Continued from last week.
"No?   I live here because it's quiet
nnd out of the wuy; and I own the
It was   my   father's
house. It was my fathers. It's
rather a nice view, especially at
night, with the lights on the water.
The house is old, vory old, and it
wants repairing, modernizing and
all that, and I nicar. to do it—when
I can afford it."
He pulled at an old-fashioned bell
and the door was opened presently,
and with an air of caution, by an
old woman with so strange an expression on so pallid a face, that
Vune could not help staring at her;
and he stared the harder when, instead of speaking, Julian Shore muds
signs to her in thr deaf and dumb
alphabet on his fingers.
The old woman took her eyes for a
moment from her master's face to
glance at Vane, then nodded assenting. , and closing the door disappeared through unother which led to
the basement.
"Come upstairs, will you?" said
Julian. "I live on the upper floor for
the sake of thu view."
He led tho way into a sitting-room
which was as old-fashioned as the
exterior of the house. The walls were
ol oak, blackened by age—not Tot- |
tenham Court Hoad varnish—there
was a massive mantelpiece as black
as the panelling, and the furniture,
old and heavy, was in perfect harmony with the ruom. There was a
piano, also of ouk. It was a very
quaint room, and imposing, but it
struck Vane as sombre, not to say
weird.
Ho went to the window and looked
out.
"You'vt a fine view of the river,"
he said, "and this is a grand old
room."
As he spoke he noticed a faint
smell like that emitted by pungent
chemicals. It came from a door lending out of the room, and Julian
stepped to It and closed It softly.
The old woman appeared with a
tray and presently set out a nice little lunch of sweetbreads, pate-de-foie
grns, Swiss cheese, and a blancmange. The claret was in a Venetian
flask, and a small bottle of yellow
Chartreuse stood beside it. Having
laid out the table, tho woman, after a fixed look at her master—the
kind of lonlt one sees in the eyes of
a well-trnitled and devoted spaniel—
left the rOom, and Julian drajv a
chair to Iho table for Vane and invited him to be seated.
"You »eem to have very comfortable quarters," said Vano. "Your
servant is deaf and dumb, isn't she?"
"Yes." said Julian. "She was an

afraid to say how old she is. But
■he is very faithful and attentive,
and serves my purpose."
"And you don't mind her—affliction?" said Vane as he helped himself to sweetbread.
JJiian smiled.
"Ko," he replied. "I suppose It's
beoause I'm used to her. She is very
—Intelligent, and, as I say, she is devoted to mo."
"She looks it," remarked Vane.
"This is splendid claret."
Julian smiled, the smile ot m man
whose wine is praised.
"It Is some my father left me. By
the way, I fancy it came originally
from Lesborough Court."
"Then I hope there is some left
there," said Vane. "You know the
place?"
"No," replied Julian as he handed
ths pate. "I have never been there.
My father and the earl quarrelled—
but no doubt, you know all about
that. No, I have nover been there.
But you know it; you have stayed
there?"
Vane nodded as he looked round
the room. It seemed strange, improbable tl—s.t he should be sitting here so
cosily with this newly-discovered cousin.
"Yes; I used to go there as a boy;
and until recently I was asked to pay
a kind of regulation visit. But tho
earl quarrelled with me as he quarrelled with your father, lie—expected
too much."
"As how?" asked Julian, filling his
(lass.
"Oh, well, he wanted to plan out,
direct my life. Wanted me to go Into
politics and stand for the borough,
in the Conservative interest."
"And you are a Liberal?" suggested Julian.
"No, I'm not. I'm nothing. But I
declined to take my politics from his
lordship, and also declined to become a—a dependent, So we parted
and I went abroad—" llis voice died
away.
"And were wrecked?" said Julian,
Interrogatively.
Vane seemed to dry up, to freeze.
on the moment.
"Yes," he said, absently. "But let
us talk of something else, of yourself. I could almost have found it
possible to be sorry that I was alive
when you came into Mr. Tresslder'i
Just now."
Julian's dark fnce flushed for a moment and his lids drooped—his face
looked like a mask when his eyes
were closed, do expressive were they
—then he ruined them, smiled and
shrugged his shoulders, and waved
his hands with a gesture that reminded Vane ot his cousin's Spanish
blood.
"That's very kind and generous of
you—Vane," he said, with a little
pause before the "Vane." "Of course
I should have liked to have been tho
Earl of Lesborough: but—ah, wall,
perhaps 1 shall be as happy as II i
were."
"I dare say," said Vano in his
blunt way. "I don't suppose"—he
stifled a sigh—"that it will make uie
any the happier."
Julian looked at him with veiled
curiosity. "Oh, youl" he said. "I
can imagine that yoll will make quite
a typical Kngiish nobleman, You aro
cut out for the position und will Iill
it well. Whilo I"—he waved his whito
hands again—"I'm scarcely so suitable a subject. I'm only half English. My mother was a Spaniard, and
I have nothing—whut do you call it?
—feudal about inc. You will marry—
but perhaps you are already married;
yes?" he broke otf, his almost almond eyes on Vane's with an apparently trunk and disinterested interrogation.
Van* filled his glass and replied, as
1 have no wife."
"All, but you soon will have one,"
said Julian, smilingly, "You will be
a great catch. The parti of the season. You know that you are tremendously rich as well as noble?"
Vane nodded. "So I'm given to understand," he said. "But 1 shall rfev-
er niarry."
"Never is a long time," commented Julian with a smile. "Try this
Chartreuse, will you? It also cuine
from the Lesborough cellars, 1 believe. You will go dowu there at
once, will you not?"

The Strongest King.
The strongest king on record, so ths
story goes, appears to have been Caius
Julius Verus Maxlmus, tbe son of a
Thraclnn peasant and emperor of
Rome. It is related that with one of
his butlers ho stopped a chariot dashing by at full speed, that he could
draw a loaded wagon, by a blow of
his fist could break the hardest stones
between his lingers and split trees with
bis hand. This redoubtable sovereign
was eight feet high, and his wife's
bracelets served him for finger rings.
We bave passed over Og, the king of
Basban, who, as the rabbis say, was
nearly six miles high, drank water
from the clouds and toasted fish by
holding them up to the sun and who,
wben Noah refused him shelter ln the
ark, survived those troublous times by
wading through the flood, which only
reached to his knees, and of Atlas, king
of Mauritania, who Is said to have supported the world upon his shoulders.

Search For a Cholera Patient.
A reporter of the Paris Matin was
sent out the other day on tne unenviable mission to Investigate an alleged cholera case, which lt was reported had been conveyed that day to
the St. Antolne Hospital.
Arriving at the hospital the Pressman asked the doorkeeper to be
directed to the governor's office, but
was informed that that high official
had gone for a drive and would not
return until late.
"The superintendent, then?"—"He
Is away on a holiday."—"The treasurer?"—"Also away on a holiday."—"The
house physician?"—"Also away on a
holiday."—"Then, who ls In charge Of
the establlsnment?"—"The nurses,
sir."
Having ascertained the location of
the ward where the suspected case
was lying, the journalist next addressed a servant, asking for the head
nurse.
"The day or night nurse, sir?"—
"The day nurse, of course."—"She has
gone for tho day."—"Then, the night
nurBC."—"Slio has not yet anlvoU."—
"Is thero an under-nurse?"—"YeB;
but she had a day off to-day."
The bewildered reporter made his
way into ihe ward, and questioned the
patients one by one until he enme to
the alleged cholera patient Asked
whether he was really suffering from
the dread disease, the man answered
that he did not know, and no one else
seemed to know.
A  Race Against Time.
It would be Interesting to try In
London an experiment made ln Paris
tho other day.
Some frequenters of a cafe In the Rue
de Richelieu near the Bourse, ln the
centre of the city, got Into a dispute
as to the quickest mode of conveyance
in Paris, and it was decided to put the
mattor to a practical test.,
It waB arranged that a message
should be sent to some friends in a
cafe ln the Avenue de la Grande Ar-
mee, on the outskirts of the city, a
distance of two and a-half miles.
To convey the message there were
employed:—A cyclist, a cab, an omnibus, the Paris "tube" and the pnou-
matlc postcard delivery, while lt also
was to be telegraphed and telephoned.
The results were as fallows:—
The cyclist, an easy flrst; time, 11
minutes 15 seconds.
The cab, time, 23 minutes.
Tho messenger who took the "tube"
31 minutes.
Tbe omnibus, 34 minutes.
Tbe (telegram, 35 minutes.
Tbe "pneumatic" postcard, 3 hours
3 min.
Tha telephone message could not be
delivered at all owing to th* Una being
blocked.
An  Ancient   Site   Snld  to   Have  Been
Built by  Phnrnoh.
The crocodile, oue of the most sacred
animals of the east, has given its nnme
to several ancient sites. Of tlie various j
"cities of crocodiles," tbe names of
which have been handed down to us by
Herodotus, Pliny and Strubo, perhaps
the most striking was the "Crocodilopo-
11s" of the ancient Egyptian province of
Fayum, wbicli, according to,tradition,
was built by that phnraoh who "made
the lives of the children of Israel bitter with bard service."
This province lies within an almost
complete circle of hills—a little oasis
In the midst of the desert, where roses
and grapes mingle with tigs and olives
and luxuriant palm trees grow almost
Into forests.
Its capital Is Medinet, and n little to
tbe north of Uie city nre a number of
irregularly shaped mounds. Beneath
these are the ruins of the phnraoh
built "Crocodllopolls," the "City of
Crocodiles." later called Arslnoe. and
the shrine of the sacred crocodile of the
neighboring Lake Moerls, which was
then 460 miles In circumference,

treatise were published ut St. Die before 1507, and a few years afterward
an edition without date was printed at
Lyons by .Teon de la Place. All these
editions are of extreme rarity, and
probably that printed ut Lyons ls the
rarest of all, though the library of the
British museum possesses two copies
of It. It has never been suggested that
any maps were engraved to accompany either of the editions, but it lias nlways been supposed Unit the earliest

Origin of the Lucifer Hatch.
The late Sir Isaac Holden's inventions ln connection with Uie wool combing Industry have almost obscured
from the public's remembrance the fact
that he was also the originator of the
luclfer match. This happened whllj
filling the position of lecturer on chemistry at the Castle Stroet academy,
Reading. He used to rise nt 4 In Uie
morning In order to pursue his studies
and found the old fashioned flint nnd
steel extremely inconvenient. So one
day he made a paste of phosphorus and
other substances, stuck It on the end of
a sliver of wood and found It would
ignite on being rubbed agniust auy
rough substance. Hidden himself did
not realize the importance of his discovery. Not so, however, a pupil of his
to whom hs showed it. This youngster.
who chanced to be the son of a London
manufacturing chemist, at onco wrote
to his father about It, and shortly after
luclfer matches were issued to the
world.—London Mall.
linear Thing; About Rouge.
The chief of the bureau of chemistry
of the department of agriculture, according to the Salt Lake Tribune, was
asked by a reporter why he did not Investigate rouge. "Rouge," the reporter
said, "may be very harmful, very poisonous, sir. Don't you think that lt requires Investigation?" The chemist
smiled. "No," be answered; "I can't
say I do. If rouge were poisonous, unnumbered women would have died of
lt long ago. By the way, I'll tell you a
queer thing about rouge. It is something that I came upon one day lu n
pharmacy, and I think lt illustrates an
odd phase of human nature. A young
girl was buying a pot of rouge, and I
heard her murmur to tbe clerk, 'You
guarantee that this will not rub off?'
'I do,' the clerk answered. 'This, like
all our rouges, Is warranted to stand
the hardest kiss of Investigation that
any of your women friends will try
on It"

'(Knockout  Droits"  In  a Ring.
"A knockout ring,", suid the detective.
"Look at it well. It belonged to Jlm»
my tho Kid.    Ho was notorious."
The ring was of gold, and it contained a huge dark blue stone.
"Now, watch tbe stone," continued
tlie detective. And he pressed with
his thumb a spring, smaller than a
pinliond, on the gold loop opposite the
setting.
Instantly llie middle of the stone slipped back like a sliding door, and out
of the opening throe or four drops of
fluid fell. Whon the detective ceased
to press the spring the stone closed up
again.
"See how It works?" he snld. "I sit
wilh jou, and tliore are two glasses
of liquor before us. Talking away, 1
draw the hand with tlie ring on it
across your glass, and with my thumb
I press the spring. Then into your

Took Ills M.,,1. In His Cabin.
All Australian millionaire, Mr. James
Tyson, left behind him when he died
a fortune of £8,000,000. One of tlier
many stories concerning him tells how
ou one occasion he wns a passenger
on a Queensland coasting steamer. As
usual, when traveling he declined to
undress at night und lay in his bunk
fully clothed, boots nnd all. He had
taken thither with him, moreover,
three loaves of bread upon which to
subsist for forty-eight hours in order
to save the expense of meals. Tbe stewards complained to the purser of the
crumbs which the millionaire's methods caused in tlie cabin. But nothing
would induce Tyson to eat bis loaves
elsewhere than ln his bunk. Grout was
his rage when at the end of the voyage
he was charged not only full rate, but
one-fourth extra for having "taken his
meals In his cabin."
Sell Respect.
Self respect ls nt tbe bottom of all
our love of life. Lessen our self respect and mnn Is willing to throw his
life away in debauchery and the worst
kind of dissolute living. Self respect
Is the bond that holds nil his powers
together, that makes him able to act,
fo bear, to endure. Now, nothing but
ceaseless striving for conduct, for morality, for principle, can give you self
respect. Every man who deliberately
doos wrong and doos not strive to put
it beneath his foot ns he would an as-
sassiu seeking to tnke his life loses self
respect, and his power will pass away
little by little.
Ears  or  Lobsters.
Most curious are the ears of lobsters.
Each Is a sack or bag containing fluid
and "ear stones," these last being particles of mineral matter, or, in some
cases, particles of sand. They Increase
the vibrations sot up by sound waves,
whicll in due season Impinge on the
delicate cells of the ear, which contain
the ends of the nerve of hearing. These
hist in turn convey the impressions to
whnt serves the lobster by wuy of a
brain, and a very respectable nervous
mass it ls.
Sleep.
To sleep ls to strain and purify our
emotions, to deposit the mud of life,
to calm tho fever of tlie soul, to return
Into the bosom of maternal nature,
thence to reissue, healed and strong.
Sleep Is a sort of innocence and purification. Blessed Is he who gave it to
Uie poor sous of man as a sure and
faithful companion of life, our daily
healer and consoler.—M. Aniiel.

Killing a Robin.
There are persons at the present day
—and not all old women either—who
believe thnt killing a robin will bring
bad luck. According to ancient belle',
the storm cloud was n huge bird. The
Arabians represented his wings as
measuring 10,000 fnllioius. This bird
lived on worms, the latter being the
streaks of lightning accompanying
storms. The Germans remodeled the
fiction by creating the god Thor, whose
bird was tbo robin. Consequently to
kill a robin flrst meant death by lightning, then bad luck.

A Disappoint!.,-. C-Irlirilr.
An odd Impression was that which
George Ellot conceived of Schiller after her visit to Weimar wilh Lewes In
the August of the yeur of "the union,"
18.-. She was thrilled, she says, by
the legend ovor the poet's old house,
"Hlcr wolinto Schiller," but something
In the nature of disillusionment awaited hor within. It wns very Interesting
to see his study, left In its original
stnte. But when It came to his skull,
"which wc snw for the first time, we
were amazed at tue smalluoss of the Intellectual region."
After that she could take no further
pleasure In the contemplation of the
too flattering bust aud portrait. And
then "Ranch told us that Schiller had
a 'miserable Stlrno'—a wretched forehead," while to complete tbe destruction of her Ideal she heard how "Tleck,
the sculptor, was wont to declare thut
something in Schiller's whole person
reminded him of—a camel."—Pall Mall

THE GARDEN OP _D_«.
'Ceylon's Tradition About Adam and
Eve's First Habitation.
Ceylon, lu local tradition, was the
garden of Eden, and you will be
shown Adam's peak to prove It, and
Adam's bridge, Ibe chain of rocks and
Islets which the maps show stretching
across from Ceylon to the coast of India. Eve, or Heba, as tbe eastern story calls her, was/-well satislied with
her lot ln the garden of Ceylon, but
Ataml, manlike, showed a disposition
to rove, or, as we might now say, emigrate. One day while wnuderiug on
tbe west coast he met n straugo man,
who ln the course of conversation hold
before him a fascinating panorama of
tbe lovely country across the waters-
gardens and rich orchards, valleys
teeming with birds aud gazelles and
all tbe rest. Atneii had seen nothing
like lt ln Ceylon. He had always been
trying to coax Heba Into emigration
without success, but now his mind wns
made up, and he wont home to the
shades of Adam's peak und ordered
her peremptorily to pack up and make
ready for a start. Heba pleaded In
vain, but Ataml was persistent and .
led the way across "Adam's bridge"
to India, where he found, to bis dismay, a dreary and forbidding wilderness. Tbe panorama muu (it will be
readily guessed who he was) had de-
; celved Atami, and the disappointed
wanderer fell Into despair. Then it
was that the angel messenger came
and gave the disobedient Ataml orders
to go on Into the desert and wild places
and suffer the punishment that wus
his due. Ataml's uobllity of spirit
showed itself hero, for he begged tbe
angel to Intercede that his own punishment might be doubled and Heba
permitted to return to the garden of
Eden and be given a fresh mate and
a fresh start! You will be apt to think
that this chivalrlc example of gallon
try set by the heroic Ataml has not
been generally emulated by his descendants In that corner of the world
when you see a native walking ulon.,'
enjoying a smoke or a chew of bhang
while his wife struggles wearily behind with the family load ou her delicate head!
DIAMOND SMUGGLERS.
Few  C«ut_h.   Owing  lo   Their   Ingenuity In Hiding: Gems.
"Diamond smugglers are a constant
source of worry to us," said tbe customs house inspector. "Despite every
precaution taken here and abroad to
spot them, not more than 10 per cent
are caught with the goods. There seems
to be no limit to the devilish Ingenuity
employed by these—I was going to say
gentry—but there ure quite as many
women Iu the business as men.
"It Is really wonderful, when you
come to thluk of it, thnt we are ever
able to make a good haul when you
consider how easily diamonds can be
concealed. Hollow heels are n favorite
receptacle for the precious stones, aud
I understand that Uiere are places In
Europe where you can buy shoes specially constructed with spaces Iu the
heels,
"I remember one woman—she Is still
ln the business—who displayed great Ingenuity in smuggling diamonds. It
was ouly by chance that we cnught her
at one of her tricks. She arrived with
a very striking Paris bonnet, which
was ornamented wilh bunches of
grapes. While we were examining hor
baggage this dream of a lint blew off
and wus smashed by a passing truck.
I rushed gallantly to recover the hat
and then sow that each of the grapes
contained a diamond or precious stoue.
She got what was left of the hat, but
nothing more.
"What can a man of ordinary perception do with such people? They
will best blm every timo unless he's
gifted with second sight. I never bco
a chap with long hair but I tbluk of
tbe day we picked $10,000 worUi of
stones from a fellow's head who woro
* pompadour like a brush heap.
"No, we can't keep up witb ull their
tricks and don't expect to. It's the behavior of the smuggler Uiat generally
gives him away. When wc see a man
or tvotnan ncUug uuonsy, nervous, betraying his or her guilt by gestures, we
have him or ber searched. One gets to
know the smuggler face after a time,
and so captures are made."
A Simple Care.
It Is said that John Wesley was once
walking with a brother, who related
to htm his troubles, saying he did not
know what he should do. They were
at that moment passing a stono wall
to a meadow, over whleh a cow was
looking.
"Do you know," asked Wesley, "why
that cow looks over that wall':"
"No," replied tho one In trouble.
"I will tell you," said Wesley. "Because she cannot look through lt. And
that ls what you must do with your
troubles—look over and above them."
The Han For Ihe Job.
"But," asked the proprietor ef the
' Bkyehye  apartments,  "do  you  think
this man ls suited for the position ot
I Janitor?"
"Oh,  splendidly,"  replied  the manager.   "He has been at various times
f an Iceman, a coalman and a policeman.
Ob, he's just os Independent and sassy
, as he can be."
A Curiosity.
"Talking about scientific curiosities,
I have discovered one thing nbout an
engine which ls a flat contradiction."
"What ls that?"
"That it Is hottest when It's coaled."
COWS AT CALVING TIME.
Their   Care    nnd    Feed   Before    ond
After Parturition.
A Wisconsin farmer, writing to
Hoard's Dairyman on tbe cure of cows
bofore calving, says:
It is a good practice to milk a cow
previous to calving lf the udder la
greatly distended and hard. We practiced it at first witb some hesitation,
baving never heard of auy one doing it
before, but no bad results ever followed. In some instances Uie cow has
been milked regularly ouee a day for
a week before the calf came. It certainly ls an act of humanity, as It loss-
ens the animal's discomfort and often
prevents tho bad effects of a caked or
Inflamed udder. We would never allow
a cow at such a time to be exposed to
—vere storms even if the weather
should be warm.
If the cow is ready to calve in October or later she should be plaood iu a
roomy and well littered bpx stall at
ulglit; In the duy time, if tlie weather
Is pleasant, she may run out. Nolbing
but censure should be accorded any
man who permits bis cow to eulve In
the stall, whether fastened with tio or
stanchion, yot It Is not uncommon te
hear of Biicb things being done.
We can see no harm iu leaving the
calf with Its mother for a day. It gets
Its nourishment in the natural manner
and is stronger nt the end of twenty-
four hours thnn when removed nt once
and fed from a pail.
If there is inflammation of the udder
bathe with hot water, massaging it
gently. Camphorated sweet oil is excellent to remove caked condition, but
lf the cow bas been milked beforehand
this Is not so liable to occur.
Niue times out of ten where milk
fever sets In it is caused by a chill to
the system. For this reason avoid cold
water and avoid allowing tlio cow to
stand hi a draft of air. Give a pail of
water which has the chill removed. A
slop of ground oats and warm water
containing a little salt is excellent for
any cow within a few hours after calving. The quantity should be about two
or three quarts. A bran mash is also
good. A cow should be brought to full
feed slowly after she has dropped ber
calf. Begin wltb bran or ground oats
or middlings, avoiding corn, which is
too heating to the system, but feed geu-
erjusly after Ojcouple of weeks.
We have rarely ever given any ep-
som salts at sucb times, simply because
such a renied; did not appear to be
required. The milking out before calving does a great deal toward warding
off trouble and insuring normal conditions, strange as this may appear. In
cold weather cows before calving
should be fed littlo grain, but plenty
of roughage, clover bay, ensilage, corn
fodder and roots, if possible. Bran is
excellent und should form tbe principal food aside from these rough feeds.
Plenty of water is essential. It acts
as a cleanser and flushes the bowels
and kidneys naturally and effectively,
but directly at or before the time of
calving it must be giveu with Uie chill
Off.   This bl esscnlial.
Dl-restlbllil_r of Milk.
Whole raw milk Is more completely
digested than either pasteurized or
cooked milk. Raw skim milk is apparently as easily digested as raw
whole milk. Experiments with calves
proved this, and recent observations
made In large hospitals proved the
same to be true of the human.
Improving: llie  Dairy nerd.
The English dairy associations, after
n long period of observation, decided
that extra quality must bo looked for
by Improving the breeds and judicious
selections rather than by auy special
foods or methods of feeding.
MAXIMS FOR DAIRYMEN
A chauffeur recently fined at Kensington, England, said be had agreed
with his employer that he (tbe chauffeur) should pay all fines. Tbe practice, he added, was almost universal In
motoring circles.
The Early Baom.
"When I was a boy," said the rather
rain person, "everybody said I was going to be president of the United
States."
"Yes," answered the seasoned politician. Tour case simply Illustrates
aay argument that lt Isn't safe to start
• heeas ts* tat s_ss4 ef election." .
Cooling the milk ln a temperature of
50 degrees Fahrenheit or below, as
soon as it is drawn, chocks the action
of bacteria, thus adding to Uie keeping
quality of milk. Boiling milk nt the
dairy prevents contamination during
delivery and subsequently. Everything
lu the dairy room must be kopt clean,
and the floor must be damp. Under
these conditions germs cannot fly
about. The utensils used In the dairy
Bhould be washed and sterilized after
each using.
The llllklnar Period.
It Is neither prolitable nor necessary
for a cow to go dry more than four to
six weeks. Especially should your
young cows be watched and not allowed to acquire the habit of drying up too
soon.—Farm Visitor.
When the Calf Comea.
Rich foods should be withheld for a
short time prior and subsequent to
cnlvlug. When the calf Is dropped the
udder of thc cow should hnvo prompt
attention. An obstacle may be removed from the teat the flrst hour tbat
later would baffle Bclence.
UIkUI  Way to Milk.
Before commencing to milk brush all
loose dirt from tho sides end udder of
the cow. After a little manipulation of
the teats and udder Uie milk is ready
to "come down;" then ls Uie time to
take It without delay.
Test  Ihe  Cows.
The dairy fanner should test his
cows for at least two reasons. First,
he will know which of his cows Is making liim the most money, and, second, it
will show him Uie difference lu llie actual producUvo capacities of cows and
will have a tendency to show blm tho
necessity of testing a cow's milk before he purchases her. If one farmer
feels that he cannot afford a tester of
his own, a number of neighbors can
combine and buy one ln partnership.
UnproHUble eews can be turned Into
beef, and others that are profitable can
be purchased to take their place"
MEN IN SKIRTS.
Taking: the World All Around They
Are In the Majority.
If there Is one thing presumably certain on this earth, In the opinion of
most of us, lt ls that skirts are essentially femiuine and that tbe special
feature of masculine attire is a bifurcated garment. But nothing ls further from the truth. To this day the
majority of the male element of the
human race, so far as lt wears clothes
at all, is skirted. And in past times,
not so very long ago, a gown down
to tbe feet was the correct wear of re
spectability lu civilized Europe.
An anecdote told of St. Louis, king
of France, illustrates this well. That
monarch was the stoutest of warriors,
a man whom no one knowing anything
about would dream of accusing of being effeminate, but on one occasion he
seriously offered to exchange costumes
with a richly dressed female relative
who had blamed him for wearing the
unpretentious garments he usually affected, which, she said, were unsuited
to a king. But she thought his gown
too plain for her, so declined tbe offer.
Now it ls Impossible to imnglne a
man like St. Louis even suggesting
such a thing lf the dress of men and
women had not been practically Identical except for war and hunting. Indeed, a glance at old pictures confirms
this Impression.—Grand Magazine.
TWO MAIDENS.
A   Silly  Little  Fable,   bnt  One  That
Points a Moral.
Once there Were two Maidens who
Sought to Catch a Nice Young Man,
who also Was a Good Thing. And lt
was a False Start ln the Eyes of the
Undlscerulng, for the One was Exceeding Fair to Look upon and Dressed
Stylishly, while the Other was Plain of
Countenance, and her Kat was Always
Showing through her Pompadour. The
Pretty Girl Smiled Sweetly on the Nice
Young Man, who was also a Good
Thing, and Talked to Him till She Dazzled him with her Beauty and charmed
Him with her Wit The Plain One
gazed Wonderlngly at him and Made
Him Talk to her of Divers Things,
while She listened, Entranced at bis
Wisdom and Learning. He took the
Pretty Girl out Biding end to tbe Theater and Bought her Candy and Flowers, and All the Knowing Ones said
Slie had struck a Winning Gait on the
Home Stretch, when One Day he Married tho Plain Girl and took Her on an
Automobile wedding Tour of Europe.
The Pretty Girl had Made him Very
much Pleased with Her, but tbe Plain
Girl had Gone her One Better and
Made him Very much More Pleased
with Himself.

JOHN PAUL JONES.
A  British View of the  Hero ef  the
Bonhomme   Richard.     *
John Paul, the Kirkcudbright market gardener's son, who elected to be
famous as Paul Jones, has long ceased
to be the Interesting personage he was
iu the eyes of the naval authorities of
the country when in command of a
rotten ex-East Indiaman known as the
Due de Duras and rechristened the
Bonhomme Richard he was a holy terror In tbe firth of Forth, and when he
bad engaged and captured a British
frigate In British waters after ono of
the most singular sea combats on record.
The some time "blackblrder" and
smuggler whom Uie Russian Catherine
decorated and advanced somewhat per
saltum to the grade of admiral was a
traitor of course in the view of tbe
British government, but none tbe less
n thorough seaman of quite unusual
talent and originality, with a bulldog
courage aud tenacity to match. The
Captain Jones, too, wbo sent Lady Selkirk back her plate with his compliments bad the Instincts of a gentleman.
More tban the other countries he
served America has recognised his merits.—Pall Mall Gazette.

ACTORS IN CHINA.
They Get High Salaries and Are Able
to  Live  In   Luxury.
China Is the actor's paradise. There
are thousands of actors iu the empire,
and the "top notchers" earn considerably more in proportion than actors even
In this country of high salaries. A native actor will earn, If he Is a flrst rate
man, as high as .$1,800 a year, and
while this money is Insignificant compared to our princely pay lists it will
procure comforts and luxuries to a
native in China that could not be duplicated here for fifty times the
amount. There is a national actors'
club with 30,000 life members, and
there is a special god ln the temples to
whom all good Chinese Thespians pray.
It Is very difficult to acquire the title
of "actor" ln China. The pupil is
obliged to study three years as a super, aud one more year ls required to
give him the finishing touch. The pupil must learn by heart a repertory of
about fifty different plays, and the rest
of his life Ib spent In acting these plays
without the slightest chance of ever being permitted to learn new oues. The
Idea Is that an "actor," as Buch, must
not condescend to learn, whleh is fitting only to an apprentice, but an actor may without Injury to bis dignity
teach worthy pupils wbat he himself
learned as a pupil.
Circassian Beauty.
Painting the eyes and eyelids ls considered u great aid to the fascination
of the female orbs. A Circassian to
be reully lovely must, in addition to
being very corpulent, have golden hair
and jet black lashes. Kohl is used by
the Persian and Armenian women to
lengthen tbelr eyes. The bazaar women
nnd nuutch girls of most eastern countries dye their linger nails with henna,
nnd where they wish to be thought
great ladies they allow their finger
nails to grow to an Immense length
aud keep them ln finely wrought gold
sheaths.
A Cartons Tale.
This curious tale of the Venerable
Bede Is told in the mediaeval "Golden
Legend:" One day, when he was old
aud blind, the desire to preach came
upon him. An attendant led him to a
spot where be faced a heap of stones,
and Bede, believing that a human audience was before him, delivered an eloquent sermon. At the end, It ls gravely recorded, the stones cried "Amen!"
no doubt to save Bede's feelings.
Headstrong, .
Mrs. Homer—Don't you think your
husband ls rather headBtrong for an invalid? Mrs. Neighbor—Yes, and the
doctor ls to blame for It too. Mrs. Homer—Indeed! And why, pray? Mrs.
Neighbor—He won't allow him to take
any nourishment but goats' milk.
An —vident Alternative.
"She married him in spite of great
opposition, didn't she?"
"Yes. If her marriage doesn't turn
out well she'll only have herself to
blame."
"Good gracious! Why? What's to
prevent her blaming: him?"

TWEED RING "aRAPT."
(no Hundred Millions Ita Dinset aa*
Indlreot Cost to Hew York.
The new courthouse was still far
from complete and miserably furnished, yet It had already resulted in
the neat outlay of $11,000,000, when
the most liberal estimate placed Its
value, finished and luxuriously furnished, at less tban $3,000,000.
A few Items will be sufficient to
show the scale upon whlcb tbe ring
had conducted Its financial policy:
Forty odd chairs and three tables
had a record value of $179,729.60.
A charge for repairing fixture*
through J. H. Keyser & Co., was $V
149,874.50.
Thermometers, $7,500.
Another charge for furniture, through
Ingersoll & Co., $240,504.03.
A single Item of stationery was set
down ut $188,405.61. What, ln heaven's
name, could the 01 cents have paid
for with stationery bought at ring
rates?
Then there were carpets, shades and
curtains, also supplied by that marvelous linn, Ingersoll & Co., at tbe fairly
comfortable figure of $075,534.44. Nor
must we overlook one G. S. Miller, a
carpenter, who was set down as having received $360,747.61 for one month's
work.
But Garvey, Andrew J. Garvcy, the
plasterer! Generations of plasterers
yet unborn will take off their hats to
his memory!   Two million eight liun-
«_<ru ana seventy thousand fontr Hundred and sixty-four dollars and six
cents had he earned at his humble
trade ln the brief period of nine
months.
It ls unnecessary to go further Into
the details of this monster and monstrous fraud; $5,063,246.83 had been
paid through the single "firm" of Ingersoll & Co.
Matthew J. O'Roarke, who since that
time made a careful study of the city's
finances, states that, counUng the vast
Issues of fraudulent bonds, the swindling of the city by wealthy Uix dodgers, by franchises and favors granted,
by blackmail and extortion, the total
amount of the city's loss through the
Tweed ring stands at not less thas
{200,000.000.
Ralph   Willi!,,   Emerson's   Stove.
Itulpli Waldo Emerson was a man of
rnre integrity and very particular
about small things. One day a new
cooking stove had been provided for
his house, and, ulUiough tbe stove come
very highly recommended, It proved
thoroughly unsatisfactory and most
provoking, ns It did everything but
what it wns expected to do. After
awhile the family was ln despair, and
some one suggested sending lt to auction.
"What!" exclaimed Emerson. "Transfer our own perplexity to another pair
of shoulders'. No, never, unless the
stove ir. labeled 'Imperfect'"
And so "Imperfect" It was labeled
and sold at a grout discount
TLooklng One In the Eyes,
There Is a venerable specimen of
proverbial philosophy which says tbat
the man wbo cannot look you In the
face is dishonest No other saying has
received greater currency. It strikes
the popular mind with axiomatic force,
and yet lt ls not a reliable test of character. Every confidence man who succeeds iu his calling has tbe steady gaze
of tbe Immaculate person. No person
who Is skilled ln Uie fine art of deception falls to take an obvious precaution
to Impress bis dupes. On the other
hand, many persons ot unquestionable
Integrity are "put out of countenance"
by mere sljyness. So morbidly wa Ills
trait developed In the case of Hawthorne, In bis earlier years at least, tbat
he would go out of his way to avoid
meetiug those who desired to converse
with him. It would be Impossible for
such u man to cash a forged check, to
borrow money from a bunk ou bogus
collateral.

without shrinking.

Sunlight Soap is better than other soaps,
but is best when used in the Sunlight way.
To appreciate the simplicity and ease of
washing with Sunlight Soap in the Sunlight
way you should fellow directions.
After rubbing on the soap, roll up each
piece, immerse in the water, and go away.
Sunlight Soap
will do its work in thirty to sixty minutes.
Your clothes will be cleaner and whiter than if washed
in the old'fashioned way with boiler and hard rubbing.
Equally good with hard or soft water.

Morality is tho harmony between tho
act and circumstance, It is tlie melody
of conduct. A wonderful statue is thu
melody of proportion. A great picture
is the melody of form and color. A
groat statue does not suggest labor; it
seems to have been created as a joy. A
great painting suggests uo weariness and
no effort; the greater, the easier it seems.
So a great and splendid life seems to be
without effort. There is iu it uo idea of
obligation, uo idea of responsibility or
of duty. The-idea of duty changes to a
kind of drudgery that which should be,
iu tbe perfect nmu, a perfect pleasure
—Robert G. Iugersoll.

The Provincial Legislature did uot
pass the Patent Medicine Bill before
adjourning, but has 1 old it over for a
year. Iu the meantime it is likely the
"other side" of tbo question will have
a chance to be heard before the Legislature takes up tho question ugitiu, aud
tho bill either modified or defeated.
Wheu we consider tlio millions of
people who livo remote from physicians
and the still greater number everywhere
who find it difficult under the most
favorable oironmstauoes to pay ordinary
liviug expenses, every reasonable man
will admit that there is a wido and
legitimate field for the- manufacture
and sale of niodiciues already prepared
for general use and easily obtainable at
all tiu.es aud everywhere, if the public
Comfort nnd welfare are to be regarded,

THE  BANK'S THE PLACE.
There is a story told of two girls
Both had saved a little money, nol
without some self sacrifice. ' One
day there arose on the horizon of the
commercial world a new and wonderful moiicy-makng mine, and shares
were sure to pay any one who invested, one hundred per cent. So
one of the girls decided that was the
quickest and surest way to make
money, and proposed to the other
girl that they become shareholders
and double their present wealth. The
second girl demurred, believing that
a bird in hand is worth two in the
bush.
And ithe natural result, .so well
were her savings invested, that she
had never a return of any kind. And
the other girt thought of her bank
account, and was satisfied with her
philosophy of life.

Everyone knows that for anything
to become known, it must be talked
about. For an article to become
popular its virtue must be made the
subject of a public announcement.
That is advertising! Consequ«ntly
if the survival of the fittest applies
to business principles as well as it
docs lo other walks of life, the better the advertising—the better the
publicity—the better the results.
Good results mean good business,
and good business is what every
merchant advertises for. If he did
not wish to excel in his particular
line, he would not take the trouble
to write an advertisement, much
more pay for the costly newspaper
and magazine space—British Advertiser.
