Are raising untile on a farm.  ���

As old birds we'll go buck to the

Oh. the happy, peaceful home,
How long will it hang together;
For father und mother arc growing old

While home still hangs together;

Slit,-The Ret.tl_.ru from Golden to
McKay's, along the Colunihin, nre
taxed at the rate of $5 per itcre. while
those further south at $2.50 per acr?.
Yet our worthy collector after heiim
appealed to tells the settlers that he
cannot reduce tho tax. yet with few
exceptions the settler would sell out at
that figure. Why is this <*o? After
appealing to our mem Iier, also to the
assessor, what next is left for the
settler but to refuse to pay such overcharges. It would seem there is no
court of revision for this district, if
there is [ for one would like some of
your readers to inform me through the

'���I wouldn't marry hor, If I wore
ynu 1"
That was the gist of his friend's conn-
to], spoken or implied. They all nil*
initted her grnces of person, heart and
mind. But the undeniable fact of her
jealousy remained.
"A jealous woman," his aunt naanred
liiin, "can make any man miserable."
"A jenlons wife," declared his near-
���"t frietul. will make yon wish yon hud
taken my advice, which is that the 1m-
ir oruil Weller gave to his son. 'Don't
marry a vldder,1 he said. Go hang
yourself first, au' yon'll be glad on it
urterwardl' I am presumptuous
eiuingh to parnphniNe that: Iio hung
yourself before yon many a jealous
woman, and you'll be glad on it afterward !'"
But Harold Groves had only laughed.
W hen was a man or a womnn iu love
ever apt to listen to anything so disagreeable as common sense? And he wns
iu love, honestly, sincerely and passionately. So hc married Norino llnle. nnd
was most ridiculously happy for two
years. Their life altogether was simply
ideal. His few faults he corrected. If
faults she had, they remained undiscovered by him. One day he summoned
courage to tell her the remarks that hail
been mode concerning her jealous disposition.
She looked np at him with grave,
shining eyes.
"I do love loyalty," ihe replied, simply.
And it may be he wonld never have
riscovereil at all that Norine was jealous if it were not for the burglary.
Harold Groves was a lii'.vyer. He
transacted much of his Im-iuess at
lionie, uud luul in his study 11 large desk,
in which he kept papers of importance,
deeds ami memoranda relating to tlie
all airs of bis clients. The desk looked
sully untidy, and, in the opinion of
Norine, wns a decided blot in the exquisitely neat little room, where somo
of Uieir picir.-iinlest hours were spent.
"Harold," she snid to bim one even-
intr, as she leaned over his chair, and
smoothed back his dark locks caressingly with her pretty white fingers, "I
really shall tidy np that desk one of
these days. The litter of dusty papers,
books aud pipes is positively disgraceful."
He gave her a glance of alarm.
"Don't���for mercy's sake, dearest! I
"trow now where to put my hand on
everything I want���don't!"
Bnt the fear that she might do so in*
���ltieeil him lo lock bis desk, and keep it
locked thereafter. Norine noticed it
nnd luu'.-heil.
"At lenst yon hnve shnt tbe disorder
ont of sight," she avowed gnyly. "My
threat was efficacious to that extent.
Indeed, dtar, how vou can ever tell one
nf those tirerome iioiiiiiienls nf yours
from another is it mystery to me."
A certain blue, starlit .March nicht
they went upstairs. leaving tlie cozy
apartment in dainty order. During the
night Norino was awakened by what
so Muled like a click. She sat bolt up-
riL'lit in bed.
"Hark!" she breathed. "Listen,
Both listened intently.
"It is a very cold night," he snid, at
length. "Yon merely he> rd the frost
cracking on the window pane. Go to
sleep, love."
Reassured, she did as bidden, bat, on
being aroused early by the servant's cry
nf dismay, she hastened down to find
the lower rooms in a state of extreme
confusion. Drawers hnd been pulled
out, the desk nf the master forced open,
inul papers were scattered liroiuicust in
an evident search for valuables.
"My ruby ring I" cried Mrs. Groves.
" I left it on the mantel last night. And
my watch wns in the Chinese cabinet���
where I put my pocketbook. Send for
the police, Harold I They have all been
stolen 1"
" I shall go," cried Groves.
And he started off on a run
Tr several moments Norino stood
rtiiiinir around in bewilderment. Then.
mi cliaiiionlly, she begun to arrange the
trisurdered apartment, She picked np
the pioecs of a shattered vase, threw
tbem in the grate, straightened a twisted ������ropery, lifted some se .tiered sheets
of paper, laid tbem on the leaf of her
husband's forced desk, and suddenly
retreated a step, turning very white.
Open I efore l.er, having evidently been
i.Ti'iiched wide, iu the hope of finding
money, was a square morocco box. In
the box was a bundle of letters and a
photograph. The letters were in a
wo nun's hand, and theBiniling pictured
face was that of Norine's dearest friend.

It was jnst .-iich a love letter as any

written. It begun "My Denre-it," an 1
ended "Your loving Annie." It bore
Ibe date of the year previous to Norine'*
marriage.   Sho too.* up another folded
sheet, opened, glanced through it, A
brief, sun little note it was.

I Hark ! There were footsteps���voices !
The young wife hastily replaced the
letters, drew back from the desk. The
ne.irt instant Harold, accompanied by
policemen and detectives, was in the
room.   He went directly to Norine.
"My love," be said, "what it shock
this bus given you 1 You are white as
a ghost."
I    She thrust his gentle hand away.
"I am very well," she said.
And nil tbe time she wns going over
and over iu her mind the details of her
husband's  acquaintance   witli   Annie

I Toward evening she left tlie house,

for n certain powder, ut once caressing
and deadly.

fancied, as he gave her the package and
her change.

It seemed a long time before the drug
took effect, bnt at last she felt the desired sense of unconsciousness'creeping
npon her.
It was almost eleven o'clock when
Harold, wbo hnd been on a wild goose
chaBe after the burglars, reached his
own door. A voice oat of the shadows
spoke to him.
"Mr. Groves, I've been waiting for
you.   I'm Jim Dinand."
"Oh. yes���of course. Wait, and I'll
get this dm ir open."
"No���I only wish to speak to you a

I've done  you  one  now.   Your  wife

I     "My    God!"     murmured    Groves.

He let himself in, went quietly upstairs, noiselessly entered the room.

Russia possesses 030,000 nobles, without counting -1.10,000 whose titles an i
hereditary. Among the Russian nobility there ure many of foreign origin.
Tbe Russian social cole recognizes four
categories or estates (Soslovi.i). that is to
suy, nobles, priestB, town dwellers nnd
peasants. Tlie character of their employment distinguishes these classes
from one another. Each is dependent
on the Czar for all its privileges; nud
the Emperor has absolute power to
change tlie condition of his subjects
from n high to a low estate. None of
these classes possesses either a historical,
apolitical or a social individuality. The
Russian aristocracy is deprived of political importance, and it ciiiniot boast of
such cliivuhoiis qualities as distinguished the French nobles. For the present,
it lacks sufficient good uense or education to play any part iu public life.
Russian aristocrats all desire to be considered as direct descendants of the
Buyers, merely because it is pleasant to
be such, and thus get a position of so
cial superiority. Their ambition goes
no higher. Tlie Boyurs, like the feudal
Western landowners, are tho descendants of tlie men who of old composed the Russian Prince's army. The
members of the Russian aristocracy
have in great part retained their places
at court, bo thut there can be encountered must of the old historic names.
Children of both sexes inherit the titloi
of their pareuts.
The Russian aristocracy is distinguished by overweening pride and haughtiness, and at tbe same time there is often
united tu this, in a bizarre contrast, a
certain snobbi linens. Access to the
circles if high society is very difficult!
it is only possible topenetrn:.i into them
if well born and well connected. The
Russians rarely abandon their titles,
being too proud of them to quit them
easily. A marriage between a poor
gentleman mid u rich stranger, or vice
versa, is considered in this country as a
ihiiiueful mesalliance, aud the couple
would  i.ot  bu  ucelvod iu the arisio-
Makli.ir **imi.'y.
Where are we to look for new outlets? Inventors and discoverers are tho
saviors of society. The photographic
art is modern enouirh to lie a useful case
iu point. Photographers increased 41
per cent, from 1871 to 1*581, and 5U per
cent, in the following decade. New industries give rise to new wastes; and it
waB not ioug beforo it was discovered
that tiie precious metal used iu the
developing lulnt'ous could be recovered,
or that the yolk of eggs, whose wliiio
was employed in providing albuminized
paper, need not be thrown away us
valueless, but would realize handsome
prices from pastry cooks. The history
of waste products, indeed, is extremely
instructive, und very pertinent to ting
article. In some cases by products havo .
become tbe main products. Gas-tar���

yields numberless products, ns any
science primer shows. From even moro

j Lord Play fair once said: "Many a fair

mill-* Hears without knowing that its
esi-entiul ingredient is derived from the
drainage of a cow-house." To the
French belongs the gTeatest credit in
i discovering new means of. making
motley. The Parisian ebb-funnier is
��� much Rharper than his London brother,
i who does n queer trade iu cigar ends nnd
old'hilts, boots, etc.. which ure "fukud"
