said, cheerfully.
Nina started nnd colored.
"I—I— Oh, you call me thnt!"
she said, hall proudly, half doubtfully.

"Lord Lesborough is busy with the

not tired of them already—"
"No, no!" she Bald, with unnecessary earnestness.
—"Perhnps you'd bring them down
to the saloon, if you don't mind.
Vivienne, I want your help for a
They wont off, but when they had
gone a littlo distance Vivienne paused, and, coming buck, Btooped and
kissed Nina. There did not seem anything in the moment especially appropriate for the caress; but one womnn is never surprised when another
kisses her, and Nina took it gratefully, and returned it. After they
had gone ehe worked until the last
of the remaining bags were finished,
then sho arose, and, with an unconscious Bigh of relief, went towards
the saloon. As sho did so she looked round a littlo fearfully, and yet a
little wistfully; but there was no
one in sight. Nor was thore any one
in the saloon; and, putting the bugs
on the table, she went towards the
beach. As she reached It she looked
seaward, and to her surprise saw a
vessel in the oiling. It was the
Ariel, and    ehe remembered   that   it
waa tho day appointed for its return, .-'In' was gazing at it when Bhe
was startled by discovering that it
was going from the island, instead
of making towards it. She ran down
the beach to tho cove where one of
the Ariel's boats had been anchored,
and was more than startled to find
that it had disappeared. What could
it mean? She gnzed at the receding
vessel im a moment or two, then
—«__ u_, tho beach, cailiug fnr Vivienne.
Vivienne oia not appear, but a
stalwart figure came swiftly from the
saloon. It was Vane. She stopped
short, and, punting, looked from him
to the Ariel.
"What is the matter? You were
calling, dearest?" he said.
"Yesl" she responded, anxiously.
"I was calling il_.dy Vivienne. I
can't find her or ILord Sutcombo.
And tho Ariel—that is the Ariel sailing away from the island!"
He shaded his eyes with his hand
and looked at it. Then he looked at
hor, a curious expression in his eyes,
a dawning joy.
"I found this in the saloon," ho
said, holding out a noto; "perhaps it
will explain—"
She took the paper—lt was folded
in a lover s knot—and, opening it,
"Dear Nina,—Forgive mo! lt was
my wicked plot! And mine alone It
occurred to me while we were talking
last night. We have gone for a
cruise—for a fortnight—when wo will
come back to see if you are still
hero. Hut Lord Lesborough has his
boat, and you may both decide to
spend the rest of your honeymoon
elsewhere. If we do not find you, we
will go to Knglaml and wait for you
in the old rooms at Evorlelgh Court.
Till then, and as long as I live, dear,
I  am  Yours, VIVIENNE."
"They've—gone!" he said, ia alow
voice. "And—left us alonol Nina,
my wife!" and tho next moment his
arms were round her and her face
hidden on his breast.
One morning, a month later, the
wintry sun stealing faintly through
the blinds of the breakfast room at
the Court fell upon the black garbed
figure of Julian, as he sat at tho,
table, looking distastefully at the
good food set out for him. In his
morning suit of black serge his thin
figure looked thinner than of old,
but Just us graceful. His face was
pale; indeed, looked almost as bloodless as ths hands that broke the
piece of toast on his plate. Beside it
was the post-bag, and overy now
and thon he took up a lotter, opened
it and eyed it listlessly, then drop*
I .-ii I it as listlessly on the table.
"Shall I give you some fresh tea,
my lord?" asked Prance, in a subdued volet—nil the voices at the
Court hntl become subdued of lute,
since, in fait, the fatal accident
which hud killed the late earl.
"Eh? Ah, yes, thanks," replied
Julian.   "Is Mr. Holland here?"
"Yes, my lord. He is in the library  with Mr. Tressider."
Juliun nodded. "You can go. I
don't wnnt anything more, Prance.
Tell Dodson to have a cuniago ready
—a close carriage—at eleven."
"Yes, my lord," laid Pranoe, in
the mu in.- low tone.
When ho hnd left tho room Julian
turned to the letters again, and suddenly the gloom in his eyes gave
place to eagornoss, He had found n
letter that Interested him. He tore
it open and rend it, with a red spot
on his hollow cheeks:
''Do not come to see inc. I am
not well enough to ace nny one. I
will write when 1 am stronger.
Ho twisted the noto in his nervous
lingers, staring relleetlngly at the opposite wall meanwhile; then ho tore
tho note Into smull frugiuents, and
threw them on the flre. Por Borne
minutes afterward he sat, his eyes
fixed on vacancy; then, with a start,
he rose and went Into tho library.
The steward and tht lawyer wero
Heeled at the tulilo, with Home account books and papers before them.
Both men were in mourning. Thoy
had been talking nbout the new earl.
"Just tho same, Mr. TroSOldor,"
Holland had said. "He seems like a
man in a dream, and half da*—d and
ticwildorod, ns tf h, could not get
over tho shock of—of that night."
"Well, it'a nnt «.. vurv l^nsr   ••_'/
coi———tea Mr." Tressider,' with a
"Quite so, quite so, Mr. Tressider!
1 am not saying that it's unreasonable; but, well, after all, he has the
title and the estates; and, if 1 may
say so, his lordship doesn't strike
me as tho kind of man to be so
overwhelmed as to lose sight of the
advantages which his late lordship's
death have bestowed on him."
"So," said Mr. tTicssidor. "I
should not hnve credited Mr. Julian
—pardon! 1 can never remember to
givo him his title!—his lordship—the
man to forget thut he is now the
possessor of the title nnd estates. Ho
doesn't sleep, you sny?"
"Fenton told mo yesterday that
very often his lordship's bod had not
been slept In, and that he hoars hiin
pacing up and down his room the
whole night through."
The old lawyer shrugged his
shoulders. "Well! I shouldn't have
credited Mr. Julian—tut, tut, I mean
Lord Lesborough!— with so much sensibility. But, there, Mr. Holland,
the longer I live the more I am convinced that there is one subject you
can never learn—your fellow men!"
"Just so!" assented Holland.
"Now I should havo said that Mr.
Julian—there! I've caught it from
you, Mr. Tressider!—would have got
over his poor cousin's death In less
than a mouth; and yet, you see, it
preys upon him nnd haunts him as if
It happened only yesterday. And
talking of haunting, the whole house
seems as if it were under a ban.
Mrs. Field tells me that she can
scarcely persuade a servant to stay,
and that they who do consent to remain won't go near the ruins of the
Wizard's Hooin— Hush! Here he is!"
They rose and bowed as Julian
enterod. He went to the table, and,
sinking Into a chair, looked not at
them, but between them.
"You wanted to see me?" he   said
to Mr.  Tressider.
The old  lawyer nodded.
"Yes, Mr. Julinn—ahcin—Lord Lesborough, I want you, please, to sign
some papers."
"Is—is everything done—complete?"
asked Julian, his white hands fidgeting with  a psipor-knite.
"Br—well, not quite complete," replied Mr. Tressider. "There have been

Julian turned his dark, sombre
eyes upon blm,
"What difficulty cnn there be?" he
asked, ln a toneless voice. "He—
my poor cousin was in the room;
and though the—the remains were
unrecognizable, his coat was identified."
"Quite so, quite so, Mr.—Lord
Lesborough," snid Mr. Tressider,
"but the Court needs rather more
solid proof of death than that. At
present,' nt .any rate. Later, later
they may accept it. Meanwhile, of
course, ns the next in succession, you
will administer the estate. I shall
make another application, which, if
successful, will place your title beyond dispute. Will you sign this,
and this,   please?"
Juliun drew the papers towards
him and signed in his neat hand,
"Lesborough," then he glnncod at
Mr. Holland.
"Do you want me? I am going for
a drive."
"No, Mr.—Lord Lesborough, Thoro
is n lease or two, but they can wait;
there Is no hurry.''
Julian rose slowly, with the heaviness, the slowness of a man of twice
his weight.
"You arc hnving the Wizard's
Room bricked up, as I ordered?*' he
said,  with his hand on the door.
"Yes, Lord Lesborough. The mon
arc working .steadily at it."
Julinn nodded, held the door for a
moment or two, then went out. The
two men exchanged glances.
"Queer," suid Air. Tressider, pursing his  lips.
"He Ib always like that—like a
man in a dream!" said Mr. Holland, with a shake of the head.
Mr. Tressider shrugged his shoulders. "It Is to be hoped that he will
wako up," he said, resentfully, "or
it will be a bad thing for Lesborough. Ah, poor Vane Mannering I Ho
was the man!"
"And yet he didn't scom particularly happy, Mr. Tressider," remarked   Holland.
Tho old lawyor grunted. "Seems as
if there was a curso on the placo—
and the race," he said.
Julian wont into the hall, and a
footman brought his hat and overcoat. But whon he had got them on
Julian stood looking round him
vaguely It was down thoso stairs
Judith Orme had come with White
face and horror-stricken eyes tha
"Tho carriage, my lord," said
Attended by a couplo of footmen,
Julian got in; but as the carriage
turned the corner of the lawn ho
pulled the cord; and as the horses
came to a stop, got out and slowly,
with bent hoad, wont round to whers
tho musons were at work bricking
up t,ho Wizard's Room. Ho stood
and gazed at thom for some minutes, then he re-entered the carriage
and it drovo on.
Just as it was passing through ths
lodgo gates, with the lodge keeper's
wife curtsying obsequiously, an open
carriage entered. It pulled up, and
Julian, looking from his window,
saw Lord and Lady Fanworthy.
His thin face drew Into a scowl for
a moment, then he forced it Into a
smile, and, stopping tho brougham,
he alighted. »
"How do you do?" ho snid/luave-
ly. "Were you going up to the
Court?  I'll  turn buck."
"No, no! Don't Lesborough," said
Lord Fanworthy, "I wus only coming to ask you If you'd mado up

Julinn stood beside the carriage,
with his hnt in his hands, "llko a

would hnve suid.
"I'm considering tho mntter," ho
said. "You nro sure you won't let mo

- addressed Lord Fnnworthy, but
,ie wus conscious of hor ladyship's
notoriously keen eyes. They seemed
to pierce his  brain.
"No; no,  thanks."
Julian waved his hat and backed
towards his brougham; but Lady
Fanworthy's  voice   arrested   him.

It was strange that she should share
Mr. Tresslder's difficulty in addressing his lordship by his title—"but

•Juliun lifted his pale face, his dark
eyes veiled  by their heavy lids.
"Deborah?"   he said.
"Yes; you know sho left the Court
the day of the—the accident," said
the terrible old lady.
"I know," replied Julian. "Oh,
yes! She went to attend the sicklied of a sister. I expect her back every day So good of you to ask for

Late Sir Chas. Tsnnant Added to Works
His Father Created.
Sir Charles Tennant Is dead. The
end occurred at Broadstalrs, the seat
ot Lady Tennant. Sir Charles became
111 at Biarritz about three months ago,
and tha King then manifested much
kindly Interest In his condition, and
sent his own physician to visit htm.
His health so far Improved that he was
able to come home, and since then his
friends believed that he was making a
good recovery. Sir Charles had Indeed
made arrangements to visit Scotland,
but hemorrhage set In, and he died
somewhat suddenly at 6 o'clock ln the
Sir Charles Tennant was head of the
great chemical works at St. Bollox,
Glasgow. He was also chairman of
the Union Bank of Scotland and director of some twenty other companies.
Sketch of His Life.
-Blr Charles, who was of the thlsd
generations of the Tennants of St. Rollox, was born on Nov. 4, 1823. His
anaeators were tenant farmers In
Ayrshire. Of them, ln the latter half
of the eighteenth century, was John
Tennant, factor on Lady Glencalrn's
estate of Ochiltree, and tenant of the
farm of Glenconner, who became tho
close friend of the father of Robert
Burns—so close a friend that he was
one of the witnesses to the poet's
baptism, and when William Bums
died one of the horses that, walking
tandem, bore the bier from Lochlea
to Alioway, was from Glenconner.
In 1797, while still a bleacher at
Darnley, near Barrhead, Charles patented the process for using calcareous
earth Instead of alkaline substances
for neutralizing the chlorine used ln
bleaching. Two years later he took
out a patent for the famous bleaching
powder, whioh completely changed the
industry. To make this bleaching powder works were started at St. Rollox
by Mr. Tennant ln partnership with
four others under the firm name of Tennant, Knox & Co. His eldest son, John
(father of Sir Charles), was associated
through his long life with the family
business, and he had also Interests in
many other directions. He was a partner In great chemical works at ju.rr.iw
and Newcastle; an extensive owner of
West Indian sugar estates; a member
of the Underwriters' Association, Glasgow, and of Lloyds.'; and one of ths
promoters of the Tharsls Copper Co.
and of the Steel Co. of Scotland.
Born Heir ta Fortunes.
Sir Charles Tennant, therefore, was
born heir to ample foi unes and wide
Interests, and by his own unrelaxlng
perseverance and dauntless enterprise
he developed and added immensely to
his resources. After his early education he served an apprenticeship with
a Arm ln Liverpool; that probation
ended, he returned to Glasgow and
joined the St. Rollox Works, and at
his father's death In April, 1878, l<
West George street, Glasgow, he succeeded to h,s vast Interests. It woj
In July, 1885, that he was created by
Mr. Gladstone a baronet. He took his
designation from "The Glenn," ln
Traqualr parish—an estate among the
Peebleshlre hills, with a mansion
house in the Scottish baronial style of
architecture, which he purchased ln
1854, and which became Sir Charles'
favorite residence. It was partly destroyed by flre, lt may be remembered,
ln the beginning of 1005, and It ls at
present ln process of being rebuilt.
In 1900 St. Rollox Works, along
with most of the other principal chemical works throughout the United Kingdom, became amalgamated under the
name of the United Alkali Co., of which
Sir Charles was made chairman. At the
same time he gave up his business ln
Glasgow as a chemical merchant, and
transferred It to his two sons, and Mr.
Thomas Alexander, who had been long
associated wltk him In St. Rollox
Works, and Mr. Alexander's son.
His Domestio Life.
Sir Charles married, on Aug. 1, 1849,
Emma, daughter of Richard Wlnsloe
of Mount Nebo, Taunton, Somerset,
and by hor had a family of six sons
and six daughters. The three eldest
sons died ln Infancy, and lt ls the
fourth son, Edward Prlaulx, "born May
31, 1869, who ls the hoir to the title
and estate. His wife is tho youngest
daughter olj the Hon. Percy Wyndham.
The sixth siin, Harold, has been member
of Farllameut for Berwickshire   since
1894, Of the surviving daughters, one

Exchequer In the present Government
Another daughter, who died In 1880, wus
the wife of the Hon. Arthur Lyttelton,
Iato Secretary for the Colonies. The
first Lady Tennant   died   In   January,
1895, and was Interred at Traqualr
Churchyard. In Novemfber, 1898, Sir
Charles married Marguerite, youngest
daughter of tho late Col. Charles W.

House of Lords at Last Consents to Bill
to Legalize Marriage With a Deceased Wife's Sister,
After an opposition extended through
many years to the principle Involved,
the British House of Lords has consented to the passage of the bill legalizing marriage with a deceased wife's
sister In the British possessions. it
ls not likely that the House of Commons will throw out the measure, and
as a result such marriages where legal
ln the colonies will be valid ln Great
Britain. Lord Strathcona has been the
chief advocate of the bill, and the arguments used In Its favor were those
with which he must have been familiar
twenty years ago ln the Dominion Parliament.
A Law of Henry VIII.
A history of the subject dates back
to the reign of Henry VIII., who was
peculiarly qualified us au authority on
all subjects relating to marriage and
who forbade a man to marry the sister of his deceased wife. The law then
passed was Inter construed to mean
that such a marriage might be Invalidated; but in 1835 such a union was
made not only voidable, but void ln
fact. This was Lord Lyndhurst's Act,
under which previous marriages of the
kind were declared legal, tout later ones
Illegal. At the time, the understanding
was that tho prohibition should be removed at the next session of Parliament. Nevertheless expectations in
this respect were nntl realized, and
time after time the Commons or
Lords refused  to interfere.
Introduced  by Prince  of Wales.
In 1841 Lord Thornellffe endeavored
to have the Lords repeal the act, and
the next year the Commons defeated a
similar bill by a narrow margin, ln
1847 a Royal Commission was appointed to examine the marriage laws, 'and
the result was another bill, Introduced
ln the Commons in 1849 by Mr. Stuart
Wortley. This bill passed Its second
reading, but did not reach Its finnl
stages. Next year It was passed. In
1851 Lord St. Germaas Introduced the
bill In the Lords, but lt was again defeated. In 1855 the Commons again
assented to the bill, but the Lords remained obdurate. Slace then the measure has been pressed, ln varied form,
a score of times, but always the Lords
has thrown lt out. Sometimes, too,
the Commons dissented, but usually
approved. There was no change in the
Lords, even In 1879, when King Edward,
then Prince of Wales, Introduced the
bill. On that historic occasion the voto
was 101 against to 81.
The Law In Canada.
Until 1882 the law ln Canada was as
the law In England previous to the Act
of 1835, but ln 1880 Mr. Desire Glrouard
(now Mr. Justice, and father of Sir
Percy Glrouard) Introduced a measure
to make marriage legal with the deceased wife's sister. It was seconded by
Mr. Cameron, of North Victoria and,
eloquently argued by them both. The
opposition to the measure was based
primarily on Scriptural grounds, It be_.
Ing held that Leviticus xvill, 18, ant
xx, 21, forbade the marriage. The very
best authority, h iwever, declared the
Interpretation put upon these passngis
to be far fetched and unreasonable. The
fact that the Church of England prayer book forbade thp marriage was held
to be due to an Imperfect translation
from the original Hebrew. It was
shown that tho Jews never construed
the verses to prohibit the marriages.
In short, the case was made conclusive
on the grounds of Scriptural Interpretation.
Objections Raised.
The objections founded on social
grounds appear to have Oieen more
formidable If less concrete. Nobody
wus able to arise and plainly state
them, but there were many vague ancl
mournful allusions to the deplorable
social conditions that would result In
families where a man's sister-in-law
was domiciled and his wife living.
After all, the chief difficulty was found
ln the fact that the Roman Catholic
Church disapproved of the marriages,
and that the Church of England forbade them. The House hesitated to
take a step that might be construed as
an affront to either of these bodies.
Difficulty was also encountered ln tho
marriage laws of Nova Scotia which
existed by an Imperial Act, and which
lt was not in the power of the Dominion Government to amend. Finally,
after great tribulation, the bill worked
Its way through the House and Into the
statutes of the country in 1882. That
there has been any harm done as a result there ls no evidence to show. With
the passage of the law in Great Britain, the principle that marriage with a
deceased's wife sister ls right will be
recognized ln England as regards such
unions effected ln British possessions
which have removed the prohibition.
Startling Figures Supplied by English
Doctor on Ticklish Subject.
Some very disconcerting figures were
supplied to the meeting of the London
Society for the Prevention of Premature Burial at Bloomsbury town hall
by Dr. Hadwen, of Gloucester, as arguments ln favor of speedy legislation ln
burial reform. The following cases, he
said, had been certified by medical men:
Persons burled alive, 149.
Narrow escapes from burial alive,
Dissected alive, 10.
Narrow escapes from dissection
alive, 8.
Embalmed alive, I,
Cremated alive, 1.
He urged thut there should be waiting mortuaries, as In Munich ond other German towns, where bodies eould
remain under strict sanitary conditions
until the first slgiiB of putrefaction—
the only reliable sign of death.
The Ven. Archdeacon Colley, who
was nearly burled alive In his Infancy,
stated that he had prepared plans
whereby part of his house at Stockton,
near Rugby, was to bo turned Into a
"parish parlor," where poor people, living In one or two rooms with a large
family, could bring their dead and pay
them loving attention. The rooms would
be pleasantly furnished and filled w'th
Honors, and the bodies could remain
i here until signs of decomposition had
set ln.

Wbat It Cost and What Ms Present
Value  Should Be.
Seven years after the death of Shakespeare bis collected works were published In a large folio volume, now
known as "the first folio Shakespeare."
This was in the year 1G23. The price
at which tbe volume wub originally
sold wus fl, but perhaps we ought to
take Into consideration the fnct that at
that time money had a value or purchasing power at least eight times that
which tt bas at present. Halllwell-Phll-
lips estimates it at from twelve to
twenty times Its present value. For
this circumstance, however, full allowance may be made by multiplying the
ultimate result by the proper number.
This folio Is regarded as the most
valuable printed book ln the English
language, the last copy that was offered for Bale ln good condition having
brought the record price of nearly
$!),0i«), so that it ls safe to assume that
a perfect copy In the condition In
which It left the publisher's hands
would readily command $10,000, and
the question now arises, What would
be the comparative value of the present price, $10,000, and of the original
price, £1, placed at Interest and compounded every year since 1023?
Over nnd over again I have heard It
suid that the purchasers of the "first
folio" had made a splendid Investment,
and the remark Is frequently used In
reference to the purchase of books la
general Irrespective of the present Intellectual use tbnt may be mude of
them.  Let us make the comparison.
Money placed at compound Interest
at 0 per cent a little more than doubles Itself ln twelve years. At the
present time nnd for n few years back
0 per cent ls a high rate, but it Is a
very low rate for the average. During
a large part of the time money brought
8, 10 and 12 per cent per annum, and
even within the half century Just past
It brought 7 per cent during a large
portion of the time. Now, between
1023 end 1800 there are twenty-three
periods of twelve years each, and at
double progression the twenty-third
term, beginning with unity, would be
8,388,608. This, therefore, would be tht
smount ln pounds whlcb the volume
bad cost up to 1800. In,dollars it
would be $40,704,878.88. An article
which costs $40,000,000 snd sells for
$10,000 cannot be called a very good
financial Investment.
From a literary or Intellectual standpoint, however, the subject presents an
entirely different aspect.
Some time ago I asked one of tbe
foremost Shakespearean scholars In the
world lf he had a copy of the "flrst
folio." His reply was that he could
,not afford It, that lt wdtild not be wise
for him to lose $400 to $509 per year
'for the mere sake of ownership when
for a very Blight expenditure for time
and railway fare he could consult any
one of half a dozen copies whenever he
required to do so.—Follies of Science.

ine Growing Pigs.
At weaning time there is not so
much danger of losing the pigs as of
checking their growth, says R. L. Dean
in National Stockman. The pig is not
yet a hog, and he cau hardly subsist as
the hog does. A good deal of nourishment in liquid form ls needed and also
some tender grass. Pigs do not take
much grain, but they like a bit of oats,
wheat or corn. Their teeth cannot handle much that ls hard; hence softening
It by soaking will bo beneficial. Sweet
milk and middlings warmed with hot
water will appeal to their appetites at
weaning time, and lt need not be
made as strong as when fed later. It
Is generally known that sour milk
should sot be given.

Flag   of   the   Campbells   Onoe    Mors
Flutters In the Breeze on the Tower    j
of   Inverary   Castle. I
Greatly to the satisfaction of all good
Scotchmen, tho Hag of the house of
Campbell, known up In the north as
"The Galley of Lome," once more flutters ln the breeze on the tower of Inverary Castle, showing that the
strangers have departed from the ancestral abode of the Dukes of Argyll,
and that the Campbells have come to
their own again, writes the Marquise
de Fontenoy. True, lt ls not the Duke
of Argyll himself who ls In residence
there but his youngber brother, Lord
George Campbell, who has taken over
the lease of the place from Mr. Cress-
well, its recent tenant, for the remainder of the four years that It has to
run. Mr. Cresswell was only too anxious to get rid of the place. For there
Is an old superstition ln Scotland, and
especially ln the County of Argyll, ta
the effect that the occupancy of Inverary Castle brings misfortune to any
one who Is not a Campbell. Certainly
the experiences of the tenants of the
place, since the present duke decided
to let lt after the death of his father,
would seem to lend color to the story.
For during the six years that have
elapsed since then, several lessees have
succeeded one another, two of them
dying suddenly, while a third was overtaken by financial disaster. No wonder,
therefore, that Mr. Cresswell has ibeen
glad to give up the place.
Inverary Castle as it now stands 1.
one of the works of the famous archl
teet Adam, who began it In the year
1744 for the third Duke of Argyll. The
banks of the River Aray have, however, been the home of the chiefs of the
great clan of Campbell for more than
BOO years, and the ruins of the old bar
onlal hall, built by the first Earl ol
Argyll, are still to be seen close to the
present castle. The latter ls constructed of a sort of slate colored stone ln
the castellated style, with round towers at the angles, and surmounted by a
great square tower ln the centre. The
great hall of the castle, which ls be
neath this central tower, ls filled with
ancient armor and weapons, comprls
Ing 100 muskets which were used    ln
1745 by the Campbells, when "Prince
Charlie," as pretender, hod all Scot
land up In arms. One side of the ens
tie slopes down towards Loch Fyne,
one of the most famous and beautiful
of the lochs of the western Highlands.
The history of the Campbells ls the
history of Scotland. No family hae
"oome a larger share In the trials and
triumphs of that northern kingdom
than the clan of which MacCallum
More ls the chief. It ls owing to this
that the name of Inverary figures so
frequently both In Scottish history and
Scottish literature, and lt will be familiar to every reader of the novels of
Waltor Scott. Burns, too, has been
eloquent about the castle ln his poems,
though ln an unfriendly strain. For
falling to receive proper hospitality on
the part of the duke of his days, when
he visited the castle, he revenged himself by the following well-known lines
Whoe'er he be that sojourns here,
I pity much his case,
Unless he come to wait upon
The lord, their god, his grace.
There's naethlng here but Highland

Inasmuch as the union of the present Duke of Argyll and of Princess
Louise has remained childless, the next

other dignities and estates ls his brother. Lord Archibald Campbell, who,
being a rich man and an enthusiastic
Highlander, devoted to the maintenance
of all the old customs and traditions of
the land of the north, may be relied
upon not only to establish his headquarters at Inverary, when he sue
ceeds to the dukedom, but likewise tn

bank, where both the King and Queen
keep private accounts, and which hs
entered on the nomination of Lady
Burdett-Coutts Ave and thirty years
ago. Previous to lhat he had held a
clerkship ln a firm of wine merchants
at Bordeaux, and had afterwards spent
four years In a samllar capacity with
a Arm of tea brokers ln Mincing lane,
Lord Archibald's eult for everything
Scottish has led him to organize ths
so-called "Highland Association,"
which does for old Highland musio
much of the same work as the Eisteddfod does for the Welsh folk songs, and
the movement has accomplished a great
deal towards reviving the old Highland
spirit by encouraging the children to
sing the purely national airs to the
music of the rlursnch, as the ancient
Highland harp Is called. Lord and Lady
Archibald are talented people, and the
open air performances of Shakespearean plays at Coombe hill, their place
at Kingston-on-Thames, were, at ons
time, famous.
Lord Archibald Is a wonderfully
Clever artist with his brush, and was

Irving's Carefulness.
Sir Henry Irving was accustomed to
visit at the home of Miss Frlswsll,
author of "In the Sixties snd Seven-
ties," ln which volume appears ths following anecdote: "My mother often
used to point out little details that had
been overlooked. I remember ons In
'The Bells,' which my mother told Mr.
Irving on the first night, when hs returned to our house to supper. People
who have seen the play may rememb-ir
that ths flrst scene ls a small Inn, and
that there ls supposed to hare been a
deep fall of snow. Ths Innkeeper, Matthias (Irving), walked ln on that flrat
night ln ordinary black boots, with no
snow upon them. My mother spoke of
lt, and afterwards Matthias wore high
black boots, and stood on tho mat while
the snow was brushed oft them. Remarks were made as to Mr. Irving's attention to the minutest details, and this
was cited as an Instance."

Socialists Object To It.
Mr. James Simpson, a prominent Socialist and a member of the Toronlo
Board of Education, freely expressed
his opinion on Sir Frederick Borden's
recent speech, ln which he advocated
teaching school children how to handle
the rifle,
"The Socialist has no objection to the
development of marksmanship or phy-
aloal development," said Mr. Simpson.
"What the Socialist objects to is the
development of the military spirit
amongst the Public school pupils which
ot necessity involves national animosities and prejudices. If Sir Frederick
-Irden seeks to make- the Publio
'schools a klndergoirten, for the regl-
monts of Canada, Socialists will oppose
it to the bitter end. The development
ot iho military spirit ln the Public

Young Stanley Condor, the adventurous boy traveler, whose latest exploit

that he should bs placed in a reformatory. Mr. —bighorn, however, has fallen In with the view expressed by The

stipendiary said that hs was reluctant
to send the boy to such an institution.
There was nothing criminal ln his roving propensities and he had tha making of a good man ln him. He had,
therefore, decided to send him to the

until he was sixteen years of age.
The Clio is a vessel on which only

Fonaht the Whole Class.

out of his wits, but, recovering from
his stupor (nnd only ono who knows tho
full meaning of "rate" among the midshipmen can have a correct appreciation of what that announcement from
a "plcbo" to nn upper clnss mnn carried), tho "rating" demanded, "Mld-
shipmnn, do you wnnt to fight?"
"That's what I am looking for." The
fight wns arranged and tho "plebe"
whipped his man, snys the New York
Herald. Then another youngster was
supplied, and ho went tho way of the
flrst, and so on until a half dozen had
been discomfited. Sometimes several
fights would follow In succession, when
tho "plebe" would say: "Gentlemen, I
nm tlrod now. I'll seo you again nnother dny." The ncodemy authorities
found ont whnt was In progress nnd
sent for the "plebe," nnd then, before
official authority, he announced, "1 can
whip the whole class." It turned out
that tho "plebe" had been a price fighter beforo entering the academy.

mock ocean and whether at rest or In
motion has an nlr of vigilance, vivacity
nud Intelligence greater than that of
uny of the normally shaped fish. This
Is ln part due to Its habits and In part
to the expression of the flat fish's eye.
This, which is sunk and invisible In the
dead fish, Is raised on a kind of turret
ln the living turbot, or sole, and set
there In a half revolving apparatus,
working almost as independently as
the "ball and socket" eyes of the chameleon. There Is this difference, however, in the eye of the lizard aud of the
fish—the Iris of the chameleon Is n mere
pluhole at the top of the eyeball, which
Is thus absolutely without expression.
The turbot's, or "butt's," eyes are

A Prominent Breeder Gives His Views
On An Important Matter.
E. B. Thompson, the noted Barred
Rock breeder, says in the Reliable
Poultry Journal:
"I hnve found the beat way to get
the most eggs from laying heus is to
have plenty of litter ln the pens (either
straw or leaves) and to scatter the dry
feed Into lt to make them work.
Wheat, cracked corn and pipped oats,
the same that we feed ho, ses, are the
best dry grains for me. These grains
I feed In this way every day, morning
and night. At noon it ls a good plan
to throw a handful or two of scratching food to keep the heus exercising
"Every day or every alternate day
I substitute a mash for the morning
dry feed. This ls made of hominy or
cornmeal, wheat bran, ground oats,
white wheat middlings and beef scrap,
all scalded with milk or water and
mixed bo the mash will crumble. Twice
a week a little powdered charcoal is
put In the mash. This charcoal ls and
has been for twenty-five years a fs-
von'.te conditioner with me. I value
the white flour middlings, as they keep
the bowels ln fine condition. Laying

wneat and Climate.
Schlndler haa shown that the size
and weight of the berry of wheats of
different localities depend upon tho
length of the vegetation period, and
more especially upon the length of the
Interval between blossoming and rip
cuing. This, as he explains, ts ln accordance with tho development of the
grain as lt matures, which ls as follows: The glumes of chaff of th*
berry are flrst ln order of growth;
following these, the outer fruit coating and then the Inner true seed coats
develop, then follows the endosperm,
which is th* richest In gluten, and
later still the storage tissues In the
Interior of the berry are formed. In
regions with a moist, warm climate
the fruiting period is prolonged and
abundant quantities of starch are
formed in the large leaf surfaces
which such a climate produces on tha
wheats. The starch thus formed Is
all transferred to the berry, which
Is thus filled up ss ls shown externally by the broadly expanded form. Sucb
a wheat is relatively rich ln carbohydrates and poor ln protein. Oa ths
other hand a hot, dry climate shortens the time for starch transference,
and the native wheats of such a climate are ln general richer ln protein
and lower ln carbohydrates. As Illustrations of this, he shows that the
climate, and especially proximity to
the sea, closely affects the amount of
gluten ln the wheat. The Insular climate of England produces a robust
wheat having large ears, with numerous kernels, but with less gluten than
the wheats of Eastern Europe. According to this author, the wheats of
England and other countries having a
similar climate seldom contaia more
than 10 per cent, of gluten; while ln
the warm temperate zone, In eastern
Europe, as. woll as ln the western
United States, In southern Russia, Ron-
mania, and Turkey, and ln subtropical
zone, the gluten contest mny even exceed 20 per cent.—American Miller.

"I'd like to have a mess ot gulls-
eggs now," said the epicure. "They
beat a hen's egg all to pieces, and nine
people out of ten eat gull eggs for
plover eggs aad dou't know tlie difference.
"In Englnnd from Mnrch to May
there are hundreds of men who make
a living by gntherlng gulls' eggB nud
foisting them on the public for plovers'
eggs. The fens and suit marshes ot
the English coast are as valuable on
account of the gulls' nests as vineyards or orchards. These fens rent at
a high rate, and keepers protect the
eggs from thieves the same as keepers
on noblemen's estates keep out poachers.
"Early In March the gulls pair. Thoy
in., their eggs ln the salt marshes in a
hollow or a tuft of grass. Tho nesis
In the best marshes touch. You can't
take a step without crushing eggs under foot. These eggs, ollvo colored,
plashed with green nnd gray, sell at
wholesale for 7 cents apiece. They ar*
called plovers' eggs.
"Each nest has, as a rule, threo eggs
When tho first set Is taken from her
Uie female bird lays another set, and
If Oils one is taken too she lays a
third set, which Is always left to her to
hatch, or otherwise she and hor kind
would never return to tho marsh again.

A <Joeen of the Culinary Art Who
Lived In Genoa.
Santa Zlta, as tbe patron saint of tho
cooks Is named, lived, lt appears, at
Genoa and was there canonized. She
could, so runs the legend, cook better
than any chef within 300 miles of the
town, which, we all know, ls noted for
Its wonderful soups and dumplings,
though of course lu the latter Indigestible article of food outrivaled by
Vienna, since lt ls one of the chief articles ln the religion of gastronomy
thnt It is only In the knlBerstadt that
the "glose" ls in perfection. Santa
Zlta was, lt seems, not less famous for
her piety than for cooking and was a
constant attendant at the cathedral
during high mass.
One day, however, she fell Into •
trance, so called—though, In plain English, a good, sound Bleep—and quits
forgot that she had to produce an exceptionally fine dinner for a large company. On awakening she hurried forth
from the sacred edllleo In a way which
was far indeed from hor wont, but on
reaching tbo kitchen wbat was hor
surprise and delight to find a party of
cherub celestials busy cooking the required dinner. She did not interfere,
but was at flrst uot unwilling to accept
the praise which was lavished ou ber
culinary success. She soon repented,
however, and told tbe world the truth
about the spiritual and miraculous help
she had received, aud It was agreed on
all sides that she deserved to be canonized. Accordingly she became Santa
Zlta,—London Queen.

Tlm Wooden was literally "too lazy
to live," as the anecdotes of him told
In an old "History of Milwaukee" go
to prove. It may be thst the doctors
of today would pronounce him a victim
of the Insidious germ which works to
uncontrollable languor, but the diagnosis of the good old times of Tim's
career reads simply, "plumb laziness."
A party of Indians, knowing Tim's
peculiarities, once captured him for
fun and made him believe tbat they
were going to burn him at tbe stake.
Tbey took him to some distance from
the village, tied him to a tree and
heaped wood about him. Just as the
pile was ready to light the chief approached and whispered ln Tim's ear
that lf be would never tell who had
captured him he would release blm and
let him return to Milwaukee.
"What, walk twenty miles!" exclaimed Tlm. "If you'll lend me a
horse I'll agree to It."
One time when Tlm was lumbering
s loose log made a perilous descent
down tbe side of the hill. Tb* shouts
of the other meu warned him that the
danger was coming his way, but rather
than expend vital force ln jumping he
let the log strike hlni und break his leg.
Palled the Court's Lea.
The following remarkable Judgment
was delivered some years ago by a
magistrate In one ot tbe English colonics:
"Pachua Is hereby charged with having on the 11th of January followed
the court on its rising and while said
court was ln the act of mounting Into
Its buggy came from behind and, seizing the court's dangling leg, the other
foot being on the step, forcibly pulled
back the court, frightened the horse
and nearly caused an accident The
reason alleged for this by accused ls
that he wanted to hear the result of an
application of his. The practice by petitioners of pulling tho courts by the
legs Is one that Bhould be discouraged.
Accused only snys lie ls a poor man,
admitting tho truth of tho complaint.
He Is sentenced to one month's rigorous Imprisonment."
Strange to relate, the lieutenant governor of the province on reading tbls
sentence felt It necessary to Intimate
to the magistrate that neither tho sentence Itself nor the peculiar phraseology In which It was couched was calculated to meet with approval from minds
running In legnl grooves.
A Cnb.
Infant lions nnd bonrs are now generally spoken of ns "cubs," but ln former times the word "whelps" would
hnvo been used. Every edition of the
English Bible from W'yellf's time to
1CI1 gives "whelp" for the young of
tho lion or bear. A "cub" meant originally In English only a young fox. But
by Shakespeare's timo It was posBlble
to talk of tho "young suckling cubs"
of n sho bear, and Waller even applied
"cub" to s young whole, now known
as a "calf." Tho origin of "cub" Is not
really known, though the conjecture
connecting It with tho old Irish "culb,"
a dog, would make It nkln to the Latin
"cauls" and English "bound."
Roots For Sheep Feed-
Roots are exceedlnnly productive and
doubtless yield under farorablo cul-
turo more succulent food than can bo
grown upou the same given area of
nny other crop. Sonio of our prominent Investigators have compared tho
dry matter of roots with that of sllago
and other farm crops, ln their computation they have found that roots
full short In dry matter as compared
with other crops and thus havo advocated the growing of other feeds. It ls
not a fair proposition to tho root crop
to compare its dry matter with other
crops bocauso of the fart that ths
value of roots for sheep feed does not
lie wholly In this.
Roots for sheep feed hnvo two distinct values—first, value as a flesh
forming material, and, second, Influence upon assimilation of otber foods.
Of the two values the latter Is of the
greater Importance.—National Stockman.

the departure of a Lieutenant-Governor
so keenly as In the case of Sir Henri
Joly de Lotbinloro, tho Chcvallor Bayard of Quebec. The courtly old gentleman, who has given three sons to ths

Good-bye, that word rings hollow when

That our American "torests abound In
plants which possess the most valuable
medicinal virtues is abundantly attested
by scores of the most eminent medical
writers and teachers. Even the untutored Indians had discovered the usefulness of many native plants before the
.advent of the white race. This Information, imparted freely to th* whites, led
tthe latter to continue Investigations until
■to-day we have a rich assortment of most
valuable American medicinal roots.
Sr. Pierce believes thst our American for-
'eats abound In most valuable medicinal roots
for the cure of .most obstinate and fatal disease's. If ws would properly Investigate them:

subject of a public announcement.
That is advertising! Consequently
if the survival of the fittest applies
to business principles as well as it
does to other walks of life, the better the advertising—the better the
publicity,—the better the results.
Good f-sults mean good business,
and good business is what every
merchant advertises for. If he did
not wish to excel in his particular
line, he would not take the trouble
to write an advertisement, much
mors* pay for the costly newspaper
and magazine space.—British Advertiser.
