Olive's Courtship
Author of "A Cruel Revenge," "A Forbidden Marriage," "A Beautiful Coquette," "The
Heiress of Cameron Hall"
Can you realize what it is to see
a noble ship strike a rock that lies
hidden in a smooth, smiling, treacherous sea, and go down within sight
of land?—to see a thunder-bolt fall
from a cloudless sky and smite a
mighty oak that has withstood the
world's storms for centuries, laying
it low, with its quivering branches
trailing in the dust of the road-side','
Can you realize what it is to have
the brightest and dearest hopes of
a man's life fall in black ruin around
him all in one short instant of time?
If you can, you can picture the terrible blight that had suddenly fallen
like a grim mantle over Roger Glendenning, turning his heart to stone
and the blood in his veins to ice.
The world outside seemr-d to suddenly grow dark, and the cool wind of
heaven that blew in at the open window to scorch his face, ay, burn
down to his very Soul, and consume
him  with one mighty fiery breath.
"Do not look at me like that,
Roger!" cried his brother; "though
the world turn against me, let me
feel that you will stand by me
stanch and true. You will find mercy
in your henrt for me?" and he held
out his white hand, shapely as a
woman's, toward him; but Roger
Glendenning shrunk from him as
though he had been a viper; he could
have forgiven him the terrible crime
of forgery, bard though it might
have been to condone so bitter an
offense, he who had such grand principles, such noble views of right and
wrong; but not while the sun shone
and tho stars gave light, and he
walked the bleak, desolate earth,
could he ever forgive this handsome
younger brother from stealing surreptitiously the one being in this
world whom he loved. He would
have a thousand times rather have
given his brother Oscar every drop of
his heart's blood. In thot one moment he suffered silently the pain of
"Advise me, Roger," cried Oscar
Glendenning, cowering in abject terror before the stern man before him,
the grayish pallor of whose face and
burning eyes frightened him. "Por
tho sake of my beautiful Olive, save
me from Judge Knuelaiid's wrath. It
—it—would break her heart if—if—sh*
Those words acted like magic upon
the dazed senses of Roger Glendenning. His brother had touched the
right chord, the hidden spring in the
other's nature. What would he not
do for Olive's sake? He would give
up his very life if it could buy her
one moment of happiness—keep her
from having one heart pang.
Ho shuddered, drew his breath
hard, and looked at the handsome,
trembling wretch before him, standing there with his soul torn with
distracting anguish. A horrible
thought had come to him, and a
temptation that almost made him
cry aloud in triumph
Why should he aid him? Let him
taks tho full consequences of tho
crime ho had committed. They
would send him to prison for the best
of his life, and that would part him
as ciTcctuolly from beautiful Olive
Knecland as though he lay in his
grave fathoms deep under the green
grass and nodding daisies.
"For Olive's sake, save me! It
would break hsr heart if sho but
knewl" sobbed his brother, in a dry,
hard voico. "It would be a stab in
her breast that would cost her her
sweet young life. She would pine
and die before your eyes, Roger."
For one moment Roger Glendenning
hesitated between right and wrong,
brotherly love and a terrible temptation.
A bird flew by the window, uttering a low, plaintive note; the wind
stirred a bunch of lilac blooms in a
glass on tbe mantel; a snatch of gay
song from somo street urchin floated
up to him.
It was only a moment, but in that
length of tim» Roger Glendenning
seemed to live long, weary, desolate
Would Olive die if anything happened the man she loved? His head
drooped, his strong frame trembled,
his lips quivered, ond he cruelly
clinched his hands together; but he
did not even feel the pain of the
sharp nails in his flesh, his mental
torture  was so great.
Could ho see her die?—starve for the
want of love that was denied her?
Ah, God I he, of all other men in the
world, realized how desolate her life
would bo. Nol nol for Olive's sake
hs must try and save his brother
from the fruits of his desperate act,
even though giving him his freedom
built nn inscparabla wall between
Olive and himself whilo their lives
"The note was for one thousand
delli-i's.  and it falls duo to.day, you
say?" hd" inquired,  nonrsciy.
Oscar bowed his head in assent,
nervously pulling at his moustache,
his fingers twitching terribly.
"I will try and get the money for
you somehow," returned Roger,
huskily. "Vou well know that I have
no such sum, but perhaps I can make
it up b.v borrowing from several
whom I know; but believe this; I
do not shield you from brotherly
love, for I abhor your crime; and
though you were a thousand times
my brother, I would see you punished for your folly and unpardonable
boldness; but for her sake I will save
you at any cost to myself—yes, at—
any—cost to myself," ho repeated,
"I am grateful to you, Roger, from
the bottom of my heart!" cried Oscar, attempting to seize the other's
hand, but Roger waved him back
with bitter sternness.
"Do not come near me! do not
touch me! you would but add insult
to injury.    Who has the note?"
"A money-broker down the
"His name?" said Roger, sternly.
Roger Glendenning started. lie
knew well how enraged Judge Knecland would be upon discovering this
note in the hands of the man who
had been his bitterest enemy for
years, if it were to be presented for
payment, and it might be sent to
him at any moment.
Roger put his hat on quickly and
strode toward the door, holding it
open for his  brother  to pass out.
"I will meet you in the hotel office
on the corner of this street, in an
hour from now, and will have the
money if it be in my power to raise
it,"  he  said.
"You are too good to me," murmured   Oscar
wretched white face in his hands; and
thus he left the office and went slowly
down the broad stair-way and out
into the crowded, sunlit street.
"Thank goodness, I have got over
this bridge in safety," ho muttered,
"or will have got over it by noon;
for Roger will get the money somehow for me, since he has given me
his promise. That little ruse that
entered my brain so cleverly—about
telling him I had proposed to the old
Judge's pretty daughter, and that she
accepted me—is what worked on his
sympathy and did the work for me;
but for that, I feci sure ha would
have refused me, ay, he would not
have raised his hand to keep me from
facing the terrible  consequences."
He walked slowly to the placo indicated by his brother, and gave himself up to the torture of waiting.
Never did an hour drag by more
slowly. The hands of the great
clock on the wall seemed to creep
along. Five, ten minutes passed; the
appointed time had come and gone,
and Roger had not kept his promise
What was detaining him? Roger wus
always so punctual; this was the
most prominent of his many virtues.
Perhaps it was difficult for him to
raise the amount. Twenty minuti's.
half an hour, and still another half
was measured from tho world's time
by the sun that crept higher and
higher in the heavens. The terrible
strain and anxiety on Oscar's mind
became intolerable. He felt that he
was growing mad; the blood was
leaping like fire through his viens;
and he had pared tho floor up and
down so long and so excitedly, he
felt that tha attention of every one
in the office was being called to hiin,
and that hs was the cynosure of ull
Suddenly the thought came to him
that Roger waa playing him false.
What had happened? Why did he not
come-/ If ho was finding lt extremely difficult to raise tho amount, he
might have sent him word, knowing
how anxious hs would be. The conviction that all was not right grew
upon him as tho moments dragged
thoir slow lengths by without bringing bis brother.
"It is my own fault if I allow myself to   be caught   liko a hare  in

He arrived at the Grand Central a
moment before one of the trains
"A ticket to the very end of the
route!" he cried, hoarsely, thrusting
two twenty-dollar notes in at the
ticket-seller's window. He grasped
his ticket and change, and had barely time to spring aboard ere the express steamed out of the depot.
He glanced at his ticket as he sunk
down into the nearest seat, and saw
that it read Hempden,  Louisiana.
"As well there as anywhere else, I
suppose," he muttered, thrusting the
bit of pasteboard into the band
around his hat. "I wish I were at
the other end of the world just now.
I shall feel more at ease with every
mile I place between New York anil
myself. It was a dastardly trick for
Roger to play upon me, though," he
ruminated, frowning deeply, "and I
am not likely to forget it against
him in a hurry. He might have refused to aid me up and down; then
I would have known what to expect;
it's the knowledge of his treachery
that leaves the sting. We may meet
again, brother Roger, and it may be
my turn to pay you back in your
own coin for to-day's work, that
might havo wrecked my life."

A Remarkable Instance ot llie Influence of Heredity.
The setter ate the mutton chop greedily, but he would have none of the partridge bones.
"A good game dog," said his master,
"can't eat game. Its taste is repugnant to him. This is a remarkable Instance of the Influence of heredity.
"Game dogs .have been trained for
many generations not to eat the game
—tbe birds and rabbits and what not—
which they bring bnck to tbelr masters
in their mouths. They have been trained to consider that the eating of such
game would be a disgrace and an unpardonable sin, the same as bank
clerks have been trained to consider
that the pocketing of a few dollars
from the millions they annually handle would be a disgrace aud a sin.
"And the result in the game dogs'
case has been that this moral abhorrence of game, suggested to them by
their masters, has been transmitted ln
, _.,,„„ ,■■ „„■, ,„„,- Its passage down from one generation
brokenly, hiding his | to another, Into an actual physical abhorrence. In the matter of game,
thanks to heredity, game dogs now aro
never tempted. They can't sin.
"It would be a good thing for policy
holders if, in the same way, man's
moral disinclination to steal bad been
changed by heredity to an actual physical aversion of other people's money."
A Woman'a Strange FacaHy ot Reading Cloned Booka.
A curious case of clairvoyance ls related by J. F. Hough in the Occult Review. It is that of his sister, who accidentally discovered her powers of second sight and for whom remarkable
psychic gifts are claimed when under
the mesmeric Influence of her brother.
"If when she is blindfolded," he says,
"I put a book upon her lap and, placing
my bands ou her shoulder, suggest sl-
I leutly that she should read it, she will
i read it as easily as an ordinary person
! could read with his normal sight.   In
| this state her elocutiou is better than
It ls ln ber normal state   There Is no
question of telepathy in this case, because neither I nor uny one else ln the
room knows what she is going to read.
It is the same if I give her u new book
that nobody in the house has read.
"She actually sees the print. It appears to her in letters some two or
three Inches long. This experiment has
been tried successfully with wads of
cotton wool in tbe subject's eyes under
the bandage, witb opaque paper pasted
over the eyes under the bandage and
with a penny held in each eye by the
"It was quite by accident that twelve
mouths ago I found I was possessed of
powers not given to au ordinary person," she laughingly said to the Liverpool correspondent of the Dully Mail.
"In the course of a social party we
were having a game of thought reading. My brother, who alone bus mesmeric influence over me, was close to
me, and suddenly while blindfolded I
commenced to read from the book on
my lap."
Our Liverpool correspondent placed
Miss Hough through several tests during the interview. When she was tightly blindfolded be took u diary from his
pocket aud, opening it, placed It upon
her knee. Resting the tips of his lingers on her shoulder, her brother quietly asked her to read from the diary.
Rapidly and without tbe slightest hesitation she read a whole page of printed technical matter not to be fouud in
or ordinary diary.
Writing she also read ln the same
manner, but she stumbled over shorthand characters in the diary.—London
Ancient Trick*.
The arts of Juggling were, as hns
j been proved by learned writers, of
high antiquity. The Hirplnl, who lived
near Rome, Jumped through burning
coals; women in early times were accustomed to walk over burning coals in
Cappadocia, and the exhibition of balls
and cups is often mentioned ln the
works of the ancients. It was as far back
as the third century that one Fermus, or
Flrmius, who endeavored to make himself emperor in Egypt, suffered a smith
to forge Iron ou an anvil placed on his
breast, and rope dancers with balancing poles are mentioned by Petronius
and others, while the various feats of
horsemanship exhibited in our circuses
passed, in tbe thirteenth century, from
Egypt to the Byzantine court and
thence over all Europe.
Pruning For Bush Fruit.
An Important step ln pruning raspberries and blackberries consists in
cutting out all the wood which is older
than the present season's growth.
This pruning may be done immediately after the seasou's crop has been
harvested. If done at this period it is
easy to distinguish the fruiting wood
from that which has grown during the
season, and by taking out all the useless wood at this time the whole
energy of the root is reserved for the
new growth which is to supply the
crop next season. If the work ls done
In the spring the lateral branches borne
by the caneE which developed from
the roots of the mother plant should
at the same time be shortened'to about
eight to twelve Inches In length. From
each bud of these short branches annual growth will be made which will
terminate in a fruit cluster.
A Prond Man.
"Did you see that proud man going
out Just now?" asked the cashier.
"Proud as Lucifer. Enow what he
did? Found that I bad made a mistake In his favor aud banded me back
the change. Now, I wonder why lt Is
tbat people are so proud wben they
have discovered that tbey are honest
I could rake ln a lot of extra coin if I
availed myself of the mistakes that
are made here every hour of the day,
but I don't on general principles, because I am naturally honest It's nothing to be proud of."
Where Taxes Are Unknown.
Orsa, ln Sweden, has ln the course of
• generation sold $5,750,000 worth of
trees and by means of Judicious replanting bas provided for a similar Income every thirty or forty years. In
consequence of the development of this
commercial wealth there are no taxes.
a I Railways and telephones are free and
trap," he muttered. "But one course
is left ma, and that is to fly from
New York within the hour. Every
instant is precious. Fool, idiot that
I have been to have loitered here!"
Hailing a cab from the window, he
hurried out of the hotel and sprung
into it.
"To the Grand Central Depot!" he
said, hoarsely. "Make it as quick as
you can,  cabby."
The man touched his hat and then
whipped up his horses.
Looking backward through the carriage window, Oscar Glendenning saw
two officers that had come hurriedly
down the street disappear within the
door-way of the hotel which he had
just left, reappearing the next instant looking eagerly up and down
the street.
"I was just in time," muttered
Glendenning, hoarsely. "Drive on

Children played marbles on ths

How   the   Professor   Saved   Himself
From Total Collapan.
Rather than disappoint the class tbe
professor of moral philosophy, who was
suffering from a nervous headache,
had read the lecture prepared for the
occasion and was waiting to answer
any questions tbat might be asked by
the students.
"I beg your pardon, professor," said
ono of the young men, "but there is
one point that ls uot quite clear in my
mind. Suppose that u hypothesis—or
perhaps it wonld be more nearly synchronous to speak of lt as a corollary—
In a case of mental discipline, or, wo
will say, a verbal agreement, as to the

be the correct attitude when two or
more propositions, apparently concrete,
but really differentiated by a vagueness not wholly imaginary, but more
or less complicated with the personal
equation? Does it not so occur to
"I am not sure tbat I follow you,"
answered the professor, wiping his perspiring forehead. "Flease state tbe
proposition again, a little more simply."
"What I wbat to know ls this: When
a process of reasoning assumes ths
form of a dilemma, not necessarily, of
course, but none the less ambiguous
because of tbe apparently contradictory nature of the qualities, or, rather,
the assumption that tbe existence of
the ethical problems under consideration depends upon the state or condition of mind, thus placing the responsibility for the relative divergence where
lt properly belongs and leaving the Intellect free from prejudice or undue
bias?   Is uot this fairly dedueible?"
"I—I presume so," faltered the professor, whose head was In a whirl.
"The fact is, gentlemen, I ronlly should
not have attempted to"—

question that I have uever yet heard

Decline of the Bath.
One strange feature ln the advance
of civilization has been the decline of
the bath. Washing In the golden age
of Greece and Rome was a fine art,
and baths were built with as much

but from an aesthetic point of view
they cannot compare with those or a

According to a well-known railroad
man interested in construction ln the
west, the Indian, though himself not
overly fond of work, evinces the greatest contempt for the indolent white
man. To sit by and watch the latter
.toll is to the red man a source of
never failing pleasure.
A number of the Blackfeet ln Montana were, according to this railroad
man, one day squatting on the ground
watching a group of laborers who
were constructing a grade for a branch
line ln that state. In their laconic
fashion they were commenting upon
the workmen and their work, when
a surveyor riding a bicycle, tbe first
the Indians had ever seen, came along
He had left the train at the last station and was going to the fort, a little
farther on.
The Blackfeet watched the wheelman without a word, until he passed
**3yond a hill. Then they expressed
their sentiments iwth regard to him.
"Ugh!" grunted one, "white man
take easy."
"Yes," assented another, "white
man heap Inzy. Sit down and walk."

he remarked. "I say, Ham, do you suppose cats can swim'.'"

"We'd better tfc a string round her

So they caught the cat, tied on a
string and dropped her from the window. "She can! She can!" they shouted, but just then the dinner bell rang.
"Plum duff!" they cried as with one
voice and tumbled dowu the stairs.
At first the cat rather enjoyed her
adventure and swam along merrily
enough. The sun had begun to shine
by this time, the nir was delightfully
fresh after the stuffy ark, aud the connecting string helped her more than
she realized. But a sudden gust of
wind made tbe ark lurch violently, the
string snapped, and the poor cat found
herself being left slowly astern. She

Clad ln gorgeous robes of heliotrope
silk, lined with broad gold bands, her
bodice and fingers glittering with gems,
Mme. Cavalier, a portly Indian lady,
lectured at Queen's Gate Hall on "Auras, or Man Visible and Invisible."
Mme. Cavalier was assisted by several young ladles, who illustrated her
meaning ln tableaux. Auras, she explained, were etherical linings, which
every human body attracted and they
varied ln composition according to the
good or evil qualities of those they enveloped. She was very exact as to the
size of the auras, which she said extended for two feet above the head, below the feet and on tha right and left
The lady assistants showed the auras
of man at different periods of Ufa, from
the purs white of Innocent Infancy to
the partl-colored linings of full experience. The auras were represented by
some gauzy substance.
Tho complete evil aura was very
much bedaubed with the "red patches
of murder," the green of Jealousy, and
the brown of avarice.
The perfect aura was shown as tha
sapphire-blue of spirituality, the pinks
of devotion and love of humanity, and
the yellow of Intellect. This, the lecturer said, she had only seen thrice ln
her life—once ln India, once In America, and once ln England.

Some years ago there sat iu the house
of representatives as member from
Missouri a gentleman named Benton.
According to the congressman wbo
tells the story, Mr. Benton was known
ss "the shrewdest and homeliest man
that the state possessed at that time."
In his early days at the bar Mr. Benton had, lt is said, gone to Texas for
the purpose of prosecuting a land
claim. He lost the suit but was so
fortunate as to win au extremely handsome Texas girl, who accompanied him
to his Missouri home. At St. Joseph
the couple were met by a certain General Mitchell, a very plain spoken politician, to whom Mr. Benton Introduced his bride. The old fellow looked
very much surprised. He stared at
Benton and beamed on the oretty
bride. Finally, he could repress himself no longer, so he blurted out:

was paid for medical electrical attendance. Is the largi-st on record. In 1865

Keep Children  Daisy.
There are several rules that should
be observed for the health and beauty
of any child. The first Is to give lt
something to do. No child can play all
day. There should be some kind of
regular task. This will make the child
beautiful as well as healthy. It will
cultivate Its mind aud Its body. A
healthy child should also have something to occupy Its mind. It can, in
Japanese fashion, paste pictures ou the
wall or play with handsome embroideries or train the eye by doing a little
light carving and painting. These are
matters for the Individual to divide.
But a child should keep Itself occupied
lf It Is going to be healthy and handsome,

by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.

All indications point to the continued
popularity of the loug gloves.
The coming season will show an extensive use of black silk laces.
The tailor-made idea predominates in
nearly all rain coats shown.
The absence of high colors is particularly to be noted in fall lines.
A nnmber of plaids are being shown
in colored drosses for children.
In men's scarfs the more vivid colors
seem to be gaining in popularity.
Habit-backed corBets are designed for
wear with the princess costume.
Broadcloths will be a prominent factor in the season's materials.
Some use is also indicated of varying
sizes of cords to be used in designs.
Plaid silk will be used as the linings
for silk voile and marquisette costumes.
Brocades iu medium weights will he
in evidence to quite an extent for fall.
The use of black velvet ribbon ub a
trimming is a new feature in petticoats.
Many of the new wraps are ohara-er-
by broad shoulder trimmings on hoods.
Black satiu slippers with tiny rhine-
stones ara considered very smart for
evening wear.
Plaid skirts, with jackets of plain
cloth, bid fair to be very popular, especially wheu a bit of the plaid of the
skirt is used for belt and strappings.
Fancy jewelry of all kinds, regardless
of the fact that the new season's showings possess unusual merit, is expected
to be favored more than ever thiB fall

Beautiful New Uiterary Publication Has
an Imposing List of Editors, Including Dowager Duchesses, a Princess
and Other Notable Personages of
King Edwr.rd's Court—Scope of the
Paper and Ground It Will Cover.
I English soch'ty has launched l'tselt
Into Journalism In tho form of a very
exotic literary weekly production, entitled The Throne. It costs a shilling.
It ls printed on thick w'Ute paper, each
page 'being richly embellished with Illustrated heads or artistically decorated frame designs, or filled by pictures,
plain or colored. The cover Is of yellow
parchment paper, with the title surmounted by the royal crown In gold.
| The Throne's manager or managers,
who keep themselves steadfastly In the
background, might well call their paper
en exotic literary production, for the
wealthy people It has on Its staff present a wonderful collection of names.
In this first number, for Instance, Princess Louise, the Duchess of Argylle,
contributes a very interesting article on
"Art of Childhood," with five drawings
of much merit.
The Duke of Portland sends an article
on St. Simon, with a fine colored reproduction of a picture of that famous race
horse, the original of which is about to
be presented to the Jockey Club. The
Duke tells somewhat tersely of the merits of his great horse. What ls, perhaps,
most interesting to know ls that St. Simon's stud fees amounted to £236,617
($1,183,085) and the value of the races
won by his stock totalled £500,000
i. Loyal to tha King.
True to Its name, The Throne Is Intensely loyal, and its opening pages
comprise dedications to King Edward
and Queen Alexandra, printed Hi letters-
of gold. King Edward Is summed up
as a monarch of monarchs, statesman
among statesmen, an unequalled diplomat and a world-wide peacemaker.
Lady Susan Yorke, and Mr. Harry
Brooke edit a page, with illustrations,
dealing with society plays and players.
Lady Palmer Is the editor of "Music ol
the Day," and gives also a musical piece
to the readers, "Berceuse," a composite
by a very beautiful American, Mrs. Natalie Townsend.
■ Miss Magdalene Ponsonby edits two
pages of "Drama of the Day." Lady
Brooke, herself an authoress, edits
"Books for the Boudoir," and the Hon.
Mrs. Anstruther reviews the French
novel of the week and takes for her subject "La Rebelle," by Marcelle Tinayre,
with Its exquisite miniatures of men
and women painted by a master hand.
Mrs. Anstruther does her work particularly well.
Lady Troubridge, an authoress of |
considerable experience, provides a feu-
illeton with an elopement story "to be
continued In our next." Lady Belllng-
ham extols upon book plates. "Lady
Lechmere's Rhinoceros Hunt ln East
Africa" ls edited by Susan, Countess of
Malmesbury, who ls in control of the
department of adventure. Lady Armstrong and Mr. Leonard Wllloughby
take up treasure houses, and begin with
Lord Angaster's famous Grlmsthorpe
Castle, with superb Illustrations.
Child Kissed by Princess.
Lady Lytton, formerly Pamela Plow-
den, the beauty of several seasons, edits
and writes on child life, and gives In
■the centre of her article the portrait of
a cherub child, Aileen Doreem Wyllie,
two and a half years old, and described
as "the last child Princess Ena kissed
in this country before her departure
for Spain."
Apparently The Throne ls politically
of no party, for, side by side, on opposite pages, Lady Seymour has a commendatory essay on the Government
and Mrs. Herbert Chamberlain edits a
scathing attack on Sir Henry Camp-
tiell-Bannerman's political combination,
written hy Violet Brooke Hunt. So you
have both sides and can take your
choice. The Dowager Duchess of Newcastle edits BketOheB, very smartly written, of society leaders, and accompanies them with reproductions ln miniature form ot the subjects, who ln the
opening number happen to be Lady
Wlmome, who holds the great salon of
the Liberal party; Lady Llangattock, a
society yachtswoman, whose husband
owns the Santa Maria, and Lady II-
<iliester, the lovely daughter of Lord and
Lady Londonderry, one of the great
beauties of the younger generation and
chatelaine of a famous Holland house,
and Incidentally a very fine rifle sJiot.
Tho quartette Is completed by the
Marchioness of Bute, so well known ln
society before her marriage as Augusta
Historic manuscripts are In charge
of the Dmvager Countess Dudley, who
glvis, with illustrations, the quaint
legend of the Tlchborne family. Mr.
Dole E, Wake Cook discourses on "Justice to Our National Art." The Duchess of Somerset and Mr. H. Clifford
Smith tell the romantic story of the
great ruby, and Lady Helen Forbes ts
Interesting In "The Romance of Heraldry," her article being brightened
with fine illustrations In color, Including one of Millar's famous "Ophelia."
Of a Famous Beauty.
Lady Victoria Manners and Dr. Williamson take up the fascinating subject
of miniatures, giving a lovely one ln
the centre of their page of Georglne,
Duchess of Devonshire, by Cosway, the
woman who Fox said had the loveliest
faco he had ever seen. Lady Colin
Campbell and Mrs. Stuart Ersklne write
of "The Romance of Beauty." and take J
ao a n—ing suDject Elizabeth Gunning, j
Duchess of Hamilton and Argylle. She
was one of two famous jeautlful sisters
destined to make more noise in the
world than had any beautiful 'Women
since the days of Helen of Troy.
Then we find such well known so
clety names as those of the Hon. Mrs.
Frederick Chichester, who tells ln
charming style of her recollections of
that grand old dame, I_ndy Louisa
Tlghe, daughter of the Duke of Richmond; Lady Onslow of Hengar, who
writes of r 'Ses as a professional ln
her knowledge of the queen of flowers,
and the 'charming Countess of Cromar-
tla. who has three pages ln which she
narrates the stirring legend of the Ut*
tie known Hebrides.
Then again thero Is the Dowager
Countess of Gottenham editing ln con
Junction with Mr. Wellington Farmbor
ough, fellow of the Zoological Society,'
an essay on ''Pythons as Pets," written
by the Hon. Mrs. Arthur Cadogan, who
from her own account has passed a
large part of her life in close companionship with snakes and other reptiles,
and who has no fear of the serpent and
his kind.

Kangaroo Hunt In England.
The unusual  event of    a    kangaroo
hunt has occurred near Crawley, Sus
Sir Edmund Giles Loder, Bart., of
Lennardslee Park, Horsham, has a private zoological collection, said to be the
second best In the country. Some of the
kangaroos a short time ago escaped
from their Inclosure, and notwithstanding the efforts of the estate workmen to recapture them, got right away.
The animals wero seen a few days
subsequently in St. Leonard's Forest,
and later were observed In Tilgate Forest, Crawley, soveral miles from their
place of confinement. Tho farmers In
tha neighborhood have ibeen somewhat
alarmed at the appearance of the kangaroos, It being known that the animals
In their native haunts are very destructive to grass and crops.
During tho last few days kangaroo
hunts have been frequent In tho district, but so far no capture has been
The other day a young kangaroo was
found dead ln the forest, having apparently succumbed to the cold, and the

Plgr* In China.
A Peking correspondent says: "It ls
no uncommon sight to see twelve or
thirteen enormous fat pigs, witb their
legs tied, huddled close together having
a ride in a Chinese cart with some
sort of light cargo on top of them and
a man sitting on tbe cargo. The pigs
are silent, and consequently one would
think they should not be objects for
the action of the Society For the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The
fact is that the animals are too fat and
lazy to make any noise until disturbed
at their journey's end, when bagpipes
are as Italian opera to the terrific
squealing heard."

Choosing:  Meat. '
In selecting beef for roasts or steaks
see that the lean Is firm and red and
that the meat ts finely grained The
fat should be firm and white. Never
accept any meat which looks flabby or
discolored or on which the fat Is yellow. In choosing mutton the meat
should be dark, with plenty of fat In
It. Meat without fat shows poorly fed
stock. If the fat Is yellow and the
meat seems wet or moist do not accept'
It. As a general rule all meat should
be firm, never flabby. Lamb and veal
should both be light colored, pale—veal,!
In fact cannot be too white. '

Made Strong and Steady by Dr. Wil
Mams' Pink Pills.
When your nerves are out of order
your whole health is on the verge of
a breakdown. Sudden sounds startle
you; your muscles twitch and your
hands tremble; your self-control is
shattered; your will-power gone.
Your head aches; your feet are often
cold and your face flushed. Your
heart jumps and thumps at the least
excitement; you are restless at night
and tired when you wake. Your
temper is Irritable and you feel utterly down-hearted. And the whole
trouble is because your blood is too
thin and watery to keep the nerves
strong. There is only one way to
have strong, healthy nerves—feed
them with the rich red blood that
only Dr. Williams' Pink Pills can
make—and do make. Mr, Fred Forth,
17 Sullivan street, Toronto, says: —
"I was a complete wreck with nervous prostration, but Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills have made a new man of
me. I had been nervous for years;
the least noise wolild startle me, and
the least exertion would leave me utterly prostrated. I lost in weight,
aud physically I wns almost a wreck.
I had not taken the pills long when 1
found they were helping me; my appetite Improved, my nerves began to
grow steady, and day by day I gained
until I was again a well num. My
weight Increased twenty-five pounds
while I was using the pills. To any
who suffer as I did, I can say that if
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills ure given a
fair trial, a cure will be sure to follow."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills restored
Mr. Forth, simply because they made
the rich, pure blood which properly
nourishes the nerves und keeps them
strong. They will cure all the ills
eases due to bad blood and shattered
nerves, such as anaemia, indigestion,
headaches and backaches, rheumatism, lumbago, St. Vitus dnnce, paralysis, general weakness and the secret ailments of growing girls and
women. But you must always insiBt

In the Monthly Review, Mr. Paul
Uhlenhuth writes on the blood relationship of man and apes, nnd describes
how, by means of the precipitin test,
various albuminous substances and
the blood of different animals mny be
distinguished from one another. The
test has also considerable medico legal
Importance, and biologically may be
employed to ascertoin the relationship
of various animals to one nnother. In
this way it may be shown that the anthropoid npes are most nearly akin to
man, while the lemurs are but distantly. If at all. related to him.

Swine On Rape.
Usually the plan Is best that turns
sheep ou to rape when lt ls well grown,
says Professor Thomas Shaw. Ths
rape provides more food when grazed
down under these conditions than
when grazed earlier and then again
after lt has grown up more or less. It
is probable, however, that swine will
do better on rape when turned In somewhat earlier. They prefer rape leaves
green and succulent. Sheep fatten bet
ter on rape that has produced much ol
stem. But rape should not be grazed by
any kind ot stock when young or the
slants sn, be destroyed.

"Thanks!  Good-bye!"
Vnnc watched him as ho went out
of the room, then sank into a chair
—not the chair in which Julian had
sat—and buried his face in his hands.
How iong he snt he knew not then
or ever; but, suddenly remembering
the unhappy wretch, he sprang to
his   feet and hurried  into  the hall.
lie almost ran into the arms of
Prance, who uttered a yell of amazement  and fear,   calling on his name:
"Lord Lesboroughl"
"Mr.   Julian!"  cried Vane.
"Mr. Julian! Lord Lesborough!
His lordship went out a quarter of
an hour ago! Hut—but—oh, lord,
who are you, sir? Oh, my lord, is it
you,  is it vou?"
Tho whole household was in confusion. The clamor of tongues, tho
cries and screams and tears of relief and thanksgiving so confused
Vane that he was thwarted in his
intention of following the unhappy
man. llut at last he got a carriage
and drovo to the station, to lind
that Julian had departed by the
train which had left a few minutes
before  Vane arrived.
"Decima!" screamed Polly, wfien,
with t.h» merest apology for a knock,
Nina entered the familiar rooms in
I'erey Street, tho room in which
she had found loving Bheltor in her
time of need, the room in which she
had trimmed hats and bonnets, and
afterwards—oh, great achievement!—
written plays for thn members of
Mr. Harcourt's company! "Dccima!" and Polly, with the tears in
her eyes, hugged her dear friend, never dearer than in this moment of
her return. "How well you are looking, and how—how— Decima, something has happened to you! Something thnt's altered you in a way
that I can't describe. You never
looked so happy, and with such a
light in your eyos, not even on the
first night of the play! Sit down!
Take your things off! Let me give
you another kiss, you dear, sweet
thing! And now tell me all nbout it!
The voyage! Tho adventures you
hinted at! Did you find that mysterious island—why didn't you tell
me more about it? Did you find it,
and is that whnt makes you look so
heavenly radiant and running over
with joy?"
"Yes, I found it, Polly," replied
Nina, "but it was something else I
found that makes me so happy.
You'll never guess! Come closer and
I'll—I'll whisper!"
Polly knelt beside her, and Nina,
blushing like a schoolgirl, whispered
one word, at which Polly shrieked:
"What! A husband! Decima! Who
—who  is he? Tell  me quick,  quick!"
And when Nina had told her that,
and a great deal more—in lact, the
history of the wreck and her str.an,_o
marriage—1'01'iy, all a-neap on tno
floor, could only stare at her open-
mouthed wilh wonder, delight and
"-Married, married all the time!
And to an earl! And you are a
countess! Lady Lesborough! Oh,
poor Lord Sutcombe!" Nina laid her
hand on Polly's lips. "A countess!
and been one all tho time! And here
was I treating you as if you were a
mere nobody, just like myself! And
yet, somehow, I always suspected—"
"That I was a princess in disguise! 'Changed at my birth with
the rightful owner,' as tho Irishman said. You dear, foolish Polly!
As if it made any difference who and
what I am! And—and I think you
will  like my  husband,  dear."
Polly emitted an "Oh! Like him. I
—shall be afraid. An earl, a real
English earl. De—I mean, Lady Lesborough!"
"You dure! 'Decima,' if you please.
Oh, no, you won't be afraid of him.
What nonsense! You are not afraid
of Lord Sutcombe!'-
"Oh, but he's only a viscount, or
whatever it is, and yours is a real,
belted earl!" explained Polly,
delicious naivete. "What is he
Nina  laii-iied  softly,  ai]d her
grew drcntny ana loim.
"He is tall and very straight, with
broad shoulders; and ho is very
strong and good-looking; quite
bronzed and tanned, with eyes that
—" She broke off with a laugh at
herself. "Oh, he is a son of tho
gods—not our gallery gods, Tolly,
but the Olympian ones; 'a model of
grace, and full of virtue;' but his chief
one is that he condescends to love
poor littlo mo!"
Polly looked up at the radiant
face, the graceful figure, aud, laughing,  tossed her head scomfuMy.
"As if he could help it! I'd like to
see auy man who could! MnrrledP"
Then she sighed. "You'll write no
more plays, Decima; that's sure and
certain! It's a pity, for ' 'Twixt
Love and Love' is doing so very
"It's not at all sure and certain,"
.aid Nina. "Why shouldn't I? No
one will know that 'Herbert Wood'
Is Lady Lesborough; and if they did!
But you must talk it over with niy
husband when you meet him tonight."
"Yes," said Nina, laughing at her
tone of awe. "Here is a note from
Ludy Vivienne. She wants us all to
go to the Momus to-night, and come
back to supper with them. I am
looking forward to  it  so much!"
Tho play went splendidly that evening, and Nina, sitting well behind
the curtain of the box, was all
aglow with pleasure and honest pride
in her work. It was sweet to see
Vane applauding and looking round
the delighted audience with glowing
eyes, as if he were saying: "Clap
away; shout your hardest, good folk;
my wife wrote this play."
They went home to Evcrsleigh
Court, where the Sutcombes had
provided a supper, which, if It had
not been so substantial, would have
been suspiciously like a wedding
breakfast; aud at Vane's warm
greeting and the friendly look in his
frank eyes all Polly's awe and nervousness  fled.
"I little thought. Miss Bainford,
when I wns watching you act, with
the greatest admiration, that I was
looking at my wife's dearest and
best friend," he said, as he held her
hnnd in his warm grasp. "I can't
tell you how often she and I have
spoken of you, or how much I have
wanted to see you and—thunk you!
1 hope you will share your friendship
for her with mo. Will you?"
It was a very happy little party,
though every now and then a shadow stole over Vane's faco. He could
not altogether get rid of tho memory of Julian—of tho whito, livid
face, with its black eyes gleaming
from their dark hollows.
"What do you think will become ol
him?" he had asked Lctchford and
Sutcombo earlier in tho evening.
Cure For Egg Eating.
Put a dummy egg In each nest box
and one or two about the run, says P.
Kazmeler ln American Poultry Journal. The egg eaters very soon give up
trying to break these and all other
eggs In disgust This plan has the further merit of leaving lt unnecessary to
pick out the particular offender, which
Is often very difficult. I do not know
who originated the Idea, but It certatn-
lt will often save considerable trouble
and annoyance.

Th*   Graceful   Po*e   of  the   Anluinl.
When on the Trail.
The 11—ie grace of the weasel may
be observed whenever it is on the trail.
At an even speed, with nose to the
ground, Its reddish brown back seems
literally to glide along through the rank
herbage by tbe bank.
It may be the scent of a rat, and the
trail may take lt in and out of the
bank a good many times before lt
comes up with its victim. It may even
have to swim a stream before Its persistence ls rewarded. It ls wonderful
how small a hole tbat long, arched
body can glide into and emerge from
without the slightest difficulty.
When lt has caught and killed Its
prey its movements are equally graceful as lt carries the spoil home to its
hole. Crossing a Kentish field I saw a
weasel coming along under the hedgerow red toothed from the chase. There
was the same sinuous motion of the
back, but the little beast's head was
beld as blgh as possible and from its
mouth hung tbe limp carcass of a
young rat, freshly killed. The weasel
held it by the neck end so high, for all
the shortness of its legs, that ouly the
end of the rat's tail dragged through
the grass.
A family of weasels will often hunt
In company, aud tbls ls naturally a
most Interesting sight to witness. The
ability of the weasel to enter exceedingly small holes Is owing entirely to
the structure of its body—its flat head,
long neck and short limbs and tail. In
a cornrlc-k It can pursue mice with ease
s long their burrows.—London Mail.
Sea Gnlla an Pirate*.
There may be an advantage ln birds
living in colonies, but I cannot 6ee how
any other birds would want to live
near a colony of gulls. A gull ln his
own country will steal like a politician
and murder like a pirate. They swarm
about us like vultures after a battle.
The minute our approach drove a
murre or cormorant from its nest the
snlntly looking scalawags swooped
down to eat the eggs and young.
While the gulls are freebooters and
robbers on the Island, lt ls only wheu
other birds are frightened from their
nests that they have a chance to carry
on their nefarious trade. Eternal vigilance ls the price the latter pay for
their eggs and young. Except when
they are frightened by the approach
of some person, their possessions are
never left for an Instant without a
guard. But the fittest manage to survive on the rocks, and tbese gulls are
the most useful birds In the bays and
rivers about the waterfronts of our
cities. They are valuable as scavengers and should be protected ln every
way. Three of them are equal to a
buzzard. Ten of these gulls are equal
to a pig.—The World Todaj.
The Size of the San.
The sun, provided we measure only
tbe disk seen with the smoked glass, ls
800,000 miles In diameter—1. e., 108
earths could be comfortably ranged
siue by side across the disk. To cover
the surface would require many thousands. To fill the interior we should
need 1,300,000. On a smaller scale we
might represent the sun by a ball two
feet In diameter and tbe earth by a
good sized grain of shot. Let the sun
be hollowed out, then place the earth
at Its center and let the moon revolve
about It at Its real distance of 240,000
mlles. There would yet remain nearly
200,000 miles of space between the
moon's orbit and the inclosing shell of
the sun. Indeed to Journey from one
side of the sun to the otber, through
the center, would take one of our swift
express trains nearly two aud a half
years. So vast a globe must be heavy.
Since Its density Is only one-quarter
that of the earth It ouly weighs as
much as 832,000 earths, or two octillions of tons. Tho attraction of gravity
on Its surface would cause a man
whose weight was 150 pounds to weigh
two tons     .
A Life of Freedom.
People sometimes think how delightful lt would be to be quite free. But
a fish, as Ruskin says, Is freer tban a
man, and, as for a fly, It Is "a black
Incarnation of freedom." A life of so
called pleasure and self Indulgence is
not a life of real happiness or tru.
freedom. Far from It. If we once begin to give way to ourselves we fall
under a most Intolerable tyranny. Other temptations are ln some respects
like that of drink. At first, perhaps, lt
t'eems delightful, but there ls bitterness at the bottom of the cup. Men
drink to satisfy the desire created by
previous Indulgence. So tt is In other
things. Repetition soon becomes a
craving, not a pleasure. Resistance
grows more and more painful. Yielding, which at first, perhaps, afforded
some slight and temporary gratification, soon ceases to give pleasure and,
even If for a time it procures relief,
ere long becomes odious Itself.

Flag   of   the   Campbells   Once   Mors
Flutters In the Breeze on the Tower
of  Inverary  Castle.
Greatly to the satisfaction of all good
Scotchmen, the flag of the house of
Campbell, known up In the north as
"The Galley of Lome," once more flutters In the breeze on the tower of Inverary Castle, showing that the
strangers have departed from the ancestral abode of the Dukes of Argyll,
and that the Campbells have come to
their own again, writes the Marquise
de Fontenoy. True, lt ls not the Duke
of Argyll himself who is ln residence
there but his yonngber brother, Lord
George Campbell, who has taken ovei
the lease of the place from Mr. Cresswell, Its recent tenant, f.r the remainder of the four years that lt has to
run. Mr. Cresswell was only too anxious to get rid of the place. For there
ls an old superstition ln Scotland, and
especially ln the County of Argyll, to
the effect that the occupancy of Inverary Castle brings misfortune to any
one who ls not a Campbell. Certainly
the experiences of the tenants of the
place, since the present duke decided
to let it after the death of his father.
would seem to lend color to the story.
For during the six years that have
elapsed since then, several lessees have
succeeded one another, two of then)
dying suddenly, -while a third was overtaken by financial disaster. No wonder,
therefore, that Mr. Cresswell has tieen
glad to give up the place.
Inverary Castle as It now stands ia
ono of the works of the famous architect Adam,  who began It  ln the year
1744 for the third Duke of Argyll. The
banks of the River Aray have, however, been the home of the chiefs of the
great clan of Campbell for more than
500 years, and the ruins of the old baronial hall, built by the first Earl of
Argyll, are still to be seen close to the
present castle. The latter ls constructed of a sort of slate colored stone In
the castellated style, with round towers at the angles, and surmounted by a
great square tower in the centre. The
great hall of the castle, which ls beneath this central tower, ls filled with
ancient armor, and weapons, comprising 100 muskets which were used    In
1745 by the Campbells, when "Prince
Charlie," as pretender, had all Scotland up ln arms. One side of the castle slopes down towards Loch Fyne,
one of the most famous and beautiful
of the lochs of the western Highlands.
The history of the Campbells Is the
history of Scotland. No family has
borne a larger share ln the trials and
triumphs of that northern kingdom
than the clan of which MacCallum
More ls the chief. It ls owing to this
that the name of Inverary figures so
frequently both In Scottish history and
Scottish literature, and it will be familiar to every reader of the novels ol
Walter Scott. Burns, too, has been
eloquent about the castle ln his poems,
though in an unfriendly strain. For
falling to receive proper hospitality on
the part of the duke of his days, when
he visited the castle, he revenged himself by the following well-known lines:
Whoe'er he be that sojourns here,
I pity much his case.
Unless he come to W-Ji. upon
The lord, their god. his grace.
There's naething hero but Highland
And Highland cauld and hunger;
If Providence has sent me here,
'Twas surely in his anger.
Inasmuch as the union of the present Duke of Argyll and of Princess
Louise has remained childless, the next
heir to the dukedom and to the many
other dignities and estates is his brother, Lord Archibald Campbell, who,
being a rich man and an enthusiastic
Highlander, devoted to the maintenance
of all the old customs and traditions of
the land of tne north, may be rehed
upon not only to establish his headquarters at Inverary, when he succeeds to the dukedom, but likewise tn
revive all of its former glories and
Lord Archibald, to whom the Scotch
regiments of the British army are Indebted for the retention of their distinctive kilts and tartans which the War
Department was beat upon abolishing
In 1881, ls to-day the senior partner
and most active manager of Coutts'
bank, where both the King and Queen
keep private accounts, and which he
entered on the nomination of Lady
Burdett-Coutts five and thirty years
ago, Previous to that he had held a
clerkship In a firm of wine merchants
at Bordeaux, and had afterwards spent
four years In a samllar capacity with
* firm of tea brokers in Mincing lane,
Lord Archibald's eult for everything
Scottish has led him to organize th*
so-called "Highland Association,"
which does for old Highland musio
much of the same work as the Eisteddfod does for the Welsh folk songs, and
the movement has accomplished a great
deal towards reviving the old Highland
spirit by encouraging the children to
sing the purely national airs to the
music of the clarsach, as the ancient
Highland harp Is called. Lord and Lady
Archibald are talented people, and the
open air performances of Shakespearean plays at Coomb,- hill, their place
at Kingston-on-Thames, were, at on*
time, famous.
Lord Archibald Is a wonderfully
clever artist with his lirush, and waa
an intimate friend and close associate
of Whistler. His only daughter, Mis*
Elspeth Campbell, an extremely handsome girl, possesses the queer accomplishment for a woman of being abl*
to play the bagpipes. Her only brother, Nlall Campbell, who has shown
strong leanings towards Roman Catholicism, has so far shown no sign ol

bachelor of arts three years later. Dr.
Luce began her teaching career as a
high school Instructor ln the high
schools of Putnam, Conn., and of
Wellesley,   Mass..   nnd   later   in   the
Girls' Latin school, Boston, where she
was Instructor' in English and mathematics for eight yenrs, until 1893. In
that year sbe discontinued teaching

weather a street cur ride in good company into the suburbs. But she hurries to her little room ufter the evening meal on one pretext or another,
shuts herself ln and, extricating from
I the depths of her bag o book which she
would not show to her mother, falls
Into a sort of trance over it and, if
there ls no sister to shure her bed, reads
till sleep overpowers her. It is probably loug after midnight when she-
creeps Into bed, mumbling a prayer
which ls almost worse thun none. She
has by no means hud enough of sleep
