Prof.     Tomlinson    Instructs     His  Pupils in all Sorts of Housewifely Duties.  -, All good citizens will rejoice to  learn that a new and efficacious  method of abolishing those parts    of  ' the streets, known as Hooligans, lias  been discovered and put into practical application by a French gentleman named M. Pierre Vigny.  ���' Some j-cars ago the idea occurred  to M. Vigny, who, it may bo mentioned, lias been' fencing master to  a . French crack cavalry regiment,  ithat it would be possible to discover a system by which .people could  guard themselves against tho cow-  'ardly methods of assault practised  by tlie blackguards of the streets,  ftf. Vigny accordingly purchased a  Istout walking-stick, and, armed with  -it, proceeded to study the methods  'of Hooligans in the slums of London  ' and-Livei pool.  When he acquired first-hand knowledge of their ways, he repaired to  Paris, where ho sought.wisdom from  the Thugs and Apaches,"ruffians who  ��� assualt r pedestrians with sand-bags  and lifc-prescrvors, and then, for the  purpose of finishing his education, he  spent some sonsidcrablc time  amongst the ruffians of Rome and  Naples, who are profieieift in the  use of the murderous stiletto, and  completed his curriculum in 'the  Bowery of New York, and the slums  of Chicago. ��� '   -  -  He, thus     became conversant- with-  every  device  of  the    street     ruffian,  and,  what is of more importance,  ho-  - discovered bow to -protect himself  effectively from every- weapon, with  tho exception of firearms, they ' use,  including loaded belts, sand-bags,  bludgeons, knives, and daggers, with  the   instrumentality  of  a  HTJMUL-K   WALKING-STICK I  For the purporo of .imparting this  orL he lias established a "School of  Self-Defence'' in a street near Oxford Street, London, which is largely  patronised   by  young  aristocrats,  ,- city men, actors, and others, whose  pursuits necessitate their, being out  late. Ladies also receive instruction  at,this unique school in large numbers, and M. Vigny maintains that  anyone who, has mastered ,thc sys-  1cm of self-defence with a walking-  stick or umbrella, which he has in-  'auguratcd, is a match for, at least,.,  hall* a dozen     street ruffians     armed  .with belts or knives. ,  I Tho, newly-wedded men who discover that the pastry made by their-  better halves" is " more'substantial  than digestible, and that their collars and culls lack lustre will be delighted to hear that a "School for  .Wives", exists at Chelsea, which is  presided over by Professor Tomlin-  son, who instructs his pupils in all  sorts /ot housewifely duties, from  clear starching to the higher flights  of domestic economy. Large numbers of married and single ladies attend this school for the purpose of  becoming proficient in various domestic arts, and lectures followed by  practical demonstrations are given  on every imaginable subject connected  with the household.  Chent and St. Petersburg boast of  Unique schools for, detectives and  policemen. Ghent's police force employs large numbers of dogs to pa--  trol the streets at night and these  animals are taught'to obey the com-  mnnd of any man in uniform and to  'follow any person, and if necessary  /ly at  him)   when  instructed   by    the  - gendarme.  RUSSIAN rOLICZLAIEN"  are taught everything that is .'ikel;'  to be useful to them in the course of  I heir duties at an academy at St.  Petersburg. Tho students are taught  the gentle arts of burgling and pock-  lit picking, and they are made proficient in the methods of all sorts  of criminals, as the authorities hold  1hat they can only become efficient  policemen through mastering the  devices of thieves. The more advanced pupils arc instructed in shadowing suspected persons, and imaginary crimes are committed, and  prizes given to those who solve  Vhem by deduction.  One of the most interesting schools  in London to visit is thut for acrobats and "strong" men at Kenning-  lon. 'There you will sec pupils in-  vtructcd in the art of throwing dou-  hle somersaults and weight lifting.  .Juggling is also embraced in the  curriculum, and the initial efforts of  would-be-jugglers to perform tricks  with eggs and plates are both interesting  and  amusing.  Very few are aware thai several  schools for barbers and three finishing academics for hairdressers exist  in London. "At. the hairdressers'  academies courses of instructions are  given by'competent professors in the  iiiricate* art of the coiffure, and elaborate styles of headdresses arc constructed on models selected for their  profession from historical pictures  and engravings. The West Knd  "Hairdressers' Academy, it may- be  incntioncd, has some six hundred  licholars, and twelve models are constantly employed.  Despite .the. vigilance of the police  quite a number . of schools for the  training of -young criminals exist,  unfortunately, in England. One of  these was'recently discovered in Le-  thnal Green, which was conducted by  nn alien of an unsavory but familiar  type.  THE MOST   FAMOUS   SCHOOL  for young pickpockets, however, suppressed in recent years, was the   one  kept by  the woman known  as  "The  MNDIHATHE  WAS LOOKING FOR  A  COMPLETE ,CURE FOR BLADDER TROUBLES IN DODD'S  KIDNEY PILLS.

I could get  no relief till I tried Dodd's Kidney  Pills  and they  cured mc."  This is the statement of James Atwell of this place, and all his neighbors know it to bo true. Speaking  further of his cure Mr. Atwell says:���  "For five months of the time the  pains in my bladder were very severe  and in passing my urine would Hurt  mc so as to almost cause tears to  come to my eyes.  "I used other pills and got no relief. I used a bandage and got no  relief. Dodd's Kidney Pills cured me  completely and permanently."  All bladder diseases are caused- by  disordered, kidneys.

Frederick  Leighton as model for -several of his  famous pictures. She instructed a  number-of boys'and girls in pocket,  picking, and lived (in, considerable  affluence from .the proceeds-of her  pupils' dishonesty, whom, it is ,only  fair to state,-she treated'with great  kindness, so far- as their physical  well-being was concerned, until she  was discovered and sentenced to a  term of ���imprisonment.  The most - extraordinary school,  however, that exists in the Metropolis is the Japanese School of  Self-Defence, where Ju-Jit-Su, or  "Weakness -against Strength," is  taught by Professor Vyenishi. Ju-  Jit-Su is-a system based on a profound knowledge of anatomy and  dynamics, and anyone who is proficient in this curious method can  overthrow an adversary who is three  times as strong. President Roosevelt is an. adept at Ju-Jit-Su, and  quite a large number of officers in  the British Army are practising this  system. - ' >._-...:  It is said that no strong man or  athlete has ever succeeded in defeating a Ju-Jit-Su player, and certainly none of the famous wrestlers * at  present before the public have ever  accepted the challenges of tho Japanese champions who are performing  in England.���Pearson's Weekly.  o - ���: ���_��� _   ��� *  MORE USEFUL.  At a certain school a 'boy was regularly absent during the hour in  which- Latin was taught, and Hie  teacher called upon the boy's father,  at whose instructions it had been  learnt the lad kept away. , The  teacher asked for an explanation,  and the father said, "It is all right.  During the Latin hour I am leaching  Jimmy something that he will find  far more useful than Latin in his  progress through life." The teacher  was interested, and asked what what  this subject, might be. The father  replied, "I am teaching my son how  lo  shave  without  a looking-glass."  A   MUTUAL  MISTAKE.  Two ladies stood on the doorstep of  a friend's house waiting for admission, and they became very impatient at the delay.  "It's very odd to be kept waiting  at Mrs.' Darley's," said one. "The  door is usually'opened so promptly."  "So it is.    I'm getting very tired."  "I wonder if there is absolutely no  one in the house?"  "Of course ' there ard people in.  We'll ring again."

A man who found the reason  says:  "Formerly I was a slave to coffee.  I was like a morphine fiend, could  not sleep at night; would roll and  toss in my bed and when I did get  to sleep was disturbed by dreams and  hobgoblins, would wake up -with  headaches and fed bad all day, so  nervous I could not attend to business.

Next to winning a victo \y, the chief  concern of a general or admiral uow-  a-days is how to spring the news on  the public in' the most' effective way.  HJowevcr, great and glorious the triumph it is not considered comolcto  unless its announcement is scr\cd up  in a spicy fashion through the newspapers.  To meet this taste oven the conquerors themsehes have departed  from tho stern official language which  had to do duty in the days of our  ancestors and gilded the plum of  victory with some suggestive phr-aso.  Who forgets .Lord Roberts' haupy  announcement of the. rapture' of  yronje at PaadebeigV Alitor notify-  inc tho achievement, Roberts added:  I hope Jler Rrajesty's Government  will consider this ovont .satisfactory  occurring as.it cl-oos on the nnnive'r-  s-nry of M/nJ-.ba."  "��� And ;t Was c.vcn whispered, though  nobody can say with truth, that our  oommander had somehow ai ranged  his tacties with a view to tho anniversary.  Another dramatic touch! of-the same  kind was that with which, Admiral  "Sampson * announced 'his destruction  of the . Spanish Fleet ofl Santiago  during tho war of 1898. He -too  was able to spring 'a birthday present'  ��".m,     ^merlca�� public, and wired-  I no Fleet under my command offers the nation, as a Fourth of July  present, the destruction of the whole  of Admiral Cervora's fleet.

METHUEN   DIDN'T   "REGRET"  his defeat at Mageisfonlein,  but conveyed it in Ioi-rc enough words:  "Highland Urigade attacked at  daybreak. Attack prcperly timed.  Attack failed."  Our victories dm ing the South African war, with the exception of  Lord Roberts' Pandobarg wire, wero  genorally reported in vcrv teise language.  The relief of Kimberley came lo u.s  os follows..  refuge  behind  ron     took  shipping."  Dowey's telegram, a- little later,  however, put a very different complexion on the event.  Still more startling is the fact that  Franco's most fearful defeat of history, Sedan, in which McMahon surrendered jWith 70,000 men, filtered  through first as a French victory. On  the day of tho battle the following  telegram i cached the newspapers from  Brussels: -  "A new encounter occurred yesterday at'Sedan. Tlio, French arc said  to ha\o captured thirty guns, and  Bazaine is said to be driving the  Prussians towards Sedan."  This was received with much satisfaction in Paris, unlit the next day  was published tho following, addros.s-  ed to tlie "Queen of Prussia, Berlin,"  mill signed "\Vilhelni.''<  "A capitulation whereby the' whole  army nt Sedan arc prisoners of war  has just been concluded. What a  loiirse of events ha\u assumed by  God's guidance."  Tho dofoats of the Greeks by Tur-  Koy in - 1897 were put in quaint  phraseology by the doafoated generals. Overwhelmed and driven back  at Fharsala tho general "announced  that    ho  merchant [feet on the glacier, Capt.

Nova,   found^  the Disco\ory  on  Jan    5 /irmly   imbedded in the ice.       lixplosives were  used to free her and ice sawing   was  tried,  with no result.     '1 hen the   relief ships tried butting the ice.  The  way of it was thus.  The ship,  ha'd to make way astern SOO or <100  yards.     Then  .she  would come up  at  full speed���which with  the Tcriyi...Nova is 8 knot"?���and butt at the ice.  The Discovery, il must be remembered, had been no less than seventeen miles from the open sea, so'that  there was a big mass of .solid ice to  get  through  before  reaching  her.  The results of tho butting were  various with the Tcit.t, No*a. Sometimes     half     a  ship's    length   would  break away, another times not three I quiring them for food aejiJs" wore not  yards. > by any means abundant.

Scott  returned  to   the  ship, after an absence of eighty days,.  he found work going on',' the crew at^  tempting  to  free  the  ship  from     ice  by sawing.    She  was seventeen miles  from open water and in ice eight feet  thick.    The best" cut made was forty  feet  in four hours;  and  as  soon     as  the-cuts were made.they wore frozen'  again,  so that  at" last the' work had  to be abandoned as useless.  -Meantime,   another  evueriition     had  set out under Lieut.  Rends  and Mr   -  Biernaclu.    They wished'to ascertain  the-extent-'of tho ice sheet and to see  if any land wore in sight.     The meteorological conditions prevailing   over  the ice sheet     were to  be ascertained  and magnetic observations taken at a  place  ^FREE FROM ROCK MASSES..     \  Their    o'loifs     were    crowned   with  gi-eat success.,   1 hey, su/ieied .se.croly  from frostbit c and from a shortage of, ,  food,    which'     eventually    compelled''  them to turn back. ' '  It was necessary "to carry light  loads, but their appetites incicased,  end in the end they subercd Irom  hunger to such an extent that they  could think of moth ing else. Ono ol  the men describes his longing for a ,  glass of beer. They dreamed horrible  nightmares of food being tantali/.ingly  near, of .splendid banquets ready for  the eating.  Observations were taken which will  be found most valuable in .determining the .-csition of the south uu\g- '  netic polo, and there will be increasingly less risk of sailors 'getting out  of their course owing to some inaccuracy in their compapser.-. The ice  plain was found to bo afloat, no land  was to bo seen and the party were at  length forced to return on account of  the need for procuring rood In all  they travelled 155 miles, hr.dmg a  perfectly level surlaee, without undulations of my kind.  Of tho animal lire in the Antarctic  not much mlormation is given The  penguin, the petrol and the' seal seem  to constitute  tho fauna  of the ice.

A curious international work is  now beginning which Is to last  twelve yours. Jt is the work of  watching the earthquakes of the  world. The object is to learn .something about earthquakes that may  lead to a discovery of their causes.  The hope is that .something may  develop which will enable scientists  to warn persons in throulcned districts in time so that they may escape, just as is done now in tho case  of storms.  This international hunt for the  earthquake was organized in Stras-  biirg, (iornuiny, during the last session of the International Seismic  Congress. All the nations that  joined in the work then have agreed  lo'.'uso all available 'Government departments to gather statistics about  earthquakes, and to forward them  to tho central ��� bureau in Strasburg.  Rules and regulations have been laid  down for. observation, and tho members know just what facts should be  gathered.; Whatever money. can be  raised will bo used for the establishment of observatories and experiment stations in lands that arc' sufferers from these disturbaricosy The  reports which arc sent in to the central, station will be edited; and pub-  li^ed periodically., y.y,yy;  "French, with horso aitillery, cavalry, aed mounted infantry, reached  Kimberley this  afternoon."  Ladysm.il h's relief was couched in  similarly brief terms:  "Dundonald, with Natal Carbineers, and composite regiment, entered  Ladysmith last night."  Tho briefest war announcement in  history is tlie one-word pun of Sir  Chnrles Napier, after the capture or  Scinde in 1S4."J. '"I'eecavi" R ran,  Ihe Latin for "I Jvivo sinned"  (Scinde).  The fall of Khartoum came to us iu  yory row words. For weeks the public had been awaiting news of Gordon's relic-r, quite believing that it  would be accomplished. One morning  a tologr.am arrived:  "Khartoum foil on the 26th". The  fate of General Gordon is unknown."

The Governor of the Philippines actually proclaimed" this in the following  words, which  on being posted up   in  Madrid'wore. hailed with cheers:  "Our fleet engaged,enemy in  brilliant-,  combat.       They obliged  enemy  operation was helped by four men at  the wheel "rolling the ship as she  came on. Then the poor little Morning tried, but as the Discovery's men  say, "she cannot butt a match box."  But at last only a quarter of a  mile was left, and by sheer determination the, caiplain got through.  THE DISCOVERY'S  MEN,  who were watching from tho hill, declare that her last shot was a     fine  sight.     She  broke   the   ice   like     paper.  Of the work done during tlie year,  tho reports have a good deal to say.  For the first few weeks tho crew  caught enough Iish to supply them,  but os the winter began to close in  rapidly they occupied themselves with  catching seals nnd gulls for winter  food.  When April showed no chance of  bi caking up the ice, preparations  were made lo ensure a certain  amount of comfort during the long  months lo come. The slpp was dismantled, and the .serious work of  exploring  beean.  The longest tour was that undertaken by Capt. Scott, who led his  parly to Ihe southernmost land yol  touched. They had the most severe  woather to contend with, almost lost  several lives by men slopping ovor  a precipice into soft snow, and l.nnl-  ly were brought to a standstill by ay-  terrible, blizzard. The driving snow  which fell cut into, the flesh ���.-������whore  it touched, it. When the men ceased  walking the contraction of the skin  caused it to ���split-.nnd. gave severe  pain.- ������  They had taken, light folding tents  of silk, six feet in diameter, in and  out of which they crawled by ''means  oT a hole, which, when they were in,  was kept y closed.

At  arctic  fur  kind.

As he possesses  an  unusually fierce sot of teeth,   it  is  supposed   that   the  se.a  leopard  is    in'  the habit or acting the eannibnl    toward his smaller biethren.  Tho sl'iio. gulls are Ihe scavengers  or Lho frigid regions. They are 'not  limid and will come up in numbers  nn soon as a seal h-,s been killed and  straightway begin feeding on the car-'  cass.  The giant petrel .shares the distinction. Ho feeds till he Is loo gorged  to fly and then runs in a peculiar  way when chased, spreading his wings  as sails. GTf the chasing lasts long  enough his digestion comes to Ins  rescue and lie suddenly raises him.self  and flics off.  The penguins .seem to have p'rovid-  ed the explorers with a certain'  amount of amusement. They used to  prod tho emperor penguin'(a great  fellow, standing three feet nnd weighing sixty'or seventy pounds) '������'- with  the end y of a ski stick, when lie  would give y it tremendous smacks  which made the ihand tingle, at the  same time emitting curious guttural  cries: ��� '.'y.

A gieat mistake, or rather oversight, on the part of our merchants  and-also possibly on the part of the  transportation company,' is the  shortage of supplies when the  .working'season opens.'  - - At present there is no powder to  be-had, although we understand  that' a large quantity is at Caribou,  ready for shipment here.-,. Such  commodities as this should "receive  practically- the same attention as  perishables and be brought iu at  the first oppoi tunity."  Each year we notice that the  camp is short iu almost everything  when it is leally most needed, and  by the time supplies really do arrive, the working season is practically over. " ,  We think that material  suclTas  "powder, mining tools,   etc., should  be ordered in the fall- and  brought  in befoie the close of navigation.  111 the whole of Dominion Creek  J. M. Ruffner has purchased, for  the Pine Cieek Power' Co., the  Roeco claims, adjoining Steven-  dyke, and is having them included  in the Mnvey now being made.    '  Report says that big returns hA\e  been obtained from winter dumps  011 Gold Run.  Thtdiedge is now woikiu^ on  bediock, and the result of the  liist clean-up is anxiously awaited.  The diedge itsell is woikiug to  perfection, and 'the tremendous  amount of gravel excavated is a  cause of" much woudei and comment to all visilois.-  A Good Move^  Mining: Notes.  Fritz Miller is".doing well and  linking money. He has a large  gc- is1; of men at work on his claimi*.  Joe Rose & Larseu are now  opening up a "very rich piece of  ground behind Nugget Point, adjoining the old Sherry claim. We  anticipate a big clean-up for these  enterprising gentlemen.  Doc.   Mitchell,   with   his  usual  enterprise and giit, is now developing  his  leases  on Atliu too .River.  Last year some fair prospeets were  obtained   from   surface   pannings,  and while the Doctor  does  not expect  a  bonanza,   it  is  more  than  likely that there is good low-grade  gravel  that  will pay well by being  worked   with  modem  niachinerj-.  To Doc, Mitchell and his associates,  who are endeavoring to open up a  new  stretch  of country,  we  wish  ���*verv success.  A new road is to. be constructed  from. Discovery to Spiuce' Creek,  which, when completed, will take  in the heart of the mining district.  Such a road will'undoubtedly be of  gieat service- to all operating on  Spruce, and gieatly facilitate the  getting in of supplies. Tlie load  will, outside of the Discovery road,  be the most travelled" oil in the  whole camp.  * We are told it is going- to be"eon-  structed ���to conuecMvith'the budge'  below Discovery, but think it likely  that it may go'via- the Stevendyke  flats, a much better and- more'use-  ful way, as by. that route the climb  up the benches will be unnecessary.  This route would, however, necessitate the constiuctibn of anothei  biidge, but, on the other hand,  would cost- less for road construction, besides going thiough what  will soon be a very active mining  center.  05  o  And All' Kinds of jewellery Manufactured on the Premises.  1 0&~   Why send oiu when you can get goods as cheap here?

The  body of a poor native servant, the  only victim  of   the  exploding'   shell,  sleeping girl,  and he thought of   her -was  quietly  removed   without   -com-  CHAPTER XV.  "Wc are going to Lucknow, Mr.  "Randal," Ada said; "where docs it  Ho?"  * He did not know; Ifeclamporc was  not in the plan she had given him.  His guide then told him that she  was not sure of the locality herself,  but was certain that it was consid-  s-crably  north  of  Bcclampore.  This information was most depressing, especially when a sudden-f wingr-^  reminded Philip of his recent wound.  He looked with dismay nt his   corn-  '- panton's slender form, conspicuous in  tho   white  boy's  dress,   and  tried / to  calculate the distauce from. Lucknow  by the time it had taken tho bearers  to convey him  lit  his    palanquin     to  Bcclampore: ,      Alas' I   these     bearers  besides     being   swift     and   practiced  runners, knew  the  way and  were not  obliged -to hide themselves.     Tho ad-  ��� venture was a desperate one.  ' 'We must make , the best of , the  darkness,'' Ada-said, tranquilly at  this juncture. "It will\be well * to  Ho,quiet during the day. v You have  '. been very good and given me no  trouble /with 'questions and hesitations.'" " -   -  "1 am at your service," he replied,  ; simply;  "I know that you would not  , have  left your  refuge but  for    good  reason."     , .    '  '.'Good   reason     indeed,"   she said.  , "You   have  hoard "Gossamjce     Bhose  spsak of tho tyrannical moulvie who  anused  the Hindoo  temple  to  be denied:     -. This   man  has  sworn     that  thero shall be no  more English,  and  for   that reason   Gossamjce   was     so  anxious lo pass us both off as Hindoos.      Wilh  me  he  succeeded  fairly  well.      I was  in India until     eleven  years' old.      Hindostanee  is  my sec-  and language.      I knowcmuch of native     ways,   besides,   women, do  not  attract   much ^attention,    theii- lives-  are  passed  in  such   seclusion.      But  you arrived in English uniform,   and  ,  wounded,   ..and'   this   somehow    got  wind.      Gossamjce suspects that   one  of the servants turned traitor. These  people    arc   always    intriguing,  and  .   some friendly traitor warned   Gossa-  "mjee  of the moulvie's    plan,     which*  was ' to   search    his house���probably  this  very night.      He told Ituksbhai  also   that he  would  defend  us  to  the  death.      Poor Ituksbhai herself    pro-  . posed    our    flight; she had-the locks  oiled, and gave me a master key and  a  suit  of Chunia's  clothes,   and  furnished   mc    with     food  and  a little  money.      Dear   Ituksbhai,   she   is     a  him, so that he might be unable to  furnish any clue ..in case of pursuit.  There arc some very fierce fanatics  at Beclainpore who think English  blood the most dainty offering for  their gods. 'Oh, Mr. Randal, how  beautiful it Is to be free. Yours is  Ihe first English voice I have heard  uiiice���for three months," she said,  her breath catching at' the memory  of the last English voice she had  heard; "and I have not had so much  11.3~u.ir English Bible to read, and  have only spoken English when  teaching Rajmahli, and sometimes  her father and her brother."  "Poor' child!" Philip replied,  touched at the thought of her desolation, "I wish I were ten men' for  your sake."  The dawn was breaking now, not  tho sudden splendor of the- tropics,  but a much less gradual dawn than  we know in these latitudes. The air  grew sharp, the darkness seemed  deeper, and ,then-the clouds cleared  ol*",*- the cast glimmered grayly ancf  turned, to' white nnd gold, tho great  sun leapt up. from ythe, horizon into  a sky of deep glowing orange; the  warm autumn day was near.       -  Ada's spirits had been rising with  ���the sense of freedom, and tho stimulus of ' action/- tho terrible sorrow  and suspense-of the last few months  was succeeded by a natural reaction  She could nave sung in the lightness  of her heart.  "How beautiful the world is I"  she exclaimed, as she watched tho  glory of the sunrise with tears in  her eyes, "and how beautiful it is  only 'just to be 'alive.' I am sure  that we shall get through the lines,  Mr. Randal. I think, that God  means to deal more gently now���I  have suffered so much, and you have  suffered, too. And how shall I ever  be able to thank yon ?"  ."If I can help you I shall need no  o'ther thanks," he replied; "but .it  strikes me that if I get into ." Luck-  now alive I shall owe it to you."-  They went into a grove of mangoes  for concealment rather than shade,  to rest awhile, and eat some of the  food Ada had brought with her;  and a-more paradisaic breakfast perhaps had never been taken. Tho  world lying before them in the beauty of the morning was, so fresh, so  young, and so bright; lthe experience  was so  new and  so  romantic.  Philip scarcely knew Ada in her  fresh disguise; the merry Hindoo lad  with  tho  sparkling  oyes  differed    as  courage and patience, her utter deso  lation and dependence upon him.  They had'decided to sleep by turns  in the day, and travel again at  night; but Ada, who had taken no  exorcise for many.rnonths, was so exhausted that 'the 'day. wore, on and  nearly away while she slept, and  Philip could only keep himself awake  by pacing to and fro, to the discomfort   of  his   wounded  log.      But     at  last  tho sleep  faded -from her  ���facc,  good actor, and Lhopc that she will   ^u,c.h f^m *the dignified,  deep-voiced  be  able  to  persuade  Gossamjoo  that  she knows nothing of our disappearance. -   Sho had   to   take  old     Tom  Into her confidence. -- Toru dare not  betray      her     mistress.       Gossamjee  Would certainly beat her for her part  In    it.        And   for   such a breach of  hospitality ho   would   beat Ituksbhai  eevercly.      Dear   Gossamjce,   I     wish  J might  have  bid  him good-by    and  thanked him.      He   is such   a noble-  minded  man.      Even  Ituksbhai gloves  him, though he is her husband.   ITow  I   shall   miss    them all!      You     did  not see Rajmahli, of course ? But  you may have heard a girl's voice  (singing hymns. It was Kajmahli.  She is sixteen, and a widow. I  taught her many things, and we  studied Sanscrit together. And little  Sata, a child of six. Poor, baby! It  Is bad enough to be' a woman in any  case, but to be a Hindoo woman;  there is nothing more terrible, except to be a Mohammedan woman."  . "They are used to it," ho replied,  his mind busy with more personal  , mntters.  "And I am used to being a woman,"- she returned, with a scornful  emile, "but I find the more I am  used to il the loss I like it."  "Vou surely would not wish to be  a man ?" Philip remonstrated.  Perhaps salmon, mackerel, and such  lucky fish as are not skinned alive,  consider that discipline excellent for  eels, who, liko Mohammedan women,  arc used to it.  "At nil events," she returned, "I  must look as much liko a boy as I  cun till this little excursion is at an  end. My namo is Carcndra Lai,  you nre Basscnjco Lai, my brother,  and we arc returning from some pilgrimage to Lucknow, where our parents live. An., impediment in your  speech ���. obliges .mo to be spokesman  on nil occasions. "t���.  The moon set and clouds arose,  gradually blotting out the stars.  They travelled along in the -darkness,  listening to the cries of wild beasf^s  from'tho ���jungle they wero approaching, and talking but little; Philip rc-  fretting that ho had left Gossamjec's'  bspital roof without a word of  thanks or farewell, and speculating  on the trouble that might befall tho  honest merchant on their account. It  was .well that Ada had explained  nothing beforehand, as in that caso  he would have felt himself bound to  tell his good host of his intended  'flitting.  "Gossamjce will surely think tne  ungrateful," he said.  "No," his: companion replied; "he  will think that we found a favorable  opportunity for flight and will be  glad ti at we did it before getting  him into trouble.

Indian lady telling him her sad  story, as the latter contrasted with  the light-hearted girl in the ballroom. His spirits- rose with the  glory of the fresh morning,, and. the  infection of Ada's, but ho could not  forgot the extreme peril of their position and his own heavy responsibility, and ate tho chupatlics and fruit  he found in his bundle with an undercurrent of serious thought.  "Brother Bassamjee," "Ada said  hurriedly, after a time, "I wonder in  which  direction Lucknow lies."  Then it struck Philip that, having  walked for so many hours, thoy  ought by this time to bo within  hearing of the siege guns. Ho looked  over the prospect before, him, a rich  plain dotted with villages among  corn-fields, groves, and paddy fields,  with the eternal palm springing 'here  and there; he could see no sign of a  large city, or large river. Beelam-  pore was left far behind out of sight.  Ho had no idea where he was.  "Wo shall soon find the road," he  said in a reassuring voice.' "Only  keep up your heart, Miss Maynard."  Their frugal meal finished, and  their feet washed in a stream, tho  travellers went refreshed upon their  way toward a village, where Ada's  inquiries procured-the disquieting information that they had been diligently walking away from Lucknow  till night, and must now retrace their  steps, though they were not obliged  to  pass  Beclainpore again.  The sun waxed warmer as they  walked, and both began to flag,  Philip even limping, ns tho effort  told upon his wounded  log.  "It would have been nothing without  an  adventure,"  Ada  commented  joyously;   "you didn't    suppose      we  were going to  walk across  to Luck-  no w ns , one  walks    across  the fields  to  church  at home,  Mr.     Randal ?"  And. he certainly did not.  ���They    had now reached  a    ravine  formed by a cascade dashing from a  height;   the  steep  sides  were    partly  clothed  with  wood,  and  as  it    was  evident  that' both    were tired    out,  they .rested in this cool andplcasant  retreat till the y, sun's    worst    forco  should    be   .expended.      Here Philip  prepared a couch with leaves'and undergrowth,  but before he had   made  much    way   with    it Ada,  who  had  thrown horsclf at the foor of a tree  and    began  to     discuss   ��� their plans,  suddenly     became    silent,  her    head  drooping on nor.   breast.      She    had  fallen asleep, dead  beat.     She scarcely stirred when ho lifted her gently  from   the  earth   and placed  her     on  tho  greonwood couch,  himself sitting  near and fanning the insects off with  a    green    bough.     He  sat thus  for  many hours, battling with tho drowsiness that    threatened  to overcome  him,   and     pondering their situation  'sho sighed, stirred, and woke, springing to her feet when her eyes opened  upon Philip's haggard face, and reproaching him for letting her sleep  on���for they did not think it safe to  sleep without' a watch, a temple  above the cascade giving evidence of  human habitation near.  Then rhilip took her place for an  hour, and sho watched and fanned in  turn, her heart in turn melted with  pity when she looked upon the bronzed tired face' und tho strong limbs  relaxed in tho helplessness, of sleep.  If wild beasts cease to harm each  other, and unite to face a common  danger, how much more binding is  tho tic, of endurance and peril when  shared ' by human beings ? And  these had for each other the subtle,  charms of youth and sex, together  with diversity of character and  beauty; they wore alone together, in  tho'' wide world, surrounded by rruel  and treacherous enemies, > at tho  mercy of elemental forces, ho't ntJons,  chill nights, beasts of prey and -venomous reptiles, malaria, hunger/ and  the pestilence that slnys and wastes  at that season, in those climates.  Each felt something of the tremendous forces drawing them t-.g-'thcr.  but their youth and the exigencies of  tho moment hindered' them from seeing how deep and subtle ihoso fcices  wore.  Another night's walking, they hoped, would bring them'to the rebel  lines; but it was not so. What with  sickness and other mischances, it  was.days later "when two young English-speaking Hindoos were suffered  to pass the" English outposts in the  evening, , and brought guarded into  the entrenchments. '  - Foot-sore and weary, thin and haggard, their white clothing stained  and-torn,' they .were led before Euro-.  poans almost_as tattered, soiled and  wasted as ~ themselves; when the  younger-lad, who was half supported  by the elder, suddenly uttered a cry  and ran toward a tall man.clad in a  ragged, dirty flannel shirt, shabby  trousers arid slippers, but accoutred  as a private soldier,-and wearing an  officer's sword.       _    ' r  ��� "Arthur, don't. you know me?"  sobbed the boy, throwing himself upon  the astonished  officer.  "Sho escaped from Jollypore' in  disguise," the other fugitive explained. ' "You may bo-suro of your  sister by this token,' Captain Maynard," ho added, producing a large  ruby from his clothing. "Miss Maynard dropped this while dancing with  me, Philip Randal, of the 190th,  last winter, and I took it in charge  for her until now."  Then ensued a scene in which recognition, doubt, fear and hope, sorrow and joy, were tumultuously mingled, one of many similar scenes enacted in Lucknow that year, when  the supposed dead suddenly reappeared after long wanderings, and  those reputed living were as suddenly discovered to have, been long dead;  when reunited friends met with terror, framing questions their lips almost refused to utter, and their ears  dreaded  to hear-answered.  "Is father alive ? And mother ?���  Where is your wife ? Algernon was  killed and Ethel and all the children  ���None were'saved, civilians or soldiers���My children are gone���My wife  still lives���Her baby is a month  old���There is still food in tho garrison���Wo havo lost all wo possessed���\  We left -cantonments in the clothes  wc stood in���You arc ill���I am starved���Ah, poor child, and worn out���  And I-Tavelock is ill���Sir Colin is  coming���A little patience���Thank  God how sad���How sweet���" and  such like mingled questions and answers amid tears and smiles, and  ejaculations of sorrow and wonder,  to tho crashing of the grim siege-  symphony over-head.  Tho fugitives separated without  farewell; Ada was taken to her brother's wife, and Philip, with a keen  pang at a parting ho felt to bo final,  at least as far as tho close and  pleasant companionship in tho last  days of suffering and danger was  concerned, went lo tho quarters assigned to his regiment, where another equally ghastly but loss emotional scene of recognition, inquiry,  sad response, arid half sorrowful welcome -occurred,, in the midst of which  the diabolical war music rose in; a  deafening fortissimo;: the wall of the  temporary mess room:crashed in, admitting a heavy exploding body,  men fell In various directions;like so  many ninepins, the.:'sound of smashing crockery and shattering furniture 'was mingled with -igroans, and  followed by silenco and darknoss.  Philip, stunned by tho .noise, and  blinded by the", thick "dust-cloud, won-  dorod that ho was still alive, and  supposed himself the only .survivor of  the explosion; when the cloud began  to dissipate itself, a light was,struck  and a voice quietly -remarked.:  "Their practice is improving.' Tho  last only ploughed the compound a  bit." .  "What I hate is their confounded  stink-pots," said another voice, and  tho wholo assombly, tho ofllcers being then at dinner, was soon on its  feet, and making use of such furniture as was not smashed, adapting  broken things and continuing the repast,   afljlfar  an  circumstances    jier-  ment a few minutes later  Then Philip heard of * the - terrific  loss on September 23th, and during  tho/following week, when amputated  limbs lay in heaps in the hospital,  of the continued fury of' the siege  apparently undiminished numbers of:  tho enemy, who had rolled back fo'r  a short distance round-the original  entrenched position as the sea would  roll back from cliffs rising o\st of the  water, but who invested the reinforced garrison ,as closely as ever.  Outrairi had not yet-heard of Sir  Colin' Campbell's approach, ' and  thanks to Lawrence's providence  there wore still provisions for a  month. An English paper,? smuggled  in by a servant, proclaimed the interest and sympathy of England, and  the starting of - large bodies of  troops overland. -  Two" or three days in hospital,  where a round shot killed a man  sitting on his bed, and several of  duty of most active description, followed, and Philip saw . and heard  nothing of��� tho comrade of his late  adventures. Ho contrived to send  out a note for Jessie, concealed in a  quill, "saying that ho was alive and  well," and then one evening when lie  had an, hour to spare, he made his  way, to the Maynnrds' quarters, tolling ' himself that, littlo as conventionalities could be observed by pco-  plo whose scanty leisure was spont in  dodging" round shots and musket  balls, , it was absolutely incumbent  on him to ask how.' Miss Mnynard  fared after her adventurous journey.  Ifc found .a "quiet circle of 1-idios- in  shabby' clothes, sitting in a veranda  to breathe a little ,air in tho com-  ���parativo lull of tho iron tempest,  which usually occurred after .sunset.  Faded, haggard, and languid these  ladies wero; one wore a bit of crape,  at her neck, the nearest approach to  widow's weeds that she "could procure; ono was hushing a young fretful baby. This, lady received him  very cordially, and thanked him^ for  his caro of her- sister-in-law, while  Captain Maynard took the young  child and' looked at it with a wistful   tenderness.  -"This littlo chap began life boldly',", ho observed, petting the tiniest  of  arms. ,'  "He" ought to grow- into 'a distinguished-soldier," Philip replied glancing with a sort of awed pity at the  frail creature, who had chosen such  a perilous time for his first entrance  upon tho, world's stage, and doubting  if he would grow into anything. >  - Then ho-heard the .low clear voice  which had of���.��� late become so familiar, though not less thrilling to  him, and almost .feared >to. look up  to the face ho had seen in such varied aspects when Ada came on to"  tliG.veranda. ,   . . ^  ��� "I am so "glad to see you," she  said. "I was afraid you would not  have time to come. * You were in  hospital; I was so sorry. I hear you  havo been ori duty, I hope not too  soon."* ,  The young widow's eyes clouded  when she saw Philip rise from the  block of wood ho was sitting on to  shake, his former comrade's hand;  sho had heard the 'story of their  wandering with! a sort of tender envy  and the expression Ada's appearance  brought to Philip's face gave him a  momentary resemblance to her own  soldier slain during the siege. It  happened that Philip was clad in a  shabby, stained uniform that she  recognized too well; sho had refused  lo soil it, but placed it at tho disposal of any officer who might- need  it.  Ada had now recovered her natural  hue, and though unsuitably clad in  a rich colored silk gown given * her  by a lady who lived in the Residency, and therefore had all her  wardrobe with her when tho flight  thither took place, sho made a graceful and feminine figure in the dim  light. Her dark hair was coiled  about her head liko that of a Greek  statue, her eyes were bright with  pleasant welcome; she carried a  sleeping child in her arms, a wasted,  ailing creature, yet no light burden,  being  at  least  three years  old.  "Ada," her" sister-in-law said,  "can't, you put Willie to bed now V  He has been in your arms the whole  long day.     He will wear you out."  "The moment I lay him down he  cries," sho replied, gathering him  closer in her arms; "he is so good,  he lets me work and wash the china  and do all sorts of things I"  Philip wondered what "all sorts of  things" might mean; without asking  he took the child from her. and  quickly hushed the feeble moan it  made on being moved;, then he learnt  that its mother was ', too. weak to  tend it, and trusted it entirely to  Ada..-.   ,���:'-- ..-."���'.   , y "'...,, -  Just ,then a slight sibilant noise,  followed by a crack, was heard, and  a small object bounded from the  chair on which Miss Maynard -was  sitting and struck her on the side.  "Spent, fortunately," she said,  with a slight start, while a small  leaden ball rolled harmlessly to tho  ground, whence Philip took it as a  souvenir.  "The chair is none tho worse,"  Captain Maynard said, tranquilly  examining it; "it was evidently a  chance shot."  Philip, whoso low seat was ono of  those woodon blocks fired from mortars at a high elevation into the  garrison,1 keenly realized tho brief  and precarious tenure on.which they  all held "their lives; was it worth  while to think of the future in the  near faco of death ? Why not snatch  a little joy from these fleeting moments of peril ?     Therefore ho looked  1       ��� ���- J  young   widow  watched  them  with  a  sorrowful  sympathy,  and "enjoyed    a  brief hour of Paradise.

Tho child was still in her arms; -sho  begged a little milk for it, and  I'hilip wits happy and proud to bo  able  to furnish  some.  A'few days later,     when ,tho    sick  and wounded and women and   ,children were convoyed  to Allah 11 bad,    ho  was one    of    their escort, and    thus  saw her frequently during  tlio    fortnight's     slow   and    difficult     march,  which was    necessarily   one of great  hardship.

"What can it matter?" he said to  himself iu the march back to the Al-  umbagh, "1 shall never sec hor again  whether I go 'through the campaign  or  not."  And when he reached the camp and  found several home letters, ho almost trembled at the prospect of  opening them.

Ho  learned  that by sending a dollar to a    Yankee he could got a cure for drunkenness, and   he did.     It was to "Take  the pledge and  keep   it."      Then    ho  sent fifty stamps to  find out how to  raise  turnips  successfully.   He   found  out :   "Take hold    of   (ho    top and  pull."

When   the answer came  it read,   "Sit down in    a  pan   of   dough."      It    was  a     little  rough',  but ho   was     a patient man,  and    thought ho Would yet succeed.

During the past few seasons thousands  nnd thousands of acres of undrained  hillside land have been a source 'of  untold loss-to - their owners.

In a few years this well-drained  land will bo greatly improved by the  accumulation of humus within the  sin faco soil; by tho circulation of air  among tho soil particles and^ by tho  action of tho soil bacteria, which  now for the first time find within its  depths a 'suitable and congenial  home. On hillsides not fully  drained the surface soil permeable  by wnler 'is very thin, and frequently underlaid by a stiff and almost  impervious vclay. Tho result is lhat  when .ben ting rains fall they carry  moro 'oV, loss of'this surface soil into  tho valleys, bolow. *:<r,  This, action/, annually removes - a  considerable portion of the most fertile soil/and is one of tho most potent) factors in keeping these rolling  lands less productive than they  would be under more rational management.  SHEEP NOTES.  adds      to  their  EFFECTS  OF DRAINAGE,  v  In many sections of the country,  , Fays Prof. II. W. Stevenson of the  fowa Agricultural college, sonous  losses lrequently occur owing to the  heaving off-grass and cereal crops.  Proper drainage ol tho soil is perhaps tho most effective remedy for  this difficulty. When water freezes  it expands about one-eighth in volume. Therefore when a saturated  soil freezes, the surface is laised and  the roots of the plants are torn  from their places of growth. Shallow rooted plants are thus left on  top of tho ground, after the surface  has thawed and settled into" position.  It is not an uncommon occuricnce  after n scries of freezes and thaws in.  the latter, part of the winter or early  spring to find the roots of clover,  wheat and some other crops partially or wholly exposed. The pcrcen-,  tage of plants thus destroyed in  many fields in a single winter is so,  great that the farmer is compelled  to reseed the land.  V?oil which has been drained and is  free from surplus water is well supplied with interspaces filled with air.  Therefore, when the , soil moisture  freezes abundant room is afforded for  expansion and thus the roots are  protected in largest measure from  the injurious results which it has  been shown follow the expansion and  contraction of the surface of the  soil.  Comparatively few owners of rolling farms appreciate how great arc  the actual losses in many years on  rolling land which-is not adequately  drained. Many owners believe that  land of this class would not be benefited by under drainage" owing to  the fact that they' are rolling and  therefore adequately drained by .the  means which nature provided. The  number of those who hold this view  "regarding the. draining of rolling  land is so large that the subject   is  Docking   sheep  cleanliness.  - Breeding too  much for wool  tends  to weaken  the constitution.  The quality of mutton is not altogether in the breed, but to considerable extent 'in  the feed.  To secure tho best returns for  feeding, make the lots of fat sheep  as uniformly good as possible.  The more sheep you can keep and  keep right, the less per sheep, will  the cost  of keeping be  The principal of imitation is one  that should be cultivated, provided,  of course, we imitate that which is  best.  Regular feeding, good hay and  waim shelter, , will save grain in  feeding sheep  in a good condition.  Under average conditions the manure from v sheep will pay for* the labor of caring for them. *  There aio three essentials for a  successful foot-rot medicine; it must  be slightly caustic, in liquid "form,  and cheap enough to use freely.  In determining what wool costs,  the market price of what the sheep  "consume should^ be taken into_ account.  For scours in sheep, take of common mullion one handful of the  leaves, steep strongly and give one  pint of tho tea. Repeat if not cured.  The growth of the unborn lamb  is intimately interwoven with the  condition of the mother.  Never allow a piece of land to lie  idle because it'is rough. Stock it  with sheep and make it pay interest  and taxes.  If you value .the wool produced,  even condition must be kept up.  Sheep starved in winter will have  weak' spots in the wool.  Good   wool is    not    produced    by/  sheep  that arc  starved  and fed     alternately.       Evenness     of wool     depends upon cveness of conditions   in  the sheep.  Overfeeding or sudden changes  from poor to"very rich food combined with wants of exorcise, if not  uctual causes, will contribute lo tho  development of the loss of wool.

Don't arrange to do, nil of your haid  jobs in ono day, but on the days  when you wash, iron and churn plan  that the lest of the housework .may  bo'as light as possible. If you value the health of \our family, serve  as little fried food as possible, and  don't waste your time and strength  making rich pies, cakes and doughnuts. Cook a different vegetable  each day to servo with the potatoes  and meat. Have whole wheat biscuits or rolls at least once a day,  and cereals well cooked and seivod  with milk or cream and sugar may  well take the place of more complicated food. Uso plonty of fruits in  their season and dried or canned  fruits out of season. Make out a  bill of faro for each day in tho week  You may have to make variations  sometimes, but it will prove a help.  Have i ogulniiJiours jfor woik,  rest  and   lecreation. Don't     say     you  have no time to rest. Unless you  are stiongcr than the .avciago woman you must find time to lest or you  will suffer the consequences sooner or  later. _ In the economy of, life,  health is of a thousand times more  valuo than wealth. Take, a bath  every morning upon rising. If you  havo no bathroom arid it" is(not'always convenient toltake a sponge  bath, use a good flesh brush. Re-  movo your garments "and" brush back  und forth until the entno surface of  tho body glows red." Try this and  sco how much better, you will feel.  Twice a week at least take a. warm  bath with -plenty of fine soap. Always have your sleeping room window up two or three inches at least.  If you fear a draft, have a piece of  oilcloth or heavy cloth the width  of your window ���������frame ancLrcachmg  from the bottom half-way up the  sash. Sew a small brass ring' in  each corner and have coi responding  nails in the side of tho window frame  to slip tho rings over.  Clotho yourself comfortably and  neatly when about your work. * Try  a union suit, light weight in "summer and heavy in winter, stockings'  drawn up over the knee and~ fastened  with a safety pin, broad low heeled  shoes, tho corset discarded if possible, and the next garment a comfortable waist of white cotton made in  the simplest fashion. "It should  come just to "the waist line, where a  row of eyes permits the attachment  of tho skirt, which should be of  washable cotton goods and have a  corresponding row of hooks on the  under side of the band. A neat  wrapper, such ���as can' be purchased  ready-made^ quite . cheaply,i excellent  values'" being in ' dai k , pretty percale,  should be the next garment and with  an apron of bright percale, made to  hang in straight folds from bands  at tho shoulders, and a pretty tie  of wash silk at tho throat ono is  neatly and comfortably dressed without a constricting band  anywhere.  Now remember that housework" is  the best possible exercise if one goes  about it as one should. Maintain a  correct standing position always,  even when at the sink washing dishes. You do .this .when,you have  your shoulders and hips back, chest  up and -.chin in. Remember that  while this adds more than elegant  clothes to your personal appearance,  it also adds to your health, for it  is a well-established fact that improper standing and sitting crowds  the internal organs, thereby 'causing  disease.  If your sink and cooking table are  too low, try'placing a dry, goods  box under the cake board nnd dish-  pan when in use, to bring them  high enough so that you can stand  correctly. When .you sit do not  slouch down in your chair, but sil  upright. If too tired to do' this; lie  down flat on your back without' a  pillow and rest, relaxing every muscle and thinking of nothing at all���  just rest.  If possible, take a rest of this kind  every forenoon if not for longer than  five minutes. Have a longer nap in  tho afternoon. It will keep you  bright and fresh.  When making dresses, aprons, etc.,  for the littlo ones, use a good quality of percale, it costs almost twice  n.s much as print, but lasts twice as  long and washes better than ging-  linm. Lastly remember that the  happiness and comfort of your fum-  ily depend in a large measure upon  yourself and the bolter care you take  of yourself the better you enn do  your duty by your husband and children.

Kcane, is tho  followin-*   which-occurred in a' small''  bark on the home .voyago from India.  A shark was sighted astern,  and tho  second  mate  immediately lowered     a  h'ook for the big fish.  , In less     than  a minute' ho  had  secured tho   shark,  and with tlio  aid  of tho man at^ the  wheel,     had     landed it, y'a gyrating,  floundering,     somersaulting,   slapping  and banging creature on the monkey ',*  poop."   -  Gratings, coils of rope, man at tho  wheel,  second     mate,  and  everything  not built into the ship wero  slashed  round   in a  mad  jumble.    Tho     cap-. ,  tain came on deck filled with wrath.  "I'll soon run him foi'ard!" .cried  the mate, jumping down from- his  perch on the poop His first haul on  the ropo produced an ominous snapping of tho shark's laws The next  pull brought a writhe of the body  that so jammed the shark into the  narrow passage that the second  mate's only prospect of moving the  fish was to take hold of it bodily  and attempt to turn it round  Then  ensued   a  hand-to-fin  combat.  Tho man's first attemnt to carry his  antagonist    bodily  across    tho  lopes  turned   out  aboitne.     Tn  less     than __  ten    seconds     tho   shark had   dashed'  him   Into  a. mass  of red paint     just ���  laid   on,   rubbed  him  across  the  vermilion, knocked'him among the -blues, ,  and ,thcn wiped    him all over  about  ten  equavc yards *of the while     side -  of tho h'ouso-and bulwarks,-also now-.,  ly, painted.   -"���',,_ '   '  A   scientific 'attempt   to   collar .s tlie  shark  by -the   tail   was "met  with    "��.*  sounding    smack  across    the    second'1-  rnate's  faco.    .Then  followed  a Heels-,  over-head splashing, 'dashing struggle'  which  was  sustained  on  both     sides  with fury.    At ono time both combat-1  ants  appeared   to   be  hooked   by  the'  jaws  to  tho-same hook. " .   |"  How tho man kept His, log, or arm ���  out of the shark's mouth no one can!  explain. Foot by foot, straining,.  spring up nnrl down, nnd tying  knots in themselves, they came to-!  ward the ond of tho passage; and 1  when at last thov reached the open I  deck the one had become almost in-'.  distinguishable from the other, ��� so<  similarly and completely were they'  besmirched and besmeared with com-!  binations and shades of tho various!  colors among which they had wallow-;  ed and fought.  ONE FOR HIM.  The other day an old woman  bounced into an office with a notification that had been sent to her to  tho effect that a quarter's rales on  some property belonging to her wero  due.  Sho assorted sho had paid them.  A clerk got out the books to provo  that she had not, and suggested  that sho hud made a mistake. Sho'  still declared, however, that she had  paid.  "Don't you   ever  make mistakes?  she inquired.  The clerk assured her that he did  hot, and jokingly added : "The only  mistake I over made was when I got  married."  Sho looked at him for a moment,  and then said : "No; your wife made  that mistake." .  "Why is it," asked the philosopher,  "that misfortunes never come single*  ly ?" "Can't say," replied the  other man, "unless it is that on account of tho reception they get they;  are afraid to travel alone."
