This is surely the extreme of ignorance and of impudence. What has Fir
Wilfrid Laurier done to Canada to justify him in so belittling the country as it
was thirty years after the Union?
What claim hns he to the ri_,ht to brush
out of history such leaders as Sir John
A. Macdonald, Sir George Cartier, and
the other statesmen of that day? Canada has followed a natural course of de-
velopmeut since 1896 as it did before.
Its trade has developed like the trade
nf ether countries. It is decreasing this
yenr n ore rapidly than it grew, and falling faster than the trade of the United
States or of Great Brilain. Between
1896 and 1906 Canadian trade increased
148 per cent. The exports of Mexico
and of the Argentine grew fur more rapidly in that decade than the exports of
Canada, and tbey are holding their own
better than tbat of Canada.
manufacturer, and it was necessary to
conciliate him. So the day after his
nomination, the Globe devoted a leading article to the woolen industry,
praising the Lanark condidate as a
mode! of noble unselfishness, and promising that since thc woolen industry
eqnired relief, tlie Liberal party would
give it.
The other case is that of a Government organ at Ottawa which attacked
Mr. Foster for speaking favorably of the
Frince Edward Island tunnel, declaring
that the work would cost $160,000,000
and was the worst kind of wild cal
scheme. This mado trouble in Prince
E J ward Island, and the Free Press was
seen, with the result that in less than a
week it published another article,
stating that the first one was not to be
taken seriously, and that the only hope
for the Prince Edward Island tunnel
was from the Liberal Government.

The district fruit exhibit proved to be
a grand success and the numerous van-
ties which were on show bore striking
testimony to the adaptability of the
Slocan as a fruit growing district. In
addition to the display of fruit tbere
was also two fine pumpkins, grown by
Herb. Thomlinson and a giant squash
raised by T. Avison, which for size will
take some beating, being 165lbs. weight.

Tho leaders ot the two parties have

Sir Wilir d Laurier held his at Sorel, a
stronghold of his own party, where
there are many hundred government
employees. Mr. Borden disenssed and
supported the Conservative platform,
and dealt forcibly witb the government
record. Sir Wilfuid Laurier talked
about himself, boasted that his government had done great things to make
Canada conspicuous, but kept clear ot
details. Tbe Premier has already persuaded himself that ho is not only the
greatest Canadian statesman, but the
first and only one. He represents him
self as the creator of Canada and only
asks One more term to finish the job.
To show how inflated the Premier has
become one has only to cite his statement at Sorel, that Canada is now the
third commercial country in the world,
and the ailiiiiiation of all nations,
whereas "in 1896 the position of Canada was that of an insignificant colony,
forgotten by France, tcarcely known by
England, completely unknown by Eu-
Sir Wilfrid's childish   vanity   works
two way_.   Out of power he could not
see that Canada was great-   Ho could
not appreciate the service of the Canadian statesmen  who   established  the
Union, who  acquired tbe Northwest,
who added British Columbia, Manitoba,
and Prince Edward Island to the nation
who opened up   the   western   country
with   railways,   established   steamship
lines on tbe Pacific, and founded a national industrial pystem which  Sir Wilfrid has not dared  to overthrow.   He
and his friends were  timid,  sceptical,
and unpatriotic, believing and declaring
it impossible to keep this country independent of the United States, jealous of
every suggestion ot closer union  with
the Empire,  ridiculing  the loyal and
hopeful   aspirations  of patriotic   Canadians, and doing all in their power to
make them despair of tlieir country.   It
is no wonder looking back at tbe Canada of his own former conceptions, Sir*
Wilfrid should now picture   it as  miserable,  pitiable,   contenip.ib.e  colony.
But the real Canada  twelve  years  ago
was very much what Canada is  to-day
in status and influence, and a vory much
better Canada, in the reputation of her
public men, and in tbe record of her
administration.   Her  public men had
cut a much better figure in diplomacy
than the present ministers.   Her financial credit was higher and financial obligations less.
Two amusing episodes bave occurred
in the party press. Just before the close
of Parliament the woolen manufacturers
whose industry is in a bad way, asked
for tariff relief. The Toronto Globe,
chief organ of the Government party,
attacked the manufacturers for their demands, and praised Laurier for rejecting them. But the Government candidate   in   North   Lanark  is  a   woolen
Guarding vs. Growing.
Leas Costly to Protect Forests Than
Grow New Ones.
"Prevention is better than cure." A
new application of the old saying may
be made in considering forestry policy
In this case the saying may be expanded into something like the following:
"It is better to prevent forest fires (anil
so save many thousand dollars' worth
of valuable timber) than to try to remedy the evil by planting tieee to fill tin
places of those destroyed."
Five dollars per acre is the minimum
price given by forestry experts for forest
tree planting; and the price raiij;e
from this up to $10 per acre and more.
When the lower figure is taken as tin
basis of calculation, the planting of one
square mile will cost .3,200; to plant
ten square miles will require $32,000,
and the planting up of a township six
miles square (area, thirty-six square
miles) will require the expenditure of
$115,200. Such figures are *ept to make
one stop and think before advocating
extensive planting.
The cost to tlie Dominion Government
of patrolling tne Railway Belt in British Columbia during the last fiscal year
(April 1st, 1907, to March 31st, 1008)
amounted to $14,111,64. The area of the
Railway Belt is a little over ten million
acres. The cost, then, of patrolling this
tract wns less tban 1 1-2 mills per acre,
or about 90 cents per square mile. No
fire of any magnitude was reported during the year. The railway belt is exceptionally well guarded, but even with
the cost several times what it is, the
expense is well worth while, considering the value ot the mature timber and
young growth thus saved.

(By J. C. HARRIS).
For the benefit of those who take
down tbe District Exhibit from the S!o-
cau in tlie years to come, it will be as
well to give an account of our experience in getting the exhibit to tho Fair
ground and setting up our display.
The exhibit was shipped as freight, ns
it was felt that it would prove cheaper
and equally as sat:sfactory as to express
it and it turned out, owing to the kindness and consideration of the C. P. R.
officials, we were able to get it to the
fair ground in good time.
At Slocan City we made sure tbere
was a way car going tbat day, also that
our exhibit was placed on board After
dinner Tom Avison nnd I set forth to
forage around for further specimens;
we made our way to Mr. Campbell's
gardens and met with great success,
getting real greengage plums (not Imperial gage), also Idaho pears, a round
winter variety, also two or three sorts of
apples that I hope to find out the names
uf and report next week. Mr. Campbell bas some capital fruit, his "Wealthy" apples were especially fine, and
there was lees scab than in any other
irchard I have seen. Mr. R. Kirk-
wood's garden contributed a further
variety (name unknown) and Mr. Rae

us to unload our exhibit ou tbe platform. Tom hailed an express and in
rive minutes we were sitting on top ot
our boxes, driving in triumph to the
We carried our exhibit to tbe stall
assigned to us and then returned to
carry in the squash. Imagine tbe sensation as we lifted it out of the crates
amidst the cheers of thc numerous small
boys and with Tom Avison blushing
like a bridegroom, we bore it to its
place. It bas no competitors; the
threatened competition had vanished,
Mr. Gould was wandering around
Nelson waiting for the boat to go back
to Fernie. We commandeered bis services and could not have found a belter
man. Tom Avison and myself and all
who take interest in our exhibit have
great reason to be tbanful to him.
After supper we three returned to the
Exhibition, where we found great bustle and a crowd of exhibitors setting
things to rights. Tbe management were
most courteous under very trying circumstances, with numbers of distracted
exhibitors applying for plates, tacks, information, etc. Mr. Starkey was very
helpful; they say it is possible to find
the wrong side of him, but there is bo
much of the right side that I personally,
have never discovered the wrong. There
are a few things which I would suggest
that our exhibitois lake in future, viz,:
a clew hammer, a tack hammer, string,
wire, scissors, and material to decorate
tne stall.   The  management provide a

Prominent New Denver Citizen Seriously Wounded.
Herbert. Cue, secretary of the Town
Improvement Society, was on Sunday
last ihe victim of a most extraordinary
shooting mishap. Along with Richard
Blueir.enauer lie bad journeyed up Goat
mountain for thc purpose of bunting
goat. At about half-past three a grouse
was sighted at which Bluemenaner fired
from a distance of about fifteen feet, and
the bullet, which was a 803, after hitting
the bird, struck a rock and glancing off
at almost right angles, struck Cue iu the
left side, wounding him severely.
Bluemenaner, atter rendering all the
help he cou'd, hurried down the trail
for assistance, and arrived at Nelson's
ranch in an almost exhausted condition
and informed them of the unfortunate
occurrence. From thero word waa
brnrfght into town, and a party of men,
with stretcher and other appliancs,
quickly Bet out for ths scene ot the accident and to convey the wounded man
down to the hospital.
Owing ta darkness having set in and
the dangerous nature of the trailj this
proved a very difficult undertaking, mid
not until nearly 2 a.m. Monday morning was that institution reached.
On examination by Dr. Brouse it was
found that the bullet had penetrated
the left side and passed through the
kidneys, but it was impossible at that
time to locate where it had lodged.
An operation has been deemed inadvisable at the present as there appears
to be no danger of serious complications
arising, as the bullet is Baid to have
been a steel one and therefore not poisonous.
The latest reports are to the effect
ttat Cue ie progressing very favourably.

display at the Fair.

tinctive appearance  to our display we
should  prvoide   decorations.    I  think
such decorations can easily be overdone:
but a proper amount would help to set
off the fruit.
A familiar countenance loomed up in
the adjoining stall; our old friend, Tom

greater advantage. It is no small job to
transform the bare rough stall into a
respectable and worthy stand to set forth
the fruit; but we finally succeeded and
then went to work to unpack.
We felt at first that our stall would
look mean and tho whole display too
small; but as box alter box was opened
up, our spirits rose, and when Ed.
Shannon's "Woolf River" apples shone
forth we felt that the Slocan was well
represented. Mr. Cockle, ot Kas'.o, admired our fruit and brought several
other to examine the big yellow egg
plums from Mr. Fisher's garden. The
other stalls were adorned with boughs
of crab apples, plums, sheaves of Timothy, wheat, oats, etc., and another
year wc would do well to provide such
things; but I did not see any card, announcing where an exhibit came from,
to equal the beautiful one that Miss
Ada McDougall designed for oui* stall.

nounn the "corner of tne mole a great
dark boat dashed Into view ringed
round with foam from her flying prow
���aud from the ten pairs of oars whicli
swung from either side of her. . A
dainty white ensign drooped over heist ern, and in her bows the sun's light
was caught by a heavy brass carro-
nade. The captain brought his glass
to bear upon them aud whistled; then
lie glanced up at the clouds once more.
"Thirty men," said he, "and they go
three puces to our two. You, sir, take
your blue coat off this deck or you'll
bring trouble upou us. The Lord will
look after his own If they'll only keep
from foolishness. Get these hatches

nnd Hiram Jefferson? Let them stand
by to clap tliem on again when I whistle. Starboard; starboard! Keep her
as full as she'll draw. Now, Amos,
and you, Tomlinson, come here until I
have a word with you."
The three stood in consultation upon
the poop, glancing back nt their pursuer. There could be no doubt that
the wind was freshening. It blew
briskly In their faces as they looked
back, but it was not steady yet, and
the boat was rapidly overhauling them.
Already tliey could see the faces of the
marines who sat In the stern and the
���gleam of the lighted linstock which
the gunner held In his hand.
"Hola!" cried an officer In excellent
English.   "Lay her to or we Are!"
"Who are you, and what do you
want?" shouted Ephrnlm Savage In a
voice that might have been heard from
the bank.
"We come In the king's name, and
wo want a party of Huguenots from
Paris who came on board of your vessel at Rouen."
"Brace bnck the foreyard and lay her
to!" shouted the captain. "Drop a ladder over the side there and look smart.
So!   Now we are ready for them."
Tlie yard was swung round, nnd the
vessel lay quietly rising nnd falling on
tlie wnves. The boat dashed alongside,
ber brass cannon trained upon the brlg-
iintine, and her squad of marines with
tlieir Angers upon their triggers ready
to open fire. Tliey grinned nud shrugged their shoulders when they saw that
tlieir solo opponents were three unarmed men upon the poop. The officer was
on deck In nn instant, with his drawn
sword In liis band.

-CtJme tip, two or you," he cried.
"You stand here at the head of the lad-

you can fix It to this stanchion. Keep

i Some such thought hnd passed
through lhe officer's head, but tho captain's remark put him upon his mettle.
' "Come with me, corporal," said he.
"Down this ladder, you say?"
! "Yes, down the ladder and straight
on. He lies between those two cloth
biles." Ephrnlm Savage looked up
with a smile playing nbout the corners
of his grim mouth. The wind was
whistling uow in the rigging, and the
stays of the masts were humming like
two harp strings. Amos Green
lounged beside the French sergennt
who guarded the end of the rope ladder, while Tomlinson, the mate, stood
with a bucket of water In his hnnd
exchanging remarks in very bad
French with the crew of the boat beneath hlm.
The   officer   made   his   way   slowly
down the ladder wliich led into the
hold. The corporal followed him, nnd
had his chest level with the deck when
the other had reached the bottom. II

gloom around him which startled the
young Frenchman,

who gathered the officer's meaning
from his gesture. Putting the sole of
his boot against the man's chest, he
gave a shove which sent both him and
the ladder crashing down on to the
officer beneath him. As he did so he
blew his whistle, and in a moment th.
hatch was back in its place and
clamped down on each side with iron
The sergeant had swung round at
the sound of the crash, but Amos
Green, who had waited for the movement, throw his arms round him and
hurled him overboard into the sea.
At the same instant the connecting
rope was severed, tlie foreyard creaked
back into position once more and
the bucketful of salt water soused
dowu over the gunner and his gun,
putting out his linstock and wetting
his priming. A shower of balls from
the marines piped through tho air or
rapped up against the planks, but the
boat was tossing and jerking ln thc
short, choppy waves, and to aim was
impossible. In vain the men tugged
and strained nt tlieir oars, while the
gunner worked like a maniac to relight bis linstock and to replace bis
priming. Tlio boat had lost Its weigh,
while the brigantine was flying along
now with every sail bulging and swelling to bursting point. Crack! went the

dim line whicli blended wilh the cloud
"I am frightened about my father,
Amory," said Adele as thoy stood together by the shrouds and looked back
at the dim cloud upon tho horizon
which marked the position of that
France which they were never to see
"What do you mean, Adele? My
uncle is hale and hearty, and ho frill
accustom himself to this new life."
"If It only could bo so! But I fear, I
fear that he ls over old for such a
change. He snys not a word of complaint, but I read upon his face that
lie ls stricken to the heart."
De Catinat was about to suggest that
the voyage might restore the merchant's health, when Adele gnve a cry
of surprise and pointed out over the
port quarter.
"Look!" she cried. "There is something floating upon the sea. I saw It
upou the crest of a wave."
He looked in the direction In whicli
Ihe pointed, but It wus so far from
_im that he could make nothing of it,
hut sharper eyes than liis had caught a
glance of it. Amos Green had seen the
girl point.
"Captain Ephralm," said he, "there's
a boat on the starboard quarter."
The New England seaman whipped
up his glass.
"Aye, It's a boat," said he, "but nn
empty one. Maybe It's been washed
off from some ship or gone adrift from
shore. I'ut her hard down, Mr. Tomlinson, for it Jus. so happens that I
am in need of a boat at present."
Half a minute later tho Golden Rod
had swung round nnd was running
swiftly down toward the black spot
whicli still bobbed and danced upon
the waves. As they neared her they
could see that something was projecting over her side.
"It's a man's head!" cried- Amos
But Epliraim's grim face grew grim
mer. "It's n man's foot," said he. "I
mink that you had best take the gal
*ielow to the cabin."
Amid a solemn hush they ran alongside this lonely craft wliich hung out
so sinister a signal.
She was n little thirteen foot cockleshell, very broad for her length and
so flat in the bottom that she had been
meant evidently for river or lake work.
Huddled together beneath the seuts
were three folk, a nan in the dress of
i respectable artisan, a woman of the
same class and a little child about a
year old. The boat was half full of
water, and the woman and child were
���stretched with their faces dowuward,
the fair curls of the Infant and the
dark locks of the mother washing to
nnd fro like water weeds upon the
surface. The mnn lay with a slate
colored face, his chin cocking up toward the sky, his eyes turned upward
lo tlie whites and liis mouth wide open,
-bowing a leathern crinkled tongue
like a rotting leaf. In the bows, all
huddled In n heap and with a single
paddle still grasped in his baud, there
crouched a very small man clad lu
black, nn open book lying across his
face and one stiff leg jutting upward,
with the heel of the foot resting between the rowlocks.
A boat had been lowered by the Golden Roil, and the unfortunates wero
loon conveyed upon deck. No particle
iif either food or drink wns to be found
ir anything save the single paddle and
ho* open Bible, which lay acroos the
���anall man's face. Man, woman and
child had all been dead a dny at the
reast, and so, with the short prayers
iscd upon the seas, tliey were burled
rom tbe vessel's side. The small man
had at flrst seemed nlso to be lifeless,
_ut Amos had detected some slight
'hitter of his heart, and the faintest
haze was left upon the watch glnss
which was held beforo his mouth.
Wrapped In a dry blanket, he was laid
beside the mast, and the mate forced a
few drops of rum every few minutes
between his lips until the little speck
of life which still lingered ln hlm
might bo fanned to a flame. Meanwhile Ephralm Savage hnd ordered up
the two prisoners whom he had entrapped at Houfleur.
"Very sorry, captain," said the seaman, "but either you hnd to come
with us, d'ye see, or we had to stay
frith you. They're waiting for me over
at Boston, nud so lu truth I couldn't
tarry. Whicli would you prefer, to go
on jvjtl) us lo America or to go back
to France?**
"Back to France, if I can find my
way, if ouly to have a word with that
fool of a gunner."
"Well, we emptied a bucketful of
water over his linstock aud priming,
d'ye see, so maybe he did all he could.
But there's France, where that thickening is, over yonder."
"I see it; I see it! Ah, if my feet
were ouly upou it once more!"
"There is a boat beside us, and you
may take it."
"My God, what happiness! Corporal
Lemoine, the boat! Let us push off at
"But you need a few things first.
Good Lord, who ever heard of a man
pushin' off like that? Mr. Tomlinson,
just sling a keg of water and a barrel
of meat and of biscuit Into tills boat.
Hiram Jefferson, bring two oars aft.
It's a long pull witli the wind in your
teeth, but you'll be there by tomorrow
night, and the weather Is set fair."
The two Frenchmen were soon provided with all that they were likely to
require and pushed off with a waving
of hats and a shouting of "Bon voyage!" Tho yard was swung round
again, and the Golden Rod turned her
bowsprit for the west.
But while these things had been done
the senseless man beneath the mast
had twitched his eyelids, had drawn a
little gasping breath and then finally
had opened his eyes. Old Catinat had
come upon deck, and nt the sight of
the man and of his dross he had run
forward and had raised his head reverently.
"Ho Is ono of tlie faithful," ho cried.
"He is one of our pastors. Ah! Now
indeed n blessing will be upon our

his head.   "I fear that I may not come

and when we heard the orders of the
wicked king I and two of the faithful,
with their little one, put forth in the
hope thnt we might come to England.
But on the first day there came a wave
whicli swept away one of our oars and
all that wus In the bont���our bread,

though 1 feel that my own time Is not

I'aitliful, mny I not serve you in any

Tlie merchant shook his head, and
then suddenly a thought flashed upon
liim. and he ran, with joy upon bis face,
and whispered eagerly lo Amos Green.
Amos laughed and strode across to the
"It's time," said Ephrnlm Savage
Then the whisperers went to De Catinat. He Sprang in the air, and his
eyes shone with delight. And then they
went down to Adele ln her cabin, and
she started and blushed nnd turned her
sweet face away and patted her hair
with her hands as woman will when a
sudden call is made upon her. And
so, since haste was needful and since
even there upon the lonely sea there
was one coming who might at nny moment snap their purpose, they found
themselves In a few minutes���this gnl-

"It would huve been interesting." he

They Succeeded the System of Nomination by Caucus.
Conventions have not always noml
nnted our presidents nnd vice presidents. For more than thirty years
presidential candidates were nnmed by
n cniicus mnde tip of members of the
house and the senate. This system
died when In 1824 the caucus insisted
upon by Martin Van liurcii nnd otl.er
friends of \yillinm II. Crawford of
Georgia defeated Crawford, which
throw the election Into the house on
account of the scattering electoral vote
caused by the entrance of Clny, Calhoun, Jackson nnd John Qnlncy Adams
In the race.  This frnens elected Adnms.
The campaign of 1S28 rn consequence
wns somewhat demoralized, nnd In
1S31 the Republicans followed the example the anti-Masonic party had set
the yenr before nnd met In convention In Baltimore to nominate Henry
Clay. The Democrats held their first
nntlonal convention In the snme city
the following year, nominating Martin
Vnn Buren for vice president Tho
dominating figure of the pnrty, Andrew
Jackson, needed no Indorsement of his
candidacy for the presidency.
Tho Democrats in 1S35 nnd 1840
nominated Van Buren for the presidency In Baltimore, nnd the Whigs
nominated Clay In the same place In
1844, when the Democrats named Folk.
In 1835 Romulus M. Saunders Intro
duced the two-thirds rule to the Democratic convention, and It wns adopted.
The customs Installed nt these earlier
conventions which succeeded the tyranny of the caucus chamber have been
continued and added to from time to
time, and the conventions today nre
merely the descendants of those thnt
nominated Clay nnd Van Buren.���

top of the machine, nnd from the funnel they slide downward, alighting on
a spiral track. This track has a protecting edge or raised border containing silts corresponding to the various
sizes of the coins. As the coins of
various denominations glide downward
on to the track through some peculiar
mechanism of the machine they pass
through the slits corresponding to their
various sizes, entering their respective
baskets at the bottom of the machine.

and If variety Is preferred fancy may
run riot in choice of agreeable hues.
Burnt orange Is the siuurt color of

summer bungnlows ls shown In this
rich burnt orange tone, and the strong
color blends with strikingly artistic effect with dark woodwork and with the
vivid yellows of the goldenrod, nastur

and in tbe big square shapes that suggest hours" of delicious summer idleness, the chairs nre really light and
easy to lift about from room to room
or when required from piazza to lawn.
Besides the low rockers aud deep heart

next to tbe fashionable burnt orange
color, the always popular forest green
and a soft seal brown are high in favor.

To Digest
the Food
Bile in the intestines is as important
to disgestion as are the gastric juices
in the stomach and bile is only supplied when the liver is in active condition.
The serious and chronic forms of
indigestion are cured by Dr. A. W.
Chase's Kidney and Liver Pills because of their influence on the liver,
causing a good flow of bile to aid digestion and keep the bowels regular,
thereby preventing fermentation of
the food, the formation of gas and
all the disi _reeable symptoms of indigestion.
Long standing cases of chronic indigestion yield to Dr. A.W. Chase's
Kidney and Liver Pills after all else
has failed.
Here's the proof.
"I was for many years troubled
witb indigestion and headache and
derived no benefit from 1..9 many

Annual March of Mohan** nedans to tha
Tomb of Moses.
One of the strangest of nil the png-
eants which are to be seen In Jerusalem Is tbe aniiiin! march of tbe Mo-
hamiiieilans to the tomb of Moses. To
iheui, as well as to Christians aud
Jews. Moses Is a prophet of the highest honor. Hut. rejecting the traditions
of the Hebrews, they refuse to believe
thnt he wns buried lu n valley In the
land of Moab, as Is described in the
lust chapter of Deuteronomy, lustead
they assert Hint he wus buried where
he breathed his last, upon the summit
of Mount Nebo.
Therefore ench year nt the time of
the Greek Easter the faithful gather
liy thousands In the early morning before the site of lhe temple of Solomou
lu perfect silence waiting fc. daybreak. Later the strange scene of quiet
is entirely transformed, fanatics dancing and prencliing, hordes of dervishes
whirling about In mysterious "sacred"
'lances and hundreds of exhorters rousing the enthusiasm of their fellows.
The scene Is gaudy with hundreds of
red and green banners, nnd the only
semblance of order Is In the semiregu-
lar' organizations of marchers.
At last the procession forms, with
the bnuners borne ahead, au Inian
hearing the yntnghan of the prophet���
a short, straight edged sword used by
the armies of Mohammed���and nfter
them more dancers nud marchers.
A large part of the population of Jerusalem gathers about lhe gate, out of

Traders of many kinds Invade the
camp, for the marchers remain at the
mosque five dnys, nnd nil their supplies must be bought from the wandering merchants, who mnke n business of looking after their needs. After the first excitement fanaticism
yields to good humor, and games and
banter fill the time for those who
have paid their duties at the tomb.

Measuring a Spirit.
A man of St. Joseph, Mo., relates n
itorjvln connection with a spiritualistic
meeting once held in that town. A
man named Daniel Miller, who was
some six feet seven Inches in height,
had died recently.
The spirit of Dnnlel wns called for
by some one nt the seance mentioned.
When It hnd appeared nnd announced
Its readiness to reply to nny question,
some one nsked:
"Are you in heaven?"
"Yes." cnme from the shade of Daniel.
"Aro you an angel, Dan?"
At this juncture the questioner
paused, having apparently exhausted
his fund of questions. But, to the

water for two solid hours and poured
It into the hole In tho ground ln which
the said chuck had taken up his abode.
Getting tired, they sat down. After

cautiously left the hole nnd deliberately walked dowu lo the brook and took

The Amir is the son of one who was

An   Is'and  of   Massacres.
Hayti, the West Indian island, to
whicli public attention has just recently been directed, has been the
scene of more massacres than any other  plnce on  earth.
They began with the coming of Columbus and the rabble rout that followed him. In a few years its 3 000,000
of gentle, brown-skinned inhabitants
had perished utterly, exterminated by
fire and sword and by forced labor in
tlie mines.
Next the buccaneers seized the unhappy Island and wreaked vengeance
or. the Spaniards. Presently cnme the
French, and ior a brief space then;
was some semblance of peace. But
in 171)3 the negroes revolted and murdered practically all the whites.
On account of tiiese atrocities,
frightful reprisals took place when
Pinnoe, in due course, reconquered
the island. But the negroes bided
their time and presently rose again
under a ruffian named Dossaiimes.
Tbis time they did the thing thoroughly, Not only were all the Europeans put to death, but all having
any admixture of white blood in their
veins suffered a like fate. In all it
is computed that 5,000,000 men, women nnd children have met with violent deaths on this island of massacres
since the intruding white man first
set foot on its palm-fringed strand.
Against the King.
Many people blissfully imagine that
lese majesty���that is, insulting royalty���is a crime peculiar to foreign
countries and unknown in free and
happy Britain Thnt, however, is
where  they  make a mistake.       j��
It is, for instance, technically a
punishable offence to stick a penny
stamp on a letter upside down. Doing so is to insult the King through
his effigy, nnd n few centuries ngo���
supposing penny stamps to have been
then invented*���might easily have
landed the offender in prison on n
charge nf seeking to bring ridiculi
on the sovereign or to express c****
tempt fnr his authority by causing im
picture to stand on its head. Also,
it is a punishable offence to deface a
coin of the realm bearing tlie royal
image nnd then deliberately put it
into  circulation  again.
To strike the King would, according
to the strict letter of thc law, render
the assailant liable to tbe death penalty, no matter how trifling thc blow
was  in   reality.���Pearson's  Weekly.

"Jeannie! Jeannie! Come and see

Jean McLeod, a tall, fair girl of
twenty-two summers, hastened to her

lonely village of Bothmore and any
stranger who entered the village
streets was sure to receive marked
attention from all.

No wonder then that Jenn came
quickly  nt her mother's  call.
How glad she wfts to feel that hero
was one who would appreciate her
talents und understand her moods.
Jean McLeod, an only daughter and
her father's pet hnd indeed been
spoilt in childhood nnd as she grew
older bad been sent to a city college
that she might hnve every advantage
nnd accomplishment wnich tend to
make  the  so-enlled   finished  lndy.
Thus she had gradually grown into the fixed idea, tbut the ignorant
youth of Bothmore were just a little
below her level and that, well, they
were not learned enough to be uble to
understand nnd appreciate or sympathize with her talents, her advantages and  her ideas.
"Why, yes, mother; he bus turned

"Well I nlways ninde old Mr. Dean

It seems to me if we folk have to go
and dress every time we see the
clergyman coming, whether we bo n

that it is the curate himself who will
soon be a bore." So saying Mrs. McLeod went slowly up the stairs to give
the  required touches to her dress.
Meanwhile tlie curate had reached
the doof, which in answer to his
light rnp,  wns  opened   by  Jean.
"Pardon nie, madam, but is Mrs.
McLeod at home?"
This wns hardly the greeting Jenn
expected, but she liked the voice, and
she would make him her friend nt nil
costs. So smiling sweetly she said
"Yes, sir; my mother, Mrs. McLeod,
is nt home nnd. will bo down in a
minute. But will you please step into the parlor and wait; you are our
new curate are you not? We recognized you as you cnme up the lane,���"
"Yes, madam, I have that honor
and am indeed pleased that my parishioners recognize mo so readily."
"When you have been here as long
as I have you will be glad to have
an opportunity of recognizing some
stranger from the outer world. You
will find it very dull bore, and the
people are such a bore you cannot
help but feel it."
"I hope not, madam, My duty
[���here is not to recognize the outer
world, but tlie people of this dear
little parish, nnd I shnll do my utmost to fulfill that duty; as fon my
[celing the people a bore, I hope not,
for to my mind one has to be a bore
one's self before one can feel bored
by  others."
This wns rather more than Jean expected, and from a city-bred gentle-
ninn loo; really il wns too terrible to
be true. Why, he had as much as
told her that she was a bore. She felt
like leaving him alone and going to
tell her motlier how horrid he wns;
but no, she would stay but would
not answer his rude remark.
Although her silence wns meant to
be stinging, it seemed to her he
thought it golden, for he did not attempt to continue tlio conversation,
but sat looking out on the lawn ns if
solitude wero indeed tlie sweetest
thing  in'God's  good  earth.
Mrs. McLeod was now coming down
tbe stairs. She would bring him to
his place before her mother entered.
"Pardon, sir; my mother"���the words
were hard and cold, but the curate
seemed not to even hear her as he
rose quickly and crossed the room to
the doqr just, as ber mot her was about
to enter.
"Mrs. McLeod, I presume. I nm Mr.
Wnltham, your new curate, and it is
indeed a pleasure for me to make
vour acquaintance. I trust we may
become firm friends in the near future. I have made tlie acquaintance
of your daughter, but I believe I
have already bored her with my
views." So saying, he led Mrs. McLeod to a large ensy chair, Hie very')
one Jenn hnd chosen for him.
"Now, Mrs. McLeod, I want your
ndvice, counsel and help. I am a
stranger here at present, and from
you I wnnt some advice ns to the
quickest way to will tho hearts nnd
minds of my people, and nlso to know
who needs most the stuff fo guide

your work. I assure you, Mr. Waltham
no one has. been more overjoyed at
your coming than she. Her college
days were spent abroad, and it is
such a tie to her now to have to live
in this dull place, as she calls it. For
myself, I find it a very interesting
little  place  indeed."
"I agree with you, Mrs. McLeod,
and now I want you to help make it
interesting for me, too. Jean may
know all the people as well as you,
but since sho finds it so very dull I
am sure she does not feel for them
as you do. If it be her desire to aid
me in my work here, we will endeavor to find a way for her to do so;
but now it is your help I want."
Tlie very idea! A mnn she hnd
only met ten minutes before, culling
her Jean. And how rude he was to
speak of her in such tones. Why,
he had not even told her his name,
or that he was pleased to meet her,
or anything; and had refused her
advice witli regard to the people,
even  before  it wns  proffered.
And this wns the man she had
planned and dreamt about���the man
whom she hnd looked to, to brighten
life at Bothmore. Truly life is false,
indeed. She had been bitterly deceived.
Sitting like one in a dream, she
heard all he said to her mother, and
��� yet she did not, but when ho rose
to go she knew she wns not sorry.
He was at least more courteous now
than on his arrival. Crossing the
room, he held out his hnnd. "Miss
McLeod, your mother and I have become such staunch friends. Will
you not congratulate me? And, by
tlie wny, 1 understand thnt you nre
desirous of aiding nie also. 1 shall
count on yon, and nm sure will find
plenty of little errands of-mercy for

"Thank you, sir. I will try to be
of service to you if you so desire."
"Desire! Why, my dear Miss McLeod, I insist. You see, I have that
right, now. I am not only your rector, but also your mother's friend.
But now I must bid you farewell.

Jean watched him go quickly down
Uie lane; she was so angry with him
and yet could not help admiring hiin
as  he  swung  briskly  along.
"Well, mother, what clo you think
now of your city curate?"
"Think? Why, Jean, he is just the
mnn for the plnce. So brave and yet
so kind and thoughtful. Why, I am
sure he will aid my poor people even
more than dear old Mr. Dean; and
it will be so pleasant for you, too.
Ho snys he intends interesting you
in some enses where he is sure you
will be useful, nnd where you will
soon lose your present opinion of
your neighbors."
"Oh, indeed! He seems very confident of my services. I suppose just
becnuse he conies from Oxford, he
thinks wo will nil wait on our knees
to do his bidding. I never had to
stoop to such deeds of humility when
Mr. Dean was here, nnd I do not see
why he should need such a lot of nid.
As for being kind nnd thoughtful, I
failed to see it, if he wns. Why, be
was positively rude to ine. But I do
not intend to worry over it. I nm
going out for a walk now, but will be
buck in time to get ten, so you
need not bother about that."
Mrs. McLeod sighed deeply ns her
daughter left the room. She loved
Jean very much, but she could see
she wns fast becoming so restless and
discontented that the true sunny nature seldom hnd a chance of showing
A week later, as Jean was gathering some beautiful lilacs for her Japanese table bowls, she was surprised
to hear a voice close by: "Good-.,

would be very gratified for a glimpse
of youi- lovely flowers. No, I will not
stop to be thanked for the suggestion.
I nm sure she would hnve had tbem

Without another word the curate
moved quickly on, leaving Jean
standing  like  one  struck   dumb.
"Well, of all things! You would
really think I was a child. Still I
like his nerve, and I suppose I will

In little less than an hour Jenn
had kept her word, and with a beautiful bouquet of dowers in one band,
and such a big basket of good things
in the other, she, went laughingly
down the street. It seemed funny to
her to be doing anything useful beyond tlie home garden wall.
Nevertheless she enjoyed hor errand, and as she returned home after
reading most of the afternoon to the
poor, sick giTl, she felt very glad indeed that she had not followed ber
first impulse nnd ignored the request.
As the days and weeks went quickly on, the curate seemed always to
find fresh work for Jean, nnd ench
request came in that peculiar half
pleading nnd hnlf commanding tone.
Ench request wns also always met,
but in the snme haughty, condescending manner, nnd, pleasing to

A remarkable soldier bus just died
nt Budapest in the person of General
Stephen Turr, one of the bravest revolutionary generals that ever lived. He
commenced his military career ns a
lieutenant In the Austrian nrmy. Then
he fought for the Hungarian 'revolutionary government, helped to quell a
German revolution and joined Garibaldi In his groat struggle. On the
outbreak of the Crimean war he served
ns a volunteer In Omnr Pasha's army
against Russia and finally received a
commission In the British transport
service. It wns while buying horses
for the Britisli nrmy at Budapest In
1S55 Hint the general was seized by
the Austrinus us u deserter und sentenced to death. But both the Britisli
nnd French governments made such
emphatic protests against this sentence
that It was commuted to banishment

back 500 yearn, when Herrera, a Span-

of Columbus, saw that "the natives of

In a record published ln Madrid, 1015,
��z are told: "There ls a treo which the

With round, astiy gray leaves. It yields
a milky substance, thick aud gummy,
in great abundance, which ls collected
and allowed to settle In calabashes aud
afterward softened ln hot water or
smeared over the body and rubaed aft
When sufficiently dry."
Even at tbat early date Spaniards
used the Juice of the uie tree to waterproof their clonks.
The first accurate account of these
gum elastic or caoutchouc trees wai
furnished by La Coudaniiue, who was

A riant That Una the Fairer oi P��-
rlfyinic Standlna Water.
There ls a plant growing ln the
southern waters of the United States
which possesses the singular property of being able to render the most impure stnudlng water perfectly healthy.
The people of Louisiana and Mississippi call It the water lotus.
It consists of leaves about the size of
.the head of a pin and roots eo fine ns
to escape notice save under a microscopic inspection. Where it growg_ at
All, It covers tbe water and to the casual observer looks like a coating of
green scum. Tbe flowers and seeds
f,re microscopic, so that its appearance
ln any given locality is not readily bc-
tounted for, but wherever It does appear the water beneath ls always fit
to drink.
So marked is this property thut families using tho water from bayous
where the lotus ls abundant are known
to have better general health than
<hose taking their drinking water from
places where the lotus ls not found. It
Is often transplanted Into ponds, bayous and lnkes, sprends with wonderful rapidity and never falls to do Its
work well.
Bach of the Generals Thona-ht That
the Other Wai Dead.
General Barlow of the Union army
fell wounded and, It was thought, dying during tbe flrst day of the battle of
Gettysburg and within the Confederate
lines. General Gordon, cantering by,
saw bim and recognized him. Dismounting, he approached the prostrate
man and inquired what be could do for
"I am dying," said Barlow.   "Just
reach luto my coat pocket, draw out
thc letter you find there and read it te
me. It ls from my wife."
' Gordon read thc letter.
"Now, general," said Barlow, "please
destroy that letter. I want you to notify her���she is in the town over yonder
���what has happened to me."
"I will," replied Gordon.
He Bent for Mrs. Barlow, giving her
safe conduct through the southern
lines, and then rode away, certain that
Barlow's death was a question of only
a few hours at most.
But Barlow did not die. His wife
came promptly and had him removed
to tho town of Gettysburg, where sbe
nursed him so faithfully that he recovered.
Many years passed until one night
both generalB were guests at a dinner
ln Washington. Some one brought
them together and formally Introduced
them. Time had altered the personal
appearance of both.
"Are you any relation to the General
Barlow who was killed at Gettysburg?" asked Gordon.
"Yes; a very near relation," answered Barlow, with a laugh. "I am
the very man who was killed. But I
have been informed tbat a nvm named
Gordon lost his life ln battle later ou.
He saved my life at Gettysburg. Are
you any kin to that man?"
"I am he," was the reply.
