Some  few of these vessels were captured from  the Chinese during tho late war, notably  the Chlnyen, a scond-elass battleship of  7,u35 tons, the Heiyen and Salyen, coast-  defence vessels, and the torpedo-boat  Fukuryu. The greater part of tho licet  has. The Outlook states, been built in  Britain, Europe or tho United States AU  the vessels are perfectly equipped and tho  personnel is all thai could be desired.  For the Farmer.  wi  ���1;  1  -1  rt  V  :k  echo the voices of tlie prophets-   They  are, spoken   by  John,  the   herald    of  Jesus, the    Messiah,   who    confirmed  them by His teaching, and their truth  is proved in human experience.  1  Note the terms,    "Life" means the  perfect possession ol  every power of'  human nature.    This includes the will  to use each power.   To have a perfect  "     .body would be glorious, but none possesses it.   When Socrates'saw one that  seemed complete he cried. "Jove ! how  beautiful!"    Wc  have his  enthusiasm. .  More splendid is the life of the spirit  in man, and it is to ,this these words  refer.    Each   of  us  knows   some   one  /    ��dio possesses in rare,degree this life. '  Such  interpret  to   us   the  divine;   we  instinctively feel they are of God. "On  God  and  godlike   men 'we  build   our  trust"        But  even  these have  their  faults; only One has ever lived on earth  perfect in all things.   Imperfection, un-, ,  .    less righted, tends to death.   We can-  ,'    not stand still, we  arc ever  growing  ^better or worse.   How we fight against  the "downward tendency, seeking help  from such as we think can  help  us  Brow  better!  So we tie ourselves to  thc physician, the-teacher, the friend.  Is It not true that the best wish  of  your best moments is thfct you may  ,   become better ? And we have all found  that, beyond a certain point, there is  no,help in    Once there came  unto o,ur world a Perfect Man, "the  Son of  God,  with-power."  lie  gave  (Himself to the work of redeeming men  from death to life,  and, throiufi  His  spirit, He is^a constant Saviou-. "He  that believeth in the Son has everiist-  ing life."  "Believeth."    It means more    than  assent to the statement of the Gospel.  (Faith is willing self-surrender to God. I  iOnly thus can His vitality impart itself t  to us. 'This is possible for every one.  iThey are self-deceived who think otherwise.   All about us'are those ignor-  .< aal ���reak and hard pressed as you are. '  ��� wtefcWcause they open heart and mind  to Him, .are growing better.   Are not.  "they who refuse to do this"fools' and  blind? .'  . The" condition for every one is obedi-1  *Hce.     It is so in all relationships. To,  ��*?ect V   cure  the  physician 'must  be  obeyed, the teacher must be followed,  the friend honored, and if the Redeem- (  er is to  save from death to  life our  part is to honor, follow and obey. |  t And now note the alternative:���"He  that obeyeth not thc Son shall not  ��ee life; but the wrath of God abideth  on hitn." Perhaps you persuade yourself that this is a visionary statement  and are indifferent to it. Remember,  there is 'relationship between you and  God. He is your "heavenly Father."  God cannot be indifferent to you. You  are and always will be His child. Il  is the worst blunder one can make to  think that God is careless about him.  Do the words, "the wrath of God,''  seem cruel words? Nevertheless, c-iu  human relationships explain them. We  are more than inhabitants; we are citizens of New York, having certain.inherent rights and obligations. Its  laws are. the measure of these. If I  choose'to go contrary to these rules of  conduct and commit crime, the wrath  of the city, the penalty of infringement of law, is incurred. The convicted criminal is stilla cart of/New York.  The same conditions hold in the family life. Does it seem strange that tho  divine government is illustrated by  these analogies ? Remember, the laws  of God are not arbitrary, they are essential to life. Still, the problem faces  us. How can the God of love, ever be  wrathful toward his child? Well, undoubtedly, the Bible proclaims this, -ind  co does Nature. She works by law,  51H to the obedient is beneficial. El;c-  tricky carries y^ur messages and moves  tour cars, but disot�� ':cr and she kills  you. This is '.the,.-'��������, ming of applied  acjence. And in tli- .-.loral world the  same-principle holds'. - It is .thus in  friendship; refuse to love and honot  you may become perfect. Identify your  life with that of thc Son, love Him.  learn of Him, follow Him, and you  shall become like Him. There are only  three steps from earth to heaven���acts,  habits, character. These same steps  may lead downward to death. Which  is your chosen way? Let this truth  possess you;- let it make you brave,  hopeful, serious : Re men of God, living in His service, happy in His love*  and you shall master any sitpation���you  shall know life indeed.    Amen,  Age of Japanese Women,  The objection made by women to letting  their age be known is not approved by  the ladles of japan, who actually display  their cycle of years by the way in which  they arrange their hair.

The annual return moved for by Sir  Charles Dilko, showing thc comparative  ���tate of the fleets of the principal powers, was issued by the Admiralty. The  ' London Dally Express summarizes it as  follows :���  The   following   table   shows   the   total  number  of .vessels,   built   and   building,  to  the credit of each power :���  (��        ' Built.

In this class Groat Brl-  . tain has three first-class battleships, four  armored cruisers, three third-class  cruisers, four scouts, - fifteen destroyers,  and ten submarines ; France has one  armored cruiser, four destroyers, twenty-five torpedo-boats, and .eighteen submarines; Germany has one armored  cruiser, two third-class cruisers, and six  destroyers : while the United States has  five  first-class  battleships.'

In all breeds of poultry it is the largest females which will produce the larg  est offspring; hence if you want to in-  crease'-'the individual size of the flock  select eggs laid by, the largest ,hens.  The same rule holds good in regard to  egg-producing'qualities; if you want  better laying pullets select the eggs foi  setting from the best laying hens. It  pays to follow the laws of breeding,  and to use as much care in selecting  fowl as 'in buying fruit trees, farm implements or a horse.    ( <  ,    .

K XB     ,J       V  That is all,  As  to telopathy,  under which heading  might    be    classed^-  both    ghosts    and  dreams, Mr.  Lang says :���"I do believe,  with all students    of human nature, in  hallucinations of one,  of several,   or  of  all the senses.     But as to whether such  hallucinations, among the sane, are ever  caused by psychical Influences from the  minds of others, alive or dead, not communicated   through' the   ordinary   channels of sense, my mind is In a balance  ���f doubt.    It is a question of evidence."  Mr. Lang, In his latest book, "Dreams  and   Ghosts,"   has   brought   together- a  great many stories  as evidence  in  this  matter.    As to whether the evidence he  submits Is convincing,or not depends entirely upon the individual readers.     Mr.  Lang 1 himself does not declare  whether  he regards these stories as proof positive  or not.     He does not constitute bimself  ,as Judge or jury.     He is merely the attorney who submits his case on its merits. ,   He takes the position of one who  ��ys :��� -  "It may be'true and it may not be,  I tell the tale aa 'twas told to me."  Among other dream stories he tells is  the one about the dream vision of Prof.  VL.  V.  Hilprecht,   who  has  the  chair  of  tssyriology at the University   of Pemn-  Jb-lvanla.   The University had despatched  tn   expedition   to   explore   the   ruins   of  Babylon, and sketches of the objects discovered   had  been  sent  home.     Among  these were drawings of two small fragments of agate,   inscribed  with  characters.     One   Saturday   night    in  March.  1893,  Prof.   Hilprecht  had  wearied   himself with puzzling over these two fragments, which were supposed to be broken  pieces of finger rings.    He  was inclined  from the nature of the characters to date  them  about 170O-1140  B.  C;  and as   the  first  character of the  third line  of the-  first  fragment seemed  to  read   KIT,   he  guessed that it might stand for    Kuri>-  galzu, a king of that name. .  About midnight the professor, after  long and vain work over the Inscription,  went perplexed and weary of mind and!  body to bed. Then he tells of the following strange dream:  "A tall, thin priest, of the old pre-  Christian Nippur, about forty years oi!  age, clad in a simple abba, led me to the  treasure chamber of the temple, on its-  southeast side. He went with me into a.  small, low-celled room without windows,.  in which there was a large wooden chest,  while scraps ;of agate and lapis lazuli)  lay scattered on the floor. Here he-  addressed mo as follows:  " 'The two fragments, which you hav*  published separately, upon pages 22 and  26, belong together. They are not finger  rings, and their history is as follows:  " 'King Kurigalzu (about l350 B. C:>  onee sent to the templo of Bel, among-"  other articles of agate and lapis lazuli,  an inscribed votive cylinder of agata-.  Then the priest suddenly received t5ie  command to make for the statue of U10  god Nlbib a pair of earrings of aguta.  wo were in groat dismay, since tlnre  was no agate as raw material at linnd.  In order to execute tho command, tlitirn  was nothing for us to do but cut the  votive cylinder in three parts, thus n��Uc-  Ing threo rings, each of which contained  a portion of thc original Inscription. The  first two rings ssrved as earrings- for thc  staluo of the god; the two fragments'  which hatfo given you so.much {-.rouble  are parts of-them. If you-will-'put'the  two together you will have condrrautlon  of my words. But the third t-Ittgyo't  have not found yet, and you- never will  find It.'"  Tho professor awnke. boumlert o*it of  bod, as Mrs. Ifilpreclit. IcjUIIIoh, and w,-is  heard crying from his study, "It Is so.  It is so!"  Tho  professor vcrlli-d  his dream   next  day.   The Inscription ran thus, tho mining fragment b^lng restored', "by analogy  from many similar inscriptions:"  -  ,    To the god Nlhlb, child-  Or the god Bel,  His Lord  Kurlmiliiu,  Pontifcx ot tho god Bel  Has presented it.  But In tlie drawings tho fragments  were of different colors, so that a student working, on thc drawings would not  guess them to bo parts of one, cylinder.  Prof. Hilprecht, however, examined the'  two actual, fragments in the: imperial  museum at Constantinople. They lay In  two distinct cases, but when put together fitted. When cut asundor of old, In  Babylon, the white vein of;the; stone  showed on one fragment, the 'gray surface on the other.  Prof. Romaine Newbold, who publishes  this dream, explains that the ��� professor  had unconsciously reasoned out his facts,  the difference of color in the two pieces,  of agate disappearing in' the dream. The  professor had heard from Dr. Peters of  the expedition that a room had been dls-,  covered with fragments of a wooden box.  end chips of agate and lapis lazuli. Theu  sleeping mind "combined Its information,"-,  reasoned rightly from it, and threw it,  1 The recent rains have greatly improved thc crop outlook in this Province and the west. In the Province  of Quebec the prolonged drouth has  had a very unfavorable effect dn the  growth of hay and grain." In Ontario  Up to the first week of the month rain  was badly needed, but the moisture  that has come since that has greatly  improved the condition of the growing  'crops. ' In Manitoba and the west  there has been a steady improvement  .in crop conditions, and the present  outlook is exceedingly .promising-for  another bountiful ,harvest.  Sheep Prospects in Canada.  The Farmers' Advocate writes in respect to the sheep industry :���"Now ii  their opportunity"    (referring   to tht  flock owners)   "for selection and improvement,   so     as     to    be     ready  for ,   the     upward,    turn     of.    the  tide     when     it     comes.       Indeed,  it   appears    to    be   close    at    hand.  The demand for mutton continues to  grow,'and it is quite certain    tha't iti  limit will not be reached yet    awhile  Hence breeders may, we feel sure, look  forward with- confidence,"   It is quite  certain that Canadian breeders .will be  far better and larger customers for oui  stud rams when the demand for theii  : own stock is an increasing one. - - Thus  ,the'prospects for the demand    during  the coming season from    Canada art  probably better than they^have been foi  some "time past'.   Despite "all the .drawbacks which the slieep industry has to  contend with in- that colony,, it ranks  very  high amongst the different sections of the general agricultural interest, and bids fair to become quite as  important as it is at home.   No matter  what breeders of other varieties of live  stock may say, there is no question that  the -key to successful farming, is the  same abroad as at home, namely the  maintenance upon every holding of 9  flock of sheep, either breeding or otherwise, as the character of the   holding  may determine.   The profit and' benefit  arising from sheep breeding and feeding is certainly larger and1 more gen^  eral than from any other variety of  live stock.���Farmer and Stockbreeder, London, Eng.  Broody Hens;  Ver^ soon broody hens will' be getting rather plentiful in many yards,  and a few hints as to the best method'  of dealing with them.will no doubt  be acceptable.   In the first place; it is  perfectly   na;tur^l   for   the   hens   of  incubating varieties to develop their  natural propensities during the warm  season whenever a batch of eggs is  laid.    This  propensity may be   ��ry  persistent or the reverse, according to  the race to which the fowls belong.  Cochins,    Brahmas,    Indian     Game,  'Malays, Langshans, and their cresses  or descendants, such as the Buff Orpingtons,  Buff  Rocks,    Buff  Wyan-  dottes, etc., are very   keen   and frequent sitters   during warm wcath;r,  and it takes more to break them off  the fit than birds with a milder tendency to incubate.   Birds 'which have  got rather    fat and    heavy   are also  rather difficult to break off, and it is  a rule,with those who keep incubating  varieties to keep  them only in  fair  bodily condition   during warm  weather.   They will lay all the 'better in  consequence.    Whenever .3. hen   lie-  comes  broody she    should    be kept  away from the nest or roosting house,  and for preference put in a coop/with,  a square bottom in the middle of the  yard. ; The spars should be at least  two inches    from    the ground,  and  about  two  and    one-quarter .; inches  between the spars./When a hen is  placed inside she> does not feel in a  comfortable position. Her ^overpowering tendency is to sit, and to sit soft,  while she is forced to: stand, and to  stand upon a hard and uncomfortable surface.    She quickly 'tires of it,  and in her continued anxiety- to  more comfqrfoutside the broody desire is forgotten.   One feverish desire  conquers,another.  This proceeding is  not in the least degree cruel, and'the  bird quickly returns to laying again.  , During the   period   of confincniiiit  food should be supplied sparingly/and  of a kind which    docs   riot heat or  stimulate.

'���  Extreme delicacy of the lines of tho  flngor tips, not woiikncfls, but threadlike .  cushions, especially of the third flngcrn,  donote an artistic talent. When studying finger tips, or phulangology, as it is  called, tho length of tho tips above tho  ball of tho flngor, must be noted. Unusual longth shows that a woman covets  power, and she usually, gets it...  , Very Jolly and gay at times Is tho woman with tho tips, of her lirst fingers  showing lines extending fiom ono &ldo '  to the other, absolutely unbroken, cxeopt  by the cushion. The pointed or tapering first finger usually indicates one who  is quick to grasp an idea and recoptlve  of new impressions. - *  The pointed second finger, with fine  lines, shows one decidedly optimistic ; if  very pointed, frivolous, fond of gossip,  and on whom sorrows make but little  impression. She is as irresponsible as a.  butterfly.  The fourth finger, if ringed with lines  near thc tip, and quite pointed, indicates  one quick at repartee, witty and diplomatic. If the linger is smooth, or not  lined with marks, or It it fs square-tipped .  and rather heavy, the possessor Is fond of  praise,, nor is flattery unwelcome.  The square little finger shows one who  would rather do a thing herself than try  to show others. She finds it difficult to  put the knowledge into verbal expression <  and is prone to say the wrong thing at  the wrong 'time.  ' That woman loves luxury and is most  extravagant whose thumbs show straight  markings.

The mount of Jupiter, under the first  finger, If wen developed, Indicates noble  ambition and love of nature, and foretells a happy marriage.  From finger nails also is character foretold. Small, round nails are associated  with an affectionate nature ; filbert nails  denote refinement ; narrow bails fncllne  to mischief; broad nails are indicative  of a gentle, dependent nature ; crooked  nails belong to qtufefe-tempereel people;  long nails to those of a temporizing disposition, one who would hesitate "to  name the day." These are nails of persons who hate scenes.  Pink   nails   show   indotence,   red  nails  gtmi temper, and nails- abnormally pale.   .  a  weakness-  that   fs  both  physical  and  mental.

O'Connor tells the following  Iti his gossip of Mainly About People:���  Ia the circle whose members make a living out of dealing In diamonds, there la  a keen  Interest Just 'now  In the operation about  to be performed at Amsterdam on the "Excelsior." which Is claimed to be not only the largest diamond yet  Sound In  South Africa,  but-the largest  stone  of  its   kind   in   the  world.    So  it  may be (writes my Indian correspondent)  an appropriate moment to recall the romantic  history  of  the  Dom   Pedro -diamond,  about which there was so  much  excitement a few years ago.    When the  unfortunate Emperor Dom Pedro was deported   from   Brazil   his   groat   diamond  soon came into the private market.    An  attempt was made to sell it to tho King  ���then Prince of Wales���who did not like  to havo anything to do with the painful  business.    Then attention was turned to  India,   where' the   well-known   financier,  Mr. Jacobs  of Simla and Calcutta  (tho  original   by   the   way,   of  Marlon  Crawford's "Mr. Isaacs"), took tho matter in  hand.    Evontually   Jacobs  arranged   tho  sale of the stone to the Nizam of Hyderabad for  forty-six ' lakhs,  which  if  tho  rupee wero at Kb nominal value, represents ���,- a sum of, ��4GO,000. -  The  Nizam deposited twenty-three lakh3 with tho bank  which  held  possession   of  the   diamond,  the   deal   having   been -carried   out   by  means of a glass replica and-the expert  description . given   by  Mr.. Jacobs.    But  there's many a slip between a dear and a  diamond, and^one happened here, the interruption   coming   from   a   slip   of   an  Irish boy, Sir Dennis Fltzpatrlck, at that  time   British. Resident   at   tho   ancient  Court of Hyderabad.    It Is the business  of the1 British Resident in a Native State  to   advise���and  'tacitly    to    control���the  ohief of the State; and Sir Dennis went  to;the Nizam,  asked him if he  realized  that there would probably, on the general prospects, be a famine In  Hyderabad  the   following .'season,   and   if   he. could  imagine what his starving subjects would  do   to   him   if  they   knew   he   had Just  squandered   forty-six   lakhs   on   another  diamond for his turban.  Seldom had such  a forcible argument been used in official  or diplomatic affairs.   Shuddering at the  thought   of   scimitars   at   his   throat   or  hand-bombs 1 flung  up  into   his' howdah,  the alarmed Nizam sent off  at  once to  Jacobs to quash the bargain.    Quite naturally the latter refused to bo c<&t off  thus peremptorily,   but  In   a   few  days'  afterwards -he took steamer away, from  Calcutta.    This raised an alarm,  onae-  county of the twentyrthree lakhs deposited,  and  Jacobs was arrested before th��  vessel "got clear of the Hooghly.    After  a long trial,*in which nil the Bar leaders-  in India were engaged,  the matter waer  sottled by Jacobs returning the twenty-  three lakhs-to the Nizam, and receiving  ��5,000 to  cover his expenses   over    thfit  transaction. r^'"  ���syjwartiwiiiflmjyjifttns* iioji*;  ^^jjfc-^jS^fc.^JCjM>^��r:v,lM.,l   .~t*.*i\r, .ag^tUM.Vrttrrfet^g^Vjpea^tf^iJg-ii  ~��yi --ir' (r-��* r*J  ��� ������� ��� *-*"��� "-  .-,+.

'Norma glanced from the doctor to fcho  patient in the bed, and laughed a little.  "A very clever explanation, Dr.  Wharles," said sho in a low voice, "as  night have been expected from you."  xhen she turned upon hitn suddenly, her  tyes flashing fire. "I can trust you now,"  ���aid she, in a voice not much louder than  before, but very firm and determined,  [-"because I'm not leaving him alone with  rou, and because, if he were to die to-  sdfjht, you might find it difficult to explain away my explanation." She turned'  iway from him as abruptly as aha had  turned towards him, nnd saving simply:'  "Good-night, Mrs. ltaggctt," ran out of  tlio house to her lodging.  She would have liked to go to the polio* station that very night, hut she  dAied not trust licisclf- out alone in the  dark along the road. She felt also that  titers was no need now to fear an imnie-  tilt* Attack upon poor Ned; as she had  1 Mid, the matter, would look too suspi-  ajpiu, when her story camo to bo-heard.  $M lay awake, 'however, wondering what  the doctor's next stop would be, and  whether he would have Mrs. Raggett for  to foe or an ally when she, in her turn,  Aould hear her stepson's delirious words.  On tie following inoining, before ten  o'clock, she wa3 in the 1 own, on her way  to the police station. She passed Dr.  Wharles, starting on his rounds in his  gigj and if he felt any uneasiness at  jpght of 'her, he certainly concealed it  V*ry well, as bs raised his hat and  nailed at her as if she had been one of  Ms favorite patients.  Her story to the superintendent was  toon told: how she watched by the sick  boy, the words he uttered, the entrance  ��J the doctor, his suspicious behavior,  htr action in shutting and bolting him  (Hit, his accusations of her on the return  ,   tl Mrs. Baggelt.  After listening attentively the super-"  tntendent decided to go at once to the  E" ge, and to see whether the lad was  condition to bear interrogation, and,  g that unlikely contingency, whetk-  ��� tr ihe waa in proper hands.  On reaching Mrs. Raggett's cottage,  however, the first person whom the offi-  tkl saw was Dr. Wharles himself;jwho  Was standing by the bedside talking to  Mrs. Raggett.  The doctor appeared to be delighted to  gee him.  "Ahl" he said, "we've got a case for  rou here, I'm afraid."  "Indeed, doctor?"  "Yes. Here's a sick lad been sent out of  ���is mind by the injudicious treatment  ��f a lady whose .zeal outran her discretion."  "You mean Lady Darwen? It is on  ier information 1 have come." '  "I thought so.    She  plied him with  fuestions and her own fancies last night  ill she had the lad in raving dclhium,  and then turned me out of thc house  when I came to see if I could do anything for the poor lad."  "Well, ladies are hasty, aren't they,  . (octor?"  "Yes, but there ought to be limits to  Qieir hastiness when human life is at  itake," said Dr. Whailes sonorously.  "I quite agiee with you. Let me see  low the lad is this morning."  "Oh,  very   cool  and   comfortable,  as  rou see.   His stepmother, Mrs. Raggett,  las been performing a real mothei's pait  to him, and  has sat up  with  him all )  sight." ;  To everybody's amazement, the lad,  irho had been lying with his eyes closed,  to all appearance fast asleep, said sud-  lenly:  "That's a lie. She wasn't wi' me for  Bore'n a few minutes."  Tho doctor looked rather startled;  Nance Raggett turned white. The supcr-  ntendenb walked to the bedside.  "So you can hear what ono says, and  tnderstand, eh, my lad?" said he.  Before Ned could answer, the doctor j  Interposed sharply: '  "I must forbid you to put any questions to Mm at present. He is in my  lare, and X couldn't answer for the con-  joquences if ho were to he ���jubjeclcd to  ta interrogatory now."  The doctor and the policeman looked  t woh other full in the face, and the latter had to give way.  "Right you .tie, doctor. Then you an-  iwer for his safe-keeping till he- t�� well  tnough to be examined?"  "I do," said Di. ..harles firmly.  CHAPTER XXIII.  Fbr the next few days Dr. "Wharles  Irove up regularly in the morning and  igaini in the afternoon to Raggett 'a cot-  Rage, tyid Norma hoard from Mrs. Giles  khatt h*is reports upon Ned's condition  Wvn in every way satisfactory. The  lad waa going on to well, indeed, that  Bis doctor declared ho would very shortly ho well enough .o be re-exam, d by  tho police. And the doctor took p i ticu-  lar care to call eveiy day upon Lite superintendent to report progress.  Perhaps that ofTicial* was not wholly  it -the mercy of the medical man for the  Information he leceived about the Rag-  fetts and their doings. At any rate,  when Nance Razeett staited fori a trip  to thc- seaside, and took the precaution  to go at night, taking Ned with her,  the was met befoie she reached the railway station by" a poltcomiin, ,who courteously suggested that she should accompany him to thc superintendent's office to answer a lew questions, before  proceeding on her journey.  Ned, who h.oked very white, and indeed wholly unfit to .take a journey, began to shiver violently. *>  "Doan't you be afunrtl, boy; no harm  will happen to'yon," said he. "You've  only got to speak out, and tell tho  truth, and you'll be pi otected, never  fear." i"  They were walking back in the ditec-  tion of the police station, but it wus  Blear from the furtive i.'lunccs Ned cant  ifround him tliat he was on the lookout  for an opportunity of��� luiiiiing away.  That opportunity, however, was not given him.     ,  Mrs. Raggett was sulky and alarmed.  "Protected 1" echoed she. "He doan't  want no protection, 'ceptin' from ladies  as ought to know better than coom meddling wr" other folks' aIIairs! It was my  Lady Darwen, I make no doubt,' as put  yo oop to stopj   'g us!"  "Oil, no," said lto officer with a smile,  "we'can depend on our own eyes."  "What do yo want wi' us?" cried she,  stopping short defiantly. <  "Well, as Ve shall be wanting to hear  the lad speak at the inquest again, we  might as well know where you're' going  to, and why you were going away at  night," said < the policeman,     i  i  When they got into the presence of  the superintendent, Nance Raggett was  very fluent, Ned very taciturn. Nance  declared she had heard nothing during her  stepson's delirium to make her think he  knew more than he 'had owned to knowing: the lad himself-said sullenly that,  if anybody had said he talked about the  murder in his illness, he remembered  nothing about it, and he was not responsible foi the fancies he might have  had-then. ,    * ~ .  It occurred to'the superintendent to  think that'-t, is pln.tse must have been  suggested to he lad by'someone with a  clearer brain than his own, but he made  no remark.  "I think, Mrs. Raggett, if I were you,"  he said, when she had told him an elaborate story of tlie arrangements she had  made for a fortnight's stay at South-  port, "I would go back home to-night,  ind put off the journey to Southport  jntil thi3 lad is a little stronger."  It was a piece of advice which she had  no cho1 e but to take. But it was with  pale faces and downcast mien that the  two went hack te the cottage in ths  lane. ,  On the following morning, instead of  the doctor's calling on the Raggetts, it  vyas Nance who called upon the doctor.  And instead of Mra Raggett's taking  a holiday with her stepson, it waa the  doctor who packed his portmanteau,  and, with his wife, went away, in a day  or two, rather unexpectedly, for a week  in London.  There was some talk among the neighbors about this sudden holiday, taken  without much notice upo> ''he plea of  Mrs. Wharles' need of cha..g<-. And rumors got about, which culminated in a  general wonder whether the doctor would  be back in time for the adjourned inquest on the body of Tom Rogeison.  When the great day came, the court  was, if possible, more densely packed  than ever. People of note in the county  were accommodated with seats in that  part of the court usually reserved for  the jury and witnesses and others directly concerned in the case. Every eye  was bright with excitement; every car  was strained for what new evidence the police might have to bring to  light.  There were certain fre3h witnesses to  be heard first.  There was a ; ">g woman, to state  that she saw two t -an go over the fields  on the night of the iniudcr, in the direo-  tion of thc plantation at Darwen llaigh:  the foremost of them she knew by his  ilight limp to be Sii Astley Darwen, but  of the identity of the one who followed  Bhe piofcssed not to be suie.  On'account of the way in which Sir  Astley'* mime had been dragged iiuo tho  case, Air. Capper -ppenred in court on  tlie young baioncl s behalf, and put a  few questions lo some of tho witnesses.  "Where were you when you. saw these  two men going across the fields?"  "I were goin' home across t' fields, by  t' truck as goes leght auioss t' footpath  from ISlackdalc."  "And how far were you from the  mon?"  "About as fur as fiom one end of this  couit to t' other."  "I see. And thcio was still enough  light left for you to recognize Sir Astley?"  "Ay. He has a little limplike in his  walk.   I'm main sure it was him."  "And lie second man? Was he far be-  aind?   How far would you say?"  "B> was nigh as fur from Sir Astley  as I was mysen from Sir Astley when I  first ���'ce him."  "Very good. And after seeing Sir Astley, you had been walking on all the  tim"?   You hadn't stopped?"  "Nay, I hadn't' stopped."  "Then you must have been considerably jjear'er to the second man than you  ha'd been to the first, to Sir Astley?"  There was a slight sensation in the  jourt. The witness, a respcctable-look-  inir vounor w%amjin. with the clear, hard  $ray eyes "of the typical Noitkerner^ grew  nervous, apparently for the first time,  ind looked down.  "You were nearer, were you not?",  "Ay, I suppose I must ha' been."  "Yet you recognized  Sir Astley, but  , were'not sure about the seeono.1 maitt" ,  "S-ir Astlsy has a limp." , >  "Yes. Was there no distinguishing  nark about the second man? Describe  hhn if you can." ',  '"He were a tall man and muffled up.*  <4Bo muffled up that you could not ses  lis face?"  "Not ���we��."  ' pid you take him to be ��� stranger?"  Long puuse. . Then   the witness an-  ���wtred in a low voice: "No."  u     **You thought he was someone you'd  1 seen before?"  "I couldn't reghtly be sure."  "Come, who did you think it was?"'  "I might ha'. been mistaken. Tirwc  was a hedge between him 'an-   mo."   ' ,  "But a hedge is not very thick at this  time of year, not high enough, either, to  conceal the whole of the face and figure  of a tall man."  By this time the giil'3 evident reluctance to tell the whole truth had roused  cuiiosity and intciest to the very highest point. People craned their necks to  see, to hear.  "I doan't reghtly know who it was,'  she said at l-'-, almost below her breath  "Was it Xom Rogeison, t)he man who  was murdered latei that night?"  ' The answer came sharp and clear and  m-ompt:  ."Nay, I know it were not him."       '  , "Come, you came heie, I'm Mire, like  an honest, good girl, prepai ed to tell tht  whole truth."  "But they didn't tell me as how )  should have to name him." ,  . The 'impression these few hurried  words pioduced upon the court may b<  imagined. A sort of sigh/went round  followed by a deep, "Sh���-sh," and the  usheis cried "Silence!" when all were already as silent as the dead. l   ��-  "Ah, but the whole truth must come,'  said the lawyer, impressively. "And re  member, ���it can harm no one but th��  guilty." t    , .  "It woan't prove him guilty, if I saj  I saw him?" aaked the girl quickly. _"J  didn't see him do no haim. He was only  crossing the fields like any other man  might na' done."  " Who'was?" '  "Why, Dry Wharles."  ' Again there was a sibilant sound, lik6  the sudden rush of an incoming ude, and  then again dead silence while the lawyei  spoke. i ^  ��� He was very gentle, hwing to considei  the overwrought feelings of the witness  whose voice' was now tremulous ' and  much fainter than before. She could not  'but he conscious of the tremendous effect her evidence had already had.'  "You are sure the second man, who  was��. following Sir Astley, was Dr  Wharles t" '     ,  The girl hesitated a moment, then aht  said quickly: ,     ,  , "I was sure at t' time: but when 1  heard as how they'd' gone and fetched  Dr. Wharles away out of his house, later, for-to see t' body, why I thowt 3  mtist ha'been mistaken.. For how shouM  they htt''had to fetch him if he was a'<  ready there? And how could he ha' goi  back so quick?" -    ,  There came a sort of surging rush ol  subdued voices, whispering, exclaiming,  i    "Silence!" roared the ushers again.  With a kind word and an encouraging  gesture, Mr. Capper gave the witness  leave to retire, and she retreated, sob  bing, into an adjoining room, while thi  witness, Ned Raggett, who had been kepi  out of tihe court, was at length called  'and, amid a scene of indescribable, su'b  ,dued excitement, was brought in.  ��� The lad was horribly pale, and had t��  be accommodated with a ohair. His drj  lips were parted: his eyes were glassy  and heavy; his whole appearance wai  that of a person sufleiing not only from  physical ill-health, but fiom some acut(  mental torture.  The coroner was very gentle and kind  with him.  "Now, my hoy," said he, "we're not going to bother you with many questions  hecause we all know you've been ill, and  are not over-strong yet. Answer openly,  truthfully, and don't be frightened. Na  harm shall come to you for speaking th��  truth, and there's not a creature in th��  neighborhood that wishes you an^ tiling  tout good."  A sort of encouraging murmur of pity  and good-will seemed to be felt rathei  than heard. Enough had leaked out  about the Raggetts and their affairs for.  a general feeling of compassion to have  been engendered towards this lad, on  whose evidence so much depended.  "When you were last in this court,  before your illness, on thc opening of tho  inquest, you were in fear of someone,  were you not?'  Tlie boy tried to answer, but his  tongue was dry. He bowed his head, and  it was only after it moment's pause that  -he was able to whispci: "xVy."  "You had been threatened, had you  not?"  Ned stared round him with a sudden  shock of alarm. The coroner spoke more  encouragingly than "before.  "Now take my word for it, there is  nobody here who could or would possibly do" you or wish you any harm. Speak  out without fear. You are now ready to  tell us what really happened on the night  of the murder, are you not?"  "Ay," again blurted out the boy in a  strangled  voice.  "You got up in a tree because you saw  Sir Astley coming, and you didn't wish  to be caught trespassing. You have already told us that, and it is true, is it  not?''  "Ay, sir, that were true."  "Well, and after the/t? What happened after that?"  A long pause. Then the lad seemed to  pull himself together, and in a hoarse  voice, plucking meanwhile nervously at  his cap, he said: t  "I waited till t' Squire were gone, and  it was a long time, for he went slow-  like. And I was going for to coom down,  when I see another man a-cooming oop  quick-like, as if 'for to follow V squire.  And���and then, while I was a-wondeiing  who he was, and why he was,so quick,  I see someone a-coonung oop from t' lane,  not cooming quick, like t' other, btit  creeping like and slow. And at first I  didn't know who he was, no , more'n  t'other. But when t' liitt heard him, he  turned from following t' Squiie, and he  looks round, and he say*, says he: 'Who's  tJhere?' says he. And���and then, when he  sees who t'was, he cries oot, and says,  says he: 'Why, doctor,' says he, 'is that  yo?'"  There waa a pause, and once more that  strange, hushed, subdued movement ran  round the crowded court.        u ( i  "Well, go on, my lad."  "And I looked down, and I see^���I  see���" A shudder convulsed him, and  ho paused before going on: "I see t' man  as was creeping ������' -ng rise oop quite sudden,'and hold ��� �� his hand. And I see a.  Hash, and I heard a bang. And titers  was  another  flash, and  another  banjr.  Milt' fiabtv.--.xlat-s��ve <jnc cry, not* so  wry loud, it wasn't, but he fell down  and he moved a bit and ho give a sort  of kick, und I knew, he was shot dead.  "Well, go on."  "1 must ha' moved, or' cried out, for  f man as hud shot t' other looked oop,  nnd I sec his face." .  "Well?"  "It was Dr. Wharles."    ...  There was a'sound like the surging oi  the sea, a suppressed lorrent of speech  and movement.   Then the coroner said:  "Go on." ,_      ,  "Afore he could speak to me, we heard  someone cooming, und he ran away quick  towards the lane. And then my Lady  Darwen she coom oop, and Ididn't dare  tell her what I'd seen. I���I was aieard  of what he might do to me."  "You.,saw him later?"  -    ���  - "Ay.   And he.towd me not to let on  I'd seen owt, for if I did,.I should very  like be had oop for a���a���cesa'ry���"  "An accessory after the fact?"  "Ay, 'twas sumniat like that. And ho  towd me it'd be seven years in prison for  me and worse for him. So I didn't dare  speak, sir,"and I,didn't, 'not till I was  took UP and talked in my dreaming." ,  The story was told. There was minor  evidence to be ta'-enj but'all'the in .rest  of the exciting day, had culminated in  Ned's confession.     ,   "   "' \  The excitement in Blackdale was tremendous: nothing was talked-of but the  murder and the strange turn given to  the mystery by the fiesh evidence. And  when it leaked out that the doctor had  sold his house and furniture, wholesale,  to a dealer in London, even his warmest  supporters began to grow faint; and thc  warrant for his arrest, which was imme  diately issued, took no one by surprise.  - In the meantime the Wyersdale peo  pie had overwhelmed both Abtley and  Norma with their congratulations, while  At the same time they werejfull of hardly repressed curiosity as to the reason  of the tragedy. That it was in some  way connected with the unhappy circumstances of Astley's marriage they  knew, but that was nearly-all.  Norma could tell them, little; but she  wrote a note to Mr. Capper, before he  left The Haigh, containing a suggestion  which she begged that he ;would make to  Astley.  It was that, since'he had made up hh  mind to leave the neighborhood k altogether, and since she herself was going  away, too, he should make,the continuance of his allowance to his wife conditional on her coming to live at The  Haigh. , i  ���Astley thought the suggestion a  strange one, but Mr. Capper approved of  it. "l v_  , "Lady Darwen is quite right," said he  "It will clear away any mystery about  the first wife once for all. It will ensure her behaving properly, and prevent  any repetition of the tricks she has already played upon you."  So the solicitor wrote to Lottie informing her of Sir Astley's decision. Thc  answer came from Mrs. Midsomer, who  said her daughter was not well enough  to move at piesent.  This answ er roused }Br. Capper's ready  suspicions, and he replied that, unless  Mrs. Midsomer and her two daughters  could find it convenient to fulfil his expressed wish without fuither delay, he  was instructed to inform them that the  allowance would be cut off at once.  To this second letter there came a  submissive answer. If it cost hei daugh-"  ter her life, Mrs. Midsomer wrote, she  would bring her to The Haigh on one  condition, that the lady who was using  the title of Lady Darwen should have  left the town. .    ���  To this Mr., Capper, without consulting Norma, at once agieed. But, with  the suspicion he was not unjustified in  feeling, he called upon Nouna immediately after this, and suggested that, on tho  day of the ai rival of the ladies, if the  meeting would not he too painful to her,  shewould do well to call at The Haigh  on some excuse of fetching something  that belonged to her, and to have one  more conveisation with Lottie.  "You say she seemed rather contrite  about having placed you in a false position," said Mr. Capper. "Perhaps, if she  sees you unexpectedly, and understands  that you are not vindictive, she may be  inclined to make a confession which  would free Sir Astley, rather than remain  in the practical confinement of Tho  Haigh, where she is not likely to make  many friends, or to have a xcxy lively  time."  Though rather reluctantly, Norma  agreed to thfej and when, a week later,  Mr. Capper camo to her lodging to take  her to The Haigh, on the arrival of the  Leamington party to take up their residence, she was dressed and waiting for  him.  "I've got a di'-ppointment for you,"  be said. "At tho last moment, this  precious Lottie had to be left behind.  They say she was too ill to travel, but I  expect she took fright, and refused to  come. But they've given their word, the  mother and sister, that she shall come  next week; and I've told them that, if  she doesn't, Sir Astley will certainly carry out his threat." ,  "Then I needn't go to the house," said  Norma with an air of relief.  "l should, if I were you.    This Mra.  finch is, not such a bad sort of wo'inan^'  she's the best of the bunch, tat any rate.    ^  And you may ,as well see the mother,-  who  is  an    artful,   intriguing, woman,    _  much of the same, type as Lottie her-' t  self.'"      , , ; '     '    ,     -  "Where is Astley?" asked Norma tre-^   ���>  niulously, as she began to walk (juickly, ��� 'i  in the direction of The Haigh with her ,  companion. " X"-  "I don't know.,',He's about here stilly  somewhere oi othei, i fancy.   Perhaps at "'  the Hall," said the solicitor. ;   ,' J  Norma felt a pa'ng of the jealousy shs^   ' ;  could not repress at any mention of thej?

Neither of the parties hav.e as yet  announced the date of their'Cou-  ventions but as domination clay  is not till Oct. 15 there is sufficient  time.  The names of several aspirants  for the honor of lepfescnling the  District have been mentioned, but  until the'conventions aic held we  are unable to announce definitely  the names of these gentlemen.  The geneial concensus of opinion  however seems to be definite on  - one point and that is, that the Candidate must be a local man, one'  who has been here long enough to  be thoroughly acquainted with the  needs of the Distiict.

Those who expected  to make themselves comfoitable  in  a comer   without giving  any  one  else the pleasure of their company  and   musical   abilities    were'most  happily     deceived    by   the    most  efficient  host and hostess Mi.   and  Mis Fetheistouhaugh.    Tliesteam-  ei 'left the cityjit 9:30'after waiting  for ten minutes until Judge  Woods  1 locked his family in the house, and  made  dnectly   for   the  Llewellyn  Glacier.  A landing was  made  at the  end  of thc tiip and eveiy  thing that is  necessary to satisfy the inner man  was supplied in picnic  fashion, and  every one did justice to the spread.  After  luncheon     some    of   the  party made the rest of the  trip  to  r the  Glacier 011  foot - and all who  staited out can now say   that thty  not only saw the mountain ot ice but  ' experienced 'the difficulty of ascending and decendmg one of the largest  remnants of the glacial period.       (  After "partaking of supper  at the  original camping ground  the party  boarded the Scotia  about  7 , p. in.  homeward bound.    On the  return  trip, with His Honor Judge Henderson as chairman, a  caucus  was  formed  and  speeches  were  heard  concerning the  important  political  itsues   of   the    day.    Before    the  caucus    broke   up   the    chairman  thanked Mr.   and Mrs. Fetherstonhaugh  for the     enjoyable  outing  which every one had had and spoke  in   glowing   terms    of their  high  abilities      as    host    and    hostess  respectively.    When the  chairman  sat down every  one, as  one voice  sang,   "For   they   are  jolly  good  fellows,"   etc."   aud     when   three  cheeis were  called for,   the excitement was so great that the man at  the wheel pulled the  rope, but the  whistle  was  not   heard,  lost as it  was in  the  burst    of   euthusaism  which came as it   only can   come,  from a   gathering    who  were   not  only happy but appreciative.

('  "Quick changes .of fqrtune and occupation I had always understood to  be a feature of American life," said a  young Englishman recently, "but I  was astonished in Texas, as well as  amused, by a revelation concerning,the  life of a chance acquaintance I made  fehere. He was a well-dressed and  leemlngly well-educated Bostonlan,  traveling lor a manufacturer of agricultural machinery, and put on a good  many airs. I met him in the town of  Bowie, Montague county, and thought  him rather a superior man for a drummer. We were drinking at a bar when  |n came a rough rancher, who, seeing  Ihe Boston man, slapped him heartily  on tho shoulder and asked him - to  drink.

The sewers of Paris are now being  Marched for treasures, owing to the recent discovery by workmen of a bundle  containing $120,000 in securities.  "The latest American Idea for the  ���heathlng of vessels to prevent fouling and corrosion is'to sheath them  with glass plates, which is said to be  entirely feasible."   The above item Is  from The Engineer, of London. While  this'may be true, we Eave heard nothing about it, and it sounds suspiciously  like paper bicycles and  other things  of like order, which seem to exist only  in the minds of newspaper reporters.  The British Eastern Australasian and  China Telegraph company filed a claim  with  the  State  Department    of    the  United States for. $36,000 damages for  cutting Its  cable by Admiral  Dewey  at Manila last May.   The United States  Attorney-General has now rendered a  decision finding that, according to international law, .there was no ground  for  a  claim  for  Indemnity  where a  military commander cuts a cable within the territorial waters of an enemy.  1   Petit Bleu, of Brussels, recently had  a curious experience in which it was  shown that no one is indispensible in  this world.    The compositors having  struck, the text accompanying the Illustrations   was   written  put .on the  typewriter;      then     the       typewritten     sheets     and     the     copy'   for i  the pictures  were .pasted    on    large  sheets of cardboard and the whole was  reduced by photography to the required size.

The report stated that the profit sharing system, which was Introduced In  1889. continues to Justify Its existence,  as it induces a generally Intelligent interest In the welfare of the company  on  the part of Its officers and men.  Two of the workmen were elected by  the workmen  shareholders to  sit  on  the board, and the result so far has  proved very satisfactory.  .'^���According to The Medical Sentinel,  It has been ascertained by careful observation  that  certain  families  in  a  village of. St. Ourn. France, enjoy absolute   Immunity   from   tuberculosis.  They are gardeners of excellent habits  who intermarry among themselves and  keep apart from th�� immigrant laborers.    The latter suffer severely from  the disease.   It is considered probable  that hygienic conditions are not the  sole cause of the difference, but that  by a kind of natural selection a race  Immune from tuberculosis has been developed. ������;��� -  Caisson disease, or compressed air"  disease, Is a malady which is often  contracted by those who are engaged  In engineering work in positions where  ' they are subjected to great air pressure. Dr. Thomas Oliver has observed  several cases of this kind, and he has  arrived at the conclusion that the  symptoms are best explained by the  .theory that the malady is due to increased solution by the blood of the  gases met with it In compressed air,  and the liberation of these gases during decompression. The increased solution of the gases is due. of course, to  the greater pressure upon the person  of tho caisson worker.  The old "Physic Garden," at Chelsea,  which was leased to the "Apothecaries'  Company" in 1673. and presented to  them by Sir Hans Sloane In 1722, is to  be placed under a Committee of Societies and the garden is to be maintained for promoting the study of botany with special regard to the requirements of general education, scientific  Instruction, and research in systematic  botany, vegetable physiology, and instruction In pharmacy, as concerns the  culture of medicinal plants.
