IS THE TAR
Maybe it isn'l! but it strikes me us tho worst kind
of a tux. II certainly adds fully 20 per cent, lo
nearly everything you eat, drink und wear, whilo
it does not add one cent lo your wages. For remember there is no duty on labor. Thut conies in
entirely free, save $50 ou Chinamen. Maybe il,
isn't a tax. However, tlmt may bo, il is a fact beyond dispute that if you deal at the
The People's Store
you will he taxed considerably less than if you go
elsewhere. We have a large stuck of the best
Groceries, Provisions, Flour, feed, Hoots and
Sliocs, Tinware and Grnniteware,   Thoso are all
taxed Of course, hut we bought them al tlte lowest
possible price, and we tax you only a very small
margin of profit, consequently our prices are lower
thau elsewhere, Tbe quality is the very best, and
these fuels you ean easily prove for yourself by a
trial order.

was claimed by the* promoters of

but on account of the tremendous

act, that pro\ i liori has been suspended, and only four revisions have
been given in ten years from 1885,

present time, winch  has resulted in

'22 years of age last February, disfranchised along with thousands of
other young men throughout this
country, by thai wicked, unjusl, expensive Dominion -Franchise Act,
which has already, as I have pointed out, cosl the taxpayers of this
country * 1,200,1)00. Worthy voters,
don'l you think it is high time you
registered your votes against such
a system of discrimination,extravagance and carelessness. Friends of
Union and Comox (who have re- i
eeiveil as much attention at the
hands of tiie government as if you
lived at the North Pole), don't you |
think that, if this large sum of j
money (nearly a million and aj
half) had been saved to the country, instead of bting wasted, tbe
pyobability of getting the E. & X.
road put through to your section —
and as a consequence giving you
increased mail facilities would be
very much Bt ranger than arc at
present or have been iii the past.
tf you think su, see that you mark
your little X in the right placi on
your ballot paper on the 23d June
ami return as your member one
who will Bupport the Hun. Wilfred
Laurier and Sir Oliver Mowat, two!
of (lanada's best-respected and most
illustrious sons, and from whom all
liberty-loving Canadians expect at
leasl an economical administration
of public affairs.
A par1 ing word to all young men
who find themselves situatod similar to my elf, and many older men
who ha\ e -1 Itled in the province
during lhe lasl 17 months: Let us
each organize ourselves into a committee uf one. Il i- true we have
no vote we are disfranchised; bul
let us rise in the strength oi our
young manhood and generate an
influence that will be instrumental
in consigning to the shades of opposition, or voting oul of political existence, the corrupt old combination
thai has swayed the destinies of this
nation for 17 years, thai has guarded nur rights with jealous eyes
(both shtil), and whose regime has
been characteiized by bad laws,
boodlinp, bungling incompetency
right up !u the end of its i atural
term of life. Lei leave nothing undone thai saould be done to secure
thai ba py result. Thee, in all
probability, at the next fed. r 1 elections our pro', incial ii its will bo
used, the provisions of which are
liberal and fair enough for any
honest man or any honest party,
Yours for honest government and
better laws, \ ICTIM.
K ITOH .Man : Perhaps ike most
farcical exhibition that has taken
place in tins Province was the poli-
lieal meeting held here to-night.
Did you ever hear of a brass band
being a sine qu 1 non of a political
meeting '! Mr. Haggari, whom 1
may class as an ali«.s of the powers
thai reign here supreme, held the
audience in torture for half an
hour. Tin- band then gave harmony, as 1 suppose, as a relaxation
of tiie disjointed utteranct s of Mr.
Haggart. I he front of the audience
may have heard his remarks, but
certainly those unfortunate persons
al or toward the end of the ball
could not dn su. To state what Mr,
Haggart said, would be impossible.
Tne chairman sanctioned a tie e
from the band as a <o<:; of applause
for lhe inci hereul remarks of ti e
-pi aker, After that someone proposed three cheers for Mr, .Mclnnes,
which was responded lo even to a
"1 get-.'' Then Mr. Cane Bpoke, l!i-
Bpeech was inten spied repeatedly
by applause, In fact, Mr. Cane
made tho only speech of the evening. Mr. Haslam elicited much
syinualh; , and bad he be ill 41 Ottawa a lil.ic inure aggressive and
le.-r- subservient, there is no doubt he
would t ' day coil ill many j' ilitical

appeared to be lhe -hunt and I'ci ling
ol the nice.ing, and if ihe Conservative candidates have no stronger
hold upon the rest of lho district
than they have upon Union, then
WO i-bail, after Ihe 23rd of .llli'.e, be
entitled ill addressing Mr. Mclnnes
toaflix the letters "M, I'." to his

THE MYSTERY SOLVED.
The Wise Man Elucidates to I lie [ll-
tolllgenl Foreigner.
The wise man and the intelligent
foreigner were walking down Commercial street yesterday admiring
the empty stores and other signs of
prosperity. "I see there is a circus
coming to town," said the intelligent foreigner, pointing to certain
cartoons displayed in the empty
windows. "Oh, no, my dear friend,
these cartoons are simply placed in
our empty stores to draw attention
to our great prosperity." And who
is the meek and gentle old clergyman supported by that stalwart
fanner and mechanic?" "That gentle clergyman, my dear friend, is a
nice old politician, Sir Charles Tupper, who has sacrificed himself for
his country, and who now looks to,
the farmers and mechanics whom
he has enriched to support him out
of their abundance. Having devoted himself all his life so entirely
to his (fountry he has scarcely been
able to secure more than a few millions for himself." "Poor old man,"
said the intelligent foreigner; "bill
who are these who are supporting
him, this prosperous looking mechanic and this contented looking
farmer?" These, my dear friend, j
are representatives of au extinct j
type, i'hey were quite numerous
iu Canada before 187il, hut gradual-!
ly became extinct after that date,
and one now would be a rant avis
nuked." "And what Hag is that
which they bear su proudly over j
their heads'.''" "That Hag, my friend,
is lhe grand old Hag uf lhe British ;
Kmpire, the Hag under whose protection these men live, the tlag of j
the country against whose merchants these men impose duties of
over ,'it) per cent., the Hag uf a country that has tn force its goods un
semi-barbarous nations at the point
of the bayonet, as ibis dear old
clergyman's son said. This tlag is
used in Canada to cover up a policy
le rrowedJrom the United States and
called McKinleyism." "But," said
the intelligent foreigner, "should
not tie' dear old clergyman have
stripes on his Hag then, if his policy
is an American one?" "Oh, nu,
my dear friend," said the wise
man, "the old clergyman should
have stripe^, but not nn the Hag.
lie should have them on his coat'
and pants for the rest uf his life."

(Ireal Colliery Deal.
A recent cable says: "The sale of the
Karl of Durham's collieries to a coni-
pnny headed by Sir James Jolcey, M. P.,
is tlic largest transaction of the kind in
recent yenrs. Thc collieries number 14,
and the produce over 2,000,000 tonsof
coul n year, nnd in the bargain were included' the famous Lambton fleet of 19
steamers, carrying coal to almost all
ports in the German empire. The exact
terms of the sale are not known, but the
company paid a million sterling to bord
Durham when they took over the prop-
u ty. The company, reckoning the collieries they already possess and the mining property of tiie Jolcey family, will
probably huve a controlling influence in
the coal trade of the world."

Three days later Hawkins walked into
Mr. Ilildrelh's oflieo with much the air
j of a man going to have all his teeth
pulled. The older lawyer greeted hill)
cheerily enough, but to Hawkins' ear
there wns an under nolo of triumph, In
truth, Hawkins hud in the last two days
suffered a moral shock that had left him
a prey to emotional neuralgia. What lie
misread aa elation wus really but a sort
of whistling to keep the courage up
here was her chiince to  make an end of
the feud.  .Sho let  Margaret  believe hu I     •*"• HUdtetl. knew well whose Imsi
was n widower until the girl was mad
with love for him tuid he more tlnui

her brother-in-law circumstantially the
state of affairs; also that it was his (Ihris-
tian duty to see that Peyton divorced
his wife and married Margaret When
thc letter was past recall, she got frightened and told Peyton what she had
doue. He did what anybody who knew
him would surely huvo expected—told
Mnj'gai'et uf his lovo, his despair, and
persuaded her to run away with him.
He would tako her to Now Orleans, to
France, whore nothing, uobody, could
separate thom, and make her life all ono
long happy dream.
"So al least the aunt told US when we
got there, your uncle ami 1. 1 was his
clerk at 16. Major Overton had let us
know what was in the wind. 1 remember now how ho looked stopping into the

"Before wo could stop him Major
Overton was in tho water. I nover saw
inch a swimmer. First ho brought Margaret to us quito doad, but with tho happiest smilo on hor face. Whon ho laid
Peyton at our feet, wo saw how it happened. Ho had tho print of a hoof in
the right temple. Major Overton looked
at tho two of them—oh, such a look I—
nnil said iu gasps to your uncle: 'Ro-
member—please—thoro has been—au—

for awhile longor—with—hor aunt.'
"With that lis drojmed senseless, but
ness alone could bring Hawkins to his
office and hud got some hint of tho syndicate's overtures. So it wits plain to his
mind that Major Overton's antagonists
meant, to force the fighting, with what
result lie had no manner Of doubt. Well
as he loved a legal battle, Mr. Hildreth
had never been able to quite sink tho
man in the lawyer. Next to Major Overton himsolf lie would feel the sting of
tho claim's oversetting, which, as he
had all along felt, only a miracle could
prevent.
After a glnui "good day" Hawkins
dropped heavily into a chair, put his
elbow on tho table and said, affectedly:
"1 tell yon. you don't know what may
happen. If anybody had said to mo a
week ago tilings were going to turn out
thus aud so, I'd 'a' told thom to their
teeth they lied. I would—sure as I sit
here. "
"What'si he matter? Syndicate busted
or gone back onyou?" Mr. Hildreth asked, Willi a sympathy that had the liveliness uf relief, Hawkins snorted with
rage. Ho Wus being mocked as well as
despoiled.
"Soe here," he growled, "let a man
down easy, can't you? I couldn't feel
more cut up if the claim had been all
niy own."
Mr. Hildreth looked puzzled.
"Is this one of your jokes?" lie asked.
"For the life uf mo I can't tell what you
aro driving at."
"Don't vou rcallv know?"
"What?"
"On your houor, uow, haven't you
heard?"
"About what?"
"Why, this inferual foolishness of Al
Ion Fauntloroy's."
"What's the size of it?"
"Oh, nothing machl Only he gives up
the fight. Will let the case go by default
next time it comes up. Just, now, too,
when the thing means a cool million in
hand and more to follow. All lost for
lack of a little bit of sand "
Mr. Hildreth gave a long whistle.
"The boy'snofool.  He must bo drunk
or  crazy,"   he  said,  half   to  himself.
Then l i Hawkins:  "Are yon sure? Maybe lie is only joking to frighten you."
'' Wish 1 could think so,'' Hawkins ro-
torted ruefully, "butlcan't Ho put it
in black and white. I read the letter

"We have seen nothing Of him yet
Oh, 1 say, Vance"—to his partner, who
was just coming in—"here arc the story

and Major Overton a millionaire if he
chooses to be."
Vance looked sharply at Hawkins. He
did not trust tho man. After he had
heard the story he turned to the news-
bearer, saying:
"For such an effect there must be a
cause. Oan you enlighten us as to that?"
Hawkins shifted his feet uneasily and
answered, with dropped eyes: "Oh, ho
saw tho oit major and heard—well,
some things that havo happened. So tho
notion takes him to play Don Quixote,
not fight any longer with an old man
and a—a—child.''
"H-m-m," Vanoe said, setting Mb
lips close. " 'The child' is pretty well

That would be an ideal settlement of
this 00-ycar-old lawsuit"
Hawkins and Mr. Hildreth exchanged
looks. Clearly Vance did not know all
that might be known regarding Overton's claim. Finding the others silent,
ho wept on:
"Good thing for you, Hawkiiu, to
have it Bettled anyway. I was talking
yesterday with one of those syndicate
fellows. From what he said, no matter
whom they buy from, your commission is
I safe. I always thought you wero a Bharn
fellow. Now I know yon for the prince
of double action bargain makers."
Hawkins smiled all over his face at
tho equivocal compliment Yet in tho
same breath he sighed.
"One way I am safo," ho said. "Still if
Allon had held out—but never mind. As
you say, any settlement is better than
none, for no settlement no salo, and
that's tho main thing with me. I tell
you it's a chance that doesn't come to a
poor country lawyer more than onoe in
a lifetime."
"Hear him, will yon?" said Vance,
apostrophizing space. "Poor country

account is positively corpulent, your

from tho claim alone. Yon owe Major
Overton a monument when ho dies. He's

I don' t wonder that yon are downheatrtcd

cheer up, old lad. Once the furnaces are

in tho harvest of damage claims."
HawkiiiB turned the livid bine red of
a turkey gobbler's anont Though money was his god, he hated to bo proclaimed its worshiper. He got np, saying
stiffly:
"Good day, gentlemen. Mr. Hildreth,
no doubt you'll wo tfce. major pretty
soon. When yon do, my regards to him,
and tell him I'll bo pleased to wait on
him with tbo agent of those foreign capitalists. Not that I'm trying to worm
you out, sir. Not at all. Only I know
thoir ways and might give you and tho
major a hint or two worth having."
"Not a doubt of it, "said Mr. Hildreth, bowing his visitor away. As tho
door closed Vance flung a curse after
him and said, slinking himself as if to
be rid of something unpleasant:
"That fellow walks straight enough,
but I never sec him that I don't feel as
though ho ware crawling and I wanted
to tread on him. "
"It would Boarcely bo safe. In tho
main lie's a good enough fellow, but
there is something of the reptile about
him," Mr. Hildreth said, puffing a big
blue cloud all above his head.
"Yuu mean the fangs, I suppose,"
Vanoe said, banging down the lid of his
desk witli extra forco and put.ing his
heels upon it.
Mr. Hildreth eyed him approvingly.
"That's right," he suid. "Old man,
I never before knewyou to give yourself
a holiday at 11 o'clock in the morning,
but what we have just heard requires to
lie celebrated in BOmo must uncommon
fashion. It is so unheard of 1 can hardly believe it even yet."
"Could anything surprise you more?"
asked Vance, lighting a cigar.
"I hardly think so. "
"Not even if the major should refuse
to give up the fifrht?"
"(loud Cod, Vanoe! You don't dream
ho will do that?"
"It is what I expect of him. "
"Viiuce!"
"Hildreth!"
"Are you sane and sober?"
"I'll make affidavit to both."
"What gives yon such an idea?"
"Major Overton, if I at all comprehend him, has fought all these yenrs not
for fortune, but to clear his father's

"No. 1 remember now, he has put

A Lesson In Politics.
Miss Nellie Parker of Richmond may
not be a politioal boss, but she has u
longer and a stronger "pull" with Pros
ident Cleveland tluni most of tho "leaders" of tho Democratic party. Miss Parker deserves to havo much influence at
Washington—or anywhere else, for that
matter—for sho is one of tho distinguished beauties of the south, and Hint
is saying a great ileal. The story of the
great, favor sho is held in by the administration is interesting, Some mouths
ago tho president visited Atlanta, and
Miss Parker took advantage of his presence there  to call upon him.    Hu wus

Students' of the musical history of the
(lose of the eighteenth century are familiar with the name of Mrs. Billing-
ton. For some 1)0 years, at a time when
the urt of singing wus perhaps at its
Eenith, sho reigned us oue of the bright
particular stars of tho musical world.
Sir Joshua immortalized her as St. Cecilia, and iu the fulsome fashion of the
lay it was suid that instead of representing her us listening to the angels he
iVmld have painted the ungels us silent
before her. Michael Kelly, the pupil of
Mozart) said of her, "I thought her an
angel in beauty und tbe St. Cecilia of
long," and Haydn naively recorded in
his diary, "Sho ie a great genius, and
till the women hate her because she is
beautiful." Her history is very curious,
tnd the briftiuuey of hor career as an
irtist is iu strange contrast to the scandals which surrounded her from her
very childhood,
The Georgian era was not a poriod
remarkable lor morality, on or off tho
stage, but making every allowance for
the exaggeration of newspaper gossip, it
is impossible to come to tho conclusion
that tho life of Mrs. Hillington was remarkable fur its virtue, even if tbo
darker aociisatious which wore freely
brought against her are untrue. It says
much for her personal charm that she
remained from first to lust, u favorite
with thu public, and hor fascination as
a singer enabled her to triumph over
difficulties which, even in those days,
would huvo wrecked the career of a less
popular urtisl.—National Review.

Girls In Cuba.
A Cuban girl's life is very restricted,
nnd sho is never allowed to go out alone
or receive callers of the other sex, except in tho presence of her ohnperon or
some member of her family. If dining
her childhood sho attends n day school,
a maid or some family servant lakes
her there every day, and she cannot go
as short a distanoe as across the street
unaccompanied.
In some instances Spanish customs
are absurd and incongruous, livery well
fitted establishment in Cuba is provided
with u concierge, to gnard the entrance
and admit callers. This man, usually
an ignorant peasant, sometimes escorts
the young ladies of the family ho is
serving, and that is considered perfectly
proper, whereas it would not be propel'
for thom to no out attended by a gentleman, even if bo were old enough to bo
thoir father, and an old frieud of tho
family as well.
Of lule yenrs, however, tho frequent
intercourse between Cuba and the United States bus somewhat modified tho
customs. For instance, two ladies can
now go out alone in Havana in the daytime, which would have been considered
un unheard of uud almost shocking proceeding a few years ago.
Tho social pastimes a girl enjoys in
Cuba consist of balls, parties, concerts,
receptions, the theutor and opera and
picnics, for Cubans have adopted this
American diversion, although iu a modified form, to suit the requirements of
Cuban etiquette.

Combinations of Women.
Wo do not know how any ono can
speak about wonion us Tho Nurth American Roview speaks in tho words following :
"It is doubtful if women under any
circumstances can combine nt all. Certain qualities nre necessary for combination, and these qualities are represented in women by their opposites."
Surely it is folly to propagato a theory
of this kind as against the experiences
that are everywhere made manifest in
life. Tho combination of women is one
of the most remarkable features uf the
history of the times. Hundreds • " |
thousands ot them aro combined in the
Women's Christian Touiperiuico union
and in the Young Women's Christian
association. Thero aro tons of thousands
of them organized in woman suffrage
societies. There ure scientific, artistic,
legal, literary, social, musical and reform organizations of womeu. There are
trades uuioua of womeu.
An eutire column, or more yot, of our
paper would be taken up with a list of
the definitely constituted combinations
of women that exist iu this city alone.
Possibly there may be over a million
members of women's societies iu the
United States. And yet the writer in
Tbe North American Review says that
"it is doubtful if women under any circumstances can combine at all." Why,
dear sir, you aro all wroug, ub you
ought to kuow by this time.
The theory of The North American
Review's theorist is that women do not
possess certain qualitios which ure needed for combination. Of course it is a
man theorist, and a poorly informed
oue, too, who propounds this amazing
error. He cannot be un investigator.
He has failed to got at the plieuomenu
which form tho best foundation for
solid and onduring theories. Let him
pursue knowledge hereafter nnder the
direction of Mrs. Stanton, Miss Anthony
and their associates.
We will speak here of yet another
thing, and it is that the women's combinations soem to get along better than
the men's. We hardly ever hear of a
quarrel in any of them; we never hear
of an outbreak. Now, then, make u
comparison between them und lots of
men's combinations, where there are
often wrangliugs and squabbles, or even
sometimes broils, brawls, warwhoops
and other painful manifestations. It
would seem, indeed, that the gentle sex
are better fitted for combination than
their bellicose brethren. They possess
certain qualities nnlike thoso of man

Woman's  Disadvantage*.
The obstacles in tho way of a woman
fitting herself for self support wero recently illustrated hy tho ensouf a young
girl who wished to go to college. She
and her twin brother had been brought
up by nu aunt in strained circumstances,
uud the only wuy to obtaiu a college
education seemed to be to borrow
money. Both hud inherited exceptiouul
intellects aud both desired to enter professions. It would have taken years to
earn tho money for a college course,
though with tho holp of tho higher
education the sum borrowed could iu
all probability be soon paid. Of tho two

Women Police Matrons,
One of the stock arguments against
equal suffrage has beou that if women
vote some womeu must hold office.
But it is becoming more and more evident that the good of the community
requires some women to hold office. The
Baltimore Sun, the conservative mouthpiece of a highly conservative city, says
editorially:
"Mayor Hooper's suggestion that
there should be a woman ou the board
of visitors to tho almshouse and oue on
the jail board is excellent and should
> be curried out. Both institutions would
bo improved by having a woman among
thoso authorized to scrutinize their management und to look after the moral und
physical condition and treatment of the
female inmates. Matrons ut thu police
stations wore regarded as u doubtful innovation when first suggested, but tbe
wisdom aud humanity of the policy wero
speedily demonstrated. Whether woman's realm properly exteuds to political
affairs is a question still very much in
dispute. But there can be no question
that it is not bonnded by the confines of
tbo household, and that she is not only
a valuable but a necessary auxiliary in
public work such as that proposed by the
mayor. There is not only room but an
imperative demand for her in this field,
and the Boouor she is generally employed in it the better it will be for civilization and tho world."

No one except " Very Young" Gnyer-
n, and he never told his views, knew
taaBiw old "Very Youug" Gayerson  be-
'iveil  the Venus Aunodumiiii to be.
Perhaps he thought her five aud twenty,
nr perhaps sho told him that she waa
this age. "Very Young" Gayorsou
would have forded the Gugger iu flood
to carry her lightest word, and had implicit fiiilh m her. Every one liked
him, and every one was sorry when thoy
saw him so bound a slave of the Venus
Annodomini.
Every one, too, admitted tlmt it was
not her fault, for the Venus Annodomini
differed from Mrs. Hanksbee and Mrs.
Reiver in this particular—sho never
moved a linger to attract uny ono, but,
like Ninon do l'Enolos, all men wero
attracted to her. One could admire and
respect Mrs. Hanksbee, despise and
avoid Mrs, Beiver, but ono was forced
to adore tbe Venus Annodomini,
"Very Young" Gayerson's pupa held
a division or acolleetorate or something
administrative in an unpleasant part of
Bengal—full of babus who edited newspapers proving that "Young" Guyersou wus a Nero, and a Seylla, and a
Oharybdis, and in addition to tho
balms I here was a good deal of dysentery and cholera abroad for nine mouths
of tho year. "Young" Gayerson—he
was about livo and forty—rather liked
babus—I hey amused him—but ho objected to dysentery, and when ho could get
away went to Darjiling for the must
part. This particular season ho fancied
that he would oome up to Simla and see
his boy.
Tho boy was not altogether pleased.
He told the Venus Annodomini that his
father was coming up, and she flushed
a little, and said that she should be rto-
lighted to make his acquaintance. Then
sho looked long and thoughtfully at
"Very Y'oiing" Gayerson, because sho
wns very, very sorry for him, and ho
was a very, very big idiot.
"My daughter is coming out in a
fortnight, Mr. Gayerson," sho said.
"Your what?" said he,
"Daughter," said tho Venus Annodomini. "She's been out for a year at
borne already, and 1 want her to see a
little of India. Sho is 1!), and a very
sensible, nice girl, I believe."
"Very Young" Gayerson, who was a
short 22 years old, nearly fell out of his
chair with astonishment, for he had
persisted in believing, against all belief,
iu the youth of tho Venus Annodomini,
Sho, with her buck to tbe curtained
window, watched the elfoct of hor sentences and smiled.
"Very Y'oiing" Gayerson's papa
camo up IS days later, and had not beeu
in Simla four and twenty hours before
two men, old acquaintances of his, hud
told him how "Very Young" Gayersou
had been conducting himself.
"Young" Gayerson laughod u good
deal, and inquired who the Venus Aunodomiiii might ho (which proves that
he had been living in Bengal where nobody knows anything except the rate of
exchange). Then ho said, "Boys will be
boys," and spoko to his son about, tho
matter. "Vory Youug" Gayerson said
that he felt wretched and unhappy, and
"Young" Gayorsou suid that he repented of having helped to bring a fool into
tho world. He suggosted that his son
hud better cut his leave short and go
down to his duties. This led to an
uuliliul answer, and relations were
strained, until "Young" Gayerson demanded that they should call ou tbo
Venus Annodomini. "Very Youug"
Gayerson went with his papa, feeling
somehow uncomfortable and small.
Tho Venus Aiiuodomini received them
graciously, and "Y'oiing" Guyersou
said: "By Jove! It's Kitty!" "Vory
Young" Gayerson would have listened
for an explanation if hia time had not
been taken up with tryiug to talk to u
large, handsome, quiet, well dressed
girl—introduced to him by the Venus
Annodomini us her daughter. Sho wus
far older in manner, stylo aud repose
than "Very Young" Gayerson, and aa
hu realized this thing he felt sick.
Presently he heard tho Venus Annodomini saying:
"Do yon know Unit your sou is ouo of
my most devoted admirers?"
"I dou't wonder," said "Young"
Gayerson. Here ho raised his voice:
"He follows his father's footsteps.
Didn't I worship the ground you trod
on ever so long ago, Kitty? And you
haven't changed since then. How
strange it all seems I"
"Very Young" Gayorsou said nothing. His conversation with the daughter
of tho Venus Annodomini wus through
(he rest of the call frugmoutury aud disjointed.

"At 5 tomorrow, then," said tho Ve-
nna Annodomini. "And mind you ure
punctual."
"At 5 punctually," suid "Young"
Gayerson. "You can leud yonr old father u horso, I dure say, youngster, can't
ycu? I'm going for a rido tomorrow

"Certainly," said "Vory Ynnng"
Gayerson. "I inn going down tomorrow

Until ouo hot day last August Bradley Newell was only lho blacksmith of
tho little Vermont village of Jacksonville. Ho was just like all the other
blacksmiths the village had over soeu.
From early sunrise until late iu tho day
ho made the sparks fly at lho anvil, and
tho children used to gather at the door
and watch linn put. on tho stagecoach
that runs from Brnttleboro, 20 miles
away. Now they look up to him with a
feeling half wonder and nwe. From one
of the mosl obscure of men he bus suddenly become known for hundreds of
miles about as the blacksmith healer,
who, by the laying on of his hands, is
able to cure nearly any disease. Dozens
of his townspeople attest his cures, aud
hundreds from surrounding villages and
towns have felt the healing inlluenco of
his touch.
At the village tavern he is the solo
topic of conversation and is pointed out
to visitors as a man gifted with supernatural powers. Tho blacksmith still
works at his trade and stops between
odd jobs that he does for the folk about
tho country to place his hands upon tho
afflicted and bid them go their way
cured. Nowell is a sirikingly handsome
man, large, well formed, with a frank,
open face, big hazel eyes aud a clear,
white complexion. He himself claims
nothing. All ho knows is that ho has
cured. Unlike Schlatter, ho does not
claim to bo Christ.
When asked from where ho considered ho received his power to heal, ho said :
"I don't know. I guess 1 never shall
know. One day last August I was working in the shop, and there was a buzzing in my ears. It was a strange, funny
buzzing, a buzzing that I had never
heard before—not a buzzing and a ringing like when you have a cold iu your
head or have beard a loud noise, but u
buzzing that I can't describe. I stopped
aud listened to it, and a voico said just
us clear and distinct us any voice I ever
heard:
" 'You can cure tho sick by laying on
your hands.'
"I didn't say anything to anybody
becanso I was afraid that they would
laugh at mo. I just kept it tu myself.
One day not long after that my wifo
had a headache, und the voice said to
me, 'You can cure your wife,' so 1 says
kind of dubious like, 'Ellon, I think I
can cure your headache.' I took her
hands, held 'em on mine for a minute,
uud she says, kind of surprised, 'Why,
Bradley, my headache's uli gone.' That
was i he si art ing of il, and it's been going
on over since."
Tho people say, no matter whero the
blacksmith gets his power, over 2,000
people have been treated by him since
lust August, when the mysterious voice
lirst buzzed in his cars und then tuld
him he possessed the power tobeal. The
spiritualists say Ihat Newell is a healing medium and the voice thut spoke to
him was a spirit doctor who desired
him to be under his control. The ones
who profess to know it nil sit about the
tavern aud say it's hypnotism. Others
say it's magnetism.
Whilo the chnichgoing population of
tho little village do not lend their support to the healer, they do not denounce
him. They claim that uuy power he
posscssos comes through God Almighty.
The minister of the only church in town
ia Miss Craven. She is a Methodist and
speaks pleasantly of Newell. She does
not kuow that the healer's power is
aguinst any of tbo teachings of Scripture, but is sure that he docs not got it
from the dovil.
When asked what kiud of diseases he
had cured, the healer said, "Mostly nil
kinds—rheumatism, lameness, swellings, hourt trouble, pleurisy, colds, tumors, deafness and nearly ovory kiud."
A man from Halifax with the orysipo-
las, almost dead and crazed with pain,
-was brought to him, In five minutes His
erysipelus was goue  uud he loft a well
man,
A boy named Freeman Hager, who
had been uuablo to move a musclo for
four days after a case of scarlot fever,
was cured by Newell. The boy's father,
who had suffered for yoars by being hurt
by a falling tree, was ulso cured ut the
sunio time.
Whilo many have claimed that the
healer cured persons imagining they
wero sick, the fact that ho has cured
animals as woll is held up by his believers ns strong proof that this is not
U'u . He receives lottors from all parts
of the country, asking him to come to
this or thut pluco uud do what he can.
He soldom replies to them.
Ho recoutly made a trip to Brnttleboro
to bo gone a day, but so many peoplo
dosired his servicos that he was compelled to remain three days. Tho heuler
himself novel' promises u cue aud never
asks anybody to huve faith. Whilo not
a believer iu roligion, Nowell is not a
scoffer uud thinks thut every mini is
entitled to beliove as suits him best. For
nil his work lie docs not usk a eent. If
any one desires to give him money and
he feels thoy can nfford it, ho accepts it.
If thoy aro poor, ho refnses the money.
Since he has started tu heal people it is
estimated ho has refused at, least $10,-
000.
Unlike Schlatter, tho Vermont healer's record is kuown to every one in tho
village. He was bom but a few miles
from it 110 years ago on a farm. Ho is
the oldest of live children. After living
on the farm until ho was a good sized
boy he wont to Boston uud from thero
to Cambridge. Ho finally learned the
blacksmith's trade at Rowo, and four
yours ago returned to Jacksonville and
purchased tho blacksmith shop. Ho is
married and is the father uf throe fine
boys. Ho is an active momber of both
the Masonic order and the Knights of
Honor.—Now York Journal.

No longer does Venice sit instate; hour!

Why He Have the Good Clear Away.
"Will you havo a cigar?" asked one
man of another, carefully selecting oue
of threo which ho drew from his waistcoat pocket. He handed this one to his
friend. Tbe oilier man smiled and said:
"I suppose this is tho kind you buy to
give away."
"Y'ou might think so, but it isn't,"
rejoined the one who had given tho cigar. "As u matter of fact, the ouo 1
gave you is much the best of the lot. I
always give away tho cigars of that
brand whioh I receive. It's uot, becanso
thoy aro bad, but because they are good.
This is bow it is: For several years I
huvo been buying my cigars of a dealer
iu Nassau street. I always got a kiud
which costs $10 a hundred. lam not
overfoud uf the brand, but it is tho best
that I can get for the money, and I feel
that I cannot alford to pay more for my
cigars.
"For some time the dealer has been
vory anxious to get mo to snioko a cigar
that costs $1(1 n hundred. He assures me
thut tho difference between it and the
ono I got is far greater thau tliB prices
would indicate. Some of my friends also
smoke this expensive cigar, and they
assure ine it reully is exceptionally good.
From time to timo the dealer gives me
one of the 10 cent kind to smoke, assuring mo that if I will only try it I will
buy no othor. The truth is, I fear ho is
riglit, so I havo resolutely resisted the
temptation to smoke tho gift cigars. Instead, I hand them to some friend. That
is one of them. Do you believe now that
I gave yon tho worst?"
The friend saw no further reasou for
doubting that the cigar which ho had received was the best of the lot.—New-

The March of the Bicycle.
The bicycle has come, and, although
tho predominance of the horse in sport
is not destroyed, it is no longer undisputed. Not liko that other, that with
such sulphurous manifestations tumbled
tbo knight from hia steed, this modern
machine, in quiet and orderly manner
us becomes tbo present, is tumbling his
modern counterpart from hunter and
from hack. Gradually it has been growing iu favor, and now it is bearing all
before it. There is no dignity too great
to bo borne by the nimble wheel, and
ooquetryhas been sacrificed for its sake.
Every one rides, und it is singular that
the most bigoted horseman often falls

Innovation—sometimes, it is true, ou

Remarkable "High and Lofty Tumbling"
by Men, Women and Children—From
What Height -liny a Person ICall aud
Not Bo Killed Thereby?
From how great a height may a person fall and livo? This question was
suggested by the experience of Dr.
Hoiiu, the Zurich professor, who told
how bo fell a great distance down a
glacier in Switzerland and lived to relate his sensations. His aim was to prove
that sudden death was not painful. The
(ither phase of the question—how far
may wo fall unhurt—is just us interesting, however.
The well known Alps wanderer, Si-
grist, fell backward off tho crown of the
Korpfstork Alp, Switzerland, aud landed on tho rocks ul, the foot of the glacier.
Of course bis fall was somewhat broken
as ho bounded from spur to spur, but
the fall was a great one nevertheless,

The Post-Dispatch recorded tho feal of
a negro who, lo escape punishment for
stealing n ride, jumped over the Delaware bridge on the Erie railroad at Port,

a bed of gravel covered only by six
inches of water, he escaped serious injury,
George Petorski, a young Polish boy
aged 11, went out for huckleberries on

That case had youth in its favor. Hero

He crept to the window while his mother was asleop. His fall was broken by
an awning.
Women seem especially able to drop
from any height uud receive little or no
injury. In France recently a woman
tried to commit suicide by jumping
from a high bridge. She was hardly injured. Near Niagara fulls u woman fell
over a precipice and lauded some huudred feet below, alive and able to tell of
it.
Mrs. Annie Keeney leaped out of a
fifth story window of 125 East One Hundred and Eighth street, New York, and

She swuug off the roof to n fire escape
uud asked the occupants of 125 for

across the yard between the tenement

one of these to another in her fall, until
she finally landed, badly shaken up, but

Stevenson's work, he wus mado the victim while he lived of such au extravagant system of puffing, that thoso who
did not know him were almost inevitably forced to associate him with his
flatterers and to believe that ho must
soe himself with their eyes. It is clear
that, ho did not. His most exacting
critic cau hardly have judged him moro
sternly than he judged himself.
"For the nonce my ski li deserts me,
such us it is, or was. Il wus a very little dose of inspiration, and a pretty littlo trick of slyle, loug lost, improved
by Ihe most heroic industry. So fur I
have managed to please the journalists.

It is not often one finds a popular author writing in such u strain—au author, loo, whom there seemed a general
conspiracy among tho reviewers to spoil.
What a contrast it is to the following
exlract from tho touching epilogne added to theso letters by his editor and
friend:
"Tbo fragment on which he wrought
(luring tho last month of his life gives
to my mind, as it did to his own, for
tho first time the full measure of his

masterly, of more piercing human insight or more concentrated imaginative
vision and beauty, I do not know it."

One day in a Sixth avenue chophouse
a well dressed young man sitting ut a
table not far from nie finished his lunch
and usked for his check, but as it waa
brought to him ho suddenly rose up uud
hurried to the cashier's desk, whicli was
near tbe door, aud said:
"Sir, 1 havo dropped $50 out of my
pocket in this place! Let no one go out
unlil I make a search !"
"Where's your check?" he was asked.
"Here it is. I hud two tweuties und
u$10 bill."
"Will you pay this chock of $1.50?"
"I can't till I lind my roll."
"Thomas, call in uu officer!"
"But what for?" asked the victim.
"To arrest, you if you don't payl
That's au old game—too ancient to

"But I havo dropped $50!"
"Guff!    Will you pay?"
"I'll pay if I can find my money. I
know I hud it wheu I came in here."
"Call the copper, Tom!"
Two minutes later an officer bnstled
in to seo what was wauted. Tho cashier
was telling him that he hud a deudbeat
to be cured for when a woman roso up
to leave, and the young man's $50 wan
found ou the floor, where it hud been
covered by her skirts.
"Didn't I tell you so!" he exclaimed
us he returned to the cashier to pay the
check. "Nice sort of man, you are I I'll
suo you for damages before I'm through
with this!"
The cashier looked tired, but mads
no reply. When the indignant young
man had departed, I said:
"Then he wasn't a beat, after all?"
"The slickest kiud," he replied.
"But he lost his money, and it waa
found."
"Don't you bolioroitl The woman

Lord Ellenborotigh's Wig.
Lady Ellenhorough, a renowned beauty, ou one occasion accompanied the
judge on circuit, on the distinct understanding that she should not incumber
the carriage with bandboxes—his abhorrence. During tbe first day's journey
Lord Ellenborough, stretching his legs,
chanced to strike his foot against something under tho scat. It was a bandbox.
Down went tho window and out it flew.
The coachman, thinking the box had
fallen uut, at once pulled up, but hia
master furiously roared out the order to
"drivo ou." Ou reaching tho next assize
town, Lord Ellonborotigh proceeded to
equip himself for the bench. "Now,"
said ho, "where is my wig?" "My
lord," replied tbe attendant, "it was
