The steamei North Pacific,  during a fog, struck and sank on  Craven Rock Vancouver; she had  14 passengers neaily all of whom  were asleep at the time. No lives  were lost principally owing to the  fact that the water was calm.  The Maitilandei also struck and  giouuded near Marrowstone at low  tide, it is not thought she suffeied  any damage.

He was half dead from cold.  Ciudad Bolivar Taken.  Caracas, Venezuela.���The city  of Bolivar was captured by the  government troops last week after  a desperate fight. Many revolutionists were killed.  Hold   Up.  Two masked men held up the  Anaconda Saloon, in Seattle and  only succeeded in getting $20.  Rev. J. Pringle Back.  The Rev. J. Pringle arrived from  Dawson last Wednesday; he will  take the regular service held at  Allin and Discovery. All are  welcome; the Rev. John Pringle is  well known and will undoubtedly  have a large attendance.  Eaily in the week we heard the  repoil.of a wonderful rich strike on  Spruce Cieek and' upon investigation we' are able to publish the  following account:  Messrs.,,Williarn aud Chas. Queen,  who are located on No. 85 below on  Spiuce, struck a wonderlully rich  pay streak in the benches* The  first three pans yielded no less than  $60.60. Mr. - Muidock McKay,  who "heard of the find, panned out  $27.20 for one single pan. In*the  next 2*2 hours' sluicing the clean up  totalled ,$2365,00 with only four  men shoveling into the, boxes.  ��� The Queen Bros, have 900 feet  of flume and over 1000 feet of ditch  and have justturned' on the water;  it is, certain that1" the result-of the  season's work will astonish even  the owners themselves. , ,  That the' strike "on Queen's  property is not the' only pay dirt  on Spruce is evidenced by all others  working on, that Creek.

He has forty men on the construction work and will have everything in readiness tor working on  a large scale next season.  Blue Canyon.  Jackson and Leatherdale have  just completed their new 10-foot  overshot wheel and have started  work on  their  valuable  property.  They have a long line of sluices,  a bed rock flume and are iu fine  shape to do good work this season.  An'  Atlin Favorite.  Miss Hughes, the popular teacher  of Barnet school, was presented a  handsome book by her pupils; she  is well liked by both parents and  chifdreu, so much so that she will  return to Barnet after vacation.  We are not surpiised to hear this  news as Miss Hughes wasa general  favorite here and  is  sure   to meet  with friends wheiever she 9;oes.  - Tourists   Today.  Mr.' Benj.     C.

A meeting was held last Saturday at the Nugget Hall for the  purpose of discussing' the advisability of nominating a candidate  for the Provincial House.  Mr. Green, chairman, opened  the meeting and after discussion  the excutive were desirous of postponing the nomination of a can- ���  didate, or formation of a platform  until such a time as other of the  parties had come into the field.  The frieuds of Mr. John Kirkland,  who was an aspirant for the nomination, were opposed to this and the  question being put to a vote resulted in the nomination of Mr.  Kirkland as the Labor Candidate  to represent the distiict.

' ( There is somewhere the story of a  crystal stream whose waters flow forever   over   rocks   made   red  with   human blood.   And, although-this stream  has flowed'on and on for ages, it cannot wash away the crimson stain, for a  martyr here gave up his life, and,his  blood remains as an eternal    witness  j    to the truth.   And men approach this  r _ vtream, it is said, and clasp each other's 'hands above    the    blood-stained  \    vocks and renew their vows to heaven.  This strange story has',its fulfilment  -    bow im our Memorial Day, when rc-  ,    ngion   and  patriotism  clasp  hands  a-  !    fcove the "graves of the departed her-  |    ��es, North and South, and renew their  j    vows  to   God and  man. *  To-day  we  ��� p)act    the garlands on the graves of  ,��he soldiers who  gave their lives for  ���ur eowitry, and it is well we do, for  there  are   throngs  of  people* coming  daily, to our shores from over the seas  >'who d* not know the matchless price  , paid for our liberty, and who do not  know the rule of this land to be "The  \\mtA wfll go before you."  We bow reverently at the graves of  Ah silont army, whose'lives still speak  lo u oi sacrifice and triumph. We  nme mot to look for scars and wounds.  . As nature in' this* springtime hastens  ^ lo ,k*al' the blemishes of winter, so  gentle 'time vhas covered rthe sorrows  ���ad sns of forty years ago, and there  aises over all tlie glory of divine leadership, for, "the Lord will go before  j��u, aad the God of Israel will be your  ���eargaard."  The nan who examines the blade of  pass trill see the plan of God written  then.   The man who studies the hist-  ��iy ol the past will see tlie divine plan  ' Miffilitiop with precision and grace.and  - *y*\\ arrer doubt that God leads the in-  0rl9��al and the nation.

We  ������joy the liberty purchased for us by  ���fee patriots of former days.   We take  up the work prepared for us by those  who bare finished their journey.   We  possess the heritage of Christian citi-  -onehip purchased by the blood of fallen  beroes.    We dig in one mountain be-  niM there is in it the precious gold;  Ml another, and find the diamonds, for  God  attracts   us   by   His   treasures.  Wow. these  all   are  the   leadings  of  ike Lord, though they seem so natural.  The Lord will go before you then ;  aot in His dazzling form of majesty  aor by a voice of thunder from the  iky, but by the beauty of his truth repealed in His Word; by His immediate and divine influence, which we-often think is of. ourselves; by the grandeur of Christian manhood; by the  iweetness of forgiveness, by the  Innnity'of His love; by all things good  ind beautiful which can remind us of  our Heavenly Father. He goes before  as always if we love Him, unfolding  with uns.een hands the map of our live3  *nd seeing that we fill in the parts  accessary to completeness^ Yes, He  poes before us even in His death of  jacrifice, as the soldiers whom we honor to-day went before us preparing the  glorious way.

If, then, there is to be a  glorious past, in family or in nation,  tallowing these days in wh <:n we live,  we must see that the present is full  of the means of defence. We must see  lhat we have a surplus of confidence!  in men and of faith in God to make  op for the man who has none. 'For  Every ignorant man wh'o lands upon  Dur shores yuu must add a little to your  tnowledge and influence to balance the  (icales  toward, the   right.    For,    every  murder or other awful crime such as  have been coni.nuiod in the last few  days in Russia you must increase your  righteousness as much as possible. For  the doubting, tlie faltering and the discouraged we need men of strong faith  who will work out joyfully the great  decrees of Providence. Columbanus  once asked his friend Deicolus, "Why  are you always smiling ?" To this the  other *" replied, "Because no one can  take my God from mc." ,  We rejoice in this ��� our ,quiet confidence in God, which secures to us a  settled past and a glorious future. We  are glad to hear to-day this voice which  in the incident of the text was spoken  to God's people when in slavery in  Babylon, "Do not hurry, take your  time, do your work well; you are safe,  for the Lord will go before you, and  the God of Israel will be your rearguard."

Alden. in Rural World.  . __!  |  The Quietness Too Much For   Him.,  A West'Philadelphia druggist   who  recently became'  the  proud  father  of  his first baby was called to Baltimore  the other day on a business trip, says  The   Philadelphia   Record.'    Early, in,  tlie afternoon the telephone bell in his *  home rang and his wife answered the  call.     Hubby was at the other end in  Baltimore.    "It seemed so funny not  to # hear 'the  baby  crying,"  came   the  voice over the  wire, "that I couldn't  stand it any longer.    Can't you bring,,  him to the 'phone so I can hear him?"  Wifey   woke   the   child   up   out   of 'a '  sound sleep and he very accommodatingly began to bawl at the top of his  Hngs into the receiver, while his mother held him in her arms.      This continued  until  the  baby    had    cried 8c  cents   worth   over   the     long-distance  wire, when    the    happy   father   rang  off. y  For Stockmen.'  Food Value of Dried Vegetables.  '   One of the most remarkable peculiarities of the lower organisms," as exhibited in seeds    and other vegetable  bodies, is the fact that they are capable  of withstanding desiccation    for very  considerable periods without losing capacity'for'germination    and development.   The vitalized   crystalloids    and  colloids   which   possess   the  power   of  assimilation    ani metabolism    appear  capable of having.all uncombined water  removed by evaporation without undergoing molecular disruption by the loss  of their combined' water.. They    appear to retain the combined water much  as crystals retain water of crystallization. If the ordinary drying of seeds,  corms, rhizomes, and bulbs does not destroy  the  integrity    of  their    protoplasm or alter the availability of   their  stored-up albumen, starch or sugar, it  would appaftr that they>  should retain  all their nutritive value, and that the  same should hold true of most, if not  all; vegetables used for food by man as  well as it does for forage crops preserved by drying. _ ,  .Tit, is curious that the desiccation of  culinary vegetables should be so much  neglected, nowadays    in view    of the  universal use of dried fruits from prehistoric times and the practice of dry-  iag such  vegetables as  the  pumpkin,  in vogue among early New Engenders,  in  evidence of which    the shiny  pumpkin poles    are still _ to  be seen  hanging on hooks in the ceiling in front  of the fireplace of many an old homestead.   Experiments made if Germany,  and more recently in California, have  demonstrated that desiccated vegetables  suffer no loss of nutriment, and that  they remain savory and wholesome.  Here is a splendid opportunity for  the utilization and conservation of po-'  tatoes, beets, parsnips, cabbage and the  like at the season of their greatest  abundance and in years of overproduction, whereby .there may be added to  the regular supply a line of familiar  food concentrated so as to��� admit of  economic transportation for army rations and for those who. cannot afford  such fresh vegetables out of season.  While it may not pay to can such vegetables as we have mentioned, it would  be a boon to many if they were put on  the market dried.  Do not try to make a specialty of  wool and mutton at the same time. The  best muton breeds are not the kind  of sheep for producing the; choice  graded of wool.r The size of tlie sheep  does not affect its production of wool.  The heaviest fleeces 'come from the  merino, which is the smallest breed .of  sheep now'known.    -  , If farmers were as ,careful and systematic  in the 'management    of  their  herds as the breeders  of pure breeds    ���  are with their cattle much better re-   '  suits would be,secured from ordinary  stock.

The .dairy  sire# must have  within him  the same and indeed more dairy prepotency than the cow, or else he is a  , costly failure.  ' Dairy    prepotency    and    beef   prc-  potency# are  qualities  which   move  in  diametrically opposite  directions.'   No  man ever  developed dairy qualities in  the coming offspring by breeding,  to  strong beef  heredity,  nor vice  versa.  Yet, there is not a so-called dual-purpose   Shorthorn   or Red ''Poll  bull   in  'existence which does not show    clear  ��nd unmistakable beef heredity ,in both  Form   and   pedigree.    If  he   begets   a  jood milker she is a sport, and in four  pases out of five as a rule she will not  in   turn   produce   profitable     milkers.,  But even if the cow would breed towards    daixy   quality,   if   well   mated, _  ivherewill we go to find a| dual-pur-'  pose sire with sufficient dairy heredity  n him to reinforce the desired tendency  >n   the,cow? ^Looked  at  either as  a  matter of breeding science or for pro-  Stable dairy results, the breeding, for;  dual-purpose  is, .we  believe,   a  myth,  which no well posted dairy farmer 'can  ifford to  indulge in, for- reasons that  tie can spend his money and time to'  much larger purpose and profit.  The Sugar Trade Journal says that  it least four by-products can be extracted from sugar beet pulp���alcohol  ���n fine quality; an important acid-much  n demand for'use in the arts; the finest 'quality of glue, and an excellent  grade of charcoal.     ,  I Strawberry, rust is shown by spots  Dn the leaves.

See how  Feed and Care of Chicks.  So many complaints come to me  about young chicks dying from some  mysterious cause that I take this opportunity to give my method of feeding  and caring for them, as I have had 30  years' experience in poultry raising.  While my method may not suit all, I  have been very successful with it myself. I have fed all kinds of feed in as  many forms and ways as I could invent, and found that it is absolutely  necessary that you feed the food in ai)  near a naluinl slate as possible. Don't  feed too much, for if you do it will become sour anil foul from the chicks  tramping on it, and if they are fed bour  food they will get indigestion; which  as only a Iiuie longer road to dcatn. i  believe that indigestion kills more  chicks than any oilier cause, or at least  this li;..-, been my experience. The  causes arc t'l.iny lhat bung on indiges-  l.on, an ! ... .mot be explained 111 tlie  eonliiio 11 this article, for what is the  canse v., 11 one is not the cause with  aiiuiiii'i Rich food fed too soon after  ah l'Ij it.un; sour quarters; too much  lo'i.i and not enough giit; not enough  pure water before them all the time;  ciaik, damp tbroodcrs or pens will kill  the ruggcclcst chicks.  I have had women tell me the pasl  season that they lost from 150 to 50c  young chicks, and ask me the reason  why. Frpm all I could gather from  their rcnj&rks, I conclude the trouble  was indigestion. Il requires constant  watchfulness 'to raise chicks and make  them profitable. I have found that lo  mix the different grains and seeds  makes the ideal food for both chicks  and fowl. The larger grains, such as  corn, wheat, buckwheat, etc., must he  ground coarse and then mixed with the  finer grains and seeds for young chicks.  If chicks are kept warm and dry, fed  Some Dual-Purpose' Facts. ,  The foundation objection to the dual-  purpose idea for dairy purposes is that  such cattle are not prepotent, in tlie  transmission of dairy capacity to their  progeny. The instances of, such cows  as are so often cited to us as convincing proof of the,soundness of the idea,,  are, in .fact, no proof at all that it is  a practicable thing to breed such cattle  to a profitable average from the dairy  standpoint.  Mr.'1 Frank D. Ward of Batavia, N.  Y., is writing some very instructive *  articles to tl% Tribune Farmer on  "Types in Breeding." We take the  following extract from the issue of  April 16 to show his'experience in this  desire to secure a.cow that shall bring  the largest profit both for milk and  beef and still breed true to such mixed  purpose.  Mr. Ward says:  "But how does the general or dual-  purpose animal'compare with those  bred for a special purpose, and which  will return the greatest profit during  their life on the farm? I well remember some animals I owned whose merit  Impressed met forcibly. One of them  was a ,pure bred Shorthorn cow, Hope  VI., which was bred on the farm, and  was kept there until she was sold at  about ten years of age. She was one  Df the most perfect types of a beef  :ow we ever owned, weighing over sixteen hundred pounds, low down and  broad, with a back like a table, and at  the same time she was a most extraordinary milker. Some 1'dea of her  merit as a beef cow may be gained  from the fact that she won first prize  is aged cow in the Shorthorn class at  Dne of the largest fairs in the state, fe^k jffiffiiffii  md at the same fair the next day she ^ZJJ&ri^TBi  won  sweepstakes  prize  as  best  dairy    '-     ��� ������-      tow of any age or breed, in both instances having a large class of competitors. But Hope VI. never bred a  calf that was even an ordinary milker;  and as to her dairy qualities, she was  simply a "sport," without any power  Df reproducing the dairy qualities she  Dossessed. In the spVing of 1873 I  bought two heifers which were typical  specimens of dual-purpose cows; they  were high grade Shorthorns, and were  the choice from two good herds in  Livingston county. I have owned a  ?ood many cows, and some good ones,  but I never owned two cows that would  give as many pounds of milk or butter  in a year as they did. They were in  my herd eleven years, but during that  time I was able to breed only one  neifer from either of those cows that  was even up to the average as a milk  cow, but that was one of the very best  cows I ever owned, and she was sired  by a pure Shorthorn bull.  "She was kept in my herd until she  failed to  breed  at  sixteen  years   old.  but she never bred a calf that was of  my value in the dairy.    If I am asked       It Is estimated that there are 30,000  to explain  as to  these cows,  I  must J pupils la the agricultural schools of the  say  they   were    other    instances     of i United States,  "sports"���cows    in    which    abnormal  In Kansas the state    banks    along  contain  123,042,878 in deposits.  ,   .Brazil  will exhibit 500 varieties of"  serpents at the Paris display in 1900.  ,   It ls estimated that there are 30,000  pupils In the agricultural schools ot tha  United Stateo. * -  For !the first time In a.decade every  board oi^be Presbyterian shiirch.- begins the fiscal year without debt.'

'And-he bowed to  the jury  and the  coroner and withdrew from the witness-  , box in his turn.  The next witness was Mrs. Wharles,  who had been seen letting the deceased  man out of the doctor's house, and talking to him in the little porch. The lady  was very nervous, but very dignified, and  ehe gave her evidence clearly, though  with a not unbecoming shyness struggling with her dignity.  "I believe you had some conversation  with the deceased as he left your husband's house, Mrs.1 Wharles?" said the  eoroner. ' r  "Yes."  , "Do you agree with your husband's  view of him?" /  "Not altogether.

Dr. Wharles had made a mistake. lie  know it in a moment, as he looked round  him, with quick, observant eye, and noted  that every face was full of pity for the  unhappy,man,who, with the tender woman's hands clinging about him, vwas  low the center of interest and compas  iion to everyone in court.  There were, on the other hand, angn  .jlanccs cast at Dr. Whailes and his wife  .ind unpleasant remaiks were muttered  itt his hearing by some of the .sturdj  Lancashire men. The doctor was moi\  lopular .among the women of tihe neigh  borhood than he was with their husband-  md brothers, and his own conduct wa'  lot so impeccable that he could afford  vibh impunity, to diaw attention to thf  mistakes of others.  There  was  a   fine  ringing  sound,  of  course, in his challenge on behalf of an  injured woman, as his protest purported  to he.   But Lottie Darwen;- though not  well known 'in    the   neighborhood    oi  Blackdale, had not been altogether  un  known" there;   and   there - were jpeoph  .-.resent in court, who remembered   the  lighty, beauty.. Who had tried so hard  while staying at the house of her broth  ���*r-in-law,  to marry  Sir Hugh  Darwen  ind had then succeeded in marrying hi-  .ousin Astley.

Lady Mytanwy insisted upon his corn-  ins .home with them; and Astley, not  Mrry to put off the lonely return to the  gaunt halls ^.nd echoing dreariness - of  The Haigh, accepted the invitation.  It was on the following day, early in  the afternoon, that Norma, who kept indoors for fear of meeting Astley, and,  with a view to"kecping a watch on the  Raggetta' cottage, saw two smiling faces  fct the gate, and recognized, ��� with tears  in her own eyes at tho sight, two visilois  from The Hall,-in the.persons of,iSadio  Brown and "Jack" Scorton. '  She opened the door to them herself;  but they would not (M?me in; she must  come out with them, they said. ,  "Poor child! - She's been, cry ing!" shid  Sadie, with a caressing gesture.  "No,  she hasn't,"  said  Norma.    "At  lea,st, she hadn't till she saw you."  '"What!

An indescribable sensation of  horror and suspense was gaming ground  in the eourt. Mrs. Wharles was the only  person who appeared to be unaffected by  it.  There was a. little pause when she had  ceased speaking; and the coroner, with  a hasty glance at the other lady, waved  Mrs.  you  i. Wharles aside with a quick: "Thank  , tWnk you. That will do."  The doctor's wife sailed to her seat,  and was tenderly soothed by her husband after the oideal she ''had gone  through. And, amid a state of extreme  tension, and a silence in which the  'scratch of a mouse would have been  heard, Astley rose up and went into the  witness-box.  The feeling of everyone in court underwent a change when this unhappy gentleman, worn and weak from wounds and  Illness, with the interest of a whispered  - romance about him, stood ,up and faced  his questioners. He was not bold or  -fluent, like the doctor: he was not hesitating and inaudible, like the ladies. He  was just a man pu��-sued by ill-fortune,  making a -dogged British stand against  it, and showing as little sign as might  be of the feelings within.  Sympathy and respect, as well as 'intense interest, were excited by his look,  bis bearing, his simple, soldierly speech.  "You knew the deceased1, I understand, Sir Astley?" asked the coroner,'  with an indescribable change in! his tone  to sympathetic deference.  "No. I never saw him alive. But I  fcnew of him. And I expected to see him.  t was anxious to do so."  "May I ask���excuse me for putting  the question bluntly���may I ask if there  waa any ill-feeling between you and this  man?"  "There was none���on my side certainly. If I had met him earlier there might  Gave been: but actually there was none."  Dead pause for a moment.  "It is a very painful thing to have to  oak, Sir Astley," went on the coroner, in-  otinctively lowering his voice, "bu7; it has  been said that the deceased was an early  admirer of your lato wife���''  Astley bowed' his head in assent.  "And that you were'certainly, at one  time, violently and naturally resentful  ��n that account," added the coroner  quickly. "I may take it that it is not  true te assert, as has been assorted, that  rou still harbored resentment against  this man?"  "It���is���not���true," said Astley slowly. And as he spoke, he reeled slightly.  "Is that all?" he asked.  "That is all, thn nk you.   I am sorry���"  Astley had already left the box. As  ho did so, Dr. Wharles stood up in his  place,  "Pardon mo one moment, Mr. Coroner," said he, in the ringing voice that  carried his words to the farthest end of  There was a murmur of sympathy and  assent among the bystanders, and the  florid doctor grew redder still.   It took  him, however, only a few moments to re  cover himself. He always knew how wit n  clear, sonorous voice and burly, impos  ing figure, to make himself the central  figure of any picture.    With a depreoa  tory wave of the hand, and an apolo  getic glance at the coroner, whom everybody else had forgotten in 'the excitement of this episode, he said:  "Pardon me, your lordship. I have  to apologize to Mr. Coroner for my intei-  ruption, and to Sir Astley and this lady  for my impulsive words. But I was carried away by my feelings; I could not  but say a word on behalf of an unhappy  lady .who is not here to take her own  part, and'who, whatever her foibles may  be, does not deserve to be left to starve."  The sensation produced hy these last  words, to which' the doctor gave an impressive ring, exceeded anything that had  boea experienced in the court during that  eventful morning.  Although there 'was a large section  among the hearers who sympathized still  with Sir Astley and the unhappy lady  who held the position of his wife, there  was not, of course, wanting another section who sided no less vehemently with  the doctor, and applauded his boldness  In daring to stand up for the absent woman in defiance of the two great men o,f  the neighborhood,' the Earl and Sir Ast-  tey Darwen.

"If Sir Astley Darwen,'* said ho, his  thin, old man's voice making itself heard  nearly as well as the doctor's more resonant tones, "has really left to starve  myone who bears his name, that* person  has certainly forfeited every right to  beartit."  Astley, Who had been with diificulty  restrained, by Norma and other friends,  [ram making a rush at the doctor, now  ipdke.  "Thank you; Lord Wyersdale," he said.  'You do me no more than justice. The  itory which Dr. Wharles has thought  proper to drag to light in this public  nanner is too pitiful for such discussion,  t will only say that I would never allow  inyono who had borne my name, rightfully or "wrongfully, to be in want. And  if Dr. Wharles or any other man asserts  !he contraiy, he lies."  Again Miore was a moment's dead si-  'ence, vfiale Astley, with flashing eyes  ind firmly' compressed lips, shot a glance  it the doctor which was a challenge.  That gentleman, however, felt'that he  lad gone far enough, if not too far; for,  f he had brought pain and some amount  >f public disgrace upon Astley, in audi  the court.    "But there is a correction   -ion ito the load of suspicion which he  made you miserable!  "^Miserable! Oh, no, just the reverse.  I was glad, 'delighted, to see your kind,  bright faces." ��� i  ' ,!There, Jack! isn't she nice?", said  Sadie, turning with a smile toher young  companion, who seemed rather nervous,  and who blushed more than Norma had  previously seen him do.  "Of course She's nice," said Jack la-,  conically.  "Now put on your hat, there's a dear,  sgood' creature,  and  come  out  with  us.  We've got something to say to you; at  least, one of us has," said Sadie, with an  air of importance.        <' ���    _  Norma did as she was told, and was  soon walking up the lane between her  two companions, who seemed ' over-  wiiclmed-by^some fact or secret which  they appealed to hesitate to divulge.  "You begfn, Sadie," said Jack at last,  leaning forward to thiow a mysterious  glance across 'the intcivening Norma at  the face of the bright American girl. -.  "Well, then, you must know that Jack  has something very important to say to  you, and that he wants me to open the  matter for him," began Sadie gravely.  "I'm to tell you that what he is going to  say is 'serious, and is ihe result of car-  nest thought, and that he hopes you  won't treat it frivolously because^ he  happens to bo rather young."  "I'm,not so very young," put in Jack  with irritation. "I shall be nineteen in,  a week or two, which is, I fancy, 'about  the age of���of you, too, isn't it?"  "I'm nineteen,"said Norma, wondering what was coming next.  "Well, then, now ,1 think I've    said  enough^ and you can speak for yourself,  Jack," said Sadie, as she suddenly turned  and left the two together.  'Norma turned round, too.  "What docs she mean?" asked she in  amazement.   "Miss Brown���"���  , But1 Sadie walked on quickly, and Jack  put a detaining hand on Norma's arm.  "Never mind her for a minute," said he  earnestly. "It was all arrangedi between  us that she should go away like that.  She's a real good sort, Sadie, and a dear  girl. They wanted me to marry her, you  know, because she's ever so rich; but we  didn't take to each other, at least not. in  that way. And so we made a compact  to help each other in other ways."  Norma began to smile.  "You seem very good friends," said  she.  "Oh, we are," said Jack. "Look at the  way she's helped me this morning! I  shouldn't have liked to come here by  myself; I should have been afraid you'd  send down a message that you couldn't  see anybody," he went on, his bright face  glowing with such sympathy and shy  kindness that the ready tears sprang  again-to her eyes as she looked at him.  "There, don't cry! Oh, don't, don't! I  was there yesterday, you know. Sadie  and I both were, and she had to hold me  down when that beastly cad Wharles  said what he did! It was a shame, an  infernal, awful Bhame, and this morning  I met him in the street and told him  what I thought of him. I did really:  you ask .Sadie!"  Norma felt, divided between an inclination to laugh and an inclination to cry.  'fYou shouldn't do that," said she.   "It  doesn't do any good, you know."-*  "It does do good to let him see what  gentlemen think of a man who tells  lies!" retorted Jack robustly. "But anyhow, that's not what I came here to tell  you. You won't mind my speaking to  you? You won't think I'm impertinent,  or���" '  "Indeed I know you couldn't he that."  "Well, then, I'll tell you what is the  greatest wish of my heart.   Sadie knows,  and she thinks my idea splendid.   I do  hope you will too."  -%hat idea?"  "Well,* it's this.    It's horrid  for you  and for Sir Astley, too, to  be in this  plight through this horrible Wharles woman's sister."  "Oh, don't talk about it, please."  "I won't, I won't more than I can help.  Look here, I've thought of a way out of  it.   I know Sir Astley's a good fellow,  and a nice fellow, and 1 know you're fond  of each other.    But what's the use of  that, if there's another woman in the  way?   Now what I propose is that you  should��marry me���"  "Marry .you!" echoed Norma aghast.  "Yeo, yen'," said he earnestly.   "I know  ��s sudden, this idea of mine, hut it's a  good one, isn't it?"  "A g���good one!" stammered Norma.  "Yes.   Then you could snap your fingers at 'tliem all, and show them that  there was a rush for you, don't you see?  And Sir Aattey, well, poor fellow, I'm  awfully sorry for him.   Still, it will be  betiter for him to know you're provided  for, won't it?   I'm sure he'd rather. And  then, if ever tkis woman dice*, h�� ea^  Biarry Myianwy, you know. She's awfully sweet on him, she really is."  "Wiry, you take my breath away,"  said Norma, still uncertain whether to  smile or to cry; for in contrast with tho  wildness of the lad's suggestion, there  was an earnestness, a breezy, enthusiastic sincerity in his manner which warned  her that she must not hurt his foelings  'by any appearance of treating his offer  flghtly. "Don't you know, don't you understand," she said gently, "that I love  Astley, that I married him, as he mar-  fled me, believing'him to be free; and  that'I can't look upon myself as anything but his wife now?" -'  "Well then, why don't you go hack  and live at The Haigh?" said Jack with  youthful straightforwardness. "Why  out because you feel you can't as long  us cms woman's alive? Oh, I know the  feeling!" he added with confidential sympathy. "You feel that you're his wife  in the sight of heaven. But what's the  use of being* his wife in the sight of heaven, as long as you can't be in the'sight  of earth?" <  ' At that hi tint putting of the case Not-  ma felt her inclination to laugh get the  better of her wish to cry, and she smiled.  "Look here," she said gently, "it's.of  no use to argue the matter with me. I'm  *r wo"in, you know, and must have my  ywn way. I thank you more than I can  say for you* kindness, and it makes me  "feel happier <b know that there are such  nice people'ln the world as you and that  dear girl over there. But I couldn't  think of���of such a thing, I couldn't really. It's absurd, you know. For Astley  is my husband���oh yes, he is. And nothing could alter that feeling of mine, even  if it's a feeling only, and not a fact."  ' "Well, I think it's a great pity you  won't listen to reason, and Sadie will  think so, too," said he soberly,oand with  a most thoughtful expression of face.  "But remember this; if you change your  mind you've, only got to hold up your  finger, and I'll fly to you like a bird. I  Bhould love to! You'll remember that,  won't you?"  '"Oh, ye3,, I'll   rememberl that,"   said  _ Norma, her face wreathing in smiles  in  ' spite of herself.   "And now let's go and  run after Miss Brown., I'm sure she'll  be miserable at being so long away from  you."  As Jack accompanied her, with a very  grave faee, he said suddenly: "It isn't because I'm so young,'is it? That wouldn't  be fair, you know, because you're nearly  as young yourself!"  Norma assured him that that had  nothing whatever to do with it, and then  they came up with Sadie, at whom Jack  shook his head woefully.  "She wouldn't hear of it, of course!"  cried the American at once. "I told you  so, Jack, didn't I?"  /'It's nothing to boast about," said he  sulkily. "And ladies generally say 'no'  the first time. ^1 sha'n't lose heait."  Sadie began to laugh, but Noima broke  in quite gravely: > ^ -  "It's beautiful to have such friends as  you both. It makes me feel much happier." "    *"''  And then they both hastened to. glue  themselves to her, one on one ���Bide, aiid  one on the other, and to say cheering  and comforting things to her out of the  kinAsess of their hearts, both talking at  oncc( for the most part, in a veiy cheering and cheerful manner."'  They came to see her again and again  in the course of'the next few1 days, during which Norma lived quietly at the cottage and kept carefully out of Astley's  way.  Whether be knew of her whereabouts  or not she was not sure, until one day  she saw him walking slowly down- tho  lane and glancing up wistfully at her  window.  Her heart leapt up. She wanted-to go  out to him, hut'she struggled with herself, feeling that it was best for hoth  that they" should for the present remain  altogether apart. '���  And then T>he very thing happened, in  her sight, before her eyes, that she had  been constantly dreading: Dr. Wharles  drove up, on one of his so frequent visits  ,to Raggett's cottage, and he and Astley  came face to facet  Norma saw from her window that tho  two men - exchanged a few fierce -.words;  a taunt from the doctor, no doubt intended as a provocation, began it; it was  followed by a sharp retort from Astley.  Fearing that the latter would not be able  to keep his temper, Norma rushed out  , into the lane, and was by Astley's side,  holding his arm, before the exchange of  another word between the men. '  He was so much astonished, moved,  overwhelmed, by the -unexpected appearance of the woman he loved, that at once  he allowed himself to he drawn a step or  *two back. And the doctor, thinking discretion desirable, went on into the cottage.  Norma kept her hold on Astley's ana,  and led him away down the lane.  ' "Where did you spring from?" asked  Astley, who was flushed and delighted  at this meeting.  "Oh, the cottage where I'm staying."  "I know.    I've kept religiously away  until this morning, when I thought I deserved a peep at you, and came along  here on the chance."  "Well, now I want you to take my advice, and I should like a promise thai  you will to begin with."  "Well?"  "I want y*U to leave the) Haigh for a  little while. It's bad to risk these meetings'with thai man."        x  *'I believe you're right.   But I don't  want to go away and leave you here." <  "I'm* not goisg to stay here long.   I've  got something to find out before I go."  "You won't tell mc what it is?"  "I'd rather not.   I may he quite wrong,  you see, and then I should only raise  false hopes."  "What io that fellow doing at Raggett's cottage?"  "How should I know? Somebody ill  fciere, I suppose."  them.   It seems she has run into deflw. ;  So I've sent her five hundred pounds to  clear that off, and I'm going to allow her ,  five hundred a year.   X, couldn't be expected to do more than that, could I?"  "Certainly not," said Norma thoughtfully. "Is she still ill?" i -     ,  "They say so."    '  They were standing under, the wall andr  the     overhanging     and     still     leafless   ,  Vanches. ^ '  "Good-bye," said Norma softly/ (.'  Astley hesitated. Looking benind him,  he saw that they were out of sight^ of  the cottages. 1  "You'llikiss D^e. won't you?" said he. 35  She flung herself into his arms.  "Good-bye, good-bje, God bless you  and keep you safe!" whispeied she biok-  enly.  A' minute later ho was hurrying, back  through the plantation; and slie, with  her eyes still dim, was leturning to the  cottage.        ���>��� i >  On  the  following day  Norma   knew  that Astley had left The. Haigh, and the  next thing she learned was that the in-   _  quest on Tom" Rogeison's body had been ---  again adjourned. ~      l  CHAPTER XX. f        ,, ''  When she knew that Astley had left '  the neighborhood, Norma found herself,  more free in her movements.   She gen- *  erally took a walk in the morning, and t  another in    tho    afternoon, frequently,  passing through the plantation and the    '  grounds of The Haigh on her way.  .  - -  '  Astley had left a key .to all the privates ,  pates with her;  and although she  had  told him, with a shudder, that she could   -  never go through the plantation where J  she had made the ghastly discovery 'of y  Rogerson's dead body, she subsequently ,���  rot the better of her feeling on this''mat- >'"  ter, and chose this walk more often than  any other. , >   ' ,  -Full as her thoughts were frout men* --  D* till night of the wish to clear all sui��>    -  (To be Continued.)

STORY OF THE MURDERS AT BELGRADE.  Struggle. in  the  Dark���Conspirators  Unsuccessful at the Beginning���  1      Compelled a    Servant    to  Lead  I      Them to the King and Queen.  r-  X  \4  J ���>'  I'*,  4 ,Bclgrade, June 13.���The following is  ' a narrative of the Servian revolution  % given, by men who took an active part  in it:���Army officers to the'number  of ninety having formed a project of  ft revolt, among I hem being delegates  Ironi almost every garrison in Scrvia  nnd the majority of the officers of the  6lh Regiment, Lieutenant-Colonel Mis-  eliicli invited his comrades on Wednesday evening at n  o'clock to  meet in  .* the lialimmgdcn garden, and there, the  immediate carrying out of,,lhc intended deed was organized.  At r.4o"a.ni. the officers in the eight  groups went to the' Konak, the royal  palace. Each had a cue and especial  instructions regarding his part in the  revolution. Jin the Konak Palace the  revolutionaries had two important partisans in the King's body guard���Col.  ��� Maschin, Queen Draga's cousin (not  her brother-in-law,'as previously stated), and the King's personal adjutant,  ,-lLietit. Naumovics. The two officers  of the high military academy appealed at the appointed hour, at 2 a.m., at  the gate'of the Konak, where the  King's    adjutant,   Panajotovitch,   who  ' ,was in the conspiracy, handed them the  keys to the garden gate, which is always kept locked. First stepping'be-  ifore the, guard,at the Konak, one of  ',the two'officers called: "Throw down  your armsl"   -  ,* A fight-.ensued, with shooting on  both sides, in* which several persons  .were wounded.. The revolutionaries  then entered the front garden without  hindrance and reached the courtyard of old.Konak, where Lieut. Naumovics was awaiting.     He opened the  ' lock of the iron door, leading to the  front room on the first floor. By this  it was seen that the Konak was carefully closed and that danger was sus-'  pected. .Hurrying upstairs (o the first  floor, the. revolting officers, attracted  the attention of the palace attendants  and the royal couple by the noise of  shooting.  .Lieut. Petrovitch, alarmed by'the unwanted hubbub, hurried forward, a  drawa revolver in one hand and in the  L other a' sword. "What do you want ?"  he cried. < ^  "Show us where the King and ..the  Queen are," came the reply. '  ' "Back,", cried Petrovitch. and at the  same moment a ball stretched him *on  .the ground. The revolutionaries pressed forward, when suddenly the electric  Jight went out. All stood in darkness.  In the greatest excitement, and feeling  their    way,    the    revolutionaries  .climbed the  stairs  and  got into    the  ��� dark ante-room to the King's apart-  >ment. - Here they found candles and lit  -them.    This  seemingly slight circum-  ��� stance was decisive to the whole ac-  :iion. Without light they could not  .'have found the victims, who fled from  ���their sleeping apartment through corri-  ��� dors and numerous rooms, and might  ,2iavc'escaped; but part of the offi-  .cers, with burning candles, and others  with pistols, commenced to search for  ;the royal couple.   In breathless haste  .the    conspirators    ran    through    the  irooms, opened wardrobes, and looked  behind curtains, but in vain.    In  the  -ante-room connecting the corridor between the old and new Konak, the sergeant of the gendarmes was sleeping.  Awakening, he stepped before the revolutionaries,  who  felled  him.  At last Queen Draga's servant was  'found.  -He wounded Captain   Dimmi-  ���trevic   severely,   but   was   spared,   because he was needed in finding the fleeing couple-   Indeed, this servant showed the officers where King Alexander  .and Queen Draga had gone to conceal  themselves.    When  he  had  told   this  he was shot.    Col. Maschin now? joined  the  revolutionists   and   led    them  back to the sleeping apartment, where  fthe Ktngfs adjutant tried to hinder the  search.  He shot at Lieut. Naumovics,  who  fell  dead.    The other killed  the  adjutant.   After a long search, a small  door leading into an alcove was discovered, but was found locked. It was  broken in with an axe, and here  the  royal  couple   were  found  in   undress.  The older officers first intended forcing  the   King  to    abdicate,   but   the  young officers  were  in  no  mood  to  hold   back,   and    shot    at   the   royal  couple.   Nobody knows, in the excitement, who fired the first shot, but it  is generally said it was Lieut.  Kis��ic.\  After the murder  King Alexander's  body was found entirely covered with  blood, while that of Queen Draga was  absolutely torn by bullets.      The  report that the bodies were thrown out  of a  window into the garden  is    un-  irue.     The young officers intended to  do  so,  but  Colonel  Maschin prevented it, exclaimed, "That would be barbarous."   All the servants of the royal  :oup!e fled when the first shots were  heard,   with   the   exception   of   Queen  Draga's servant, who was found dead.  At twelve minutes past 2 all was over.  Colonel Maschin issued from the gate  of the Konak,    around  which    great  crowds had    collected,    and made . a  speech,  saying :   "We  have    now  destroyed  the  dynasty of  the  Ubreno-  witchs   and have got rid of the    dis-  honqrable woman who was the Kings  evil "spirit.    Long live Servia." '    #  The people responded : "Long live  the army."  Almost simultaneously with the butchery in the palace, die troops-endeav  ored to arrest ah the relatives of the  Queen and those Ministers whom the  conspirators disliked. Two brothers  of the Queen, Lieut.-Cols. Nikola and  Nikodern Lunjcvics, were speedily'seized and escorted by' a detachment of  troops from their dwelling to the guard  room of the divisional commander.  They were evidently' not suspicious of  their doom, and were lighting cigarettes when they were shot dead _ by  eight soldiers. Premier Markovics,  Gen. 'Pavlovitc, Minister of War, and  M. Todorovics, Minister of, the Interior, were all, as they attempted to de-  ,ferid  themselves from arrest,  shot by  ne'froops." The two former were Rilled and tiie last named is just alive tonight.  The autopsy held has proved that the  ,latc King received thirty shot wounds,  many of them deadly. Queen Draga  had numerous shot and sabre wounds,  and it is alleged thai her body was  torn in a barbaric fashion. The appearance of the royal apartments is indescribable. , The doors and floors are  shattered, and the ruins drenched with  blood.  Shortly after midnight the bodies.of  lhe dead King and Queen .were carried  to their last resting-place. It was a  pitiful sight. Al! day long the victims  were reposing in rough coffins, and had  Iain exposed to the gaze of those who  had killed them and to the privileged  of the curious. There were unpleasant  evidences of the public sentiment  against the late royal couple.    _ Some  , persons even spat on the remains.  The' sisters and nieces of the  late Queen, who had been arrested by  the military authorities, were expelled  from the country.  WAITERS ON STRIKE. ,   .  �� ��� .

Pckin, June 13.���The question of  the establishment of Chinese customs  offices at Dalny and on the Russian  frontier, of the leased territory, is practically settled. It is an important matter, because in the absence of customs  stations China has been losing considerable revenue directly by the admission of dutiable goods through  leased territory into Manchuria, duty  irec, and indirectly by the injury done to  Ncwchwang by this differential treatment. Russia had the right, under the  Manchuria railway convention of 1898,  to appoint a customs officer, reporting  direct to1 the Pekin Government, and  uncontrolled by the maritime customs,  and had nominated Protasief, the ex-  Finance Secretary of Port Arthur, in  that capacity. She now consents t��  adopt tlie German Kiaochau system,  under which the commissioner is always a German, appointed by Sir Robert Hart, and approved by the Germans. All the staff, however, though  Germans, are controlled by the maritime customs.  ' While granting the shadow, however, Russia retains the substance, for  she nominates the commissioner, Pro-  tasieff, above mentioned. Moreover,  his staff will be Russians, and, though  they will all nominally be controlled  by the maritime'customs, the revenues  will be paid into the Russo-Chinese  Bany, which, except at Newchwang,  enjoys a monopoly of the foreign  banking of Manchuri.i.

THE VAST GRAIN   EIELDS OF  t       1   MANITOBA.   -  Nearly Four Million Acres Under  Crop���Solving the Farm Help  Problem���Crop Conditions Never  Better.  Winnipeg, June 15.���The, rapid expansion of western Canada is mirror-  id in ,thc crop bulletin issued by the  Department of Agriculture of Mani-  .oba. It shows an immense increase  n acreage, satisfactory growth of the  iairying industry and greater interest in mixed farming on the part of  :he western agriculturists. This'year  ���here' arc ,3.757,173 'icrcs under crop  is compared with 2,039,940 last year;  af this 2,442,873 acres' are under wheat,  is'compared with -',039,940 last year.  555,131 are under oats, as compared  with 726.069, and lo llax 55,000 acres  ire devoted as compared with 22,005  In 1902. ' There are similar, increases  n all coarse grains with the exception  Df barley, which shows a t decrease of  {,253 acres." This is .accounted for by  ihe fact that-many farmers have gone  largely into .the growing of spelts.  Expansion is shown in all districts ^of  lhe Province. ' Increased population  accounts for the increase in the iicw-  tr sections and increased "acreage in  the older. East winter the farmers  fattened 13,986 head of cattle and carried through 126,846 milch cows. Of  !hc cattle about two-thirds were used  for home consumption. ' The number  of milch cows has been increased since  die advent of spring, and indications  point to a profitable dairying" season  ind a large output of butter. .. Just  lbout one half as many extra male farm  aands will be rentiircd to-garner this  teason's harvest as last year,'the rea-  ion being that farmers arc profiting  ay the experience of other years, and  aave engaged help before it is really  ���equired; 5,158 extra men will satisfy  ihe demand. Already 11,744 are em-  sloyed. ' Female help is still greatly  .n demand; altogether it is estimated  :hat 3,960 could be employed, and 3,-  153 are now wanted.  . Crops never looked better at this  teason of the year than now." Rcn>ort��  from correspondents in aH sections of  Ihe ,'Province are to the effect that  grains were sown under favorable conditions and the weather since has been  ill that could be desired. From the  lime that farmersucommence'd' spring  vork the seeding weather has prevail-  jd.' It was .warm, but, not too hot  tor 'work by men _'and teams. The  result, has been .a perfect seed bed and  work .well done. ��� The rains that commenced -in the second week of May  were general all over the Province,  md reports of correspondents on crop  prospects on June 1 are repeated many  limes in the brief expression^ "Never  setter."

By A. P. Doble.  HEN   Lemuel Cadbury   pro-'  w  posed that the village ol  Slocum should hold a jubilee celebration, the younger  citizens were .delighted with  the idea. Lemuel was head, clerk in  Ketchup's grocery, and was looked up to  as a rising young man. Besides being  the owner of a rolling bass voice, he had  quite a, turn for composing poetry, and  many a time Ids thoughts were on higher "tihihgs as he weighed out lard or mea-  , sured molasses. His "Lines on the Death  of Hannah 'Mclnnis" were considered  reiy touching, and sorrow '^relatives  tried <bo enlist bis sympathies when they  ���wanted obituaries composed for tho do-  panted. , ��� J  For some months Slocum had been en-  gying exceptional musical advantages in  e person of Professor Valentine Water-  bouse, Who came once a week from tlie  city of Gridiron, fourteen^miles distant,  to iraftruiot a few select pupils in vocal  and instrumental nuisic. As lii3 clas3was  Surge enough to necessitate Ins stopping  ���,over .night jnJSlocum, his services were  ���it onoe engaged to taain those \vho wore  going to 'take part in the jubilee celebration. '  The professor was aiyold young man  ot short staturo, whose struggles with  poverty and a callous ! public had left  mm lean and ^prematurely bald, lie  readily took upon'himself the duty offered him by <a delegation of Slocumitea  headed by Lcm Cud bury, and practice  ���waa fixed for tho following Wednesday  evening. Notices were seat round to  , everybody in town" and the,result was a  round-up of. all tlio people in Slocum  who sang'or UiougOit they could. The  first thing io bo done waa to flx the date  tor the celebration. The professor  thought tluut two months would give ample tmie to prepare tho music thorough-  w; as it was getting on towaid tlie end of  I Oatober, the first week in January would  'be about rigibt. And this date was decided on,' The professor spoke'blandly  of several fine patriotic choruses and  part-songs which would take well and  be thoroughly up to date, and announced  thiat.at the next meeting he would sls-  aign'the parts and begin practice in earnest. ,      �� -  But this was more easily said than  done. When he caane to assign the parts  .be found that oil the men were basses  ���nd ail the women insisted on'singing  ���oprano. la vain the professor assured  tiie ladies thai the second part was fully  as important in chorus singing as the  treble. Mis. Keiohup, fhe grocer's wife,  informed him that she would*"sing second to ndbody," and the 'others followed  liar lead. And the men were either too'  lazy or too timid to take a note higher  tbaa D flat. At length the professor  waied wroth. ,He told tiiemhe would  try every voice, and that if' they did  not take the parts assigned them he  would wash his hands of the whole affair. - l     /  Mnally, out of. the forty-two female  voices he selected about seventeen or  eighteen to sing alto, but as they had  had no, previous experience he had to  beach theizn .their parts by the sheer  force of repetition. His success with the  other parts was not so , encouraging.  There was not a true tenor among the  whole fourteen male �� voices. Somehow  the tenors of Slocum had fought shy of  the jubilee. But the professor did not  despair.  -At the next me/ting it was decided  that an ode should ��e composed, to be  get to music, in honor of the town of  Slocum, and this delightful duty waa assigned to Lemuel, as having the moat in-  tenrate relations with the poetic muse.  Next practice night Lemuel produced an  ode ol eleven verses,' beginning as follows:  * *-  |   "Eair Slocum, dearest spot on earth,  I       Success to Thee and Thine!  ,   iWe greet Thee, City of our birth,  And pledge Thee now in wine I"   < ���  This was considered a very, fine effort,  and quite the best thing he had hitherto  , done. Slocum was as yet only a town of  Gome eighteen hundred inhabitants, but  of course it would grow. But a peculiar  and serious difficulty arose. Those who  hod temperance principles objected to.  pledging Slocum or any other place "in  wine," and insisted that these sentiments  must be changed or they would withdraw. This looked seiioui, so Lemuel,  sought the privacy, of hi*, chamber and  after another seance with the muse produced tlie following, fiom which they  could choose:  "Pair Slocum, may Thy woes grow less,  Thy blessings nevci -fail!  IWe proudly drink to Thy success  In Pierce's Ginger Ale!"  cr  "O Slocum, none than Thee more fair,  May Thy glories never fadel    '  IWe pledge Thee in u brimming bowl  Of sparkling Lemonade!"  Everyone felt thu1 Lemuel had done  what ho could to conciliate all parties;  but there was so much -wrangling as to  which versos to omit and which "to retain that finally, on the suggestion of  ^enezer Young, who was something of  fivfa,g, they compromised by singing the  whole thing, which amounted to 'thirteen  verses���alas! unlucky number I  However, barring these minor matters,  everything went well. The practices  wese well attended, the weekly meetings  bore their usual crop of love affairs, and  everybody was delighted. The accompanist was pretty Sadie Pendicott, the  daughter,  vied 'oy everyone, Jail. Professor Water-  house set the ode 'to music. He was  possessed of little originality, and tho  tune was a delightful combination of  "The ,Star-Spangled Banner" and "Rock  of Ages;" but it won all hearts, and the  ladies declared it '���awfully" nice." " -,��� ~  As the' day fixed for the celebration  drew near the 'professor began to grow  anxious. No tenois had as yet put in  an appearance. Names were mentioned  of�� several who sangY tenor, and these  were sought out by the professor and his  minions; but in spite of being cajoled and  ooaxed and bribed-with prominent parta  in the celebration they kept strictly out  act the game. There was one man in. particular ,that had been angled for to no  purpose. This was no less a person than  Aaron Pendicott, Mayor ofy Slocuan. He  iras the fortunate possessor of a rkfti  tenor voice, which time seemed tormako  jaore mellow. It was certain*that if  {hey could only get Aaron won over to  the good cause several others would iol-t  low in his train. They would bo sure to  ret Deacon LiUimug, who sang in a sort  k falsetto; but, as Lcm said, "it would  pass'all right in a crowd." Then there'  Iras Dave Stivers, a coffin-maker by  Irade, who had a wonderful voice, but  pot the*least idea of tune. If he could  be put alongside of someone who could  keep Irim in the right key ho was warranted to go like a tiombone. And there  were two or three others who wero sure  to join once the ice was broken. "��� But the  jucsfcion was how to get Aaron Pcndi-  jott. *EvcTy, means under the sun was  iricd except that of actually carrying  him to the practice hall: us'Aaron was  I. man who stood over six feet two in his  itockincfB and weighed [in tho neighborhood of two, hundred pounds, this plan  wasi left as a last resort.  First Lemuel Cadbivry aud Ehenezer  Voung, the schoolmaster, formed themselves into a deputation and waited upon  him, but Aaron said he had no time "to  bother with any of these new lilts;, he  left them for the young folks." Several  rimes Professor Waterhouse had broached  the subject in the front parlor, backed  up, of course, by���the fair Sadie, but,at  last he was so sat upon that he thought  It safest to drop the subject. Then tlie  [oldies thought tney might be able to prevail, and' a deputation headed by Mrs.  Ketchup and Miss Prinks, the milliner,  tought him out at his place of business,  the Slocum Carriage Works. All their  blandishments were wasted. Aaron was  obdurate. ' .,  Ail this time the eyentful day was  drawing nearer. The singers weie all"  well up in their parts, and the Slocum  Band had commenced to practice with  them. ' Bills were posted far and near,  and notices were printed in all the leading papeTs.K It had been .decided at an  early date "that all the" ladies jwere to  wear white, and most of them were getting their gowns ready. But as yet there  was no tenor. The professor and his  committee were becoming desperate. If  tenors could not be obtained before next  practice night the jubilee must fall  through. To try tossing choruses without tenors was like trying to make  bricks without straw. ' ,  Great needs make men rise to great oc-  saeions. It was decided to make one  Bupreme appeal to the . flinty-hearted  Aaron, and not to stop wrestling with  him until he consented to sing. With  the courage of desperate men, Professor  Waterhouse, with his two accomplices,  Lam and Ehenezer, bearded the carriage-  maker an his den, and after a two hours'  struggle Aaron consented to sing. In  fact, he gave in as the only way out.  Once having given his promise to help,  Aaron went into the celebration with all  his might. Every night he and tho other  delinquent tenors whom he had persuaded to join held practices with Miss Sadie  in the front parlor, with such good results that when the final practice arrived  they had their part perfect.  But if the professor believed that his  difficulties were" all over he was sadly  mistaken. When he tried to arrange the  altos behind the sopranos on the^sitagc  Mrs. Ketchup and Miss Prinks, who were  getting new white silk gowns, < strongly  objected. If .they were going to be hidden from the view of the audience they  might as well stop at home. Here they  had faithfully attended every practice  and had consented to sing alto much'  against then* will, just to oblige the professor, and now they were going to be  shoved back out of sight, while that  horrid Mrs. Tizzaid and that bold minx  of a Naylor girl were put right out m  tho front! They wouldn't stand it! In  vain poor Professor Waterhouse used  all the arts of flattery at his command.  They flatly refused to sing unless they  could be seen. To say that they had  the professor in a tight place is but putting it genteelly. They must be pacified.  It would never do to have any hitch, and  the celebration only two nights away.  He and" Lemuel set the machinery of  their mighty brains in motion and  evolved a plan. They would have tho  singers seated in tiers upon the pUtfoim.  There would.be four rows of scats, one  aibove another, of which tho two in front  would be filled by the sopranos and altos  in their white gowns, while behind t'lie'm  and forming a background would be the  tenors aud basses. Tliis would'afford every singer on opportunity to see and bo  seen. At a very simall cost the seats  could he put together just for tho eventful evening, and everyone thought that  when the curtain rose the effect would  be fine indeed. To Deacon Lillimug -vyas  assigned the duty of getting tho scats  made at once, so that they could be in  place the next evening for the final rehearsal, and others of the men were told  off to decorate the old Town Hall and  get it into such form as would do honor  to the great occasion. Every .town and  village has its jaek-knife carpenter, and  Slocum was no exception. The deacon  decided to givo the carpentering job to  Daniel Hemphill, a very deserving man  who was always so hard up that it was  a charity to put anything in his way.  He was not chosen because of his skill as  Mayor's      daughter,      and      a3      she  gracefully  took her place at the piano .      .   i. v t. v.  miring eyes in her d rcotion; but after >* carpenter, but because he was such a  practice it was the professor who accom-   WW ma�� ��Uld.th? f^her 4 mne. -8maU  panied her homo, poor Lemuel feeling  that ho hod not the ghost of a chance  against so much genius.  ��������� Lemuel as poet was admired and en*  aliildren. True, ho had never been known  to do a satisfactory job in his life, but  aro we not told that "He that giveth to  thejjoor lendeth to the Lord"?  All the next day a mighty upheaval  was going on in the old Town Hall,  which, by the way, had been the scene  ���if a chicken-Show a couple of days be-  /.re. After the sawdust had been removed by the barrel, the floor was  scraped and swept and scrubbed with all  the energy that Slocum could muster.  But all the'wuter'of Joidan and all the  soap of Slocum could never remove tho  odor which hung like incenso throughout  its ancient precincts. That had become  as much a part of the Town Hall as tha  very walls. Small boys could be seen,  ^urrying in all diiectdous, borrowing  flags and bunting from various of Hie  Slocum merchants, reluctant to lend, but  not daring to refuse. Business was,, almost suspended, as nearly all the men in  the village were tacking up mottoes and  inscriptions, such as "God Bless Our Native Town!" "Slocum, We Rise to Greet  Ihee!" and* others. Daniel, the godly  parent of the nine small oltspiing, luul  made therfour rows of seats, and theie  Ihey stood 'on the platform with tho  Iresh look of new lumber which wo��  ijuite inviting.  The final rehearsal waa a triumph. Not  i single flaw marred its course. The professor asked the men on the .two rear  rows "to sit as softly r.s possible," as the  seats, being only tcinpoiary, might not  be quite secure.   This was a very nece3-  lary precaution, as all tlie basses and  lenora were heavily built men, and it.  iros best 'to be on the safe side.  Long looked for comes at last!   .The  hibilee night had arrived.   Long before  tho doors of the Town Hall wero opened  srowds waited in orderly tows on the  adewalk.   People from all the neighbor*  Ing towns within a radius of  twenty -  niles had 'come to do" honor to Slocum.  The building was packed, and hundreds  iirere turned away disappointed.   Profes-  ��or Waterhouse felt that his 'hour of  triumph had at last arrived, and he cavorted  excitedly around, giving orders  and seeing to things in general.; When  Lemuel thought of his ode he saw Faaue  just .within his grasp.    And what-pen  :an describe  the costumes of the performers on that eventful night in Slo-  smn's history?    All the ladies-were in,  white,  except  Miss Clancy, the  dress-'  maker, who had been so busy making the  new gowns of the other, Slocum ladies  that she did not get her own finished.  Bhe wore the waist, an elaborate crcaJ  tion, but had to he satisfied to appear in  an old 'black skirt. But as she sat among  the altos this,"of course, would not be  noticed.   Every gentleman that was not  fortunate enough to possess a black coat  borrowed one, and it is safe to say that  every dress suit in Slocum was on duty  at the celebration.   All were faultless" as  tov collars,  ties   and   coats;   but  there  (vera various delinquencies asvto footgear.   They fondly imagined that, owing  to the arrangement of the seats,'their  feet -would not be ^visible, so moat of  ,bhem wore just whatever happened to  feel comfortable. There was a wonderful  assortment  of old overshoes, cowhides  piiltless of blacking, and boots whose  Jmtched soles and well-.ventilated uppers,  bespoke the economy' of   their owners.  Bbenezer Young, having been troubled  fori some time .with corns, wore an elaborate pair of crimson plush slippers embroidered  on  the 'toes with gold  sunflowers, i They had been the gift of his  best girl the previous Christmas, and besides being gorgeous were comfortable.  '���  Precisely at half-past eight the curtain  rose upon .the four tiers of smiling and  telf-satisfied    singers.      The   .processor  raised his baton amid the hush that per-  traded ^he throng.   Tlie singers rose as  ttne' man and began the ode.   It took  K>me time to sing  through the whole,  thirteen verses, and When, they finished  they sat down amid applause which was  ieaiening.   Whether it was the applause  that turned their heads it is impossible  to say, but they forgot to "sit softly'"  Above the clapping ,of hands was heard  *' sound like the cracking of the roof on  n winter's night_ magnified many times.  Ihen  followed an appalling crash.    It  seemed to the audience that a forest of  black sleeves and white cuffs, surmount-  sd by sheets' of musicj rose in the air;  then the basses and tenors disappeared  backwards, madly plunging.    AJas! for  the fell results of the number thirteen!  Ihe seats had given way.   Tlie confusion  was frightful.   Ehenezer 5Toung, who sat  it the  end, tried  to  stop   himself by.  slutching wildly at some of the 'bunting  irhriah decorated 'the wings.     It    only  served, however, to hinder his exit a moment or two while the audience bad a  slurred view of crimson  and gold-embroidered feet pawing the air.   The arms  nnd legs of Deacon Lillimug struck out  in  a vain endeavor to  seue a nearby  post, like ihe tendrils of a honeysuckle  seeking a support to cling to.  The effect upon the audience was like  .hat of on electiic shock. Some were'  ilarmed, gome indignant, some when they  thought of the array of feet so ittthless-  y exposed to view, laughed till they  :ried. Old Mrs. Scroggie, who was very  deaf and had not been inside the hall  for over twenty yeais, took it all as a  matter of course, thinking it sonic new  way of celebrating jubilees.  But more than the dignity of some of  the singers was huit. Young Mr. Styles,  I rising young dentist, was so badly  aurfc that a doctor had to be summoned  >n to the stage. Aaron Pendicott stittck  uis head on a rusty nail in a piece of  board which the deserving Daniel had  left lying around loose, and seven of the  unlucky jubilce-celebrators were carried  to their homes on stretchers.  Very soon after daylight the next  morning a tall and portly figure, armed  with a snake-whip, might have been seen  waiting outside Daniel Hemphill's door.  A.n hour or so later his patience was rewarded, and when Daniel started out he  was met by Aaron* Pendicott, who administered as severe a drubbing as a much  less godly man than Daniel might have  looked for. Aaron then made a visit to  Lemuel Cadbury, with the result that  Lemuel, the poet of Slocum, was incapa-  sitatcd for business for the space of a  week. Rumor hns it that lie also held  in interview with Professor' Valentine  Waterhouse, with the result that that  gentleman has never since been seen in  ���slocum.   Aaron felt  that he had  been  saseiy misled and" humiliated by these  three gentlemen,'and took tho law into  his own hands to obtain satisfaction.  Even to this day it is not wise to allude  in his presence to 'the Slocum jubilee,  which was his last appearance.       t ,  Did Burns Write" "Coiuin' thro'  'the Rye?"      '  1' < London "Truth"." ' ��'  Mr. Carruthers Gould/ in his clever  caricature concerning a recent election  which lesulted in tlie Liberal candidate  ���'Comin' Thro' the Rye," 'has, J see,  adopted the reading that the "Rye" wus  a cornfield. It has gencially been undei-  stood that the llye lefeiicd to wao the  rivulet in Ayrshire wheie Burns and'his  boy friends teased the girls who were  wading through the stieam with their  skirts tucked up, the damsels preferiing  to he kissed rather than to allow their  petticoats to diop into the water. But,  although the fact is little known, there  is authority for Mr. Gould's reading, at  any rate if the lines scratched on a pane  of glass at Mituchlinc bo genuinely by  Burns.    They  run:  "Gin a body kiss a body comin' through  the gmin,  Need  a  body  grudge  a body  what's a  i     body's am.  When, however, the song was first heard  In London at a pantomime in 1795, it began, "If a body meet a body going to the  fair." But, although I should not like to  say so in the picsence of a Scotsman,  there has always, I fancy, been a doubt  whether the lines are by Burns at all.  f Far-Reaching.

' The last word In the utilization of waste  material seems to have been said by a  correspondent' of The American Machin-  at, says The Literary Digest, who writes  as follows to that paper > about a New  .Xork factory ~for the transformation of  Md tin cans Into various useful products.'  "I waa much i surprised and greatly inter-  sated a, few days since, when shown  :hrough a certain establishment near New  fork City, to find that the 'raw material'  ised consisted'1 chiefly of empty fruit and  vegetable cans rescued "by the cartload  from the dumps of the city. I had supposed,' up to that time, that the only purpose for*which such material was suited  was food for goats or to be attached to  the tails of unfortunate canines. The  principal products of this < establishment,  which is a foundry, are window-sash  weights, elevator weights and ballast for  boats. The weight castings are very hard,  and, when, struck with a hammer, ring  like steel., About the only tool which can  be usad for removing sprue*-and fins la  the hammer, as a cold chisel or file will  not stand up to the work. The fracturo  Df the round sash weights is smooth, and  ���hows crystals radiating from the centre  like spokes of a wheel. After delivery at  the foundry the cans are first piled Into  i large Iron grating, located under a  Iheet-Tron hood, which terminates In a  smokestack. They are sprinkled liberally  with crude oil, which is set on fire.   This  Process consumes the labels, loosens tha  lrt and melts <fce solder, which falls  through the grating, is collected, washed  ind melted, cast into Ingots and sold to  ke used again. Some of the cans, which  have simply lapped and soldered joints,  Belt apart' completely; these are sorted  ��ut and the sheets forming the shells ara  itralghtened out and bound into bundles  io be Bold to trunkmakers, who utilize  Jbem for protecting the corners of Saratoga trunks. They are also bought by  mtton manufacturers, who stamp from  ihem the disks used in cloth-covered but-,  tons. The remainder of the cans, being  nachlne-made, do not come apart. Thesa  ire loaded Into large carts, taken to tha  tharglng-floor on an elevator and dumped  nto the cupola. The cupola Is fed with  eoke and cans In alternation. There ls  occasionally .an old wash-boiler or a bun-  He of tln-rooflng used, but cans form  :he bulk_of the material The cans are so  light that some of, them are carried out  ��t the top of the stack by the force of  the blast, and a large screen has been  irranged to prevent the pieces from fall-  ng on tho roof. If among those readers  ��f The American Machinist to whom  :hese facts are new there are any who  lave occasion to use the elevators in the  ikyscrapers of New York, I can imagine  moh wondering how many empty cans it  took to make the weights which balance  :he car in which they ride."  Dangers From Fresh Paint.  House painting and decorating are Just  now in evidence, and the season Is not  without its dangers as well as Inconveni-  Micea to those who are compelled by ne-  :essity or slender means to stop at home  luring tho progress. Headache, says Tho  London Lancet, is a common experience  it this lime. Posbibly the oil with which  cho palntor mixes his pigments is sutfl-  :lent to cause nausea, although there  leems to bo lltlo doubt that minute q'uali-  :ics of load aic inhaled also People havo  ��oen known to suftor fiom a severo attack of colic after silting in a loom for a  .'ow hours a day In which thero wore  "canvnscs" covcied with whlto lead and  i drying oil. Ai lists, again, havo been  tttacked with paralysis owing to the ac-  Uon of tho oil p.tlnt. People Misceptlblo  to tho action of the pols,on should make a  itienuous endeavor to leave the house  Juilng Its painting and decoration, while  :hoso who are compelled to lemuln should  live In the frosli air aa much as possible,  tn the sleeping room a veiy useful pre-  tautlon ls to leave the washing basin full  >t clean water, or, better btlll, milk, during the night. In tho morning a greasy  .11m will bo found on tlio surface of tho  water. Milk Is a well-known absorbent  >f odors, and appeals, to act moro effectu-  illy than water for this pui pose, for after  tx.posuro in a freshly pulntcd house tho  nllk will be found to smell quite distinctly of paint. Our contemporary does not  mention the practice in some localities of  aanglng up a bunch of straw or hay dipped In water. By thjs means a larger wet  surface is exposed to tho air, with correspondingly Increased absorbent powers.  -London Telegraph.

Cats In "Warsaw have not a very txisy  time at present, and for the reason that '  their skins are in greater demand than  [ they have ever been before. ��� Soma enter* _?  I prising furriers of that city, It is said, re-' '  cently discovered that the skins of cats  could ba dyed so that they would closely  resemble  costly  furs,   and,   being determined  to  profit  by  the  discovery,   they  waged a campaign against cats, and soon    ,  secured  a large  number  of skins.    Tho  market price of a cat's skin ranges now ^��  from ten to fifteen cents, but it will soon -.  be much higher, as il is becoming dally  more difficult to catch any cats in War-y  saw.    In   regard   to   the   dyed   skins,   a  Vienna Journal says that they have be.en ,'"  palmed off on many persons as vaiuabla  *��r.(        ,  ' ���     ,      r  Will  Send  Delegates.  Upwards of 100 Chambers of Commerce  throughout tho empire, says The London,,  Times, have already notifled their inten-'  tion to  send  delegates   to  the  congress  which is to bo held at Montreal in Aug- '<���  ust.    In a preliminary circular concern-    '  Ing the arrangements for the gathering,  the London Chamber of Commerce state  that the   question  of the business    programme has assumed gi eater importance  even than on previous occasions, first, because  this is the  first congiess    outside  .  the United  Kingdom,  and,  secondly, because Canada has taken the lead amongst  the Independent States under the Crown  to   offer preferential    tieatment    to   the  mother countiy, whilst tho South African  Customs Union Is about to follow in the  same direction.   Tho council of the Chamber have therefore decided, with a view  co ofllcially   instructing    their delegates  on  buch    questions    as  the    preferential '  tariffs  and  other    economic  maitcis  on  which   opinions   may  differ,    to  hold  on  Thursday a joint meeting  of the chamber, of tho Oiganlzlng Committee of the  Congress,   and   of    the   late   New   York  delegation,  for  tho purpose  of considering these points. .  Army Manoeuvres in Winter.  Every winter tho Swiss army executes  manoeuvres to accustom the troops to  conditions of war during cold and snow.  In these exercises tho Infantry are prodded with skis, and with this curious  footgear the men aro able to progress at  the rate of five to six miles an hour.  When it is desired to make a rapid advance, the Laplanders, mounted on skis,  use their reindeer as a means of traction.  The Scandinavians adopted the Idea, but1  substituted the horse for the reindeer;  and now the Swiss, as shown in the Illustration, have adopted the same plan.  The men on skis grasp a rope, which ls  attached to the saddle, o,nd this rope is  made easily detachable In case of an accident. The sport ls now practised a  good deal In Switzerland, where races  are held every winter. Last year tho  champion of this form oC sport, a Swedish officer, covered 11% miles In two  hours and a half, equal to 16% mil'es an  hour. When the condition of the snow  has been favorable, as much as 18% miles  an hour has been att'ilned. One advantage' of this mode of progression is  that as each mounted man will be ablo  to draw three men on skis, the mounted  troops will bo more readily supported by  tho infantry.
