Olive's Courtship
Author of "A Cruel Revenge," "A Forbidden Marriage," "A Beautiful Coquette," "The
Heiress of Cameron Hall"
When Boirer n'nndenning had found
himself alone, after the constrained
departure of his brother, for a moment he felt almost dazed; his heart
beat in great strangling throbs, and
the busy world outside seemed to
stand still.
He aroused himself by the greatest
effort to look life in the face once
more and bear the double blow that
had fallen on him. It had been his
own fault, this terrible thing that
had happened; he should never have
introduced his .handsome, fascinating brother to the young girl he
loved, but to whom he had not as
yet had the courage to declare that
He had toiled hard, and had shared his earnings liberally with his
brother while Oscar was out. of a
situation. Thus furnished with spend-
ing-money and his expenses paid,
handsome Oscar seemed in no hurry
to find "something to do." When
Roger would remonstrate with him,
and remind him that he had to work
or starve, Oscar was always ready
with his answer, declaring enthusiastically that he was just on the
point of a big deal that would mean
a fortune. Ho generally added, graciously, that he would share it with
Roger,  dollar for dollar.
These schemes always proved visionary; they were sure to fall
through, or fail to come to a head,
and at last Roger grew tired of listening to them or hoping for good
results. In ruminating over the matter, Roger always said to himself
that Oscar was certainly extremely
anxious to work, but fate was
against hi—1, and he could find no
congenial situation open to him, but
that his ill-fortune must take a turn
soon. And this Rreat-hearted, innocent fellow thanked Heaven that he
was making sufficient for both, and
could help Oscar bridge over the present tide of ill luck.
That Satan always finds mischief
for idle hand* to do was clearly exemplified lu this case. Roger thought
of that as he stood alono in the
judge's private inner offlce, battling
with the greatest sorrow that had
ever come to him.
While he had been busily toiling,
Oscar had found plenty of time to
visit Olive Kneeland—to walk with
her, to drive with her, to accompany her here and there, and make
love to her; while he—ah! how blind
he had been to it all until tho blow
From that moment he meant to
tear all thought of beautiful Olive
from his breast, even though it cost
him his life; yet to give her up to
his own brother, handsome, indolent,
affable Oscar, was more than he
could endure with fortitude.
' "May Heaven find pardon for me!"
he muttered. "I almost feel toward
him as Cain felt toward Abel, but
for her sake I will try and save him
from the consequences of his crime.
Yes, I will do everything in my power for him because she loves him,
and to punish him would be to striko
a blow at her heart!"
Crushing his hat firmly over his
eyes, he was about to pass hurriedly
out of the office, wondering, meanwhile, where he should go first to
try and raise that thousand dollars
which meant so much to his brother,
when Judge Knecland's bell rang
sharply. Roger drew back, turning
pale to the lips. He prayed to
Heaven that tho judge was not at
leisure, and had sent for him to
talk with him upon the subject under discussion when they wero interrupted. Oreat God! whit could ho
say about that now, only to tell
him that he had since learned that
it was useless for him to aspire to
Olive's hand, for he had just discovered that she loved another, and that
other his own brother?
Then, too, every moment wasted
was fatal to Oscar, for might not'
that note be presented at any time?
He must make some excuse to leave
the office. Oscar would be waiting
(or him.
Little dreaming what was in store
for him, the private secretary opened the judge's door and entered his
presence. One glance, and he did not
take the second step forward, but
stood as If rooted to the spot.
Judge Kneeland stood in the centre
of the  room,   his     face  fairly  livid
with passion and purple in spots, his
eyes  aflame with  rage most terrible
to behold, and his lips    flecked witb
In his hand he held a slip of paper.
Roger Glendenning knew almost before he spoke that it was tho   fatal
note.  Great God I   he was too    late
to save Oscar, for Olive's dear sako!
"What is the    meaning of    this!"
thundered the judge,  facing him, the
very  incarnation  of fury.      "Speak!
what have you to say to this?"
But Roger could not speak; the
words he would have uttered died
away in his throat in a gasping
«rro»n. -In .on JnUtoJlt  tftf full    con-
suqifeifees' ol "8sca_-"****"roliy swept Before his mind's eye. He saw him undor arrest, then in a prison cell, and
Olive's fair form bowed with grief,
an outcast from her father's heart
and home because she dared plead
with her father for mercy for her
lover, and to say that sho would be
true to him and wed him at last,
though she had to wait long years
for him. Yes, he saw it all mapped
out before him as in a rapidly moving panorama.
"What have you to say?" roared
Judge Kneeland, fiercely. "How dared you, poltroon and craven that
you are, turn and sting the hand
that gave you bread! Do not mention my daughter's name, or even refer to her in any way; she can not
save you; she is dropped out of tho
subject altogether. I have difficult
work to remember that I am a gentleman, and one who must respect
the law, so terribly am I tempted to
chastise you on the spot, so greatly
am I incensed. This is your writing;
I would know it anywhere; it was
made payable to yourself, and you
collected the money. What have you
to say as to why tlio full penalty of
tne law snould not be imposed upon
you, and thus remove one forger
from the many criminals about us?
Your audacity is wonderful to me;
the more my mind dwells upon it,
the angrier I get. There is no punishment too severe for the man who
steals another's purse or forges his
name. A man who could commit
either crimo would in time murder,
if occasion but held opeu that door
by which the guilty man could escape or cover up his tracks."
While Judge Kneoland had been
hurling out these words between his
set teeth, Roger Glendenning had
been thinking with tho rapidity of
lightning. He could not betray
Olive's lovor—his owu brother. Ah!
nol ho could not; his whole soul
shrunk from it. Then there was but
one alternative, only one, and that
was to shift the terrible affair upon
bis own shoulders and bear the brunt
of it. What had he to lose. Thero
was no one in the wide world who
cared for him; no one would weep
for him. His life was a blank; hope,
ambition, love, lay in ruins at his
feet—the future lookod black as
night, without one gleam of light
to hrighten his soul. If the penalty
had been death, ho would have dropped on his knees and prayed the angels to send it to him then and
"What have you to say?" repeated
Judge Kneeland, his anger increasing with every breath.
Roger Glendenning stood beforo
him liko a figure carved in marble,
his anus folded tightly over his
heaving chest, his head bent low on
his breast, and his face white as it
would ever be in death.
"What cau I say, sir," he faltered,
hoarsely; "do with me—as—you will
—if—if—you refuso to give me the—
the opportunity to go out and raise
the money, which I am sure I could
do in an hour's timo. I—"
"What! Ask me to compound a felony, I, whose duty it is to punish
such dastardly offences to tho very
extent of my power! You havo tho
temerity to ask this of me?"
As he spoke he jerked the bell-rope
violently, and his secretary knew
too well what that action meant to
expect any mercy from tho man before him.
In response to his summons one of
the court officers entered, inquiring
of tho judge,  "Did you ring, sir?"
"Tako that man into custody," ho
said, harshly, pointing to- Roger
Glendenning. "I have just detected
bim in a most atrocious forgery of
my name. He makes no denial of bis
guilt. Take him below. I will see you
very shortly."
It was oue of tho hardest duties
the officer ever performed, placing
the young private secretary under
arrest, for he had always held Glendenning in such high esteem. Once,
and not very long ago, when tbo officer's little boy lay dying, and he
had no money to pay for the luxuries the doctor ordered, it was this
samo kind-hoarted young secretary
who came to him, placed a ten-dollar bill in his hand, bidding him not
to feel offended with the offer, but to
take it for his little oue's sake. The
mothor of the little ono had said ever since that her child owed his recovery to Judge Knecland's noble
The man's hand trembled as he
laid it on Roger's shoulder, then he
drew back, and, strong man though
he was, there wen. tears in his honest eyes.
"I—I—would rather resign than—
than—arrest him, sir," he said, turning imploringly to the judge.
"Do your sworn duty!" cried
Judge Kneeland, his intenso wrath
at tho man's sympathy knowing no
"Better you than any ono else,"
said Glendenning, hoarsely. "I can
attach no blame to you."

Left to himself. Judge Knecland
paceU hurriedly -up and down the
room with rapid strides.
"Great Godl of all men in the
world, Roger Glendenning is the
very last man whom I would have
suspected of a desire to commit a
forgery. I would not have believed
the evidence of my own eyos hardly,
had he not admitted it by not daring to deny tho accusation; and to
make the matter worse, I was just
about to give my fair young Olive
to him, trusting to his steady habits to make her a. good husband. I
am sure Olive cares for the fellow.
Zounds! what could a smart man like
myself have been thinking of to allow them to be thrown so constantly into each other's society? It was
a, great mistake." .

Wbat lone ot the Card* of the Children Contained.
The door of tbe Settlement library
opened and tn rushed the children, all
ages and sizes, from the kindergarten
to the highest grade af three of the
large public schools.
The librarian examined the cards
which had been filled out at home with
the signature of the child aud that of
the father.
"Alfretta, you have forgotten to put
down what your father does," said
Miss Jones •■ she took the card from a
little colored girl.
"My name ls Miss Alfretta," replied
the child, "and my father is a traveling
Wi net. Miss Jones," Interrupted
Tom Brown. "He's just a common
porter on the train."
"Well," said Miss Alfretta, "doesn't
he travel, and lf he travels Isn't he •
traveling man, I'd like to know?"
"John, you have not told what your
father does." Miss Jones turned to
the child next ln line.
"I don't want to tell, and he said I
Wasn't to tell, neither," replied John,
looking half scared.
"But I muBt know what your father
does before you can take any books."
"Wel!."-poor little John caught his
breath—"I do so want to take books,
but If he knows I told he'll lick me.
I'll Just whisper It to you, and no one
else need hear." So be went close to
Miss Jones and, putting his arm around
ber neck, whispered, "He's the bearded
lady at the dime museum."
"Next!" Miss Jones wrote something
hurriedly on the card.
"I want, to explain about mine." A
llttle girl stepped forward eagerly. "I
wrote my own name myself, but my
father, being dead, was unable to write
bis, so I wrote It for him, but my
mother wrote hers herself."
"Annie, you hayen't told ns wbat
your father does."
"Please, he works hard. He nays he
does," said Annie.
"Well, what does he work hard at?"
"He works at being an invalid."
"My father Is a miller," said the next
"My mother is a housekeeper."
"My father ls a carpenter."
"Mine Is a peddler, for he peddles."
"I don't know what to do about my
card," said Julia Trusky, pushing her
way toward the desk. "You see, It's
this way. My mother has divorced my
father, and I don't know If I ought to
send the card to him or wait until next
week, for then I am to have a new father."— Llpplncott's Magazine.

John Arres Mather,   Scotland,   Tells
How They Handle Manure For
Profit In That Land.
About five years ago I got a manure
spreader direct from America, through
seeing the advertisement in your valuable paper, writes Johu Arres Mather
in American Agriculturist 1 believe
this was the flrst ever introduced Into
Britain. Two years after I got another
machine from the same makers, with
several Improvements over the flrst
one, through agents they had by this
time appointed in England. Both these
machines have spread a large quantity
of stable and other rough manure
since I got tbem, spreading considerably over 100 acres every year with
from 16 to 20 loads per acre. They
are simply invaluable, aud during the
last year several farmers ln our
neighborhood are going In for them.
When the fields we wish to manure
are near the yard, we haul with
spreaders direct from covered cattle
yards, and ln doing this we save all
the expense of hand spreading—about
$6 per acre I would say. Then the
machine does the work so much better, tearing and pulverizing all BOrts
of manure, but fine manure It does to
We are in the habit here of putting
most of the manure on oat stubble
(which followed grass or meadow, or
lea aa we call lt) ln autumn, plowing
it under with a furrow 10 Inches deep
on land to be devoted to green crops
the next season. In March we harrow and cultivate and clean several
times, as we have opportunity, up to
the beginning of May, when we begin
to sow turnips. We mix 336 pounds
of superphosphate (containing 2l> to
28 per cent, of soluble phosphate) with
112 pounds of bone meal containing
4*_ per cent ammonia and 50 to 64
per cent phosphates costing about
$3.25 for each acre. This is sown broadcast (not with the spreader, but
another machine) and harrowed, then
we ridge up Into 27-lnch drills and sow
the turnips with a double drill sowing
machine, and single out with a 7-lnch
hoe when the turnips are large enough.
We could not grow turnips without ar-
tlflclal manure. I have tried lt on oats
end beets and did not find lt profitable,
also on grass for hay, but nitrate of
soda is good for tbls purpose.
Our rotation ls as follows: Two
years ln grass (flrst year possibly
hayed), third year oats, fourth turnips aad a few potatoes, fifth barley
and oats sown along with clover and
grass seeds. We pull half of the turnips, take two rows and leave the next
two, aud so on. Then we turn on sheep
to feed on the turnips ■ left unbar-
vested, making a fold with temporary
fences or buddies big enough for 300
sheep to feed three or four days. Wo
have dry soil and a dry climate, and
of all our farming we find the feeding of sheep most profitable, and no
other way can you enrich land more,
particularly lf you give the sheep,
which we Invariably do, corn (grain)
and care when eating the turnips.
Manure made after Christmas ls
left ln covered cattle yards until midsummer, after the busy hay harvest ls
over, when we haul It out with an
ordinary farm cart, a single horse
dump cart on two wheels, and mako
a large heap that would do ten acres,
taking the horse and cart over and
then treading It firmly. When thus
completed, we cover the pile all over
the top with earth or dead weeds and
lt remains this way till the autumn
with very little waste. This heap (or
mtddlng as we call lt) ls oval shaped
so that the rain runs off. We arrange
these heaps lu such a way that the
spreader has not far to go without
working, and when you have two machines with an assistant to help teamster to All, we get over a lot of work.
When one Is being emptied, the other
ls getting filled. Then by putting
studs ln the wheels to keep them
from skidding, we can spread in frost
or snow. It is also very valuable for
spreading manure on grass land, it
spreads so evenly and pulverizes so
thoroughly. Of course on a large farm
like this (600 acres) the hauling out
ls a big Job. I would not get along

.The Woman Who Takes Pleaanre la
tho Happlnrai of Others.
A woman who has taught herself to
give up cheerfully, taking pleasure ln
the happiness of others, becomes generous ln mind and heart, giving help to)
all with whom she associates.
She Is able to rise above the mean Influence of gossip or scandal, for In-
stanoe, because, being generous minded, ihe can give others tbe benefit of
tho 'lotibt, and the kindness of spirit
that. ls part of generosity keeps her
faith strong tn the good and makes her
doubt, the bad, says the New York
Telej ram. The spirit will go even
farth ir, for lf the bad ls proved lt
gives assistance either by word or act,
not bitterly or grudgingly, but sweetly
and kindly because of the generous
nature that prompted.
Much tbat passes for generosity ls
either Indifference or a form of self
cot celt. No desirable reputation ls
mere easy to gain than one for generosity, as a woman may by sending
caitoff gowns to poor relatives, giving
maney or other gifts to friends on
philanthropies, and ln other such ways
b.ing quoted as a person who gives.
This way not be generosity, though
Undoubtedly It Is giving, and It ls pleasant and gratifying to be known as a
benefactor, no matter ln how limited a
way. Indifference that passes for generosity Is that form of giving that ls
done because It is expected and lt Is
easier to give thau to refuse.
True generosity lies deeper than either of these, and with it Is happiness.

Character In a Room.
The suggestion that a room should be
a reflection of oneself ls more than
worth giving heed to. It is worth acting upon. Whenever we enter a room
we receive certain vibrations, attractive
or unattractive, aud much as we get
from characters we meet. There are
two aspects to the individuality of a
room arrangement, and these are the
general and the personal, and they
should pleasantly agree. Every room
should portray a personal note. Even
a room in a boarding house may be
made like the Individual occupying It,
Which is certainly the culmination of
art This does not necessarily mean
that the person whose temperament is
turbulent should manifest this In room
arrangement or that a mild, delicate
person should have bouse furnishings
to match, but It does mean that the
room should be decisive and characteristic in making them more beautiful
and better adapted to the person who
dwells therein.

But There Is Quick Relief From Itching and
Thorough Cure In
Dr. Chase's Ointment.
It may be truthfully stated that piles
produce more excruciating pain, misery and -wretchedness of feeling than
uny known disease. Life becomes a
perfect burden during the attacks of
Itching,  burning,  stinging pains.
It is a great mistake to imagine that
the effects of piles are local, for, as a
matter of fact, they sap the vitality
of mind and body and slowly but surely lead to the ruination of the health.
This Is true of Itching and protruding as well as of bleeding piles, which,
because of the loss of blood, are more
rapid ln their disastrous effects.
Dr. Chase's Ointment brings almost
Instant relief from the itching, burning, stinging sensations of piles and
is a positive and thorough cure for
every form of this wretched, torturing, and oftentimes stubborn disease.
This has been proven in so many
thousands of cases that there is no
longer any room for doubt that Dr.
Chase's Ointment Is the mos,t satisfactory treatment for piles that was
ever discovered.
Mr. John Johnson, Cowley, Alta.,
writes:—"Three years ago I was cured
of blind, itching piles of 27 years
standing by using Dr. Chase's Ointment. I used to think that death
would be the only relief I would ever
get from the terrible misery of piles.
Often I was laid up for three days at
a time and al other times worked
when I should have been In bed.
"Dr. Chase's Ointment is worth sixty dollars a box instead of sixty cents.
I am a different man since using it.
I am farming all the time and never
miss a day. Words fall to express my
gratitude for the cure this ointment
made for me. I cannot tell half as

8sid to Be Growing In Toronto—What
Druggists Say.
The use of leeches ls said to be arrowing in Toronto. Leeches are mostly
bought by people who have had a blaw
or fall, causing a blue spot to appear
where the blood has congested. They
apply leeches to take out the blood from
these spots.
The best leeches are known as the
Mediterranean leech and come from
San Gulguela, Spain. They are about
three Inches long, with a soft Bmooth
body tapering to each extremity, and
are marked with from ninety to ons
hundred, fine annulatlons; their backs
aro olive green with six rusty red
longitudinal stripes. The ends art
terminated by suckers.
A peculiar medical law provides that
a druggist must not apply a leech. He
may sell them to persons, but only a
doctor ls allowed to apply it. One well-
known druggist says that he onco applied a leech to an abrasion on a man's
forehead, because a doctor could not
be got as tha hour was late. "After
the leech had gorged Itself and rolled
off tho mark left by the leech bled so
profusely that It took me over four
hours to stop It; and then the man's
face was ten times worse with the
acids I had to use."
Some druggists state that the appll-
cation of leeches ls not to be recommended; the cure ls almost aa bad as
tho disease. Tho leech has three small,
sharp, semi-circular teeth that radlatt
from a centre. They cut deep, and always leave a scar of the same shape as
themselves. On the common leech the
mouth where the cutting teeth ara
found ls at the anterior sucking disc.
Just back of this, and on the upper
•ide, ara ten small black dpots that
serve as eyes. The usual quantity of
blood drawn by an average leech averages from one drachm to half an
ounce. It ls digested very slowly, and
after 'being gorged In this manner, the
leech lies for several days before lt regains Its nprrpal size .and appearance

Editor "The Adovocate":
If'not taking too much of a privilege
on the editor's space, I should like to
reply to the question in last week's'
"Is it beneficial to listen to a solo
when tlio words of a Bong cannot be
distinguished? "
Good mnsic is inspiring, with or
without words, but half of tl.e real
music lies iu the words, nud how much
more beneficial and' inspiring is a solo
when thesiuger's enunciation is perfect''
A singer should devote as niucli
attention to enunciation as to voice production. A singor muBt possess au exceptionally good voice if the words of
the song cau not be distinguished, before the solo is beneficial.
How much more pleasing and' bene
floial'thou is a singer when both voice
and enunciation are good?

Tho answer to the above question lies
to a great extent with the listuer. If
tho benefit to be derivod is entirely from
the sentiment of the soug, then there
would bo but littlo benefit unless the
words were distinctly and nudibl -spoken.
Bdt if the person who renders the solo
possesses • a; sweet and musical voice,
no doubt a. fiver of music would derive
some benefit by listening.

House of Lords at Last Consents to Bill
to Legalize Marriage With a  Deceased Wife's Sister.
After an opposition extended through
many years to the principle Involved,
the British House ot Lords has consented to the passage of the bill legalizing marriage with a deceased wife's
sister In the British possessions. It
ls not likely that the House of Commons will throw out the measure, and
as a result such marriages where legal
in the colonies will be valid In Great
Britain. Lord Strathcona has been the
chief advocate of the bill, and the arguments used In its favor were thos..
with which he must have been familiar
twenty years ago In the Dominion Parliament.
A Law of Henry VIII.
A history of the subject dates back
to the reign of Henry VIII., who was
peculiarly qualified as an authority on
all subjects relating <to marriage and
who forbade a man to marry the sister of his deceased wife. The law then
passed was later construed to mean
that such a marriage might be Invalidated; but In 1835 such a union was
made not only voidable, but void in
fact. This was Lord Lyndhurst's Act,
under whioh previous marriages of the
kind were declared legal, tout later ones
Illegal. At the time, the understanding
was that the prohibition should be removed at the next session of Parliament. Nevertheless expectations ln
this respect were noU realized, and
time after time the Commons or
Lords refused to Interfere.
Introduced  by  Prince of Wales.
In 1841 Lord T.horncliffe endeavored
to have the Lords repeal the act, and
the next year the Commons defeated a
. similar bill 'by a narrow margin. In
1847 a Royal Commission was appointed to examine the marriage laws, and
the result was another bill, Introduced
in the Commons in 1849 by Mr. Stuart
Wortley. Tills bill passed Its second
reading, but did not reaoh Its final
stages. Next year lt was passed. In
1851 Lord St. Germans Introduced the
bill ln the Lords, but It was again defeated. In 1855 the Commons again
assented to the bill, but the Lords remained obdurate. Since then the measure has been pressed, ln varied form,
a score of times, 'but always the Lords
has thrown Jt out. Sometimes, too,
the Commons dissented, but usually
approved. There was no change ln the
Lords, even In 1879, when King Edward,
then Prince of Wales, introduced the
'bill. On that historic occasion the vote
was 101 against to 81.
Ths Law In Canada.
Until 1882 the law In Canada was as
tho law In England previous to the Act
ot 1835, but In 1880 Mr. Desire Glrouard
(now Mr. Justice, and father of Sir
Percy Glrouard) introduced a measure
to make marriage legal with the deceased wife's sister. It was seconded by.
Mr. Cameron, of North Victoria and,
eloquently argued by them both. The
opposition to the measure was based
primarily on Scriptural grounds, It being held that Leviticus xviil, 18, and
xx, 21, forbade the marriage. The very
best authority, however, declared the
Interpretation put upon these passages
to be far fetched and unreasonable. Tho
fact that the Church of England prayer book forbade the marriage was held
to be due to an imperfect translation
from the original Hebrew. It was
shown that the Jews never construed
the verses to prohibit the marriages.
In short, the case was made conclusive
on the grounds of Scriptural interpretation.
Objections Raised/
The objections founded on social
grounds appear to have 'been more
formidable If less concrete. Nobody
was alble to arise and plainly state
them, but there were many vague and
mournful allusions to the deplorable
social conditions that would result ln
families where a man's sister-in-law
was domiciled and his wife living.
After all, the chief difficulty was found
ln the fact that the Roman Catholic
Church disapproved of the marriages,
and that the Church of England forbade them. The House hesitated to
take a step that might be construed as
an affront to either of these bodies,
Difficulty was also encountered In the
marriage laws of Nova Scotia which
existed by an Imperial Act, and which
lt was not ln the power of the Dominion Government to amend. Finally,
after great tribulation, the bill worked
its way through the House and Into the
statutes of the country in 1882. That
there has been any harm done as a result there ls no evidence to show. With
the passage of the law ln Great Britain, the principle that marriage with a
deceased's wife sister ls right will be
recognized In England as regards such
unions effected ln British possessions
which have -emoved the prohibition.
itio *Ven. Arcnaeacon Colley, whe
was nearly buried alive |n his Infancy,
stated that he had prepared plans
whereby part of his house at Stockton,
near Rugby, was to 'be turned Into a
"parish parlor," where poor people, living In one or two rooms with a large
family, could bring their dead and pay
them loving attention. The rooms would
be pleasantly furnished and filled w'th
flowers, and tha bodies could remain
there until signs of decomposition had
set in.

Mignonette and Rosea, For Instance,
WIU Not Mix.
The florist frowned as he took up an
order for a table decoration. "Tbat
will never do," he muttered. After
calling up the customer and suggesting a change, he told bis new clerk a
few things.
.."You must never take an order that
calls for a mixture of mignonette and
roses," he said. "A centerpiece of
those two flowers wouldn't last half
through the luncheon. They simply
wilt one another. I don't know why,
but they can't get along together.
"It ls true of many flowers. I'ansles,
for Instance, last twice as long If they
hre not combined with any other flower, and the same may be said of violets. Jonquils and daffodils, ou the
other hand, seem to get a new lease
of life if you combine considerable
green with them. Carnations will go
all to pieces if you combine thein with
roses, although tbe roses do not seem
to be affected.
"It Is more striking ln combluations
of green with flowers. If you try to
use au entirely different type of foliage from what the flower ls used to,
it won't last so long. So I never put
feathery foliage with lilies of the valley, for you know Its natural foliage
ls a thick leaf. I never use thick leaves
with carnations, for their foliage is of
the feathery type. It isn't as though
the flowers fought, but they seem to
grieve at being misunderstood."
Some  of the Things  That  Are  Predicted For the Future*
"The bath of tbe next century," says
T. Baron Russell In his book "A Hundred Years Hence," "will lave the
body speedily with oxygenated water
delivered with ii force that will render
rubbing unnecessary, and beside lt will
stand the drying cupboard, lined with
some quickly moving arrangement of
soft brushes and fed with a highly desiccated air, from wblch almost ln a
moment the bather will emerge dried
and with a skin gently stimulated and
perhaps electrified to clothe himself
quickly and pass down tbe lift to his
breakfast, which he will eat to the accompaniment of a summary of the
morning's news read out for the benefit of the family or whispered Into his
ears by a talking machine."
Dishwashing will be easy ln that
day. Dirty plates and dishes, for example, "will be simply dropped one by
one Into an automatic receptacle, swill
ed clean by water delivered with force
and charged with nascent oxygen, dried
by electric heat and polished by electric force, being finally oxygen bathed
as a superfluous act of sanitary cleanliness before being sent to table again.
And all that has come off the plates will
drop through tbe scullery floor Into the
destructor beneath to be oxygenated
and made away with."
There will be many other Improvements. Trains will gather speed more
rapidly; moving platforms will do away
with the need of stopping trains at every station. People will have more accidents to avoid, snd they will be cleverer ln avoiding them. On small flying machines they will visit mountain
tops on Saturday afternoons "for (nonalcoholic) picnics." Actors will only
play once ln one part, for their performances will be reproduced by a perfected kiuetoscope and phonograph.
Startling Figures Supplied by English
Doctor on Ticklish Subject.
Some very disconcerting figures were
supplied to the meeting of the London
Society for tho Prevention of Premature Burial at Bloomsbury town hall
by Dr. Hadwen, of Gloucester, as arguments ln favor of speedy legislation ln
burial reform. The f illowlng cases, ho
said, had been certified by medioal men:
Persons buried alive, 149.
Narrow escapes from burial alive,
Dissected alive, 10.
Narrow escupes from dissection
alive, 3.
Embalmed alive, 2.
Cremated alive, 1.
He urged that there should be waiting mortuaries, as ln Munich and other German towns, where bodies could
remain under strict sanitary conditions
until the first signs of putrefaction—
the aiii'j reliable slgq of death.   - .-
A -nre For Cock Robin.
Two coins clinked together give so
good an Imitation of the robin's metallic note that this device has long been
employed in England  to  attract the
welcome "harbinger of spring."   Formerly male robins were snared by the
clinking of two copper pennies near a
dummy bird. Tbe dummy was perched
on a twig smeared with bird lime, and
cock robin, attracted by the sound and
suspecting a rival, flew at him with
blood ln his eye. This ls ln violation of
the bird laws in the United States, and
no one who lives where robins make
their borne ln confidence is likely to j
give the odd  trick so unpleasant a ,
finale.   The clinking coppers serve ft |
much  more agreeable purpose as  a r
means of rendering cock robin sociable.

Result   of   the   Experiments   of   tha
Monttfolfler Brothers.
Proceeding ou tlie principle that heated air expands ami so becomes lighter,
bulk for bulk, than air at the ordinary
temperature, the brothers Stephen and
Joseph Montgollior tilled a paper bag
wltb heated air, which rose to the ceiling of the room. This preliminary success was rapidly followed up, and they
gradually Increased the size of the balloons experimented with until they
were so satisfied with their progress
that In 1783 they gave a public exhibition, sending up a linen b.lloon 105 feet
In circumference, which was inflated
over a fire supplied with small bundles
of chopped straw. The balloon succeeded beyond their utmost expectation, and
after rising to a height of over 6,000
feet it descended ten miuutes after in
a field a mile and a half away. The
next balloon carried a car. In which
were a sheep, a cock and a duck.
The success of this furtber experiment Induced M. Pllatre de Rozler and
the Marquis d'Arlaudes to risk tbelr
lives by making the if -st ascent In the
new and wonderful uachlne. Their
balloon, which was lorty-flve feet ln
diameter and seventy-five feet high and
was Inflated with hot air, passed over
Paris to the great astonishment of the
people, attaining an altitude of half a
mile. Ballast was then for the flrst
time employed in regulating tbe ascending power of the balloon. The first
venture was followed by others, and
De Rozler, the first to ascend, was also
the flrst to meet his death In this manner, having been killed, with a companion, by the burning ef his balloon
near Boulogne.   .

■ —yes. TMCt'S why'they are so happy. *t is very old-fashioned to be in
love at all; it is hopelessly old-
fashioned to be in love with your
husband or. your wife; and, if you are
so unfortunate as to be so, it is, so
I am told, criminally old-fashioned
to own up to it. I, myself, prefer
the old fashion to the new; but, then,
I'm eccentric—so I 'hear. Nina!
Come off that grass; it's damp.
Vane, bring her in at once."

"And will drink himself to death
or get killed in a drunken row in the
slums of Paris or Vienna," Letchford had suggested.
"He must be found," Vane had
said, quietly. "He must be found
and—provided  for."
"We'll put Tressider onto him,"
was Sutcombe's idea. "He will know
better how to track him down than
you  can."
Vane tried to get his unhappy cousin out of his mind, and, as the
supper progressed, hud nearly, in
some measure, succeeded, when Sutcombe's man came to his master's
side and said something in a low
voice. With a murmur of apology
Sutcombe rose and left the room,
and presently he returned and quietly beckoned to Vane. Vane went out
to him, and Sutcombe shut the door
und drew bitn towards the library
"I'm afraid something's amiss,
Lesborough," he said. "Poor old
Chandos Orme is in there. He tells a
rambling, incoherent story. He
wants to see you, and, hearing you
were here, has come on after you."
They entered the library. Sir Chandos was seated at tbe table, a glass
that had contained brandy, which
Sutcombe had given him, already
empty. He rose and held out a shaking hand to Vane.
"How d'ye do, Vane?" he stammered, uncertainly. "Thought I
should find you here. I say, yon—you
—know—" Ho; paused to shuttle his
false teeth into place. "What's the
meanin' of all this? I—I don't understand  it,  don't you know!"
"All what, Sir Chandos?" said
Vane, gravely. "Is anything the
"Anything the matter? Dash it all,
you ought to be able to answer
that question! Sutcombe, for God's
sake, give me another drink! I'm—
I'm so upset and shaky that I can
scarcely know what I'm sayin' or
doin'l Thanks! a little more. I—I like
it strong. No—no water. Water's no
good;  it's the brandy I want!"
They watched him as he drank tho
neat spirit—he reminded Vane of Julian!—spilling some of it on his
quivering chin and down his shirt-
front; then he turned to Vane and,
in a somewhat firmer voice, repeated
his question:
"What's it mean?" ho demanded.
"Must say it's a deuced queer kind
of business; not at all the kind ol
conduct belittin' a gentleman, to say
nothing ot—personal friend, and a
fellow   one  has   trusted—"
"Tell me at once what you mean,
Sir Chandos,"  said Vane.
"I'm talking about Judith; you
know that well enough," retorted
Sir   Chandos.
"About Judith?" Vane's heart began to sink with a dark presentiment. "What about her?"
"Where is she? What have you done
with her?" asked tho old man, in a
peevish tone.
"I!" Vane started. "I can't tell.
I've not seen Judith since—for many
"Oh, that's all tommy-rot, you
know!" snapped Sir Chandos, with
Impatient irritability. "That dog
won't titfht.  You  sent for her—"
"I!" said Vane. 'No, no; you're
"No, I'm not!" snarled the old
man, fiercely. "It's no good your
standing there lying about it. I've—
I've got the proof in my possession.
You sent for her; you know where
sho is! And I shay itsh not the
straight thing between gentlemen,
between you and me, who ought to
be  father-in-law—son-in-law—"
Hu looked helplessly round and
began to feel for the empty glass.
Vane  caught  his  arm. .
"For God's sake, try to explain
what you mean!" he said, earnestly.
"You say that Judith is—missing.
When—where—how did she go?"
';Oh, drop it, Lesborough! You've
got the gel, right enough. If you
mean well by her, if you want to
marry hor, why not say so—why not
do the whole thing in an open and
proper manner? Is there any more
binuily in that decanter, Sutcombe?"
Vane still held him by the arm.
"Presently, presentlyl" be said,
anxiously. "sir Chandos, on my
honor, t do not know where your
daughter  is—"
Sir Chandos drew himself up with
the shadow of his old dignity.
"That's a lie!" he said. "And this
proves it!"
As he spoke he fumbled in the pocket of his dress-coat and drew out a
telegram and extended it with a
shaking hand; Vane seized the telegram and read it—aloud.
"I am alive and well," it ran.
"Forget and forgive the past! I
want you Come to me at 24 Pon-
son Street, Chelsea, this afternoon,
five o'clock. Vane."
He stared at the words in silence,
and uncomprehe'ndingly, for a moment; then he uttered a cry and drew
Sutcombe out of the room, closing
tho door after  ..hnm.
—my liodT" he said, ln a whisper.
'•I did not send this! Don't you see
who did! He asked for a telegram
form, wrote this message, and must
have sent it frem the station. We
must go at once—at once! Send
Letchford in to keep the poor old
man quiet till we return! Come!
There's not a moment to lose! Five
o'clock! Hours ago! Time for—for
anything to happen!  The worst!"
In five minutes, or less, they were
ln a cab and on their way They
reached the house—Vane recognized
lt at a glance—and found it apparently empty. The heavy door at
which they knocked remained closed
to them.
Vane hailed a policeman. "There
Is nothing else for it!" he said. In a
few words he explained his fears, and
the policeman, climbed to the lower
window, forced an entrance. He opened the door to Vane and Sutcombe,
and, by the light of his lantern, they
rushed up the stairs. As they did so
a strong odor of chemicals met
Vane groaned.   He knew that odor!
"There's a fire Bouiewhere, sir!"
said the policeman. "Curious kind
of a smell; quite suffocating! Seems
tn come from this room. Door's
I "Force it, force it I" cried Vane,
They set their backs to It, and
presently the lock gave and they almost fell in. The lantern was raised
and its light flashed round the
sombre room, in which Vane had
eaten his first meal with Julian
Shore. The room • was so full of the
pungent smoke, the horrible mist,
that for a time they could not discern anything; then, as some of the
fumes escaped by the open door, they
saw two figures. One was that of ft
woman, lying back in one of the antique chairs. The form was motionless, tho face white, the eyes wide
open and staring. At her feet was
stretched nut the figure of a man, hie
face white as hers, his eyes staring
upward at the face of the woman
whom he had loved  and—slain!
They bent over these two awful objects In silent horror, thon the policeman shook his head.
"Lady's dead, gentlemen," he
The man lying at her feet was
dead also, his fingers closed in a
steel-like grip on her skirt.
Vane staggered to the door of tho
laboratory. A small flamo was still
flickering in ths spirit furnace, and
tho deadly fumes were still issuing
feebly from the last dregs of the infernal compound in the iron crucible.
Sick and faint, half choking—as he
had choked in tho Wizard's Room!—
Vane knocked tho pot from its placo
and, staggering to the window, broke
some panes of glass. Then he sprang
back to the two motionless figures in
the vain hope that tho policeman
might be deceived.
"No uso, sir," he said, with a
shake of the head. "They're both
dead—dead as they can be. Awful
kind o' death, too! An accident, I
suppose, in the other room."
"Yes, yes!" Vane got out, hoarsely, "a—1 know the man—the lady.
It is an accident while experimenting
with chemicals—you can see tbem
The policeman nodded, and, going
to the window, blew his whistle.
"I must have some help, gentlemen.

Silver Bathtuha.
At the czar's palace of Tsarskoe-Selo
the nurseries provided for tbe care of
children consist of eleven rooms. One
feature Is described by Miss Egar, the
children's governess, as follows: "In
the bathroom ls a stationary bath of
solid silver, used for the bigger children. There is a small silver bath for
the use of whatever baby reigns. Each
cbild's name ls engraved upon lt, so it
forms a historical record. It was apparently bought for Nicholas I. and
bears his name and those of his fam
Ily. We also find the names of Alexander II. and of Marie, afterward
Duchess of Edinburgh. Tbe last name
added was that of Alexis, the little
baby who was born ln August, 1904."
The friends of Lady Lesborough—
and how numerous they are!—are
never tired of dilating upon the
romance nf her life. And yet none of
them, excepting the Letchfords and
the Sutcombcs, those friends of
friends, whose lips ara closed, know
the whole of the story of her life.
Few, for instance, are aware that
Lord and Lady Lesborough, beforo
they came to live at tho Court, were
re-married quietly in the quietest of
country churches; few know the real
story of Julian Shore's crime, and
the tragedy at the gloomy house in
Chelsea, And, though they know
that the Lesboroughs and Sutcombes
draw vast wealth from the Great
Fairy Isle Gold Company, they do
not know the real reason why the
earl and countess nearly every
years spend some weeks in
the island from whence the
gold comes, or that those weeks
are perhaps the happiest of their
happy lives.
It was Lady Fanworthy who summed up the case ot Vane and Nina so
"You see," she said to Vivienne
ono evening, when they wero seated
on tho terrace at Lesborough, and
both the ladies' eyes wero half absently watching the earl and countess as they strolled to and fro
across the lawn, talking together,
liko sweethearts, "you see, they are
so old-fashioned."
"Old-fashioned?" echoed Vivicnne,

The Drama in Iceland.
In its march to the pole the drama
has reached Iceland. It is a recent
graft upon the Intellectual life of the
Island, according to the London Globe.
The first theater was founded so recently as 1897, and there is only one in
tbe lsland-at Reikjartk-but It has
taken firm root The dramatic season
opens in October and closes at tbe end
of April, when the good folk go fishing,
and the theater Is open about three
evenings ft week. Bjornson and Ibsen
are mostly drawn upon, but during the
last season one or two native poet*
have recited their own compositions,
which promise well. The municipality
and the diet each subsidize the theater to the extent of SOO crowns.
Travels 10,000 Miles Without a Ticket
to See Canada.
Stanley Condor, a 12-year-old boy, of
Beacombe, was taken before the stipendiary magistrate at Liverpool on the
21st May of this year, charged with
traveling across the Atlantic without a
ticket. His entire journey as a stowaway and train-jumper covered quite
10,000 miles.
This ls the climax of a remarkable
series of free Journeys accomplished by
the lad during the last twelve mont'hs.
His flrst ride of this kind was under
the guard's van of an express '.rain
running to Derby. On eleven other
occasions he has run away from home
and traveled free to Preston, Manchester and Bradford. He ls said to 'hie a
bright scholsr, and Is a quiet, unimpressive looking lad.
Two months ago his parents were
quietly conferring with the authorities
about him. He was not vicious, but
something had to be done to correct Ws
roaming habit. It was decided to apprentice him to a Canadian farmer.
Stanley, unaware of this plan, decided
to see Canada for himself.
Ha stowed himself on a Dominion
liner, where he was found when the
vessel was two days at sea, tout, on arrival at Halifax, he gave the authorities
the slip, and by a series of train-jumping exploits went as far west as Winnipeg, some 1,800 miles Inland.
There he turned about and started
homeward, aiming first for New York.
Before leaving Winnipeg ihe earned two
dollars, with which he bought food.
He caught many rides on trains, but
had to walk 150 miles of the distance.
When he arrived at New York the
boy was worn out, and his clothes
were torn and ragged. A policeman who
found him roaming at night, took nim
to the sta.lon, where he was provided
with spare clothes and food.
The next day, when he was supposed
to be sleeping, the young adventurer
escaped from the room In which he had
been detained, and made his way to
the**quay. During the night he stole ou
board a White Star liner, and conceal,
ed himself until the vessel was out at
sea, when he walked Into the forecastle
to  the amazement of tha crew.
He was taken from the vessel to tha
Liverpool police station. The magistrate
remanded him to I'he workhouse for
seven days, and In the meantime the
momentous question, what is to toe done
with him, will be considered. In tha
prisoners' box he looked worn, and said
lf they would let him off he would try
not to go traveling any more.
His parents wera ln tears, and the
greeting between them and their wayward child .was pathe.vlc.

, Hot or cold water is excellent as an
application for inflammation, congestions or abrasions, but how many peo-
1 pie know which to apply in particular
cases while awaiting the arrival of
medical relief? Not many, and the mistakes made ln some instances are ludicrous.
j Take the barber, for example, wbo
bas cut his patron's face. He generally
washes the face with a towel soaked
ln warm water, often pressing it right
into the Injury, and then wonders why
the blood flows from th'e cut so freely.
In ninety-nine cases out of a hundred
If he had used cold water, and the
colder the better, the blood would
have ceased to flow from the Injury altogether, as the cold would have a tendency to contract the openings In the
torn blood vessels. In all cases of sucb
cuts or abrasions very cold water will
at least reduce the amount of bleeding

singularly enough, boiling water will

Where the eye is Inflamed or smarts,

tbe water used should be gradually

Tired eyes will invariably be rejuvenated by adopting this method of treatment and many headaches resulting
from such a condition may thereby be

Mistress and Maid.
They had come to the parting of the

could with safety Indulge In a few
trenchant and apposite remarks.
. "And now you i re going, Jane," she
eald, "allow me tn say that I trust you
will leave me In orthodox style—I mean
ln a proper conveyance. You remember
when your mother helped you in with
your box, which was brought on a
wheelbarrow. I wouldn't mention lt, but
I am afraid some of our friends mtght
see you."
"Yes," said Jane serenely, 'Ithat win

I just caught sight of them waiting a
little down the street."

Don't Overwork It and Give It a Heat
Once In  Awhile.
A man of common sense and a doctor at that said: "The liver is misunderstood and underestimated In its
functions. If it can be kept clean and
active there ls no reason why we
should ever be 111 a day, and we should
live to be 150 or 200 years old. It is not
necessary to rip this organ all to pieces
with ten grains of calomel to get It
stirred up. Tbe best thing to do ls to
shut off your food supply for two or
three days, drop your whisky and
claret your tea and coffee, and give
your liver a chance to rest. Tbls should
be done once a month."
It is well known, of course, that In
olden times the liver was supposed to
be the seat of the affections. Friends
wben they met in the morning did not
salute each other with "How's your
health?" but with "How's your liver?"
Men take horseback exercise principally for their livers. A good shaking up
every morning drives away tbe elrrho-
ticblllary encroachment. It ls an error
to assume that whisky alone produces
cirrhosis. Overfeeding Is more often
the cause. If the digestive organs
would organize a union and work only
eight hours a day all of us would be
healthy and long lived. The trouble I*
we require the liver, stomach, bowels,
beatt, brain, muscles, nerves, kidneys,
spleen, etc., to work all the time end
overtime. Wrong. Give tktm A rest
Meeting of Extremes.
The Irlshiran evidently had been
drinking a little. He climbed into ons
of the two bootblack chairs ln front
of the corner Ibulldlng, and, after settling himself comfortably, glanced at
his next chair neighbor. Then he laughed. Hia neighbor, who was a fat, pompous negro, about fifty years old, dressed
ln clerical trapb, frowned.
"Well, Smoky," said the Irishman. Ignoring the negro's look of disapproval,
"this surely Is a queer countree. Here
I am, and there you are. It's not so
long since I was a bog trotter, and 1
■vppose you wera a slave. And here we

The Chance That Takes Plnee When
Ther Knter the  Wnter.
The appearance of the keeper of the
penguins at the zoo, with bis pall of
live gudgeon, Is the signal for sudden
and Intense excitement ln tbe cages.
The penguins wave their little flippers
and waddle to the door, whence they
peer eagerly down the wooden steps
leading to the pool. The cormorant
croaks and sways from side to side,
and the darters poise their snaky heads
and spread their batlike wings. At the
water's edge the penguins do not
launch themselves upon the surface
like other water fowl, but Instantly
plunge beneath.
Once below water an astounding
change takes place. Tbe slow, ungainly bird ls transferred Into a swift and
brilliant creature, beaded with globules
of quicksilver, where tbe air clings to
the close feathers, and flying through
the clear and waveless depths wltb arrowy speed and powers of turning far
greater than In auy known form of
aerial flight. The rapid and steady
strokes of the wings are exactly similar to those of the air birds, while Its
feet float straight out level with tbe
body, unused for propulsion or even as
rudders and as little needed in Its progress as those of a wild duck when on
the wing.
The twists and turns necessary to
follow the active little fish are made
wholly by the strokes of one wing and
the cessation of movement In the other,
and the fish are chased, caught and
swallowed without the slightest relaxation of speed In a submarine flight
which Is quite as rapid as tbat of most
birds which take their prey in midair.
In less than two minutes some thirty
gudgeon are caught and swallowed below water, the only appearance of the
birds on the surface being made by one
or two bounds from the depths, when
the head and shoulders leap above the
surface for a second and then disappear.
Any attempt to remain on the surface leads to ludicrous splashing and
confusion, for the submarine bird cannot float It can only fly below the
surface. Immediately the meal Is finished both peuguins scramble out of
the water and shuttle with round backs
and drooping wings back to their cage
to dry and digest—London Spectator.

British Army Red Tape.
A letter of instruction said to have
been sent to a British army officer, wbo
reported that Private Blank had lost
his greatcoat, runs as follows: "The
calculation of the value of a lost greatcoat should be made by deducting the
value wben worn out from the value
when new, as given In article 75, 1865,
clothing warrant, dividing the remainder by tbe number of months the
garment should wear, multiplying tbe
quoltant by the number of months tbe
garment bas actually been worn and
subtracting the - sum thus obtained
from the total value of the new greatcoat.   The balance Is the amount that
should be charged."
