•men  slie  spoke tne    worn;  reluctantly  enough,   for   love's   voice    was
clamouring to her, "lie satislied!   He
loves vou."
"Judith!"
Ho started slightly and stared
down into her eyes with amazement
and a dawning recollection.
".Judith?" he echoed,
"Vcs," she breathed, "I—I found
her portrait in your coat pocket. A
ln'iiiitii'iil. u lovely woman, I saw
hor in a box ot the theatre in London.   Yes; Judith!'*
lie gated, questionlngly, anxiously
into her eyes, bull' dozed for a moment! then he laughed. And the
lnugh was almost sweeter in her ears
than his wordB of passionate love
and  longing.
"Judith! Judith Orme! You
found her portrait! I had forgotten
il; forgotten her!"
Tlio warm lilood flooded Nina's face
anil she drew a long sigh of relief.
".Iiulith? I thought I was in love
With her! In love! I did not know
what it meant till I met you. Nina,
my dearest, my—wlfol" His arms
cloned round her again. "I had forgotten ber! Judith!" bo laughed
again. "Sho is going to be marriod
—is married by this timo to—to another man! Judithl And you
thought—"
Nina's eyes overflowed with the
glad tears. Oh, it is well for women that thoy can jweep, even in
their Joy I
"What else could I think? And—
anel—you don't care for her now?"
she faltered, like any girl in her
toons, woman as she was.
He threw back hlfl head and laughed again, the laugh that waa sucb
sweet music to her.
"You only, dearest,'" hie said.
"And you never guessed it! Ah,
well, lf you could have seen me when
I found you had gone on that infernal raft; if you could have seen
me when its remains floated ashore
with your cap! The dear littlo cap!
Oh, Nina! I waB mad with grief; I
have beon more than half mad since.
All the world could not console mc
for tho loss of youl And all the
timo you were thinking I was ln
love with—Judithl"-
"Forgive mel" she murmured.
"But what else could I think?—her
portrait, thero in your coat, over
your heart!—and knowing that you
had been forced Into the marriage—"
"I loved you then, before then!"
he said, earnostly. "It was on your
account that I hesitated, pleaded
with Fleming, made the raft. I
thought you disliked me, and I loved
you too well to get you against your
will."
"How blind we werel'' she murmured, regretfully; for how much
thoir blindness had cost them!
"Blind as young puppiesl But our
eyes aro opened now, dearest! It is
all right!'
"Your shoulder, your wound— Do
you remember tho fight with the Lascar?" she whispered, with a shudder.
"Yes, and how gently you dressed
tho wound; you little guessed bow
tha touch of your dear fingers thrilled through me!" he responded, "ily
beautiful!" He gazed into her ryes,
raised shyly but lovingly to his.
"To think of your being a literary
swell! A dramatic author! And to
think of my looking on at tht play,
and not knowing that my dear, clever wife had written itl My wife!
Nina, you haven't kissed me yet!
Kiss im now! Just that I may realize that you are actual flesh and
blood, and .not one of the visions
of you thaf have come to me so of-
ton in my dreams."
-he raised her head and kissed
him, and did not tell him that she
had already done sol
"And now, dearest, touching tha
future—"
He started at his own words. Future,! Why, he had destroyed the future that belonged to hor, had given
away his birthright, tho title, the
wealth that should belong to her as
his wife! It bad been the act of a
madman; but—the act had been accomplished, and could not be undone,
Sho nestled against him and laughed.
"I am too happy in the present to
think of tho I'm ure," she aaid ln a
low voico.
"You—you don't mind being the
wifo of—of a poor man, a man of no
nccount?" he faltered.
-Sho looked at him with surprlso.
"You forget tho gold—Vane!" she
said.
Tho tone of her "Vana" thrilled
him.
"Ah, yes, of course!" he responded, with relief. "Yes; yes! I'd forgotten the gold. No wonder, with
such a treasure in my armsl We'll
go to England, form a company—"
Ht stopped and frowned. How could
he go to England, ho who had exiled himself from civilization, who was
dead to tho world, his world. "You
—you wouldn't liko to stay here?"
be suggested, scarcely knowing what
to say.
"Anywhere—with you!" ihe murmured.
Suddenly athwart this dream of
happiness enme a voice calling, "Decima—Miss   Woodl'"
Nina started, "Lord Sutcombo!"
she whispered almost guiltily,
"Ah, poor Lord Sutcombe!" murmured Vane, gravely. "Yes, I can
pity liim, Nina! To love you—and
loso you! Don't I know what that
means!"
Sutcombe came upon them hurriedly and stopped short, looking from
ono to thu other, tho color coming
and going in his faco. Vano made a
dash  at the revelation.
"Lord S'ltconibe—Nina—Miss Wood
—wo have met—sho Is my wlfol"
Sutcombo started; then ht remembered the pnper and tho ring he
had seen Nina weeping over, and realized the truth—and his own absolute, irrevocable loss. He stood i'or
a moment, or two i|uit,o silent, thon
ho cume forward and held out his
hand.
"I—I congratulate you," ho said,
simply, and not oven Vano could
appreciate tho effort, the words, the
tone, cost him; but perhnps Nina
could.
She laid her hand on his arm and
looked up at him through a mist of
tears.
"We—we-owe—our happiness to
you," she whispered. "But for you I
should not have come back to the
island—"
Sutcombe patted her hand in silence for a moment,  then ht said:
"We must go back to my Bister;
she  is  anxious."
"Yes, let us go," said Vane.
Sutcombo would have preceded
thom, but Nina walked resolutely by
his side; and so, all together, thoy
came to Vivienno in tho saloon. Nina flew to her and hid her faco on
her bosom, and Vivienne starod ovor hor at the tall, rough-looking
man, whoso grave face had already
tho glow of his now found happiness
in It.
"Vivienno—oh, Vane, I can't tell
her! You!" she broko down.
Vano camo forward.
"It is soon told," he said, gently.
"This lady to whom you and your
brother hnve boon so good—Qod bless
you for it!—and I are busbar il and
wife. Wo were marriod on this island
a long time ago. My cams, her
name, ls Mannering. I am Vant Mannering—M
Ht stopped, aghast, at tho slip of
the tonguo, and was more aghast
still when he saw the brother and
sister exchange glances. He was glad
that Nina had—like a good housewife—turned to the fire to see after
the supper.
"Vane Mannering!" exclaimed
Sutcombe. "Are you related to the
Lesborough family? There was a Vans
Mannering—tht last earl, who perished in a flre at Lesborough
Court—"
Vano signed to him warningly, and
Sutcombe, embarrassed and speechless, stopped and stared at him.
Vivicnne made a show of helping
Nina, and presently Nina shyly invited them to supper. They sat
down, and Vane told the Sutcombos
of the wreck, and the story of the
marriage, Nina sitting near him with
bent head and face that grew hot
and pale by turns; and the Sut-
combes listened with an amazement
which grow still more intense when
Vane abruptly said, as if he had suddenly arrived at a decision:
"And now for something else. Just
now you asked me tf I were connected with tho Lesborougha. I am. I
am the man who was supposed to
have been killed by the fire at tht
Court!"
"Supposed! Thon—then you art
Lord Lesboroughl" exclaimed Sutcombc.
Vane stretched out his hand and
got Nina's and held it tightly, and
looked tenderly and reassuringly Into
her startled oyes.
"Yes," ho admittod gravely. "It It
a strange business.  Listen!"
Amidst their breathless silence ht
told them the story of the accident,
the sacrifice ho had made for Julian.
"What was tho use of the title,
tht estate, to me?" he said, simply.
"I had lost Nina forever, as I
thought; for evon if she Were alive,
I thought she had risked death rather thnn remain allvo with mo. Life
was over for nie; such a life as that
which I should have had to lend was
Impossible. And Julian would make
a ten thousand times better l.unl
of Lesborough—it was only pushing
the clock on a little, I thought! I
should never marry—ovon if 1 had
been free to do so, for, you see, I
loved niy wife here, wife or no wifo.
And so'I disappeared that Julian
Shore might reign in my sti'ad! It
wasn't much of a sacrifice; and it
wus lessened b.v the fact that tho
poor soul, the poor de-i\f and dumb
woman, who was so devoted to him,
had given her lifo to save mino. it
wus some kind of n return, acknowledgment, of, her heroism. I could
make the inusler she loved rich and
happy. You see? You think 1 was
mad; but—1 hadn't found my wife
again," and he colored and looked
round. "She is my wife, Lord Sut-
oombo.  Toll her so!"
Sutcombe nodded gravely.
"Yes," he said, "I am a barrister,
though I've never practiced; and,
ttrangoly enough, whilu 1 was rending for tho bur, I studied tho marriage laws. The marriage was legal!"
"Thank you!" said Vane, with his
tyes On Nina's face. .She rose, und
Without a word Vivienne nnd she
loft the saloon. At the door sho
paused for an Instant nnd looked at
Vane, lie had stinted to his font,
hut, before the look In her eyes, lit
sunk down nguin.
"She is not satislied," ho snld,
almost Inaudibly, rh tho door closti
on thein.
Sutcombo shook hln bead. "It Is
only natural. You must bo married
in due form. Though, mind, this oilo
Is legal und absolutely valid!"
"llut—but—there Is another mat-
tor," continued Sutcombc. "Ilo you
mind tolling mo ngnin about tht—
accident, tht fire? It is a painful
subject—but I havt a reason for asking."
Vano repeated tbe account of that
awful scent in the Wizard's or
Witch's Room, and Sutcombc stopped him now and again to ask for
somo dotall; then he said, very grav*
Jy:
"And you call lt an accident?"
"Carta—dyl" responded V^ne, with
■urprlso. "The poor woninn upset
the sfove, furnace, whatever you call
tt, and the burning spirit ran over
the floor and caught."— He shud-
dered,
"The flre? Yes, that was an accident," safd Sutcombe, still more
gravely, his faco pals, his eyes fixed
tnrnest.lv on Vano. "But the lur—IH
which nearly suffocated you? The
floor waa loWccd—'•'
"It locktd with a spring.:'
"The ropes of tho ventilator gave
way in your hands. Your cousin, Mr.
guilnn Short, did not  return—"
"Good Oortl What ls it you are
suggesting?'* cried Vane, white to the
tips, not only ot the suggestion, but
at hit own Vague aonse that it miglri
be true.
"Murder," replied Sutcombe.
Vano foil back and regarded hint
with horror-strlckon eyes.
"Murdorl Julian—Julian plot, plummy death! Oh, you don't know himl
He is incapable of—" The sweat
stood thickly on his brow.
Sutcombe looked at him steadily
"You had never met your cousin
before   i-*t day at   the   Uw_er'e.
tiU-w ridihills' aoout null," ne safd.
"I know mo"e than  you!"
"You!" Sa'd  Vane.
"Yfls; bocahso I havo not come u_-
ex-sr the spell of his presence, thu'

\ unbiassed, untrammelled by the influence of his pnisonulity, can view

V'ait! Think ho'v much he had to
guin b.v your deilth! A peerage, the
•■.state,  the woim'n he loved!"
"But—buC" stniiimercd Vane,
SSgerly, "1 was not ln their wayl
SShe did not caro—I did not cure lur
her.    She knew i*;l"
Sutcombe smiled grimly. "She had
•tared for you; 1 am not so sure,
from all you toll me, that she did
not still care. At any rate, l**e
thought so. Y'ou were terribly in h'S
way, Lesborough, and he—tried tn
remove you! Why did that poor woman come bnck to that infernal
room, and by the other door? Sht
s ispected her mnster, as I suspocj,
and she came to save you from death
ond  him from—murder!"
Vune sprung to his feet.
"My  Ood!"   hu cried,   "I  cai't,   I
won't believo It! I dare not! Julian,
niy own flutih nnd blood!"
"More kith thnn kind!" murmured
Sutcombo, "Heaven grant that you
may be right and 1 wrong, llut your
duty is clear. You must go to —ng-
lnnd and discover the truth for yourself. (!o secretly, concealing your
identity—"
"1 will!" snld Vune, resolutely.
"And I'll prove you're wrong! Yes,
I'll prove it to your satisfaction,
Julian try to—to murder me!" Ho
laughed, but the lnugh had a note
uf dreud and doubt  in it.
Thoy sat and talked for nonic time;
then  Vane said ho must go.
"1 can't leave the boat; I'm not
certain of the tide," he said. "I'll
come around to-morrow, und we'll
talk it over. Of course, not a word
to the ladies!"
They shook hands and parted, but
neither slept. Vane lay awake looking up at the sturs and thinking of
Nina, and Sutcombo paced the saloon and carried on the light witb
bis disappointment  and loss
Going to the spring quite early the
next morning, he was surprised to
find Vivienne seated on tho beach a
little way from the ladies' hut. She
beckoned to him, and when he camo
within hearing hold up her linger
warningly.
"Hush!" sho whispered. "She is
usleep. She has been awake all the
night, but has just fallen off. We
have been tulking; sho has been telling uie everything, and I hnve boon
thinking. Sutcombe"—she paused
and bit her lip—"you are suro tho—
the marriage was quite legal?"
"Quite," he said, gravely, and
looking awny  from her.
"Then bend down; I—I want to
whispor,  Sutcombe."
With hor faoe against his, she whis-
peied something in his ear. He
stinted and drew a. long breath, then
nodded assent ingly.
"Yes!" he suid, in a low voice.
"We will do it. It—it is a clever
idea of yours, Vivienne. How did
you come to think of it?"
"I am a womun, dear!,'1 she said,
"llut you will have to be quick—
there is no time to lose."
"1 will manage my part, if you Will
do yours," he said, and he laid his
hand on her shoulder. "To see her
hupp}—it ie all 1 ask!'1'
The tears cuino to her eyes and
sho put up her hnnd and caressed his,
with the familiar gOBturo. lt was
not necessary for her to Bay anything.
lt wus Iato when Nina awoko—
awoke to lind that hor dream that
Vane was restored to her was true!
—and Vivienno was standing bosido
the bed with a cup of toa ln hor
hand.
"You lazy bones!" she said.
"We've all had breakfast, and Sutcombe hus gone off to his work—how
pretty you look when you blush,
Decima, for it must be '1-ciina' for
me still! At any rate, until I can
get used to the 'Nina.' 1 like tho
way he suys it—Nina, Ninu!"
Nina hung hor head and blushed all
the rosier.
"Mr. Mannering, or, rather, Lord
Lesborough, has gone back to the
boat to mend a sail, or something
of the kind. Ancl Sutcombe snys, do
you mind making some bags for him
this morning? He particularly wunts
them nt once!"
"Why, of course!" snid Nina, eagerly, "(live mc the stull! I'll licgin
thein this very moment. Are you
sure everything i.s right in the saloon?" she nsked, like a careful
housekeeper.    "What ure you doing?"
"Quite sure!" replied Vivienne.
"Whut am 1 doing? Oh, only tidying up a littlo, Shull we take the
bags down to the clump of trees In
the hollow? Or, perhaps you'd rather stay here, in case he Bhould
come!"
Nina Jumped up with suspicious
promptness.
"Come along; it will be shady
there," she snld.
Tbey went to tho spot of which
Vivienne hud spoken. It was a littlo
dip in the valley, from which tha
coast line could not be seen; and as
thny worked Vivienno ontlced Nina
Into again telling her the strange
story of tlm wreck, nnd all that had
followed It; and they wero so absorbed ln thn recital that, though Nina
glanced round occasionally rather
wistfully, itho morning slipped away.
Presently there sounded a step; but
Nina's eyes did not brighten; for it
wnn not the one for which sho was
will ting—and longing. It was Sutcombe.

Ther Are Not Blglily Amntlig Md
Are Not Indelicate.
The form of amusement of a dramatic nature that most interests the
traveler ln Japan ls tbo geisha dance,
also tho kagura, or common religious
dance, and the adzuma-mal, a religious
dauce performed In the aueient Shimo-
(iiuno Shinto temple nenr ' Kyoto.
These dances are not particularly
amusing to witness, though all sights
of the kind are more or less amusing
when witnessed for the flrst time. The
best geisha dancing takes place lu
Kioto, the next best ln Tokyo, but so
called geisha dances nu.y be seen in
several of the large towns.
Almost more Interesting to see, however, are the religious dances. In the
kagura, for instance, the dancer usually wears a loose white chemise garment, a pair of flapping trousers, generally of a bright red color, and n long,
transparent covering formed like a
clonk and ornamented with designs resembling crests. Her hnlr hangs down
her back lu a single tross, flowers adorn
hor forehead, and her face la besmeared
with a white compound, snld to consist
chiefly of white lend. In her hand she
holds a bunch of small bells that ts not
unlike a child's toy. This she shakes at
Intervals during the dance. Sometimes
several girls dance at one time, but lu
every caso their movements arc accompanied by a mournful, sacred chant
and by a tune played upon a drum und
flute by priests. It Is wrong to suppose, however, as many Europeans
who havo visited Japan do suppose,
that the mlknkoodorl dance Is Indecent.
About the genuine geisha dance there
Is nothing evon Indelicate or suggestive.—St. James' Gazetto.
AGENCY OF PAIN.
HE SET THE EXAMPLE.
How  xx Montenegrro  Prince   Got Hia
Subjects  to Work.
Prince Nicholas of Montenegro was
obliged to follow Peter the Great's example In order to make bis subjects
work at all. The haughty Montenegrins have from time Immemorial been
accustomed to look down upon the mechanic arts of Industry as vile and degrading. Prince Nicholas besought
them with all his eloquence to learn
the necessary arts of life, but all lu
vain. He used every method, Including the "argumentum bacullnum," or
"paternal" method, with a stick, to
which the great Peter was so addicted.
Even this argument fell flat. Then the
prince tucked up his sleeves, betook
himself to a smithy and hammered
Iron for a day. This method proved
effectual. The Montenegrins camo to
the conclusion that tho work of the
smithy was not incompatible with their
dignity. Shoemaklng, however, they
could not be Induced to look upon as
other than degrading. Persuasion falling, the monarch turned cobbler. This
was too much for the Montenegrins.
Whon they saw him put his hand to
the waxed thread and the shoe leather
bis faithful lieges gathered round upon
their knees and besought him not to
sully his royal fingers by touching the
accursed thing. "Beat us all," they
cried, "only do not do yourself such
dishonor." Tbo prince paid no attention and worked till nightfall. Next
day the cobblers' shops were full of
Montenegrins eager to enroll themselves as apprentices to tho trade
which Nicholas had ennobled by his
own example.—London Mall.
Shakespeare's Indifference to Fame.
Shakespeare never took any trouble
to hand himself down to fame and posterity. Superbly indifferent to renown, writing only as tho sun shines
and as the winds blow—because it was
the work ho was created for—he dashed
off those marvelous productions, aud
when they had accomplished their object of paying his current expenses
and pleasing the public of hi t.me he
retired to Stratford-on-Avon, utterly
careless, as It seems, whether his splendid plays lived In tho memories of men
or died out of recollection. It was part
of his royal and lofty nature, thiB large
Indifference, so grandly contrasted
with the modern yearning to be advor-
tised, tbe latter day ache to be lauded
and remembered.—Loudon Chronicle.
Not Their Fault.
General Schofleld was once describing In Washington a certain retreat of
cavalry. 'I call It a retreat," he said,
"but I should really coll lt a rout." Ho
smiled. "In this retreat," he went on,
"the commanding general, as his
charger tore like tbe wind along, turned
to an aid wbo galloped besldo him and
eald, 'Who nre our roar guurdV The
aid, without ceasing for an Instant to
belabor his panting steed, replied,
'Those who have the worst horses,
sir.'".

Postage on British Magazlnfea.
It Is understood that Hon. Rodolpht
Lemleux, Postmaster-General, has begun negotiations with the British postal authorities looking to a reduction ol
postal rates on magazines from Britain
to Canada. If successful the movement
would have the effect of causing the circulation of British literature in Canada ln greater degree than at present,
and tend still further to develop British sentiment ln the Dominion. The
opinion Is entertained that Hon. Sydney

representations made to him, and thai

Tht   Cauae   and   Not   the   Effect   •(
Physical In-lain—iintlon.
Inflammation and pain are so closely
connected that a person who feels pain
In the throat often complains of having a sore throat without examining
the throat to see if It Is really Inflamed.
Hitherto inflammation has been taken
as a cause and palu as its Inevitable
effect, but according to a remarkable
Investigation by Professor Spiess, reported in the Munich Medlzinlsche Wo-
chenschrlft, or Medical Weekly, the
pain ls the cause and tbe Inflammation
is the effect.
If the pain is calmed by anaesthetics
the Inflammation also subsides. For
example, Inflammation of tbe mucous
membrane of the nose and throat can
be cured by anaesthetics, and if an
anaesthetic is injected Into an Incipient
boll there is little subsequent Inflammation. In the treatment of Inflammatory diseases, therefore, painlessness ls
an object well worth Btrlvlng for.
Spiess regards tbo cessation of the
nasal secretion of Influenza during
sleep as n proof that the Inflammation
of the mucous membrane Ib arrested
by the Insensibility of Bleep, and ho
explains In n similar manner tlie often
observed henllng of wounds without
Inflammation In Insane persons.
As nn anaesthetic Spiess first employed orthoform, afterward novocain,
a substitute for cocaine, the poisonous
character of which makes It unsuitable
for use.
The Inflammation following operations on the tonsils, which Is ordlnnrlly
very severe, wns nlmost wholly prevented by applications of orthoform
before nnd after the operation. The
tnflnminntlon as well as tbe pain of
wasp stings, mosquito bites nnd slight
wounds wns prevented by rubbing
them with nn aqueous solution of the
anaesthetic.
It ls too soon to nttempt an explanation of these remarkable results. The
Inflammation appears to be a result of
n reflex nction transmitted by the sensory nerves. The anaesthetics used
should therefore be such as affect those
nerves alone and have no Influence on
the vasomotor nerves, whlcb regulate
the supply of blood.—Scientific American.
Terrapin Fonnd Alive In Aehes.
Oue of the strangest Incidents following the great fire wns the finding of
a live terrapin in the ruins of n building nt the corner of Fowoll and Washington streets. Miss Charlotte Estes of
1734 Lnguna street and Miss Lilly
Plowman of Sydney, Australia, went
to the ruins of the Normal school,
whoro Miss Estes wus a student, and
while Investigating conditions noticed
something move In the ashes In a basement. Miss Estes climbed down and
removed the ashes and debris and
found the terrnpln. It was so active
thnt when plnced on the ground near
wnter It ran Into the bay and swam
away. This animnl had undoubtedly
pnssed through the flre and lived for
ten dnys In tho ashes of the basement
ln which It was found.—San Francises

The Handsomest Man In Europe.
Goethe was pronounced the handsomest man of Europe. He wns a little over six feet ln height, but so well

whole nppenrance commanding.
THE TIDY TADPOLE.
Hon   Thla   Cheerful   Little   Cannibal
E_nta and Develops.
A wonderful spirit of tidiness seems
to pervade the tadpole world. They
always eat whatever bas become useless—their own eggs, tbelr superfluous
companions. Even those who are only
weakly are cleared out of the way and
the victims take it all us a matter of
course. I bave disturbed a strong
member of tbe community just as be
had begun to dine off the tall of a
weaker brother, but the sufferer has
not troubled to escape—he Blmply waited till tlie fratricide returned to compter.* his deadly work.
For some time there ls no grave
change ln the tadpoles. They simply
grow and become so far transparent
that their internal mechanism, which
consists of one coll of Intestines, ls
plainly visible. When, however, they
are about three months old a careful
observer can distinguish a tiny foot
on either side of the base of the tall.
These grow slowly, but seem unable
to move Independently until shortly
bo/ore the border lnnd Is passed which
leads to perfect frogbood. Tho hind
legs have reached their full size before
the front ones nppenr, nnd, while the
feet grow slowly, tlio hnnds are rendy
■undo and cnn be used at once. For a
dny or two they cnn be seen under the
B-ii beforo they venture forth, and
their possessor ls very restless nnd excited. He rushes madly nbout, Jostling bis I'onirndes, nnd no doubt being
voted a bore; then a more vigorous effort breaks tlie skin and the tiny hand
and arm appear.
There seems somo rule about the
order of precedence here, as there Is
when the whiskers go, for last year my
tadpoles, almost without exception,
bnd their right hands some hours before the left, while ou previous occasions I havo had nn entirely left

Conditions Vnder Which Ships' Sails
Soutetlmes  Slnff.
Some curious facts have been noted
with regard to tbe sound conducting
qualities of ships' Bulls. When rendered concave by a gentle breeze, the
widespread sails of a ship are said to
be excellent conductors of sound.
A ship was once sailing along the
const of Brazil, far out of sight of
laud. Suddenly several of the crew,
while walking along the deck, noticed
that when passing and repassing a
particular spot they nlways heard with
great distinctness the sound of bells
chiming sweet music, ns though being
rung but n short distance away.
Dunifounded by this phenomenon,
they quickly communicated the discovery to their shipmate-, but none of
tbem was able to solve the enigma as
to the origin of theso seemingly mysterious sounds which came to them
across the water.
Months afterward, upon returning to
Brazil, the c.cw determined to satisfy
their curiosity. Accordingly they mentioned the circumstance to their
friends and were Informed thnt nt the
time when the sounds were heard the
bells lu the cathedral of San Salvador,
on the coast, had been ringing to celebrate a feast held In honor of one of
the saints.
Their sound, wonderful to relate, favored by a gentle, steady breeze, h
traveled a distance of upward of
miles over the smooth water and bad
beeu brought to a focus by the sallB at
tho particular locality ln which the
sweet sounds were first heard.
This Is but oue of Reveral Instances
of n similar klud, trustworthy authorities claiming that this same music Is
often beard under somewhat the same
circumstances nnd especially ln a moisture laden atmosphere.—London Tit-
Bits.	
Time Has Tested It.—Timo tests
all things, that which is worthy lives,
thnt which is Inimical to man's welfare perishes. Time has proved Dr.
Thomas' Eclectrlc Oil. From a few
thousand bottles ln the early days of
Us manufacture the demand has risen
so that now the production ls running

"Dear mo," replied the Coroan official,
"you look very young for that. How do
you account for It?" "By the fact,"
was tho reply, "that I have bean traveling for a month ln the supeit oilman
of his Majesty's dominions." Finally
the president said: "I presume you are

A CURIOUS INDIAN TALE.
Gtn.
Kurokl a Reincarnation of Lata
Sir Heotor Macdonald,
A curious talt ls going tht rounds ol
the bazaars In India. It ls believed by
every native that Gen. Kurokl, the marvelous Japanese commander, ls no other tban Sir Hector Macdonald. Many
people hava never believed that ths
"Vllilant English general Is dead, and
licit long ago there appeared ln Tha
London Times an offer of a reward ol
$5,000 to anyone who had seen hia dead
body.
It It also a fact that Sir Heotor was
ones Invited to go to Japan to train th«
Japaneie army, and he actually mentioned lt to Lord Roberts. No honoi
has ever been publicly ibestowed on
Kurokl, who appears to havt vanished
as suddenly and mysteriously as ht appeared.
Evan tht Japanest, with all their reticence, confessed to a correspondent
that Kurokl had much foreign blood ln
him, and one Amarloan Journalist declared ho was a Dutchman.

The money spent In Germany on
drink ls three times the cost of the army and navy together ond more than
seven times the cost of their primary
education. Its amount Is almost equal

and so the German people, by leaving
off drink for a year and a month, could

PILLS
Don't ne Touchy.
There aro some people nlways looking out for slights. They cannot pay
a visit, they cannot receive n friend,
they cannot carry on the intercourse
of tho family, without suspecting somo
offense is designed. They are terribly
touchy. If they meet an acquaintance
ln the streot who happens to be preoccupied with business, they attribute
his abstraction to some motive personal to themselves and take umbrage
accordingly. They lay on others the
fault of their irritability. A fit of Indigestion makes them seo impertinences in everybody tbey como in eon-
tact with. Innocent persous who never dreamed of giving offense nre astonished to find some unfortunate word
or some momentary taciturnity mistaken for Insult. Of course, such a
mental condition is due to too much
thinking nbout self and to nn exaggerated self esteem, evon though unconscious. The best remedy ls to persistently put thoughts of self out of mind.
Find something more absorbing and
more elevating to think nbout If you
aro one of the touchy ones, end you'll
soon lose tbe habit.
A Storm Above the Clouds.
Professor John Wise, the eminent
aeronaut, who lost his life In making
a balloon ascension on Sept. 28, 1879,
gave the following description of a
thunderstorm which he once viewed
from the "top side:" "The view of a
stormcloud from above ls one of the
most Interesting sights ever beheld by
mortal man. A storm viewed from
nbove the clouds has the appearance
of ebullition. Tbe upper surface of the
cloud is bulged upward and outward
and has the resemblance of a vast sea
of boiling, upheaving snow. Immediately above the stormeloud the air Is
not so cold as lt ls ln tbe clearer atmosphere above or ln the cloud Itself.
The falling of the rain can bo distinctly beard, making a noise like a waterfall over a precipice. The thunder
beard above a stormeloud Is not loud,
and the flashes of lightning appear like
streaks of intensely white light ou the
surface of the gray colored vapor."
A Life  of Freedom.
People sometimes think how delightful lt would be to be quite free. But
a fish, as Ruskin says, is freer than a
man, and, as for a fly, It is "a black
Incarnation of freedom." A life of so
called pleasure and self Indulgence ls
not a life of real happiness or true
froedom. Far from It. If we ouce begin to give way to ourselves we fall
under a most Intolerable tyranny. Other temptations nre ln some respects
Ilka that of drink. At first, perhnps, lt
-.veins delightful, but there is bitterness at the bottom of the cup. Men
drink to satisfy the desire created by
previous indulgence. So it Is In other
things. Repetition Boon becomes a
craving, not" a pleasure. Resistance
grows more nnd more painful. Yielding, which at flrst, perhaps, afforded
some slight and temporary gratification, soon censes to givo pleasure and,
even lf for a time It procures relief,
ere long becomes odious itself.
Died Standing.
The Incident of Rntlsbon—a French
officer, though mortally wounded, rides
back to Napoloon, reports the capture
of the city and then falls from bis saddle dead—ls paralleled by a story of
Gettysburg. An offlcor of the Sixth
Wisconsin regiment walked up to Colonel Dawes, wbo was In command-
Colonel Bragg was ln Washington on
crutches. The officer was very erect
and very pale. Dawes and Doubleday
both thought he was coming with a report or to receive orders. But he was
not. He had a favor to nsk. "Colonel," he said to Dawes, "will you toll
tho folks at homo I diod os a man and
a soldier should?" Thou he unbuttoned
bis coat. His wholo side was shot
away. It was his last effort. He died
standing,
A Ifoae Tax.
A "nose tax" wns In the ninth century exacted by the Danes from the
householders in Ireland. It was so
called not because lt was levied on
noses, but from the fact that a failure
to pay was punished by slitting the
nose from tip to eyebrow. It was continued during thirteen yoars, when tbe
householders, objecting to this treatment of their nasal ornaments, rose In
rebellion, massacred all the Danes Iu
Ireland and put an eud to tbe nose
slitting.

The Slse of the Sun.
The sun, provided we measure only
the disk seem with tbo smoked glass, is
8(10,000 miles ln diameter—I. e„ 108
earths could be -comfortably ranged
side by Bide across tbe disk. To cover
tbe surface would require many thousands. To fill the Interior we should
need 1,300,000. On a smaller scale we
might represent the sun by a ball two
feet ln diameter and tho earth by a
good sized grain of shot. Let the sun
be hollowed out, then place the earth
at Its center and let the moon revolve
about lt at Its real distance of 240,000
miles. There would yet remain nearly
200,000 miles of space between the
moon's orbit and tba Inclosing shell of
the sun. Indeed to journey from one
side of the sun to the other, through
the center, would take oue of our swift
express trains nearly two and a half
years. So vast a globe must be heavy.
Since Its density ls only one-quarter
that of the earth It only weighs as
much as 832,000 earths, or two octll-
llous of tons. The attraction of gravity
on Its surface would cause a man
whose weight was ISO pounds to weigh
two tons.    .

CUSTOMER WORTH HAVING.
United States Finds In Canada Large
Demands  For Her Produott.
Tht United States sold Canada ln
1904 exports to the value of $166,000,-
000. This amount constituted more than
62 per cent of the whole Canadian Imports, but was only 11 per oent. of the
foreign exports of the United States,
says Charles M. Pepper, special agent
of the United States Department of
Commerce and Labor, ln a report on
his study of Dominion trade conditions.
Besides selling goods to Canada, Mr.
Pepiper says that 25,000 settlers went
from the United States to Its northern
neighbor from January to October,
1805, and that the value of their effects
was $10,000,000. This number of emigrants from the United States ls less
than for tht two preceding years.
The new wheat fields of tht Dominion's great Northwest are the attraction to those seeking new homes ln Canada, and lt Is to that soctlon tht United States should look for the development of existing and the creation of
new markets of trade. Tht food, clothing, and farm Implements to which
these Bettlers have been accustomed ln
ths United States constitute ttta products whioh may bt sold them tht
easiest  ln   Canada.
Tht wheat yield In Canada last season was upwards of 90,000,000 bushels,
or approximately equal ts that of the
State of Kansas. A produotlon of 150,-
000,000 bushels by 1910 Is foreshadowed, provided crop conditions oontlnue
favorable and harvest hands oan bt obtained.
Railroad construction In tht Northwest Is given as another source of new
population and consequently of widened markets. After describing the new
transcontinental project known as the
Grand Trunk Pacific, and the plans for
railways to ths Hudson Bay, the statement ls made that probably before an
outlet Is afforded for wheat by either
of thesa routes trafllo will bt diverted
south and east over railroads ln the
United States, one agency being the
United States settlers.
Mr. Pepper fixes the total consumption of iron and steel and their products
for tht current year at 1,000,000 tons.
Ht says that for the last three years
tht Importations have be«n $42,000,000
annually and that tbt United States
has supplied tl per oent. ot these. It
ls staled that the steel rail mills at
Sidney, Nova Scotia, and at Sault Ste.
Maria, Ontario, art now turning out
several hundred tons dally. Though
thero sire several successful mills for
making rods and wlrt nails, there still
sl much dependence ln wire products on
the United States.
In textiles the report says that the
Dominion ls making advances, yet the
time ls distant when the Importation of
foreign goods win cease. Though many
factories havt been established ln Canada for manufacturing boots and shoes
and though ths machinery ls from the
United States, the report states that
this Is still one of the best markets for
American manufacturers to cultivate.
Not a factory of any kind ls built
In the Dominion but that the Installation of tha plant is made largely from
tha United States.

Matthew Lodge, Jr., who was with

Ablttlbl: "The country ls extensively
timbered, except here and thero ln
burnt stretches and muskeg, but It ls
moro of the pulpwood class than other
lumber. The pulpwood forests are practically Inexhaustible, and pulpwood,
you know, means money. Tht forest
which was despised 50 years ago by
lumbermen, ls now worth more than
the forest of 50 years ago. It Is prao-
tlcally a country of extensive waterfalls, and those waterfalls will become
Invaluable In the development of the
puip-maktng Industries. On tho Black
River within a strotoh of fourteen
miles there aro no less than ten falls
of Industrial valuo nnd utility. The
Black Rivor ls not a very wide river,
but lt Is a vory deep river, with a considerable flow of water."
A Battle In the Sea.
Did you ever see blueflsb charge a
school of menhaden nt sea? That ls
something worth seeing. The blueflsb
throw their lines forward until they almost surround the menhaden, aud they
attack them Hank aud rear. The menhaden fairly mako the water boll ln
their efforts to escape, whilo all arouud
the enemy ls ot them tearing relentlessly. Into all this commotion comes
a great shark. It's a picnic for the
shark, a school of menhaden all herded
up for Its benefit. It swims leisurely
Iuto the midst of them, opens Its mouth
and takes ln half a dozen menhaden at
a gulp. It swims around aud bites out
half a dozen moro from the school. It
gorges Itself without effort But the
menhaden are not nearly as much disturbed by tbe presence of the monster
swimming about among them as they
are by the charging blueflsb. The shark
takes half a dozen fish or more at a
bite, while the blueflsb only bites a
piece out of a single fish, but there ls
only one shark, while there may be
thousands of blueflsh plunging and
tearing incessantly and killing and
maiming at every stroke. Tbe shark's
a brute, but under such circumstances
the menhaden have less of fear tban
they hare of contemot for him.

Saving Sense of Humor,
In his recent Iccturo ln Toronto on
Victor Hugo, Prof. E. Howard Griggs
said: Hugo was singularly without i
sense of humor, the deeper, graver hu
mor of character whleh Shakespeare
possessed. It ls Impossible, said Mr.
Grlgg, to live a moral lifo without a
sense of humor. One cannot appreclato
moral Incongruity without It, nor consequently oongrulty. Everything is
taken on the same plane. Tho personal
whim ls mistaken for a matter of conscience.
"Blessed ls the man who can laugh
at himself. Cursed Is the man who
luughs ut himself all the time. He who
doos not take himself seriously at all,
and he who takes himself abjectly ssrl-
lously, nre ln tho same cluss." Such
people, continued Mr. Griggs, waste all
their ammunition, and nobody pays any
attention to their blank shot*.

There are several districts in VtAVtce
where the very ancient tongues still
survive. Basque is spoken by about
100,000 persons, wbo are naturally
proud of a language that ls their exclusive possession, for lt Is unlike every other spoken tongue, and tbe assertion is commonly made that to understand it one must have learned It In
the cradle. This peculiar property
gives In the mind of the Basque people
support to their belief that it was the
language of Adam and Eve. The same
claim ls advanced, though, for Breton.
The Romans when they conquered
Gaul compared Breton to croaking of
ravens. About a million people speak
Bretou. Then there are Flemish, still
spoken by a comparatively small number ln northeastern France, Catalan In
the Pyrenees-Orientates and Langue-
doc and Provencal, whose gradual extinction has been delayed mainly by
the efforts of a few literary enthusiasts.
Ancient Roses.
Flinders Petrle, tho archaeologist,
while excavating among some ancient
Egyptian tombs, found a wreath of
roses which had been bound Into a
garland and burled with the dead thousands of yoars ago. M. Crepln, the botanist and mlcroscoplst, mnde a careful examination of tbls queer find and
prepared a paper on lt which ho read
before the Royal society of Belgium.
From thiB paper It appears that ln
places where the flowers were matted
together they still retained their color
ss well as n very faint odor. The
species to whleh they belong Is now ex-
tlnct, but a rose resembling them in
several particulars Is still grown ln
Egypt and Abyssinia.

Beneath dead leaves und grasses deep.
Awaiting spring's bright sun and shower
To woo them worth to deck the bower.

That fair wild Mowers will soon aippear,
Hepatlcas, of turquoise blue,
With leaves of hazy, pinkish hue.
Gently  those flowers  will pierce    tho

And soon their liny heads will toss
O'er cones and mosses at their feet.
Awaiting lily bmls to greet.

And whiled awny llie fleeting hours
By watching springing, fragile flowers.

Said to Be Growing In Toronto—Whst
Druggists   Ssy.
The use of leeches Is said to be growing ln Toronto. Leeches aro mostly
bought by people who have had a blaw
or fail, causing a blue spot to appear
where the bl 1 has congested.     They
apply leeched to talco out the Wood from
those spots.
The best leeches are known as  the
Mediterranean   leech   nnd   come   from
San Gulguela, Spain.    They  are about
three Inches long,  with a soft smooth
body  tapering  to  each  extremity,  and I
aro   marked  with  from   ninety  to  ons]
hundred hue simulations;   their   backs]
aro   olive   green   with   six   rusty   red,
longitudinal    stripes.     The    ends    arei
terminated by sinkers.
A peculiar medical law provides that
a drucglst nneit nol apply a leech. Ho
may soil them to persons, but only n
doctor Is allowed to apply lt. One well-
known drugglil says that he once applied a leech to an abrasion on a man's
forehead, because a doctor could not
bo got as tho li"iir was late. "After
the leoch had gorged itsolf and railed
off the mark li fl by the leech bled so
profusely that li look mo over four
hours lo stop It; and then tho man's
face was ten times worse with ths
acids I had to uso."
Some druggists state that the application of le,,lii'.s Is not to bo rocom-
menrted; the cure Is almost as bad as
tho disease. Tlie l-ech has throe small,
sharp, seml-clrcular teeth that radiate
from a ccntr. They cut deep, and always leave a §c r of the same shape as
thomselves. nu the common leech tho
mouth where Hi" cutting teeth aro
found Is at the anlerlor sucking disc.
Just back of Hns, and on the nppor
side, are ten smnll black stints that
serve ns eyes Tho usual quantity of
blood drawn by an average leech averages from one drachm to half an
ounce. It la digested very slowly, and
after being gorged In this manner, the
leech lies fur .• vi ril days beforo It regains ils normal size und appearance.

Maple Lonlfs 10. New Westmiuster 4.
One of thu main topics of conversation this week bus beeu the great victory
of the Maple Leafs over-tlie New West
miuster Ohii.tipioiis on Labor Day. It
was a groat game, such 11s has uot
boon seen iu Vancouver for years, and
there wero ovor 5000 poopln present nl the match. Both teams played
their very best, and throughout, tho
game was n grand exhibition of laorosse.
From the start a fast pRce was set by
both tennis, nud ns the guniu progressed
tho oudiuiiuco of the Royal City Cham-
pauions gradually faded nway aud before the last quarter was finished they
were "all iu." The Unit, quarter euded
without either team scoring The
.second quarter ended with tho score
standing 7 to 0 in.fttvor of the Leafs.
In this quarter the Lent's scored iu such
rapid succession tho Westmiustor team
wns completely .tost, and ihe immense
crowd went wild with excitement. In
the third nnd fourth quarters Westmin
ster made 4 goals, aud in the beginning
of the fourth quarter put up a mighty
strenuous effort 10 save themselves
from nn overwhelming defeat, but- the
swiftness {ind combination work of the
Loafs and tho brilliant work of E.
Ravey i 1 goal were too muoh for the
Champions. As the goug sounded the
end of the game the Leafs scored 11 goal
which was uot counted. That the
Maple Leafs und their supporters should
feel "all kinds of joy" is pardonable,
for they gave tho Now Westmiuster
Champions their first defeat this- year,
What Do They Cure?
Tho above question Is often asked concerning Dr. Plerco's two leading medicines, "(Iolden Medical Discovery" and
"Favorite Prescription."
The answer is that "Golden Medical
Discovery " Is a most potent alteriitlve or
blood-purifier, and tonic or invigorator
and acts especially favorably In a curative way upon all tho mucous lining surfaces, as of tho nasal passages, throat,
bronchial tilling, stomach, bowels and
bladder, curing a large per cent, of catarrhal cases whether the disease affects the
nasal passages, tho throat, larynx, bronchia, stomach (us catarrhal dyspepsia),
bowels (as mucous diarrhea), bladder,
uterus or otlier pelvic, organs. Even In
the chronic or ulcerative stai.es of theso
.offoetions, It Is often successful In affecting cures.
Tho "Favorite Proscription" Is advised
for tho cure of one class of diseases—those
peculiar weaknesses, derangements and
irregularities Incident to women only. It
Is a pownrful yot gently net ing invigorating tonic nnd norvlno. Kor weak worn-
out, over-worked women—no mutter what
bas caused the break-down, "Favorite
Prescription "will bo found most eflectlvo
ln building up tho strength, regulating
the womanly functions, subduing pain
iiinl bringing about a healthy, vigorous
.condition of tho wholo system.
A book of particulars wraps each bottle
giving the furmulteof both ruedloinos and
quoting what scores of eminent medical authors, whose works are consulted
by physicians of all the schools of practico
as guides In prescribing, say ot each hir
grecllent entering Into these medicines,
Tho words of pralso bestowed on thn
soveral Ingredlonts entering Into Doctor
Plerco's mnd lei nrs by such writers should
havo more weight than any amount of
lion - professional testimonials, because
such mon are writing for tho guidance of
thnlr medical brethren and know whereof
they speak.
Both medicines are non-alcoholic, non-
secret, and contain no harmful habit-
forming drugs, being composed of glyceric
extracts of thn roots of native, American
medicinal forest plants. They aro bolh
sold by dealers In medicine. You can't
