to leave her, and Bhe
longed madly tor thu moment
when she should be luce to
tace with htm. She would not
permit hersell to believe ln the
possibility ot tailure���only kind heaven I bring him to her side, und she
undertook tbe rest.   ���
Mercifully, she wub given the one
all-Important i factor, time. The
boat did not sail until to-morrow���it
she tailed to see him ln London, she
would go to Southampton. Then
she wondered where the North German Lloyd ollice was, and what time
the ahip started. It It were early,
perhups the passengers might have to
embark over night or sleep at Southampton ; she must Hnd this out; but
as she could not leave the hotel tor
an Instant tor fear ot missing a message Irom the club, she, decided on
engaging a commissionaire to do her
errand. She rang the boll, and, having ascertained tliat there was a
messenger then In the hotel, who
would execute any commissions she
might have, ahe sent tor him at
once and gave her ordera. In ball-
an-hour he returned to say the boat
would aalt at 2 o'clock, and that a
special train to convey the passengers would leave Waterloo at 11.15.
The momenta crept Into hours; the
early darkness set ln; ahe listened
with feverish anxiety to every toot-
tall, but none paused at her door, except when the waiter came to ask
tl he should light the lamps or bring
her tea. Until to-day she had never
known what real sutterlng meant;
the twinges ot heartache that had
visited her on account ol her husbands landed coldness aeemed as nothing compared with this torturing
enspense. If she should not be able
to see him until he was ln the train
or on board the boat (tor It was possible he might go to Southampton
over night���she knew he bad trlendi
there), how could ehe then hope to
prevail npon him, for It would then
be Impossible to say to him ln public all that sbe had now ln her heart
and which ahe would pour out were
they alone together. Suddenly she
remembered her promiae to telegraph
to Mrs. Tower, and then ahe began
to consider how vitally Important tt
was that neither sbe, the servants,
nor anyone else ahould ever suspect
what her errand to London had been.
She rang, asked tor a form, and wrote
out a short meesnge. " Nothing serious. Hope to return to-morrow. Will
wire tn morning'-, end despatched It.

Mr. James Higgart���so the Wellington
Enterprise says���announced himself as a
candidate for the election in the interest
si tht Liberal- Constrvativa, on the 19th
ol December last. At that time it was
stated by Mr. Hashm's friends that he
would not run again. This not being
denied came to be accepted; but the gen
tlemen who can find nothing better lo do
than to tight this section because they
hope to injure a few wealthy individuals
have insisted in bringing out, at the lasl
moment, Mr. Haslam, whose business re
quires his presence at home. A' local
convention, engineered by them has put
him in the field. What can we expect
from their candidate? Personally he
would like to oblige u; but tbe Nanai
mo ring will not let him. We shall be
forever isolated if our emeiries can have
tbeir way. In the board of trade they
ahowed lheir teeth���no extension of the
E. & N. Railway to this district; no ad
ditional mail service, nothing from the
Dominion government for the district,
if the Robbins' ctueric can control, So
far we have got nothing, nothing,
We have nothing to say against Mr. Has
lam. His local friends���our enemies���
aupport him; some of them huve done a
great deal for him and he is true to them
and for their sake is running against his
will. Doubtless he has tried to do what
ke could for us in matters of small irapor
tance; but anything that would really
help this district has not been done because it might be of advantage to a com
petitorof the Vancouver Coal Co. whose
interests are in this district. Can we
hope for any help from this source I
Thc Colonist has this this to say with
reference to the Conservative candidates
in this district:
" It may he said that as Mr. Haslam,
tbe late member for Vancouver Disrict,
is is the field, why deei Mr. Haggart
come out ? When Mr. Haggart came
out Mr. Haslam was not in the field.
Tkat gentleman had declared repeatedly
in the plainest terms tbat he would not
again offer himself for election. When
this became known a requisition was
drawn up and signed by a large number
nf the electors of the district asking Mr.
Haggart 10 allow himself to contest the
constituency at the forthcoming Dominion election: and Mr. Hag_an after due
consideration acceded to the request of
the electors. Mr. Haggart waa therefore in the field before Mr. Haslam, and
it can hardly be expected that his friends
will allow him to withdraw merely because Mr. Haslam has seen fit to change
his mind. Besides, Mr. Haggart's
opinions on the questions at issue in the
contest are, we understand, more in accordance with the views ofthe Conservatives ofthe district than are those of Mr.
Haslam. Having considered all tbe circumstances of the situation, Mr. Haggart's friends after inducing him to offer
himself as a candidate for the suffrages
of the electors of the district are bound
to back him up and to stand by him to
the end. We must say that we strongly
approve of their resolution and trust that
Ihey will be successful in securing Mr.
Haggart's return. Mr. Haggart is a reliable man and will make a good representative.

To tho Electors of Tanconver
Island Electoral District:
Having received the nenination at a
convention held at Nanaimo, on May
15th, for the purpose of selecting a Candidate to contest the election in the in
terest of the Liberal-Conservative party,
I again have the honor to announce my
self as a Candidate fer your suffrages.
In taking this step I do so witk a fell
knowledge of the greal responsibility I
assume in trying to represent the varied
and very important interests for which
Ihis district is so justly noted.
A residence of over twenty twe years in
British Columbia gives me a knowledge
of the wants and conditions of the dis-
trict that ought to be of value ia ihe discharge af tke duties devolving on me as
year representative'
The principle of protection as advecat
ed and practiced by the Liberal* Conservative party, is, I believe, tke policy best
adapted to the Dominion of Canada; be
lieving this I would strongly support ike
Government in any effort having for its
object the preserving of the markets ef
Canada for Canadians, I wonld also support every means of giving Canadians the
advantage of placing their products iatht
markets of the world.
In my opinion it is the duty ef all Canadians to zealously assist every feasible
scheme that would tend to bring about
closer relations with Great Britain and
all the colonies. I believe a Federated
Empire will be one day aa accomplished
fact, and will earnestly help any geod
project having that end in view.
On ihe Manitoba School Question I
have given the Government ay support,
as I tee se other way ef enabling Can
adians te redeem the pledges made by
them to the people ef Manitoba, which
pledges were embodied in the Terras ef
Union when that Previice entered inte
Conlederatien. The pledges aaade by
Sir Donald Saith, at thc representative
cf Canada should in my opiiien baas sacredly kept as the pledges ef aay private
individual. The honor, honesty, iateg<
lily and Christian charily of Canadians
are at stake in this mailer, and I for mc
would do all I could to prevent any
breach of contract.
I regret very much that this queatian
waa broaght in to ihe political areaa, at
it is entirely a constitutional one, but tke
Conservative party is blameless in that;
they had nothing tn do with lhe action
tkat hroagat it into such praainence before the people ef Canada, and caused 10
much agitation in the conntry.
I will embrace the earliest eppertuaity
ef seeing all the Electors and expressing
my views on the public and local questions ef political importance te thia Dis

Alter the selection of aoetl potatoes,
the main point is to keep them at as
low a temperature as possible without
danger Jrom fru.st. This is liest attained by keeping tbem in out of door

northern climate, after the covering of
the pit has frozen over, it is not apt
to thaw out again all winter.
Birds either prey upon animals, con-
Bume the seeds of noxious weeds or
devour pestiferous Insects. Any great
reduction in the number of these useful
creatures Is Biire to produce Injury to

at least study the habits of birds, that
he may know wliich of thom to protect.
The enormous Increase lu the number of field mice in certain parts of
Europe has been owing to the shooting of their natural enemies, the owls
and tho hawks, by game koeperH. The

The days for doing as one's father
did before him is past. The farmer of
each succeeding generation has need to
be a better farmer than were those
who preceded him. We must be
guided by business principles, and not
by custom. Oue should itave no hide-
boutfd principles In either business or
When seed Is planted and a crop is
raised it seems that something is coming from nothing, for from a few
pounds are produced tons; but for thc
formation of every substance there
must be supplied an amount of matter
equal In weight to the substance
formed. The growing crop gathers all
its bulk from the air and soil. It eats
and fattens like the growing boy.
Forty years ago 12 per cent, of our
people were Ln the cities and towns;
now over 40 per cent, are there, and
the proportion is constantly increasing. Certainly, this meana a larger opportunity for those who till the farms.
The more the town dwellers the more
are the consumers of tlie products of
���the soil.
It seems Impossible for the clumsy
���cutworm to crawl up a little hill. It
has been reported as a successful way
to outwit them to cultivate the coru
about the time Ib comes through the
ground, leaving a row of corn on a
little ridge. We are not sure but
that it would take as much work to
do this as to replant a little corn.
Valleys, ravines, steep declivities or
rocky and broken surfaces might olten be given over to a growth' or
trees, and serve an aesthetic as well
as an economic purpose. If land
has been reduced to bareness, or the
soil badly washed, the fertility is
best and most easily restored by a
covering of trees, which restore a
vegetable soil,
tUpon the farm the cost of division
fences is often as grent as that oi the
buildings, and the annual cost of repairs iB greater ; moreover, their llie
Is not half so long. All this is an
argument for movable fences, tliat we
may shift them at will, and often divide our fields ns we wish, which we
can not do with those which are permanent.
If your surroundings aro not all
thoy should be upon the farm, do
your lH;st to improve them. It you
are not quite as forehanded ns you
would like to Ire, try to make your
neighbors think so by keeping everything trim nnd shipshape. This effort, If rightly directed, will do much
to  make  you  so.
Cattle may Ito kept on Just enough
to sustain Ule, but there can boi_.no
expectation of profit. The valuable
elements of food go to repair wuate
animal tissues, and there is none fert
to make gain "but the more an animal
can be made to take beyond this
and assimflato the excess goes to mako
flesh, wool, milk, etc., wherein lies
the profit.
If short of food, and inclined to give
less liberal rations, just do not. If
you yet havo rough feed, It will pay
to buy grain to feed with it. The
next wisest step is to sell off part
of the stock at some price, for it will
not pay to feed at ajl unless you feed
enough to enable your stock to make
some gain or produce something of
In this land of abundant nnd cheap
food wo have only to ralso good
high grades of stock and feed them
the products of our fields to obtain
a double profit. The English breeder
must look closer to details, must buy
much of his feed, and consider its
manurlal value; but we lose all our
labor and our profit if we feed poor
stock. Millions nre doing that, however.
If a man Is going to raise hogs he

paragraph of the police regulation ol

reads: "Smoking In the streets or
promenades of this town ls positively
prohibited, violators ot this law being
punished by a fine, or eventually by
a number ot lashes with a switch
equivalent to the number of marks
the tine amounts to." Upon the
strength ot this law, some reactionary Iriends ot the blue-law have recently hauled a number of respectable
citizens before the courts. The Magistrate, having no choice, had to fine
every one of the accused parties, because they all freely admitted of having smoked ln the streets.

Boylike he was anxious to get out
and enjoy the beautilul spring sunshine and Ior several days was carried out and taken lor a drive. This
brought on the relapse. The doctor
was again called lu and as he continued to grow worse he was ordered once more to bed. Things then
looked very dark as despite the medical care he did not get any better.
At last his lather decided to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. Soon alter beginning their use Freddie began to
feel better. His appetite began to
return and the pains were less severe. As he continued the use ol the
Pink Pills he regained health and
strength rapidly, and ln abont a

ever, the only remaining symptom ot
his trying Illness being a slight pain
ln the leg, which did not disappear
for several months. It ls over one and

his last pill, aud in that time he has
not had a recurrence ol the attack.
There ls no doubt that Dr. Williams'
Pink I'ills cured him, and both the

nearly as could be made out, he had

a slot aud get some conlectton that
lio wanted, and he had evidently made
uji ins mind to go back' and got tt,

apparently have made his way on

hnvo his own way. After ha had
virtually torn hlinselt loose Irom his
mother two or three times, the latter made up her mind that desperate
measures would be necessary. Accordingly she set her teeth firmly together, prepared to spank tne youngster aud then proceeded to do so vigorously, using the palm ot her hand.
The boy struggled and screamed, and
It was all the mother could do to

Clapes Here.
Jackets are certainly more fashionable than capes this spring, bat still
the latter will be admitted; only remember they must be composed ot
one single cape, very much sloped over
the shoulders, and torming godet
pleats all round.
Short, full capes, very much
trimmed and llneifc with satin brocade, taffeta glace or white satin
will be worn. The completions feature of these small wraps ls the Immense neck ruche, usually ln black
go nie or chiffon.
Black, white and black and golden
tan are the chief colors for ench garments.
Tan satln-faccil cloth was selected
for making the Jaunty cape portrayed
ln cut No. 8. The rolling collar was
of brown velvet and the cape wae
profusely decorated with brown
braid, which was also nsed as a covering for the tiny buttons that decorate the double-breasted front. The
circular shaping of the cape produces
rippling folds at the sides and at the
back, and ln front It falls smoothly.
It has a bias centre back seam and
may be, If desired, completed at the
back by a storm collar, for which the
pattern provides. This storm collar
was In the present Instance omitted
and the neck cut ln V-shape at the
front, completed by the combined rolling collar and lapel, which Is Joined
by a seam tu the neck, edged and
shaped by a seam at the centre of
back. This lapel collar Is shaped
prettily, and Is the most unique and
attractive feature of a very handsome cape of original design. The
front sections of the cape overlap
each other In double-breasted style,
and the lower edge of the garment
reaches only to the waist line, which
Is a becoming and popular length.
Healthy Marriages.
Healthy marriages mean healthy
homes, hnd this ln turn begets a
healthy state. True marriage ls the
healthy union of one man and one
woman who are ln suitable conditions
of health, age, temperament, conviction and taste to enable them to live
together ln peace and happlness.to assist each other In fulfilling the general ends of life, ln the development of
personal character and the perlorm-
ance of all duties that come to them
as parents of healthy offsprings. Marriages mean'this, no more, no less.
An Ideal less than this ls false and
fatal. Haphazard marriages mean unhappy homes. The history ot sucli ls
written ln the character and lives of
the children who are born under such
unfavorable circumstances. The average man knows but Uttle of the bitter fruit of hasty and spurious marriages. False notions of family life
constitute a general Pandora's box of
social and domestic evil.���Iter. Dr.

Housecleanlng time ls here���the
time that tries men's souls, not to

The domestic woman, and her name
ls legion, ln spite of the jokes to the
contrary, has her mind Intent on ways
and means, and has already looked
over her array ot palls and brooms,
and has laid in a good supply of soap
and brushes and camphor.
She scents the battle from afar, and
yearns for the fray 1
And If she be a "new woman," she
goes about It ln a business-like way
tbat ls refreshing. She maps out her
campaign as carefully as does a military tactician. Silently she goes from
room to room, dismantling and removing heavy draperies and all stuffy
accessories not to be endured In summer time.
And, then, one morning at breakfast
the master ot the house hears strange
subterranean noises, a*Sd he ls told by ,
his helpmeet that the cellar ls being
cleaned, and when he steps out a Uttle
later he sees a formidable Une of carts
at the door and of whitewash pails
and brushes.
That done, the top of the house ls
next attacked, and the lord of the
manse knows nothing further tlU one
night he comes home and finds the sitting-room transformed.
All the heavy upholstered furniture
has been carefully cleaned and stored
ln an upper unused room, and ln Its
place light rattan chairs and tables
are substituted, and for the master's
very own there ls a large Indian
lounging chair, piled high with Madras-covered cushions, placed Just
where the lamplight falls softly on It,
and within reach of the low tabour*
ette, whereon lies his cigars, newspapers and unfinished novel.
And his wife calmly announces that
housecleanlng Is done. And this, too,
without his knowledge or any slightest discomfort. He has not been asked
to adjust a stovepipe, nor has he ever
slipped on a piece of soap on the stairs
nor casually stepped Into a pall of
water ln the hall 1
And so, true to his masculine Instincts, he feels aggrieved, lie has
been deprived of one of the sovereign
rights of man���the Inalienable right
of growling, but he contents himself
with remarking that he hopes the
coffee will be fit to drink again now
that all this cleaning nonsense ls
over, and he settles down ln his
chair and wonders whnt the new

One day I sat ln a car seat on the
Saugus Branch ol the Eastern Rood,
behind a pale, careworn lady, who
was talking to a little boy. As the
little boy was of a very Inquiring
mind, and everything seemed to attract his attention, I could not help
listening   to some ot the questions.
" What is that, auntie ?" the Uttle
boy commenced, pointing to a huge
stack of hay tar out on the level
" Oh, that's hay, dear," answered
the careworn lady.
"What Is hay, Auntie?"
" Why hay ls hay, dear."
" But what Is It made of ?"
" Why, hay is mado ot dirt and
water and air.'"
i"Who makes It?"'
" God makes it, dear.'*
* Does He make It lu the daytime
or in the night?'*
" In both, dear."'
" And Sundays ?"���
"Yes, all the time."'
" Ain't It wicked to make hay on

A gentleman who haB been studying
birds, and more especially wrens, has
discovered that wrens enjoy nest-
building. They will sometimes partly
build a nest, and for some reason It ls
not finished, and they start In to
build another. The nest of the wrens
ls a covered nest, and not at all
simple In construction, yet a pair of
wrens will sometimes build as many
as Bix nests before Mrs. Wren accepts
one as a fit home for her beautllul
children. Tbe full number of eggs for
the wren Is six, though sometimes the
nests have but five. This building of
many nests for one family keeps the
wrens very busy.
