(Continued from last week.)
ln an instant lime liocuuic a thing
of naught and was destroyed, nnd
she was back to that other night
long ngo when she had bent over Blm
in the snloon, and, waking, he hnd
en light ber by tho arm and hurt her
in his flerco grasp; but as swiftly thu
present returned to her, and all that
had happened since that night yawned like u gulf between.
Thon, ns she looked, sho snw tho
empty sleeve, the blood-stained bandage on the shoulder, nnd a thrill of
nlni'iu, of pity, run through her.
Vane here, ami wounded I Why had
ho come? Whut fnto hud drifted him
buck to tbu islund and thrown him,
so to speak, at lier feet? Why hnd
he come? Why had he left the womun ho loved, the beautiful woman
she had seen in the box at the
theatre, the "Judith" whose portrait he had carried next his heart?
Had he come in senrch of her, Nina?
Had ho come becnuso tho memories
of the islund had haunted him as thoy
bad haunted her?
The blood ran warmly and swiftly
through her veins and rose to her
face. For a moment she hugged the
thought to hor bosom, and hor heart
boat with something that was like
happiness. The desire to look into
his eyes, to hear him speak, assailed
her irresistibly. She bent still lower
nnd touchod hia forehead with her
lips, then drew back, breathless and
expectant, half fearful, half hopeful.
Light as the touch ot her lips had
been, the pressure of a thistledown
only, it awoke him. He opened his
eyes, with a vague and dazed expression ln thom at first; then, as full
consciousness came back to him, ho
stared at her with a perplexed frown
as if he could not believe that it
wus really her.
The next instant ho was on his
feet, her name on his lips.
She stood, her hands clasped but
ready to bo thrown round his neck,
her figure standing upright, but as
ready to fall on his breast. And, indeed, he did oxtend his amis as if to
tnke to him, did take a step towards her; thon, as if somo thought,
some remembrance, had thrust itself
upon hlni, he stopped short, nnd his
nrms fell to his sides, and, Instead of
words of love, of ondearment, which
would have brought her to him never
to be put away from him again, came
the hoarse, broken Words, like the
dropping of icicles on her expectant
spirit, longing for a sol-er tone, a
loving word:
"I—I |am glad you are hero. I
wantod to seo you—speak to you!"
Nina stood with her hands clasped
tightly, her eyes fixed on Vanu wait-
ingly, and under their regurd hia
courage almost failed him, tho longing to take her in his arms well nigh
mastored bim. illut he thought of
Sutcombe, the man who loved her,
tho man whom she doubtless loved,
ond ha found his voice at Inst. It
sounded harsh and hard in his own
cars; how much more so, thon, in
hers I
"This—this is n strange meeting,"
he said, '"i'he gentleman who came
with you has just left me—"
She shot a quick glance of alarm at
his shoulder; a glance which, of
course. Vane misinterpreted.
"An accident," he said. "A mere
triflo. Lord Sutcombo is not hurt."
Tho color flooded her face, and sho
drew a long breath of relief—of relief on Sutcombe's nccount, Vano
thought, bitterly.
"He has told mo how you happened to como here. I am glad you
have dona so, glad ho Bhould have
the gold. Indeed, it Is yours to do
what you like with. But that's nothing I To me the all Important fact
ls, of courso, that you should be
alive. I have sought for you—" He
checked himself, for ho felt ho should
melt und his resolution break down
if ho dwelt on tho past, ths days
that had passed since thoy had ported. "Will you tell mo how you wore
saved? How fute has dealt with you7
I'm—I'm naturally curious," he added, with a smile from which ho tried
hard to keep the bittorness.
Nina obeyed, speaking almost mechanically. The dream, tho hopo,
which had illumined her spirit as sho
bent over him had vanished, and left
her henrt an aching void.
Ilo listened, with his eyos on the
ground, keeping from bis faco overy
sign of tho emotions that thrilled
him nt her story. Sho had boon
Struggling with poverty while ho had
been burdened by thn woalth that was
useless to him without boil Whon
sho had finished sho stood and waited. She did not nsk him for nn ao-
count of his life sinco they liud parted. He noticed this, nnd again misunderstood.
"Thank Cod, hnrd times are over
for youl" he said, fervsntly. "You
are well? j But—but—not happy,
Shs lookod nt him, an oloquent
glanco, but his eyes wore flxod on
the ground nnd ho did not seo it.
"Perhaps— perhaps I can guess tho
causa—nnd remove it,'' he said, grimly. "Sluy I speak quite candidly?
Oh, whut is the use of our bentinr
about tho bush! Wc nre both thin-Ting of what happened on this islund.
You were the victim o' a cruel fat*,
Nina, a falu I appreciated, I—l strove
to avert. You will do mo tho Justice to acknowledge that, won't you?
Rut 1 huve kept my promise, the
promise you asked nf mo. No one
knows of our—Marriage."
Sho turned hrr fuce from him and
looked straight  bofore her.
"I, too, have kept my promise,"
aho snid,  in a low voice.
He nodded, "I know you would—
for your own sake," bo snid, not at
all gratefully. "It wus poor Fleming's doing entirely. Mlndl I bear
him no III will. lie ncted according
to his lights. Ami mul, after all,
there is no harm done—I mean that
it  can  bo  undone."
Sho   looked  at him    for a second
and waited.
."Slnno X.nrd Sutqogibe left mo," he
went on, "I huvo been tninaing 01
tho—tho tie that binds us two, and
I'vo come to tho conclusion that it
—the marriage—was invalid; anyhow,
that It would not stand good unless
we wero married again."
Tho blood threatened to rise to her
palo face, but sho kept it down.
"If you remember, poor Fleming
eald that we might go through tho
ceremony again lf we escaped from
tho island, whon wo got to a port—"
She mado the faintest gesture of
assent with her hand.
"Therefore, ln Henvcn'a name, why
should you be bound to me by so
frail and Intangible a bondl" he
broko out, sharply. "I know how
you must long for your freedom; you
would do eo in any caso; but now—"
Her brows knit as if she were trying to understand this.
"And—and I admit that you have
tho right to be free; that, indeed, it
would be a shameful thing to hold
you by a chain which tottered you
against your will."
She mad* no sign of assent or dissent, and, stringing himself up to the
necessary pitch of self-sacrifice, he
went on, huskily:
"Fleming gave you a kind of certificate?   You have got it ■till?"
She mado a movement of her hand
In tho afllnuative,
"Well, thon," he said, almost savagely, "destroy It."
Her eyes flashed on him for an instant, with surprise aad reliof, as hs
"And ths ring. Give it back to
me, and—and ao cancel our"—ha
laughed slowly and bitterly—"our
agreement. There can bo nothing
then between you and—your freedom,
except the—the ceremony. If that
seems to you an obstacle, you can
get it removed by a court of law. I
—of course, I should not oppose.
Lord Sutcombe would be ablo to
help you ln that (port of the business. He—he ls a good fellow; I am
eure of that, and ho—uou—" Tho

she turned from him and took from

"Thero they arc," ehe said, with
an unnatural calm.

Her eyes closed, the languor of

Remarkable Double Dc.-.th That Recall!
the Northwest Rebellion That Cost
Canada Many Valuable Lives.
Gabriel Dumont's untimely death at
the age of 75, and the death of Kiel's
mother on the same day, ls a coincidence that time recalls when the
names Dumont and Riel thrilled all
Canada. Even at the time of the rebellion Dumont was credited with supplying the brains of the insurrection, Kiel
contributing the necessary fanaticism
that drew to his side the Indians and
half-breeds of the Northwest. Dumont
was a more dangerous man than Riel,
for he brought to the camp of the conspirators a cold-blooded cunning that
cost Canadian lives. He was not carried away by his chiefs wild Imaginings, but fought desperately like a man
with a rope around his neck. It was
his boast that he would never bo taken
alive, and lt ls altogether likely that
he would have killed himself rather
than trust himself ln the hands of ths
Canadian Government.
Dumont, the Buffalo Hunter,
History will reveal none of the promoters of the Northwest rebellion as a
hero. They hardly lend themselves to
picturesque treatment, thoso who could
not be considered fools being squalid
knaves, or both. Dumont was not a
fool, though ho assisted ln organizing
and was director of ono of tho maddest enterprises in all history. He was
born at Edmonton, of an Indian mothor
and a French-Canadian father, one of
a numerous family. As a youth he was
a buffalo hunter, and became an adept
ln the rather dangerous occupation.
His fine physique, his courago and daring, and his Intelligence made him a
man of note, and by the time he had
reached early middle age Dumont was a
factor to be reckoned with In dealings
between the whites and the Indians.
The.Tempter of Riel.
In 18S0 tho Dumont family moved te
South Branch and there founded a settlement, where Gabriel was chief. By
this time he was reputed to be wealthy
for a half-breed, a circumstance that
gave him additional weight with tin
Indians. Personally, then, It ls plain
that Dumont had Ittle reason to complain of the conditions that Inducted
many of the Metis to rise ln rebellion.
Nevertheless he was chiefly responsible
for Inducing Riel to return to Canada In
1884, after his sentence of banishment
had ended. To Riel he represented tha
whole Northwest as awaiting but his
appearance to take up arms. The white
settlers, he said, would join them, and
the rising would be so general that
the Canadian Government would nol
dare resist the demands made upon lt.
Whether Dumont believed all he told
Riel ls open to doubt, but it ls plain
that he believed there would be llttla
fighting, and a quick acceptance of the
rebels' terms. He pictured himself and
Riel as the half-breed governors of ths
The Half-Breeds' Demands.
Though Riel and Dumont were visionary and adventurers, and entitled to
fight under no nobler flag than the skull
and crossbones, they drew up a document setting forjitthe Indians' grievances, and dlgnlflecrlt with the name of
Bill of Rights. In this ultimatum,
which was delivered to the Dominion
Government, tha following demands
were made:
The Northwest to be sub-divided Into
Half-breeds to bo treated aa th*
breeds of Manitoba.
Patents to be issued at once t* settlers ln possession.
Half a million acres of Dominion
lands to be sold and proceeds used ts
establish half-breed Institutions.
Reservation of a hundred townships
of swamp lands for distribution
among the ohlldren or the half-breeds
ln the next 120 years.
Grant of 11,000 annually to support
half-breed Institutions.
Better provision for ths support of
the Indians.
The Government's Answer.
The Government's answer to this
manifesto was to the effect that a
commission had been appointed to »n-
quire Into the general subject of half-
breed claims; and that any half-breed
legally entitled to lt could get a patent
for his land. The Government promised that the ordinary method of surveying. I.e., laying the land out In squares,
would not be folio ved, if the 'breeds
were desirous of retaining their river-
lots, after the fashion ln Quebec. Although this matter was not mentioned
ln the BUI of Rights, lt was considered
very important by the rebels, and ths
Government's concession on the point
was well calculated to allay 111-teellng.
Tho reply also exposed the Impudent
nature of the claims for treatment according to the practice adopted tn
Manitoba, for lt asserted that th*
men making the demands were ths
same Individuals who had already
been settled with when they lived ln
Manitoba. They had been given theii
land there, sold It and moved west,
and now Insisted that they should b»
Dumont, the Lieutenant.
Before the serious nature of the situation was realized Riel had struck at
Duck Lake and the fight was on. Dumont was his lieutenant from the beginning, and lt was ho who planned
the actual fighting and forced upon thi
rebels such Ideas of formation and discipline as they could understand. It
was Dumont who, tho night be/or* th*
fight at Fish Creek, designed the plot
to carry off Gen. Mlddleton and his
staff, un.,1 Hum.>nt Is credited with aiming the shot that pierced Oen. Middle-
ton's hat tho day after. As soon a* lt
wus seen that the whites wore not rising In support of the 'broods, Dumont
recognized the hopeless nature of Ihe
rebellion, and made plans for his escap*
before lt was too late. He got saftly
away, but Riel was captured and pt.ld
the penalty with his life. Twenty years
longer Dumont lived, the keeper of •
ferry that bears his name, respected, it
Is said, by tho Indians and half-breeds,

Not   For   Her—Told   of   Mark  Twain.
A story ls told of a young wife who
knew little of housekeeping. She was
lu consequence of that Inexperience
disposed to stand a bit In awe of the
butcher, the baker and tbe candlestick
maker, for she felt sure they must be
aware of the extent of her Ignorance
lu household matters. She ordered ouly sucb things as she was absolutely
sure of, and she made her Interviews
with the tradesmen as brief as possible.
One morning there came to her house
a collector of ashes. "Ash-ees, ash-ees!"
she heard him culling In stentorlnn
tones. As the cry wns repented ngaln
and ngaln she became more and more
perplexed ns to whut "ash-ees" meant.
Finally she went to the gate tn the
rear and opened lt "Ash-ees?" camo
lu guttural question from tbe man.
The youug wife hesitated for a moment; then, drawing herself up to a
dignified attitude, she replied coldly,
"No, I don't think I caro for any today."
At a recont dinner Mark Twain, according to an English report, made a

It    Undergoes    Wonderful    Changes
Daring Its Growth.
The wonderful changes which the human brnlu undergoes from the moment
when lt first appears in the embryo until lt becomes the perfected laboratory
of thought characteristic to the matured human being has been commented
upon by several of the leading writers
on biology, physiology, etc. During
these successive changes, or, rather,
transformations from the lower to the
higher sphere, the human brain not
only takes upon itself the generni shnpe
and form of the brains of various representatives of the lower classes of animals, but appears to have the same
structural constituents, st least to a
certain degree. Thus lt has been found
that the original germ of the brain as
lt appears In the human embryo has
the exnet outlines of n serpent's thought
factory. After that the changes whleh
take place while the brain ls assuming
the various shnpes which It must undergo beforo lt becomes perfect givo it
a decided resemblance to the brains of
fishes, birds and mammlferous animals.
"Heln's "Thoughts on the Structure
of the Human Brain" nnd Wilson's
"Anatomy of the Humnn Body" both
mention these queer transformations,
as doos nlso Hugh Miller ln bis famous
work, "Testimony of the Roeks." Miller puts It In this way: "It has long
been known that the human brain Is
built up by a wonderful process, during which tt assumes In succession the
form of the brain of a serpent s fish,
a bird, and lastly, beforo it assumes the
characteristic human form, It takes upon Itself tho outline of a mammlferous
quadruped's brain."  Hence tho remark

Facts About the Hoenan-Sayers Battle
Forty-Six Yeass Ago.
The great fight for the championship
of England and the world was fought
at Farnborough on April 17, 1860, between Tom Sayers of London, and J. H,
Heenan, the "Benlcla Boy," an American. Tho contest, being generally regarded as an International trial ol
"pluck," excited the keenest Interest In
both hemispheres, and revived for a
timo the faded glories of the prize
ring. The "noble" art of self-defence
indeed, has been lauded time after
time by Englishmen of all classes, and
when considered In opposition to the
Use of tho treacherous knife or the
fatal firearm, ls not without Its merits.
Ths Times alluded to the affair tn a
leading article, and Punch celebrated
Its occurrence in a "Lay (aftor Mao-
aulay) of Modern London" under ths
title of the "Fight of Sayerlus and
Heenanlus." Dukes' sons, cooks'
sons, peers and peers' sons wen there;
members, of Parliament In plenty;
ac'y men.' authors, poets, painters,
il    clergymen,   "men   about   town,"
■ vuibers of the fancy," a vast variety of low life, many of them open to
suspicion, some long past suspicion.
Sayers had met ond defeated many
of the best fighters of the time, and
had only been beaten once — by Nat
Langfe&m, the most ace—npllshed boxer
of the day. Sayers was flvo feet eight
Inches ln height and weighed ten stones
ten pounds. Heenan stood six feet ons
and one-half inches and was a powerful heavyweight, with extraordinary
ong-reachlng arms. Time after time
Bayers was knocked down by blows,
each of which seemed sufficient to settle the fight, but ho always came up ln
good, lf grim humor, and planted blow
after blow on the American's eyes, and
even succeeded In knocking his opponent down. After fighting, -U.ilil many
Interruptions, thirty-seven grounds In
about two hours and Van minutes,

teemed Imminent, the ropes wera cut
by the crowd, the police entered the
ring, and, amidst the wildest confusion,
the combatants were hurried off the
Jeld by their respective friends, Heen
an all but blind and Sayers with his
right arm powerless,
Tha appropriation of the stakes and
honors gave rise to the fiercest controversy. Subsequently, however, each
received a belt, and Sayers retired from
the championship on May 80, 1860. It
has been said of "poor Tom" that
"with his name was associated all
that was bold, generous, manly and
lonest in pugilism.'' Three thousand
sounds were raised for him by public
subscription, the interest of which was
paid to him on condition that he
fought no more. The money was afterward divided among his children on
;helr coming of age. He died Nov. I,
.865, in the fortieth year of his age.—

How They Wero Conducted In tho Days
of Henry VIII.
One of the events of the London season is to be a graphic representation
of tilting as lt was practiced ln tho
tones of Henry VIII. This Inspiriting !
spectacle will form one of the displays
at tho military tournament to be held
at Olympla, under the planning and
direction of Viscount Dillon, keeper of
the tower armories, and a famous expert ln these and all kindred matters.
The viscount appropriately , enough,
contributes to The Pall Mall Magazine
a bright and Informing article, full of
rare facts and Illustrations, which goes
far to clear away a number of our misconceptions as to what the art of tilting and jousting used to be.
The expression "a tournament" has,
the viscount says, much changed In Its
significance from the days when such
exercises and displays of warlike action
were common. Young men who aspired to shine ln the use of arms seized
the occasion of the proclamation of a
tournament to display not only their
proficiency, but also their magnificence
and ability to spend largo sums of money ln support of lt. The tournament
waa, so far as those taking part In lt
were concerned, only for the rich, or
at least for the proteges of the great.
Unfortunately for the Interests ot
truth, the tournament has been seized
on by the romnnoers and other artists
and so disguised with Action and fancy
that the real thing Is hardly to be recognized In such works as "Ivanhoe,"
or such displays as the Eglinton Tournament of 1839. While we find tournaments ln the reigns of the first three
Edwards, we also find a great number
of prohibitions by those kings of these
projected tournaments. The reason for
these prohibitions ls pretty olear. The
assemblage of largo bodies of people,
some of them at least skilled in the
profession ot arms, could hardly be
regarded with satisfaction by the authorities when the position of the crown
was not as assured as lt now Is. And
again, the call on the nobles and leaders
of men for Bervice ln foreign wars
would not allow of the expenditure of
so much energy and money on what
were displays of comparative personal
power. Certainly during the great war
with Franc— we do And magnificent
tournaments talc'.ng place, __s at St. In-
glevert, near Calais, where for the purpose safe-conducts were given to
knights and others attending. Frolssart
has given us description cf this meeting, and tho splendidly Illuminated
manuscripts of his works (executed, of
course, some eighty or a hundred years
later) still present to us some of the
glories of that tournament as treated
'by later artists.
To form some Idea of the outfit of a
knight for attending a tournament, we
may refer to "Petit Jean de Salntre,"
whero we And tho following list of expenses: throe knights with fourteen
horses, nine squires with twenty-two
horses, a chaplain and a chief herald
with two horses; two drummers with
ten horses, besides four powerful destriers ridden by pages with two
grooms to each, two cooks with throe
horses, a courier, a shoeing smith and
an armorer with four horses, four
pack-horses for himself, and four more
for his company, and twelve for his
household besides and for his maltre d'
hotel—In all eighty-nine horses. These,
with three or more rich suits of clothes
for the different exercises of the tournament, and the necessary varieties of
armor for horse and foot combats, and
banners and standards, not to mention
his weapons, wore a handsome allowance for one who was not a rich noble
but ei simple "eeiiyer tranchant" to tho
king. It should, however, be noted
that all this kit was provided by a
lady of the court whose protege Petit
Jean was, and whose colors and devices he wore and celebrated.
As to tho Queen of Beauty, who figures In "Ivanhoe," and who was reproduced at Eglinton; she ls entirely an
invention, and ln the accounts of real
tournaments she does not appear.

Chief Johu Sark of Prince Edward Island Is trying to be to tbe Indians of
Canada. Well educated for oue of his
race, of pleasing manner, and the possessor of unusual shrewdness, Chief
Bark Is beginning to be recognized
throughout the Maritime Provinces as
one of the most public-spirited men of
his race. Though only forty-seven
years ot age, tbe chief has exorclsod
his immediate authority over the Mlo-
macs of the Island Province for more
than teu years, and as there are more
than three hundred of these full-blooded "Ametlcans" under his Jurisdiction
(Of ths Mlomao tribe of Indians, Prince
Edward Island.)
tt will be seen that his position is no
sinecure. Recently some ultra-democratic members of the tribe began to
air their "republican" Ideas ln the
Government reservation at Lennox
Island, claiming that it would be better for all concerned lf tbe chieftainship were abolished. Such a course
would necessarily be fatal to the national existence of a roving people, and
this danger Chief Sark so successfully
explained tbat he was immediately reelected for another term. Though only
the actual head of the Prince Edward
Island Mlcmacs, the subject of this
sketch has alvays entertained ambitious vlows regarding the welfare of
his race throughout the entire Dominion. Recently he went on an offlcltj
visit to several upper Canadian chiefs
and to tbe Department of Indian Affairs at Ottawa.
In person Chief Sark Is a magnificent
specimen of manhood. Though tbe
physical traits of his race are dominant
In his face and form, yet a strain of
hardy French blood can be noticed ln
his high forehead and piercing black
Byes. His official residence Is at Lennox Island, a beautiful spot about ten
miles to the west of Summerslde, P.
E. I. Here upon the 10th day of August
every year the chief presides over the
ancient festivities which usher ln ths
feast day of the Mlcmacs' patron saint,

This earth received what was probably Its greatest shaking In modern
times when tha tremendous volcanic
eruption of Krakatoa, ln Sunda strait,
occurred in 1883. A curious incident of
that time is recalled by a correspondent who was a passenger on a steamship on the voyage between Colombo
and Albany, King George's sound, some
1.500 or 2,000 miles south of the center
of the disturbance. It was a beautiful
night, aud shortly after dinner, when
the deck was crowded with passengers,
the lookout shouted, "Breakers ahead!"
This was In midocoan, with no shoal
water nearer than the Australian coast,
five or six days' sail distant Tbe
steamer was slowed down, and presently drifted Into a mass of floating
lava and green slime. Bucketfuls were
hauled on deck and strained through
cloths. Nearly all night tbe steamer
forged ahead at half speed, with the
floating scum grating agnlnst ber sides,
and iu the morning, wben clear wnter
was reached., tbe sides of the ship below the water line were bare of point
and burnished like steel.
The Bed Ho—ltiijr Monkey.
Tha red howler (Mycetcs senlculus)
Is a rare monkey of tbe forests of

delicate animal and Is chiefly remarkable for the extraordinary noises It
makes. The cries lt utters comprise almost any sound from a subdued moan
to an angry roar, and lt ls hardly conceivable that they should proceed from
a single animal. This ls the animal
called red monkey by Waterton In his
"Wanderings In South America," where
an admirable description of Its weird
cries may be read. These sounds are
produced ln a bony cavity formed by
an enlargement of the hyoid, or tongue
bone. Iu appearance the red bowler ls
an elegant little creature, well clothed
with hair of a reddish brown color.
Like the spider monkeys, it is provided
with a long, prehensile tall, the under
surface of which ls naked townrd tbe

rich enough to finance great undertakings ln Cuba. Rio de Janeiro, and the
City-of Mexico. It ls, however, well
known that the Canadians are, per capita, the greatest buyers of foreign products and ware In the world. Their
trade is Immense In comparison with
their numbers. This, we must explain,
is due to their energy and their possession of a country abounding ln resources, and to their intelligent exploitation of those natural elements ol

They Give a Faint Idea of the   Awful
Immensity of Space—Where the
Planets Belong.
Some people find a curious difficulty
In mentally distinguishing between
stars and planets. Again and again
they hear that stars are suns and that
planets are worlds, that a sun ls not a
world and that a planet ls not a star,
and their confusion of mind on the subject remains untouched. Yet the distinction is not really difficult Id grasp,
and to see lt clearly ls quite essential
to any understanding of tbo heavens.
Our eun Is a star, brother to all thoso
twinkling points which lie scattered
over the night sky. Our world ls not a
star, but a planet, sister to the few
shining but non-twinkling bright bodies
which appear to wander slowly among
the stars. The planets belong to our
solar system- all of them, without exception, that we ai e able to see. Other
planets belonging to other stars may
and doubtless do exist In countless
millions througn the universe, but we
have no power to detect thoir presence. They, llko the planets which belong to our sun, s ine by the reflected
brightness of their particular star, not
by their own Intrinsic radiance, and so
they cannot be seen at a very great
distance. Any watoher with eyesight
and telescopes such as ours gazing
from the region of any star in the sky
outside our solar system would see
nothing whatever of the planets or the
moons of our system. He might make
out the sun as a more or less dim star.
He would not bo able to detect Jupitor
or Saturn, still less our little earth.
And it must be remembered that
every single star ln the whole universe
lies outside our solar system, with only
one exception. That exception Is our
sun. So by the solar system we mean
the little fawlly or kingdom of one
star, known to us as the sun, and that
star Is one of tens of millions of stars
which all together make up the enormous stellar system, and tbat stellar
system ls doubtless one of very maay,
perhaps millions, of stellar systems,
all of which together make up the crested universe, using that word la Its
older and not In its more modern
sense.—Chambers' Journal.

solely," said a chemist. "Tbey stimulate the brain, and the reaction from
the stimulation is not perceptible;
hence tea and coffee are excellent
brain spurs. For a little while they
do actually make us more Intelligent
tban we naturally are. That is why they
are so popular. It Is wby we chemists
call them Intellect^ drinks. Alcohol,
whether It be taken In the form of
champagne or beer or whisky, ls not
an Intellectual drink, but the opposite.
From the beginning alcohol stupefies
Instead of enlivening the brain. But
It makes us talk! If It were not enlivening how should It make us talk?
Alas, alcohol makes us talk, but we
say under Its Influence ths things we
should not. Alcohol deadens the Inhibitory, tbe prohibitive centers of the
brain. It stupefies tbo brnln muscle,
which knows whnt things should not
be told, and hence, while drinking we
talk; but, oh, the things we say, and,
oh, how we blush In the cold gray
light of the morning nfter to remember
what we snld!"

"Tarry" Oould wns a well known
character In and around Dnnvers years
ago, but very few knew what gave
him the nickname of "Tarry." He was
very fond of telling about tbe long sea
trip he enjoyed when a young man. It
seems he thought he wus tired living
ashore, so he went to Dauversport and
shipped on a coasting schooner bound
for Philadelphia, tie used to say, In
telling his story: "I did expect to en-
Joy that trip so much. Well, we cast
off from the wharf and started down

Tha Army of a Dream.
Some time ago Mr. Roger Pocock
irrotu a book called: A Frontiersman,"
which had a good many ideas In It,
and was a vivid story of tha adventurous life of a true son of the empire,
a typical memi,er of the "Legion that
never was 'listed." From that book
comes the title, from its author oomei
tho Idea, of ths Legion of Frontiersmen
In proooss of accompaniment. Just as
"All Sorts and Conditions of Men," by
Desant and Rice, was the origin of the
People's Palace In the east end, Just as
from Charles Rcado's "Never Too Late
to Mend" dates a strong movement ol
prison reform, so from "A Frontiersman'' dates the lncoptlon of ths Legion
of Frontiersmen. The Legion ls the
army of a dream, and tho growth of thai
dream ls traceable through tho pages
of an autobiography which already
ranks as & classic In the annals of real
adventure. "A Frontiersman," and seven othor books by the same author, are
now to bo published In aid of the patriotic fund for the establishment of
tha new corps.

When a south sen Islund mother

the forum of punishment customary
among civilized mother! she pulls tho
child's hair or bites somo part of the

ouo sees many children hnving on their

flictod by their mothers' toetb. When
a mother wishes to caress her child
she deftly draws her thumb across Its

simple tailored styles, which are regarded as more or less staple in fall seasons.
Every manufacturer is showing a
great variety of tailored suit, although
the variety is more of material and
coloring than of style. Designers have
confined themselves rather closely to
lengths in these garments, and, holding
to the plain ideas and the tailored
finish, they are not able to introduce
very great individuality.
Many high-class novelties in fnncy

The one-piece or princess costume
has by no means exhausted its popularity, although fall models in high class
stuff will include the three-piece costume, in many instances a wrap being
shown en suite with the gown. Soft
satin-surfaced silks aud sheer marquisettes are need in the early costume
models shown, nnd tones of pink and
pinkish yellows are prominent among
the models prepared for evening costumes All-black black-and-white combinations and black with colors aro
shown in many beantifnl and high-class

garment comes more iuto prominence.
Many strikingly handsome models are
shown in dressy day and evening
wraps of velvet and cloth, while on the
other hand a good showing is mado of
plainer practical garments known a*

ntility wrap appears in a nnmber of
new tones chin fall. Plaids of subdued
tones in rough materials are presented as a novelty, aud cape-like
models are increasing.
