Serve with strawberry sauce.   '  Buckwheat   Cakes  arc  greatly     improved     by  the     addition    of Indian  - meal.     The  following  is  an  excellent  rule:     One and    one-half cups     buck-  '   wheat,     i     cup  Indian     meal,   1   cup  . sweet milk,   1  cup    water,   2  heaping  'teaspoons baking powder, 1 saltspoon  t Bait.

Nut- Pates���Mix  to ,a  smooth ipaste  ��� with sweet milk, 2 cupa peanuts -put  through' a nut grinder, 1 tablespoon  butter, 1 beaten egg, h teaspoon each'  [of salt and mushroom catsup. Fill  pate shapes.(previously baked empty)  with  tho   mixture   and  brown  in     a  ,. quick 'oven.    Serve at once.  7    "Banana Cream���Whip half a pint of  'double cream,, until stiff, and then stir  | ;s\ into it half an ounce of gelatine dissolved, in half a gill of warm water,  : a little lemon juice, and 1 lb. of skln-  Vnc'd bananas ��� rubbed through  a     hair  *��� sieve with 2 ozs. o'f caster sugar.

Get a nice bunch of parsley,  wash it  thoroughly;     squeeze  very   dry  in     a-  cloth,  and chop finely.    Dissolve half  an    ounce  . of flour, pepp*er and salt.  - Stir both together; take the pan off  tho fire, ancl add slowly half a pint  of cold w.ater. Stir till all boils and  leaves the sides of the pan; add -the  chopped parsley, beat all together,  and serve.    ..

Leave in a warm place for ten minutes; then lift out the bananas and  place th'em in a-'glass dish;  boil     up  " the syrup until very thick and pour  it over the bananas. Serve with  whipped cream.

Stir this gontly  ovcr a moderate  fire for  a quarter of  an Hour, or until a bit of it, dropped  into cold water, is brittle. Directly  tho toffee is boiled to this point it  must be poured off, or it will bo  spoilt. It is an improvement to add  a little grated lemon rind when the  toffee is ljalf  done.  HELPFUL HINTS.  If the h'onds  are rubbed on a stick  of  celery   after '  peeling   onions  the  smell  will  be entirely removed.  Tubs will not warp or crack open  if the precaution is taken to put , a  pail of water into each directly after  use. '  .  Half an hour once a week should be  spent in manicuring tho nails if the  hands arc to have a well-cared appearance. f ���  " Save all th'e egg shells, and when  broken up finely they will be found  useful for removing stains, etc., from  enamelled saucepans.                   '  All saucepans and 'kettles should  be turned upside; down when not in  use. Let the saucepan project a little over tho edge of its shelf to admit air.  When the hands Have become soft  and shrunken by using soda and hot  water, rub them with common salt,  and it will help to make them smooth  again.  Chloride of ��� lime should bo ' used  ^about the h'ouso all the summer, and  in the out-buildings also. , It will  drive" rats from tho cellar at any timo  of the year.  Buttermilk is excellent for ' cleaning  sponges. Steep the sponge in milk  for somo hours, then squeeze it out,  and wash it in cold w.ater. Lemon  juico is also good.  For biliousness tho first thing to  do is to get rid of tho excess of  waste material in tho blood. For this  purpose nothing is better'than a Seid-  litz powder taken "before breatiast.  During hot weather dishclothcs and  kitchen cloths arc apt to turn sour  and smell disagreeably. A few 'drops  of ammonia in the rinsing water'will  act lilce magic in sweetening them.  When choosing a carpet for a small  room always select a small pattern,  or plain colors. See that tho wall  paoer tones with the carpet, and the  room will seem bigger than it really  is.  Turpentine mixed with linseed oil  in the proportion of two parts of oil  to one of turpentine m.akes *a most  excellent polish for furniture. Apply  very little of this to tho surface, and  polish with, plenty of clean cloths.  To clean the coffee pot fill it with  water, put in a p'incli "of borax and a  pieco^ of hard soap, and' set on t the  stove, , leaving it> boil for' half an  hour. It will be as bright as new'  and should" be submitted " to this'  treatment  frequently.  For a shampoo mixture. Dissolve  two tablespoonfuls of pure soft so.ap  (bought of a chemist) in half* a pint  of hot water. When cold, add the  juice of one' .lemon and a few drops  of essence of lavender. Keep this  tightly corked for uso.  To wash windows easily add a few  drops of kerosene or paraffin to some  clean hot water (as hot as can be  used). Tho kerosene evaporates, carrying the moisture with it, and the  glass is cleansed with half tho usual  trouble and looKs brighter.  When cleaning a room in the ordinary way don't forget that ��� tho pictures need dusting at the back and  edges. Dusty rims round ornaments  proclaim a careless housekeeper. The  best plan is to have the first duster  slightly damp, and finish off with a  dry one. Wring out th'e duster in a  bucket  of warm water  constantly.  than soap and clean water is necaB-  sary to clean an ostrich tip in a. thoroughly scientific fashion. 1/ tho work  is carefully done, the plume will stand  an infinite number 'of "shampooings"  without showing the least signs of  wear.    Here is the simple process:  Make a lather with worm water and  a good white soap. Fill a bowl with  this and dip the plume into it. When  it is thoroughly staturated draw the  tip through the fingers. Repeat a  number of times if the feather is much  soiled. ' ,  Now rinse thoroughly in clear water, making sure that no vestige oi  soap remains. Put on a white apron or cover the knees with a clean  towel and gently pat the plume with  the hands, until dry. Curl with a  blunt knife. ' ,  ��� Or steam th'e plume over the hot  water kettle and dry out in the heat  of tho stove, when it will of jits own  accord attain a certain degree of fluf-  finess.  DYSPEPSIA ��� CURED.  A  He  Severe Sufferer Tells How  Overcame1 the  Trouble.  "Not only do I not hesitate to   declare the benefit I have received from  Dr. Williams'  Pink   Pills,   but I feel  it my duty to do  so."      These    arc  the words which Mr. Edward Lavoie,  ,of St .Jerome, Que., lately addressed  to the editor  of L'Avenir du   Nord,  when relating th'e story of his   cure.  Mr.' Lavoie    is   well    known in     St.  Jerome,     and  what he says     carries  weight among  those  who ^know  him.  For    a considerable' time ho was    a  great sufferer from dyspepsia,    which  caused severe headaches, pains in the  stomach      and      sometimes     nausea.  Sometimes  he     felt     as. though*    he  would ���  suffocate,    he would    become  dizzy  ,and experienced ringing noisos  in tho    ears.    ' His appetito'  became  poor,  and his  general health  so  bad  that    he found it  almost  impossible  to "work, and when tho headaches attacked   , him    he had to  quit    work.  For six months,  he says,  ho suffered  both    physically and mentally   moro  than can'be imagined.      During   this,  timo    h'o took medicine from several  doctors,    but    found no help.     Then  one day he'read of the cure of a similar case through.the use of Dr. Williams' I1 ink Pills, and decided to try  them. He'used theepills for a couple  of months, and they have made .him  feel    like a new person.      He is   no  longer  troubled  with   any  of  the  old  symptoms,  and  says he can now  go  about his work*' as though he never  had dyspepsia.-    '  Tho digestive "organs���like all the  other organs of the body���get their  strength and nourishment from the  Mood. t Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually make new blood./ This new  blood strengthens tho stomach, stimulates the liver, regulates tho bowels and-sets the whole digestive system in a healthy, vigorous ,' state.  Good blood is tho true secret of  good health. That is why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills always bring good  health to those who use them. You  can get those pills from your medicine dealer or by mail at 50 cents a  box or six boxes for $2.50 by writing Tho Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,  Brockvillo Ont.  similarly adorning images and paintings in churches. Later, on these metallic aureoles came to bo regarded as  sacred emblems themsolves, and'as absolutely essential to the well-being pt  tho saint or martyr represented. But  pictures and'images of holy, persons  were ,many and'cheap, and'-brass ha-  los were rare and costly. i ��� *  Consequently, the horse-^hoe got to  be pretty generally utilized as an easily available substitute, and to/it the  devout Italians transferred,, in course  of time ��� the superstitious reverence  which they had formerly bestowed upon the genuine 'halo. M '  ��� In the Caucasus the peasantry hallow the Horse-shoe, because, so -they  say, it was through ono, that their  ancestors first" learnt the use of ii-on.  Long ago-^runs the legend��� some,-' of  the poor mountain folic found an iron  shoo that had bcen"cast accidentally  from a Cossack chieftain's'' stallion.  Never having seen such a thing before, they, after having first vainly  attempted-to eat it', tried to soften it  by boiling it in water. Then they  roasted it, and afterwards beat it  with stones. While thus engaged,.tho  Evil One,' who Had been watching  them,  asked  them   suddenly  WHAT THEY WERE DOING.  CLEANING FEATHERS.  Owing to the frequency with which  it is turned, over to the professional  cleaner, a white or pale-tinted plume  becomes something of a luxury.  If the feminine contingent only realized * how easily these pretty ornaments can be cleaned at home, quite  a little saving toward tho end of the  year would result.

In thousands of cases they have  cured where physicians and ordinary  medicines Have failed. This is the  test by which they have been proven.  Here is a, letter we havo just re-  cei.ed.from  Prin:o  Edward  Island.  Miss Kate Doyle, lot 1, postofflco,  P. B. I., states:���"About three years  ago my father was seized with a severe form of. kidney disease, which  caused liim much suffering, as well as  anxiety lest the ailment should become chronic or prove*fatal. Wc immediately obtained Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills and he began at once  to improve under this treatment, the  symptoms      gradually     disappearing,  until he became quite well again.  Since then wc always keep these pills  in the house for use in the coso of  sicl-ncss of this Rind.  "For same timo I suffered from  pains in' the small of tho back and  accompanying ills, and though I was  treated by a doctor at considerable  expense, I could obtain no lasting  benefit /until I used Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, which seemed to be'  exactly suited to ray ailment. Father  and I are greatly pleased with the  excellent medicine and wish to recommend it to others."

Horse      Shoe  Saved Ireland���Cossacks Were Taught   Iron  By It.  Ever since h'orse-shoes havo boon  horse-shoes- they have been accounted  lucky emblems by all peoples, races,  and nations, that have been acquainted with their use. This much is certain. But why it should be so it is  hard to determine, since almost everywhere a different reason is given  for cherishing the  belief.  Tl;e Cingalese, for instance, say  they nail them up over their doors as  a charm against evil spirits, because  of tlio close resemblance that exists  between its share and; the arched  body of tho sacred snake, Nagendra,  one of their principal deities.  As'c a Turkish Mohammedan for  information on tho subject, and ho  will tell you that it is because thoy  arc in form like to a crescent, the  sacrccf emblem of Islam.  A Polish Jew will explain that at  tho Passover, the blood sprinkled upon tho lintel "and door-posts, in the  manner directed by their ritual, forms  tho chief points of nn arch. ITuncc,  obviously, the value of arch-shaped  talismans, such' as horse-shoes are.  The stolid and unimaginative Hussion peasant, on the other hand,  maintains that the luck associated  with the horse-shoe is duo chiefly to  Ihe metal, irrespective of its shape,  Iron being traditionally a ch'arm  wherewith to nullify the malevolent  designs of evil spirits and goblins.  In other words, according to his  view of th'o matter, a horsc-shoc is  simply a piece of iron of graceful  shape and convenient form, ��� commonly pierced with' seven nail-holes (a  mystic number), and therefore an altogether suitable talisman to be affixed to the door of dwelling or stable  in conformity ' with n venerable cus-  ton sanctioned  BY CENTURIES OF USAGE.  In Italy, in the Middle Ages, if; became  customary  to  place  a  crescent-  shaped hood or brass uvon the heads  tho |of tho statutes of saints exposed     in.  on   the o;-en,  as .a protection from-snow  'ond rain,    Hence arose tho practice of 'cd ovcr  Though startled, tho men thought  it best to put-onva bold front, " so  replied that they were making a  hammer to beat him (Satan) with. '  '"But" cried Satan, "you liave no  sand." --,,;.  So His hearers then understood that  sand was essential for the use of,Iron-'  workers, and thus began tho manufacture- in tho Caucasus of iron, implements.  Very different is tho story by which'  tho Irishman seeks , to account for'  his liking for th'o same talismanic  symbol.  The name "Irinlnnd" or "Ireland,"  ho will tell you. originated as follows: ��� ,  The wliole island was once submerged in'the sea, 'out' of which it only  rose onco in seven years, and then  only for a very short time. Many  attempts had been mado to break the  spoil and induce the country to remain permanently above th'o waters,  but all wore vain, until ono day a  daring adventurer throw a -horse-shoe  from a boat on to the topmost peak  of the Wicklow Mountains, just- as  they were disappearing benoath the  waves. - - ���   '  Then, at last, , was tho banc re-,  moved. , Tho Emerald - Isle began  forthwith to,rise again from the ocean  depths into which it had just ,,sunk.  And it has been dry land���more or  less���over since.  Such is the story as told by the  folk-lore-loving peasantry of the west;  but many authorities on Irish legendary lore insist that tho real reason  of the always'devout Irishman's belief in the beneficent powers of .the  emblem in question lies in the fact  of the horse and the as3 .having been  in the stable where Christ was born,  and hence being ever more blessed animals.  INtENCLAND,  up to within comparatively recent  times, horse-shoes were extensively  used almost everywhere as anti-witch  charms; and tho custom is not even  yet an extinct one. tNo witch, it  used to be said, could enter a building over tho door of which a horse-  hoe���or, better . still, three . horseshoes���had boon affixed, prongs downwards.  The origin of this particular belief  is referable to tho old legend of St.  Dunstan. This versatile English ecclesiastic was a skilled farrier, and  ono day. while at work In his forge  the Evil Ono entered in- disguise and  requested Dunstan to shoe his "single  hoof." Tho Saint, although ho at  onco recognized his malign customer,  acceded, but caused him so much pain  during the operation that Satan begged him to desist. This Dunstan  did, but only after he had made the  Evil One promise that neither he, nor  any of the lesser evil spirits, his servants, would ever molest tho inmatos  of a house where a^ horsc-shoc was  displayed.  Tn Thuringia horse-shoos arc used  for a like purpose, and a similar  legend is toldHo account for tho custom, but the fastidiousness of these  forest-bred folk is not content with  an ordinary shoe. In order to serve  as a talisman it must bo. specially  forged on St. John's Eve by a young  bachelor of wholesome life and unblemished character.  The tenacity of somo of tlie customs that cling round tho horse-shoe  is no less remarkable than their nature and their origin.  For more than five hundred years  the inhabitants of Horse-shoe Corner,  Lancaster, nailed a new shoo ovary  se^en years on a certain spot in tiic  MIDDLE OF THE STREET.  In Pliny's timo horse-shoos were  used in the Camoania to secure tho  inmates of tho dwellings from the  visitations of nocturnal prowling spirits, exactly as they are to-day.  Similarily, tho Scandinavians make  use of the emblem everywhere as a  bringer of. good lucR "because," thoy  say,  "it is Woden's will."  This points to an origin; dating before their conversion to Christianity,  Woden being, of .-course,' tlie all-powerful deity of the ancient Northern  peoples, corresponding with tho Greek  Zeus and th'o Roman Jupiter.  Among the wild Arabs of tlie central Arabian deserts a cast horse-  shoo is preserved in a little goat-  akin bag,, together with seven nails,  and it is worn round the neclc as a  ch'arm when put of..doors, or stispond-  the    tent    door while rest-  '   NATURE'S   CUBE  FOR  CHILDREN.

Then  I began to study my own case     nnd  learned  of the  diet recommended     by  the Postum Cereal Co., so 1 gave up  coffee, pork and  all greasy foods and  began     using    Postum    Pood  Coffee.

That there is dangei totheKuro-  pcan - situation is evident, n/rbe  seizure of British and German  ships in tlicv Red Sea is no sligtit  offence, and unless Russia" a polo-"  gises, serious complications may  ,ensue.

'Both  'the governments ol" England,'and  Germany will demand immediate  explanation, which,- if not satisfactory, will probably mean war. The  Mediterranean fleet has already left  for Alexandria, and the Biitish  cruisei Terrible .has sailed for Suez  for the purpose of pjotecting. Gteat  Britain's interests.

Sunday' School Picnic.  , The members of the Presbyteiian  Sunday School held their annual  picnic last Tuesday at Pike River.  Quite a number' of parents and  friends accompanied the children  on the trip.  The Scotia left Atlin at 10 a. m.,  loaded down with passengers and  well filled picnic baskets." On arriving at Pike River, luncheon was  served,'and the picniceis went for a  ramble in the woods. At 3 p. m.  the Scotia left for Goat Island, and  landed in one of the most picturesque spots on the Lake. There,  races and games'were indulged in  by the children and many of the  older-ones went back, to childhood  days.,' 'The race of the day was for  bald-headed men,���Mr. j.

"Oh! Miss  Arcdwny," sho replied; "they nrc not  love-letters. You sec, we arc not  like other people���" here she broke  oil and colored, as Claude loolccd up.  She would have turned the subject,  feeling that .she had 'already said  more than was becoming of her own  concerns, but that something in that  swift, electric glanco was like 'a challenge and aroused her. "We arc  more like brother and sister," sho  continued,   with  gravity;   "but     wh'yr  ,  should I- weary you  with my affairs,  .   Miss Medway?"  "Oh,  I like to  hear,  please go  on"  was  the "inevitable girlish rejoinder.  "We wei-e brought up together liko  brother and sister," she continued;  "wo were not like people who find  ��ach other o*ut bit by bit,- and are  unread romances to each-.other."  "Then how did you become' engag-  ca?" asked Ethel.  "My  parents'   had    always   wished  it; and when-my dear father was dy  ' ing he joined our hands; and that,"  she added, looking up after a long,  breathless pause and meeting ' Claude  ' ' Medway's dilated gaze with a sort of  defiance, "makes it so very solemn  and binding."    <  "I don't think so,'.' returned Ethel,  disgusted  at   the    want  of romantic  interest   in     the   narrative;     "people  ought to fall in love and be propos-  " ed  to,  and   refuse a    little  at    first  just  to  bring  the  other  one  on,    before they ai-e married.      If papa told  me  to marry anybody I should    instantly    hate   him,   and  run     away  with somebody else.   Why, people never fall in lovo with the'people they  are told to,  do they Claude?"  "Not  such naughty  girls  as you,"  /  he  replied,-touched "by  the    thought  that   there   could    be none  of these  youthful  experiences   for  that     poor  .child,   and willing to  turn a subject  which  had  become   embarrassing   to  Jessie;   '.'wc shall know  how to deal  with  you when  an  ineligible    makes  liis   appearance,    just  order  you     to  _  have  him,  Miss Wilful."  FTe knew  when th'e" father  died,  ho  knew when Philip went out to India,  he     knew     Jessie's    age,   the   whole  -stor ywas clear to him,   and particu-  Jarly  her     intention     in   proclaiming  " tlie- special  solemnity  of  her engagement;  his eyes grow softly  brilliant,  a  smile played over his face,     which  seemed  instinct  with     triumph     and  . happiness; even Ethel    wondered    at  A the, unusual beauty of her handsome  -brother.  Jessie was  thankful  for  the  timely  interruption  of  tea..     She   had  lived  among   simple outspoken people,    and  was   herself of a noble simplicity    of  tliought and speech, but she had the  instinctive  lady's  dower  of reticence,  and shrank from    the publicity    she  had  thought it necessary to  give to  her     relations     with     Philip.      "So  ^cry solemn and    binding,"  she    repealed  to  herself    while  busy     with  the  tea-cups.      Sho  lived in  thought  again   in   that   death-dod   scene,    felt  '   the    clasp of    the    tremulous,  dying  hands  tighten and  then  slacken upon  hers    and    Philip's;  as her    father's  hands grew  cold  and  nerveless,     sho  remembered'  Philip's     grasp  growing  warmer and firmer, and she felt   herself pass from the keeping of one to  that  of the  other.  There was a solemn, prayerful look  on her face, that gave a deeper  charm to her beauty, when she handed Captain Medway his tea, avoiding his gaze; a feeling of victorious  strength lifted her above the thrill  which the chance touching of their  fingers  sent  through   them.  The rain gradually ceased, and a  flood of blinding glory poured in  through the bay window at the other end of the gallery, and streamed  slantly through the long gallery,  touching <them with a softened radiance as it reached thorn. The upper portion of tlie window was filled with .stained glass, chiefly showing armorial bearings, tho Medway  quartorings shed rays of gules, or,  ���and azure upon Jessie's dross and  moved     upon her hands. Outside,  tho park was a    living   emerald    of  sun-stccped verdure,  birds  were singing    iti   the    fragrance   of    the rain-  nwakened   earth,     all    .seemed    pure,  bCciutiful,   and    joyous     within    and  without in the lovely summer    evening.      Joy so pure as well  as    deep  h'ad  never before  been  Claude's,    the  memory of his past life and especially his first thoughts of Jessie,  whoso  beauty  and     purity had   so   changed  and elevated him, filled him with rc-  moj-s-c;  what did he owe, to that gentle  and   gracious   creature   who     had  discovered his soul  to him,  and who  would give him a life of purest happiness?      The  precious  moments  flew  while he sat in Elysium alone    with  tho   two   beings  most  dear  to     him,  watching  Jessie's   tender   ways   with  Ethel     and      the    girl's   affectionate  though     selfish'   clinging  to   her;     it  seemed/    that    a    deeper     tenderness  came    into    Jessie's    voice and eyes  when  she spoke   to  Ethel,   the thrilling thought came    to him tliat    she  must love her, as indeed she did with  a pwe lovo made up of pity and an  association of which perhaps she was  unconscious.  Sitting there th the beautiful evening glory,  beneath his own ancestral  roof  upon  the  lino  full-leaved     trees  glowing in the fresh sunshine, listening    to    the    pure    tones of Jessie's  voice and entranced by her youthful  and touching beauty, ho wondered at  himself.        What     different  pleasures  and  interests  would  now   be his     in-  tho simple yet full  and dignified  life  he would hereafter lead.      Bow stale  and   unprofitable   all   previous   pleasures and    dissipation    seemed;  there  were incidents in his life  for     which  he blushed for the first' time;  present  associates  the thought of which filled him with disgust.     All that poets  said  of love was true.      lTo thought  with' a    sort   of    self-pity how litto  pure human affection there had been  in  his   lot   till  now.    ' It   was     with  the selfish love of    tho utterly helpless that    Ethel    clung to him,     another    sister    had'died- in childhood,  leaving   a   sorrowful, memory;    Lady  Gertrude had fondled him over much  in infancy, and when he ceased to be  a    baby,     repulsed  him.      lie might  not throw his arms around'her' neck  because he rumpled her hair; he must  not  come   too near,  she  didn't     liko  boys treading on her dress and ��� pulling her about, their hands were'never clean.      And when'he grew   up,  a  curled     darling,     an     ornamental  as  wcl las useful   social- appendage,    ho  knew too well what value to put upon his mother's appreciation of him.  There   was   instinctive   affection     between    himself    and'his father     and  brothers,   but    no     tenderness.      Yet  but a month or so'since''.he     would  have laughed    at tho  idea  that    he  needed tenderness; married  bliss <��� was  a thing to smile at;  conjugal virtue,  though respectable, a thing too rare,  at least    on    the one' side,  to enter  seriously into an estimate of life.  Once Jessie caught his rapegaze as  he thought these thoughts, < nnd " it  flashed-upon her that he had a look  of Philip, something less than tho  moulding of a feature, something  more than a passing express. Sho  glanced from, him to a picture on  the, wall of a young. cavalier with  plumed hat and flowing curls, who  bad' fallen in tho Civil'War. lie  turned, following her gaze.,  , "You are interested in Sir Philip?"  he a^ked:  "you often look at him."  "He reminds ' mc a little of my  broth���of Captain Randal," she replied.  "It is curious; but wc . have  thought so,  too."  "But he is considered much more  like you, Claude," Ethel added; "my  brother was dressed as Sir Philip  for a fancy ball, Jessie.'.'  After tea Jessie,read aloud from  tho grand romance which has'set so  many.hearts boating and charmed so  many minds in such different ages;  those who first dreamed it arc dust,  and so arc those who earliest ' felt  its glamour: all tho successive moulders and compilers have been a&ITcs  for centuries, and yet' to-day its  charm is fesh and irresistible as ever.  Ethel soon slept, lulled by the  sweet voice.  Tho golden glory, "with its crown  of armorial jewel, fell full upon Jessie, sitting sidewise close to the  sleeping girl; , it fell upon Claude,  who was facing' her on the other side  of his sister, on an antique, cross-  legged oaken seat, his head slightly  bowed against tlfe hand which shaded his eyes, his elbow resting on his  knee, in a negligent attitude, suited  to a suppliant or courtier. But  shadowed as his eyes were, there was  no mistaking his look;' and ho was so  absorbed that he did not perceive the  approach of an onlooker, whose light  footsteps were unheard on the thick-  pi led  carpet.  The new-comer stood an'd silently  studied the scene; the slcoping girl,  the reader and the listener, her faco  was touched with' scorn and fear,  hatred nnd love, she was breathless  and motionless; while Jessie, conscious of Claude's furtively adoring  gaze and fearing to pause or lift  her eyes lest sho should meet it, rend  in a thrilling voice, "And there is  no knight living that ought to give  unto God so great thanks as ye; for  he hath given unto you beauty,  .sccmlines.s. nnd great strength', above  all other knights "  "How very appropriate!" broke in  tho now-comer, with cleat and cutting emphasis, and Jessie, looking up,  saw Clara Lonsdale standing dark  against the flood of dazzling light,  with a curling lip, and a fire of dark-  passion in her eyes.  It was but a moment, during which  tho "long sunbeams slanted away,  leaving that part of the 'gallery in  chill grayness, before Miss Lonsdale  turned with 'tho faintest droop of  the eyelids and Captain Medway's  features lost their stern rigidity in  something like atgrim satisfaction.  Jessie's only memory of that scene  was the glance .Clara had thrown upon- hor, after thoso few words between the cousins, a glance of blended foar, hatred, and scorn, and of  the emotion in Claude's faco.  Sho understood too well what it all  meant; one of the white moss-roses  was in her dress; he,had handed it to  hor at his, sister's ncsare; sho took it  out when she reached home, aiid  looked at it long. . She carried it  into tho kitchen, where a wood-fire  was burning low on tho hearth, and  placing it in the heart of the rod  embers, watched till it was consumed.     It seemed  like killing a child.  There ' Sarah found her drooping'  somo minutes after when thc_ .dusk  was falling.  A few days after Miss Lonsdale's  unexpected arrival, Jessie received a  notu, bidding her come to the Court,  an honor which she declined, upon  which Clara appeared at Redwoods.  ,lcsGio was in the garden gathering  fruit for thoso endless pots of jam  which Cousin Jane delighted to  mako, and > thither Miss Lonsdale  penetrated without invitation, to  Jessie's  secret   indignation.  "Miss Meade," she said, "will you  have the goodness to walk through  the plantations'-with me? I cannot  toll you-my errand here."  Sho could say "will you have the  goodness?" so as to convoy the impression of "you will refuse on your  peril;" tho fascination which sho had"  exercised upon Jessie, ��� lessened  though it w,ns sinco she had discovered that Clara Lonsdale was not  only capricious but rude, had always  contained an element of fear, nnd be-;  twoen this fear and the tenderness  sho still lolt for the lonely woman,  she yielded  nnd  followed   her.  "Jessie," Miss Lonsdale said when  they,had .crossed the intervening  fields and reached the plantation,  "you know that you havo boon dear  to mc, that 1 have' treated you as a  friend."  "You havo been very kind," she  replied, ���* "nnd I shall always be  grateful. ��� But you aro tired of mc,  and have often been both' unkind and  rude of late. I was a toy to amuse  you "when you when you were dull,  and now, that    the paint has . worn  off me "  "Nonsense, why, if tired of you,  have I taken all this trpublc to see  you? Come, sit on 'these faggots  and talk ratioually. You expect too  much. You ought to know that I  have your best interests 'at heart,"  sho  said,   drawing  the   slender  figure  CHAPTER XX.  Claude thrown off his balance for  a moment, uttered a faint exclamation, then he rose and turned to receive his cousin with a gra-i e smile.  "This is an unexpected pleasure,"  he said, offering his hand, which sho  did not take. ".Have you only just  arrived?"  "1 ought to apologize," she replied, .with infinite scorn, "for breaking in upon so delightful a moment.  But I was told you were alono with  your sister."  Ifo met her gaze with' a. level direct  glance that wus like tho cutting of  a, sword.  caressingly toward her.  Jessie took a scat as desired, and  after various allusions which she declined ��� to understand, Clara said,  with more plainness, -'Lords ol Burleigh are ��� all very well in poetry,  but in real life thoy simply don't exist.,"  "Probably not; ono does not expect everyday life to be a poem,"  Jessie replied, with quiet indifference,  ns sho rose. "And now, dear 'Miss  Lonsdale, I really    must sav    good-  by "  "Nonsense, child, sit down," Clara  returned, a flash of green light coming to her eyes as sho detained her  with no gentle hand. "You cither  do not or will not sec your danger.  A.S you say, it was I who brought  you to that house and I should indeed be grieved if harm come to you  there."  Pray don't distress yourself," sho  said, with burning checks, "no harm,  has ever come to me at Marweli.  Why should it? No one in that house  but yourself has over shown mc anything but kindness "  "Kindness!" echoed ' Clara in an  accent that burned into Jessie like  corrosive acid, "kindness from a  man like Claude Medway to a girl  liko you! Why, ho is one of tho  fastest men of his sot! Jessie, such  mon havo no mercy on girls in your  position. We who live in the world  know these things."  "Then I am sorry for you." cried  Jessie, rising onco more and drawing her shawl round her; "and I am  sorry if such things arc truo. And  1 do not believe any ill of tho gentleman to whom you allude. And it  is not oT the smallest consequence  whether 1 do or not. .He has never  said a word to mo that the whole  world might not hear. I must really  go; it is late."  "X hate her," Clara said, stopping  nt tho plantation fence, on her home-  >vard way, resting her ami upon the  rail while she looked with nsightlcss  glance over the beautiful Marweli  woods. "X think 1 never haled any  one so much. I hate hor beauty,  her intelligence, her graceful ways.  What right have such as sho to  graceful ways, ensnaring men's  hearts? But ho has said nothing;  thank Wcaven for that, oh, thank  Heaven! That girl cannot lie:- Her  face cannot lie. And she loves him,  tho bnby-faced fool. And Heaven  only knows what folly a man so infatuated may commit. Ho might  oven marry hor. Sho must bo got  away from this place. Ono of them  must bo removed."  Jessie believed no harm "of Claude  Medway, and was indignant at the  aspersion ca.'jt upon him. To her he  was a heroic, chivalrous figure, as  different from tho real Claude Mod-  way as the latter was from the heartless rake Clara had suggested. To  figure perfectly-as a hero it is necessary to  bo slandered a little.  Though' lie was not angelic; or  even heroic, there were good  thoughts  in   Claude   Medway's    heart  These thoughts made him happy;  they gave him courage to do what  he had long boon-nerving himself to  do���make a confes's/on, ono that  must'como' sooner or later, to his  father.  So the very next day Sir Arthur  heard with tribulations and dismay,  not tho mournful words, "Father, I  havo.' sinned," but those still more  dreadful to some paternal ' cars,  "Father,  I am in debt."   ,  It was tho first time that tho offence had' been of such magnitude,  and with what Sin Arthur deemed so  little excuse, for this was no debt  incurred by indulging his own pleasures.  "I must live quietly for somo,  time," he added, to his .father's in-  tenso surprise, since ho had never  before manifested any such intention. "I must sell the hunters���a  pity, too; thoso'two young ones at  th'o trainers' aie turning out so  well, no end of money in them. I  don't want to sell out if I can possibly  pull   through   without."  "Far better sell out than .give up  hunting. Do. you suppose all these  small squires and farmers will voto  for a man who doesn't hunt, or otherwise 0 make himself pleasant an'd  popular?" cried Sir Arthur. "Upon  my soul, sir, this is pleasing intelligence, with my affairs iir.,such' a condition. At you rage .to. put your  namo to bills for such a follow. You  must havo known that 'ho could nov-  ert meet them." '   ���  '.'The*poor beggar was so confoundedly  hard  up." ���  "Beggar,'indeed! Such men aro indeed beggars.. Thoy arc always  hard up. How can a man be otherwise if he lives at,the rate of three  thousand a year, when ho has but  threo hundred.'" ,     '  Clau'do murmured something about  expectations.  -'���"Which ho throws to tho winds by  marrying a barmaid, and making his  uncle  cut  him  off  with  a  shilling."  "Not a barmaid, sir, a governess,  a lady by birth,  a very pretty    and  charming  girl "  "Barmaid or governess, it is all  tho same: "the girl had not a penny,"  cried Sir Arthur, with irritation;  "neither-beauty nor charm pay butcher's bills, 'much less wine merchant  and Bond Street tailors. "What I  cannot conceive is that you should  have done tho thing twice," continued Sir Arthur, indignantly. "A  man may- make a fool of himself  once���but this second bill seems a  dcliberato act���a���upon my soul,  Claude,   it is  too much."  "Of course, it was foolish, but, \ry  George! sir, I think you would havo  done the same," . he replied.- "You  see the poor devil was' to be sold up  and utterly done for, 'and his pretty  wife came and cried to me, and���and  brought her baby,'and,���and���well !  what can a'man do in such a case?"  "I know what a soft-hearted fool  fin do." he returned, half .laughing;  "every time a pretty "woman cries,  or has a baby, I suppose my timber  is to be cut down, and my land  mortgaged. I hoped you would -set-,  tic down* and marry, and take your  proper position in tho country. And  here I am with Jim to send to Oxford, and Jack's commission to buy,  and with Hugh vowing that an attache must live beyond his present  allowance, and what with bad times  the state of the country, losses here  and losses there���perhaps it is* well  that this place is not entailed like  the      Suffolk    property,      though    I  should be sorry to soil Marweli "  "Soil Marweli 1" cried Claude;  "surely you cannot be serious." His  last chance of breaking tho subject  of marrying  Jessie was  gone now.  "I am sorry to say," continued his  father, "that I am in but too ��� sad  earnest"���lie paused, and reflected  awhile, and the in turn mado his confession, ono that, like his son, ho  had long brooded over, but feared to  make; a story of growing'expenses  and diminished income, of bad times,  remitted rents and unfortunate " investments, culminating in Inrgc purchase of shares in a phantom company,  the    promoters  of which    had  fiESHIPS AS -TAMETSA  EXPERIMENTS WITJK BIG GUMS -  AND TORPEDOES.

Two years ago  the Admiralty,  bo-'  ing anxious  to  rcalizo  tho effect - of  big shells loaded with lyddite,in ac- ;  tual. warfaio,   ordered   that   the  Bcl-  lcislc,"  an     old    coast  defence     ram,  should   bo   moored   out  near     Sclsoy  Bill and fired at by tho Majestic. ,A��  for  her     crow,     which  was  formerly  284 officers- and men, tlicso wcro   re- .  presented     by-a       largo    number  of\  wooden dummies.

"There is but one hope," Sir Arthur said at the conclusion of this  melancholy narrative, "a most natural and pleasing aope, and one that  1 had expected you would yourself  before this have realized, and that  is your  marriage."  "My marriage!" repeated tlie unfortunate young man while all tho  lovely aurora hues of his new and  beautiful hopes faded away Irom tho  horizon of h*if�� life, "my "marriage!'"  "You know your own affairs best,"  Sir Arthur continued, "but to me it  ,':ce;ns (hat the thing lias boon too  long about.

Tho    Bellcisle,  when   struck  by    a   full-si/.ed    Whitehead etorpedo,  sank almost at once, in spite of having' been specially    strengthened     to  boar  tho  shock. " ,  THE WAR BALLOON  was found most useful in South Af-  rica, and it is probable that a good j;  dual more, will be seen of it before  the present war between Japan and  Russia is finished. At Steinfeld,' in  Austria, tho Austrian artillery have  been using a war balloon as target.  Tho balloon was anchored at a  height^of 7,500 feet, tho gunners not  being informed of the range. How  difficult such an object is to hit at  such a height may bo judged by tho  fact that it took twenty-two rounds  to get the range, and it was not- until the sixty-fourth shot that tho  balloon was hit, and then only  slightly.  . The Germans have also tried their  guns at a balloon, but in this case  their target was less than 1,000 ft.  in tho air. Firing from a distance!  of about two and' a balf miles tha  seventeenth shell exploded close ta ���  tho ground.  Perhaps -the most startling experi*  monts ever tried with guns wera  those which took place at Brest in  August last. Instead of taking nif.  old ^battleship like the Bellcisle an<  putting dummies on board, thl  French actually fired shell at a real  battleship - ���.  WITH TIER CREW. ON'BOARD!'" ,  Tho ship chosen was tlio fS'iffi.-u i  big turret battleship. It was thl  turret which French naval authorities wcro specially anxious to tost.  They wanted to find out whether tha  shock produced by tho impact of ii  shell on the, outer wall of the turret  would kill or injure tho'men inside.  Tho "crow of tho SulTren were sen)  below, anJji some sheep were penned  insido the turret. Then the Masscnii  drew off to 2,000 yards, distance <S  and fired heavy shell at tho turret.  :'lio shells were not explosive ones���  troy wore filled with sand instead ol  po vdcr. Ju spite of every precaution an accident occurred. Tho third  Fholl burst, nnd the officers who were  standing on Iho bridge near the after end of the ship narrowly escaped  being hit b.v splinters. The oxper- /t  iment, however, proved successful in  ono way, for the sheep weie afterwards found   to  bo quite  unharmed.  Much curiosity was evinced, when  submarines first came into existence,  as to whether they or their occupants would be able to withstand  the shock of torpedoes or mines fired  in their vicinity. The French have  lately settled thut question also.  Thoy anchored a submarine under  water in Cherbourg Harbor and fired  torpedoes at various distances from  it, eventually coming as close as  thirty yards. No damage was flono  at nil, and, though the occupants of  tho submarine distinctly felt tho dull  shock of tho explosions and tho in- <]  crenso of air pressure, thoy ;wcrp  none of them in any way tlio ' worse  for   their strange experience, .  11  <f  11  "Don't you think Mr, Siritin I'arlw  er is very' hard.Vto please?"

And nothing Paul Renshaw could  say would move her liom her resolution She would gladly have given  up hei hard stiugglo lor existence  and accepted his proffered friendship,  but the memoiy of hoi promise made  this impossible.

Paul Renshaw did nothing by  halves, and when Sam Pettit brought  Esther to tho manor at the time  appointed the ex-convict presented  the appearance of an exceedingly  well-dressed and highly icspcctablc  old gentleman.  Sam Pcttit had not been at Donnystown Manor twenty-four hours before ho became firmly convinced that  Paul Renshaw was rapidly losing  his heart    to    Esther AVhitc       "An'  A nice, dootiful -daughter, an' no  mistake. x "Refusing ten thousand a  vcar because I'm alnc," murmured  Sam Pettit, as the -voices died away  in the distance "J'll teach-her tonight.'"
