Outside  the  shouting,   singing  nnd
huzzas   gathered   strength   and   volume until the sound became n hoarse
roar.  Chirk was uneasy.  He had overheard much of a threatening character
during the siege.  The Creole's were, he
..new, justly exasperated, nnd even his
own men had  been showing a  spirit
which might easily he fanned Into n
dangerous   flame   of   vengeance.    He
was very anxious to have the formalities of taking possession of the  fort
over with, so that he could the bettor
control his forces.   Sending for Beverley,  he assigned him to the duty  of
hauling down the British Hag and running up that of Virginia.   It was an
honor of no doubtful sort, which under
different   circumstances   would   have
made the lieutenant's heart glow.   As
it was lie proceeded without any sense
of pride nr pleasure, moving ns a mere
machine In performing an act significant beyond any other done west of
the mountains ln the great struggle
for American  Independence nml  (he
control of American territory.
Hamilton stood a little way from Urn
foot of the tall flagpole, his arms folded  on  his  breast,   his  chin  slightly
drawn In, his brows contracted, gazing steadily nt Beverley while be was
untying the halyard, which had been
wound around the pole's base about
three   feet   above  the   ground,     i'he
American troops In the fort were disposed so Irs to "form three sides of a
hollow RQunro, facing inward.    Omie
,7a«on, serving as tlio ornamental extreme of one line, was conspicuous for
his   outlandish   garb   and   uninilitary
bearing.   The silence Inside the stockade offered a strong contrast to the
tremendous   roar   of   voices   outside.
Clark made n signal, and nt the tap ef
a drum Beverley shook the ropes loose
and begun to lower the British colors.
Slowly the bright emblem of earth's
rulglftleSt nation crept down in token
of the fact that a handful of back.
woodsmen had won an empire by a
splendid stroke of pure heroism.    Bev
erley detached the Hag nnd, saluting,
handed It to Colonel Clark.    Hamilton's breast heaved and hi., iron jaws
tightened their pressure until tlie lines
of his cheeks were deep furrows of
Just then there was a birdlike movement, a winglike rustle, and a light figure flitted swiftly across the area. All
eyes were turned upon it. Hamilton
recoiled, as pale as death, half lifting
his hands as if to ward off a deadly
blow, and then a gay Hag was Hung
out over his head. lie. saw before
him tbe girl he had shot, but her beautiful face was not waxen now, nor was
It cold or lifeless. The rich red blood
was strong uniler tho browned yet delicate akin, the eyes were bright npil
brave, the cherry lips, slightly apart,
gave a glimpse of pearl white teeth,
and the dimples—those roguish dimples
—twinkled sweetly.
Colonel Clark looked on in nmaze-
ruont and in spite of himself In nd-
lfljrntion. He did not understand. The
sudden Incident had bewildered hiin.
but his virile nature was instantly and
Wholly charmed. Something like a
breath of violetB shook the tenderest
chords of his heart.'
Alice stood /Irmly, a slatuo of trl-
_ umph, her right arm outstretched,
holding the flag high above Hamilton's
Dead, and close by her side the liille
hunchback Jean was posed in his most
characteristic attitude, gazing nt the
banner which he himself hud stolen
and kept hidden for Alice's sake and
because he loved lt.
Thero was a dead silence for some
moments, during wliich Hamilton's
fnce showed that he was ready to collapse. Then the keen voice of Oncle
Jazon broke forth)
"Vive Zhorzh Vnsinton! Vhc la Imn-
niere d'Aliee Roussillon!"
Ho sprang (q the middle of the area
and flung his old cap high In air, with a
shrlJI war whonp.
"Hist it, h'lat it: Hisses la banplore
de Mile. Alice Itousslllon I Voila, ijuo
e'est giorieiise, cotto banulere lal Hist
it, hist it!"
He was dancing wilh n rickety liveliness, his goatish legs nnd shriveled
body giving him Ihe look of an emaciated satyr.
Clark had been told by some of his
Creole officers the story of how Alice
raised the Hag when Ilelin took the
fort and how she snatched It from
lliiiiiillnn's hand, as It were, and would
not give it Dp when he demanded It.
Tho whole situation pretty boou began
Io explain Itself, as he saw what Alice
was doing. Then he hoard her say to
Hamilton while she slowly swayed the
rippling Hag hack and forth!
"I said, as you will remember, M. le
Convenient', that when yon next should
See this Hag I should wave it over ynur
head. Well, iouk. I am wining it.
Vive In republlquol Vive George
Washington! What do you (liink of it,
M. lo Gouverncur?"
The poor little hunchback Jem look
off his cap and tossed it iu rhythmical
"emphasis, keeping time to her words.
And  now   from  behind the hollow
square enme a mighty voice:
;-.   "Cost mol,  Gnspard Housslllon; me
vVoici, messieurs!"
;•; There was a spirit in the nlr which
'caught from Alice a thrill of romantic
Icuergy.   The men In the ranks and the
.officers In front of them felt a wave of
.-.irresistible  sympathy   sweep   through
Slhcir hearts.   Her picturesque beauty,
l.i-r line temper, the Illness of the Incident lo the occasion, had nn instantn-
"npous  power which   moved  nil   men
"Raise her flag!   Run up the young
jMndy'H ling!" some one shouted.    And
• then every voice seemed to echo tho
' words.   Clark was n young man of no-
lie type, iii whoso veins throbbed tho
warm, chivalrous  lilood of (he enva-
jliers.   a waft nf the suddenly prevailing Influence bore hiin also t]ulto off his
feet.   lie turned to I'ovcrh'y and said:
• "Tm II!    It will have a great effect
It IS II BOOd IdCIt.   (let the Vini"" '   •
flag and her permission] to run It up."
Before ho finished speaking—indeed
at the first glance—he.saw that Beverley, like Hamilton, was white as a dead
man. and at the same time it came to
Ida memory flint his young friend had
confided to him during the awful march
through the prairie wilderness a love
story about this very Alice Roussillon.
In Ihe worry and stress of the sulise-
' quent struggle ho had  forgotten  (he
! tender basis upon which Beverley had
; rested his exciue for leaving Vlncennes.
i Now it all reappeared In Justification
of what was going on.   11 touched the
' 1'Oltiantlc cnri' of his southern nature.
"1 say, Lieutenant Beverley," he repeated, "beg the young lady's permission to usi  her Mag upon this glorious
occasion, or shall 1 do II for ynu."
There  were   no   miracles  In  those
brave days, nnd tho strain of life with
its terrible realities braced nil men and
t women to meet sudden explosions nf
surprise, whether of good or had ef-
; feet,  with  admiral   ■   equipoise,   but
Beverley's trial, it  must be admitted,
was extraordinary. Still he braced himself quickly nud his whole expression
changed when Clark moved to go to
\ Alice.  For he realized now that it was
Indeed Alice In flesh and blood, stand-
, ing  there,  tho  center  of  admiration,
| lilling the nlr with her fine magnetism
1 find   crowning n  great  triumph  with
■ her beauty. He gave her n glad, Hashing smile, ns if lie had Just discovered
■ lier, and walked straight to her, his
! hands extended. She was not looking
! toward him, but she saw him and

I vantage, for she had known for some
I hours of his presence In Vincennes and
I had prepared herself to meet him courageously and with maidenly reserve.
There is no safety, however, where
love lurks. Neither Beverley nor Alice
was ns much agitated as Ilamillon, yet
they both forgot, what he remembered,
that a hundred grim frontier soldiers
were looking on. Hamilton had his personal and official dignity to sustain,
and he fairly did it under what a pressure of humiliating and surprising circumstances we cnn fully comprehend.
Not so with the two young people,
standing as it wero in a suddenly bestowed anil incomparable happiness on
tlie verge of a new life, each to the oth- '
er nn unexpected, unhoped for resurrection from the dead. To them there
was no universe save the illimitable
expanse of their love. In that moment
of meeting all that they had Buffered
on account of love wits transfused and
poured forth, a glowing libation for
love's sake, a flood before which all
barriers broke.

men, among tliem Captains Bowman
and Worthlngton.
After the thunderous crash came a
momentary silence, which embraced
both the people within the fort and the
wild crowd outside. Then the rush
and noise wero Indescribable. Even
(.'lark gave way to excitement, losing
command of himself anil of course of
his iven. There was n stampede toward (he main gale by one wing of the
troops in the hollow square. They literally ran over Iieveiiey nnd Alice,
flinging tliem opart and jostling thein
hither and yonder without mercy. Of
course the turmoil quickly subsided.
Clark and Beverley got hold of themselves and sang out their peremptory
orders Willi excellent effect. It was

"Where Is Alice — Miss Roussillon?
Where did Miss Roussillon go?" Iieveiiey exclaimed, staring around like a

"D'know," said Oncle Jazon, resuming his habitual expression of droll dignity. "She shot npast mo jes' ns thet

"Lieutenant Beverley," roared Clark
in his most commanding tone, "go to

The order was instantly obeyed, but
Beverley had relapsed. Once more his
soul groped in darkness while the
whole of Ids life seemed unreal, n wavering, misty, hollow dream. And yet
his military duty was all real enough.

it was a great relief to her in some
way, for a sudden recognition of (he
boldness cf her action in the little scene
Just ended came over her nnd bewildered her. An Impulse sent her running nwny from the spot where. It
seemed to her, sho had invited public

Jee.ing and hooting of rude men who
had seen her unmnldcnly forwardness.
Willi a burning face she Hew to the
postern and slipped out, once more biking the course which had become so familiar In her feet. She did not slacken
her speed until she reached the Hoarder cabin, where she had made her

pistol hull struck her. i'he little domicile "as quite empty of Its household,

"The fort Is blown up!" she cried,
gesticulating In every direction nt once,
her pellte figure comically dilated with
the Importance of her statement. "A

She pounced Info Alice's anus, still

"No, of course not; you didn't have a

"But think, Adiienue, only think ot
tlio awful story they told—that he was

paid Long Hulr for killing him and
bringing back his scalp! Ob, dear, just

"Well, I'd be willing to think and believe anything In (lie world If Rene
would come back," said Adrienne, her
face, now uncovered, showing pitiful
lines of suffering. "Oh, Alice, Alice,
nnd he never, never will come!"
Alice exhausted every device to cheer,
encourage and comfort her. Adrienne
had brai so good to hor when she lay
recovering from (he shock of Hamilton's pistol bullet, which, although lt
came near killing her, made no serious
wound-only a bruise, in fact. It was

the door. He was in search of nindame,
bis wife, whom he had not yet seen.
He gathered the two girls In his
mighty arms, tousling them with rough
(endernoss. Alice returned his nffec-
tionatc embrace nnd told him where to
find Mme. Roussillon, who was with
Dame Godere, probably at her house.
"Nobody killed," he said, in answer
to Alice's inquiry about tbo catastrophe at the fort. "Somo of 'em hurt nnd
burnt a little. Great big scare about
nearly nothing. Ziff! my children, you
Bhould hnvo scon mo quiet things. I
put out my hands this way—coinmc ca

went home."
His gestures lndientod that he had
borne back an army with open bands.
Then he chucked Adrienne under the
chin with his linger and added iu his
soflest voice:
"I saw somebody's lover tho other
day over yonder in the Indian village.
He spoke to mo about somebody—eh,
mn petKc, que voulez-vous dire?"
"Oh, Papa Housslllon, wo were Just'

"Have you seen him?"
"I saw you, you Hide minx, Jumping
inlo a man's arms right under the eyes
of a whole garrison! Bah! I could not
believe it was my little Alice!"
He let go n grand guffnw which
seemed to shako the cabin's walls. Alice blushed cherry red. Adrienne, too
bashful to inquire nbout Rene, was
trembling with anxiely. The truth
wns not In Gnspnrd Roussillon just
then, or if-It was It stayed In hlin, for
he had not seen Rone de Ronville. It
was his generous desire to please and
to appear opulent of knowledge and
sympathy that made him speak. He

why not give her at least a delicious
foretaste? Surely, when a thing was

"There, now, what did I tell you?"
cried Alice when the big man was gone.
"I told you Rone would,come. They

As soon as ho snw Alice lie frowned
and begun to shake his head, but sho
only laughed and, linltntlng his hypo-
crltlrnl scowl, yet fringing lt with a
twinkle of merry lines nnd dimples,
pointed a taper linger at hlin and exclaimed:
"You hnd, bad man! Why did you

saucy mouth.
"Somelhlng or odicr seems to have

"Yes, Father Beret; yes, I know, nnd
I nm ashamed. My heart shrinks when

smiling that warm, glod smile nnd
holding out his nrii\s—ah, when I saw
nil that—when I knew for sure that he
was not dead, I, why, father—I Just
had to.   I couldn't help lt."
Father Beret laughed In spite of himself, but quickly niniinged to resumo
bis severe countenance.
"Tn, tn!" he exclaimed, "it was a
bold tblng for a little girl to do."
"So it was, so It was. But It was nlso

"But what In llie world nre you bilking nbout?" Interposed Adiienue. Evidently they were discussing a most ln- '
terestlng matter of which she know

dramatic nccount of the whole scone.
"Ah; liirr'n Dion,!" exclaimed the petite brunette after she had heard the

previous day, had given strict orders

Both Helm nnd Beverley were at

straight down through the cold, slill

on the veranda, where they walked
back and forth, making fair exchange
of (ho exciting experiences which had
befallen them during their long separation. Between tlie linos of these mutual recitals sweet, fresh echoes of the
old, old story went from heart to heart,
an nmoobnonn love bout liko that of

forth in the blooming Muytiine woods.
Bolh Captain Helm nnd M. Roussillon were delighted to hear of Long
Hair's capture and certain fate, but
neither of tbem regarded the news ns

She was so decidedly petite that even
When she drew her figure to its greatest
height the assumption of dignity waa
laughable. Rut her'eyes sparkled dangerously as she faced the bellboy.
The bellboy was Impressed. He eyed
the door as If meditadng escape beforo
Bhe proceeded to stronger inetliods.
"Now, see%bere,"'she. exclaimed belligerently, "this Is the third note I have
written to die office, nnd I want a re-
~ply tbls time."
' "If you would go down to the desk,"
the bellboy Insinuated apologetically,
"Mr. Parker"—
"No, I will not go down to (he desk."
iM^bs Hallowny Interrupted decidedly.
"That head clerk linker, or Whatever
name he minivers to, shall come up hen*
or I will know die reason why."
The bellboy departed promptly. "And,
by the wny," she called after him, "just
hustle along some telegraph blanks on
your way back. I have a few things to
say to my father and some of hl.
friends concerning the lack of accommodations at the Great Fastern."
"Oh, Belle, Belle," wailed Mrs. Hub
lowny, Whose ample form had collapsed In one corner of a red plush sofa,
"how can you make such u disturbance? Now, If your father was only
here. But the two of lis nlone, without
a protector!" And she rolled her eyes
"Protector, fiddlesticks!" said the energetic Miss Halloway. "Have you no
spirit, mother?" She began to pace tho
floor excitedly. "Would you to treated
as a nobody—you, the wife of Thomas
P. Halloway?  Consider your position."
Mrs. Halloway doubtless considered
her position—she wiis absolutely ut tho
mercy of her daughter's scathing
tongue; therefore she maintained a discreet alienee.
"Tbey must be taught tb'e^deforence
due to us, the Hnllownys of Chicago,"
said the girl. She was very youug and
possessed of the follies as well as the
graces of youth.
The bellboy now reappeared, holding
cut a handful ot telegraph blanks like
a yellow flag of truce. "Mr. Barker,"
he averred, "he snys—he's coming."
Miss Halloway seized upon (he
blanks nnd flung herself Into a chnlr
beside the writing table. , "There will
probably be ample lime (o get off (he ]
telegrams before he comes. Things
don't quickstep nt the Great Eastern."
"But. Belle," Mrs. Halloway protested after tho bellboy had closed the door
In reverential fashion, "had you' not

"Mr. Parker," her daughter Interrupted superciliously. "Is a'hotel clerk,

She dashed off a telegram and rend It
aloud reflectively:

"I think that will make things hot for
(he Great Eastern," Bhe said triumphantly. She did not hear tke knock ut
the door nor Its noiseless opening. Her
mother's voice startled hor, "Belle, here
Is Mr. Parker, but remember"—
Mrs. Hallowny's voice trailed off into
a deprecating silence. Miss Halloway
Ftrnlghteued up iu hor chair with the
laudable pride of a Judge about to eon-
fer sentence.
"Mr. Parker," she said Impressively,
"I have culled yon hpre to complain of
the treatment to which We have been
subjected by this hotel." She began deliberately enough, but the words soon
tumbled over each other In hor vehemence. "How dare you," she cried,
"hoiv dare you put US Into this stuffy

when we"have nlwnyB been accustomed
(o an eighteen dollar suit? Do you
know who we are—the llnllow'nys of
Chicago? Is not our money ns good ns
or better than other people's?"
The clerk remuiiiiHl silent. And now

gaze of his brown eyes,

In tho cool depths of the brown eyes as

Ills lone wns couiieoiifl. but tho girl
felt Ihe sling of underlying reproof. It
wns n new experience for her. All her
twenty yenrs had not discovered a person who Bhould dare to cross her. The
grent T. r. Halloway himself lacked
the necessary courage, or, rather, he
openly encouraged her willfulness us a
relncarnntlon of his own Indomitable
spirit. As for Mrs. Hnllowny, she wns
always a mlnuB quantity, on .such occasions r.s demanded firmness. She
preferred to be comfortably seated and
wring her hands gently, - Tears camo
easily nnd In nowise Interfered wltn
her heart notion or gradual Increase of

Now she looked- entrentlngly at her
daughter nnd murmured, "Oh, Belle,

Miss Hnllowny did not hear. Her
World seemed falling about ber cars.
For the first time the shameful helplessness of her sex overcame her. But

Food and Their Filth.
In the small Island of Crete leprosy
ls shockingly prevalent. The Cretans
have themselves to thank for this state
of affairs. The houses may be pretty
and whitewashed on the outside, but
within the filth is fearful. And the
food tbey eat Is just what encourages
leprosy. The Greek forbids meat about
200 days out of tho year, so as good
Christians they must live on salt fish,
which ls not Improved by Its long
Journey from northern seas to southern
heat The olive oil is so plentiful—
they export 20,000 tons each year—that
they use it to excess, even adding it to
the milk of a rice pudding. But the
crowning evil ls pork, the favorite fare
of the Cretans on days when the
church allows them to eat meat. The
leper is not cut oil' here as he Is In the
FIJI islnnds or at the Cape. Outside
each village may be seen a little white
house called the "leprochorlon." Here
the lepers live. Their cstntes, lf they
have any, are administered for them
by friends, and any ono pas, !ng by the
door may speak to them. If the sufferers be poor the state provides each
day a loaf of bread, ond the charity
of passersby adds the luxuries. ■
Bow  th*  Drama  nourished  In  th*
Tlm* of Elisabeth.
The great plays of Mar'owe, Shakespeare and Jonson were performed by
actors In Elizabethan dress in front of
a curtain, usually in daylight, on a little stage partly occupied by the gallants of the period, with their pages
nnd tobacco pipes. There was no fashionable actress, no orchestra, no limelight, yet the drama was more popular than churchgoing and held Its own
even with such gentle sports as bull
baiting nnd "wiping of tbe bljjid
beare." The little that we know of
the actors shows them, with the exception of Burbage and Nathaniel Field, to
have been very ordinary workaday
people, with empty pockets and domestic affections and other modern characteristics. Yet the protests of the Purl-
tans, (be avaricious records of the
censor nnd the continual erection of
new theaters in spite of the solemn
threats of the city fathers aro evidence
enough of the marvelous popularity to
which the art attained In that "spa-
clous timo" of playhouses most remarkable for lack of space.—London

As the people learn to realise how
much the general health depends on
keeping the kidneys right, and how
many diseases aro the direct result of
bad kidney action, every verified curo
of a severe kidney disease is received
with interest.
For that reason the case of A. W.

198J Mutual Street this city, is well-
worthy of attention. Mr. llolman
had Diabetes. Now he is a well man.
Dodd's Kidney Pills cured iu. Asked
concerning his case, Mr.' llolman
"■Yes, I had Diabetes for six yearn.
I tried all kinds of remedies, but to
no use. My attention was called to
Dodd's Kidney Pills by an advertisement and I began to uso thein. I
only usod six boxes when I was completely cured."
As it is conceded that what will
euro Diabetes will cure any Kidney
Disease it must be admitted that
Dodd's Kidney Pills will curo any
Kidney Disease.

Cat, la a Bombardment.
A lndy who was iu Port Arthur during the bombardments by Admiral Togo's fleet thus describes the curious
effect produced on cats by the cannonade: "I was nt my window during
each bombardment by the Japs, but
only through the day, because, at night
I did not dure stir out of bed. In
front of mo there was a little roof on
which flvo or six eats of the neighbor,
hood collected. Each timo there wns
a bombardment the" eats duly arrived,
and,, having observed them, I on the
second occasion proceeded to watch
them. With my family we passed the
hours looking at them. At each gunshot ths cats arched their backs and
stiffened their legs and seemed both
terrified and furious. Then when a
hlsBlng shell arrived lt gave the signal
for n frightful battle. Thoy jumped
at each other, raging like tigers, ami
seemed to hold each other responsible
for what was taking place. The effect
was so comical that we could not help
laughing, although the occasion did
not Inspire gnycty. After having
fought, the cats retired for awhile, ns
though bewildered, but as soon as the
bombardment began again they went
through (lie snme business. Knell time
lt was always the same."

robbed and left wounded and helpless
by the wayside. As lie lay fhcro various persona passed him, but none offered to assist him. Presently, however, a poor Saiiuu'itan came by and,
taking pity on tho wounded man's
plight, helped him on his mule mid
took hlin to nn inn, where he ordered
food nnd drink and raiment for the
man, directing the Innkeeper to send
the bill to bim. "And dis nm a true

The   Cnpe   Sable    Horsefly    of   the

A dreadful pest of llie lower Florida
swamps is the Cape Sable horsefly,
Specimens measure nn inch and a quarter in length, Their bite draws blood
liko the thrust of a knife. Imagine
a swarm of them darting around one
like so many humming birds! I'oi'tu-
natt'Iy thoy are not. at least early In
die season, particularly inclined to attack mun. The only domestic iiiiliiuil

mule, and even his lough hide requires

a suit of armor when outdoors, One

struck off into the Interior to visit n

tho animal, lt presented a truly re-
iiiiii'ktible appearance, clad in a suit of
burlap thut would havo afforded complete p.olectlon, save Hint ibe legs of
the "trousers" had been slit down, as
the animal could hardly have been Induced to put thein on. So the Haps
hung dangling about the legs, the cars
projected above, and Iho calm eyes
gazed out through the loopholes, surveying the swarm of (lies and the
stranger. Wo left bim lied to a palm

Were Great Sufferers From Kidney Disease
and Pains in the Back—Mow
Unite in Praise of
Dr. Chase'sKidney-Liver Pills
Those who aro best acquainted
with the merits of Ur. Chase's
Kidney-Liver l'ills do not wonder at
their immense popularity as a family
In thousands of cases they havo
cured whero physicians und ordinary
medicines huve failed. This is tho
test by which Ihey have been proven.
Hero is a letter wo have just received  Irom  Prince Edward  Island.
Miss Kate lloyle, lot 1, post office,
T. 10. I., states:—"About three years
ago my fnther was seized with a severe form of kidney disease, which
caused him much Buffering, ns well us
anxiety lest the ailment should become chronic dr prove fatal. We Immediately obtained Dr. Cbuse's
Kidnoy-I.lver Pills, nnd he began at
onco to improve under this treatment,   the   symptoms gradually  dis
appearing, until he l,ocame quite well
again. Sinco then we always keep
these pills in the house for use in the
Case of sickness of this kind.
"For some timo I suffered from
pains in the small of the, back and
accompanying ills, and though I was-
treated by a doctor at considerable
expense, 1 could obtain no lasting
benefit until I used Dr. Chaso's Kidney-Liver Pills, which seemed to bo
exactly suited to my ailment. Father

Poets'  Oplnlnns ot Kneh  Other.
A good story nbout Drowning and
Tennyson Is lo be found In the diary
of tho Right Hon. Sir Mountstunrt
Grant Duff. Drowning referred readily
to the charge nf obscurity in bis poetry.
"He once told me," says Sir Mountstunrt Grant Duff, "after repealing n
story Wordsworth had told him illustrating his own si range want of humor
and wit, that Wordsworth, after all,
wns unjust to himself, for Unit on hearing of Browning's engagement to Miss
Barrett he had said, 'Well, I suppose
they understand each other, although
nobody understands them!'"
Tennyson's opinion of Drowning (nnd,
Incidentally, of himself) l» shown In his
remark tbnt "Browning Is devoted to
music nnd knows n grent denl nbout lt,
but there Is no injislc lu his verse. I
know nothing nhuiit music nnd don't
care for it In the least, but my verse is
full of music."
in rending Milton's I.ycidas aloud,
says Sir Mnmilsluart Grant Duff, Tennyson would slop at the line,
And,   oh. yo dolphins,  wnft   the •inplcsa
with the comment that this was "the
only bad line Milton ever wrote."
The Island of Jersey.
The police court of St. Heller, the
principal town of the Island of Jersey,
Is remarkable in several respects. First,
the proceedings nre nlways opened with
prayer; second, it frequently happens
that after prayer there Is no more
business, and every ono goes home.
There is so lillle crime committed In
the Island thut the police force (twenty
strong) is kept up only for visitors. The
beautiful carving in oak which forms
the rostrum if this court is the work
of a lndy named C'oxedge, n resident
of the island. The dock Is remarkable
for lis spaciousness nnd comfort. The
authorities are very lenient with their
prisoners, who nre kept here, for court
nnd station nre under one roof. In
the words of the genial old turnkey.
"When we gets 'em brought In drunk
during the dny, If they behave well we
lets 'em out nt night." Every "bobby"
ls obliged to know the Psalms. II'b nil

Are you growing more attractive as you
advance in life?
"Given a healthy body," says Dr. R. V.
Pierce, llie special*
ist iu wonum's disease-,   of   PurTalo,
N. Y., "and a
healthy mind, and
everyone can culti-
vale and enjoy happiness."
We must eat
pro perl y and di-
[.est well to be
beautiful. It is a
fact thai nny form
of dyspepsia may
in a few d:iys transform a clear, while
skin into a mass of
pimples and black
spots.     A beautiful
woman has the
beauty of her stomach.
Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical
Discovery maintains a person's nutrition hy enabling one
to cat, retain, digest and assimilate the
proper nutritious food. It overcomes the
gastric irritability and symptoms of indigestion, nud thus the person is saved froni
tliosc symptoms of fever, night-sweats,
headache, etc., which are so common. A
tonic made up largely of alcohol will
shrink the corpuscles of the hlood and
make tliem weaker for resistsnee.
"This is to certify thnt I have used Doctor
Pierce's Oolden Medical Discovery, think it's
the f-rnnilest medicine In the world," writes Mrs.
V. M Young. ofWelr, W. Vs. "I had dyspepsia
In ils worst lorm. I decided to try your medicine. I used Ave bottles, and now I am doing
my own lioiiicwork. A number of my friends
also nre usiny llr. Pierce's medicine and they
recommend it highly. May God bless you in
your grauil work."
Dr. Pierce believes that a tonic made with
alcohol will shrink the red blood corpuscles
ami make ihe system weak for resistance;
that is why lie avoided Ihe use of any alcohol or narcotics iu his''Medical Discovery,"
which contains tin- pure extract from rools
and herbs without a particle of alcohol.

Discovery." There is nothing "just ae
good" for dyspepsia or debility.
biliousness is cured by the use of Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.
New Hat Trimminqs.—It is most
evident that the early autumn hats are
to be trimmed extensively with ribbon
either plisse or quilled. In tho former
shadings of oue color are used, especially wilh tbe steeple-crowned hats, on
which tho raws of plaited ribbon mount
to tlio very top, the deepest shade at the
base, the others coming from under tho
top etlgo of each, until the last ono extends a hnlf inch or so above the crown.
Ouly two, or three shades at most are
permissible aud the narrow crown baud
at start is, of course, also of the deeper
color. Oue reason of tbe sudden popu
lnrity of ribbou effects is the fact that
silk gowns are to be worn literally into
zero weather, and the hats accordingly
must not be too heavily weighted to be
in keeping. With the quilled ribbons
hnrmoniziug colors or sharp contrasts
are seen, one model of whito felt, a
Continental sailor having tho under
brim edged by a black velvet side quilling aud on each of the three flares
below this other quillings iu white and
pale flame color the ribbon a rather firm,
double-faced satin, aud the flame color
next to the black. It guvo tho effect of
cock's combs across the upper corners,
cockshafer brown, wine, purple and
mahogany. The fnr plushes put forward
last year are promised even greater appreciation this season this season and
simulate all the different varieties of
modish furs. The imitation is frank,
however, and they are to be bought on
their own merits as beautiful materials
and not by any means as a substitute
for their prototype. Prices are by nor
means inexpensive and $10 or $16 a yard
must be given for the finer pieces.
Short jackets and pelerines will be made
from these plushes in combination with
cloth or entirely by themselves. The
most perfect simulation was of mole
skin, bnt a baby lamb is almost equally
good and other varieties are on the order
of chinchilla, otter, broadtail and tiger
Once more there is a revival of the
dainty French ribbon-work that was so
popular a garniture in the time of Marie
Antoinette. In those days all tbe coats
and waistcoats of the beaux, as well as
the bodices and petticoats of the belles,
were embroidered and bespangled, and
ribbon-work was one of the most op-
proved modes of decoration.
All the designs chosen for the work
are of tho Rococo period. Small ro6es
and buds, forget-me-nots and daisies
and, iu fact, all small flowers are used,
bnt never anything large or heavy
These flowers aro usaally grouped to
form wreaths or gnrlands or strung iu
festoons tied at intervals with bow-knots
Sometimes baskets or hoi us-of-plenty
are embroidered and filled with ribbon-
work flowers of all description.
In many of the waistcoats and pocket
flaps, beautiful specimens of which may
be seen in almost all museums, spaugles
were introduced as well as jewels,
making brilliant spots in the more delicate embroidery. These specimens were
almost  invariably   worked  ou silk or
satin of a delicate -hade. Sometimes a
small figured brocade or rich moire silk
was used, tho latter being the more
usual background for the modern work
The French ribbon nsed in doing the
work comes iu several widths and many
shades. It is made of silk, rather soft,
like Ionise, aud yet has enough body to
prevent it from crushing wheu it is
drawn through the material.
The work is done with a coarse crewel
or large-eyed needle, aud the ribbon iB
cut iuto small pieces, seldom over four
indies in length, for it is apt to get
stringy if pulled thrugh the background
too many times.

curiously shaded tan silk roses drooped
with a few nestled against crown.
Again is the very fine coque feather
used for entire huts, aud in almost any
shape or shade, these fascinating iridos-
cent effects are found. In the natural
browus trimmed either with i very
much darker shade or black, or iu the
green-blues chnnging to black, they are
probably at their best. Only the breast
fealhes or the finest neck and tail feathers, whioh aro scarcely wider than those
iu the Puradiso plumes are used, lyiug
closo and flat to the frame so that no
rough edges projoct. Ono particularly
pretty turbuu had a brim of the untural
blue-green breast feathers, with a band
of four rows iu a brighter coloring near
edge, for which tiny peacock feathers
were used. The crown matched the
brim, nnd in tho small space betweeu
was a soft fold of palest blue with occasional hairline stripes of black, also
of the feathers. If to tliis, ut left side
on aigrette, aud a buckle were added,
the hat would need uo other trimming.
Burnt onion is the exceedingly unlovely name of a new shade which will

everything from ribbons to broadcloth.
Tlio single shade mentioned is hardly
correct ns there are lit least four
different gradations of hue, ranging
from quite a light aud very warm color
to a rich brown with a stroug undertone
of orange. In the finest qnality of
broudrloth tho prico is $.1 a ynrd, but
that at $2.50 is also very good nnd comes
in most of the latest colors. These
include tho onion shades just mentioned,
coin flower blue, sage green, wine color,

I have a cavalier,
At dusk he draweth near,
To wait outside my wicket.
I hear him draw his bow,
He playeth soft and low,
Hid in the maple thicket.
The listening leaves are stirred,
The dreaming flowers have heard
His strain from out the sbadow.
The broad moon, white and still,
Cllmbeth the dusky hill.
The mists dance In the shadow.

To wait outside my wicket.
