Medical Man  Has 'lheory Which He
Will Back Up With Money and
Work to Prove.
The happiest man in town to day is
" Doc." VY, E. t'oniin, for be has closed
n deal which lie firmly believes is but
the first chapter in lhe biltory of a
(���rent mice. For some months past, the
genial medico has been burning tlie
midnight oil in applying science to local
conditions in mining, and while we are
not at   liberty   at    this    stage   of   the
modi al man's deliberations to publish
his theory, Ins investigations thus far
have convinced the most sceptical of the
merit of his leasouiegs, and to-day lie
lias many converts to lib) startling but
simple theoiy, Believing that the ore
j run*!  in  zone*), he  first cist around to
secure 0110 or more claims to put hi"
deduction* to a pr�� tical test. Mis
eholcti (ell on iho Day ton group of five
-claims upon tlie Payne hill, and lie
secured  the   necessary  option   utter   a
brief delay, The most Interesting feat-
lire to the local c-perU thus far is that
the doctor has " nude goo I" in all his
assertions, Tlie severe ciltlclsrns of
I    , pessimists he hat treated as jocular and
���   ' he grew more confident, and cnthus'tas
tie us lie proceeded lie said lie would
strike the ledge at a liven numb'i* of
lee',���he struck it. liefore he set n
foot on the property lie vowed he could
cut ihe ledge r.t any point lie had manted on his diagrams. To our own It now*
le 'ge his startling deductions proved
minutely accurate, Then, again, Ids
assertion that the owners hid cut
through the ledge will,ont beii g aware
ot" it I .nghed a', but he  drifted on
this edge for 311 foot, an I its as fine a
looklllg lead as*oue might ho| e to see.
Tlie work liitlnr'o douo by the Sonet n Mining and Milling Company consists ol between 000 and 7(0 feit of tunneling aid a considerable amount ef
surface work. The tunnel was started
in'orc, hut not much was taken out.
The ledge which it is assorted was cut
through is al) ut 175 feet from the
portal. The lessee snys he will tap tbe
paystrenk at a distanco of JO feet f om
tin* point he has roache 1 in lhe drift.
<)'*ing to the legal incompleteness of
the agreement be was working under
lie ceased mining opcrat:ons until he
S' cured abso'ute control of the ground.
To close up the deal Messrs. A..I.
Duncan and Itobt. Russell, representing tiie Sandon Mining and Muling Co ,
arrived in town mi Monday last from
Spokane, and a bond on the above
group has been tnken by Dr. Gomm.
The purchase price is fixed at (:!0,000,
an 1 toe lessee thinks it is the client est
b ly in the history of the Slocan. Work
wordi $2,000 will have to be performed
etch year during tlie life of the bind,
und tlie lessee also agrees to pay a
royalty of 1.5 per cent, on ore mined,
the same t) apply on the ptirchato
The Dayton group, 1 otter known locally rs the Ya-Ya, is situati d about n
mile and a half from Sandon, and tbe
portal of the tunnel is within five f ot
of the K. & H. Railway lines. In this
instance the lessee is unusually favored with poition, and if his enthusiasm
and perseverance are rewarded as they
deserve to be, be will be shipping ore al
the lowest late for transportation in lhe
division. The lessee has resumed operations again on theoretical and practi
Citl lines, and he f> cl ��� p skive tint lhe
ultimate result will accord wilh bis
theoretical investigations,
Since writing lhe above,  the lessee
ha* tapped a payslretik  of three to four
inchesof good shipping ore.

To commemorate the Birth anniversary of the Methodist church in Sandon
a very pleasing and profitable func ion
took place in the basement of the
Methodist Church on Monday evening
hist. The many friends were entertained
by a 'east of good things which appealed
not only lo the physical but the mental
side of tlie assembly, f-onns, readings
and other selections wore sandwiched in
between the three portions of the mnin
address of tlie evening, which was given
hy the Hev. I!, N. Powell, the popular
Methodist preacher of Nelson. His subject was *'Peof le I Have Met," and
many of the incidents which wcebona-
fide expo'ionccs from real life, were not
only nmu��lng, but, instructive, as the
UndeS'rablo character was held up in
contrast to Hie desirable character of
those who wc'O blessed in hlcs-ing
After the entertainment Rev Powell
made an appeal for funds ti clear off
the Bin di existing debt on the church,
Of tho $170.00 debt at tlie beginning of
the present year enough had been bc-
unrod to lower the debt to %\ 15.00, and
Mr. Powell t-tartcil out valiantly lo
raise lliis by asking for subscriptions
of $10.00. Several were secured and
then subscriptions of $5.00 wore sol lei to'.
Then the plate, or rather the hat, was
passed, and $17.50 was secured in the
collection. This, as was announced,
leaves the debt now standing at about
$35.00, and this it is confidentially expected will be easily wiped off before
next May.
Win. Cliffe Fang " Marg.icrile " with
very acceptable taste, and was warmly
cheered, Mrs. W. O. Robinson de
lighted her audience with "The Fairies.1
Geo. T. Moir sang *' Tlie Maid of the
Mill" in goo I voice. Mrs. Robinson
and I!cv. F. J. Rutherford sang a duet
"Hope Beyond" in very pleasing manner, both were heartily applauded.
Richard Clement's song, "Committed
to lhe Deep" was well received. This
gentleman is the possessor of a go d,
strmg, deep bass voice, and we hope to
hear from him again. Mrs. F. J. Ktith-
erford surprised and delighted Iho audience with her reading in a rich Irish
brogue, " Mrs. Casey's distribution."
Mrs. 0. V. White acted as accompanist in her usual capable manner.
Then the ample provi ion made by
the Ladies Aid of the church was partaken of by the assembled company and
a real pleasant evening was brought to
a cl "So by a solo by tho rditor of our
popular paper, (he "Slocan Mining
Review," and then iie and hi" son Will,
gave a   duel,: "Larboard     Wach."
The chairman, the Rev. W. G.
Brown, asked all to Btand and sing the
dnxology and the meeting was closed by
Rev. K. N. Powell pronouncing the benediction. Everyone went home
pleased with tlie success of the meeting
and saying such evenings might very
well-come a good deal oftener.

"It was about that time, then, that
you understood what others had long
long aware of���that is, that M. d'Ancel was In love with your sister und
desired to marry her?"
"Yes, Monsieur."
"In that case, would it not have
been more simple to have had a frank
explanation with Mine. d'Ancel? Did
you not fear to compromise your
reputation by giving a rendezvous to ;
a young man who was supposed to be j
your fiance?" .
Marthe's face turned a trifle paler.
After a silence that seemed an eler
nlty, she replied, wilh a great effort:
"I had grave and personal reasons
to act as I did. You must realize Monsieur, that In declaring thnt I gave a
secret rendezvous, knowing the interpretation that might he placed on this
meeting, I am not doing an Indifferent
thing���that I suffer. It seems to me
1 might well bo believed!"
For the first time her calmness was
visibly troubled, there was a tremor
in her voice, like a suppressed cry of
torture and anguish. A sympathizing
murmur arose from the crowd.
"Do you not see, Mademoiselle, that
this half avowal gives a terrible likelihood to the hypothesis mentioned a
few moments ago? To many women,
a falsehood under such circumstances
is not only excusable hut heroic."
"And yet," cried the poor girl, "I
have not lied!"
"Admit that you are telling the
truth. What time did you go into the

"All these details seem well fixed in

"They are indeed!"
"No one saw you going out or coming In?"
"No one."
"It is a pity, Mademoiselle, a great
pity. I need not tell you how respected and honored you are personally by
all who know you, and I assure you
that your testimony will have weight

"Then," cried Marthe, in a vibrating voice, "then, the accusation would
prove groundless?"
"Evidently. But that proof?"
"That proof exists, Monsieur!"
A stifled exclamation arose from
every throat. And above this murmur,
Marthe heard a woman's sob. Her
strength almost deserted her, she
recognized Edmee in that weeping
woman. She was evidently there with
her mother-in-law, lost in the throng,
anxiously watching the testimony Unit
would decide Robert's fate. The chalice was full; she must drink it to the
* Order was re-established, and the
president once more turned to Marthe.
"What proof have you, Mademoiselle?"
It was only after several unsuccessful efforts that she succeeded In answering. At last, in a monotonous and
weary voice, as If she were repeating
a lesson learned by heart, she said,
"I understand, Monsieur, that you
admit, as proofs, the account books of
merchants, well kept registers, and
even household accounts."
"It is true."
"The proof that I bring is my diary;
that is, the register of my hidden
thoughts, of my most secret sentiments. In It you will find the incidents
of July 29th very minutely described.
After reading it no one can doubt my
Instinctively she turned her head.
Robert's ardent gaze acted ns magnetism. There was nothing to conceal
now. Even before the reading of these
sheets, Robert understood the extent
of the sacrifice, knew that he had been
loved, adored by this poor misunderstood young girl. He saw all this on
her agonized face. And in that long
gaze, she read to the depths of his
soul and realized that he knew, that
he bowed down before her in spirit,
that he blessed her! She saw, also,
in this supreme moment, it was not of
Edmee he thought, although her sobs
had revealed her presence there, but
of her, of her only. That Instant repaid her for all.
Yet, when the president asked for
the diary, she retained It for a moment longer, loath to part with it.
"May I ask, Monsieur, that, only the
parts absolutely necessary shall be
road. I Buffer much���"
She could not finish her phrase, but
all had understood.
"I give you my word, Mademoiselle.
But to prove to the genllemen of the
jury that this is not a manuscript
fabricated or the occasion, I shall
have to read a few passages taken at
random during Ihe months that preceded the day of tho crime. Moreover,"
he added as he turned the pages, "the
color of the ink, paler in many places.
Is a conclusive proof that this journal
was written at different times. I see
that it dates back to nearly two years
During the reading she remained
motionless, almost as white as a marble statue. It seemed to her that life
was dying out within her, that each
Instant left her colder, that the blood
was freezing in her veins. She listened to the expressionless voice of the
clerk as he read aloud that all might
hear the despairing avowals, the cries
of passion, she bad written for herself only. Sometimes, the sense did
not. penetrate into her tired brain,
then again It seemed lo her that thf
words re-echoed within her with play-
cing accents:
"My little Edmee. my darling child,
If you knew, if you could guess the
thoughts that struggle within me! ���
Are you really what you seem? But
what matters! since you possess that
all-powerful charm; since I, though
doubting and questioning, still love
yon; since to spare you a tear, 1
would weep day and night; since to
give you happiness, I would accept
perpetual sadness and despair���"
And then again:
"My God! my God! how I suffer!
how unhappy I am! how I wish I could
die! He called me sister. Was It simply a commonplace word of affection,
or was it said with a particular Intention? Am I not destined to become
ills sitter some dav'.' Alas'���"
And now her scciretberotiged to the
world; It would be tossed about
amidst peals of laughter as children
toss a toy balloon filled with air. She
could never appear before the world
without the remembrance of this cruel
day standing as a wall between herself and those who gazed at her. And
that was nothing, Robert knew that
he had been loved; Edmee knew it
also. And nothing, nothing (*ouhl make
them forget this sad love!
Yet, In spite of all, In spite of her
personal sufferings. her sacrifice
brought her Infinite sweetness. Robert was saved and saved hy her.
When the reading was at. last terminated, a feeling of numbness came
over her, and without a cry she fell
heavily to the floor.
Marthe Levasseur was very ill, but
she did not die. Her aunt nursed her
day and night, suffering no one to approach the bedside where her niece,
a prey to an ardent fever, talked wlld-
lv; her brain ever busy, her eyes haggard and frightened, ns if pursued by
a nameless terror.
Robert and his young wife no longer thought of the proposed journey.
They came every day to the chateau,
where they saw no one but the servants. At last, one morning, they were
told that the danger was over, that
the delirium had ceased. As they refused to leave without seeing Mme.
Despois, she appeared, very cold and
distant, scarcely deigning to answer
their questions.
"It Is true the doctor has hopes,"
she said. "The delirium has ceased.
Do you know what she repeats incessantly: 'O, aunt why did you save me?
I long so much for death; I am so
weary; I have spent all my strength!'
I believe I preferred her delirium to
this cry."
"If you knew, Aunt Relie, how much
I have wept," murmured Edmee.
"You can do that without effort,"
said Mme. Despois, dryly.
"I know you will never forgive me.
All that has happened Is not my fault,
and yet without me it would not have
Aunt Relie remained Inflexible and
silent. Robert instinctively threw his
arm around Edmee and said:
"I am sure that Marthe is less harsh
to this child than you."
"In fact, Robert, she never once
mentioned you in her delirium. It was
Edmee she called Incessantly, as if in
the crisis she had gone through, all
had foundered, -swept that Instinct of
maternity, that need of loving which
has cost her so much���"
Before she could be prevented, Edmee escaped from tho room, ran wildly up the stairs, and entered the sick
chamber fiom which she had so long
been excluded. When Mme. Despo's
reached it in her turn, followed by
Robert, Edmee was kneeling beside
the bed, and Marthe, radiant and with
eyes sparkling with happiness, was
caressing her with her weak, trembling hand.
"I understand it all now," stammered the younger sister, "and will try
all my life to remember that there is
something above happiness���Tell me
that you forgive me, tell me what I
can do to merit this forgiveness some
"But I have nothing to forgive you,
my little Edmee. I have loved you,
that is all. Some day, if you have
many children, you will give me one���
a blonde little girl. I will bring her up
and love her so much. There is within
me a sentiment of maternal love���"
The young couple finally left for
Italy, where their stay was indefinitely
prolonged. On the advice of the physician, Marthe also left her dear solitude and went with her aunt to Algeria. She felt the need of leaving
the spot, for some time at least, where
she had Buffered so much.
She recovered her physical strength
long before lhe wounds in her heart
closed, but the cure came at last.
Marthe acquired a taste for traveling,
and her aunt, who was fond of a
change, encouraged her. More than a
year passed thus, and Marthe recovered her former serenity and was
almost contented.
A few months after Robert's acquittal. Captain Demand's murderer
was discovered. He was a poor soldier who had deserted, exasperated
by the harshness of hia captain. While
almost dying of starvation, he had entered a house with the Intention of
robbing, and. finding a revolver, the
idea Immediately came to him to kill
the man who was the cause of all his
troubles. Later, being arrested for desertion and burglary, he related how
he had avenged himself on his com-
When Marthe finally returned to
Cote Hoisee, spring was In its full
splendor. Mine. d'Ancel was the first
to come lo the chateau to greet her.
There was a moment of embarrassment, but Mine. Despois began to talk
rapidly of their travels, and the constraint soon melted away. Marthe was
so cordially simple and natural that
the past seemed far away and forgotten.
Again, as two years before, the
young chatelaine accompanied the
visitor to the end of the park. Again
while they walked on, their gaze wandered over the sea, the graceful curve
of the yellow shore, the thin silhouette of the distant Havre. They seemed equally happy to see each other, to
feel the old friendship re-awakening.
Mme. d'Ancel, not daring to express
all her thoughts, displayed infinite
tenderness in her least words, in her
least gestures, and Marthe understood
it all. It was, however, with a faint
tremor in her voice that she finally
"Robert has promised 'o spend part
nf the summer with me "
"Edmee mentioned it in her last
letter," observed Marthe, with a quiet
smile. "She is very proud at the
thought of presenting me her little
son. But she gives very few details."
And that was all.
When Marthe found herself alone,
she seated herself on the bank by the
roadsftle, breathing the odor of the
pines warmed by the sun and gazing
far away.
Yes, she would see Edmee and Robert once more!
Of all that violent tempest that had
swept over their heads, what remained? Neither Robert, Edmee nor herself
could forget. But little by little, almost insensibly, the remembrance
was becomlug less painful and assuming a different character. After a
first burst   of    nas-iouate    eratltude.
Edmee ha*J "again TOrtl mvaiTeiT By a
disquieting jealousy, of which she
dared not speak, but which her husband understood. Then feeling herself
still adored always tenderly petted,
what was best In her nature slowly
developed. Once In her letters, generally so short and commonplace, she
had said: "I believe that I am becoming better, more serious���I owe that
to you, Marthe, as I owe you my happiness���"
It was of this Marthe was thinking
as she gazed on the blue and smiling
sea. Then she arose and walked slowly
through the budding forest. The young
verdure, so tender in color, the thou-
sand blossoms that filled the air with
fragrance, the warbling of the birds,
all that spoke to her! Telling her that
cruel winter, like sorrow, is not eternal, that all recommences, all aspires
toward happiness, and that this happiness comes under many forms.
Her sacrifice would not be fruitless.
Having suffered much, she had learned to feel deeply the suffering of
others. What mattered the rest? She
yearned for death no longer, as she
had done during that horrible crisis.
She loved life, notwithstanding the
shade of sadness which she could not
completely throw off and which had
nothing of bitterness, and she found
It good to live. Of all the sentiments
that had tortured her, there now remained only an infinite sweetness and
a passionate desire to see those she
loved happy and noble.
And peace having thus come, she
regretted nothing.
Winter Quarters ot Fowl- Should Be
Prepared For Occupancy*
It Is not too soon to begin preparations for next winter, says Farm Journal. Too soon to do tbe work is not
to be considered unless there is nothing
to do. It is surprising how much one
will have to do when winter comes on
end be is unprepared.
The poultry house may require overhauling in various ways or a new one
may be built. It will be found that a
new house will be less damp if built
soon enough te allow the wood to season before winter. Earth floors that
have been saturated with the droppings of tbe fowls should be removed
to the depth ef six inches and fresh
material used, aud the roof should be
carefully examined while made tight
on tbe old house.
Another point is that it is only after
ene has built a poultry house and used
It a year that he knows what he wants.
No man ever built a poultry house that
he could not see something to Improve
about It, and it is this experience that
Is assisting to get more eggs In winter.
Then there are the roosts and nests.
Those who have spent hours performing the work of cleaning out the
poultry houses will appreciate any labor saving contrivances, and the time
to adopt them is before the winter begins.
It Is suggested that the house have
plenty of windows, so as to secure
sunlight and warmth. Nothing Is so
repugnant to fowls as darkness during
the day, and they will frequently remain In u storm outside rather than
keep within the walls of a dark house.
Begin tbe fall right and prepare for
the winter early so as to have the hens
and pullets laying before the cold
weather sets in.
Rye For Fa-tore and Soiling.
Rye is not half appreciated by the
American farmer. It is very hardy,
will grow on the poorest land, makes
good winter and spring pasture and
if sown early enough makes good fall
pasture. It is a good early spring soiling crop. It makes a fair quality of
hay if cut in bloom or before, and it
always sells at good prices and makes
the best of bedding for cattle and
horses. It Is also an excellent green
manure crop for turning under In early
spring. While It does not add nitrogen,
as tbe clovers do, it makes a great
deal of humus, and thus Improves the
texture of wornout soils. It will
grow iu any section that can grow
any of the small grains. Where corn
or potatoes or cowpeas are grown after
corn, rye may be sown In the corn at
the time of "laying by" or may be
sown on the stubble after the corn is
cut and be plowed under In the spring
for any of tbe crops mentioned.���W. 3.
Melon- In the Corn Shock.
If when cutting corn you will place
In one of your largest shocks about a

Sheep Ifotu.
Sheep require a clean place to eat
and must have it or else their health
will be impaired and food wasted.
Regularity is perhaps more Important
In feeding sheep than is tbe case with
other animals, for sheep are naturally
regular in their habits.
While a small bunch of sheep can be
kept ou any farm to good advantage,
they serve a double purpose, as they
enrich the farm and bring a cash Income at the same time.
Dear Mother
Alexandra's S'irange Position.
The legal position of Queen Alexandra is very curious. So far as her private business is concerned she is not
regarded by the laws and customs of
England as a married woman at all.
She Is the only woman in Great Britain
who does not come within the scope of
the married woman's property ae,. The
idea of the law is that affairs of stale
consume all the time ol the King and
therefore no responsibility for the
Queen's private business rests upon

Rotten Cored Apple--  Made Sound l>-
Proper  IVrtlll/.Htloii.
Certain facts regarding nn experiment which we conducted a few years
ago may Interest some of the renders
of this paper, writes a correspondent
of American Cultivator.
Wheu we came Into possession of the
fttrm which is our present residence
the apple trees were iu bloom, aud we
were delighted with tbe beauty of nn
especial one, which was the most compact mass of bloom we had ever seen.
We were told thnt the apples at maturity were practically worthless, the
former owner only allowing the tree to
stand because its closely Interwoven
branches made an admirable shelter
for his pigs.
We became much interested in this
apple tree and anxiously watched tbe
growing fruit. The variety wns a
golden russet of line acid flavor, just
suited to culinary use. Tbey grew to
a large size and were slightly streaked
with red at the stem, a beautiful apple, but we had uever seen a closer
comparison to the "apples of Sodom"
���outwardly a first class fruit, but
which could be crushed with ease iu
the hand, revealing a blackened, rotted
center, and entirely worthless. Such
was tbe state of fully three-fourths of
the crop.
I hesitated before acting upon the
advice to destroy this tree, for I believed there wns a remedy. It was
evident from the rank growth that
nitrogen bad been supplied too generously by the pigpen, and too much
nitrogen without pottisb in proportion
to ma.e the pulp of firm texture bad
worked mischief with the apples.
When the tree was making good
growth the following year we applied
ten pounds of muriate of potash, scattering It over the ground under the
trees as far out as tbe branches extended. As this potash is soluble, it
was soon supplying plant food to the
roots, there being no sod to interfere
with its descent.
The result wns a decided object lesson to our neighbors, yet not greater
than we anticipated.
A large majority of the apples were
at maturity of the finest quality, souud
and crisp. Although none had In previous yenrs been placed in tbe cellar,
several bushels were stored that fall,
which kept very well. We make the
same application since each summer,
and there is not a trace of decayed center, nor have we an apple on the farm
which Is so salable duriug March and
even into April as this formerly worthless russet.

How  to  Kill   Sli"*nfr.��.
An Ohio correspondent of National
Stockman writes: I had a field covered
with sassafras sprouts. I tried to kill
them by farming corn, but they got
thicker. I tried wheat, and they
smothered the Wheat. I sowed the
ground in timothy, nnd that did not do
any good. They grew so thick that a
person could not walk through them.
I left them until winter, when tbe
ground was frozen hard. Then I took
a grubbing hoe and cut tbeni off at the
ground and In tbe spring turned my
cattle In on them, nud they ate off
what few started, and that settled
them, and today you can hardly find
a sprout in the field.

Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
With her strength overtaxed u., iuu

herself weak, nervous, and exhausted, subject to indigestion a.id headaches and spells of discouragement
and  despondency.
Under such circumstances Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food eome-i ns a
blessing of great value, bringing new
hope und confidence nnd restoring
vitality  to the  blood  nnd nerves.
Dizzines, heart disturbances, pule,
bloodless appearance, smothering,
choking sensations, heavy heart beating and palliation are sume of the
symptoms which '.'ive way before the
persistent use nf this great food cure.
I'he appetite is sharp nod, digestion
to improved, the form is rounded
out to healthful proportions nnd
gradually and certainly strength and
vigor  replace  weakness  anil  disease.
Mrs. Joint Armstrong, Heather

tor over four years n.'ter the birth
of l.er first child. S.ie was what
mighl be culled a nervous wreck,

I ' ....... Armstrong bad great weakness, heart trouble and indigestion.
; Ii fact she was run down in every
way and seemed to lose all bone of
;ever getting well again. She wns
scarcely able to drag herself about.
"The persistent use of Dr. Chase's
'. Nerve Food has proven of marvel-

In a lottery. Her works comprise

nnd "Rienzi." The Inst named hud a
notable run on tlie stage. But It Is her
tales aud sketches, thrown off apparently with little effort, but full of grace
aud charm, that have given her lasting
fame. The story of the lottery Is quite
romantic. The family were In sore

Have Killed Birds on the Wing and
Caused a Sheep to  Drop Dead.
It does not often happen that a bird
falls a victim to a go'.f ball In its flight,
although such a mishap has occurred
In two or three Instances, says London
Not long ago an incident of this kind
was reported from Raynes Park Golf
Club. It took place in the course of a
���bogle competition. One of the players,
a Mr. Crocker, having driven oft at the
eleventh tee, his ball created some astonishment by coming In contact with
a lark in midair and literally knocking
off its head.
A similar Incident happened last season but one on the ground of the Birk-
dale Club. Two menVbers were playing
a round when one of them made a
brassie shot. The ball was in full
flight when a "bird of the wag*tail species was seen crossing the line of
fllR-ht, and the next moment both objects cam* Into collision at a distance
of aJb'.ut forty paces from the striker.
The consequences were fatal to tbe
unfoi'tunate bird, Which was not only
killed, but decapitated. As for the golf
ball, Its flight was stopped by the Impact, the ball falling to the ground
within a few yards of its slaughtered
victim. The Incident had the further
object of losing the player the match,
he having to make an extra stroke or
two to cover tho distance short covered,
thus costing him the game.
A still more extraordinary freak of
a golf ball resulted In a tragedy on the
Balcomle links in Scotland. In the
course of a match one of the players. In
his drive from the sixth tee, put su
much vigor Into it that the ball struck
ft sheep on the head wilh such force as
to cause It to fall dead on the spot.
A very different, but no less Interesting, story was reported from another
links in Scotland ahout the same time.
In a foursome match, played at North
Berwick, one of the goVfers drove his
ball against a wall. It rebounded Into
some rough grass and for a few minutes could not be traced, but ultimately
the caddie found the ball lying in a
lark's nest, In which were four eggs all
unbroken. For a ball to drop into a
nest of eggs without breaking any was
surely an extraordinary occurrence.
It Is not long since a player at Woking in approaching the hole landed a
ball on the top of the clubhouse. This
lltitle incident did not, however, upset
his equilibrium very much. As nimbly
as he could he followed tho ball to the
roof and from that coign ot disadvantage played It so well that he was successful in securing a half of a hole
which everybody considered irretrievably lost.
A similar scene was once witnessed
on the St. Andrews links in the course
of a three ball match. One of the players happened to drive his ball on the
corrugated Iron roof of a shed and, in
the belief that he had consequently
given up the hole, the other two calmly proceeded with the match. But they
had reckoned without their host, for
the nexit moment there was ft great
clatter of feet on the iron roof. Barely had the warning dry of "fore" reached the players' ears when a ball whizzed
on to the course close by. It was that
of the other player, who had mounted
to the roof and played It from that unexpected corner.

tle Art  cl   Lying.
Very few of us, Indeed, are exempt
from the charge of direct lying. Not
to mention the strategic lies told to
enemies In time of war, to criminals, to
Sick persons and lunatics, as to which
pages upon pages of casuistry appear
In the older works on moral science,
there are what may be termed the lies
lubricant, wrung from us by etiquette
and good breeding. If the amenities
of life were not preserved through the '
gentle art of lying society could scarce- :
ly continue as a happy family; we
should all have to live in separate
Cages, The best of us will tell direct j
lies on trivialities where politeness is
imperative. Wherever practicable, how- j
ever, the spirit of advocacy prevails. !
We say whatever we can truthfully, |
and tactfully pause while the hearer's |
self love aud Imagination fill out a
generally agreeable impression. Family relationships, even more markedly
than business or social relations, exemplify the universal altitude of advocacy. Mr. Roundabout says: "Go to
Brown's house nud tell Mrs. Brown
uud the young ladles what you think
of him nnd see what <i welcome you
will get. In like manner, let him come
to your house and tell your good lady
his candid opinion of you nnd see how
she will receive him." No oue save
nn unspeakable cad would speak slightingly of n husband lo hip wife; no one
save an unspeakable cad would tolerate slighting language In his presence concerning his wife. Sueh Is the
Conventional law as to spouses, parents, children, blood relations In general, even Intimate friends. -Wilbur

Dancing Birds.
Sailors visiting the Island of Lay-
lan, In the Hawaiian group, are greatly amused by the curious antics of the
Laysan albatross, or gony. These birds
sometimes perform, in pairs, a kind of
dance, or, as the sailors call It, "cake-
walk." Two albatrosses approach each
other, nodding and making profound
bows, cross i.helr bills, produce snapping and groaning sounds, rise on their
toes, puff out their breasts, and finally
part with more nodding and bowing,
only to come together again and repeat
the performance. Occasionally three
engage at once In fits singular amusement.

Miss North describes many cf her
young enthusiasms nnd among others
thnt of collecting nnd painting Kngllsh
fungi. On oue outing, she says, I came
upon a fungus about the size of n large
turkey's egg. Eager to see it develop,
1 took it up carefully and carried It
home. I put it under a tumbler on
the window sill of my bedroom at
night. At daylight I was awakened
by a horrible crash of splintering
glass. Behold the tumbler had fallen
to the floor aud broken to bits. The
fungus was standing Ave inches tall,
having hatched Itself free from Its restraining eggliko shell and lu growing had raised the tumbler nnd tilted
if sldewlse until It fell over and to the
floor. The fungus had n horrible smell,
nnd soon a swarm of flies were hovering over It.
