March 17th,  known  as St.   Patrick's
Day, although not a statute holiday, is
generaliy observed in this  "Oupoat ol
tho Empire," iu a manner befitting the
occasion.   On that day  pieces oi green
ribbon,   emblematical   of the   "Little
Green Isle," are displayed  by  persons
in all walks ol life, while descendants of
"Ould  Oireland"  offer  toasts of good-
fellowship with a "touch of potheen,"
and are the quintessence of hospitality,
forare they not  celebrating tbe anniversary of St.  Patrick tbe apostle, and
patron saint of Ireland,  who  was  born
in the  year 37S and died about 406.
Great acts are credited to the siint and
many Irishmen swear  that   he   controls the destiny ol tho Emerald Isle.
Among  the  residents of Slocan   may
be found many descendants of the "Ould
Sod," and they propose celebrating  the
anniversary of their   patron saint   by
giving a grand, ball  at Slocan on  the
evening  of   the   17th.     Excellent   ar-
angements have bean made, and  tbe
latest popular dance music will ba  rendered   by a competent  orchestra.     A
sumptuous repast will be served about
midnight, and everything will be done
for the accomodation of all who attend
tho affair.   A number of residents of
the lake towns are expected (or tbe occasion and   arrangements hava   been
made for their comfort.   It is a foregone
conclusion that there will be a meny
time in Slocan on the evening in question and no one will make any mistake
in attending it.

rather timidly to surgcat that it's a

Both teams were well backed, and before the game was through they were
somewhat bruised. After five minutes

it up by taking the puck around the
back of the goal ami fooled Tattrie by
passing it in around the post. The first
half ended 2 to 0 in favor of the codfish
The Bean Chasers  then started in to
pull down the score, and after 10  minutes Charbonneau   opened   tlie   score
with a shot from centre ice.   Sanderson

brought the puck down again and again
but was blocked by tbe defence.    Graham got away with the rubber but his
shot was wide.    Just here McCready
woke up and tried a.rush, which almost
ended in a tally, and Hope a minute
later banged one at the Beanery, but
Tattrie saved it and some other  hot
ones.   Carney got away on a bcautifnl
rush, wliich ended in a side shot, and

has paid $000 per acre for a six acre
block. The purchaser was Mr. T. H.
Hoben, the well-known New Denver
merchant, and tho vendor Mr. G.
Williamson. Although the price necessarily appears tall, Mr. Hoben must be
congratulated on bis foresight in securing so splendid a block near town,
which is not only choice in location,
but is aleo in as good condition as
hands of man can make it. The property is well fan*cd,anl about 4>_ acres
are now planted to trees. There ia alta
a one-storey building on the land.
We are glad to see that some of our
citizens are enterprising enoagh to
secure one or two of the "plums" before
the inevitable rise in land value it upon
us. Attention lias been directed to the
fertile land in this vallov to such an extent that the enterprising firm of
Brydges, Blakemore & Cameron has recently installed an office in New Denver
with R. W. Moeran as manager.
It must not be supposed that all first
class land in the district is on the
market at figures approaching those
in the recent turnover. Unimproved
land ol a first-class order is awaiting
settlers ol moderate means, and these
bench lands are peculiarly adapted for
fruit culture, being veritable sun traps.
As all are on a direct line of transportation, fruitgrowers will have none of
those difficulties in marketing their
produce which ranchers in other districts have to contend with. A C.P.R.
steamer makes two trips a day from
one end ol the lake to tha other, and
connection is made by rail with Nelson
for Crow's Nest Pass points from the
eouth, and witb Revelstoke and main
line markets from the north.
To intending settlers in the Koot nay
Fruit Belt wo would add that Bounteous
Sloean has no peer. We desire to make
tbat point as emphatic as possible. Do
not be misled or side-tracked by people
outside of the distiict who have something inferior to offer. While we can
lay no claim to a large acreage in this
valley, there are several thousands of
acres of fruit, pasture and agricultur.il
lands which are the cream of Kootenay.
These should ba visited. All points
along the lake are within easy distances
ol either New Denver, Silverton and
Slocan City, at which places Church,
social and educational privileges prevail. There are no extremes in summer
or winter, and no mosquito pests.
Slocan lake is recognized as tbo moat
charming expanse of water in British
Columbia, and New Denver is bound to
become a fashionable summer resort.

It is not claimed that there is anything new in this article; it is simply
an attempt to state in clear and concise
language a definite system which at
rate has the merit ot producing surely,
and without waste of time, energy in
plant growth, the results aimed at. The
attempt stems to be justified because
this pnrt oi the orchardiat's art has not
often been stated either clearly, concisely or completely, and it is very necessary to have clear and definite ideas
on the subject,
With a clear mental picture of what
ia needed in regards to shaping a tree
the pruning of young trees is a rapid
and sure operation. The tree is pruned
and shaped mentally as the operator
walks towards it. A few deft cuts with
a sharp pair of shears and it is done.
Lacking this clear idea there ie indecision and doubt; the indecision of
the first year produces the puzzle ol
the second year, which tn tbe third
year becomes an insoluble problem, or
one only to be solved in sacrificing half
or more of the tree, and thereby watting
the greater part ol tbe energy of the
growth that the tree has put forth in
tba past.

(Continued From Last Week.)
The summer vacation had oeen spent
by tbo Remingtons and Maddy at the
seaside, the latter coming to the cottage for a week before returning to
her school in New York, and as the
doctor was then absent front* home,
she dil not meet him at all. Consequently, he had not seen her sliice she
left Aikenside for New York. But
she wns at home now for the Christmas holidays���was down at the cottage, too; and .mus*.inlly nervous for
him, the doctor stood before th*. little
square glass in his back office, trying
to make himself look ns well as possible, for he wns going that very afternoon to cull upon Miss Clyde. He
wns glad she W113 not nt Aikenside;
ho would rallier meet her where Guy
wns not. nnd he hoped he might be
fortunate enough to find her alone.
The doctor wns seriously in love.
He acknowledged that now to himself, confessing, too, thnt with his
love was mingled a spice ol jealousy,
lest Guy Remington should be expending more thought on Maddy
Clyde than was consistent with the
promised husband of Lucy Atherstone.
He wished so much to talk with Guy
about her, and yet he dreaded it; for
if the talk should confirm his suspicions there would be no hope for
him. No girl in her right mind would
prefer him to Guy Remington, and
with a little sigh tlie doctor was turning away from the glass, when, aa if
to verify a familiar proverb, Guy himself drove up in a most dashing equipage, the silver-tipped harness of his
high-mettled steed flashing in the
wintry sunlight, and the bright-hued
lining of his fanciful robes presenting
a very gay appearance.
Guy was in the best of spirits. For
an entire half-day he had tried to devise some means for getting Maddy up
to Aikenside. It was quite too bad
for her to spend the whole Vacation
at the cottage, as she seemed likely
to do. He knew she was lonely there;
that the bare floor, and low, dark
walls affected her unpleasantly. He
had** seen that in her face when he
bade her good-by, for he had carried
her down to the cottage himself, and

"Yes, and I beg your pardon for it;
but let me ask you one question, and
upon its answer will depend my future course with regard to Maddy*
You are true to Lucy?"
Guy felt the blood trickling at the
roots of his hair, but he answered
truthfully as he believed:
"Yes, true as steel," while the generous thought came over him that he
would further the doctor's plans all
he possibly could.
"Then I am satisfied," the doctor
rejoined; "and ns you have rather assumed the position of her guardian
or brother, I ask your permission to
offer her the love which, whether she
accepts it or not, is herB."
Guy had never Ielt a sharper pang
than that whicli now thrilled through
every nerve, but he would not prove
false to the friend confiding in him,
and he answered calmly:
"You have my consent; but, doc,
better put it off till you see her at
Aikenside. There's no chance at the
cottage, with those three old people.
I wonder she don't go wild. I'm sure
I should."
Guy was growing rather savage
about something, but the doctor did
not mind *. and grasping his arm as
he arose, he said:
"And you'll manage it lor me, Guy?
You know how. I don't. You'll contrive ior me to see her alone, and
maybe say a word beforehand in my

worth half a million." And Guy tore
himself iwh.v from the doctor,
who, now that the ice was broken,
would like to have talked of Maddy
But Guy was not thus inclined, and
in a mood not extremely amiable, he
threw himself into his sleigh and went
dashing down toward Honedale. For
some unaccountable reason he was not
now one bit interested in the party,
and, were it not that a lew of the
invitations were issued, he would
have been tempted to give it up. Guy
did not know what ailed him. He
only  felt   as   if* somebody   had   been
on the list was the doctor, who, remembering how averse Guy was to
large parties, wondered at the proceedings. But Guy was all engaged
���in the matter, and after telling who
were to be invited, added half indifferently. "I'm going now down to
Honedale alter Maddy. It's better for
her to be with us a day or two before.
You've seen her, of "ourse."
No, the doctor had not; he was
just going there, he said, in a tone
so   full   of  sad   disappointment  that
face, and a little, fat, warm hand
was clasped in his, as Maddy came
even to the gate to meet him.
She was very glad to see him. The
cottage with its humble adornings did
seem lonely, almost dreary, after the
life and bustle ol New York, and
Maddy had cried more than once to
think how hard and wicked she must
be growing when her home had ceased to be the dear old home she once
loved so well. She had been there
five  days  now,  and   notwithstanding
Guy detected "it iTont��,l^^k*TS   _h__ e.f_0,_-8 of he.  g,r_andf!*_ie"_9.Jf_Jen;
anything was the matter.
"Guy,"   the  dnctor  continued,  sitr
ting down by his friend, "I remember once your making me your confidant   about  Lucy,
it,  too?"
"Yes, why? well?" Guy replied, beginning to feel strangely uncomfortable as he half divined what was
coming next.
Latterly Guy had stopped telling
the doctor that be was educating
Maddy for him. Indeed he did not
talk of her at all, and the doctor
might have fancied her out of his
mind but for the frequent visits to
New York which Guy found it absolutely necessary to make. Guy did
not himself understand the state of
his own feelings with regard to Maddy, but if compelled to explain them,
they would hnve been something as
follows*. He fully expected to marry
Lucy Atherstone; the possibility that
he should not had never occurred to
him, but thnt was no reason why
Maddy Clyde need be' married for
these many years. She was very
young yet; there was time enough
for her to think of marrying when
she was twenty-five, and in the meanwhile it would be splendid to have
her at Aikenside as Lucy's and his
friend. Nothing could be nicer, and
Guy did not care to hnve this little
arrangement spoiled. But that the
doctor had an idea of spoiling it, he
had not a doubt, particularly after the
doctor's next reinnrk.
"I have not seen Muddy since last
spring, you Ttnow. Is she very much
"Yes. very much, There is no more
stylish-looking girl to be seen on
Broadway thnn Maddy Clyde," and
Guy shook down his pantaloons a
little awkwardly.
"Wi'li, is she as handsome as she
used to be, and as childish in her
manner?" the doctor asked; and Guy
"I took her to the opera once, last
month, and the many admiring
glances cast at our box proved pretty positively thnt Maddy's beauty
wns not of the ordinary kind."
"The opera!" the doctor exclaimed;
"Maddy Clyde at the opera! What
would her grandfather say? He is
very  puritanical,  you  know."
"Yes, I know! and so is Maddy,
too. She wrote and obtained his consent before she's go with me. He
won't let her go to the theatre."
Here an interval of silence ensued,
and then the doctor began again.
"Guy, you told me once you were
educating Maddy Clyde for me, and I
tried then to make you think I didn't
care; but I did, oh, so much I Guy,
laugh at me, if you please. I cannot
blame you if you do; but the fact is,
I believe I've loved Maddy Clyde ever
since that time she was so sick. At
all events, I love her now. and I was
going down there this very afternoon
to tell her so. She's old enough. She
was sixteen last October, the���the���"
"Tenth day," Guy responded, thus
showing that he, SJoo, was keeping
Maddy's age.
"Yea, the tenth day," resumed the
doctor. "There's 'most eleven yearB'
difference between us, but if she feels
at all as I do, she will not care, Guy,"
and the doctor began to talk earnestly: "I'll be candid with you, and say
that you have sometimes made my
heart ache a little."

tertain her, each day had seemed a
week in its duration. Neither the doctor nor Guy had been near her, and
capricious little Maddy had made her-
You remember | 8e^ believe that the former was sadly remiss in his duty, inasmuch as
he had not seen her for so long. He
had been in the habit of calling every
week, her grandmother said, and this
did not tend to increase her amiability. Why didn't he come now when
he knew she was at home? Didn't
he want to see her? Well, she could
be indifferent, too, and when they
met, Bhe'd show how little she cared!
Maddy was getting to be a woman,
with womanly freaks, as the reader
will readily see. At Guy she was not
particularly piqued. She did not take
his attentions as a matter ol course;
still she thought more of him, if possible, than of the doctor, during those
five days, saying to herself each morning: "He'll surely come to-day," and
to herself each night: "He will be
here to-morrow." She had something
to show him at last���a letter from
Lucy Atherstone, who had gradually
come to be her regular correspondent,
and whom Maddy had learned to love
with all the intensity of her girlhood. To her ardent imagination
Lucy Atherstone was but a little lower than the angels, and the pure,
sweet thoughts contained in every letter were doing almost as much toward molding her character as Grandpa Markham's prayers and constant
teachings. Maddy did not know it,
but it was these letters Irom Lucy
which kept her from loving Guy Remington. She could not for a moment
associate him with herself when she
so constantly thought of him as the
husband of another, and that other
Lucy Atherstone. Not for worlds
would Maddy huve wronged the gentle creature who wrote to her so confidingly of Guy, envying her in that
she could so often see his face and
hear his voice, while his betrothed
waa separated from him by many
thousand miles. Little by little it
had come out that Lucy's mother was
averse to the match, tbat she had in
her mind the case of an English lord
who would make her daughter "My
Lady"; and this was the secret of
her deferring so long her daughter's
marriage. In her last letter to Maddy, however, Lucy had written with
more than her usual spirit that she
would come in possession ol her property on her twenty-fifth birthday.
She should then feel at liberty to act
for herself, and she launched out in*
her o<T*~n*i:"~��r3's. yoit*.r,i**,*, *_Mr'_rre
means to be married in Bpite of her
mother���she says���let me see"���and
drawing from her bosom Lucy's letter, Maddy read, " 'I do not intend to
fail in filial obedience, but I have
tried dear Guy's patience long en-
o.jf-h, and as soon as I can, I shall
marry him.' Isn't it nice?" and returning the letter to its hiding place,
Maddy scooped up in hor hand and
ate some of the snow beside the path.
"Yes, it was very nice," Guy admitted, but there was a shadow on his
brow as he followed Maddy into the
cottage, where the lunatic, who had
been watching them from the window, shook his head doubtfully and
said, "Too young, too young for you,
young man. You can't have our Sunshine, if you want her."
"Hush, Uncle Joseph," Maddy
whispered, softly, taking his arm and
laying it around ber neck. "Mr. Remington don't want me. He is engaged
to an English girl across the sea."
Low as Maddy's words were, Guy
heard them, as well as the crazy man's
reply, "Engagements have been broken."
That wns the first time the possibility had ever entered Guy's brain that
his engagement might be broken, provided he wished it, which he did not,
he said to himself positively. Lucy
loved him, he loved Lucy, and that
was enough, sn in a kind of abstracted manner, arising from the [act that
he was calculating how long it would
he before Lucy was twenty-live, he
began   to   talk   with   Muddy,   asking
how she hnd spent her time, and so
forth. ThiB leininded Maddy of the
loetor, who, she said, had not been
to see ber nt nil.
"He was coining this morning,'
Guy rejoined, "but I persuaded him
to defer his call until yon were at
Aikenside. I hnve come to take you
bnck with me, as we are to have a
party day after to-morrow evening,
and 1 wish you to be present."
A party, a big party, such as Maddy
had never in her life attended! How
her eyes sparkled from mere anticipation as she looked appealingly to
her grandfather, who, though classing
parties with the pomps and vanities
Irom which he would shield his child,
still remembered that he once was
young, that fifty years ago he, too,
like Maddy. wanted "to see the folly
of it," and not tnke the mere word of
older people that in every lestive
scene there was a pitfall, strewn over
so thickly with roses that it was oft-
times hard to tell just where its
boundary line commenced. Besides
that, grandpa had faith in Guy. and
so his consent wns granted, and Mnddy was soon on her way to Aikenside.

before. Jessie was wild with delight
dragging forth at one? the pink dress
which she was to wear, and whispering to Maddy that Guy had bought
a dark blue silk for her, and the*1
Sarah Jones was at that moment fashioning it after n dress left there by
Maddy  the   previous  summer.
"Mother said plain white muslin
was more appropriate lor a young
girl, but Brother Guy snid no; the
blue silk would be useful after the
party; it was whnt you needed, and
so he bought it nnd paid a dollar and
three-quarters a yard, but it's a secret until you are called to try it on.
Isn't Guy splendid?"
He was indeed splendid, Maddy
thought, wondering why he was so
kind to her. and if it would be so when
Lucy came. The dress fitted admirably, only Maddy thought grandpa
would say it wns too low in the neck,
but Sarah overruled her objections,
assisted by Guy. who. when the dress
wns completed nnd tried on lor the
last time, wns called in by Jessie to
see if "Maddy's neck didn't look just
like cheese curd," and if "she should
have a piece sewed on as she suggested " The neck was au lait, Guy
said, laughing at Maddy for blushing so, and saying, when he Baw how
really distressed she seemed, that he
would provide her with something to

doing so. although she several times

Accomplice  of  "Chicago   May
fenced In England.
An echo of the case in which Guer-
in, the escaped convict from Devil'*!
j Island, and "Chicago May" and
her companion Smith figured recently, was heard at the Sussex Assises at Lewes recently, when
a fashionably-attired young man was
sentenced by Mr. Justice Grantham
to five years' penal servitude for stealing a quantity of valuable jewelry
from a private house at Eastbourne.
Prisoner was charged under the
name of Edward Miller, but to the
police of this and other countries he
is known by the name of Ferrari.
Counsel said prisoner waa an Italian, and was a moat notorious criminal. He had been deported Irom
South Africa for shop-breaking, and
landed in this country as an accomplice of the notorious "Chiomgo May"
and the man Smith, who was recently sent to penal servitude for life,
for shooting Guerin.
A Bow street detective told the
court that prisoner had lived with
"Chicago May" and Smith, and had
assisted them in their blackmailing
The judge, in passing sentence, said
he would do his best to prevent England being pestered with such a scoundrel. At the expiration of his sentence Ferrari would be deported to
Since the arrest of "Chicago May"
he has lived something like a life of
cultivated luxury among fashionable
hotel guests (whom he victimized)
and his books (which he read in four
or five languages). He speaks Italian, French. German, Russian, and
English well.
He is a member of a wealthy and
highly-esteemed family in Italy.
When "Smith" met him he had already disgraced his family by clever
thefts, and "Smith" enlisted him as
an accomplice.
A bad blunder over a Turin bank
"job" made it politic for the couple
to dash for safety, aud they made
they way to the South African gold
and diamond fields, not to do any digging, but to carry on systematic and
wholesale robbery of the mines. They
moved from camp to camp, committing daring robberies nightly under
tbe most desperate circumstances.
Drugs were freely used. In the large
towns of South Africa they lived
brief lives of dissipation on the proceeds of their camp robberies.
It was in Kimberley that Ferrari
came to grief over a particularly daring robbery. He broke into an hotel
at the dead of night and attempted
to force the safe unsuccessfully after
an hour's hard work with his tempered tools. He actually ascended to
the bedroom of the proprietor to
search for the keys. Whilst he was
moving stealthily about the landlord's wife awoke. Ferrari dropped
flat on his stomach and held his
breath. The landlord's wife actually
got out of bed and looked out of the
window, and then returned to bed
without having her suspicions aroused. Ferrari lay until she fell asleep
again, and then he continued his
search. He found the keys under the
landlord's pillow, opened the safe,
and got away. The marlc of one of
his tools, however, gave him away,
and he was arrested.
After their next arrest and sentence
they were ordered to be deported to
America, of which country they claimed to be citizens, but they "jumped"
the boat at - Southampton, and after
robbery at an hoted to "make their
fares" went on to London.
Here, in the Regent's park district
they lived in elegant style, and Ferrari indulged his taste in literature
in a splendid library. To this place
they lured the blackmailed victims of
"Chicago May" whom they met in

The experiences of an English householder in India are often amusing. An

"Ob, yes," he said; "be Is quite able

I thought that was much tbe best
way, and then the chemist could give
him what was proper. So I wrote:
"Please give tbe bearer a dose of medicine.   He says he bas fever."
I forgot to inquire abont him Ull two
days after.
"How ls the dlahwasherr 1 said.
"He Is much better, your honor."
"4I1, then he took the physic?"
"No, your highness. The bazaar

"The bazaar cooly P I exclaimed.
'Wbat for?"
"The dishwasher said: "Cooly goes

So tbe cooly took the letter. Shop
mnster prepared physic, then told bazaar cooly to drink it Cooly said:
'Not for me Is the medicine, but for
another man. I take It to hlm.' 'Not

There ls one little lustrument lo
which the Interest of nil classes of
people In this country never diminishes
through all the changing seasons of the
year, from the tin-it day of January to
the last dny of Dei-ember, It regulates
the business pulse of tlie nation nud is
the shrine to wbii'h men of nil occupations turn. And this little Instrument
Is the thermometer, which bears tlie
name of I'lihreuheii.
Before tbe seventeenth century men
could only Judge of tbe amount of heat
prevailing ut an*" place by their per
sonul sensations und could only speak
of the weather iu u very Indefinite
way us hot or very hot. cold or very
cold. Iu that century several attempts
���vere made by scientific experimenters
by means of tubes containing oil. spirits of wine und other substances-to establish u satisfactory means of measuring beat, but none of tbem proved
successful. Even Sir Isaac Newton,
who applied bis greut mind to this
work, nud ulso the noted astronomer.
Hnlley. failed lu their attempts to produce 11 heat measure.
It was reserved to Gabriel Daniel
Fahrenheit, nu obscure and poor man,
u native of Dautzlg, to give to the
world tbe Instrument which bas proved
to be so serviceable to mankind. He
had fulled In business as a merchant
and, having a taste for mechanics und
chemistry, begun a series of experiments for the production of thermometers. At first he made these Instruments with alcohol, but soon became
convinced thut the semisolid mercury
was a more suitable article to use In
the glass tube.
Fahrenheit bud removed from Dunt-
zlg to Amsterdam, and tbere ubout tbe
year 1720 be made the mercury thermometer which bus ever since been
fashioned much like tbe original.
Tbe basis of bis plati was to mark
i>n the tube tbe two points respectively
at which water Is congealed uud boiled
und to graduate the space between
He began with an arbitrary marking,
beginning with 32 degrees, because lie
found that tbe mercury descended 32
degrees more before coming to wbat
he thought tbe extreme cold resulting
from a mixture of Ice, water and sal
ammoniac. In 1724 be published a distinct treatise ou tbe subject of his experiments and tbe conclusions tbat bad
resulted therefrom.
Celsius of Stockholm soon after suggested tbe more rational graduation of
u hundred degrees between freezing
und boiling point. This was tbe centigrade thermometer. Reaumur proposed another graduation which has been
accepted by the French, but by far the
largest port of the civilized world
Fahrenheit's scale has been accepted
and used, with 32 degrees as freezing.
55 degrees as temperate. 00 degrees as
blood heat and 212 degrees as boiling
It ls true that the zero of Fahrenheit's scale ls a solecism since It does
not mark the extreme to wliich heat
can be abstracted. This little blemish,
however, does uot seem to have beeu
of nny practical consequence.
Arctic explorers have persisted In describing temperatures below tbe zero
of Fahrenheit, ond scientists bave produced artificially temperatures far below any ever dreamed of by tbe thermometer maker of Amsterdam. Tbere
Is doubt as to the year of the deatb of
Fahrenheit, but it is generally placed
in 1740.

Effective Cure For an Imposter In an
English   Prison.
Paralysis is often imitated by
beggars and so closely that there ia
no detecting the imposition. A fellow is directed how to hang his
wrist loosely down dropping the
fingers of one hand and to drag the
limbs in such a manner as to imitate
a paralytic stroke to the life. He is
drilled up to the proper business
mark by marching him around the
beggars' kitchen for hours at a stretch
and night after night. This is continued until the patient can bear a
sudden and unexpected prick with a
needle or even- the touch of a redhot
iron without relapsing into his normal
Not many years ago one of these
mock paralytics, who was accustomed
to throw off hia seeming infirmity
and play the burglar by way of a
change, was caught in the very act
of breaking into a house and committed for trial. Here he got up
such a semblance of hopeless paralysis as deceived everybody. When the
trial came on he was carried into
the court on a stretcher and laid at
lull length in the dock. Everybody,
including the judge and jury, commiserated the case, and he escaped
with one year's imprisonment instead
of a long term of penal servitude.
Tiie doctor of the prison ol whinh
the convict was next transferred felt
sure that the whele thing was a sham
and tried all the ordinary methods
of detection, including a liberal use
of the gulvanic battery, but without
effect. At length a great heap of
damp straw was collected in the jail
yard, and the scoundrel, still stretched on his pallet which he never quitr
ted was placed thereon. The straw
wns fired on all aides throwing out
a little flame and denae volumes of
choking smoke. This did the business, and quickly too. In less than
j minute the paralytic astonished
everybody but the doctor by bonne-
ing "ont ol the straw with the agility
ol a deer.
"The game is up!" he exclaimed,
with a laugh, when he had done
coughing, adding in a tone of triumph, "Anyhow, I have cheated the
law out of six years"'
The torture such people inflict on
themselves for weeks and months at
a time and voluntarily is simply incredible.

busily adding to her collection ol
scrap-books during her Btay in Denmark. Most of the Quean's scrap-
books are filled with snapshots taken
hv her self. Many of these she ha.-
developed and printed, but as a rule
she sends the films to a professional
During the past lew montha, how
ever, the Queen haa been collecting
snapshots of herself published by en
terprising London newspapers, and
her sister, the Dowager Empress ol
Russia, with whom she is staying at
the tiny villa which they jointly leased near Copenhagen, looks with envy
on these "tributes" to a Queen who
does not fear anarchists.
In Russia the Dowager Empress
wus rarely snapshotted, simply because any one with a camera in a
crowd would be immediately arrested on suspicion of carrying a bomb_
whereas Queen Alexandra is "taken"
by amateurs nnd professionals alike
a dozen times in the course of a short
public journey.
Queen Alexandra has her little
weaknesses like all women, nnd she
bus scribbled little notes against all
��he newspaper snapshots in her new
scrap books. In several cases she
has written: "Looking my best," in
others, "Very poor snapshot."
Emperor's Hunting Achievements Entirely Outclass Those of Roosevelt.
Among the many trials that President Roosevelt haa had to bear is the
accusation that he resembles the Lm-
peror of Germany. The loudness oi
both for hunting has been pointed out
as an example ol the likemindodnesB
of the President and the Kaiser. Statistics have recently been published
which cast light upon the hunting
achievements of William II. They
make Theodore Roosevelt's occasional
excursions in search of well-deserved
rest and a few grizzly bears seem
Sunday school picnics by comparison.
They put the strenuous occupant ol
the White House forever in the class
of milksops and mollycoddles.
The official statistician to the huntsman Kaiser reports that his Majesty
has bagged a total of 47.5H pieces of
<rnme in a period of thirty years. Over
eighteen thousand pheasants were as-
sosaiii'itod, nnd seventeen thousand
hares were iv't off in their prime. One
can go on down the list of boars,
rabbits, stags, etc., until there seems
to be scarcely a variety of bird or
beast that has escaped the imperial
bullet. The Emperor even invaded
the realms of Neptune, foi we are told
that one lone, solitary whale perished
in supreme honor and agony. On one
short winter's day the Kaiser, unaided, shot 1,053 pheasants.
"Annie   Laurie."
William Douglas whose love ballad,
"Annie Laurie," has become one of
the famous lyrics of the world, wooed, but did not win, Annie Laurie.
The real Annie Laurie gave "her promise true" to Douglas, but wedded
another, a wealthier suitor, Fergus-
son, of Croigdarroch. Douglaa who
was ready to "lay me doon and dee."
went, to the wurs and when he came
back married also and left a goodly
crop of heirs. The tender melody
that has won the hearts of people the
world over was Bet to the words many
years a ter by Lndy John Scott. An-
,nie Laurie wes born Dec. 16. lG*^, at

The Door of Doom
Many old houses in Holland have a
special door which is never opened
save on special occasions���when there
is a marriage or a death in the family.
The bride and bridegroom enter by
this door, and it is then nailed or
barred up until a death occurs, when
it is opened and the body is removed
by this exit.���Reader.
Biliousness Burdens Life.���The bilious man is never a companionable
man because his ailment renders him
morose and gloomy. The complaint
is not so dangerous as it is disagreeable. Yet no one need suffer from it
who can procure Parmelee's Vegetable Pills. By regulating the liver and
obviating the effects of bile in the
���itomach they restore men to cheerfulness and full vigor of action.\
President Manuel Amador of Panama tells this little tale of 11 certain
Cugan   millionaire:
"An unfortunate man once obtained
access to this millionaire and started
to lay before him his woes. He depicted his wretched poverty in most
vivid colors. Indeed, so graphic was
the man's sad story that the millionaire felt himself affected aa lie had
never been before. With tears in his
eyes he summoned his servant and in
a quivering voice snid:
"'John, put this poor fellow out.
He is breaking ray heart.' "���Everybody's.

Superstitions About a Harmless Little)
The shrew, or shrewmpuse, as It Is
commonly called, la fonnd In nearly all
parts of the world. It ls distinguished
by an elongated, pointed muzzle, small
eyes, plantigrade, six toed feet and
glands tbat secrete a musky fluid. Altogether tt closely resembles a mouse,
but It Is really not related to tbe mouse
When at home It Is either under a
pile of rubbish or ln a bole which It
has burrowed In tbe earth. It is nocturnal in Its habits, but perfectly barm-
leas. Yet at one time it was much disliked und persecuted because it was
thought to he a dangerous, miseIvevous
animal. Among the Italians tbe notion
was prevalent that the bi'te of a shrew
was* extremely poisonous. Tbe French
and tbe English believed tbat If a
shrew ran over an animal's foot the
animal felt great pain and eventually
became paralyzed; hence If a horse,
a cow or a gout became a little stiff ln
Its limbs the foolish people at once declared It "shrew struck," and tbe poor
shrews had to suffer ln consequence.
Of course the "shrew struck" animal
had to have something to cure it, so an
ash tree was selected and a deep hole
was bored Into Its trunk. Then a
shrew was captured, put alive Into thn
hole, the hole was securely plugged,
and tbe Innocent little animal waa Ielt
to die of starvation.
The Ignorant helleved that af'��*r
such an act the nsh tree had power to
cure "shrew struck" animals, and
whenever an animal became Inactive
or n little numb In Its limbs Its owner
hurried to the "shrew ash," cut a
switch from It and switched the
���shrew struck" beast. The smarting
roused by tbe switching naturally
made the helpless animal move about
as much as It possibly could, and in 1
���dioct time it was pronounced "cured *
