"Oh, trill you?" she said. How

"Oh; don't mind thut!" said the unselfish Sutcombe. "I've always got

"Yes, ws!" Vivienno nil in again.

Sutcombe glanced at Nina, wondering how she would lake this suggestion; but Nina, having no talss
pride, and, consequently, net being
ashamed of her and Polly's humble
diggings, accepted at once.
"That's ull right," said Sutcombe;
the phi-use—it was Vane Mannering's
—made Nina's heart leap. "Then I'll

don't hesitate."
"Sho is tou beautiful nnd lovable
for words," she said. "If I were a
man, I could not help falling in love
with her. But—"
"But me no buts."
"But there is something about her.
There is—nn aloofness; I don't know
how to describe it. Sutcombe, that
girl has a history."
"Most of us havo," he said with a
"I know. But hers is not a common or garden one. She has passed
through some great trouble. I'm
sure of it. We women are quick at
reading other women—"
"Too quick," he said, half impatiently. "What trouble, beyond that
which falls to the common lot, can
she havo had? She may have lost

"No, it is not thut," she said,
thoughtfully. "That would not

When Nina got home sho gave Polly an account of tho adventure and
the coincidence, nnd Polly nodded in
open-eyed acquiescence and approval,
"The very thing, dear!" she said.
"Lor'l What luck you have! Lord
Sutcombe can do what he likes at
the Momus. Oh, we're in luck! And
isn't he handsome?"
"Is ho? I didn't notice," said
Nina, absently. She was at thut
moment thinking of her lust net, and
when your playwright is thinking of
that, all the rest of the world
doesn't count.
Vivicnne called for her as arranged, and they drovo to Evorsleigh
Court. Sutcombc did not come in till
tea was nearly over, und—be bad
schooled himself—greeted Nina in
quite a casual way. She read the
play, as far as it hnd gone; rend it
at lirst in a faltering, apologetic
manner, but, presently, warming to
her work and forgetting herself, read
it witb spirit and expression. Sutcombe, with his eyes upon her profile, listened intently, and now and
again suggested some alteration in
tho details. Nina listened with the
eager humility of the author, and
lotted thom down in her note-book.
Then Sutcombe disappeared ana ici.
the two girls to tnlk over the dross-
OS, a subject which kept tbem so
fully employed that Nina wus persuaded to stay to dinner.
Nina was one of those women who
possess the power of influencing the
members of her own sex as well us
men, oIhI Vivienne, already predisposed, fell a victim to tliis unconscious influence. In a word, Ludy
Vivienne wus not huppy unless Nina
spent some portion of thb twenty-
four hours at the flat. And if Siit-
cotnbo wus not there nil the time, ho
spi'iit many hours in Nina's society.
They were the hours of his life.
At lust tho play wus finished and
handed to Air.   Harcourt,    "M.v Lilly
Pride" had nearly run its courso, nnd
ho was eager to try the new comedy,
and, lf it went woll in London, ho
Intended running two, or even mole,
companies In the provinces. He was
so satislied with the play that he
mounted it with more thun the usual
But before the eventful night had
arrived, I_ady Vivienne had shown
signs of tho wear und tear of tho
London air. The doctor on whoso
skill she and Sutcombe depended hud
said  that she should  winter abroad.
"Vou used to have a yacht," ho
said. "Tuke her for a cruise, a long
cruiso. Anywhere out of tho Kngiish
east winds. I fear thom moro than
anything else for her."
Sutcombo nodded; then frowned.
"Givo mo to tho sixth of next
month," he snid.
It was tho date of the production
of tho new pluy, about which ho
was anxious, probably more anxious
than Nina herself. Whon ho told
Vivienno that thoy would have to go
abroad, she at once said:
"Let us persuade Miss Wood to go
with us."
Nina received the BM'gg6stion as if
it were a Jest.
"Perhaps my poor play will bo a
failure," sho said, "und I shall havo
to work for niy living in sonic otlier
way. Oh, it is quite impossible for
me to go!"
Tho eventful night arrived, and
Nina, in her old place in the corner
of the upiwr circle, went through the
usual agony; but there wus really no
cause for apprehension, for the end
of the first act caught the audience,
nnd they were tightly held during tho
remainder of tho play.   It was an un
qualified success, the Kind oi success
ubout which there can be no possibility of doubt. The house was
churged with enthusiasm, and it was
for some time in vain that Mr. Harcourt, coming forward, with hia
hand upon his heart and a smile
from ear to ear, to inform the houso
thut Herbert Wood was not present,
could muke himself heard. The house
seemed very disappointed, but it was
the only disappointment of tho evening, lt is nice to bo ablo to record
tho fact that "the promising young
actress," Miss Tolly Bainford, scored
vory heavily in a part peculiarly woll
suited to her by no means limited
capacity. Sutcombe, flushed with
excitement, went round to tho upper
circle in search of Nina, who, her
identity little suspected by the audience, wus leaning back with her
hands tightly clasped in hor lap,
and a look of relief and thanksgiving
ou hor ruther pale face.
"I congratulate you!" ho whispered. "Let me take you round to our
box. If you would help Vivienne
down, I will go round and bring Miss
Bainford. Y'es," ho added with a
smile, in response to Nina's look of
surprise, "Vivienne admires Miss
Bainford very much, and is anxious
to know her. It is quite a concession on her part, isn't it? But prejudice always melts away in the sunshine of common sense."
It was a very delightful little party
at tho flat, and Sutcombe proposed
Nina's health, and insisted upon
them filling their glasses as if they
were at a city public dinner, and all
Nina could say in response was,
"Thank you very much!" But her
eyes, not undinnned with tears, were
more eloquent.
Sutcombe lit his cigar aftor supper, and, on his way to the cigar
cabinet, took up some letters which
were lying on the table. Ho opened
them quite mechanically and absent-
mindedly; for he was all aglow with
love and admiration for Nina, and
ho was asking himself whether he
dared venture to tell her that she
held the happiness of his life in hor
hands. He had been so careful to
conceal his love, ho had set so stern
a watch on lips and eyes, that he
knew Nina had no suspicion that ho
had lost his heart to her. Should he
tell her to-night? He asked himself
the question with an anxious dread,
for he know that sho would not give
herself to any man unless she really
loved hiin, and the fact that he was
of higher rank than herself would
not influence her.
His thoughts were running in this
and similar directions, when something in the letter he was mechanically reading caught his attention.
Tho blood roso to his face, then left
it very palo, and he stood, with his
bnck turned to tho others, staling at
the letter as if he could not grasp its
sense. Then he put it in his pocket,
wont back to his place at the table
and tried to uppcar as if nothing
were the matter.
But Vivienne's eyes were quick to
notice his affectation of case and
gaiety, and when ho had come back
from seeing the girls home, she suid
to him quite quietly:
•   "What is it,  Sutcombe?"
"We arc nearly ruined," be said as
quietly as she lierself bad spoken.
"Partridge, the-trustee, hus broken
and bolted. He has made away with
everything, or nearly everything, you
and   I  possess."
"Whut will -you do. Sutcombe?"
she as!.i'd, nfter. a pause.
"llinl knows!" be snid, with n
note of despair in his voice; for how
could he now speak to Decline?
They sat up for hours; but all tho
talking in the world could not lessen ihc disaster. They had not been
rich, in tiie present acceptation o'
lin- word, hut their joint income had
been just sulflciont for thom, and
they knew bow much the "little less '
meant. Fortunately, some of Vivien*
ae's money was invoslSU In her own
name, and liud tlioivi'oro escaped the
clutches of Air. Partridge
"There is that land in Australia,
Sutcombe," she said. "Why not go

We find that tlie acrostic Is the most
ancient form of puzzling mankind.
Acrostic ls Greek for a number of
verses the flrst letters of which form
a word, sometimes a name aud sometimes a sentence. The final letter may
form a word, or, as Addison tells us,
the letters will even run down the center of the verses as a seam. The Hebrew poets often made their verses run
over the entire nlphabet. Twelve of the
psalms are written on this plan, tlie
most notable being the One Hundred
and Nineteenth. This has twenty-two divisions, or stanzas, corresponding to the
twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Each stanza Is formed of eight
couplets, and the flrst line of each couplet ln ths flrst stanza in the original
Hebrew begins with the letter aleph,
the second commences with beth, ths
third with glmel, and so on through fhe
alphabet. The English divisions of the
psalms are called after the Hebrew letter that began ths couplets. It was
also customary to compose verses on
sacred subjects after the fashion of Hebrew acrostics. This was done with a
view to aid memory, and such pieces
were called abcedarlan hymns.
The riddle Is also of ancient origin.
The Proverbs of the Bible, or sayings
attributed to Solomon, are often ln the
form of riddles. Was It not the queen
of Sheba who proposed riddles to Solomon? The Koran, the scriptural book
of the Mohammedans, also contains riddles, as do some books now ln existence, written in Arabic and Persian.
The ancient Egyptians also propounded riddles, and one of tbe seven wise
men of Greece, who lived in the sixth
century B. C, was celebrated for bis
riddles ln verse. Homer, the Greek
poet, according to a statement In Plutarch, died of vexation nt not being
able to solve a riddle. In the middle
ages riddles were encouraged for
amusement on winter nights In the
baronial ball and also In the monastery.
In later days some of the most brilliant
men of letters contributed to the list of
The anagram, or transposition of the
letters in words or sentences, was
much in vogue in Greece in the olden
times. The Cabalists, or Jewish doctors, thought that the anagram always
pointed out a man's destiny, and lf his
name written backward or transposed
in any way spelled a word with meaning they firmly believed it a revelation.
The flatterers of James I. of England
proved his right to the British monarchy as the descendant of the mythical King Arthur from his name,
Charles James Stuart, which becomes
"claims Arthur's seat." The best anagrams are those which have In the
new order of letters Borne signification
appropriate to that from which they
are formed. When Pilate asked, "Quid
est Veritas?" (What is truth?) he probably had no idea that his question answered itself, but lt did. The transposition made lt, "Est vlr qui adest" (It
is the man who is here). Anagrams
were written as early ns 250 B. O, aud
their name comes from the Greek
words ana (backward) and gramma

The ticket agents In the Boston office
of our road are greatly troubled by
patrons who, when wishing to purchase tickets, lay down a coin and
neither tell where they are going nor

part of the patient agent. One day a
little elderly lady approached the window of the office, placing a largo family umbrella on the slab, and, after
fumbling nervously ln hsr pocketbook,
pulled out a quarter and laid lt down
without a word to the ticket seller.

Parisians have been enable! by the
invention of a hollow bullet to "train"
for duels under the realistic condition
of shooting ut and being shot at by,
a living man instead of practicing at

tire back.
Dr. Deirliers is the inventor, and he
has opened a club called, "The Societe

best "shots" In Paris fired in pairs at
one another one morning last week In
the Jardln de Paris.
Of . 272 shots fired, 202 hits were
recorded. Commandant Ferreus and
Mr. Winans each made full scores, and
in the final round shot each other over
fhe heart. While all wore goggles
and padded blouses and gloves, Mr.
Winans shot in his buttoned frock
coat. The bullet is harmless and cnn
be used several times, but the blow
on the ball of tne thumb of one of the
contestants required surgical treatment.

A Sure and Certain Way to Cure this
Terrible   Torture.
There is just one sure, scientific
cure for sciatica, rheumatism, lumbago, neuralgia, headaches — you must
drive the pain from your blood and
nerves with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Liniments never cure nerve and blood
diseases. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
strike straight at the cause because
they actually make new blood. Through
the blood they conquer the painful
poison, soothe the nerves, loosen the
muscles and banish every ache and
pain. Mr. Thos. J. Etsell, Walkerton,
Ont., says. "When I began using Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills I had been oft
work lor three months. The cords
of my right leg were all drawn up and
1 could only limp along with the aid
of a stick. The pain 1 suffered was
terrible. Only those who have been
afflicted with sciatica can understand
the misery I was in both day and
night. I took six boxes of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills before they helped me, but
after that every day saw an Improvement, and by the time I had used fifteen boxes, every vestige of the pain
had disappeared. .1 have no hesitation
ir. pronouncing Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills the best medicine in the world
for sciatica."
Every dose of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pins makes rich, pure, health-giving
blood. That is why they euro headaches and backaches, indigestion, kidney and liver troublos, anaemia, heart

Cities Are Said to Be Our Biological
"It has been said that the modem
city ls a biological furnace. Men are
constantly drifting to this furnace,"
said Dr. Geo. J, Fisher of New York, In
beginning his address to the Toronto
Canadian Club recently. He then referred to the fact that the census showed how ohlld labor in Canadian factorial was gradually decreasing. From
19,000 children under 16 years employed
ln factories in the Dominion ln 1891,
the number had fallen at last census
to 12,000. This was a good thing, and 11
the same reduction continued child labor would soon cease. He regretted
that ln tha United States child labor
was yet very excessive. He had been
In many countries but never saw men
so robust and vigorous as were Canadians, but the danger ahead was the
great Increase ln sedentary employments. In these days men sat in their
offices, used the telephone and telegraph, and Instead of going out after
the business men now did lt by th a
wires. The result of this was seen In
the Increase in deaths from diabetes
and diseases due to the lack of proper
He desired to ask men of thought to
ponder over the facts revealed by the
census of 1901. The Increase of population since 1891 had been 550,000, but
of these only 50,000 settled dn rural districts and 500,000 ln cities. In the
United States to-day 60 per cent, of the
popqlatlon resided in the cities, and
this was a grave physical danger. He
urged that now was the time to provide playgrounds and parks. In the
United States the people had now to
pay millions fir playgrounds and parks
absolutely issentlal for the health of
cities, whereas these grounds could
have been secured at comparatively
low rates. It was an essential for the
health and welfare of children thai
there should be playgrounds and parks.
A c immisslon of eminent men had
been appointed In Scotland, and after
careful inquiry the commission reported
that the height of a fanner was five
feet nine and a half Inches and weight
173 pounds. In towns the height was
five feet six and a half Inches and
weight 145 pounds. Of the ignorant and
criminal tho height was flvo feet Ave
Inches ond the weight 123 pounds, so
that there was a connection between
physical health and mental and moral
The Canadian census and the returns
relative to deaths showed that last year
9,700 people died of tuberculosis, 8,000
from pneumonia, 1,900 from typhoid
fever, and theso returns showed that
deaths from nervous diseases, diseases
of the digestive organs and other complaints due to the present rush and hurry
in every-day life wero Increasing. As
one well acquainted with the ways of
young men, ho regretted to say that
little heed was paid to health matters.
He referred to race suicide and declared
that certain diseases were real cause of
this decrease ln the birth rate. Women
suffered Innocently, and the time, he
hoped, was near at hand when such diseases would be treated by medical men
and health officers as they treated the
most dangerous Infectious diseases. To
be healthy, to be vigorous, to be buc
cessful required exercise and care, and
men who were so would be better law
yers, better doctors and better clergymen.

First College Building Designed to Be
Centre of Education For th* New
Province — Contentions Interfered
and Provincial College Was Relegated to Corner of the Park—An Initial Mistake—Better Days Dawning,
The great" change that ls being effected in the constitution of the University of Toronto means that that Institution ls coming nearer than has
hitherto been the case to the Ideal of
Its founders. When the university was
projected lt was expected that lt would
occupy the site that lias since been allotted to the Legislative buildings. It
was with a view to the carrying out
of this policy that the first college
building—King's College—was erected
In that part of the park which lies Immediately opposite Grosvenor street,
where the monument to the heroes of
the Northwest now stands.
The First College.
This structure was designed as the
nucleus of the university that was to
be. It was thought that, by gradually
extending It, lt would assume largo
proportions, and command the Queen's
Park avenue, where there would rise
around It other'bulldlngs for educational
purposes. Thus what we know as the
park would become the centre of education for the -new province. The plans
as originally thought out were not di s-
tlned to be carried into execution. The
university became a subject of contention. Tho Interests were divided. Other
Institutions were opened. The provincial college was relegated to a corner
of the park, and there it remained until
the differences of early days had been
settled, or until other views prevailed.
Then the quieting of the old disputes
opened the way to a situation under
which the State-endowed Institution can
Impart knowledge In the subjects that
are not controversial, while the other
Institutions organized for special religious purposes can employ their resources ln the work that ls particular to
An Initial Mistake.
There can be no doubt that the situation which created the long-drawn-
out educational quarrel was the result
of a mistake made ln London. When the
provlnco was founded tho leading men
agreed that a college for the training
of youth ln the higher branches was a
necessity. Governor Simcoe said on this
subject, ln his quaint style, that "a college of a higher class would be eminently useful, and would give a tone of
principle and manners that would bo of
Infinite support to government." It ls
easy to understand what our pioneer
ruler meant by this remark, although
few of us would put the Idea ln this
language. The grant ln 1797 of 600,000
acres of land In support of four grammar schools and one university was
clearly a provision for hlgheT education,
regardless of religious questions. Similarly, the call for a principal for the
contemplated university ln 1799 was
suggestive of non-demonlnatlonallsm.
Governor Slmcoo sent to Scotland for
the head of the proposed institution, and
the offer of the princlpalsbip was given to two Presbyterians—first to the
celebrated Dr. Chalmers, and afterwards
to Mr. John Strachan, who accepted,
and afterwards became the first Bishop
of Toronto.
Delays end Disputes.
When Dr. Strachan reached Canada,
in conformity with his Invitation to become the bead of the new college, the
face of mattfcrs had changed. Governor
Simcoe had left for England, and there
was no university to direct. Under
these circumstances the bishop-to-be
turned to other educational enterprises,
and ultimately took orders ln the
Church of England. In the meantime
the campaign for a university was continued, and was crowned with a measure of success, George IV., In 1827,
gave a charter for King's College, making It, however, an exclusively Church
of England seat of learning. This charter was tho subject of protest on the
part of the Legislature, and tha Imperial authorities undertook to modify
lt; but the changes were not such as
the provlnco as a wholo agreed to. In
the forties tho charter of Georgo IV.
was mado operative. Bishop Strachan
brought tho university Into being, and
helped, on April 23, 1842, at the laying,
by Sir Charles Bugot, of the foundation
stono of the flrst college, on the slto In
Queen's Park already described.
The Secularization Struggle.
When the work of organization under
Church of England auspices was commenced, tho movement for secularization becamo tbo stronger. The Methodist body, for Its part, had conimenct'il
wnrk upon their own university at
Oibnurg, which was chartered In 1836.
and the Presbyterians had begun upon
Queen's, which received its charter In
1841. As these church Institution] en-
Joyi d no Stale subsidy, while King's
had been granted snme 225,000 acres ns
lis shun, of the grunt made forty years
earlier In the Interests of higher education, the fight for secularization became
tho in ro vigorous. In the Legislature
tin, mailer woh taken up, nnd tbe consequence was Uie reincorporation of the
university in 1*149 as a provincial Institution, with no religious control and
no religious touts for the professors.
Tin-re oan bo mile doubt that Bishop
Slrachan had looked upon King's as
tho theological collego for his diocese.
Ills writings, however, show that he
did not wish lt to be exclusive, ln the
senso that It could be resorted to by
none but members of tlie Church of
iKngland. What ho aimed at was Just
such Church control as appertained in
thoso days to Oxford and Cambridge.

Vancouver, B. C, June 30, 1906.
The City Council has passed tbe
by-law for raising iOO.100 for a Public
Market, and it now remains for the
Electors to vote in favor of the by-law
The aldermen from Wnrd V , endeavored to cut out the cold-storage provision
aud reduce the by-law to $58,000, but
fortunately they failed to carry their
point. A cold-storage plant wonld be
necessary to keep produce loft over from
the day's sale or for produce arriving
late, and surely there certainly conld be
regulations euforced so as to prevent
wholesalers from buying the produce
und storing it up iu order to control
prices. Tbe opinion of Alderman
Heaps on tho market question is worthy
t e cons'deratiou of every Elector:
" The City must have one to compete
with New Westminster, and one thut
will draw tho produce from the Bur
rounding districts. If all tho people
sent in could be cared for, then tie
market would be successful, but if the
start were made only iu a small wny,
then there were chances of defeat. The
success of a city depouds ou its stroug
districts surrounding, and the establish
ment of a good market would encourage
settlement and bo a benefit to the
citizens. The revenue would be sufficient
to provide for the interest and sinkiug

Our Musical Society.
The BrasB Baud of the Mt Plea?aut
Musical Society, reo«ntly organized, has
hold a couple of practices this week
with a good turnout of members, and
the progress made is very satisfactory.
Tho instrnmention of the Baud is not
yet complete, moro clarionets and wood
wind-iustrumeuts being required, but
the material available is quite sufficient
to render good music. The instrumentation as it is at present is as follows
two solo, one 1st, two 2d, two 8d
Cornets; oue solo aud three Alto Horns;
1st and 2d Trombones; one Baritone;
solo Euphonium; two Basses; two
Drums and "-raps; one Piccolo; two
Flutes; 1st. 2d end 3d Clarionets. This,
with their Conductor, who seems to bo
a popular Leader with the boys, iB a
moat creditable showing, especially
wheu it is tukeu into corsideratiou the
organization was non-existent threo
wecks'ego There aro two practices a
week, Monday and Wednesday. Owing
to Monday being a holiday, the next
praotice will be hold next Wednesday
eveniug iu tho Oddfellows' Hall, when
the Bandmaster hopes to see a full
turnout of the 25 members ou baud at
8 o'clock prompt. Tho citizens of Mt.
f leusiint hopo to have au opportunity of
hearing the Hand in the near future.
Members should bear in mind that
the success of the Band will depend
npou constant practice and prompt
attendance at same. The cost of music
for a Band is rather au expensive feu
tore, and subscriptions toward making
"Our Baud" a success nro still in order,

Of every three Canadians, one lives
under the Stars and Stripes. This may
seem a startling statement, but it has
the authority nf Earl Grey, who in his
speech at the Pilgrim's banquet in New
York pnt the number of Canadians in
the United States at 2,800,000. The distribution of these two million and more
Canadians is interesting. New England,
of course, is the chief objective points
of Quebec's migration. Massachusetts
ie easily flrst, with 160,000 Frenoh-
Canndians, and New Hampshire, Michigan, Rhode Island and Maine following
in the order given. Massachusetts is
is also the most magnetic State for
English-speaking immigrants, followed
by Michigan, New York, Illinois,
Maine, Minnesota and the Dnkotas.
Evidently the the threo main currents
are from the Maritime Provinces to the
cities of the"_astern States, from Quobec to the great factory towns, such as
Lowell and Fnll River, and to some extent to the abandoned farms of the
Granite State, and from Ontario to the
western prniries, the border cities, snoh
as Buffalo and Detroit, and to New
.fork and Chicago. Boston, it is ofteu
said, has more Canadians than Halifax,
nnd Chicago is popularly credited with
100,000, though 60,000 wouid probably
bo nearer the mark.
