arise for decision, and thesecircum-
stances are iu this case left lo speculation."
The conclusion, therefore, to be
drawn from the judgment is thai
the Privy Council has decided that,
under tne authority of the B. N. 'A.
act, section U2, No. 16, "matters of
a merely local or private nature,"
the provinces have the righl tu pass
laws regarding local option, and
that the words, "merely local or
private nature,' when used in connection with provincial matters,
have reference to localities or municipalities within the provinces,
and not to a whole province as representing a collection or unii of
municipalities. 'I he power, therefore, of ibe provinces is a limited

chance of a shut to any advantage. What
made it worse for thc sa-ealled raiders
was the want of water. A spruit (small
stream) ran a few hundreds of yards

obtaining the water they so much needed. \\Y met the old Hutch farmer who

That Five-Acre Wiseacre.
Editor .Mail: In last night's issue of ibe Free Press Mr. Mclnnes
is referred to in a very scurrilous
manner by a no less prominent person than Five Acres, simply because
he dared mention Mr. 1). \V. Gordon's naine. Surely the difference
between Mr. Mclnnes and the late
Mr. Gordon is not greater than the
difference between our Lord and
His followers; and if they were deprived of the right of mentioning
His name, what would become of
Christianity? Still, if one judged
from the source from which it emanated, or at least take the signature
for granted, be would not be surprised, for altho' there are good and
wise men on live acre lots, there are
others who display anything but
common sense. When a man pays
an ex irbitant price for five acres
of gravel land, I ean hardly see how
he could be held responsible for any
opinion. As to Mr. llaslam doing

At. Hie close of the meal the two men
Went out together, pausing 1'nr a minute
at the half open front, door to watch the
dashing raindrops vex the limpid pool
spread overall the yard. One of the long
summer storms bad broken since morning. The sky was a dun cup, without
fold or i-i ft. Thc slightest hollows held
such rainy runnels as assured all who
knew the lay of the land that the creeks
must bo at flood. It wius full of sharp
hills, fruit which the waters ran fast as
they fell. Already above the plash of the
rain came lhe roar and boom of torrents
in the lowlands. Hut young Fauntleroy
stepped without the hall door and said:
".Major Overton, 1 feel ibis intrusion
of mine to bo so impertinent that if your
woman will return me my own garments I will make my way somewhere
else lill the storm is over. "
The grim ghost of a smile played on
Major Overton's face.
"That would be suicide, which is the
worst form of cowardice," he said.
"Either side of ns is a stream that now

crippled you would surely drown.
Kidgeley's door can let no man go out
to his death. Stay and bo sure of your
welcome until you can go in safety. "
"If only you would let me speak," the
oilier began. A gesture slopped him.
Major Overton had raised bis hand, a
look of pain unutterable upon his face.
After a minute he suid slowly,as though
weighing each word:
"It is not, my wish to embarrass yon
or add to your discomfort, but surely
you must understand that of all men
you are the bust with whom 1 can discuss—anything."
"Why. because of that old trouble?
Believe me, Major Overton, whatever
imputation there may have been in tho
past, I do not believe"— Young Fauntleroy burst out before he could be silenced. His pause, when it came, waa
due to amazement The old face fronting
him was rage incarnate, Ihe old hands
clinched hard. By a supreme effort Major Overton controlled himself and said,
half turning away:
"Belief amounts to nothing, certainly
as against deeds. It is just possible that
you came in ignorance of some things
that havo gone before. Pray pardon mu
if I ask to be spared further reference to
all painful subjects. Be simply the
stranger within my gate for thu rest of

By midnight the storm had sol-lied nnt
its wrath. Morning broke fair over the
radiant, new washed world. The rays of
dawn were struggling through the window panes ere Allen Fauntleroy dropped
Hfileep When at last his (.-yes opened,
the sun was high in heaven. His host
stood at his bi-dshlc, grayer, harder,
sterner looking in tbe light of the golden day than in that of rainy skies. Yd
■till his voice was a well bred monotone,
bare of all feeling.
"Pardon nm for disturbing yon. I fear
you slept poorly," bu said. "But a
friend bus come in search of you, and I
had no choice but to wake yon. Ib-re
comes Jubilee with your boots. He will
help you to dress und wait on you at
breakfast. Take your time. There is no
need of hurry. I will lake cure that your
friend does not grow impatient."
"Who is it—Hawkins? I thought he'd
look me up if the horse got back without me. I beg you not to let him get at
that precious old brandy. He will stay
till ho drains the bowl," Young Fauntleroy said in an effort to speak lightly.
He was far from feeling so. Al 1 his sleep
had been a phantasmagoria of trouble
of thick clouds, of swellingwators, with
Daro in tho midst of them, swept forever away in their flood The night

tho fact that in thoir all too brief encounter sho had taken captive his heart

came that sho ueodod help, to remember
that, she had in him a faithful friend.
But how aohiovo so muoh, guarded as
she was? After breakfast he must go
away, and throughout the meal mammy
would certainly attend him. If be could
get her away—a voice broke through his
musings. Jubilee, black and slim, with
woolly head and big upturned eyes, stood
iu the door, saying:

Notwithstanding, when young Fauntleroy sat dawdling over rolls, coffee and

could not forbear raising to his lipB tho
slim rosy lingers that lay fluttering iu

"Why should I remember you?" Dare
asked, half turning away. "Next week
you will forget my existence, except
maybe as the heir to a claim that troubles yon. Ah, you sec, I know something
of family affairs. Believe me, 1 am not
so disloyal to our side of the quarrel as

"1 am," Fauntleroy said, getting
quickly to his feet and flinging his sound
arm around her. "Dare! Dare! I love
you better than my life. I did not mean
to tell you just yet. lt is so sudden. But

mine as you knelt, an angel of rescue,

"Yon may have the opportunity elsewhere," Major Overtoil said from the
door behind him. Hawkins darted
through it and caught young Fauiitlo-
roy's arm, crying out:
'Allen, Allen, are you mad? Come
away at once. You should never have
come here, though," turning to tho old
man, who stood a statue of white fury.
"I swear, Major Overton, ho did not
know everything."
With one stride the old man canght
Dare's arm and essayed lo drag her from
the room. Tic girl shook herself free of
his hold and said, with eyes outblaziug
his own:
"I am no child, grandfather. Even

through his arm as though to lead her

not iu anger, and said to her young
'' (Joodby. Go away, please, and forget
that you ever came.''
"1 go, since I must, but I will never
give you up so long as we both do live,"
Allen Fauntleroy said Even as bespoke
sho vanished. Hawkins caught his arm
und drew him away to the vehicle waiting outside the door. As they took their
seats in it Major Overton stepped over
the threshold, gave them a courteous
adieu, then laid his hand lightly in detention upon the reins and said slowly:
"Mr. Fauntleroy, 1 give you safe conduct from my home. If over you set foot
ou it again, your life will pay for it."
"I cannol 90, Mr, Fnuntteroy.   / am an

teeth.  Faimtloroy sprang to the girl's
side, caught her hand iu his and cried
" Major Overton, you—no man shall

marked Kidgeley's boundary line, Alle.11
Fauntleroy sat silent, leaning in his
corner of the carriage. Hawkins spoke
once or twice, but getting no answer relapsed likewise into silence.
When they had splashed through tho
swift stream, still flush and palely turbid. Fauntleroy said, druwiug a long
"I conld not hear it upon his ground,
but now in heaven's name tell mo what
all this means."
"Seems to me a matter of names,
Fauntleroy versus Overtoil — Overton
versus Fauntleroy," Hawkins said, folding his arms and sticking his chiu iu
tho air.
The other looked at him impatiently
and said very low:
"Don'* fence, Hawkins. Tho time for
that is past Tell me now, 011 your honor, the whole cause of grievance that old
man cherishes. "
"Why didn't you ask him? Y'ou had

so struck with the girl you forgot everything else. 'Pon my life, Fauntleroy,
you must havi- rushed things. It is not
quite common to find a fellow proposing

could make the riffle there—run away
with the girl—what a card it would bo

and with her thus well in hand tho syndicate would grab at the property ut our

For answer Fauntleroy called to tho
driver:  "Stop! Open the door!"
"What's wrong?" asked Hawkins impatiently as the man clambered down
►0111 his seat.
"Nothing," said Fauntleroy, "only 1

shifted a trifle under the scrutiny, but

as odd as the old one back thore," nod-
iling behind them "You know I warned you against going there—as yourself,

"Why wius I not told?" tho young
man asked sternly. The other laughed
disagreeably, saying:
"Well, now, it's a bit awkward to say
to a fellow in plain English, "Your father was a thorough paced scoundrel.'
But that's the frozen fact of tho case."
"How did lie prove it?" The tone was
even, but Hawkins saw that the other's
eyes had begun to blaze. He drew a little more away before he said:
"It's a long story. Did you never hear
how he died?"
"He w:is drowned beforo ho was 30,
five years after 1 was born—at least that
is what I have been told and believe."
"Correct, not u doubt of it In fact, I
BOW it myself, and somebody elso was

"No. Not my mother?"

—Arthur Symons,
When ladies go alligator hunting,
Ihey should clearly understand that
people whom they find and associate
with freely iu an Alabama bayou should
not always be bowed to in Piccadilly.
This sounds simple—an axiom, in fact—
but. because Miss Wilcoxii did such un
uncalled for bowing, things happened
which put two most respectable families in a condition of open fury, aud I
earned dislike as lhe origin of evil. As
a matter of accuracy, my yachtmate
was far moro guilty than I. Ho had
gone it-fishing one day in his shirt, and
had spent eight hours sandwiched between wind and water, and had naturally returned with his legs bitten red
raw by the sun. Ho developed a temper
in cousoquenco that would have made
him shunned iu the pit, and I was driven into 11 deed of temporary separation.
Our yacht was then in the bayou of
Bon Secours, which opens off Mobile
bny.audihoman with the sunburned legs
said with many adjectives that movement for him was out of the question.
Ho remarked that lie wonld stay on the
sloop and fish for gaff tops'ls (as they
call the catfish), and cavallns and sheep-
heads and sharks and whatever else he
could got, and said that polito conversation was 11 strain to him. Ho slated that
(aircrew (of 0110 negro) would makea
suitable butt for his future remarks,
and put forward tho suggestions that I
should take myself off. "Go and hunt
alligators up tho lagoons, and livo a savage in the swamps, nud eat crackers and
Irout, and catch fever if thoro's any
throwing about," said tho man wilh
the sunburned legs. "That'll be about
yonr furm." So I pitied tbo nigger and
went off—in pulo pink pyjamas and the
ten foot yawlboat.
The subsequent sail down the lagoon,
under a brazen torrent of sunshine,
came as ono of the seven pleasures of
life. There was 11 great wall of trees on
tho landward side, rearing itself from
tho water's lip in a hedge of undergrowth. To southward, from over the
rambling line of dunes, with thoir
fringes of scrub grass and palmetto,
came tho dim bellow of the surf ns it
creamed and crumbled en tho white
gulf suud. And down tho silver ripples
of the lagoon thero blew uu air, faintly
salt,which chilled the wet cotton against
one's spine.
The lagoon bayed to an end, and there
opened out another channel to be punted
through, 11 narrow winding canal of
twirls   uud   branches   through  quaking
marsh laud, a waterway rustling with
fish and ablaze with yellow lilies. Cardinal birds peered at ouo from tho bushes,
and purple herons thrust out curious
beaks from tho grass clumps. It was all
very peaceable and extremely hot.
Then there came a lako with islands,
u lake of water called by conrtosy fresh,
whicli was lemon yellow to look through
and black to look upon. It swarmed
with fish, which took tho hook and were
supped upon for their sins, and because
thero was no whisky in tho yawlboat for
dilution it served us a bevcrago iu all
its sulphurous uastiness. Then the suu
dippod behind tho forests at tho back,
nud night followed liko the shutting
down of a box. One mounted a bullsoyo
lantern on tbo hatband, which would
shine dowu a rifle's sights, and put out
again in tho boat, puddling stealthily. It
is not always easy to distinguish between a firefly aud the gleam of un alligator's eye, and shots ure apt to be
wastod and the neighborhood scared.
But ou that night fortune held, and the
lead went home six several times. Then
the dead wero made more safely dead
with tho ax, and their slayer laid him
down to sleep ou tho boat's floor with
his head besido tho ccntorboard trunk.
So passed my first night away from
the sloop. The morning wus occupied in
the process of skinning, aud then once
more ou toward tho east. Thero were
more hikes und more canals all full of
thoir own new woudors, uud ever away
iu the distance ou tho starboard hand
was the noise cf the surf as it broke
whoro tho logs from the gulf rivers bristle iu the milky sand. Iu into afternoon
I came to u higoon with 11 wooded island
in it, and among the treos of tho island, whon thoy grow distinct from one
another, I saw a man.
I bore down ou him under sail, fnr
thero was a spanking hreeza coming in
from tho soa, and when wo wero withiu
hailing distaueo tho boat grounded.
"Do you want to land here?" he
"I don't mind if I do."
"Then shove off again nnd drop down
to the tail of the island and luff up
sharp whore you see u harked tree ou
tho beach. There's no deep water until
you come to thore."
I did as ho told me, put the boat's
nose on a small beach of pebbles and
waited, smoking. I waitod half an hour
maybe, and then he strolled up very
leisurely with his thumbs iu the wuist
belt of his trousers, I can't say ho
seemed overpleased to see me. He asked
with point what I had oomo for.
I told him, nud then said, "By the
way, you're u varsity man, aren't you?"
"Yes, Oxford—tho Houbo. You uro,
too, I've a notion. "
"From  over tho way—Pembroko."
"Well, if you'vo nothing better on,
leave your bout nud come up to my
place. Sorry I didn't tumble to you at
first, but then you don't look over respectable just now. Am you much down
on your luck?"
"Oh, I'm not hunting alligators professionally.   I'm here for amusemout."
I concluded ho was there because he
had got into trouble with the law of the
land elsewhere, but I did not suggest
this because it is considered rude to
touch upon family man01 s uninvited.
But after a minute he broached the
topic himself. "I'm hero for amusement
myself," he said. "I'm hero permanently."
By this timo we hnd got into a bit of
a clearing inside the wall of trees—u
patch of sorghum, another of sweet potatoes, another of corn with stalks that
stood ten feet high, and a goodly planting of green tobacco plants, with shambling palmetto growth at the back.
"Faith," I said, "you've queer notions of a pleasure resort. "
"I'm a man," ho said, "with r.11
imagination. Consequently I make a
most comfortable hermit. Come in and
take a hammock. Where's our eight on
the river?"
I told him, and we went on hard at
boating shop till the sun went ont.
I began to have a strong idea Ihat the
man was mad, but I stopped my hunger
on his victuals for all Ihat, and then relit my pipo aud went un with the talk.
From tho other side of the clearing
cnnie the noises of lhe night—the chatter of katydids and rustle of jarllios, the
love song of tree crickets and toads, the
deep reed notes of frogs iu their patches
of marsh, and through all mingled the
heavy diapason of the surf, from across
the dunes, aud the forest, und the black
waters of tbo lake, mellowed by its passage through tho purple night. 1 am tho
most practical and unpoetioal creature
in the world, as 11 general thing, but the
influence of it was too heavy for me. I
started on to chat again about tho boats,
aud about women and yachts and books
and tho other interests nf tho outer
world, but the things fell flat, and presently the talk died out of us altogether.
We lay there, hung in silence and sensuously drinking in what the night gave
up. We must havo spent hours without
throwing down a word.
Then Atcheson spoke. "That is my
usual concert, "he suid. "One gets to
like it."
I did uot answer at once. I conld not,
although his words camo clearly enough
to my ears. A sort of mesmeric doze
pinned me down.
When I managed to rouse, I felt angry
with myself for weakness and spoke
with a sneer. "Y'ou must find it mighty
monotonous," I said.
"A mistake; an utter mistake. It is
full of infinite variety; it never ropoats
itself, and I know, becuuso I havo listened to it now for three years, iu calm,
iu cyclone, iu ovory kind of night which
Qod will give. It is his orchestra, hut
until tho taste has growu ouo does not
know this."
Another pause. Then, "Are you going
to write about this Walden pond uf
yours?" I asked.
"I nm no Thoreau with a pen. Bo-
sides, I am selfish and if I could set this
down I would not. One mun in ten
thousand might understand, some wild
fellow who had lived iu tho air with tho
things that grow in tho air away from
the pestilence of cities, and ho wonld
nover lift a book, but tho others would
either yawn or deride and I tako it this
is no matter to ho profaned, And yet
thero is nothing new in it at all; only
tho old things changed, I have rambled
ovor tho world and seen and tried most
pleasures; the sounds hero give it all
back to mo again, only hero it is idealized. ''
The spoil of tho placo was closing
dowu again and pinning me. I ronsed
myself with an effort aud sworo for relief. "Atcheson," I suid, "Ibelieve you
aro eithor tho devil or Circe witli 11
changed sex. Be merciful and speak no
more and let me sleep. If I listen ou, I
•hall forget the place from whence I am
oomo uud stay here and become us one
of the swine.''
"I am sorry," Atcheson said, "and
because I do not want converts or companions I will suy no more. Therefore
sleep you."

Tho miasma of the lotus was in my
veins and I knew it uud feared. I woke
sullen and suspicious with tho first lift
of duy aud got down to my boat. Atche-
sou came after aud cried a pleasant uuf
wiedersebeu, and I answered with a
scowl and throw out the sculls. I was
very nugry with myself aud still moro
frightened. I had beeu iu that kind of
temptation bofore aud know what it was
afterward to wish thut I had fallen.
Consequently I made up my miud to get
back to the yacht without a halt and so
put in u duy of savage toil, aud because
the sun above burned like a kettle of
molten brass and the air baked, tho material pains of the body gave nie other
matters to think about And wheu I
mude out the sloop's riding light dancing on her forestuy I knew thero was
another antidote close at huud. The man
with the sunburned legs was 11 very cur-
uul nud practical sort of person.
He received mo uffably. Ho fed me
first with sumptuonsuoss, reforred to the
decrease of his own affliction, und then
told me thut we and tho oystermau no
louger had the bnyou to ourselves.
"The Van Sciuks have come in with
their schooner," ho said, "aud they'vo
a girl on board who says she knows you
—a Miss Wilooxn."
"Ah," I said, "I know hor well
enough. Wo used to seo u goodish deal
of one anothor once."
"If you meau thut you were spoonB
ou tho lady," said the man with the
Buubnrned legs, "I guess you'd bettor
forget that She's engaged to a Yankee
man from Massachusetts now, a person
with culture nud dollars—heaps of dollars—about 10,000,000 of 'om, sol believe. And being unno iclalis sum 28,
she knows what is a soft thing and is
not likoly to chuck it up. Take off those
rags aud put on something respectablo
and we'll make the nigger scull us

whon you tnniod up."
"Not now. At present I am going to
turn in to sloop. Probably I shall dio
in tho course of the night. It will save
mo the trouble aud paiu of kicking myself if I do."

sunburned logs, "iu the course of yonii

have tried to avoid speaking ou  a matter  which  I preferred  to keep silence
npon.    Being acquainted, as wo were, I

Sho wanted to know what thero was?
to be seen iu the lagoons and lakes, and]
I told her, with one reservation, hut^
my tale did not quite hold water, and i
she twigged that there was something I
left out and demanded to hear what it |
was, whereupon 1 shrugged my shoulders helplessly and told her about Atcheson, chapter, commas and verse,
merely lying in the solitary instance of t
a personal name.
"You say that ho is a Christchurcli 1
man?" she demanded, when I had fiu-j
"Did I sny so?"
"You did, and you mentioned alsol
that he rowed against you at Henley's
for the Stewards' and Ladies' pluto.
That fixes him. If you'd doue mo tho
compliment to remember, I was down ,
there on a houseboat that year. And so,
of course, his name isn't Fuote at all?"
"Perhaps it's got changed," I admitted  weakly.     "Men's names  do,   you1
know, when they climb down the scale '
as he's done."
"Hum," sho said, and pulled down a
chart of the northern gulf coast from
its cleat in the cabin roof. "Now show
oxactly where this hermit lives."
"Tho chart's all wrong. The place
thore isn't surveyed. "
"Precisely. Bnt you've been there,
and you know tho lay of it. Don't bo
filiy. Your powers, my dear Mac, in thut
direction aro notorious. Here's a pencil. Fill it in accurately and tell me ,
tho landmarks from the gulf side."
"If you go up thero and seo this fellow: and sleep oven one night in thoso
Bwamps, you'll catch fever aud dio;
also tho mosquitoes and tho sand flies
will eat most j)f you before death conies.
Don't bo 11 fool. What inure do yon want
to know about, the mail? Stay here, and
I will tell you."
"My excellent Mao, I have pumped
you dry. For the rest I must seo him
myself. And I shull not die of fever,
because I shall get this yacht to tako me
around to the outside and go from thore,
and so not have to spend a night ashore
nt all. Nor will the insects of tho
swamp devour me, because I own a wide
brimmed hut and a large and most ex- A
colleut veil."
In nn hour's time the two yachts were
standing out board and board over the
bar which guards the entrance to Bayou
Bou Secours. Thero wus a romping
breezo from the nor'ard, and we sped at ^J
eight knots past the low shore, where
only the tree stems show ubove tho water. Then we slipped out through tho
channel between Dauphin island uud
Fort Morgan, and liftud to the swing of
Hie outer sea, running east along the
gulf coast.
Of course Miss Wilcoxn did go to seo
Atcheson. I took her to the island myself, through au intolerable maze of
lakes and waterways, and told the Van
Sciaks that wo hoped to slay alligators
by daylight, which is probably the baldest excuse a grown man with a pretty
invention ever uiudo. But I will givo 1

to comment that Atcheson was a curious

"Now you've learned it for yourself, I
trust you're satisfied?"
"I am entirely, Mac. I hope you are
But whon I got back to town, and to
my vast astonishment saw Atcheson
there, then a light began to dawn upon
me. He was marching down Pull Mall
as largo us life and very resplendent.
Ho had ou u frock coat down to his
heels, tho last gift of tho gods in the
way of lint and tie. and a new reaped
chin, whicli stood out refreshingly while
against tho rest of his countenance. Ho
shook me by the hand and said I was 11
groat man. Then we went iuto 11 club
uud talked fur several hours without u
stop, aud ho explained to mu how a
hermit cannot herniitize unless he bus a
disease vulgarly known as the "hump."
"It's enjoyable enough whilo you
have that," said Atcheson, "hut when
tho hump goos tho bottom's knocked
out of tho hermit business ultugethur.
What n filthy, squalid brute I must have
been all that time."
"But you liked it woll enough?"
"I beliovo I did, iu my morbid way.
But it's over nnd done with now, thank
heaven, and 'I'm going to marry Yinu-
Yum, Yum-Yum, yonr unger pray tarry'— Oh, bother, I've forgotten tho
words. Jove I I shall have a lot to pick

"Thut's a fact," I said. "Ordinary
sanity, among other things. And so
you're going to marry Mary Wilcoxn,
after all?"
"It's a sure thing. Of course her people wero mad, because I'm not very well

I didn't think it funny at all. I roako
quite Buflioieut enemies off my own hat

The Tolco of a Child.
Professor Druuimond tells tho story
of a little»girl who once suid to her father: "Papu, I want you to say something to God for mo, something I want
to toll him very much. I have such a
little voice that I don't think he could
hear it way np iu heaven, but you huvo
a great big man's voice, and he will bo
Biiro to bear you." The futlior took his
littlo girl in his arms and told her that,
even though God wore at that moment
surrounded by all his holy angels,
sounding ou their golden harps and singing to him one of the grandest and
sweetest songs of praise ever was heard
in lieavon, he was sure that he would
say to thom : "Hush I Stop the singing
for a little while. There's a little girl
away down on the earth who wants to
whisper something in my ear." '«
rladness Comes
1 X/ith a better understanding of the
I' V transient nature of the many physical ills, which vanish before proper ef-
[' -ts—gentle efforts—pleasant efforts—
Lditly directed. There is comfort in
file knowledge, that so many forms of
lickness are not due to any actual dis-
jasc, but simply to a constipated condition of the system, which the pleasant
JTnmily laxative, Syrup of Figs, promptly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and i.s
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
Ine remedy which promotes internal
Ileauliuess without .debilitating the
Irgans on which it nets. It is therefore
till important, in order to get its liene-
lieiul effects, to note when you pur-
lliuse. that you have the genuine arti-
lle, which is manufactured by the Call"
lornia Fig Syrup Co. only und sold by
111 reputable druggists,
I If in the enjoyment of good health,
Ind the system is regular, laxatives or
■ her remedies are then not needed. If
lillictcd with any actual disease, one
liny be commended to the most skillful
[hysiciuns, but if in need of a laxative,
s should have the liest, and with the
ll-informed everywhere, Syrup of
J ps stands highest and is most largely
Iced und gives most general satisfaction.

T. A. Slooam offer! to Bend Two Bottles Free of Hia Kemedj to Cure
Cousumptlon and All Lung- Trouble!
-An Bllzlr or Life.
Nothing oould be fairer, more philanthropic or carry more joy in its wake than
the offer of T. A. Sloouui, M. ()., of 183
Pear, street, New York. Perfectly confident that be has an absolute remedy for
the cure of consumption and all pulmonary complaints, he oilers through this paper to send two battles tree to any reader
who is suffering from lung trouble or consumption, also loss of flesh and all conditions of wasting. He invites those desirous of obtaining this remedy to send their
express and pustothce address, aud to receive in return the two bottles free, which
will arrest the approach of death. Already this remedy, by its timely use, has
permanently cured thousands of coses
which were given up, and death waa looked
upon as an early visitor.
Knowing his remedy as he does, and being so proof-positive of its beneficent results, Dr. Slocuni considers it his religious
duty, a duty whioh he owes to humanity,
to donate his infallible reinedv where it
will assault the enemy in its cidatel, and,
by its inherent potency, stay the current
of dissolution, bringing joy to homes over
which the shadow ot the grave has been
gradually growing more strongly defined,
causing fond hearts to grieve. The cheapness of the remedy—offered freely—apart
from its inherent strength, is enough to
commend it, and more so is the perfect
confidence of the great chemist making the
offer, who holds out life to those already
becoming emaciated, and says: "Be
The invitation is certainly worthy of the

and who have fought against death with

Who Are Animal Trainers.

guess what tho A. T. 0. moans? Guess
agniu! Oh, well, it is a hopeless cose.
Yon will never ba uhlo to guess the
right answer, so yon might us well he
told first as last. The A. T. C. is the
Animal Training club, and its members uro littlo Brooklyn buys who have
au assortment of animals us pots. Theso
boys agreed to touch their pets n mini-,
ber of tricks and to moot and confer
with ono another und exchange experiences. As all of the boys aro near neighbors, it was not much tronnlo for them
to congregate in tho buck yard of 0110 of
tho members uud thero hold touchers'
There is ono peculiarity about the
Animal Training club, und that is that
overy member is an officer. Thero ure
the president, vice president, secretary,
treasurer and a number of subordinate
officers not usually thought of by the
formers of clubs. Tho torin of office is
not very long—only two mouths. The
membership dues are 5 cents a week,
which is used iu giving entertainments
for the club und such guests as it invites. In the picture printed here you
may view uli tho members of the club.
Tho picture wus taken by a young nma-
teur photographer, Charlie Anderson,
the brother of Willie Anderson, who
educated two turtles.
Hurry Roso nud his brother, Wulde-
mar Roso, who live at 1-lli Lefferts place,
Brooklyn, have three rabbits, one canary bird, livo turtles, two cats and a
silver fish. Of these pets tho silver UbIi
aud the cats proved to be the most difficult to educate. About tho extent of education thut u silver fish is capable of is
to come up to the top of the water and
got u fly. Birds can be taught all sorts
of tricks if they are bundled when they
ure quite young.—New York Recorder.

Wynken. Blynken and Nod one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe—
Sailed on a river of inisly light

"Where are you going, nnd what do you wish?"
The old niiin asked the thi	
"We have eome to IIkIi for the herring Huh
That live in thu beautiful sea.
Nets of silver and gold have wo,"
Said Wynken,
And Nod.
Tho old moon laughed nnd Hang n song
As they reeked in the wooden huoo,
Aud the wind that sped them all night long
Ruffled the waves of dew.
The little Htars were the herring fish
That lived in that uoautiful sea.
"Now cast your nets wherever you wish,
But never uf eared ure we"—,
So cried tho stars to the fishermen three,
And Nod.
All night long their nets they threw
For tho llsh in the twinkling foam.
Then down from the sky came the wooden shoe,
Bringing the fishermen homo.
'Twils all ho pretty a sail it seemed
Ah if it could not he,
And Homo folks thought 'twas u dream they'd
Ot sailing thnt beautiful son.
But I shall name you the fishermen throe—
And Nod.
Wynken nnd Blynken are two little eyes,
And Nod is a little head,
And the wooden Hlme that Balled the skies
Is a wee one's trundle bed.
Bo Hhut your eyert while mother sings
Of the wonderful nights that be,
And you shall see the beautiful things
Ah you rook in the misty Hon
Where the old shoe rooked tho fishermen

How Women Hide Their Jewel**,
The average woman curries her treas- I
ores iu a small leather bag slipped inside her corset, but this is our/of the
question with women who own from
$50,000 to $500,000 worth of jewels.
Not only wonld tbe loud be cumbersome,
but it would be injurious, Any continued pressure of clothes or bono ngninst u
woman's bosom is hurtful, but the burden
of gold and stones would undoubtedly
create cancer. A physician whom I queried on the subject suid he hud instituted
a crusade against the habit, A woman's
breust, bo remurked, wus oue of the most
sensitive spots to cuueerous growth;
therefore tho slightest pressure there
should be avoided,
A well known nctress who owns u
few dozens of diamonds has had several
littlo hags made that are fastened with
safely pins aluiig the Hues of her stock,
ing supporters Theso suppurters oonsist
of four strong silk elustio straps, depending from a small satin belt, which
she fastens securely about her waist, giving it additional safety by doubly pinning it to her corsets. Ho down the
straps, which aro kept taut by the stockings, nre fnstoued thoso little jewel
cases. She says they do not iutorfero at
all with her walking; but, as she is a
poor pedostrieune, it would scarcely do
to take her word for it.—Chicago Tribune.
An Agricultural Peer.
The Earl of Winchelsea is best known
to the English public by the great interest he takes in matters agricultural.

have extended as far as Egypt, and to

soores of times on the west coast of
Scotland. Ho bus the finest collection of
eagles' eggs in England. The earl is
also keenly interested iu pet animals of
different kinds, and ho nsed to walk

The Great Financier Pound Health in Paine's
Celery Compound.
From the running ofthe maple trough
in the Spring to the boiling of the apple
butter pot in the fall, and all the household boiling between times, there are a
thousand chances of very severe scalds and
burns. In all household work, winter and
summer, in great factories and in nurseries,
where careless children play w ith matches,
there is need of something to be always on
band in such emergencies, and St. Jacobs
Oil fills that want to the letter. With
careful attention to directions for ut-e,
there is nothing more soothing, healing
and curative than this great remedy for
pain. It cures promptly, and, making a
new surface, leaves no scars. The pain of
scalds or burns is acute and torturing, and
the relief by the use of the Oil is immediate
and sure. ____

Prominent among the Mew England
mon whose brains and energy have
helped to make the western states rich
and powerful is Geuoral David T.
Beals, president of the Union national
bank of KausaB City. Successful in his
many enterprises, he lives today iu a
fine mansion at the corner of Independence and Wabash aves.
The work and the responsibility in-
oumbent upon the president of so important a banking institution as the
Union national wonld endanger the
sturdiest health, den. Heals' clearheadedness and good sense were as
manifest in the ohoioe of a remedy as
in his business enterprises. He
strengthened his tired nervous system
by the use of Paine's celery oompound.
Its invigorating, health-giving effects
justified his expectations, and showed
in his own oase the remarkable power
of this muoh-disoussed remedy for thoroughly restoring and strengthening the
"run-down" system.
"I found Paine's oelery oompound
an agreeable tonic and soothing to tbe
nerves," says General Heals.
These are the oonoise words of commendation characteristic of the conservative business man and the influential banker, who has learned to weigh
well his words.
The scanty sunlight and the stagnant, used-up air of living rooms during the winter reduoes the strength
and nervous energy, especially of per
sons employed constantly indoors. Th»
need—the absolute neoessity—of a
genuine iugivorntor at this spring season has impressed itself on the attention of all thinking people.
In the famouB laboratory of Dartmouth Medioal School, Prof. Edward
E. Phelps, M. D., LL. D , discovered
the formula of Paine's celery compound, a remedy that has become the
standard nerve restorer, blood purifier,
and strengthener from one end of the
country to the other, a preparation that
stands unrivalled as the medicine that
makes people well.
It is a fact much commented npon
that men and women of national reputation and prominence, like Gen.
Beals, State Treas. Colvln of New
York, Mr. Carlisle's private secretary,
Mayor MoShane of Montreal, Rev. Fr.
Ouellet, Coin Hnwell, ex-MiniBter to-
Austria John M. Francis, and a host of
others who are careful whHt they employ when sick and have the amplest
opportunities for finding out what is
best, have of their own accord sent letters describing fully their permanent
recovery from rheumatism, heart weakness, sleeplessness, debility, kidney
trouble, and diseases of the stomach
and liver. In all these cases Paine's
celery compound was the remedy that
was able to completely and permanently bring back health, make poor
blood again rich and pure, and regulate and build up the nervous system
when weakened and deranged.

In the course of an address he-
fere the Methodist miniatersin Chicago, thc Rev. \V. W. Painter said:
"Grasping capitalists who flourish
by crushing out competition and
depriving thousands of an opportunity to make an honorable and comfortable living take a portion of
their surplus and devote it to great
institutions, already rich in resources, and thc- praises ol these
givers art-sung throughout the land.
.Some of these noted men are millionaires because they have withheld from the great company of
their employes a portion of what
their services were worth, as well as
what they need to provide the aliso-
lutc necessaries of life. Some of
these donors of hundreds of thousands and millions arc giving away
that whioh does not liclongto them,
and deserve no credit for their apparent generosity. Honest wages
for honest work is a thousand times
better than dispensing charity to
those who have failed to receive
their just dues. To rob Peter to
pay Paul is far from the divine
idea of honesty."
As a railroad corporation could
obtain no original rights without
permission of the state, hy what
logic can it be denied that the state
hus lost its power to regulate and
abolish the wrongs and abuses enforced by such corporation? The
tendency of public opinion is to
control absolutely the conduct of
chartered franchises, and although
the movement is of slow progress,
the day will come when relief will
be assured.—Typographical Journal.

themselves on him and bound him with

A Horse iih a Retainer.
A criminal lawyer in Chicago, who
Is noted for Ills.facility in acquitting
uny prisoner in whose defense he may
be employed, without much regard lo
the character of tbo evidence, is in
great demand, particularly among
those who feel that their cases may be
precarious. He received a letter the
other day from a prisoner in the county jail. It related that the writer hatl
been arrested for borse-stealing nnd
wns indicted at the last session of the
grand .fury. It declared that the writer
bad little hope of acquittal unless good
talent could lie enlisted in bis behalf,
and he begged the lawyer addressed
to take the case. Then came thc
pathetic part of the letter.
"I have no money," the writer said.
"to pay for legal services, nnd very little property. Hut lhe horse is a good
family driving horse; It can do a mile
in 2:80, and is gentle enough for any
lady to use. I'll give you the horse if
you'll take the case."
The lawyer is still undecided.—Chicago Record.
A Competent Witness.
A little girl was in the witness box,
and as usual, before she was allowed
to be sworn, she was examined hy the

"Do you know what an oath is, my
childV" asked the judge.
"Yes. sir; I am obliged to tell the
"If you always tell the truth, where

■   "Are you quite sure of that'.'"
;   "Yes, sir; quite sure."
"Let her he sworn." said Maule. "It
Is quite clear she knows a great deal
more than I do,"—Pittsburg Dispatch.
A Gentlemanly Judge.
In a conversation tbe other day District Attorney Graham told of his
twenty-live years' experience at the
liar with the late .ludge Allison, and
incidentally paid a sterling compliment
to the dead jurist. "He was," said Mr.
Graham, "u splendid judge, with a
stock of patience that wns inexhaustible. No lawyer can say that lie was
ever turned nway from Judge Allison's
bnr without n kindly, courteous, complete hearing. His hearing both on nnd
off the bench reminded ine always of a
passage in 'David Copperlield.' where
Dickens writes, in effect, that 'a man
might assume a gentlemanly demeanor
for nn occasion, but lt is only nature's
true nobleman who never lays it
aside.' "—Philadelphia Record.

Miss Irwin was vory busy. She wns
haudling a difficult assignment which
by rights should have boen given to one
of the men reporters, aud so it happeued
that she remained after every one else
had gone to dinner, and for some time
the .walls of the city editor's room had
listeuod to tho unsusnal sound at sacli
an hour of a hud stub peu scratcbiug
over thin brown paper.
Finally the monotonous scratching
was interrupted by the opouing of a
door, and Fauuiug, tho polico reporter,
hastily eutered. Miss Irwin paused iu
ber story long enough to look up.
"Ob," sho said, "it's you, Funning.
Been to dinner already?"
"No, ma'am, not yet. I'm looking
for Scrautou. Hasn't come back yet, has
"Not yet. Anything I can do for you ?"
"No, thanks. I just wauted to see
him about a story—that littlo chap that
was hurt. Read nbout it, didn't you?
Scrauton's interested. Tho little chap's
dying. I've just come from tho bonso.
Tho doctors all say he'll dio tonight,
and I wanted to tell Soranton, I am so
worried. Pshaw, I'm worried sick. I"—
He paused, ran his flngors through his
hair and looked embarrassed.
"Come, now, Fanning, tell me all
about it," said the thoroughly interested
Miss Irwiu.
"There ain't much to tell. Ob, you
mean what I'm worrying nbout? Well,
to put the whole thing iu n few lines,
I'm afraid be might not die in time for
mo to got my story for tho morning's
paper. Just think of what I'd lose—
sucli a beautiful story."
Miss Irwin looked shocked, uud Fanning saw it. His bluo eyes took on a
resolute expression, but the musoles of
bis face did not move, nor did bis red
cheeks grow the least bit redder. He lit
a cigarette and said doggedly :
"Yes, ma'am; so long as he'sgoingto
die—they said he won't live through
tonight—he might have euough consideration for me to arrange it iu time.
Just my luck to get scooped. " And he
knocked off some cigarette ashes.
Miss Irwin gazed at tho boy in astonishment.
"Why, you cruel, cruel fellow," she
exclaimed, in a disappointed tone, "I
didn't think you were that sort. "
It was Fanning's turn to look disappointed. "You seem to think, because I
talk as I do, that a polico reporter hasn't
any feelings at all," he said, iu an injured way. "Maybe we've got more
than you think. Now, there ain't anybody Borrior than I am for that little
boy. Why, his mother and sister think
I'm the best friend they've got, because
if I hadn't said my say, the bully who
hurt the little chap wouldn't huve been
held at all. I fixed him all right enough, !
though; mado things pretty lively at the
polioe court, didu't I? Well, I guess.
"Say, if ho would only hurry up and
die iu time 1 could write tho most ele- j
gant aud touching story. You just ought
to see him. Everybody takes so much in-
terest iu him, and folks send him books |
and toys and jolly aud all sorts of good
things to eat. When I saw him this evening, the bed was covered with playthings, bnt if you'll believe it, ho didn't
seem to care for 'em at all. The ouly
thing he noticed was a buncb of roses
somebody had sent him. He wouldn't
part with 'em, and when I saw him lying buck there with tho flowers against
his cheek, I thought how pretty it would
be for mo to have him die with them iu
his band. Say, wouldn't that be pictnr-
esquo? I won't bother yon, though, any
longer. If you soe Soranton, tell him
about it; he'll bo interested."
Tho door closed, aud Miss Irwin was
again alone. She couldn't take up the
train of thought she had boon pursuing
when interrnpted, and sbu still had tbo
shocked look sho assumed at the beginning of Fanning's conversation.
"Such a hardened fellow," Bhe muttered, "and yet at heart I really believe
him to be what be says he is."
Tbe next morning Miss Irwin scanned
tbe papers, but saw nothing ahont the
boy. The evening papers contained long
accounts of his life and death. Miss Irwin felt rather sorry that Fanning, with
all his cruel, kind heart, had been scooped. She was sure his account would
have surpassed those she had read, and
she sighed as she thought of tbe roses.
They had not been mentioned at all.
Several days passed. She was anxious
to meet the police reporter. Curiosity
caused her to wonder what he would
say. Finally the chance came. She happened to be waiting for a car when Fanning passed. She stopped him.
"By the way, Fanning, I saw yon
were cheated ont of yonr story about
the little boy."
1 Yes, I was.    Luck's   dead against
"What time did he die?"
"Three a. m. exactly.    Jnst too late
for me to get in even a line. I was there
when be died."
"Poor, dear, little fellow I   How did
he die?"
"He died on space rates, ma'am."
Miss Irwin tbonght that she had be-
tome nsed to the reporter's   peculiar
style, but his reply was too much for
her. When she regained her composure,
sho said:
"I mean, did be know anybody? Was
ho conscious to tho lust?"
"Oh, yes. Ho just opened his eyes;
theu ho shut 'em again, and ho opened
'em again and smiled real sweet at his
mother and sister and mo, and thou,
and then he—he just died nice, real nice.
"Say," ho touched Miss Irwin ou
tho arm and laughed, "what do yon suppose? His mother thinks so much of mo
sho asked me to pick out tho coffin;
said she didu't know what would bo appropriate. I selected a little beauty.
Say, you ought to have seeu him in it."
Miss Irwin was becoming vastly interested in Fanning. Ho was so different from any oue she bad over met before. Then, too, ho puzzled her. His
conversation wus certainly of a "don't
care" stylo, but somehow sho couldn't
beliovo liim to bo ns heartless ns he
seemed. His story about tho doath of
tho littlo boy bad affected her greatly;
so muoh so, iu fact, that sho went to
see tho sorrow stricken mother.
"Oh," said the mother, between hor
tears, "you are from Tho Morning Herald, you say? It is so kind of yon to
como. My poor little boy thought Tho
Herald was the best paper iu town ; lie
ofleu sold it. If all tho people on The
Herald arc so good and .kind us you aud
Mr. Fanning"—
"Fanning I"
"Yes, do you know bim? I don't
know what ou earth I would have done
in all my trouble if it hadn't been for
him. He's got tho kindest, most generous heart. 'The Lord loyeth a cheerful
giver,' but thon, Mr. Fanning can afford to givo, and"—
"Fauuiug afford togivel" ejaonlated
Miss Irwiu.  "Why"—
"It's a blessed thing to be rich, nnd
to have so much power on a great big
paper like Tla- Herald," continued the
elder woman. 'Of course, if he bad been
poorer off than he really is, I wouldn't
have let him do what he did."
"May 1 ask what he did?" inquired
Miss Irwin.
"Yes, indeed, and I'm only too glad
to toll you about it. I believe iu mentioning good deeds. Mr. Fanning's paper look such an interest iu my little
boy that it printed loug columns nbout
him, and theu Mr. Fanning had tho man
who injured my boy put in jail, aud
then ho sent him flowers — beautiful
roses, the ones he was buried with—and
Mr. Fanning even bought the coffin with
his own money. When I told him not to
do that, he laughed nud said that was
nothing—he could afford it."
"So," mused the lady reporter, ns she
walked awuy, "Funning has spent all
bis hard earned savings on tho flowers
and coffin. He's a dear, good boy."—

II»n PhotoeraphH Made of Hia Employees
Showing Them Sleeping or Lounging.
One Crew Camped by a Fire—Groat Ia
the Pouffhkec-iaie aud Eastern.
Russell Sage is the proprietor of a
railroad 40 miles long that gives him
moro trouble than all his other mileage
and his millions put together. It is called the Poughkeepsie and Eastern, and,
as its name implies, one end of it is anchored iu what poople who live there
call the Qneou City of tho Hudson. The
j other end is at present located iu a cornfield in tho diroetion of Boston. Every
time Mr. Sage gets out of sorts with tho
Vnuderbilts or annoyed at Ihe New York
aud New Haven peoplo ho stretches out
his Poughkeepsie aud Eastern n little
and employs several men with pickaxes.
Then his surveyor^ squint duo east
through theodolites and there is big talk
about the Poughkeepsie and Eastern
paralleling the Boston and Albany.
Threats nre also mado of an exteusion
west to Chicago.
Mr. Sage decided recently to take an
active part iu the operating of his pet
road. This determination was due to
information he received privately that
things were not going on all right. The
locomotive engineers wero exceeding
their allowance of three-quarters of a
pound of coal per train mile, and wero
ruuning freight trains over the whole
length of the road in less than two days,
tho schedule time, or taking a week,
just as caprice dictated. Theu other irregularities were discovered. At the
aunual inventory, Jan. 1, three coupling
pius aud one chamois leather waBhrag
were missing.
"Tho whole root of the difficulty is
laziness," said President Sage. "These
things will always happen to a railroad
whose employees aro uot industrious.
Discharge all the lazy men we have at
present aud get more."
But this was moro easily said than
done. They couldn't locate the lazy
men. A freight crew would set out from
Boston Corners with every appearance
of wakefulness and energy, but just as
soon as it got around a curve where tbe

Mistaken Kindness.
One of the first resolutioua which are
formed by men and women who are
sneceeding in life, that is, us measured
by tho ouly standard in use nowadays,
iucreasing their possessions fur boyond
their actual need-', is that they will put
safeguards arouud their children; the
hardships which they themselves contended against shall never, if they can
help it, he encountered by their offspring. They not ouly coddle themselves, iudulgo themselves witli unac-
customed luxuries and spare themselves
all avoidable physical exertion, but they
believo this courBo to be the right way
to live, and that if it is good for them,
it is good for their children. They do
not understand that character is formed
under the pressure of the compulsory
hardships aud self denials of youth,
jnst as they forget that health is not a
gift or an accident, but the reward of
abstinence and of hard work under natural conditions, perhaps continued
through several generations. —Frederick

It is believed that the first eleotric
light installed in an American theater
was a Jablochkoff candle, used as a focusing lamp in the old California theater, in Bnsh street, San Francisco, in
1878. The managers of the theater at
that time were Messrs. Barton & Hill,
Qeneral Barton and Frank Lawler. The
play was "Antony and Cleopatra," Rose
Eytinge and Cyril Searle taking the
leading parts. Mr. A. H. Reece was the

We had bunted up and down the lides
for the greater part of a day, and finally,
with the scent at its hottest, we seemed
to have lost tho fox in the neighborhood
of a little cottage, with a pigsty tacked
ou to it. Tho hounds were giving tongue
around the pigsty, while its occupants
protested with no less noise. Tho hubbub wus tremendous, and the tumult in-
creused tenfold when tho second whip
climbed tho sly palings and began to
search tho tenement for the missing fox.
There was no sign of him. Still tho
hounds kept giving tongue around the
dwelling as if tho fox were there. Tho
whip, after drawing the pigsty blank,
knocked at the cottage door and, receiving no answer, entered. The sole iuinnte
was a hedriddeu old woman, who protested with vehemence equal to the pigs'
against this invasion of her privacy,
adding that no fox could possibly have
como in, for tho door had not been opened since her grandson had gone out to
work in the morning,
Tho mini in pink was about to retire
with apologies when a hold hound hurst
iu through the door, with a terrible
burst of melody. Ho stopped to ask no
questions of tho poor old lady, hut went
under tho bed like a tiger. Moro bounds
dushed in; thero wus a souffle uud a
worry under the bed, shrieks from tho
poor old woman that lay on it, furious
denth notes of tho bounds—and iu a
second or two all wus over. It took u
deul of silver and consolation to make
the lady realize that tho hounds bad not
killed her as well as the fox. Sho still
protested solemnly that the fox could
not havo entered tho cottage because the
door had been shut all tbo time, but it
was obvious enough, from tho sootiuess
of the old fellow's coat, that bis way iu
bad been, not through tho door, but
dowu tbo chimney. —11 uemil kin's Magazine.
Man's Sixth Sense.
"There i.s every reason to believe that
man was once vastly superior to his
present self." said Claude Fales Wright,
the theosophisi, iu New York the other
"Yon all havo possibly heard tho expression, whicli comes dowu from centuries, 'Frightened out .of his seven
senses.' It is not ridiculous to believe
that man at one time had seven senses.
What these other two senses wore it is
uot now within our province to kuow.
It is possibly just as difficult to find out
as to tench n person who has no sense
of innsic what music is. You might
play and sing for such a person, hut
without some iutuitivo knowledge of
harmonious sounds you could not make
him appreciate music. Tho main tiling
for us to do is to get rid of old ideas if
wo would learn, Socrates said that this
wuy to learu is to forget. If a man tolls
mo something new, I do not doubt tho
truth of it until I havo investigated it,
If we make np our minds that wo cannot
do a thing, then we will never do it.
"Almost all animals aro susceptible to
iutuitivo qualities, which cnunot he defined. In man theso qualities are often
strongly marked. You have noted the
peculiar influence which tho presence of
certain persons has upon you. Sometimes ouo cannot think ovil or good of
another iu his presence without his
knowing it. This is a sensitiveness to
which wo uro all more or less subject.
But wo must not let this feeling coutrol
ns. We may have it uud control it, and
this, then, coustitutcs the sixth souse.
It is the living in tho world nud not being of it—uot giving up foolishly nil
you huve. It. is evident thnt we uro coming to au appreciation of the sixth sense.
No doubt by philosophy wo will recover
the senses, two of whicli hnve been

On the Trek.
We have now bud n real trial of trekking life, nud thus far it is the greatest
success.   This  is bow our day passes:
We trek from about !3 in the morning till
about 7.   As tho road is usually pretty
jolty, aud  therefore uot  couducivo  to
slumber,  Mrs. Grey und I sleep ou for
another  hour  after  wo stop—that  is,
from 7 to 8.   During this time tbe tent
is put up, nud some water got, if possible, for our buths.   Moauwhilo the men
have gone out shootiug.  We havo breakfast on tho voldt about 9:80 or 10. After thut till about 1 :J!0 is free    I sometimes sketch, but I usually want to walk
us well; or I ought to bo writing journal or washing clothes or dusting out
tho wagon or skinning birds or darning
my stockings (especially tho last), and
tho timo available is all too short. At 1
we huvo a cup of cocoa nud a biscuit,
and then pack up for anothor two hours'
trek from 2 to 4.   Ono lias to pack everything in most carefully, us otherwise
it would be either jolted to pieces or
tossed  ont.     Wash-stand,  camp  stools,
ladder, books, etc., uro  nil  located  in
our wagon uud have to be taken in and
out nt  each trek.   From 10 to 11 is the
ouly quiet timo for sleopiug, so ono tries
to mako the most of it.   The "boys"
usuallysleep under tho wagons. Almost
tho ouly drawback of tho life is the dirt
uud dust.   For the first week the roads
wore muddy, and our  buck wagou got
"stuck" several times—ouco for about
eight hours. They had to use 80 pairs of
oxeu to pull it out, taking tho spans
from tho otlier wagons, aud even then
only succeeded after "off loading" uud
much diggiug iu front of tho wheels.—

Pronounced  Like  English, but With  the
night Syllable Accented.
As tho English language has well
Bottled rules of pronunciation, and is
well ublo to deal in its owu manner
with almost any possible combination
of letters brought into it from other
languages, it would seem to ho not ouly
permissible but proper for English
speaking people to pronounce foreign
names according to English analogies.
It is not incumbent upon Americans or
Englishmen to familiarize themselves
willi Russian, for example, hel'oro they
may venture to pronounce tho mime of
a Russian diplomat, or study Chinese
in order to he iu n position to mention
casually some Chinese proper name. It
is enough, us a geueral rule, to give to
the old combination of sounds presented
to US ill dispatches from Japan, Bulgaria, the Transvaal or Venezuela such
utterance us tho laws of our own language prescribe. Hit or miss, life is too
short to master the orthoopy of every
tongue uud we must be content to do
the best we can iu our own wuy. Especially is this the case with proper names
that have long hud place in the English
language and have u recognized English pronunciation, It is mero affectation to convert Paris into Puree, or apo
the German pronunciation of the name
of Wagner, lho well known musician
and composer, by giving a v twist to tho
first lotter. Paris is Paris, aud Wagner
is Wagner, tho uames being common
and well understood. A person iu the
first enthusiasm of his acquaintance
with a foreign language may bo pardoned for airing his superior knowledge
when uncommon names, not adopted iu
common English speech, are iu question, bnt he becomes ridiculous when
ho undertakes to impart a foreigu accent to familiar names. There is a story
of a New York clerk, named Gordon,
who after a month's stny iu France bo-
came "Oor-r-rdoug" and refused to uu-
swer to uny other appellation. His caso
was an extreme one perhaps, but it illustrates tho vice—too common—of
using with excessive ostentation foreigu
instead uf tho more useful and intelligible English pronunciations.
With respect to Latiu and Greek proper names a stricter rule may perhaps be
conoeded to apply. These languages are
tho implements of culture. The rules of
pronunciation applicable to words transferred from thom into English aro
simple aud few, aud well within tho
leach of overy one who pretends to a
classical education, Afnlseaccout is accordingly unpardonable, nud among
classic scholars correctness of ucceut is
the accepted test of sound and thorough
training. But iu the sounds given to
particular letters there is room for the
manifestation of vanity or immature
judguiout. Cicero's name during tho
lifetime of the great Roman orator was
uudoubtedly prouounced Kikero, nud
Ciusar was Kaisar. Other consonants
and all Ibe vowels were iu classical
Latin pronounced iu n way which our
English letters ouco followed, but from
which they have now for the most part
departed. At college it is well to learn
what is thought to have been tho true
Latin pronunciation. All knowledge is
useful. But it is unnecessary in quoting Latiu after leaving collego to aim
at a painful consistency. In respect
iudeed to uames liko Cicero aud Cu-sar,
which have beeu domesticated, so to
speak, in the Euglish language, the
usual rule applies. They nro to bo pro-
uouueed liko English words, ouly tuk-
iug caro to get the accent on the right
sylluble. Tiio English speaking American people accept, in fact, tho common
sense rule that pure English is always
preferable to a potpourri of German.

They stepped to the edge of the sidewalk and looked long Snd earnestly iu
tho direction of tho cornice of ono of
tho big buildings. Of courso under the
circumstances the man wlio hud been
standing in the doorway felt impelled
to join them. He could not seeanything
extraordinary at tho top of the building,
but lie kept his eyes upturned becuuso
thoy did.
A man who was hurrying along saw
the throe, and be at onoe forgot where
ho was going and what he had to do,
aud joined them.
"I told you so," said the man who
had first cast bis eyes in that directiou,
and ho mado a motion as if to poiut out
something to his companion.
Four meu who were passing saw the
gesture and stopped to investigate, and
before they had fairly fixed their gazo
upon the cornice throe others joined
"Y'ou maybe right," returned the
companion of the man who had lirsti
spoken, "but you said 20, you know."
Six more peoplo, including two women, were now straining their eyes to see
what was wrong with tho cornice, and
a rumor wus iu oiroulation thut some
oue had tried to throw a child out of
ono of the windows, This was promptly
deuied by the man who knows it all and
who is always present on such an occasion. He said that a gung of counterfeiters bad been found ou tho top floor
and had taken refuge on the roof, where
they were preparing to do battle with
thu officers who had been sent to arrest
Meanwhiletbe little group ut tho edge
of tho sidewalk had swelled to a crowd
of over a huudred.
"Well, are you satisfied now?" asked
the man who had first stopped.
"Yes," replied his companion.
"There are more than 20."
"Moro than 20 what?" anxiously inquired several of those nearest the two.
"Fools," returned tbe first speaker
promptly, "inspired idiots. Yon see, we
had a dispute as to the number of fools
to be seen ou the streets of a great city,
and I bet him we could gather 20 around
us iu ten minutes by simply standing
out hero and looking up ut tho coruice.
Gentlemen, there are more than 20 of
you here, and I win."
Then a hundred or more solemn looking meu, and a few womeu, went on
about their business, and they all fell

Ln Revue de Paris prints a statement
by George Band ou her views of novel

It was written when sho was 71   years

new edition of her works, but the project of tbo now oditiou was given up.
Though  sho  was  looking  forward   lo
death at tho time, it expresses only the
most cheerful sentiments, for there was
a Stubbornness  about  hor optimism as
nbout  her  idealism.    Concerning   this
last sho hns u good deal to say, of which
the   substance  is  this:   sho  has  beeu
charged with idealizing her personages,
Well, she meant thnn to be as they arc
And, which is not the same thing, she
saw them so, aud often met people like
them iu the world.  But if she had only
met   one   such   noble   personage   that
sume  would  have   been  real, and  she
would he within her rights in depicting
him.    Sho is aware tbo present temper
of lho world is hard.    She bus done her
level best  to soften the feelings of her
contemporaries  and   altogether failed.
But she means to go on her old way ut
71, und,  if she can persuade  a single
soul of the reality of ideal virtue, will
sny her time bus not been losl.   And all
Will come right.  As for the world going
