"'Should I, really? That's strange;
for I know nothing whatever about
cooking. My father"—sho kept her
voice steady—"and I lived alone. He
had given up practice for Borne years
and amused himself with scicntilic research. He used to write articles
and things for tbo magazines and
reviews, and I acted as his amanuensis; so that I hnd no time for what
is culled domestic duties. If I had
only known that I should have needed a knowledge of cooking and, oh,
so many other things that other women can dof"
"You havo soon picked them up,"
ho said, promptly. "It is wonderful
bow quickly you havo learned to do
things; by a kind t)f instinct. It'a
the intelligence of the culture mind.
It's always eusy for an educated person to learn the duties of a servant.
That's why lady helps should be such
a success."
"But are they usually?" sho asked
us she took her plate and cut him a
slice of bread. "I've always been given
to understand that thu lady help
does everything but help. She presides tit the table, over an underdone
or overdone joint and a watery pudding, and is much aggrieved if she
is asked to do anything iu the shapo
of work."
Mannering nodded and kopt tho ball
"Yes; something liko the ordinary
landlady. I used to livo in lodgings, and the landlady—she was too
liberal with her h's and said she was
the daughter of a clergyman—left
tho cooking to an infant of sixteen
whose notions of-a meal would make
a Red Indian quail. Until I was
landed hero I scarcely knew, away
from home or at a restaurant, what
a decent dinner meant. You make
coffee splendidly. It Is quite a surprise to find that it doesn't taste
like baked horse beans."
"I am sorry to sny that the coffee
is giving out." sho said, gravely.
"Oh, well,'' he responded, cheerfully, "we- can manage without it—
though I'm sorry for your sake. It's
supposed to bo bad for the nerves."
Nina smiled. "I've almost forgotten that I had any." she said.
"You have gone through so much."
he commented, sagely. "There is nothing half so good for nerves us real
down trouble and danger and right
down hard work."
As he spoke lie drew his chair to
the fire and took out his old briar
pipe, then remembered that ho hatl
nothing with which to till it; and,
after a loving look at it and a sigh,
replaced it in his pocket. But Nina,
upon whom no action or word of
his was lost, took a packet from her
pocket and held it out to him.
"You've no tobacco. I wonder—of
course, It won't—but I wonder whether this would do? I found some
leaves- on the edge of the plantation, and thev looked so liko tobacco leaves that I dried them In the
sun, just on the chance—"
He. took tho packet, smelt it, filled
bis 'pipe and lit it, und, after a
draw or two, looked at her gratefully.
"It's first rate!" he said, with a
profound sigh. "It was splendid of
you to think of it. Intellect again."
She laughed, but as she cleared tho
things away her eyes went to him
whero he sat smoking cnjoyably, and
there was a strangely happy glance
in them.
There was silence for a time; both
wero thinking of the dead; but Mannering would not refer to them—
would not say a word to voico their
sense of solitude.
"To-morrow I intend exploring the
islund as far ao I can," he suid with
an assumed casuulness. "1 shall be
away ell day. You won't mind?"
"No," she said. "Why should I?
There is no one here but ourselves."
It was out—had slipped out at last
.—and she went pale, then red; but
she turned away swiftly, and he did
not notice her embarrassment.
"I thought you might get lonely,"
ho said, simply. "I have not been so
far away before. Perhaps 1 ought to
have made the exploration beforo
this. I shall set up another signal
on the.north, though 1 am convinced
that no ships poss that way. I remember—it's wonderful how things
come into your memory when you
think they have gone forever!—seeing
theso islands—or what I think wore
them—in a map at home."
"Yes," sho said, mecbunically; for
she was wondering where his "home"
was. Should sho ask him? It was
haunting and burdensome; this complete ignorance of his past history,
_ his very iduntity. But beforo sho
could find courugo to put her question ho went on:
"I bollevo tho niainlund of Australia Is behind us, so to speak, but
I'm not sure." lie sighed us If Impatient of his Ignorance. "It Is Just

- He had boen communing with hlm-
■Belf as much.as talking to her; and
as ho suddenly reolised that ho was
talking aloud, ho glanced ut her penitently. But there wus no sign of
grief or pain on the beautiful face,
and she said, quite calmly:
"There is nothing for it    but   patience."
"Yes," he sighed.
Sho moved about in tho quiet,
soothing way somo women—bless
theml—possess nuturally, then, presently, she looked round as If everything wero done, and snid, quietly:
"ls thoro anything else 1 can do—
anything olso you want? If not, I will
"No, thank you!" he replied as
quietly. Ho rose and opened the do(,r
for her, as if they were parting for
the night in a house in Mayfuir, and,
drawing her cloak round her, sho
passed him.
"Oood night," she said, and "Good
flight,"  ho responded.
Ho waited by the open door until
ho had seen her enter thu hut, then
ho closed the door ond Jay down by
tha firo. He could not sleep that
night in the hut bo and Fleming had
occupied; it was too full of memories of his fellow-castaway and friend.
When ho roso next morning and
went to tbo door ho saw Nina running toward tho men's hut. Sho
•topped short at sight of   him   and
seemed    to  hesitate;   then,     after    a
pause, sho came on.
She was panting a littlo and the
color was coining and going on her
face, fresh as tho morning Itself and
as  beautiful.
"You gave me a fright!" she said,
as if explaining. "I went to the hut
to call you and could not make you
"I slept here," he said. "Why,
where did you think I had gone?"
She dropped her eyes. "I didn't
know. I thought you might be ill,"
she said, rather coldly. "Breakfast
is ready. I'll bring it."
Ilo had his morning swim in tho
sunlit bay, and returned to find the
breakfast laid. But she did not sit
down with him.
'1 havo had mine," she said, as
sbe gave him sonic really well-cooked
fish and the remains of tho duck.
"There is some lunch to take with
you.   Dinner at   seven,   I  suppose?"
'Yes; I'll be back by thun. You always remember to wind up your
watch? That's right."
"1 shall want somo more birds today,"  she said.
"I'll get them before I go," ho responded.   "Is there anything else?"
"No, thanks. I'll leave you now. I
am very busy turning out my hut."
After he had finished his breakfast—it was not so pleasant a meal
as that of last night; he missed her
—ho took his gun ond went down to
tho piece of marsh where ho usually
found the ducks. It went to his
heart to shoot them, for, being unacquainted With the tender mercies of
men, they were friendly and unafraid, and, being a sportsman, he
had to frighten them on to the wind
before ho fired.
lie got a couple of brace and went
up to her hut with them. It was
the first time he had approached her
quarters since Fleming's death. Sho
was standing outside In the midst of
a fairly good imitation of a "spring
clean," and she paused in her task
and regarded his approach with a
touch of color in her cheeks and a
certain coldness in  her eyes.
"Sorry to interrupt you," ho said
in a matter-of-fact way. "Hero are
the  ducks."
"Thank you," she said. "Will you
put them on the ground, please?
Oh"—as he obeyed her and was walking away—"what shull I do witb
these?" pointing to a small heap of
stones. "They aro the stones father
Mannering nodded.
"Yes; they are gold." he said, regarding thein With indifference. Then
he smiled. "Cold! It's strange to
think that if we were within reach
of the world and civilization you
would ho rieh—rich 'beyond tho
dreams of avarice.' "
"We, you mean," she corrected him,
with  a  smile.
Then the blood burnt in hor veins,
for it flashed upon ber that he would
think she hnd reineniliej-etl and referred to the fact that they wore man
and wife and held things in common.
But Mannering, witb a man's dullness,  took  her  literally.
"No," he said. "You forget that
your father found it, und that you
are his daughter und  heiress."
"Oh—yes," _itie suid, casually.
"Well, whut shall I do with them?
They are iu the way and make my
room, untidy."
"Pitch them anywhere," he replied.
"They are of no use, unless we
should be found und rescued. Put
them in a heap—oh, better bury
them! I'll get the spado."
"Oh, don't trouble!" she said;
"I'll put thom somewhere."
"I wish they were coul." sa.d Mannering, eyeing them thoughtfully and
"Or potatoes or pots of marmalade
or—oh, fifty other things I want!"
she sighed.
"Never mind," he said, soothingly
"Perhaps 1 shall find some coal; the
Marmalade Is hopeless, I'm uf, aid.
Hood morning. Can I help you move
the heavy things?"
"Oh, no, no, thanks!" she leturned
quickly—it seemed to him nervously,
as if she did not wish bim to enter
her hut—and, with another nod, hs
shouldered  his gun  and   went off.
Nina finished her own "spring
clean" and, the strain being relaxed,
begun   to  feel   lonely.
It was perhaps for tbo best, in
some respects, that be should go off
for the day: lt lessened the cinbar-
riissiiient of tho situation; but she
thought rather wistfully of the hours
she must spend  In solitude.
And to pass I hem she resolved to
rearrange his own but. Sleeping In
the men's was not nearly so romfort-
ulile fur hiin, and—and besides he
was further away from ber thun ln
the cabin he nntl Flaming had occupied; and though she was not nervous, she was conscious tbat she liked
to have him within call.
She went tlown to tho hut after
nwhile. ami entered It shyly and hesitatingly. Her woman's sense of neatness and order wus shocked by tho
untidiness of the place, and sho set
to work to clear nntl rearrange lt.
While she was folding and {lacking
Fleming's few belonging and putting
them in a box, she came across tho
kind of diary "log" ho had kept on
board the Alpine. She sat down and
turned its pnges and found several
references to  herself and    Mannering.
One of them caught her attention,
and sho pondered over. It. It ran
thus: -
"The fellow-passengers I like best
are a Miss Vernon—her Christian
name may be Christina; she is called
Nina by her father. She is a very
lovely and lovable girl. Her father, a
doctor, has come out for change and
rest. He is a savant of the old
school, a learned and an absent-
minded man. Sho is, I am sure, as
good afi she is beautiful, and her
light-heartedness and amiability have
done much to make the voyage so
far a delightful one. I walk and talk
with her frequently. How happy will
be the man who is fortunate enough
to win her love!"
Nina blushed at this assertion, and
looked up from the diary with a sigh.
Thon she read on:
"The other is a man named Vane
Mannering. I have 'mado friends'
with him, though it was rather difficult to do so at first, for though he
is by no means morose, he is somewhat taciturn and reserved. He is a
gentleman and distinguished looking
—which some gentlemen are not. ln
addition to great physical advantages, ho has a remarkably pleasant
voico, deep and musical. He does not
'mix' with the otber passengers, and
is given to walking and sitting by
himself. I consider myself favored
by his liking, if the word is not too
strong; at any rato, he docs not
slum mc, and is oven willing to stroll
about tho deck and chat. If I were a
novelist I would construct a romance
round him; it seems to me that he is
just tho kind of man who may have
had what tho lady writers call 'a
past.' I don't mean a guilty past;
no, there is something ubout him
which impresses nie with a sense of
his worthiness. I fancy—how one indulges idle fancies on board o' ship!
—that he has had a recent trouble;
may have lost tho woman he loved
—really, I must take to fiction—or,
perhaps, lost a fortune. From a word
or two ho let slip, I gathered that he
was poor and was going out to earn
his living. Tho moro I see of him the
more I like Mannering. I have—I hope
in an inoffensive way—endeavored to
make him and Miss Nina friends, but
he is shy in his grave way and he is
disinclined for the society of ladies—
anyway, he avoids all of them,
which makes mo think that his
trouble may be connected with one
of the gentler sex. Notwithstanding
all the efforts of the women on
board to 'draw him out of his shell,'
he resists their blandishments."
Nina frowned thoughtfully over
this. Yes, she remembered, Mannering had seemed to avoid her and the
other ladies.
The journal waB continued to the
day of Fleming's death, and his
anxiety on her account, his plan of
a marriage with Mannering, even the
reasons for it, were set down.
"I had hard work to induce him to
take the course I myself pressed on
him," Nina read; "and oven after he
had agreed to the marriage, and I
hnd gained Miss Nina's consent, ho
partly executed an idea of escape for
her and me in order to avoid the
ceremony. I respect his scruples. Alas
they will have to yield to inexorable
Fate! I am dying! I must moke them
man and wife beforo I go. It must be
so, for her sake, for the sttko of her
future. Heaven will, I feel, give me
strength to perform tho ceremony,
though it nicy not vouchsafe me sufficient to set it down horo. I hope
I am acting for the best for both of
them. If not, as Mannering said, may
God  forgrivo   mof"
It was the last entry; he did not
livo to make another; and Nina's
eyes, as she bent over the book, filled with tears. And her heart, too,
was filled with bitterness. It tortured her pride to read, in black
and white, Mannering's objection to,
dislike of,  the marriage.
But she put the book at the bottom of tho box ln which sho had
placed Fleming's things, and set to
work vigorously. Thero were very
few articles belonging to Mannering.
Ho who had thought of so many
necessary things for the rest had,
apparently, ignored his own comfort.
There were a few spare clothes which
quickly, timidly, and, of course, without examination, she folded und laid
aside, with a strange sense of shyness. It seemed to her as if he
might resent her interference; but
surely it was her duty to "tidy" the
place und ittuko it comfortable. it
was the least she could do for him
who did so much for her.
She did oway with Fleming's
"bed," and altered the arrangement
of the rough furniture so as to give
the room as different on aspect as
possible, and she completed her work
by putting on the table a bunch of
gloriously-colored flowers in un
empty bottle. Whilo she was making
up tho posy her eyes cought tho
signet ring which Mannering had
placed on her finger for a wedding
ring. Bo sure it was not the first
timo she had looked at it; indeed, it
seemed to her that even in hor sleep
sho had been conscious ol its presence. But now, after reading the
parugraph ln Fleming's diary, sho
viewed it with a feeling of revolt
against tho Fate that had placed lt
there; and, obeying a sudden impulse,
she took it off and slipped it in her
'iho moment sho had dono so she
was vaguely sorry; she missed tho
thing; her finger looked bare and
"unclad" without it. But she was
too proud to put it on again. No,
it should not remind him overy time
that he glanced at her hand of tho
unwelcoino tic which bound him to
It was late before Mannering came
slowly over the hill and towards tbo
saloon—as Nina had decided to call
the men's hut—and, as she looked at
him. she saw that ho was very tired.
Now she hnd on her best skirt—tho
one she had been mending when
Fleming came to propose tho marriage to her. Sho hatl tacked a bit
of dark blue ribbon undor her collar
and had done her wonderful hair
with more care than she had taken
sinco the wreck.
Her freshness and the general effect of theso attempts at adornment
—he was too much of a lucre man to
toko in tho details—Struck Mannering,  and ho snid apologetically:
"If you'll wait a moment, I'll go
to the Btrcam and have a wush anil
tidy up."
"Woll, don't be long, please," she
said. "I have been experimenting
with a soup, and I'm anxious and
nervous about it; and nothing sooner puts a cook into a bud temper
than keeping the dinner wuiting."
Ho cume back very quickly and
sank into his chnlr with the sigh of

A purely vegetable Pill. — Parmelee's Vegetable Pills are compounded
from roots, herbs and solid extracts
of known virtue ln the treatment of
liver and kidney complaints and in
giving tone to the system whether
enfeebled by overwork or deranged
through excesses In living. They require no testimonial. Their excellent
qualities are well known to all who
have used them, and they commend
themselves to dyspeptics and those
subject to biliousness who are in
quest of a beneficial medicine.
Until yesterday I did not really
know what a chlnook meant. One
blew our train westward from Card
ston to Raymond. Then, turning
northward, we had to take that mighty wind on the left side of the car.
Its yells were audible when the train
was running. When we stopped we
could hear the pelting sand and gravel particles on ear sides as well as
windows. A whirlwind flew In every
time a door was opened. The double
window glass did not exclude strong
draughts. But the wonder was not a
gale on the prairie, but the mildness
of that gale. Tho temperature was
about 53 degrees. The quality of the
blast was such that while It would
of course have chilled a warm human
body, It would have as certainly
warmed a man who had been long in
a cool cellar or refrigerator car. One
could understand how speedily such a
wind would clear snow away. Almost
any time of the year New England
bas colder winds, and yesterday was
the first dav of November. The Chinook is, Lethbridgers say, always as
mild, or milder, winter and summer
alike. At Cardston I saw a record for
the winter of 1887, by Mr- Barker, the
English "gentleman sheep rancheA"
and oldest inhabitant. One night in
February the thermometer stood 20
degrees below zero at 10 p.m. At 12
p.m. the reading was 52 degrees
above. A Chinook had arrived meantime.—W. Thomson, in Manitoba

Minard's   Liniment   Cures    Diptheria
Can  Only  Be Cured Through  tho
Bad backs—aching backs—como
from bad kidneys. Bad kidneys come
from bad blood. Bad blood clogs the
kidneys with poisonous impurities
that breed deadly diseases- And the
flrst sign of that fatal trouble is a
dull,   dragging  pain   in   the   back.
Neglect It, and you will soon have
the coated tongue, tho pasty skin,
the peevish temper, the swollen
ankles, the dark-rimmed eyes, and
all the other signs of deadly kidney
disease. Plasters and liniments can
never cure you. Kidney pills and
backache pills only touch the symptoms—they do not cure. You must
get right down to the root nnd
cause of the trouble in the blood—
and no medicine in the world can do
this so surely as Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, because they actually make
new blood. This strong, rich new
blood sweeps the kidneys clean,
drives out the poisonous acids, and
heals the deadly inflammation. That
Is the only way to rid yourself of
your backache and have strong, sound
kidneys. Mrs. Paul St. Onge, wife
of a well known contractor at St.
Alexis des Monts, Que., says:— "I
suffered for upwards of six years
from kidney trouble. I had dull,
aching pains across the loins, and at.
times could hardly go about. I lost
flesh, had dark rims below my eyes,
and grew more wretched every day-
I was treated by different doctors,
but with no apparent result. I dls-
palred of regaining my health, and
was becoming a burden to my family. I was In a deplorable condition
when one of my friends advised me
to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I
began taking them, and after using
three of four boxes, I began to feel
better. I continued the treatment
for nearly three months, when every
symptom of the trouble had vanished
and I was again a well woman. I
feel justified In saying I believe Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills saved my life."
Now blood — strong, pure, rich
blood which Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
make, cures not only kidney trouble
but a host of other ailments, such as
anaemia, Indigestion, rheumatism,
erysipelas, St- Vitus dance, locomotor
ataxia, paralysis, and the secret
ailments women do not like to
talk about, even to their doctor.
But only the genuine pills can bring
health and strength, and these have
the full name "Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People " printed on the
wrapper around each box. If your
dealer does not keep the genuine pills

The country "stopping place" Is a
time honored custom, without which
the traveling public could not travel!
But lt is time for the "stopping place"
to become something better than it
usually Is. Throughout the prairie
west you find the most excruciating
humor (without mirth- in the countryside. You can't laugh until after, but
when you do laugh It is contagious.
At one place In the prairie west an
enterprising Chinaman offers "refreshment for man and beaste." He
cooks and serves his own concoctions
trotting amiably around his own tables and eagerly asking his guests will
they take "lice soup"? The chink
knows no "r," but substitutes an "1"
to one's loss of appetite.
A more ambitious hostelry on the
main line of the C. P. R., whore a
Chinaman presides over the place,
presented a menu card to his patrons
with "Coakanut Flitters"! Needless
to add, the printer had not yet arrived.
A young lady (?) waitress In one
of the very new town hotels, being
asked by a guest of the house, "Are
these beans canned, or are they
grown here?" received the terse reply, "Search me!" It Is quite an ordinary thing to find coatless vis-a-vis
at some tables d'hote, but. the latest
style exists at L r. on the C- N. R„
where a shirt-sleeved waiter one day
last week, taking his orders after
leave the dining room, once more
presented a tousled head through a
crack in the door   and    yelled   out:

wanted; I forglt!" He was a new

How Officials Who Arrange For the
Assizes Ara Paid.
The Toronto Star reoently gave an
account of the officials and their pay
ln York County and Assize Courts. As
they aro typical of those elsewhere
throughout the Province of Ontario, the
account, which ls as follows, ls Interesting:
"Oyez!   Oyez!   Oyez!
"All persons having anything to do
before the Court of the General Sessions of the Peace draw near and give
your attendance.
"God save the King!"
The familiar proclamation rolled
forth over the court and subsided In
echoes, and the court  was In session.
That formality costs tbo Province
30 cents every time Court Crier Taylor utters lt in the courts at City Hall.
"Oyez! Oyez! Oyez!
"All persons having anything to do
beforo the Court of General Sessions
of the Peace depart henca and give
your attendance to-morrow.
"God savo the King!"
That, too, costs the Province 80
Handling the Book: giving tho oath
to witnesses, and announcing their
names nets Mr. Taylor 10 cents per wlt-
hess. He also gets 51 a day for his
attendanco at court nnd a small salary
as factotum to Judge Winchester.
There are many fees paid at the
courts at City Hall. The sheriffs are
paid $5 a day for attendance at court
and $2 for every prisoner arraigned.
For summoning 80 petit Jurors and 13
grand Jurors the sheriffs get 13 cents
a mile and 25 cents for each man
eer'ed. This amounts to a tidy sum
each year and lt would total up fully
a third more but for a llitle economy
practiced. The one panel ls utilized for
both civil and criminal assizes. This
usually works out without a hitch, but
a couple of times the vagaries of court
procedure havo kept the sheriff on tenter hooks, lest the panel should be exhausted. On one day two years ago
four Juries were out at once from the
two courts. Fortunately it was too
Iato to open other cases, else the panel
would most assuredly have petered out
before the selection wds made.
On another occasion three criminal
Assize juries were out at once. The
cases were short, but the evidence was
contradictory. At 7.45 His Honor, the
late Judge McDougall, directed that
enquiries be mode as to the probability
of an early verdict. At every jury room
the answer was "We cannot agree."
"Lock them up," said Judgo McDougall.
At 8 o'clock, Just before he departed
for home, another Inquiry was Instituted.
"Wo have agreed," said the foreman
of the first Jury.
The jurymen were brought into court,
but before they had boen discharged
the second jury sent out word that
they had agreed. Hard upon the heels
of this announcement came a similar
announcement from the third Jury
Every one of those three Juries convicted their man and they all made up
their minds ln less than fifteen minutes.
There ar© a lot of fee paid officials
ln County Courts. County Crown Attorney DraytotLgets J10 a case whether
It lasts ten minutes or ten days. On
the face of things this looks like a
bonanza, for very few of-the cases last
beyond half a day, but thero are cases
which cause tbo Crown Attorney to
work for sweat shop wages. This
spring tho Gods'on arson case ran
through twelve days. In addition to
theso fees Mr. Droyton ls enttlled to

Constables,on duty at the doors and

In addition they are paid a fee for serving summonses and making arrests,

other courts are paid a salary, but In

Lord Leicester, the patriarch of the
English peerage, lays dying and prob-

this letter appears ln print, writes the
Marquise de Fontenoy. For he waa
born considerably more tban four score
years ago of a father who was 70 years
of age at the time, and who had been
born as far back as in the reign of
King Oeorge II., seventeen years before
either the first Napoleon or the great
Duke of Wellington came Into the
world. The youngest of old Lord Leicester's eighteen children was born
j eleven years ago, when his father was
71, and at ths time of the little fellow's
birth, no less than 141 years divided
him from the birth of his paternal
grandfather, Thomas William Coke, the
first of the Holkham earls of Leicester
of tho present creation.
Lord Leicester's eldest son and heir,
who now will succeed to tha earldom
and to ths possession of the famous
Holkham Hall estate, has been known
until now aa Viscount Cum, and as an
officer of the Scots Guards has seen a
good deal of active service In Egypt,
In the Soudan, and ln South Africa.
He ls married to a charming Irish woman, Alice White, daughter of Lord
Annaly, and haa three grown up sons
and a couple of daughters. In spite of
this, their mother ls still a wonderfully young looking woman, with a tall
graceful figure, typically Irish eyes,
and ruddy brown hair. She ls one of
the most clever ban'olsts ln English
society and excels as a skater, having
won all sorts of trophies on the loe.
Although the Leicester peerage is of
modern creation, having been granted
ln tha flrst year of the reign of Queen
Victoria, yet the Coke family ls an ancient on efl Sir Edward Coke having
been Lord Chief Justice of England
under Queen Elizabeth and King James
I This great-great-grandson of this
Lord Chief Justice, Sir Thomas Coke,
was Postmaster-General ln tho reign of
King George _., and was created Viscount Coke of Holkham and Earl of
Leicester. Dying without lssua Holkham passed Into the possession of his
sister's son, Welrman Roberts, who assumed the surname and arms of his
uncle. It was his eldest son, who for
the greater part of his life was known
from one end of England to the other
as "Mr. Coke of Holkham." who at the
age of 90 was oreated by Queen Victoria Earl of Leicester and Viscount
Holkham, which comprises   over 60,-
000 aores, ls one of tbe most beautiful
places ln Norfolkshlre, situated ln that
part of the County which ls the nearest spot on the English shores to Denmark, which has often led Lord Leicester to Insist that King Christian was
his next door neighbor. The hall ls a
massive building, built something over
200 years ago, and of stately proportions. The entrance hall, some seventy
feet long by fifty feet wide, is of variegated alabaster, of tones at once cool
and rich. The settees and chairs with
which the hall ls partly furnished light

the various apartments. The latter are
rich with the masterpieces of the greatest painters ef Europe. Holbein, Van
Dyck, Titian, Raphael, Rubens, Reynolds, Rosa, and Gainsborough aro all
represented on tho walls, while among
the treasures contained in the library
ls a flrst edition copy of the "Novum
Organum," presented by its author, tho
great Sir Francis Bacon, to his rival,
Chief Justice Coke; an illuminated manuscript of the "DIvlna Commedla" ef
the fourteenth century, which belonged
to Dante himself; a Cicero of the ninth
oentury from the abbey of Cluny, which
was used by Abelard; the original manuscript of Leonardo da Vinci's book on
hydraulics, written ln a delicate hand,

that lt can only bo read by holding It
to a mirror; and a manuscript Llvy
presented by Cosmo dl Medici to Alfonso of Naples, tho leaves of which
are reported to bo Impregnated with a
subtle and deadly poison. I may add
that on the title pago of Bacon's presentation copy of his "Novum Organum," Chief Justice Coke, the recipient,
has written the following caustic comment:

Its old time monkish possessors to contain the bones of St. Thomas, St. James,

But It is useless to attempt any d»
tailed account of the ariistlc and historic treasures of Holkham Hall, and
1 will only sdd that ln spite of their
priceless character—they may be regarded as of national Impormnco—they
havo nover been insured, so firm Is the
belief of Ihe Cokes In the fireproof
character of Holkham Hall.

After an exciting contest, the uu-
licipal election in South Vancouver
vis decided by the electors on Sat-
rday last by the election of Mr. C.
F. Foreman as Reeve by a majority
of 23 over Mr. Geo. Rae, and by
electing an entire new Council. The
returns   were  as  follows:
Reeve—C. F. Foreman, 249; George
Rae, 226;  spoiled, 7.
Ward 1—A. E. Almas, 77; Richard
Wilson, 45; spoiled, 3.
Ward 2—W. J. Dickinson, 37; H. J.
Ballson, 33; R. Frost, 19;. spoiled, I.
Ward 3—Donald Burgess, 41; Samuel Taylor, 38; spoiled, 1.
Ward 4—Wm. Middler, 60; W. A.
Pound, 58; spoiled, 2.
Ward 5—W. N. Townsend, 45; H.
Mole, 21;  spoiled, 3.
Monday forenoon the old Council
met, and after confirming the minutes
and passing accounts, passed out of
office. Reeve Geo. Rae presided,
Councillors Ballson, Mole and Wilson
being present.
Soon after 2 o'clock p. m., the newly elected Reeve, C. F. Foreman, and
Councillors arrived at the Municipal
Hall, accompanied by reporters.
When the formalities of taking office were over, the new Reeve and
Council proceeded to business.
Reeve Foreman said he thought it
would be advisable to stop all general work not contracted for, so tbat
the Works Committee might have an
opportunity of going over the Municipality and making themselves acquainted with what work was going
on. He thought Councillor Town-
send would bear him out that on
Granville street and Magee road there
was rock being put on that was a
mere waste of money. The Council
aimed at economy.- They wanted to
do work that was necessary. They
did not want to stop any contract
work, nor work on ditches that were
overflowing, nor on roads that were
impassable. They were there to look
after the interests of the Municipality,
to see that money spent was spent
judiciously. On the motion of Councillor Dickinson, seconded by Councillor Almas, it was agreed "that all
municipal work now going on hy. day
labor be cancelled for the time being."
Reeve Foreman announced his selection of committees, which was
adopted. The committees are as follows:
Board of Works—Councillor W. N.
Townsend, chairman; Councillors Almas, Burgess, Dickinson and Middler.
Health Committee—Councillor W.
J. Dickinson, chairman; Councillors
Almas, Burgess, Middler and Town-
Finance Committee—Councillor W.
Middler, chairman; Councillors Almas
and Burgess.
Councillor Dickinson, in moving
that Mr. W. G. Walker be retained
for the ensuing year as Municipal
Clerk, spoke of the 'high esteem ill
which Mr. Walker was held by the
Municipality and of his methodical
and executive ability. Councillor Middler seconded the motion of appointment, which was unanimously carried.
Applications for Health Officer, Road
Foreman, Cou.UiUes, Ruck Crusher
Foreman, Road Tax Collector are lo le
calleu for by advertisement
The Council decided to act with
Burnaby in the matter of securing
water rights on Seymour creek, and
Reeve Foreman was delegated to go
to New Westminster witih the municipal solicitor on the 25th and attend
to all transactions therewith.
On Feb. 26th, at 10 a. m., the Court
of Revision will sit to hear all complaints re assessments.
Reeve Foreman was delegated to
join Reeve Tuttle of Richmond in interviewing Hon. R. G. Macpherson in
regard to the North Arm bridge and
other matters.
The  Board of Works  arranged to
meet at 1:30 on Friday, and after in
specting  the  rock   crushing   plant  to
make a tour of as much of the municipality as  time  would  permit.
The regular meetings of the Council will remain as formerly, viz.: the
third Saturday of each month at 1:30
p. m.
Accounts were passed as recommended by the retiring Council.
Councillor Dickinson remarked that
it had been stated in pre-election oratory that a surplus remained to the
credit of the Council. When the accounts were paid there would be D
deficit. The deficit referred to amounts
to $I7S*,9-
The Council will meet this afternoon at 1:30 in special session.
The new Rei-ve and Councillors
would be pleased to see as many of
the citizens of the Municipality attend the Council meetings as desire
to attend and listen to the proceedings.

The bolero jacket is again creeping
into popularity. The princess gowns
have brought this bit of frippery into
fashion, it being a fitting accompaniment for the princess gown.
The long semi-fitted coat, particularly in fancy mixtures, contimes to
be popular in misses' suits. But the
indications are that the hip box coat
will be the coat for spring wear.
The Japanese effect in embroidery
will be very popular for waist patterns. It shows a solid embroidery
design which will be used in preference to the openwork embroidery effect.
Several lines of Brussels laces,
chiefly in the princess effects, (have
lately been seen in the market. From
all indications tht Brussels laces will
be worn quite extensively this spring.
Laundered collars are expected to
come quite strongly to the front this
season and are now being worn considerably with narrow four-in-hand
ties, in both plain and embroidered
From all appearances the ribbon
departments will fare well the coming
season. Ribbons are to be used for
nearly everything. The knife-plaited
ribbon is a favorite for dress trimmings.
There is a new wing collar on the
market having an overlapping- tab.
Tlie extremely pointed effects are not
meeting with favor, but the more
conservative styles take quite well
with the trade.
The continued popularity of the
princess style in coats and the increasing favor shown it as the season
advances will undoubtedly have much
to do in the continuance of these effects in the spring.
Many attractive effects in washable
skirts made of mercerized cbambrays
and gitijrliamr, are being shown. The
pongee coloring is greatly liked, and
llie gray petticoats in the washable
materials are also good. The embroidered edges are to be used to a
considerable extent.

is not unusual as the dress goods run

Your Troubles Are Your Own
Though tho clouds msy be dark today,
And the way be dreary with pain,
Don't aot the weakest coward's part—
Don't say your life is in vain.
Look always on Life's brightest side,
And find eaoh cloud's silver lining;
Dou't pass all your sorrow franght days
In silly useless repining.
The world cares not for your troubles,
You may weep and it will not see;
But "Laltgh and tbe world laughs with
'Twili cheer some lime heart, it may be.
Don't indict yonr woes on yonr friends.
Against life afcd God's decrees rail;
And then, in yonr life's lexicon,
There will be no such word as Fall.
