Tho   25th   September,   1857,   is  ��� a  day that Englishmen  will not forget,  ".''or  eighty-eight  days  the heroic  lit-  tlo English garrison of Lucknotv had  defended their- position against a lea-  ' gucr  of overxvlieliiiiiig numbers,  having  arms,  provisions,  a strong position   in" their  native   hind,   and     all  tho  , resources    of    military training  nnd skill;  tliey hail  maintained their  frail,     unfortined,     unsheltered   position     with  a   courage and constancy  rarely equalled,   tliough  iierhaps  surpassed      by     the    heroic    defence of  Cavvnpore;   and  even  that  of Arnh.  Cawnpore    was "more heroic,     bc-  "   cause conducted under still more desperate and, 'as it proved,  fatal, con-  i  ditions,  behind  even  frailer  intrench-  ments than  those of Lucknow.      For  nt Catvnpore the women had no roof  but the sky, under incessant fire, and  no   couch   but  tho     bare  earth;     the  -garrison     were   only  uphold   by     the  , noblo   hope     of   saving  Lucknow   by  their  prolonged  resistance.  Stimulated, paradoxically as 0 it  may appear, equally by hope and  despair���hope of being relieved by a  force they knew to be m^the neighborhood, despair of meeting more  mercy at tho hands of their enemies,  should they yield, than the tragedy  of Sectaporo led them to expect;  -for an ominous rilence was the sole  intimation they had ever had of tho  fato of Cawnpore; the defenders of  Lucknow rose on ,tho 25th, to go  through'' one more day of terrible,  tragic monotony, and saw the sun  once more turn westward over their  , wearied force diminished now by one-  - third, while the awful iron tempest  still crashed mercilessly upon their  riddled and half-ruined buildings, and  filled  every open spot with dust.  .Night  and- day those  devoted men  had   fought   and   toiled  in  their     un-  ���shelleied ��� intrenchments,  scorched  by  the licrce summer of India,  drenched  by   its   tropical   rains;   they     buried [  , their daily tale of dead,  they nursed  their sick and wounded,  they did all  tho     offices    of   daily  life under - an  incessant  iiro  of musketry,   shot  and  shell,   varied  by  stink-pots  and  car-  ,' cases,   and   only   slackening  a     whilo  from     time   to    time  to -be renewed  with fiercer rigor. -  The sick,  crowded  on  the lowest floor of the hospi-  -tal.  vvero not secure from "-the" occas-  ' ionaJ   round   shots;   the   only    really  safe places  were *, damp,  dark cellars,  in which some of the ladies and children   were     crowded    day and night  rats  dislodge.  Amongst    tho    European    infantry  was Philip Randal,  hardly to be ,re-  oognized as  the smart,  inanely smiling young oilicer  of Jessie's  daguerreotype; his   face  was blackened   by  smoke    and,    stained  with his    own  blood,  his  sword  ran with  that     of  the enemy,  his right hand  was     red  and  his sleeve  boaked  with   it,     his  breath came in short, gasps,  a burning thirst    consumed him,  his  limbs  trembled, and a red mist swam   before his failing eyes; vvith his .parched    lips  , compressed" and   his  teeth  clenched, his  one hope was that   he  might  not  fall  till   he  reached     the  Residency,   if     indeed    it   might    be  reached after  so  terrible  a  struggle.  Ho had the    good    fortune to  serve  under that brave and beautiful soul,  who,   "in  gratitude  for  and   in     admiration of the    brilliant    deeds    of  arms  achieved  by General  Havelock,  cheerfully waived  his  rank  in    favor  of .that    officer"���tendering his military- services   'to    Brigadier-General  Havelock as a volunteer, though officially  appointed to   the command ol  both    Havelock   and the-expedition.  Philip, felt   that   it  was  indeed     an  honor  to serve under two  such  rare  and chivalrous soldiers, in an operation so fi'.Tirght with peril and honor  Outram's forco never forgot,  Cawnpore,    that     word    so     over-weighed  with  agony  and  infamy,   with  heroism and 'cruelty, with pity' and horror.      They had not,  like Havclock'B  Highlanders,' been maddened  by    the  sight of'the tragic Becbcegurh, ankle  deep   in  tho  blood   of- Christian  women and children,  and the yet   more  tragic   well,   over   the   ghaslly     contents of which  tliey had cried aloud;  but   tho   whole  , relieving   force,     as  they  hewed   their  way  through   'the  living wall of dark-faced,  white-dressed    foes under  the concentrated fire  of tho street,  trusted  that they were  saving .the Lucknovv  garrison     from  tho fato  of Cawnpore.  Philip carried Jessie's -da'guerreo-  type, taken at the same time as his  own and the cause of as.much laughter, in his breast -pocket; early , in  the day a musket ball struck and  shattered the outer half of the case?  starring the likeness out of ,all ,.recognition and saving his' life;, later  on he^ received a ."flesh-wound in the  leg and a ball grazed his forehead;  else he was unhurt, though, nearly  exhausted.   ' Suddenly,, 'in ' tlie midst  but furnished with the water for  which, he craved with delirious agony;, food was given him and  he slept a-long sleep, and on wolfing  found himself not much worse for  his wounds, which xvcre not deep,  though their copious blooding had  helped to exhaust him. As for .the  crack on the head from a clubbed  musket, that ' had left only a' surface tenderness and'a certain mental  dulncss behind; and as he looked  round the dark chamber in which he  lay on a purdah, a sort of thin mattress, he knew that the honor of  death on the battle-field had been  "denied him, and that he was - probably destined- to insult and ignominy, and the horrors of death by  torture. Tho cold drops stood on  his brow; on searching his clothes ho  found that no weapon, not oven , a  pen-knife, had been left him. His  inoney was gone, hut the ruby fastened into a portion of his dress had  not been 'discovered; Jessie's shattered  pictare  still remained.  The poor lad rose and fell  on   his  knees,   echoing  the prayer  which'   he  afterward found written upon a wall  in Cawnpore���"Have mercy upon us,  and deliver us not into tho. hands of  our enemies"���a prayer so pitiful   in  the   light     of      after-events.      Many  Englishmen and women in that awful  year turned in extremity to" the sure  and     certain   refuge    of souls,     and  turned    not in    vain.      Trail women  bore   witness    during    the" siege     of  Lucknow   to     the  strength   procured  from    that1|i unfailing source;     brave  men grew  braver.     Philip had often  stood  at handcrips with. Death;,   he  had volunteered in many a desperate  deed before Sebastopol; ho had earned,, though never won, the    .Victoria  Cross,  but  "he was   too  imaginative  to i go under fire without a full sense  'of peril such as had-made him tremble and turn pale on his first experience   at. the  Alma;  and  now,    with  the memory of Cawnpore, Shahjohan-  pore,     and   other    places    of horror  fresh in his mind,  his joints   seemed  loosened  and  his bones  molted    like  wax  within  him.'    Yet  women    and  children  had  borne  worse.      Outside  liis     dark   prison-house   the  infernal  siege-symphony, 'with the addition of  a  terrible  explosion, crashed  on;    he  heard  the ��� sound   of elephant's  drawing        guns.       Jessio     alone      would  mourn him;  he-could not fulfil    the  trust her  dying father had- laid    on  him.      He had taken care to make'a  will leaving his small fortune to her.  Perhaps after all,  she would  be better   without  hiin;   M-t-  ��'ii*,  ko   young  she would easily form fresh ties, and  they  had   already  been  separated   so  long.-    All was at- an end; the strong  beautiful life,  tho perils and  chances  ho loved so well; nameless as he was,  he must-sink, nameless, and unnamed  from  the' sight, of, living men,    from  darkness  ho  must' pass  to  darkness,  ,liko a, spark     seen  a, moment  in . a  night  'sky-and then forever quenched,  liko  the' vvhite  spray  cresting - a.  wayc and-dissipated in the"' waters,,  like'" a    moonbeam    shot through    a  of  all   the fury  and   agony,   a  sweet'  breaking cloud  and  engulfed   in    tho  vision of Jessie, safe in groen and  peaceful England, flashed before him,  and ho heard hei*    voice above    the  among ���  rats   and    mice,    and whero  c- children    rapidly   sickened and died,  nnd  other   children    were  born.

It was then that Englishwomen, seeing their husbands slain  and their helpless children sicken and  dio before them, sharing the men's  hardships, tending tho sick, and  braving the tempest of death, showed that' they too came of heroic  strain and knew how'to endure  Perhaps the most striking characteristic of the wasted garrison manning those battered defences was  their excessive weariness, for, except at Arab and Cawnpore, never  did fighting men have to toil like  these foreigners, tho meanest of  whom had hitherto been accustomed to be tended like princes by the  subject race now besieging them.  The Bun still lay bn'^it upon the  gilded     domes  and graceful ininarcls  it and was content, n company of  wan and wasted women and children  emerging from their damp vaults to  snatch ono breath of air in the slackening of fire after sunset, and wondering among themselves when would  the relieving force come, heard it  with an incredulous, delirious joy,  soon changed to certainty by the  irruption of the Highland soldiers  among them, and the snatching up  of tho children by their heroic deliverers, to bo kissed and cried over  in their noblo joy at having saved  them from the "fato of Cawnpore; it  rolled along the ranks, and heartened up those still riUugglJiig without  it struck terror to the souls of tho  dusky foe, nnd brought new life and  energy to tlio exhausted garrison,  who took it up and prolonged the  grand note till it hushed every other  sound. : In tho rapid failing' of his  pulses,   Philip  hoard   it .and  rejoiced,  springing from the rich foliage of ��� k����wln<? that hin ', Jin... the* life so  tho beautiful city, when the monot-;BWcet ancl Pi'C'cious to his youth,  ony of the. stern siege.music was ]"'" not Sivcn '" vain; he',' too, ut-  broken by continuous firing from the j .tol'GCl vone <��l>Hrint cheer with his  direction of  Cawnpore;  it grow   ever  nearer and louder, till the hearts of  the brave and weary garrison were  thrilled to their depths by the actual  sight of English soldiers hewing  their way through the streets. Those  who saw broke into a cheer that was  taken np and echoed from end to  end of the intrenchnicnt, till the  very sick joined in it, and some even  mustered strength to crawl forth to  ficc the blessed, long-expected sight.  Welcome indeed was that sight, but  terrible, for( the enemy's Tire enfilading the narrow street was very  heavy, and the English fell at every  step.

How long Philip lay among the  slain ho did not know; ho was probably protected from further injury  hy falling into one of the trenches  cut across the road to impodo tho  progress of the ' troops; when he regained  consciousness he  found     him-  night. How different was the going  of Harry Lawrence but three months  since; how different would it be with  Havelock and Outram if they fell,  as, for all he knew, they might already have done each leaving the  memory'of a noble life and stainless  name. Thus Philip lamented his  youth.    " , "  Soon he was led before commanding ofliccrs and questioned, though  on most points tho rebels know far  more than he. Insults and threats  of, torture were sometimes his portion; twice or thrice ho was returned  to his prison and left in that awful  suspense, which was not the least  among the trials Englishmen endured during the ^rebellion. His prison  was changed, he was transported  aimlessly from place ,to place, led  out to execution and covered with  muskets, which after all were not  fired,  or fired in the air.  Often he felt that the bitterness of  death was past, but again and again  the agony was- proioupi-d, nnd he expected no mercy in the end. His  first, acquaintance with the Indian  people was made at -,-in unfortunate  time; in all those dark, fierce, tur-  bancd faces round him, he saw  only fiends of cruelty, heathen  fanatics bound by devilish rites  to all iniquity. As tragedy  after tragedy had reached  his tingling, ears, his horror of those  alien Asiatics had grown, til] he said  things of them and the treatment  due to them which shocked Jessie,  then, and-himself, in after-years. He  did not reflect that tho revolt was,  after all, but a military and partial  outbreak; he had seen nothing of the  intelligence, the culture, the graceful manners of those interesting nnd  picturesque peoples; had -heard nothing ,of the magnificent fidelity and.  noble'.''-'generosity of which many of  them gave proof during the 'Mutiny.:  He did not remember that even the  worst deeds of cruelty wrought -upon conqucrorsj*of an alien race, a  hated religion, and n different civilization, were equalled by what the;  "most polished .people" . in Christeri-  dpm did -to their, own countrymen  and fellow-Christians in the French  Revolution; nor did ���" ho1 know',!' how  dreadful some of the English reprisals had been.  One day he found himself unbound  in an abandoned house on the outskirts of the, city, by the river,  guarded slightly and .carelessly. Presently ho discerned from his '.window  a groat tumult: natives, both sepoys  and civilians, . rushing headlong in  wildest panic amid the thunder of a  furious cannonade and crash of the  explosion of an English mine beneath a largo building held by, the  rebels; and taking advantage ol the  tumuli and confusion and flight of  his    guards.      effected  .   his    escape  self a prisoner, deprived of his sword   through unlocked doors.,   Ho caught I  up a tulwar among the armu the  soldiers had thrown away in -thoir  panic and made.for the river, unheeded in the general flight. Seeing  a boat, ho sprang into it,'pushed off  and floated down stream, for he had  no oars. Ho saw the English , flag  waving still above the battered Residency, which was as fiercely bombarded as ever, though lhe besiegers  had been beaten back from the immediate vicinity of tho position. He  fet himself borne farther and,farther  from them,,,until tho caprice of the  current sent him ashore some miles  away from tho city? beneath a grove  of mangoes, into the shade and shelter'of which he was glad to crawl.  The half-closed wound had ' burst  open again during his flight, he had  been unabla to bind it .properly;  every moment he grew fainter with  loss of blood beneath tho scorching  sun, until he" sank at last, uncon-  cious, just within the grove.  When ho ��� returned to consciousness  dark, 'turbaned faces were bending  over him, restoratives were given  him, his wound was bound up, he  was lifted gently into a'palanquin  well, sheltered from the sun, . and  borne awny, he knew not whither.  Some timo after darkness had fallen, they reached a small town; the  bearers set down the palanquin be-  foro nn arched door -which opened to  admit them, and Philip presently  found himself in a courtyard surrounded by buildings; outside of  which was va verandah lighted by  lamps from within and partially illumined by the Blant rays "of . the  moon  from  without.  A Hindoo lady dressed in bright  silks,-with gold* anklets and bangles,  camo, out to welcome and receive a  tnll and dignified* in on" in tho prime  ol life, whom Philip recognized as  having bound up his wound; men  servants salaamed, thcro was much  talking in an unknown tongue, and  ninny and' strango ceremonies confusing to Philip, - Tho tall Hindoo  having entered the house, soon camo  back with ashes taken' from tho altar  upon his brow;' and turning to Philip, bowed himself to him, touched  his feet ,in token of respect, and bid  him welcome in. the name of God to  tho house of Gossamjee Bhose.  Philip, wondering and 'half dazed,  could only speak some words of  thanks "as he was taken from tho  litter ancl led into the house,  through which the sound of a female  voice, softly singing, was heard.' He  was.conducted to'a room containing  a low bedstead of strange fashion,  and furnished with all.that was necessary for air ancl coolness. Rules--  bhai Ghose, Gossamjce's wife, then  appeared with some pleasant drink,  and -bid him welcome' in words of  which he. could only distinguish a  few.  Dishes of curiosly cooked .food were  then ..brought,   with   warm  water,    a.  native * dress,  including a turban,'in  which  Philip arrayed himself wi.th  a  sort' of dreamy incredulity. ,   Having  washed,  dressed,- and oaten,  ho    lay  down    upon     his    charpoy much refreshed  and half  fearful lest    a clap  of hands  -should be heard and    this  strango Arabian Nights vision should  vanish.      Instead of which,  his kind  host  entered'  surveyed  him  with  benevolent    satisfaction,    saw     to     his  bandages,   and   bid  him  rest,   saying-  that he would come and talk to him  on  the morrow���which he did, bringing   a  native  doctor,   who  examined  and dressed the wound and departed.  "All    that  you   now   require,   sir,"  Gossamjeo said,   "is a few days perfect  rest  and  freedom  from  anxiety.  Tho   doctor thinks    your wound will  then bo quite healed."  "Why are you - so kind to mo, a  stranger and foreigner fighting  against your fellow-countrymen ?"  Philip asked of this veritable Good  Samaritan, when he had told him  his name and military rank,' and  briefly narrated his adventures of  tho last few days.  Gossamjeo Bhose  sat on a   cushion  on the ground, with his arms clasped  round  his  knees,   before  Philip,   who  was sitting on the bedstead.     He" observed that it was a duty to succor  tho unfortunate and to  exercise hospitality,  and  further  that he     loved  tho Feringhees.      The English    Rah,  ho  said,  was just and  merciful,  and  beneath    it   merchants,   like  himself,  could carry on their trades in peace  without    molestation.       Ho    trusted  before long to seo this outbreak sub^  clued,  and  tho En/jlish  rule restored;  for  tho   natives   had  suffered     much  from anarchy in some places, nnd despotism in  others.      Sir Henry Lawrence  was a just man,  and a    lover  of  tho native  races;  his   name     was  mentioned   by many   at  tlio lighting  of lamps,  his death  was a calamity  to  all who   had    known the  boneii-  cenco of his sway;  for his sake,    all  English   were   welcome    to whatever  afcj    Gossamjeo   Bhose     could     give  them.     Outram was a good man, he  had charged his people to "spare the  holy    places."      The  ��� Mohammedan  rule was very different, as tho people  of Oudo found to their cost.   It must  not be? known   that, Gossamjee had  an English officer in his house. Beel-  ampore,    the   namo    of  the, town in  which ho lived,  was groaning.1 under  tho oppression of.a,fanatical and intolerant   moulvio,"   who    had  defiled  the temple with the abomination   of  cow's flesh..     Gossamjee had    taken  the   liberty   of     destroying    Randal  Sahib's dress, in which he had found  a valuable jewel; he begged that his  highness,would wear his turban when  at the window,  or on the house-top;  and  conform,   so  far  as  his  religion  permitted  him,   to   Hindoo  customs'?  in some of which he at once instructed him.     He then left him, sending  his   son,    Chunia,    a lad   of sixteen,  who taught him the mysteries of the  luxurious   hubble-bubble   and   several  useful Hindostaneo phrases.  (To be Continued.)  THE lOIlfflNJATTLBSBitPt  HOW IT COMPARES WITH   THffi  OLD THREE-DECKER.  What Nelson Would Have Thought  of  a   "London','   or  -  "Bulwark." *  We wonder what Nelson would havo  said if he could have looked a century ahead aiid read in tho daily  paper a sentence such an this : '"After the receipt of tho intimation tlio  Russian warships Varyag and Kerens*, left the harbor ana t-ngugecl the  Japanese Fleet at from six to eight'  miles' distance," a piece of information which we read to-day without '  the least surprise.  In'Nelson's timo a gun would fire  a 681b. ball with any'hope ol hitting an enomy's ' ship a mile away  was a thing,to be wondcred-at, and '  indeed, such monster weapons' were  rarely used. Tho standard weapon  carried by the largest ship of tho lino  was a thirty-two pounder, and to  make it effective the opposing ships .  preferred to ��� get within pistol-rang*  of each other before discharging their  broadsides.  -And  yet,     when  Nelson   was     still  alive and with    his greatest    honors  unwon, it was seriously thought that   '  the    battleship    of (the period    had  touched    finality in     naval  construe-.  ,  tion.        "The   size    of     our ships,")'  wrote ' a ' great   authority    in 1800,  "seems now to  have    nearly reached  Its maximum;, for Nature  herself    in  some measure        , ,  FJXES ITS LIMITS.     -    '-   V  Timber, the growth of. Nature, cannot be mado to grow larger, and tho  very element in which, our ship's are  to navigate has only certain depths  that cannot be increased." '  And    then   tho'writer  proceeds    to'  throw up his hands in amazement at* ���".  a  "ship of most extraordinary,    si/.o  which the    French have lately   built 7  ���with a keel 172 feet long    and    a  tonnage of 2,850���an unwieldy monster    pronounced to,bo entirely unfit  for service and,which hath never been  out of harbor."  But    what   a " baby this leviathan  would look to-day by the  side cf   a  ,  London or .Bulwark    of much    moro   ,  than twice the length and four times  the tonnage,  which can force its way,,  against wind and waves at a - speed  of well over    twenty   miles .'an hour.'  Still,  a first-rate    ship of a century  ago was a very fine vessel .and,   for  the time, a splendid lighting machine  well worth spending a minute or two -  in picturing.       Although    'called     a  "throe-decker" she had, in fact,   five  decks,  of     which   three  carried    her   *  hunderd or more guns. -' '  Along the whole length of her main  deck on' each side was a row of, seventeen thirty-two pounders; the middle-deck beneath carried seventeen of -7  these guns on each side together with  two 8 in. guns, pointing  < THEIR  GRIM MUZZLES  like their fellows above and below,  through as many ports; and on the ,  lower deck were twenty-eight thirty-  two pounders and four 8in. guns' ���  while still deeper in the ship was tho  magazine, containing about thirty-  five tons of gunpowder.  Thas we have a stately battleship  showing over a hundred, vicious teeth (.1  to the enemy, and sure to give an  excellent account of herself. Each  of her ninety-six smaller guns fired  a 32 lb. ball propulled by a charge  of 14 lb. of powder, and a broad-*  side would pour something like three-  quarters of a ton of metal into tho  enemy's sides.  A battleship of to-day, like the .  London, carries only forty-six guns;  but a single one of them-can discharge in two' shots as great a  weight of metal as an entire broadside of Nelson's biggest ship. The  12in. gun, of which each battleship  carries four, dispatches a projectile  weighing 850 lb. by means of a  charge of 207 lb. of cordite. Tho  Tho shell has an extreme range of  over twenty miles, and will go clt-an  through 3 feet of iron at the distance of a mile. The 0 inch gun  hurls a shell of 100 lb. weight, and  the 9.2 in. one of 380 lb.; while of  the forty-six guns, four of them will  pour forth in a couple of minutes  three times the weight of metal ono  of Nelson's ��� ships could discharge?  from all her hundred guns.   4.   BIRDS  DO THE CAKE WALK.  In  tho  Leeward Islands  there    are,  largo numbers of n particular* branchl  of   lhe albatross  fumily;  these  birds  habitually    perform,   with  great sol  enmity   and    regularity,   a  kind    of  cako   walk.      Two  birds step  up    to  one another, and the first bows profound ly to  the Kccond;  then  the second takes up     tho bowing, and after  that they bow alternately.   They circle  round  each ' ether,  still     bo whig;  this is kept up.,for a minute or   so,  and after that comes a little fencing  with     the '���; bills,   but- all  in  perfect  good     .temper.      7The    second    bird  stands still, at the conclusion of this  sparring,   while  the  first  stands ��������� on  tip-toe, .puffs -out 'its  breast,    raises  its bill ,as high in the air as it can,  ancl utters a .groan ��� that sounds lileo  tho     "moo"  s-f  a cow.      While    the  sound  lasts,   the    second  bird  snaps  its     bill    rhythmically.     .Sometimes,  the first will    pick   up a twig    and  offer it to the other, .but the second  refuses   "tho.' offering,   and,'-in     turn,.'  does  the Bame     thing;.-v.'Afterv   this,  the game begins again vvith, the var*  iation    that  the'-rotaa  arc-"-'reversed;''  The albatross-is a. Vii'ost polite bird,  and   it has  often  been  demonstrated  that  if a human  being bows  to    it,  the salutation is returned unfailingi;-.  by the, bird.

The blur resolved itself  v'Mnto the tender form of a girl; then  >'. blio drew,, the curtain quickly..  i' llo bent to pick up (he thing that  hud hit tick linn, and discovered th.it  'll'yx was holding it patiently in his  "'mouth.

(  It"  "Como'   under    the    (lump,    Pyx,"  commanded    Curtis-;      'And   tho dog  trotted     obediently   to   the     corner,  ', whero his master  took from  hun    a  < bunch of violets tied with   ribbon of  the same 'color, 'and ���enfolding a bit  ii of  crisp  paper.

"Beg pardon '" "ho said. "Beg  -lardon, but might I ask whoie you  got  those, violets ?'���"  Curtis  looked  at  him. '  "No," ho said, "you might  not !"  The little man fidgeted and reddened .  "But I must insist '" he said, "it  is important that I should know."  "That you should know nothing '  You can buy a bunch of violets at  an-..'street  corner" ,  Tho httlo man leaned over and  put an impiossive hand on Curtis's  arm.  "But,  not  with    that   ribbon,  dear sir," ho said.  "What do you know?" Cuitis asked in   turn.  Tlie little man fanly squirmed  "I cannot tell you Come with  mc I" ho pleaded  Cuitis followed the foreigner out  into tlio stormy street. They walked some distance before they stopped at a daik stone house. The  door was opened by a concierge, who  showed them into a handsomely-appointed library.  Here sat two men. One was tall  and dark,  the other   short and giey.  Curtis's guide did not stop for introduction or explanations  "Look i" ho cried oxcitedlv, and  dragged Curtis up to the table-that  the light might fall on the violets  and on tho ribbon winch tied them.  "lie refuses lo suy xxhere ho got  them,'-' he fumed.  Tho big, dark man looked at Curds  keenly. '  "You do not trust is *" he said.  "Well," said Curtis, "until I have  sonic explanation of your very unusual conduct, I must natuially  stand in tin attitude of defence."  "There can surely be no harm in  that," said the short, grey man,  "provided that wo have your word  that what wo suy shall go no lur-  thcro."  "All right," said Curtis,  "Wo look for the princess of a  small kingdom which shall go uri-  'naniocl. ' Whatever your surmises  may be they cannot reach the facts  'and xvo desire secrecy in the matter," said the dark man. "It is  enough that you should know that,  by a sorics of tragic deaths, this  princess has become next in succession to the crown, and that she has  run away."  Curtis thicvv back his head and  laughed gaily.  "So having  her wings, you  Mi a cage."  "Wo offer* her  the dark man  closed window. Then, reading mischief in tho faces of the three, he  reached quickly into an inner pocket  and brought out a card, across  Which he scribbled a line.  "Bo "seated, gentlemen!" he said  sternly.      "1 am not afraid."  Then all at once he thrust the  caid into  Pyx's mouth,'*  "Take it home '" he cried. And,  with one strong thrust of his olbow,  he shattered the glass of the window  and threw the dog into the stieet.  Then he felt himself pulled back by  strong- hands.  ' For several minutes the four grappled, breathing heavily, then Curtis  thicw them off. .  "If you hurt me you will be "sor-  ly," he hurled his defiance at them.  "My dog is now gone xxith'a note  which tells ol my dangci * Ho will  bring help."  "Lot him go," uud the fair man  nervously.

Our wideawake German friends recognise that being able lo do things  with both hands is a useful accomplishment, and in all the technical  schools the students have to piactiso  working with both hands. Tal'e, a  man who has to saw by hand Sou  will seo him with Ins uglit knee ou  tho plank ancl the saw in the right  hand; he becomes tiled in the corresponding arm,' and actoidiiigly  shifts his position and goes on sawing with his loft hand, because the  loll aim is quite fie.sh. Planing  and very many other kinds of work,  hillicrlo carried out by means of tho  light hand and aim, are performed  quite us well with the left. In some  eases, this facility enables a man  to double his output. Years ago,  the cieik who knew stenography pos-  sos'od a qualification which gave him  precedence ancl a higher salary, but,  at the present tune, it may fairly be  said that it is i\ necessity, and his  chanco of earning a living without  it, is not a good one. hi the same  way, the struggle in the labor market will bung about the use of both  hands.

States Geological Survey will be
carried out during the present
summer. The services of Mr.
Charier Pui'ington, of the firm of
Dovetou & Furington, milling engineer, of Denver, Col., have been
temporarily engaged by the survey
for the preparation of a report 011
the placer mining methods and
costs in the Alaskan territory. Accompanied by an assistant,' Mr.
Sidne3*- Paige, of Washington-,. Mr.
Purington is making a general inspection of, the placer operations, in
Alaska'dining the piesenfseason.
, Mr? Purington arrived here on,
Saturday last, accompanied by,*Mr.,
Sydney Paige of the'Geological
Suivey, and during the" past week
has inspected the hydraulic operations in progress on Pine, Boulder,
Spruce and McKee Creeks, and the
dredging.operations on Gold Run.
He says the area covered by pre-
glacial auiil'ei'ous gravels is undoubtedly large arrd will prove a
factor of much greater permanency
from a placer mining standpoint
than the past-glacial or very recent
gravels decuping  the  beds  of the
present  streams.-  The' Atlin. dis-

trict thus appears, to  afford afield
for placer .operations on a large

New York, June' 15th :—A thousand excursionists, mostly women
and children, were on the steamer
Slocsn, which caught fine iu the
waters of Hell Gate today. From
three hundred to five hundred persons perished in the flames or were
diowned. It is impossible to moie
than estimate the loss of life. The
disaster is the most appaling that
ever .occurred in New York harbor.
It is made more distressing by the
fact that most of the lives lost were
those of women, or children of tender age.
" Anglian for Atlin."
As soon as the water rises sufficiently to permit of the undertaking, the White Pass steamer "Anglian" will be taken up through
the rapids and canyon to the upper
lakes, where she will ply during
the season, between Caribou and
Atlin. A number of steamerf. have
been brought down through the
canyon and rapids^but the Anglian
will be, if she succeeds, the first
steamer to breast the current on the
upper voyage.—Whitehorse Star.

Itoscdcne, Out., May 9.���(Special)���  Robert C. 1/ampman, the well known  Cainsboro fanner ancl slock grower,  is completely cured of a long-standing case of Liimibngo, nnd he has  mado a statement for the benefit of  tho p'Jblic, in which he gives the entire credit for the cure to Dodd's  Kidney Pills. In his statement Mr.  Lampmcin says'/  "For twenty years I suffered from  Lumbago with all Us worst symptoms. I had the most distressing  pains it seemed possible to bear,  coupled with an irritation of , the  spine.  ��� "At times I wus entirely prostrated and was for weeks unable to do  anything whatever, and required tho  ficrvices of .my family to assist mc  In dressing and moving from a chair  to   the sofa.

The Way a , Young Man May Meet  With Success.  ,     The sort  of thinking that is necessary  to  anyone who  wishes to     rise  ,���    lis  that which has been aptly described as thinking ahead.    The cleric who  imakes     his   start   in   commercial   life  land ".thinks   only  of  leaving-oft   time  and    amiiBCineiit  ..may     as  well   stop  r /hoping*  for   the   day' when  he   will  be  t, Imaster  on  hie     own  account.     "   The  lyoung  man  who  gets a  business     of(  'his own is he who  thinks ahead,  and  jin this way:  I "Let rac suppose," ho says to him-  'sclf, "that I api starting in business.  JHow should I set about buying, or  pricing, or*selling goods?" Starting  .from that point, he proceeds to plan  'and to look" about to see what oth-  -ors do, not exactly with a view' to  .copying thorn, but in order to compare, and so to evolve an original  method that will attain the object  better or more quickly.  ' Jn his inexperience he naturally  conceives notions that would ' land  him inlo, difficulties, but he discovers  this in time, and gains knowledge  thereby.  In the course of this planning as a  master, he finds that there aro certain details that reguire to bo ac-  Huired before ho can" hope to do well  as u principal, so ho turns his attention to these details as carried out  by subordinates, and he thinks about  those  also.  ITe  soon  attracls  attention.        His  planning    has    given him  originality  Hid  brightness.

The only possible way to' appreciate  the profundity, originality and comprehensiveness of his genius is to read  the history of physics during tho last  sixty years. TTe has done 'much moro  than anyone else, living or dead, to  make  it.  Another grant celebrated Kis birthday the other day. Lord Kelvin is a  Scotsman, Lord Lister a Yorkshire-  man. Who so imagines that his race  is played out, or that there are no  great men now-a-days, must reckon  vvith these two Britons, each of whom  has made a now science. Each of  them has boon given long life, has  scon the fruit of his labors; and they  have, between tliem, broken the 'record in* causing tho elevation of a  man to the peerage for his services  to science. Lord Lister, of course, is  the founder of modern surgery. Every  surgeon on ea'rth, every onerating  theatre, is a tribute to him. Most  of them would not exist but for him.  Black and yellow, in missionary or  military hospitals, owe their lives to  him, just as King Edward does, or a  million others now living, to say nothing of tho future. Of 'courso, no  man stands alone in science. ��� Without the immortal French chemist,  Louis Pasteur, Lister could - ncvor  have been. Nevertheless, it is truo to  Bay of him that "he saves more  lives every year than Napoleon took  in all' his wars."

We are  usually in the habit ol -thinking of  crop rotation as of quite recent date,  writes Mi.   C.  A.   Wilson.  Ciop rotation is by no means of  recent 01 modern origin, for we -find  in the writings of Cato, Pliny, Columella, and Fcstus, that it was practiced at the time or the Roman crvi-  lization. Their method of rotation  was to glow a grain crop for two  years and then let the ground he  fallow for a year. 13y so doing, they  reasoned,that the land gained a needed rest, while the truth was, that the  year's rest added no fertilizing elements to the soil but simply increased the soluble salts rn the soil.  But  our moie   modern   system     of  crop rotation  dates  back  to the recent time,, when in England the faim-  crs lived in village  communities, nnd  was made   necessary bv the methods  of agriculture    which 'then prevailed  The management of tin* farm was not  in the  handy    of the individual,   but  was under the control of the village.  Math  family was allotted  a piece ��� of  land  for  a single season  upon  which  to giow a certain kind "of crop. .And  to avoid all conflict of interests, each  of tho large, common fields was marked  oil    into     three  gieat  parts,   and  each  pait  was     lotatod  with   winter  wheat' or    iye,  barley or oats,     and  fallow      This   was  the  crop  rotation  that was practised  orr the moio   fertile soils of Euiope for centuries.   So  ..thoroughly  did  this  rotation  become  established  that  it   actually     became  an    impediment    to  a more rational  bystem of agiiculture s ,   ,  It is folly to talk crop rotation to  a man    who is    cultivating a virgin  soil^ for is he not growing good crops  of ha-j.  or    wheat on    the same field  ,,   year after year'?   "It is tiue     But let  I   us see what he is doing     He is tak-  \S inS  fi'om  the  soil,   without  replacing  anything in return, the capital     that  nature has taken centunes    to  thero     .

It rs simply the loss of ono or more essential  plant  elements  from  the  sorl     below  the  amount needed  to  support plant  lr't> successfully.    It is surprising   to  (r what extent some of the farmers     of  ,/this    state    continue to crop a field  vf with  the  same  kind  of a  croD. -year  ,, after year, when we have at our very  '��� door in the    eastern states examples  - of what has been the lesult oi    such  j a system.

While agriculture is one of the most  thoroughly investigated sciences of  our day, yet it is one in which the  investigations are the least put into  general practice, although many of  tho theories lesultnig from investigations on crop rotation have been to  some extent erroneous, yet when put  into practice they have given  A PRACTICAL SOLUTION  of how to maintain soil fertility. Tho  benefits derived from crop rotation  were formerly explained by chemrsts  rn this w ay, that each plant secreted  a substance that was poisonous to  itself, but which another plant could  use in its growth. But this has  been found by later agricultural scion-  trsts to be not true.

W. Chase, tho  famous receipt  book  author,   are   on  tion    are based  principles  1. That all plants do not draw to  an equal extent upon the manurial  ingredients of tho soil.  2. That they send their roots to  diflcrcnt depths and have a different  solvent action upon the constituents  they reach. - ,  3. That the soil is maintained in  good tilth by the addition of humus;  and bacteria which is beneficial to  the soil ancl tho plant is encouraged.  4. And that weeds aie moro easily  eliminated and the farm worlc distributed more evenly. '  Experiments carried on at our ex-  pcriment stations have showed that  wheat ancl coin require more potash  than oats or barley,- and also that  clover hay removes a larger amount  of nitrogen fiom the soil, but it has  also been proven that clover obtains'  a larger amount of its nitrogen by  the aid of bacteria,  from tho air.  Is it, then, advisable to buy our  nrtrogen in fertilizers at the rate of  fourteen cents per pound when clover  will take it from the thirty-eight tons  of nitiogcn that iests over each acre  of land in our country? The Minnesota experiment station found that  by introducing a crop of clover every  fourth yeai* they could grow as much  wheat in tho remaining three years  as they could grow in four years of  continuous .cropping. Thoy also showed that "wheat grown continuously  for four years removed annually  ' TWENTY-FIVE POUNDS  of nitrogen per acre, while 146 pounds  more were lost. This" nitrogen was  lost by the oxidatior? ,of the humus  by denitrificalion chemically, by windstorms and' through the loss ,of solu-  able nitrates by drainage. In a rotation' of wheat, clover,- wheat and  oats an average of 178 pounds of  nitrogen per acre was removed annually, yet there* was a gam for four  years over and above this amount'of  245 pounds of nitrogen. This nitrogen  was gamed largely by the clover froni  the free niti ogen of the* air. In/this  rotation not only were larger crops  grown, but tho nitrogen and humus  contents of the sorl was increased.,  It has bcen( said that Successful  farming is based upon the conservation of. the organic < matter of the  soil, and tho following out' of a good  system of ,crop rotation is tho - one  method wheieby we can conserve this  organic matter ^ of the soil. It is  important that we foster,the humus  of our soils, because in it we have  the principal source of nitrogen in  the soil* also it influences to a marked extent tho available potash \and  phosphoric acid of tho soil.' _ Humus  forming materials, like'green manures  and,barnyard manure, have the power, when they decompose^in-the soil,  of combining with tha onsoluablo potash and phosphoric - acid of the' soil  and converting ��� . them ��� into ..forms  which are readily available by-plants.  It also aids in the relaxation of soluble  nitrates and ammonia phosphates.  But the benefits that aro to be derived from humus in the soil cannot  bo measured entirelyrby its chemical  effects, but what seems to bo the  greatest source of benefit to be derived from it, is from its physical  effects upon the soil." A soil that  contains a proper proportion of humus 3V1II be more porus, will hold  more capillary water, and will average from 2 to 3 degrees more in temperature throughout  THE GROWING SEASON.  Now it can plainly be seen-that  there are only two ways by vvhrch wo  can keep up or add to this humus  content of the soil, namely, by very  heavy manuring, or by using a good  system of crop rotation, in which wo  turn down at least once in every  five years some nitiogen ciop, such  as clover. This is one of tho reasons why alfalfa * should never be  grown extensively in Michigan. It  is not at nil suited to crop rotation  because of the length of time it takes  to establish the crop.  The amount of humus added to  our'soil by a crop of clover or a sod  is even greater than wc would at  first suppose. ' Storrs, of Connecticut , experiment station., fouml that'a  grass sod three .inches high, when  plowed under, returned to trie soil  8,228 pounds of ' organic matter  which' contained 90 pounds of nitrogen, 25 pounds of phosphoric acid,"  and 56 pounds of potash, which at  present prices paid for commercial  fertilizer would bo worth ��17.40.  Arrd sinco a soil's capacity for holding capillary water is increased by  ���J.37 pounds for excry pound of added humus, then tire capillary water  capacity of this acre would bo increased by 18 tons.  But the chemical and physical benefits to the soil that are derived from  crop rotation are not the only  important points to bo considered in  its favor. There is no better method for eradicating weeds, and for  apportioning the farm labor throughout the growing season than a good  rotation that includes one hoe crop.  Just as soon as tlie Michigan farmers begin to systematize their work  and enrich their soils with proper rotations just so sopn will they begin  to grow wheat that will run moro  than 17,7 bushels per ,acre, oats 30.5  bushels per acre? and corn 30.6 bush-  *"^        - ���%  Fashion    .4  ?

The tailored shirt waist has a-rival  in the simple sheer blouse, but it  has by_ no ���- means been supplanted,  and, for certain purposes, it is , decidedly more desirable than any other  separate waist.'  For outdoor summer sports' the  shirt waist is the thing, and a host  of women maintain stoutly that a  trim tailored shirt waist is more chic  in connection with a coat arid slcirt  morning costume than the daiotiest  of sheer embroidered blouses. The  latter is, perhaps, more distinctly feminine, more exquisite in quality, and  strongest argument of all, more Parisian, but it loses Its cfreshncss and  daintiness readily, and when mussed  has little charm. ,  Tho shirt waist, made of stouter  stuff and severely tailored, stands  rough wear better, rosrsts the reckless  assaults of the laundress, and is really an indispensable feature of the  summer girl's jwardrobc.  The shirt waist suit is_of "course  smarter'than the separate shirt'waist  and there is? a marked .tendency this  season'lo-makc up simple skirts to  match shirt waists of all kinds.' If  the'prices asked at popular shirt  waist makers' shops for- the whole  frock tire out-of proportion to, a woman's income" she inv many cases has  her waists \, made at-the shop, buys  enough material matching the waists  for skirts, .and' makes the skirts herself at home. " j _ ,  Some very, good shirt waist makers  will use materials bought by tlie customer; but unless one goes to a good  maker the safest course is to buy a  good pattern, hire an inexpensive  seamstress, and have the waists made  at home under one's own direction!  To make a shirt waist may seem a  simple proposition, but, as a" matter  of fact ' a ^really , satisfactory shirt  waist is a rare thing. Very careful  fitting is required; and in the . large  shops, where hundreds of the waists  are turned out in a weejc, and many  workpeople ' are employed, 'mistakes  are of frequent occurrence. A careless  workwoman may undo the work of a  careful , fitter; and often the home-'  made shirt waist^ fitted early and  often, and watched at every point in  its progress, turns < out much better  than the 'expensive shirt waist ordered at the fashionable shop.
