Tlie breakfast bell had rung twice
while Guy waa holding that interview
with Agnes, and at last Mrs. Noah
came np herself to learn the cause of
the delay; standing in the hull, she
heard a part of what was transpiring
in the parlor. Mrs. Noah was proud
and jealous of her master's dignity,
and once or twice the thought had
crossed ber mind that perhaps when
he came home Maddy would be treated more an some governesses were
treated by their employers, but to
have Agnes take the matter up was
quite a different thinp, nnd Mrs. Noah
smiled with prim satisfaction, ns she
heard Guy issuing orders ns to bow
Miss Clyde should be treated. Standing back to let Apnes pass, she waited
a moment, and then, an if she had
just come up,* presented herself before
Guy, asking if he were ready for
"Yea, call Miss Clyde; tell her I
sent for her," was Guy's anawer, and
forthwith Mrs. Noah repaired to Maddy's room, finding her still sobbing
"I cannot go down," she said; "my
face is all stains, and it's so dreadful,
happening on Sunday, too. What
would grandpa say?"
' "You can wash off the stains,
.Come," Mrs. Noah said, pouring waiter into the bowl, and bidding Maddy
.hurry, "as Mr. Guy was waiting
breakfast for her."
"But I am not to eat with them,"
Maddy began, when Mrs. Noah stopped her by explaining how Guy ruled
that house, and Agnes had been completely routed.
This did not quiet Maddy particularly, and her heart beat painfully as
she descended to the parlor, where
Guy was still walking up and down.
"Come, Miss Clyde, Jessie is nearly
famished," he said pleasantly, as
Maddy appeared, and without the
slightest reference to what had passed he drew Maddy's arm within his
own, and giving a hand to Jessie,
who had just come in, he went to the
breakfast room, where Maddy was
told to preside.
Guy watched her closely witbout
Beeming to do so, mentally deciding
that she was neither vulgar nor awkward. On the contrary, he thought
her very pretty, and very graceful foi
one so unaccustomed to society. Nothing was said of Agnes, who kept her
room the entire day, and did not join
the family until evening, when Guy
sat upon the piazza with Jessie in his
lap, while Maddy was not very far
away. At first there was much constraint between Agnes and Maddy,
but with Guy to manage, it soon
wore away, and Agnes felt herself exceedingly amiable when she reflected
how gracious she had been to **ier
But Maddy could not so soon forget. All through the day the conviction had been settling upon her that
she could not stay at Aikenside, and
so on the following morning, just
after breakfast was over, she summoned courage to ask Mr. Guy if she
might talk with bim. Leading the way
to the library, he bade her sit down,
while he took the chair opposite, and
then waited for her to commence.
Maddy was afraid of Guy. He did
not seem quite like Dr. Holbrook. He
was haughtier in his appearance,
while his rather elaborate style of
dress and polished manners gave him,
in her estimation. a kind of superiority
over all the men she hnd ever met.
Besides that, she remembered how
hiB dark eyes lind flashed when she
told him what she did tbe previous
day, and also thnt she had said to
his face that she hated him. She could
not bear to leave a bad impression on
his mind, so the first words she said
to him were:
'Mr. Remington, I can't stay here
after all that haa happened. It would
amererrt. wny, m tne name or'vfcrn-
der, are you two not married, if you
are ever going going to be?"
"Jealous, as 1 live'" and Guy's
hand came down playfully on the
doctor's shoulder. "I did not suppose
you had got es far as that. You are
afraid of the effect it may have on me
teaching a sweel-faced little girl how
to conjugate amo; and to cover up
your own interest, you bring Lucy
forward as an argument. Eh, Hal,
have I not probed the secret?"
Th" doctor was in no mood for joking, and only smiled gloomily, while
Guy continued:
"Honestly, doctor, I am doing it
lor you. I imagine you fnncy ber, as
well you may. She'll make a splendid
woman, but she needs educating, of
course, and I am going to do it. You
ought to thank me. instead of looking
so like a thundercloud," and Guy
lai"*'*ed   merrily.
The doctor was ashamed of his
mon-l and could not tell what, prompted Mm to answer
"I am obliged to you, Guy; but,
as far ns I am concerned, you mny
spare yourself the trouble. If my wife
nH< educating. I can do it myself."
Guy was puzzled. Could it be that,
aft"- all, he was deceived, and the
doctor did not enre for Maddy? It
mil-lit be, and be hastened to change
the conversation to another topic than
M * ''y Clyde. The doctor stayed to
dinner, end as Guy watched him
closely, he made up his mind that he
did care for Mnddy Clyde, and this
confirmed him in his plan of educating her for him.
Magnanimous Guy! He felt himself
very good, very generous, very condescending, and very forgiving, the
early portion ot the afternoon; but
later in tbe day he began to view
Guy Remington in tbe light of a
martyr, said martyrdom consisting in
the scornful toss of the head with
which Agnes had listened to hia plan,
an'' "*" 'Den opposition of Mi* Noah.
"Was he beside himself, or what?"
this worthy asked. "Sbe liked Maddy
Clyde, to be sure, but it wasn't for
niiii tn demean himself by turning
her schoolmaster. Folks would talk
awfully, and she couldn't blame 'em;
besides, what would l.ncy sny to his
bein' nlone in n room with n girl as
pretty as Mnddy'' It waa a duty he
owed he*   at nnv rate, to tell her about
it, nnd if she said  'twas right, why,
eo it."
Thi** -tip drift of Mrs. Noah's
remarks, nnd ns Guy depended much
on her judgment, he decided to write
to LllOY to see if she bnd the slightest objections to his teaching Maddy
Clyde. Aecorjinsrly, he wrote that
verv ���'-���*_, telling her frankly nil
he knew concerning Maddy Clyde,
end narrating tbe circumstances under w-bieb he first had met her, be-
in" careful also to repent wbat he
know would hnve weight with an
English girl like Lucy, to wit, that
though poor, Maddy's father nnd
Trnndfnther Clyde had been gentlemen, the one a clergyman, the other
a "ii enptain. Then he told of her desire for lenrnine. and his plan to
teach her himself, of what the doctor
and   Mrs.   Noah   bnd   said   about   it,
not be pleasant for me or Mrs. Agnes
so I am going home, but I want you
to forget what I aaid about hating
you yesterday. I did not then know
who you were. I don't hate you. I like
you, and I want you to like me."
She did not look at him, for her
eyelids were cast down, and her lashes were wet with tears she could
scarcely keep from shedding. Guy had
never known much about girls of
Maddy's age, and there was something extremely fascinating in the
artless simplicity of this half child,
half woman, aittng there before him
nnd asking him so demurely to like
her. She was very pretty, he thought
and with proper culture would make
a beautiful woman. Then, as he re
membered his nvowed intention of
urging the doctor lo make her his
wife some dny. the idea flashed upon
him thnt it would be very generous,
very magnanimous in him to educate
that yo"ne girl expressly for the doctor, nnd tboueb be hardly seemed to
wait nt all ere renlying to Mnddy, he
had in the h'ief interval formed a
skeleton plan, nnd seen it in all its
benrinps nnd tri"*'i.>hnl result.
"I nm much ob'iced for your liking
me," be snid. a little mischievously.
"You surely hnve not much reason
so to do when vou recall the incidents
of our first interview. Maddy���Miss
Clyde���I bave come to the conclusion that I knew less than you did,
end I beg your pardon for annoying
you so terribly."
Then, briefly. Guy explained to her
how it all happened, blaming himself
���far more than be did the doctor, who,
he said, had repented bitterly.
"Had you died, Miss Clyde, when
you were so sick, I half believe he
would have felt it liis duty to die also. He likes you very much; more
'indeed than any patient I ever knew
him to have," and Guy's eyes glanced curiously nt Maddy to witness the
effect his words might have upon her.
But Maddy merely answered:
"Yes, I think he does like me, and
I know I like him."
Mentally chiding himself for trying
to find in Maddy's head an idea
which evidently never was there, he
began to speak of her proposition to
leave, saying he should not suffer it,
Jessie needed her and she must stay.
P'"> was not to mind the disagreeable
things Mrs. Remington had said. She
was tired and nervous, and so gave
way to some very preposterous no-
ti-ios, which she had picked up somewhere. She would treat Maddy better
hereafter, and she must stay. It was
jp'ensanter for Jessie to have a com-
*ti--"'n" sn nenr ber own age. Then,
ft0 ,he_.__iw si_*_.c of y'"'Jing in  Mad
dy's*fiUse, ne'continued:
"How would you like to turn scholar for a short time each day, I being
your teacher? Time often hangs heavily upon my hands, and I fancy the
novelty of the thing would suit me.
I have books. I will appoint your lessons nnd the hour for recitation."
Guy's face was scarlet hy the time
he had finished speaking, for suddenly he remembered to huve heard or
read of a similar instance which resulted in the marriage of the teacher
and pupil; besides that, it would subject him to so much remark, when it
was known that he, the fashionable
nnd fastidious Guy, was teaching a
pretty, attractive girl like Maddy
Clyde, and he sincerely hoped she
WAi'lfl d-K.1.*-.**. Pit Maddy had no
such intention. With her beautiful
eves full of tears, which shone like
diamonds, ns she lifted them to Guy's
face, she said : ,
"Oh, I thank you so much. You
could not make me happier, and I'll
t so hard to learn. Tbey don't teach
such things at the district school;
nnd when there was a high school in
Honedale I could not go, for it was

at home. It's dreadful to be poor, but,
perhaps I shall some time be competent to teach in a seminary, and
won't that be grand? When may I
Guy ..ad never met with so much
frankness and simplicity in anyone,
unless it were Lucy Atherstone, of
whom Maddy reminded him somewhat, except that the latter was more
practical, more���he hardly knew
wbat���only tbere was a difference, and
a thought crossed his mind that if
Maddy had all Lucy's advantages,
and wns na old, she would be what
the world calls smarter. There was
no disparagement to Lucy in his
thoughts, only a compliment to Mad-
d* who was wnitinc for him to answer ber nuestion. There was no retracting now; be had offered bis services; she bad accented: nnd with a
mental comw-t "I dread doc's fun
tbe most, so I'll explain to bim how
] nm r li-.enH.n-r* her for the future
Mrs. Dr.  Holbrook." he replied:
"As soon as I am rested from my
journey, or  sooner,  if you  like;  aim
n*T 'ell me, please, who is this Uncle
Joseph of whom you speak?"
He remembered what the doctor
hnd -aid of a crazy uncle, but wishing to hear Maddy's version of it, put
to her the question he did.
"Uncle Joseph is grandma's youngest brother," Maddy answered, "and
he has been in the lunatic asylum
for years. As long as his little property lasted, his bills were paid, but
now they keep him from charity, only
grandpa helps all he can, and buys
some little nice things wliich he wants
so badly, and sometimes cries for,
they say. I picked berries all last
summer, nnd sold them to buy him a
thin coat and pants. We should have
n*"��� to spend than we do, if it were
no* fo*- Tncle Joseph." and Maddy's
face wore a thoughtful expression as
she recalled all the shifts and turns
she'd seen made at home that the
poor maniac might be more comfortable.
"Whnt i**iH�� him crazy?" Guy asked, and nfter a moment's hesitancy
Maddy replied:
""I don't believe _*rnT��dma would
mind telling you, though she don't
talk about it much. I only knew it a
little while ago. He was disappointed
once. He loved a girl very much, and
she made him think that she loved
him. Sbe was many years younger
than Uncle Joseph���about my age at
first���and when she grew up she said
she was sick of him because he was
so much older. He wouldn't have felt
so badly, if she bnd not gone straight
off and married a rich man who was
a great deal older than even Uncle
Joseph; that was the hardest part,
and he grew crazy at once. It has
been so long that he never can ba-,
helped, and sometimes grandma talks
of bringing him home, ns he is perfectly
harmless. I suppose it's wicked, but
I must hope she won't, for it would
be terrible to live with n crazy man,"
and a chill crept over Maddy, as if
there had fallen upon her a foreshadowing of what might yet be. "Mr.
Remington," she continued suddenly,
"if you tench nie, I can't, of course,
expect three dollars a week. It would
not be right."
"Perfectly right." he nnswered.
"Your services to Jessie will be worth
just as much as ever, so give yourself
no trouble on thnt score."
He was tbe best man that ever lived. Mnddy thought, and so she told
the doctor thai afternoon when, as
he rode up to Aikenside, she met bim
nut on the lawn before he reached the

How he wished lhnt she was tbere
now ns Mrs. Guy. nnd he must tell
Guy so that very day. Seated in Guy's
lib-arv, the opportunity soon occurred, Guy approaching the subject himself by saying:
"Guess, Hal, what crazy project I
hnve just embarked in."
"I know without guessing; Maddy
told me," and the doctor's eyebrows
were elevated just a little, as he crossed his feet upon the window sill and
moved his chair so as to have a better view of Maddy and Jessie romping in the grass.
"And so you don't approve?" was
Guy's next remark, to which the doctor replied:
"Why, yes; it's a grand thing for
her, providing you know enough to
teach her; but, Guy, this is a confounded gossiping neighborhood, and
folks will talk, I'm afraid."
"Talk about what!" and Guy bridled up ns his independent spirit began to rise. "What harm is there in
my doing a generous act to. a poor
girl like Maddy Clyde? Isn't she
graceful aa a kitten, though?" and
Guy nodded toward the spot where
she was playing.
It annoyed the doctor to have Guy
praise Maddy, but he would not show
it, and answered:
"It's all right in you, but just he-
cause the poor girl is Maddy Clyde,
folks will talk. She is too handsome,   _,._,. ._ ������������,���.   ������j

"The Bonnie Brier Bush," the play
of all plays dear to the hearts of the
Canadian people, is a dramatization
by James MacArthur, of the late Ian
Maclaren's story of the same name,
and it depicts life in the land whose
lochs and heathery hills inspired the
great song poet, Robert Burns. If
in his not very long but useful life,
Ian Maclaren, or the Rev. John Watson, which was his real name, had
given the world nothing but "The
Bonnie Brier Bush," his life would
not have been lived in vain. To
those who follow the stage closely
the play stands out like a light house
in the sea of uninteresting stage
stories. It is distinctly a play of heart
interest, while the comedy is abundant, wholesome and natural.
The enterprise of Manager Walker
in securing "The Bonnie Brier Bush"
for a Western Canada tour will be
appreciated by all lovers of the best
in drama.

Royal Statues Sold.
It is curious to think that the finest London statue���that of Charles I.
at Charing Crosa��� was once sold by
the Puritans to John Rivet for old
metal. The wortbv brazier, says T.P.'s
Weekly, drove a brisk trade in brass-
handled knives and forks, which he
sold to Cavaliers ami Roundheads
alike as being made of the broken-up
statue, which meanwhile was safely
hidden in his back yard. At the Restoration it was exhumed and erected
on its present site, its pedestal hav
ing been designed by Grinling Gibbons. The next Stuurt statue set up
in London wns imported from abroad
by Robert Viner. a London goldsmith,
who in the rapture of having been
paid a debt owed him by Charles II.,
resolved to do bis Majesty this honor
���cheap. He commissioned ono of his
foreign correspondents to buy a statue of anyone tint waa going cheap,
and ns thnt of John Sooieski, King
of Poland, was then in the market,
it was procured nnd despatched. So-
hieski, in white mnrble, was represented���in commemoration of his victory over the Turks���on horseback
and trampling on n prostrate Mussel-
man. A few touches of the chisel
changed the Polish king into an unrecognizable likeness of the English
monarch, while tbe prostrate Mussulman was similarly transfigured to represent Cr-imwell���in a turban!

Pronounced More Hardy Than  Manitoba Product���Easy to Raise.
A discovery that may ultimately revolutionize farming is announced by
a group of Cambridge scientists. Oare-
I iul experiments have been made during the last eight years in testing
and crossing tne qualities both of
plant*-: and animals. The immediate
result of the Cambridge experiments
has beeu to sreate varieties of wheat
and bariey which will surpass the
quality even of Manitoba hard grain
and increase the value of English
grain by 10 per cent, or more.
Prof. Middleton, Prof. Wood, and
Mr. B. H. Biffen during the last eight
years huve been conducting the experiments at the Cambridge University experimental farm at Impington.
AH tbe known varieties of wheat
throughout the world were collected
together and grown on a small scale.
As was only to be expected, the majority absolutely refused to be acclimatized, but a lew showed a disposition to be kinder. Eventually a few
hopeful varieties were selected for
such characteristics as resistance to
the attacks of rust, good cropping capacity, fine milling quality, stii'f straw,
and such like, und were crossed with
British wheats with the idea of combining ull these good qualities in one
variety. By the careful application
of the' recently discovered Mendelian
laws a number of new varieties have
been produced and have been "fixed."
Passing through various trials, tliey
were eventually submitted to the
tests of milling und baking, with the
most  satisfactory   results.
The department is meeting with
similar success in an attempt to breed
wheats which shall be resistant to
the uttacks of the deadly yellow rust,
and barleys which shall be a great
improvement on those at present
grown in this country.
Possibly the most fascinating of the
experiments is at present in its infancy. It is being tried upon sheep,
the object b^ing tbe improvement of
the wool and carcase, or other characteristics with u monetary value.
The experiments so far go to establish that Mendel's laws apply to animals as well as plants, and that similar results m*iy hi expected from similar experiments.
Public   Protest   Against   Execution   of
Man Wbo Shot Gamekeeper.
The greatest indignation prevails in
the parish of North Baddesley, England, and the surrounding Hampshire
districts on account of a scandalous
development which hus taken place
iu connection with the tombstone
erected in memory' of Charles Smith,
who was hanged in 1��22 for "attempted  murder."
The fate of Smith, who, with the
object of escaping arrest, shot at and
wounded in the leg, but did not kill,
a gamekeeper, deeply moved the public, and a tombstone recording the
circumstances o: his martyrdom to
the game laws w.s subscribed for and
erected in Nortli Baddesley churchyard. The late Lord Visnount Pal-
inerston, whose gamekeeper Smith
had wounded, was greatly nettled at
this, and did his utmost to have the
stone removed, but failed. Since
then it has remained a permanent
record of the stigma he incurred, for
although nt that time Prime Minister
of England, and professing to be in
favor of abolishing capital punishment, he declined to raise his voice
against the execution of Smith.
Now an astounding attempt to vindicate him .has occurred. Alongside
the tombstone erected by public subscription to Smith, another has just
been placed.
It bears an inscription, the object of
whicli is to alienate the sympathy
which tlie original tombstone is bound
to create. The greatest resentment
has been aroused in the locality, and
much surprise felt that it should be
possible for the consecrated ground of
a parish c!_Krehyard to be used for
such a purpose. A petition has been
framed with the object of having the
new tombstone  removed.
Significance is attached to the initials "E.A.," which appear on the
new stone. Broadlands Park, the
seat of the late Lord Viscount Pal-
merston. is now held by his descendant, Bight Hon. Evelyn Ashley.

Talking of forgeries, in the days
long ago, Mr. Henry Ltibouchere,
M P., although born of financial
stock, managed his banking affairs
on peculiar principles. In the first
place he never kept any record of
wbat balance he had at the bank, and
in the second, he invariably refused
t. use official check forms; "thereby," he pointed out, "practicing
strict economy. If my creditor wants
his money, let him put a penny stamp
on iny piece of paper; if he doesn't,
let  him  put it in  the  fire."
Well, one day it was discovered
that forged checks purporting to be
signed by "Lubby" had been honored
by the b'i*ik to the tune oi over $100,-
000. At first the bank tried to make
out that their customer was liable because their authorized check forma
bad not been used, but this theory
the member for Northampton laughed to scorn. However, at the earnest
request of the manager, be agreed to
look again very carefully through the
pile of forged documents. At the conclusion of the inspection the manager
asked anxiously: "Are you certain
that you did not sign any of those
"No," replied Labby, "I could not
take my oath on that point with regard to all."
The manager's face brightened.
Thousands of pounds were at stake;
many of the forgeries were for large
"Which," he tasked, "are you uncertain about?"
Labby paused for a moment, and
then abstracting two checks, one for
Jin and the other for $7.50, he added
"I should not like to swear that
theBe were not my signatures." The
manager nearly  fainted.

with this dread that something is

An Emperor Who Must Die Standing
The Emperor of Austria during his
illness has insisted on transacting
State business as usual. As soon as
he left the nursery he began a course
of training to fit himself for the high
position he was to fill. At sixteen
he was an accomplished linguist and
a scientific expert of no mean degree. He could ride and hunt with
the tireless energy of a hardy sportsman, and his studies in literature
and jurisprudence were conducted
under the most celebrated scholars
of Continental Europe. That such a
course of training did not react upon his health is doubtless due to his
remarkable memory, which even now
is said to enable him., to recall the
face of the humblest of his subjects
no mutter bow long the lapse of time.
It is a tradition of the Austrian royal
house that no Emperor must die lying down. He must stand up to receive the last dread messenger.���

Crew   of   Fishing   Schooner   Rescued
Just In Time.
The John Currier, a wooden, full-
rigged ship of 3,000 tons, was built
on the Atlantic coast about twenty
years ago. She frequently called at
Honolulu, and was one of the best
wind-jammers flying the American
flag. On one occasion she made the
run between Newcastle, New South
Wales, Australia and Honolulu in the
remarkably fast time of thirty days,
which is the record for sailing vessels, about double the time taken by
steamers. On Aug. 9 this year the
John Currier went ashore on a deBO-
late and barren coast of the Behring
Sea. She was commanded by Capt.
P S. Murchison of Point Prim, Prince
Edward Island, and his wife and live
children were with him at the time.
The vessel was owned by a California
shipping company, and was chartered for the fishing season by the Alaska Fishermen Packing Co. She left
Bristol Bay Aug. 5, after a successful
fishing season, bound for Astoria,
having on board besides the captain
and his family 240 white and Chinese
fishermen. The ship went to pieces
in Nelson's lagoon, near the Aleutian
Islands, and while all on board were
saved, the supply of provisions obtained from the wreck promised to
last only until Oct. 1.
This report was brought by two of
the survivors, who, witli Indian
guides, mude u perilous trip over the
mountains to Valdez, a distance of
700 miles. At first it was believed
thut the revenue cutter Manning had
gone to the assistance of the Currier,
but later it was found that she had
not done so. Then it was announced
that the underwriters, M. C. Harrison
& Co. of San Francisco, had sent a
steamer north. Later the underwriters received a telegram stating that
the steamer had reached the lagoon,
but making no reference to rescuing
the passengers and crew of the Currier.
Finally Mrs. A. W. Doyle of San
Francisco appealed to President
Roosevelt to send help to her sister,
the wife of Capt. Murchison, and also
a native of Prince Edward Island
She urged the President to despatch
a revenue cutter to Nelson's lagoon
at once and bring the shipwrecked
party out before navigation closed
on account of the ice. Simultaneously
with Mrs, Doyle's request for help
Senator Perkins telegraphed the Secretary of the Treasury, asking that
a revenue cutter be sent to the relief
of the shipwrecked people.
In response to these appeals Capt.
Munger, commander of the Behring
Sea fleet ot revenue cutters, was ordered by'the Secretary of the Navy
Department to send aid at once. He
accordingly despatched the cutter McCulloch, which took off the marooned
people and transferred them to the
cutter Thetis, which landed the party
in Seattle. They were rescued just in
the "nick of time," as the food sup
ply of the Currier was very low, and
the barren region on which they were
stranded afforded practically no sustenance
Transformation to  Island of Bogoslof
Result of Volcanic Action.
The remarkable transformation that
has occurred in the topography of
Bogoslof Island, Alaska, as the result
of volcanic disturbances, is described
in a report received at the Treasury
Department from Lieut. H. B. Gam-
den, commanding the revenue cutter
McCulloch. Regarding the subsidence
o< McCulloch peak, the report says
that the peak had entirely disappear*
ed, und that astonishing changes occurred in the profiles in the neighboring peaks, whose outlines "had been
softened to a general symmetry by a
padding of luvn dust that almost disguised them beyond recognition, while
the sand-spit connecting the peaks
had attained a height varying from
20 to 100 feet.
"Incalculable tons of material, hur.
dreds of feet in depth, had been de
posited over the entire island. Fire
Island and Perry Peak now towered
into the air with a gentle incline rising from t"..e beach several hundred
yards distant to their summits."
Lieut. Camden says McCulloch Peak
blew up a few hours before the fall
of lava dust at Alaska. Sept. 1 last,
about the origin of which there has
been much discussion. He adds there
i. little doubt that the deposit of
lava dust which has covered Mount
Mnkush and surrounding mountains,
believed from Bogoslof Island, when
the McCulloch Peak explosion occurred.

Pensions For Teachers.
Thc St. John School Teachers' Association recently adopted a pension
scheme to submit to the Provincial
Government. Tbey suggest a pension
of $400 for males and .250 for females,
who have reached sixty years of age,
and have taught thirty years. Those
who have taught twenty years or more
and are then incapacitated, may prove
their case before the Government and
receive a pension of as many thirtieths of the full pension as they have
years of service. Teachers of grammar, superiors and holders of first
and second-class licenses only are to
be entitled to the pension. The teach
ers of the province will be asked to
co-operate in asking tbe Government
to adopt the plan and establish and
nay the p ��� *''*ris.
"The Dev.l Is Dead."
Two of the young friends of Bishop
Wilberforce of Oxford, gave the authorities of the university so much trouble that they won the nicknames oi
Hophni and Phineas.
One day, says Mr. T. H. S. Escott,
in "Society in the Country House,"
they were lounging about the hall at
Cupdesdon Palace, singing the Lutheran refrain, "The devil is dead,"
when the bishop suddenly appeared.
He walked very gently up t*o* them,
and in his most caressing manner
placing one hand on each head, said
in a consolatory tone:

The Growth of Trees in Manitoba
Some figures compiled by the Forestry Branch of the. Department of
the Interior gives some interesting
information as to the growth which
may be expected from hardwood, or
broad-leaved forests in Southern Manitoba. In an article by Mr. Roland
D. Craig, F. E., Inspector of Forest
Reserves, published in the Canadian
Forestry Journal, a table is given
showing the average height and average diameter at breast height (i. e.,
at four and a half feet above the
ground) of trees in the Turtle Mountain Forest Reserve. The figures run
is follows:
At age nf
10 vis. diameter IV, in., height 13}_ ft
20 yrs,     " .'! 1-5   in.,     "   28     ft
30 vis,     " 4 7-10 in.,     "    3S     ft
10 yrs,     "        G in.,      "    40>_   ft
50 vis.     " 7 1-5   in.,     "   61     ft
80 vis,     " 8 7-10 in.,     "   54     ft
70 vis. " 10 1-10 in.. " 56X ft
50 yrs.     "       11 1-10 in.,     "   58     ft
The table quoted above also gives
the amount of wood wliich may be
expected to have been formed on
these trees at the end of the same
periods as above. The figures follow:
At age of
10 yrs, 4 cords wood per acre per year
20 yrs, 22 cords wood per acre per year
IP yrs, 32 cords wood per acre per year
10 yrs, 41 cords wood per acre per year
50 yrs, 47 cords wood per acre per year
(0 yrs, 52 cords wood per acre per year
i"0 yrs, 55 cords wood per acre per year
'0 yrs, 58 cords wood per acre per year
From a consideration of the above
"igures it is obvious that the best
period to cut the timber would be at
the age of forty to fifty years, when
.ordwood of good size would have
been produced, and before the yield
would have fallen off, as it subse-
.equently does. Thus the reserve
would produce an average of a cord
if wood per acre per year; and one
dollar per cord on the stump does not,
it present prices, seem an excessive
price to ask for the timber. Thus
the 55,000 acres of forest on the reserve would produce an annual revenue of $55,000 per year.

Encouraging the Lawyer
A North Carolina lawyer says that
when Judge Buxton of that State,
made his first appearance at the Bar
as a young lawyer he was given
charge, by the State's solicitor, of the
prosecution of a man charged with
It soon appeared that there wns
no evidence against the man, but
Buxton did his best, and was surprised when the jury brought in a verdict
of  "guilty."
After the trial one of tho jurors tapped the young attorney on the shoulder. "Buxton," said he, "we didn't
think the feller was guilty, but, at the
same time, did not like to discourage
a young lawyer by acquitting him."
