The Cost of a "Scurry" Train If You Ar
In it Hurry unit  Have Plenty of Money
—Some Itecoril Trip* of Till* Character
Mail- in the Old Land.
From 8250 to $750 and 30 minutes' notice at a big railway station
—often less—will provide you with a
train of four carriages all ta yourself, it will whirl you to the other
end of Britain—to whatever station
you want to reach. If ever you are
in such a hurry that money matters
nothing—provided you have got i_—
you can count on getting an ordinary train at thc price of I'rom 20 to
40 ordinary tares to your destination.
i-lut if you want comfort and
"style," an extra half .hour's noti.o
to the railway "people "Will procure
you a dining and sleeping car, with a
cook, attendants, food and wines,
from $100 to §150 extra. Then you
can "burn the ground" over 300
trules by rail, only stopping to water
the engine and laugh at all the tine
tables over compiled. A great many
we.tlthy pu.iple in a hurry have done
this.
The lilggrgt "Scurry."
One of the biggest "scurries" in
special train records was a train
scratched together for the King,
\vhen Prince of Wales, on a very important occasion. He, of course,
neaily always has his own trains,
but "extras" are as much a part of
the railway system as the mails.
There is nothing exciting about
them.
Dut while on a visit, to it country
house just out.idc ' I.eiccs ei-, the
King received a message that had
been delayed. The Crown Prince of
Greece had arrived in England and
his formal reception by the liueen at
Buckingham Palace was put forward
by a auy. The news, owing to a
breakdown, did not reach the Ptince
till 15 hours after it ought to have
reached him, and he barely had two
and a half hours before the ceremony
began. These affairs between royalties are extremely punctilious and
there are no excuses,
It would have been almost an international slight if the Prince had
not appeared, but there was no
train. A messenger rode posthaste
to Leicester, the Prince followed in a
fast carriage and when he arrived a
"special" of four "odd-und-end" carriages had been slung to a fast engine—less than four aro not safe—in
less than 15 minutes.
lie jumped in, the line was cleared
and oft the train, wtnt. He was
without lunch and the earriago was
an ordinary first-class, but the
Prince's valet bustled some sandwiches in at the last moment, and
tho train, with a clear line, whisked
its royal freight to London In an
hour and 40 minutes. He was just
in time for the reception.
The ".Marling* Special."
Probably the most romantic, as
well as one of the smartest, of special train hurries was one that raced
from London to Dover a few yeats
ago, on the occasion of a runaway
match, and whicli still lives in railway annals as the "mniriage special." The engager of the train, a
Mr. Vickery, had big ditllculiics* to
overcome, for his fiancee was a ward
in chancery, that is, she und bev
estate were under the guurdiansliip of
the law, and the penalty for marrying a ward without tho consent of
the court is imprisonment.
tained, tbe young couple disregarded
it und were married at a registry oflice. The bride's relatives, however,
had had the bridegroom watched by
a private detective', and shortly after the ceremony' the newly married
couple found they were discovered.
The bridegroom had a small steam
'yacht in the Granville dock at lover, and to this they wero to have repaired   by   tr_in.     But  as   the    vvar-
j rant for'the groom's arftst was now
i likely to be iss_ed at any moment,
they dared not wait for the train
and a special was ordered. In 30
minutes it was le.tdy and the coui 1j
were speeding south.
| Thc detective, to gain time to put
the machinery* of^ the law in motion,
tiled to have the train stopped at
Canterbury, but. as he had no legal
authority he failed, and the coui lo"
reac>jd Dover.- . The .'main reason io
ta! ing the special is. that a vessel in
the Grain ille dock has to wait till
two hours before high water before
she can get but, and the ordinary
train wot:ld havp missed ti.e ti<__.
They . ar ived'-twenty minutes too
early, having done thc journey in two
hours to the minute, and waited
anxiou: ly for thc dock gates to open. \Vh_n they did, the yacht steamed out, and the couple Lft Biitish
waters juSt an hour ahead of the
wai rant. At daybreak the yacht put
into I'lis'iing and the happy pair
lived abroad till thc bride's majority.
I lerpont Morgan's Rpeeial "Special."
A very special  "sie;i..l"   was    the
one whi.h Mr. Fierpo'nt Morgan   ordered at Manchester the last time ho
was over here.     In  the States  he is I
at'C-S-omod  to take specials   almost j
every whet e,  and a big  railway  mag- I
nate can do what he likes with Am- I
erican railway lines. i
I     Mr. Morgan vvas said to be in Eng-
land for a  rest.     However,  he   sud- j
denly  ordered   a   "special"   for  Lon- |
don at Manchester, and required  the
best possible.    In 40 minutes a train
with dining and parlor carriage was
needy,    with    a little till for $325.
This  paid,   Mr.   Morgan  stopped    in, I
and was  whirled off at (50 miles   an I
hour.    ITe thought, hovvevc", that he j
could pull up wherever he liked, as in |
the  States,   by     a  message  to     the j
driver,  but found this  was not  pos- !
sible.      All     the    way  up he     made '
notes, comparing the British special
with    the   Yankee,   and     ho reached
London     in    just   under four hours, |
having covered nearly 200 miles.   At !
the end  of the journey ho gave   the I
engine driver $50.  and admitted af-
|
terwards that the performance   was '
ahead of tbe ordinary American spc- i
dais.      The railway record, by  the
way,  is one of the records we hold
from the States. |
j ltrlil-groomi' Special-. I
Oddly enough, a very frequent reason for taking a special is that a
bridegroom is in danger of being
late for his wedalng, and last year
there were at least three specials ordered through this cause. One particularly smart performance vvas the
getting of'Mr. Murray Dixon to Lon-
, don in tine for his wedding, after
I tho carriage accident he had on driving to Bromwich.
On the way to catch a train at
Birmingham his houses shied at a
donkey that was rolling on his back
in the roadway, and turned the outfit into a ditch. Both horses wero
injured, and a four-mile walk and tho
missing of thc train were the results:
However, a speitl was ordered,
whipped together in less than 20
minutes and three caniages, the
shortest special on record, went tearing up to London. They overtook
the train that had been missed, while
it,was pulled up at a station and
the special was shunted around her
and  arrived  at  London   20   m'n'-*
ahead. This trip cost the ari&Juu*
bridegroom $300—nearly ns much as
Mr. Morgan's race irom Manchester.

'•I FORBID THE BANNS."
Frankfort Moore's   . uoe.uful Story After
Seventeen Year* of Waiting.
In the course of an interesting
sketch of Mr. F. Frankfort Moore,
the novelist, M.A.P. says:—
"He may take a certain honest
pride in his hard-won success, but
vanity is not to be laid to his
charge. 'Swelled head' is a ciseasc
whi.h rarely attacks those who havo
thoroughly 'been through the mill.'
If he displayed a literary bent at an
early age, he received no encouruge-
ment to pursue it. Indeed, as he haa
related in his autobiography, his father, on discovering the MS. of an
Arctic novel, promptly burned it.
However, if nominally engaged in thc
study of the higher mathematics, ho
continued to write in secret, and
eventually sold an epic to Messrs.
Smith en-i  **'''«•
Letving home ho became a journalist,     and      traveled widely  in  Africa
nnd India, writing books at the same
time, but it was only after seventeen
ye.trs  of  unremitting    toil  that      T
! Forbid tho Banns' placed hint  where
j there     is  always  room—at  the   top.
| The day  he finished   "I  Forbid      tho

him,  "I have written a cuiious   sort
of book, but,  whether it is good -or,
bad,  it  will  make my fjrtune.'     lis
faith  in  Lis  own  judgment  wavered,
however,  when th. reviews appeared;
With one exception, all were unfavorable.    But in the end his ciitieswere
confounded."

THE bTHiCS Or LAW.
Lawyers the llcst Aliu~etl ami Mitl Trmt-
•'(! of Men.
Tho third of the public lecture
course ol" McMaster University, Toronto, on "'ihe Lti.i~s of Law" proved most en tor tail, iug and instructive,
many uf those pros, nt coining' away
with a very cliff .rout opinion of soma
ptu.S-8 of the j rofossion of law and
its practice to that which they had
before the lecture. Mr. 1). E. TlTom-
son, K.C., close iiied lawyers as at
once the best abt s.d and the most
gemraily fn.sted menibcrs of tho
ton,inanity. He analysed the business of the ordinary law tirtn, of
which not, more than _l per cent, ia
criminal, and of the balance not more
than 10 per cent, ever comes to trial
in the courts, while in four-fifths of
the cases which do reach the courts
there aie no appeals entered. Tho
nature of his business and experience
made the lawyer conservative in regard to changes in ihe law, and,
commenting upon what is sometimes
termed the .lavish adherence to precedent in the law. Mr. Thomson in-
sisted nothing could be more revolutionary and dangerous than departure from th^s practice. Jn this connection he laid down three cardinal
ptiniijlcs for guidance:—(1) That
law is better than justice;* (2) that it
is more necessary the law should ba
certain than that it should be right,
and (8) that etpiity administered according to the .Judge's personal idea
of right and wrong would result in a
cross between lottery and despotism.
Mr. Thoni| son illustrated the numerous points he made by amusing anecdotes and entertaining reminis-
cmc s, which made the subject ol
"law" anything but dull.

.skoiih of .Miss douimon.
No complete collection of Miss
Johnson's poems is ia cxisunce, i
regiet, to say. 'I he above example
of her work is ijuoted from a small
volume published in lewd, entitled
"'lhe While \ianipum." Since mat
date, however, many of her best
poems have been produced, and, it is
to be hoped, will be gathered together in book form in the near future.
For no living Canadian poet has
anything like the interest for us that
]\,iss Johnson has. This is largely
on account of her race. She is the
daughter of the late G. 11. M. Johnson, head chief of tho Mohawk Indians, who marri-d an English lady,
a Ali.,s Howolts, a relative of \iil-
liam Dean llowells, the novelist.
1'ai.line vvas bom on the Six Nation Indian Ito-Ci've in the County of
Urant, and was educated at tl.e
lirantford Model Sih.ol. Her first
verse was published in "Gems of
Poetry," a New York periodical,
and for many yeaia she has I een a
contributor to the tiest peiiodiJuls in
Canada and the United States.
The predominant qualiiL-s of her
poetry, as we have il in ''The White
"tiampum," are those which have
long been recognized as distinguishing her ic.ee. tKx*i~.cii-e, graceful image y, picturesque language and drain, iti./ pasi-ion. The Iroquois were an
Intellectual, as well as an imaginative, people, and e. tablishcd a confederacy that for years held the balance of power on this continent. This
daughter of theirs, it is evident, has
inherited race ins.inets and traditions that one time found expression
in such deeds as that of O. istoh, or
s.ich choice as Dawendinc's. Now
they insj ire a pen. Here and there
the "wilderness j_i. 1"* crops out. In
such lines as "I'enseroso," for ex-
ftmple—the third stanza of which
leads;—
"Let me but feel  athwart  my  cheek  tbe
lash
Of  whipping  wind,   but hr-nr the  torrent
i!« h
Adi.wn the mountain steep, 'twere more my
eho.ee
Than  lonelt of human baud,  than human
voice."
Miss Johnson's attitude towards
Nature in this volume appeals to be
a stock-taking of effects, tnotigh an
appreciative stock-taking; slid, occasionally, as in the last stanza of
"Shadow River," her contemplation
of nature b: comes a revealing
agency, an opening into the transcendent world, or what we choose to
think so, though the idea may be
to the real world no more than the
shadows were to the far fir trees,
and brownish hills, and "the little
fern-leaf bending."
In 1891 Miss Johnson began a
species of entertainment, the unique
•eature of which was the re; Ration
of her poems on Indian life in costume and character She has been
most successful, having appeared in
England, the United States and all
over Canada. Her home is in Brant-
ford.— rharos,  in The Globe.

SO again, though it should be at the I
i ubJio exi.en.se.' ,
"Lads, that made* mo uneasy,   and   all ;
could  think to do was just to lling out I
|niy font at the   bantam.
'Ye dtuir look me in the face, , Davit ■
[Whnmand,' I says, 'nnd pretend ns I'm !
rno mysel'?' j
" 'I daur do so,' he .ays; 'and not
[only are ye no yer,-el', but I would never
.have recognized ye for such.'
'So, so,' I  remarks; 'and  ye refu e
tto deliver tip my coat?'
'Yes,' he says, 'nnd  what's  more  I
never had your coat.'
"Lads, that was his cautiousness in
case twa lines of defense was nuede! be-
', fore the bailie; bul; I paid no more to
him, for now the hpu.e began to fill with
folk wanting to mako -tiro of me, and I
was keen to convince them I w.is in the
1 flesh before Davit prejudiced them. Ay, ,
Robbie, you was one of them as convoyed
me to Header Haggart's."
"I was, Tain mas, and when ye shut
thc door on mo a mask of folk came
round me to hear how ye had broke
out."
"I diiursay that, but their curiosity
didna interest nie now Ye mind when
we got to Hender's house it was black
I' and dark, him pretending to be away to
his bed? Ay, but tho smell of roasting
pdttiteos belied that. As we ken now.
Hemic? had been warned that I was at
Davit's demanding back lhe coat, and
he suspected 1 would enme nest to him
for the waistcoat an I the hat."
"Ay, but he had to letye in."
"Ou, I would havo broken in the donr
rather than have been beat, and in the
tail of the day Hender takes the snib
oil' the door."
"He pretended he thocht ye a ghost
too, did he no?"
""No, no, that's a made up story. Hender and his wife had agreed to pretend
that, bat when Hen.ier came to the door
he became stupid-like, and when I says
'Ay, Hender,' he says 'Ay, Tammas.'
I've heard his wife raged at him about it
lifter.
" 'Xanny,' I says to the wife, 'it's me
back again, and jell oblige by h-itding
ower my waistcoat and try hat.'
"I've forgotten to tell ye that when
I walkeu in, Xanny   wus  Stan ning on a
stool   with   a
poke.'   in   her  hand, the
" 'Tell him,' cries Nanny, 'as ye got
them for helping in his burial.'
" 'Tammas,' Kays Hender, 'that's how
I got them.'
" 'Maybe,'I says,  'but did I   give  yo
them?'
" 'Say ho was a corp,' Nanny cries.
" 'Meaniug  no. disrespect,   Tammas,'
j says Header, 'ye was a corp.'
" 'How could I have been a corp,' 1
! argues, 'when here I am speaking to ye?'
j "Hender turned to Nanny for the an-
• swer to this, but she showed him her
b.'.-k,so h:_ j'tsisii I inaweak way, 'We'll
j lc.-.ye the minister to settle that.'
' Hender, ye gowk,' I says, ye ken
I'm living; and if I'm living I'm no
dead.'
"Lads, 1 regretted I hndnaput it plain
like that to D.ivit Whamand. However,
Hender had na the clear-headedness
necessary to follow out sieh reasoning,
and he replies,
" 'No doubt,' he fays,   'yo  are  living
in a sense, but no in another sense.'
" '1 wasna the corp,' I cried.
" 'We.-l, weel, TamiSfife,' .ays  he, In a
fell dignified voice,   'We   needlia quarrel
on a matter of opinion.'
"I was just beginning to say as it was
more likely to be tad*waistcoat we would
fail out about, when in walks Chirsiy in
tlie most fiuri'le'd way.
'.' 'Tamians Kaegart,' she pants, 'ensue
hame this instant; the: minister's w..icing for ye.'
"Which minister?*..' I asks.
" 'None other,.' she says, lcokhig
proudly at Nancy, 'than tho'Auld Licit
minister.'
"Lads, I shook in my   boots   at   that,
and 1 s.ys, 'I wlunik come,   tii!  I've ,...._

Grand Pre has nee.- really recovered from the effects of the expulsion. It consists of a small station,
which the operator lie's up between:
trains. The Flying Dluenose ignores
it, but it is honored by c ills from

from which a man drives down to
meet the trains, and there are several houses which may be included in

Wolfville, three miles along the line,
has appropriated EvanseHnc nnd a'l
the traditions of Grand Pie, nrd the
inquiring visitor is advised, if he
wants to go to Grand Pre, to go to
Wolfville. There is a town there
with hotels, an academy, a man ml

seminary. There are liverymen the. e
who diivo you to Grand Pie, to lilo-

The station aj,ent smiled and pointed to a ted pump in an ad uC.nt
field when asked about Evange hies
well. Tbe pump looi'S saoly modern
and ut il t riail. but fir the benefit of those who prefer truth in such
matters, it is known that the well
was dug, for convenience, by reopening a caved in well that had scrvod
the Acadian \illago of Grind Ire.
The willows, too, are there, eight
ma-she trunks, gnaried, twisted and
almost faling apai t wi h a.i-e,
though the tops are still vi<;oio-s.
They mark the margin where the Ion-.;
arm from the Basin c.f Minus 01 c~ j
spread over t'e brown pol s' ed mud
flats at. high    tide. But  the  basi.i
does not reach wit hi 1 two miles of
them now, for the dyles biilt by the
Acadians and maintained by t! e present owners have reclaimed and still
pre er.e a brond expanse of about
2,500 acres, through w) i h the winding g ooves of tie tidal streams are
aimlessly threaded, the-ir sloping
sides, onre of sea-washed mud, now
covered with a modern crop of oats
and hay. The sti'e at thc fence surrounding the denuded village site is
worn with the feet of pilgrims, .and
the pump has been saved from demolition only by an incon. cnient
bar. ieade. Thc willow at the end of
the row, the very tree under whi h
Evangeline snt. is scarcely more than'
half the size of the others, its stunted dete ioration being dee to the
constunt brealing off of twigs und
small branches by visiting tourii ts.
Si clt is human reverence for an imaginary fragment of our common humanity, into whose breast the genius
of a poet has breathed the breath of
life.
Explained anil JiiHtifl. tl.
Longf How has made it incumbent
on us to explain and justify the expulsion of the Acadians. If it had
been only Acadians in the nbs met
who had been expelled thc affair
would have been forgotten long ago.
Nobody hus nny sympathy with the
Acadians in the* abstract, because nobody has ever met t^em or associated with them in that form. Expelling
the Acadians would s-'arcely awaken
a passing comment, but expelling two
Acadians is a serious matter and
must be justified. Longfc'low has
shown us two Acadians, 1e.1l, living
I coll.! like oursilvts, people who were
not abstractions, people with li'e,
hope,   affection,   love  and    constancy.
Hi.w  It U l-<iti<*.
It is only as we regard our fellow-
moitnl- as abstractions that wc can
kill, scatter, injuie or speak ct it of
them. So long as wo regard thein
as human beings like ourscl.e. , only
not quite so good, with ullections
and sympathies, with fadings, with
friends and relatives, with hopes and
aspirations, with joys arid sorrows,
we cannot do any of these things.
The soldier kills thc enemy becau.e
the enemy is an abstraction. Dut he
will share the contents of his wat- r-
bottle with tne same enemy wounded
o-i the field, l.ecai se that enemy has
t.ased to bo an abstraction and has

A USEFUL CAMERA.
Photographic   A •iminl us to Tuki'IMC live ~
of Invi~ll>".„ ObJ i*:s.
Ai photography is employed to assist
the a-tronomer in detecting .the existence
of the stars in the heavens whicli could
not be seen by the naked eye with the
aid of the telescope, so it is also used to
secure accurate enlarged reproductions of
minute objects which are revealed to man
only by the aid of the microscope, says
the San Francisco Chronicle.
This development of the art of photography is of great assistance, not only to
the microscopist, but also to the pathologist and histologist. A photomicrograph io
apparatus, as it is called, has been invented by O. G. Mason, secretary of the
American Microscopical Society, which
can be used for making negathes showing objects with a magnification of 15,000
times.
The apparatus is very compact, being
only about two feet in length, but will
receive an objective of any power and
photograph the most minute objects. The
linages are produced on a plate three antl
one-quarter by four and one-quarter
inches. It is mounted on a single base
board, so that the apparatus may lie
shifted at the will of the operator.
To the standard of a miscroseope the
camera box is attached in such a way
that the box can be placed horizontally
or inclined at any desired angle, like a
telescope or microscope Itself. Thus adjustments can be made providing for
any required distance between the objective and the sensitive plate, ' so that the
desired amplification may be readily
secured.
The mechanicil Rtage Is operated by
the small chains which extend along the
sides of the frame of the apparatus, and
the rotation of the objective polariscope,
etc., and tha focusing is affected by rods
extending toward the rear of tho camera
box. By its means the operator, seated
at the camera, can manipulate tho instrument for focusing or searching the
field for any particular object.
A   Hon. fnl Vifnv.
We could expel the Acac'iars again,
the abstract Acadians, but wc would
take abundant care that an exception
was made in the case of Evangeline
and Qabriol. For of that crowd of
sensitive, pulsating lifo htinied to
t!ie ships these two stand out as the
only human I:e ngs. The expulsion
of the Acadians hus been justified by
Mr. Parknian, and many a tendor
ml troubled conscience will blrsillm
_~r the soothing peace he has
brought. The expulsion was all
1 i ;ht. It was just the thing. Hut
Ihnt refers only to Acadians in the
abstract So long as our language
is spoken Evanpclino and Gub'iiel
..il1 bo like the ghost of Danqtio at
Uu.' feust.
