The Dascar sprang to his foot,
dazed, uncertain. Mannering waited
a second or two, then he said:
"Now, we'll tight it out English
The Lascar wus no mean boxer—he
had picked it up Irom his English
messmates—and with a flickering
smile he threw himself into position.
This second fight shnll not bo do-
scribed. Suffice it that the Lascar
was as a child in the hands of the
man who had carried all before him
with the gloves at Christchurch.
Aguin and again and Lascar came
on—let us give him his due—to receive the terrible punishment, but at
last a well-uiined blow from Mannering—who was now enjoying himself
amazingly—sent the Lascar to earth
with the sickening thud some ol us
know so well.
Mannering, panting and wiping the
sweat—it had flowed like water—
from his swollen lace, stood over
him for a moment in silence; then he
beckoned to the men.
"Take  him   to   the  hut,"   he  said.
Then, as they picked up the unconscious man, Mannering added, quite
"I think that settles it. If not, if
any of you would liko to try your
The polite and liberal offer was declined with thanks.
"That's all right, sir," said one
man, the best of the bad lot. "It
whs a squais and fair fight, and bli'
me if he ain't got what he deserves."
"Well.then," said Mannering. "You
understand that I'm master here—
someone has to bo, you know,—and
that if I lind any man pass the line
of that tree"—he pointed to one a
hundred yards from the Vernons' hut
They went off, bearing the Lascar,
and Mannering turned to Fleming,
who was clinging to his arm.
".Mannering! Mannering! You are
hurt! You are bleeding! Oh, Mannering, how—how nobly you fought!
It was wicked, very wicked, but—oh,
how—how I admire you for it! Uod
forgive me!"
Nina came from the hht, not running, but with a graceful swiftness.
Her face was still paler, but her eyes
were glowing under their dark lashes.
"Arc you—are you hurl?" she asked In a low voice, which sho was,
womnnfiilly, trying to keep steady.
"Thunks, not at all, or very littlo," said Mannering, going for his
"Oh, Mannering, how can you say
so!" exclaimed Fleming, reproach-
fillly. "He Is bndly cut. Look at
the blood! It is ol no use putting
your coat on, Mannering; you must
hftve that dreadful wound dressed."
,"It is too slight to bo called a
wound," said Mannering, casuqjly.
"Come to tbe hut," said Nina in
the tone a woman uses to a man
when sho means to be obeyed.
They wont to the Vernon's hut,
and she poured some water into a
tin and examined the knife slash.
"It is an awful cut," she said between her white, even teeth. "I—I
don't know  what to do."
'"Oh, we'll just wash it," said
Mannering, lightly, "lt will be all
rlfcht; it is nothing."
She .shuddered slightly as she bathed the flowing blood from the wound,
hut her hand was quite steady, and
it was only her beautiful lips that
"I—I am glad you did not kill
him, though—though at one moment
I almost wished— How strong you
must be!" she said in a low voice..
"I did not know you wero looking," said Mannering, reluctantly.
"I told you to shut the door."
"1 did—oh, I did!—but I looked between tho logs," sho said, with sudden meekness.
A shadow fell across the threshold
and tho Doctor entered. He was on
old man, bent and feeble, but at
that moment in a state of suppressed excitement which lent him fictitious strength and vigor.
"Nina, where is Mr. Mannering?
Oh, thero you are!" ho suid, peering^
at them under his whito and shaggy
browB. "I've got nows, great nows,
for you Mannering. What aro you
doing? What is the matter?" he
broke ofl to enquire.
Nina lifted her eyes trom her work.
"Mr. Mannering has been hurt—
tho men, father. Thoy wanted to
steal tho chest, and—and Mr. Mannering—"
"Eh? What? No matterl" ho Interrupted, impatiently. "Some quarrel, I suppose.     Let mc seo."
He put the girl aside gently and
looked at the cut.
"Kni.e, eh? Flesh wound only,
(live me a piece of linen. Tour it ofl
the sleeve of the shirt. Why did you
quarrol? _.t such a moment, when
you need all your strength and coolness. Mannering, Fleming," he continued, as he deftly stuunchud and
liiiniliiged the wound, "I havo made
the most extraordinary discovery. A
pin, Nina. Tut, tut, haven't you a
safety pin?" She found one and
gave it to him.    "Pin lt horo."
Her cool, soft fingers touched .Muri-
nering's arm gently, pityingly, tenderly.
"Thnt's right. You will do very
well. Next case. Eh? What? Thought
I wus in the ward. How did yon get
the hurt? No matter! Mannering,
seo horo!"
Ho turned to thn empty box whicll
served as a table and turned out tho
contents of his pocket upon  it.
"Look at those!" he exclaimed in
a tono of suppressed excitement.
"Look at them! Ho you know whut
they are?   Wait!    Shut the door!"
Nina closed the door and enme
back to the group; but though the
casual observer would have stiitl that
she. was looking nt the apparently extremely coiiiiuonpliu'o stones on tho
table, she was really looking, .lido-
ways,  at Mannering.
"See   what    they  are I"  said     the
Doctor, in a thick, tremulous whisper.    "Take up one of thein; examine
ilunneriojr   mechanically   took   UP
one ot the stones. He wus thinking
of the men, wondering how long they
would  remain quiescent,  amenable.
"Well?" demundod the Hot-tor, im-
palieiuly. llis rite was Hushed wilh
excitement us well as lever, and the
sweat stood In big drops on his
wrinkled forehead,
Mannering raised his brows dopro-
"They look like ordinary stones,
Doctor,"  he said.
Doctor Vernon uttered a cry of im-
piiiieiit contempt.
"Tut, man, where were you educated?" he retorted, Impatiently.
"They are gold quartz, Uold, gold,
I tell you! Hush!" lie glanced anxiously towards the door. "It's
gold. We un- rich—beyond the
dreams  of avarice!"
He uttered the deur old hackneyed
phrase hoarsely, unctuously.
"I found llieiu in the valley between (he ridge of hills, south by
southwest. There is gold there, 1
tell you, gold in immense quantities!
His bloodshot eyes peered from one
to Hie other with feverish excitement,
and his hanging under lip trembled
as if he had been struck by palsy.
Fleming und Mannering looked at
each other significantly. The glance
saitl,  "He is mad!"
"In immense quantities! H lies,
most of it, on the surface, in what
the miners call 'placers.' It is quite
easy to get. It is, 1 verily believe,

Fleming caught his breath, then,
without a word, went up the beach.
Mannering stood on the edge of
the sand and looked out seaward.
With the boat had gone their last

Fleming and Nina were now left Bole

imparted to the artist.
"Make the best presentment you can

a dozen will not come amiss. Let
tiiem be your premier cabinets, for I
would not curtail the expense."
Tbe photographer rubbed his hands
together ln a purring way.
"I will try to satisfy you, sir," he

The subject smiled as the artist
posed hlni.
"I will admit," he said, "that I desire to look my very best. A heart's
happiness as well as the disposal of a
goodly sum of ducats may rest upon
tho Impression this portrait makes."
"I fully comprehend," said the artist.
The siller glanced down at his vest.
"Seems rather dull aud tame to mo,"
ho said. "Ought to be brightened up
a little. Here, suppose you let me
wear that watch and chain of yours
Just as a cntcby eutward decoration."
So the smiling photographer passed
him the gold watch with Its heavy
chain, and the sitter donned tbem
with perceptible pleasure.
"That'll go fine with the rest of the
makeup," he said. And a moment or
two later, after the photographer had
stepped out to get a dry plate or something, be returned to find that the
watch and chain had gone with the
rest of the makeup to parts unknown.

In Chesapeake bay, 125 miles south

may be depended upon during the summer season, Is the strange island of
Tangier, so completely Isolated from
the usual lines of travel that it hardly
seems possible that it cnn be a part of

you cun, an island nbout live miles
long aud three-fourths of a mile ln
width, with a population of nearly
1,500, where each house ls connected
with Chesnpenke buy by u tiny canal;
au island where the population has
built homes along one narrow street
but nine feet lu width, without sidewalks, roadbed or gutter; an island
where tlie women go nbout with bare
feet nnd calico gowns during the week
aud where the men leave for their work,
nt an early hour on Mouday moruiug
aud remain away until Saturday afternoon; nn Island where intoxicating liquors are not sold, where billiard rooms
and pool rooms nre unknown; an island
where oue physician and the minister
constitute the professional class; an Island where profanity ls punished by
fine; an island without a jail or lockup
and where religion is the rule and to
be outside ef the church is to be outside of the pale of the best society; an
Island where public cemeteries are unknown and where tbe dead of each
home are burled lu tbe front yard. If

The Term "Greenhorn."
The term "greenhorn" originated ln
this way: The pioneers of the west
were much giveu' to hunting deer. It
was a fact known to curly settlers that
when the horn of a fawn began to
grow thero was a ring of greeu hair
around the spot. It was considered a
disgraceful thing for a hunter to kill a
fuwu, a cruel uct, and the killing time
was regulated by the growth of the
horn. There was a sort of unwritten
law thnt no oue should kill a male
fawn before Its boru could be seen. A
person who wus so unthoughtful as to
kill a deer under The proper age was
called a "greenhorn." Ho was so
named because the young horn of ths
deer and the hair around It were still
green. The use ot the appellation
gradually spread until it was applied
to ull raw or Inexperienced youths or
persons easily Imposed upon.

The    Youngeat     Bandanien    In     New
York's Memorial Day Parade.
A brass band recruited from among
street waifs aud using Instruments belonging to tbe set that took tlie llrst
prize at the Centenulal exposition In
1870 was one of the most striking features of the Memorial day procession In
New York. The band ls a product of
the New York Juvenile asylum, and It
serves as a popular Illustration of the
manner In which that well known Institution trains these "dear, pathetic nobodies," as Oliver Wendell Holmes
once described them, to become useful
Tbe asylum, of course, encourages
tlie boys to follow their bent, and naturally those who have any musical aptitude are quick to seize the opportunity thnt Is denied to so many boys ln
the outside world who are commonly
supposed to be more fortunately situated. This organization of promising musicians come to New York on May 80
from Dobbs Ferry, where the asylum's
new home ls located on a 300 acre
farm. There the once homeless or
neglected boys receive not only the ordinary public school education, but a
thorough training ln the different
trades. They have plenty of time for
play, too, and, thauks to Evert Jansen
Wendell and other well known philanthropists, they are fully supplied with
paraphernalia for their games.
The same band that attracted so
much favorable attention ln New York
also serves to brighten the life at Dobbs
Ferry. In fact, there Is no suggestion
of unnecessary restraint at that delightful home—not even a fence around
tlie spacious grounds. In the fifty
yenrs of Its existence the asylum has
led many a boy toward the goal of success, and who knows but that ln tht
band clad ln cadet gray there ls ln the
bud some great leader or composer,
and lt ts also within the bounds of likelihood that from the pleasant workshops at Dobbs Ferry may come some
dny another Bell or another Edison,
for tho start ln life which the boys obtain there fits them for many callings
and opens many avenues to future usefulness.
2<:xtln_rnlalilnar   Burning   Gae  -Well.
The careless striking of a match at
a big gas well on tbe Johnstone lease
near Bartlesville Ignited the gas, which
burned a week before it could be extinguished.
Four large boilers were grouped
around the fiercely blazing torch, which
deafened all noises by the reverberations of the escaping gas. One kept a
stream of water playing on the ground
where the casing entered the earth, and
from the others three Inch streams
were directed at the top of the tubing
with the end In view of breaking the
flow, thus killing tbe blaze above.
This method failed, but another attempt with one end of the pipes turned directly up with the flow of gas
succeeded, and tbe blaze was smothered. However, the victory was short
lived, for within thirty minutes the
gas had caught again from the overheated tubing and ground and was
burning fiercely.
Then a dam was constructed about
the well so as to bold wnter, and a
heavy stream was turned Into lt. Tho
sieani again extinguished tbe flames,
and this time the accumulated water
kept them down.—Bartlesville Examiner.

his visit hs should take home with him
a complete outfit of the typical pearl
diver. "Good gracious, how could I
tug such a weight about with me?" hs
said. "Why, that will not be prohibitive," said his companion. "Here ls

a handful across the table. It consisted merely of a clip for the nostrils and

Useless Studies.
Professor Oliver Lodge, an English
educator, complains that the examples
given tn many school arithmetics are
of no practical value. "Many sums ln
compound multiplication and division,"
he says, "are of this character—acres,
roods and poles; drams, pennyweights
and scruples. Such sums are surely
unknown ln any actual business. They
may be called concrete examples, but
many of them are artificial, stupid and
depressing. A machine could be contrived to do thom, but It would be useless. When things like them are wanted, as they may be, in some simpler
form, by a housekeeper or shopkeeper
perhnpB, they are in practice dono by
tnblcs. This sort of stuff is neither
urlihmi'lle nor mathematics nor common sense. It Is sn opportunity for
wasting the precious learning time of
a child and disgusting him with study."

I- ^Israeli and Bile Father.
Lord Dufferin used to tell the following story about his mother and Disraeli:
My mother was among the flrst of
Disraeli's acquaintances to recognize
his great ability, and sbe saw a great
deal of him wheu at Mrs. Norton's,
wheu'he was a young man about town.
She did not seo very much of him
after he bad once entered upon his political career. Here, however, ls a little anecdote which ls very characteristic and amusing. My mother had a
great admiration for the "Curiosities of
Literature" and was anxious to mako
the acquaintance of Disraeli's father,
but there was a difficulty about this, as
at the moment he was not on good
terms with his father.
However, he appeared one day with
his father In tow. As soon as tbey
were both seated Disraeli turned
arouud and, looking nt bis father as lf
he were a piece of ornamental china,
said to my mother: "Madam, I have
brought you my father. I have become
reconciled to my father on two conditions. Tho flrst was that ho should
yome to see you and the second that he
'uld pay my debts."

Papyrus Books.
Early writers made use of lines er
cotton fabrics, of skins and eves of
scales ef fishes for writing. For a lesg
period papyrus was used, the books
being made ln rolls, being about one
aud one-half feet wide and sometimes
fifty fest long. Papyrus was a flag or
bulrush, growing eight or ten feet
high, found ln the marshes of Egypt;
from 'ts Inner pith the form of paper
calleV. papyrus was made. Papyrus
sheets were neatly Joined, attached to
a stick and rolled upon lt (whence we
have our word "volume," from the
Latin volvere, to roll). The titles
.were written on tags attached ta tbe
sticks or Inscribed on the outside ot
tbe rolls. The rolls were kept IA
round wooden boxes "resembling tin,
old fashioned bandboxes- and could
easily be carried about.
A woman needs a blood medicine
regularly just beeause she ls a woman. From maturity to middle life the
health and happiness of every woman depends upon her blood, Its richness and its regularity. If her blood
ls poor and watery, she Is weak and
languid, pale and nervous. If her
blood is Irregular she suffers untold
torture from headaches, backaches
and sldeaches, and other unspeakable
distress which only women know.
Some women have grown to expect
this suffering at regular Intervals,
and bear It in hopeless silence. But
they would escape the greater part of
it if they took a box or two of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills each time to
help them over' the critical period.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually
make now blood. They help a wo-
manjust when nature makesthe greatest demand upon her blood supply.
They have done this for thousands
of women throughout Canada—why
shouldn't they do that much for you?
Mrs. James Candy. 2.ri Edith avenue,
Toronto, saj^s: "t think Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills a medicine that, should be
taken regttlnrly by every woman In
tho land. I suffered gi'eatly from
thoso ailments that only a woman
knows. I had backaches and headaches, and a weary bearing down
pain. I was very irregular, and was
often forced to go to bod for two or
threo days nt, a time. I tried many
medicines, but. got nothing to belli
me until I began Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and they have given me new
health and relief from pain, and
made me regular. I cannot say how
thankful I am for what the medicine
bas done for nie, and I would urge fill
women who suffer as I did to try Dr
Williams'  Pink  Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the
greatest cure in all the wide world
for nil the weakness and backaches
of anaemia, all the heaviness nnd distress of indigestion, all the sharp
stabbing pains of neuralgia, rheumatism, lumbago nnd sciatica, and all
the other Ills that come from poor
weak, watery blood. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills make new blood with evory dose, and thus strikes right at.
the root of nearly every disease that
afflicts humanity. But remember that
the "just as good medicines" that
some druggists offer never cured anyone or anything. Insist upon the
genuine pills with the full name Dr
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People

Even the Gifted Sarah Slddona and
tha Brilliant Charlotte Cnahman
Were Not Equal to the Taak—Anna
Dickinson In the Part.
Although many of tbe cleverest actresses the world has known have essayed the part, they have, with few
exceptlous, fabed ln It.
Eyeu Sarah Siddons, probably tlie
greatest tragic actress of all time, was
a failure as Hamlet, largely owing tp
the nondescript nature of her garments,
which were neither masculine nor feminine and whlcn made lt almost Impossible to forget that ber Hamlet was S
woman and not a man, says Loudon
Charlotte Cushmau was perhaps'the
most brilliant player of male parts of
ber or, Indeed, of any other generation.
She was equally brilliant and convincing as Romeo, Cardinal Wolsey or
Claude Melnotte, but wben sbe mads
the crucial experiment of playing tne
melancholy Dane even sbe proved
unequal to the task. In fact, her Hamlet was bo badly received In Dublin
that Bhe there and then made up her
mind never to play tt again.
And yet her Romeo was such a trl-
umpu of acting that James Sheridan
Kuowles, the great dramatist and critic, was completely carried away by It
Of her acting of the passage where Romeo flings himself upon the ground,
"taking the measure of an unmade
grave," he says: "It was a scene of topmost passion, not simulated passion;
no such thing—real, palpably real. The
genuine heart storm was ou ln its wildest fullness of fury, and I listened and
gazed and held my breath, while my
blood ran hot and cold. I am sure lt
must have been the case with every
one in the house, but I was all ab-'
sorbed ln Romeo till a thunder of applause recalled me to myself."
And of her assumption of the difficult
part of Claude Melnotte ln "The Lady
of Lyons" Justin' McCarthy says: "I
have Been Claude Melnotte played by
mauy great actors, from'Macready to
Irving, but Miss Cushman eclipsed
tbem all. Sbe created for me the only
human, the only possible and the only
endurable Claude Melnotte I have ever
Miss Julia Seaman, a once popular
actress, was so severely criticised wben
she played Hamlet some years ago that
she turned round on her critics and assailed them ln a very vigorous manner.
The late Miss Marriott, who had one of
the most beautiful voices ever heard ou
any stage, was more fortunate, although it was one of her least successful assumptions, and ln the fifties an
American actress, Miss Percy Knowles,
made such sn unfortunate exhibition
of herself as the melancholy one that s
country manager actually Issued a notice warning hia patrons against going
to see ber.
Ellen Tree (Mrs. Charles Koan) was
the first to put on Hamlet's doublet
and hose; Mrs. Glover won, Edmund
Kcan's approval by her playing of the
part, and Mme. Sarah Bernhardt gave
a picturesque and clever rendering of
Hamlet, although it was not to be compared with many pf her brilliant assumptions.
Charlotte Crsmpton was noted for
her clever noting of masculine parts,
which would have been even more convincing lf sbe had not been such a tiny
woman. "There ls a woman," Mac-
ready once said, referring to her, "who
would startle the world lf she were but
two Inches taller." She was such a
magnificent swordswoman that few
men cared to try their skill against her
on the stage, and she was undoubtedly
a genius In her way, with a courage
commensurate with her skill.
She was one of tho finest personators
of Richard III. ever seen on tlie stage,
her Shylock was among the most brilliant pieces of acting ln ber day, and
she was almost equally clever as logo,
Romeo and Don Caesar de Bazan, and
yet when Charlotte Cramptou challenged criticism with Hamlet she failed as signally as her rival, Charlotte
Cushman, had done.
Probably the most successful of all
lady Hamlets was Anna Dickinson,
who mnde considerable reputation as
Macbeth and Claude Melnotte. "A
number of women have tried Hamlet,"
she said. "None, I believe, with any
success. Yet, ln my opinion, the character of Hamlet ls eminently suited for
a woman's capabilities. Hamlet was
very young—a mere college boy, ln
fact. Besides, s fine actress Is more
likely to bring out tbu wonderful womanlike delicacy of Hamlet's character than a very young actor." And she
supported her views by giving an attractive and clever rendering of the

A naturalist hns written to prove that
birds are not singers, but whistlers;
that ls to say, that tbe notes are produced through a tube—to be technical,
through the silt known as the glottis—
not by tbe help of vocal cords. But the
whole distinction Is beside the point.
Any one who has seen a bird singing
will have seen both the vibrations ln
his throat and the variations In the extent to whicll he opens and closes bis
beak or mandibles; nnd, given these accompaniments, together with the production of nn Inarticulate language,
whistling and singing become identical
terms suggesting a distinction. People
nre accustomed to the idea that only a
few species of birds, such ns the parrot nntl the jackdaw, cnn be taught,
but ln wild life nlmost nil birds are
mimics to some extent, nnd probably
more of them than people realize could

Sunlight Soap is better than other soaps,
but is best when use*d in the Sunlight way.
To appreciate the simplicity and ease of
washing with Sunlight Soap in the Sunlight
way you should follow 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.

Illiteracy  fjs   rightly   accounted   a
tragic   handicap   for   the   individual,
and  so grave a menace to the community,   that  millions   of  dollars   arc
annually     expended    on    the    public
school system in an effort to reduce
it  to the  lowest possible proportion.
Not   alone   generous   support   of  the
schools,  but  the multiplication  of li
braries testify to a general appreciation  of the  supreme necessity of an
ability to read, and opportunities for
its practice.    He who cannot read is
highly commiserated as one doomed
to  spend   his   life   in   darkness,   that
•' seriously  affects  his  development  in
' every   way.     Although   the   inability
'' to read is thus well nigh universally
I ■reOB't'nized   as  the   serious   evil   it  is,
a curious fact is that what is gained
at so tmicli  cost to the learner and
the public,   is  scantily  utilized.    The
point here made is not that the ma
jority,  or  even  a  fair-sized   minority
. of  those  who  learn to  read,   fail  to
. decvlop an interest in books, and be
come  well   read  in  the  best  of  the
world's   literature,  but   that  the   majority  of  the  literate  take  no  pains
whatever lo get at the truth or falsity
, of the printer's output, that they do
. most   largely   read.    Their   practice
, would   suggest   that    the   object   of
1 learning  to  read was to  blindly  fol-
; low  some newspaper leader, restrict-
j ing  the  acquisition of knowledge  as
I to daily events, both native and for-
, eign,  and  their significance,  to such
, news as the partisan editor elects to
j present.    As   a   result,   not   alone   is
1 the    individual    who    thus    circum-
. scribes   hi*  reading,  largely   ignorant
, of facts he should know if he wishes
I to be  considered  intelligent,   but  as
j in   the   modern   world   it  is   of   the
, greatest importance, especially in re
publics, that the population  shall be
. well  informed,  the  country  at  large
1 suffers in consequence of this illiter-
i ate reading public.    It is rarely that
; a person is found who reads the opposition   newspaper.    All   he  knows,
t, therefore,  of  men  and measures,  he
.. gleans   from   his  party   paper,   which
has an  object  in  biassing his  views.
This has been telling him, for exam-
, pie, for a decade or two, that a cer-
tain party has a monopoly of moral
ideals, and that the prosperity of the
, country is dependent upon a Chinese
. wall  tariff.    Never  has  the  man  of
, one    paper    studied  the  Republican
party's  doings    in    the    columns   of
■ Democratic press, or vice versa, nor
. attended political mass meetings of
1 the opposition, nor looked into the
. most elementary book on economics.
Instead of trying to substantiate the
, statements and opinions of the party
paper, he has accepted, without ques-
. lion, what was published, and did as
; he   was  told   precisely  as  though   he
were an illiterate bondman. This
1 blind faith in the party and_ the parti-
; tan paper, so discreditable to a lib-
, crate   freeman,  is  the  opportunity  of
■ the grafter, the unscrupulous trust
$ interests, the morally weak official,
: nnd the whole, horde of degenerates
^ who fatten on decent, but stupid peo-
s nie.   And so it comes about that the
partisan is at last rudely shaken in
his belief in the -.potlcss purity ot
his party candidates, and the lion-
-sty of its journai, by a succession
ji disgraceful scandals in the Na-
.ioiial and State affairs. The repre-
.ontattves of his party in the highest
uouse even are proven to be thieves
and blackmailers. It is all desperately shocking, quite as much so as
the conditions tnat partisan democracy brings about in the metropolis
and elsewhere. The rank and file of
both parties are neither grafters nor
blackmailers, nor do they with set
purpose offer opportunity for such
destructive practices, but the sad fact
is, they accomplish this deplorable
result, as surely as though they went
in deliberately to so disgrace their
country. The truth is no man is
qualified to vote who does not read
at least one good class opposition
paper as attentively as he does his
partisan one. If he will not do this,
he might as well be an illiterate for
all the good his ability to read,does
his country. And the scandals that
have disgraced national annals for
twoscore years will continue to disgrace us."

address follows, and was read by
Mrs.  Leitch:
Beloved   Commander:
I am honored in being chosen to
address you on this happy occasion.
There is need.for no words of mine
in which to express affection for, and
devotion to yourself on behalf of the
members of this Hive. The responsive note in your own heart must
bespeak it more forcibly than mere
words can convey the sentiment;
were further proof wanting, it will
be found in the unity and harmony in
which we have worked during these
past years, that have seemed to cement our friendship, and prove the
worth of your dear heart, to draw,
you nearer, and make you dearer
with each passing month, and prove
your unswerving devotion to duty;
to impress upon us the genuine interest you take in us individually and
collectively, and to make us keenly
alive to the fact, that to be a good
Maccabee is to be a better woman.
In acknowledgement of our appreciation of these sentiments which
you have done so much to awaken,
I am offering you on behalf of our
Hivet a small token,, which we beg
of you to accept with our earnest
allegiance,   and   warmest   love.
A Happy
to all!

A fact as significant as it is interesting is that the Imperial Library
In Tokio (Japan) reports that it hAS
little or no call for fiction Th; taste
of the patrons of the Library i« fot
books on science, medicine, mathematics, philosophy, commerce and
art. Any line of reading which promises to mak* them more efficient,
is popular with this most amazing
Japan's plan for subsidizing a
Japanese steamship line with nearly
?3,ooo,ooo a year, to develop ocean,
coast and river traffic in China will
oust Germany from second place in
the commerce of the Far East. Japan
will push trading possibilities in
China to the utmost. The two Countries arc natural traders with each
other, they stre-tfce nearest of neighbors, besides being nearer in sympathy than eitrier could possibly be
with Occidental traders. It is to be
hoped that buying and selling will
become honorable occupations w*h
the Japanese, so that the reproach
of being trade tricksters may no
longer  be applied  to them.
Whoever has patience and unim-
paired eyesight, may like to know
that the old-style cross-stitel
wrought upon the finest of silk can
vas, is the latest revival for certain
personal objects. Chief of these are
the sides of an opera or a purse
bag. This cross-stitch is wrought
with fine silks, whatever the require
colors may happen to be, and tin
c. ->vas is nl white silk. Exquisiti
waa -<rsc bag so worked, and rep
resenting a park scene with Watteai
figures and a portion of an old elm
tcau. The canvas has to be sewn on
four sides to four bands of cotton
muslin, and then entered into a smal
wooden frame, by a lacing through
eyelets worked into the muslin bands.
The canvas must also be very taut
to have-, the work executed smoothK
and evenly.
Quite the prettiest matinee jacket
may be made out of flowered or
pompadour ribbon, four to five inchc.
wide. There are many ribbon?
offered at sales that might be used
for this purpose with the greatest
success. The ribbons are made t
run in vertical lines and are joined
by having a lace insertion sewed be
tween in stripes, ft These jackets arc
short affairs, reaching to the hips
and have elbow sleeves. The collar-
less neck is given a lace finish. In
order not to buy an inch more lace
or ribbon than is required, first
make a model out of coarse muslin.
That done, take strips of paper the
width of the ribbon and fit them in
stripes down the fronts, the back,
and upon the sleeve. Draw a line
with a pencil on each side of the
paper strips. With a tape measure
go over the paper stripes to learn
how many yards of ribbon are needed
and measure for the insertion in like
manner to get the quantity, as well
as the width. Ribbons selling from
ten to fifteen cents per yard, and
laces from five to ten, put such a
inclrct within the reach of very
slender  purses.
