Vance was n true prophet. When it
camo ont that no persuasion, no counsel,
could win Major Overton to accept Allen Fauntloroy'B surrender, that ho per-
slated in leaving that fatal cloud on the
title, Hawkins fell first iuto a foaming
rage, later into a hard iveil, sharp edged
anger that augured ill for whoever
might chance to be held in his power.
Yet Hawkins was not ordinarily bad
tempered Indeed bo reckoned himself
•among tlm mosl generous and forbearing
of mankind, ospoeially whon be thought
of Major Overtou, whose secret he had
so faithfully kepi through till those
years of warfare.
To think tlmt now tho major oould bo
eo selfish, could sot hia own foolish notion of right and honor above lho music
of jingling gold in botli poekots—Hawkins' pockets! Clearly ho orgbt to be
reminded of what, he owed to tiie disappointed attorney; made to unilcrt-taad

All the. world was bright with sumny :•'
most radiant smile.   Hawkins hocdi d i
as littlo as though blindness veiled I,
eyes. He saw only precious yellow poll
vanishing forever, held  from his ban,
by an obstinate old man, whom ho wished heartily "dead aud done with It all,"
not from any personal grudge, but simply by way of setting right an inconvenient complication.
All tho way ho told himself over nnd
over tho story of his wrong, bis deserving, By the time ho camo into Major
Overton's presence ho was so full of
-wrath as to lose sight of discretion.
The major sat at case within the narrow front portico listening to the en inly
news which Dare read in scraps from
the local papers. Through the Ion;* ball
caine the drone of mammy's whoolfrom
the back piazza. Under a rosebush, a little to one side of tho door, Jubilee sat
polishing knives by rubbing thom bard
in the fresh earth at its root.
Hawkins looked at all of it with a
contemptuous eye—it wius so poor and
rough, poverty stricken almost, beside
his gorgeous imaginings of what might
bo easily be in its stead. Very deliberately he filing bis reins over the limb of a
near maple, gut, down and walked to the
unhewn stone steps, paused witli a foot
upon the lowermost one and said in deepest chest, tones:
"Good day, major. I'd liko a littlo
talk with you this morning. Will you
come out with me, or shall 1 como In?"
"Good day, sir. Be seated," Major
Overton said, rising courteously to welcome the guest, at, sight of whom Dare
had vanished.
Hawkins climbed the threo steps in
front of him with the ponderous tread
of an angry man and sat heavily down
in a big splint cluiir, dropped his hat
upon thn floor and said, brushing
his mustache a line, scented
"Yon. are surprised, I know, to seo mo,
major, but my surprise is that I haven't
con a ■ before.''
, A deep line drew in betwixt Major
Overton's brows, but he said, Willi 00

"Indeed! Then you must have urgent
"I have,"said Hawkins, uncrossing
his legs and setting both fool linn on tlie
floor.    Leaning forward, ho continued:
"The fact is, major, yon haven't used

know, for I sent you word through Hildreth, how 1 slund regarding liiis sale,
yet just for a chimera you set yourself
against everything.  If it meant nothing
to anybody but yourself, I'd agree yon
had a perfect right to aot—well, the fool
if it, suited yuu.   Uut, taking mom y out
of my pocket is another thin
think it is quite square,
you owe me'.'"
The last words were spoken vory low,
but, Major Overton caught thoir full
meaning. Ho sat up very straight, nnd
lightning began to play under his penthouse brows. Gripping hard t lie wooden
iirius of his chair, lie said, not loudly,
but with a ring of d. fiance:
"No doubt, Mr. Hawkins, right and
honor aro to you but chimeras, not u
feather's weight in the scale against
hard cash.   Unfortunately lor yuu, I seo
differently.   As to any obligation that
I may la, under, if money or material
advantage c.in discharge it, then it does
Hot exist."
Hawkins rose up in white fury.
"Do you moan fo say that I lie?" ho
roared. "Wouldn't yon have paid all
anil more I ban nil you wero worth to
keep people from bearing that your only
•laughter will fully, knowingly, ran away
with a married man? By the Lord, sir,
they shall hear it, with proof, too, such
proof as cannot be pushed aside, unless
you listen to reason. I've iKien easy with
you, your friend so long, you forgot,
didn't you, how I could cut your pride?
Now mako your choice and DO quick
about, it. I'm not in the humor to stand
uny moro of your airs."
Both men had riHcn and Stood faco to
face. Major Overton's jaw was like iron,
his eyes deadly, hut his hands hung at
his side, his touo was low aud oven ns
ho said:
"Under my roof, Mr. Hawkins, you
say what you please. Repeat your threats
away from it, I will answer them ils

"Yon shall suffer for this," Hawkins
Raid, turning upon his heels.
"No, you will," said Allen Fnnntlo-
roy, who had como unheard of cither
contestant and stood a bans throe foot
' 'Stand asldo,'' said Hawkins furiously, trying to shoulder post Allen cuught
that miserable past you sign your own
death warrant! It touches me, too, remember. I will shoot you witli as little

As Hawkins reeled down tbe steps
Allen turned to Major Ovoiton.
"Forgive my intrusion, sir," he said,
"or at least hear my errand before yon
punish it. Vou warned mo fairly of the
risk 1 ran in coming, but in spite of it 1
felt that I must see you here at ouco
"Will you conic within to speak.'"
Major Overton said, with grave courtesy, leading tho way to the small office

was spent and shaken in spite of his iron
nerve. Ho sat down heavily, with a long
sigh, und said as though speech were
"Sinoo our last meeting, Mr. Fauntleroy, my opinion of you has changed,
though unluckily fate has put it. out of
the power of either of us to change our
course of action."
"Yon mean we can never be friends?
Believe me, Major Overton, if 1 laid
known everything 1 would never have
dared to thrust my presence upon you.
When I came to know all the wrong yon
had suffered, suffer yet, I felt that it
must henceforth be the purpose of my
lifo to help you to your owu."
Tho old man looked at him with a
long, farseeing gaze, saying: "It is my
own—justly, honorably my own—but I
must prove it. I will. I can take it on no
man's sufferance 1 would not lift a finger to tako it all, save that I must do it
to clear my father's name. "
"Do you notoare for fortune?" young
Fauntleroy asked.
The major touched bis whito hair.
"Whyslioald I?" ho said. "I am old,
old. Could fortune bring back one year,
•no day even, that it has lost me? Hon-

cstly, now that I find what stuff you
are made of, I am sorry that I cannot
leave you in peaceful possession, even
when I remember whose son yon nre."
"You forget your grandchild," Allen said, halting ever so slightly over
the word.
The major shook his head.
"No, but what can a girl do with
money? lt is oftcner than not a curse to
her, makes her tho prey of fortune hunters, drives deserving lovers away. IJo-
lieve me, young man, the trouble of the
world comes through and to women.
Why, there is, in my judgment, n woman at the bottom of this disagreement
of ours."
"Indeed! Tell inewhoshe isorwus?"
Allen said, witli a great start.
"You forget 1 have yet to hear what

"I dare say yuu think   1  mean  my
mother.  1 know if has been said she was
the prime cause of  this fend.   But she
had nothing whatever to do witli it,
though I believe she declined tho honor
of becoming your grandmother," Major
Overton  said, sinking wearily back in
his chair.   After a minute he went on:
"I was born iu Carolina; wan a stout
lad of 8 when we came over the mountains, so  1   remember very well  how
Jincey, my mother's maid, moaned and
wept on the way, nml how the other negroes laughed and snid tauntingly that
sho was crying for ber sweetheart, who
had been left behind, though my father
tried bard to bring him.    Bob's master
wius willing to part with him, but Bob
himself, it seems, had another string to
his bow.    At  any rate, he declined to
leave  Carolina   for a new,   unknown
country, and six months later some ono
wrote my mother  thut hn had married
the yellow maid of  his young master's
wife.   Jincey was jnst 18 then, a slim,
supple, stealthy thing, quick us a Hush
iu all her movements.  When my mother
told her tho neWB that Bob was married,
she got, ashy and staggered against the
wall, but said no word.  Tho next Saturday night sho waa married to old Isaac
Bell, tho most famous conjuror in the
country, a hideous, toothless old fellow,
who looked all of 80.    My mother tried
in vain to change her purpose.   Jincey
swore that she loved him; had no uso for
young niggers. So sho had her way, and
old  Ike becamo a nightly visitor, his
master's plantation lying broadside to
ours.   Soon Jincey became so slow and
enroll ss about her duties that my mother
said to her, 'If you cannot do better, 1
must put you to spinning.' 'Dat's whut
I want,' she said sullenly, and from that
day forward sho spent her timo in her
cabin. She was a swift worker when sho
choso. Often her task was dono by noon.
Afterward sho roamed woods and fields,
staying away sometimes till after midnight. Tho other negroes stood in mortal terror of her; said sho was a worso
conjurer than her old husband, who, odd-
ents always treated Jiuooy with tho utmost kindness, I am sure sho hated
them, with tbe wild, unreasoning hate
of passionate ignorance. If, she reasoned, they had not brought her away from
the old home, Bob would be her husband instead of that hated yellow girl's,
though no doubt, bad she married him,
she would have been glad after a little
to cast him aside. It was tho thwarting
of ber passion that gave it force and
constancy. God forgive mo if I wrong
her, but 1 believe my mother died at her
bond of sumo subtle, sudden poison; my
young Iiml lid's and sisters ils well. 1 am
sure, too, tlmt her hand took away our
deeds, of ci mrse by connivance of those
outside, who made away with tho records.
"So I have believed for years, Latterly I have fouud a clew, faint, but tangible enough to givehopoof development.
You seo, 1 speak frankly to yon, my enemy, for I pay you tho compliment of
feeling that it is safe to do so."
"Surely," said Allen. "Else why
should I be here? It must be 08 you say.
Is this woman still living?"
Major Overton nodded. The otlier
went on.
'' i'esterday tbe humor seized mo to go
through my grandfather's secretary. Did
you know him, sir? Ho must havo been
near y, mr age.''
"He was six months younger, " Major
Overton said. "We played together in
short frocks and got our first trousers at
the same time, but he did not come out
until after my father's death. Naturally,
then, we mot ouly in the courts.''
"I remember him well, u slim, tall
man, of whom I was very much afraid,
but. one who impressed me always as the
soul of honor," Allen said reflectively.
Major Overton's mouth hardened.
"No doubt he was, as ho read such

"Was his father liko him?" asked Allen.
The major shook his head.
' 'No. Ho was a weak, good natnred,
obstinate man, who needed always to
have his mind mado up for him, though
once it was made up heaven nor earth
could change it."
"Do you think ho was deceived into
claiming land to whicli he had no title?"
"No, hut, that  he was cheated into
paying for land that belonged to another
"Then, in your judgment, both sides
were victims. Havo you any idea how
it came about?"
"Ideas! Plenty, but no proofs."
"Then perhaps this may la- of value,"
Allen said, holding out u packet of yellow papers covered with faded script
"Here are some letters betwixt my great
grandfather and his Tennessee lawyer,
detailing the purchase of the land and
giving tho original locator's nanie."
"Let me see it. Quick, quick!" Major
Overton almost shouted.    Allen laid a
finger upon one blurred line, saying:
"There it, is—Bruce Stirling!"
"What!"   Major Overton fell back,
"Bruce Stirling," Allen repeated.
"Do you know him? Did yon ever hear
of him?"
"Brace Stirling! I see it all now. Yes,
I havo heard of him. Nothing to his
credit. Why, bo was said to havo been
one of the Murell gang. He was known
to be gambler, blackguard, spendthrift,
wholly without principle. No wonder
ho entered lhe land in Mr. Fauntleroy's
mime. If this had appeared, tho fraud
would havo been patent to everybody
that know him. Plainly ho conspired
to sell what ho did not own, got tho
Fauntleroy money, then forged and stolo
to put them iu possession of another
man's property,"
"But how?" asked Allen. "It seems
to ine the most foolhardy villain would
not take such risks of instant and certain detection."
"You do not know him," Major Overton said. "He wonld havo risked hell
tbo next hour for money that ho wanted
to spend in this one. And old Isaac,
Jincey's husband, had belonged to him.
Yes, and I remember now it was said
that every week of his lifo the negro
tramped over to see his worthless cx-
niaster. Apart from his knavish tendencies, Stirling hated my father, who,
as a county magistrate, had onco sent
him to jail. This was his revenge, abit-
ter ouo indeed. Tell me, is thore more
than ono reference to him in theso letters?"
"Several, I think. It is, I know, mentioned that ho has gone to Texas, so
cannot testify. He is mentioned only
in tho deeds under the disguiso of
un agent nnd attorney. My groat grandfather refers, too, to his 'disinterested
services' us a reason for sparing him all
annoyanoe iu the matter. So I fancy
Stirling had been at some pains to cover
his track."
An Encounter Witneaacd In the Sunrise

Miaa Laura A. C. Illlghea.
Miss Laura A. 0. Hughes, who was
recently graduated from Tufts college,
has been a noted hospital worker in Boston aud has had charge of a dispensary
in that city. During tho G. A. R. encampment iu Boston she established an
emergency hospital, ouo of tho first in
Boston. Sho has been elected n member
uf tho Massachusetts Medical society.
Besides her regular work in the medical
school Miss Hughes is a graduate of tho
training school for nurses connected with
tho city hospital, she having served a
term in each ward, and owing to efficiency had charge for a long time of
tho male surgical ward. Sho is a member of tho City Hospital club. She studied at St. Margaret's hospital, which is
oue of the most exacting institutions in
the city, and she also took tho teachers'

If you are ever usked to eugage in a
duel with n Japanese, being the challenged party, select any implement
rather than the singlestick, for unless
you nro proficient in thrusts and parries
yon will bo "dono up" in short order.
In feudal times every ublebodied
Japanese wns obliged to become nn expert, swordsman, so that in the event of
war ho could go to the front und do his
sharo of fighting. But witli the improvement in the met hods of warfare,
which the Japanese were quick to adopt,
tho short sword has been relegated to
the buck yard mid the shop of tho bric-
a-brac dealer, and fencing is merely a
pastime known as gek ken. In the civil
war in Japan, 18 years ago, however,
thero were certain companies of guards,
armed with swords, who did some very
effective and bloody work witli them.
There is a club in Honolulu, with
headquarters on Muunakea street, whose
members have an instructor in the uso
of the singlestick. The organization is
6olely for amusement, rather than for
business, though thero is probably a desire ou the part of the leaders to perpetuate the old fashioned methods of their
forefathers in quelling rebellions. Just
now this club, the Sunrise, is without
an instructor, so that thore is but little
practice and no exhibitions.
Tho headquarters of the Sunrise Singlestick club is on tho lower floor of
lhe building occupied by the Japanese
newspaper of tho same name. Through
the kindness of Editor Satto, aud Hira-
oka, business manager of the paper, a
reporter was givcu au opportunity to
witness au exhibition between Yaji-
mai and Karikawa, two expert handlers
of the sticks.
By tho way of introduction the combatants removed thoir kinioims and
donned loose skirts nud a helmet with
strong iron bars across tbe face. Then
they sheiithed their bodies with stiff
bamboo breastplates, Heavily padded
gloves with gauntlets finished the costume. The "short sticks" are about five
feet long, aud nro made of soverulpicces
of bamboo fastened together. There
seemed to bo no call of "time" by a
referee. Tho men stepped to the center
of the room nud saluted each other by
a motion of the arm, aud then ouo uttered u guttural sound signifying his
unwillingness to begin the fray and
they crossed sticks, the point of each
being held on a level with tho neck und
tho handle grasped with both hands.
Yajimai led, und throughout the bout
was acting on tho offensive, while Karikawa braced himself so as to resist uud
ward off any blow that might bn directed toward him. Once he was
thoughtless. Yajimai gave him a crack
on tho helmet tlmt resouuried through
the room. All lhe time tho men were
fencing they wero shouting as if warning each other to look out fur what
might bo coming.
To lhe stranger who is not familiar
with the rules thero scorned to bo no
rest for the men. If ouo should receive
u blow, whicli under ordinary circumstances would warrant his going down
for it few secouds, long enough to recover, it must simply end witli the desire, and his next move will be lo get
back at bis opponent. In thisexhibition
Karikawa, who was rather more stoek-
ily built than his foe, had tho best of
the first of tho fight, hut the end was a
draw, and lho men let-red windless und
with the perspiration pouring from their
The wrist seemed to be the pint cf the
anatomy oftenest aimed at, and whilo
that part of the arm is protected by a
padded gauntlet tho humerus is luuo,
und u strong blow means a heavy welt
und u sore arm. At tbo end of the contest spoken of, here Yajimai curried u
mark which was quite blue. If a blow
on the wrist is sovero enough, it will
disable a fencer, and flu, light ends, and
if it cuuuotbo accomplished in that way
a fencer will raise his stick high above
and inclined toward tho hack of his
bead, very much uftor tho stylo of undent executioners iu thu chopping block
process, und bring it down with all his
strength on his rival's head—if ho can.
Celerity marks every movement of the
fencor, so thut tho observer's eye is taxed
to its utmost to keep truck of Ihe men.
Singlostick fencing mining tho Japanese is so different from anything attempted by tbo whito peoplo that it is
difficult to make comparisons or draw
conclusion.*. If quickness in an aftuck
or purry ia tho secrot of tho game, Yuji-
niai and Karikawa should be entitled
to positions as experts. Their endunr—i.,
too, is remarkable, considering the
thickness of I he clot hiiig worn. Swathed

Experience of an English Cavalryman-
With Indian Treachery.
I was not a religious man, but never
bishop or pursou prayed with greater
fervor. From 1848 till now is a long
time, but I still wake in the night,
though not so often as I once did, after
fighting that battle over again. It was
in 1848, and I belonged to tho Nineteenth Hussars, the one white cavalry
regiment operating in the secund Sikh
war. That war lasted ouly 00 days, but
it had more lighting compressed into it
than many a three years' campaign.
Whilo the suffering was greater in the
Crimea, the fighting never wus harder.
A cavalryman awuy from bis horse is
liko a fish out of water, and they hud
not mounted infantry iu those days, so
it was with a bad grace thut wo, whose
horses bud been lost at Chilliim-Wallah
und Sobrnou, found onrselvos attached to
the Twenty-fourth infantry and guarding supplies while tne regiment pushed
There were two compauios of the
Twenty-fourth and about a troop of our
meu, some of us wounded, but able to do
work which did not necessitate marching. The camp wus iu a deserted temple,
whicli allowed some protection from attack, and also contained a large tank.
This water would have startled pooplo
at home, but wo were glad to have it,
such us it wus. I was uot a ueivous
man; I hud beeu iu the first line at
Sudooltipoor, but when I fouud myself
doing picket duty iu the early morning
ou the outer edge of tho temple boundaries I devoutly wished myself safe beyond the sea, uuder the shadow of St.
Paul's. The moon was shilling brightly, but I stood in the shadow of one of
the two tall pillars peculiar to thoso
temples. It was clear as day elsewhere,
but still as tho grave, aud I would have
welcomed the howls of the jackal, but
they were nil awuy following the army.
No obstruction prevented my seeing in
all directions, but it was this very thiug
which chilled my heart. An open foe
oould be met, but, though for two nights
the sentries at this post had never returned alive, nothing of a struggle had
been heard. The body of one of them
had been fouud lyiug in the temple tank
ouly that morning. Oh, for my good
horso, which I had seen hamstrung by ii
keen Baluchi blade I I hud now been ou
duty an hour, and nothing hud happened. Tbo eurly morning hours, tho hardest of all, wero here, and my mind had
unconsciously gone ou with thu regiment
uud in spirit. I was near the gates of
Lahore, when I thought I heard a luiillh-ii
sound. I olusely scanned tbe ground
around, but I could soe nothing, and,
though I listened, while the perspiration

cool night for Iudiu, the souud was not
I had begun to think Unit I was mistaken aud-tbut lny nervousness had
alarmed mo and was laughing nt my
fears, when once mure I board distinctly
thu sound as of a camel's soft font, ai
most noiseless. Wheeling around thu
next moment, I saw for an instant a figure stealing toward mu in the shadow of
thu temple tower and hardly to be discerned from it. It was between me and
my friends, but what wus it? Much
larger than a man it seemed. Should I
lire and give the alarm, or should I
wait? ln thoso days we hud only liiii/.zlu
loaders, and to fire without tho shot, telling meant to have nothing but the bayonet to depend on. I raised my musket
aud fired. No motiou, and I reloaded
while the guard hurried down from
camp,and all was bust le and prepural ion.
Going cautiously forward wo found
what appeared in the dim light to be a
black bear, but pulling it into tlm moonlight u large crooked blade shone out
from one of its paws. Tho next day we
found u bolo in tho ground, whicli in
the day was covered by a stone slab,

Warm In HU I-riiiscs of the Courage andf
.loudness of General Gibbon—Chief Jo-I
aeph Waa a Fighter Who Teated the )
Qualitiea of Hia Opponent*.
William Woodcock was with tho late j
General Gibbon,tiie famous Indian fighter, for more than five years while he was J
tho commander of the deparf-tnent of the ]
Dakotiis.  Ho was a civilian iu the serv-
ico and was made a confidant of tho gen-J
oral  and  the  other officers  in some of"
the councils  to whicli ouly the  favored
few wero admitted, Such a council was (j
the one held lho evening bofore the battle of tho Big Hole, when the command
of General Gibbon engaged three timesi
the number of warriors under command'
of Chief Joseph, the most crafty lighter!
who ever crossed the path of Uncle Sam.'
Tho battle was a victory for tho whites.
"If anybody tells yon that General.
Gibbon wasn't a fighter, just tell hiiiil
he lies aud charge it lo me," said Wil-J
lium yesterday. "General Gibbon wus"
all rigid. 1 remember tbo evening he
called the officers together and advised
with them about the buttle of the next
day. Ho had sent out scouts, und they
had came hack aud said there were
'heap Indians' ahead. They hadu 't found
us mauy tepees as usual, but they had i
learned somehow that there were as |
many as 10 men to the tepee, and they
estimated the Indians as several hundred, I don't remember just bow mauy.
General Howard was expected in a short
time, and General Gibbon called the officers together and said to then.:
" 'Boys,   tbe  Indians  ure  out there
ahead of us uud tbe question is whether y
we  will  go after  them or  not.    Yon
kuow, if  wo wait for General Howard

Before the next issue of tho Mail
the people will have decided what is
tti he the fate of the nation for the
next live years with regard to the
administration of public affairs—
whether they wish to perpetuate one
of the most incompetent and cor-
l'.'sb ; rapt governments on the face of the
earth, whose "offense is so rank it
smells to heaven*,'' or whether they
wish to consign it to that oblivion
it sn richly deserves und replace it
by representatives who by their
principle and record guarantee honest, capable and eoonomio government. While thc present government deserves, and will probably
receive, the rebuke ol nil provinces
alike, British Columbia should bej
especially emphatic in its condemnation, for, while it bus received
less recognition than other provinces at the hands of the government^ lias contributed vastly more I
per capita towards its support and,,
as the sequel shows, towards the
ninny schemes, fraudulent and otherwise, by whicli its members and
adherents, us well as other provinces, have benefited. Among the
many evidences of incompetency
and neglect which has characterised the present government thc following mny Ue- cited for the benefit I
of ihe skeptical:
It commenced its career by fail
ing to secure the reciprocity treaty I
with the I'nited States, to get authority to make which was the excuse for thc last general election.
It failed to bring tbe negotiations!
with Newfoundland to a SavnrabJe
termination, though circumstances! j
were ripe for such ti consummation.
lt failed to pass an insolvency law.
It ignored memorials sent from .
The Last of the First.
This issue of The Namaimo Mail
completes its first year of publication, the first number having been
issued June 32, 1805. Judging by
the standard of patronage, we are
forced to the conclusion that our
efforts to establish a representative
paper havo at least been measurably successful, Handicapped, however, in several ways not necessary
to mention, we confess to shortcomings not within our power to overcome, while at the same time we
claim to have done our duty by our
patrons as far as circumstances
would permit, and it is gratifying
to note that to that extent our
efforts havo been nnd continue to
be supported by an appreciative
public. Advancing from u Weekly
to a Semi-Weekly within one year
is guarantee that Tun Man. will
keep abreast of the times and continue to improve and extend its
usefulness as nie.ans and opportunity permit, although, from present
indications, no promises on tiiis line
can now be made. Thanking the
public for their patronage in the
past, we hone as we shall endeavor ,, ll, 'K'.1"*"-'-1'      ,,,-,,, ,     , -

"What 1 contend is that, before

with the oase should be investigated sorb to give the government of
Canada something io net upon.
Until this is done, I say the government cannot aet without putting
themselves in a iulse position. . . ,
There is an admission on the part
of the Manitoba government themselves that this government has the
power to interfere, and this parliament has the right to interfere by
legislation, but, this is a power

"Bock" beer is the keynote of history
of beer browing as it is understood by
the people of this day It is generally
supposed that boor is of distinctively
German origin, whereas it is a fact that
boor was brewed by the men of many
nationalities in many parts of tho world
oeutnries beforo the Christian era. The
Egyptians, tho Greeks, the Romans,
made beer from com and barley in those
ancient times. Tho lager beer nf tlm
Germans was n Bavarian product aud
"bock" beer originated in Bavaria.
We havo beard a number of stories as
to the origin of tho term "buck" beer,
and wliilo Ihey all vary as to detail, they
uro us a rule correot. When beer was
first brewed in Bavaria and for a loug
limn afterward in thut and all other
purls nf tho world, ieo formed no part
in the manufacture, though if was vory
necessary that it should be fermented
and stored inncold temperature, As ice
was not relied upon to mako this cold
air und as artilicial refrigeration was not
dreamed of, brewing was done only in
oold weather, and the beer was stored In
chill vaults underground. Hero it was
left to uge unlil some timo in spring,
say the latter part nf April nr the beginning of May, when the vaults were
thrown open and tbo thirsty publio was
regaled with a pure, wholesome draft of
the foamy beverage. And as the first
issue from these vaults was stronger aud
liable to go tn the head, lho people were
said to hu "hocked j" hence the name.
Another version of the story is flint
When the vaults wero thrown open, a
buck jumped nut aud that gave rise to
the name and also to the widely advertised "William" goat who adorns the
"bock" beer signs of tbo present day.
But "bock" beer season is a time of
sentiment to the Germans, and other
people havo imbibed the sentiment with
the dark and heavy drink. They want
"bock" beer ut tiio proper time and
they will drink it then uud enjoy it.—

Throughout tho late summer and autumn of iso? the imperial court was
more stately than ever before. Tho old
nobility became assiduous in their attendance, and, as one of the empress' lu-
dles in waiting is said to have remarked,
tho court "received good company,"
Ou ids return Napoleon bad found Josephine's extravagance to be as unbounded as over, but he could not well coin-
plain, because, although fnr the must

Personal Responsibility.
The eighteenth chapter of   Ezokiel is
in part usod to illustrate "Personal Responsibility."   A portion of tho quoted
verses reads:
When the son hnth done that which is lawful und right, and hnth kept all my Statutes,
und bath done them, lie shall surely live. Thc
soul tluit slnneth, it shall die. The son shall
not bear the iniquity of the father, neither
■hall the father boor the iniquity of the son.
Tiie righteousness of the righteous shall be
Upon him. and the wickedness of the wicked
shall be upon him.
Uut when the righteous turneth away from
bis righteousness und eiitnmitteth iniquity,
slid dneth iifcurdiiig to all thc abominations
thut the wicked man diielh, Bhall he live? All
his righteousness that he hnth done shall not
be mentioned. In Ids trespass that he bath
trespassed, and in his sin thut be bus sinned,
in them shall be dio.
To Merchants.
The ninety-first lesson of the book is
of interest tn merchants, us well us ehil-
I'reu, uud is entitled "Results of Dishonesty iu Business." It is from the
eighth chapter of Amos.
The Ideal Woman.
Twenty-one verses of tho thirty-first
chapter of Proverbs are used to describe
"Tho Ideal Woman." They aro here reproduced :
Who can find a virtuous woninn?
For her price is far above rubies.
The heart of ber husband Uulb safely trust in
Hu that be shall have no need of spoil.
Klio will do him goud and not evil
All the days ef her life.
She seckcth wool and flux.
And wnrlicth willingly with ber hands.

TO BOOM THE  L   A. W.   io* board wiU be tne reappointment of
I     President  Elliott  is convinced  that
the numerical strengtli of the league is
j not what it should  be, considering   the
! great   number   of   wheelmen   in   this
country ut the present time, and lie intends  to nse every effort   to  place  the
membership at  00,0(10 before  the next
annual meeting of   lhe national assembly.
The chief consuls throughout the different divisions will be advised of President Elliott's pluu un the subject in
order to work accordingly.
The conference held between President Coleman of the cycle board of
trade and President Elliott nf the
League of American Wheelmen indicates that thu latter is determined to
take immediate steps to seek a closer
co-operation between these two bodies,
whicli ho snys he feels will be beneficial
to the best iuterests of cycling.
Rnad improvement, iucroused membership unil tho protection of wheelmen's rights will be President Elliott's
chief objects this yoar. He is planning
to inaugurate a more aggressive policy
iu every division, so that the work of
tho organization will be curried on ou a
more uniform system, that will bear
gronter results than have ever beon obtained ^eforo.—New York World.
Ills Election Was Popular— Likely Now
That Professional Riders Will Huve
,'renter Opportunities — Dissatisfaction
Hecate,,, of Reduced  Value of Prizes.
The affairs of the League of American
Wheelmen, guided by new officers, will
be conducted ou broad und radical lines
this year. The elect inn of Sterling Elliott of Massaehnsetls to the presidency
gives universal satisfaction, uud while
from some sections opposition developed
against his election there is 11 feeling
that his administration will be active
aud progressive.
As a result of tho changes made in
the constitution of tlic league, tho affairs of the organization will be curried
ou in a more conservative way this
This fact will be particularly noticeable in racing matters The action of
the  national   assembly   iu   abolishing
classes A uud B and substituting in
their stead purely amateur and professional departments, while uiiythiug but
satisfactory to the old class B racing
men, can have but one result, and that
will be an iucrease in the professional
ranks. Whilo the assembly had no hesitancy in reinstating all tho class B
men to tbe amateur ranks the amateur
riders feel that this move was unjust,
and thut the league legislators could
more properly have transferred tho men
in this class to the professional ranks,
where it has beeu admitted they justly
Racing men who have been racing
for prizes valued at ♦100, with tbo privilege of traveling to meets wherever
they chose ami having thoir expeuscs
paid, will naturally demur ut the
changed condiiinn nf affairs and refuse
to rido for prizes reduced to $!if).
Their riding district is now limited to
100 miles, ami they uro unable to either
receive salaries or accept expenses, and,
accordingly, the noted riders in class B
lust year will ride fnr cash prizes this
The action of I lie L. A. W. iu reducing the prizo value I'm- amateurs from
$60 to tjillo has been criticised adversely.
Tbe league aims to pminute and foster u
purely amateur class, and racing folk
maintain Hint this fuel alnne should induce some liberality in dealing with the
uuiutcur class.
The racing men who were rated as
second and third class men last year ure
rejoiced over their admission to the
amateur ranks, as they now see u chance
of prize winning.
It seems likely thut Charley M. Murphy and Eddie Raid will go abroad this
year to do sumo racing early iu the season. These riders, with other class B
meu, havu taken up bicycle racing as 11
menus uf livelihood, and must race for
cash; su thut unless somo professional
events wilh liberal purses materialize
this year, it is I1kelytl1.il a big latch of
class B riders will go abroad, The manufacturers wliu have supported teams in
this country in the past are dispused to
send racing meu abroad tu raco as professionals, but seem reluctant lu engage
them for thut. purpose in this oountry.
Tho race meot promoters throughout
the country, who huve catered tu class
11 racing men and local-class A men in
the pasl, will now bo compelled, fur the
pnrpuse of holding their meets, tu substitute professional events, uud they
can, instead of offering diamond prizes,
H was the custom lust year, award cash
to tho same value.
The change iu tiio racing conditions
demands a greater recognition uf the
professional rider by the League of
American Wheelmen. Theso riders havo
received scant attention from tho league,
but under tho existing cuuditiou uf uf
fairs professional events will likely attain the prominence uf class B, and all
tho league clubs will, us a result, promote such events.
President Elliott announces thut before he selects uny of his committees lie
intends to consult tne various chief consuls throughout the country in relation
to chousing the must desirable men for
tho position. Mr. Elliott's plan is to
secure committeemen who will make
their respective departments as piomi
uent as the racing department.
The soloction uf a chairman of the
racing board this year is exciting considerable interest. George 11. Gideon of
Philadelphia, who hud charge of the
racing interests lust year, und Who
managed the racing affairs iu su satis
factory a manner, is considered ihu best
fitted man for the ofilce, but it is a well
known fact that Gideon volod and

Mrs. WUUs   Will   Establish   a  Bakery  la
Circle City.
Mrs. Willis of Taeoma, the first white
woman to attempt a journey through
the wildest and most dangerous part ol
Alaska, left the other day on the steamer Willapa for Circle City, situated on
Yukon river, just inside the arctio rim.
She made tbe journey last year and
found uu admirable opening for a bakery,
and returned for the necessary supplies.
She tukes two sleds, heavily loaded,
which will be hauled over the snow a
thousand miles by dugs. With her own
hands she Mill fell trees and build two
oauoes iu which to cross Lake Linder-
niau and go down twu rivers to Circle
City. River navigation is exceedingly
dangerous, and iu several places it is
necessary to curry tbe euiiues iiruund high
waterfalls. Speaking uf the venture she
said -.
"Yes, it is quite nn undertaking, but
there is no real danger. Hundreds of
weak men successfully accomplished the
same jnurnoy. All it requires is pluck,
energy and plenty of nerve. Dogs afford
mo ample protection from wild animals,
1 see uo reason why a woman should not
bravo tho perils of a short journey like
this to make 11 'stake.'
"My husband is an invalid, and the
opportunity for the establishment of a
bakery at Circle City is good. Any honest, persevering woman can engngo in u
profitable and respectable business there
uud return iu u few years with thousands
of dollars."

Cathode Rays Not Used—Electric Lights
Used by a System of Propulsion aud
Magnetic Attraction—Brain Pulsations
Keen—His Hypnotic Power.
Tiie human bruin has been photographed. In the rivalry of scientists excited by Roentgen's application of the
cathode X rays to photography Dr. Carle-
ton Simon steps forward and exhibits
a picture of his own bruin, obtained
from 11 process in which the cathode ruy
is uut u factor, It may be said, however, that 1 be widespread interest attracted In Roentgen's discovery aud the
experiments of Edison preparatory to
bis attempt to photograph tho brain, as
chronicled from duy tn day, woro the
incentives that lod Dr. Simou, after
nearly three years of labor, to bring to
bear his whole power on 11 final attempt
to capture the prize of honor iu being
the first to phntngruph the brain of a
living being.
Dr. Simon, who is a graduate of the
New York university, a pupil of Charcot of Paris, and a member of the New
York polyclinio, thus tells tho story nf
his effurts to photograph the brain and
his eventual success:
"The bruin, yuu know, has been my
especial study, aud I huve worked independently in u quiet way for nearly
three years to photograph it. I first
sought to accomplish my purpose by
passing 11 cnutimious current of electricity through the brain, illuminating
it. by the spark, aud theu I tried tbe interrupted current, but this produced a
paralysis of the brain, rendering senseless the subjects. The principle is illustrated by a flash of lightning on a dark
night, which carries images through
which it travels to the eye. From this
indeed it was suggested tu me thnt the
same ideu might bo applied tu the
brain. Again, you know, the firefly is
made almost transparent by its tiny
"Now, finding that hashes of electricity passing through the body form
a circuit at the smallest possible points,
1 found that instead of passing directly
through the bruin it traveled through
tho ski 1 around tho head, aud if, ou
the ut'ii- hand, the flush was drawn
through tiie bruin by magnetic attraction, paralysis took place.
"I then attempted to use the alternating, interrupted current, bnt fuund thut
insulation uf the skin was impossible.
I tried to i'ullow nature, as in the firefly, iu the pruductiuu uf transiridescent
rays. After a great deal of labor I succeeded iu equalizing tu a considerable
degree the average between the rapidity
with which light travels aud the rapid
ity with which sound travels. It has
seemed to mo in my experiments that
whenever llie rays of light traveled
slowly or nearer to the rate at which
sound travels this same light would in
some uuexpluinuble manner appear to
combine with waves of .-mind.
"I am still far fruni having perfected
the instrument by whicli I am able to
photograph the bruin. Of course the
moro solid structures are reflected ou
thu plates, and I found that tho less exposure I gave to the photographic plate
the easier I apparently was able to
photograph translucent material.
"Tho rays I use, I uso in conjunction
with sound, and they aro electric rays,
so fur as the light is concerned. I have
attempted in this instance to photograph my own bruin, not being able to
procure any ono wluim I thought would
be appropriate."
Dr. Simou said that he used an ordinary camera, with platinum plutos,
subjected neither to beat nor to any
especial chemical treatment. The time
of exposure was limited tn two minutes.
Ordinarily, tbe doctor said, tho time of
exposure would bo regulated by the
depth of material through which the
light must puss.
Pur the present Dr. Simou will not
make known the details uf his apparatus. "I do nut like," he said, "to
withhold it from the public, but I do-
siro to moro fully perfect it before making tlic details known."
He pleaded guilty to the suggestion
that ii would bo 11 source of satisfaction
to ucoenmplish himself the perfecting
of the process which he lias discovered,
This much he did say:
"I produce the effect by a traction of
the light uud prnpulsiou tlimugh the
bruin substance. At the timo uf photographing the whole internal chamber
uf the bruin is lighted up."
"In the deeper hypnotic sleeps u suggest inn winch is given to the right side
of the brain, fur instance, can be transferred by lhe uiduf a magnet to tho left,
side.  That this is n fact has beeu proved
by charcut ami other experimentalists.
Tlmt fact, uf course, I attempted to
study out, nnd in the pursuit of bruin
photography the influence of tho magnet nu tho brain mulecules crossed my
miud with vivid force. Therefore iu my
experiments I used tho magnet, uud believe it essential to the success of the
"But this lust experiment, in which
I photographed my own bruin, was uuly
an experiment after all, for I did nut
havo elaboruto apparatus. What I had
was very crude, aud I intend, bofore
making further statements touching the
mutter, to cnustrnct uu apparatus whioh
shall bo scientifically correct.
"The principles I havo endeavored to
follow, ' the doctor continued, "is that
the vibriitiuiis of sonud seem to increase,
or do increase, as cau be shown iu 11
large funnel tapering to ti point. They
increase, in fact, in sncli velocity, uud
become so intense in the cone or funnel
whicli I use iu my experiments that
they aro able-with the aid of 11 needle to
pierce a quarter inch board.
"in my experiment I used ti magnet
on euch side of the bead. The magnet
nearer the cabinet, being stronger and
larger thnn the othor, draws the lesser resistive influence toward it. The sound
which enters the head tit the position of
the smaller magnet apparently either
follows the magnetic curreut or is
thrown through tho head by sheer molecular force, the distribution being, as
fur as my experiments huve shown, prevented by magnetic influence. It produces a distinct vibration in tbe parts
through which it enters and is tarried.
The light which I use, but as to the nature of which I will not at present speak,
is carried through the head either by
the vibrations uf sound ur nf magnetic
influence. This theory I have not hud
time to sufficiently enter upon."
Iu conclusion, the doctor suid: "I uiu
at tho commencement, My discuvery is
not consequent un the application of the
cathode ray to photography. My idea
preceded it, hut of course 1 huve lately
been inspired to push my experiments."
For two days and 11 half the doctor
worked uninterruptedly, save 11 couple
of huurs fur sleep, when his tired brain
dreamed uf its uwu likeness. The work
had not been without attendant dangors.
Many siuiill animals were sacrificed in
the cause uf science. Even the fiual and
successful effort was made with nu assurance thut tbe camera might uut huld
the picture nf a dead man. Thuugh in a
measure satisfied that the process was
one by which the braiu could be photographed without risk of life, it may be
stated that the experimeutor selected
himself us his subject tbut no other life
might be endangered.
George Francis Train had consented
to sit, but thu doctor finally decided not
to permit him to do so.
As u matter uf fact, the success ef the
experiments was ne less iu that the
operation was without sensation than in
the reproduction of the brain picture.
So fur as the use of the apparatus was
concerned, the doctor consented to say
that the light was thrown f rum one side
of the head against it, as in a inagio
lantern, while the attractive force was
at the other.
He had arranged mirrors so that he
might observe the effects, aud was thns
enabled tu view his own brain. It was
lighted up so that he saw the interior
aud even tbe pulsations. His sensations,
so far ns ho had any, wero at the
strangeness uf the phenomena aud emotions of success rather than any physical
effect pruduoed by the forces he manipulated, and which wero controlled by
electric buttons, the camera being exposed at the instant thut tho light was
directed at the head.
Tbe doctor is a yonng man, being not
more than !io years ef age; is tall, slender and dark. lie lias a broad, high
forehead, topped by bushy black hair,
and wears 11 scraggly, pointed beard.
He possesses strong hypnotic powers,
which he has used successfully, though
be is reticent on that subject, lis indeed
he is modost in speaking of himself,
Uls Hypnotic Power.
Through his hypnotic powers Dr.
Simon was brought prominently to notice in August lust. A Mrs. Susan Irwiu of Columbus, O., wus the subject
of his treatment. Six years beforo, she
bad lost the power of speech through,
nervous shock. Burglars entored hor
hnme iu Broad street, Cnlumbns. and
their prowling about the room in which
she slept awakened her. She uttered a
scream, bnt was menaced by the pointing nf a revolver at her bend. She fainted, and the burglars departed with their
She was subsequently found in an unconscious state, in whicli she remained
for two days. Un recovering, it was
fuund that she had lust her speech. The
services of local practitioners were unsuccessful in restoring it. With her bus
baud she went tu Europe uud was treated by the must skilled specialists of
Heidelberg and London. While abroad
her husband died. He laid spent $35,000
iu his efforts to havo her cured.
Sbe had read uf hypnotism, and as a
last resort resolved to try it. She went
to Dr. Simon, The history of her case
being ascertained, she was subjected to
the hypnotic influence, being thrown
first into the cataleptic state, then the
lethargic state and finally somiiiunbu-
lislic, iu which condition she was able
tn receive suggestions. Shewas made to
re-enact the scenes of the night nf tbe
burglary, and finally given imperative
instructions that when sbe awuke lhe
following morning she Was to talk aloud.
That was un Aug. IS.
The doctor said to her, "Yuu will
have cumploto control of your vnice, und
ynu will never luso it again."
Mrs. Irwin went home. On awaking
next morning, sho resolved to speak
alnuil, and In her amazement beard tho
sound uf her own voice fnr the first time
in six years. Rushing tu her landlady,
she exclaimed:
"My Gud I I have got my voice back
again I"
The vuico sounded strange. The inns
cles nf tho throat vibrated quickly with
the unusual exercise, but the vuico wus
normal, thuugh weak.
Dr. Sim,ni, in speaking uf the case at
tbe time, said:
"I found that sho was suffering from
somo kind of a paralysis uf the vocal
chords of the throat, brought uu not by
local conditions, though being of central
uervous origin. I knew that no resnlt
ronld be obluiued by local treatment,
aud I therefore sought a cure by means
of tho nervous system. By hypnotism I
fuund that I oould control tho nerves
which readied tbe throat.
"Do not think that 1 bolievo in hypnotism as a panacea or a cure all, but
I do believe that it is a physician's duly
to uso any remedy that will gain (he
end iu view, irrespective of what the
means are. I used it iu hor case, diroct-
ly I had gone into her history and fuund
all other means to cure had failed. I
used tho system practiced by Professor
Charcot."—Now York Horald.
