Olive's Courtship

The sound of thnt low, wailing
moan pierced tbe thicket of roses
and  reached the girl's ears.
"Whnt noise wus thnt, Towscr?"
she cried, addressing the huge dog
that  bounded  by  her side.
Evidently tho mast ill hnd caught
the sound, too, and in an instant he
had cleared the dense mass of creeping vines to the other side.
Then a series of loud barks brought
his young mistress to the place at
"What have you found Towscr?"
she exclaimed, parting the tall bushes with a very slim white hand;
"some poor maimed bird or—"
Then her eyes fell upon the tall
figure lying under the trees, with his
white, dew-wet face upturned to the
"Oh, what is the matter, sir? Are
you hurt?" cried the young girl, dis-
tressedly.  "Are you ill?"
His lips moved, but the only word
he could utter was "Help! Help!" as
he looked up into the pitying face of
the tall, slim, dark-eyed young girl
in the blue print dress; then the blue
eyes closed, and he fell back unconscious  among the thorns.
"Come, Towser, we must go for
help," cried the girl, springing to
her feet, and in a flash she was crossing the daisy-studded fields to an
old farm-house whose red chimney
could be outlined over the trees some
distance oft; but ns she came in sight
of the clover-fields, she saw her father and one of the farm-hands busy
with  the  mowers  there.
"Hey-day! what's the matter with
my little girl now?" exclaimed Farmer Gray as she reached his side,
flushed, panting, and almost speechless. "What's the dilemma, now,
Quite as soon as she could recover
her breath she told them the startling story of the handsome young
stranger lying under the tree, dying
in the rice swamp.
"Lend a hand, my boy," cried the
farmer, turning to his help; "we will
to rido
lo' spare' one or the    haii—'
twenty    miles   ■over to   tho
using one of the horses."
lt was two hours or more ere the
stranger recovered consciousness, and
in the meantime Farmer'Gray had
done everything possible for him,
and that accomplished, ho considered
it his duty to look through tho
pockets of the young man to learn
who ho was.
There were no papers whatever
about him, only a roll of bills in his
breast-pocket, together with a card,
on which was engraved tho name
Roger Glendenning; it bore no address.
As Oscar Glendenning opened his
eyes for _n instant, they traveled
around the neat, strange little room
in great bewilderment, resting at
last on the two men standing by the
open window, engaged just thon in
spelling out the name on the bit of
pasteboard, and attempting to pronounce it.
Glancing up, the farmer caught his
gaze resting upon hiin. He crossed
over to the couch at once.
"Waal, Mister Roger Glan-dang-
ing," he bogan, cheerily, "you were
pretty badly used-up, warn't you.
But we've got you fixed up fust-rate,
you see. That's your name on that
card, isn't it?"
For an instant only Oscar hesitated. It was a wretched mistake, having his brother Roger's card in his
pocket. More than twenty times he
had mude up his,mind to tear it up
nnd throw it away, but each time,
ere he could put this resolve into
execution, something, had always
transpired to cnuse him to put it on*
to a more propitious time. As long
as they had seen tbat name on the
card, be might ns well be known by
it. Ay, it was best that they should
know him by the name of Roger, for
were they not searching for Oscar
Glendenning? This might serve to
throw them oft the track.
Thinking he did not quite understand, the farmer repeated his question, and Oscar Glendenning bowed
assent;  and on this one point hangs
fetch the poor chap up to the house;   all the pitiful sequel which we must
mcbbe thar's life in him yit. You go
ahead to the farm-house, darter, an'
tell mother to fix up some place fer
the stranger."
The girl hurried on to do his bidding, nnd the farmer and his help
nade haste down to the rice swamp
record  in this narrative.
"Hev you friends you'd like to hev
word sent to by telegraph?" was the
next inquiry; but to this Glendenning
shook his head.
"I haven't a relative in the whole
wide world, save a brother, and he is
o the spot which Miss Neva had in- I traveling somewhere in Europe,"  he
"He's a reg'lar city chap," muttered John Anderson, the "help," a little huskily.
"Now doan't you stand there
a-mumblin'," cried the old farmer,
impatiently, "but jest lend a hand
here; we must fetcr him to the houso
without losin' a minlt, I'm almost
afeared that the chap's done for
The man complied silently, and
slowly they bore the handsome
stranger to the old farm-house; and
Farmer Gray lived to curse that day,
and to ruo it even to the hour in
which he lay dying.
Tho farmer's wife had no sooner
got the spare-room ready than the
two men appeared with their burden, which they had placed on a
rudely constructed litter, and, still
unconscious, they laid him on tho
i.now-white bed.
"Isn't    he    handsome!" exclaimed
articulated, faintly.    "Ah!  how   my
|shoulder nnd ankle pain!"
"Lay perfectly    quiet,   an'    you'll
I soon be on the mend, young man,"
declared the farmer; "you'll be well
attended to by my Neva and^ her
mother, so make the best of it."
| "Was it your daughter, the dark-
eyed young girl, who saved me from
the terrible end fate seemed to have
in store for me?" he asked, quickly.
| "Yes; my Neva found you jest in
the nick o' time, I reckon," he answered; "you had putty nigh given
up the ghost."
I    "Will you thank your young, daugh-
I ter for me?" asked Glendenning., earnestly. "Say to her, too, that I sha^l
be delighted to buy her a handsome
gift (us a souvenir for her kindly o#t
of mercy) ln the first village I come
to when I leave here, and send it jto
I her." m
"You needn't to mind about thar.
l-imi.i Mrs Gray. "What's the matter stranger," returned the old farnifii',
do you say, Duncan?" .warmly; "anybody would a-done «he
ated arm and a sprained   same thing for you cf they had hap-
'A disloci
ankle," he rejoined, briefly adding,
"you an' Neva can leave tho room,
an' I'll soon hev him in as good
thape as any doctor could. I didn't
study to be a doctor iu my curly
days fer nothin', an' it's come in
putty good, livin' nigh onto twenty
mile from the village."
Mrs. Gray nnd Neva walked slowly
from the room, but the daughter
took a backward glance, as sho
reached the threshold, at tho hand-
Bome, death-white face lying back
against the pillow.
"If it's as bad with the stranger
as your father fears, it'll bo many a
day, I reckon, before be will be able
to leave here," Mrs. Gray remarked,
thoughtfully, moro to herself than
her daughter.
Neva looked thoughtfully out ot the
window and over tho hills, but. it
was some moments ere she .jiuule answer:
"I wonder if he's married—or—or—
single,  mother?"
"What in the world makes you
wonder that?" asked the farmer's
.wife, sharply. rl'he question did not
please her.
"1 was thinking that some one
was waiting and watching in vain,
jicrlinps, for his coming, and—and—I
felt sorry if—if—his wife, if he has
one, wns waiting for him, and was
weeping becnuse he docs not come, ns
the long hours ding themselves by."
"We will let his friends know of
his whereabouts just ns soon ns we
can lenrn their address," declared
«!,. ji-uUicr-    "evi—i. though   WC   hfl.ve
from   0,ewy morning,   .untn   mc s?.n I
went   down-and the    dusk  of night |
crept  up  arid hid    the  waving fields
from his sight.
Rut if it had not been for the
farmer's pretty daughter Neva,. ho
would have died of ennui.
He could not help but notice how
graceful and supple the slender figure
was, nnd how soft and beautiful were
the great, bright hazel eyes' whose
long dark lnsiies swept tho rosiest of
cheeks. Sho was clever, too, in u
way. She could play the hftrp liko
nn nngel, nnd her voice wns us sweet
as the meadow-lurk's when she Bung
for him. She did not know many
songs, only such as had been sung
from time immemorial almost, such
as "Tho Old Folks at Home,"
"Kathleen Mnyournten," "Would I
Could be With Thee Alway," and
"Home, Sweet Home," until Glendenning, man of the world though be
was, almost felt the tears rush to
his eyes over the e—quisite puthos of
that sweet young voice.
"She is indeed a child of nature,"
he told himself; and he fell to wondering what sort of a man it would
be who would awaken that girlish
henrt to love's sweet dreams. Probably some awkward countryman. She
would wed him and settle down, as
her people had dono before her, to
quiet country life. She would put
away her harp, and the songs she
sung now would be forgotten all too
soon. Her youth and her beauty
would soon fade, lines would (uriow
that whito brow and tender mouth,
the wild-rose bloom would die from
the dimpled cheeks, and tho light from
those beautiful dark eyes. Glendenning often said to himself that he
was thankful he would not know of
it, would not be there to seo the
change, and he felt sorry that she
could not marry some nice young
man who could appreciate hor grent
beauty, and sun himself in the
charms of her childish simplicity.
It delighted her beyond measure
when he would join, in his rich barytone voice, in the chorus as she
Neva would have lik«d nothing better than to sit by the open window
and sing and play for him the livelong, duy, had not her mother constantly reminded her that there was
something more to be done than
amuse the sick gentleman. There
were the pease to shell for the farm
hand's dinner, the cherries to stone
for the pies, and the cake to look
after, to say nothing of the churning and a thousand and one things
to look after or for busy hands to
"Do you like this life?" Glendenning asked of her one day, looking
at her curiously.
She was sitting on the doorstep
outside, her head just a little above
the level of his window, her white,
rounded arm resting on the sill. She
shook her dark, curly heud, and looked in at him wistfully.
"You read no books, no magazines
or papers; you know of no other,"
he said, slowly.
"I have read a few books," she answered, quickly, "and they all were
about the great cities nnd the lovely
young girls and fine gentlemen who
iive in them, and the balls, and the
fine carriages they ride in. Ah! I
should like to live a life like that; I
long for it sometimes. I have never

about makin' any present. Marthy,,
my wife, and I f.re only too glad to-
do a good turn for a fellow-crcctur." Lj
When the old farmer related tliis^ 1
conversation to his wife and daught^
cr, out in the dairy an hour later.,
there was only one sentence that
caught the girl's ear and held hor
attention, and that was that the
handsome, fair-haired stranger had
no relatives; therefore he must be unmarried.
From that hour a ray of sunshine
seemed to suddenly brighten the girl's
hitherto dull, gray, monotonous life,
ahe was young, only nineteen, and
youth has its romantic day-dreams.
Ah, well, perhaps it is best so i'or
there comes a timo into every life
when even thoso rosy day-dreams lose
their fragrance and fade before the
chill breath of reality.
To Oscar Glendenning, who had
lived such a gay life in the great
metropolis, this cool, quiet farmhouse, with its homely, quaint peoplo
(ail save the daughter), seemed to
him as though he hud suddenly drifted Into some new, strange world,
among a race of beings ho could
scarcely comprehend.
It wus terribly Irksome for a man
as impatient as himself to lie still In
that little unpapered room, even
though it was cool and quiet, and
the view from tho two open windows
afforded him an excellent opportunity
to watch the hay-makers at work,
nnd   the   auict charm   of    farm-life,

five and six concerned the pious and
foolish deeds of Roger, the second Norman Earl of Warwick, and Piers Gave-
ston, the friend of Edward II. The seventh scene introduces the greatest of'
the Warwicks, the Kingmaker. In the
famous Wars of the Roses this earl
dominated the situation, making first
Lancaster King and then York, as best
suited his pleasure. He was depicted
as a man of remarkable craft, but of
great courage and perseverance.

eighth episode, for he granted a charter to the town and school at Warwick. The latter had been established
at an earlier period, but Henry VIII.
freed lt from clerical control and ordered that thereafter lt should provide
education free of charge to the Warwick children. Lady Jane Grey, the
victim of the plottlngs of John Dudley, Earl of Warwick and Duke of
Northumberland, was the heroine of
the ninth episode, and this we can
Imagine to have been one of the most
moving spectacles in the pageant. It
was followed by the Elizabethan episode, In which Robert of Leicester figured as the Queen's favorite. Robert
was a Dudley, a younger brother of
Lady Grey's husband, and a s-m of
John Dudley, Earl of Warwick and
Duke of Northumberland. Elizabeth,
as a sign of her favor to Leicester,
created his brother, Ambrose, Earl of
Warwick. After his death most of the
property reverted to the Crown, and
rested there until bestowed again by
James I.

The final spectacle portrayed the Ill-

gigantic bonfire made in the court and
120 gallons of punch were consumed
by hosts and guests. A combination
of Intoxicated r»"olers and unheeded
fire resulted in the burning down of
most of tlie town and the destruction
of priceless specimens of architecture.

'Washington Correspondent Gives Some
Luminous Figures Showing What
Port Arthur Is Doing to Make Pub-
lio Ownership a Success—Mayor Expects to See Day When Citizens Will
Get Profits In Individual Cheques.
With what emotions would a property holder receive an official statement from the assessor s office that he
would not be required to pay taxes
thereafter? asks a orrespondent of
The Washington Star writing from
Port Arthur, Canada. And the same
citizen would probably not survive the
shock of later being requested to oall
at the dlstrlet building to receive a
cheque as his share of the profits of
the Municipal Government. This state
of affairs ls about to be realized in
Port Arthur.
Every stranger who drops Into this
hospitable little city at the head of
Lake Superior, on the Canadian side,
Is forced to become familiar with tho
town's method and manner of doing
business before he can make any sort
of headway at all in any other direction. He may not be Interested, but
that matters not a whit. He must listen! Every citizen of the town is loaded to the guards with Information about
municipal ownership and carries around
with him tho last quarterly statement
of the railway and light commission.
He knows to a cent just how much profit there was ln the operation of the
waterworks and can tell you to a mill
the profits of the last quarter from the
telephone system. Incidentally he will
explain between grins and chortles that
the rival town of Fort William, six miles
away. Is helping to pay the taxes due
on Port Arthur's real estate, because
the street railroad whicll connects the
two towns of approximately the same
population ls owned by the municipality
of Port Arthur. Therefore, when a Fort
William resident pays five cents to the
street car conductor he contributes a
mite to every Individual taxpayer in the
rival town. That fact seems to tickle
the Port Arthurlans to death. If you
are with a Port Arthur resident for
half an hour and he doesn't mention the
above conditions thirteen times lt Is
considered remarkable by the natives.
Cheap 'Phones.
Although the street railroad doesn't
give the citizens any reduction ln car
tickets which other cities do not enjoy, the telephone service is much
cheaper. The enthusiastic advocate of
municipal ownership ln this town—
and every citizen is ln this class—will
not forget to explain that the Bell
Co. used to charge $36 a year for a
business telephone which Is now supplied for $24, and that a residence telephone now costs only $12 a year. Ha
knows, too, that Port Arthur is the only
town on the American continent which
owns and operates all of Its utilities,
and ls fery fond of explaining how all
this came about.
The most conspicuous citizen of this
town is a member of the railway and
light commission. The membership of
tho commission Is restricted to three,
and one member Is elected each year.
It is by far a greater honor to be a
member of the commission than lt ls
to bo a mayor or alderman. As member of the board the citizen who has
been so honored by the municipality
must serve without pay.
Nobody rides on passes ln this town,

wny municipal Ownership ls possible";
but there are even better reasons than
that, for the falls of the Current River
are almost In the city Itself, and all
the power necessary for electrical
operation of any kind, Including manufacturing, is supplied by this kindly
and convenient stream. The city has
appropriated everything and the
manufacturer must do business with It,
but the terms are easy and no one
seems to have a kick.
Serve Without Pay.
The controlling officials, serving without pay, saves all of the salaries which
go to eat up the profits of public utilities elsewhere, and because of these
and other reasons one would hardly be
Justified ln pointing to this town of
10,000 people as proof positive that
municipal ownership Is Justifiable ln all
' Amerloan cities.
| One-half of the taxes of Port Arthur
are   paid   from   the   revenues   derived
! from its waterworks lighting plant,
street railway and telephone. The total
investment by the municipality was
$150,000, and last year the net income
was $36,000. Of course lt would be impossible to continue these proportional
figures If the city should grow to a
larger population, and lt would be likewise Impossible ln a city where millions were involved to have tha officials
devote their entire time to enterprises
without compensation. Just now the
members of the railway and light commission meet only after business hours
and perhaps not oftener than twice a
Port Arthur and Fort William are
the lake shipping points for the western Canada wheat belt. Each has a
magnificent harbor and gigantic elevators. Port Arthur and the Canadian
Pacific Railway have been for years
and are now at war with each other.
If there had never been a quarrel between the two there would never have
been a story to tell about municipal
ownership under a Port Arthur   date
j line.
Both at Fault.
Disinterested  persons  say that both
the  town and  the road were at fault
1 and that a hot-headed and chesty person of importance to each made their
dV&fuvmreg craw and finally.become Ir-
reooncllable.     Port   Arthur*  conotuaea
j that  the railway  was  trying to dodge
f the payment of taxes on property the
title to which was under dispute, and
a very self-assertive mayor caused a
passenger train to be attached and held
—like the elephant of the bankrupt circus—until payment was enforced. This
little courtesy naturally made the Canadian Pacific Railroad officials feel kindly toward Port Arthur.
Sir William Van Home, president of
the Canadian Pacific, Is pretty qulok on
the trigger anyhow, and his wrath on
this particular occasion was something
wonderful to see. After the power of
amteoh bad returned Sir William Is reported to have waved his carefully
maintained Smlt-fleld over his head
and declared that ho would "make tihe
grass grow In the streets of Port Arthur." The development of the rival
town of Fort William began with a
rush, and for a while It looked very
much as lf Sir William would make his
threat good.
But the good folks of Port Arthur are
not of the Mlcawber family. They began to sit up and take notice. They had
a harbor, an Ideal location for a oity
and a splendid waterfall Just outside
the city limits. If the railroad would
not bring Its tracks to Port Arthur they
| were determined to make their town
get£.table,by m_fans of,^n electric rail-
fray, aim so me municipal ownersmp
proposition had its Inception. From the
very beginning the system was enough
of a success to demonstrate that ultimately lt would be a pronounced success, and the story which tells the tale
most eloquently Is the statement of Income and expenditures Issued by the
corporation of the Town of Port Arthur.
It shows that from the street railroads
the gross income was last year $42,000,
the cost of administration $2,800 and the
profit $10,180; from the electrio lighting plant the same relative figures were
$36,228, $2,100 and $11,840, and from tho
telephone system $8,571, $1,100 and
The figures given under ""ist of administration" include the salary for
superintendence and the clerical stall
required for the operation of these Industries. The street railroad Is carrying charges on some $156,000 worth of
bonds. Of theso $12,000 wore devoted
to Improvement of the Current River,
The lighting and telephone systems are
bonded proportionately. The Mayor of
Port Arthur rcvelwed the figures for
me and remarked.
"I expect to see the day when the
property-owner of this town will walk
up to the auditor's office and receive
a cheque as his proportional share of
the profits from the operation of our
public utilities."

A   Murderer   Appears  to   a   Man  Who
Smote Him After Death.
Writing ln the Illustrated weekly
"Canada," "A Habitant" aays: The Incident that I am now going to relate
happened In the same parish wherein
ls situated the Sault au Recollet. Soon
after the arrival of the English ln Can ■
ada, the custom of gibbeting criminals
by the roadside came In. There was a
very famous one at Pointe Levis, and
a 'habitant named Vallquet was driving
past on tlie day appointed for the
christening of a child of his; there was
to be a great supper and rejoicing at
his house that night to celebrate the
occasion, and Vallquet, feeling recklessly happy, drove close to the gibbet
where hung the body ot a man who
had beer, guilty of a very brutal murder, and caught it a smart crack with
his whip saying, "I invite you to supper at my house to-night." A friend
of Vallquet's who was driving with
him, shuddered, saying: "The man has
been a criminal, but he has paid his
penalty before men, and if he repented
at the last he may be a saint In heav—l
to-day." But the happy father was
light at heart, and thought only of the
joy-making of the christening feast.
Evening came, and with it the guests,
and they sat down to table, excepting
the new mother, who was unable to
rise from her bed. Hardly had supper
commenced, when there were three
knocks at the door, and, without waiting tor lt to be opened, ln walked the
gibbeted murderer, carrying his iron
cage under his aim; he put the latter
behind the dcor and stood facing the
Kept His Appointment.
It Is needless to describe the terror of
the assembly, or how Vallquet's knees
trembled as he gathered bis wits and
courage together. "What do you want?"
asked he. "If you want suffrages, I will
say a Libra for your soul and some
other prayers." The figure replied, "Tou
invited me to supper, and I have come."
Vallquet feared greatly for ihis wife's
health, so he begged the apparition to
depart, promising his prayers. The
ghost, who at flrst insisted on waiting
for the dance and taking part therein,
finally promised to go on condition that
Vallquet would come the following
night to his gibbet at the stroke of midnight and dance. This being agreed, the
ghost picked up his cage and walked
out. Everyone, of course, tried to persuade their host to break his promise,
but he would not hear of such a thing.
Woman's wit provided the "best expedient. A baptised baby was supposed,
and Is still supposed by some people, to
be an angel from heaven, and the anxious mother suggested that 'hen' husband
should take the ohlld in his arms when
he went to redeem his word. Accordingly Vallquet went the following night
at the stroke of twelve to the gibbet,
carrying his child ln his arms. "What!"
said the murderer, "you come thus
provided? I came last night alone,
but you only como with an angol to
guard you. Put down the child, for I
have a splendid dance to propose, and
the time ls measured by the strokes of
a whip." "No," said Vallquet. "I have
kept my promise to meet you here, and
I will »t'.y the prayers I offered to say,
but I will not put my child eut of my
arms," "Yoi: are at any rate brave, I
even though you are thoughliss," answered tho murderer. ''Henceforth you
will respect the dead, and remember
the dead, like the living, can keep appointments."

Plaid skirts aro worn with jackets of

For decorative furnishings quite a

this purpose.
Silk waists aro in somewhat stronger

upon the lingerie liues.
Ribbons promise well for spring in

for millinery purposes, but also for belts
Judging from tho present conditions,
lingerie waists will sell better this

It has been said, anil very unjustly
too, that our penitentiaries are universities of crime, whose pupils are tin
enemies of society, and that the criminal class is everywhere made up o:
men who have received their educatiot.

they are doing much to unmake them.

A large proportion of the prisoners
em.nually discharged from our penitentiaries are far better equipped for gaining an honest living under fair treatment than when they were received
I believe as a rule their physical, theii

subsequent treatment. Habits of Industry are formed through their being
employed at Industrial pursuits, discipline Is taught which gives men the
stronger sense of self-control and self-
government. There Is no cruelty In a
strong or well-organized discipline; In
fact, cruelty ls more often practiced
where discipline is Ux, and an unknown
quality. But even should these conditions exist in some of the Canadian
prisons the man generally goes out better than when received.
People to-day are too far away from

undertake their betterment, or the evolution of soOlal conditions.

, The Criminal.
The man we call a criminal cannot
tie defined at one glance. He defies any
single angle vision. He cannot be estimated from one viewpoint far or
mear. The police see him as a disturber of the peace, and, one whom
they may legitimately exploit. The
Judge sees him as the violator of law
and order, and a subject for all the
.terrors which the law calls for. The
warden of a penal Institution sees him
under conviction of a crime, to him tbe
'fact of his detention and presence in a
;penitentiary Is grim punishment ln lt-
iself, and he proceeds to carry out the
instructions of "rule and regulation."
Society sees him as a menace to Its
quiet and eood order, and whether the
violator of law is in cell or in dungeon,
Is satisfied to know Itself so well rid of
this menace. The criminal will never
cease to be a profound study until we
have clearly defined the causes which
have deflected him from the straight
[ine of accepted conduct to one of such
acute moral obliquity. Within our
penitentiaries to-day we bave about
1,300 souls. Until the causes which have
produced such antl-soclal results ln
those units of society are discovered,
the criminal man will be the study of
the philanthropist and tho political
•conomlsl from whatever viewpoint he
may be prosecuted. To seek for the
fatal onuses which have produced criminals In the heart, and which are still
producing them, is one of the quests of
the Holy Grail of our century. Thero
ore hopeful Indications that the quest
is neither vain nor delusive.
Treatment of the Inebriate.
One thing ls certain; we have greatly advanced our methods of dealing
with tho criminal of late years. We
cannot corral all men Into classes, or
put tho brand of disfavor on the
masses. The time la not long since the
lnebrlato was the declared incarnation
of all perversity and the embodiment
•of an evil genius. Since it was written
that lie had no inheritance in Uie Kingdom of God, It has been a contention
among thousands whether he should
have allotted to blm any Inheritance
ln the kingdom ot mon. We have
learned a more righteous way in dealing with the inebriate. He has been
taken ln hand by those more kindly
'iianils who search for causes as well as
the effects, and the inebriate treatment
will undergo a radical change during
the next decade of criminal treatment
and research. One thing that ls patent to almost everybody to-day Is embodied ln tho fact that Inebriety Is not,
ns a rule, a vicious and criminal por-
x-ersily In men. Perhaps somo predisposing cause outside of a depraved
bcart, where we have so continuously
located it, may be held to answer for
the masterful drink Impulse.
Need of the Drunkard.
The discovery that Inebriety may be
the symptom of a pathological condl-
<ion of the brain, and ot the nerve cen
tres, and, that the drink lmpu'.se is but
physical demand for relief — Uhe wild
and the maniac cry of the inner man—
throws a more lurid light over the way
which the unfortunate drunkard has
stumbled ln his fate for a thousand
years. The man ln the midst of tie
drink storm is not found a moral delinquent only — he is a physical and
mental delinquent. He Is an anti-
maniac. It is not a Jail that is demanded for him, it Is the retreat of an
asylum. The man Is not only sick, but
Impotent. It ts not a prison that ia
needed, but a catliollcon v, Ithln the
ward of a hospital. When once the ln-

medical practitioner these predisposing
causes ln the disordered nerve centres
will receive an Intelligent analysis and
treatment. Everything that appeals to
the soul and spirit as well as to bho
reparation of tissue has Its place in
tho medical armamentarium. Already
In Canada there ls a move ln the right
direction and the Inebriate ln Montreal and Toronto ls receiving medical
attention as special cases. It ls the
dawn of a better day for this unfortunate man. Theology and pat)hology are

—uue 01 usexuiness in the betterment
of men.
An Accident In a Great Plan.
To bhe broad-minded and thoughtful,
the criminal man appeals, as an accident in a great plan. He is not so much
the harmful and vicious despoiler as
he is himself harmed and despoiled. He
ls out of place in the vast aggression;
and, but for him as an agreeing end
accordant aggression, he Is an energy
misdirected, and because misdirected,
not only a wasted energy, but one of
danger. To remove the menace to society this energy must, be turned into
another channel, a channel of usefulness and activity. The criminal man or
woman is abnormal and out of adjustment, but this does not signify he ls
therefore unadjustable. He must be
brought to the right place and adjusted. The problem ls, liow far can their
readjustment be made without sacrificing the existing relations between
the doers of the law, and the law
breakers? One of the highest English
authorities I have read on this question
states: "It Is on the assumption that
punishment will havo the effect of deterring crime that its Infliction can
alono be justified. It may be well
doubted, whether, In more recent times,
the humane and praiseworthy desire to
restore and reform the fallen criminal
-lay not have produced too great a tendency to forget that the protection of
society should be the first consideration
of the law giver."
Responsib-lity of Society.
The subordination of the unit to the
Imperious demands of the many, ls ln
result generally the cruel use of a force
trusted with the many, not for the suppression of the unit, but for the protection of the unit. Society, to Justify
Its position in the case of the man In
prison, speaks to-day of the "congenital criminal"; of the "born thief"; of
the "hereditary drunkard"; until It Is
almost the popular belief, that all
thieves are born thieves, and all drunkards are born drunkards. What possible Interest can you or I have ln a born
criminal? If such they are, he is an
alien to society and out of harmony
with humanity. If this Is true, he Is
simply a natal defect and there ls no
remedy for such.
Let us get as far away as possible
from the thought that men are born
thieves, or liars, or murderers, and
that some men succeed to the woful
estate of the drunkard which they cannot decline. The criminal Is not born,
he ls something made and the modern
Juggernaut, society, whioh so heartlessly pronounces men degenerates, and
passes them by with a wave of the
hand, Is too responsible for tho existing causes of human deterioration to
open Its mouth ln condemnation.
The Hope of  Reclamation.
In conclusion, lf we are obliged to admit natal defects ln men, so we are
obliged to admit natal calamities. But
natal defects may be destroyed or eradicated, and so indeed may natal excellences, and we admit men may be
born with criminal Instincts, but these
criminal Instincts can be destroyed In
the child. They have no such roots or
fibre that they reach from the cradle to
the grave." Men may be born with
the Instincts of angels, but neither aro
theso angelic Instincts qf such root or
fibre so strong In a man as to defy extinction.
The social conditions which are competent to uproot the vicious Instincts of
a child aro also competent to firmly
root the disposition and the Instincts
which are not in character vicious, but
full of virtue. s
Since theology and pathology have
united ln the discovery of the genesis
of crime, It Is found that there ls nothing ln any man, natal or acquired,
whioh makes him a responsible antisocial unit, or ln which one or the other,
or perhaps both, of these forces, may
not be minimized or wholly destroyed.
Good  In All  Men.
We must accept the criminal as he Is
now revealed to us In the searchlight
whioh science and religion turn upon
him. Ho cannot be dismissed as an anthropological monster, he ls one with
us; he belongs to.ua; he unust be met
and treated as a part of tho social fab- .
rlc of life; and as a social phenomenon. I
Ilo must be helped over tho chasm
which ho ls digging with his own :
hands. The voice of God may fall Into
a faint whisper in the human soul, but
It never dies away into utter silence.
The man whose cell may prove his sep-
ulohre, has his past, his ruined, broken
past, full of wasted opportunities, of
fruitless efforts, and unrequited ambitions. He Is a man to feel all these
things and his soul cries out for the
touch of the true and tha. _ood.     _    |

goes so far in wrongdoing but that he

three inches square and witb a lead
pencil, the point of which has been
dipped in wnter, draw a circle, s
square, a triangle or any other geometrical figure. Put the paper carefully on a pan of water, letting lt float

drop water on the surface of the paper
until the space within the figure Is
filled. The moistened pena'l lines will
keep lt from flowing outside ilis U>:t.. e
Now place the point of a pin over some

pin point must penetrate tbe surface
of the water, but must not touch the
paper. At once the pnper will float
around until the pin points directly to

About Printer's Devils.
The barrister's "devil," with whost
title the Attorney-General of England,
as the guest of the North-eastern Circuit, mad* merry, got lt, presumably
from that other humble functionary,
the "printer's devil." But why was
the printer's errand boy so-called? According to Moxen, writing at the end
of the seventeenth century, because
"these Boys In a Printing House commonly black and Dawb themselves;
whence the Workmen do Jocosely call
them Devils; and sometimes Spirits,
and sometimes Files." It Is related,
however, that Aldo Manuzlo, the great
Venetian printer of the fifteenth century, had a black slave boy, who was
popularly supposed to come from below. Accordingly he published a notice:—"I, Aldo Manuzio, printer of th*
Doge, hav* thi* day mad* public exposure of th* printer's devil. All whe
think hs Is not flesh and blood may
com* and pinch him."
Borne Toilet Necessaries,
If the odor Is not unpleasant to any

They were talking about spelling reform and the Idiosyncrasies of Euglish
spelling In general.
"There's tbat very word 'phonetic,'"
said one of the men. "That's a sample
of English spelling. The reformers call
their system the 'phonetic system,' and
yet they have to spell 'phonetic' with a
'pho' In order to let people know wbnt
tbey mean. The very word that means
'spelled as pronounced' is as far from
It as possible."
"Now, now!" drawled bis friend.
"You're too bard on the good old English speller. You ought to be proud of
'phouotie.' Why, that word is so trimmed down and sawed off and cut short
tbat I wouldn't know It was Kngiish lt
I met lt nlone ou a blank page. You
ought to thunk the language for tbat

That would be a good old style English
word—phoughnettelq. But It ls coming! Phonetic spelling Is coming! Look
at the word 'phenix.' It is Knelled 'phenix' everywhere now, and I remember
It always used to be 'phoenix.' Tbat 'o'

at the base of his wings aud consist of
two flat excrescences of thin, dry
membrane. It ls the rubbing of these
two membranous plates together which
produces the "song." If your shoulder
blades were so loosely put together
that one conld be slipped under the

One of the  Queerest  Trials  In British
History It Recalled.
The charge of counterfeiting coin
preferred against a gang of men ln
the Midlands recalls one of the strangest trials in the history of Britain's legal system.
A French refugee named Jacques du
Moulin was accused of uttering counterfeit coin under very curious circumstances. His habits was to buy of tho
customs authorities goods which had
been smuggled, then resell at a handsome profit. After the deal had been
effected he would return to his customer, produce bad coins and declare that
the buyer had uttered them.
This happened following a deal with
a merchant of repute, who not only denied the charge, but declared that Du
Moulin was himself a coiner.
The Frenchman brought an action
for defamation, and Uie defendant called many witnesses to prove what had
teen the practice of the suspect
A criminal Indictment was then laid
against Du Moulin, his effects were
searched, and among them were found
many false coins and the whole apparatus for counterfeit coining.
He was found guilty and sentenced
to death.
The date of the execution drew near,
and the man's doom seemed sealed.
Then a, miracle happened.
A man named Williams, a seal-engraver, was killed in the street, and his
death brought his wife to the verge of
the grave. Assured that she could
not recover, she confessed that her husband had been one of as gang of coiners
and that Du Moulin had been their innocent victim.
In Du Moulln's employ was a footman
who belonged to the gang and had been
ln the habit of extracting from the
desk of his master good coins and substituting false.
It was these latter which the Frenchman had charged his customers with
palming off upon him.
Still, there remained the damning
evidence as to the coining apparatus Itself in the possession of the doomed
man. This was explained by the fact
that the footman, having obtain duplicate keys to his master's desk, bad,
when Du Moulin was arrested, feared
that he himself would be Implicated,
and, to fasten the guilt upon his master, placed the entire paraphernalia In
the latter's drawer.

Why There Are So Many Smiths.
At the time of the adoption of surnames every artisan whose work required the striking blows on metal
was known ae a smiter or smith, and
the community therefore bad its blacksmith, whitesmith, goldsmith, silversmith, arrowsmitb and several others
of tbe same character. The number of
Smiths of the present day may therefore be readily accounted for when we
remember that each of tbe different
kinds of smiths was as much entitled
to the use of bis trade name for a cognomen as any other artisan. John the
blacksmith and John the coppersmith
were both known as John the smith, an
appellation which naturally resolved Itself Into the family name of John

Parnell'* Superstition*.
From the Intimate etcdy of the late
Irish leader,   Charles   Stewart  Parnell,
made by Emily Monroe Dickinson in "A
Patriot's Mistake," it appears that. Ilk*
many of his countrymen, Parnell was
rather superstitious.   At the timo following his marriage, subsequent to the j
famous divorce suit in which he was
involved, he joined his sister at Cabin-
teely,   where   he   was   to   speak  at     a
meeting.   Upon his arrival the crowd,
ln their eagerness to shake hands witb
the agitator, broke the windows of the ;
carriage and thrust their hands through
th* broken glass, a circumstance that
afforded him strongly as a sign of evil
Import.   On another occasion, when h<
was expected aa a guest by the author,
her housemaid  thought she had  seen
him on the stair at a moment when, as ,
lt afterwards proved, he  had not yel
reached  flic  town.     Upon his arrival
when  told  that  the servant had seen
him on the staircase early that morn- j
Ing, Parnell refused to stay ln the house,
and went with his baggage to his othei
Methods to Prevent Loss of Milk From
the Pests.
The loss of milk in fly time ls well
''known. Loss of blood Is one cause,
lack of comfort a second, and scanty
feed the third.    Anything which will
I obviate any of these causes will meas-
: urably save from milk shrinkage. For
■instance, if the cow eats well she will
, hold out quite well In her mess regardless of the other features, and lf
she does not eat sufficiently she will
; shrink in milk even lf the flies robbed
her of no blood. The first thing to
secure is comfort, the second plenty
of food, and of course keeping the flies
, from depleting the system   of   blood
i made from the food eaten   is   to   be
' considered, says a writer in Orange
Judd r'armer.
The annoyance from flies worries
the cows, and worry causes   shrinkage,
j but the greater damage is done
through their refusing to eat during
the time the files persecute them, Fly
prevention while they eat Is first   ln
■ Importance, according to my experience. For, Instance, if the files annoy
! so they will not eat during the heat
of the day, and they are given a good
pasture early ln the morning, then in
the evening and all the night, they
will still do well at the pail. Or tf fed
silage or soiling in a barn protected
from flies, they will hold out in   their
; milk. 7
I have followed three plans: using
a fly repellent, feeding In the barn, and
using a night pasture. Some years flies
are much more troublesome here than
they are other years. In the worst
years I have used with satisfaction a
fly repellent. I have also used a hqme-
made preparation composed of a mixture of oil of tar and kerosene.
I Of late years the so-called horn fly
has troubled more or less. This fly
has a condemnatory habit worse than
the ordinary flies, ln that it roosts
on the animal all night and is con
stantly at the old stand ready for business, f have fought It by shading the
barn windows with perhaps one exception, and hanging a burlap curtain
over the doorway. As the cows rush
ln nearly all tho fllej are moved with
a feeling of precaution and abandon
the cows at the doorway. Others are
swept off willy-nilly, and the few remaining, if any, are easily   removed
; with a brush or switch. They make
for the light at the partially exposed
window and you proceed to milk free
from fly annoyance. The cows give
down all right, and are turned out
free from flies to eat in the night
If we always keep In mind that It ls
semi-starvation more than loss of
blood we shall more Intelligently prevent shrinkage. If we feed well, or
rather, lf the cows eat sufficient of
good food, they will hold out well ln
fly time. The 'bunching together to
save themselves from flies diminishes
the milk yield. Even lf It totally prevented flies, the milk would seriously
decrease because the time spent In
huddling is a time of enforced cessation from feeding. Then if they are
brought up to milk as it grows cooler
they are taken from pasture too soon
to fill themselves.
From this, lt Is plain to see that
when flies annoy so that cows refuse
to eat during the day, they must be
fed ln the barn or pastured at night
when they do not annoy. Spraying
with a good repellent will protect them
and allow them to eat well, but even
then eating dewy grass is better than
eating nothing but dry grass, and they
will do better lf allowed early and
late grazing. The common practice
here is to turn them In a pasture every
night during fly time, and the use of
fly repellents is not common. Darkening barn windows has this additional advantage: You can milk earlier ln tke evening and get the cows
out is pasture in time to fill themselves
before bedtime.
