Cause and Cure  of the Tired Feeling     That is Epidemic     at  This  ' " ' Season of the Year.  ,     The spring is here.    Von can fuel it  * ,ri every  part  of your body.       -Your  '   clothes  are      too     heavy   and  though  you  are   not    sick,   you  are  too' tired  to walk, loo tired to work, yes, even  tot  tired to eat.  it's Unit "spring  feeling."  ' On you know  the cause of it?    No,  all you want, to know  is how  to get  rid of it.    Well, tho explanation and  lhe cure  tire alike simple.  In the      winter you   "get  used"  to  V/iO cold, you think.    As a matter of  tact  it   is  the  body   that  gets      prepared.    It puts on a fortification      of  extra tissue-that keeps the cold  out.  In  the spring      time  this  tissue      is  thrown     off by the    body   and  if the  system  is .all in good working order,  the blood  carries      away  the cast-off  tissue,  winch  is  in turn  filtered      out  of the blood by the Kidneys, and ex-  f   polled from the body.  '   This imvms extra work for the Kidneys, ,nnd if they arc nt all  tired     or  worn   they fail  in     their work.     The  result is clogged  circulation and that  tired spring feolmg.-  '  The cure is to tone up tho Kidneys  with    Bodd's    Kidney  Tills.     Dodd's  .Kidney Pills    make healthy  Kidneys.  Healthy    Kidneys quickly  cleanse the  blood    of    all'   -impurities and      the  "spring 'feeling"  is  replaced  with      a  vigor of body and bouyancy of spirit  that makes work a pleasure.  .+..

Many people havo heard of the  search made by Greek divers under  the Turkish Government, and the  treasure discovered in the "Russian  admiral's ship, sunk at Tcherman at  the time of the naval battle of 1770,  when the Turkish fleet was completely destroyed.  Tho search has continued with  .striking .success. These fortunate  divers ,have become rich, but the  Turkish Government also has obtained some large amounts, inasmuch as it has reserved for itself  the lion's share.  It already has been .innnuced that  on the first shipment to Constantinople the divers obtained for their  part'the sum of 270,000 francs. The  daily work of the divers amounts to  irom 5;0()0 to 10,000 pieces of gold.  A special boat of the Admiralty,  manned by oflicers af tho Turkish  Navy and by a Government inspector, is stationed continually at tljjs  point. ' Each sack drawn from tho  water is registered, the pieces counted, and a receipt given to the divers.  It would be difficult to give even  a summary of tho innumerable- fortunes engulfed, in the sea. Among  others an English barque, which  foundered, in 1700, off tho coast of  Holland, had on board ingots of  gold and silver valued at about 130  millions, of which a very small part  was recovered. The "P.oyal Charter" went down near the Moelfram  with a cargo worth two millions,  and of this, as in so many of the  other cases, little or none has been  recovered.  ���A little Sunlight Soap will clean  cut glass and other articles until  they shine and sparkle.

This was done, and it was found  that Lhe other man's arm was two  inches longer. '  "Then," said tho objector deciscly,  "you will all see how manifestly unfair it is for us to fight with swords  unless 1 stand two inches nearer, to  him than he stands to mo."  GIRLS!

Tho apparatus can  be fixed to any pillar-box. A coin  is dropped Into a slot, the corner of  the letter is incertod, and the machine stamps the envelope with tho  amount paid. All you have to do  then is to drop tho letter Into . a  pillar-box  for   collection.

'Charming girl ? Graceful creature?

"Not Mrs.  Plummcr's  daughter,  I  am sure,"  she said,' in  a voice  naturally musical,  but the more so���be  cau&tr of a softer accent than that to  which Jessio was  used.

"  , The-sound of wheels on tho frost-  bound road and tho apparition of  Miss Lonsdale's bright-plumed hat  above rthe hedge-row, occasioned 'a  certain excitement .within Redwoods  Fu rm.  , /'Patience alive !" exclaimed Mrs.  Plummer, "Sir Arthur and Miss  Lonsdale i ' ;.aiid mo in a , cap- I  wouldn't bo seen out of ' my own  family with tor live-pounds.

"' Well, to be  sure, you must run out, I suppose,  and say I'll bo down in a minute,  and Plummcr's only just gone out  round. Only let me get clear off  before they come in," she concluded  brushing past Jessie and bustling  upstairs as fast as her round and  comfortable  figure could  go.,  .You cannot brush and turn mity  cheeses with clean 'hands or clean  garment s,' and Mrs. Plummer's 'appearance was certainly far from  magnificent. Her gown had    seen  hard service, her sleeves were rolled  Kalf-way up her plump,"firm arms, a  <very dingy old - shawl' was pinned  over her ,shoulders, her cap had  reached tho lowest rank in the cap  scale, of winch'Jessie^ believed there  were ten grades, each' grade fitted  for some special time and occupation; the .bunches-of-curls which adorned either side of her face at more  ceremonial .hours,^were now rolled  up m one sqlid curl on each temple,  giving her round,  apple-cheeked face               ���___ ....   , _���_   a'severity more    suitable for awing  could be anything but lefined.

"Jessie," she 'added,-  mu.-ingly, ' a caressing sort of name,  soft but not sufficiently dignified for  'her."  > A few days later Sir Arthur la-  .mented in her hearing that, what-  'with one thing and another,, he had  (,not a horse fit to ride that morning,^  ;>and supposed henmist ,.walk. ^Red-j  \voods was not so \ery far, but* he  fjwished also to call at Fern dale and  ���.Little  Marwell.' ��� ; *'  > "Why not let mo drive youh?"

"Thank you, my dear, I shall be  ',too glad' to avail myself of the  /honor, if you do not mind pottcting  hbout with an old fellow," he replied, so the ponies wcto brought  round, and they started. Sir Arthur  /hall buried in fins like a Russian  'prince, his niece fully occupied with  her ponies, who sniflod up tho frosty  Mr as they tosssed their pretty  jmanos and mado believe to take  ievcry bush and stone lor an enemy.  They     drove     through   the    park,  'A'hoie'     the noble oaks    and  beeches  bore    fairy-like foliage of boar-frost  'instead of    green .summer, leaves on  the     fine   tracery     of  their  boughs,  which sparkled with delicate     jowcl-  flasl-.cs  against    the pale blue     sky,  through   the village,  where the rime-  crystals glittered on thatched roofs,  and     women at cottage doors dropped courtesies;  past the inn with its  swinging 'ign,  the school-house with  jits  hl\e-likc hum,  thence along    tho  lUiigh     road.   They     soon came to a  pCbmfortablc  farm-house  standing     a  'jiiftlo way back from the road in    a  Jtrim flower-garden,   fenced by a low  stone wall over which tho dainty lit-  itle  "roving sailor"  spread its  shin-  fning    trails,      and yellow stone-crop  fand patches of green and gold moss  t.   The house was of gray stone,  biddoa    by creepers,  which     in  distinguished guests, to crown all  she wore, tied-high up over the ends  of the crossed shawl, a large, coarse  apron, the strings of which refused  to do anything but tie themselves  in= knots while she was shouting  complaints and directions to Jessie.  "\\ell, if ever 1 was in a pickle for  visitors!" she might well exclaim,  on surveying herself in the glass.  Jessto was soon opening the door  to receivo tho guests; \ isitors very  rarely had occasion to ring at Redwoods. It was deemed inhospitable  not to go out to welcome them as  soon as they appeared in sight. The  sight of her caused Sir Arthur to  remove his hat from his head and  himself from tho - low pony chaise,  and confirmed Miss Lonsdale in her  admiration. Tho touch of the un-  gallant frost, which does not hesi-  "tato to nip the nose of rarest  beauty? only brought a delicate rose  to Jessie's cheeks, the sunshine fell  full m her faco, causing hot- to lift  ono slender hand to shade her beautiful eyes, while with the other she  held a light* blue wrapper, one end  of which was thrown over her head,  beneath her chin; her bright hair,  tho true "chiom'c d'or all' aura  spar-to" so dear to Tusso, glittered  in tiny ruffled rings about her temples, ns if each separate hair were  n beam of light. Appearing thus,  (all and slim, in her plum black  dress,- whilo some whilo pigeons,  startled by the wheels, flew up with  clanging wings and settled on the  lichen-bordered brown roof above  her, she was a delightful vision. She  stepped lightly down tho garden-  walk, unconscious of the admiration  sho evoked, to ask Sir Arthur if he  would walk in whilo she sent a boy  to fetch Mr. Plummer, who .was  somewhere about the farm.       J  Sir Arthur preferred to go in  search of Mr. Plummer himself, and  when Uo was gone Jessie went out  to ask Miss Lonsdale to come in.  Sho assented with a smile, and  laying the rents aside, alighted.  Tall, well mado, warmly clad in rich  furs, with tho jewel-like breast of a  bird glowing iridescent in her hat,  with thai Indefinable air of ono daily  used to polished human intercourse  and the Cohstant homage due to an  absolute grace of speech and movement���Clara Lonsdale seemed to  Jessie, who rarely saw but homely,  often uncouth people, a being from  a more gracious sphere, and her  clear glance fell with a becoming  deference before the penetrating gaze  tifummeir made a very tjowor of bloom  'fofQ tijfed roof, waft? richly embroidered   of the lady'e goldon-brown ayes"  room with heavy furniture,, and  two  fair-sized  casement     wmdows,    with  deep' cushioned' seats.''"    Somo sporting prints  udorned  the   walls,     two  guns were on a rack over  the chimney piece,     massive silver  tankards,  gleamed  upon a side-table,  a bright  fire blazed in a largo grate with hobs  to    it,     here    stood    a high-backed  wooden arm-chair which Jessie pluc-  pd     for    her   -guest.      The battered  form of'  Rebastopol    reposed -in��� <��� a  tight tabby coil near the  fire; '  just  in front of a window stood a small  easel 'holding    a canvas on which   a  landscape in  oil  was   beginning      to  show;   palettes,   brushes,   and    tubes  of color scattered  near showod  that  the     artist had   but just  loft  work.  An old bureau with its sloping desktop  closed,   stoorl  against  one  wall,  and   a sofa,   wide   enough  to    serve  for a  bed at   a pinch,  was    against  another; a few pots of growing flowers were  in   tho window,  and a dish  of  russet-red    apples   on   tho  top  Of  the bureau.      All  these details   Miss  Lonsdale  took in    one  rapid glance.  Tho interior was cosy, yet there was  a lack of something���which she soon  discovercd to bo books.     Those were  few but    not" select.      Ono leather  broken-backed tome with an  illegible  title sorved to raise a flower-pot in-'  to tho light? another mado a    press  for  Mrs.   Plummcr's   cap  laces     and  ribbons.      Jessto went straight to a  cupboard  by  the fire-place and   took  out' a dish  of    round "golden-brown  cakes and some decanters  and wineglasses,  which sho placed      on      the  table,   in   accordance   with   the ' unwritten   custom that   supposed      all  guests to be hungry.'  "Mrs. -Plummer's dough-nuts are  irresistible," Miss Lonsdale said, accepting one with a smile that went  straight to Jessie's fresh heart; a  rare smile that came slowly and  mado fier seem beautiful, though not  really so. >  Jessie smiled brightly bock, the  smile of n grateful child.' "Tt would  be no use," she said, "for "my cousin  to. make doughnuts, if no one came,  to  appreciate  them."  "There is reason in that," 'Miss  Lonsdale returned; "there are in art  two essential factors, the artist and  the amateur or admirer."  "Yes," Jessie rejoined," "it would  be futile to. write even an 'Iliad,' if  there were no readers."'  This, Miss Lonsdale reflected, was  not?-what one might cxpect-"from a  miller's' daughter of' eighteen, and  wondered to what oxtcnt .the young,  lady was conscious of her superiority. But Jessie, who v sat. onr the  other, side .of tho hearth sideways to  the "window, in such a manner, that  the sunshine lighted her face and  kindled the gold.,of her hair, looked  perfectly unconscious of self.  "You must be very lonely," Miss  Lonsdale said, with an abruptness  that brought the color to Jessie's  face, yet with an accent that bespoke such a sjmpathy and accurate  reading as she had not expected;  "forgive me," she.added, "but your  face interest ed me when I saw. you  at .church. I speak so plainly because I' feel distinctly drawn to  you."  "This is too Jcind," Jessio faltered, "but you will be disappointed. I  am not at all interesting, especially  to myself. I would rather forget  that I am alive."-'   ,  "Poor,"child !" said Clara, in , a  rich, caressing voice; "poor, -'dear  child !" ' -  Jessie rose quickly and knelt before the fire, very busy at mending  it, with hei\faco averted from the  lady. Clara smiled a peculiar little  smile that Jessie could not see, and  with ready tact went over to the  easel. a    r  "From nature '" she asked, with  some surprise, .when she saw the distant park with the village and  church in the foreground all firmly  and truly sketched.

Miss  Meade." ,  Jessie had persuaded Philip, who  recognized her decided talent to let  her exchange Miss Blushford's fine  pencil drawings and water-color  flowers and fruit for lessons from a  broken-down artist, whose constant  potations had not been ablo to  quench a spark of genius which  might have brought him to the  front rank, and tinder this man sho  had made somo progress and learnt  to cherish great hopes. Had she  seen many of the great masters ?  Who was her teacher ? Did she  know tho Claude Lorraine ot Mar-  well Court V Had she seen the Dc  Wints and Constables ? She could  scarcely belicvo that Miss Meade had  seen nothing and yet painted so  charmingly.  While they wore standing thus at  tho easel, Cousin Jane, her curls  beautifully arranged in glossy bunches on either cheek, with a cap five  grades,higher than that of the  cheese-brushing, and her afternoon  gown and apron on, came iu and  was complimented upon her doughnuts. Almost at tho same moment  Sir Arthur was seen returning to  the carriage, so Miss Lonsdale took  leave and went out to join him, accompanied by Jessie, who stood  until the pony-phaeton with its  smart groom, Russian prince Sir  Arthur, and bright-plumed lady  driver had vanished like some ethereal vision.  (To bo Continued.)  PEAS AND OATS TOGETHER.  Peas and oats make a grand soiling food for milch cows when grown  in due balance" and a''rich land, says  Professor Thb's." Shdwr-of" Minnesota.^  This crop may be sowed on almost'  any kind of land that is rich,': and  well prepared ana moist, and it comes  anywhere in the rotation. The" small  variety of peas arc more suitable-than  tho marrow-fat varieties, as they produce fine straw, making them more  palatable. The, weak"' poinf^about  this; food for soiling' purposes- isc.tho  short period during, which "���iW.* can-  be fed green. This period will";not  usually'extend beyond - thrco oiVufour,  weeks from ono sowing," but * it. may  bo extended by having another-plot  sown two or three weeks later than  tho first. " ',-!>.,  This crop may usually be best sown,  on- full plowed land, rich naturally,  or mado so, and sown as early as  tillage is practicably in the Spring.  Tho modes of sowing will vary with  tho conditions. In many cases the  seed may best be sown with the grain  drill' after the peas and oats havo  been mixed. On reasonably still .clay^  this method of sowing will answer  well. , ,    ,   i    . ''"' '*''"  In^ other situations, as on prairie  soils somewhat weedy, it has been  found best to scatter the peas over  the ground" while yet 'unplowed,^ and  then to plow ,in. four ,to-fiye,,inches  cep and in rather narrow furrow > slic-:  cs to prevent the seed from.growing  in rows to distend from another.^ ,L  The oats "should then be sown *ju*st  before tho parts come' through 'the  ground broadcast or-with drill ��' and,  tho ground should then be harrowed  to destroy young? weeds and to prevent the escape of moisture from the  soil. IVhen thus sown the, oats and  peas -reach -the perfect" condition - for  cutting- more nearly than when sown-  at the same time, and.the^oats arc,  less likely to oyersliadow the peas.  It would not-'bo 'possible to!f,ria'me  tho proportions of seed to "bo sown  tliat would best suit all ..soil ^condi-,  tions, as they vary greatly.'' " Where-'  peas grow better i!;:a less quantity,  should be sown. t * The" proportions  that are exactly suitable for any locality can only be'ascertained-by actual, tests. 'The idea should be kept  prominent that the peas are the more  important factor in the experiment.  They are more nitrogenous than.tho  oats, and " are also more palatable.  The proportion of oats that will sustain the peas from falling will be  enough. , -   ..  -Usually, not less than two and ' ,-a  half bushels -per acre should be sown  of- the ���- mixture.. Ordinary not more  than one-third should be oats. 'On  some prairie soils one peck of oats  rjer acre should suffice. On other  soils it may bo necessary to increase  the oats until -they furnish by mea^  sure nearly half the seed used.    r  This food is exactly for milk    pro-'  duction.        From 15 to  20 tons  per  acre     may be  taken of the mixture,  and it may be followed "in many seasons-by a catch crop on  the      same  ground  more  especially  of"- rape.   The  cutting  may  begin  as soon as      the  peas come into *bloofn and may  continue until the crop is nearly ripe-   .  The   vdwarfr  Essex   rape   ,crop w is  more     frequently    grown for pasture  than for soiling 'food,/and yct.sit-' is  an  excellent,    soiling, food-,for ,milch  cows.       Some    will "not    except'this  statement on the gToundSthat' it "will  taint-the milk.    That depends.on how-  it is fed.    If .fed to cows* just   after  the milk has'been withdrawn it-may  be given twice a day, and in consider-'  able quantities.       But it.would^ J>e  impossible'to     food so"'much!even''in  the manner indicated above, that the  system would become so saturated as  to produce taint.    But this certainly  will not follow from modern*feeding.  When  it  can be done, the, ideal, way  would be   to  feed    rape as a soiling"  food one     end  of the day  and  some  other kind of soiling the.other end of  the day  Dwarf Essex rape may be' sown  on any kind of rich moist soil .;of  reasonable open texture. Deep humus soils, as for instance, slouch  soils grow it in greatest perfection.  It* would scarcely be possible to nvikc  land too rich for the growing or  rape, and the yields arc usually in  proportion to the richness and cleanness of the soils. Early crops arc  best sowed on Fall plowed land.'  of oecf animals can bo accurately 'do-',  scribed und can be learned by" tuij (  farmer of .average intelligence.  The profitable feeding cattle that  bring the high prices. on tho market  all possess certain characteristics.  They have a straight top line, with  broad, 'deep bodies and short legs.  If the head and legs were cut off,  the remaining portion of the animal's .body would resemble a box  with'round corners.  Especially important  evidences      of  good "feeding^ability are clear, bright  eyes and broad forehead, with moderate   short    -'head     and   short,   thick  neck',--'a well-sprung rib,  strong  loins  and a long, level rump.  r The whole animal should be smooth  and evenly covered with thick flesh.  �����A moderately  large  paunch on      a  healthy,5^ vigorous     steer  should      b��  regarded* as a desirable  indication'.  "-Moderately fine bones is also an in-'  dicatiomof'a good feeding quality.  'On'    the      contrary,   a  coarse "bone  with long body,  large head and general appearance  of coarseness  is     always to be-considered an undcsirabl*  characteristic*  ---Cattle,possessing the desirable characteristics mentioned above will fatten moro quickly and will distribute  their flesh on those portions of th>  body whero * the' highest-priced' cuti  are .located.  ��� It. is impossible here to "give all  tho information one will neod in applying these, principles.

No knowledge has greater value  to the farmer than that which gives  him the ability to .select profitable  feeding animals.  The animal is a machine, and as  there are great difference in diflerent  machines, so ,<ire there great difterenc-  es in tho efficiency of different animals.  There are somo beef animals that  will consume corn, hay and grass and  produce thorerroni an unfinished carcass which will sell for five cents,  live weight,   on the market.  There arc other cattle fed" on exactly the same Icind of food for the  length of time that will bring from  five and one-half to six cents per  pound live weight.  This difference is not altogether a  difference of condition or fatness, but  depends upon the conformation of  the animal.  The correct conformation which  must be presented in the batter class  a Imagine ���yourself on the seashore  in Alaska, in the month of September, rambling on for the pleasure ol  it/ and.- picking up a curious shell  now and then. You see ahead a  fresh water stream which is in your  path.'i ,As you ' approach you arc  surprised to find tho whole ., stream  filled, crowded, with struggling salmon i *If you follow the stream  oack from, the shore a mile or so,  you will find it literally packed with  salmon all the way, although the  water.is, so shallow that no fish is  more tlian half covered.  Your, surprise . is increased when"  you -approach near cnough-'to touch  with'your foot, and find that they  pay not the slightest attention to  you.. They snuggle fiercely on up  the stream, the fcinales''to deposit  their'eggs, the males to protect tho  females. . All arc intent upon that  mad, suicidal rush up the stream.  It- ill suicidal because not a single  salmon out ol these thousands before you ever comes back alive.  From the outset they neither cat  nor rest, and as you follow them  up stream you soon see tho __ effects  of their"' battle. Their flesh is  knocked oft against the stones;, here  against his fellows, with nothing  left of his once powerful tail but  the "-bone1!, and many of thent^aro  broken; the flesh may be falling from  his back .or torn from his belly, still  he fights^'on until  death.  If it is* a female you may sec tli/  eggs dragging from an ugly gash it1()  hct side, one fin is torn off, two  more are useless, every effort, to propel hoi sell, leaves a trail of blood,  but she swims on with  tho rest.  You uie sickened by such a sight,  and conclude that the shallowness of  tho stream will account for the condition of tho fish. So you go to a  larger stieawi, thirty feet in width  and eight feet in depth; here you  find thousands of salmon lashing tho  water into foam in their efforts to  distance one another. They are  swimming packed layer on layer, like  saidines. lletc lhe conditions of  tho smaller streams are repeated on  a larger scale. The fish are not  only torn to pieces by rocks, but  destroy one another If you pick  up one that nppi*.--s *v.holc he will  falf to pieces of his own  weight.

Investigations into "/the. climate  and agricultural possibilities of the  Yukon " Territory    have    greatly  modified   the ideas   hitherto'held  with regard  to that  region. - The  climate on the coast is no guide to  the climate of the interior.; in fact,  the   mountain   barrier,   acts  as   a  wonderful shelter to the hinterland'.  The  winds  from the "Pacific pass  over into,the Yukon as a.constant  Chinook or warm, dry .wind, during  the open season, which lasts from  about the middle of April till the'  end of-Sept-Mttbcr.    During  three  months ofthe year there is a daily  average aPeighteen'hours of sunshine, end consequently the growth  of   vegetation   is   enormous.     At  Dawson   City,   garden   produce���  lettuces, cabbages; cauliflowers and  tomatoes ��� furnish   large   crops,  while  small   fruits- grow   almos��t  wild.   -Professor   -Macoun    found  barley, eats and wheat were being  largely raised for fodder ; that barley and oats sown in June ripened  iu August,   and   samples   of   red  wheat   sown   at   the   same   time,  though not quite ripe at the  latter  date, would certainly have ripened  if put .in   earlier.     One  hundred  grains of Yukon-grown wheat were  tested for germinating power at the  Government Experimental Farm at  Ottawa, where the whole made remarkable    progress   and   growth  without developing one weak grain.  As to the native grasses, of some  $fty specimens, all  have hitherto  mad*   good   growth,   and   should  spread rapidly over the valleys and  hillsides as the country is opened  Preaching at Vancouver lately,  Rev.

mmmmsmm a     ��     ���     ���  A FLAT -        :j:  -M  ��r*H-*!~M��-!"H-'H~;-+'l~l~H';*'  iMuvtha, says I aui a fool.  |Mot'tha is welcome' to her opinion;  Die are others who thinlc dilTercnt-  But I will not boast.' The  JlawiB never did, and Uiey have done  real things in then- time.  IMurUia says that I am not capale of taking care of money. 1 only  lish that Martha would trust mo  |lf.h more than halt a sovereign' a  look,  that's all.  I Martha has    plenty   of money���fiyc  liotisand in Consols, eight thousand  li various corporation stocks, and a  In If share in Allen and Darker. Tom  lllon was her first husband,  and the  Itonoy  is      hers   for life.      Then     it  |ocsflto nephews and nieces.  1 These ' nephews   and  nieces   resent  liy being Martha's husband,  and in-  linuatc that I married her for    her  |ioncy;  or, ns Job Allen,  in  his ele-  infc way, says,  "for a homo." They  luito   ignoro     the  fact    that  I  was  Martha's first sweetheart,    and -that  |he throw mo over for Tom Allen.  One morning last July Martha said  I'Jotity" (my name is John Chcsnoy  Jjlain)���''Jonty" she said, "Archie  Is ooming over to)stay with me for'a  lew. weeks.' Now, remember what  I've' told you of him."  If all" was true' that Martha    had  ratd- about her - brother  Archie;-    hef  iras as great a villain as there was  to' be- found.     He never had a friend  Jir   acquaintance    but     he borrowed  Inoney- from him.   and    never repaid.  Pe had   lived under many names, in  lany towns.     And tho more   places  ie" lived in tho more bills for lodgings he left unpaid.     He had   never  lone a stroke of  work in his life���if  no except the thinking out   schemes  by which ho hoped to' make a living  iy defrauding someone.  ^Archie came.     A big, genial fellow,  ibout ten years younger thant I. He  yreeted    mo   affectionately,  arid    we  |werc chums at once.  Archie didn't borrow money from.  Jmc; at least, not much. I haven't  ���much to lend out of half, a sovereign  la week". And he taught meja few  Ithings that will come in useful.  ���There's a certain, way of dealing at  lall-fours; and there are things at  lwhist;."and there's a way of marking  ���dominoes; and there's a cute' sys-  |tem of giving losers wrong change. "*  Some day, when I feel a bit. confi-  Ident7 I,shall try. some things Archie  |taugh"t'*me. -  "All you want," said''Archie, "is a.  Iflnt,     Jonty.   '    Get   hold of a flat,  I with money,' of course,  and the rest  I is easy." a , ���  Tlo    know    ti      system    of backing  I horses, by getting, on bets'after    the  race was run a.nd he knew the result  I "But  tho bookies aro gotting a   bit  | too fly," ho would say.  "Spiling tips is all right,"  he   rc-  1 marked, "but too many at tho gaire  nowadays :     overcrowded    and     degraded���not fit for gentleman."  'Jonty," said Marthar a few days  | "after   Archie's  coming,   "you're    not  lending Archie an>   money,  I hope?"  "No,   dear,"  I  replied,    "now  can  I out of ten shillings a week ?"  "It's enough for you," sho retorted.      "And    don't    let Archie entice  1 you into any trap,   lie will do it if  he can. xnako anything by it."  "1   think  you   are   mistaken,   dear   "  I began.  "Not in Archie Wild," she replied;  "T'vo known him too long. Hut I  think you are safe."  IViion I married Martha, or, .as  Job Allen'slanderously says, "when  Martha picked him out of tho gutter," I admit that I had been un-  foi tunato in business and had no  ]-balance at tho bank; but I had a  few possessions, and one of them  was an old oil painting. It was  the fulUiength portrait of a gentleman, and was very dim and cracked  all over, and the top corner was  badly torn.  I noticed Archio looking at the  picture one day, and, as 1 was shaving the next morning, ho strolled  into the room and glanced at it  agulti.  "Yours '?"   ho askod.  "Yob,"  I replied; -"my very  own."  "Urn I" ho    said.      "Not so    bad.  Let's have a good look."  Ho took a large reuding-glass from  his pocket and mado a thorough examination of the picture. Then he  stood Iwiclc and gazed at it from  dillcrciit positions.  "Not half bad, .Jonty. Want to  noil ?"  "TTow  much ?"  "What d'you say to  a tanner?"  A  tenner I   Ton  pounds, !  1     would  have Mold-l!io l!-.i:i , !������',;  :���! fovcreigii.  "Done !" I cried, gunning my chin.  ��� "And done you would be," ho  laughed. "J .listen to me, Jonty;  you're about the '.lowest hand at  doing a trade that t ever camo  across. This picture, this work of  .art," ho looked at it attentively,  ''though unsigned, may bo the work  of ono of tho great masters. May  be, 1 say. Probably it is not. But  wo���you and 1���ore business people,  Jonty, my son. Wo mast sell this  for iui old master; and if we can  only got hold of a flat of the right  sort we might get fifty pounds for  it."   ���'-.  "Yoil think so?" I asked, fixing  a-piece of plaster on my chin.  "Sure," ho returned. "Now, I'll  do .the square thing by you, Jonty.  J'vo a great opinion of you, and in  this transaction we'll go partners.  ���You would have sold mo the picture  for ton pounds. Now, I know a  .'man; his name is Mortimer. This  Mortimer ia a Juggins, who fancies  ka &IQWS something about arfc, 'He  shall bo our flat. We will soli hiui  tho picture for fifly pounds���at least,  t will. And that will give us twenty-five  pounds   each."  "But " 1 began, meaning to toll  him that, as the picture was mine,  tho fifty pounds should be mine  also.  "No," ho replied.*/'! could not  think of taking'more J than twenty-  five. I will look up Mortimer,, and  toll" him I know of a bargain to ( be  hadr You'll.' earn-iyo'ur twenty^ive.-  pounds easily'^criough; Jonty. Trust  to mo."  That same evening he told mo that  Mortimer was on. "He's as eager  ���well, as eager as flats'usually arc.  Now, Jonty, not a "word to'^Martha  if you value my friendship. I've arranged with Mortimer that he shall  sec the picture at ,the Albion. You  slide it out without Martha seeing  you, and be there at three. And Mr.  fltiy Mortimer is ours."    "-^'-" ���������'  So it fell out. After several unsuccessful attempts to smuggle rthe  picture out of the house' without  Martha seeing,- T -took-a bold .stop  and walked coolly downstairs with-  it under'my arm. Martha met me  in  the hall. ��� >  "John Chosney Blain," sho- said,  looking first at the picture; then 'tit  me,  "whero    arc.  you -taking    that  ,1 replied,  picture ?  "To    'the  restorer's, V  adopting-the methods of brother Archie. "You"know how cracked 'and'  dirty it is dear..

No; Mr. Blain' could  not think of, it. , His pride would  not allow him."    s   "  "No,", -1 echoed, "I could not  think of such a'thing." " }   '  "Now, if you had said sixty  pounds," said Archie.  They set to work bargaining, and  finally Mortimer agreed to buy -,thc  picture for fifty pounds. ' "And,"  said Archie, , "let ' mo congratulate  you, Mr. Mortimer, on,,having acquired an undoubted gem at such\ a-  low figure:" 7 -    '''-_    - >        ���  Mortimer looked, very pleased, and  was certainly" the flat Archio mado  him out to bo. fie' handed me ten  five-pound , notes, aud after I had  paid for a bottle" of champagne "'ho  went off with the picture.  "Bravo !" sn id ., Archie, smacking  me on the back;' "yo'u'did well, Jonty, my son.- ' "That's tho way to  handle flats."  I gave him his twenty-five pounds.  ''Jonty," he *said, , pocketing tho  notes, "if wo had capital wo should  do great things, you and T."  On our way'back ho persuaded mo  to buy him an expensive scarf-pin.  "As commission," he explained.  A few days after Archio burst into  my. room in a most excited manner.  "Jonty," he said, throwing himself into a chair, "have you a pair  of heavy shooting-boots, with soles  not loss than two inches thick���with  long,' projecting nails? Something  heavy, something that will leave a  mark. If you have, put them on  and kick me. Kick mo well. Jump  on nio, Jonty, my son. Trample on  me, and tread me into tho dust for  being such a juggins."  "What ever is the matter ?" t  asked,  anxiously.  "Everything," he groaned. "That  picture; that gom; that masterpiece ! We were the flats. It's altae-  burn,' Jonty, and worth anything  from eight hundred to fifteen hundred pounds !"  "What?" I gasped.  "It's true. Wo'vo done ourselvos.  Look well in the paper, won't it?  Thus : 'There was sold at Christie's  yesterday the portrait of. a gentleman, by Sir Henry Racburn. It wus  an example of tho best work by this  artist, and may bo coiisfklcrod fairly  cheap at tho price of fifteen hundred  guineas it brought. We understand  that the picture recently changed  hands at  fifty  pounds.' "  "But     how do    you   know    il\s a  flrcybtin'?" I asked.  "A JUieburn, Jonty; a genuine  Racburn. I've just been to Mortimer's. 'He's had it refrained, and  on tho lower purt of the picture, a  part your frame covered/ T saw the  signature, 'II. Racburn. "'  ,, He slapped his knee.' "Now I coino  to think of it, Mortimer can't have  seen tho signature or he'd have mentioned it.'Not a word, Jonty. I'm  off,.to, see him again. Read these."  He'was'"off 'like a shot, throwing  down as lie went a number of newspapers. ,Half bewildered, I took them  up and found in them marked paragraphs relatingHo the sale of Rao-(  burn portraits, which seemed to sell  for anything from three hundred to  fiftcon hundred  pounds each,  During tho day Archio turned up  again. ��� "'"We're all right, Jonty,"  he said;/ "Mortimer hasn't {.potted  the' signature. Wc must buy the  picture .back." , '  ,_,''Yc&,"��� 1 replied, with sonic hesitation. Tho greater portion of my  twenty-five pounds ,had found its  way into Archie's pockets. TTc had  been' showing me , some now card  games.      . ���      '  , "How much have you ?" ho asked.  T reckoned up my assels to    eight  pounds some shillings.  "Whew*!" he whistled. "That's a  bad look-out. And I parted with my  available balance yesterday; a pressing , bill���you understand. But let  us go over'to Mortimer's. You can  see ��� the signature, and we'll work  him again. Once a flat always a flat  you know."  Wc went over to Mortimer's. Ho  occupied "two rather untidy rooms  over ,ii tobacconist's; but, as- Archio  explained to me; Mortimer was only  in .town for a week or so from his  place "in Yorkshire. "Five thou a  year. Keeps hunters. A bit eccentric. Thinks he knows something  about pictures," was. whispered in  my ear as wo, went upstairs.  The picture was hung in-a prominent position and had, been put into  a>ncat,gilt frame, showing more of  the painting. When Archie attracted,;: Mortimer's 'attention .for a few  minutes Tt gave it a close -scrutiny,  and there, dimly, but surely enough,  was tho signature my frame had covered. ; T nodded to Archie.  ' "Mr. 'Mortimer," ho began, "since  he saw you last my friend, Mr.  Blain, has had a- small windfall���a  legacy, in fact; and. his first thought  on receiving the good-news is for  his picture. He comes to me and  saj'S,. 'Mr. Wild, I "should like my  picture >bacfcJ "      <-...',,    . ,  ���  "But���r'\' interrupted -Mortimer.  * "Yos,-"^ repilcd'Archie. - "I said to  him,;'But, Mr. Blain,'a sale is'a  sale.- You'.sell the picture to Mr.  Mortimer, and he docs not wish to  part with the picture again. The  transaction is Completed.' -But Mr.  .Blain-has'prevailed on me to >��� sec  you, and I-ask you to think of, the  circumstances. This picture is ' the  cherished possession of our friend.  This -was tho last link connecting  him with the past���a past that had  its pains and its pleasures���a past  with memories, Mr.  Mortimer.-  -"Under the stress of misfortune  our friend' breaks this link. The  picture is gone; for four clays he is  alone,''abandoned. Thero is no picture to remind him of his past glories. - While he moans aloud in his  solitude Providence comes to his rescue. He, receives, -a legacy; he  finds he can repair the link ho 'has  broken: ' 'You will not be hard on  o,ur friend. He is getting old, and  the Joss of his picture mav tell on  him."  >"I_'bought the picture," said Mortimer, stubbornly, "and I likn.it. I  will not sell it back."  "Then you may drive Mr. Blain to  do something, desperate," said. Archie,   moodily,   looking   at  me.  "Yes," I broke in, trying to get  a break in my vo*"ce. "If I cannot  get "the picture a back I Mo not  know what I may do." And I  foldcd'my arms and let my head sink  on to my breast.  Mortimer began to ��ot alarmed.  Archie chimed in again', and we  worked on him till at last ho agreed  to- sell. '  But to our dismay ho wanted two  hundred pounds, and we could not  make him abate a singlo shilling.  '���'If Mr. Blaiti has conic into money  and wants his picture so much, he  must pay for it. I've a right to  make a profit out of my deal," said  Mortimer, decisively. "I don't wuiil,  to part with it; but for two hundred it is Mr. Blnin's again. And,"  ho continued, as ho showed us downstairs, "I'm off in a few days, so he  must make up his mind quickly."  "What shall wo do '?" I askod ruefully of Archie, when wc got outside.  "You mustn't lose it," he returned. "What is a paltry two hundred  when the picturo is worth twelve  hundred at least ? Let me see.  Your life policy !"  "What  of  it?"  Surrender it.      You can  hundred     on     it   easily  said Archie, on our way home. "And  be sureito place a high enough 'reserve." -      "'  A week before the picture did go  to' Christie's. Archie was suddenly  called away to Paris. "Got hold of  a good thing,- Jbnly. Another flat  ���just come into fifty thousand. Too  good to be missed. Sorry I can't  stay for the sale. You've placed  tho reserve at twelve hundred ?"  "Yes," I replied. "And you get  twenty per cent, on anything . over  six hundred."  Archie , went to Paris and - the  "Raoburti" went to Christie's. The  best  bid  was  thirty-five  shillings !  1 was a day or two getting over  it. Then 1 sent,the picture to an expert, who told me it was not a -Rae-  burn nor in-any way resembling a  /ork by that artist.  -I often wonder which of them  wrote the signature���Archie or his  confederate, Mr. Guy Mortimer, tho  wealthy  Yorkshire  landowner.  I don't feel so well jusr, now,' for.  in thirteen davs Martha will givo me  tho inoney to pay my lifts premium  and will ask, mo for the receipt.

I was resolved to provo to  Martha and her little-minded relatives ..that I had business capabilities. I disposed of my life .policy  (or the sum of two hundred,'pounds.  We went to Mortimer, who seemed  rather surprised to see us, and was  reluctant about parting with tho picture. . But Archie hinted that ho  had a good opinion of Mr. Mortimer,1  which ho would not like disturbed;  and eventually tho picturo .returned  to my possession. I -gave "Archio five  pounds,.-."as commission."

Many pooplo will' be surprised,' to  hear that the,Karl of Aberdeen is a  skilled engine-driver���so skilled, indeed, that he could even drive an  engine from London to the North  without difficulty. Locomotives have  been his hobby ever r.ince he can remember. As a' boy he delighted in  travelling on tho engines of a local  railway, often acting as fireman.  Few people are aware that the  King never by any chanco partakes of  butter. Another curious feature (��������� of  the Royal taste is that His Majesty  never takes tea mado with milk; he  prefers it in tho Russian fashion, with  a piece of lemon instead of milk.  King Edward has a very* small foot,  comparatively speaking, for he never  wears a'larger boot-'than an "eight."  His ' hats, on the contrary, are of  more than  average size,  running    to  A very remarkable collection ��� of  photographs.is that of Sir Benjamin  Stone,, M.P.. who will take charge  of the historic division of the British  Photographic Section at the St.  Louis Exhibition.-' They number nearly 30,00,0, and depict places ho has  visited and scenes he has witnessed in  his many travels. _, In the eighteen  years during which Sir Benjamin's  hobby has been amateur photography  he has taken in the aggregate 10,000  negatives, these being chiefly time  exposures with a large camera.  There is at present living in Bat-  tcrsea, England, a nonagenarian,  Thomas Atkinson, who has a twofold claim to distinction. He is the  oldest engineer in the country, .and  he began his working life as a rivet  boy in George Stephenson's locomotive works. That was in 1824., and  in 1823 Atkinson succeeded in getting  himself bound apprentice in Stephenson's fitting shop for five years. In  the la-st year of his apprenticeship he-  was one of the litters engaged on the  "Rocket," now' in South Kensington  Museum. Atkinson still possesses his  indentures, dated March r26th, 1825,  written in Stephenson's own hand.  The Crown     prince of    Roumanta,  who  is-nephew  to  the King  of Rou-  mania,   once  had  an  amusing  adventure    while    shooting    in the  Carpathians.     Prince Ferdinand  was. most  anxious  to  kill  a bear,  and  on    this  particular  day he  had  not  been    out  more than ten minutes when a couple  of these animals were tracked, and he  had the good luck to bring down one  at the  first shot.     On  examining tho  carcass  it  was found  that tho     nose  was  pierced  as  though  the  bear  had  worn   a  ring,   and  subsequent     questions elicited  the fact-that the. local  Amtsinann,     anxious      to  please  the  Prince,     had     purchased  the   "wild"  hears from a travelling showmnn and  turned I hem loose in the Iloyal path!  Mr.     G.   F. Watts,     the  celebrated  painter,     was  almost      entirely  solf-  taught.

To-day we havo on.  our ships scores of guns each 'of  which coiildf if need be, fire a shell  weighing a third of a ton, and capable of piercing 3" feet of wrought  iron at a mile distance: from the  cliffs 'of Dover and land it on French  soil well on the other side of Calais.  Such is the wonderful development in  naval ordinance within loss than forty years.  Tho intermediate stages between  those two extremes wore rapid. After  the 64-ton gun came in succession  guns of' 9,' 12, and 18 tons'^ weight���  the lattor firing ,a. 4.00- IbV'.'shell ablo  to pierce 9-inch armor. , Then camo  2,"-ton and 3,j-ton guns, monsters  with mouths a foot ;wido; a y8-ton  gun throwing an 800 lb, shot followed;, and then, by a leap,'an 80-ton  gun was"produced���a' leviathan, with  a bore of 16 .inches., ablo to send  a 1,700 lb. projectile as clean through  2 feet of armor- as a red-hot neodlo  would pass through a'pat of "butter.  These, guns " were, 'however, all  muzzlc-Ioadors, and , .when breech-  loading was adopted in 188.6 thoro  was a quick' relapse to smaller guns  of 14 and 22 tons, the sizo again  rapidly growing until from a 07-ton,  gun- wo jumped at- a single bound to  - MONSTERS OF 110 TONS,  every firing of which ran into      hundreds  of'pounds,'while their serviceable life was .measured by about 100  shots.     7,    .-      \   ,       ,   j-  A much more" useful and practicable '  weapon is tho 12-inch Viekers-Maxiiu  gun, which is now tho heaviest and  most powerful mounted on__a_British-j.  battleship. This marvellous gun  weighs' 30 tons, of which 14 .tons aro  represented by .120^ miles of wire  wound around- it, arid is 41 feet long.  It dispatches a a projoctile ' weighing  850 lbs.���tho weight of half-a-dozen  men���with such terrific force that it  will piorce 38 -inches of wrought iron  at 1,000 yards, and only 4 inches  less at " twice that "distance. This  projectilo loaves,the muzzle with a  velocity of over 1,610 miles an hour  ���twenty times the speed of an express train at,its fastest���and with  an energy equal to 40,220-   ",tons.  More astonishing still is the  of this projectile, weighing moro  than a third of a ton, since with  tho gun at a proper elevation it  would be quite possible to send tho  shell over the top of the highest  mountain in the world, coming-to  earth again twenty-five miles away  from the starting-point. With such  a gun it would be easy to bombard  Calais from the clills of -Dover or  knock down the cross of St. 1'ai l's  Cathedral fi-gin Windsor Castle; while  twenty-four of such shots would cover the extreme length of Scotland anil  England in something like an hour  Some years .ago an interesting experiment was made at Rhoeburyness  with a 9.2 inch gun in order to ascertain exactly how far it would send  its projectile of 380 lb. It was  found that the shell before cominf- lo  earth   travelled   a shade  over  121 MILES IN 69.(3 SECONDS,  and that it rose, .at tho highest point  of its flight, 2,000 feet,-higher than  the summit of Mont Blanc. From  comparison it will bo seen how vastly superior to this gun is "the f>0-toti  Vickcrs-Maxim with which our battleships arc-armed to-day.  Tt comparcs,~ indeed,"moro than favorably with tho levithan 16 inch gun  mounted on Homer Shoals to defend  NSw  York Harbor.    This gun is but  a few inches under 30' feet long,      it  weighs 126   tons,  and  fires  a projectile     weighing   as  nearly  a3  possible*  a hundredweight oyer a ton, with   a  charge of 1,300 lbs. of powder.   '   It  cost S300,000     to make and mount,  and each firing .means an expenditure  of ��1,000; but its maximum range is  said  to be  four  miles less than that  of our 30-ton guns.    It can be c- fired  onco      in  two      minutes,  so  that an  hour's continuous  firing would     cost  $30,000  in  shells and powder aloiio.  To  test the penetrating power      of  these mammoth  weapons an  interesting experiment was made some   tiiim  ago with a 10 inch calibre gun firing  a projectilo weighing 1,800  lbs.   'Ih'i  target was a composite one of sle-el,  iron, *   timber, granite, and concrete,  and it was found that the shell, lired  at close     range, passed through      a  compound    plate of steel  and      iron  20 inches thick, a second plate of iron 8  inches thick,  20  feet of sqtiarod  oak  timber,  5  foot  of granite,      and  11   feet  of   concrete,  and was      only  brought  to a  full stop after piercing  6 feet of brick behind them all.  ___ 4.
