ABOUT   OURSELVES.
We are presenting our readers with several new features in this week's issue of the
Prospector.
On the Inside page we give tt discourse by
Ihe world-famed be Will Talmnge*. The
desire of some of our subscribers for a little
Sunday reading is (bus met in lhe best way
possible to us at present.
In order to supply more reading matter
we Iip.v.' increased the outside pages from five
to six columns.
The most conspicuous improvement of all
U the engraving of our town on the front
page. If ii clear reproduction can be secured it will present to the view a scene of
which we are justly proud. It will also be
of interest to readers of the Prospector who,
having visited Lillooet in past years, now
wish to renew acquaintance with thc place,
and to note the improvements of recent
months.
It was found impossible to secure a good
portrait ot the Fraser valley, with a front
view of the towi***, so the latter suffers somewhat in consequence, but the advantage is
gained of hating the river for a backgipund,
while the mountain, on ench side serve as
frames for the picturesque scene.
We are sorry that thc engraving cannot
include the extreme cast and west portions
of the lown, together with ihe ranches of
Dr. Sanson and Mr. Brett. However, ns we
give it, the scene is quiie comprehensive,
and lhc effort to produce it, will we believe,
be appreciated.
We are determined to make each number
ol" this paper worth the four cents paid for it.
If thc subscriptions continue to conic in as
they have recently we shall be able to turn
out a good paper. Rend lhc offer wc make
in this issue, and you will see thai wc mean
to keep our word.

THE  BOER WAR.
The general manager of the 0. P, B.

men. So far as is known no advance
in wages is to be granted.
Fountain Mine
A very serious mishap occurred last
week at this mine. The cable bridge
across the Fraser suddenly gave wny,
nnd fell into the river, carrying with
it about 700 feet of piping. It la supposed that the clips which fastened the
cable to the rocks loosened. Luckily
the ends of the cable caught close to
the river's edge, thus preventing the
structure from rushing down stream.
Mr. S uithard at once set to work, and
had th« bridge pulled back into position. He has enough 7 inch pipe to
continue work, hut has had to order
another shipment of 11 in?b, which
will take souie time in arriving.
Thie delay is particularly unfortunate, coming as it does just at the time
when Mr. Southard had commenced
actie work in good ground. However
as Mr. Southard has an inexhaustible
supply of perseverance, it will not be
long before things are in first class
shape  again.
A Montreal magnate recently at Rosb-
hind was making a lament to a local
bank mauager. The Montreal magnate
said:—
"Capitalists like myself have losl
millions in mining in British Columbia."
The bank manager replied: —
" O, come ofi the perch; you people
make ine dead tired. The whole outfit of yon from Montreal and Toronto
have dug up less than three millions for
mining iu British Columbia. Y..u have
purchased shares iu mining companies
Irom each other and lost money, but
you have not lost a dollar through purchasing and working mines. You have
allowed sharp American mining meu
lo cold .leek you at a game you did not
understand, and now yon come out
here whining about the millions that
the mines of British Columbia cost you
when, as a matter of fact, you haven't
the nerve to take hold of a piece of
property aud lake chances of making
a mine of it.
It is not reported what the magnate
said in reply.
The reports ol Loid Kitchener have
lately caused deep sorrow throughout
the Province. Among the latest casualties are those of Trooper Sproule of
Fori Sleele, Trooper Begg, of Revelstoke
killed, and Trooper Melnlyreoi Revelstoke, Troopers Curtis and Gravely, of
Nelson, and Trooper Herchmer, of
Rossland.

larey, bas been captured by the British,
The Boers have blown v.p a train

daleur, a promising yo.ing Irish ollleer
was among the killed.
After a certain church conference,
held not long ago, two brother ministers had a friendly tilt, regarding one
of Shakespeare's plays. They could
not settle the point, and one of them
remarked jokingly, "Oh, well brother,
I will ask Shakespeare when I meet
him in heaven." "But supposing
Shakespeare did not get to heaven?"
retorted the other. "Then you can ask
him about it," was tbe quick reply.
There are organists and organists.
The organist of the church was little
Margie's guest, and at dinner Bhe said
to him. "Do you play the organ?"
"Ye». my dear," was tbe reply. Then
gravely inquired the little miss, "where
is your monkey?"

St.   Paul's  Remarkable  Escape
From Damascus.
PATIENT, UNCOMPLAINING WORK
Iter. Dr. Talmace Shows on What a Slender Tenure Gnat Results Huue—All
the Aces of Timo nnd Kternity Affected by the simple Incident ou the Willi
of Damascus.
Washington, Aug. 25.—A Bible incident not often noticed is here used
by Dr. Talmngo to set. forth practical and be.mt iiul truth; lu.\t. Ii Corinthians .\i. 88, ■Througli a window
in  u  basket wus  1  lot down by   the
Willi."
Sermons on Paul in Jail, Paul on
Mars hill, Paul ill the shipwreck,
Paul before the snnhedrin, Paul before Felix, nie plentiful, but. in my
text we  have Paul   iu a basket.
Damascus is a city of white and
glistening architecture, sometimes
called "the eye of the east," sometimes called "u pearl surrounded by
emeralds,'" nt one time distinguished
for swords of the best material, called Damascus blades, nml upholstery
of richest fabric culled damask. A
horseman of the name of Saul, riding toward this city, had been
thrown from the saddle. The horse
hud dropped under a flash from the
sky, which nt the same time was so
bright it blinded the rider for mnny
days nnd, I think, so permanently
injured his eyesight that this tlefect
of vision became the thorn in the
flesh ho afterwards speaks of. lie
sturtetl for Damascus to butcher
Christians, but after that hard fall
from his horse he was a changed
man and preached Christ in Damascus till the city wus shaken to
its foundation.
Tho mayor gives authority for his
arrest, nnd the popular cry i.s: "Kill
him! Kill him!" The city is surrounded by ti hi[*h wall and the
gates nre watched by the police lest
the Cilician preacher escape. Many
of the houses are built on thc wall,
and their balconies projected clear
over and hovered above the gardens
outside. It was customary to lower baskets out of these balconies and
pull up fruits antl flowers from the
gardens. To this day visitors at
thc monastery of Mount Sinai are
lifted and let down in baskets. Detectives prowled around from house
to house, looking for Paul, but his
friends hid him, now in one place,
now in another. lie is no coward,
ns 50 incidents in his life demonstrate, but he feels his work is not
done yet and so he evades assassination. "Is thut preacher here?" the
foaming mob shout at one house
door. "Is thut fanatic here?" the
police shout at another house door.
Sometimes ou the street incognito he
passes through u cloud of clinched
fists and sometimes he secretes himself on the house  fop.
At lust the Infuriate populace get
on sure truck of him. They have
positive evidence thot he is in thc
bouse of one of tin1 Christians, the
balcony of whose home reaches over
the wall. "Hero he is! Here he
is!" The vociferation und blasphemy und howling of the pursuers
nre nt lie- front dour. They break
in. "Fetch oui Unit gospollzer and
let us hang his head on the city
gate. Where is he'.'" The emergency
wus terrible. Providontially there
was a good si out. basket in the
house. Paul's friends fasten a rope
to th" basket. Paul steps into it.
The basket is lifted lo the edge of
the balcony on the wall, and then
while Puul holds the rope with both
hands his friends lower away, carefully uud cautiously, slowly but
surely, farther down uud farther
down, until the basket strikes the
earth uud the upostle steps out and
afoot und alone starts on thut famous missionary tour the story of
which has astonished earth and heaven. Appropriate entry in Paul's
diary of travels: "Through a window in n basket wns I let down by
the wull."
1 observe first on what a slender
tenure grent results hung. Tho
ropemaker who twisted thnt cord
fastened to thnt lowering basket
never knew how much would depend
upon the strength of it. How if it
hnd been broken nnd the apostle's
life hnd been dashed out? What
would have become of the Christian
Church? All the magnificent missionary work in Pamphylia, Cappa-
docin,      Qalatla,  Macedonia     would
never  have   I it  accomplished,     All
his writings tlmt make up so intlis-
pensable mid enchanting u part of
the New Testament would never
have b"en written. The story of resurrection would never have been so
gloriously told ns he told it. 'Phut
example of heroic nnd triumphant
endurance nt Phillppi, in the Mediterranean Euroclydon, under flagellation, nnd nl. his beheading, would
not hove kindled the courage of 10,-
Otin martyrdoms Hut that rope
holding thai basket, how much depended on if! So again and ugain
great results have hung on slender
circumstances.
The parsonage at Epworth, F.ng-
lnntl. is on lire in the night, und the
father rushed through the hallway
for the rescue of his children. Seven
children aro out and safe on the
ground, but, one remains in the consuming building. That one awakes
and, finding his bed on fire and tho
building crumbling, comes to thu
wintlow, and two peasants mnke a
ladder of their bodies, one peasant
standing on the shoulder of the other, nntl tlown the human ladder the
boy descends—lohn Wesley. If you
would know how much depended on
that ladder of peasants, nsk tlie millions of Methodists on both sides of
the sea. Ask their mission stations
nil around tiie world. Ask their
hundreds of thousands already ascended to join their founder. who
would have perished but for the living stairs of peasants' shoulders.
An English ship stopped nt Pit-
cairn Island, antl right in the midst
of     surrounding    cannibalism    and
squalor the passengers discovered a
Christian colony of churches and
schools and beautiful homes and
highest style of religion and civilization. For 50 years no missionary and no Christian influence had landed there.
Why this oasis of light amid a desert of heathendom? Sixty years before a ship hud met disaster', nnd one
of the sailors, unable to save anything else, went, to his trunk and
took out a Dible which his mother
had placed there und swam ashore,
the llible held in his teeth. The
book was read on all skies until tho
rough antl vicious population were
evangelized, nntl a church wus started mul un enlightened commonwealth
established, anil the world's history
bus no more brilliant page than that
which tells of the transformation of
a nation by one book. It ditl not
seem of much importance whether
the sailor continued lo hold the book
in his teeth or let it full in the
breakers, but upon what small cir-
cuinstniiccs depended what mighty results!
practical inference: There lire no
insignificances in life- Tlie minutest
tning is part of a magnitude .Infinity is mado up of infinitesimals;
great tilings nn aggregation of small
things. Bethlehem manger pulling on
a star in the eastern sky. tine book
in a drenched sudor's mouth the
evangelization of a multitude. One
boat of papyrus on the .Nile freighted
with events for ull ages, The fate of
Christendom in o basket let down
from a window on the wall. What
you tlo, do well If you make a rope,
make it strong uiul true, for you
know not how much may depend on
your workmanship. If you fashion
it ba»at, let it l»e waterproof, for you
know not who may sail in it. If you
put a Pible in the trunk of your boy
ns he goes from home, let it be remembered in your prayers, for it may
have a mission us far-reaching as
the book which the sailor carried in
bis teeth to the' l'itciiirn bench. Tho
plainest man's life is uu island between two eternities—eternity past
rippling against his shoulders, eternity to come touching his brow. Tho
casual, the accidental, thut which
merely' happened so, are parts oi a
great plan, nntl the rope that lets the
fugitive apostle from the Damascus
wull is the cubic that holds to its
mooring the ship of the church iu
the storm of the centuries.
There are said to be about a hundred ami fifty thousand ministers of
religion in this country. About 80,-
000, I warrant, came from early
homes which hud to struggle for the
necessaries of lifo. The sons of rich
bunkers and merchants generally bo-
come bankers antl merchants. The
most of those wdio become ministers
ure the sons of those who had terrific struggle to get their everyday
bread. The collegiate and theological
education of that son took every luxury from the parental table for eight
years. The other children were more
scantily apparelled. The son at college every little while got a bundlo
from Inline. In it were the socks that
mother had knit sifting up late at
night, her sight not as good as once
it was, Antl Ulcre also were some delicacies from tbe sister's hand for
thu voracious appetite of a hungry
student. The father swung the heavy
cradle through the wheat, the sweat
rolling from his chin bedewing every
step of the way, and then sitting
tlown under the cherry tree nt noon,
thinking to himself, "I um fearfully
tired, but it will pay if I can once
see that boy through college, nnd if
1 can know that he will be preaching
the gospel after 1 am dead." The
younger children want to know wdiy
thoy can't have this nnd ihnt, ns
others do, und ilu: mother snys "De
patient, my children, until your
brother graduates, nud then you will
have more luxuries, but we must
see  that boy  through."
The years go b.v, and the son has
been ordained and is preaching the
glorious gospel, antl a great revival
comes, antl souls by scores nntl hundreds accept the gospel i'"om the lips
of that young preacher, nnd father
and mother, quite old now, me visiting the son at thu vi lingo purson-
nge, und nt the close of a Sabbath
of mighty blessing, father ami mother
retire to their room, tlie son lighting the way nntl asking them if he
can tlo anything to mnke them more
comfortable, saying if they want
anything in the night just to knock
on the wuli, and then, ull alone,
father anil mother talk over
I lie glorious influences of the
day nntl       sny:        • Well. it
was worth nil we went through to
educate that boy. It was a bard
pull, but we held ou till the work
wus done. The world may not know
it, but, mother, we held the rope,
didn't wc?" And the voice, tremulous with joyful emotion, responds:
"Yes, father, we held the rope. I
feel my work is done. Now, Lord,
lcttest thou thy servant depart in
peace, for mine eyes hnve Been thy
salvation." "Pshawl" says the
father. "I never felt so much like
living In my life as now. I want
to see what that fellow i.s going to
do,  he bus  begun so well,"
0 men nnd Women, you brag sometimes how you have fought your
way in the world, but I think there
have been helpful Influences that
you havo never fully acknowledged,
lias there not been some Influence in
your early or present, home that tho
world cannot see? Does there not
reach you from among the New
England hills or from tiie western
prairie or from soul hern plantation
or from English or Scottish or Irish home a cord of influence that has
kept you right wdien you would have
gone astray ami which, after you
had made a crooked track, recalled
you? The rope may be us long ns
30 yenrs or 500 miles long or 11,000
miles long, but hands that went out
of mortal sight long ago still hold
tho rope. You want a very swift
horse, and you need to rowel him
with sharpest spurs nnd to let the
reins lie loose upon thc neck anil
to give a shout to the racer if you
are going to ride out of reach of
your mother's prayers. Why, a ship
crossing the Atlantic in six days
can't sail uway from thnt. A sailor finds them on the lookout us he
takes his place nntl finds them on
♦.he  mast   as  he  c'imbs   the  ratlines
to disentangle a rope In the tempest
und finds them swinging on tho hammock when he turns in. Why not
be frank nml acknowledge it? The
most of us would long ago have been
dashed to pieces had not grucious
and loving hnnds steadily antl lovingly and mightily held the rope.
Dut there must come a time when
we shall find out who these Damascenes were who lowered Paul in the
basket, antl greet them and all those
wdio have rendered to God und the
world unrecognized nntl unrecorded
services. That is going to be one of
the glut! excitements of heaven, the
hunting up and picking out of those
who ditl great gootl on earth and
got no credit for it. Here the
church hns been going on 19 centuries, and yet the world has not
recognized the services of the people
.in that Damascus balcony. Charles
(!. Finney said to a dying Christian,
"Give my love to St. Paul when
you meet him." When you and I
meet him, ns we will, j shall ask
him to introduce ine to those who
got him out of the Damascene poril.
We go into long sermons to prove
that we will be able to recognize
people in henven. when there is one
reason wc fail to present, and that
is better than all—God will introduce us. We shall hnve them all
pointed out. You would not bo
guilty of the impoliteness of having
friends in your parlor not introduced, and celestial politeness will
demand that we be made acquainted
with all the heavenly household.
What rehearsal of old times nntl recital of stirring reminiscences! If
others fail to give introduction, God
will take us throi»gh, and before our
first 1! I hours in henven—if it were
calculated by earthly timepieces —
have passed we shall meet nnd talk
with more heavenly celebrities thnn
in our entire mortal state we met
with earthy celebrities. Many who
made great noise of usefulness will
sit on the last seat by the front
door of tiie heavenly temple, while
right up within arm's reach of the
heavenly throne will be muny who,
though they could not reach themselves or tlo groat exploits for Cod,
nevertheless held the rope.
Come, lot us go right up and accost those on tint circle of heavenly
thrones. Surely     thoy   must,  have
killed in battle a million men. Surely they must have been buried with
all the cathedrals sounding a dirge
and all the towers of nil the cities
tolling the national grief. Who art
thou, mighty one of henven? "I
lived by choice the unmarried daughter in a humble home thut 1 might
take cure of my parents in their old
nge, antl I endured without complaint nil their querulousness nntl
administered t.o ull their wants for
20 years." Let us puss on round
tho circle of thrones. Who art
thou, mighty one of heaven? "I
wns for .'1(1 years a Christian invalid and suffered all the while, occasionally writing a note of sympathy
for those worse off than I, and was
general confidant of all those who
hail trouble, nntl once in awhile I
was strong enough to make a garment for thut. poor family in tho
buck hiue." Puss on to another
throne. Who art thou, mighty one
of heaven? "I wns the mother who
raised a whole family of children for
God, and they ure out in the world
Christian merchants, Christian mechanics, Christian wives, and I have
hud full reward for ali my toil."
Let us pass on in the circle of
thrones. "f had a Sabbath school
class antl they were always on my
heart, ami they ull entered the Kingdom of God, and I um waiting for
their arrival." Dut who are thou,
the mighty one of heaven on this
oilier throne? "in time of bitter
persecution I owned a house in Damascus, a house on Hm wall. A
man who preached Christ was
hounded from street to street and I
hitl him from Hie assassins, and
when I found them breaking into my
house und I could no longer keep
him safely I advised him to llee for
his life, nntl a basket was let down
over the wall with the maltreated
man in it, and I was one who helped
hold tlie rope." And I suid: "is
that all?" Antl he answered: "Tint
is nil " Antl while I wus lost in
amazement I heard a strong voice
that Bounded us though it might
once hnve been bourse from many
exposures, nntl triumphant us though
it might have belonged to one of
the martyrs, nnd it suid: "Not
many mighty, not mnny noble are
called, but Cod hath chosen the
wenk things of the world to confound the things which nre mighty,
nnd base things of Hie world and
things which are despised hath Gotl
Chosen, yea, and things which ure not
to bring to naught things which are.
that no flesh should glory in his
presence." Ami I looked to see from
whence the voice came, nntl lo! it
was the very one who hud said,
"Through a wintlow in a basket wus
I let down by the wall."
Henceforth think of nothing ns insignificant. A little thing may decide
your nil. A Cunardor put out from
England for .New York. It was wt 11
equipped, but in putting up a stove
in the pilot box a nail wns driven
too near tlie compass. You know

CARD PLAYERS' CRAMP.
Pure Hnliiillica
V.'hnt Once Happened to rm Old Faro
Dealer's Hnnd.
"Were you over paralyzed?" said the
old timer.
"No, and may the"— began the other.
"Well, you see that right baud? It
looks pretty good and strong nnd it is,
but for about three days once it was
deader than a frostbitten tomato plant.
"You know of course that I usetl to
make my living playing cards, cbielly
dealing bank. There wasn't a day I
didn't deal bank or in other games six
to eight hours a day. Many a time I
hnve dealt or played longer.
"One night I was dealing bank. It
was a gootl, big game. All nt once
when I went to slip a card this old
right refused to work. I looked at it
nnd the lingers were kind of twisted
Inward and the hand from the wrist
was bent downward.
"This stopped the deal for me, nnd I
told the lookout 'to get busy,' for tne
players were getting a litlle 'queered.'
Ile took my place, and I watched the
bets.
"I rubbed my right, but It wouldn't
straighten out nml It kept this wny
until the next day, and then I went to
a doctor. He didn't know me as well
as you do, but the first question he
nsked was:
" 'Deal cards a great deal, don't you?"
" 'Yes.'
"'Do you deal with an elbow movement or with finger and wrist movement?"
" 'Why, I don't work my elbow.'
" 'That explains It. You have card
players' paralysis.'
"This hit me center, and I showed It,
but the doctor was good and saitl:
" 'Now, dou't get flurried. I'll
straighten you up. Just quit dealing
awhile, and I'll give your hand a few
doses of electricity, aud you'll be all
right.'
"He did It. nnd in nbout three days
my band was straight as a string. But
1 haven't dealt so much since. There's
many nn old timer wdiose dealing hand
has quit him. And you say you were
never paralyzed?"
"No."
"Well, you aiu't played cards much."
Military  Pyrotechnic..
"Under cover of darkness the enemy
advanced." Not any more, If French
military experiments prove what they
promise. The war department Is now
firing an Illuminating shell that bursts
In the air antl emits a fiery body of
globular shape which vividly lights up
a large area for a considerable time.
The experiments are for the purpose
of Improving aud perfecting bombs
that are now mnde for the purpose of
exposing the position of an enemy at
night and to reveal the character of defenses to be attacked. These projectiles
explode on Impact, liberating u tlamlng
compound. One compound, consisting
of sulphur, saltpeter and a hydrocarbon, Is a blue light mixture. The Illumination lasts as long as the saltpeter
supplies the oxygen to maintain combustion.
Experiments are also under way for
a reverse sort of b nib which In bursting liberates dense clouds of smoke
for the purpose of concealing the movements of troops iu the field. This Is to
be nn antidote to the former bane.
A Happy Hour.
You are wrong; you should not accuse the churches because the usher
showed you to a back seat, because
you could not understand the choir,
because the minister was prodigious
rather than religious. There are
good churches, there are good ministers, there are good choirs in Toronto.
My friend was right.
On Sunday morning, acting on his
advice, I went to church. Twice before I had been seated in the rear,
once a pillar reared its stately head
and eclipsed the parson; again, a
large hat reared its forest of feathers and fashion, und I gazed through
it, and beneath it, but above it
never.
On this occasion tho usher was
good to mc, took me on and on and
led mo a merry hundred yards' dash
to the front. I thought he was going to tho pulpit, but he stopped at
the best seat in the church, and
handed me a smile ami a hymn book.
The organist touched the organ, and
it preached in soft tremulous tones.
The choir joinetl it, and there was
harmony, melody, joy, gladness, and
hope in their singing. No step ladder wns needed to follow them, nor
did they sing in hieroglyphics: they
told tbe old, old story, and not ono
word was lost in the telling. As the
minister prayed I watched that
choir. Tho soprano was not rattling
her music nntl chatting with thc contralto; from the base to the tiniest
treble the singers were silent. Tho
minister was dressed like an ordinary devil-tempted mortal, wore
short hair, and parted it on tho
side. He told the story of life as it
should be, of thc brotherhood of
man, of the blessedness of toil. He
took a millionaire with soft hands
and a hard heart and hung him over
the pulpit. Ho held an honest, earnest laborer, with hard hands and a
soft heart, and deified labor by the
sweat of the hw till I envied the
laborer. Tho sermon was running
over with unadorned simplicity, with
sanctified common sense, chuck full
of the old Ccncsis to Revelation Gospel that makes sinners squirm and
saints sing. After the collection, after a good, old-fashioned hymn, a
soloist preached another sermon in
tho same sweet way, singing from
tho heart, which she reached. Some
ono came up and shook my hand,
told me they were glad to see me,
and left    me with  a smile. That
smile enme from a good soul. It was
a benediction that shone from those
eyes. Thnt was two smiles und a
hymn book, besides several sermons.

Mr. Beddard of the Loudon Zoological society calls attention to a peculiarity of tbe ears of tigers which he
thinks may be classed under the head
of "protective markings." On the back
of each ear Is a very bright white spot,
alid when the ears are directed forward these spots are conspicuous from
the front, Mr. Beddard suggests that
when the tiger Is sleeping ill tbe dim

its ears may appear to tin enemy, looking In. as the gleam of its watchful

•"How did your brother get all

SOUTHERN MOUNTAINEERS.
The   Part   Tbey   Played   In   tke  War
llclwecn the StKten.
It Is odd to think that the southern
mountaineer wns uot discovered until
the outbreak of the civil wnr, although
he was ucarly a century old then, and
It Is really startling to realize tbat
when oue speaks of the southern mountaineers be speaks of nearly 3,000,1)00
people wbo live In eight southern
states—Virginia and Alabama aud the
southern stales betweeu—and occupy
a region equnl in area to the combined
nreas of Ohio aud Pennsylvania, aa
big. say, ns tbe German empire, and
richer, perhaps, in timber and mineral
deposits than any other region of similar extent In the world. This region
was and is an unknown land. It has
been aptly called Appalachian America, and the work or discovery is yet
going on.
The American mountaineer was discovered. I say, at the beginning of the
war, when the Confederate leaders
were counting on the presumption that
Mason and Dixon's line was the dividing line betweeu the north ami south
and formed, therefore, tbe plan of
inarching an army from Wheeling to
some point on the lakes and thus dissevering the north at one blow. The
plan seemed so feasible that It Is said
to have materially aided the sale of
Confederate bonds lu England, but
when Captain Garuett, a West Point
graduate, sturtetl to carry It out he got
no farther than Harpers Perry. When
he struck the mountains, he struck enemies who shot at his men from ambush, cut down bridges before him,
carried the news of bis march to the
federals, and Garuett himself fell
wilh a bullet from a mountaineer's
squirrel rifle at Llarpers Ferry.—Scrib-

MOBILIZING THE IIAKVESTEKS.
The Toronto Hail and Empire says:
On tlu harvest excursion trains already despatched for tho Canadian
Northwest upwards of <J,000 men
have token passage. There are more
to follow. By the end of August it
is expected that 20,000 Canadians
from this side of the great lakes will
bo working in our prairie wheat
fields. This speedy mobilization of
so groat an industrial force collected
from all parts of Ontario upon a
point 1,500 miles away is highly
creditable to tho Canadian Pacific
Railway company. Upon its pre-
parodness to handle tho men promptly in such large bodies, as well as
upon Its direct efforts to muster
them, depended largely the chances
of got ting the whole crop to tho
threshing floor. Hud Lhe company
boon dilatory in taking measures to
enlist men, had its truck, motive
power, or rolling stock boon found
wanting, or had its enterprise in any
respect boon backward at this mo-
mont, a groat part of tho crop might
have neen lost, notwithstanding the
readiness of thousands of hands to
assist in taking it oil. Had the railway company oven asked a few dollars more for its harvest excursion
tickets, the difference might have
been unfortunate for the Western fnr-
mers. It might have cut off a large
proportion of tho men now going
forward, and have thus reduced the
army oi workers to numbers too
Email for tho magnitude of thc oper-
ntions. As a connector of the labor
demand and labor supply, separated
by about 1,500 miles, the railway
was nol. loss essential than either of
them. Had farm labor boon in demand hero at wages equal to tho
best Manitoba could afford to n-.v,
and had there been no other motive
but. tempting wugrs to draw men
from Ontario, It is probable that the
railway company would have been
willing to transport harvest, hands
to the Northwest for nothing. It
could belter afford to do so than to
stand Idly by and let tho crop rot in
the ground. It hus an Interest in tho
wheat scarcely h'ss proprietary than
that of the growers themselves. For
its own profit it is bound to bestir
i I soli I o get the grain all brought
in. Manitoba wheat furnishes the
main tonnage of the road's freight,
and is tho chief source of its earnings. At. this particular time of year
—after Um Ontario grain is housed—
Eastern Canada has men lo spare.
Combined wiih their desire to make
some money in a second harvest,
there is often a wish to become acquainted with tho country before deciding to cast in one's lot then1.
Such being tho circumstances, the
railway company's rate is mil found
to bo too high. While, no doubt,
many of the harvesters from Iho oast
will decide to remain in the country
or to move back to it after returning home, the majority will quit the
wist when the harvest is over. They
will come back expecting lo lind
steady work in tho manufacturing
and building industries during tho
season nf autumn activity. Nor is
the money thoy bring back with
them io he despised. Twenty thousand men working six wv-'ks ror ?-l0
a month and their board would receive $1,200,000 in wages. lH-ducl-
jng from this the cost of transportation—$1C up nnd SIS back for each
of tin- 211.000 men—wo have left
$64.0,000, which should In- brought
back to the east. Ontario is un
ready lo send contingents of stalwart toilers to nssist Manitoba In
the peaceful work of harvesting its
crop as she was lo send regiments
of first-class fighting men tn serve

flelds of South Africa.

A UNIQUE SENTENCE.
THE NOVEL PENALTY A JUDGE IMPOSED UPON TWO MEN.
Iloth PrlHOnera Were Condemned to
.lull Until One nt Them, - College
Grudunte, Tiitinlit the lllh*. Uow to
Keud aud Write.
Along In the seventies tlie late Judge
Arnold Krekel was holding court at
Jefferson City, relates an old timer,
when there appeared before him two
men charged and Indicted for a violation of the United States laws, oue of
whom will be called Brown. lie was
charged with cutting timber on tlie
public domain. Brown was about -10
years old and had been reared mi the
border In Arkansas nnd never had any
opportunities for schooling, hence was
unable to read or write. In Iii* endeavors to get a living he bad cut timber suitable for making ax bandies en
United States lands, which led to bis
arrest and Imprisonment The other
mnn will be called Jones, for the real
name of both men are not known io
the memory of any one who witnessed
the Incident.
Jones was charged with and Indicted
for having sold llipior to the Indians.
Mr. Jones was a native of New York,
a graduate of Union college and was
educated for a lawyer. lie possessed
a highly cultured mind, a good Latin-
1st and thoroughly scholarly lu nil
sorts of books. Not succeeding in liis
profession in his native stale, more
from lack of application than otherwise, he left that country and plunged
Into the great west and located nobody knew where, but he drifted Into
the lower strata of society, and to ob
tain the necessaries of life he resorted
to "bootlegging" among (he red men
of tbe Indian Territory border. His
arrest and imprisonment followed.
The two men were arraigned before
Judge Krekel and the Indictments
rend. Tbey both pleaded guilty and
threw themselves upon the mercy of
the court. The court questioned both
prisoners at length und drew from
each liis history. He recounted the
wrongs tbey had been guilty of agalusl
society. Ue did this In a kindly tone
nnd manner, suggesting in a mild form
that both might have been useful mem
bers of some community had tbey
Bought honorable means and methods
to secure a livelihood.
The court seemed puzzled how to its
Bess a punishment that would meet the
ends of Justice and protect the govern
meut, its lands, Its wards and BOciety
Finally, sitting upright in his chair,
looking over his glasses as both men
stood before him, in a voice little loud
er and more positive than usual In
said:
"Mr. Brown, It la the sentence of the
court that you be confined In lhe Cole
county Jail until you are educated to
read and write." The Judge then turn
ed his eyes upon the other prisoner at
the bar and. possibly In a louder voice,
said. "Mr. Jones, it Is tbe sentence of
the court that you be confined In the
Cole county Jail until you have taught
Mr. Brown to read and write, and I
enjoin upon tbe keeper of the Jail to
al'lord you every facility possible with
the safe keeping of bis prisoners."
The lawyers and spectators In court
looked with astonishment at each oili
er as the sentence was concluded, and
the marshal led the prisoners out ol
the courtroom.
It was tbe second term of the court
after this Incident when tbe marshal
conducted Brown nnd Jones Into court,
and It was announced by tbe court
that Brown bad completed bis education—ready to graduate—able to read
and write. Judge Krekel looked over
hi» glasses and asked that the prisoner
give him an evidence of Ills being able
to read. Brown stood up and rend a
few paragraphs from a newspaper to
tlie satisfaction of the court, when be
said, "Mr. Clerk, will you let him sit
at a table and write me a letter'/"
Paper, pen, Ink and a seat were furnished Brown, who went to work to
write a letter to the court. For some
time the poor fellow struggled with
the task, and In the meantime Jones
was very nervous, fearing he would
be compelled to go back to Jail and
"lake up school" again. Finally tbe
clerk said. "May It please your honor,
the prisoner can write, but cannot form
sentences to make It intelligible."
"Mr. Clerk." said the court, not tnk
ing his eyes from the court docket be
was looking nt, "you will dictate a letter for blm and see whnt headway he
makes with tbat." The clerk dictated a
letter that the prisoner wrote quite
nadlly, which subsequently was pass
ed up to tbo court, who rend the sniui'.

SHOWS   THAT   THE BLOOD   AND
NERVES NEED TONING UP.
This Condition Causes More Genuine
Suffering Than One Can Imagine
—How a Well Known Exeter
Lady Obtained a Cure After She
Had Begun to Regard Her Condition ns Hopeless.
From  the Advocate,   Exotcr,   Ont.
"A run down system !" What a
world of misery thosi- few words imply nml yet there aro thousands
throughout this country who nn-suffering from this condition. Their
blood is poor and watery; they suffer almost continuously from headaches : are unable to obtain restful
sleep and the least exertion greatly
fatigues them. What is needed to
put the system right is n Ionic, and
experience has proved Br. Williams'
I'_k I'iils to bo One only never-failing tonic and health restorer.
Mrs. Henry Parsons, a respected
resident of Exeter, Ont., is one of
tic- many who have tested and
proved the value of Dr. Williams'
I'ltik Pills. For many months she
was a great sufferer from whnt is
commonly termed "a run down system." To a reporter of the Advocate she gave the following story fn
the hope that other sufferers might
benefit from hor experience :—"For
many months niy health was in a
bod state, my constitution being
greatly run down. I was troubled
wi.li continual headaches, my appetite was poor and the least exertion
greatly fatigued me. I consulted a
physician, but his treatment, did not
appear to benefit me and T gradually
became worse, so that I could hardly
at I end to my household duties. I
then tried several advertised rome-
bis. but without result, and T began
to regard my condition as hopeless.
A neighbor called to see mo one day
and urged me to fry Dr. Williams'
Dink Pills. Having tried so many
medicines without receiving benefit.. 1
mis rm; easily persuaded, but finally
T consented to give thc pills a trial.
To my surprise and great joy 1
nul iced an improvement in iny condition before I bad finished lhe first
box, and by the time 1 hnd taken
ftor boxes of the pills I was fully
ris'oi-ed to health. I no longer suffer5 from those severe headaches, my
appetite is good, I can go ahout my
hot sehold duties without the least
trouble; in fact I feel like a new
-,/oman. All this I owe lo that best.
of all medicines, Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and I would strongly urge
other sulTerors to give them atrial."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are recognized the world over as the best
blood and nerve tonic, nnd it is this
power of acting directly on tbe blood
and nerves which enables these pills
to cure such diseases as locomotor
ataxia, paralysis, St. Vitus' dance,
sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous headache, the after effects of
la. grippe, palpitation of the heart,
that tired feeling resulting from nervous prostration: all diseases resulting front vitiated humors In the

»_•   Mrthixln    l>>    Which   They   Art,
Teste.] by Experts.
In a lecture on precious Btones recently delivered before the Industrial
association of Berlin, Dr. Inmmiiue}
Frledlaender said that tbe testing of
diamonds Is comparatively simple. Tbo
common test for bardness sullices. It
the stiinc resists strong attacks, it la
certain to be genuine; if it does not,,
the damage Is lnslgnllicant, as only an
Imitation bas been destroyed. This
test, however, is doubtful with rubles.
If a ruby can be affected Ly a stc-.-J
tile or by quartz, It is surely not genuine, but such a test with a topaz is
liable to injure a valuable stone.
The test for hardness is of no avail
with emeralds, us this stone is net
much harder than i|iinrtz and In addition possesses tlie quality of cracking
easily.
For examining rubies and emeralds
the optical test is best. A glass magnifying about 100 times sullices. Every expert knows that almost all precious stones have little flaws. Nearly
every ruby and all emeralds have
many defects, which are so characteristic that tike genuineness of the stones
Is readily established. Such a test isi
very necessary with rubies, bocauso
the Imitations are very deceiving.
Their color Is absolutely durable and
oft.cn much finer than that of the genuine, although It mar be stated tbat a
somewhat yellowish tint is always snsr
picious.
The only reliable way In which ge:r>
uine rubies cnn be told from imitations
is by the minute air bubbles of the latter, which become clearly visible under the magnifying glass. These are
not to be found In the natural gem.
On the other hand, the Imitations lack
certain defects characteristic of genuine rubies—certain vacuums, whose
outlines are much more Indistinct thnn
those of the air bubbles in imitations.
True emeralds have similar characteristic defects, such as inclosures of
liquids aud curious dendrites. Sapphires also show peculiar netlike formations.

TOE       OUTLOOK.
A flairs in Provincial pulitios have reached
9, critical stage by tlie povernmenl appoint*
Client of Mr. J. C, Brown ol" Westminster,
t« the position recently vacated by Hon. J.
Turner.
During the session of iqoi, there were
periods when the Punsmuir government
would have suffered defeat had not EOnte
members of the opposition vqted in fa*»or of
the ^uvenimpnt. The Premier now feeks
to reward those \\ho were fiiends in his time
of need. One of the chief oi" these friends is
Mr. Brown,
Regarding his coalition with Jos. Martin,
the Premier, so far, has been silent, and it
is against this coalition that the country seems
ta object. The Hon. Jas. Mc. Untie has resigned his seat in the Cabinet, Mr. Hunter,
of Cariboo, has expressed a preference to
resign rather than to accept any responsibility for the recent actions of the Premier.
Othdr members are expressing themselves tn
a similar strain. Meanwhile Mr. Brown
seeks re-election by lus Westminster.
We have not yei heard any declaration from
our I.iiiooet member in regard to his present
attitude towards Mr. Martin. Same are
curious o,n this point. We- have not reaohed
that stage. There arc graver matters. \Vc
believe that credit is due to Mr. Smith to:
recent jail improvements, but we do sincerely
trust that our caie for the dissolute, profligate,
and profane, will not exceed our practical
t?yrn,pathy for law-aW.Aing citizens who hate
sustained injuries. So (ar IhW has been the
case and it seems as if wc are rather unwilling
to change.
We would urge the matter of the erection
of the hospital in this town. It tt doubtful
whether the government will be sustained
when the house meets, and in the much-to-
hc-regretted case of an appeal to the people,
our member, if re-eUctedj may been live opposition side of the house, and unable to again
secure what has been offered for hospital pm-
poses. This (me question seems to need a
speedy settlement.

HEWS OF THE MINES,
ain iine
The serious mishap at this mine which
occurred two weeks ago, evidently was not
enough to get the best of Mr. Southard's
greal staying powers, as gold washing is
ncw heing proceeded with as if nothing had
happened, only seven days being lost by
the accident. Both pipe lines have been
epaired with everything running very satis?
ractorily,

»&'
Dr. A. S. Riackett, who has been swfi-
erinleiuling the work on the Alhamhia,
owped by Mr. Milton R.'Uhhun, for the past
sensor, arrived in lown last week from Cadwallader, accompanied by Prof. Rifenburg
nrtd Dr. Wilcox. In conversation with Dr.
I'vackelt. that gcnllcnian expressed great
confidence in the bridge K(ver section. He
stated lhat he had erery reason to be pleased
•■:'.'- the showing on the Alhambra, As an
evidence of this, he is now gone to California, whence he will probably go to London, to purchase a complete plant, consisting of a s,tamp mill, sleam-pumps, air-
compressors, for work next year.
Concerning the other claims on Bridge
River, Dr. Brackett was extremely hopeful.
He ventured to make lhe assertion that
there were $50,000 in gold in the dump
on the Lorne, wailing to be crusned, He
also gave il as his opinion that financial
matters alone were the cause of the present
flatness on Bridge River.
The above statements, coining from a
man who knows what he is talking about,
mean much to Lillooet. Their full mean-
ing will be comprehended without any
comment. Suffice it to say ihat it is now
unassured fact that investors have not lost
confidence in Bridge River properties, and
lhe impression that the bottom has fallen
out of Bridge River is entirely false.
BEND OK.
Messrs. D. F. D.tvi.s, K. Wilcox and \Y,
M. Brewer returned on Monday from Cadwallader where they had been viewing the
Bend Or property, TUe former gentlemen
expressed themselves as, highly pleased with
;be property, bul definite results of the
Visit ate not yel known.

A MODERN   FABLE,
Bv David Dalziel,
Once upou a time there was a Pros.
pector who struck a good claim away
out on the mountains, The ledge wag
leu feet wide and exiended as far as
the eye could see along the mountain
side. As lie could not hold it all ia
his own name, he staked out claims
fur all ins relations clear back tt tbe
time of Noan, and to the tuird and
1.mill geneiatlous oi the same family.
Ho had a hundred claims staked out,
and tie was the acknowledged leader of
tuem ill, The price lie put uu the entire group was tea hundred Bullion
dollars, and uot a cent less. So he
nuug back and waned for a buyer.
In mc muautime be buili a mansion
ou me prospects, woicu cost lboue«
anus oi dutiiirs. Everybody trusted
uiui ; the railways, tue hotels, the
staves, tne storekeepers, etc, etc, Ht»
purchased a carriage aud a pair of
dapple grey hoi ees and put ou enough
dog iu a week to last a mau a Ule-
ume. He iurmsi>eu his house with
organs, pianos, Bide ooards and electria
liguis, aud bad everything up-to-date
and luxuriantly comfortable. But it
ail went down ou the books; his prospects were good. The whole world
Buddenly realized that it loved him immensely. Moreover he married a lady
who had been waiting lor such a catch
and she boasted thnt cite would be the
richest lady iu the land before many
weeks. Tuey made weealy trips to
the capital and put up at the best hotel
in town aud enjoyed life thoroughly;
but it all went down on the books. A-
nou he was induced to bond hit claims
for a trifle oi cash down an.l tbe balance in time payments if l..e property
proved good. The syndicate went to
work aud found nothing but a faint
prospect on the surface which would
not justify the expense necessary for
the construction of mills. So the con-
fident prospector was in the mud in a
lew weeks with a mountain of debt
upon his shoulders instead of a r.ioun.
'ain oi rich quartz st his back. And
his young wife had fled.

To the Editor ol the Prospector.
Sir—I bave beard many reasond slated why ibe Mines Exploration Co. intend throwing up their bond on the
Lorne group. One was financial; another was that the rock did not come
up to their explications; anothor wa»
that by making u bluff of this ki.n',
they could induce tbe Lorne Company
to take a lesser sum for llieir properties.
None of these reasons aro   correct.
The real reason, as given ia the News
Advertiser, and reproducd by you last
week, is that a liquor license has heen
granted 10 a stopping house some half
mile from their workings.
Did any one ever hear of Buch ridiculous nonsense.
li this reason   emnnatcd   from   the
Mines Exploration Company they will
certainly make themselves tbe laughing stock of the province.
Who ever heard oi a prohibition

Washington, Aug. 18.—In this discourse Ur. Tulmage extols home as
_ Held of usefulness, and especially
encourages wives uud mothers; text.
Genesis i, 27, ".Mule und female created he them."
In other words, Clod, who can
make no mistake, made man and
woman for u specific work and to
move in particular spheres—man to
regnant in his realm, woman to lie
dominant in hers. The boundary
line between Italy and Switzerland,
between England and Scotland, is
not more thoroughly marked than
this distinction between the empire
masculine and the empire feminine.
So entirely dissimilar are the fields
to which Clod called them that, you
can no more compare tl. m than you
can oxygen and hydrogen, water and
grass, trees and stars. All this talk
about the superiority of one sex to
the other is an everlasting waste of
ink and speech. A jeweler may have
a scale so delicate that he can weigh
the dust of diamonds, but where are
the scales so delicate that you can
weigh in them affection, sentiment
against sentiment, thought against
thought, soul against soul, a man's
word against a woman's word?
You come out with your stereotyped remark that man is superior to
woman in intellect, and then 1 open
on my desk the swarthy, iron typed,
thunclcrboltcd writings of Harriet
Martineau antl Elizabeth Browning
and George Eliot. You come on
with your stereotyped remark about
woman's superiority to man in tho
item of affection, but I ask you
where was there more capacity to
love than in .John the disciple, and
Robert McCheyne, the Scotchman,
and John Summcrfield, the Methodist, and Henry Martyn, the missionary? The heart of those mon was so
large that after you had rolled into
it the hemispheres there was room
still left to marshal the hosts of heaven and set up the throne of the
eternal Jehovah. I deny to man the
throne Intellectual. I deny to woman thc throne alToctional. No human phraseology will ever define the
spheres while there is an intuition
by which we know when a man is in
his realm and when a woman is rn
her realm and when either of them
is out of it. No bungling legislature ought to attempt to make a
definition or to say, "This is the
line, nnd that is the line."
My theory is that if woman wants
to vote she ought to vote and that
ii a in.in wants to embroider and
keep house he ought to be allowed
to embroider and keep house. There
are masculine women, and there are
effeminate men. My theory is that
you have no right to Interfore with
any one's doing anything lhat is
righteous. Albany and Washington
might as well decree by legislation
how high a brown thrasher should
fly or how deep a trout should
plunge as to try to seek out thc
height or the depth of woman's
duty. The question of capacity will
settle finally the whole question, the
whole subject. When a woman is
prepared to preach, she will preach,
and neither conference nor presbytery can hinder her. When a woman
is prepared to move in highest commercial spheres, she will have great
influence on the exchange, and no
boards of trade can hinder her. I
want woman to understand that
heart and brain can overflow any
barrier that politicians may set up
and that nothing can keep her back
or keep her down but the question
of capacity.
1 know there are women of most
undesirable nature who wander up
and down the country, having no
homes of their own or forsaking
their own homes, talking about their
rights, and we know very well that
they themselves are lit neither to
vote nor fit to keep house. Their
mission seems to be io humiliate Ihe
two sexes at the thought of what
any one of us might become. No
one would want lo live under the
laws that such women would enact,
or to have cast upon society the
children thai s.uch women would
raise. Hut I will show vou lhat the
best rights ihat woman cnn own she
already has in her possession; that
her position in Ihis country at this
time is not. one of commiseration,
but one of eoru-tn.t.tiln: inn; that the
grandeur mi I power of her realm
have      never     yel   be. n   .ipprociated;
thai     She    SltS    In'l.il     oil    ;,     I 1, r ■ , J,. ■    SO
high thai ;;ll tie- thrones of earth
piled on top of each other would not
make for her p footstool. Here is
the platform on which she stands.
Away down below il are Ihe ballot
box and ibe congressional assemblage and the  legislative hall.
Woman always has voted and always will Miie. Our great-grandfathers thought, they were by their
votes putting Washington into the
presidential chnir. No. Ilis mother, by the principles she taught him
and by the habits she inculcated,
made him president . It was a Chris
tian mother's hand dropping the bal
lot when Lord Union wrote, and
Newton philosophized, and Alfred
the Great governed, and Jonathan
Edwards thundered of      judg
ment to come. How many
men        there have        been
high political station who would
havo been lnsuiffh lent to stand the
test to which their moral principle
was put had it not been for a wife's
voice that encouraged them to do
right and a wife's prayer that sounded louder than the clamor of partisanship! Why, my friends, tho right
of suffrage, as wc men exorcise it,
Rooms to be a feeble thing. You.
Christian man. coaie up to the ballot
box, and you drop your vote. Itight
after you rones a libe, ine or a sot,
ile- offseouring oi the street, nnd ho
drops his vole, and his vole counteracts yours. Hut if in the quiet
of home life a daughter b.v her Christian demeanor, a wife by lur industry, a moi her by her faithfulness,
casts a vote in the right direction,
then nothing tun resist it, nnd the
influence of thai vote will throb
through  the eternities.
My chief anxiety, then, is nut that
woman have other rights accorded
her, but that she, by lhe grace of
God, rise up to the appreciation of
the glorious rights she already
possesses. 1 shall only have
lime to speuik oi* one grand and
all absorbing right that every woman has, ami that is lo make home
happy. Thai realm no one has ever
disputed with her. Men may come
home at noon or al night, und they
tarry a. comparatively little while,
but she all day long governs it,
beautifies it, sanctifies if. It is
wil bin     her  power  to   mnke  it      tbe
most attractive pine i earth, it is
i! ily calm  harbor  in this world.
Noil know as well ns I do Hint this
outside world null tbe business world
is a long scene ol" jostle nnd Contention. The man who bus a dollar
struggles to keep it; the man who
has it not si niggles to get it- Prices
up. Trices down. Losses. Gains. Misrepresentations. GouglngS. Underselling. Buyers depreciating; snles-
nieii exaggerating. Tenants seeking
less rent; landlords demanding more.
Gold fidgety. Struggles about oliice.
Men who nre in trying to keep in;
men  out  trying  to  get in. Slips.
Tumbles. Defalcations. Panics. Catastrophes, t) woman, thank God you
havo a home, nnd that you may bo
queen in if. Better be there than
wear a queen's coronet. Better be
there thnn carry the purse of a princess. Your abode may be humble,
dnt yon can b.v your faith in God
and your cheerfulness of demeanor
gild it with splendors such as an upholsterer's hand  never yet kindled.
There are abodes in the city —
humble, two stories, four plain, ini-
pnpercd rooms*, undesirable neighborhood, and yet there is a man here
to-day who would die on tlie threshold rather than surrender it. Why?
It is home. Whenever he thinks of it
be sees angels of God hovering
around it. The ladders of heaven are
let down to this house. Over tbe
child's rough crib there are the
chantings of angels, as those that
sounded over Bethlehem. It is
home. These children may come up
after awhile, and they may win high
position, and they may have an affluent residence, fait they will not until their dying day forget that humble roof under which their father
rested und their mother sang and
their sisters played, Oh, if you
would gather up all tender memories,
nil the lights and shades of the bean.
all banquetings and reunions, all filial, fraternal, paternal and conjugal
affections, and you had only just
four letters to spell out that height
and depth and length and breadth
and magnitude und eternity of meaning, you would,  with streaming eyes
and     trembling voici d      agitated
hand, write it out in these four living capitals, I-I-O-M-E.
What right does woman want tbat
is grander thnn   to   be queen  in such
a   realm?   Why,   tl agios  of  heaven
cannot, lly across tlmt dominion.
i loi "... punt in;- and with luthered
t, are not swift enough to run
, i ho outposl of that realm. Thoy
sny that the sun never sets upon
tho English Empire, but I have to
i ell } on i hat on this realm of woman's influence eternity never marks
,.n\ bound. Isabella lied 'rom the
Spanish throne pursued by the nation's anathema, but she who is a
queen iu a home will never lose her
i hrone. and death itself will only be
ile- annexation of heavenly principalities.
When you want to get your grandest idea of a queen, you do not think
of Catherine of Russia, or of Anne
of England, or Maria Theresa of
Austria, but when you want to get
your grandest idea of a queen you
think of lhe plain woman who sat
o] poslte your father at the table, or
walked with him arm in arm down
bfe's pathway, sometimes to the
thanksgiving banquet, sometimes to
the grave, but always together —
soothing your petty griefs, correcting your childish waywardness, joining in your infantile sports, listening to your evening prayers, toiling
for you with needle, or at the spinning wheel, and on cold nights wrapping you up snug and warm. Aud
then at last, on that day when she
lay in the back room dying, und you
saw her take those thin bunds with
wnieb she toiled for you so long and
put tbem together in a dying prayer that commended you to God,
whom she had taught you to trust--
oh, she was the queen! Thc chariots
of God enme down to fetch her, and
as she went in all heaven rose up.
you cannot think of her now without a rush of tenderness that Btlrs
lhe deep foundations of your soul
,, d you feel as much a child ; gain
us wdien you cried on hor lap,      and
if y -ould  bring  her  back      again

,is tenderly ns she used to I peak it
you would be willing to throw yourself on the ground and kiss the sod
•.bat covers her. crying, "Mother,
mother!" Ah, she was the queen -—
sho was the queen.
Now, can you tell me how ly.nny
thousand miles a woman like that
would havo to travel down before
she got to the ballot box? Compared
with this work of training kings
and queens for God and eternity,
how insignificant seems all this work
of voting for aldermen and common
councllmen and sheriffs and constables and mayors and presidents.
To make one such good woman as I
have described how muny thousand
would you want of these good people who go in the round of godless-
ness and fashion nnd dissipation, distorting their body and going- ns far
toward disgraceful apparel ns 'lev
dare go so as not to be arrested of
tho police, their behavior a sorrow
to the good and a caricature o! tie
vicious and an insult to tlmt God
who made them women and not eor-
gous, and tramping on. down
through  a frivolous and     dissipated
life, to temporal and eternal destruction. Oh, woman, with the 'lghtnlng
of your soul strike dead at your feet
all these allurements to dissipation
and to fashion. Your immortal soul
cannot be fed upon such garbage.
God calls you up to empire and dominion. Will you have it? Oh, give
to God your henrt, give to God
your best energies, give to God all
your culture, give to God ull your
refinement, give yourself to Him for
this world nnd the next. Soon all
these bright eyes will be quenched
and these voices will be hushed. For
the last time you will look upon this
fair earth; father's hand, mother's
hand, sister's hand, child's hand,
will be no more in yours. It will be
night, and there will come up a cold
wind from the Jordan, and you must
start. Will it be a lone woman on a
trackless moor? Ah, no, Jesus will
come up in that hour and offer ilis
hand, and he will suy, "You stood
by mo when you were well; now 1
will not desert you when you are
sick." One wave- of His bund and
the storm will drop, antl another
wave of His band and midnight shall
break into niidnoon, and another
wave of His hand und the chamberlains of God will come down from
the treasure houses of heaven with
robes lustrous, blood washed and
heaven glinted, in which you will
array yourself for the marriage supper of the Lamb, And fchen with Miriam, who struck the timbrel by the
led Sea, and witli Deborah, who
led the Lord's host into the light,
and wilh Hannah, who gave her
Samuel to the Lord, and with Mary,
wbo rocked Jesus to sleep while
there were angels singing in the air,
and with Florence Nightingale, who
bound up tie- battle wounds of the
Crimea, you will, from ihe r:.ulice
of God, drink to the soul's eternal
pence.
On- twilight, after I had been
playing wilh the children for some
lime. I lay down on the lounge to
rest, and. half asleep and half awake,
1 seemed io dream this dream: It
seemed to ine ihnt I was in a far
distant land)—not Persia, although
more than oriental luxuriance crowned Ihe cities: nor the tropics, although more than tropical fruitful-
ness filled the gardens; nor Italy,
although more Hum Italian softness
tilled the air. And I wandered
around looking for thorns nnd nettles, but I found none of them grew
there. And I walked forth, and I
saw the sun rise, and I said. "When
will it sit again?" and lhc sun sank
not. And I saw all the people in
holiday apparel, and I said, "When
will tbey put on workingman's garb
again and delve in the mine and
swelter nt the forge?" Hut neither
the garments nor lhe robes did they
put off, And I wandered in thc suburbs, and I said. "Where do they
bury the dead of this great city?"
And 1 looked along by the hills
where it would be most beautiful for
the dead to sleep, and I saw castles
and towers and battlements, but not
a mausoleum, nor monument. nor
white slab could T see. And T went
into Ihe great chapel of the lown.
and I snid: Where do tbe poor wor-
,hi|'' Where are the benches en
which they sir.'" And a voice answer.-d, "We have no poor in this
great, city." And f wandered out
seeking to find lhe place where were
lhe hovels of the destitute. and I
found mansions of amber and ivory
and gold, but no tear did 1 see or
sieh hear. f was bewildered, and I
snt under the shadow of a great
tree, and I said, ''What am T and
whence conies nil this?" And at
that moment there came from among
the leaves, skipping up the flowery
paths nnd across the sparkling waters, a very bright nnd spur'!.line-
group, and when I saw their step l
knew il. and when T beard their
voices I thought 1 knew them, but
their apparel was so different from
anything 1 had ever seen I bowed, a
stranger io strangers. But after
awhile, when Ihey clapped their
hands and shouted, "Welcome! Welcome!" ibe mystery was solved, and
I snw thai time had passed and thai
eternity bad come, and that God had
gathered as up into a higher home,
nnd I said. "Are all here?" nnd the
voices of Innumerable generations answered. "All here." And while tears
of gladness were ruining tlown nnr
cheeks and lhe branches of Hie Lebanon cedars were clapping their
hnnds nnd the towers of the great
city were chiming their welcome, we
begnn tn laugh nnd sing and leap
nnd       shout: "Home! Home!

STAGE  BANQUETS.
yoal Dow nnd   Mis Son.
Col. Fred N. How tells the following story to illustrate how thc son
of a father devoted to a great principle is likely to follow in his father's footsteps.
t'ol. How once visited friends nt
Quebec, and, while seeing lhe sighl i
of the city and its surroundings, ho
took   u   public   carriage   to   visit   th.:
Falls of Montmorency. At a halfway house on the road the driver
pulled up his horse and remarked
"The carriage always slop., hero."
"for what purpose?" asked lie-
colonel.
"for the passongers to treat,"
was the reply.
"Hut. nono of us drink, and Wo
don't  intend  to treat."
The driver hud dismounted, and
was waiting by the roadside. Drawing himself ui* to his full height, he
said impressively: "I havo driven
this carriage now more than thirty
yenrs, and this happened but once
before. Some time ago I had for u
fare a crank from l'ortland, Mc., by
tho name of Ncal Dow, who said ho
wouldn't drink; and what was more
to the point, he snid hi; wouldn't
pay for anybody else to think."
The son found himself occupying
the same ground ns that on which
his  father  had  stood.

France's new prison at Fresnes.
some eight miles from I'aris, is the
largest in  the world.
One  That  Canned   a  Performance  to
End In a Riot.
Stage banquets ure uot invariably merry, as witness a very old one—that iu
"Macbeth," wjiere Banquo is a guest unseen by oil but the host, whose ravings
at the sight throw everything into disorder and cause the hostess tu dismiss thc
company. There is also an outdoor dinner going on in "As You Like It" when
Orlando interrupts. In Shakespeare's
lime nt these stage feasts the performers
used as food marchpane, a sort of biscuit, to which one of the servants makes
allusion in "Borneo nnd Juliet," "Good
thou, save me a piece of marchpane."
The actors grumbled at the constant use
ef marchpane and would have preferred
something substantial.
In the eighteenth century, when the
strolling players went more or less merrily uu foot and were much of the time
half starved, real food in tlie plays was
mere than welcome. There was a British manager who, whenever salaries were
considerably in arrears and dissatisfae-
tion prevalent, soothed everybody into
good humor again b.v putting up the nuti-
tieul drama, "The Cramond Brig." which
calls for a dinner of boiled mutton nnd
turnips. In "The Gentle Shepherd,"
which usui! to he given iii Scotland, real
haggis was Introduced. There was also
a very elaborate meal in tho old farce
"Nn Seng, Xo Supper."
Persons iu thel'audlcnce nre not aware,
perhaps, thut it is dillicult to eat on the
-lane and carry on the dialogue nt tlie
same lime. Nut a little practice is required. The experienced players, however, do it gracefully and well. Before
an audience one must eat very daintily,
ile well bred people in front will criticise. An actress must also know some-
thing about conking, or at least about
lhe preparation of food. Making bread
on tlie stage is common, ami iu Robert-
son's "Ours" there is a charming scene
where Mary Netley runs about in the hut
in lhe Crimea with sleeves rolled up and
in her bond the well dusted rolling pin.
She also works out the dough.
Occasionally there is too much drinking. In a play entitled "The Wary Widow," which was acted in 1603, it is said
that there was so much whisky punch
consumed that all the performers became
Intoxicated,
Mr. Clement Scott, in his memoirs, relates the disastrous experience some years
ago in London of Miss Nita Nicotine, a
young woman who made her debut in a
play called "Ecarte." The Australian
tragedian, Boothroyd Fairclough. was in
the cast. The picnic scene was of highly
realistic character—genuine hampers from
Fortnum & Mason's, 1'erigord pies, chicken, truffles and champagne., Tho repast
was of sumptuous character, and the actors and actresses ate and drank heart-
ilv. Tlie gallery, after awhile, becoming
weary of bo much feasting without being
able to join in it. began to jeer. The
champagne continued to flow, and Miss
Medina displayed the effects of overindulgence. The jeers turned into yells,
and presently, when she entered witli a
green hoot ou one foot and a yellow hoot
on the other, the yells became howls, and
the lady unwisely attempted n speech.
The piece ended in n riot, and tho lights
were put out.
Mont Tattooed Mrtn In Frnnce.
Languishing in a prison cell iu Paris, to
which lie was relegated the other day for
assault and battery, is oue Auguste For-
min, an ex-soldler, who claims to bo the
most tattooed man iu France, liis body
presents an illustrated version of the
Dreyfus ease, in which the most dramatic episodes in that world famous drama
are reproduced with great skill.
His right arm hears the portraits of the
officers who testified at the Kola trial, together with a picture of the novelist, fin
Ids left arm is the poll rait of the late
president of the republic, Felix Faure,
ami oilier celebrities who figured iu connection wiih the easo of lhe prisoner of
Devil's island. Then, beginning with the
tragical incident of Dreyfus' degradation
in the presence of the troops, scene after
seene is unrolled. The spaces between
are filled in wilh Hags and allegorical devices, such us a bleeding heart pierced by
n dagger aud a boa constrictor crushing a
num. In all there are 1110 scenes, portraits and devices.
This remarkable example of tattooing
was performed while Foriniu was serving in a disciplinary battalion at Birihi,
in Tunis. He claims that the surgeon of
his regiment offered him 400 francs for
tlie Illustrations on his hack, promising to
remove the skin without pain and guaranteeing that he would speedily recover
and suffer no ill effects from the operation. Foruiiu, however, preferred to keep
his pictures.
AUSTRALIA'S GROWTH-
Likely to He Sapid  Now the Commonwealth Is It  f-'iict.
Now that Confederation is accomplished, Australia will go ahead like
a bonfire, is lhe enthusiastic view of
Mr. (!. I. Doyle, a young Australian
from Sydney, New South Wales. Mr.
Doyle states that previous to Confederation the colonies wero kept
bade by constant differences and
comparatively petty jealousies. Now
Australia is all one country, and enterprises will be planned and carried
out on a national and continental
scale, and in consequence development
will be unprecedented. The Boer
war, unfortunate as it was in itself,
was the great force which welded the
Australian colonies together. The
Boer war found Australasia a disconnected series of colonies; it left
them a compact, enthusiastic commonwealth.
The new capital city, Mr. Doyle
thinks, will likely be in tho Young
district, about 400 miles from Sydney, 250 miles from Iho scaconst, a
site very central to the three groat
colonies. He has been away from
Australia now about five months.
In Japan Mr. Doyle spent a couple
of mont hs, and was struck most of
all by the fact that the English
language hud distanced all other foreign tongues, so tbat it was impossible, for a German or a Frenchman
to get along with the natives without learning some English, whereas
an Englishman could make himself
understood,    practically, everywhere.
In Australia Mr. Doyle is connected
with tbe sheep-raising industry, or,
as Canadians would say, ranching.
He stopped off and visited tho
ranches about Calgary, and found a
considerable difference between Canadian and Australian methods. In
Canada, apparently, the rancher buys
a homestead of 320 or 64.0 acres,
and rents 10,000 or 120,000 ifrom the
Government to range his herds upon.
He seems to go into it with tho iden
that ho will make money as rapidly
as he can. and then retire; and in
consequence there is a temporary air
about ull his buildings and surroundings, nnd he submits to mnny
personal discomforts while he is
building up his fortune. In Australia the rancher buys outright a homestead of ten, twenty, or thirty thousand acres antl proceeds to improve
it, so that he and hi»s children after
him will live there in comfort and
amid pleasant surroundings, and
look upon it as their permanent
home. The result is that he [nits up
a fine house, surrounds it wilh trees
nnd vines, and proceeds to mnke himself ns comfortable ns if he lived in
a city. In Manitoba Mr. Doyle noticed that Ihe houses had a more
homelike character, as if the people
intended to live there Iheir natural
lives, and he had no doubt as timo
went on the homes in the Far West
would take on that more permanent
and pleasant character which tney
now  lack.
Ilnnnnne the Breadfruit ot (Io- World.
Bananas, probably the first fruit ever
cultivated, possess nil the essentials to
the sustenance of life. More people live
on bananas than live on wheat. When
taken as a sieady diet, they ure cooked,
either linked, boiled or fried. The fruit
is very nourishing, as it contains so much
starch ami sugar.
Banana flour is highly nutritious and
very valuable. The farinaceous fond is
so prone to undergo mulfei'ineutntion in
the stomach when the normal digestion
is disordered that it becomes very Important to seek some variety of starchy
food which can lie easily assiinilalcd
without the production of acid eructations of flatulence or heartburn. Therefore the flour has n decided advantage as
a food for invalids. Thompson slates
that he has found that the finest banana
flour, called "hananose," al lhe end of
lbj hours of pancreatic digestion was
capable of developing twice us much
sugar as the same quantity of oatmeal
or farina and nearly i'j linns as much
sugar as cornstarch.

Plonipoteutiary is an experience different in kind but fully as interesting. Unroll Hayiishi has had both

the government that once had him

old prison of feudal limes in Hakodate. The Infer experience is more
Conducive to pence of mind than the

send an embassy round the world

English were rare in Jnpan in those

came a ring at the door bell.
She hastened to tho front door

"Yes."

Not long ago I visited the town ot
Novum, in northern Italy. There In a
wheatfield the farmers have plowed
up skulls of men until thoy have piled
up a pyramid 10 or 12 feet high. Over
this pyramid some one has built n canopy to keep off the rain. These were
the skulls of young men of Savoy, Sardinia und Austria—men of 18 to 35
years of ngo, peasants from tho farms
und workmen from the shops—who
met ut Novum to kill each other over
n matter In which they had very little
concern.
Further on Frenchmen, Austrlons
and Italians fell together nt Magenta,

under the olive trees. Go over Italy

crimsoned by the blood of France,
scarcely a railway station without Its

them across to Egypt, to the foot of

will find them In Russia nt Moscow,
In Belgium at Waterloo. "A boy can

Anosmia, or thin, watery blood, is increasing to an alarm-
ing extent among the school girls ane yuung women of our
land. Pale gums, tongue and eyelids, muscular weakness, inability for exertion, deficient appetite, impaired digestion, short
breath, palpitation of tlie heart, attacks of vomiting, swooninur,
hysteria and irregularities oi the feminine organs are among the
unmistakable symptoms of anaemia or poor qualify of blood.
Anaemic persons are frequently sail to be going int. a decline, and as a fact do usually contract consumption or some
fatal constitutional disease if they negl-ct to restore normal
vigor. Fresh air, sunlight, mode.-.ne exercise and the regular
use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food after each meal will restore new

and watched and prayed for the result. At noon I gave him more and
also at supper, lie never suspected
a thing, and I then boldly kept right
On giving it regularly, os I had discovered something that set overy

and happiness, and I could sec a
bright future spread out before me—
a peaceful, happy home, a share in
the good things of lifo, an attentive,
loving husband, comforts, and everything else dear to a woman's heart;
for my husband had told mc that
whisky was vile stuff and he was
taking a dislike to it. It was only
too true, for before I had given him
the full course he had stopped drinking altogether, but I kept giving
him the medicine till it was oil gone,
and then sent for another lot to
have on hand if ho should relapse, as
he had done from promises before,
lie never has, and I am writing you

I am. I honestly believe it will cure

"If yon dou't mind my mentioning it,"
mildly suggested the tall passenger sitting opposite, "it is a rather dangerous
practice to spit out through tho window
of a train on an elevated railway."
"I don't see any danger," said the other
passenger, a light coinpk-xioncd man with
a dyed chin beard and n short black pipe.
"No danger to you, perhaps," rejoined
the first speaker, "but decidedly dangerous and unpleasant to anybody who
might happen to he walking on the sidewalk below."
"That's his lookout and not mine."
"Just so. But if you had looked out
perhaps you wouldn't havo done it."
"Maybe I wouldn't aud maybe I
would."
"It's more comforting to believe you
wouldn't. I hate to think a man will
knowingly and intentionally make a hog
or worse thnn n hog of himself, even if
ho does ride in a smoking car."
"What difference does it make to you?
If you dou't like it, you know, you don't
have to stay here."
"I have to stay here or stand up. The
other cars ure all full. I don't consider
ynu entitled to any explanation of my
being here, hut in the interests of historical accuracy I thought I'd tell you."
"That's all right, but you'd better be a
bit careful how you call people hogs, just
the same."
"It was a thoughtless comparison, I
confess. A hog wouldn't do such a
thing."
"You blank old rubberneck, I've the
greatest notion in the world to"—
"Bat wait a minute, my good sir.
There's plenty of time yet. I was going
to say that a man never ought to allow
himself to become angry and excited over
trifles. Bless your soul, I don't. If I see
n fellow making a disgusting spectacle of
himself, I may take the liberty sometimes of telling him so, but I do it calmly
nnd without any excitement, while at the
same time—what! Are you doing it
again, you infernal beast? Haven't you
the first instincts of a gentleman?"
"I'm doing it again, and I'll do it all I
please, you blnnk old idiot. We'll see
if"-
The other passenger swiftly unlimbercd
himself. Ile pulled the window down
With a jerk. Then he stood over the
man with the dyed chin beard and short
black pipe,
"As 1 took occasion to observe a moment ago," he said, "a mnn should never
allow himself to become angry or excited
when he is discussing things with a fellow man, but if you raise that window
again while 1 am in this car I'll take the
greatest pleasure In throwing you through
it, you hideous reptile! You haven't the
decency of n hyena! You are a loathsome, repulsive thing in human shape!
Now, don't you open your mouth at me
or I'll smash it! Don't you look at me or
I shall forget myself and put a different
aspect un your face, you nasty, abominable beast!"
Then the other passengers, seeing that
tho man with the pipe was thoroughly
subdued, hastened to crowd around his
subduer and pat him on the back ami tell
him be had dune just right and that it

One of the Tricks Performed l>y tha
Fakirs of India.
The fakirs of India perform some remarkable tricks. Tlie following one
was witnessed by an Englishman who
was himself an excellent prestidlgi-
tateur:
The apartment being Oiled, the magicians began their performance. The
audience sat on the floor about the
fakirs, so flint tbey had no way of concealing themselves or of hiding anything. At their request I examined
them and satisfied myself tbat thof
had nothing about them. Then one of
the women stepped Into the inclosure,
the rest remaining behind the spectators, who formed a close ring about
(bein. The light was now turned down
a. little, and In a moment the woman's
face began to be Illuminated by a
ghostly light that extended quickly
over ber entire body.
She then began to move around and
around, tittering a low, murmuring
sound the while, gradually quickening
tlie pace until she was whirling about
like a loii. A moment of this, and the
light that bad clung aoout ber seemed
to he whirled off b.v centrifugal force
and assumed a pillarlike form beside
her. As soon as tills was accomplished she stopped, I iirned and began to
mold the light with her hand, and,
though I eoul.1 distinctly see her hands
move through iho light us If it were a
cloud, it began tn assume human form.
We k.iv.- iho arms, hands nntl legs all
molded ami dually tin- face and headgear. She next willed for a light, and.
the candles being relighted, there stood
;:n utter stranger, a native seemingly,
evolved nut of elotidlnnd. lie stepped
forward and grasped ine by the hand,
liis hinds were moist, as if with perspiration, and he was a very liealthy
spirit.
After he had talked and drunk a
glass of arrack be took his place beside
I lu- woman again ami began lo whirl
alioiit. Tlie lights were dimmed, but
not so that we could not see. and in a
few minutes the figure began to fade,
soon assuming the appearance of a
pillar or form of light and then attaching itself to the woman and seemingly
being absorbed by her. All tbis was
done in a very short space of time lie-
lore the eyes of at least 00 people and
not ten feet from myself. The girl ap-
ueared greatly exhausted afterward.

The advance agent met tlie leading
man of another show the other night.
and, as they had not seen each other in
seven years, there was a warmness
nlioiit their greeting that was refreshing.
"Dear old Tom!" said the leading
man. "I was thinking of you not live
minutes ago. Sit down, you dear old
fellow! I passed a bakery not live minutes ago, and 1 thought of you. Why.
here's Willis! I was Just saying to
Tom that I never see a baker's that 1
don't think of him, Tom md I were
poor once! Mighty poor too. 1 remember that we had heen turned oul
of different homes on the same cold
night and met each other for tbe first
time by chance. We shared the comforts of a butcher's wagon that night
and went upon a rummaging expedition the next day. We halted in front
of a German bakery, half starved and
disgusted with life generally. There
was n'liuge sign in the window which
said. There Is Xo Cake Like Ours.' We
hadn't a penny between us, but Tom
stepped in and asked for a sample of
the rake. The Dutchman didn't appreciate the humor of the request, so
Tom said. 'You may keep your cake,
boss; but. say, give me a chunk of
bread, quick, or I'll cut out your gizzard.' I'll never forget that cake sign
because It took us hours to get away
from the police who were attracted to
tbe scene by the baker's cries for help."
"But that was not my only experience with a peculiar sign." remarked
the advance agent after a hearty laugh.
"The year before I went ou the road
for tbe first time I was In as bard luck
as ever man was. I had pawned everything iu sight and was almost starved. I found an umbrella In the ball-
way of a down town building, aud the
janitor told me to keep it. It was a
fairly good rain shield, and I Immediately carried It to mine uncle. I didn't
know this particular relative, although
I had formed the acquaintance of hundreds of his people. His place was on
Sixth avenue, and lie gave me 75 cents
on it, which I gladly accepted. As he
was making out the ticket lie said:
" 'Do you want to save it from the
moths?'
" 'Yes,' I answered.
"'That will cost you 12 cents. Perhaps you would like to have it insured?
It is always advisable, but it will cost
you 12 cents more,' replied my friend.
"'All right.' I said. 'Take good care
of it.' He could have eaten it for all I
eared, for I never Intended to redeem
It.   I was about to leave the place when

" 'Xo extra charge for putting watches and jewelry in the safe In the oliice'
"Watches and jewelry! It brought
the tears to my eyes, and as 1 crawled
into my 10 cent bed that night I
thought of diamond necklaces, pearls
and rubies of priceless value and—cake.
Ob, the curse of some signs! How they
mock tbe poor!"
They were all silent a moment, but
lhe one addressed as Willis was the
first to resume conversation, and he
said:
"There's my friend, Rig John Smith.
Let me Introduce him. Since you chaps
are talking of signs and hard luck, let
me tell you of the time that I had to
leave my trunk at the old Stevens
House, ou lower Broadway, and light
out by the shades of midnight to get
away from a hotel bill that 1 couldn't
pay. Everything I had in the world
was locked up In that trunk, nnd as 1
could not remove anything without exciting suspicion I thought It best to
keep out of jail by leaving everything
behind me. I must have walked the
streets at least a week famished and
penniless. One afternoon 1 was passing along an up town street, hoping to
die, when I happened to look up nnd
saw a sign as big as my hopes were
small.   This sign read:
" 'We Are Not Daylight Robbers.
Trunks! Trunks! From the Battery
to the Harlem Bridge to Your Room
Kor 25 ('cuts.'
"If (hat sign was not tbe Irony of
fate In my case, I do not know what
to call It."
"Ob. that's a small affair alongside
of my experience," said Smith. "It Is
only a few years ngo too. 1 had been
unemployed for several months, and as
1 had six little shavers to take care of 1
did uot bave much trouble spending the
little money I bad saved. I didn't seem
to have a friend in the wide world to
turn to, and 1 spent my last copper for
a paper to examine tbe employment column. It was nbout Christmas time,
nnd I dreaded going back home to face
the scolding landlord. 1 recall that I
stopped lu front of the Harlem oliice
of a newspaper to see the holiday
crowd go by. and ns 1 did so 1 saw a
sign tbat made my blood run cold. It
said:
" 'There Is No Reason Why You
Should Be Idle. Insert a Want Ad.
Four Cents a Line.'
"The pronoun was printed In Immense letters, and I bad the greatest
trouble dissuading myself that It was
not Intended for me, nnd me alone.
(If course It wasn't, but that sign burn
ed Into my memory, and 1 hnve
thought of it Innumerable times since."
"Oh, pshaw!" rejoined the leading
man after a pause. "I suppose It Is Impossible to please everybody with pub
lie signs. 1 saw one In Buffalo once
which said: 'Attention, blind mon.
Kind this and be cured,' which referred
lo a new treatment for the blind. All
signs cannot be expected to satisfy thc
Ideas of everybody."—New York Mail

After the Sunday sehool teacher had
finished reading the lesson which told of
Pharaoh making Joseph's brothers rulers

can you tell mc what Pharaoh did for
Joseph's brothers?"
"Y'es'm," answered Johnny; "he made
cowboys of 'em."
A 0-year-old schoolgirl submitted the
following composition on "People:"
"People are composed of girla and
boys; also men and women. Buys are no
good till they grow up nud get married.
Men who don't get married nre no good
either. Girls are young women who will
be ladies when they graduate. Woman
was made nfler man, and my Uncle Bob
says 'she has been after him ever since.'
"The Lord looked disappointed after he
had made Adam, aud he suid to himself,
Tf at first you don't succeed, try, try

Then he wns satisfied. Boys nre an awful bother. They want everything they
see, except sonp. If I had my way, half
the boys in the world would be gills and
the other half dolls.
"My mn is a woman, and my pa is a

A NEAT SCHEME.
IIow It 'Worked to the Ilii.ii J van tr.nts.
of Jones' Wife.
"If you want to see the maddest woman that ever drew breath, go up and soft
my wife," said Jones, "What i.s (he matter? Well, it is the hired girl question
ngnin. We have hnd an excellent girl,
although she was Inclined to be 'sassy' at
times and tnke advantage "f the fact that
we did not dure discharge her for fear
thnt we could not get nnother. The o(h-
er day, while Mrs. Brown, wdio is one of
our neighbors, was culling, tbe bind girl
question came up. and she suid that bei
girl, while a good one, often imp
upon her, knowing full well that she
would stnnd u good deal rather than part
with her.
" 'One   reason   f .r  my   calling   triilny,'
snid Mrs. Brown, 'was to unfold an iden
that occurred to me.    One great trouble
wilh  all   good   girls   is   that   tliey   know
' that they can he 'sassy' and  slill hold
[ their   situations.     New,   we   both   hnvo
good girls,  and  what I  propose is this:
That we both read the riot net tomorrow
J nnd dischnrge them ou the spot.    Then
i you cnn step in nnd secure my girl and
I will hire yours.   Discharging them will
[ do them both n world of good nud tench
. them n lesson,  aud  we will  secure  tbo
moral effect by merely exchanging girls.'
It struck  my  wife as  being a  good
idea, aud she agreed to the plnn.    She
carried out ber end of the bargain, nnd
she snid she never had so much satisfaction In her life ns when she gnve the girl
a chance to 'suss' her nnd then discharged
her  on   the   spot.     She   wns   promptly
snapped up by Mrs. Brown.    But when
my wife tried tn secure tbe girl thnt her
neighbor  had  discharged  ftie  said  that
she  wns to  be married  in a  week and
didn't care to go out to service fur thnt
length of tfme.
"My wife snys that Mrs. Brown knew
it nt the time nnd tbat it was a contemptible scheme to get her girl awny from
her, nnd I must nilmit that it does look
thnt way. Meanwhile she is doing her
own cooking, and tbe pepper that sho
served out is not confined solely to tho,

Nowadays the captain is the host of

gone by. He must observe sonic of thc
social amenities; be must talk to the

must see that no jealousies develop
among the passengers. I have been
told of tbe very obliging captain who,
to please the lady who nsked to be
shown the equator while the ship was
In southern seas, pasted a hair across
the large end of a spyglass and told tbe
lady to look. And the lady through the
glass declared she could see tbe equator "as plainly as A B C." One other

directed an officer ou the bridge to "do

Then she kissed mc.
Oh, you little godletsl
Her lips weic lipe
As cherries
And warm
