The  ", Lieut.-Governor of'B'C. gniced  the Convention with "-his pieseuce,  u and paid a high tribute to the  mining industry and those who followed r it. The Government,  through the Premier, viecognued  ' the^importance of the Association  by asking that it appoint a commission to proceed to Fernie, B.C., to  endeavor to settle the stiike of the  coal miners at that place. A commission, co. sisting "ol Mr Keen,  President of the Association,  Messrs Gaunce.

John Bruce, so well known in tho  isqtantlflc world as a patient and laborious student and lucid   teacher,   laid  i.��5own his pen, and glanced across his  -' Writing table at his wife with rather  < a 'thoughtful look In' his honest, kind  f>rown eyes.  "Have I?   I thought you never did  Cream, John."  '   "Well. I don't often.   But I dreamt  Hast night with a vengeance'. That cold  Muck I had for supper was responsible  .for It, of,course.   It was a very curious  Uream."  , "What was It. John?"    ,���  ' | Mr. Bruce laughed. ���<  / "Why, If you weren't such a sensl-  Site little woman, I should hesitate'to  oil it you. My Scotch cousins would  \ma.y I've bpen what they call 'forespok-  ���n;' and If either you or I were in the  irery least superstitious, we should be  , Conjuring up all sorts of bogey fancies  ion this - pleasant, comfortable Valentine's Bve."  '* "Why, 'John, whatever ' did you  (Bream?" asked Ethel Bruce, smiling.  7 She was-a very fair, pretty, woman.  t fDf eight and twenty. . " ' -  j A tender, loving little soul, devoted  -���o her clever husband, and firmly clier-  , {ishing the idea that there j was no one  Qlke him in the,world. '  , A very pleasant,   home-like plcturt  Slid the  room  present,   with  its  cosy  crimson' curtains  at  doors   and  win-  Bows, its blazing fire, its pretty mistress, engaged with her sewing, on ono  side'of the hearth, its master, thought*  ful and studious, on the other.  ~' The Bruccs were in    easy   circum  stances, and their home life .was almost ideal.  .When his wife pressed him to ten  I "7, Ills , dream," John  Bruce    turned    his  ;;jV chair-to the Are,,and looked into tht^  -' \- fblaze for a moment or two with sligati  ', ly knitled brows^ "   '  "Let me think," he said. /'I musV  7<cll it^you in order.   Ahl'l have it. I'd  /.', (orgotten  it until a moment or  two  ?  , ago, when you mentioned Valentine's  / -'"Eve.   Well, now listen.  "In my dream I seemed to be sitting  j1 to this room, just where I sit now.  ,iwas 'writing busily, and it was ver>,  date.   The clock in the ball struck 12.  ,'iand I remembered it was Valentine's  Eve.   I left my writing and began to  <l*thlnk  of other Valentine's   Eves���of  lone in particular."  And he smiled affectionately at hl��  (trife.-whoni he wooed and   won   just  ,gen years ago.  . "i "Well, dear, go on."  /"Well, I was just turning    to    m")  ^ilmting again, when I noticed one ot  Ithose curtains move"���and he waved  liis hand1 towards the heavy crimson  [curtains  which  draped' the  windows,  i'The next .moment, a shape���I say a  Bhape,    for   I   could not distinguish  (whether it was man or woman, or, indeed, anything human���emerged from  ithe  folds   of  the  curtain   and ca'mo  swiftly towards me.  "It was all in   gray���the   garment'  ' {Jong and flowing, and the fa.ee quite  (Concealed.   Before I could spring i p to  ne��end myself���and, indeed, my limbs  seemed paralyzed���I saw the flash of a  naked blade, and realized that I v;aa  Jabout to be murdered.    I    tried    to  shriek, but could  not make a   sound.  lYou know what nightmare is.   But the  shock woke me.   I found myself safe  In bed upstairs, with you sleeping tran-  'quiliy beside me;  and I made up my  nilnd not to mako my supper ofE cold  rjduck again."  Mrs. Bruce had listened with that  curious kind of interest which the recital of weird dreams usually evokes,  Ibut she only smiled at the conclusion  pf It, and said���  > "I'm not sorry to find you can dream  a bad dream as well as I. I thought  you were superior to them, John."  But another person who had listen*  ed to Mr. Bruce did not take it by any,  paeans so cooly.  This was a little girl of eight o��  Alne, who had sat near the fire on a  ifootstool, almost entirely hidden by  Cher mother's skirts. <  / She sprang forward suddenly, and  Iclung to her father's knees, raising hex  leyes to his face, and crying out, witt  great agitation���  *" "Oh, papa, will that dream come  true?"  Mr. Bruce laughed as he lifted hi*  JIUle daugbter on to his knee, and  stroked her fair hair with a loving  touch, which showed how passing dear  jshp was to hiin.  " She was Ueir on'y child���a dainty  r .spiritual little creature, with a mind  and soul beyond her years.  Very lovely she was, with a ekin aft  delicate as a rose-leaf, luminous, darlc  eyes, and a wealth of beautiful gold-  fcrown hair. - ,  Those large, lustrous eyes were fixed  en her father's face now with a look?  of terror and distress. ,  His wierd dream had sunk deep into  lier childish mind. '  "���   He glanced at his wife amusedly.  "Marjorie is too sensitive, my dear,*  lie said. "She oughtn't to hear sucH  things till she Is older."  "But, papa, will It come true?" persisted the child, wistfully. And the  tears stood in her eyes.  "Come true? No, my pet. Thing*  ftappen in real life exactly contrary to  our'dreams. So you may set your Ht��  tie heart at rest."  Then he proceeded to give em expla--  bation of dreams���an explanation befitting a man of science and a philosopher. '" ' -<  The child listened attentively, and ia  the end gave a deep-drawn sigh of relief.  "I'm glad to know," she whispered.  T couldn't bear to let you die, papa."  And she put her little arms round t  his neck and- buried her face on his  bosom.  "My tender-hearted darling!" said  the fair, young mother, smiling at husband and child.  ��� * ��� ��� *  Four or five hours larer, Mr. Bruca  iWas sitting at work in the room, but  he was now quite alone.  His wife had left him an hour agev  With a tender good-night, and a laughing reference to his dream.  The two servants were in-bed and  last asleep. ,-  The house was very still. '  -  There was no sound in it save tha  foud ticking of the cIock in the hall.  Mr. Bruce went ca with his writ*  Jng, rapidly.  So absorbed was he that he did not  fiear the opening of the door, nor tho  , sound of a light footfall.  A*.soft hand laid on his arm madft  him look up, and, to his utter amazement he saw his little daughter standing close beside him,' clad in her white  (night-gown, her feet naked, her hair  falling .like a golden cloud about her  Shoulders.      , ,   *    >  "My darling, whatever' are you doing  tore'" -*  "Oh. papa!" *-?*>  And she began to sob a little.  "Well my precious, what is it?"  fie asked, anxiously.  "Papa, I was frightened about you!\  1 woke up, and thought about your  'dream. It frightened me���and���and *  came down to see if you were safe."  The child was shivering���with fear,  fiot with cold.  Her cheeks were pale; her eyes di*  iated.  There cxnild be no doubt as to the  genuineness of,her distress.  "My foolish little daughter!" exclaimed Mr. Bruce; but he caught her  .-up in his arms and strained her to him  In a passion of tenderness. "I am all  yight���and shall be. But You will  catch your death of cold. Run back to,  ihed, darling."  "No, not just yet, papa," and she  ���nestled more closely to him. "Let mo  stay just a little while."  m  "But, Marjorie, I couldn't write It  ^ou stayed, and I want to get to the  end of my chapter. Bun back to bed���  or stay! I'll show you something first.  (Look here, Marjorie. This is a valentine for r-amma."  r He opened a dra-ver of his writing  table and took a small package out of  It.  / It was a morocco case, containing it  locket, inlaid on one side with bluo  enamel.  "Oh, papa, how pretty!" cried tho  child.   "Do lot me look at ib."  Sho examined It, and was handing IE  4ack to him, when, somehow or other,  It slipped from her fingers and fell on  the tiled hearth, after striking sharp  ly against the edge of 'the fender.  Whri Mr. Bruce picked it up a bit ol  the pretty blue' enamel was chipped  off. \    ,  Marjorie's sorrow was extreme, but  Aer father, like the kind-hearled philosopher he was, took it very coolly.  "Don't fret, dear. Mamma won't  faind a great deal; accidents will happen. It wasn't your fault. And now  run back to bed. I shall have imistied  In less than half an-hour, and I'll come  into your room and kiss - you good  night."  ' "Kiss me now, too, papa," said ths  child, raising her sweet, wistful face to  his.  He kissed her a dozen times.  "Good night, my darling. My prec-  fous, precious valentine!" he said.  For Marjorie had been born on St.  Valentine's Day.  She left the room obediently, and  tad got as far as.the top of the staira  when she heard a sound which mado  her childish heart beat fast with terror���her father's voice, ,,'ralBed in a  loud, strange cry.  Back she ran to the room, wild with  fear, and with her face as white as lier  gown. As she .opened the door she  caught a glimpse of a' tall form escaping through the bpen   window,   from  WHICH TBB'CUJlftm   Datt *W ���summ  aside.  On the floor in front of the window,  her father was lying���still, quite still.'  A,moment later, Mrs. Bruco, arous-  . ed from sleep by tho strange cry,  rushed into the room. - She found Marjorie; bare-footed and in .her nightgown, kneeling on the floor in an agony of grief and terror, vainly trying  to support her dead father in her arms.  CHAI-TERII.   k  In the Train.  Nine years later. " f n  The London express from Crewo  flras on the point of starting.  1 The guard had all but raised his  whistle to his lips, when a porter was  ' seen hurrying along tho platform with  a young lady, dressed in slight mourning, who was evidently anxious to  catch the train.  The porter pulled open a door; it belonged to a first-class compartment,  and there was a single passenger inside���an elderly gentleman with a  thick travelling rug' wrapped round  his knees, and books and papers littering the seat beside him.  The young lady gave a little -incoherent exclamation, and seemed as  though she would have drawn back.'  But there was no time for this.  The guard banged ,the    door,,   tha  whistle sounded and the train moved  ' out of the station.  The young girl���for she was nothing  more,* being barely eighteen * years' of  age���sank into one of the comfortably  cushioned seats, with a look of such  unmistakable agitation and distress  that^the gentleman could not but observe it.  "I hope there is nothing amiss," ha  said, courteously. "Surely they have  not put you in the wrong train. This  Is for London."  "I'm in the right train, thank" you^  but," she flushed crimson, then added,  bravely, though v. ith an evident etfort:  "But this is a^finst-class compartment  and I am only a third-class passOpger."  "Indeed! That is a very trifling accident," said the gentleman, pleasantly. "I think you need not .worry over  it. No doubt the porter made a mistake."  "Yes, that was it," murmured tfij  girl, with a suspicion of tears in lier  eyes. "Can you tell me how far 1  shall have to go before 1 can change?"  "Welf, we stop at Stafford, I believe.  Don't be uneasy. You may take my  word for it, the railroad company will  not be hard on you."  And he smiled in a frank, pleasant  fashion, calculated to set her entirely,  at her ease.  After this there was silence for a  minute or two.   -  The gentleman turned to his papers;  (but, nevertheless, he gave,'every no^w  and then, a quietly scrutinizing look at  the girl sitting- opposite.  She was, of middle height, slender,  and graceful, with a refined and exceedingly lovely face.  A pure oval face���tho eyes large anfl  lustrous, and fringed by long dark  lashes, the complexion delicate as a  rose-leaf, the shining hair of a beautiful golden brown.  A truly lovely face, the gentleman  decided, but rather a sad one just now,  He noticed the extreme plainness ol  her dress���indeed, his clear gray eye-  seemed to take in evei*, thing at a  glance���and came to the conclusion  that she was a gentlewoman, though  a poor one.  He himself was a distinctly androcratic-looking man'of sixty���his ii.'.ii  gray, his somewhat military-loonma  moustache almost white.

After a few minutes, he laid aside  his papers and looked at his young  traveling companion.  It was easy to see that she was iB  deep trouble;-the tears were standing  In her lovely eyes.'  "My child," said the old gentleman,  "you are-too young"���his look added  , "and too pretty"���"to be making this  long journey all    alone.    Have    you  friends to meet you?"  The pleasant, fatherly manner up*  pealed to the girl's inmost heart; U  caused her tears to ilow faster and  faster.  "You are in trouble, I see. Is thcrt  anything���I am an utter stranger, and  don't -wish to be inquisitive���Dut is  there any thing I can do for you?"  Sympathy is always welcome.  The girl needed no further encouragement to tell her simple story.  She was an orphan, she said; had  lost both her parents while she waj  very young, and ha-1 been brought ue  by a relation of her mother's, who had  lived in the south ot France..  This relation having died recently,  and her, annuity dying with her, tin  girl was left to make her own way in  the world. '  She had no other relative that shi  tnew of, and no friends in England.  Through the medium of an advertise.  m��nt, however, she had, a fortnight  ago, obtained an engagement as com-  ' panion to an English lady, and has  " traveled from France yesterday to ful-  - fil it.  Imagine her grief and horror to tint  on reaching her destination that th-  lady had been suddenly called to Africa, to nurse her huBband, who war  dangerously ill there. ' '  She had telegraphed to France, ap.  prising the girl of her change of plana  and asking her to postpone her journey till she heard from hor again; bul  unfortunately, the latter had started  before the telegram arrived, and shi  reached her English destination bnlj  , to find the house shut up, and in1 tin  hands of a caretaker.  "And  what will ,ycj�� do, my pool  tehlld?" asked the   gentleman,   very  kindly, .having listened to'the pathetic  little story with much Interest and  ���(sympathy.  ,- "I don't quite know. .1 am going'to  fLondon how, to try to find out an old  Ijservaht, whose address I have.

Marjorie uttered this little exclatna-  lion; and then sat silent, looking at  him with a world of gratitude shining  in her eyes.  "Take a "little time, and think this  over," said Mr. Hyde, kindly, "it is  my daughter for whom I want a companion, my only child, and a dear,  sweet girl, with whom, I feel sure, you  would be happy. We are by no means  people of fashion; but our home'is a  pleasant one, a quiet country house, a  dozen miles fiom London, and very  prettily situated. As to references.

Hyde and Marjorie alighted at a  (little country station, they having left  fthe express at Euston, and finished  ���their journey in one of the slow local  trains. ,  A well-appointed carriage was lo  ftvaiting.  Mr. Hyde and Marjorie entered itj  the servant who had traveled with)  his master mounted beside the cfach-  man, and away they ��� drove toward*  Denelands, which Mr. Hyde had told)  Marjorie was the name of his home,   i  A drive of half an hour brought  them to it. ,  It was a handsome white building^-  ample and substantial, though plain.   ;  It was surrrounded by a large gar-  Hen aud shrubberies, .and there was ai  neat white lodge at the entrance-gate.  There appeared to be no other house  (Within a distance of half a mile.     "    j  Just behind it, on a slight eminence-;  was a wood; at the 6ide of it a wide  lake.  Tho * carriage bowled swiftly and  smoothly up the drive and stopped at  ithe hall door.  Mr. Hyde, with great courtesy, assisted Marjorie to alight and led her  ���Into one of the parlors opening out of  the hall.  It was a remarkably pretty, refined  apartment. A cheerful fire was burning in the grate.  A lady's work-basket and some needle  iwork were lyh'er on the table; an  empty chajr stood near.  "Ah, my daughter is not here, 1  see," remarked Mr.    Hyde,    glancing  swiftly round -the room.   "Sit down,-  ���Miss St. Clair, and I will fetch- her."  Marjorie seated herself near the fire,  tind awaited the coming of Miss Hyde,  With no small degree of trepidation.  When Mr. Hyde made his generous  offer, she accepted it almost at once,  simply because she was so distressed  and overwrought that she knew not  avhat else to do.  But now she could not but reflect  that the daughter might not approvo  iher father's choice.  She might be a haughty, mistrustful young lady, who would object to  this intrusion on the part of an uttei  Stranger.  Mr. Hyde had remarked, in tha  course of conversation, that he waa  a widower, so Marjorie knew hia  daughter was mistress at Denelands.

During tea the two glrla sat opposite each other, and more than onc��  Idarjorle caught  Miss    Hyde's    eye-  fixed upon her with a lopk she could  not fathom���a scrutinizing   gaze,    as  though she would penetrate into" th��  i1 Innermost secrets of her soul.  That look puzzled Marjorie.'    ^  There came a day when she under*  Stood It well.   ,  CHAPTER IH, r'f  *   *��� Visitors.  Marjorie thankfully availed herself  ��f Miss Hyde's'conaiderate offer, aud  retired to her room very early in thi  evening.  "When she went    downstairs    next  morning she found Mr. Hyde in th��  "breakfast room, his fine, fresh com.  - flexion all slowing from his matutinal bath.  He greeted her with the utmost cordiality and kindness.  To herself she said that if only th*  faoghter had tha frank, pleasant maa-i  her of the father, her home might ba  a very happy one indeed.  In a moment or two Mies Hyde appeared, dressed in an elegant moraine  gown, and looking even more beautiful than she had looked the night before.  Her manner, however, was restrained, though perfectly well-bred and polite.  Evidently she had no Intention of  getting on terms of freedom with her  young companion until she knew her  better.  Mr. Hyde seemed to notice and b4  (Texed by his daughter's coldness.  Indeed, once Marjorie saw bim cast  a glance of unmistakable reproof at  ber.  After breakfast, the members of the  family were free to follow the day's  occupations or diversions.  Mr. Hyde rode out on horse-back,  first commending Marjorie very kindly to the care of his daughter.  "You must remember she is among  strangers, Madeline, and try to keep  her from feeling lonely," he said, as he  left them. "And you, my dear, must  make up your mind to regard us as  your friends."  A mist of grateful tears dimmed  Skfarjorie's eyes as, standing by the  (window, she watched him ride away.  How kind he was, how generous,  bow true a gentleman.  Already she loved him as she might  Crave loved a dear and honorable relative.  Oh, if only his daughter were more  flko him! She turned to find Made-  Bine's eyes fixed on her with that same  scrutinizing gaze she had seen in them  fast night.  This time a slight shade of melancholy crosped Miss Hyde's brow, as  though she saw something which gave  iaer pain.  She suggested they should sit by the  !Sro and do some needlework together.  ' Blarjorie readily acquiesced, and a  iservant brought in a great roll of flan-  jael from which Madeline commenced,  jwith great dexterity, to cut a number  of garmento, which, she said, were for  fthe poor.  "I'm always so pleased to do any-  fthlng of this kind���for   the   poor, I  aalfl Marjorie, watching her  with interest.' "I'm glad you like it,  too.".  But, Madeline disclaimed all merit  In the transaction.    v <  "If 'I were left to myself I should  Sever make a single garment," she  said, with frank carelessness. "I do  It simply because my father wishes  St. He likes me to be kind to the indigent." ,�����  "He is kind to everyone, I think,"  said Marjorie, > softly.    ,     h '  Miss Hyde made no answer.  A curious look flitted over her face-  almost a mocking look���as though she  had her own opinion about her father's  kindness.  All that day Miss Hyde and Marjorie  were alone together, for the master of  the house did not return till early ia  the evening.  Little by little tho elder girl's man-  ,. tier, unbent.  The air of cold restraint' dropped  from her; her face lighted up into new  beauty. '  Marjorie said ,to herself���  "Oh, how I could love her If only ah*  - (Could always be like this."  The truth was it was Marjorie'a own  sweetness that had softened Madeline.       -*> ���     ,  There was a charm about her which  aron its way to most, hearts. >  Hard indeed would have been th��  Heart that could resist her. -        '  The two girls were still sitting to-  , gather by the morning room fire when  Mr.* Hyde returned. % ,  "I hope we have something good for  dinner, Madeline," he said, cheerfully.  "Your cousins will be here to-night."  Madeline looked up, startled, a red  cpot on her cheek, excitement in her  eye.  '[I got a wire from them at the station,"  went on her " father,    easily.  "They will be here for dinner.    Isn't  it time you went upstairs to dress?"  \ "I think it is," said^Madeline, speaking in an abstracted, preoccupied fash-  Jon.   "Come, Marjorie." ^  , And they left the room.    -  / Ten'minutes later Marjorie,, aa she  (dressed in her own chamber, missed a  little gold sleeve link from her cuff,  and feeling sure she had dropped It  either in* the hall or on the staircase,  she slipped out to look for it.  At ..the bottom of the stairs she  found it; and as she stooped to pick it  up she heard Mr. Hyde's voice in a  ro-jin close at hand.  It was slightly raised, undoubtedly,  In anger or displeasure���  "Do as I tell you," ho said, imperatively. "You know my plana. Silence!  I will not hear a word. Enough for  you that I mean to be obeyed."  It was not intentionally; that Marjorie had overheard even this* much,  and she went upstairs again as soon  as she had got her sleeve link, without  pausing for a single unnecessary moment.  She concluded/it must he one of tho  servants Mr. Hyde was speaking to,  and wondered what *iad been done to  arouse such severe displeasure in so  mild-tempered a man.  A couple of minutes later there came  a tap at her door, followed by the-entrance of Madeline."  "You've begun to dress, I see," she  remarked, carelessly. "I thought I  would come in and tell you to put on v  one of your prettiest dresses. -My father will like it, I think, and take it  as a compliment to the arrival of his  nephews."  Marjorie was only too pleased to dm  anything to gratify Mr. Hyde.  She acquieced at once.  "Will you choose for me?" she said  So Madeline.   "Ah, do, please."  Madeline walked to the wardroba  Without speaking, and looked at the  two or three evening dresses which  hung there.  "You might wear this, I think," sho  said, pointing to a very pretty frock,  eau-de-Nil, in color, and most charmingly made. "I will send you a fe**B  flowers to wear with it."       *  "Oh, thank you; how very, very kind  you are."  Again a slightly mocking smlla  'curled Madeline's perfect lips.  Marjorie did not see It, however, for  fcer face was averted, and a moment  later Madeline quitted the room.  When the dinner bell rang and Mar*  forlo went downstairs, she made as  fair a picture as the mind could frame  pr the eye could rest upon.  The delicate shade of her dress har*  tnonized exquisitely with the fairness  of her skin.  Her eyes were sweetly lustrous he*  foind their long silken lashes; her  beautiful golden brown hair shaded  her white brow, and was gathered in a  simple Greek knot at the hack of her,  tiainty head.  She looked sweeter than words can  day.  . Mr. Hyde, who was alone In the dtn�� I  Ing room, glanced at her with a well  "pleased smile. ,     *  "Did Madeline send you the flowers,  my dear?" he asked, looking at a lovely cluster of pink roses which wero  pinned across her bodice.*  *\  "Yes, sir. > It was very kind of her,  (Was it not?"  "I trust you will never meet with  anything but kindness from Madeline,"  said the old gentleman, earnestly.  The next moment Miss Hyde.enter  ed, gowned in old rose silk, with trimmings of rich Spantsh lace. -  Her' cheeks were flushed���her eye*  sparkling.

" Whether he'returned her love, Map  forle could not be quite so sure.  There was evidently some kind of aa  understanding between them.  , As, on their entrance he kissed her,  (While his brother was content with a  simple hand-shake, so, , during N the  whole evening, his manner to her was  lover-like; his place, of right, seemed  by her Bide.  Nevertheless, Marjorie could not be  Quite sure he loved her, and once or  twice she detected a jealous, dissatisfied look in Madeline's eye, as it  (rested on him.  Mr. Charles Hyde took his place beside Marjorie, and seemed well content to stay there; nor waB she ill-  pleased to have him, for he was a  pleasant, entertaining companion, and  bad read most of her favorite poets  " end authors.  She found it quite delightful to converse with him. , Among other things  be told her some capital stories of his  Adventures at Oxford. y  His brother, who chanced to b��  Btanding near, caught a word or two  and said���  "What's that you're telling Miss St  Clair, Charlie?"  "Oh, only a little ta'p about a scrapt  I got into at Christ church."  This answer seemed to amuse thi  elder brother exceedingly.  It was with difficulty he kept from  ran*- his handkerchief to his eyoo.  "Miss St. Clair, your voice is divine!" trclalmed 'Edgar Hyde, with  enthusiasm.  And both Charles, and Madeline  echoed the sentiment.  Mr. Hyde laid his hand in futherQ!  fashion on the head of the young play;*  er as'she still sat at the planofrrte.    \  "You have given me a great pleaa*  fire," he said, in -a sllghty fal*erlns��  poice, but very earnestly.

On Ihe contrary, a rather uneasy and  anxious look crossed her face as she  glanced at Marjorie.  Late in the evening Mr. Hyde asSed  for some music. -  "You play, Marjorie?" said Madeline,  Mid the suggestion was so warmly secluded by all three gentlemen that Marjorie could not but comply.  "I ���wonder if you can play my favorite," said Mr. Hyde.  "What is it, sir?"  He rose, and placed a piece of musla  fn front of her. It was Mendelssohn's  "Hear My Prayer."

There was .a frankness about .him  Which was very winning, and this,  coupled with his attractive face and  high intellectual capacity, could scarcely fall to charm a girl so young, so inexperienced, and so Impressionable aa  Marjorie.  The clear, observant eye ef Mr. Hyda  saw all that was -going forward.  He made no attempt to detach bla  nephew from the society, of the lovely  young stranger; nay, his countenance  even lighted up with benevolent pleas-  are as he watched them.       , < ,  It might have been one of the dearest  desires of his heart to bring about an  attachment between the two. -  Madeline, on the contrary, seemed  fllspleased by her cousin's attentions  (o her companion. .-  , When she could keep him apart from  fier she did so, and seemed, moreover,  to find a malicious joy in doing it.-  She spoke to him more than once in  a tone of asperity, and the glances of  her was jealous and mistrustful as she  noted Marjorle's cheek occasionally  crimson beneath his glance.  When the two girls retired that  evening, Madeline called Marjorie into  her room.     ,,  "Come and sit with me for a few;  minutes," she said.  And, as they sat beside the Are together, she began almost immediately,  to speak of her two cousins.  Of Edgar she said little.  The bare mention of his name was  enough to bring the flush to her cheek  and the love-light to her eyes.  She loved him, and was not yet free  enough with Marjorie to speak to her  of her love.  So much Marjorie was quick to understand.  But  Madeline was by    no    means  equally reticent concerning Charles.    '  ,        (To be Continued.")

Practically,  in  Great  Britain thet*^  are few small, land-owners/or aene. 7  A laboring man  who  owns bis cot-,,  tage is a rarity;   one who owns the   *  land   en which   it'. sUndn^almort an./,^ |S ?M\  impossibility. ' . *  7 ;,���    f WAv"?  The taxes which the -individual pays*     } ���� *"*,  seem trifling.' All the taxes last year r  were $471,366,140.   The share of eacsu  individual was    but $6.73.      Britain's t  taxes during the same period amount--  ed to  ��2 10s. each, or nearly twice*  that of America.   It must also be4cen��� >  eldered that our rate was   unusually,  high' owing to the expenses  of ' the  war.    A. good, deal  ot    complaint 1b,  heard of the extravagance of tae'GoyH  ernmeat, but the share of the individual Is small.    The total, expense* of'  the Government last year if   divide*  jrould have placed a burden of $6.tt  0a the ia-Hvidual.   This is a share of  the sum of $487,103,000. \��;  The Individual contributions to tha  various departments also sound curl- ���  ous in -.view of the great things which*.  have been accomplished.   We are alfc ;  proud of our navy, which during the ���'  past year has been larger and more-  expeaslve than ever before.   But each;  Individual was only required to contribute Just sixty  cents  to maintain  this department and our great, fleets  of warships. t The total expense, to be  cure, was   $48,099,000.     The   mainte- ,  nance of the army' last year was one t  of the most expensive items the Gov-7  erament has ever called upon to meet.   ���  It cost us just $80,000,000.    The war-  with the Philippines and the .maintenance of an army Jn: Cuba and Portcp.*'  Rico, besides the regular expense t of  *  the department, could be   met, however, if   each individual    contribute*.-  $1.14.   The expense of running the entire Government cost each of us exactly $1.92.'  The United States, as    every    one- .  knows, is  the ,richest nation  in  tho  world.   Our bonded debt is $1,032,000,-    ��� !  000.    Each of us  is  in debt on this      j  score just $14.74.    Looked at in  this      (  way   our national debt,    large as ' it      j  seeme,'is a trifling thing.    The  real      i  estate holdings of the individual, ac- -~ !'  cording to this distribution, are alone  worth more than forty times his in-      I  debtedness.   It is no wonder that the  world considers    loaning    money    to-  America a good risk.  Our country is the land ot railroads.'  As every one knows we have more  railroads by far than any other conn-  try In the world. The mileage of''the  United States is 180,000. The share of  the individual is 33% feet of rail. Still  another way to state our great wealth  is to calculate the amount of gold and  silver which woul d come to us if all  were equally divided. Each of us  would have $70 in silver bullion a��  Bis share and $18.50 in solid gold.  'V-.I  m  :..���?  Johnsonians.

The   confession   of    ignorance  may be a manly and praiseworthy act.  The wisest of men know very well that  they are but guessing at rath.    While  Carlyle is quite right that- hero _ wor-  * ship  is  a vital  ingredient    in    human  nature, the wiser a man becomes    the  more diffii >ilt he finds it to keep hi* supposed  hei ocs from  tottering  on    their  ' pedestals.   Instead of realizing the ideal  wan he is compelled to idealize ths real  strongest   citadel   of  opposition.  If there were no conflict there would  be no i ictory. As in the case of Samson,1 wo find the hoiipy after the'lion is  slain���the very experiences that come  out and roar against lis shall furnish us  food.  "Play the man,' Aristpr Ridley," said  Liatimer to his iellow-martyr as they  stood amid the flames. Ay, play^ the  man: let the d\ ing give, counsel lo the  living. Let contrary things but furnish  a new stimulus. "0 Loid, by '".these  'things men live,"' snvs Tsaiah, "and in  all these things is tin* life of my spiiit."  May wo .face the issues of life without murmurings and misgivings; make  better what we may. bear bravely what  wo must.  So much for the press���Hie "weaiher-  couk of speculation," as it is called a few  pages further onj In her ideas on tho  Church of Rome the author mi'kcs thoroughly good the promise in iter earlier  novels. The question is not whether one  agrees with oi condemns th"sc attacks  on the Church of Home, on tne press, on  the Jews, on all -tlie vmiou0 topics that  Miss Corelli dVc-usses in the couise of a  novel. The point ii'lhat the melodramatic way<in which she expicsses her exaggerated ideas is her mosl picturesque  attribute as a novelist.- As in this novel,  most of the discussions could be omitted.  But if they were, there would only bo-  left a melodramatic story with only one  unusual way of committing suit ide not  mentioned in tlie author's former work.  , Hum��n> of the Hoim  ���(,<���!

Vwr better to -wait and see whe-  , fcher ' there may' not be p  smiling face  ''   behind the frowning Pre   Jence. ,.  These words, "All theoe things are  against me," also evidence a lack of  gratitude.  * Surely all things had not been against  . Jacob in the past. Was Bethel against  him when, as a youth,,his vaulting am.  bition having overleaped itself, he lay  ��n his dessert bed and communed with  angels and covenanted with God? Was  ^Penuel against him when, standing in  mortal danger, the angel, of the Lord  came to hia kneeling, side, turning the  ancient feud of Esau into fraternal taper?  Ingratitude does not consist only in  despising blessings, but in not despising privations; not only in minimizing  mercies, but in magnifying misers.  Many people are minded the rather to  .- read.the Book of Lamentations, one of  arboae chapters begins, "I am the man  that hath seen affliction by the rod of  Bis wrath," rather than the~ 103rd  Psalm, which opens ftBless tb Lord, O  aw soul; and all that is within me bless  Els holy name,"  May we be kept from that song that  as'always in the- minor key, from that  grim, melancholy that constantly has an  east wind blowing. May - we guard  against that morbid and lean philosophy,  ' always told in mournful numbers, that  life is but an empty dream; may we ,  find the tree of sweet and antidoting  properties beside every bitter pool of  Ifarah  waters !  These words, "All these things are  against me," evidence as well a lack of  trust.  Suppose Jacob's grievous surmises  fcad been true���for better people- than  Jacob have had worse misfortunes���  would that .have given any less reason  for trusting'? No. Faith in God does  not imply that we may have a cheerful  confidence that everything will always  be brought about���our way. Genuine  trust is to believe in the darkest night  that the sun shall rise, and to keep on  believing, altl ugh the morning seems  long in coining.  Even in this world we may be sure  there is sin answer io all ourdiard riddles, even though Ave do not knoAV whst  is the answer! All' ough avc see through  a glass daikly��� .e more darkly because human eyes are often blinded by  tears���yet avp shall sec face to face.  God Is still at the helm, though it bo  through troubled waters. That man's  name is faithlessness avIio does not include God in his reckoning, and who  does not believe that God includes him  In His reckoning.  'The words "All these things are  against mc" further evidence a lack of  eourage.  it is paltry business to sit down  among our ti...ls, like a whimpering  child among ils broken toys. Why, that  is the story of life���it is one steady,  workaday struggle. No man is half a  man who does not constantly seek to  reverse reverses.  Jacob did not find life a flowery bed  of ease. Ay, and neither have we. Yet  no one but a weakling Avill be content  to droop and repine and give up the  chip. "All these things arc against us?"  Of course they are, and we are to be  against these  things.  What does the ,AVorld need most and  prize most? Why, grit, power, success  ���a spirit which never says die. Men  thus animated win the day because  iltbey have learned the secret of making  atrength oppose strength, of matching  a Greek against a Greek, of having no  seat until their    colors    fly   over tho  Tfee Power cf Kings.  * Marie Corelli's "Temporal Power" is a  polieniic���the arraignment of royalty  and of the Church of Rome in faA-or of  what tlie author considers Justice, Truth,  and the Rights of the People.  In the iiist chaptpr a prince and heir  'to a'tinone���what throne or where the  facene of the story is laid we'are not informed���discusses, kingship' with his tutor.  "Professor," said the prince on one occasion, "what ia man?"  "Man," replied the professor, sedately,  "is an intelligent and reasoning being,  evolved by natural processes of creation  into his present condition of supremacy."  "Wha-t is supremacy?" "  / "The state of being aboA-e or superior  to -the rest of animal creation."  "And is he so superior?"  _, "He is generally so admitted." '  "Is my father a man?"  "Assuredly.    The question is superfluous."- . ,    ..  "What makes hrm a king?"    ,  , "Royal birth and the hereditary right  to his great position."  "Then if a man is in a condition of  supremacy oA-er the rest of creation, a  king is more than a man if he is allowed  to rule men?",  "Sir, pardon mc! A king is not more  than a man, but men choose him as their  ruler because  he is worthy." ,  "In what way is he worthy?    Simply  because ho is born, as I am, heir to the  throne?"  "Precisely." ,  "He might be an idiot or a cripple, a  fool or a coward���he    would    still be  king?"  "Most indubitably!"   .   .   .    ���  "Strange sovereignty!" said the young  prince, "and still stranger patience in the  people who would tolerate it."  i    Such reasoning leads the young prince  to the resolve that ho will be a man as  well as a king.    He resolves to  break  through all the "miserable conventionalism, the sordid commonplace of a king's  surroundings," and stand for something  more than a dummy.   He is married for  state reasons to a princessvof a neighboring realm.   The situation of a loveless  union is accepted by them; but the memory of a youthful love-affair"that ended  in tragedy because of his'rank and the  impossibility of marriage with a "daughter of the'people" makes him finally rebel to some purpose against such conditions.

He plays the double role of king  and of revolutionist, and in these two  roles succeeds in learning and  correcting the intrigues of his ministers, in "reforming" the press, and in breaking down  ivhat   the author  considers  the hostile  .power  of  the  Church  of  Rome.    In  a  word, he becomes the king of the people  ���the ideal exponent of "temporal power."  But in attaining this ideal he proves  that, after all,  there  is something far  greater.   In the meetings of the Socialists he meets a woman who is recognized  as one of their leaders.   His love for this  woman comes to be the great influence in  his life.   He discovers that he has served  the people" not through an ideal,   but  through love.    He puts aside the position he has won, to win 'her love in return.    The climax of the story* the author weaves around thi3 motive.    Tlie  woman is assassinated by a jealous lov-  eT.   According to her'wishes, she is(set  adrift after  death in 'a ship, after  the  old  Viking   custom,   "to   sail  the   seas  alone."     On   the   deck 'of   tho  helpless  craft that is being driven by storm out  to sea the two rival lovers meet.   One of  them kills himself, and  the other���the  king���tics himself to t-he coffin and goes  doAvn Avith the ship.  Such, in brief, is the story. But in  Miss Corelli's Avork it is not the story  that, counts. Her success is sensationalism. Here, for example, is what she has  to say of the press:  "Originally t'he press in all countries  Avas intended to be the most magnificent  institution of the civilized Avorld���the  voice of truth, of liberty, of justice^���a  voice Avhich in its clamant utterances  could be neither bribed nor biassed to  cry out false news. Originally such was  meant to bo its mission; but nowadays  Avhat, in all honesty and frankness, is  the press? What avus it, for example, to  this king, who from personal knoAvledge  was able to practically estimate and  enumerate t'he forces Avhich controlled it  thus: six, or at the most a dozen, men,  the proprietors and editors of different  newspapers sold in cheap millions to the  people. Most of these neAvspapers were  formed into companies; and the managers issued "shares" in the manner of tea  merchants and grocers. False news, if  of a duly sensational character, would I  sometimes send up shares in the market; ]  true information would equally on occasion send them down. . . And, con-'  cerning the people who Avrote for these  newspapers���of Avhat calling and eleotion  were they? Male and female, young and  old, they were generally of a semi-educated class, lacking all distinctive ability  ������men and women who were on the average desperately poor and desperately  dissatisfied. To earn daily bread they  naturally had to please the editors set  in authority over them; hence their expressed vicAVS and opinions on any subject could only be counted as nil, being  written not independently, but under tho  absolute control of their employers."       >  ' About the Size of It ,  Leopold���Josephine, I'm goin' ter be a  great musMiener like Paderoosker.

His Majesty suffered,from toothatAw  Boon after his arrival iii Paris, and seat  for a dentist. The dentist looked at Ma-  Majesty's teeth, and advised the extraction, not of one, but of several. The  operatien was postponed for a day, but  when the dentist returned he found the-  Shah all right, and apparently in a playful mood. The toothache had gone, an*  there was no longer any need for tke-  den+iat's services.  Aa the dentist was preparing* to leave,  the Shah' called him back, saying, "I d��  not like to have troubled you for noth-  . ing, so, as you have come, you had better draw a molar from each of my coun- '  selore."  The Shah spoke with his eyes fixed on  the ground, and in a meditative manner.  When he looked up all the counselors  had vanished, with the exception of the-  grand vizier, who manfully stood his  ground, unmindful as to whether his all-  powerful master was in joke or in earnest. The other counselors evidently believed in the earnestness of the master's  utterances.

ty, he Avas useless in any confidential

might not be apocryphal, but AA-hich A\-as
.good enough to be true. General Shei-
man hud been told tha t the soldiers of a

Closed tho Saloons.
On Thursday, the 11th, Collinwood, a
suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, by vote decided to close the saloons and ' dramshops for one year. The majority was
small, but its mandate is to be immediately acted upon. The vole was not
the result of a Avave of lefoim or a persistent agitation against the barroom,
but Avas taken because of the offer of a
laihvay company. An exchange lecord-
ing the chcumstances says:—"Collm-
A-ood is*not only the, homo of many
Clcvelanders, but the site of the shops
of the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern
Railroad.. This corpoialion has under
way improvements amounting to $2,-
000,000. The corpoiation announced that
it Avould invest an additional i'1,000,000
in building hemes which would be sold
to employees at cost if the dramshops
were driven out 'of the suburb. The
•presumption is that the ^railroad company had found that the presence of
the saloons and dramshops was a men-
«t-f> to its interests, that they decieased
the reliability of its employees and exerted a demoralizing influence upon
them. Thus, while the railroad company
was actuated by motives of self-interest
it at the same time emphasized the
premium that is put upon sobriety in
this department of industrial activity.
The election also illustratod the effectiveness of woman's influence exerted
upon voters when a moral prinoiplc is
at stake. The majority against the saloons was not largp, but it was big
enough to,wipe them out for a yonr and
to secure for the suburb the ' million-
dollar prize offered by*the Lake Shore
Road.   <-

The Cruelties of Nations.
"Whenever American criticism of any
foreign "nation becomes especially severe
on the score of inhumane conduct we
are very apt to hear-something about
the lynching of negroes,, says The Chicago Record-Herald. Spaniards anduFili
pinos have made use of this retort, it
might''be employed by the Grand Turk
himself, and a German paper incoipor-
ates it in a reply to Ambassador White's
comment on Roumama's treatment ot
the Jews. So far as the JeAvs themselves are concerned, the reply is irrelevant, for it is clear that the ill-treatment bfnegroes in tins countiy does not
'justifyv the - ill-treatment of any race
'elseAvherc, but there is a certain justice
in the rebuke to our national self-right-
cousness. We are inclined to sec the
faults' of other nations all expande 1 to
the largest dimensions, and to discuss
them in terms of immense superiority,'
if not of absolute perfection Yet it
is true that no othei nation in the
world has such a disgraceful and hideous
record as Ave in this matter ol lynch- \
ings. Putting aside the question of the
political rights of the negroes, which
might be the subject of sati'c at bur
expense, this grave national cri - o stands
out with a terrible distinctness that
might lead foreigners to conclude quite
naturally that ciAil libeity and self-government Aveie a farce here, and that our
boasted insitutions were a failure The
German paper certainly had revson
enough for its Script-nal -lefcicncc to
the mote and the beam.

follow aa-Iio could put Uiat fiddle under
his chin." The leccnt discovery in Madagascar of an egg sixteen inches long and
thirty pounds in Avcight led to a similar
anxiety on the part of the discoverers
to find the bird which aa-.-is capable of
laying it. The monster egg was acquired by a German scientist, avIio recognized it as the egg of the iicpj-oinis, a
bird of the astounding heigh li of sixteen
feet, and supposed to be extinct. That
there may bo specimens still living Avas
judged by the fact that the egg Avas
fairly ficsli. Indeed, some of the scientific enthusiasts on the island actually
held a banquet at Avhich a poition of
tho egg Avas served up in the ionn of an
omelette! (The Avholo egg, by the way,
would have made ninety-live omelettes of
ordinary size.)
As a lesult of the discovery a German
scientific expedition has been fitted out
to explore tho interior of Madagascar in
search of a living aepyoinis. If it is
found and captured thcie will be an exciting time, not only for the hunters, but
for naturalists throughout tho world. It
ia tho laigest bird that ever existed.
"Governor of Gibraltar ?"
The King's bhbhday leview at Gibraltar this year, says The London Daily
Graphic, had an additional inteiest in
the visit of the Governor of Algeeiras
and "Gibraltar, now temporal lly in the^
hands of the Bntish"—such is lus title—■
and^General Chaccl, the commandant of
San Roque distnct. These officers, avIio
Avere accompanied .by a bnlliant stall,
landed from a Spanish gunboat at the
Ragged Stall, AA-herc a guard of honor
and a troop of Spanish Iancei3 awaited
them. At the palace they were received by Sir George White, V.C., aud a
procession Avas formed to the noith
tiont. Here, in holloAV squ-uc, Aveie
draAvn up 5,000 blue-jackets and niaiincs
and the tioops of the garrison, (i,000
strong. Aftei riding doAvn t-ne lines,
the Governors and then combined stalls
returned to the saluting point to Avitncss
tho "feu-dc-joie," which av.is folloAvcd by
three cheers for his Majesty and an impressive salute of twenty-one guns from
tho galleries 500 feet up in the face of

Miss Terry Will Not Appear.
London, after all, says Mi. T. 1".
O'Connoi in his Mainly About I'c -pic,
will not have the plensuie ot seeing Uiu
Kllcn Teny act ivith Sir Jloin y In nig
in Dante. Sir Henry will, of couise, produce M. Sardou's play duiing tin Dnuy
Lane season, but he also intend* it to
be the chief attraction of his Amei ic.m
lour. Now tlie drama, as niay easily
be understood from the subject, has not
a part of sufficient importance to tempt
Miss Terry to undeigo the anxiety and
fatigue of crossing the Atlantic. She
has, therefore, definitely abandoned tho
idea of appearing Avith Sir Henry in its
production. Playgoers, hoAvever, are
not Avithout consolation in the disappointment caused by her decision, smco
there are very authoritative rumois for
the statement that our most impoitant
and popular actress will shortly be scon
either in a piece written expressly for
her, or in ji jeries of revivals.

which is more effective than'tlie musket

evolved the repeating rifle of to-day,

A great many people Avere sorry tc
hear, a little AA-hile ago, that old "Pug,'
the Central Park, Ncav Yoik, police
hoise, was to be sold by auction. Foi
fourteen years he 'had done service in the
j polica depaitment, and dining that time
had stopped innumerable runaways, scv
oral of them on his OAvn account, havinc
started Avhen his rider avbs absent anc
having caught the reins of the, runaAvaj
in his teeth. "He caught three hundrer
and fifteen during the first four years,'
said his master. "Then I lost count.'
But old age had rendered "Pug" no long
er equal to his arduous duties, and it
Avas de'cieed that he be sold. Those ,whc
knew him AArere> afraid he might fall intc
harsh or inconsiderate hands.' Happily
however, the fear Avas groundless. A

Here is, to my ijiind, says M.A.P., tho
finest story of the (King's unbounded
sympathy for the sufleiing3 of his subjects that, has yet come to light. A
young dressmaker av.vs threatened with
consumption,' foiloAving upon long and
dangcious chest trouble, and Avas left
ncqily 'destitute. The doetois advised
her to obtain admittance to an open-
air home to undeigo a couise of tieat-
ment. Meanwhileishe ivas taken into a
convent and devotedly mused by tho
nuns; but, unfortunately, all their ci-
foits to get her admitted into a bono
of the kind'Avere quite fruitless. Then
the gnl,' learning that tlie King .Avas
patron of one ol these institutionsi on
the south coast, resolved secretly to
write to hi hi and plead for his assistance. About a fortnight later a gentleman called at the convent and asked to
see her. He gave no name/ and at'fiist
he as told that she was too ill to see
him. He then , explained that it was
necessary for him to see her, as he had
come to inquire -into her case, and as to
the desirability of sanding her to 'an
open-air home for the treatment of ,con-
sumption- She was aided doAvnstairs,
and he questioned her as to what 'the
doctors nad said, and then inquired to
whom she had applied for help. She
mentioned several names, and at last
hesitatingly admitted that she had Avritten'to the King. 'He then informed her
that he.had come from the King to inquire into her case, as his Majesty kad
noticed her" letter and wished to help
her. After further inquiries eA'erything
was satisfactorily arranged, and the girl
was sent for a'prolonged period to the
home, with the result that her health
was 'greatly benefited, and that she has
'since been able i to return to work.
" The Royal Actors.
' Though tho fee' for a "command"
play at Whitehall was only £20, says
The St. James' Gazette, the generous
George delighted the players by paying
them £250 for "their trouble in only
seven times acting," - f and the * Lord
Chamberlain of the day took, charge of
"the household music, the'wax- lights
and a 'chaise-mai ine to carry^ tha
moving wardiobe to every play." In
earlier reigns the court had its OAvn
players, and it is i elated that the King's
playeis in the reign of the last EdAvard
dressed up like biids for a piece called
"Aesop's Crow." -The players were as
much a part of the royal household as
the ladies-in-waiti' *, and "Che Queen's
Company" of Elizabethan pla^iers ,had
each a royal stipend of £3 03. 8d pel

- Pen Picture of Viljoen. ' •
Of General, Viljoen,1  whose   splendid
speech at Queen's   Hall,   London, some
time ago, was given in The Globe, M.A.P.
says:—A'tall, well-knit man, of thirty
odd years, bronzed of face and bi nad.of
shoulder,  withe a  close-cropped    beard,'
verging-1 to a point—giving the appearance of an    "imperial"—and    a f dark
brown moustache,' such is r Goneral Ren
Viljoen.     He would pass ivery Avell'for
a Parisian artist, but a Parisian artist
who speaks very,, good English, indeed,
with only the slightest foreign    accent.
He is a "progressive" Boer, 'and would
be Radical in English politics.    He was
dead against the war and those who favored it,  thus incurring many    rebuffs
from Mr.  Kruger's entourage.      He is,
however, a patriotic Boer, and is Avork-
ing strenuously  on  behalf of  those  of
his people- who are soiely in need of a
helping hand.    Geneial Viljoen is a remarkably   modest  man,    speaking    de-
preeiatingly, when he is foiccd to speak,
of his many fine militaiy exploits  during the late war.    It is on record how
at   Vaalkranz   he  rescued  a  Boci   gun
from the British, single-handed, scampering acibss an open plain aviUi it amidst
a, ventable hail of bullets.   I was told
by a peisonal fiiend of his that he -simply  docs  not knoAV Avhat physical  lear
