A BOYCOTTED BABY-
CHAP. L���THE MAlllll.lllK.
Twenty-five years ago Matthew Bulbous
had forsaken the plough in his native parish
and come up lo London to .nuke his fortune.
His education consisted of a good knowledge of the ''able of land, and of little more
but the deficiency was supplied by a hard
head and a determination lo make all the
money he could at the expense of others;
for he had no capital to start with beyond
a couple of hundreds which he borrowed to
open an ollice and advertise
He made his fortune.   When he commenced business as an 'estateagent, auctioneer,
and valuer,'money was being made in the
nation at a rate almost unprecedented, and
the    'new    men'   wanted   country  estates    to    give    them    position    and
social consequence.   Hence there was great
buying on the side of the rich, and selling
on the side of the embarrassed ; and there
was correspondingly great business on the
part of the agents.   To avail himself of this
tide sf business prosperity Matthew Bulbous:
worked hard, and his energy and deteriniii- j
ation had their reward.   Then came a turn
in the tide, when business grew depressed, j
and rents could no longer he paid as of old, ]
and estates, old and new, came crashing I
into the market.   Matthew Bulbous found j
this state of ruin as profitable us the lormer l
spell of prosperity.   Estates had to be sold,
instead of bought; and before they left his
hands, Matthew Bulbous wrung from them I
the last guinea he could extract for surveys, I
valuations, reports, expenses, and commissions ; and many u hapless seller turned ���
pale  when  Bulbous and  Bore's account
was presented to him, with  the amount!
already deducted from the "deposit" which 1
it is customary for the agent to receive ]
from the purchaser,   As for the partner,'
Bore, Matthew Bulbous had devoured him
years ago.
Matthew was a rich man now, and ���in I
his spare hours���a man of great local stand-;
ing at Blaokheath���churchwarden, ohairman of meetings, a tower of eminence in lhe
locality.   He kept a line house, had a wife i
and (laughter, and a son who resided in I
chambers in London and was reading for tlie i
bar.   This son was his great hope, and in'
him all his ambition was centred,    lie hail
been foolish enough once to take a house in
town for tho "season," with the desire of
making a position in society.   In such a
case a man is made or marred by his wife. I
Matthew Bulbous did not spare money in
this matter.   But Mrs. Bulbous failed, 'she!
was not worthy of him.   She was shy and
timid, incapable of rising to tho position I
provided for her.    Her daughter was form*,
edofthc same abject  material.    Mr. Hub
bons thenceforth despised them both, and
centred all his hopes in his sou.    Matthew,
Bulbous had a great deal to do with gentle,
men in the way of business, and was a good
judge nt one.   Being uneducated himself, he
strenuously he'd that a gentleman wa* not
made by education but by " blood."  When
his sou .lames left the University, Matthew '
perceived that he was undoubtedly a gentleman as well as a scholar, and the fact furnished him with  food for a good deal of
thought,
"III have failed myself," was his frequent reflection. " through his mother's incapacity, Jem shall make up for it. I will
take care that he marries blood!" Which
meant that the son should not be matrimonially handicapped, as the father had
been.
Fortune���which in the case of such men
as Matthew Bulbous, means the quick  and
resolute seizure of opportunities���fa\ nred
his aspiiations.   Whilst   the   young  mm
was reading law, his father, allunknowi
him, was arranging for him a   inatrimiiiu.il
alliance with the daughter and only
of an Karl.   To be sure, from another point
of view, the match  might not be  thought
brilliant: but an Karl's la ighte
be had every day.   Lord   Polonins  ��
man of shady reputation, who found
Belfol liged te bring his burdened patri
into the mark,'..    I'h" estate was mortgag,
ed  for  more  than  it   wis  now   i
and little likelj to  attract   t  pun ;. i e
After lying on his hands (or Borne time,  in
ideagleame I ipon Matthew Bulbous of buying tin- eat te       ��� II  ind [jiving it',, his
son.   Jem wis i gentleman  ind would fil
the position.   The position,;',", v m .
him an added .;  intagc    \,,-.v. in his iwn
line.quite anmspe, ted by M itthewBulbous,
Karl Polonius was ',1111,'  , mat' 1, foi I ,
sharp man of business,   He penetrated the
man's ambition, and astutely turned it to
his own advantage.   To the last day o( his
life Matthew Bulbous will never he able 10
recollect clearly what, it was that first, suggested to him llie idea of starting his son in
life as the husband of Lady Jessulindn   -���. '
(ieorge, or how ii was that he and Lord 1
Polonius Iirsl understood each other's views'
on the subject.   It uns probably due to the '
superiority    of   the   Karl's  genius;   bul
this does not   matter,   Matthew   Bulbous
bought ahe estate of Kirby  St. t,t:,rn.,
and was obliged, under the special circumstances,   to  give  Lord   Polonius  ten
thousand pounds over and above the amount
of thc mortgages.  This transaction ratified
the agreement between them that, subject
to the concurranco  of the parties,  Lady
Jessalinda and Mr. dames Bulbous should
be married���the latter assuming, by ibe

"I'm going���ahem���to dine with Karl
Polonius, and his daughter, Lady Jessalinda
St. (Ieorge, this evening," he observed to
his wife and daughter with a bad assumption
of nonchalance.
-Mrs. Bulbous, a gentle and very sweet-
faced lady, and her daughter started with
a faint "Oh ! " and looked at the master in
.somo anxious doubt as to what was expected of 1 beni in the way of reply.
"I just mentioned it," he said carelessly,
"because I shall ask them to dinner here
one day next week, and I expect you to be
prepared.''
"Shall there be any others, .Matt!" the
wife timidly asked.
" No, except. Jem. It will be quite a private family affair.   Vou needn't be nervous
aboul it, because. But that's enough for
the present."
He left the room, but soon came back,
which showed that the great matter was
more in his mind than he desired them to
suppose.
"Of course," he remarked, "you are not
so familiar with the higher ranks as 1 am���
meeting them every day in business, and
all lhat so���that you must not be fussy or
nervous. Put on some dignity, and be at
your ease, as if you were used to it. I'll
bring home a book for you both to study up.
I won't have them think," he added firmly,
"that we are overwhelmed with the honour.
I'll���I'll have my eye upon both of you, remember. Lord Polonius anil Lady Jessalinda arc getting the best of the bargain,
as you shall see in good time. That's all,"
he said, turning to go away. " Except this,
Mary: you are not to call me ' Matt' when
they are here���it isn't the thing. ' Call me
'Mr. Bulbous,' or���or," he added, somewhat doubtfully, "or'Mr. Bulbous, my
love,' if you like; and 1 will do the same.
Of course Agues will not speak unless she
is spoken to."
Leaving the two ladies a little pink in tho
face, he went away to his business. It was
mysterious to them, but ;iiey had to await
his pleasure to explain what it meant. Bulbous was cross and impatient when he came '
home in tho evening to dress, because he |
was conscious of being nervous and of betraying it. He had never before been an
invited guest ut a lord's house. He was to
be the only guest, too, which to begin with,
was not giving him what ho considered a
fair start. Matthew Bulbous was thinking
less of Lord Polonius and Lady Jessalinda
than of the terrible, silent, observant menials.
When he returned at half-past eleven, it
was plain to be seen that the dinner had gone
oil' well; perhaps Matthew Bulbous had discovered hitherto unknown powers of rising
to the occasion. He had dropped into a
club on his way home, and casually mentioned to several men he knew that he had
been dining with Karl Polonius and Lady
Jessalinda; he had even hinted at more. He ,
was therefore in good humor when he got!
home. I
"Mary," he said to his wife, as he flung!
himself in an easy-chair and stretched out I
his legs, "did you ever know me to fail in '
anything that I undertook?''
"No, Matt," was the gentle reply.
"1 never yet," he continued reflectively, j
"got my eye on a properly that was doom-1

succeeded."
"I am sure you have, Matt, whatever it
is." 1
" But you don t dream what it is. What's
the good of being rich if you can't  stand
high ? If it hadn't been for Well, there ;!
I won't talk about it now," he said gener-
ously, noticing the look of pain in his wife's
tic. "That was a failure! hut if you are
not capable yourself of succeeding, why
shouldn't your children rise. Isn't Agnes

���good gracious, minima 1" Agnes looked
pale.
Leaving the lades immersed in the interesting discover,' that Lady Jessalinda
had reached the nature age of thirty-live,
let us follow Mr. lulbous to London.
When a man rses to a higher sphere, he
owes to it the duly of lopping oil'all connections which arc net calculated to adorn that
elevated plane. One such Mathew Bulbous
had in his mind tiis morning to be rid of
at once. This win a brother, who in several ways had been iseful to him in his business for a numberof years ; but who, on his
usefulness ceasingwith the fuller growth of
the house, had talcn to dissipation on an
allowance made ti him for that purpose.
Joseph Bulbous poved of tough vitality ;
but .Matthew would not now have him about
London any longc.
.Matthew foundthis brother in a lodging
in Chelsea, sitting over a lire after a late
breakfast.
' I don't, tliink his life is doing well with
you, Joe," he said sitting down and looking curiously at tic dissipated face of his
brother. " You isked me, once, to send
you to Canada, I'erhaps I ought to havo
done sol hardly kiow."
The colour rosi for an instant to the
other's forehead, md faded again. "If you
had sent me thin," he replied, without
looking up, "it night have been different.
I don't think it nutters now. 1 am hardly
lit to make a new start; though, if it comes
to that," he added bitterly, " I have never
made one."
" No, you novel have. It wasn't in you,
Joe,"
" Wasn't in nie?" answered Joe, with a
Hash. "Havel iver had the chance? If
you had left me at htmic on the farm, I
might have done well enough, liut you
wanted me foryou-own purposes; and after
making use of me ill those years, and allowing nie no chance ��f doing anything for myself, you say���it wasn't in me ! No one
knows better than you, Matt, whether I've
ever had a clunici or not. It didn't suit
your interests to let nie find one ; and like
a fool, I did your work, until you used up
the best part of mj life."
" Well, I am gong to givo you a chance
now," replied Miuhew, not in the least
moved. "Yon are of no use to yourself or
anybody else in England. I will send you
to one of the colonies."
"Itis not from my interest in me that
you propose doing si," said the other, who
knew his brother we.l. " Suppose I refuse
to go?"
" Then you may starve. I daresay they
would pitch you oul of here in a week," observed Matthew quietly. He knew his
power over the broken-down ma)), and so
did the latter.
Joseph Bulbous turned pale, and gave
his brother a look which indicated more
hate than fear. Ue made one or two efforts
to speak, but evidently the quiet masterful
presence of his brother was terrible to him.
Then he turned quickly to a cupboard
where there was brandy, and with shaking
hand swallowed a draught of the liquor.
Matthew smiled under his heavy moustache ; he saw how beaten the poor creature
was.
" If 1 swallowed half of that stulTin the
morning, Joe,"he observed good-humoured-
ly, " I should be lit for nothing all day.
Joe, what an inside you must have 1"
"Never mind," said Joe, grown calmer.
"I don't mind saying I am quite ready to
go. But why ? At any rate, 1 have never
betrayed your confidence,"
There was no particular reason why Matthew Bulbous should make known to his
brother the great family matter. But it
gratilied him to unbend a little, contrasting
his own splendid success with the broken
brother's abject failure.
" I am giving Kirby St. (Ieorge to Jem..
He is going to marry Lady Jessalinda Si.
George, and to assume the family name and
arms. 1 am going into Parliament myself,
and Jem will he iu lhe first time there's a
vacancy in his county. What will they
think ot all that, now, down in Bullworth?"
Bullworth was their native place. Matthew- smiled widely as he spoke. Joseph
ran his fingers through his thin unbriisheil
hair and for a minute looked dazed. He
saw now why Matthew wanted to be rid of
him. He was an undesirable connection.
Yet he was natmally a cleverer man than
his brother, and felt very bitterly that he
had helped largely���in ways Matthew could
not follow���to make that fortune, of which
this was his share.
N���w, iu Joseph Bulbous realised the position, a gleam of quick  intelligence  shut,
from his rheumy  eyes.    Whilst Matthew

Wttlked to the "ml of the room and back
again, and then asked, in an ominously cul
looted voice:    "Where dues she live?"
"They have a small  houso    No;  I
no  you ianey mat i woiim attempt ner
life?"
Whatever he thought, he gave no direct
reply to this; but after thinking a minute,
observ d with a grin: "I think you had
better, Mat l, for your own sake, not seek
to see Mrs. Jem. She's a terror."
"A���what?"
"A terror, Matt," was the grave reply,
"especially when sho is under certain influences, She'd tear you. Poor Jem ; it is
always thc best sort of fellows they catch ;
but she was (and is still) good-looking���
there's no denying that. No, no ; take my
advice, and give Mrs. Jem a wide berth."
Matthew Bulbous asked no more information, ioseph stood at the window watching the cab with a smile of malicious satisfaction as his brother drove away. " Thai's
one for you, Malt," he remarked. "I hope
it will do you good."
The revelation of his son being married,
which he did not for a moment doubt, was
a tremendous blow to Matthew Bulbous.
Such defiance of his authority he had never
thought of as possible. He was not a man
to look for gratitude: but in return
for all ho had done for his son, he did
claim unquestioning submission to his will
aud pleasure in all things. It was his undoubted right, he argued ; and consequent.
ly he had looked for his son's acquiescence
in the marriage Boheme as a matter of
course.
" Where should he be now,"said Matthew
to himself, "if it wasn't forme? Why at
the tail of a Bullworth plough !"
And to think of a young man who by
rights ought to be ploughing the fields, defying his father by marrying a music-hall
actress, and thereby frustrating his father's
design of making him a country gentleman
and the husband of an Karl's daughter���it
was too much to bear thinking of.
Yet when he reached his son's chambers
hci ooked cool and quiet. There was not ,t
sign of disturbance in his large steady eyes.
Jem was u handsome young man, very like
his mother and sister, and roso quickly
when his father entered the room. The
latter, however, did not sit down or lemove
his hat.
"I have just heard something that has
surprised mo," he said very quietly. "Is it
a fact that you are married?"
James Bulbous started, changed colour,
and dropped his eyes for a moment. Then
lie looked frankly in his father's face. "I
ought to have told you father. I am
ashamed both before Gertrude and you not
to have done so.   Yes, sir; I am married."
Matthew examined the pattern of tho
carpet, for a few seconds. "Have your
mother and sister heen aware of this ?"
"No, sir."
"Very well. You have taken your
course. Vou havo no further claim upon
me."
That was all. The young man reddened
and inclined his head. Matthew Bulbous
walked from the room, pausing to inspect
au engraving on the wall, and drove away
to his ollice,
It was over, as far as tho son was concerned. But the blow struck Matthew Bulbous
harder in another quarter. Lord Polonius
would have to he informed of the downfall,
of the marriage project. His lordship would
doubtless be disappointed ; but M itthew
realized with bitterness of heart tho polite
equanimity with which Polonius would beat
it. He had ten thousand pounds of Matthew's money to console him, and the ten
thousand maledictions now accompanying
the money would disturb his lordship very
little. This was the keenest agony of it;
the wily old Earl had beaten him.
,1cm was married. The curses, deep and
silent, breathed by Matthew Bulbous ou
their wedded life, were tempered only by
the vindictive satisfaction with which he
reflected on what the woman was. The
more reason the son had daily to repent -it
the marriage the greater would be the
father's gratification. Matthew knew the
kind of creature she was���knew the life she
would lead her husband now that the liberal
money supplies were cut off. He laughed
aloud, thinking of it. It was his only comfort.

Furthermore, looking through a real diamond the setting is never visible, whereas

who has lived longer in Central Africa than
any other white man. It is eleven years
since he entered the service of the Congo
Free State. Of the hundreds of white servants of the State employed in the far interior, not one, except f.egat, has lived
more than three years in Africa before going
home to Europe for recuperation. Legat,
alone has never asked for a vacation. For
ten years he has not seen the sea. l''or
most of the time he has lived alone, surrounded by savage tribes, and with no comforts or conveniences of civilization save
those which he could himself provide. He
is now almost in the geographical centre of
Africa, the sole representative of the State
in King Msiri's couutry, northwest of Lake
Bangweolo. ,\o agent of the State has
seen him for a year, but it is supposed that
Delcommune's expedition, currying supplies to the lone. Belgian, will soon reach
him.
Legal is now '62 years old. He is so completely isolated from his fellow officers that
if he were to start for the nearest post it
would take him three'and a half months to
reach it; and ho could not reach it steamer
for Europe in less than 200 days, For two
years he lived without a single European
assistant at Luebo, on the Upper Kassai
River, nearly 500 miles above Stanley Pool.
Twice a year a steamer visited him to replenish his supplies, and learn how he was
nourishing iu the wilderness. These were
red-letter days for Legat, for then he received letters from his mother and news from
the outside world. Fatigues, privations.and
isolation apparently have had nooffeot upon
Logat's iron frame. He was born to pioneer
the way into just such savage regions as
Central Africa. He was four months travelling to his presont post, and all his friends
believe he intends to spend years yet in
Africa.
The Congo Free State has twelve agents
in its service who have spent nine years in
the Dark Continent, but, every three years
they have returned to Europe to recruit their
health. The ease of Legal is, soexceptional
that King Leopold 11. has honored him with
a special medal to commemorate his services.
His rank is that of Lieutenant in the public
force, and he is the most striking example
yet known of the possibility of men of certain
temperaments and nigged health living
uninterruptedly in Africa without suffering
from the trying climate.
The Black Death.
The beginnings of the black death aroso
in China about the year 1333 with drought
and famine in the groat river plains, which
were followed by Hoods so violent thai ���101),-
(itli) people perished, (treat telluric convulsions occurred over the same tracts. The
mountain Tsincheoil fell in and vast clefts
were formed, from which it is said that
noxious vapors ascended. Anyhow, Hood
and famine were followed next year by a
terrible plague, which carried oil' 5,000,000
of the wretched Chinese, while in 1337 a
still more dreadful famine destroyed another
4,000,000.
The destructive march of the pestilence
can not now be accurately traced; but it
swept along from oasi to west, slowly
enough, but with inexorable wing. Humors of trouble an.l disaster heralded its
approach. A thick, sinking mist was reported to herald or accompany the march
of the fell destroyer. Nor were there wanting signs and wonders in the sky, and a
grand conjunction of tho throe superior
planets, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars, in the
sign of Aquarius, 24th March, 1345, might
have been read by those acquainted with the
secrets of the stars as portentous of unheard-of disasters.
That the infection was conveyed in the
air and spread itself with the varied tides
and currents of the aerial ocean seems evident, for it fell upon ships at sea and ravaged the most secluded places, but it was also
extremely contagious and followed the
lines of trade routes, and seized upon every
artery of traffic, In England the black
death made its first appearance in Dorsetshire, and, quickly spreading over the West,
it reached London by way of Oxford, leaving death and desolation behind everywhere. It was as fatal in the country as in
the town, Whole villages were depopulated and small towns almost wiped out of existence. Tho dead lay uuburicd as they had
died, for priests had been swept away with
their Hocks, and in many parishes there was
no one left to celebrate mass, while every
trade and craft was suspended in the universal terror and suspense. To adil to the
horror of tho times bands of murderers
roamed about unmolested, robbing alike
the dead and the living ; und dogs, deprived of their masters by death, came together
in packs, made ferocious by hunger, and
scoured the country like so many hands of
wolves.
The Wife of 2,000 Years Ago.
" Wives, obey your husbands" would seem
to be an even stronger point in Confucian
than in Pauline doctrine, from the sample
translations by Miss A.C. Stafford of an ancient Chinese work, in 313 chapters, instructing women as to tho behaviorexpected
of them. The work is 2,000 years old.
Tho first duty of a Chinese woman,
so the book says, was to " reverence her
husband as heaven." She must not hesitate
to die for him, and one of the little anecdotes
related to encourage obedience is that of
a peasant, who, during a severe famine, was
seized by some soldiers, who proposed to
make a meal of him. " .My husband is very
lean," pleaded the wife, " he will bo scarcely a mouthful. I am fleshy and of dark complexion, and they say that the flesh of such
persons is excellent eating." Her argumen
prevailed, and spared her husband, As to
how she should comport herself the book
says: " In tho presence of her parents or
parents-in-law a woman may not sneeze or
cough, neither stretch, yawn, nor loll about
when tired, nor may she presume to stars at
them. She should wear a happy face and a
mild, pleasant deportment in serving them,
in order lo soothe them." Tho wife of a certain Liu Kung-tsch comes in for a large share

The Domestic Tyrant.
The normal idea of a domestic tyrant is of
course some coarse-minded, brutally disposed husband who scattered his household before him as chaff is scattered by tbe wind.
Oppressive as a husband, he is also jealous.
Betore such a man as this the ohildren are
broken-spirited and cowed ; the servants
fly to obey his smallest wish ; the dogs rush
from him, their tails between their legs; to
the very cabman he is a "harbitary.gent;"
to his tenants he is the Black Death in
person. His speech in society is like the
firing off of minute guns, sharp, peremptory,
ungrared by preamble or code. Or it may
be, when he is a hypocrite as well as a
tyrant, his " company manners " are graceful, soft, gentle, and his flattery is as thick
and slab as hutterand honey mixed together.
Women are seldom of the latter type.
They rarely disguise themselves so well.
When a wife has thc box seat and holds
thc reins, the world knows pretty well
what the condition of things really is.
Despising the man whoso place she has
usurped, she is at no pains to conceal her
contempt. She opposes him sharply ; contradicts him flatly ; looks him down at his
own table; and lets both him and the world
seo that she regards him as a fool not worth
the trouble of conciliating, or the effort involved in reasoning with. She interferes
with his every action; forbids him to
smoke : allowances his wine ; sends him
oul or keeps him at home, as she
thinks best; despises his pursuits, and,
when she can, takes them from him as she
would take their toys from her children.
His pet dog she banishes; his favourite
books she puts away ; if he is fond of gardening, she digs up and turns over his
flower-beds for a tennis ground ; if ho is an
adept at tennis, she breaks up the court to
make a rose-garden. Her tyranny is like a
Nasmytli hammer, and finds nothing too
large or too small for its manipulation.
The whole family suffers equally with the
unfortunate husband, Wherever she appears she brings with her both tyranny and
interference. Her children are trained and
managed till thoy have not a spark of naturalness or spontaneity left in them. In
whatever they arc doing, she must interfere
and ordain. At croquet she tells them
where to send the ball; at tennis she makes
them nervous by shouting out unfriendly
commentaries on their play; at the piano
she objects to their fingering, and wishes to
alter their light and shade ; at the easel she
bids them scumble up the whole picture as
it stands and begin it anew on her liues.
She is always changing her servants, with
whose work ami methods she interferes till
they lose their patience���when either they
are impertinent and so discharged on the
spot, or disheartened and discharge themselves. She is the scourge of the family
quite as much as that more brutal natured
man. He is the hornet and she the wasp-
be is the bluebottle and she is the housefly ;
and there is not a pin's poiut to choose between them. Each is detestible after the
law of his or her kind, and the tyranny of a
woman is to the full as ill to bear as the
tyranny of a man, and perhaps it is more
annoying because more incessant.
Besides these two tyrannies of authority
are others which rule the family and make
every member impartially miserable. Look
at the tyranny of children���how they take
the very lifo out of a gentle mother ? Their
tempers, their demands, their wishes, their
dislikes, all rule the order, the common life
of the house, and everything and every person must give way to them. Sometimes one
sees this kind of thing with a widowed
mother, over whom her children attempt to
exert supreme authority. So ceaseless their
demands, and so unsleeping their jealous
activities, she leads among them the life of
the traditional toad under the harrow; and
she has been known to marry the man who
loved her���but she not loving him���to escape from the bondage of her eldestdaughter.
Tyranny is hateful at all times and in ali
circumstances; but the tyranny of the
young brings with it a bitter taste of mock-

which is whaleboiied to a point half-way up
the back, then tapered along the sides to a
small ehou in front, leaving the waist perfectly round. Two yellow China silk
blouses accompany this jacket md skirt,
one finely speckled with black, the other
with pencilled stripes of black more than an
inch apart. Tbey ure shirred to the neck in
front and back, and have a drawing-string
around the waist. A pointed shield-shaped

down collar and cuffs are also scalloped
with black.
Navy blue crepon with snow-flake, of
white, and ribbed crosswise, is one of lhe
novelties for spring dresses. It is made to
give a princesse effect, yet the waist is full,
and is girdled with black satin ribbon to
hide the joining of the skirt. This girdle is
in wide folds even around the lower edge,
and pointed up in Swiss fashion in the back,
the fulness of the bell skirt being gathered
each side of the sloped back seam and
strappod on to the satin. White chiffon is
accordion-pleated as a long plastron, and
hooked to the left under lhe girdle. A collar of white Irish point curves low like a
yoke. The immense sleeves droop at the
top, and are simply turned back an inch
from the wrist and faced with black satin.
A navy blue serge dress has the popular yellow shade for a Mikado blouse of India silk

ground, the whole m accordion pleats that
begin at the back of the neck, then are
drawn forward under the arms, and cross
the fronts below a square yoke of navy blue
satin. A jabot of the broadest sash ribbon
of the same blue shade is pleated in three
clusters at the top, then the ribbon passes
plainly to the waist line ami ends in two

with the deep blue satin. The sleeves are
gigot-sliiiped, and the bell skirt has a wide
border of blue satin ribbon piped with yellow and blue cords. A fawn vigogne dress
with Eton jacket fronts has the coat back
belted with black satin ribbons with sash
ends. Great variety of color is given n the
front of this dress, as the jacket ha3 revers

lace falls from the black ribbon collar.

Remember the Family Anniversaries.
As a people we pay far too little attention to birthdays and other family anniversaries. Too much cannot be done to make
home attractive, so that our boys and girls
will prefer it to all other places.
"This has been the nicest day I ever
knew," said a, boy to his mother one evening. "The birds have all been singing, and
the sun has shone every minute, and everything has been so lovely, just for your birthday, mamma, and I am so glad!" and he emphasized his gladness with a hearty hug and
kiss. For weeks the boy had been looking
forward to this day, planning and making it
little birthday gift as a surprise, and when
the time came his whole mind was given to
making his mother happy.
"But its so much trouble to celebrate
birthdays," complain some mothers, "and
in litrt'e families they come so often."
Yes, it is some trouble, but how can we
keep our children contented and happy at
home without taking trouble? And no
mother regrets the trouble when she sees
her children regarding their home as the
very best place in the whole world. Try to
celebrate the birthdays one year, and see if
it does not "pay" in the enjoyment of the
whole family. Let no one be forgotten from
father to baby, and try to have each one interested in all the others, planning, if possible, some little birthday gift. No mutter
how simple or trifling it may be the love and
thoughtfiilness which go with it will make
it precious.
A Physician's Opinion Abont Corsets.
A physician said ; " With some women I
am told the main object of wearing a corset
is that they shall have fine busts, but as a
matter of fact corset wearing is accountable
for the lack of development that one sees in
many young women of the day. Were they
to throw away their corsets they would find
that in a short time the longed for development would come, and unless they were uncommonly lean or in poor health they would
not have so very long to wait either. In all
the photographs of wild women that one
sees, whether they are Sioux, Sumatrans or
South Sea Islanders, one observes that a
lack of bust development is the exception
and not the rule. Nature is nature every
time, and natural woman is healthy woman
under ordinary circumstances and conditions. I may state that il is not always
well to be too precipitate in this matter of
throwing aside the corset.
" The best way for a woman to rid herself
of corsets is to first loosen them up and wear
them that way for a few weeks. This will
in itself give her great freedom and will prepare her for the greater comfort which she
)s sure to enjoy later when she shall have
finally oast oil her tightly buckled shield
and made of herself a wholly free woman.
Then let the Btrings be let out still further
and further, until the ribs of the corsets give
actually no support to the back, when they
may be discarded. In this particular, you
will see, there is no exception to the rub
  ���������    that radical and extreme measures suddenly
ery and unfitness; and the sense of more applied often result disastrously. It is bet-
than ordinary topsyturveydom associated ! ter to take the reform in hand with a deter-
with it gives it a grim grotesqueuess that
is half ils unpleasantness. ���--

Fawn-coloured wool dresses with black
and yellow accessories are newer and more
stylish than the gray and tan wools so long

is as often heightened by yellow combinations as by the use of bright red. Exclusive
modistes havo imported street dresses of
fawn wool dotted with black, mado with a
jacket corsago that hits throe Norfolk box

satin ribbon tied iu the middle with upright loops ami long sash ends. The open
fronts are straight, and do not quite meet,
yet have large buttons and button-holes.

" Yes, I have no objection to what are
known as 'waists.' They are all well
enough, if the women must wear something
to keep them in shape, as they call it. There
is a great deal of difference between the
reeds and bamboos in the ' waists' and the
steel and whalebone of the corsets. Compared with the corsets they are, indeed, quite
harmless,"
Out of Kepair,
Mr, l'eterby���I'll have to send Molly's
shoes to the shoemaker.
Mrs. l'eterby���Are they very much out

shoes every week.
" I should say they were out of repair.
There is such a big hole in the sole of one
of her shoos that she loses her stocking
through it,"
and for a quarter of a centiry has almost
left it entirely to its own devices as regards
military defence. It is safe to say that
Canadians would have attempted nothing
very important in that, direotion had it not
been for the constant agitation of the Conservative Loyalists, many of whom appear
to be firmly persuaded that Canada will ul
some future date bo the battlefield upon
which the two great Anglo-Saxon nations of
the globe will light it out.
'This feeling was atone timeso strong in the
House of Commons that when the late Sir
John Macdonald, then Premier of Canada,
proposed the construction of the Canadian
I'acilic Bailway, he spoke of its commercial
advantages usofau important, hul secondary
consideration, his main argument being that
tbe railway would form an uninterrupted
line of communication and defence from
ocean to ocean, which could be placed in
direct communication with Great Britain
and India by armed steamers at each of ils
extremities.
For the purpose of defending this line and
of bearing the brunt of a first attack, a permanent militia establishment composed of
the whole population, divided into classes,
was organized, and when, some years ago,
the imperial forces evacuated every Cana-
di an fortress except Halifax, small garrisons of Canadian regulars, doing duty also
us military training sobo-ds, were quartered
at Frederioton, Quobeo, St. John, Kingston,
Toronto, Winnipeg, and Victoria, in all a
total establishment of (ICG non-commissioned olliccrs and men.
As a military line ol communication and
defence the Canadian Pacific is by no means
completed, At its western extremity, between Vancouver and Asia, a line of armed
steamers has, it is true, been established,
but without the protection of a powerful
fortress these steamers could not render
very efficient service in the way of disembarking troops. Portland, Me., is the eastern terminus of the Canadian Pacific for
commercial purposes: the military terminus
should be Halifax, but as there are uo direct
communications by rail between Halifax
and Quebec, owing to the absence of a bridge
over the St. Lawrence, Quebec becomes the
real terminus of the military line and remains, as of old, the key to Canada.
Such as it is, the Ciiiulian Pacilic line of
communication might, in consequence of the
rapidity with which large bodies ot men
could be moved from one point to another,
be successfully held against an invading
enemy by an army numerically weaker. But
what could the Canadian Government do
for the defence ol a frontier extending over 3,000 miles with 1,000 men
of regular troops scattered from one
end of the country to the other in the
military schools, and with a militia force
which Gen. Herbert, thu Commander-in-
Chief, describes in his last report as totally
unfit for service, not tine single battalion
being at present in marching condition.
" The equipment in use in the active mill*
tia,"suys the General, " is also obsolete in
pattern, and a large proportion perished
irom age and severe usage. There is not a
battalion that could turn out in complete
marching order on a given day, though
many have, at their own expense, provided
some of the most necessary articles. Moreover, the equipment docs not exist in store
which it would be necessary to issue in the
event of grave emergency. I have not inspected a single battalion in which the men's
boots would have stood one month's active
service, or a regiment of cavalry or battery
of artillery in which the saddlery harness
could be expected to bear a similar strain."
This inefficiency does not come from a
want of martial spirit among the people,
nor from ignorance or negligence on the part
of the officers, of whom, as a body, it is impossible to speak too highly. The General
says :
" While I cannot express myself as satisfied with the condition of the permanent
force, I must bear witness to the excellent
work it has done in spite of many disadvantages. It posseses some excellent officers
and non-commissioned officers, to whose constant devotion to duty, alone, is to he ascribed the marked results that ure visible,
in the superior training of every officer and
man of the active militia which has passed
under their instruction. The faults that I
have noted aro, in the majority of cases, due
to primary defects of organization."
With obsolete arms, worn-out equipment,
and a system utterly bad, no satisfactory results can be expected and none have been
obtained. During the half-breed rebellion
of ISM") it required months to send 4,000
imperfectly equipped men to tho front, and
it seems extremely doubtful whether, in a
case of grave emergency, of the 40,000 men
of active militia more than 15,000 could bo
armed and equipped from tlie Government
stores. A year would scarcely sullice lo
(trill and discipline such it large number of
raw recruits, Wero this accomplished tho
force would still bo almost totally deficient in artillery, of which Gen. Herbert
speaks as follows;
" In the matter of artillery material tho
militia is very deficient. The eighteen field
batteries aro armed with guns which aro
still good, but there is no reserve of guns,
nor is there a spare gun wheel to bo hail
nearer than Woolwich. Of heavy guns tho
Dominion does not possess a single modern
specimen. Of the armament handed over by
tbe Imperial Government, a largo portion
could not he mounted and a park could not
be fired. Those at Victoria, B.C., loaned
by the Imperial Government, are not at present fit for service. There is no sufficient
reserve of ammunition,"
It is evident that such a forco as the
General describes would be quite insufficient
to defend the lino of communication, and,
in case of a serious invasion, the oniy apparent alternative would be to do what Sir
Guy Carneton did in 1775, when Montgomery invaded Canada, concentrate all the
available forces around Quebec, tho head o(
navigation, and await reinforcements from
England. The matter has assumed such
importance in the mind of the Commander-
in-Chief that he has resolved to give special
attention to the question of defence, as he
says in his report: "So fnr I have dealt
only with the active condition of tho forco
to which the country must look for protec-
remains to be discussed. I have submitted

THE 00NS0 ARMY,
llrilled mnl Uniformed Cannibals Unit Are
I'viTlli-iit Soldiers.
In ISS.'S Stanley took 100 Zanzibar and
Haussa soldiers on the Congo. In the service of the Congo Free State to-day are
,'i,'~00 soldiers, a large number of whom are
recruited from the villages along the great
river and its tributaries. The head of the
little army is the Governor Goneral, but the
active control of the military force is in the
hands of the Commander of the Public
Force, who at present is Commander Four-
din, His headquarters arc at Benin, The
at'tiiy is divided into companies, with eleven
Captains, ten Lieutenants, thirty-nine sublieutenants, and sixty Sergeants. Most of
the olliccrs are Belgians.
The litlle army is spread over the twelve
districts into which the Congo State is divided. It is kept busy policing tho Government stations, giving to the Governor of
each district the assistance he needs for the
exploration of his territory and consolidating the political influence of the State.
The largest and strongest posts are those on
the Mobangi and the Aruwimi rivers and
in Katanga, where strong forces are kept
in order to suppress slave raids.
In lSSli the Government, decided to create
its army out of native elements. It found
that the Bangala cannibals ou the Upper
Congo developed into excellentsoldiers, and
that it was much cheaper to enlist and drill
them than to bring soldiers many hundreds
of miles from Zanzibar and the northwest
coast. The enlisted men are between fourteen and thirty years of age, and their term
of service is five years. Camps of instruction are at Leopoldville and Equator Station.
That use of the natives has bad an excellent etl'ect on the country, for the soldiers,
under strict discipline, become in a large
degree civilized, and are efl'ectivo friends of
the State after their term of service has expired. Most of the military stations arc
commanded by Europeans, although some
of the posts around the main stations are
under the charge of black sergeants. A
number of the stations have been established at the request of native chiefs who like a
protection, and in return for the advantages
they derive from the presence of the sol
cupieil by the village of lelnkh-Betou.', and
hire carts for a short jaunt into the interior ; and when they have gone about two
miles they will pause to take in the curious
scene presented in this picture ; for here is
seen one of the most interesting results of
the great wave of Krakatau.
There was just one man amid all that wild
scene of death and devastation who was not
overwhelmed in the common ruin. He escaped while 40,000 perished, He was the
lighthouse keeper,wbo lived alone on an isolated rock in the strait. It Was broad daylight when Krakatau burst asunder, but in
a few moments the heavens were so densely
shrouded by dust, mud, and smoke that the
darkness of midnight covered all the channel, The guirdian of the lighthouse was in
the lantern 130 feet above the sea level.
Here he remained safe and sound in the
midst of the terrible commotion.
He felt the trembling of his lighthouse,
but it was so dark that he could not sec the
threatened danger. He did not know that
a tremendous wave had almost overwhelmed
the lighthouse, and that its crest had nearly touched the base of the lantern. He did
not hear it because he was deafened by the
awful detonation of Krakatau,
In a few moments the wave, over a hundred feet in height, had swept along a coast
line of 100 miles on both sides of the channel.
Scores of populous villages were buried
deep beneath the avalanche of water. Great
groves of cocoanut palms were levelled to
the ground. Promontories were carried
away. New bays were dug out of the
yielding littoral. Every work of human
hands except that lighthouse was destroyed,
and 40,000 persons perished in the deluge
that mounted from the sea or beneath the
ruin of mud that tilled the heavens.
This is a picture of a little sidewheel
steam-boat that was borne on the top of that
wave through forests and jungle, over two
miles into the country, and was left as the
wave receded in the position here shown. It
will be remembered that for weeks before
the final cataclysm at Krakatau, the volcano was in a suite of eruption. Pleasure
parlies were made up at Batavia to visit
the volcano. Not a few people landed on
the island,little dreaming that in the twinkling of an eye two-thirds of it was to be
blown into the air its though shot from a
gun. They wished to get as near a? they
thought they might safely venture to the
growling crater. This little steamboat, i..
the day before the explosion, carried one ot
these parties to  the  island.    There were
only twenty on board besides the crew. They
spent a couple of hours around the island,ami
 * I then steamed up the deep and narrow bay
diery they agree to furnish the men with ������ Lampong, and it is supposed they anchor-
rations.   The Congo State now hits thirty- j m- fol, t-,0 llig|lt j��� f,.01lt ���f the big town of
Telokh-Belong,which was one of the largest
settlements on the south coast of Sumatra.
The ill-fated pleasure party was never
heard of again. It is supposed that the boat
was turned over and over like an egg shell
in the surf. It had every appearance of
such rough usage when it was found some
months later. The machinery and furniture were badly broken, and were strewn
about in the greatest contusion. But the
vessel held together, and was finally set
down in good shape, erect on her keel, as
she is seen in thc picture, which was made
from a drawing by Mr. Korthals, a member
| of the Dutch scientific party sent out to
: study the elfect of ihe Krakatau eruption.
Only two bodies were found in the vessel.
They were, of course, bo'ow deck. As it
was morning when she was picked up by
the wave, it is supposed that nearly everybody was on shore. Not a vestige remains
of llie villages that lined the water edge.
But the hulk of this little boat still stands,
battered and broken, though as erect as
when she ploughed the channel, and she is

Brain in Winter.
Bruin does not retire from the i_r._
till he is compelled to do so by frost and
snow, He lives through the summer on berries, buds, insects oi every kind, grass, mice
or auy small animal that he can get. I may
say, for the benefit of the gentlemen that
publish so many terrifying bear siories in
the daily newspapers, that bruin is as harmless as a cow during tlie summer, and will
take to his heels in fright on sight of a human being. It is only when he leaves his
lair too early in the spring and he is not
able to find anything to eat that he will attack man ; but he prefers a calf or sheep,
and tho farmer's tale is often short at sundown.
But, as I have said, when winter overtakes him he sets about lo find a winter
home. He has very likely, during tlie slimmer, when poking his nose into hollow trees
looking for the honey of wild bees, seen
some place that will suit him, and loihislie
goes straightway. The tree must be a large
one, and he will not select it unless there is
a space wiih plenty of room where the snow
or rain can not reach him. This secured, he
bundles himself together, bis head on his
paws, closes his eyes, and remains in this
posture, till " those blind motions ot the
spring" tell that "the year has turned."
'I hen he drags himself out ami begins his
struggle for an existence.
Sometimes, however, when lying in this
stupor, loud Bounds startle him. and his
tree castle shakes; this is when the lumber-
men huvo found him and are assailing the
tree wilb their axes. He seldom escapes,
and if he does he will surely die in the

Wonders of the Human Heart.
A curious calculation hits been made by
Dr, Richardson, giving the work of the
heart in mileage. Presuming that the blood
was thrown out of the heart at each pulsation in the proportion of sixty-nine strokes
