LID ye hear the cock crow? By
the beard of my father, I'd
forgotten you and myself nnd
everything but the story. It's
near morning, nnd I've a weary tongue.
Another log and oue more pipe. Tben,
sir, I'll let you go.   I'm near tie end.
"Let me see. It's a winter day In
New York city after four years. The
streets are crowded. Here are men
and women, but I see only the horses.
You know, sir, how I love them. Well,
here Is a big stable. A tall man has
halted by Its open door and addressed
the manager.
" 'I learn tbat you have a bay mare
witli starred face and a white stocking.' It Is Trove wbo speaks.
" 'Yes. There sbe ls coming yonder.'
"The mare Is a rack of bones, limping, weary, sore. But see1 ber foot lift!
You can't kill the pride of tbe Barbary.
She falters. Her driver lashes her over
the bead. Trove is running toward her.
He climbs a front wheel, and down
comes tbe driver. In a minute Trove
hns her by the bit He calls her by
name—Phyllis! Tbe slim ears begin to
move. Sbe nickers. God, sir, she Is
trying to see him. One eye ia bleeding,
the otber blind. His arms go round her
neck, sir, and he bides his face In ber
mane. That mure you ride—she Is the
granddaughter of Phyllis. I'd as soon
think of selling my wife. Really, sir,
Darrel was right God 'II mind the look
of your horses."
So spake an old man sitting In the
"Trove went home with tbe mare,"
he continued. "She recovered the sight
of oue eye and bad a box stall and the
brook pasture—you know, tbat one by
the beech grove. He got home tbe day
before Christmas. Polly met him at
the depot a charming lady, sir, and a
child of three was with her, a little
girl, dark eyes and flaxen curly hair.
■You remember Beryl? Eyes like her
mother's. >
"I was there at the depot that day.
Well, It looked as if they were still in
their honeymoon.
" 'Dear little wife!' said Trove as he
kissed Polly. Then be took the child in
his arms, and I went to dinner with
them. They lived half a mile or so out
of Hillsborough.
" 'Hello!' said Trove as we entered.
'Here's a merry Christmas I*
"Polly had trimmed the house. There
against the wall was a tuperlng fir
tree, bung with tin—.-1 nnd popcorn. All
urouud the room were green brandies
of holly ond hemlock.
' " 'I'm glad you found Phyllis,' said
" 'Poor Pbyllla!' he answered. 'They
broke ber down with hard work aud
Bold ber.   She'll be here tomorrow.'
" Y'ou saw Darrel on tbe way?'
" 'Yes, aud be Is the same miracle of
happiness. I think' be will soon be free.
Leblanc ls there iu prison, convicted of
a crime In Whitehall. As I expected,
there Is a red mat- on the back of his
left hand. Day after tomorrow we go
again to Dannemora. Sweetheart I
hurried home to see you.'
"Night came, dark and stormy, with
aauw In the west wind. They were sitting there by tbe Christmas tree, all
bright with candles—Polly, Trove and
tbe little chWd. They were talking of
old times. They beard a rap at tbe
door. Trove flung It open. He spoke n
word of surprise. Tbore was the eld
Santa Claus of Cednr bill; upon m.v
■word, sir, the very one. He entered,
•baking bis great coat bis beard full
of snow. He let down bis sack there
ny tbe lighted tree. He bec-oned to
the little nne.
"'Go and see blm. It is old Santa
Clans,' said Polly, her voice trembling
as she-led the child.
"Tben quickly she took the band of
her husband.
" 'He Is your father,' she whispered.
"A moment they stood with hearts
full looking at Stlnta Claus and the
child. That little one had her arms
about a knee nnd, dumb with great
wonder, gazed up at him. There was a
timid appeal In ber tweet face.
"The man did not move. He wns looking down at the c_|i_,v In a moment
sbe began to prattle 'and tug at hiin.
They saw bis knees bend a bit. Ah,
sir, It seemed as If the baby were pulling blm down. He gently pushed (lie
child away. They beard a. little cry, a
kind of a walling 'Oh-o-o,' like that yoa
* hear In the chimney. Then, sir, down
he went In bis tracks, a quivering little
heap, and lay there at the foot of the
tree. Folly and Trove were bending'
over him. Cop and wig had fallen
from bis bead. He waa ait old man.
" 'Father!' Trfjve whispered, touching
tbe long white 'bair. 'Oh, my fattier,
speak to me! Let me—let me see your
"-".owly—slowly the old man rose,
Trove helping him, and put on bis cap.
Theu, sir, he took a step back and
stood straight as a .king. He waved
them away witb his hand.
" 'Nay, boy, remember,' he whispered. 'Ye were to let him pass.' And
tben he started for the door.
"Trove went before bim and- stood
against It.
" 'Hear me, boy; 'tis better that ye
let him sleep until the trumpet calls
an' ye both stand with all the quick an'
tbe dead.'
" 'No, I have waited long, and I love
—I love him,' Trove answered.
"Those fair young people knelt beside tbe old man, clinging to bis hands.
"The good saint was crying.
" 'I came not here to bring shame,'
said he presently.
" 'We honor and with nil our souls
we love you,' Trove answered.
"'Who shall stand before it?" said
the old man. 'Behold—behold bow love
hath raised tbe dead!' He flung off his
cap and beard.
" 'If ye will have It so, know ye that
I, Roderick Darrel, am thy father.'"
*       *        •        .       •  '-..'•       •
"Now, sir, you may go. I wish ye
merry Christmas!" said that old man
of the hills.
But the other tarried, thoughtfully
puffing bis pipe.
"And the father was not dead?"
" 'Twas only the living death," said
the old man, now lighting a lantern.
"You know that grave In a poem of
Sidney Trove:
"It has neither sod nor stone;
It has neither dust nor bone.
He planned to be as one dead to the
"Oh, my father, speak to mel"
■'And the other man of mystery, who
was he*?"
"Some child of misfortune. He was
befriended by the tinker and did errands for him.'
"He took the money 'tpj-Trove that
night the latter slept In .tiie. woods?"
"And, for Darrel, returnad to Thompson bis own With usury. Thompson
was tbe chief creditor."
"With usury?"
"Yes. For years it lay under the bed
of Darrel. By and by he put the money In a savings bauk, all but a few dollars."
"And wby did be wait so long before
returning It?"
"He tried to lie rid of the money, but
was unable to find Thompson. And
Trove, he lived to repay every creditor.
Ah, sir, be was a mun of a thousand."
"That story of Darrel's In the llttle
shop—I see—It was fact In a setting of
"That's all It pretended to be," said
the old man of the bills.
"One more query," said the otber.
He was now mounted. ,"I know Darrel
went to prison for the sake of tbe boy,
but did some one set blm free?"
"His own character. Leblanc came
to love blm, like the other prisoners,
and, sir, he confessed. I declare, it's
daylight now, nnd here I am with the
lantern! Goodby, and merry Christmas!"

What It Means to Ride Second Class on
tha Railroad*.
A delusion of the guidebooks Is the
advice to ride second class on the rail
roads of Europe. It Is often poftned
out that first class and second class are
frequently but divisions of tbe same1
car, .'ind this makes a great Impression
on the iuexperienced traveler, particularly If his purse is limited. Landing
at Plymouth, Southampton, Havre.
Cherbourg. Liverpool, you are at once
conveyed to London or Paris on "steamer trains," under the same excellent
conditions tbnt have prevailed on your
trip, but thereafter you are at your
own resources, and If you are wise you
will not only travel first class, but you
will see to It that your seat Is always
engaged well ahead. If you travel second class between cities that correspond to New York and Philadelphia,
say where Intercourse Is frequent and
numerous, you will most likely have
to stand up ln all second class compartments. To get a second class seat
between Vienna and Budapest, for example, ls about like boarding a train
for Coney Island nt Brooklyn bridge on
a summer Sunday afternoon, and lf
you do get a seat somebody else sandwiches and sausages on your lap.
Another point to be remembered Is
that ln Europe you cannot engage a
whole sleeping compartment for yourself, as you can here. Yon bave to
show a ticket for each berth. Therefore It behooves the person traveling
alone at night to seek out before arranging the trip some suitable companion or for parties of three or five or
any odd..number to make similar provisions.  '' *
And  How tho Victor  In tho Struflff*
Lott tho Trophy.
Verdi bad stepped from an Incoming train in Genoa once at a time wben
Marquis di Kiidlni. tbe Italian premier,
was ln the station. The marquis t*re-
ogniz_d the musician and requested
tbe station master to Introduce Wm.
He greeted Verdi warmly, congratulated him on his fine health and wished
him many more years of life.
After taking leave of tbe premier
Verdi went to tbe station buffet and oo
returning to bis train forgot his hat
This was an opportunity not to be lost
by two admirers of the musician. They
had been watching him long, and now
they simultaneously sprang for the
hat Both reached lt at once, one
seizing one side of the brim and tlie
other the opposite. A lively combat
ensued, and thetwp swayed backward
and forward ln their desire to retain
the treasure. The lady came off victorious. "Ah!" she exclaimed triumphantly. "Now Tve got it and I Intend
to keep it!"
Her surprise was only equaled bj
his dismay wben a gentleman who
had been watching the conflict for
some time stepped forward with the
remark, "But this Is my hat!" A loud
laugh rang out from the onlookers, a
lauKli In whlcb even tbe combatants
were fain to join. The hat changed
hands, and tbe lady changed col tt
when a moment or two later she s*w
the trap Into which she had faUeu.
It was the hat of the great composer,
and tbe stranger had secured it by an
unjustifiable ruse.

Schopenhauer on Anonymity.
Anonymity Is the refuge for all literary and journalistic rascality. It
Is a practice which must be completely stopped. Every article, even ln
a newspaper, should be accompanied
by the name of its author, and the editor should be made strictly responsible
for the accuracy of the signature. The
freedom of tbe press should be thus far
restricted, so that wbat a man publicly
proclaims tlirough the far sounding
trumpet of tbe newspaper he should be
answerable for, at any rate witb bis
honor. If he has any, anil. 1f he has
none, let,his name neutralize the effect
of his words. Rascal; your namej.' For

Hi-. Majesty's Speeches Terse and Forcible—His Own  Devising.
One or two recent speeches made by
King '''".aid, notably on the occasion
of his meeting tine King of Spain' at
Uartagenn, recalls the fact that our
oove.-gn is a particularly clear and
lorcible public speaker. It is not
generally Known that he received his
hist lessons in elocution when be was
quite a little boy from a Mr. George
Hartley, a well-known actor oi thut
day. Air. Hartley was engaged to
gitfe readings at Buckingham Palace
froi" the "Antigone" and the "Oedipus" trilogy; his royal pupil certainly
profited by his instruction. Later on,
he used, wi'Ji his brothers and sisters, to give little theatrical performances, in which the future King always spoke his "lines" with grace and
The  King's First Speech.
King Edward's first public speech
was delivered when he was seventeen.
This was on .the occasion of his presenting new colors at Shorncliffe
Camp to the 100th (Prince of Wales's)
Royal Canadian Regiment, which hod
done gallant service in tie Crimean
War. It was a charming little address, in which the young Prince modestly alluded to his "youth and inexperience." An eye-witness records
that it was delivered in clear and distinct tones, with proper emphasis, and
without hesitation or timidity. But
even the most practiced speaker is liable suddenly to lose the thread of his
argument and come to a dead stop.
This agonizing experience actually
ha—-"ned to King Edward at the Royal Academy banquet more than forty
years a_ro, b"t. with admirable eond
sense, he remained silent, thinking
hard until he hei! recovered flie
threi"^. find tb»n oalmlv finished his
speech. After he bad sat down again
he turned to Sir Charles Eastlake. the
then n-esident of the Royal Academy,
and told him he was quite provoked
with bimself: "I knew it quite by
heart this morning," he declared.
How Royal Speeches Are Devised.
It is sometimes, but erroneously, declared that royal personages have
their speeches written for them. Of
course no one supposes that the
King's Speech in opening Parliament
is His Majesty's own composition; it
is well understood to be the work of
his Ministers for the time beiag, and
in it the King's English is often
shamefully maltreated! But the
King's speeches on non-political occasions, such as charitable dinners,
laying of foundation-stones, and receptions of addresses, are unquestionably of his own devising. Of course,
he has to be extremely careful in the
expression of his personal opinions.
Nevertheless, he has managed often
to make phrases which "stick," of
which, undoubtedly, the most, notable
is his famous saying about tbje pre-
TSftntion of disease: "If preventable,
whv not prevented"? These fitf^ sim:
pl^-words, so full of blunt coni—ion-
sense, seized the imagination of the
nation, and no one can tell how widespread an effect they had in advancing the cause of public health. In his
speeches at what may be called purely local functions, the King is very
hanny, and in comnosing these he is,
of course, assisted by his faithful sec-
reti'-v. Lord Knollys, who makes it
his business to acquaint, himself with
si! the local susceptibilities, whicll are
often intensely keen. Lastly, it may
be said that the King possesses one
supreme virtue ss a public speaker—
he has never been known to try the
patience of his audience, he is never
too lone. Tt is nn open secret that he
does not bimself like long sermons—
twentv minntpi he reenrds aa the
maximum—and he could not endure
the lone dinr>»<-s which were customary in the mid-Victorian age. Nevertheless, he has a great appreciation of
renlly fine oratory, and he used often,
when he was heir-apparent, to go to
the House 'of Commons and listen to
the grent political sneakers, Gladstone, Disraeli, and John Bright.
Franklin's Theory Was  Known Away
Back In Talmudio Times.
In ao article on "Current Tuples lo
Ancient Literature" J. D. Elsensteln
says in the Sydney (Australia! Standard:
"The lightning rod was Invented by
Benjamin Franklin ln 1752 to arrest
the electricity of tbe thunder. Wheu
tbo information of tbe discovery reach-
i*l Rabbi Saul Ivatzenellenbogen of
Wllna, be said tbat tbe theory was not
new, because It was already known ln
Talmudlc times, and he showed a passage in the Tosefta (third centuryi
where it says tbat 'on Sabbath it Is
permitted to placo an Iron near tbe
hennery to safeguard the fowls from
thunder and lightning strikes.' Tbo
Talmud vouches that 'there ls nothing
superstitious about this belief.' (Tosef.

Raalfield Prince Louis of Prussia and.
his adjutant Count Nostitz, were chatting In the Schloss Schwansburg-Ru-

pale and rushed from the room, pursuing through tbe ball a shadowy
white robed figure. The sentinel saw-

Next day Nostitz and the prince saw

The passing of stones or gravel, as
the uric acid formation is called,
from the kidneys through the ureters to the bladder, probably produces the most terrible pain that
human being was ever called up6n
to bear.
Mrs. Walter Hornbrook, Cody's,
Queens county, N.B., whub:
"I was a great sufferer from kidney disease, which the doctor described as the uric acid stones passing from the kidneys to the bladder.
I heard of similar cases being cured
by Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills
and sent for some. Altogether I
used seven boxes and was completely
cured. That was six years ago, and
I have never had a pain in my kidneys since. We are never without
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills in
the house."
Mr. Daniel Brown. English River,
Ont., writes: "For three years I suffered with urinary troubles, partaking of tho nature of stones in the
bladder, or gravel, nnd the pain
which I endured can scarcely be de
scribed. I was unable to do any
work, and frequently discharged
blood. Though I spent hundreds of
dollars in doctors' bills I received no !
relief, and at last decided that I
would never be able to work again.
"While in this condition I was ad- j
vised to try Dr. Chase'a Kidney-Liver
Pills, and though I had no faith in j
them or in anything else, I decided i
to give them a fair trial.   After using
one box I felt a decided change for
the   better,   and   after    taking    five |
boxes I feel like a new man.    I am
entirely out of pain, and   have    no
more    discharge    of    blood    I    can.
honestly recommend Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills to any-fellow-sufferer,
and will cheerfully verify this statement to anyone writing me."
There could scarcely be a more severe test of any treatment for the
Kidneys, and when Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills prove successful in
such cases as this they can surely
be depended upon in less severe kid-
nev ailments. One pill a dose, £5

A Severe Case Cured by Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills
"I suffered so much from nervous
dyspepsia that I feared I would become insane," says Mrs. Alfred Austin, of Varney, Ont. "For months,"
says Mrs. Austin, "I was prostrated
with this trouble. I got so bad I
could not eat a mouthful of food
without it nearly choking me. I was
affected with such terrible* feelings
of dizziness and nausea that I had to
leave the table sometimes with just
two or three mouthfuls of food for a
meal. My nerves were all unstrung
and I grew so weak that I could not
even sweep the floor. In fact my
nerves affected me to such on extent
that I feared to be left alone. I
could not sleep at nights, and used
to lie awake till I feared my reason
would leave me. I was taking medicine constantly, but it did not do me
a bit of good. I had used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills on a former occasion with good results, and at last
I determined to try them again. I
can say nothing better than that
these pills have been a blessing to
me, as they have made me a well
woman. Every trace of the indigestion is gone, and my nerves are ns
strong and sound as they were in
girlhood. Now I ' can eat anything
that is on the table, and I get sound,
refreshing sleep at nights. All this I
owe to the faithful use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, which I shall never
cease to praise."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills fill the
veins with new, rich, red blood.
That is why they strengthen the
nerves and every organ in the body.
Thnt is why they cure all troubles
due to bad blood or weak, shattered
nerves, such as anaemia, with its
grinding, wearing backaches, headaches and sideaches, rheumatism and
neuralgia, heart palpitation, indigestion, St. Vitus dance, partial paralysis, kidney troubles and those special ailments that render the lives
of so many women and growing
girls a burden. But you must get
the genuine pills with the full name,
"Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People," on the wrapper around each
box. Sold by all medicine dealers or

Canada    Has    Rich    Soils—Farmer*
Adopting Improved  Methods.
"Canadian farmers are the most progressive on earth, and Canada will
soon become the greatest food-exporting country in the world." This was
the text of the address given by Dr.
Saunders before the Royal Society of
Canada, recently.
In old Bible history mention is
made of Palestine the land rich, in
corn. The ancient Hebrews and
Egyptians were the most proficient tillers 01 the soil in those distant days,
and the latter race was the first to
raise domestic cattle. Amongst the
Romans agriculture was highly esteemed, and when luxury brought
demoralization, the noblest minds reverted to farming. The earth, said one
of those old Romans, gives back what
it received with usury, and nol—ing
con be more profitable or beautiful
than a well kept farm.
During the middle ages only the
wealthy ate wheaten bread, the poor-
- classes used rye and barley and
oats. But in the 16th century Raleigh
introduced the potato in Ireland.
However, when the Queen of England
wanted a salad for luncheon, she had
still to* d-.f-.teh'*a*'messenger to Holland.
Up to the ISth century land was
sown until exhausted By that time
farmers had learned the alternate
erop -dan of conserving the strength
of the soil; and nt the opening of the
10th century they understood the
value of manure ns a fertilizer.
Nitrogen, potash and phosphoric
acid are the three ingredients essential for good soil, and the soil of Wes-
f«Ti Canada is nearly three times as
rich in these substances as the soil of
Western Europe. Nature is often lavish, but she is always economical. Tb"
waste matter, in, plants is exhaled into
the air and fs i'udked up by the earth.
If the soil does not get enough nitrogen naturally, that chemical can
be sunolied artificially, in the shape
of sulphate of ammonia and nitrate of
soda. Norway has solved the problem
of making the production of fertilizers
a financial success, and a manufacturing plant in that country now turns
out 30,000 pounds per day. Thus the
ingenuity of man saves the Boil from
Potash is found in all fertile soils
but when this ingredient is exhausted,
the soil cnn h" restored by wood ashes
or manure. Phosphorus was formerlj
found from bones, and is yet to some
o_rtent, but now it can be taken from
minerals wliich abound in Ontario
and Quebec. Phosphate of lime is now
produced in the manufacture of iron,
nnd the slag is now used extensively
as a fertilizer throughout England and
Germany and Belgium. It is highly
probable that the plant life will always supply enough food for mankind, and the supposition sometimes
advanced thnt the rapidly increasing
population will not find sufficient
nourishment, seems remote from probability.
Twenty-three years ago, farming was
in a very depressed condition in Canada. In 1884 a select committee of the
House of Commons investigated the
causes of this depression, and found
it was due not to poor soil or idleness, but to a lack of knowledge and
skill on the pnrt of the farmers; and
ihe committee recommended the establishment of experimental farms to
promote agriculture and instruct farmers. Accordingly, in 1886, a central
(arm was started near Ottawa, with
four otlier branch farms in other parts
of Canada. In agriculture Canada is
now pre-eminent among the nations,
and even Egypt, the ancient farming
land, is asking for samples of Canadian wheat.
To the practice of alternate cropping; to the growing of clover, to the
more careful husbanding of the manure made on the farms, to the better
feeding of the farm animals, thus augmenting the value of the manures; to
the production of better varieties of
in-nins nnd to the development and
expert use of chemical fertilizers, is
larpelv due the success of present day
Canadian agriculture.

Victoria, August 26,—The School
Board is connsidering a novel situation created by the application of
Chinese children for admission to
the city schools during; tbe coming
term. The Immigration Act provides that all bona fide students
coming from China must pay the
head tax of $5 00 upon arrival, but
may, after attending a college or
school Cor a year, claim a rebate on
this sum, and twenty-six Chinese
boys bave applied for admission to
the schools for the purpose of earning this rebate. The matter was
discussed at a special meeting of the
board, and the opinion is expressed
that the Dominion Government did
not intend the rebate on the head
tax to apply to Chinese bpys attending the primary grades. No
permits accordingly will be granted
until this point Is determined.

Woman's Home  Companion.
The September Woman's Home
Companion is remarkable principally for two things—the exquisite
cover, by Earl Stetson Crawford,
which won the $1,500 prize recently offered by the Companion, and
for an excellent article on "The
Influence of Business Life on Women," by Anna Steese Richardson.
This September cover represents tbe
highest achievement in magazine-
cover work yet produced, and the
article mentioned above will make
a profound impression on all people interested in the 'subject of women in business life, as it is the candid expression of a woman who has
made a pronounced _ business success herself.
The fiction in this number is far
above the average. Anthony Hope
continues his charming novel, "Helena's Path," and Jenuette Lee, the
late Julia Magruder, Grace Mac-
Gowan Cooke aud several others
contribute short stories. Grace
Margaret Gould, the fashion editor,
has special pattern pages for children's and young ladies' school
The trend toward stringent restric
tion of .the sale and consumption of
liquor would be observed, if it wero not
obsenred by the louder noises of our
persuit of corporations. Who that has
the old idea of Kentucky will' uot be
surprised to leuru that, in 94 of the llfl
counties of that State, uo liquor is sold
In Ohio, East Liverpool, with a population of 25,000 and 53 saloons, has gone
"dry," an incident whoso higuifi—tuce,
lies in the fact that tins is the largest
city iu the State that has voted "no
license." In Texas, 154 counties have
abolished the liquor business- nud the
(ieorgin Legislature bus within a fow
weeks passed a Prohibition statute for
the entire State. In fifteen Southern
States, from oue-hulf to touriifths of
the counties are "dry" under tbe
local-option law. There is a good denl
of insight iu the remark of the Memphis,

Wit of Scottish Benr.h W1«o Lived In
Five Reigns.
The death is announced of Lord
Young, who passed awny in a private nursing home-in the West End
of London. His Lordship, who was
in his 83th year, met with an accident when walking through the Temple, and the shock hastened his end.
The cause of death is certified as
cerebral hemorrhage and old age.
His remains were removed to Edinburgh for interment. Born when
George III. was still on the throne,
the Right Hon. George Young—his
title was purely honorary—lived in
five reigns. He was still at Edinburgh University when Isord John
Russell was fighting on behalf of his
Reform Bill, and before Queen Victoria had boen three years on the
throne he was making a name at the
Scottish Bar. For over 30 years he
was a judge of the Court of Session,
Edinburgh, retiring only two years
ago, and his rare legal erudition was
pleasantly seasoned with the salt of a
rqady wit. Before his nomifiation to
the judgeship by Mr. Gladstone he
made his mark in the House of Common's, where he represented tiie Wigtown Burghs in the Liberal interest,
and twice filled the office of Solicitor-
General to Scotland and Lord Advocate. It has been said of Lord Young
that he was the only judicial humorist of whom Scotland could boast.
One of the sayings attributed to him
was that there are three degrees of
those who bear testimony in courts—
the liar, the liar, and the expert wit-
ness. In the case of a clever swindler who had earned some fame as a
philanthropist, an advocate pleaded
clemency, reminding the judge that
those who gave to the poor lent to
the   Lord.     "True,- Mr.    ,"   said'
Lord Young, "but I'm afraid we can-
na cash your man's post obi„ in this
A Heavy Premium.
Another of his sayings was
that the gift of half a million to the
Church of Scotland by the late Mr.
James Baird, the ironmaster, was the
"heaviest fire insurance premium
ever paid." He was staying at Dal-
meny when news came that Lord Wol-
mer had bten returned by three votes
for West Edinburgh. The next arrival explained that the figures should
have been 300, and that two Lords of
Session, whom he named, had voted
for Lord Wolmer. "That accounts
for the two ciphers," said Lord Young.
Going on assize with the late Lord
Deas, when it was the custom to open
the court with prayer, Lord Young
remarked at luncheon afterwards,
"Very long prayer that lellow gave
us to-day, but, after all, I suppose
it's quite right when Deas goes on
circuit that the attention of the Almighty should be specially called to
the fact." When one of the Lords
Ordinary in the outer House of the
Court of Session, Young had a somewhat heavy roll of business, partly
owing to a vacancy on the Bench
'having been kept open longer than
usual. One of his colleagues at the
time was Lord Craighill, and the new
judge, when at last he was appointed,
took the title of Lord Curriehill. On
the appointment being announced
Lord Young gratefully quoted the first
two lines of the 121st Psalm:

Lord Young's speeches and stories
were always good. At the banquet
which followed the ceremony of conferring upon him the freedom of Dumfries, four years ago, he told the company a story about his father who
in the old days owned some very fine
apple trees.
Raids Upon Fruit.
There were many raids made upon
the fruit, and Lord Young's father
laid hold of a likely youth one day
and offered him half-a-crown if he
would give a hint as to who was responsible. The boy accepted the
money on the condition that when
the culprit's name was disclosed he
would not be punished. In telling
this story Lord Young caused much
merriment by turning to the Provost
of the town, who was in the chair,
and asking him what he did with
the half-a-crown. His lordship was
ono of tho J.-1. i links with Robert
Burns. He know Jean Armour,
Burn's widow, nnd frequently partook
of hospitality in the house in wliich
tho poet had lived, and in which hu
died. His lordship also knew Bum's
children, nud the poet's granddaughter, who lived with Jean Armour, frequently visited his father's house.
Lord Young waa one of tho benchers
of tho Middle Temple, and though
his visits were rare, he was one of the
most popular of the Masters. He
was the senior member of the Bench
excepting only the King, who from
the time of his election when Prince
of Wales of course took priority.

Dr.  Miller  Takes  Up   Important  Appointment In the States.
Dr. II-..> W. Miller, who haa just
taken up his duties as psychopatholo-
gist at the Cook County Institution at
Dunning (Chicago), 111., is a young
Canadian who is making quite a name
for himself in the United States. The
case of Dr. Miller may be cited as an
example to illustrate the extent to
which civil service reform has been
carried on in the Republic during the
last few years. When he first offered
himself as n candidate as an assistant in an institution for the insane in
Massachusetts—although he had been
assured that merit alone would be
considered in making the appointment
—he naturally had misgivings that, as
an alien without influence, and in
view «'the general impression regarding the prevalence of political "pull"
in filling offices in the States, that
he would be discriminated against.
But the result of his application proved a pleasant surprise to himself and
his friends. There were three pieces
to be filled and, of the numerous candidates who wrote on the examination, only two came up to the standard set and received appointment.
One was a Canadian—Dr. Miller himself—and the other a Scotchman- from
Glasgow—both British subjects.
Since that time Dr. Miller has become quite widely known by the medical profession in the United States as
an authority on the pathological treatment of insanity. He secured his present nuite imnortant and remunerative
position entirely on his merits. Of the
ninety candidates for the place' he
mode the highest showing on examination, and was promptly offered the
There has been in the United States
of late a grent nwakening to the need
of more scientific nnd rationnl treatment of insanity as a mental disease
possible of prevention, omeliorotion
and enr-. We in Canada ore fnr behind our neighbors in this repnrd. Unfortunately, although a Canadian, Dr.
Miller would not, under present conditions in Ontnrio at least, stand
much chance of being given the opportunity to turn his talents to the
service of bis nafivn country, his family being strong Liberals. It is understood that bad be been n Conservative he wonld nrobnbly hnve been se-
Biircd by the Ontario Government to
imnrove methods of fronting the insane in this province. It is snid, indeed, thnt one member of the Cnbinet
wns very desirous of securing him
for (bin work. But although the doctor would hnve willingly remained
here at a smaller salary than he is re-
ceiviiip in Chicn.ro, such nn appointment wns o political impossibility.
Dr. Miller is o son of Mr. C. J Miller, ex-Mayor of Orillia, Ont. He graduated in medicine nt tho University
of Toronto in 1895.—Snturday Night.

INSTEAD of being the Indigestible
fruit which for ao long they were
belleved to be, pineapples are winning name nnd fame for themselves
as one of nature's numerous specifics for
the very trouble they were supposed to
create—Indigestion. It wns Benor Mar-
c.'iihi to whom the credit of tlio delicious
discovery ls due—he It wub whn found
that It was only llie tough core that was
Indigestible, and which gave the fruit

Then another discovery was made—

throat troubles, notably qulnsey and

when the other was not available.
So good a medicine has it proved, in
fact, that lt Is ranked among drugs,
both In powdered form and as a tincture.
Serving the fruit as a dessert, nfter a
heavy dinner, proves conclusively
enough its value as a digester; and,
like all of the natural medicines, It
cures without causing some other
trouble by way of reaction.
There are dozens of ways to serve It,
perhaps none of them more delicious
than the simplest of all—the picked pineapple.

Blowing the Candle.
PLACE a lighted candle on a table
at the end of a room. Invite someone to stand in front of lt, then
• blindfold him, make him take three
steps backwards, turn round three
times and then advance three steps and
blow out the candle. If he falls he
must pay a forfeit. It will be found
that very few are able to succeed, simple though the test appears to be.
"Brothor, Tin Bobbed."
Two players having seated themselves
side by side their heads are then covered with a cloth or shawl, bo that they
are blindfolded. One of the players, who
understands the game, slips the covering from his own head, and taking his
slipper, calls out, "Brother, I'm bobbed."
The second player replies, "Brother,
who bobbed you?" The first player
names one of the company, as though
he was making a guess, and the: company, entering Into the fun, cry out
"Wrong." The player then taps hia
blindfolded companion on the head. He
at once cries out, "Brother, I'm bobbed."
His companion asks him, "Brother, who
bobbed you?" Naturally, the victim
calls out the wrong name, and it ls generally some time before he discovers the
trick played upon him.
Capping Verses.
The players are supplied with slips of
paper and a pencil, and every one writes
a line of poetry, either original or from
memory. Then the slips must be folded
so that the line is hidden; but the last
word of the line must be written over
the fold. The slips are passed on, so
: that a different writer supplies the next
line, which must rhyme with the last
word of the previous line. Again the
slips are passed on, a new line Is written
and passed on with the new rhyming
word written on the fold. When the pa
pers have gone the round ef the company the slipB ara unfolded and i_»
