Muny Matters of Great  Import to  The Camp.Taken Up,   A Yo&r  1 >, 1  Of Good Work.  Gentlemen:���Accoidiug to the  usual custom of iu-litulions such  as ours, we have the piivilege'bf  submitting for your -consideration  .atesuuieof the many matters"'of  importance,v which have engaged  the attention of your Bouid fen the  P'4St year, the fourth of its existence. , --.'.]*  Much has been done,- but much  remains still to be accomplished, in  connection with matters relatiiVg to  the good of this c6inmunity-*'an*d  the District in general, and it ibe?  hooves each member to do allf/ijj  his power to help on the 'good  work; the best nav to do so - i's^.bv  regular attendance at the" meetings,  either of the Council or of *lhts��ifull  Board, as the case may be,' (aiidM>y'  taking an-active part iu the^prp-  ceedings: Another way is.by^aid-.-  ing the Officials to obtain an'^increase of the membership:.   --.^V*..^  Meetings:���Since, tlie' last r Annual General Meeting of the Board;'  there have been held, 10 OrdiiraiyV  and 4 Special Meetings of i the  Board, and'12 Ordinary, ":ai?d 2  Speciai Meetings of the Coililcff.���"*:  Referring to the Year's work we  ���shall now proceed to report bir'var-  ious matters dealt with, --not neces-'  'sarily in the order of their 'respective importance. '"  Ai.i.-Canadian Koute : ���The  necessity of an All-Canadian Route  has been on several occasions under  discussion. As your Board is of  course aware, the arrangements for'  this most essential undertaking are  now completed. It is needless to  enlarge on the benefit* which 'will  accrue to this Listuci in particular  from this enterprise, as on completion of the Railroad, a branch of  which will tap Atlin. we shall' be  in direct cotnmm.ication with Outside Points, without the necessity  of leaving Canadian soil.  The competition thus brought  about will of course, tend very largely to bring about a reduction of  rates, and everyone is interested in  that most essential aid to success  in our various undertakings.  Waggon Road:��� Endeavours  have been made to secure the build-  in g ot a waggon road to Caribou,  via the North end of Atlin   Lake.  This vvould secure for us "an all-  land route" available ;at, all times  of the year, and the importance" Of  6uch, for transportation'.'..bo^'h: of  merchandise and mails,-...' no| .^ to  mention  the convenience   to fpot-  passengers,   cannot   well   be  overrated. o    .  At pieseiit the ice *'��> fit for hauling fr^ig^t,' only for about four  months of the winter ' aud a wagon road, such ��i has been sought  for, would do away with the risk  of a recurrence of mich an unfortunate accident, u* that ol last winter, whereby two mail carriers lpst  their lives. <>  > The Provincial .Government has  been applied to, but has not sufficient funds al the disposal of the  Department of Lands and Works  with which to cany out the work  at present. Meantime communi-  c.ttions have been entered into with  the Yukon Council, with a view to  their co-opeiatio:�� in the matter, a  considerable portion of the proposed  road lying within the territory under their jurisdiction/  ' Log Cabin Trail:���This much  used and abused trail has been considerably inproved aud so altered  as to do away *vith the heavy grades near the Tepe. It has also  been well flagged -and in consequence ttier�� is little danger of  travellers being lost, as has- happened several times. ��� - ] .  v Appropriation, Atlin Lake  To Moose Arm:���Through the  efforts of your Board,,aided by Dr.  Young, our Member,-an appropriation has been obtained for the cut;  ting of a new trail 'between' Atlin  Lakeand Moose- Arm! This- will  shprten the distance between here  aud Caiibou by over five miles,  besides doing away with several  bad pieces of road. Needless, to  say, this will prove of considerable  advantage to teamsters hauling  freight this winter.  Atlintoo River:���The deepening of the Atlintoo River channel  is a matter of very considerable importance to every member of the  District, as it would be the means  of enabling vessels to come direct  to Atlin and do away with the necessity of trans-8hipment at Taku  Portage; this would doubtless result in a large reduction of freight  rates and consequently of the price  of supplies; besides enabling Atlin  to become a Port of Entry as is not  now the case.  We are informed by the Miuister of  Canals and Waterways that a Gov  eminent Surveyor will be sent to  make a thorough investigation into  the matter of deepening the chan  nel of the River between Atlin  Lake and Taku Arm.  White Pass and Yukon  Route Foldkb:���The Board furnished the White Pass and Yukon  Officials with full data concerning  the Camp, which was embodied in  a long article published in the  Company's Folder, of which twenty five thousand copies were printed for gratuitous distribution.  'This will aid iti keeping Atlin's  advantages before the public.  Public   Huai.th:��� We   have  pleasure* iu^statinfc that sickness  has .been almost entirely absent  from this District, and that we have  been without - epidemic of any  kind ^!     <  HosriTAi;:���This admirable institution has done good work during the past- year, and has proved  of great service, especially ift the  way of dealing with accident cases,  which are bound to occur in a min-  ing camp. It posesses a thoroughly efficient and obliging staff, the  members of'which" arc now coin-  foitably housed in a newly erected  building, adjoining the Hospital.  Resident. Physician : ���The  represetitatirns'of your Board were  laigely instrumental in procuring  for this District,".a grant from the  Provincial Government, for a Resident Physician," and the District  has been fortunate in securing the  services of Dr. "C; A. McDiarmid  who is a.'graduate of the McGill  University and of British Columbia.  Firk DEPARTMENT:���The Coun-  cil of yonr Board..being, as you are  aware, the Fire'"-Cbmmite'e. of the  Town,. we are' glad to state that  arrangements have-'been made to  retain" the .'services, of-that most  necessary1 official," the Nightwatch-  man, 'and'hat L F. Solomon has  been appointedlto the service.*.." . .  T lira Town such'as.Atliiv, ;where  the buildings;:consistieitherlof-.lum?  ber or logs, fire is to be regarded art  an enemy greatly .to be I dreaded,  and an efficient Fire .Department's  an absolute necessity.-.. Iirthis con  nection we arc glad, to mention  that every outbreak of fire was  promptly got under, without1 damage to any extent, and was, in all  cases, confined to -the building  where the fire originated.  The Fire Department is to be  congratulated on the immunity  from fire which the -Town has enjoyed during" the past twelve  months.  Mineral Exhibit:���For^a District, such as this, there are few  better opportunities of bringing the  resources at its command before  the general public, than by a large  and representative exhibit at such  a "Fair", as will be held in St.  Louis this summer.  Representatives from every part  of the world will be there and it  behooves everyone, interested in  our mineral resources, to aid in  sending a large exhibit of our mineral products to St. Louis.  In this connection we may mention that your board has already  sent to Ottawa, a case of samples  of the various ores of this District  for exhibition at the St. Louis  Fair.  The Premier's Visit:���This  District, was favoured last summer  by a visit from the Premier, who was  accompanied by the Attorney-General. This- being considered by  the Council a capital opportunity  for  bringing  before  the,   Govern  ment the requirements of the  Dis-'  trict, a special meeting was   called,  to which the Government lepresen- ,  tatives were invited.  At   this   meeting,   held   on    the'-  14th.   of   August,    the    following  matters   were,   inter alia.-" brought  forward:���The  question   of trails,  fire department,   the  leruissiwi  of  '  the final payment  on   Atlin   Town  Lots, a fresh geological  survey  of  the country, and for  a5?istante  to  quartz prospectiug in.the shape  of l  a Diamond Drill.  To these matters the Premier  and his colleague promised to give  their best and prompt attentions  Dredging:���Among other mat- t  ters of interest to the District, the  advent of the first Dredging Plaui  remains to be mentioned. It is  unfortunate that the plant was-"not  completed in time to be operated  last season, so that an idea might '  have been obtained as to its capabilities; however, so sanguine are  the parties interested, the British  American Dredging .'Company,  Limited,in the results to be obtained  by the employment of Dredges that  two others have/ we arerled to l>e-  lieve, been ordered and will be "  erected iu time for next season's  operations.  -' Another landmark in the history  jofthe-C* mp is.the-installation- and'--,,  successful operation.-of an Electric;.  Lighting Plant in Atlin;- thv* ^will-  prove "a great boon during the loiigt  winter nights still before-ub.    The  Company  operating the    Electrie  Plant has a steam laundry in   connection   and   both    ventures   are  housed in' a suitable -building on  the Lake front.  Last, but by ho means the least  in importance, remains to,be mentioned, the discovery of COAL, on  the. Tooya River, to the South  East bf Atlin; this, when taken in  conjunction with the proposed new  Railway, is a matter of the greatest  congratulation to'the Camp, as  means will thereby be. given of procuring fuel necessary for smelters,  the operation of which is indispensable for the development of aur  quartz mines. .,  In conclusion a few words as to  the outlook for the Camp may not  be amiss. Confidence as to the future pernancy of this District is  evidenced, not only by the advent  rfa very considerable amount of  capital fr^m the outside, bat also  by the very lar^e number of new  buildings erected and extensions  and improvements made both in  Atlin and Discovery.  We look forward hopefully to a  prosperous coming season and  trust that the output will be largely increased in every branch of the  mining industry. Several quartz  properties, notably, the "Yellovv  jacket" and the  "Beavia"   Group  will be energetically worked next  season; on the former property a.  wide lead, showing rich praapesU��  ft-' Wk  : OHRISTIAIITT i  :    IS 0H1RAGTEE, i  ���  ���  |! ��� John P.

No  dogma can nave, no heresy  |;of   doctrine   in   itself   condemns ;   no  hforms can  save, and  even the  lack ol  |!all connection with the visible Church  ���itself,  its  forms  and  saci aments,  docs  not of necessity judge a man.  Do not misunderstand. Doctrines are  I not useless,  neither arc forms.    Right  doctrines and right foi ins are of inestimable value, but they are1'not esscn  tials because they arc the means to an  end,   and   that  end   is   life,   character.  Christ Jesus came to  help  us  become  one  with  God.    Belief on  Him  is  of  I no use if it mean  only  that you hold  Jthe correct doctrine of His incarnation,  Ithe atonement, regeneration, the cuch-  lirist,  the  Church, etc.    Flatly,  if that  lis all the faith a man has, if his beliel  Ido  not  involve  oneness  with   God  in  l:he Spirit of Christ,  he might exactly  lis  well   believe  in   the  incarnation  of  iBuddha.   The one would help him as  liiuch or as little as the other.   Saving  I'aith is not belief in a fact, not bchct  In the facts of the life and death of'oiu  iLord, but such a real belief in His lite  That we  come  into  union  with   Him ;  lind such  union  with   Christ  is   union  |,vith God the  Father and denial  life.  The possibility of eternal life lies in  he development of our divine natuie,  |ts growth through the infinite'ages as  ve develop moic and moic in the  mage of God. It is a constant growth  )f happiness ; a growth of love, of  ruth, ot aii the possibilities of the  jlorious divine nature within lis, the  ,eeblc consciousness of which even now  |jivcs us a &eiibc oi power, of grandeur,  if happiness, ol satisfaction which  iothing else can give. But this eternal  elicity of divine development belongs  >nly to the man who gives play to his  oul���that is, who seeks to develop the  liviiic, the good and ihe noble that is  n him, who believes with his life on  he name of the only begotten Son of  'od.  A man that makes himself a' beast,  dio surrenders himself to the beastly  ature that is within him, who chooses  he ignoble, the sensuous, the selfish,  lie dishonorable, is the man who does  ot believe on the name of the only  cgotten Son ot God, however loud his  rotcstations to the contrary. That is  he man who is becoming a beast, who  ; forfeiting his divine nature and with  : every possibility of the eternal and  lorious- development of the sons of  iod.  ��*lle possibilities of heaven, lie in the  ,iaracter of a man, in the aim and  urpose of his life;_ and so it is' that  bd sent His Son, not to judge the  /orld, but to save the world by a life  ad death, belief in which might help  ad mould our characters. If a man.  lake choice of Jesus Christ as his  taster and his pattern, believing in  lim as his.Saviour from'0evil, then he  jas found a help, a succor, which  nests and prophets -loit��cd for and  puld not find.  j All  men,  whether they will pr not,'  re    preparing   for   the future life as  jirely as  the boy  is preparing to  be  =ie man.   Every man the whole world  ver is developing the worldly, devilish,  'eastly side of his nature, or the true,  >ving,   divine   side   of  it.    Jesus   has  hown    us   what   is   divine,   what  we  hould  aim at, what we can be.    Beef in,Him  means  the acceptance  hi  lat life as our pattern; that ,we judge  ght and wrong, good and bad, by no  ther standard than  the perfect stari-  ardbf our Lord Jesus Christ.   To bc-  'eve on the name of the Son of God  ; to aim to make our lives like His;  p  do  what  we honestly  believe  that  le would have done in our place.  And  b to believe in Him means to obtain  icomparable aid in the hard struggle  gainst the beastly and devilish part<of  jur. nature, which, I take it, every man,  t least in the moi.vnt when he stops  hd thinks,  would  like  to  conquer if  chad.the strength,  i We know God through man/for in  <ie man Jesus  of: Nazareth'was  Goil  jjvcaled, and as we know God through  ian,  so  only  through man   may  we  bach God.   Our belief in Jesus Christ,  j it be a true belief, is not merely a belief in the one perfect manifestation of  rod in man; it is a belief in the divine  hich He manifested.    It is a belief in  ve and truth wherever we find them,  love for and kinship and'communion  ith all  good men   who   manifest    in  ieir lives love and truth.

"Clallau.  lost her rudder, became numau-  ageable, aiid drifted on to the rock-  off Smith's Island helpless and at  the mercy of the storm.  Immediately Captain RoberU  had ascertained the extent of the  damage and realized that she wa>  rapidly sinking he ordered tlu  boats to be lowered and attemptec  to save his passengers. The boats  were got out amidst perfect order,  the three boats were filled but capsized alongside, all the occupants  being drowned.  Meanwhile the authorities on  shore had observed the distress ol  the Clallam and sent two tugs, the  Holyoke and Sea Lion, to hei  assistance; the former of these tug.1  managed to, get a hawser aboard  the disabled steamer and in spite o:  Captain Roberts' warnings, which  owing lo the gale were not understood, started to tow her in. Tin  Sea Lion was at length made tu  understand that the steamer wa:-  foundering and warned the Holyoke who cut the hawser, and aided  by the other tug succeeded in rescuing all those on board numbering,  thirty one.  Amongst those who lost thei:  lives the people of this Camp wil'  be especially sorry to hear of tin  following:���Mrs. and Miss Galleth  Captain Tom Lawrence, and Mr.  N. P.

There   was no  .

Moreover,   from  the  beginning,  be  ��� 4ad done  the .work appointed for him,  ,&nd be bad clone it with a cheerful will.  That little was asked of 'his bands was  '    fbeyond bis concern.   He accomplished }\h  toasks joyfully, and an easy labor yielded  kbundance, even riches.   Thus states and  ;ciimates  furnished  him  with   their beat  (delights;  the cycle of the year was too  '.brief to hold  them  all.  i   Hence it  follows   that  he  was  much  (loved and envied, pl.iccd high in the es-  . ''  te��m of other men, and given  of thei>  .'best; In  matter and spirit.    Tlie enjoy-  i   imenfc of this pleasant fortune caused him  '*t rare moments even  to  envy himself,  .and to wonder that the sojourn on this  le&rth, ill-spoken of by many, should have  ''offered such a smiling face to him.   But  ��� l.tlvis rarely; for lie wa-ai not given to rejection.    To1 live, with 'him, was to dc-  nire. and to desire was to satisfy;   Thus  ,Jie lived in an unbroken, circle, 'and re-  'grefc 'was pushed ever further away,,.be-  lyond the distant years.  So Jt "went with 'him for a long time.  '��Theu one day he fell ill of a fever, and  Eoke to find himself in  the neat,  cool  >om of a hospital. "He could remember  ,_ othing since the day he had walked lasl  ���in the  city with  some  friends,  and 'ho  . 'called the nursio to him to"question her.  illta eye happening to rest npoii his 'hand,  iwhich lay white and nerveless beside  iihim, he demanded a' mirror. The nur?n  ifceld -one before bis face, for jhe could  'not. stretch forth 'his arm to take it; and  ..pgalnst the glassy surface of the mirroi  '(ho saw a strange ���man, one with deep,  'sunken, misty eyes, pallid face ami  "6hrunkcn neck. A long, thick mustache  'drooped heavily at cither side of the  sunken month.      ,, \  He ���would 'have turned himself to the  Iwall, bat lacked the strength.

"We shall have you out soon!'  he ex  claimed.  Nut  the sick  man, his eye falling o*  ihi-i  thin  hand  in  the  doctor's powcrfu  'fUt, remarked indifferently:  ��   "Jt seems very empty."

"You must sleep," the doctor respond  ed hastily. .  , "I am not tired," the sick man an  ewored. "I seem to have slept a great  deal. But T am empty���liko a vast jar  a cool and quiet iar."  Tha doctor smiled, and glanced at Jr  patient'* chart.''. ' . t  "And this room is empty!" tho sic.  man continued. "The shadows ntn.lt  back and forth across the celling, am  ���'-the air dances. Do you not feel how  empty it is? Are the streets and 'tin  kow-n outside, also, empty?"  r But the doctor had slipped away will  *s- word to the nurse.  The patient lay in the pleasant jiilcner  ��f the empty room and thought of not!:  |5ng, for a number of days, content Wi1'  ;tho celling and the empty shadow;  ,an��ither asking questions nor hcedinj-  jtliofio about him. The shrunken frain-  Ibegnn .to fill once move with flesh ant"  "blood,, but.the bye .-remained within th'  *rhor of the dark brown and would 110  look forth.  One night, a�� he lay there awake  -neither thinking nor diT.nnlng, he bean'  Jrom the cori'idtii' a groan, nnd later a 11  other sorrowful groan.  "Someone Is dying," he said to himsel.  calmly.  A nurse passed through 'the corridor  opened and closed a door, and again tin  ���hours began brondingly tlivir travel toward the duwn. Just as the gray light  was .coining over the ceiling the nurse-  entered the room.  ''Soineono has died?" ho asked.  The pale and weary girl started at Uir  question and dropped (he glass sho heM  ���'Someone has just, died?" iio repealer  tianquilly.

And to-morrow, t!mt is to-day  thnre will be nnotlier-���ina.ny, many others.   It is���awful."  She bent her tired bead upon her arm  and rested beside the window; ber tcar-  flowcd gently.  "Why do you care?" the flick man  csked coldly. "They aro content, no  doubt." ���    ,  "They are somebody'fl children,' sho  answered softly. "Somebody's fathers 01  mothers.   They might be mine!"  .tn the dawn by the open window he  coUld aoo Iter figure tremble.  "gfo'ypu 'have a father and a mother,';  he/ibuerved Idly.   "Wliore aro ihiy?"   ;  flii. thntiiot very fer.j?-srayj"-��..- -��� ���  send thorn, week by week, and m��.i, ,0���.1  little." , ^  At Inst he asked: "You desire it very  much? To go home? To sec thoni  again?"  "Oh!" She gave a little aspiring sigh.  :'Do you know the country? Where we  live among the mountains there are t.tll  blue peaks, and still valleys, and great  forests."  "Some desolate spot in tho backwoods  hill3," be said to himself, "where the  frogs answer one another in the creek,  and the flies buz/, all day long."  "In the spring," she continued, her  eyes flashing, all weariness gone, "the  mountains are covered with purple flowers. They run like flames ,up and down  the valley. And some morning you see  in tho mist on the hillsides the pinky  branches of tho" peach trees. They are  like tho dresses of a queen, so gay and  pink."  Her words stirred the man's memories  of forgotten scenes���tropical twilights,  nigh'ts on the Alps, a great dawn in tho  midst of the sea���old pictures that onco  filled his heart with joy and wonder, but  that hung now like paintings out o'f  fashion in the disiuied galleries of his  soul. ,  , "You are overworked," he observed  when she was silent, dreaming of that  valley homo. "Get me my things," he  ordered suddenly; "my watch and purse.  They have n.aden them away in that  drawer behind the door." c,  Tlie little nurse brought his watch and  purse, fingering in childish wonder the  long, thin chain and the many rings and  seals.  "It is very beautiful!" she murmured.  He.took the heavy pocket-book from  'her, and with trembling fingers emptied  it   upon   the   bed.    His  hand   fastened  upon a sheaf of banknote?.  "They look very old and yellow," he  mused, fingering Iho bills with curiosity.  "I must have "lain here asleep a longtime! 1 remember getting them at the  bank the. day.before-'! became ill. They  were bright and crisp enough then!" he  laughed. "Here," lie exclaimed excitedly,  almost roughly, "take this and( go at  once���to-day. You can go to-day, can't  you?"  He thrust a thin, yellowish bill toward the little nurse. She drew b.iek, as  if frightened by his rude energy, and the  ready tears came to her eyes.  "You are gc id! So very good. But'!  cannot take il." c  She covered her eyes with her fingers,  lest the j'ellow banknote might tempi  ���her sight.  "Why not? why not?" he panted.  "It's enough, isn't it? I mean enough to  take'you "there to the laud's end where  the flowers grow all over the mountains?  And you want to go, don't you? You  said you've wantedfor two years to go  :home. Two years! My God! To want  'anything for two years! What a  ;chanccl  ���   She still drew away from his outthrusl  ���hand which held tho trembling bill.  "I cannot take your money, no matter  'how much���I want it," she gasped.  '   "It is nothing,  child," he urged.    "A  bit of paper with marks printed on  its  'face.   You sec there are others like it-  land I want none of them.   Come! It will  take you there to 'the wonderful moun-  jtains and back, and you can get some  presents   for  your   people.     You   must  Stake them something, of course."  '   He urged his gift gently, pleadingly:  ;   "lb is only a bit of u.ipcr, a pass," be  'said; "and it is no good at all unless you  la re the right orie, the one meant to have  ;it, and  then it  unlocks 'everything,    i  ���think you are the one meant���it is youi  ���pass���and it is no longer good for me,'-  ,;io ended with something like a groan.  ;''So take your pass while you can use  it"  ' Still she held back.  :" "Child," "he pleaded further. "Do this  :to give me a bit of joy. There is notli-  jing in this wide, wide world I want as  [vou have wanted this for two years.  Just think of it! Perhaps you could  'make roe believe I was going, too���make  j.mo believe I wanted to go. So, child,  'you see it's-nothing but a kind deed Ir.,  jme,"  1 The face of the little nurse worked  juervously., She let her fingers fall from  Ibefore her eyes, and looked eagerly al  ithe magic strip of paper. It fjccincd U  Ibring all the things she had longed for  most and had seen afar oil" within the  [touch of her hand. Her cheeks [lushed  with desire.  1 "And, obi Id," the man added, perceiving some possible woman's motive in this  (hesitation, "you need not think that 1  'give it. It is your pass, and it has  [dropped from heaven 111 your path this  fine spring morning. God, up aloft there,  i.liao felt the passion of your desire and  iinswercd it. Not, that I am the kind of  'messenger Ood might choose ordinarily,"  he hastened to add with a whimsical  smile. "But they say He iwes strange  messengers sometimes. And, at the  worst, this messenger will not harm you,  niv child."  tie patted her dubious; hand encouragingly and smiled up at her. The quick-  coming, irresistible desires flushed her  face, and left her speechless. Suddenly  she fell upon her knees beside the bud  and kissed the man's hand and cried  childish tears of joy and pain.  "Tut, tut, child," ho said. "You make  too'much of it. Tell mo again how the  niiety   hills look   when  the peach   trcc��  f^EuS��M~.L]ipvc   content  'longer.    TlTe   little  runs  hnr   lioo.l   nnj    f,-o,.nlin,r   t  t for some days  sc, with hat on  her head and traveling bag in her hand,  jslipped into his room to say good-by,  "but linding his lids down, kissed his lingers-genliy instead. Later, men of-busi-  ncs-j came to see him and asked this and  suggested that; 'invariably ho nodded  his head and smiled. U seemed lo him  that they made much of nothing, but he  was courteous^ grateful to them for  their kindly interest in tlie trivial. Yet  he might have remembered the days  when lie found siomo meming in the commonest acts of the business day, and  trotted hack and forth, among men with  "JJ-^c -���,:if a. lii'dv. dajcwJoo carries a  JasTcet clovcrTy-uerweeli nrs teem.  Finally the doctor came to him���the  loctor-who was his friend���and said  theerily:  "Whe spring ia getting on. We must  (���urn you out of this and pack.you away  10 your country place, and let you watch  jhe blossoms open. You're all fit, my  iriend, only a little burned out by that<=  [uick fever."  Then it was arranged" that he should  <eturn to his pleasanl country home'be-  rond the city, and that a young interne  if the hospital should make him a long  *i3it, to  keep him company and watch  tver him.    The" day  before he was   to  oavo for good  tho cool,' placid hospital  <oom he was wheeled out upon tho terrace beside'the wing of the building that  he might sniff the May tonic in the nir,  nnd gain strength before taking his journey.    There, upon  the  terrace, he' saw  many  patients  from   the  public  wards,  convalescents,'- lying  in   long   chairs  or  shuffling to and fro.   They were dressed  in motley blanket wraps, and  the men  were   unshaved.      When   the    stranger,  gracefully  dressed   and   freshly   shaved,  was wheeled  among them; the convales--  cents stared at him with languid, invalid  curiosity;  and  he   stared   buck   with  a  fleeting thought, upon the irony of unequal  distribution,     thrusting    its  face  among the'sick and feeble.   .  His eyes res'ted upon one immovable  bundle huddled in the shelter of the wall.  An old, wrinkled and painful face  emerged at the lop of the bundle. The  man's eyelids opened and shut automatically, and his breath came feebly with  much effort.    Tie was a consumptive.  A young girl, with "a flaming bit of  ribbon oh nor hat, had come'to visit him  ���doubtless a daughter. Her vivid, restless eyes followed ihe stranger rather  than the consumptive's bloodless' faco.  He watched her with understanding, uncritical eyes. ITc knew that she turned  to life and sought to avoid the'look of  death. Soon she went, and the stranger  spoke to' the consumptive.  "This is fine weather for us all," he  said.  "It  makes���no "difference.    It   is���all  the���same,"   gasped     the     consumptive-  fipasmodically.  "Oh," he replied good-naturedly, "tomorrow you will feel differently."  "Even they say that no longer. I care  not."  "Your daughter, eh? You would not  leave that pretty girl alone���"  The consumptive's lips trembled, aud  foe interrupted shrilly:  "She will go as her mother went. 3  cannot save her!"  Between gasps he told his fears to Unsympathetic stranger. This daughtei  the sole child of a weak woman who had  abandoned her and him, was now unfolo  'ing the meretricious bloom of her moth  er.  "But she must even take what lies in  side her," the consumptive ended indif  ferently.    "I can do no more now."  "Suppose someone should take you  .place? Should do for the girl all tha  |can be done? Give her a good home an.  ���start her well?"  ��� For a moment  the sharp-set feature  :of the consumptive relaxed, and his oy.'  ��� lids stayed open.  ;    "She might be saved!" he  whispered  ;"But who can-do that now?"  I    "II" tho stranger exclaimed.  "You?" the consumptive asked won  ���deringly". "Why, why do you��� Al  1 well,.I-don't know. She must suffer a  nil do in this life."  The momentary pasuion died from hi.  face, and he sank back numb. Soon h<  roused himself and said complainingly:  "Tlie sun has gone���I am cold.: W-h,*i  doesn't someone wheel me into the su>  -.iway from this cold wall?"  The stranger moved him gently inti.  the sunlight, perceiving that illness h.i<"  mercifully simplified life for him and reduced'his desires to a few that miglr  easily be satisificd.  That night the consumptive-died, i  ���great peace, the breath fading from hi ti  easily. Tlie stranger, as he left th"  hospital, asked to see the dead one. Tin;  body lay In. the morgue���a cold, whit'  room.  "Here, again," thought the man, .while  he gazed at the composed features o  the corpse, "God has ordered wisely tlii  'iifllcult matter of breaking with life. , II  takes from us each desire, one by one,  .1rid leaves us with a calm vacancy 0.  content, unmoved by the tendered pas-  sions of our hearts. And this great gift  of peace, He gives at last generously to  all!"- ���".���_ .:  Nevertheless, there was the living woman to be cared for by living hands.  So pondered the idle invalid pacing  back and forth between the tulip-beds of  bis garden. What more? He cairied an  open letter, written in a childish scrawl  dome ^lirjes glowed and quickened his  blood. "The rhododendron flames like  fire over the mountain-sides, and the  peach blossoms are like perfumed gownti"  Jt ended with a shy girl's bit ot sentiment: "I hope they will'give me my old  ward at the hospital: it will not be.so  lonely, there, when ,1 go back ne-\f  month."  The pleasant smile on his face faded  quickly as hq thought: "She is' near the  end of her candy now, and another box  will never saoni so good as that one.  When she gorsi back to the hospital  round, her heart will he warm for a few  days, ar.d ihen she will, like all the rest.  iry to get enough fun to make the work,  go down."  , He ui.'iii-d to the agreeable young interne, .who ;iis also strolling in the garden. -'''\ly friend, rend this and tell me  what you make of the girl."  "Ah/" the interne answered,, rapidly  scanning the writing, "the Utile drudge  ���that's-what the nurses called her. Not  very clover or attractive."  "An unattractive, dull woman  has no  fight    to   OKiaC?"  , "J s-.'ppose not���ultimately tho variants from the typo will be extinguished.  I mean lh.it complex type we.call a national ideal���in matters of sex selection  varied, but singularly tenacious. ' When  that elimination  takes place, 1  think���"  "Friend"���his host waved n hand dis-  tracteiny���"spare me. You clever youngsters describe the universe in a hideous  vocabulary. ' You call ii, science, and  worship it. It is a disease. ]My little  drudge has n heart; she feels and seen  things; she desires! Isn't that better  than 11 ripe figure and 11 smooth skin���I  mean for the rnco, my hoy, for the race?"  The young interne smiled indulgently  at his host's foolery, and fingered a letter of his own, one of many that he received. .   '  lot atoms'the young man was\ about tc  , indertakc, at lea^,t for the young man  i ft took wisdom to put a finger in the  'loom and neshape the fabric; and thi:  irichjinan, who had seen'the end of de-  .aire, began to doubt his wisdom.  So he answered gently: "We must  have her here to. make a visit. My sistci  will write to her at once."  The' young doctor's thanks rang out  joyously.  <    "You will make mo jealous, sir, for she  will like "you tremendously."  "Would   you   marry   11   woman  .who  'couldn't  make  you  jealous?"   his   ho��t  'asked blandly.'  III.  "Spring in a pleasant land, among the  'trees, above a broad river! What more  ���can mail dream of?"   .''_���.-'-  "Perhaps," continued his host, "you  have daily evidence to fortify your niind  ngainst mn?"  ���T.'^'v;^j. m.-.n   I'-V-.l-nd.  - "Why,- yea:   sirr m rrrcurrtffuT,''o*5,'' ��o  rarely beautiful, and she has a heart,,  too, as big as the land we live in!"  -������"Tell me," his host urged genliy. "I  believe I am getting an interest in heart*,;  ns a collector. Can you match my.  drudge?"  The young doctor flashed a scornful defiance at his host's comparison; but  yielded to his o.wii wish to tell of her.  She was the one mosit admired in the  little town where he had grown up and  where his parents lived. For her favor  be had hoped and struggled against many  competitors through the' years at college. Others were richer than he, and  all more light-hearted and companionable, he admitted; but .ho had won her  away from.them. Strange fortune that  he related reverently! in him she had  Been something to love;:and ho'bbre his  bend more loftily for- that. This he had  known for a year.        ,       -  -  The host refrained from asking ques-'  tiohs, although lie knew that more wa3  behind the simple tale. Meantime be  thought of the oddity of men, who strive  with one another for women, and are  proud lo carry, away the prize as' at a.  county fair���the prize of the hour, that  must fade and grow loss year by year!  When this young man's country'belle  had reached the ripeness of her powers,  the mother of his children, would it not  seem strange lo him to look back and  know that he had sought her, in part at  least, because she had been the prize of  his day? In love, it seemed, as in all  else, the worth of tho thing desired was  largely lent to it by public esteem. So i  merchants stock their stores, and few  customers give them the lie and refuse  their goods. So brave young men strive  for the Helen of their city and of their  day, and count it honor to carry her  away.  But he was too wise to tell hi*  thoughts, and the young man cleared his  throat and answered expectations.  "Yes, I Fjnid she had a heart! She  knows I want to marry her more than  anything in the world, but she wants me  to go abroad nnd study, do that work I  was telling you about the other day, and  not tie myself down first.  "But I don't know. She isn't very  happy at home, nnd two years is a long  time, and I could start right in there  at home and make a living from the first.  It's hard to tell which is best."  Generally   speaking,   that     was     the  truth,  his kindly  host reflected, deeply  interested in the old conflict between the  ideal of fame and the ideal of home. The  young doctor was one of those who their  elders say have "a future."   The young  man knew.it, and the. thought of thai  had comforted him many a dreary day  in the exclusive Eastern* hospital where  ���the unknown doctor who had no family  name that chimed when anyone spoke if,  had been made to feel that it was better  :to be born to a good name in this life.  i though you be a fool, than to be a genius.   Now, should he demonstrate to the  ��� supercilious  that -he   was  a  genius,  01  jmarry and get his comfort.and happiness?'  iwhieh  lay   three   hundred   inilepj south-  ���southwest in a little river town of'Perm-  isylvania?  ���j    The young man's brows knit, as hi-v  ���;eyes   searched  the   dark    Sphinx, !'thr,!  iknowing beast who never answers!  i    "I should do as she says," the host ad  , vised cautiously.    "Fame will not pric!  ;.vou far, but ehe will!"  j    A rovclation of existence, as the mno  I dance of atoms in obedience to the call  j of tliemothcrs of the race, crossed lm  ; fancy.   Evidently the thing to downs tr  I dance hard, and win one of the mother:  i of tho race at the end.  /    "If I eould only take her over,' too  fBiit I shall have to borrow tho money tc  tal-*' myself over, even!"  !   ]% did not know what a temptation bY  was plaoing before his kindly host.   Thf  latter itched for his check-book; a month  before, when he'bad spoken with the lit  tie nurse, he would have yielded inconsiderately with the crude wish to make  mere joy.   Now he refrained, wisely &'<:  dining to  interfere with  the  fabric 01  Fate until ho wag more sure of the ro  suit.    The world  hinged on that dance  The evening glow lay upon tho valley  ��� at their feet, filling it' with peace. ��� Tho  one disturbing-clement in the scene' win  ��� the, evening train winding its w.iy slowly  :up grade from the distant city, bearing  messages and fruits out of the turmoil.  At the height of the. grade it stopped and  puffed a while, and then pa-ncd on  around the hill to other hoiizons.   ,  The two, men thought their thoughU  each lo himself. The young doctor  dreamily fancied his fair Helen queening  it in the little river town; he pictured  her here in this comfortable mansion.

But   the   older  1111111,  drcaining  in   the'  exquisite evening peace, recalled that,on'  the next day ho must return, to the city,  'which .seemed  fo him now to be a  very  caldron  of  hell.

And he remembered how lie had drunk with 'bin  friend very many pleasant wines, each  drop of which had turned to rank poison  and corrupted that friend's mind aiid  body.

"According to Hroif Wisby. in the "Independent," an incident " which King,'  Christian of Denmark never tires of tei'l-  ing ns a good joke on royalty occurred  when he and his oldest sbn, the Crown  Prince Fredcrik, accompanied the late  Czar Alexander JII. of Kuasia on a pedestrian tour in Dcnmnrk. Weary of walking, they asked a peiitutt to >��ive them  a ride home,- to which he assented. It  was evident from the peasant's manner  that he had no knowledge who were his  august passengers. The King* made up  his mind to play a practical joke on the  man, but as it happened the man turned  the joke on the King. Nudging the Czar  with liis elbow, the King s.iid to the  peasant: "Good man, tell me have you  ever seen the Orown Prince of Denmark?"  "Crown Pete? No," responded the man"  his answer being a vernacular nun on  the Crown Prince's title; "but I know lie  lives up there in Die c.i*Llu.''  "Well, I nm the' Crown Prince of Denmark," announced the holder of that  title, restraining him>elf from laughter  with great difficulty.  "And I am the King of Denmark,"  supplemented King Christian, impies3ive-  ly.  "And I am the.Czar of llussia," broko  in the late Czar with his barbarous pronunciation of Danish, which on the  tongue of the present Czar, Nicholas,  sounds like that of u native.  The peasant looked them over slowly,  one by one, with a mischievous eye, and  -barely removing- the pipo stem, he said  in a slow, crooning voice:  "Weel-a-weoi! . lf you're the Crown  Pete, andyou're the King Bee, and that  is the G'zarri 0' Kussi.ilnnd, then���I am  the Imperor'o'.'Chiniilil"  John Clemens, who iai ninely-seveij  years old, says that work is the greatest  promoter of long life. He is still hale,  and hearty, and looks back over n lifo  well sprinkled with misfortunes with  satisfaction and contentment, lie *dill  works, and says he hopes to work for a  good .many'years more. Hiy rules for  long life are simple, and, as explained by.  him, are ns follows:  Work is the key to a long life.  Work  is  natural  exercise.  Work creates a natural appetite.  Work bring? restful sleep.  Work fortiQes against disease.  Work brings happiness and prosperity.'  Eat with modern lion.  Eat whenever you arc hungry.  Eat wholesome food  Eat seasonable vegetables.  Drink whatever you, wish, moderately.  Never drink to excess.  Avoid excitement and late hours.

As I stood by that ragged bed in the  bare, miserably furnished room, and  looked down on that desperate battle vvrtti  death, I could not but wonder how auv  man with money at command could end  bis life in such untrttei able, squalor. A  ragged atrip of carpet lay On the gnmj  boards, a cracked baiin atood on an up  ended soap box in one corner, a 1 uddb  of patched and threadbare garments la)  on a chair in another corner, and the  only attempt at decot.ition wn=�� a pho  tograph of my uncle, taken God know-  when, which glowered out of a tarnrshed  copper frame on the dusty mantelshelf.

When I entered Mr. Armbrust's private^ office J .saw that he wa3 noti alone.  Seated in one of the deep leather arm  chairs was an elderly man, with -a keen,  clean-shaven face. He looked like an  American, and yet there was something  (indefinably foieign about him.  "Sit down, Mr. Lawlor," said my employer. "I am about to, entrust a somewhat difficult task to you.

E.vl., wntes :���The season is near  when the ewes must be'cpupled if full'  profit is to be made irom the Hock,  The early lamb is- worth twice as  much as the late one, and is moic  safely reaicd. Thus the choice ot the  ram and its introduction to the flock  is a timely matter for consideration at  the present moment. As to biccd, it.  docs nol matter' veiy much, unless thii  IS/a main point 111 keeping the sheep.  If the flock is pare bied, 01 course, the  breed is to be kept up, but even then  it is good policy always to get .a lain  from another flock than 'from '-'youi  This is an axiom which pciiai,i->  a good flock.,. Choose a well-formeo,  solid-bodied ram, with short legs and  small, well-shaped head. 'The age of  the ram is of great importance, for upon this to a very gieat extent will depend the sex of the forthcoming  lambs.  There are many supposed laws of  breeding. One of them is a wise pi o-  vision of natuic for tlie preservation of  the species. When any 1 ace is in danger of extermination for any cause ihis  law will "operate to accrue the extension of.its existence in some way.  'When food is abundant and the tace is  vigorous we expect it to increase most  rapidly. Their the younger males, active and full of cnergv, monopolize the  females and drive off the old males.  ,The result is a much greater proportion of female biitlis than of male,  even to the extent of thice lo one. On  the other hand, ewes served by an old  ram produce an equal proportion of  male biiths. The breeder, then who  .wants his flock" to irrcreasc will choose  young, vigorous rams, and will fe^d  tlie'flock liberally, so as to preset ve the  conditions suitable foi rppid increase  of the stock 1 he breeder, on the other  hand, who makes his profit fiom young  rams vvhich he sells, will follow tbe opposite couise, and so increase his income from a surplus of those to be disposed!-of.  Probably the months of March and '  April  will  be the  pcnods  when  most  people wa-nt   tne lambs to come, while  theie are not a few in  the north and  east-who  consider May  eariy  enough.  This is a matter, ol course, for individual consideration.    The period of gestation in1" the ewe is five months.    November    coupling,     theiefoie,     means  April lambs;  December,  May    lambs, '  etc.  Good feeding of both ewes and ram  from this time on is a desideratum, and  the piesence in the flock ot a sturdy  young ram, under two years oi age. It  is essential that he be well grown 'and  matured. A ram eight; months old -  may be used, if it be growthy and vigorous; but one twrce( as old is greatly  to be preferred. ,  Feed^oats and wheat bran in preference   to . corn,  for   nitrogcncous   food  will be the best stimulant for the ewes,  and there isf-no  grain  that so stimu-  1 lates the sexual system as oats.   Fat is  , not desirable at  the  bi ceding ,season.  j The aim should be in,both    ram and  j ewes to get flesh and a'slrong nervous  1 condition.    The ewes    should    receive  a half,'pint of'oats and  the    same, of  bran every day from now on, while a  pint of whole oats  and as much brans ,  a day will .not be too much lor a vigorous young ram     lf tne owes arc not  m  breeding'condition,   on  account  of  , neglect 01  pocn  pasture, or undue c.t-  j posure, one 01  two giains of    cantiia-  ndes   given   lo   Iho   owei   v. ill   usually  -bring them  inlo  condition tor piompt  _  -i.��,<..i..,e, l��� n\r\A~A -ti -is_Obsefvetl they  arc lax in this respect With intelligent feeding, largt ly of 'i;'ts, :t will  seldom be necessary to resent to drugs.

The oruinaiy farmer breed  er wrll not, however, piobably need tc  get an imported animal. He can get  something good enough fiom thos.  who make a business of supplyuig.fiisi  class males for bi ceding purposes.  Close breeding is more disastrous to  sheep than to cattle or hogs.  The best results arc obtained by  choosing a sound, well-formed, vigorous animal, rather than a bigger one  without these qualities.,'.- This..is an  axiom which also works with other-  classes oflive stock besides, sheep.,  The fleece is to be studied, for flic  lambs will take after the ram in respect  to wool mostly, if the animal is from  Results from common soaps;  eczema, coarse hands, ragged  clothes,  shrunken   flannels.  REDUCES  EXPENSE.  A��U for tbe Octagon Bar  A missionary In China was endeavoring  to convert .one of the natives. "Suppose  me Christian, me sro to heaven?" remarked Ah Sim "Yes," replied the mis-  Honaiy.* "All lite," retoited the heathen,  'but what for you iro let Chinaman intoi  Amelica'vvhen you let him into 'heaven?"'  "Ah," said the missionary with fervor,  "there's no labor party in heaven."  Abraham Benedict of the New York'  bar tella the story of a joung man who  entered a street car with a dog and attracted the attention of an Irishman,  who enquired what kind of a dog it was.!  The -young man replied: "'It is a cross'  bctvyeen iln ape and an Irishman." "Then'  we are both related to it," responded  the Irishman.  The'teacher of a country school asked'  his pupils ope day it any of them could,  tell hirri .who Joan of Arc was. Tho  question was folloived by profound silence. Some of the pupils staTed at tfc��  teacher, and some tuined and stared at'  one* another, as if seeking information,  in the, faces around them. Finally a boy.  burst out' with:. ."Oh, yes, I knowj die  was Noah'a wife."  Once,'when-t��ey weTe talking liter*-:  ture, Mrs./ Isobel Strong said to Robert;  Louts Stevenson: "At least you have no;  mannerisms/'- Whereupon Stevenson  tookiaVcopy of; his own "Merry Men,".;  which.Bhe was reading, out of her hahdfl,  aiid read, "It was a wonderful clear,  night of stars." "Oh," he said, "how-  many, many times I have written 'a won-,  derful clear night of stars.'"  In 1885 an Englishman and his wife  were being driven about Ireland by a'  rather melancholy jarvey, who could eee  no silver lining to the cloud overshadowing his country and his own particular  trade. "Never mind, Pat," said the Englishman, "you'll have a grand time  when they give you Home Rule." "Bo-  dad, yer banner, and we will���for a  week.'* "Why for a week?"
