A Little Incideut That IndiOUteS How
Pure a Pearl She Was Upon lhe German Thruiie—How the Great  Heart of
tho Dowager Empress Was Broken—A
Tragic Bljstery.
Mrs. de Touffe Lauder writes in
The Toronto Globe: Our own beloved
Princess Lioyal Victoria of England,
the widowed Empress Frederick of
Germany, and mother of the present
Emperor, has passed to the Unseen,
aiul 1 ask a short space in your
columns to givo utterance to a few
of many pleasant memories iu connection with her remarkable history.
A year or two after tlio Franco-German War 1 lirst saw the frown
Prince Frederick at the Castle of
Heidelberg, a most truly royal and
imposing personality. In stature over
six feet, and witli that majestic
mien, noble head mul radiant countenance, his was an Imperial presence-, and as consort of our Princess we were deeply interested in
him. "True, pure, a pearl upon a
throne." the broken-hearted Kinpress
called liim after Ids death. Victoria
and Frederick were a model pair,
and their tleep love for each other,
antl their lofty plans for their coming reign, were well known. During
later visits to Berlin it was my
gootl fortune to see them, as also
tlie venerable Kaiser Wilhelm of the
great war, and his consort Augusta,
frequently. 1 only mention one of
these occasions. 1 was staying with
German friends in Potsdam. One
morning in .June we wero visiting
some of the lioyal parks and palaces. I had .secured tbe largest, loveliest rose, thinking we might meet
the Crown Prince and Princess. We
had just left the palace Sans Solid,
when 1 saw two carriages approaching, and begging my German friends
to withdraw a little, that I, as English, might salute them, I stood
alone close to the drive, holding up
my beautiful rose. Thc Crown Princess Victoria was in tbe lirst carriage witli Prince Wilhelm (now
the Emperor), Prince Henry and the
eldest, daughter, afterwards Princess
of Meiningen, and one of her ladies.
In the second carriage sat the Crown
Prince Frederick with the rest of tho
Royal children, Princess Victoria,
Princess Sophia, now Crown Princess of Greece. They recognized this
as an English salutation. As 1 presented that rose the Crown Princess
smiled and smiled and waved her
hand — whoever saw ber rare smile
never forgot it. so full was it of
many unspeakable things — and
Frederick removed his hat, bowing
and smiling so heartily two or
three times. My German friends
heard the        English        "Thank
you!" tbey        saitl,       and     they
were so proud and delighted with the honor that I revelled
Inter in a "special treat" in consequence. Tbat is my most precious recollection of the unfortunate pair.
When J recall tills scene, and all
their subsequent history, my heart
i.s filled with a gieat sorrow. They
had just returned from Italy. and
were brilliant in perfect health and
happiness I he.u- the dying Emperor
of three months saying to an old and
faithful servant, whom he had summoned to bis presence — no, he
wrote tbe words, for he could not
speak: "We are both unfortunate,
but I am more unfortunate than
thou." '1'he great heart of the Empress Frederick broke. Greatness,
honors, hopes and plans burst like
air bubbles in hoi' grasp; nothing
realized of all she had hopedl We

anywhere without it. Her chisel is

is a wonderfully lifelike bust In
white marble of the aged Emperor
in tho Palace Babelsberg, by her
hand. He was ever kind and good to

Her tragic history is a. mystery we
may ntit fathom, 'llie Divine decrees
are inscrutable. The world has not
yet learned how great and truly royal a lady has left us all the poorer
for ber loss. Tier biography by some
loving hand shall reveal more of her
later on. Widely read in all the poets
of many languages, and in great
writea-s in all subjects, who shall excel her? She was regarded as possessed of the most powerful mind of
any woman in Europe. Croat in her
love for her people, and for all women and maidens, she cherished
brond plans for the amelioration of
their condition. Empress Frederick

throne, for which her sorrow-yetirs

Ewes, in his journal of Queen Eli n-
beih's Parliament, writing of tho
Parliilineiii ,,f 1577, says: "It. hath
been the custom of these later Protestant Parliaments for the Speaker
to compose a prayer, to be read by
him every morning during the session; accordingly the Speaker made
and read tho following; 'We most

to in the entry in the Commons

advancing our private profit, all envious Humour of disgracing other

exercises which might recommend

A London  Writer Combats tho Idea Thai
it   Is Ajfonizinir,
The popular idea that the act of
dying is a painful process often
causes a fear of death. Hut death
from even the most painful mortal
tiiseases is usually preceded by a
period of cessation from suffering
and partial or complete insensibility,
resembling falling' asleep or the
pleasant gradual unconsciousness
caused by an anaesthetic, according to a writer in The London Spectator,
'lhe common phrase "death agony"
is not warranted by what occurs in
natural death, which is a complete
release from all pain. When death is
owing to heart failure or syncope it
is sudden nntl painless—perhaps pleasant. Death by hanging, there is reason t,, believe, is attended by a voluptuous spasm Heath by decapitation or electricity is only a momentary shock, hardly felt. Heath by
poisoning varies in palnfulness according to the poison employed. Opium and other narcotics probably
give a painless, perhaps a pleasant,
dreamful death, Hemlock, as we
know from the account of the death
of Socrates, causes gradual insensibility from below upward. On tho
othei hand, arsenic, strychnine, carbolic and mineral ileitis, corrosive
sublimate, tartar emetic, antl other
metallic poisons inflict slow antl torturing death. Prussle acid antl cyanide of potassium ciuso quick and
painful  death.

They were u. couple of dirty little
urchins tossing pennies at the entrance ot a Clcrkemvell court on a
summer Sunday afternoon. Their
hats were crownlcss, llieir bodies
coatless .md their (eel bootless. Indeed, their entire apparel seemed to
consist of two hat-rims and some
tattered ticking shirts antl trousers,
th' bottoms of which were torn into
scollops, squares ami other fancy
patterns. The littlo alleyway where
they stood guard was dark and ill-
smelling, yet from the rear there
Issued sounds of music such as one
would scarcely expect to hear in
that neighborhood. "Who makes

whose penny had turned up on its

their elders. "See 'ere, Jim: let's

Can ye sing laitly?" On assuring
him that 1 could sing, he and his
companion, one on cither side of me,
escorted nie in through the narrow
alley towards the centre of the
court. There I found it wider than
at the entrance, so wido that it was
possible to stand six or seven
abreast. Three-storey buildings
were on the three sides of the court,
nntl from every  window there  | red
several    faces.       There    were    men       in
their shirt sleeves, smoking pipes,
and men with aprons tied round
their necks. They bad stopped in
the middle of their Sunday shave,
witii hantls holding a razor suspended in midair. There were women
with plaid shawls crossed upon their
bosoms, their hair in knots which

Dr. Carpenter, the Bishop of l!i-
pon, is one of the most popular
clergymen iu England. He i.s a man
whose natural impulse must be to
throw off his coat, and work in bis
shirt sleeves. "I never address the
Queen at all," he told somebody
who asked him if he felt nervous
when preaching before Queen Victoria. "I know that there will be
present the Queen, the princes, tho
household nntl the servants down to
the scullery maid," Dr. Carpenter
is not ashamed to ride in a bus, and
has crflen told the story of a penny
ride from Westminster to Charing
Cross. When   Ihe   ticket,   collector
came round, the bishop found, to his
astonishment, that he had not a
penny in his pocket, and neither bad
bis wile, wdio was wilh him. Dr.
Carpenter made up bis mind to borrow the money when he alighted at
Charing Cross, but before he reached
his destination a workingman with a
bog of tools thrown over his shoulder turned to him as he left the bus
nnd said: "Don't you bother about
that. I've mailo that all right."
Almost before tlie bishop could say
"Thank you" the man with the bag
was gone, and Ur. Carpenter found
that he had paid his fare nntl that
of his wife to the end of the journey.
A Comical  ISIunder.
One of the most ludicrous mistakes
made by the telegraph was caused
by the loss of a single dot in a telegram from Brisbane to a London
news agency. As it renched London
it read, "Governor-General twins
first son," which the news agency
"edited" and sent around to the pallets in the following form: "Lady
Kennedy, the wife of Sir Arthur Kennedy, Governor-General of Queensland, yesterday gave birth at Government House, Brisbane, to twins,
the firstborn being a son."
The telegram arriving in the small
hours of the morning, there was no
time to check it or refer to Debrett,
and it was published Dy most of the
newspapers in London and the pro-
vinces and caused an unexpected sensation. Sir Arthur's friends pointed
out with conclusive force that some
one had blundered, ns there never

r_Tn«  Into   Comparison  With   Lord Salisbury lor Lone Tenure.
The Earl of Liverpool, who came
ii ntly into comparison with Lord
Salisbury iaa tlie matter of long tenure oi the British Premiership, was
born .I nno 7. 1770. entered parliament in his twentieth year, ami attained to Cabinet rank in 1801,
when as Foreign Secretary under Ad-
dington, he conducted the negotiations which terminated in the lleot-
lllgly popular treaty of Amiens. On
Tilts' return to power he retained
office as Home Secretary, but preferred to act in opposition to l'ox
and Grenville, returning to the Cabinet of Jlr. Perclval in .1809. On the
i.iiier's assassination antl at the urgent solicitation of thc Prince Regent, whose fullest, confidence he enjoyed, he became Prime Minister in
1812 — a position be was to retain
until 1S27, when a stroke of paralysis endcai liis career. The length of
iho Liverpool administration is tlie
u.ore remarkable from the fact that
it opposed from first to last, in its
domestic policy the growing liberal
sentiment of tbe period. Parliamentary reform, the fleeing of the West
Indian slaves and Catholic emancipation were retarded by Liverpool
more perhaps than by any other
man, and the distresses following

The plans here shown tire from
Hoard's Dairyman nnd represent a rectangular silo wdth two pits suitable for
a small number of cows or for use during the summer drought
In this style of silo the pits mny be
made of any required size and their
number added to at will. The tie across
the corners so increases the angle that
It offers but little more resistance to
settling than ^straight wall.
Make a foundation wall coming up
obove the surface sufficiently so that
the ground may be graded to carry all
water from rains and melting snow
awny from the building. On this foundation lay the first frame, which may
be doubled If desired and secured by
bolts set In the wall. At each comer of
this frame and In the middle set up
blocks 19 Inches long and on these
build the next frame, setting It exactly
above the first. On this second frame
set up other blocks upon which to build
the third frame, making these blocks
long enough to space these frames two
feet from centers. Continue on in this
way, adding frame above frame, increasing the distance between, until at
the top they may be four feet or even
more apart. These frames for pits not
exceeding 14 feet on a side mny be
made of 2 hy 8 Inch stuff. Above 14
feet use 2 by 10. TjBe spikes freely.
When the third frame is In place,
commence to stay lath and brace. If
the outside is to be covered with clapboards, drop siding or ship lap, nail on
one Inch furring strips. This wdll leave
a space for circulation of nir from top

Finish the interior wdth two thicknesses of boards, with best quality of

not last, and the former after a good
crop or two would get what I called
sod bound and would not produce a
load of hay to the acre. I know now
why the timothy did no good nfter a
year or two. It was because we pastured It to the roots, thinking It economical to let stock eat the last spear
of grass that showed up In the fall.
Land having by that time advanced ia

Horace Turner and the lady whom he

Tlmt was reasonable enough, but Mr.

"Small things Boraetiraes tell big tales

singular case that eve** fell under my care
was a case in which a white man bad
been murdered in some mysterious way,
and tlio body was put away and all efforts to locate it were out of the question. Suspicion fell ou a negro, and ho
was arrested, but subsequently was released because of the absence of proof to
connect him with tbe crime. The body
was missing, and it wns certain that the
man had been murdered and robbed by
Borne person familiar with the surroundings. The negro hud worked for him,
but had been discharged because of impudence.

Some Useful Hints to Mothers on the
Care of Little Ones.
Babies firy because they are sick
or in pain, and in almost every ease
the sickness or pain is caused b.v
some disorder of the stomach or
bowels. Fermentation and decomposition of tlie food produce a host of
infantile troubles, such as griping,
colic, constipation, diarrhoea, simple fever, indigestion, etc. Proper
digestion of the food is necessary to
the maintenance of life, and evacuation of used uj) products and refuse
of digestion is necessary to health.
The lesson to mothers is, therefore,
that tlie stomach and bowels should
be carefully watched, and if baby
cries, or is fretful or cross, some
simple vegetable remedy, should be
given. Mothers should never resort
to the so-called "soothing" preparations to quiet baby, as they Invaria-
ably contain stnpifying opiate..
Baby's Own Tablets will In- found nn
ideal medicine. They gently move
the bowels, aid ingestion, and promote sound, healthy sleep, thus
bringing happiness to both mother
and child. They are guaranteed to
contain no poisoning "soothing"
stuff, nnd may he given with absolute safety (dissolved in water, if
necessary) to children of nil ages
from earliest infancy, wilh nn assurance that they will promptly cure
all  their minor  ailments.

Mrs. Alex. Lnfnve. Copper Cliff, Ont.,
snys: "I would advise all mothers
to keep Baby's Own Tablets in the
house at all times. When I began
giving them to my baby he was badly constipated, and always cross. He
is now four months old, has not
heen troubled with constipation since
I gave him the Tablets, and he is
now always happy and good natured.
Mothers with cross children will
easily appreciate such a change. T
enclose 50 cents for two more boxes
of the Tablets, nnd will never be
without them in the house while T
have children."

Tlio collection nf Assyrian nnd Rnhv-
lontan records at tlie British museum 1ms
revealed inure uf the domestic life of people who lived 5,000 years ago than is
known in the ease nf uur own countrymen 1,01)0 years ngo. Such was the opinion expressed by Mr. W. St. Chad Bos-
enwen when lie explaiued these relics to
an Interested audience. The clay bricks
and cylinders beneath the glass eases
were covered with characters testifying
to tt completely organized system of justice, marriage, divorce and commerce.
The bookkeeping of 5,000 years age
wns shown to be wonderfully accurate. A
curious form of record is that preserved
in tlie form of baked clay tablets, which
were inclosed in clay envelopes, also inscribed with the terms of the transaction, so that a double record provider]
against the possibilities of damage. The
"open and closed evidence" spoken of by
Jeremiah Is supposed to refer to this system. Tho practice of recording on a
brick the name of tbe king, of tbe building and of tlie city in which it wns being
erected has bad the advantage In modem days that nn odd brick may become
the means of disinterring a city hitherto
tin known.—London Chronicle.

Ilow   an   Illinois   Farmer   Prepares
His Corn Fodder,
It will be a loug time before the silo
becomes common among ordinary
farmers, says J. A. Milne in The Breeder's Gazette. Tlie large first cost, extra force of men nud great power required to fill it nnd some uncertainty
ns. to result nre nil arguments ngninst
it. The small fnrmer Is uut irally conservative and slow to adopt innovations.
I have a plan, simple, practical and
tested by the experience of several
yenrs, which, while I do not claim it Is
superior to the silo, will perhaps rec-
iiinineud Itself by those very qualities.
The plan Is this: Drill corn as thickly
as possible in single rows 3 feet 2
inches apart. Cut it with a corn harvester anil set It up in large sliockB,
20 to 25 bundles In a shock. Stack If
possible after Nov. 1. If It Is stneked
earlier, it may beat When needed, It
is passed through n feed cutter run by
'nurse power nud bundled by my own
help. There nre a grent many nubbins
.m the stalks, nnd altogether this
makes the best and cheapest feed I
have yet found. This season my fodder, part of it stneked In November
and part of It drawn from tlie shock
mly last week. Is in excellent condition, nnd my 40 milk cows are doing
nicely with no other roughness.   Any
no ran try this plan without extra ex-
icnse or n  radical change of plana,
vhlch is not true of the silo.

Process   Too   EtxoenslTe.
TViU'ts nre curious thlugs. They
come nntl go mysteriously, although
their going is frequently marked by
exasperating delays, and there are almost as many Infallible cures as there
are worts, the only trouble with tliose
cures being that they are useless when
applied lo tlie particular wart pou happen to have. They are only good for
other people's.
"In my opinion,' said a clubman who
was discussing the subject with a
friend one day, "a wart is merely the
outward correspondence of some mental excrescence. Get rid of that, aud
it goes away.
"Let me give you a bit of my own
experience," lie continued. "Last year j
I went to Europe. For about three '
years I had had a wart on my little fin- j
ger, on which I had tried everything I j
could hear of, but without effect. It ':
ouly grew larger.
"Well, iu the excitement of preparing
for the trip and of the journey itself 1
forgot all about my wart, aud when I i
looked for it about six weeks later it J
had   vanished   without   leaving   the |
slightest mark.   I simply forgot it, and I
it had no mental condition to feed ou.
I see you have one on the back of your
hand.    Forget all about it for a few
weeks, and it will go awny of itself."
"Ves," said the other clubman, shrug- ,
glng his shoulders, "but I can't afford
to take a trip to Europe for tlie sake of
curing one wart." i
SewiiiK Dune  by  Ants.
Ants are credited with so many marvelous accomplishments thnt a new one
must be remarkable to the noteworthy.
Mr. E. G. Green of Ceylon, an authority upon Insect habits, has, however,
made an observation wlileh Is well
worth putting on record. He has watched red ants holding grubs In their
mouths and using the web they spin to
repair a rent iaa their nest.
Some leaves which had been fastened
together by the ants were separated by
Mr. Green, and in n short time after he
saw small white grubs being passed
backward and forward across the gap.
Closer observation showed that each
grub was held in lhe jaws of one of the
worker ants, and its movements were
directed as rot] u I red. A continuous
thread of silk issued from the mouth of
each grub and was used by the ants to
sew up the rent in their shelter.
There were no grubs in the neighborhood, and those nsetl were obtained
from a nest at some distance. This deliberate use of a naturally formed web
as a sewing thread is as astonishing as
any instanep of the Intelligence of ants
yet observed.
