weather of seeding time enabled
the farmers to get in the grain
while the land was in prime condition, nnd ns a result the seed
sprouted evenly nnd the shoots
came up strong and healthy. Tbe

increased vigor and all indications
point to a bounteous harvest.

Vancouver at 10 o'eloi.k on the
niglil of April 7lh nnd arriving at

Mr. James Tcnsdnlo presides as

the near future, will be used for

Most of the "boys'1 have reconciled themselves to the change, and
havp settled down to business for
the summer. Some of tbe young
N'imrods being well equipped with
guns and ifshing-tapklp, have been
devoting their spare time to hunting and fishing, always returning,
however, with a sadtler and wiser
countpnance. They will have many
stories to tell when they return to
Surrey about desperate encounters
with monsters of the forest, mingled
no doubt with an occasional "fish
story." Others, of a sentimental
nature, may be heard singing some
old familiar |ine, such ns, "I'll remember you, love, in my prayer,"
or, ''Some di(y I'll wander bnck

In this neighborhood the scenpry
is decidedly picturesque and quite
worthy of comment. Bear Hivpr is
on Vancouver Island, one hundred

fronting on Johnstone Strait, and
getting its source from the Prince
of Wales Range, which is in the
immediate background. Tlie snowcapped penks of this range rise
some two thousand feet into the
viewless air. The river is rough
nnd unnnvigable, the wnter fulling
some seventy feet in its short course
to the bosom of the Pacific,
Directly opposite us is Thurlow

There is a quustton which constantly

but carved ou stones in South America.
This docs not scum to have :::i obvious original meaning as a symbol. Is it merely an
ornamental design tu which thu Indian
mind Inter attached a sacred sensor It is
found ou pottery from Hlssarlik, Dr. Scbllo-
matin's Troy, nml on old Mexican pottery.
If it is only a piece of decoration like thu
Greek key pattern and wave pattern, also
found in old Peru, wu may perhaps decide
that the burauti mind naturally hits on somo
simple patterns, like thu spirals of Myce-
ncan art, found also in the ruined palace of
Kuonaten, in F.gypt, and In New Zealand
und Celtic art. We can conceive that the
pattern spread from Egypt to Grecca and
thence to thu Norsemen and tliu Celts, hut
we can scarcely Imagine that it was carried
in prehistoric times toNew Zealand. Again,
Mr. Tylor has traced an oriental form ol
backgammon to Mexico, nud wu cannot he
certain whether a rather complicated game
reached America from Asia or wan Independently invented hy thu Aztecs.
A very curious example of this class of
problem has been discovered by Mr. E. S.
Morsu and is published In The Bulletin of
the Essex institute, Salem,Mass. In the
Ashmoleun museum at Oxford may bo seen
an old Egyptian toy found by Mr. Flinders
Petrle in tbe-cemetery of Hawara. It is
engraved in his work ou Hawara, Beabmu
and Arsinoc, cities of tlio Fuyotim. The
cemetery of Hawara is only about as old as
our era, whioh is modern for Egypt. The
toy is uf wood und represents a bird on
wheels. In the neck is a hole, through
which a siring was tied, and some child of
Hawara led his toy about hy thu string.
This is not a very obvious kind of toy, for
the movement of the wheels is not like the
hop of a bird, lu modern toy shops dogs
set on wheeled hoards are common. Iu the
Egyptian example there is no board, but
the wheels are under the wings and level
with the body. The Egyptians of course
as a civilized people hud for thousands of
years been familiar with wheels, and the
toy though rare iu kind him nothing to
arouse curiosity.
lint it is another matter when Mr. Morse
discovers a precisely similar Ainotoy, probably somu SIX) years old. The Ailiosaroa
peculiarly hairy race, who bine a fable Unit
they are descended from hears, which they
Ignornntly worship. They are, or very lately were, savages in a low grade, and with
wheels they have no acquaintance any
more I ban Liddesdale had before Scott
drove the first dogcart through tbe region.
Mr. Morse decides that the bird, which be
engraves, is not of Japanese work—the
wheels have thu peculiarity of being "irregularly ovate, rather than circular." Tho
hole for the string Is, in the tail, and the
irregular wheel makes the bird bop when

form of Egyptian toy, about 50 A. D., and
at tlie ends of the earth, among the hairy
Ainos, a similar toy, rumarkablu Tor possessing wheels, otherwise unused by the
Ainos. Tlie problem is. Has the pattern Altered far east in some unknown manner, or
has it been independently Invented, wheels

of a battlo agreed that whichever of them I

TALE OF CRIME.
M. Theodore, ohef do surety, sat in bis
cabinet deeply perplexed, bis two elbows un his desk, bis head on his bauds,
Jin was musing.
"And was it going to last, this, which
hud been going ou for so long awhile?
Aud thoso nsHiissinB, were they going to
end by healing him? Wero they going
to compel him hy adverse public opinion to send iu his resignation?
"Parhleu! It looked bo, and as if they
did it ou purpose, passing tho word from
ono to another to force him to get out of
their way. Eight assassinations, one
after another! Crimes of tho worst caliber, with startling details, which peopled
alike with horrifying visions the sleep
of tho bureaucrat and tho concierge,
And not an assassin, for all their skillful
work, had thoy been able- to lay their
hands upon. They had fled, every man
of them, They had disappeared, vanished—piff, liko a puff of air. Celerity,
dispatch, tlieir motto, and to go without
leaving au address behind them I Frankly, it had begun to pass tbo hounds of
all reason.
"And now to top off thoso eight other
crimes thero was still another, a ninth
one—a murder like tho others, accomplished tbe evening beforo under similar
conditions."
Tho chef do sureto pulled himself together, threw hack his head liko a war-
horse sniffing battle, and—the door
opened.
It was his secretary who presented
himself, bearing a card iu his Augers.
"A gentleman, monsieur, who insists
upon seeing you. Ho declares," and tbo
secretary smiled a littlo at tho absurdity
of tho idea—"ho declares himself in a
poaition to furnish you with definite particulars regarding the crime of yesterday."
"Ah, tho crime of yesterday!" Tbe
chief turned quickly. "Then hid him
enter," said he, and while tho secretary
regained tlio anteroom to do his bidding
M, Thcodoro cast bis eye upon the card
beforo him.
"Frederick Bouscal,"ho read in a half
voice. "Bouscal, Bouscal, It seems to
me that I know that name—that I've
heard it somewhere."
He scrawled a line upon a scrap of poller aud handed it to the secretary, who
returned it, at the moment ushering iu
tho visitor who had asked to seo him,
dismissed him with a word and was
ready for the matter in hand.
M. Theodore raised his eyes. Beforo
him wns a man simply but neatly clothed, and with n frank and honest countenance, though veiled as by a cloud with
sadness.
"You have particulars to give me, have
you not?" questioned tho chef de surete.
"Particulars of tho crimo of yesterday?"
"I hope so, monsieur," simply responded the visitor.
"Ah, hope sol You are not sure, then?"
"It rests with you, M. le Chef, whether
I am or not. All depends, in fact, upon
an operation, the means of which you
alone aro able to furnish me."
"Explain, if you please."
"Certainly, and at once, though doubtless you have heard it spoken of, M. le
Chef—a certain scientific procedure
which permits, under certain conditions
better even than description can do it, a
reproduction of the portrait of an assassin. Briefly, behold my meaning. Yon
know, of course," he continued, "that
in the phenomenon called vision the object which we see throws, or forms, upon
a screen in the eyeball itself—in plain
words, upon the retina of the eye—an
imago which remains there until displayed by another. It bus been proved
also that this image continues even after
death."
The door of the cabinet opened anew,
and tho secretary of M. Theodore re-entered, holding in his hand a roll of papers, which he laid before his chief, then
turned and was gono again as quickly aa
he had come. M. Theodore lifted it up
and ran his eye over the contents.
You nro named Frederick Bouscal,
are you not, monsieur?*' ho demanded
presently, addressing his visitor.
Yes, M. le Chef, Frederick Bouscal"—
"Your age?"
"Fifty-eight years, M. le Chof."
"Hum-m-m!" M. Theodore rapidly
twirled the sheets besidehim. "Twenty-
Buven years," he murmured, as if thinking aloud. "So it wub you then who
wus imprisoned two years ago and condemned for contumacy aud the theft of
1,000 florinsT
A sudden flush empurpled tho countenance of the visitor.
"No, monsieur," he responded, with an
effort, in a dull voice. "No, it was not I
—it was—my son!"
"An employee of tho Credit Agricole,
was he uot? And—you aro ignorant of
what has become of him,"
"Absolutely. It is 1.1 months that his
mother and I have been without newB of
him,"
"Pardon me, monsieur," said tho chef
do surete. "I havu reopened tt painful
wound, but I listen to you—you were
saying"	
Tho man passed his hand across his
brow nnd eyes to clear his vision, then
resumed:
"I was saying, M. lo Chef, that in the
ciibu which occupies ns now the repro
duction of the assassin's portrait should
bo entirely possible. It is probable, if
not sure, that tho eye of tlie eorpso now
lying upon the slab of thu morgue con-
tuiiiB the exact reproduction of Iho features of the one you seek, With your
permission I will draw it from them,"
"Draw it, but how?"
"By photography—it is my business,
M. lo Chef. And this mutter, this subject I speak of, I have studied it long
and almost with passion, for 1 hold it to
ho, in case of success, ono of the most
useful and beautiful applications of
modern science. I know it can he done.
I havo myself experimented, and in ono
instance have reproduced tlie lineaments
of tlm physician wh$ had loaned above
the bed of the dying."
The man spoke with animation, and
while speaking his voice vibrated, his
eyes burned, his whole countenance was
Illuminated, irradiated witli tlio light of
a legitimate pride.
"Then so bo it, monsieur," agreed tho
chef do surete. "Take your instruments
to tho morgue tomorrow morning at 10
o'clock, I will see (hat the clerk ia instructed. Later un I shall myself be
there. I have the honor, monsieur, to
wish you good morning,"
In the obscure nook ut tlio morgue
whero he had inclosed himself, in ao
OOrdanOQ With the arrangements uiu.lu
nt thu office of the surete, Frederick
Bouscal, his body bent, his faco drawn,
watched anxiously tlio result of his last
washing. The plate waa there before
him in its bath of quicksilver, into which
hu had dropped it awhile ago with such
fear and infinite precaution,
Sensitized? Vitalized? At least it
should be, and if the conditions of tho
crime were such as ho supposed them,
and tbo victim before dying had really
seen ber murderer's face, the portrait of
the assassin would he I here under that
bed of gelatin en tralno to melt away.
His throat closed as by a grip of iron,
tho operaior held himself immovable,
hearing only, with painful distinctness,
tho gurgle of the water as it dripped
upon the faces of tho dead in tho adjoining chamber, the plunge of his blood as
it throbbed and hammered through the
arteries of his heart.
Aud at hist the moment came—tho
moment that was to reveal to him all or
nothing. Ho rose—that poor, trembling
photographer rose, I say, took it carefully by its dripping edges, that plate
upon which his futu wus hanging, half
closed his eyes, held it to tho single ray
of light that filtered through tbe yellow
pane, to stagger back with a groan of
anguish, to let it crush into u thousand
pieces. His son! Good heavens! The
face of the murderer, tho faco of the soul
Five minutes later when Frederick
Bouscal, tho photographer, came from
his nook, and the chief de surete, awaiting him with impatience, hurried to
meet him, ho saw immediately by tbo
pallor of his face, by his somber eyes
that he had nothing good to announce to
him.
"Well," said he, "nothing?"
"No," responded Bouscal, "nothing."
"Allons! no matter. Try it a second
time.   Do it again."
'impossible! Tho transparency of the
cornea is destroyed. I wished to wash
it, aud I burned it through mistake in
the vials. I salute you, M. lo Chef!"
And Frederick Bouscal turned away.
Tho next morning the commissairo of
tho quarter of Ternes, forwarding to the
prefecture his regular report, headed it
with the following item:
Today at 10 o'clock a summons to 109
Rue Laugiere. A call from the concierge, suspicious of charcoal fumes
from the room of the Bouscals, man and
wife, his locatuires. The door by my order was forced. Too late—they wero
dead, both of them, side by side upon
the bed, a brazier of lighted charcoal
plainly indicating the manner of their
dentil. A double suicide—poverty the

The People Who Enjoy Fun,
Peoplo so fond of humor that tbe ridiculous is of more importance to them
than their welfare will be highly gratified
by the proposition of tho railroad lines
east and west to run excursions to the
World's fair at one fare for the round
trip. Tho joke ia as rich in quality as it
is large in quantity. Thirty hours is tho
length of time mentioned as making the
trip from New York to Chicago. No
stop over checks will be allowed. No
sleeping cars will be provided, no parlor
cars, no chair cars. Tho jolly excursionist, it is supposed, will sit bolt upright
in the redolent atmosphere which hangs
about the day coach as the result of a
long contact with tobacco, cold lunches,
decayed fruit and perspiration, and for
hours, with no opportunity to stop off
for sickness, will watch the changing
landscape with open and bloodshot eyes.
When he arrives at the World's fair, he
will ho permitted to stay one week if he
is alive.
No provision is made for extending the
time tn persons for whom the joys of the '
excursion have been too poignant and
who may bo required to spend two or
three weeks in tho hospitals recovering
from the delirium of iiiBomnia or the ty- j

May had been my muslo scholar In tho
days when she was May Beeves, before
John Gordon camo "a-woolng."
Aa the coachman opened tho door a little
figure ran down tho broad atone steps and
was in my arms in a moment, half laughing, half sobbing, caressing mu and kissing
me, with loving words of welcome.
Leading me to a beautifully appointed
room, May allowed mu there to gut my first
real look into her face,
Whon I had seen It last, It hnd lieen
round nnd blooming with the fresh young
beauty of 18, As I looked now I could
have believed the young wlfu had aged 10
years Instead of four.
While I was dressing the patter of littlo
feet across the hall ami a sweet truhlo calling "Mamma!" prepared me fur tho entrance nf tho sturdy little urchin of 'J'j
years, the heir of Morton hall, or, as May
proudly Introduced him, "Our boy Harvey."
But even the proud light of mother love
only lighted the pnlo face for a moment, as
taking her hoy by thu hand May led tho
way to the dining room, where thu bell bad
already announced ii*.
I [ere I met my host, court nous and dignified as ever, charming In conversation and
full of polite inquiry an to Wllloughhy and
its Inhabitants, and here, for thu first time,
I began to find somo of the cause of dear
May's pale cheeks and sad eyes,
It was evident to me, though May gave
mo no spoken confidence, that tlie four past
years had been passed la a vain attempt to
win tho loving praise that hnd been hor
daily portion in her own home.
John Gordon was liberal, affording the
wife ovory pleasure a well filled purse could
glvo. He was gentle aud courteous, anil It
was evident that he wan a model husband,
Mny wns self sacrificing and devoted, not
telling even her own heart thnt she bad
any ground for unluippincss, yet surely pining for open, cordial love and praise.
It was a fearfully hot night lu August
when John Gordon, rapping at my door,
called:
"Will you come to Mayf She Is 111, and I
am going for the doctor."
Before morning a tiny girl was sleeping
in tho nursery cradle, but tho mother lay
in a dangerous stupor. Por three long weeks
wu watched the frail life hanging on a
thread, Kinking little hy little, with no
point of bopo for tho anxious hearts that
loved her.
The most dangerous symptom, the doctor
assured us, was the patient's own apathy.
"If you can rouse her," ho said to me, "to
try to live, she may yet recover. Hut a few
days moro of this dull apathy will surely
kill ber."
Then I resolved to make one great effort,
With my resolution taken, I went after
that interview with the doctor straight to
John (jurdou'H library. Be was sitting in
a weary, listless attitude, but rose to place
a chair for me.
"May is better?" be nsked, with touching
engerness, his faco fulling agnin as I shook
my head.
"John," I said, plunging at once into my
errand, "will you let me speak a few plain
words to you!' I have loved May since she
was a liny baby, ami I cannot seo her die
without au effort to savu ber. I believe
you lovo her?"
"I would give my life to see her well
again," he said passinnntely.
"And yet," I said sadly, " 'tis your want
of appreciation that is killing her."
"I do not understand you," he snid, and
he was perfectly sincere when he spoke.
Then very gently I pointed out to him
how faithfully May had filled all wifely
duties.
"Hut women like these things. My
mother always kept the house and table
bo," bo said.
"Women like them," I replied. "True,
loving women like t hem just iu proportion
ns they give pleasure to those they love."
"Hut surely they always give pleasure.
Do you imagine I do not knuw how lovely
my wife ia, bow patient nnd careful? A
mother to my boy, who will make bim a
noble, true man. Surely I know my wife
is almost perfect."
"Tell her you know it," 1 snid. "Irft ber
see it in your eyes, feel it in your kiss. Go
to her, take her In yoirr arms nnd tell her
how dreary life will be to you if she Is lost.
Hid her live for your sake, nud she will not
die."
"But the excitement, tho agitation!" he
said. "I hnvo scarcely dared to speak to
her or even to kiss her for fear of agitating
her."
"And she Is dying for want of those very
loving words and kisses."
I marched the nurse into the next room

"Well, I don't know. Judge," said the
defendant, scratching Ids head In a doubtful manner. 'I've paid for six divorces
already, nnd I don't want to pny for any

"Von won't havo to pay for anymore
divorces," broke In tho woman. "You gut
married now, and we'll stick together."
Dunley stilt hesitated, nnd It took several queries from tho court to secure an
answer from him. At last ho said meditatively, "I gueaa It's just as cheap to got

"Remember! Why, May, there is no

I stole away. Heart meeting heart was
too sacred for any third party to witness.

board with a Mrs. Brown, who kept a fine
house nnd wan of distant kin to him. Knrly
In tho morning, shortly after Mr. Tihhett's
arrival, Mrs. Hrown was in her dining
room putting some finishing touches to her
pretty breakfast table—and a lovely clean,
bright mom it looked, with its targe hay
window ami Its flowers and birds, open lire,
and last, but not least, the breakfast table
with snowy damnsk und gleaming silver
nud beautiful nhl china,
Mrs. Brown took a pride in her homo
and had Inherited many things from her
mother, who kept, the liouso before her.
As she moved about her work the door
opened with n bang and in rushed Mr. Tihbett with a huge carving ktllfo in Ids baud
and his oyes gloaming oven brighter than
usual. "Mrs, Drown," he said, "Father (ho
always called (Jod Fat her) has vouchsafed
me a vision. Father tells mc thai, yon have
always boon a good servant of ills and that
he would have you with him, so he has
chosen me as thu Instrument of hlsdivinu
will, I am lo cut your throat with this
knife and let your pure spirit free logo to
Father."
Mrs. Hrown looked up at the towering
form of her kinsman nnd could see thu
blatMJ of Insanity in his eyes. Then shu
calmly smiled, as she quietly faced death,
and said: "If your heavenly Falher has
given you this work to do, you must do It,
and 1 must submit to my fate, but wu hnd
better think of the best way of doing lb,
You were always counted n neat workman.
Look around at this pretty, bright, clean
room. Would it not he u pity to spoil it
With my gore? I havu thought of a good
plan. Do you go up to your room and get
your basin tu catch the blond in, and I can
lay my head over it, and you can do your
work neatly, and nlso it will give me time
to prepare to meet my Heavenly Father."
"Why, Mrs. Hrown," said Mr. Tihbett.
"whata good plan! I never thought of
that, It would bu a pity to spoil this lovely room, now I think of it. Do you wait
here, and I will make all haste to do your
bidding."
It is needless to say when Mr. Tihbett returned he did not find his most accommodating relative waiting for him, but several
Strong men who secured him. nnd afterward he wns sent to the lunatic asylum till
ho should think he had a dispensation from
"Father" to keep the peace.
Months passed away, and spring was onco
more gladdening the earth. John Tihbett
hail long recovered, but it wns feared if he
wns allowed to go at large he might have a
relapse and do some oue an injury. He
was always longing to see his dear friend
who hnd converted him, for Mr. Hozlom.
he was sure, would see how perfectly recovered be was and let him go free. Ono
day he was in tbe yard with some of tho
keepers; ho looked up at the high, roughly
built old wall which surrounded the institution and said: "Father can do all things.
He could free me now if ho would. Look at
the cobblestones in that, wall! If he willed,
Father could give me power to climb over
-I, S, 8, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, », and over." With
that he made a rush, counting as he ran,
Hew up the side of the wall and disappeared over tbe top.
Then there wns a great commotion In tho
Institution. They sent people near and far
to look for John Tihbett. He seemed simply to have disappeared. All round the
outside of the asylum wall there grew a
hedge, thin except near the big gates, where
it was very thick. As soon as John Tihbett found himself over the wall, he crept
quickly round to the thick part of the
hedge near the gates and lay down, perfectly covered by tho evergreens, nnd
though they searched carefully they never
thought of looking for him beside their
very portals.
Ho kept quiet till the pursuit was over
and the darkness of night had settled dowu
on the land. At last, when be thought all
was safe, he started out, making up his
mind to go to Mr. Ha/.lcm, who lived quite
a distance from there. ^_*
He walked on nnd on under the frlemAx
shelter of the night till became to a cot*
tuge where they were having an all night
prayer meeting. They were on their knees
when he entered, so no ono saw his convict's dress. There being a pause, ho lifted
up his voice and gave them one of his wonderful prayers till they were completely
carried away. So when they got off their
knees one of them took him home and gave
him food and shelter nnd a change of
clothes, and he went on his way after tho
darkness had fallen over the lund the next
night, And bo from house to house ho
walked, literally praying his way nlong.
There was an arm of the sea between Mr.
Ha/.lein's house und the mainland, and riding at anchor on the waters wns a Itritish
ship of war. When John Tihbett got to
this water, there was no way of getting
across, bo ho said, "Father can make mo
swim as he helped me to climb the high
wall." He walked Into the wntcr, and although he never swam before his faith was
so strong that he swam lo the ship aud
climbed up the Bides. The sailors wero
very much alarmed at first, hut afterward
crowded round him, and be gave them an
address and one of his wonderful prayers.
Then he quietly slipped over the other side
of the ship and swam to the shore and arrived nt Mr. Ha/.lein's house all dripping
wet. Mr. llazlcni kept him with him fur
several years, but he finally went permanently mad and had to he shut up, which
broke his heart, aud bo soou died.—Kx-

The most heiiutifiil Bpot in all tliis city
is inseparably associated with the name
ol Hack ley. Charles ii. II nek ley has
been In the lumber business here continuously since I860, and in that time
bus amassed a fortune which gives him
a rating among the wealthy men of the
nation. Hut with wealth there did not
come that ti^hteuingof tbe purse strings
which is generally a marked characteristic of wealthy men.
It is no wonder theu that the name of
Charles 11. llackley is known at home
ami abroad. His muniiicence to Muskegon alone represents an outlay of nearly
half a million. For the poet twenty
years be has been a constant sufferer
from neuralgia and rheumatism, also
numbness of the lower limbs, so much
so that it lias seriously interfered with
liis pleasure in life. Fur some time
past his friends have noticed that he
seemed to grow young again and to
have recovered tbe health which lie bad
in youth.
To a reporter for the Press Mr. Hack-
ley explained the secret of his transformation. "1 have suffered for over 20
years," lie said, "with pains in. my
lower limbs so severely that the only
relief I could get at night was by putting cold water compresses on my
limbs. I was bothered more at night
than in tbe day time. The neuralgic
and rheumatic' pains in my limbs,
which bad been growing in intensity
for vears, finally became chronic. I
made three trip's to the Hot Springs
wnli only partial relief und then fell
back to my original state. I couldn't
sit still and my sullerings began to
make life look very blue. Two years
ngo last September I noticed an account
of Dr. Williams' I'ink Pills for Pale
People and what they bad done for
others, ami some cases so nearly resembled mine that 1 was interested, so
I wrote to one who had given a testimonial, an eminent professor of music
in Camnla. Tbe reply 1 received was
even stronger than the printed testimonial and it gave me faith in the
medicine.
•' "I began taking the pills and found
them to be all that the professor had
told me they would be. It waa two or
three months before I experienced any
perceptible betterment of my condition.
Sly disease was of such long standing
that I did not expect speedy recovery
and was thankful even to be relieved. I
progressed rapidly, however, towards
recovery and for tlie lost six months
have felt myself a perfectly well man.
1 have recommended the pills to many
people and am only too glad to assist
Others to health through the medium of
this wonderful medicine. I cannot say
to > much for what it has done for me."
Dr. Williams'I'ink Pills contain all
tbe elements necessary to give new life
and richness to the blood and restore
shattered nerves. They are for sale bv
all druggists, or mny be had by mail
from Dr. Williams'Medicine Company,

People often wonder at the rugged health

Tlie American Woman,

which it (nature) has lavished upon her,
ono of tho most characteristic is certainly
adaptability. Few women in Europe pus-
Bess in tbe same degree as tho American
woman the faculty of identifying themselves with their medium of changing
country, climate and surroundings with ho
wonderful suppleness.
"More perfectly than others she accommodates herself to circumstances, while she
preserves her individuality in a strange surrounding. Whenever wo meet tho American woman—and we meet ber everywhere,
in the ranks of the Kngllsh peerage nnd of
the highest European aristocracy, oh woll
as In more modest condlt ions—wonro struck
with that marvelous adaptability in which
wise men see tho signs nf tho superiority of

THE FIRST MOSQUITO.
THE ALASKAN INDIANS HAVE A LEGEND ON THE SUBJECT.

fiiflublo Experiences Willi thu Peaky
Iiini'I'Ih    Milium Employed mi  Protection
Against iho saw iiuia.
Tlio mosquito Is a universal pest. It
thrives In lands both frigid aud tropical.
Frum one cud of tho earth to the other the
little tyrant persecutes mankind with his
vicious bite aud tantalizing singing.
In Alaska during tho summer time his
presence makes life almost Intolerable—
even the tough old moose and caribou and
shaggy coated hears aro driven from the
valleys nnd compelled to seek shelter on tho
hilltops, which aro swept clear of insects by
the constant breeze.
When the Indian is resting in the woods,
ho sets lire to tlie leaves and twigs around
him, making a smudge which protects him
against tho oloudflof insects till he Is ready
to shoulder his pack nnd take tho trail
again. Before leaving be never thinks of
extinguishing the lire ho has made, and big
forest 11 res often result from Ibis neglect,
A breeze will fan the smoldering embers
Into a flame, which will creep up into tho
dry spruce aud hemlock and rapidly spread
till miles and miles of timber lands uro
burned to blackened slumps.
When traveling lu Alaska, the white man
smears his bauds and face with bacon fat
aud pine pitch as a defense against mosquito bites, but even with this unsavory
precaution I have had my head so swollen
hy the poisonous stinging that 1 could not
wear my hat.
Sleep is simply Impossible without the
shelter of n good mosquito net, and this
must bo carefully tucked In, for ull night
long swarms of mosquitoes will ho creeping
all over It, persistently seeking an entrance,
and If thero is a weak spot iu your fortifications It will bo discovered. When by
somo accident a man finds himself at the
mercy of these pests, he will attempt an escape no matter what the risk.
I remember that one time in Alaska I
was hunting mountain sheep ou some
heights which could only bu reached by
dangerous climbing. Late In tho evening
I found the darkness closing around me,
nnd I wns at au elevation of .1,000 feet. At
all points steop stones reached down to the
valley below. After searching for a possible means of descent I finally discovered
the head of a small cascade, and I decided
to follow this.
At first the little stream tumbled over
huge bowlders, among which I carefully
made my way without accident, but theu
I reucbed a point where tbe waters flowed
over a smooth face of rock which slanted
down abruptly for 50 feet. As I waa hesitating about continuing my journey by
this dangerous route clouds of mosquitoes
were swarming around me and attacking
me most unmercifully, and I determined to
escape from them at all hazards.
Throwing my feet out fn front of me, 1
let myself slide down the steep rock. For
some distance 1 sped along merrily, but I
was unable to stop myself, and upon reaching nn uneven stretch of stone I was thrown
on* my course and tumbled head over heels,
In which undignified position I continued
for a few yards until I was flung broadside
onto a hemlock stump, which stopped my
further progress tn a nerve shattering manner.
Tbe tobogganing experiment bad been
unpleasant I was bruised and scratched
and stabbed all over with tbe spikes of the
devil's cub plant, but as I sat in tbe smoke
of tbe campfire that night 1 felt grateful
for having escaped the mosquitoes, even at
such a cost.
Tbe Alaskan Indians have a legend recording the origin of mosquitoes.
In the olden times there lived in the
snow burled mountains of Klecea an old
giant, hideous to behold nnd mighty in
strength. He lived with bis wife and three
big sons. All were cannibals, and they
subsisted entirely upon human beings. The
old father had snares and spiked pitfalls
on all the trails leading to the interior with
which he caught the unwary traveler. So
successful were tbe giant's inhuman efforts
that the powerful nations of Chilcat and
Qoonennnr dwindled down till only a few
families were left.
Eventually a medicine man ambitious
for glory decided that he would pit bis natural cunning and supernatural power
against the giant's strength and skill.
Armed with a keen bladed knife and an assortment of wonder working charms, the
doctor started off for the contest. He approached the traps very carefully and then
purposely and with but slight injury he
caught himself in one of the snares and lay
still as though dead. Soon the old giant,
making his rounds In tho morning, came
along, and seeing tbe sleek carcass of the
doctor chuckled to himself at bis unusual
success, and putting the body into a sock
which he always carried for the purpose he
started home to receive the congratulatory
remarks of his family upon his fat catch,
and upon his reaching his hut preparations
were at once mode to convert the doctor
into a dainty meat
The smoldering embers of the fire were
blown into flame, and big cooking pots bad
already been provided, when suddenly tbe
doctor sprang to bis feet and commenced to
cut and stab with his knife. So unexpected
was tbe attack and so dexterously was the
weapon handled that in a few minutes the
bloodthirsty old giant and his entire family wore lying dead. These cannibals bod
been very untidy and dirty, nud everywhere
tbe dust was lying inches thick. This
flew up in clouds when the scrimmage took
place with the medicine man, aud every
particle turned into a mosquito when the
?.hints dled.-E. J. Glave in Philadelphia

What to Read.
The difficulty of (hiding something to read
lu an ago when half the world is engaged
iu writing books for tbe other half to read
Is not one of quantity but quality, so the
question "What shall I reodf" inevitably
suggests the parallel query, "What shall 1
uot reodf" The wisdom of ^writing, uo-
cordiug to Mr. Lowell, consists of knowing
what to leave In the inkpot. Applying tbe
same truth to rending it mny bo said that
ho who reads most wisely is tbe reader
who kuows what books to leave uncut. If
the number of books extant in the time of
Solomon was so great as to call for comment, Curly le has far more reason to bewail
the prolific press of today, "Still undaunted, rushes on the great array of publications, unpausing to their final home, and
still oblivion, like tbe grave, cries 'Give.'"

AN   INCOMPLETE   HOUSE.
We run wild over tho furnishings of a

Something there should be always on the

A Hint I'oi Miitflu SlNtern.
Two sisters can help each other a great
deal by wearing gowns that suit each other
aud hy posing about harmoniously, making
plcturcHof themselves. It Is ornamental
to the rooms too. I know a pair of girls
who owe half their Invitations to the fact
that they make a point of posing in corners
and looking sweet and interesting. They
devote themselves so much to this that
they arc tiot at all particular about getting
the usual attention girls expect, nnd hostesses realize bow decorative they are and
useful, too, In n way. Of course girls who
go iu for lhis kind of thing should set each
other off. Oue might be, for Instance, a
vivid red blond and tbo other a dull ashes
blond. One ought to be either distinctly
prettier than the other, or one should be
quite another type from tbo other.—Boston

TIIK MANITOBA SCHOOLS,
At ,-i recent public meeting in
tho Orange Hall nt Surrey Cent re
an address wns doliverpd by the
Grand .Muster of tho Orarjge Order
in this Province treating of tin1
Manitoba school question in its relation to thu Dominion generally.
The position taken by (irnnd Master Sparling that the true eduoa-
tionnl interests of the Canadian
people would lie best served hy one
system, of purely non-religious
Schools  for  nil, is one with which

The remedial order of  the Gov-
this journal agrees heartily, while emor in Counoil Proceeds precisely
not  forgetting  tho  constitutional ttlonS the lines submitted hy the
impossibility of the general application pf tbe principle, a fact not
overlooked by Mr, Sparling. In

to give the impression that tlie
Dominion Government was at fault

ly meeting of (lie board of Trade,
a plain endeavor was made lo
oh'eqli the majority of tho council
in proceeding further, us witness
the following resolution :
'(.Moved by D. S. Curtis, seconded
by C. G, Major I Whereas, the City
Council bus, by a majority of one,
instructed the Finance Committee
to put tho FrriBor ftivor bridge
bonds satisfactorily on tho market
for gale; and whereas, in the opinion of this Hoard, such action is
culinary to sound public policy
and extremely detrimental to the
best interests of this city, inasmuch
ns tho financial condition of the
city docs not justify an iiditional
debt of $400,000: Resolved, that
this Board do hereby place its disapproval of suoh proposal to dispose, pf the bonds at this time on
record, and pledges itself to oppose
nny attempt to carry out the city
bridge scheme until such time ns
proper and business arrangements
aro made with some one or more
railways or other companies to
materially assist In maintaining
snid bridge, and that a copy of this
resolution be sent to tho City Council, as well ns being published, in
the local press.'1
A special general meeting of thp
Board is culled for Wednesday
next to take thp above resolution
into consideration, when it is likely
the whole bridge matter will be
discussed In all its details. As the
construction of the bridge as proposed will entail a considerable
debt upon till city property, wp are
among those who believe that the
chief owners of that property are
entitled to special consideration,
and thnt in a caup of this kind the
voice of that section of the doctorate who exercise (he voting privilege upon rented property, etc.,
should carry comparatively little
weight, The people who bear the
iharge. are in qquity entitled to
judge c,f the service. If, therefore,
those who represqnt the bulk of the
city property, hold that the obligation proposed to be placed upon
them, is greater than is warranted
by a fair consideration of the circumstances, it is not easy to see
where rcnsonable objection can be
taken should they use their best
endeavors to hold themselves free
of the burden.
On the other hand, so far as concerns the Provincial aid granted to
the bridge undertaking, the people
south of the river, rightly consider
themselves parties to the grant on
a par with the people of Westminster, for although the grant
stands in the name of the city, it
pute certain that it would not
have been made if there were not
people on this side the river to be
benefitted by it, and it is also certain that people here have equal
interest with their fellows in all
public funds of the Province. It
follows then, that while the ratepayers of Westminster are alone
entitled to decide whether the grant
should be accepted on the terms of
assuming large liabilities in connection with it, the people south of
the river have just claim to require
that a decision of some kind be arrived at without unreasonable delay. Manifestly, the people of
Westminster should not be permitted hy want of agreement
amongst themselves, to lock out
other people from benefits intended
to be conferred by the bridge subsidy
This is on the supposition that,
should the subsidy be released
from the control of the Westminster
authorities, means would be found
to utilize it to the benefit of all
concerned. Nothing, of course,
can be done in this direction during the Legislative recess, so that,
without remedy, the whole summer is available for the reaching
of a conclusion by tho city of
Westminster. Considering the
delays already incurred, thnt
should be abundance of time.

to have to announce that the average of this season's catch of seals

Cold Weather in Europe.
Lop(jOn, May 18, Thero was ;\
sudden change mi Thursday last,
The mercury hero, which has been
making people feel happy and contented for several weeks past, suddenly dropped, and within a few
hours had reached -10 degrees, making everybody here hunt for cast-
off winter garments of various descriptions. TJiis sudden drop in
the temppraturo was followed by
furious gales, which have sinco
been raging along the coast, while
hail and snow in many parts
of the country have greatly
damaged, the fruit buds.
Great Britain, however, is not
alone in this remarkably sudden
change from balmy spring to
shivering winter weather. Adviops
received from various parts (if
the continent of Europe show that
a similar state of things prevails.
In Switzerland, for instance, the
Jura district is blocked with snow,
and on the mountain roads near
Davos the stage coaches were imbedded in snow, and people who
were travelling in these vehicles
had to seek refuge in neighboring
houses, whore they were most hospitably entcrtainpd. Along the
south coast of France the gales
have been especially severe, and it
Is feared there has been loss of life
among the small craft, such as
fishing boats, which may have been
caught far from land and unprepared for the sudden change in the
weather.
