.munn smiled nt him, as .jtmutluin
might have smiled nt David, and,
when he had finished his coffee, went
to the piano. He did not nsk Judith
to piny for him that night, and he
sung the  "yeoman's  Wedding Song"
with a verve and swing which see il
to set every piece of china on the
Chippendale cabinets ringing.
"lli'iivo!" suid Vane, "Splendid,
isn't it?' he demanded of Lady Fan-
"Splendid," she answered duly,
with a glance ut the handsomo fnce
of ilv singer, now thrown hack with
parted lips and Hashing eyes. "do
.Mm tnke him with you where you
go?   By the way, where do you go?"
"I don't know," he said. "I shall
stay here for a lew duys; a week,
perhaps, oh, yes; Julian will go
with me, I've no doubt."
"My poor Vnnc!" she murmured)
but  he did not hear her.
Bridge was started, hut Vane did
not play. The Fairy Isle wns haunting him presently that night und he
could riot settlo tlown. lie lit a
cignr and paced up and tlown the
terrace. Later on the bridge players
censed, nnd, after tho usual wrangling review of the game, went up to
bed. Vane, looking in at the drawing-room door, saw Julian nnd Judith standing by the firo. They were
apparently engaged in the usual commonplaces which arc uttered before
parting for the night, and he did not
see the sombre lire that glowed in
Julian's eyes ns he murmured:
"Vou  will not  wait?"
"No," she snid.
"llut you will keep your promise?"
"Yes," she answered in the same
Nothing more. So are most of the
tragedies of life preluded, lie opened
the door for her and she posseil out
and he went on to the terrace, meeting Vano face to face.
"Julian!" eaid Vane. "Is—is it
all right? Have you asked her? Oh,
1 know your secret, my denr fellow!"
Julian hesitated for a moment,
then he said:
"Yes, I have asked her. And it is
'yes.' '■'
"I congratulate you with all my
heart!" said Vane. "Love—well,
love is the one thing Junitn wiiim-—
And shu has got that, 1 know. .Splendid! Pm glud! Where are you
"To my den," said Julian. His
lips woro dry, and he thought his
voico was hoarse; but it wus not.
Vuno saw nothing but the lover's
dreaminess and embarrassment)
"I'll como to you—let me finish this
cigar in the open air. 1 want to talk
over our plans," he said.
Julian nodded and went to the laboratory. He looked round the
room that, notwithstanding its luxurious appointments, was still suggestive of mystery, and, gliding to
the wall on whicll the ro|K'S of the
curious ventilator were hung, nearly
scvorcd the alreudy frayed strands.
Then he closed the door that led to
the ladies' garden ami drew the portiere curtain over it. The spirit furnace was in its place, but unlit, unit
he lighted it and placed beside it,
but not upon it, an iron pot containing a bluish liquid. Then he lit
a cigurctte and, opening a book, sat
at the table as if reading; but the
printed lines danced before his eyes
and he did not turn a page.
Presuntly there enme » knock at
the door. Vnnu's quick sharp knock,
and hu entered. He had exchanged
his dress coat for an old smoking
jacket, a thick, comfortable jacket,
with heavy brass buttons.
"No stink on to-night, Julian," he
said, pleasantly. "Now, ubout our
plans, old man." He took out his
pipo and filled and lit it. "What do
you suy to Monto Carlo and then,
when we are bored of )t, Egypt? Or
would you rather stay on here and
go in for hunting and the rust of it?
You have only to suy. I don't care.
It's all one to me. JJut 1 ought to
mention that Judith is going
Julian nodded. "I know. I want
to tell you nil nbout it, Vane," ho
eaid, hesitatingly,
Vanu laughed. "You need not.
Mun, do you think I haven't eyes!
Or course I've seen how it is with
you! And, by (leorge, I'm not surprised! There isn't a more bountiful
womun in the world, or one better
worth tho winning. Juliun, did I
ever tell you—" He paused and puffed at his pipe.
"Thut you were onto In love with

enough; but his lips twitched us they

she'd tell you," he said, simply.
"I'm glad If she has. It wasn't to
lie. No matter, 1 can still wish you
luck, old chap. What aro you going
to do."
Juliun hnd got up and, aa if mo-
ihunieiilly,  hud put  the iron pot   on
the spirit furnace,
"An experiment," ho suid, in a
ensiiul kind of way. "I'm trying for
this new color. I've got it In my
head.   You don't mind,  do you?"
"No; not if you don't make too
much of a froust," said Vane.
"Well, what tio you say to my
plans? Wc could join the Urines at
Moi»to Carlo— Phew, that stuffs beginning to smell alreudy!"
"ft will be over in a minute,"
suid Julian. "You leave it to uie,

"That's Just It," suid Vano. "I
don't care. It's all one to mu whero
1 am. Few places or things hold nny
charm for inc."
.I ii 1 iii ri looked at him with a
strange mlxturo of curiosity and
aloofness, us if his mind were pro-
occuplod, Then ho turned to the
furnace ngnin.
"Bothorl" he suid. "I shnll have
to get more spirit, Do you   mind?"
lie looked over his shoulder ill Vane,
and the bluish (tames eaat a ghastly
light, on his |nile face—"do you mind
stilling Ihis sttill while I'm gone? I
sha'n't be more thun u miniito or
two. I keep It outside—"
vane got up irom nig chair and
shrugged his shoulders good-humor-
edly. "All right; but I hope I sha'n't
spoil it; I'm not used to this game."
"Oh, no," responded Julian, casually. "Just keep it stirred."
As hu opened the door he glanced
over his shoulder again at Vanu; and
surely if Vane had seen the expression in the blnck eyes shining forth
from tho dark shadows surrounding
them, ho would havo folt some presentiment of coming ill; but all his
attention was fixed on tho task he
had undertaken.
Julian's glance lusted but a moment, and he went out and closed
tho door softly behind him. Hu did
not turn the key, for tho door locked by a spring, as did that wliich led
to tho ladies' garden, and to both
doors only ho and Deborah had keys.
Outside thu door ho paused a moment, biting his lips and driving tho
tell-tale expression from his eyes,
then ho went slowly, and humming
tho air he had sung a littlo whilo
ago, into the hall. Prance, the butler, was standing there and Julian
wont up to him.
"Oh, Prunce," he said, "I've run
out of methylated spirits; do you
think you could got ine some?"
"Yes, Mr. Julian. I generally keep
some by mo in my pantry. Shall I
bring it to your room?"
"Oh, don't trouble; I'll wait hero,
thanks," said Julian. Ho sang ruth-
er more loudly as Letchford came
down tho stairs.
"Seen Vano?" he asked. "If he
hasn't gone to bed I want him to
come nnd have a pipe. 1 enn't sleep,
somehow," ho laughed shamefacedly.
"Usually drop ofl ns soon as my
head's on the pillow."
"Vane's in my den—writing letters. Wo were making our plans for
abroad. I'll tell him when I go
"Oh, don't bother him if he's writing," said Letchford, and he went
on  to thu smoking-room.
Prance enme back with the spirit-
can in his hand.
"Very sorry, Mr. Julian," he said,
"but I'vo run out. Some of the
maids must have been at it for their
curling tongs. I daresay I could get
some from ono of them."
Julian thought swiftly. "Ah, yes,"
he said. "I wish you would. I want
it particularly. Sond up to Miss
Ormo's maid and ask har."
"I'll go myself, sir," suid Prance,
and he went up the stairs.
Julian, still humming, wont to the
smoking-room and looked in. Letchford was walking up and down,
smoking vigorously and rumpling his
short hair, a trick ho had when he
was worried or puzzled.
"Como iu and sit down," he snid
to Julian. "I've got what my wife
calls a fidgety fit on me to-night;
kind of a—a—what do you call it,
Julian smiled. "That ragout was
very rich, ' he said. "I think that
chuf always overdoes tho butter. I'll
como and have a cigarette presently
but I must go back to the dun first
I'll bring Vane with inc."
"Do!" said Eetchford, with undue
Julian nodded and sauntered buck
to the hnll. As he did so a tall figure in ii lea-gown glided down the
stairs. It was Judith. lie stopped
short and their eyes met. In hers
wus a covert fear, a dread questioning nnd doubt; in his the gleam of a
deadly determination.
"You sent lor some spirit?" she
said in a- low voice.
The expression of his fnce changed
to one of passionate admiration, and
his ej 's roamed over the beautiful
face und tall, light  figure.
"Yes," he said, in nn ordinary
tone. "Dot 1 nm sorry if I disturbed
you,  your maid—"
"My maid is getting it," she said.
"Whero—where i.s   Vane?"
His lids drooped. She, too, was
asking lor Vane. Did she suspect anything? No matter if she did. At that
moment hu felt that he would like
her to have known, would wish
that she should shni'e his guilt.
"In my den," he replied steadily,
lie looketl ut his watch us he spoko,
and his lips moved us if hu wero
making a calculation.
"In your den—what is ho doing
there?" she nsked.
Julian smiled with nn affectation
of surprise, "lie is writing; wo aro
talking over our programme, and
have decided to join you either at
Monte Carlo or Cairo."
She drew a broath of relief, but
said nothing. Prance came down the
stairs wilh the run in his hand, nntl,
with u murmured "good-night," she
went up.
"I've been able to got n little for
you,  Mr.  .lulinn," said Piunce.
Julian thanked hiin, untl, taking
up his song again, went slowly townrd  the Witch's  ltooni.
Vano had drawn a chair up to tho
spirit furnace and he leant over thu
pot stirring it mechanically. Yes; hu
wns decidedly tie tuup; if he were out
of Ihe wuy, Julian and Judith would

heyday of their youth; with their

cough, for the fumes were beginning to rise from tho pot and had
gol   inlo his  lungs.
"1'hcw!" ho muttered. "Hope nothing's going wrong with tlie beastly
stuff; Juliun will be disappointed,
Am I stilling it enough?" Tho fumes
grew thicker, so that ho felt some
difficulty in breathing'. Gradually
the difficulty increased and, half
choking,  he  looked  round the  room.

The  Manner In Which  Men  Like to
See Women Dreased.
If women dress to plense men they
will always be gowned simply, appropriately, more quietly and consequently more becomingly thnn If they wear
their clothes for the benefit of women.
Men always like simple, neat costumes, free from flying ends, frills,
ribbons und laces. Of course there are
men who never notice wbat kind of
clothes their wives and daughters
wear. They only know when these
look well, when the general effect is
good, but are never nble to particularize, but men are becoming better educated ln the matter of clothes for women, and the average man of today
traveling about among women ls capable of discriminating and knows the
value of a woman's clothing as well as
its becomingncss. Many wives would
appear to better advantage In their
clothes lf they would take their husbands' advice In the selection of them
Instead of the advice of their dressmakers. The latter are apt to burden
their customers down with costly and
unbecoming furbelows regardless of
taste.—Frances van Etten In Leslie's

But  It»   Price   I»   Regulated   by  the
Natnrul Supply.
A curious phase of the ice trade ls
found in the fact that artificial Ice can
be and ls produced In unlimited quantities, and yet the price Is regulated by
tbe source of natural supply, which ls
scarcely drawn upon. Before the Introduction of artificial ice this was reasonable enough. There is, Indeed, some
ice cut on tbe lakes of Maine, ou the
upper Hudson aud lakes like Rockland,
but for several^ years It has not been
more than 15 per cent of the whole
supply. The ice trade of tbe tropics ls
a thing of the past. As late as 1890 a
fleet of ships was engaged ln this traffic, carrying Ice all the year round to
tbe West Indies, to Bombay, Calcutta
and Singapore and even to the China
seas, that has now been driven to seek
other cargoes. The local Ice machine
has supplanted the cargo Ice altogether.
The frozen meat ships from this country, from Australia and the river Plate
all make their own Ice, and tbe storehouses hnve tbelr artificial plants,
which also supply ln a large measure
the local consumers. In 1800 thirty-five
ships laden with Ice from Maine entered at tbe port of Calcutta. In 1000
thero was one, ond since then none at
Rockland lake used to cut ond store
for summer use ln a season 50,000 tons
of Ice. This year lt stored less than
5,000 tons.
There ls a demand for natural Ice because, paradoxically enough, It melts
faster and more evenly tban tbe arti-
flcal product and will chill an icebox
or refrigerator more rapidly and effectively. For this reason brewers aud
saloon keepers prefer it for the preservation of temperature of beers especially. It is more expensive at tbe same
price than artificial Ice because lt ls not
so durable. Meanwhile the cost of artificial ice production, after the plant is
established, is reduced approximately
to 2 cents a hundred pounds. To tbls
may be added the cost of distribution,
which is a varying figure, but on tbe
authority of experts lee could be sold
to consumer, at a fair profit not to exceed 12_ cents a hundredweight. It Is

a hundredweight, with a prospect of

He Heeded the Petition.

about attending to an Informal petition. Finding that the king was very

Served as Game In Hotels, and Few
Can Tell the Difference.
"When game goes out of season by
reason of the game laws the guinea
fowl man gets his innings," said an experienced farmer discussing new open-
lugs In his trade.
"In habits and Instincts the guinea
resembles the wild birds much more
than It does tbe ordinary domesticated
fowl," he added, "while Its flesh ls
dark meat very solid and plump and
of a flavor closely resembling that of a
quail. For that reason It is the best
substitute for game fowl yet discovered and that at a fourth of the price
asked for the more expensive luxury.
At this time of year the old guineas
are in market and find ready demand
because of the absence of wild meats,
while just befove tbe opening of the
game fowl season In the fall the young
(spring) guineas will come in to sell
either In propria persona or as quail.
"Much that Is sold by poultrymen as

Britain is  Expected to  Refuse  Them
an Asylum
London.—The odious crime at Madrid lms raised again the practical
problem of how society shall protect
itself against its most venomous enemies. Europe has long complained
that the spread of anarchism nntl Its
virtual immunity is due to the free
asylum offered to even its most vicious members hy Grent Britain. It
has even been suid that Great Britain
has purchased Immunity for the Royal
family nnd the other authorities by
making a tacit bargain with the most
despicable criminals that infest the
Since the retirement of Chief Melville, of Scotland Yard, the Anarchists have laugued at the attempted
espionage of the London police, and,
for that mntter, they have no serious
reason to fear it. The dental of the
Scotland Ynrd ofliicinls that the Madrid plot wns concocted In London
ennnot bo accepted The evidence
that it wns fully known here days before the royal we.lding Is overwhelming.
The Telegraph quotes an expert,
who has watched the progress of Anarchism in Great Britain and Europe
tor years, as saying that London is
not the only centre of Anarchism in
Great Britain. There are anarchist
clubs all over the country. Every
large centre of population contains
them. Hull Is one of their chief
homes. Nenrly nil the incendiaries
reaching Greet Britain from the Continent enter by way of Hull- Leeds
is another centre, while in Glasgow,
not only Anarchism but Nihilism has
a firm foothold. Nearly all the desperadoes are foreigners, and doubtless they will continue to frequent
the country until laws are made conferring on the British police the
same powers of expulsion enjoyed by
the police of other countries.
Must Make Some Move.
The question now pressing for solution ls what the future policy of the
British authorities toward avowed
conspirators against human life who
make ther headquarters ln this
country will be. There are many
signs that public sentiment, and official sentiment ns well, has undergone a great change In the last few
years. By many, however, lt is argued that the venomous crew can he
suppressed only by means of laws so
drastic us to violate the principles of
personal liberty which Billons hold
so dear. It is further pointed out that
the expulsion of Anarchists from
Britain, or their Imprisonment, say,
as lunatics, would incite most determined reprisals by many unknown
members of the infernal fraternity.

An Impending change In the control

Points Relative to the General Culture
of This Crop.
A writer in the Massachusetts
Plowman, who has considerable experience ln the growing of oats as a
farm crop, calls attention to the following polnta relative to the general
culture of the crop. These points were
gained through actual experience and
experiments carried on by this authority and may be of value to the
Late varieties are as heavy ylelders
as early oats, lf sown at the Bame
time. It Is advisable to sow early and
late varieties of the snme color.
Seed of any variety should be run
once or twice through a good fanning
mill in ordor to eliminate small, Inferior kernels and to clean out tho
trash. Test the vitality of the seed
by placing- one hundred kernels ln a
germlnator or plant them in a plate
of moist sand, covering with another
smaller plate, and maintaining the
surrounding temperature at about 76
degrees. A fifty-cent thermometer
will Indicate the temperature.
Sow seed thick or thin, according
to Its vitality nnd the condition of
the seedbed, 2>_ bushels per acre being considered about the proper
amount of the common varieties for
corn-belt latitudes. Seed Infested with
Btnttt should be treated for live minutes tn water heated to 138 degrees.
Next year's crop will be smut free.
Treated seed should be sown by hnnd
the same day treated, although an end-
gate seeder may be used with a fair
degree of success.
The notably early varieties are
Early Champion, Fourth of July and
Red Rust Proof. The best late varieties are Black Tartarian and Improved
Clydesdale. The two largest ylelders
are Lincoln and Twentieth Century;
two lightest ylelders. Red Rust Proof
and Welcome. Best drouth resistors,
Black Tartarian, a purely bred, fine
medium late oat.
The field for oats should be prepared by a lapped-disking at right angles
to, and another disking parallel with
the lust cultlvntlon of the corn. If
the disc has sufficient weight the surface will be thoroughly chopped and
the stalks cut up. Broadcasted seed
should Se covered at about two Inches
deep. An ordinary steel-frame tooth
harrow may be used for covering. An
Implement like the Acme harrow will
do more uniform work and cover the
seed deeper. That every kernel should
bo covered is essential to a good stand.
Plowing previous year corn land for
oats is not warranted by the Increased
yield secured. Thorough discing of
such land with a heavy, sharp disc
renders breaking unnecessary. Plowing did not prove detrimental, as lt
wns not deep enough to loosen the
soil below the point that would be
reached by a good disc harrow. Examination for smut should be mado before nny of the oat heads turn yellow.
Plans should be very closely examined. Three counts of one hundred
plants each in different parts of the
field should be made.
Harvest the crop when the seed
eonts have uniformly turned yellow,
Oats cut about half green shrink considerably, and the germinating power
ls weakened.
Thresh as soon as practicable, from
the shock. If the work ls deferred
rains may Injure the grain. Tha
threshing machine should be run
empty at least fifteen minutes before
beginning to thresh the crop from
threshed oats. This will guard against
Infesting the grain with smut from untreated crops.

Turf Novelty.
An amusing novelty on the turf
was Introduced at a Madras fair. It
took the form of a handicap for all
animals bred ln the country, the competitors Including buffaloes, elephants, a goat, ram, emu, elk besides
pmies ard horses, and was ;,cpularly
known as the "Noah's Ark Race." The
elephants were as placid as if moving
in a marriage procession, and went
over the course at a quick walk. The
i am and the goat, ridden by little
boys, ran well, and the buffaloes went
at a good gallop; but the emu would
not si.r, neither would the elk until
the end of the race, when It took
liight und darted down the course at
great speed. Finally the rain was
the winner, a horse coming in second
and a buffalo third.

them Is Roy Davidson, who resides

says: "My nephew, Roy, had weak
kidneys. About a year ago he took
the measles and this left him in n
bad state. His kidneys were so weak
thut they were incapable of performing their functions. He suffered from
backache, weakness and restlessness
For a timo he had to leave school.
Our family doctor was unable to help
him. In fact he told me that Roy
might never get better; that the
disease would probably grow worse.
I then procured a supply of Dn. Wil-
Hams' Pink Pills. I had already used
the Pills myself with great benefit
nnd felt confident that they would
cure Roy. He began taking them
and continued their use until he had

A Mine of Information Contained In a
Government Bulletin.
There ls probably no natural element, barring theair we breathe, with
which we come in closer contact than
the soil under our feet, yet at the same
time no element about which we possess less speciflc information, it is a
wondrous realm, full of fascination
and interest Farmers'' bulletin No.
245, issued by the United States Department of Agriculture and entitled
"Renovation of Woinout Soils," contains a mine of information on the subject and should be in tbe hands of
every farmer and be studied as a
primer of agriculture. It Is from this
we glean the following facts about the
soil and plant life: The soil consists
of organic and Inorganic matter. Under the flrst heading are Included all
elements ln the soil that are subject
to vital processes (growth and decay);
under the second, those elements that
are not subject to these changes—1. e,
minute portions of stone and gravel
The elements named are permeated by
the soil air and water. It ls the latter
—the moisture In the soil—that contains the plant food substances, and it
Is these that possess most interest and
value from the ht_nian standpoint.
These substances are divided Into two
classes, according to their ultimate
source. The soil furnishes nine of the
thirteen chemical elements used ln
plant growth—phosphorus, potassium,
calcium, sodium, Iron, silicon, chlorine
and sulphur. Nearly all varieties of
rock particles, of which the soil quite
largely consists, contain more or less
of these elements. Every year the soil
water dissolves a thin surface layer
from each particle, and lt Is this solution which furnishes the plant its mineral food.
In addition to the elements named,
the plant In Its growth requires hydrogen, which lt secures from water j
(which ls a compound of hydrogen and |
oxygen); oxygen, which lt secures
partly from water and partly from the
air; carbon, which ls secured from the
carbonic acid gas ln the air, and nitrogen, which ln many respects ls the
most Important of all the plant food
elements. As lt is not found ln the rock
particles of the soil, plants have to depend for their supply upon decaying
organic matter—manure and other fertilizers. Being very soluble, the nitrates quickly wash out of the soil unless appropriated by growing crops. It
ls ta supplying nitrogen to the soil that
the legumes possess so great value for
the agriculturist. There is a certain
species of bacteria that can use atmospheric nitrogen, the supply of which is
unlimited, and the clover, bean and pea
families have learned to swap work
with them. When these bacteria are
present in a soil ln which leguminous
crops are growing they Invade the
roots of the plants and live there, their
presence being shown by swellings—
tubercles. Nitrogen from tho soil air
Alters Into the roots, where the bacteria appropriate lt, manufacture an
abundance of nitrates and give It to
the plant In return for starch. The tissues of the plants thus become very
rich in nitrogen compounds, which
they set free when decay sets In and
which are available for any growing
crop. A condition of soil that likewise
greatly favors the growth of the plant
is produced by humus, decaying vegetable matter, which may or mny not
be rich In nitrates, but which renders
possible a proper circulation of air In
the soil and those chemical actions
which accompany a decay of organic
matter. Oue of the most Important objects of plowing Is thus seen to be a
loosening of the soil and a mixing of
fresh air with It. This ls but part of
the Btory, but still enough to show that
fixed natural laws underlie and govern
all agricultural operations, and that
there is no field of effort where a greater measure of Intelligence is needed
nor in which intelligent effort Is more
surely or generously rewarded.
The Critical Ages.
It is calculated that tbe amount of
heat given off by the human body
within 24 hours would be sufficient, lf
concentrated, to bring a nine-inch
cube to a white heat. It Is this heat
which literally burps up the body,
antl the very flrst day tbat a man
ceases to renew the tissues by taking
food he loses about half a pound or
u pound in weight. Brain-workers
give off a greater amount of heat than
physical laborers; hence they are
more liable to collapse. After overwork they are obliged to lie up till
they can obtain more capital—In oilier word, they have been consumed by
the lire of the body nt a quicker rate

quantity of fresh tissue and muscle.

8tatistioa For England and Wales For
tha Year 1904—Enormous Total
of Persons Tried.
A bluebook was Issued recently, says
Lloyd's Weekly, by the Home Office
giving the criminal statistics of Eng-,
land and Wales for the year 1904. It
shows that the total number of persons
tried for various offences during the U
months was 807,139, as compared with
803,696 ln tho previous 12 months, tha
convictions being 665,379 against 660,-
300. The persons Imprisoned numbered
199,153, as oomparcd with 189,727 In
1903, aind the number of convlots ln
prison on March 31 was 20,099. The
figures, It ls stated, axe not all of equal
value as criteria of the state of crime,
but they all Indicate an Increase of
crlmInaJty. The total number of persons for trial for IndlctaJbIe offences
were 69,960, or 177.69 per 100,000
population, being an Increase of 1,616,
or nearly -three per cent
There has been a continuous growth
of crime since 1899, when the number
of persons tried was 50,494, or 156.97
per 100,000 of the population. For many
years prior to that year, however, there
was a steady decline, with occasional
Interruptions, in the number of persons tried, and In 1899 the total was
less than in- any previous year since
1875. During the quinquennial period
1860-4 the annual average waa 280 per
100,000 population, compared with 183
ln the last quinquennial period. Ths
Increase ln 1904 was wholly In offences
against property. Tho only offence
against the person which showed a
marked tendency ln Increase Is bigamy,
for which the figure was 138, the quinquennial avei-a*.— for 1896-9 and 1900-4
being 104 and 112 respectively.
It la satisfactory to observe that
those classes of offences usually committed *by habitual criminals have ceased to Increase at the same rapid rate
as formerly. Cornwall is still one of
the countics with the least crime.
Glamorgan and Monmouth are still tha
worst counties, but the position of _on
don has slightly Improved. The worst
counties for drunkenness arc Northum
berland, Glamors-.—, Durham, and I—n
don, the best position aa regards the
off once heing taken by a large group of
rural counties. Minor offences of dishonesty and serious frauds and breaches of trust hj_ 'ner—-sed, and offences
ot the vagrancy class are growing
During the year 9.918 persons were
convicted ln Courts of Assize and Quarter Sessions, of whom 28 were sentenced to death, 970 to penal servitude,
7,89» to imprisonment, and 91 to detention —i an Inebriate reformatory; 55
pere—ns were found gui.ty but Insane;
1.896 were acquitted, and ln 38 cases a
Jury found the accused to be insane
Sad unfit to plead, while 16 persons
were ordered to be whipped or flogged,
—he total number of persons dealt with
by Courts of Summary Jurisdiction was
794,981, of whom 655,461 were convicted, I
84,160 being sentenced to Imprisonment. I
During the yeur 36.269 coroners' Inquests were he—. In 2.357 cases open
verdicts were returned, and, deducting
ono case of Justlfialble homicide and 16
executions of portions condemned to
d——h, 4,888 deaths wero ascribed to
criminal violence or culpable neglect.
Of these 3,327 were cases of suicide, a
docrca.se of 163 as compared with tba
previous year. Tire continuous increase
In suicides, frequently referred to In
previous volumes of tho ortmlnal statisticsI, has thus received a cheok. Verdicts of wilful murder were returned ln
191 cases, and of mansraughtor ln 126.
The number of criminal luna/tlcs received Into asylums during 1904 was
235, and at the end of the year the total nurrtber of criminal lunatics undor
detention was 901, of whom no' fewer
than 407 had committed murder. Out
of 28 sentences of death, 11 were commuted to penal servitude for life, and
three free pairdon.. were _f—.nted.

Chlorophyll Is perhnps the most Important coloring substance ln tbe
world, for upon this snhstnnce depend
the characteristic uctlvlty of plants, the
synthesis of complex compounds from
carbon dioxide nnd water process, upon
which the existence of nil living things
Is ultlinutely conditioned. Only In- a
very few unimportant forms devoid of
chlorophyll cun the synthesis of complex from simple compounds or from
the elements be accomplished The
function of chlorophyll may ouly be
comprehended when lis chief physical
properties are understood. These may
be best Illustrated by placing n gruin
of chopped leu ves of grass or geranium
In a few cubic centimeters of strong
alcohol for nu hour.
Such n solution will be of a bright,
Clear green color, nnd when the vessel
containing it Is held In such a manner
tbat the sunlight Is reflected from the
Burface of the liquid It will appear

length of the ruys of light of the violet
nnd of the spectrum In such a manner
as to make them coincide with those of
the red end. It Is by examination of
light which bus passed through n solution of chlorophyll, however, thnt tho
greatest Insight Into Its physical properties mny be gullied. If such a rny of
light Is passed through a prism nnd
spread out on n screen, It mny be seen
thut there nro several Inrge Intervnls

ruys of light whleh would bave occupied these spaces hnvo been absorbed
by the chlorophyll und couverted Into

energy is directly available to the'protoplasm containing the chlorophyll, and
by menus of It the synthesis of complex substance may bo accomplished.

And of sorrow's driving rain,

And put by our foolish tenrs,
And through all the coming years
