Glendenning looks neither to xhe
right nor left, but with his keen eyes
on. the flying horse before him, urges
.Judge Morrow onward, and the gallant little colt responds to that
thrilling voice. He has reached Pes-
sara's flank, and inch by inch he is
surely gaining on him.
The mad shouts about him are
deafening, but he sees only tho
white face of Olive Kneeland like a
loadstar before him.
Pessara begins to show signs of
impatience and distress; the foam
rovers his chest, and his eyes flash.
It is all his rider can do to urge him
onward with knee, spur, und lash.
There is only one more rod to cover.
Pessara and J udge Morrow are side
by side, neck to neck, both increasing their speed with every whirling
stride. Suddenly Pessara falters ever
So slightly. 51 en and women hold
their breath. Then, quick as a flash,
as if shot from a bow, gallant littlo
.Judge Morrow passes him by a lap.
It is done so swiftly, so suddenly,
anil so masterfully that a great cry
of delight breaks from the vast multifile of  spectators.
One instant more, and the cry has
deepened into a mighty, deafening
yell, Little Judge Morrow, with a
passionate strain of mighty muscle,
irnd the tense glare of straining eye-
bal's, like a bird passes under tho
wire and past the grand stand, and a
moment later the victor stands panting and trembling at the spot whero
they have led Olive Kneeland.
The girl forgets the great throng;
the man who hnn gallantly ridden
him on to victory and to fortune forgets everything but the panting,
beautiful horso whom the eager thousands are crowding and pushing one
another wildly to catch a glimpse of.
And in the excitement Roger Glendenning slips away quite unnoticed in
the  crowd.
The next morning's paper gavo a
full account of th? great race, together with the encouraging report
that little Judge Morrow hud been
sold for a great sum, and the money
had been paid cash down on the
spot to the fair young girl who
owned him. Considerable comment
was made in reference to the sudden
disappearance of the man who had
ridden him; and it. further stated in
the article that it was to be hoped
he would put in an appearance at
once and receive the congratulations,
and, better 'still, the money that
awaited him. The same paper also
stated that Miss Kneeland would
take the Albany boat that evening
to join the judge.
Glendenning could never account for
the impulse which prompted him to
take the same boat, though it cost
him the last dollar he had in the
world. As soon as he stepped on
deck he saw her, standing at the
further end of the bont, with her little hands resting lightly on the rail,
gazing dreamily into the water. How
sweet and fair she looked, ond how
thoughtful! He looked about for his
brother Oscar, He was not there. A
feeling of fierce, angry impatience
stirred Roger's heart that he should
neglect her so. Why was he not wilh
her? If there was anything in the
world he detested, it was to see a
mnn neglect the lady to whom he
wns ix'trothi'd for anything the wide
world held. The man who ditl it was.
in his opinion, unworthy the name of
mnn—a despicable creature too mean
to waste a thought on. He wondered why Olive, who wus naturally so
high-spirited, did not resent it.
She' appeared to lie quite alone.
For long hours he snt uud Watched
her. Ah! how sweet it was to bo so
near her, breathe the sumo air with
her—so near that he could almost
reach her dress with his outstretched hands. She stood quite still, forgetful of all time, deeply engrossed In
her own reverie.
The sun went down, and slowly and
softly the dusk gathered, settling
down inlo the black shadows of
night. The moon rose, nnd one by
one the golden stars caine out» and
fixed themselves in the deep blue sky
overhead, mirroring their brilliant
twinkling in the dancing, U'hl.o-
enpped waves below in a thousand
arrowy gleams. Still Olive Kneoland
stood there, little dreaming llmt ho
of whom she wus thinking was so
near her.

Kneeland stood in the same place,
watching the swinging lights dimpling in tho curling  waves.
At length Glemlenuing grew very
anxious over her, und sent one of
the boat hands to remind her she had
had no refreshment, and that she
must be tired standing.
"You aro very kind to think of
me," sho returned, simply, "but 1
am  neither hungry nor  tired,  thank
you.   1 prefer to stand."
And the man touched his cap and
left her.
Glendenning still lingered near her.
The wind had freshened, und the stars
were hidden by ominous dark clouds
that presaged , a storm, but she did
not seem to mind, though it was
now so chill that all *.ne passengers
had sought the shelter of tho comfortable cabin save a stray man here
and there pacing rapidly up and
down to keep warm.
Glendenning feared for her, standing motionless there in tho cold. She
had loaned far over the rail now,
gazing intently down into the white-
capped waves that dashed their
foamy crest almost up to the deck
in their sportive play. Suddenly, as
he watched her, the boat gave an unexpected lurch forward; then those on
deck heard a shrill, sharp cry of
terror, and almost before they could
realize what was happening, they
saw the girl lose her balance and
fall headlong tlown into the water,
and ere they could reach the spot tho
mad waves had closed over her.
But simultaneously with that piteous cry there rose another, full of
sharp horror,' and they saw the man
who had been standing near her
throw off his coat and hat and
plunge in after the girl.
In an instant the wildest .commotion reigned; the bells were rung,
passengers crowded to the decks, and
the most intense excitement prevailed.
Tho steamer had dashed on fully a
furlong ere it could be stopped.
Boats were quickly lowered, but
every face was blanched. No one had
seen either the girl or the young man
who had sprung so nobly to her rescue 'appear after the waves had
swallowed them.
Three, four minutes passed, the
length of eternity to the men who
sat in the skiff, which was shooting
about with the rapidity of lightning
wherever a dark object could be discerned on the waves.
At length they bchdld a white hand
cleave the dark water, and an instant later two heads appeared above
the waves, then sink quite as quickly.
"Pull, lads—pull with a will!" cried
the man in the stern of the boat.
"It's all up with them, I fear; they
must have gone down then for tho
third time." But at that moment
they all saw the white hand thrust
from the waves again, and knew that
the brave rescuer, v.'ith his heavy
burden, wus making superhuman efforts to keep above water, and that
his strength would |iot last him
many seconds longer. They shouted
to him lustily, and he heard them,
and caught the rope they flung out to
him, and in less time than it takes to
tell it he was drawn into the skill,
still grasping his dripping, almost
lifeless burden, and was soon drawn
on board the steamer.
Gentle hands relieved his stiffeno-
arms of their burden, and while restoratives were applied to the young
tady and the work of resuscitation
was pushed rapidly forward, others
turned their uttention to the young
hero, who, as soon as he realized
that they were safe on deck and the
danger over, fell back in a deep
As 'they bent over him, forcing
brandy between his white lips, the
attendants in charge made a startling discovery—the man hud been in
disguise! The action of the water
had almost removed the black dye
from his face, his hair, anil his
iloiidc moustache, and they found thnt
ho was very fair, instead of the dark
young man he had Appeared.
They went quietly to the captain,
telling whnt a strange discovery the.v
had made, antl he decided that the
proper course to pursue would be to
keep the young man under strict surveillance until he could ascertain who
nnd what ho was.
By this lime the boat had reached
Albany, antl everybody hastened
ashore, all save Miss Kneeland.
Judge Kneoland, thou.fi very weak
from his recent illness, had come
down in a carriage to the boat to
meet his daughter.
Grent was his consternation when
she did not make her appearance with
the rest, for lie had caught a glimpse
of her walking' hurriedly along tho
Immediately upon gaining consciousness, Olive learned how narrowly she hud escaped drowning, and
that her rescuer lay in the next cabin
in a rather precarious condition, but
b.v that timr he had no doubt come
out  of his deep, trance-like swoon.
"Let mo go to him, please, and
thank him for saving my life," she
pleaded. "I must do this."
The captain gave the young lady
his arm, and they proceeded at onco
to the opposite cabin.
At the door he was hurriedly called  nway,   and  Olive entered  alone.
The cabin  was  dimly  lighted,    but
ving was to be presented to Queen
Victoria and was delighted nt the honor. An officious court functionary took
it upon himself to tell the player "uot
to mention this matter outside" lest
other actors, such as Mr. Toole, might
think that they should be presented
too. "Let me tell you, sir," said Irving,
"that Mr. Toole Is not only a deservedly renowned comedian; he is also a
truly Christian gentleman. Toole often
saved me from adversity, perhaps starvation, when I wns uukuown. If Johu
L. Toole is uot worthy to be presented
to her most gracious majesty, neither is
Henry Irving. I wish you good day,

er voice his hands dropped from his
face. He had risen to his feet and
stood tremblingly before her, and tho
light of the swinging lamp falling
full upon him, revealed to her Roger  Glendenning  in  the  flesh.
For an instant she stood before
him paralyzed. Was it some mad
dream? Were here eyes and sense of
seeing playing her false? Was it. ho
whom they said lay charred and unrecognizable beneath the ruins of the
great lire? And then she remembered
that there were others who were
equally as sure that he had escaped.
He was standing before her—no myth
surely—looking at her with that
slow, sad, wistful smile she remembered so well, and his whole heart
shining in his earnest blue eyes.
"Is this Mr. Roger Glendenning?"
she gasped, brokenly, retreating a
step and still gazing at him with
those dilated eyes of hers. "Can it.
be?" her hand dropping heavily to
her side.
He bowed humbly, and his head
drooped low on his breast.
"I am indeed that most unfortunate of persons," he answered, huskily; and the wonder crossed his mind
vaguely, how could she have penetrated his disguise so quickly? He
had quite forgotten that the water
must have removed most of the dye.

The hyacinth has its name from
Greek mythology. Aecordlug to the
story as told by Ovid, llynclnthiin, u

Kephyrus, being envious of the attachment of Apollo aud Hyae.utlius, so

standpoint convicts must be given some
form of work while serving their sentences, and It Ls perhaps Immaterial
what this work may be, Its products
will find the way into the markets of
the world. Not only are protests
coming from labor organizations, but
the manufacturers are equally pronounced ln their opinion that prison
labor should be taken out of tho range,
of competition w.th free labor.
Convicts must be kept at work,
otherwise penitentiaries will become
mere asylums for the Idler and the
tramp, and a haven of rest to the criminal. On the other hand, Industrial Interests demand a modification of the
present system of prison employment.
They go further and say that the
manufactured articles coming from the
penitentiaries sho\ild be so designated.
What, then. Is to be our disposition,

hers. She owed him a debt of grati
tilde that could never be repaid.
He saw her hesitate, and he well
knew the reason why. He could read
the emotion in her breast from the
troubled expression of her eyes.
He held out his hand entreatingly.
"I—I—would have given a dozen
lives if I had had them to have saved yours," he murmured. "But now
that you know it is I, do you refuse to clasp my hand for one little
moment, Olive—Miss Kneeland?"
She stood before him with drooping head and face deathly white, her
whole frame trembling.
"It is not nn honest hand," she
sobbed. "It has been raised against
my father to do him injury. How
can I take it?"
"Forget that I have made the request," he replied, with sudden dignity blended with reproach, sinking
back in his chair again, and covering his face with his hands.
At that moment one of the deckhands entered, approached Glendenning, and remarked as he extended a
bit of printed paper he held in his
hand, and which apparently had been
torn from some book or paper.
"You wanted this taken from the
breast-pocket    of     your    wet    coat,

lays in retirement, her personal interest in nurses and nursing is as
keen as ever, it was nearly half a
century aince she devoted the national   Crimea  testimonial  of     £50.-
000 to the foundation of the Nightingale Home for training nurses. The
other day the Mayor of Derby gavo
a garden purty at Lea Hurst (Miss
Nightingale's former home) to the
nurses of Derby and district, and
Miss Nightingale sent them a cheery
message. "We hear," she wrote, "a
good deal nowadays about nursing __■
a profession, but the question for
each nurse is, Am I living up to my
profession? The nurse's life is above
.ill a moral und practical Ine—a life
not of show, but of practical action.

work, and may each one strive with

her profession, and to rise continually to a higher level of thought and

A Great Task Awaiting Labor,
her I For several years past the practl-
in- cablllty of eloslng tbe Strait of Belle-
Isle has been much discussed by transatlantic shipping Interests. The most
skilful engineers l,ii the country are nt
opinion that the project Is a feasible
one. The Belle Isle route is dangerous to navigation, and in the spring nf
the year, makes a passage-way for Immense fields of lee that drift down,
with the tide from the northern seas,
as a result of whleh the Gulf lg bloclted
for weeks and huge Icebergs find their
way Into the path of ocean liners sou IK
of Sable Island.
The Strait ls not very deep, but the-
current rushes through It with fearful
velocity. On either side are high
mountains of bare and solid rock, and
ln these we have an abundance of material with which to bridge this passage of water, which ls only about nine
miles wide at the narrowest part.
By contract labor, the work would,
as already stated, cost an enormous.

it would be comparatively small. The

Every one has noticed how, when a
large branch of a tree is cut off, small
branches will shoot out around the
stump. These branches are from the
reserve buds, of which all trees have a
great number at every portion of their
surface. Under ordinary circumstances
these never come to maturity, but when
the tree is wounded or cut off or loses
some of ita branches the reserve buds
at once come into play and renew the
The old Roman charioteers, and heroes wounded by wild beasts in
the now ruined Colosseum at Rome, anointed their wounds with secret balms, made from roots and herbs. Instinct tolls us to rub a
place that hurts and in Zam-Buk the great herbal balm, is found tho
id<-l substance to rub with. Zam-Buk differs irom ordinary salves,
ointment, etc, in the important fact that it contains no trace of
any minerhl substance and is also free from any animal oil or fat.
It is composed of the finest herbal essences and juices and so refined
that the most delicate skin can absorb it with beneficial effect. It is
at one and the same time healing, soothing and antiseptic. It does
more, does it better and in less time than any other known balm. Use
it for all skin injuries and diseases.
Mr. A. White of the Assiniboia Hotel, Medicine Hat, says:— "Some
time ago I nTeeived a severe abrasion on the leg and a fraotured shin
bone. I did not treat the injury very seriously for about two weeks,
when it got very bad, and I went into a hospital. An operation was
performed, and after two weeks' treatment I oame out. At that time
the wound was not healed up, so I decided to try Zam-Buk.. It was so
satisfactory that I continued with its use, and the wound is now entirely healed. I only wish I had known about Zam-Buk when the accident
happened, as it would have saved me many dollars and a great deal ol

now   Bees  Gather  Honey.
A bee gatheis honey by tho aid of
Its "trunk," "lower lip" or "tongue,"
which Is used as au instrument for extracting the nectar from flowers. The
"tongue" of a bee is not, as was once
thought to be the case, a tube through
which the juice is sucked, but is built
more after the fashion of a fine broom.
With this broom the bee brushes or
laps the honey or houey material from
the flowers, leaves, etc., and passes it
tlown a groove in the upper surface of
the tongue to the mouth proper. From
that point the juice is conveyed
through a minute orifice into the "first
stomach," vulgarly called the "honey
bag." The honey bag Is a real chemical laboratory, where by some mysterious process which has not yet been
explained by science the juices are
converted Into pure honey. When the
chemical process of transforming the
nectar into viscid houey has been completed the bee disgorges It into one of
the cells made for the purpose of a receptacle. For years the mlcroscopists
and the entomologists have been studying the bee's laboratory, but its workings are at present among the unex-
nlained mysteries.

A Rheumatic Sufferer Cured by Dr.
Williams'  Pink Pills.
Rheumatism is rooted in the blood
—that is a medical fact every poor
rheumatic sufferer should know.
Liniments and outward applications
cannot possibly cure rheumatism.
They are a waste of money, and while
the sufferer is using them the disease
is steadily growing worse—is slowly
but surely taking a firmer grasp upon
tne entire system. Rheumatism must
be treated through the blood. That
is tne only way in which tho poisonous acid can be driven out. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills actually make
new blood and thus cure rheumatism.
Every dose o; these pills helps to
make new rich red blood wliich
sweeps the poisonous acid from the
system, loosens the aching joints and
muscles and gives the rheumatic new
health free from pain. Among those
who can bear witness to tlie truth of
these statements is Miss Dorsina
Langlois, of St. Jerome, Que., for
weary months she suffered from
rheumatism and had begun to think
she was incurable. "I could not
straighten up" says Miss Langlois,
"My limbs were almost useless, so
stiff were they. For many months I
endured such pains as only rheumatic sufferers can understateid. Although only thirty ^ears of age the.
suffering I endured actually made
me look like an old woman. I used
liniments and tried several medicines
but got not the slightest help until
almost by chance my attention was
directed to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
I began taking them and in the
course of a few weeks 1 could see
they were helping nie. Little by
little the pain begun to go, and the
stiffness to leave iny joints. I continued taking tlie pills for several
months when every symptom of tlie
tumble had disappeared. 1 have not
felt a twinge of rheumatism j since,
and I bless the day Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills came to my notice."
Dr. Williams Pink Pills never fail
to cure rheumatism because they go
right to the root of the trouble in the
blood. That is why these pills cure
all the common ailments due to poor
and watery blood, such as anaemia,'
headaches and backaches, indigestion,
neuralgia, St. Vitus dance, general
weakness, and the uistressing irregularities that ufllict women and gl'OW-
jing girls. If you need a medicine
you will save money by taking Dr.
Williams' Pink Pilis at once. See
that the full name Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People is printed
on the wrapper around every box.

The great popularity of new waists
this season will doubtless be continued
into the spring.
Considerable use of grey and black
has been .made this season in lines of
misses' andohildreu'Bwear.
It is predicted thatstripes will be preferred to plaids or checks in the high
end of spring buying.
Long chiffon veils with dots and
Chautilly laoe borders come in all colors
and are considered smart.
Children's coats, of imitation bearskin, a trakhan, caracul and similar
fabrics are meeting with favor.
The rage for Scotch plaids is iucrsas-
ing. The belt manufacturers are simply Bwept with orders.
Little, girls' school dresses made of
washable poplin. Scotch madras, serge
and plaid wool dress goods.
Boas continue to be ono of the big

that it would be to the advantage of

would save tho Municipality legal expenses, for minor difficulties aud preveut

At the meetiug of the South Vauoouver School Board on Monday, a very
largely signed petition was presented
by a delegation asking for the reinstatement of Principal Robt. M Robson at
North Arm School. The Board refused
to reconsider the dismissal of tho popular teacher, and members of the delegation ara reported to have become very
angry with the Board. The Board's
reason, as given out, is "dissatisfaction."
Judging from this instance, the new
school law makes it practically impossible for any school seotiou to choose its
teachers or retain those they like, boing
compelled to submit to the choico of the
Board. It giveB tho School Inspectors
the chnuce to iuflueuce the Board iu
appointing teachers or members of tho
liiiiu'd oan appoint favorites. Iu the
present caso the school district want a
certain teacher, the Board ia determined
to get rid of him and tho locality interested has no representation ou the Board

Good Games to
HAVE you played Pillow Dance?
Take pillows, sofa cushions or
hassocks and place them on
end around on the floor.
Divide the company into two sides,
facing each other. Let them join
hands antl danco around the pillows
a number of times until suddenly one
Bide at a signal pulls the other side
forward, trying tu force some one or
other of that side to overturn a pillow.
A merry scrimmage follows until at
List one side or other is guilty of
overturning a pillow. Whoever did It
must drop out of the game, disgraced (!), and the. game goes on, one
after another having to drop out, until, finally, only one of each Bide is left.
These two fight it out until one or
other triumphs, while the disgraced
players stand about and cheer their
respective champions on.   '
Hopping and jumping are both per
mitted as means of avoiding a collision with a pillow.
A variation of the game of Tag is
known as Flag-Tag.
Divide the players into two sides as
usual, each choosing its captain.
Make a chalk-line between the lines
and paint a Hag on each side, twenty
feet from the chalk-line.
Each side must protect its flag, while
skirmishers are sent forward to try to
capture the Hag belonging to the other
The captains only can "tag"—this being their way of capturing prisoners.
AU prisoners must go immediately to
jail; that Is, drop out of the game.
There is room for much strategy and
cleverness In this game. Suppose the
opposing captain is after you': Douge
him this way and that, and meanwhile
get one of your fellow-players to try to
distract his attention by feigning to attack his flag. If he succeeds in divert*
ing the captain's pursuit to himself,
that gives you your chance to make a
dash for the Hag, seizing it and possibly returning safely and triumphantly
home with it, although you will have
your troubles, for the gallant d< fenders
of the flag, even though they cannot
"tag" you, can struggle to retain tho
Hag, while shouting to their captain to
come and "tag"  you.
Whenever your side succeeds in cap-
luring the flag, the conquered side must
hunfhlv walk in your train as prisoners,
while you march triumphantly around
the block once or twice with the captured flag at the head of your procession.
Another delightful game is as suitable
for indoors as out. It is known as clairvoyance.
One goes out of the room and
a word is chosen. And as she enters, you ask, "Is it a —?" naming
some article whose flrst letter is the
first letter of the word she is to guess.
Then ask,  "Is It a  ?"'naming some
article where the first letter Is the second letter of the word to be guessed,
and son on till the word is complete.
Thus, suppose the word was "curtain."
Your question could be: "Is it a candle?
Is it an umbrella? Is it a rat? Is It a
table? ls it an apple? Is it Ice? Is it
a needle?" By this time she has found,
hy remembering the first letters of each
word, that "curtain" hs what was chosen. Of course, shorter words can be

are not powerless—those who have

(Part II Next Week.)
WHEN the world was quite
young, there were giants In the
land, and the land I mean
was neither here, there, nor
anywhere else in particular; still it did
exist, because It was in the days when
the fairies used to dance in the dells
and dwelt all day In the  flowers.
But the giants knew nothing of the
fairies, because they lived in the capital
of Squankland, and the other inhabitants only smiled incredulously when
the beautiful elves, who led such happy
lives, were mentioned.
Now, in a small village tn Squankland,
called Dellydale, there dwelt a dwarf
whose name was Quantock, and he lived
u life of persecution, because the inhabitants were of a quarrelsome nature
and could not agree many days together
with any one. It was said of them that
they would quarrel with their own
shadows if there was nothing else to
Hnd fault with. They were a most discontented lot, those dwellers in Dellydale, and because they could not be
happy themselves and enjoy the glorious
sunlight, they hated to see any one else
And yet they were handsome, tall and
prosperous people, in a splendid country, where the grapes grew In profusion
and where the purest of wine flowed, as
it were, like milk and honey. For they
were makers of a delicious wine that
was specially prepared for all sick and
ailing folk.
This industry in itself, one would
think, would have had a cheering influence on their natures, but the contrary
was the case. They were a grumpy lot,
and grumbled at everything, just like
that remarkable person who longed for
something, she did not know what, and
when she got it, she did not want it,
Quantock the Dwarf had no human
companion to talk to, so he used to
tell all his troubles every night to the
fairies when the moon rode high In
the heaven's; and sometimes he
thought they answered him and told
him not to be cast down.
He lived with ■ his great-grandmother away in the valley beside a
bubbling brook that reflected the sunlight In a thousand different shades.
He was sadly deformed, and had to
hobble about with a stick; and it was
the delight of the village children.
"When he visited Dellydale to buy food
for the little house, since his old
great-grandmother could only sit outside the hut and sun herself throughout the day, it was a delight of the
village children to take away his
staff, so that he had either to wait
until some one more kind than the rest
isiot under Control.

A Cat With Wings.
The boatswain of the "Caspian," an

which he always referred to as his

probably some freak of the animal
world. It ia two oalrs of wings, but

should give him a h..plng hand or
e).se crawl home as best he could
without assistance.
This pleased these naughty children
more than ever, for, as poor Quantock,
with tears in his eyes, moved slowly
along on his hands and knees they
would dance around him all the way
and jeer at him for being misshapen
and ugly.
This unfair, unjust and cruel treatment lasted for many long months,
but, in spite of It all, Quantock'- sweet
and generous nature remained unspoiled, and he never wished them any
harm In return.
One day, when they were more than
usually vicious through never being
checked by their misguided parents,
the village children seized Quantock
and threw him into the centre of a
small patch that was surrounded by
briars and nettles, and there he lay
for hours, stunned and bleeding.
Now, in the village lived a sweet little maiden called Elvina, whose
sweetheart was the great Stormont,
who hated the puny dwarf and forbade Elvina ever to speak to him. It
so happened on the night that Quantock was lying In the briar patch,
moaning with pain and just waking
from his unconsciousness, that Stormont and Elvina passed that way.
They heard the cries, and Stormont
was for going to the rescue, but when
he saw it was Quantock he only
laughed and dragged Elvina away,
though she begged of him to assist
the helpless dwarf out of his difficulty.
Still Stormont laughed, and a deep
anguish sank into Elvlna's heart and
her sympathies went out to the dwarf
as she reluctantlv went with Stormont
to her home. When she said "Goodnight" to Stormont she did not go indoors at once, but said she would rest
by the garden gate and drink in the
evening air.
Then, when Stormont was out of
sight, she got a hedge knife and ran
as fast as she could to where Quantock was Imprisoned and cut away
enough of the briars to enable the
dwarf to craw! through. Then she cut
him a thick stick from a tree close
by, and was going to leave, when he
begged she would tell him her name.
At last she whispered, quite bashfully,
And that night the dwarf blessed
Elvina, and when he was well again
he told* the fairies all about her.
Quantock explained to his old great-
grandmother that he,, was not strong
enough to go to the village again for
a long time, and so they would have
to   eat  and  drink  sparingly  of what

"Yes, you know so many curious
things about insects ' added Helen.
"Do tell us something to while away
this rainy evening."
.. "Well, I will first tell you about a
spider that builds for himself a craft
out of leaves, on which he sails over
the water in search of prey. This fairy
boat he makes by putting the leaves
carefully together, one over another,
and binding tliem with silken cords,
which he spins."
"What a clever idea!" exclaimed Paul.
"What sort of spider are these shipbuilders?"
"They arc members of the Dolomodes
fimbriotus family—that Is their scientific
name—and I regret to say they are
pirates, as fierce and bold as ever sailed the seas. In appearance, they are
large and brown in color, having around
the body a band, or sash, of rich orange,
barred in an odd manner; a double row
of white spots adorn the under side of
the stomach, looking like buttons on a
waistcoat, and the legs are a light red."
"My, what gay littlo fellows they
are!" exclaimed Helen.
"Yes, they are very fanciful in coloring," answered Aunt Amelia. "I once
watched one of these cunning sailors
make his craft and launch it, and it
was an interesting sight.
"Sitting along the bank of a stream
one day, 1 noticed a spider looking for
something In the grass; seizing a leaf, he
lifted it and placed lt on another, binding them together with silken cords;
then he quickly ran after another leaf
and    repeated    the    process    until    he

The llttle ones were being taught to
rend by the word method and had
learned to recognize the word "cat"
wherever it appeared. The next lesson
was the expression "a cat," and the
teacher, not knowing but that Junior
had learned some of the letters at home,
pointed to the word "a" nnd asked him
what it was. After studying it' closely
for n moment or two, with many a
twist . and wriggle, he suddenly hn-

seemed satisfied with the size of his
craft, when he spun his cords around
the whole mass. The vessel was by
this time, perhaps, an Inch and a half
thick   and   four   Inches  across.
"Now- he seized the little boat In his
strong mandibles, or jaws, and drew it
toward the water; resting a moment between pulls, he llnajly reached the edge
of the stream, and the fairy craft glided
into the water; the gay sailor then
sprang upon it and floated away down
the stream."
"How cunning he must have looked

times with a blade of grass, and how
quickly he would dart under the water,
appearing again when the supposed
danger was over. Then soon I saw an
unwary fly alight near blm. and In a
twinkling he dashed out into the water
and seized his victim, swimming back
to bis raft to enjoy the feast at liis
leisure. After a while he darted (iff
again after something that rippled the
water, but alas! he did not comu back
this time to his craft.
