"Ragtime" Hear to Stay,  l'.ecently The Now Yorli Sun publisher  an. Interview with John Philip Sousa li  Chicago, in which he asserted that rag  time will lost as long as tho great opoias.  "Ragtime," says the famous bandmua-  tor, "Is an established feature of American music; It will never die, any more  than "Faust" and tho great operas will  die. Of course, I don't mean to compare  thei* musloally.but ragtime has become as  firmly established ns the others, and can  no longer be classed as a crane In miwlc.  ; Nearly everybody Hlces ragtime. King  JKiward.vn. liked It so well that h�� aslc-  , ed us to play more, of it, and we gave  b��m 'Smoky Mokes' and 'Georgia Camp  Meeting.' Emperor William and the  Crar were also converted to ragtime. It  Is Just as popular everywhere as ever It I  was, and I see no reason why It should  not remain In ,favor so long u music Is  i_t:..ua.  played.  The New York Tlmes^  versa! negative and asserts  an impos-     th.'*   latter   assertion,   lemarks  ���ible condition of service. It does not  destroy the free exercise of the human will, but it places a limitation upon  ihe functions of that will. - '  We are so constituted that, though  one may boast of his independence in  thought and action, nevertheless there  is a mastery to which every one is  ever rendering an obedient service. We  must serve some master, but ''no man  can serve two masters." Nevertheless  we are confronted with the fact that  the great majority of men are endeavoring to do the very tiling which is  here pronounced impossible and proved to be so by all experience. ��� Alas I  how many have fallen victims to this  vain endeavor; how many are still engaged in the hopeless task of a dual  service !  The proposition is as .true in the affairs o' cvciyr'ay life, in the questions  affecting  pohtic.il,   civic,   ethical,   commercial   and   social   relations " and   the  numerous  situations   in   which   we  are  called upon  to assume  an  attitude  of  set vice, as in the realm of religion and  '    morals.    The   tendency   of  the  age'  is  to be non-committal, to straddle, to be  on the fence, to serve    two    masters,  when, as a matter of fact, such an effort is a delusion and a  snare, and "in  the end subverts the best interests, rf  the individual and of the common weil.-  "Compromise is always a sign of weakness.'   Conservatism is a sort of fetich  of the day.    In questions of honor and  dishonor,  of good report and evil  rev-  port, of right and wrong, there is no1  middle ground upon which honest men  can afford to stand.    In  such we are  at the "parting of the ways," and we  must follow one or the other.    "  Especially is this true in matters of  religion. Here the line of separat'on  is so clearly defined that it cannot honestly be escaped- The Great Teacher  gives a concrete exaYYiple" ^-"Yc canno1-  jsrrve God and Mammon." God, s��  ^representing the very highest, because  'IJiost perfect, mastery, and; Mammon.  as' demanding the very lowest, because  the most degrading, service���each is an  imperious and exacting master, and no  man can be loyal to both. Their wills  are so different, their commands so opposite and their ends so antagonistic  that the occasion must frequently use  when one or the other will have to be  'despised and disobeyed if the other  be honored and served. Try as we may  to elude the difficulty of the situation,  iwe are forced to enlist in the service  of the one or the other. Beyond a  ���doubt Mammon rule���Mammon worship���is one of the distinctive features  of the day, and few realize how deep  is the impress upon life and character.  - There is an expression about "every  man" or "everything" having its price,  .and'the" fact that it calls forth a resentment that steadily grows 1-ss pronounced indicates how far we have gone in  this direction. However, there is no  necessary conflict between God and  Mammon, between the acquisition of  wealth and the highest duty of life, but  there is a necessary conflict between the  mastership of wealth and the mastership of God. When men. are so dominated by the love of gain that it becomes an absorbing passion and the  higher eiaims of duty are made secondary they should at least be honest wi'h  themselves and know in what se-vire  they are enlisted, and not be deluded  by the thought that they can "hold to  the one" and not "despise the other."  Unworthy service assumes .otlu-r forms.  Society, fashion, pleasure may be substituted for "Mammon." and we have  identically the same sil nation. Itj's not  a question of inconsistency or incongruity. It is not "ye ought," but "ye  cannot."  If, therefore, every man must serve  some master, and "no man can sc"'f  two masters," and every man n-->'I"  does serve one master, ought not ea"h  one to deal honestly and fairly with  himself, andas an intelligent and responsible being demand an answer to  th's very pertinent question, "Who or  what is mv master ">"  commenting on  :���-Well,  why not 7 One of the most Important  functions of music it to gtve pleasure, and  If ragtime pleases, why should it nor  last and give pleasure to future generations ?

Statistics of the Income and expenditures of the British people Were presented recently by Sir Robert Girteri before  the members of the British Association.  The total Income of the British Kmpne  reaches the enormous sum of tM.lJO.OOO.OOO  from a capital of ��22.250 000,000. Kor tho  United Kingdom the income Is il,750,000,ooO,  from a capital of ��15,000,000 000. The only  nation that rivals'the empire is the United States, with an Income of ��'1.000,009,000.  .The leading figures as to expenditure In  tho TJnito'l Kingdom are as follows :-  Food ana dilnk, ��<fiS,000,OW), or 34 per cent.  of the toti!; dress, i"lS2,000,000, or 13 per  cent.; hou-,", ��2_,3.000.COO. or.16 per cent.;  national services (exclusive of education),  ��1S3,000,000, or 13 per cent.; miscellaneous  (Including A'lO OOO.OoO Cor education, ��2j 000,.  000 for clurch. ��30,000,000 for locomotion,  etc.), ��130,0J.1000, or 9 per cent., and cost  of distribution. ��200 000,000. or 15 per cent.  -   .     Lord Dalmeny Selected.  The Executive Committee of the Midlothian Liberal 'Association on September 30 selected Lord Dalmenv, elder,son  of .Lord Rosebery, as Liberal candidate  for the county, the Master of Elibank,  the piesent member, �� having Intimated  that he will retire at the end ol the present Parliament. Lord Dalmeny addi eased the' committee, giving an outline of  his political views. lie declared himself  to be a Gladstone free trader, not a  Chamberlain tree trader.'  He was unalterably opposed"to a food  tax; -was In favor of licensing reform on  the bioad linos of Lord Peel's minority  report; was in favor of a miners',eight  hours bill, and thought it should be onp  of the first duties of a Liberal fjjvein..'  ment to reverse the injustice Initiated on  English Nonconformists by the two education acts.  Trying His Nerve.  Joseph Wootton, who was charged at  the Southwestern Police Court, London,  recently, with stealing fowls, which were  found Inside his clothing, put forward a  From a Self-Made Mother to a Uom��-  Made Dauyhter.  "Dear Gertrude���Now that you are out  of fininhing school. 1 Bhall expect great  things from you. ' Don'ii think of getting  manied yet. At pioueut do not bother  about how much money a man has  What you aie after is experience, and  oftentimes you can get it better from  the poor than from the rich. Later you  can discriminate. _ When any money is  spent on you, however, never fail to ha  appreciative. It's a fatal mistake to allow a man with money , to know how  much of a fool he is making of himself.  Above all things, say your prayeis ew'ir  nigh't. It's a good Bedative, and you need  sleep at your age.      ��our afTeclional*  "Mothei."  "Dear Gertrude���I am glad you am  visiting in New York. Everyone should  go to New York occasionally to acquire  the proper nervous pitch. But I want  you'to remember that just because you  are moving around in good society you  mustn't drift too much with the current.

Some Clever Epigrams.  One of the epigrams mentioned by  Professor"Brandcr Matthews, in an article on "American Epigrams," in Harper's for November is the .following  by Walter Learned :���  " You say, when I kissed yon, you are  sure I must quite  Have  forgotten myself. ' Sp I  did ;  you are right.  No, I'm not such an egotist, dear, it  is true.  As to think of myself when I'm looking at you."  Many examples are also given of  epigrams by Holmes, Lowell, Aldrich,  and other of our poets, among them  this, adapted by FiU-Greene Halleck  from Goethe :  "All honor to woman, the sweetheart,  the wife, '  The delight of our homesteads by  night and by day,  riie darling who never does harm in  her life���       (  Except  when  determined to  have  her own way."

Now as all  sensible (and a few silly) women desire  to' look charming on all occasions, it.  would be as well if they" remembered  that In public resorts they themselves  attract quite, as much notice as their  gowns and jewels.  Yet there are women who lean theii  elbows on the table and talk across it  to an opposite neighbor, taking sips of  ���wine, or stuffing bread into their mouths  at intervals. There are others,who absolutely throw fragments of their dinner  rolls into their, mouth as if they' were  enjoying a game of cup and ball I There  <��� the wontuii who ,does not eat her roll  at all, but has an irritating knack of  crumbling it up into a heap of fragments,  making an t untidy and most unpictur-  esque litter beside her plate.

Had , eho breathed those words  'etanding near a cliff, in his  bitter anger, maddened at the  thought of the wealth that  might have been his had she but  married him, he could not havo answered for whiat he might have done.

Ho found himself wondering   if   it  Was merely a coomce accident  brought Heath Hampton just  to Switzerland.      , /  Ulmont knew, although thoy had  been rivals, as his countryman he  must greet him at leaBt courteously.  If not cordially. ���  The TJlvaS'lords1were a deep- loving  race, self- willed and exacting.1  "I could never-accept hull a heart,"  Ulmont had often said. "I must  have the whole, or I relinquish all.  One whom 1 love must give not even  one thought to anothor."  '  "My dear hoy, you are surprised to  see mo in Switzerland, I imagine,"  Hampton said, with a warm, hearty  hand- shake, "but I assure you not  more eo than >L myself ��� , at being  here. I heard you were in Savoy,  aiwl I promised myself the pleasure  : of calling." ( ^  It was only accidental then.     1 '-1  j    Ulmont felt relieved. -; '  Heath Hampton i<oosessod ,the happy facully of, making himself exceedingly agreeable to men as well ns  the fair sex, and before tho evening  wore away Ulmont was Bcriously pondering if ho did not do him an injustice by harboiin.g tho, suspiciojs  which for a, ibricf time had disturbed  him.  Loraine had excused herself and  retired to her own loom,,leaving thom  alone together to cbnt ovor old times  as they pulled their Hnvanaa, and  by the time Heath Hampton parted  from Ulmont it was agreed he should  stay' lho tollowiibg week at Savoy,  making one of their party and returning home to  America.  A deep, meaning ^mile hovered" for  an Instant about Hjath Hampton s  mouth. ' 1 ,  "Capital," he muttered, sunder his  breath, meanwhile inwardly wonder  lag at Ulmont's trustfulness, who little dreamed that tho serpent, who  bad slowly but surely gained an entrance into this' peaceful 'Eden,A\ould  turn upon the hand that had given it  shelter.  "So, eo!" muttered Hampton < that  night, as he slowly retraced his steps  to Ms lodgWigsJ "I 'had not expected  Buch an easy, victory���1 the leaven  ,woiks well; Loraine shall reach America and'eo shall I; but mark mo,  1 have sworn by the fortune he swept  from my grasp, the green    vales    o\  Switzerland shall j be Ulmont Ulvesford's tomib,*-".nd 'these icy towers his  'monumentl" ' x  Meanwhile Ulmont was wondering,  as he entered the room where she sat,  what she would say when he told her  Heath Hampton had decided to remain in Savoy, accompanying them  on their homeward trip to'America.  'An excLamation o�� &ui prise and dismay broke from Loraine's lip3, ^hich  she instantly repressed. No matter  waat ner own oecioi. iccuusa ��cic  an the subject, she believed she had  "no right .to raise an objection if her  husband really desired his presence.  While Ulmont, as ^he watched'_ Loi-  aine's face narrowly, was thinking:  "Bow foolisih I was, after all, to  ever imagine my ~Loraine*cared , ior  Heath Hamipton." '  - The week that followed was the  most eventful ono that]had ever come  to the gay, careless life of Ulmont  Ulvesford; a week which brought the  bitterest" of bitter fruits, which  were to be deep sown in his heart. ,  There were stromge whisperings among the tourists, who watched with  darkening brows the assiduous attention the dark- browed stranger paid  the beautiful, stately, fair- haired  wife.'   - '  1  Was the youmig husband mad, Ihoy  asked themselves, to permit it? Why  wats be so bliradf  Every one, even the most exacting,  oauld see that the fair young wife, in  action, thought and word, was as  pure as the white lilies that lay an  the tranquil 'bosom of the Btream  down in the smiling," valley.  She was utterly innocent and ignorant of the world of sin, or the  flowery paths that led to its horrible  brink. . '  "One friend, more darin? than the  rest, who had a fair young! bride of  his own, whom he quite idolized, ventured to remonstrate with Ulmont in  a mild way.  "I have heard Mr. Hampton was  quite attached to your wife at one  time, Mr. Ulvesford," ho said carelessly.  "That was all nonsense," laughed  Ulmont, 'good- ��� humoredly; "he had  quite a fancy for my wife at one  time, I believe. We have often  laughed over our wine about it  since."  "There are many men whose first  love 1b the one grand, supreme passion of their lives," remerked Wylmer  Lee, gravely.  "How seriously you are incl'ned to  treat euoh tmfling matters," said Ulmont thoughtfully, lighting his cigar,  and waving the cutting rings 01  smoke away with his hand.  "Contemplation makes me serious,"  remarked his fellow traveler; "I bavr  seen much of life in my time. ��� Why  do you know," ho continued energetically, "I would as soon think of e  sleek tiger creeping stealthily into th<  fold where my lambs were treasured  as to seo an old lover holding in;  wife's hand, or gazing into her eye*,  with poisonous adulation upon hi.  lips."  "A man's wife should bo held nbovi  all reproach, all censure; she whon  he trusts with his life's happiness, cai  guard his honor," responded Ulmcnt  proudly; but even though ho i-polci  confidently, a thousand doubLs am  fears were busy with his imagination  He did not oaro to admit, even 'ti  him&clf, ho had not nctud wisely i!  permitting his wife's old lovor to joii  their party.  Had not the past proven conclusively which one of them Loraino had  loved?  "Pshaw!" he said to himself. "How  absurd df me 'to indulge in such (ridiculous fancies !"  Still, tho arrow bud pierced his  heart; ho was a prey to conflicting  emotions.  There Is nothing that Tends the  heart, that destroys all hope, that  ruins a life by arousing the keenest  sorrow so quickly as the pangs of  jealousy, the woist disease which can  ar liot the bum a 11 race.  Ulmont would have died before he  would have doubtod, for an instant,  the beautiful, pceiless Lornine; still,  he realized he hud made a. mistake iu  playing with, file tbat'had onco burned  with a   passionate flame.  How could he tell that love for bis  ber  in Heath  Hampton's he.irt?  He, reinembeied vividly how tho  Count de Itisnar, a personal friend  ol Hampton's, had engaged him so often for hours at<d time in ,his subtle,  graceful way, v/h'le 'Heath nampton  invariably talked with Loraine.  On Uknont's previous visit to  France he had^ met the Count do Ris-  nar; once they'had difiered slightly in  opinion on some trifling matter; those  who heard the debate were unanimously in ,favor of Ulmont's theory;  the count bad bubmilted with ' tho  courtly grace of his race, but then  and there he had registered a bitter  vow of vengeance against' tho young  American. ' ,   '        >  ��������� 'He would humble liim yo4, in ' tbe  very dust at his feet. He meant to  keep his word; he was shrewd and far-  seeing. 1  "When he learned Hoath Hampton  had once been the lover. of Loraino  Ulvesford, ho saw a way to work out  that revenge.  He well knew the cruejest blow he  could inflict upon Ulmont's haughty  heart, was through his beautiful  young bride.  'Still, with all -his t sun vo manners  and subtle arts, .the 'count owned to  himself he was not more cunning than  Heath Hampton.  'This was tho,link that bound these  two so'closely. <  Strange 1 thoughts had found lodgment in Ulmoul's breast since that  conversation   with   Wylmer  Lee. ,  Could it be bis imngination'only that  his friends diopped their? voices > to  almost a -whisper when_ he came unexpectedly' among them, or ceased  'speaking .altogether?  0 Of what wore they talking? AVas it  -possible they, too, thought ��� but,  pshawl Why give himself unnecessary  annoyance? ��� f>  It was a lovely day pioceding their  departure for Amer cav 'Ulmont never" forgot that ternble day; u'stood  out clear and distinci upon his mind  for many a year aftemwid.  ' That mora^ng he had gone with Loraine to see the sun riau for the last  time on the Alp-J. 1  The first golden rays were peeping'  above_"the huy��,' icy pillars, lighting  them" up with a thousand airowy  sparkles; a waterfall struck by its  rays, fell in th-ry orange' foam down  the red and iblue sparkling walls of  a beautiful glacier, losing itself in the  ���till 'bluer mist of tne double dome below, that secaned to spread out like  transparent, purple   glass, gradually  melting Into glowing crimson as tbe  Bun's rays pierced   the ravine  below.  Loraine's bauds weie clasped within his own; they were trembling slightly, and hex face was very pale.  "I wish' you had uot brought mo  to this spot on the edge of the precipice, Ulmont," sbe whispered.  ".Why,,my love?" he asked, wonder-  ingly. "This is the grandest and most  sublime spot on the Alps."  "If I- tell 'you why, you will toot  laugh,at me, my husband?" .   -  For answer .he dxew the golden head  sioser to nis'nrwm, Xlustng xne xo��y  mouth.     ���   ' " 4 '    1   [  "Certainly not, my sweet."

"I  thought you were standing on this  very spot; others were around you,  their dark faces between you and the  sunlight. Your face was white, and  you called out suddenly: "Loraine, my  wife, where are you?' As 1 ran to  you * with outstretched hands, a woman's face came between us, a proud,  ���beautiful, foreign face, with scornful  lips and flashing eyes.

'All  the oay  that  followed,    Heath  Hampton    hovered  like   a   persistent  shadow    around  Loraine,  who     was  quite annoyed at his'atteotion.    <  "Why," she asked herself, sorrowfully, "did Ulmont, her husband, seem  to prerfeT the society of the Frenchman to her own, leaving her to upend  the lonely hours as best .she miijht Id  the society of 'Heath Hampton?"  1 The scenery from Loraine's window  was sublime; yet, ns sho stood there  in her royal, a/urc-tinted robe, tho  breeze toying with tho soft lace Unit  encircled her throat, uud loosened her  golden hair in which a f��pray of blossoms cJung, sho was not thinking of  the beautiful bights upon which her  eyc-rested; she had pushed aside her  books, the very sunlight and tho flowers tired her; she was ghid, she told  herself, sho was to start for America  on tho morrow.  Loraine was wailing for her husband; sho bad no heart, no thought  away from him, nnd the hours seemed  dull and long which par-fed them.  Again sho took up her book, but the  story had no power to charm her.  She laid her fair young cbook on  the crimson cover, with tho question  on  her red  lips:  "Why does Dlmnnt not como to me?"'  Ahl it was well for Loiaine Ulvesford she did not know wliv.  In another part of the building,  where the toinisls smoked their cigars, watching tho eun-covcred cragi  aibovo and the crags bsnoath, ncath  Hampton sat with a party of friends,  including Dr Eisnar.  ' Ulmont camo among the group quite  unnoticed, so engrossod were thoy in  the recital of somo story from'the  reminiscence of Hampton's exploits.  "Ah, yes, gentlemen," continued  Hampton, buoyantly, "at that time   1  ' .There were tbe fumes of wine on his  breath and a ' rootless glance in hia  eye.

Mr. Robertson had Dropsy  and Rheumatism for five years. He  cured his Kidneys hy using Dodd's  Kidney Pills and both diseases ^ departed for good. Speaking of his case  Mr. Robertson says:  "I had been troubled with Dropsy;  and Rheumatism for five years. I am  now well and it^ ��� is all owing to  Dodd's Kidney Pills. Before I started:  using' them I could hardly put my,  feet to the floor they were swollen so ,  much from Dropsy. My arms used to  swell at times so that I could not  put my coat on.  "A friend advised me to try Dodd's  Kidney Pills offering to pay for them  if they did not help me. Before I had  used the second box I felt a great  improvement.

THE GOVERNMENT'S' FINANCIAL REFORP.T  The Provincial Government has  lost no time in cariying out its  pledge with regard to establishing  an equilibrium'between tneievemie  and expenditure.  Even the , "Liberal" Victoria  Daily Times, foi once, actually  applauds the Government's action  and says,' editorially:��� "Tlie Mc-  Brlde government deserves commendation for the courage it is  showing in grappling with the financial crisis in the Province."  . The Bills introduced show that  the Government are fullv alive to  the neccessity of largely increasing  the revenue.  The Assessment Bill,  as now ai-  ranged,   will   relieve   the    poorer  classes of part of the heavy burden  of taxation, while the source of the  additional revenue will  come  from  those who are best able to afford it.,  Up to date the Government have  been very much like thepieman who  failed because "The whole cakes he  broke and the brokenones he ate. V  Now   the   new,    administration  have  to  face  the.  problem.    The  whole loan of S3,500,00  negotiated  in London last-year has been   used  up and now it is necessary to laise  $1,000,000 mote  to  cairy  on the  business of the Province.    It  is  to  be hoped that the Opposition  will  co-operate  with   the    Government  and aid in founding a sound  financial system which will not only  re-  stole  confidence  in  the   Province  but place British Columbia in a position  to, ask   for, aHd get,   better  terms'than heretofore.

There the bene!.  is terminated on elthcf  ,kand by rocks, and on them the ,wild  ^Pacific rend3 its breast; or here lies purling on warm sand like a cut upon' a  hearth. 'a  From El Toro the stage came rattling  ^hrough the canyon at dusk, and deposited Harriaon Ratcher nnd wife al  l&he largest of those wooden houses thai  jface the beach. On the porch was a sign  "Room, for Rent."  They, em eager young couple, entered  'a largo living apartment; and Mrs.Miggt  |eat .there knitting. In a- corner, bcnl  |*Ter h table, whereupon were card*  'witch told tho hours of high and lou  Jtlde, sat a very old man.  "Here we are againl" ,cried Jennit  jUtatcher. "Just as last year, and readj  for another vacation. How is the croj  ��f abalones?"  She gave Mrs. Miggs an enthusiastii  Un.  "You fee," said, Ratcher, "we'r�� a<  (lad,to get out of Los Angeles and tin  ���urlo store, that we want to Jump righi  iliito the sea. We'll gather abalones  'The demand for shells is big at tin  ���tore,"  Plump,  placid ' Mrs.  Miggs pointed   *  thumb to her pile of abnlone shells un  der a window.    She had sharks' eggs ii  * bowl, starfish  on  the  wall,  and  bar  joaeles and things nil over the house.  "See," she  said, "how  many old  Mr  'Jone-i has got for me." ,  'Old Jones was mumbling in his beard  "9.43 a.m., Deeeiuber the third.    Lowell  In sixty-two years.   Two more days."  " Some of  the  shells had been ground  and glowed with the light and coloring  .��that have made California shells famous  "If they are so plentiful," cried Jennie  "we can make our vacation expenses oul  of abalones.    Oh,  Mrs.  Mijrgs,  how  wi  have  slaved!     And   poor  Harrison  hal  ���iokl    We are-building up a trade; aiu  in a few years, maybe, we shall bo on"  of debt!"  Old Jones here arose and fared Jenni^  wh' was a picture of optimism am  ihea'th. Thete was a wide smile on hi-  countenance, which was haggard and  startling.      - '  "Come hero!" said Jones, nnd toddlei'  'to a window. The Ratchets stared oul  where he pointed. Hisi \oice was liki  the rustling of damp papers. "Down  that way there ain't none." , He swop'  his hand %o the'south. His eye on then  'dilated. "Don't go that way. Go up thi  way!" Ha swept his bony hand .to th'i*  north.  .   '*Oh, thanksl" said Jennie, inclined tt  1 edge  away   from   him.      And    Ratchei  laughed big bass gratitude at the iufor  station.  ,   "How old are you?" shouted Ratcher.  "Oh, don't yell," said Jones.   "Ninety  five.   I'll go to bed."  Hi mumbled, and went up the 'stairs  Hi�� ild legs' wobbled. He was saying to  iinioelft "9.43, December the third. Low  mat in aixty-two."    .  Up he climbed; now his.head disap  feared: now his withered trunk; 'now  this rickety legs. They heard his foot  falls, aoft and strange, along an uppei  hall. Old Jone3 had left a chill behind.  ''���-��Who is that peculiar person?" Jenni  'whibpered to Mrs. Miggs. -       '  "Some old tailor," was the Miggs' re  ply. "He came two years ago', and wat  ���hraya studying tho tides, ju3t as now:  snd seemed to bo watching for some  thing that didn't occur; and then of a  sudden he dropped out of sight. A week  ���go here he was again, toddling in."  Next day the winter sun was warm  Mrs. Ratcher was an inspiring thing hi  her bathing suit, running down over tht  mnd like an antelope, more health in  fcer than in three ordinary men. And  Into the aea she plunged shouting, hei  |olly, big, hollow-chested husband after  Jwtoen they emerged, yonder was old  tfooea gazing at them through a window  *He makes me cold," shuddered-Jen  nl*. stopping in a laugh. ^       '  Then Jones's peculiar head was tnrus*  for out over  the roof of Mrs. Miggs'*  Cub, and while the haggard facd  led widely bland, the head wagged  ithree times to tho north. Jones shut ont  iftye as ho wagged.  '   "Horrors!   what    does    the creatur.  mean?" said sne.  But Ratcher roared with merriment.  *<He means-to hunt to the north. Ht  paid that there aro no abalones to thi  ���011th."  ���'Mercy! let's do it, and get out of hti  wight," she said j and went skimming thi  eund and leaping the rocks, he after, lr(  the search for abalones.  After an hour, when she had bcci  felled by a billow, she poked her glow  Ing head up through its crest and���be  fcoldl the eye of old Jones. Old Jonet  mas seated on a crag suventy feet high  "HorrorsI" she said; "look at him."  Ratcher paused with a mammoth yellow abalono in his hand, and stood in  four feet of water, gazing up as though  Jones hud been a comet. Old Jones'r) hor  riblo head was thrust out fuither ovei  the uneven edge of his precipice, aw  ���wagged three times, m.tjestic, yet ghust  ly, to the north. Ho stliut one eye as In  wagged.  "What a lugubrious mortal I" said she  That night old ,Jone3 seemed fccblei  as ho sat in Mm. Miggs's house, mumb  ling ovei liis tide cuds. Xow and thei  his old eye gazed at .lennie, suspicion)  And uneasy. She was so alarmingly  healthy, no wonder she got upon th\<  jieivcs of iiiubody so near his grave a-  old Jones. *Mrs. Migg3 was stringiiif  limpet shells from the. hanging-lamp  Mrs. Miggs had big, red . crawfish' in ';��  pari. Old Jones wunt up to bed in >\  lainshitckli!'wu'yj his bend diaajipuimitl'i  hU"'���trunk;' his   Ifgai '   They ���hea.nl   iiit  rustling footfalls grow faint in the har  ��bove.  The walls of that house were verj  ibia. In tho night, Jennie Ratche  Awoke from her vigorous sleep with ��  dense of queerness. But all she heaic  ���wss old Jones in'a distant room miimbl/  *nd ramble in wakefulness, and say  'Two more days.    Oh, me." ,  7,Iad Mrs. Ratcher not been one of tht  most extraordinarily healthy womei  iliAfc ever drew breath, she would havt  slept no more. But she did sleep���  shades! how Mrs. Hariison Rulche  could sleep 1  TJie following afternoon, again in bath  ing suit and gamboling beyond all re.t  'eon, ehe went over tho rocks with lie  blisbaiid. who grinned, half-stupefied a  \tr vim. To the rear she saw old .Tolie-  t'tfttflping out of the house with his evi;  fastened on her.  "Harrison," sho "whispered, where Mr.  ltntcher stood poised on a crag,"and  h-tigged him in tho sight of gossiping sca-  'gullg, "that old thing yonder���he's fool-  loy us. I see right through him. Ugh!  S*e his bad eye! I know that there mint  bo oodles of abalonea under those south-  e/ti rocks, and what that, old specimen  says is" intended to deceive. I'm goinp  to fllip down and go to that very place."  - And she rubbed her nose on Mr. Ratch  t*1* cheek, as though sho were whettin.',  it, then charged down jagged places to  tb& sea. When, she was hid down them  ehte crept southward to the Eipot where  time rock3 end and tho beach begins.  -A-fl-fly across tho sand she flew.  Tender across the gap the southern  rooks rose, and Ratcher saw her disappear among them; then percoived old  JoU��9, fifty yards behind him, stare, wag  his head, and grow agitated. Of, a sudden, down over the rocks and out acros?  th.6 asmd to the south, queer Jones, with  rickety haste, eyes ablazc,_\vent-toddling  And. Ratcher sat down on the rocks and  shook-with laughter, but"later follo\ved_  Jones.  Jennie, making flying leaps over incredible gulfs between rocks, was finding  quantities of abalones.  'That shameless old codget!" cried she,  and stood gazing round at, the wild spot  wherein she found herself, or sticking  hw toe into the soa-anemones 'to sea  tlmua shut, up mund it and squirt. Then  ale felt a chill.' and turned quickly to  look Up. Over a rock that hung above  lie*, projected the ragged head of Jones,  twelve feet distant, against the unfath-  oranhlo California sky.  "Mercy! Get away," said Mrs. Ratcher.'  r'Say,  come  out,"  rustled  old Jones  His   countenance   had   a   dreadful' look,  "Cerjae north, along of me, to where your  husband is.   I'll tell you about Dana."  "About what?" '    _  ul sailed with Dana," cried the old  mxn, hoarsely, over the rock. "With  Richard Henry Dana in. the 'Pilgrim'  away,back in the thirties. >'You read  ,'Twtt Years Before the Mast'?"  "Oh, surely!" cried Mrs. Ratcher, mak  in?- such a jump to the shore that Jones  rub-bed his eyes.  ,eCome away; I'll show you where we  threw the hides'down," he said.  "JCurrnh!" cried Mrs. Ratcher; and  sprinted on the sands to meet Ratcher,  "VTJisit do you think! - This old exhibil  waa -with Dana." '"'  Tha exhibit    came    toddling . along,  ��� "Here,"   he   mumbled,   excited,   pulling  them by the clothes.   "You can't see tht  place*   unless you   come    away   to   tht  north."  (Mi Jones could make pretty fair time  himself when he had a mind to.  Ratcher wasi laughing, to Jennie's dis  gust, and she hit him on the back. But  It vfas all tragic to Jones. The sweat  stooi out on his brow.  WUon they came to the summit of thr  northern rocks, he stood wind-shaker  and dilapidated under the circling gulls  ani pointed to a distant cliff.  "xemder," he said, "we threw then1  down. The ship was.gathering hida-  frota the Mexicans to sell in Boston. Ti  fvery old mission up and down the coas!  we went. Oh, mo. Queer days. Thi  captain was a tough one. At San Juai  Capistrano, behind that mountain, the}  collected many, and brought 'em yondei  We climbed up there, and threw then  to t\e beach. Oh, how they would skim  and fly like birds! Oh, met And righ!  in tie middle of that cliff they let Dann  down by a rope for one that stuck  ���Seems yesterday. Dana was a bravt  strnnjjn', but he had a mean streak."  "Wliat?" cried Jennie, rebelling.  '"JeV said Jones, "he done me dirt."  Tier old man would say no more  Watchful, feeble, he clung to Ratcher  and -wife all day like a leech. The}  agreed to go south no more till the}  could do it secretly. They felt sorry fo:  the wobbling old codger.  A.-t night Mrs. Ratcher ate dozens o  ��lice�� of bacon, not to mention e^'gs.  "Oh, Mrs. Migg9l" sho whispe.ed, "  leno-tt we can pay for our vacation wit!  nb��lo#es. The sea is so good for Harri  *on| In three yenrs we will be out r  debt;, und maybe build a house of on:  own,''  And! Mm Miggs rattled a new kin.'  of dams that sho had in her pocket, ant'  laughed her easv laugh.  Jennie slept like a top, an cxtraordin  ary, & miraculous, slumber, till 2 a.m  And. then up she woke of a sudden a1-  Uiotitrli she meant business for certain.  She heard a rustling outside hei door  Ah���bo be suie. But two tilings in tin  world rusllrd like that: old Jones's feet  She was going to see, was Mrs. Ratcher  and creeping to the door, opened it i  crack. At the end of a corridor was v  gablo window cner the sea, and through  it moonshine fell. She came, close, am1  found Jones with his head sticking on  in tJic moonshine, staring at the Pacific  lie eo<iincd to be crazy and in pain.   Hi  wept jiifeously.  f veil! not live to  find it," he said. "I  am d^ad. Oh, ��� the tides! You white  luniUic moon, you make thorn. I yco  the 'filgrim' now. Captain, we'll get  .thcio down. ��� Oh, captain, don't flog mo  no More, I'm old. I never done no harm  to yc\}. Don't beat me'no more. I can't  see -viiere the place 13 in the rocks; it  waa In that direction; the tide has never  been low enough.' These modorn'.houses  bo.{h<y me.    But it will bo low enough.  Why couldn't it nave oeen to-nightr'''  He put his head down and sobbed.  Jennie Ratcher picked him right up and  bundled him to bed; just hustled him  right along. Then she slept like a top  till ten minutes of eight, and ' Mrs,  Miggs's ham rose through the whole  houso oa the breezy wing* of the morning. -*  This day Jones was too feeble to get  up, a fact which crazed him the more;  .when  they  went  out  to  hunt for abalones they left him raving.   Mrs. Miggs,  scared, waa sending off for the doctor.  "I'm going right where he said not to  go," said Jennie. "There's some mystery  about that. Anyhow, there are oodlea  of abalones."  They went, free of old Jones and his  eye at last. Everybody in Laguna had  remaiked on the tide to-day, lowest in  sixty;two years, 'when Mrs. Ratcher  plunged into the sea under the southern  roeks.

It  made him sit back, breathing heavily  and remember that ten minutes was all  that remained beyond it of the journey  seeing that it out under his own property. Then he jumped to his feet, and  the blow of concussion threw him back  igain.

He went to danger as other  men tripped in to dinner.  Waiting became intolerable. Something fiesh was happening.in front; the  pairing, noises, were louden voices spun  *ack on  the  thick  air.

After all, the world must have no lack  of   them;    else   how   had   these pooi  bruised, broken pjvicngcis been diugged  out of jeopardy?   The steam was turned  off at last, and she could hear.    -  The volunteers clusleied round th��  wounded; many of them'were injured  themselves by their bunowings among  the'- debris. One of them was stark  amongst the grave cases, whose removal  the doctor supeiintended vigilantly. "  "Give me that one, doctor," said Aire*  ford's , voice. "I ncan let him have an  arm, arid his understandings seem all  right."  Tlie bride shrank back into the shadow  The bridegroom was within thiee feet <5i  her, and���and���was that blood upon hi*  forehead? 'She stifled a cry.  "You've   injuied   youisclf,"   the   surgeon said. ,  "Only  a  splinter.    The  last   carriage  bristled with 'em.   Come on, rny eon."     ,  The doctor stopped to look after the-  ).iir as they hobbled off <    n  "That's a fine fellow," he said to Ladj  Alresford. "He climbed on-the second  ���arriage wheie it tiembled on the rool  if the first .one, and he handed the peo  ,)le out to the men down below.

Here, yoiu  vork'a done now. ,Run after them with  chis' flask, and give them both a nip  when you get outside, please."   ,  There'was an abiding joy in the bride's  'icart as she sped past the train upon hei  nisaion.    The bridegroom was safe;  he  was also, as her heart had cried to hei  could not be otherwise, the bravest ol ���  theae 'brave men.   She heard some other*  talking of the incident as she hovered;  .vaiting to dart by a bandy chair that ,  ,they    made    for    an    injured    ankle;  they spoke gravely "of the danger that -  ,had been  incurred.    A  first  volunteer,'  it seemed, had climbed up and had been  injured by a fall.r   Alresford  had^ been  the second.   She went out into the'day',  light  exultant,  more   thankful   for  hi*  escape than she d.ued to think.  Local help had anited;, the patients  were being stacked  Into 'a" trolley, and  Alresford was .pilotina his charge acros* :  the rails towards it. Someone else stepped  up,   anticipating    the    doctor's * oidcrs,w  'and offered brandy.    Alresford administered it to his man, saw him into tho <  truck, took a drop himself, returned the -  flask, and in so doing found his wifo behind him.  "It's only a scratch,'? he said, reading  her eyes, aud pulling down his shirt-cuffs  in some embarrassment. Then his tone  changed and he spiang forward.

' Lord --Alresford looked   at her    with  varying   emotions   plain   to   sec   in   his  eager face.   He glanced round, and saw  that the tunnel-tolk were emetging and  that he was about to become the center  of interest to those that knew of hiB en- (  teiprise, and those that were even now  bearing of it.  "It beared me," he said, "but I thank  heaven you're all right. Lucky escape  for the back of the train, wasn't It? I  looked up the seivnnts, and left 'cm dig��� .  ging for our baggage in the van.
