One gets the impression from rcad-
fig of Kuskin's early years that he
KlSsed many of tlie privileges of
f.althy boyhood. When he was a
*»\an, he and a companion were out
**ie day upon the mountainside.
*|hey passed a groui> of men, says a
/Viler in thu Strand Magaeine, who
yore engaged iu rough woi'k with
Jickaxes.
j "How I wish," said Kuskin, "1
pi lid do what thosfe men aie do!n>'!
. was never allowed to do any work
i'hich would have strength, ned my
jack. I wasn't allowed to ride, for
^ar of being thrown off; nor to row,
Ior fear of being drowned; nor to
jiox, because it was vulgar. I was
jllowed to fence, because that was
genteel."
I Sometimes, when he was living
jvith his parents at Denmark Hill,
ie would enjoy a surreptitious row
>n the river. "I used to be told,"
■lays the same companion, "not to
et his father and mother know where
fr- had gone." Kuskin was then in
«j.he forties.
|  It is easy to read here a woman's
'•"ears and  prejudice  and  domination.
|Kuskin   was  always,   quite  properly,
I under his mother's control; but it is
^possible that if he had had the outlet  of  reasonable    athletics    his  destructive   moods     woulti    ha\e   been
less marked.   It was during his residence at  Denmark Hill  that he  was
anathematizing    something or somebody  most unreasonably.
"John,"    said his    mother,    "you
r;tulk too    much and  you  talk   non-
| sense."
''Yes, mother," Kuskin replied, aa
humble as a little boy, and changed
the subject.
Ruskin was not afraid to admit to
others besides his mother that he
was wrong. In a lecture at Oxford
when he was Slade professor, Sir
"William Kichmond defended the
Same which the world had accorded
to Micholanfelo and Kal'ael. Formerly Kuskin had denounced Michelangelo, and was not very well pleased
with Sir William for presenting the
other side. When Kuskin recovered
from the illness which had caused
him to give up the Slade professorship, Sir William retired, that he
might lill it again. Touching by
this, Kuskin sent, asking if he might
coine down and dine with his former pupil, who was delighted to have
him. At the close of a pleasant
evening, Kuskin said:
"Willy, why did you make that
violent attack upon me about Michelangelo?"
"Air. Kuskin, because you talked
nonsense," replied Sir William.
Meanwhile Mr. Kuskin rose to go.
"You are quito right, Willy," he
said, in his candid way. "It was
r.onscnse."

Mr. Laboucherc, of Truth, is a
''taring man. He recently confessed
to having acted as match-maker between the late gifted and eccentric
artist, James McNeil Whistler, and
the lady who became his wife, but
who was at the time a charming little widow of artistic tastes, happy-
go-lucky ways and sunny disposition.
Tho two were known to be strongly
attracted toward each other, and to
have already talked in a vague, far-
off, Elysian way of possible matrimony; but it was perfectly plain that
Whistler would never do anything to
practical and common-place as deli nitely to propose and be accepted,
get a license, go to church and be
married unless some kind friend took
him in hand. besides, it was touch
and go with his temper and his tongue how ho might treat any kind
It-lend who should attempt the risk.
■vice.   Mr. Labouchcre took the risk.
lie was dining with them one evening, and decided to bring things to
the point at once.
"Jemmy," he said, "will you
marry Mrs.  Godwin?"
"Certainly,"   answered Whistler.
"Mrs. Godwin," the bold matchmaker continued, "will you marry
Jemmy?"
"Certainly," responded the lady.
"When?" persisted the practical
Labouchere.
"Oh, some day," said Whistler.
"That won't do," said Labouchere.   "We must have a date."
"So they both agreed,*' he narrates, "that 1 should choose tho
day, tell them what church to come
to for the ceremony, provide a
clergyman and give the bride away.
"1 lixed an early date, and got
them the chaplain of the House of
Commons to perform the ceremony,
it took place a lew days later. After
tho ceremony was over we adjourned
to Whistler's studio, where he had
prepared a banquet. The banquet
was on the table, but there were no
chairs, Bo we sat on packing cases.
The happy pair when 1 left had not
quite decided whether they would go
that evening to Paris or remain in
the studio.
"How unpractical they were was
shown when 1 happened to met the
bride the day beioru the marriage in
the street. 'Don't forget to-monow,'
1 said.
"' 'No,' she replied. 'I am just
going to buy my  trousseau.'
"A little late lor that, is it not?'
I asked.
" 'No,' she answered, 'for I am
only going to buy a tooth-brush and
a new sponge.'
"However, there never wus a more
s;iceess''ul marriage. They adored
each other and lived most happily
together, and when she died he was
broken-hearted indeed lie never recovered from tlie loss."

Story of I'i In. i|,nl  lluelmn.
Not n fortnight after fir. Buchan's
induction in 1881 he gave the whole
Upper Canada College, Toronto, in
prayer-hull assembled, a taste of his
quality as a disciplinarian. There
had arisen some slight friction regarding, if memory serves, Day by
Day in Toronto .News, a change in
the rule allowing members of the
Sixth Form, two, in place of three,
afternoons' leave down town each
week. Mr. Buchan made the change
afler deep consideration, and, after
receiving a. deputation from the
Sixth, promised to announce his lin-
al resolution the next afternoon at
prayers. The statement was duly
made, and it was that the change
must take place. Suddenly from
where the Sixth sat, came a sibilant,
long-drawn hiss. The boys were
amazed. Nothing of the kind had
been ever heard in that hall before.
Mr. Buchan gazed towards the Sixth,
and, in cold, even tones, said:
"The boy  who  hissed,  stand up."
In a second a tu 1, broad shouldered youth was on  his feet.
"A ,"   said   the   Principal,   "you
will take ten demerits."
Tho boy turned white and sat
down. He. and another were running
neck and neck for the headship of
tho school, and the Prince of Wales
scholarship. Ten demerits meant
that a number of marks representing
a fair month's work would be deducted at the end of the year. The
judgment of the Principal meant
death to the offender's chancis: it
was about the sli.'Test sentence that
could be imposed, short of expulsion.
The culprit, who is one of the leaders of his profession to-day, took his
punishment gamely, but it was neither mitigatid nor remitted, although
h's rival and conaueror—as subsequent events showed—begged Mr.
liuchan to let him take live of his
demerits himself. This might have
al'owtd a third boy to gain the coveted distinction, but this was doubtful, as the two lads mentioned were
head and shoulders above their form-
mates. Mr. Buchan sternly" rc'uscd
to make any change, so thc friend
and advocate of the boy who hissed
went ahead and cantered in with the
honors. He was as much provoked
at being denied the contest as he
was pleased at his success.

Sir Melville Parker, Hurt.
Tho illness of Sir Melville rorkcr.
Bart., is causing his friends much
anxiety. Sir Melville, who is nearly
80 years of age, suffered a stroke of
paralysis at liis Lome near CookS-
ville a few days ago, and his condition is rather grave. Should he die,
the baronetcy is ended.
Sir Melville is the second son of
the late Admiral Sir Henry Parker,
and is the sixth baronet, the title
having been Cleft*" '' in 1707. The Admiral settled near Cooksville, and
had three sons, 1'enry, who married
a sister of the late John re-tor, Q.
C; Albert, who also married in Ca-
nada, and Sir Melville, who married
.lessie, also sister to Mr. Hoctor, in
1817. lie succeeded to the ba'onetcv
in 1877. Tho'f one child, May, mur-
ried Lieut. Cordon of the imperial
service, afterwards Commodore Gordon of the Canadian naval ser. ice.

Dean Farrar, who was at one time
head master of Marlboiough College,
had what one of his boys, who wi lies of him in Coi.nhill, calls "the
great manner." Therefore, he was
admired and reverenced, and sometimes gently smiled at. Often,
in his teaching, his mind
wandered to bthur things while
he mechanically repealed the
statement which the lesson demanded. It happinul. too, that he some-
limes forgol how often lie had said
a thing important enough to be uttered more than once. rl he boys
noticed this, und wero sometimes
tempted lo play upon his unsuspicious nature; but whenever any of
them led him into the trap, they
were always speedily soi ry ior it.
During one term there were weekly
lessons in the S<ptuagint, where the
Oreek words for "word" and "worie"
are interchanged. Ucguiarly e*cry
Monday morn.ng the dian would explain this confusion in the words:
"The reason why ergon is used here
instead of logos is that it is a
translation of the Hebrew word da-
bar, whiih means both 'word' and
'thing.' "
The last monosyllables would come
rolling out, in the grand manner,
like the boom of a great bell
One momng a light-minded boy
whispered lo another, "We have not
had dabar yet.    Shall I get it?"
'To,  if you  daie."
"If you phase, sir," said tho mischievous one, "why is ergon used
instead of logos, in the passage just
translated?"
"Ah," replied the master, "you
could not be expected to I now (hai.
The reason is—" and forth rolled the
usual   explanation.
To see tho dean walk with stately
tread into the open trap was not. too
small t. Joke to please a schoolboy.
There was a nionii nt of suppressed
delight, but succeeding that a ro-
mot'soful silence; and after the session the boy-joker was begged by his
fellows never to repeat the jest.
No schoolmaster was ever more
sensitive to poor results than was
this one. At a certain history lesson, when a boy had failed to answer some tri ling que; tion, the
ma"tor Hung down his book and ox-
claimed, "My dear boys! I am profoundly din' imaged. 1 or fifteen
yca:s of my life 1 have been letting
down a bucket into an empty woil.
and drawing it up again. I'or fifteen years of my life 1 have bein

- ARTHUR STRING.*.
Pan   Picture   of  Canada's   New   Literary
Li_.ht    A Stalwart Poet.
poet of almost heroic    build    is
There are six feet
1
I Arthur Stringer
1 and an inch of him.   Also he is more
k or less good to look at.  An English
I recruiting sergeant would scan    him
j. with longing eyes.    Seeing him in a
{ crowd you might pick hitn out for   a
champion athlete or, by his    smooth
face,   for a matinee    idol.     There's
nothing about   him    to suggest    the
poet—save his poetry.    Neither   does
he seem to have thc poetic temperament.   He  is no dreamer,  no    idler.
His mental   poise seems   to    be    as
sound and as well bala.   ?d    as    his
physical carriage, which is saying   a
good deal.
Canada is rather proud of having
produced such a poet, and with good
cause. London, Ontario, is his birthplace. His yeais are about thirty.
He comes from a fine old English
family in which there's an earldom
or something of thc sort, but Mr.
Stringer carefully keeps this fact in
the background. He stands on his
own feet. You may see by glancing
at him that he needs no coat-of-
arms background to proclaim his nobility.
He studied and played football at
Toronto Univeisity and at Oxford.
If they gave him any degrees he has
forgotten it. Before he was twenty-
five he had published two volumes of
verse iu Canada. They were slim
little volumes which brought him
small fume and less money. Yet it
was poetry, good poetry. The Canadians, however, prefer to wait until
"The States" discover their geniuses
beioro showing their own appreciation. So Mr. Stringer sailed down
into New York, prepared to starve
in a hull bedroom. But he didn't.
The New York magazine editors—
who are much maligned, vou know—
promptly discovered that his poetry
was good and paid hiin well for his
verses. Since then, both by short
stories and verse, he has been winning wide recognition and tho regards which accompany the same.
.lust, now, while his new book of
poems is being praised bv the London critics, while the publishers are
issuing his first novel, "Tho Silver
Poppy," Mr. Stringer is up in Ontario, on -the shores of Lake Erie,
looking after his fruit farm, working
in blue shirt and overalls and enjoying himself hugely. Next fall, when
his melons and pears and grapes
have nil been gathered and sold, he
will pack his trunks and typewriting
machine und start either for New-
York or London, where he will settle
down for a winter's hard work.
Mr. Stringer's novel is likely to receive an extraordinary amount of attention in the newspapers on account of the identity of the well-
known writer who figures in the book
as Cordelia Vaughn. Mr, Stringer
first met the ladv in the manner described in the book, and his experiences of this "yellow vampire*' are
faithfully described. Every writer in
New York will know the original of
Mr. Stringer's heroine, and few will
dispute thc truth of his portraval.
It is more than likelv that Cordelia
Vaughn's real name will soon be suggested in the newspapers.—The Reader.
IN A "WIND-JAMMER."
Mr. Raall Labburk  It-lla How It  Kevin to
Be Kaucked Hound in Navigating
Waters uf Cape Horn.
Cape Horn has always been the
terror of sailors. Mr. Basil Lubbock, who went round thc horn in a
"wind-jammer" und put his experiences into a book, tells how it feels
to be knocked about in the cape
seas. During the gale of which lie
writes the decks were full of water,
some big seus were coining aboard,
and the men had a dillicult job clewing up the miz/.en upper topsail,
which had conic in as soon as the
topgullnutsails were fast. The n came
the terrible business of squaring in
the yards, one of the most dangerous of all jobs when a heavy sea is
running. Many a ship has lost a
whole watch over the side while the
men were at work on the braces.
Continuing, Mr. Lubbock says:
"I   was   about   fifth   on   the rope
with old Wilson singing out on one
side of me and Higgins on the other.
We   had hardly    taken two pulls at
thc   brace   when a   huge sea broke
aboard   right   over our heads,    and
both   watches were   swept off   their
feet in every direction.
I     "Wilson, Higgins and I received thc
' full force of it.   For one tiny moment of time I saw thc great hissing
mass   as it    reared its foaming top
; higher and higher above us, and then
; crash!   it  toppled    its whole weight
upon us.
J "Knocked down and overwhelmed
by the monster, I hung to the brace
with all iny strength. Lnder water,
with my heels above my head, 1 saw
dimly the round bundles washing
near me which 1 knew were Wilson
and   Higgins.
"Over and over thc sea rolled me,
aud hurled mc with terrible forco
against the main-hatch, and three
times my poor right knee came
ugainst the ring-bolt.
"I  hung   to the    brace until   the
i water tore it    from my grasp,   and
away I went, first my head up, then
my feet, a plaything to thu whim of
! the water.
I    "It  washed   mc  round  the  hatch,
bumped me against the fife-rail, and
rolled mo into the scuppers.    I   got
entangled and disentangled with other human bundles,  and  never  for   a
second could 1 get  my  head    above
water.
!    "At last   the water  began to run
off,  and I  found    myself sitting   up
. with my head out.   I lay to the star-
1 board of the main-hatch.   Close   to
me in the scuppers lay three men in
a tangled mass.   Mixed up in the fife-
rail  were two more.      Another   lay
! gasping on his back under the break
' of tho poop.
I     "Above the gale I heard the mate's
j voice,   'Main-brace,   there!     Up   you
get.' "
I    "I  picked    myself   up,   dazed  and
I half-drowned.   Tho captain,  who was
on the poop, seeing the whole of his
ship's crew washing about the decks,
dashed down to thc deck up to his
. waist in water, went to the head of
I the brace,   and   cheering us on  ami
| hauling to his own singing out, soon
got us going again.
j    "No one  was Tost.      Such is Providence!     We ought  to    have   been
killed;  we ought to have been washed overboard; but at sea Providence
has constantly  to    intervene,  or  no
sailor would live long."
LADY COLEBROOKE.
Where She   Got  the ( rent Thut Wai "So
Pull of MznIAcance."
Here's a good ctory told about
Lady Colebrooke, that prominent
Englishwoman who visited this
country last winter. Lady Colebrooke is of the well known Paget
family. Lord Colcbrooke's ancestor^
are eq|ually aristocratic, and the Colebrooke crest is a rampant lion, three
doves over thc head and a wolf
couehant above all. It is an elaborate affair. When Ijuly Colebrooke
was dining out, with one of the opulent hostesses of Long Island sito
glanced casually at the dinner service, every bit of which was duly
embossed with a crest. She was accustomed to heraldic china and did
not at once inspect the design minutely. Later in the evening, to her
great surprise, sho became aware that
the Colebrooke crest was upon all of
her hostesses' dinner service. "Where
did you get this crest?" she exclaimed impulsively. The hostess replied
unconcernedly: "Isn't it a pretty
one? I picked it out when we furnished this house. It was the prettiest I could find, and those dear little
doves, I think, are so full of significance." Lady Colebrooke murmured
sadly, "So full of significance."

NIAGARA'S RELICS.
Museum   Is   the Aim of  tli*>   O'.l   Town's
wi.sto ical Soelety- A  Valuubl*
.atintliaii t ollt*cti«»n.
There are few places in Canada as
full of the traditions of thc past ns
Niagara, and the Niagara Historical
Society is doing an iuipo tant work
in collecting and preserving those of
a material character. It has chosen
the 17th of September as its anniversary, because on that day in the
year 17'.»12 the lirst Parliament of
Upper Canada met at N ia„ara-on-the-
J.aKc. The Settlement was at lirst
calJi-d Nest Niagara,"then butlfcrs-
hii rg. from the leader of the Hangers,
whose naiiie has hi en preserved in |
Butlers Barracks. Col. Simcoo, who
was made the first Governor, ihnnpr-
ed the name again to Newark, and
that became the lirst capital of U|>-
|>er Canada. In the short space of
seven years thc society has made one
of the best collections of historical
documents and articles in Ontario;
it. has placed eight stone ousts to i
mark historic spots, and has minted
ten pamphlets, all bearing on the
early and vital history of Canada.
The credit for the work that has
been done to preserve from oblivion
these relics of the past is chiefly due
to tho.President, "Miss Janet Carnochan.
There  is much doubt as to     where
the first sitting of Parliament    wns
held,  but the  weight of testimony is
in  favor of the old  wooden  building
still   standing  and   known  as     Navy
Hall.    The Parliament  first    met   on :
Sept.   17,  17t)2,  and  The  Upper  Ca- j
nada    Gazette    published  there says j
that on Juno 4, 1793, Governor Sim- |
coe held a levee at Navy Hall And so j
the    probability is tliat  Navy    Hall
was tho meeting place.     It is certain
that many of the  otlicial  documents j
of the early  part of the ye.r    were
dated  from   the  hall.     The  building
is  still  standing,   though    in  a sadlv i
dilapidated    condition.     The     worst
wrench  was given  by  a farm >r    who
us.ed  the hall  as a stable.    Throuuh
the elTorts of the society the    attention  of the Government was    called
to  this,  and  the  farmer  was ordered
1o vacate, but  in  doing so he    tore
down a portion of one wall in order
to carry out his cattle stalls. If this
is  really  the  fust     seat  of constitutional    Government  in    Upper  Canada,   more than the antiquarian    will
approve of its    rescue  from destruction.
The stone markers which have been
placed aie: '1) The site of the first i
burial of Sir Isaac Crock, Fort
George, 1812-1824, (2) site of military council and Indian council
louse; (3) site of Gleaner printing
•oflice, 1817, and of Masonic Hall.
1792; (4) site of Government House,
burned in 1812; (5) spot of burial
•of bodies of three soldiers who fell in
battle, May 27, 1813; (6) residence
of Count de Puisaj'O, built in lTi'S;
il) site of Navy Hall and first Parliament House; (8) Court House of
■Counties of Lincoln, Welland and
Haldimand,  1847.
Among the pamphlets which the
•society has issued are: (1) Taking of
Fort George by Col. Gruikshank,
•edition exhausted; (2) slave rescue,
Fort Niagara, centennial poem; (3)
blockade of Fort George, Col. Cruik-
shank; (4) Memorial to U.10. Loyalists, battle of Queens ton Heights; (5)
historic houses; (fi) Niagara library,
1800-1820, early schools, by Janet
Carnochan; (7) historic buildings;
(8) family history, by Wm. Kirby,
F.It.S.C.
The collection of the society, numbering over 1,600 articles, is now in
-a small room on the second floor of
the old Court House. It includes
books and [papers printed in Nie;_nara
or relating thereto, startinc with
The Upper Canada Gazette of Julv
•*f. 1.794, a large number of portraits,
pictures, maps and drawings which
have proved of g;eat assistance in
Bottling disputed points of historical
Interest, military clothing, weapons,
household utensils, Indian and ot hot-
relies. Ono result of tho energetic
president's researches has been to
show that St. Mark's Church was
built in 1H04, and not in 1792, as
slated on the brass tablet set in the
wall.
Notwithstanding the inconvenience
of location, the collection has been
inspeted overy year by thousands,
and forms a valuable addition to the
historic memories of the place. The
space, however, is altogether too
limited to permit of proper exhibition and arrangement, and there is
always the danger of fire.
Recently the following were appointed a committee to devise stops
for obtaining a suitable building for
the collection from private sources,
the municipal authorities and the
Government: Miss Carnochan, President; C. C. James, Duvid Doyle,
John Hops Robertson, Mrs. H.

AUSTRALIA'S FORCES.
Tlieir Unification   i'rocaeding Undor Gen.
Hutton'* I'Imii   Into I e.leral Army.
The    Melbourne    correspondent    of
The Chronicle writes regarding the
unification of the Australian military
forces that whut General llutton has
obtained the Government's assent to
is practically this: The complete organization of (1) a mobile field force
capable of being sent anywhere in
Australia at short notice, und (2) a
garrison foicc designed to defend th.
vulnerable spots in each State. Doth
these forces are composed of volunteers or militia acting under the instructions of some 1,500 professional
soldiers who form the nucleus of artillery and garrisons required for fixed defences, the technical direction of
forts and mines and a military tuition Staff. 'lhe Australian field
force will consist on a peace footing
of 13,911 men and sixty guns, capable of expansion in time of war to
26,533 nun and eighty-four guns
The garrison force will be composed
of 11,896 nun and twenty-six guns,
exclusive of the rifle clubs, which now
total over 30,(100 men. Taking the
two forces and the rille clubs together it will be possible for Australia
to put in the field or at her forts in
time of war at least 68,000 trained
men, made up, approximately, as follows:
Field  force 26,500
Garrison   force 11,900
Kille clubs 30,000
68.400
With a physically fit manhood population of 700.000 to draw upon, thc
68,400 trained men would become the
backbone of an army of half a million should invasion actual!.-! occur.
For the purposes of broad generalization the Federal army now stands
divided into eighteen regiments of
Australian Light Horse, thirteen bat-
te'iesof Australian artillery, three
field companies of Australian Engineers, and twelve regimen is -three
brigades) of Australian Infantry.
Each arm is given an excess of ollicers in proportion to the peace establishment of privates. Peace cadres,
with their full complement of trail cl
officers and non-commissioned ofl'ceis
can therefore on nobili/a'ion in time
of national emergency bo expend <1 to
war requirements without any danger
of crisis th ough lack of efficient
leaders.
RHEUMATISH
—00—
RHEUMATISM ie, without
doabt, one of tne most painful ailments known. Local
applications may, in very
slight cases, tend to lessen
the pain to some degree, but
they never cure.
Rheumatism is a disease
arising from an excess of
uric acid in the blood, and
therefore the proper method
of treatment is to neutralize
this condition by treating
the Mood.
Prompt measures are necessary to transform uric acid
into urea and ihus prevent
it from spreading to different parts of the body, e--
peeia ly to the pgiou of the
heart.
To those suffering from
any form of rheumatic troubled we would recommend to
