When the "statement "Freddie  Gorrell has ,i'jcideiitly,shot himself"  was passed through the town Tuesday evening, and it was known that  one of the most popular employees  of the Government Telegraph Service had been seriously -injured  near Pike River, a shock was felt  throughout the whole community,  and anxious enquiring friends besieged the Telegraph office "[until a  late hour, for further information as  to the condition of their wounded  comrade. It was there learned that  the accident had occurred in the  early part of the afternoon, and at a  point four miles below Pike River;  that Mr. Gorrell had managed to  make his way alone and uriiided, to  Pike River and report tbe accideut  by telegraph to the Atlin office; aud  that medical aid was being rushed to  him as fast as possible.     '.>���' ���>- ���  The wound was known to be a  serious one, and the anxiety of his  friends remained unabated until the  arrival in Atlin at noon Wednesday  of Dr. McDiarmid and Mr. Gagne,  bringing with' them the injured  man. It was then seen that Mr.  Gorrell was iu a most critical condi-  ion. The accident which ltd to  Mr. Gorrell's death occiined in u  vers' simple manner. He was tra-  vcrsinjs'a sicclioii ol ihc lelegiaph  line south of I'lk'-.i Kivci when he  noticed a tree, hravih laden with  snow, overhanging the \\ire. !,vor  the purpose of dislodging the .snow  he struck tlie tiee a sharp blow  with the butt end of a 22 Winchester rifle. The impact of the blow'  exploded the caitridge, * the bullet  piercing the abdominal cavity in the  neighborhood of theVstoinach. Although mortally wounded, Mr.  Gorrell, alone and unaided, bravely  made his way back to' Pike Ri\er  telegraph station, from which pciiit  he advised his Atlin colleagues ol  the accident. ' .  ,  Dr. McDiarmid, accompanied by  Mr. Gaguc.of 'the local telegraph  ataff, left inunediatly for Pike River  to render medical -assistance and  bring the injured man to the hospital for treatment. As already stated, they arrived here at noon Wednesday, but it was found, that owing to the patients enfeebled condition, operative measuoes were impracticable,' and notwithstanding  all that medical science and kind  and skillful nursing could do, Mr.  Gorrell passed peacefully away at  4.20 p,m. Wednesday.  "Freddie" as he was generally  called, was popular with all with  whom he came in contact; while his  genial disposition and warm hearted nature endeared him to a large  circle of friends, who deeply sym-  pathizev and mourn with the relatives.  (The late Mr. Goirell has been  prominently connected with the  Government Telegiaph Service iu  this district since the construction  of the line four yeats ago. He'was  a native of Westpott.

A well-known English surgeon was imparting sonic clinical instruction to half  r dozen1 students, who accompanied him  In his rounds the other day. Pausing  B-t   the   bedside,  of   n ( doubtful   case,   he  ' paid: "Now, gentlemen, do you thinx  this Is, or is not, a case for operation'!"  One by one tlio students made their diagnosis, and all of than answered in  Ihe negative. "Well, gentlemen, you are  ��11 wrongs" said the wicldcr of the free  knd flashing scalpel, "and 1 shall operate  to-morrow." "No, you .won't," said llic  patient, as he rose in his bed; "six to  ��� one is a good majority; gimme my  clothes." ,  Thiers,  the French statesman, was a.  i victim of many whimsies. None had  Stronger hold on him, says Moris. Gabriel  Hanotaux in" "Contemporary France,"  than his desire to get everybody to re-  1 cognize his universal competency. Of  "��� 'an applicant for the post of director at  the Sevres manufactory, Thiers" said:���  "He is no more made for that part than  I' for ���" and then, he stopped. "Ah,  bhl Monsieur Thiers," said his interlocutor, "you find it hard to say what you  could not do." "That's the truth I  Hhat'3 the truth!" cried the statesman,  gleefully. One day Thiers said, speaking  0f a man who had been raised to a high  function:���"lie is no more suited for  that office than 1 am to be a druggist;  and .yet," he added, catching himself up,  '1_do know chemistry!"  Chekib Bey, the Turkish Minister lo  Washington, attended in Philadelphia  the recent launching of the Turkish wa-v-  ehlp  "Medjidia"   at (Ihe   Cramps'   ship-,  ?' ard.   During the luncheon following the'  aunch, Chekib Boy animadverted for a  ���   moment on the beggars of Philadelphia  .    "You have here," he said, "an enterprising and intelligent collection of beggars.  ,One of them approached me this morning.   He told a moving tale of misfor-  ^unej' then   he  asked   me   for   a  little  Cioney.   I put my hand in my pocket to  find that I was altogether out of chanije.-  ('My man,' I said, '1 have nothing for you  now, but in an hour I shall be passing  ,<ftis way again.  Then, I promise you,  you  Whall get something from me.'   'All right,  [gir/ said the beggar; 'but all tlie same,'  <>he   added,   fretfully,   'you wouldn't be-  ���'lieve the amount of credit I give in this  ���way.'"  A remarkable figure in Oxford University was Dr. W. Jacobson, Michell's predecessor as vice-principal of "Magdalcno  o|Hall, subsequently Regius Professor of  jDivinity, and finally Bishop of Chester.  'Jacobson was a good scholar and a- well-  iread divine, always able to set forth tho  (various forms which Christian doctrine  had assumed in the various Christian  ���communions. But it was hardly ever  jpossible (so it was said and believed) to  fet at his own opinions. Mic-hell usid  , o tell a story in illustration of Jacob-  (son's reputation in this respect. Meeting one day a member of tho university,  iho was asked by him whn.t lie thought  'of the weather, "Well," said Michell,  ."I have just met Jacobson, and he said  [ho thought it was going to rain."  /'What?" was the reply; ''you don't mean  ito Say that Jacobson committed himself  ;to any opinion ?o definite as that?"  The artist Wlr'stlci's laxity in the mat-  ,tcr of engagements was notorious. No  'one ever knew if he were coming or lot  'to affairs. But his point of view is explained in his answer to n friend of his,  jwho knew that lie had an engagement  'to dine with some swells in a distant  part of London, and who felt that it  i\vas most'impolitic for Whistler to of-  ���fend them. It was giowing late, and  yet Whistler was painting away, madly,  ���intently, "iiy dear fellow," he said to  'him at last, "it is frightfully late, and  iyou have to dine wiLliLndy Such-a-Onc.  'Don't you think you'd better sLop?"  '"���Stop?'5 fairly shrieked Whistler..  "Stop, when everything is going so beau  tifulty? Go nnd stub" myself with disgusting food when 1 can paint like Ihw!  1 :Noverl Never!

All   nt  once   the  'sound of a band of music was heard in  ,the street.    The King sprang  up   and  'brought  his hand   to   his   forehead   in  the military salute. "The flag, sir!    tho  flag!"     the    boy    exclaimed.     "Saluto  it." '  The sculptor     had     found     tho  pose he sought, and  made  the  statue  represent the King in the act of saluting his  country's  flag.    As he. was at  work the boy asked.the artist, "Aro you  going to make me big?"    "The statue  will   represent   your   Mnjesty   a   little  larger than you, are," said the sculptor,  "Well,"   said   the   royal   youngster,   "I  want you to make me very, big with a  long mustache."

Tlie escape from death of Captain ^n-  gcllandb of the German'iron sailing vessel "Erndle," news of which is reported  from Dantzic, will hardly find its equal  in the nnnals'of life-saving Tho "Jirmllr"  left Mcrnel with a cargo of timber  on April 10. During the next two days  the vessel was exposed to a very rough  sea, ���which kept tlie crew of forrr men at  iwork day and night. On April IS, just  as the captain had retired to his cabin,  the storin suddenly became so violent  that the vessel capsized. Tho crew were  swept away and drowned, and the captain -was imprisoned in the ship's hull,  the hatches having been closed tightly,  'by the sudden pressure of the water.  The wreck drifted along, keel uppermost,  until April 30, when it was sighted by  the Norwegian''"steamship "Aurora" oiT  the fishing village of Rixhoeft. The  steamship immediately- proceeded to secure the "wreck, and while thus engaged  the orew heard repeated knu.iks from  the inside against the iron bottom. They  also noticed a noise resembling a human  voice crying "Ifelp." A hole was drilled  in the iron plates, and 'this was hardly  accomplished, when a human finger appeared in the opening. Then Captain  Engellnndt announced himself to the astonished sailors as s.ife and sound within the ship's hull. He said he had food  enough for three days, but during the  last 24 hours had been compelled to  drink sea water because the tanks were  empty. The Norwegian steamship's artificers were not prepared to make tho  hole in the iron bottom large enough to  permit of the imprisoned man's liberation, and therefore tlie wreck was towed  to Dantzic. Here tlie vessel wac raised,  and thus ended Cnplnin Engeliam 's captivity, which lasted twelve weary days  and eleven nights. Tlie hardy seaman is  none the worse for the fatigues he underwent. During the day he worked hard  to make his presence inside the vessel  known to passing ships, bnt'at night he  slept peacefully with tho water under,  neatk and the iron roof above,  a>ld the newspaper men that "the accurate -lory would appeal to them as  journalists," viz., that the news came  through the medium oi a small Dutch  newspaper. The news was published in a  single line: 'Gri>atrvic(oiy of the English  at Waterloo.' His"grandfather, who was  'the owner of some ships, told his captains that whenever they went any where  they were always to bring him the latest  newspapers. One of these trusted captains arrived with a' pa.per announcing  the great victory. His grandfather, who  believed, as they all did now,,in the accuracy of all newspapers, immediately  took thp news to the Treasury, and gave  tlhe information to Lord Liverpool. He  did not tell him how he knew it, and his (  news was scouted because the intelligence  ha"d arrived of the defeat of tho English  troop3 on the previous day."  curious Bits of New*  'jfSn  Where Perfumes Come From.

To play the game of golf very littlr-  outfit is necessary. You merely require  a ball, a club, a boy, and a bottle of  Scotch.  Golf is played on a green. You Jusl  go on the green. The boy puts the ball  on a little hillock of .sand, and all you  have to do is to hit it. Not the boy or  the sand, but the ball.  Hit the ball as hard as you ^n, and  send it as far as you can. Then let the  boy go and find it. Meanwhile, you consult the fourth requisite for the game,  'the t.-otle of Scotch.  Golf is a special Scotch game.  The boy is called a caddie, nnd you ran  readily sec that he is a very useful tiling  to have about you. He carries all the  implements of the game (except that  fourt one), places the ball for you, and  hunts for it afterwards, lf you arc o  partit, lar person, the caddie can be commissioned to swear for you. But most  golfers prefer to do their own swearing.  They find it useful, as an aid to the real  science of the sport.  In putting tbr ball into 'the hole it is  customary to uso the club. But, if you  can get the caddie to turn round and  look at tho prospect at the critical moment, you will find it mucn easier to  shove the ball into the hole with the toe  of your boot.

Leopold de Rothschild, in his speech as  chairman of the Newspaper Press Fund  dinner in London the otlier day, demolished the tradition about the way in  which his 'grandfather obtained advance  news of the victory at Waterloo. According to the current story, which even  the "Encyclopaedia .Britniiniea" repeats,  Nathan Maver Rothschild was present at  the battle, "and hurried ���back to London  as soon as he saw it was decided, gettmi;  tlrere some hours before the news became known, and making enormous. pro-  Ota by-buying up stocks.   His grandson  "Edward," asked Genovieve Zoremus,  "do you think a girl should propose?"  "Why, no, indeed 1' It is beneath woman's dignity."  "There, nowl" oaid the gentle girl;  "1 told mamma she was wrong. She said  that when a young man came to see a  girl every night in the week for two  years, and stayed for dinner every Sunday, and smoked her father's oigars, and  always happened around whenever we  ;had any company, so he would be invited  to go to the-Uieater'-with us, it was the  girl's privilege to take it for granted  that he was sincere in his attentions and  ask him whether he preferred a wedding-trip, or would rather just settle  down to home life in a neat little cottage."

The inventor of the watch is a mystery, though the place of its invention  i3 assigned to Nuremberg. Tlie first  watches were called "Nuremberg eggs,"  the first part of the name showing whero  they were made, the second tolling of  their shape. It was not until tlie invention of the spiral spring in the fifteenth  century that watches became conveniently portable, and from that time the  size decreased, while the timekeeping  ir.pchanisra improved.  Women are not good tipp-rs and  lack of "tips" is said to be . ^sponsible  for the withdrawal"of twenty waitresses  from the dining-room of the Hotel Martha'' Washington in New. York. The'  hotel is exclusively for women, and when  it was opened last March one of the features was tho Colonial dining-room on  the ground floor, "with twenty buxom  young women in picturesque uniforms.  AH went well at first, but soon the  guests of'the Martha Washington forgot  to give a dime here or a quarter there.'  Later on it became positively out of  fashion to "tip" in the hotel; but it  seems the fashion of scolding and complaining grew, at least the girls-say so.  Then the girls hel��l a meeting-and decided to walk out. The management of the  hotel declares that the girls were discharged because the hotel wanted to try  men waiters.  At a recent meeting of the Zoological  Society of France Monsieur Kacovitza,  the naturalist of the "Belgica-'expedition,  declared his belief in the existence of  the great "sea-serpent." He quoted with  approval the views of a Dutch naturalist, Oudemans, who holds that the so-  called sea-sorpent is not a reptile, but a  mammal belonging to the order of the  pinnipeds, which includes the seals. It  oomeuhat resembles in shape the extinct  Plesiosanrus. It probably attains a  length of 200 feet, the head and neck  taking one-fourth of the whole, the  trunk one-fourth and ths tail one-half.  It never approaches^a'^coast except in  pursuit of the fUh"<on which it feeds.  Monsieur ,Racovir'za quoted the serious  and circumstantiaKjrencit of a French  torpedo-boat commander who chased a  pair of these creatures in the China Sea,  and unsuccessfully fired shells-at them.  A high silk hat, probably the first ever  worn in the smnil town of Fa����n, west  of Houston, Tex., was responsible the  other day for the death of Philip Bu'ntz  of New York, who was traveling for a  Bible publishing house in tho East. Iiis  attire was that of a clergyman, and when  he appeared in Pagan he was the center  of attraction. That night Buntz walkad  rrp to the bar in one of the saloons where  the cowhoys were drinking and ordered  lemonnde. The bartender repeated the  order in a tone of voice sufficient for all  in the crowded barroom to hear. One of  the cowboys insulted the wearer"of tho  silk hat. The remark was resented, and  someone threw a lariat over the shilling  mark. Buntz showed fight and was set  upon. In the mclec he was struck over  ���tlie head with a six-shooter, suffering a  fracture of the skull.

Tiio spot chosen for tho duel was a  clearing In iiho midst ot tho' ruins.  Ou one sfdo wore high, perpendicular, icy crags; cu I hu other a steep,  ���lippery descent- its only  canopy,  (ho  ttarry   heaven      and     tho       meeting  ranches of itlu- dark pine frees.  'A low cry, Which Ulmont instantly  tupprossocl^ sprang to  his   lips.  "Heaven��� eon it ho an ill omen?"  b'e muttered, thoughtfully. "This is  the exact spot Loraine saw in her  treaml"  Wylmer iLeo touched him on tho  Urm.  "They are coming, Ulvcsford," ho  ���aid.  'Another moment Heath Hampton  De (Risnar, and a small, wiry individual, enveloped in a dark cloak,- and  earrying a Mack leather case, appeared, who was introduced to Ulmont as the surgeon.  Few words passed between them.  Proud, cold, defiant, and bitter, they  stepped rorth, swords in' hand, out  Into the moonlight.  IA silence, still as death, lasted for  ft second only. Then the combatants  toad crossotl swords and the teniblo  work began; both felt the strength of  bis opponent's arm.  iHeaiti Hampton was. sure this  iwould be a victory easily won. On'y  one ;ibought rushed madly "'through  Ulmont. Ulvcsford's brain��� his wife,  his ibeautiCul Loiaine, and his mother.

As Ulmont looked down upon her  he noticed all'tho dainty bloom had  vanished from ibolh cheek and lip.  like a delicate blossom in a suddon  frost. ,  "My sweet*.Loraine," he whispsiod,  reverently, bending his head and caressing hor white brow.  -As his hand clasped hers, a low,  itartlod cry Jell from her lips.

For a moment tho 'husband -and  vlfo slood facing each other in ominous Micnco. x,  "Will you tell rac how this enma  aame upon your hand, Ulmont?" sho  asked.'  For ono brief instant tho impulse  seized him to tell hor all. no couid  not endure the glance of horror such  t recital would bring to those bluo  syes; Loraine, so pure and artless;  what could he tell hor what ho  hail done for her sake?  Ho 'glaneed down at the hand whi'h  the two dark spots defaced, qu'te at  a loss how to account for them. His  quick, keen perception soon showed  him a  loophole.  "I hav6 been on a ramble -to 'the  old abbey ruins," he replied, car jless-  ly; "I may have touched one of tho jagged rocks in passing, but I really  have no recollection of doing so; in  taot, I had not noticed my hand until  you called my attention  to it."  Loraine took her handkerchief from  her pocket���a small, delicate, flimsy  affair of lace and! perfume.  "Let nie bind it up for you, 'dear,"  she said, earnestly.  Ulmont looked at the tiny bit of lace  with an amused smile.    '  i "I assure you, my sHveet Loraine,  you are making a mountain out of  a   mole-hill."   j   ' <   '  fle drew the white arms around his  to his arrn,��one instant only he press- ' neck and the golden head dropped on  ed iiis hand to his feverish, brow;    another instant and a   terrible impreca  tion iburst    from    Heath    Hampton's  his 'breast.  "You know you are my world', 'Ulmont,"   she  whispered.   "Why   rhould  lips, as his arm dropped heavily to \ I not be solicitious about you? I;  his .side.

His sword fell to the icy ground  with a dull clang..  "You have won the game this f:me,  UlvesLord," he cried, hoarsely, bitterly, and still defiantly; "but mark me,  there is still a   future."  "There is also a present," responded Ulmont, sternly.  Seeing further satisfaction was at  ton end, as ho was notf one of those  (who would pursue a worsted foe, nor  trample a fallen enemy, Ulmont  turned on his heel, and followed by  /Wylmer iLee, left tho spot, leaving the  Burgeon nnd the count with Heath  Hampton and the solemn hush of the  night.  A half hour later Ulmont entered  the room where Loraine still sat, her  teyhite hands clasping the book which  lay in her lap.  "'Truant, 'how late you are," she  Maid, playfully; "where were you?"  "I waa unexpectedly detained," he  replied.  "Thank you, dear, for your very  lucid explanation; I know all about it  now," she said, swoolly, with a pretty  arched smile.  "I have certainly explained all  JfTOrth knowing," ho said. Loraine  jwas sure she noticed a forced calm-  jaoas in his voice.  , (Bhe turned on tho light and looked  St her husband.

"What iB the matter, Ulmont, my  Kusband?" she cried, springing to his  ��ide, speechless with terror; "ha3 anything happened?

He did not care to tell her the  iruith��� just then; not until he knew  more of Heath Hampton's condition.  Tfiey sat for a few moments in silence; then Ulmont turned and look-  Bd upon Ills beautiful young wife in  her artless,    peerless beauty. She  ���rone & soft,.shining, violet silk;   and  (ust where eho sat the lights from  he-colored lamps fell full upon her;  pno great dash of purple lay at V her  teat, a (bar.of crimson quivered on  her breast, and on the beautiful head  there shone a glow of gold; her lovely  faoe was' pale with wonder, yet it  ���earned like a fair, tender flower  armong the mystical lights.

For answer she led him to the win-  ������Bbw. ���'-,,  .- "Do you see that paln.serene moon,'  Bhe said, "struggling athwart thoso  fleecy clouds? The broad glare of  kv may. hide-it from our sight,   and  ii  resemble  the sun  shining behind  cloud."  "That is certainly one way of looking at it Loraine," he replied, "but remember, still waters run deep. There  are people who love intensely, yet  have no power of expressing their affection."   ���   i   i  Loraine pondered many a time over  her husband's remark, and wondered  more than once what he had meant  toy it. '  Ulmont Waa more tender than  usual, if that were possible, but beneath it all Loraine read' a strange  unrest. w ' i  He scarcely smiled, until the towering .heights and sunny vale3 of  Switzerland had faded from his sight.  ��� a ���     ;   ��� ���        �� ���  Uimont and Loraine reached Boston late in the fail.  The siky was blue, but the air was  keen and sharp, and the hoar-frost  lay white on the ground; the' trees,  and the housetops, and shone like  diamonds in tho sunlight on the  branching evergreens.  That was a coming home long to  be remembered. Everyone spoke of  the glowing beauty of the happy  young Wife and the lover-like devotion of the young husband1.  The two mothers 'watched their  ch'Mren with great contentment. Ul-  mont's mother declared it was quite  like living her own youth over again  to watch the pretty love- dream of her  son and his beautiful bride. Ye'  there was one circumstance which  puzzled hor��� there seemed to be some  secret thought pre^y ing upon his mind.  The day he had returned homo, n  greeting had been given him which  would have pleased a lord; yet, after  it was all over he had flunig himself  down on the sofa, and turned his raoe  to the wall, sayinir he "was lircd of  it all���he wanted to rest." An hour  latex, upon knealing beside him, hi5'  mother found the pillow, upon  which his fair head lay, w��t with  tears. Did this look like happiness  ���yet, why should he not be so?  There was another matter which did  not escape -thej-keen, watchful' eyes o'  his mother; she 'noticed how eagerly  Ulmont watched for the mails wl;i"h  brought the foreign' pnpors; she did  not fail to observe the look of relief  that crept: into his eyes as b'e.laid  them down, one toy one, still she made  no comment. Sho never remembered'  her son to have taken so much interest in foreign affairs before; she was  exoeed'higly puzzled. ,  One evening Loraine sat at the. pi-i  ano, hex white' fingers running idly!  over the- ivory keys.

Neither his young wife nor his mother heard the fervent "thank P.od"  ho breathed from hi- heart, although  no sound issued from his lips.  "1 always imagined him an -impulsive younig man," pursue-1 Mrs. Ulvcsford, calm'ly; "still, I never imagined  hrs rashness would lead him to s>uch  an end."  " "Surely he is not dead," , gasped  Ulmont, his impatience and intense  anxiety almost overpowering l.im; in  another instant he, was kneeling by  his mother's ride, eagerly scanning  the paper in her lap."  . No, not dead; t-he wound ,on the  hand had occasioned considerable losi  of blood,' ending the oncounter, kut  was "not necessarily considered dangerous, unless inflammation set in.

Ulmont heard it discussed on the  streets, in-'his mother's drawing room,  even his young wife, when they were  alone, seemed eager 'to speak of tho  one absorbing topic, .wondering who  the young and beautiful lady was,  and if she had loved Heath Hamilton.  Ulmont thought he would certainly go.mad. How little Loraine imag-  .ned she had toeen tho cause of that  :ombat,    against  which 'Ulmont" had  pitted  his very_ Ufa to protect      her  honor. ��� ,    ���        i  Soon after this an event happened  which had long been expected. Ulmont's mother, who had never b'.en  strong, when the leaves began to fall,  was laid at rest in the churchyard,  where the 'ladies of their race had  slumbered for long years. Otherwise,  everything moven on in the same  routine at the manor.  One December morning Mrs. Lorri-  mer had driven over from Lorrimer  Place to   see her daughter.  A deep sifcrw lay on the ground,  and the merry, jingling sleigh-bells  rang sharply out on the tnom.ng air.  It was just such a morning as brings  a flush to the cheek, brightness to the  eye, and a warm glow to the heart.  The sunshine gleamed ruddily  through the leafless branches of the  trees, and the deer bent their heads  to drink, breaking through the thin  ice that had formed over the clear,  glassy pfcols.  Never did Loraine look so picturesquely lovely as she stood at the win-  eow, gazing out upon the winter  landscape, her crimson robe forming  a glowing background to her fail  beauty. t  She was so gentle, so clinging, just  such a woman as men reverence, love  and protect.

As he turned an abiupt angle he  started back with a cry of suirnise-  before him, lying face downward in  the long daisy-studded grass, lay a  young girl, sobbing bitteily.  She was certainly a -stranger In  that locality; Abel never remembered  having scon hor before.  "Ch Id," said the old flute-maker  touching her gently "on tho shoulder,  "why do you weep 't Surely, youth cannot know so soon the bitter diegs  life's cup holds; why do you weep?"  He never forgot tho sad expression  on the beautiful face raised to his in  the gloaming; a sweet, foreign face,  white with anguish, yet perfect as n  marble statue.  .Tear drops quivered^on tho long,  dark lashes tha t veiled the beautiful, scornful, dark eyes.  For a moment only those eyes  searched wist Cully the rugged, yet  honest face before her.  She only shook,her head, and tho  tears flowed afresh, then a sudden  thought came to her.  , "Perhaps'you will tell mo, sir, what  I ought to do," she said, with a (tow,  pitilul sob. , "if aim helpless and cannot even think."    - c  "Perhaps I may be able to advise  you if you will tell ino your trouble ;  you forget that I do not know,", replied tho flute-maker, sealing himself on an adjreent rock. " Surely  you are not alone, !my child ?" he asked wonderingly.  "Yes, sir, 1 am all alono,"-she replied. "I will tell you how il cnlcr.e  about. Then, peril..ps, jou can tell  me what I ought to do. My husband, who had "l)2iiii called suddenly  home, gave mo a mile to bi.ng to his  old nurse in Silvernocik, with wham  T was to remain a few days until he  came for me.-'  Again the tears started to the lovely eyes, and hor vo.oo quivered ia ��  broken  ���������"^ i  i nave hu.t (lie address ho pave  me, and ���aud the money my husband  gave me 1^ must have ^'loft in tho  train."  Abel Moore was lost in bewilderment; he could not understand it.  She married I This young creature,  with the beautiful foreign face,  scarcely more than a child, married I  He could hardly credit what he heard  "Hdyo you no recollection of tho  na'me of the person you wish to find?"  he asked. '   '  ".None, whatever, sir."  ,  "Who is your husband, child,  what:  ia his name, I  mean ?"  "Alderic Ross, sir, and I aim his  wife, Izetta." \  She repeated tho words with a  simple, child-like dignity, as it the  words were the sweetest music to her.  "Mr. Boss, of where ?"  "That I  do not know, sir.''  .The old flute-imakeT was growing  each moment more mystified,  "Perhaps your own people could advise you best," he said,  thoughtfully.  He nnver forgot how tho beautiful  face turned away frolm him with tho  saddest cry he had ever heard from  human lips, as the words slowly  trembled on  tho white   lips.  "I have no ono, sir ; no one in all  the wide world but Hr   Ttoss."  Gradually he drew from hor her  story, that seemed li'ko a pago of  sad romance.  "I could find no one in Silvernook  who knew my hur.bind," continued l-  zotta, "though I went from houl-e to  house; then I tried so hard to think  what T should do, sir, until Alderic  came for me, without hums, friends,  or money."  "trow long havo you bcon in Silvernook?''  "Since early yesterday morning. I  could not find my husband's old  nurse, so I caan to this spot to (think  what was best to do."  "Have you been out in the cold and  darkness all night?" he asked.  , "Yes, sir; but I did not feci the  cold, and I hid my face among the  daisies to shut out the darkne3S until morning came again."  Abol Moore couid have wept for hor,  but one thought drifted across his  mind, the same thought that had come  to all who had heard: her story.  Poor child ! heaven heip her; 'she is  cast: drift on the world; whether  from  Colly   or    inexperience, they  could not tall; it  was hard to  judge  her.' '-V  The flutc-ffnaker hid his face in his  hands; he coutd see she loved 'this  man who had won hex lovo with all  the depths of her -young, trusting  heart.  It was one of tho cruelest of; tasks  to undeceive her; how could he tear  from her eyes the veil of innocence  and trust, showing hf-.r the cold,  mocking.world, thnt wuld laugh at  the woe which otro.ohwU out before  her? .  "Some villain has taken this means  of ridding himw.li- of this beautiful  o-irl."   he  thought.  "Oh,  Lord I"   cried  '-n  Abel, holdui'g up h'u hands to heaven,v,  "how  canst Thou have 'patience with ''.," / &  men?" /-i>\;$  He   \vondered   how   they   could   livo   A.V-'i-  and  breathe   God's  pure "air,   ���  while  such a  sin as this stained thoir souls.  "You must bide your time patiently until he comes, my poor child. Has  any thought occurred "to you as to  where you could go in tho moan-  time?"  "No, sir;   I had  not thought much '     i } '  of that.

Tells How  Pains of Twenty Years Standing  Vanished Before the Creat Kidney Remedy.  Fortune Harbor', Nfld., Nov. 9.1 ���  (Special).���There are a score oE people in this neighborhood who suffered  from Lame Back and other symptoms  of Kidney Disease and who are now  strong and healthy, thanks to Dodd's  Kidney Pills. One of the most serious cases cured is that of Mr.  Richard Quirk, and in an interview  says:  "I suffered for more than twenty  years from Lumbago and Kidney Dis  ease. I almost always had a severe  pain in the back, so severe that during intervals for years I was totally,  unable to work. ,  "Doctors and medicines gave me'  little relief and after ten or twelve  years I had almost made up my mind  that my trouble was incurable. Then  reading of cures by them led me to  try Dodd's Kidney Pill's. I had not  taken half a box before I experienced  relief and after using seven or eight  boxes I was a perfect cure and a new '  man.   The cure was permanent."  Cure your Backache with Dodd's  Kidney Pills and you will never have  Bright's Disease.  Enemies of Flirtir.gf.  Thirty-seven young men belonging to  ,l.c higher ranks of society in St. I'eters-  /.irg have organized an association called  the "Club of the Kncrnics of Tinting."

G  Continued good returns, from  both hydr.'.ulic and individual placer mining, not only stimulates tlie  operators, bur engages the attention  of outside capital and many enquiries are being made by would be investors.  Confidence is increasing daily, in  tlie mining' world as to the real value of, out deposits and there is a  general feeling among all Atlh.ites  that the prospecting stage has been  passed and ttiat, with our placer,  hydraulic, dredging,coal and quartz  propositions, only one result is possible and that is that Atlin will soon  become a great mining camp.  The installation of fourteen hydraulic plants, at a cost of approximately St,500,000 and of the monster dredge last fall which cost  $200,000, are expenditures which  prove that capital is becoming interested. These undertakings are  but fore-runners of what is coming.  The country has everything here  to ensure success, what is needed,  is more capital to develop, more  brains and'brawn to work. We  predict that not only will our output for 1904 pass the million murk  but that an era of prosperity, such  as even the most sanguine of 0111  pioneers never dreamed of, will be  commenced with tlie opening of Upcoming mining season.

Further, when I toll you  4hal tlie liend of the Mission, Sidi Abd  <sr Rahman Kintali, was the uncle of  tfhe third wife of nry Sheikh's father,  jt will be easily imagined, that El  Majeed had some grounds for the frequency of his visits to the mansion at  IPrince's Gate, arid was in no danger  H>f wearing his welcome thin there.  Myself, as it were vicariously, and by  Uh�� light   reflected   from   my   Moorisn  ffriend, became  something of. a persona  jrftta with the members of the Mission,  ��nd, as no other members of my family  ���were  then tin  town,   I   found it  easy,  Upon more than one occasion, to recotn-  jponae the hospitality   with   which   the  iMiasion welcomed mo at Prince's Gate,  bj  entertaining  old Sidi  Abd   er  Rahman and his followers in Sloane street.  Knowing,.something of Moorish  affairs  and customs, I   was   enabled  to   make  4hem very comfortable there/and I am  ��������ot- sure   whether any of  the more or  less   splendid   functions   in    which   our  ,Government   paid   honor to his Sharee-  fistn Majesty   of   Morocco,  through  his  ' kmlxissador,  were sources of more real  , enjoyment  to AM  er Rahman  and  his  marty than were the little informal reunions in my father's Sloane street resilience.  - Be that as' it mav, I am quite sure  Ifchat the authorities of our Foreign  Office had found much food for reflec-  ftion (could they have overheard them)  (In aorae of bhe conversations which  Jfcook place there between the members  'of the Mission and myself.

As a fact, I think my appeal  to his vanity won over Abd er Rahman  and gained the day for the Photo-  graphic Artist.

Its wonderful sh<-2'  ��� nd brilliance had attracted my after.  .Ion whilst the ambassador was beir  posed for his portrait.

But���  I would liave a word with thee, privately; Sidi." -  Tlie Sheikh drew the ambassador  aside, and together they muttered fuij  some moments, Abd er Rahman nodding his turbaned old head vigorously, as in emphatic agreement with  my Sheikh's suggestions. Then tha  Sheikh moved forwaid to where a massive silver ink-pot stood upon a writing-table, and raising the lid - of the inkpot, paused lo look about him around  the room. At length his eyes fell upon  Mr. Jones, who was somewhat sulkily  playing with his sword, and swearing  under" his breath, by Jove! his favorite, apparently, among the gods. ,, ,  With great politeness the Sheikh je-  questod Mr. Jones to nppioach him,  and to hold out .his'-right hand. This  the young gentleman from the University accordingly did. and into ther  center of his pink right palm the  Sheikh proceeded to splash a great  round blot of ink, which he scooped out  of the ink-pot with a sort of ivory egg-  spoon (a nail-cleaner, as I was afterwards informed), handed him for tho  purpose by one of the attendants.  His lnk-blottcd pink *palm ��� extended  before him, Mr. Jones followed tho  Sheikh to the large buy window, and  there halted. The Sheikh assumed a  demeanor of' great earnestness, and  passed his extended hands several  times to and fro before the young gentleman's face, commanding him at < the  same time to look fixedly into the little  fool of Jnk upon his right palm. Then  ���nsued whispered talk between tho  Sheikh and Mr.. Jones, of which I  inught only, occasional phrases here and  there. That Mr. Jones wn3 now as  rvax in the hands of the Sheikh was  ipparent to the most casual observer.  "Look welll Where goes he now?  Mark well the " r   ���  I caught no more. '  Suddenly the Sheikh bent forward  tnd wiped the ink from tho hand of  Mr. Jones.' Then he made some fur-'  lher movements with his hands before  (he young gentleman's face and turned  away. Mr. Jones shook his head,  Toughed, blinked once or twice, and  walked slowly to my side muttering,  (is though this singular incident of the  Ink-splash had 'not occurred at all;  "Bai JoveI- Do. they take us for a lot  of pickpockets, or what?"  "Gentlemen, this very regrettable 5n-  rident is one which I deeply deplore."  M was the Photographic Artist who ba-"  (fan to speak now, his manner suggesting a curious blend of extreme nervous haste and extreme deference.  "But as I am expected in the matter of  three other professional engagements  this morning, I fear that I must ask  vou to excuse me now. I���er���in fact,  ft is highly necessary���I would say  that I really must be going without  further delay.  And the Artist gathered up his photographic oddments as he spoke. But,  to hia confusion, it appeared that no  sort of attention was paid to the matter of his extremely polite remarks.

Meantime, Mi  Jones, an  ardent photographer  himself,  had picked up the broken  camera, and  was carefully examining il, with a view  jto determining the extent of its iujurieij'  I    supposed. .   Seeing    this,    the    very  embarrassed   Mr. Montgomery   How o lochia   side, nnd  seized   the  fractured    inJ  fllrumcnt quite jealously.

What's the idea in that sort 'of sunken  space under the back screw?"  "Oh, that is merely a flaw in���er���  But 1 will explain it to yon at my  ���tudio' with pleasure.

"Let   me   Bee   that,"   put   in   Shoikh  Abd   el  Majeed,  striding    up    to    Mr.  Montgomery.    "There  1  shall   find   my '  picture,  perhaps."  "Indeed, sir, I assure you Tthat lt ia  not possiblo for your picture to���,  cr-^���"  "You can't possibly see it, now you'v*  stupidly smashed the thing, you know?*,  skid Afr. Jones, speaking with feeling  for a follow photographer, no. doubt.  The Sheikh haid nothing, but snatched -'  the   camera   from    the   hands   of   th��'  Photographic Artist, who,"to my'aaton-^  ishment, turned nt onco and fled wlldlj;  toward  one  of  tho   doora.   ;��� "He  prob- ,  obly   thinka   now   that   he   has     fallen   ,  among  savage  cannibals,   at-' least," " I  thought,  and  walked  after 'Mr.   Montgomery with a view to reassuring him.'  Hearing a about behind me, I turned ia  time to ace the Sheikh slit open the ro-  cesa  below  the "camera with  the  point  of  his  dagger,   thus   exposing   his   Excellency's magnificent aigrette, or rather  the   Sultan's,  neatly  ensconced  in   cot��  ���ton-wool.,  '&idi    'U-J    ml.

I ventured    to  interpose here, for already two attendants had  dragged   the   barely  conscious  Mr. Montgomery to the side* of his Ex-  kellency's   cushions.      I   explained   that  we Britishers had a  prejudice in  favor  of  formal   trial  and   sentence  in   these  natters, and requested  that a footman  jelonging  to  the  house  might at once  ��e sent out for a police officer.  After some rather fierce discussion, in  ihe course of which his suspense  seemed to weigh very heavily upon Mr.  Montgomery, this was done, and the  Artist, with his wonderful camera, his  flowing, ��� but disarranged, necktie and  his other belongings, was removed from  our presence by a stalwart member 'of  the Metropolitan 'force. *   We learned in  the ceiling, and my friend   the   Sheikh .  was  busy  in  a  whispered  conversation I tn��  course of a week  that Mr.  Mont  with hia Excellency the ambassador. f ����_mel7 .wa3 ,one   of   the  most   expert  "Sir!" cried the Sheikh, suddenly  wheeling round upon the Photographic  Artist, "be not so hasty, I beg you.  The losa we all deplore is a great one,  but my lord, his Excellency, is not a  man of one jewel. Let us put it aside,  and, since you have the picture of his  Excellency, who ia a relation of mine,  I beg you will now take one of me,  without delay.    See, I stand!"  And my friend the Sheikh threw himself at once into a pose of really splendid defiance. Just so and not otherwise "might a Moorish Emperor have le-  ceived an ambassadorial petitioner  from the infidels in the bad old days of  that sainted butcher, Moulai Ismail, of  bloody but revered memory in Morocco.  To my surprise the artrstic value of  the picture did not seem to appeal to  Mr. -Montgomery. Indeed it seemed at  first he would not take the portrait;  ao he fussed, and nervously insisted  upon the value of his time, and the necessity for his immediate departure.  "You will take my portraitl" said the  Sheikh quietly, but with exceeding  masterfulness. And the Photographic  Artist proceeded forthwith to arrange  hia camera in position.'  "Thank youl" said he mechanically,  when the operation was completed.  "And now let me see the picture," de  manded the Sheikh. And I was aur-  prised at the ignorance he displayed, foi  I had once before had occasion to explain  to him that photographs require development. Mr. Montgomery naturally protested that there was aa yet no picture  to show. ������'���  "Natheleaa,  I   will   see  it,"  persistec:.  ���Iheikh Abd el Majeed, walking threateningly toward She camera.  "Oh, come, you know, but that's ah  >urd," put in Mr. Jones, advancing upu"  the. photographer's  side.     "You    can't.,  vou know, until it's developed."  "Do you refuse?"." demanded th  Sheikh m stentorian tones of the no\  hopelessly- confused Photographio Art  ist. ���'.���..'���.'���  "You see, my dear sir, it is impoe  sible to show you now, and���I' realh  must be going.

"Now get mc nry picture," said he, m  jewel thieves in Europe, an artist," indeed, and one for whom the police were  already anxiously looking in connection  with another and a more successful  robbery than the present one.  But I never quite got to the bottom  of, nrv Sheikh's experiment with " tho  ink-blot in the rosy hand of young  Mr. Jones. I gathered that it was tho  Moorish form of crystal-gazing, and tha  Sheikh said he had enabled Mt. Jones,  by hypnotism, to see the whole theft  in the ink-blot. But whatever the process, the Sheikh certainly managed the  matter very ably, ns we all agreed.

And the desire of all uullons shall come,  vllaggai, 11, 7. , ��^  The wants met by Cliristianily��arc  deeper than those provided"for by civilization. The new gospel whiclPis being preached���fust civilize and then  Christianize���is putting the tender before the locomotive.  Herbert Spencer has maintained with  great force in his treatise on education that the moral nature is the  fiist in time and importance to be cultivated. But the moial nature of a  man is bound up inseparably with his  religious nature. ��  All true morality has its basis in religion. Hence it ib that, the most permanent, persistent, far-reaching piin-  ciples and sentiments of man have,  sprung - from the cential core of his  .Worshipful being. If, then, wc would  begin fundamentally to train him aii^ht  we must lay hold (irmly and correctly  upon his devout tendencies; if wc  .would develop Iii ni in manward breadth  ��nd in Godward height wc must first  elarify his spiritual'virion.  Christianity alone of all the world's  religions has the elements of pcrfect-  ness, universality and adaptability in it.  Ncne other possesses the ' power of  fcssmilating and transforming into its  . own nature whatever may be found of  value either among the barbaric or existent civilized nations with*'which il  comes in contact. Very often, however, the friends of Christianity have  assumed a false position in maintaining that it teaches the opposite of all  that man ever desired or thought before itsr light illuminated his undcr-  Itt-nding or its grace renewed his heart.  On the contrary, as we look to Hivn  .who was "the desire of all nations," the  'distinctive power and glory of Christianity are clearly manifested - in this  Unique fact, that it, and it alone, meets  the wants of the spiritual nature ' of  mankind, uttered in all religions, and  reveals the  glorious    realities    which  they but dimly shadowed forth. "Whatever of righteousness 'Judaism held,  v.'hateYir of good the Greek philosophy  taught, whatever of beauty the Greek  mythology embodied, whatever of sublimity the Eastern mysticism dreamed,  whatever of majesty the Roman law  contained is taken up in Christianity  and set forth in all its glorious substantiality."  Christ Jesus-was not the simple outgrowth of His age, as many unfriendly  critics of the supernatural in His life  have tried so hard to prove. It would  be a mrracle far transcending all tha  miracles which the New Testament records if such a character were to blossom out of the thoughts, the ideas, the  tendencies or the deeds of the time m  which He lived. His own people "expected" .a more victorious Joshua, a  more magnificent Herod, a wider ruling Caesar, a wiser Moses, a holier  Abraham. -Their expectation was fulfilled, as many of our prayers arc answered, not in the manner desired or  looked for, but in the way Divine Providence wisely and truly ordains.  They could not sec that in the form  of this wayfaring man, manger bor,i  and Nazareth bred, there was One  more powerful than him of old by  whom the 'waters of Jordan were parted as he entered at the head of tlio  wandering tubes into the promised  land. Thoy could not see in Hun the  One who should hush the stormy  winds and calm the roaring seas, and  at last lead over the Jordan of dentil  in glorious triumph the believing, wan-  'dering tribes of earth, into the Canaan  of everlasting rest. They could not  see as He stood before Ilerod, clad in  the old purple robe���the mock insignia  of royalty���with not a single supporter,  that He was clothed with panoply li-  vine, and behind I lim and about [lim  mere the myriad legions of the skies.  They did not sec, as lie stood bare  and bleeding before Pikr.e's bar, that  when this representative of the wide-  ruling Caesar lifted from that lacerated back the insulting emblems of imperial rule, trying to melt their stony  hearts to pity, the government was upon His shoulders and of the increase of  His kingdom there should be no end.  They did not see-t'nai in Him were all  tha hidden treasures of wisdom and  knowledge, and lhat arr infinitely wiser  teacher and leader than Moses was  among them.   They did not grasp the.  J\ ' tne vast multitude in the theatre, witn  "thunders of 'applause, to their feet  when'it first fell upon lh"ir ears, "I ?m  a man, and"there is nothing pertaininti  to humanity which is- foreign to me,"  was, therefore, true only of Him in  Rh"oin'"lhe fulness ol" the Godhead  'dwclleth bodily."

'-"���/.  Labouchere and King Edward (as  Prince of Wales) were for years fast  friends. .'Apropos of thi3 friendship, Lah-  V.y was once asked what he called the  Prince when he dined at Marlborough  House. "Well," said the famous radical,  "when the soup comes on I address him  as 'Your Royal Highness.' The fish soft-  ��� ens the reserve and I get a little chuni-  ', micr and often as not call him 'Wales,'  while during the entrees and joints I get  quite 'familiar and ho becomes 'Eddie,'  while he'slaps mo on the'back'and dubs  mo 'Labby.".'  An Englishman was traveling not long  ago in a compaitment of a London train.  At one of the stations a German entered  the carriage and took -the seat opposite  the Englishman. When the train had  started, theHGcrman, seeing the other's  cigar, boldly" asked for one. 'Although  astonished at the request, the Englrsh-  man nevertheless pulled 'out his case and  handed it to the stranger. The German  lighted-the cigar, took^a few puffs, and,  beaming affably through his spectacles,  said: "I v'ould not haf droubled you, but,  I had a match in mine boggit, and I did  not know vat to do mit him."  In a mining town in the mountains oi  Virginia lived two litllo chaps aged eight  and "nine years, neighbors and good  'friends, who passed most of their leisuie  time together in boyiah sports, but, like  all healthy boys, they sometime"  "scrapped." On one of these occasion-  the younger one, who was built on the  lines of the proverbial man who could not  'stop a pig,in an alley, was being twitted  hy his companion on his how legs. ITo  etoqd it manfully for a while, but finally,  J-losing patience, 'he blurted out: "Well, 1  may be bow-leggod, but when the Lord  made you He made you as ugly as He  could and then hit you in the face."  At a Scottish town, the other day, o  Londoner on his way to a hotel addressed the porter who led the way:  ."Not a large place this?" ' "Na verra,  was the answer. "Has it a corporation?"  "A what, sir?" enquired the baggage-  bearer. "I mean, who rules it?" "Rule  it? Jist the provost." "Ah, the provost  Like our lord mayor? lias he got am  insi"Tiia?" remarked the cockney. In  signiat What d'ye mean?" asked the-  puzzled Scotsman. "Yes, insignia; that  'is to sav, has he a chain?" the polite  visitor hinted. Whereupon the almost  dumbfounded native gasped out: "A  chain, sir? The provost chained? Is a  na! He gangs loose; but dinna be  feared, he's quite harmless."  Dr. Daniel M. Stimson, the family physician and life-long friend of the laic-  poet, Richard Henry Stoddard, relates an  anecdote to the effect that the poet,  ���while endeavoring to procure an im  promptu luncheon for a number of  friends after Mrs. Stoddard and the servants had retired, found a box of sardines. His somewhat vigorous remarks,  inspired by a sardine-can's objections to  the "open sesame" of a dull jack-knife,  attracted the attention of Mrs. Stoddaul  on the floor above. "What are you do-  in��V she called down. "Opening a can  oAardincs." "With what?" "A dashed  old -j-ick-knife," curd the exasperated  poet.' "What did you think I was open-  inor it with?" "Well, dear," she said,  dryly. "I didn't exactly think you were  opening it with prayer I"  Salvatore Cortesi, in a very readable  article in the "Woild's Work" on King  Victor Emmanuel of Italy, says that alter the assassination of his father, Queen  Margherita was very anxious that King  : Humbert should he buried at the Superg.i  ! at Turin, where all the rest of the House  ! of Savoy lie, with the exception of the  ' great Victor Emmanuel.   Moreover, her  I Majesty did not wish to wound the sus-  .' cep'libilitics  of   the   papal   party   by   a  state funeral in Rome.  King Victor, pale  and tired, entered  Ihc room where  the  Queen  was,  exclaiming:  "Well,  that i=  arranged���my father will have a litting  burial in the Pantheon."   "Victor," cried  his mother, "1  see you want to break  my  heart.    You ofiend my  religion ns  well  as  my  affections."    "I  am  sorry,  mother," he said gently, and then added  sternly; "the religu n which is offended  at a martyr  being  buried  in  his  own  capital and lying beside his own father  needs radical changes."  A story is told of Labouchere at the  very beginning of his cditoiial career. A  friend came in one day, and, seeing a  quantify of books around, which had  been sent in for review, offered to bet  Labouchere that there was one book he  had not got in the office., Labouchere en-  quiied the name of the book, and his  friend promptly answered, "A Bible."  With a laugh, Lrbouclreie offered t'o  bet ten pounds that he had even that  book. Turning the conversation in another direction, In furtr. cly scut a note  out into the cleri.'s olliee, telling the  boy to go downstairs and ask the booksellers underneath for \he loan of a  Bible. Presently' he 'returned to the subject of the bet, and, calling his assistant  in, asked him whether'he had a Bible  in the olliee. The clerk produced the  book, which Labouchere handed over to  his friend, giving himself away, however, ns' he did so by saying sotto voce to  the clerk: "I hope to goodness you didn't  forget to cut the leaves!" Of course tha  English Bible does not require its leaves  to be cut.  'DtTERLY-JPAl...  To euro itching and  disfiguring skin diseases*  But  DR.
