Mutco—DC hail saul gooa-niglit anil
gone off to liis quarters in the
saloon; but ho could nut .Bleep, and
after awhile lie got up ■and went
down to the beach and looked at the
moonlit sea, as Vane Mannering litul
looked on many, such a night. Presently, bulf unconscipusly, he went
up toward tho other huts. The one
in which he bad loft the two girls
was dark, nil was still; but as he
tinned he Saw a dim light in the
other hut, the hut he bud not yet
entored. Surprised and curious, ho
approached it noiselessly unil cautiously, and looked in tlirough tbo
now gaping lugs. As bo did so tlio
sound of sobbing reached him. It
ciinic from Ninu, who was tcacollng
beside the rough boil, her anus out-
si retched on it, hor hands closed over u (ia[)cr, a ring lay on tlie bed-
rug as if it hud fallen from hor hand.
Her attitude, so full of the abandon
of grief and desi—ir, smote Sutcombe'
to the heart.
Why wns she kneeling there, in
that rough hut on that desolate island, her eyes streaming with tears.
her lips quivering with grief? His
face went white, and his own lips
twitched with nn unspoken dread, a
vague presentiment. He remained
there for a moment only, for Uie
aacredness of hor grief smote upon
him like, a repruach; and he moved
a'*.oy and stood, with folded anus
and Bent head, pondering gloomily.
He lost all sense of time, of the
fact that she might find him there,
and ho started ne tho rough doer
opened unil Bhe came out. The tears
were still shining in her eyes, which
she lifted to his, and her hand—did
it clasp the pnper ho had seen'.—went
to her hoart.
It-, took a step towards hor.
"Decimal" he breathed. "Decima!
Ah, what is it? What is the matter?
You—you aro unhappy, troubled
about something I Forgive mel l.diil
not know it wus you, did not know
you wero there. I saw tho light anil
came to find out if there wus anything wrong. What is it, Decima?
You will tell me, will you not? I'vo
no right to ask—and yot I havo,
For I Iovo you, Decimal No sot-
row, no trouble can touch.you thut
docs not reach me also! All my
thoughts, all my life, are bound up
in you! I'vo no thought, no care.
but for you! Ah, don't look at mo
so! What—what—have I said, wbat
havo I done? Have pity ou me, Decima denr—"
Ho had drawn nearer to her,    half
unconsciously,  but she shrank     back
from him with something, as it seem
cd to him, liko terror and horror in
her eyos and on hor quivering lips
"No! Nc:*' she breathed with
shudder, as if a cold wind had passed ovor her. "Don't—don't say it! I
—I never know, guessed—"
"Not oven guessed! Oh, Decima!"
he whispered, reproachfully.
"No!" she responded, passionately. "Never! I—did not know. You
must not say another word! You
will not? Oh, how unhappy, how
wretched I am! And I thought to—
to mako you happy—"
"You have, you have, Decima!" he
pleaded, for her grief, hor self-r
prouch, were almost unendurable. "I
hud never known happiness until J
had known you, until that night I
saw you—"
"Hu.sh!" she wbispored, almost
moaned. "You—you don't know what
you  aro saying,  what—what I am!"
As she spoke she thrust tho paper
and tho ring she had held in her
clenched hand into her bosom.
"Don't sny another word. Liit us—
let us try and think you havo not
spoken. For Vivienne's sako I
forget it, I will, indeed! And
must, you must, you must!"
ilo put out his hand to stay
and  tried to stammer out a remonstrance,   an appeal, but    sho shrank
back, antl murmuring:
"No, no! Lot us forget it. You
don't know—don't know!" passed
him and glided toward the hut
Where sho had left Vivicnne sleeping.
And on a similar night, soma
months earlier, Vano strode up and
tlown tho torraco at Lesborough and
looked into the mist that hid his
lawns and park. It hid tho familiar
view from hiin, but it opened and
lot him ga/e, with longing despair,
at the Fairy Isle, thut rarely loft hia
Ono of the drawing-room windows
was open, anil Judith's voice floated
out to him. In a pnii.se tho sound of
voices and laughter followed. Tho
scent of cigarettes fame from the
smoking-room, the lights from tha
windows of tlio great houso fell gur-
ishly athwart tho torraco.
It all Jnrrod and wcighod upon
hlni. Tho man was infinitely weary
of it all; for Fata had robbed him
of the ono woman who could havo
mado lifo worth living, and ths rank,
tho wealth, that wuro his, tasted as
bitter as Dcud .Sea fruit upon his
"My God, who would have thought
It would have been so difficult to
forgot!" he muttered to himself us
he bit at tho unlit cigar between his
tacth, "How much longer, I wondor,
can I endure this life? And what a
tool I am to bear it a moment longer. Why don't 1 go?"
He smiled in grim mockery at tho
question. Ho was tho Earl of Lesborough, "lord of half a county,"
with all tho "responsibilities and
duties" of his lofty position. Rank,
Wealth, tho- power which oolongs by
right to men in his position, wound
round him liko tho chains of a galley slave, nud cut into bis aching,
unsatisfied heart,
"If by somo moans, any way, any
how, I could get away from It all
forever!" ho mused, with a gesture
of utter weariness.
He need not hnvo worried himself
ovor tho hopelessness of tho Idea, for
at that moment Julian, as ho sat
brootling in tlio Witch's Room, Was
evolving a simple littlo plan Which
would mako the gratification of
Vane's  do—ic quito easy.
It was tho Inst night of the house

amongsc oVners, tne J-— —-'nie-rus ana
tho Ori'ies still remained, tho Letch-
fords beeuuse Vane was fond of
them and had pressed them to stay
until tho last minute, and the Ormes

should have every chance of paying
his suit to Judith.

Charles in that hour before dinner
which he always claimed for a confidential chat with his wife. "But of

"Y-es," she said, as sho lay back
in her chair bofore tho fire, warming
herself in her drassing-gown. "Y-es.
lt Is to be wished that Lord Lesborough could reciprocate and bo 'all

"You think ho isn't happy, that
there's still something on his mind,
Blanche? How you stick to that idea
of yours! Ho you remember how it

She nodded thoughtfully. "Yes, tho
trouble is still there, whatever it
was and is," she said. "No ont-
could have played tho part of host
better than he has done; but he has
been playing, acting, all the time.
Ho hns been bored—no, thnt's not

day ami every hour; and much as be
likes somo of us—you especially
Charllo—ht will not be sorry, I
think, whon he sees tho last of us.
Whero is he going;  do you know?"
Sir Charles shook his head. "I
don't know. I 4on't think he knows
himself. I asked him this morning
what his plans were, and ho shrug-
god his shoulders and smiled—you
know that smile of hia—as if ho did
not caro, and It did not matter."
Thoro was silence for a moment or
two, then Letchford said:
"Is Judith engaged to Julian
Shore, Blanche?"
She did not roply for awhile, then
alio replied:
"I don't know. Sometimes I think
sho is, at others I doubt it; but I
fancy thore is somo kind of understanding between them Ho has
looked—well, as a man looks who at
least has some reason for hope."
"He looks jolly bad at most
times," grunted Lctchford. There'*
a pinched look about his face, his
eyes shino too much, and he seems
to be in a kind of dream half his
"I know. And Judith has the same
look about hor mouth and in her
eyes. Charlie, thore is something
mysterious about those two. They
seem to bo—to bo watching each
othor, ns if they wero waiting for

Letchford burst into a laugh.
" 'Pon my word, Blanche, you talk
like a shilling novel! Why on earth
should they watch each othor, and
what can happen? I say, would you
mind if I asked Vano to como South
with us?"
"Not in tho least. I have grown
to like him. But he won't come,
Charlie. As I said, he will bo glad
to be rid of us, for he wants to be
alone to brood aver, this unknown
trouble of his. But ask hiin, by all
"I'll havo to ask Julian Shore as
well."    g.
Lady Iflnnehe raised her blows and
made a little grimace.
"I suppose so; well, I don't like
Mr. Shore—hut it does not mntter.
Lord Lesborough will not come, and
Mr. Shore would not aceopt without
him. I huve no fear. You'd better

As Lady Letchford had snid, most

because the moon is as dead as a doornail. Our satellite ls "ever foreshadowing oUr own ultimate doom, like tbe

the meantime, if tbe E lluburgh Review
has correctly conceived the teachings
of seismology, the Inhabitants of earth
may console themselves for the bavoc
wrought through eartbquukes by reflecting that they demonstrate the vitality of our planet. In that distant
past when tbe moon actually quaked
there may — some scientists declare
there must—have been forms of animation upon its surface. "Though the
moon, by reason of its smaller size,
was bound to lose its atmosphere, It
must have taken millions of years to
do so, and there may have been time
for the cycle of life, from the primeval
germ up to sentient beings and down
again to tbe hardiest lingering plant
cells, to run Its full circle." The writer
ln the Edinburgh Review continues to
develop his line of thought:
"Earthquakes are a sign of planetary
vitality. They would seem to be characteristic of the terrestrial phase of development Effete globes like the moon
can scarcely be subject to the stress to
which they are due, nor can they be
very suitably constituted for tbe propagation of elastic waves. Inchoate
worlds, such as Jupiter and Saturn,
are still less likely to be the scenes of
reverberating concussions. Their materials have not yet acquired tbe necessary cohesion. They are pasty or fluid,

crumble and rivers carry sediment, so
long as the areal distribution of loads
fluctuates and strains evoke forces adequate for their catastrophic relief.
"Our globe ls by its elasticity kept
habitable. The separation of sen from

Easter Sunday cannot happen earlier
than March 22 or later than April 25,
but between these two dates it has a
range of thirty-five' days. At the time
of the council of Nice, 325 A. D., it
was agreed by the representatives present that from that time forward Easter
should fall ofl the first Suuday after
the full moon occurring on or next
after March 21, or, ln other words, "on
the first Sunday after the flrst full
moon after tbe sun crosses tbe line."
Since ' tbe nbove arrangement was
adopted by the great ecclesiastical
council referred to Eastor has fallen
ou March 22 and on evory date between that and April 25, but lt is only
after long intervals of time that lt occurs on its extreme dates. In 1880
Easter fell on April 25, its latest-possible date, an event which will not
again occur until the spring of 1043.
The last time Easter fell on its earliest
date was in 1818. This will not happen
again until after this century.
"Very frequently," says a New York
lawyer, "there ls an element of '—-conscious humor In the findings of a jury.
To my mind, tbe best I ever heard ln
this connection was the verdict brought
ln by a coroner's jury in MIchignu,
who were called upon to pass upon the
case of the sml den death of a merchant
ln Lansing.
"The finding was as follows: 'We,
the Jury, find from the physician's
statement that the deceased came to
his death from heart failure, superinduced by business failure, which was
caused by speculation failure, wblcb
was tbe result of failure to see far
enough ahead.'"

ttonarchn   Who    Were    Fnino-n    Fer
Their Culinary   Learning;.
Royalty in times past has bud many
an accomplished epicure as learned ln
culinary lore us ill the practice of the
cuisine. It wus Henry de Valos wbo
brought into fashion aromatic sauces
aud various spice diiiutles, inheriting
bis taste for cooking from Catherine de'
Medici, who Iu traduced into France not
only Ices, but much of tbe culinary art
from Italy.
Louis XIV. wus devoted to gastronomy, aud for bis use liquors were Invented ln bis old age, when, lt is said,
he could scarcely endure existence
without a succession of artificial stimulants. But the pertinacity with
whleh Charles V. of Spain gratified his
appetite uuder all circumstances rivaled even that of Frederick the Great
Before rising hi the morniug potted
capons were usually served to him,
prepared with sugar, milk and spices,
iced beer being one of his favorite
drinks. Fish, too, of every kind was to
his taste, eels, frogs and oysters occupying a prominent place iu tbe royal
bill of fare. Frederick the Great was
foud of highly seasoned meats and had
a strong predilection for Italian or
French made dishes. It was his habit
duriug dinner to make pencil marks
against the different Items of tbe bill
of fare, to which be referred when
conversing afterward with the maltre
Wben the Due d'Escars and hia royal
master, Louis XVIII., were closeted together to talk over a dish the ministers
were kept waiting ln tbe antechamber,
and tbe next day this notice regularly
appeared In the official journals: "M. le
Due d'Escars a travaille dans le cabinet" It may be ndded that Louis
XVIII. bad invented the "truffles a la
puree d'ortolaus," and, reluctant to
disclose the secret, he invariably prepared tbe dish with his own hands,
assisted by tbe duke. Another epicurean of the flrst order was the Polish
King Stanislaus I szinskl, wbo invented many a new dish and vastly improved the style of cooking, astonishing the Lorralners, among other things,
by having served up at his table dishes
of meat with fruits, both of which had
been Cooked together. Geese which
had been plucked when alive, then
whipped to death, and marinees were
set down in his bill of fare as foreign
birds, and after a somewhat similar
fashion turkeys were transformed Into
"coqs de bruyercs" and wore served at
the table burled under the strong
smelling herbs of Lorraine. One year
was remarkable for the entire failure
of the fruit crop, but Stanislaus would
not be deprived of bis dessert, for,
turning his attention to confectionery,
be substituted compositions of sugared
vegetables, especially of turnips.—London Standard.

Is there anything so wonderful as
the eye? I do not cure bow cold tbe
weather may be tho eye never fulls. In

the hair even crackles In tbe blast-
when all is lost apparently, tlie eyes
suffer no pain, but continue to perform
their normal functions. Tlie people of
the most Inclement, most frigid regions of the extreme north bundle up
everything but their eyes. Iu Canada
you may have a man to rush nt you all
of a sudden and sljp a handful of
snow on your ears or nose or mouth,
but he never attacks your eyes. The
eyes are never frost bitten. They seem
to suffer only in a strong wind which
carries in its current some Irritating
substance, as sand in the desert or
fine "coriander seed" ln the polar regions. And yet, notwithstanding tbls,
the eyes nre tbe most sensitive of our

The Word "Kaffir."
Very curious bns been the history of
the word "Kaffir." Sir Henry Rawlin-
son once said that the loveliest orientnl
lady he had ever seen was a Kaffir
slave at Kabul. When she had loosened her golden hair she could cover herself completely as with a veil. This
name of Kaffir ls as worldwide ns
Islnmism, for lt ls the name of "unbeliever" applied by true Mohammedans to those that, refuse the faith.
Tbe Portuguese found it applied to the
negroes of east Africu by their Arab
predecessors and handed lt on to the
Dutch and to the Englisb. The Kaffir
slave at Kabul belonged to one of
those black clad mountain tribes In
the heart of Afghanistan, who till 1805
defied their Moslem neighbors and on
their dizzy precipices gloated on their
Idolatry. These Afghan Kaffirs claim
to bo descended from the Greeks who
came with Alexander ln his conquest
of the east.
The Word "Slave."
The word "slave," which is happily
used seldom unless metaphorically in
this country, is a word of brilliant historical antecedents. Its original, the
Russian "slava," means glorious and
Is the title of that race which subsumes the Russian people. But when
the Germans reduced hosts of the Slavs
to servitude their name, from malice
or accident, as Gibbon Bays, became
synonymous with "servile." It retains
uo more suggestion of Its racial origin
now than does "ogre," which is really
"Hungarian," from a confusion of the '
Magyars with the Huns, and of both
with the terrible Tartars.
Good Temper.
Ooou temper is tbe most contented,
the most comfortable, state of the soul;
the greatest happiness both for those
who possess it and for those who
feel Its Influence. With gentleness in
his own character, comfort in his home
and good temper ln his wife the earthly felicity of man ls complete.—Anon.
The Chansre of a Word.
A remarkable Instance of verbal degradation Is the word "slave." Its original, the Russian "uluvn," meant glorious, being etymologic—Ily akin to tbe
English word "glory," and was proudly taken as their name by the Slavonic
people. But when the Germans reduced hosts of the Slavs to servitude
tbelr name, from malice or accident,
as Gibbon says, became synonymous
with "servile." It retains no more suggestion of its racial origin now than
does "ogre," which ls really "Hungarian," from a confusion of tho Magyars with the Huns, aud of both with
the terrible Tartars.
Delaware'* Names.
Delaware has been called the Diamond State, for, though small In size,
lt formerly was of great political Importance. It also enjoys the nickname
ot the Blue Hen State, this having
been bestowed on account of a gentleman named Caldwell, who made the
state famous ln sporting annals by the
quality of his gamecocks, whlcb be always bred from tbe eggs of a blue hen,
believing that this was the best color
for the mother of a gamecock.
An early use of this slang expression
ls to be found In some verses—probably by Elkanah Settle—quoted by Walter Thornbury in his "Old and New
London," from a poem on the "Lord
Mayor's Banquet of Sir Samuel Flud-
yer," 1761, and apparently published at
the time:
Where are your eyes and ears?

A Pmillnsr Trick.
Take n piece of writing paper about
three Inches square and with a lead
pencil, the point of which has been
dipped In water, draw a circle, a
square, a triaugle or any otber geometrical figure. Put tlie paper carefully on a pan of water, letting It float
and leaving the surface dry. Carefully
drop water on tbe surface of tbe paper
until the space within the figure ls
filled. Tbe moistened peno'l lines will
keep it from flowing outside ths Qgu-e
Now place' the point of a plu over some
point In tbe figure near tbe edge. The
pin point must penetrate the surface
of the water, but must not touch the
paper. At once the paper will float
around until the pin points directly to
the center of the figure. See lf you

Clinnfflnf- Serpents Inlo Rods.
The Egyptian cobra is not unlike Its
Asiatic cousin except in the absence of
tbe curious spectacle-like mark which
distinguishes the latter. Although it ls
tbe most poisonous reptile known to
Inhabit northern Africa, lt Is tbe favorite among the snake charmers.
These conjurers know how to render
this serpent rigidly unconscious by
pressing the nape of Its neck with a
finger. This act appears to throw the
reptile Into catulepsy, In wliich he Is ns
stiff as an Iron rod. Traces of something similar having been practiced ln
olden times may be found ln tlie Bible,
where Aaron made a serpent of his
rod or staff.

Why the Devil Bas Cloven Hoots.
Legeuds of the devil are quite common ln Irelutid, but the one which Is
most Interesting and least known perhaps is that wbicli tells wby the prince
of the Infernal regions has split hoofs,
like those of a cow beast Moore alludes to the legend In his story of St
Kevin and Kathleen nt Glendalough.
In tbat story Moore makes St. Kevin
throw his former ladylove ovor the
cliff In order to be rid of ber Importunities, but the peasants of the Glendalough district give the story a more poetical touch. Thoy Insist that It was
not Kathleen thnt was thrown over
the cliff, but that It was Satan, who
had assumed the form of the lady In
order to tempt the saint. The moment
the prince of evil toppled over tbe edge
of tbe yawning abyss he spread his batlike wings nnd sailed nway lu safety,
much to the surprise of the holy sairit
Later on the devil again attempted to
lay a snare for St. Kevin, but the saint
managed to get the nrcb fiend ou holy
ground, where, of course, he was helpless. While the devil was In this helpless condition Kevin sawed off bis legs
and attached cows' hoofs to the

That  Pirate Gold  Worth   Millions   is
Buried at Cocos  island is  Undoubtedly True.
Admiral Paillser has decided .Jo
have nothing to do with the new
treasure burning expedition to Cocos
island wnlch is being fitted out,-ln
America, says the London Dally- Ex-
press. ..'.;•
The Admiral, who accompanied
Earl Fitzwllllam on his expedition in
the Veronique, probably knows more
about, the location of the treasure than
auy other living man, and he is of the
opinion that ■ thia search party ls
doomed to failure from the outset.
An intimate friend of Admiral Paillser explained to an Express representative why, In his opinion, the new
expedition is likely to be unsuccessful.
"In t.ie flrst place," he suid, "the
chart possessed by the party is generally supposed to he false. It is one
of many which were sold to treasure-
seekers some years ago.
"Then, when the island Is reached
—and-that will be tho rainy season-
it is almost certain that the treasure
seekers will not bo allowed to work,
for a syndicate—of which, lt is re
ported, Mr. Harold tiicy, Mr. Mont
morency and Captain Kennedy are the
principals—holds u concession lrbni
the Costa Rica government I'or exploit
ing the whole islund, and until It gives
this up no one else can work there,
This syndicate has.been working Ihe
Island for the lust two years without
"lt was mainly on account of the existence of this concession tluiL Earl
■Fitzwilliam's expedition railed. Admiral Paillser told me that the Rail's
party found it impossible to interfere
with the syndicate, and could only
work by its consent ln certain parts
of the island.
"There is absolutely no doubt thai
two great treasure hoards are hidden
ln the Island. One, a pirate treasure,
is valued at betwees six and twelve
millions sterling, aud the other, known
as "Keating's Treasure"—is said to
be worth tbree millions.
"The former consisted of masses of
gold and sliver ornaments and gold
ingots. They were originally seized
by the Spanish in Mexco and Peru
and were beng carried away in Span
Ish galleons when a notorious pirate
Captain Don Pedro Bonita, attacked
and captured ths vessels, and con
cealed their freight in a secret cave
in Cocos Island.
"Keating's treasure wub obtained
much in the same way. The Span
lards, who were being driven out ol
Peru, collected all their valuables in
Lima, and placed them for safety on
the British ship Mary Dier. The
captain and crew, being overcome at
the sight of so much gold and silver,
murdered those In charge, and sailed
to Cocos island, where they also hid
their vast treasure. Retribution followed swiftly, however, for a Spanish
warship went in pursuit, anil finding
them on the island, executed seventeen of the crew.
"The Spaniards never found the
treasure, nnd the Captain of the Mary.
escaping to Canada, handed over the
secret of the hiding place before his
death to Captain Keating of Nova
Scotia. Keating twice visited the island, and on each occasion returned
home with £2,000 worth of gold.
"This treasure was also seen by a
man who was afterwards killed in the
Chilian war.
"The search for these two treasures
has now been going on for between
seventy and eighty years, and the only hope for their recovery is in the
work of an expedition fitted out with
all necessary appliances and men,
such as Lord Fitzwllliam's expedition,
and guided by those who have some
actual knowledge of the hiding

A European Deer Story.
Stories or deer with rain barrels or
water palls on tbelr heads are common
enough among Muine and Adirondack
guides, but It Is lelt for Europe to
come to the fore with a variant. Some
huntsmen near Innsbruck cftme upon
a stag with a ladder on its antlers.
in splto of this handicap, It made off
at great speed on seeing the men, leaping hedges and dashing through the
undergrowth as If quite unimpeded.
Its mad career was stopped, however,
when the ends of the ladder caught
between two trees. . Its struggles
wero so frantic at the approach of the
huntsman's dog that it. broke off part
of its antlers, und thus freed, made
goo.. Its escape. Tho ladder proved
to belling to a farmer, who had left
it standing against, one of his haystacks. While stealing the hay, the
stag had evidently upset the ladder,
which lind thus become fixed on Its
horns. Which goes to prove that
honesty is the best policy—even for
stags.—Springfield Republican.

A picture In The IVfanttoba Free Pre3S
of a bridge (2,300 feet limp; nnd 85 feet
high) which the Grand Trunk Pacific
has just completed over Pine Creek,
west of Portage Ia Prairie, Man., reminded a veteran of the Northwest rebellion of an Incident which took place
during the transport of troops westward
in 1885. The Montreal Garrison Artillery (as It was then known) was the
first regiment to make the all-rail trip
to Winnipeg over the C. P. R. They
laid over one Sunday at Jackflsh Bay,
on the sh ires of Lake Superior, and resumed their journey on the Monday
morning. When Ihey had got about fifty miles; tne conductor came through
the train and stated that they were approaching a new trestle which has Just
been completed. No trains had run
over ft, and the engineer was afraid
to trust his train with Its human freigSil
to the possible perils of tho trip. So
the order went forth'for the regiment
to march over this bridge, which was
about a quarter of a mile long and about
100 feet high. Of course, the men were
told to break step, and they did so. All
got across safely except one rather stout
man, who was a veteran of the Franco-
Prussian wnr, and he collapsed. He was
a heavy load to carry, but a fatigue
party was detailed to bring him across.
They started, and had just got hold of
him when they heard the train approaching. The trestle was on a curve,
and the train could not be seen until
It was nearly upon the party; but they
"hustled," and got their man acrossali
right. Then it was not the Alsatian who
collapsed, but his rescuers.
A Lover of Humanity.
The Countess of Aberdeen ls a lovei
of humanity. When Lord Aberdeen was
GovernOr-Genoral of Canada, from 1893
to 1898, the countess was probably the
most conspicuous and popular woman
ln Canada. She was born on the estate
in Inverness-shire ln 1857, and waa
married to Lord Aberdeen in 1877. In
1886 when Lord Aberdeen became Viceroy of Ireland she accompanied hiin to
a post that required diplomacy and
tact. It was at a time when the people were sullen and discontented, for
the food supply had failed. The warmth
of that lady's presence and her work on
their behalf soon won over the people,
who were aided materially. She was
directly responsible for a revival of the
lace-maklng Industry In Ireland, and
ordered thnt all guests to the Castle at
Dublin must wear Irish poplin. She
organized the Women's Liberal Federation, which has a membership of 80,000.
Now, once again, Lady Aberdeen ls the
first   lady of Ireland.

Sharks to Be Put Out of Business
—New Regulations.
The extraordinary Influx of settlers
Into the Northwest which has taken
place during the last three years has
subjected the homestead regulations to
a severe test and has demonstrated that
they are not suitable to present conditions. When there was little or no emigration to that country the land had
scarcely any value. It did not matter
that the soil was the best In the world
and was capable of yielding enormous
crops. People did not come and the
land could be had for a mere song. Under such circumstances the homestead
regulations were easily carried out and
there was no difficulty about their enforcement. No Incentive to fraud existed, and lf such occurred it was speedily detected. That was all changed
when the great fertility of the Northwest lands commenced to be noised
abroad, when the possibilities of successful farming began to be realized,
and when people started to come Into
the country at the rate of 200,000 a year.
The prlce__of land went up by leaps and
bounds, numerous laud companies were
formed ln the United States who purchased large blocks from Canadian railways and other concerns, and generally
land was In great demand.
The Land Shark's Chance,
This was the opportunity for the land
shark and for unscrupulous persons
who saw big profits In evading the law
and blanketing quarter sections on a
large scale. The history of the western
States abounds ln land frauds of the
most Ingenious description. Similar
methods were sought to be introduced
Into the Canadian Northwest, and with
a considerable degree of success. The
lands bought from railway companies
were tho alternate or odd-numbered [
sections. The even numbered sections j
were, under tho law, reserved for the
bona fide settler. This, however, did
not deter some speculative land companies and individual speculators from
securing even-numbered sections. They
got bogus homestead entries made under the system which had been In vogue
for years of allowing entries by proxy.
More than that, they secured the cancellation of genuine entries where the
homesteader had failed to fulfill his
Obligations, or ln some way or other
had not complied with the law. With
the adjoining even-numbered sections
ln his possession the speculator was
able to boost the price of his lands. He
would put a stiff price on an odd-numbered section and then say to the prospective purchaser: "Now, lf you will
take this I will throw ln the adjoining
even-numbored section also." As the
latter had been got for a merely nominal price the speculator could well afford to do so, and, of course, the Intending settler would Jump at the
chance. In this way the former would
be handsomely paid for the land which
he had obtained legitimately and also
for that which had come into his possession through fraud.
The New Regulations,
Recently new homestead regulations
oome into force which are designed to
prevent frauds of the kind described.
Hereafter homestead entries must be
made In person and no proxies will be
allowed. For cancellation of homestead
entry only one application will be received from any one person and he
must be a genuine homesteader. These
changes will get at the root of the evil.
Furthermore, an effort will be made to
set right some of the irregularities of
tho past. Frauds are reported to have
been especially rampant in Alameda,
Reglna and Yorkton agencies, the three
agencies nearest to the Manitoba and
the International boundaries. In these
districts the agents have received orders to prepare lists of all lands which
have been under entry for more than a
year and ln respect of which there has
been no extension of time granted.
A Thorough Weeding-Out.
When that time comes all the homestead Inspectors that are available in
Manitoba and also In Saskatchewan
and Alberta will concentrate , in the
three agencies named above, and armed
with the lists referred to will go over
the lands, township by township. Where
they find a quarter section which has

The Municipal Council of South Van-
con rer will meet this Saturday
Last week there appeared an article
dealing witb a complaint regarding
road work in the Municipality, made hy
Mr. Chipperfield. According to that
gentleman's statement, the Councillor
for Ward III., was getting him to do
work for 10c per chaiu which the previous Council had paid 20o. Councillor
Burgess is the Councillor referred to
and snys the statements in the ariicle
are misleading, nnd anyone interested
enough in the matter to do so are
referred to the Municipal books. Mr.
Chipperfield was given the work upon
motion of Couueil Burgess, al the same
rate of pay as the work had been do_e
previously, and was not told by Councillor BnrgeBB that SOc per chain meant
for "both sides" of the road. There
were 28 chaius instead of 18; the price
would havo been $11.20 instead of $7.20.
After much deluy and unsatisfactory
work, according to the Councillor,
another man was employed and the
entire cost was $15.75.
*We are once more in a position to
show you traps, etc., that we feel i
surcd will suit your requirements. The
cur unloaded last week, had some very
fancy jobs in it, which are beiug set up

Like a young bird and gulp down what*

Or, do you want lo know something of the

Most Intelligent and sensible people
now-a-days Insist on knowing what they
employ whether as food or as medicine.
Dr. Pierce believes thoy havo a perfect
right to Intist upon such knowledge. So he
publishes, broadcast and on each bottle-
wrapper, what his medicines arc made ol
and verifies It under oath. Tbl» he feels
he can well afford to do because thn more
tho Ingredients ot which bis medicines
are made are studied and understood tbe

be appreciated.

Dosses, Irregularities snd derangements,
giving rise to frequent headaches, backache, drugglng-down pain or distress in
lower abdominal or pelvic* region, accompanied, ofttlmes, with a debilitating,
pelvic, catarrhal drain and kindred symptoms of weakness, Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription Is a most efficient remedy.
It Is equally effective lo curing painful
periods, in jflvlng strength to nursing
mothers and in preparlug tho system of
the expectant mother for baby's cominj,
thus rendering childbirth safe and com-
psfatlvely painless. The "Favorite Prescription " Is a most potent, strengthening
tonic to the general system and to the
organs distinctly feminine In particular,
It Is also a soothing and Invigorating
nervine and cures nervous exhaustion,

"Making Good."
My boy, you thiuk that all you have to
do is "make a hit";
To catch the public eye and, car, then
evermore be "it";
fou think, one stroke sufficient for one
lifetime—msy be two;
That once a  mini   is  famous, there is
nothing left to do.
I hate to wake you, sonny, from yonr
iridescent dream,
And keep your Bkiff from drifting any
further down the stream;
But here's what I've  discovered: Ho
who's done the best he could
Is merely obligated   just to koop  on
"making good "
Ono littlo flight's a promise that you'll
spread your wings and soar;
One decent job's nn earnest that you'll
do a thousand more;
Ouo leap to public favor is a pledge
thut you will stay;
You cnu t do that unless you make a
new mark overy day.
Tho jump yon made to wealth or fame
will do less good than harm,
If, by your doBultory style, you provo
"a false alarm."
One well-directed arrow never made a
Robin Hood;
One winning stroke bnt binds you to
the task of "making good."
This world was not constructed for the
lazy man of dreams;
One flash is not a nugget—gold iB constant with its gleams;
The world keeps looking higher than
the lovol you've attained.
And thinks yon retrograding till 'tis
certain you have gained:
No stand still   will  it   tolorate; slide
back, and yon will seo
Your name among tho "has-beens" as
a harmless "used-to-be."
The staudard yon established when you
did tbe best you could
Was but your affidavit that you'd koep
on "making good."

I should say sIscerity, a deep, groat,
genuine sincerity, is the first characteristic of all meu in any way heroic Not
the sincerity that calls itself sincere; ah,
no, that is a very poor matter iudeed;—
a shallow braggart consoious sincerity
often self-conceit mainly. The Great
Man's sincerity js of the kind he can not
speak of, is not. conscious of; nay, I
suppose, he is. conscious rather of
insincerity; for what man can walk
accurately by the law of truth for one
day? No, the Great Man does not boast
himself sincere, far from tbat; perhaps
does not ask himself if he is so; I would
say rather.' his sincerity does uot depend
on himself; he can not help being
sincere I Tho groat Fact of Existence is
great to him. Fly as he will, he can not
get out of the awful presence.-of this
Reality. His mind is so made; he is
great by that, first of all. Fearful and
wouderfnl as Life, real as Death, is this
Universe to him. Though all men
sbonld forget its truth, nnd, and walk
in a vain show, he can not. At all
moments the Flume-image glares in
upon him; undeuiablo, there, there!—I
wish yon to take this as my primary
definition ot a Great Man. A little man
may have this, it is competent to all
men that God bas made: but a Great
man can not be withont it;

Real Estate!
Everyone knows that for anything
to become known, it must be talked
about. For an article to become
popular its virtue must be made the
subject of a public announcement.
That is advertising! 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 results mean good business,
and good business is what every
merchant advertises for. If he did
not wish to excel in his particular
line, he would not take the trouble
to write an advertisement, much
more pay for the costly newspaper
and magazine space.—British Advertiser.
