Admiral Togo's torpedo flotilla opened  the action by boldly steaming in under the shore batteries and successfully placing a number of mechanical mines at the mouth of the   harbor.    Then following was a  most  desperate bow to bow encounter between torpedo  boat destroyers,  in  which the Japanese appear to ' have  scored a clear victory, the  Russian  craft turning  to   flee   with   many  boats more or less damaged.

The advance  of the vast army and   the  immense  amount  of supplies is  ueeessarih  dow. but it is sure and overwhelming.    As the advance is  made, the  lines are   left  amply   protected   in  iherear, providing an   un-interrup-  ted source of communicati.)u   with  ihe base   of supplies.    Slowly   hut  surely the Russians are advancing  into the heart of the enemy's country. ' If they cannot  be  prevented  from advancing,   neither can   they  he turr.ed afterwards."

It is declared hardly con-  conceivable Scaudanavia   has  any  designs of possibly taking ��� advantage of Russia's difficulties   to   try  and   retrieve ���  Finland    from   the  ��� realm of the Czar, but that the Naval  and 'Army   preparations  nov\  going forward in Sweden point    t�� -  a   decidedly    tin-friendly    aspect.  There is a possibility of Russia  addressing a note  of protest"against  the display of military  preparation  at this time, which, if is  declared,  is being done so  as  to  strengthen  the hands of Japan, as showing "reliance and tin-warranted faith in the  final triumph of Japanese arms,'  Chefoo,- ^ r8th.���While   entering   .

London. Feb. 1.���Russian diplomacy has proved as skillful and' astute as over, aud has succeeded in  placing Japan in a difficult and| em-  Jjarrassing position. Although the reply made to Japan's last note includes tho draft of a treaty substantially conceding, Japan's demands as regards. Corea, the effect  of,-il on Manchuria is by no meant!  so satisfactory. It nominally concedes China's sovereignty over tin;  northern province, but also contains  a detailed ' statement of Russia's  claims and interests so stated that  a recognition of them would practically conccdo to Russia a similar control over Manchuria to Unit- which  England now exercises over -Egypt,,  Should this treaty be ratified it.-in  fact, gives' Corea to' .1 apan and  Manchuria  to  Russia.  Th�� quostlon that, now confronts  Japanese statesmen is. Whether or  not tho position is such as to'justifv  a declaration of war? Great Britain  has thrown tho weight of- her influence on tho oido of pence, und the  latest advices from Tokio indicate  that her wishes are likely to bo .'respected by tho .Japanese ���Government. It is felt, however, that the  rupture is only postponed, and that  tho arrangement now proposed does  not contain material for a permanent treaty of peace. But to < avert  the immediate outbreak of war will  relieve the present'tension and al'-.  fords time' for future negotiations  and developments. This in present  circumstances is a-great gain, and  socms to  be pretty  well assured.

Ail that long night Ulmont Ulvesford paced the library fighting with  honor, love, truth and loyalty, the  fiercest battle moi tal had ever been  tolled upon to face.  ' There ,wero no words to express the  horror with which he gazed upon the.  bitter fruit of that fatal wooing; un-  ���eonsciously he had b.ighted tho lives  of two women��� one he loved with  ���all hu soul, sweet, trusting Loraine;  the oiher was his wronged young wife,  j^horn he had sworn to the dying to  protect. How could he choose between  them?  That night many a silve'r thread  found its way into his fair, clusteiing  bair.'Twice Loraine had sent lor him.  "Say 1 am busy with important Totters, Zack," he said to the servant who  delivered  the   iness-'ge.  Xhe man looked in wonder at the  ftaggard face of his young'master, us  be closed  the door softly after  him.  Ulmont Uivesford resumed his walk  ' Za.ee to face  with  the horrible orime  jrhich shadowed   his   life.   Again   tho  jsrvant tapped  g. nt!y  as the dour.  "If vyou  please, sir, Mrs.   Ulv&sford  ��y�� ber beat? aches, and she is waiting for you." i  A sudden' impulse swept orer Ulmont to go to her; hut he checked it  ���uickly.  "No," .he muttered; "there must be  bo wavering in the path of duty. Say  I cannot come, I am very busy, she  freed not wait for me," he command-  ��d wearily; "do not disturbime again."  TJhe man walked away, wondering  what had come over the young master.  Toward morning  th* library     bell t  rang furiously.  "Zack, Zack," cried .Ulmont, distractedly; "you must -not tempt me,  tool I must act like a man of honor. I havo never flinched from a  terrible ordeal���I must not now. You  tad I -are going away, Zack; I am  driven from he.ro by a terr.'blo crime  I cannot toll you more. Pack the valises 'quickly, bring tho carringi  uround by tho park gate; let me  k.-tow at onco ���when all is in readiness." !  The preparations were 'soon completed.  Ulmont TTlvcftford leaned his heat!  wearily against , (he mantel, gazing  'round tho room  for tho last'tinio.  "Bettor I/nralno should learn -to  flospiso mo," ho sigliod, "than sully  {or one- instant hot- spotless 'honor."  illo dared not think of lzetta.  ''.No, no��� I must Jo.-ivo homo at  ��noo und forover. 1 shell never look  upon their faces more." ,  A great yearning came over him to  ��co his child, but tho thought he put  liiickly from him. -;     s  Ho hoard (he trampling feet on the  thijk carpets of I.o/aine's apartments  dv or head, yet he quite forgot io  think it an uniABii'il occurrence at thr  dead of night.    ,  Ilis oveicoat lay on his arm and his  valise at his foot; he was impatient  ��t the'unaccountable dejny; ho had 'intended to be far aWay from Boston  when dayhgiht  overtook him.  The  carriage   stood   in' waiting   at  the  park   gate.   Zack  had      scarcely  itored    his  luggage   under    the seat  when   a heavy hand was laid on his  moulder,    and  a   foreign  voice ask-  id:  "Is this  Ulvesfcrd    'Place?"  Too astounded tc speak, Zack   nod-  led his head. .- '     ,  ' "Is  your   master   v-itiin?"  "Why, of ccurse," answered Zack;  'where pise would he be'at this time  >f night?-*  There were two cloaked strangers.  .Sack saw a strange smile pass between them.  "There is some mystery here," said  ihe < stranger, indicating the carriage. ~ , .' '','-'-'��  "Not that T know of," answered  Jack, tartly.  "Perhaps it  is   t|he custom  of   the  tountry,'then, '-to  hav,e-a   , carriage  itanding at a gentleman's gate, ready  *Zor use, after midnight, ehf"  "I reckon my master knows his  FWn  business,"   retorted  Zack.  Again he noticed the same strange  jmile pass between the strangers.  "Mr. 'Ulvesford 1 anticipates a trip  nbroad?" asked one oi them, interrogatively.  *I 'say it's none of your affairs/  laid Zack, Irascibly;'"if "anybody asks  ��ou, just you tell thorn you don't  know."  "Not bo  fast,   my  good man,"   interposed the stranger;  "supposing   I  4o know?"  "Eh!" said _ Zack,  surprisedly.  "My "business   here   to-night   is    to  tell your master  he need not go."  Zack dropped  the Whip he held  in  Us hand in utter amazement.    '  "You don't;say, so!" he ejaculated.  ���"Yes," responded the stranger; "you  feave notidod your  master is greatly  yorried of late,  have^ou not?"  "Oh, Lord bless you, yes, sir; he's  jjean broke up."  "Exactly," chuckled the man softly, rubbing the palms of his hands  together; "I have come to lift "that  trouble from your master's mind,  By good man. I want you to  lead the way to where your master is  waiting, if you please; my friend nnd  I will follow:"  "I will go and announce you first."  "Quite unnecessary; it will be all  right, my good man, your master is  ixpecting us;  time  is valuable."  Still Zack was not wholly satisfied;  se had misgi zings. No thought  >t the terrible consequences came to  faithful old Zack as he answered,  bowing low  before  them:  "If that is the case, gentlemen, I  /rill conduct you  to him at once."  Ho led the way down the long  jraveled walks and through tho dim,  *-M�� vo<-ridors. their footfulls making  no sound on  the velvet carpet.  They reached the library door. Zack  threw it open wide with a low bow.  Ulmont Ulvesford, his traveling  duster and rug thrown over his arm,  his valise at his feet, still leaned his  head upon his arm, against the mantel; he.did   not  even  raise his head  not. guilty 'of the citaige you bring  against me; 'tis true, a duet was  fought between lUvilh Hampton'and  myself, but I swear to you I left  him with .but a mero scratch on, his  right   hand."  "That is not for us to judge," answered  the  olfleets  doggedly.  At that moment tho door was flung  open, and Mrs. Loriinur, her eyes  red and'swoJJen with weeping, swiftly outerod the room.  She saw tie officers in their strange  foreign dress and Ulmont��� in his  traveling A gaib sLanding between  them. ' x  "Ulmont," she whispered, pointing  to tho officers, "what do they wish  here?"  Ulmont was frightened at the terrible calmness of her voice.  "What do they wiih? answer ine,"  she commanded. , , r  . Slowly tho officer stepped forward.  "He Is wanted in Switzerland, madam; we ore come to escort him thither." ���;  They all read the terrible question  In her eyes, aud they pilied Ihe  proud, wliile-haiied lady before them,  as they continued in a   low voice;.  "For tho murder of Utxilh Hampton in a   duel."  "Afy God I" cried tho mother, the  ,tci.i6 rolling down her furrowed  cheeks; "and in tho roam -ibo'vb his  wife, imy only child lies dyingl Oh,  Ulmn;itl" she wailed, "tell me this  new Borrow ia not true;.

Thanksgiving Day gratitude is a  Efood thing, but everyday gratitude is  better. The one- may be merely a  mood in life; the otMcr must be a mode  of life. It is the difference between  ' r. sentiment idealized and a principle  realized.  A sense c-f personal    obligation  to  GckI is not common, even among the  bc'st of men.   They have'to go so far  .   afield to   find it that their excursions  ire  infrequent.    The   fact    that    our  blessings    are    shared,   by so    many  , weakens our sense of personal obligation.    I  recognize the benefits of sun  and shower and changing seasons, but  I reason thiat I might die to-morrow  without' affecting' the   beneficent   pro-  ,   gramme.    I   walk  on   pavements   and  cross  bridges  without a    thought- of  gratitude  to  the  municipality.    Gratitude has an aversion to long journeys,  , anci commonly avails itself of the nearest stopping place.    I am' grateful  to  ,- the teacher who  taught me tlie''trutlil  but I seldom see as far as  the great  Scientist who realized that in Iiis  discoveries he was  but    thinking  God's  thoughts  after   Him.   ' Few   have   the  piety and patience to reflect that  Back of the loaf Is the snowy f'.iur,  -   And back of tho Hour the mill;-  4jid back of the   mill ts the wheat and  '    the shower,  And tho sun, and tho Father's will.  The secret of everyday'thanksgiving  b to find Gcd within before we seek  Him .without.    "The heavens    do  dc  dare the glory of God," and we ought  to know this  better  than    David  did.  But neithier the heavens nor the earth  have such a revelation of God as   is  lo    be'    discovered    within  ourselves.  .Through     differences     of   perscnalily  each one has a    relation to all    these  externalities which 'is  unique.    In individuality  we  find  our personal  link  ���vith God.    The same sun shines upon  the    millions    of  earth, but    no  one  among thfem a'll sees it just as you do.  Truth belongs   to, the race, but the  ���Impression  which  it makes  upon you  -Is individual.    It is the same sun and  the  same  truth;   the  difference  is   in  ������jfou.     Paul   gives   the  secret _cf  daily  .thanksgiving when- he says:  "By thle  .grace of God I am what I am."    By  * logical excursion through the jungle  of prehistoric centuries I find a first  cause. Through Nature I may get to  Nature's God. The study of history  will reveal to me a Governor. But it  fe within myself I find my Father.  Thanksgiving Day gratitude toe  fcften results in complacent blindness.  But with a realization of God within  fehere is no occasion to close our eyes  lo aught without. In the aspirations  and longings of cur souls is registered  the suggestion of what wc may become. 'The disappointments which  ptrengthten our moral sinews, the baffling problems which challenge our initiative and develop our resourceful-  cess, the sorrows which bring the fel-  Ipwship of suffering wilh the Man cf  Sorrows, all of these things may k-  tome the occasions for thanksgiving.  It is the inventory of our souls which  reveals that we were not made to live  onto ourselves. We hear a voice say-.  ��� Ing, "As the Father sent me into the  .world, so send I you." Wilh this commission we turn to the world, thrilling  ���jvithi the ardor of the highest service.  'And the plaint of the people becomes  to us the voice c-f God ca'lling us into  * joy which is more-genuine than that  ef receiving. In the capacities of our  souls we learn that such powers as  aympathy, imagination, will, have been  given us to make us co-workers with  God, and we turn to thk world to find  a field which is white to the harvest.  rhrough Jesus Christ we learn that  ���ur personalities have been designed  M a point of union between God and  nan. It is the realization of this which!  rightly relates us to all things. When  tot know that God works within, it  Is not difficult to believe that he works  without. We cease to be mastered by  externalities and become masters of  She circumstances of life, making them  tributary to development, usefulness  and joy. Hear thte proclamation which  lecures everyday thanksgiving:���"Now  are we the sons of God, and itdoth  Bot yet appear what we shall be.  moiai lor' "ai; Miss Corellt's books.',  A. complete set was sent, specially  bound,,and was graciously acknowledged.

Mincemeat���Half  a  pound  of    currants  picked    and    washed,    one-half  ! pound of sultanas lightly chopped, one-  ,' quarter pound of candied peel mixed,  i one-quarter pound  of sugar, the rind  ' and juice of a lemon, one-half pound  of finely minced suet, one-half pound  of finely  chopped  apples  when  cored  and pec-led, mixed spice to taste, and  half a nutmeg grated.  Beat all well together in a basin, "and  stir in one glass of sherry and a gill  of brandy. Many old-fashioned cooks  add meat to the mincemeat ; il meat is  used, a piece of finely-minced boiled  tongue will' be found best. Some  cooks add minced almonds; Uicse arc  better pounded with a little rose water.  The patty pans should be greased with  a lump of butter, and lined with the  finest of paste, the mincemeat put in  and covered with ��� paste, then nick  round neatly. Put into a quick oven  for five minutes, then the heat slackened for a quarter of an hour will bake  them.     Turn out of the tins at once.   .  Fried nuts���These are dainty little  additions to the luncheon or supper  table. Good Housekeeping furnishes  the recipe. Cold cooker farina, oat-'  meal or other cereal is reheated and  seasoned with butter,'salt ..and pepper.  When cool enough .to shape with -ihe  hands into small balls, dip in crushed  walnuts, then in beaten egg, again in  walnuts and fry in deep fat.  Apple 'sauce���Everyone knows how  to make; apple sauce of a sort, but the  best way is to first peel the apples, one  at a time, then cut each one into  quarters, then core and cut into  chumps, and throw into a clean saucepan into which has been put a gill of  water, two lumps of sugar, and a mite  of lemon peel, put on lid tightly, set it  over a small jet of gas or near a bright.  clear fire, and watch them boil, then  draw, them back and allow them to  simmer until quite a mash. - Stir round  many times whilst cooking, then pour  all into a turctn. This is the only  way to make good apple sauce, hut  you must do it yciirseJf. Cook pce'i-  the apples thickly, then removes half  the apple taking away the core, leaves  them to boil, bubble and burn, whil;  she attends to something else ; she  can't help it, but-, then yon see the  sauce is spoiled an<l wasted.  Preparing beans ��� Prof. Harry  Snyder of the ���Minnesota Experiment  Station of the Department of Agriculture says that housekeepers could vastly increase the digestibility of beans by  parboiling them with .1 little soda, in  the proportion of half a teaspoonful of  .baking soda to a potmd of beans and  two quarts of water. The ordinary  white navy bean, he asserts, while it  contains when dry 22.5 of protein, or  muscle and energy, is very hard to digest, and taxes the digestive apparatus  more than almost any other vegetable  food.  Horseradish Sauce���This sauce also,  must be made by the wife or  daughter. The horseradish should  be put into water foT a night,  then scrubbed. When clean and dry  scrape off the thinnest of skins, and  scrape It from end to end wilh "a piece  of glass. Broken glass is sharp and  cuts it finely. Put the horseradish into a basin with a tablespoonful of made  mustard, a pinch of salt and enough  vinegar to.soak it. When thoroiighly  mixed, pour over about a half gill of  cream, slowly mixing the whole time  with two forks. Sweeten to taste. The  cream will never turn if made in this  manner, then put into a clean  tureen.  Stewed prunes���Stewed prunes have  become a byword and a jest, but if  nicely prepared they are not ridiculous  or worthy of scorn by any means: A  California fruit-growing firm recently  started a competition for a prize recipe  for cookinig this homely dish, and, as  the following won the prize, it may be  supposed to represent a perfect way of  serving in its simplest form this useful,  maligned fruit: Wash one pound of  prunes thoroughly in several waters,  nearly cover with water and let stand  overnight. Simmer on the back of  the stove until tender. Before removing from the firi- and after the cooking process is finished add one large  tablespoonful of sugar.  To Boil Mutton.���Boiled mutton is  not a poetical dish, but it is a good  standby for the family dinner. It appears much oftener on English tables  than on American.

Few people know how to cough properly. ' In fact; it never" occurs to the  ordinary individual that there is a right  way and a wiong way of doing it.  Yet it is a matter of no small importance. If every &igh means a drop  of blood out of the heart, as people  say, every cough means some greater  or less proportion of time knocked off  one's life.  Most people cough as loudly and  forcibly as they can. Seme chronic  coughcrs seem to feel proud of the terrible noise they make. But it is rather  costly noise, for lite simple reason  that it-tears and inflames'the lungs.  The lungs consist of an extraordinarily delicate sponge-like tissue, which  sometimes gets inflamed and choked  with phlegm. When wc try to get rid  of this substance we coiigh.'_1But, obviously, if wc remove it violently we  must necessarily injure the delicate  lung tissue.  Therefore, train yourself to cough as  gently as possible.���New York World.  '   Keep the Shades Up.  The habit of keeping the window  shades down, which is so common a  practice, even when there is no direct  sun'glare on'the window, is a direct  setting at naught of '^physiological  principles which teach us the importance of health, of both body and mind,  of an abundance of light. Sir James  Crichton-Browne, in an address on  light and sanitation, delivered at the  Jubilee Conference of the Manchester  and Salford Sanitary Association, says:  . "I have "spoken of light as purifying our atmospheric environment and  as freeing us from certain superficial  parasitic distempers, and I wish now  to remind you that it has still more  deep and intimate human relations of  a sanitary nature; for light is a necessary condition of mental and bodily  well-being. Its tonic physical effects  are everywhere recognized. All  properly organized men and women  love the light, and it is not merely to  children that darkness brings with' it  a sense of poweriessness, danger and  alarm.  # "Essential for all the purposes of  life, for the supply of oxygen on  which existence depends, light is a  universal stimulus. Falling on the  eyes, it sets up 111 the brain functional activities associated with intellectual and emotional states, and attempts have been made to discriminate the physical effects of its different  elements, and to employ colored light  in the treatment of mental disorders.  These attempts cannot be said to have  been hitherto very successful, but still  it is curious to note that many independent observers���indeed, I believe  all observers who have written on the  subject���have arrived at the same  conclusion, that the blue rays have a  depressing and the red rays an exciting effect on the brain.  "But whatever the therapeutic values of the different rays of light may  be, white light, heaven's own mixture, is the normal physical atmosphere and variations in its intensity  have probably widely diffused constitutional effects."���New York Medical Journal.

"An' mony a ane to yer-  self, Jamie, hut, man  ye'er gled, the new year's na two mecn-  Wtes' auld." ^ ,  Jamie Soutar lived at the extreme end  ef a long, straggling settlement which  extended for about three mile*-through  What in the early fifties was a part ol  the Canadian backwoods. Jamie and a  'aumber of'his neighbors-hnd left their  Ihomes in Scotland to make their way  'in the now world; and with others on  the same errand bent, with whom they  bad ample time lo become well acquainted on the .cniigiant ship during  Us long voyage of ovor uircu months  between Grecnoclc'and Quebec, they, had  gone into the wilderness, each "taking  'up" one of the regulation lots of laud,  or, more fortunate than others, some being able to purchase one or more lots,  with their improvements, from some  earlier settler'whose courage had failed  him.  They had but little, experience to help  them; they knew nolimtg of cither wood-  Waft or farming; they endured privn-  ,tion8 which now would he detuned ini-  iposaible even in the wildest parts'of the  |country; but they persevered with n  atecdy cheerfulness, itntl each year saw  lithe little clearing nl. the.'side of the  ,Btrip of corduroy, which did duty as ti  highway grow linger, their Jog-built  houses more comfortable, nnd their lot  'more endurable.  But while they were, thus engaged in  a fierce struggle, almost for, existence,  'they.never forgot the land they hud left  Ibehind them; it was still "home" to  'them, and nemniiipd so to genera Lions of  {their descendant*. ."Rtvoy had brought  njiwith them the beliefs, the. superstitions,  and the customs, sonic of them good and  ,some otherwise, of the Old - Country.  Still, it may well be the case that these  'things, however objectionable thov may,  jnppear to us in these days, helped them  jin no email'measure, to continue the  'struggle in .the 'face of almost insuperable difficulties.  ���_' Of the customs which doubtless helped  to interrupt the hardship and monotony  lof existence, none was looked forward  {to with more lively anticipation or furnished a more interesting subject for discussion ��� after the event, than those  which centered about; the New' Year.  Work and anxiety and care were for  the time forgotten, and they gave themselves up to the enjoyment of the festive-season, perhaps not always too.  .wisely, but with the hardships and discouragements of their lot, now but a  memory, we may well, when we look  -Upon this part of their experience, say  with Scotland's poet:  "One'point must si ill he  greatly  dark.  ��� The moving, why they do it;  And just as lamely can ye mark   ���  How far, perhaps, they rue it."  The New .Year's celebration began  with the stroke ''o' twal," and as midnight found Jamie Soutur wishing ''a  gudo New Year" to' his next neighbor,  Bandy -udDonald, we cannot do belter  than follow them and gain a picture of  the manner in which they celebrated the  festive, season.  Jamie was provided with a substantial  bottle of whiskey, anu his good wishes  {or his neighbor were sealed by a liberal  asto of it. Thus fortified, Jamie and  Sandy, who was similarly munitioned,  set out for the house of Dugald McTav-  ieh, their next neighbor.  Dugald was a Highlander, full of Celtic fire, and already partially full of  whiskey, when Jamie and Sandy entered  the house without - the ceremony of  knocking at the door. They were Lowland and very deliberate, but Dugald's  welcome was "Ileelan' an' hearty," and  fiven   before   they     had     crossed    the  hreshold.    "It's Chaniic an' Santy, an'  ��� ye'er fery welcome. Oh, yes, an' it's ta  New Year, an' she must pree ta "whus-  koy. Na, na, she'll no use her pottle, /or  she'll be hafin' need for her/ for she will  be gaein' tae Tarn Ancrson, an' Tarn, her  whuskey's no sae gudc but ye'll pe want-  in' what's pettcr."  And Dugald insisted on supplying the-  refreshments out of his own store, for,  If he was not altogether as .prosperous  as some of his neighbors, it was universally admitted that Ihe fault for the  greater part lay in his generous hospitality and readiness to help his friends,  who, ifc is needless to say, wore many.  But tho occasion must bo properly  .celebrated, and so, accompanied by Dugald, who had furnished himself with a  double supply of "usquabao tae nttik up  for Tain Anerson," ns he explained,' they  Lwent on their way to Ihe next neighbor,  I/where much the same greetings were exchanged, and refreshments partaken o.f;  {'then onward to .tho-next; accompanied  iin each case by the last, until at the  iend of the settlement they reached "the  ���big hoose," where dwelt Tarn Anerson.  Tarn was not a favorite. ��� lie was  tmall of stature, with what his neighbors described as a "woiisuned" face, and  an eager, restless manner which led  ,eome of these same neighbors to compare him to a rat running hither and  ithither trying to pick up something oi  Value. Tain had lived, up to the lust  year, in the worst house in the settlement, and hia miserly instincts not only  'stood in the way of doing his neighbors  A good turn when the opportunity of-  Ifered, but led him to keep even his own  'family on a very short, allowance of the  [ordinary comforts of life. Four years  before this particular New Year a young  ���Englishman uought the land adjoining  Tain Ancrson's farm. Ue was possessed  ���;of some money, but no experience. At  great expense he cleared away tho for-  iCflt nnd built a large stone dwelling,  which he furnished throughout in. a man-  incr that would have been, considered  .luxurious.'even'in the Old Country. Tw.o  'years later, with his resources exhauat-  ru:uisin..r!i, i<-   i _..-,u.i <uj .i ui .  ot its value.  Tarn was n yarn mini, and his a-fl.  tiori -,vas now lo he lool.ed upon by hi-  neighbors as-the "baiiiip," or the ne  knowlcdged head of the seftlcm'"i!, hni  his miserly instincts, lluough which -lie  fell even to the d'-ptli of watering the.  whiskey which he ofl'e:ed them, a capital offence in Dugald's eyes, earned foi  him their contempt 'nnd''even ill-will.  But New year's leveled all, and nl  lengi.h the whole "o' the men folk" ol  the settlement were, gathered in the "hi,.-  fcoose."  about  five  o'clock of the Nev  gear's morning. ,     ,      , ,    .,.   c    ,  Tam Anerso". arrayed in bis Sunday  "blacks," was seated in n capacious arm-,  chair when his visitors arrived. ,.0n the  table before him were some of the decanters which, in the days of the unfortunate Englishman, were filled with costly wines, out now contained a modicum  of whiskey and a great deal of water.  Being the first New Year since he had  come into possession of the "big hoose,"  h�� Jwwl fa **��� '*'" ���">���'' '-'* ronJre i!��e ccca-  rton tiie'starting point in the new relations he proposed to establish between  himself and his neighbots. Rising from  his chair somewhat unsteadily, for he  bad partaken during the night of a private 'supply of whiskey which contained  much less water twin that provided for  his neighbors, he began a sol speech  which had cost him a great deal of  thought.  "Ma frcens," he began, "it's verm kind  o' ye ,tae come in to show yo'er respect  an' ve'er appreciation o' my puse.etion."  "Hoot, awa wi' ve'er havers," cried  Jamie Soutar;. "it's* the'Now .Year, an'  no ye'er poseclioii ava that's brocht us.  Let's hue a drappic on it."   ' -   ,  go Jam's speech was cut short, and  he proceeded to treat his guests to the diluted refreshments, which, however, met  with small favor.  "She'el pe thinkin' it wass a fery  great peety lo hnf Ine drink so fery  much wattcr, for ta lectio whiskey tat  wass in it," was Dugald's' comment when  .they liad tasted of it, and to take away  Ihe ill taste it, was unanimously voted  that they try some of .their own providing.  Tam made divers attempts to get ofi  his speech, but without avail, and with  each interruption there was a fresh recourse to the "supply of whiskey. At  nine o'clock of that New Year's morning Tam Anerson was seated in his big  chair repeating in maudlin sentences the  set speech which he had prepared; Dugald jMcTavish was dancing the "Ileelan'  fling," Sandy McDonald was. challenging  all and sundry io n disputation on the  question of predestination, Jamie Soutar  was in a corner singing "John Anderson.  My Jo John," two others were fighting  and the rest of them were asleep.  Thus 'was the advent of the New  Year celebrated, and the event for many  days afterward recalled with much satisfaction. Sandy and Jamie and Dugald  and all their genet a lion have long since  passed away, ai'd their children's children are now in their place. The forest  has given way to broad fields, and the  log houses to stately, dwellings. Again  the last hour of the old year approaches  Through the windows of the village  church the lights shine out, and within  are the people, assembled with bowed  head and bended knee, giving thanks foi  the blessings of the old year/and making  supplications for the new; then, as the  bells ring out the tidings that the new  year has come, with grateful thought-  for the past and with hope for the future, their voices rise in the grand Dbx-  ology, "Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow."  Origin of the Names of Countries.  The following countries, it is said.  were originally named by the Phoenicians, the grea'test commercial people in  the world. The names, in tho Phoenician language, signified something characteristic of tiie places which they designate.  Europe signifies a country of white  complexion, so named because the inhabitants were of a lighter complexion  than those of Asia and Africa.  Asia signifies between or in the middle, from the fact that the geographers  placed it between Europe and Africa.  Africa signiliei the land of ..corn or  ears. It was celebrated for its abundance of corn, and all sorts of grain.  Siberia signifies thirsty or dry���very,  characteristic.  Spain, a country of rabbits or conies.  It was once so infested with these animals that it sued Augusta for an army  to destroy them.  Italy, a country of pitch, from its  yielding great quantities of black pitch.  '.Calabria; also, for the same reason.  Gaul, modern ���France, signifies yellow-  haired, as yellow '.hair characterizes its  -inhabitants.  The .English of Cnleuonia is a high hill.  This was a rugged, mountainous province in Scotland.:  Hibcniia is utmost, or last habitation;  for beyond this westward the Phoenicians never extended their voyages.  Britain, the country of tin, great quantities being found on it and adjacent islands. The Greeks called it Albion,  which signifies in the Phoenician tonguo  either white or high mountains, from tho  whiteness/ of', its shores, or the high  rocks on the western coast.      7  Corsica signifies a woody place.  Sardinia signifies the footsteps of men,  which it resembles.   v  Syracuse, bad savor, so called from-tho  unwholesome marsh on which it stood.  Rhodes, serpents or dragons,, which it  produced in abundance.  Sicily, the country of grapes.  Scylla, the -whirlpool of destruction.  Aetna signifies a furnace, or dark or  smoky.���"Wavcrloy Magazine."  in politics it takes tliiec to make n  bargain: The victim, Ihe man who makes  it and the legislntuic.

I don't want to brag  about it,- but you'll be "surprised. Don't  leave Canada without seeing it. .We've  got a newspaper there, too, that will interest you."    '  You go. ' .  It is, indeed, a thriving township, and  the newspaper is a fact. The day you  arrive there have been big happenings  in Bear's Head Creek. Behold the front  page of the paper. \.  Across four columns, in black type���  "Local firm gets a thousand-dollar contract. Contractor O'Grady, in open competition, secures order for erecting new  hotel. Successful competitor speaks  with 'Gazette' man, and expresses confidence in the future of Bear's Head  Creek".  Lest it be thought that I am attempting to poke' a poor form, of fun at these  little Londons struggling for recognition,  let me say right here that I know no  finer, no more inspiriting sight than is  afforded by the spectacle of the almost  Homeric efforts of the average Canadian  township of smaller size to justify its  glorious faith in the future.    .  "Here," says the man of the new  town, "is a spot which by Providence,  by natural position, by extraordinary  conditions, and the proximity to tho  Canadian Pacific Railway is destined to  be the Chicago of the West. Let us, the  early fathers of the city, prepare the  ground for future generations."  So the man of the new town sits on  the snake-fence, puffing at his pipe,  ireaming dreams, peopling the mellow  cornfields with phantom millions; erecting on thi3 patch a sky-scraper, on that  a mammoth store, and sacrificing with  some regret, but withal a stern sense of  duty, the little church and the post-  office shack to make place for a ten-  storied hotel.  And of their faith shall they in a decree be justified. Not all of them shall  be citizens of a new Chicago���a poor  enough ideal, God wot!���but they shall  greatly grow. They shall hit higher  than thoy aim, because that is how the  ideal works out; but in the meantime,  their never-ceasing light to thrust.into  fame and place the town of thoir adoption constitutes as fine a display of true  patriotism as one may well wish to see.  ���Edgar Wallace in London "Mail."  Her Restoration to Health Causes  a Sensation in the Medical  '   World.  Doctors Gave Her up, but' Dodd's  Kidney Pills Cured Her  Completely.  ' Collingwood, Ont., Jan. 25.���(Special)���While Canada stands aghast at  the terrible inroads Bright's Disease  is making on the' ranks of the brightest and best of her citi/.ens; while  the medical profession, stand helpless  before . the dread ., destroyer of life,  Collingwood has among her citizens  one who knows all its terrors, who  has been carried down by it till the  poitals ,of death were open to receive  her, and' who to-day is a, strong,  healthy, happy woman���aj woman  who knows. Bright's Disease'in all  its hideousness, but who fears it not,  because  she knows its cure.'  Mrs. Thomas,. Adams is this lady's  name, and.she-has now been a resident of Collingwood" for a year and  a half. Before that she lived in  Burke's Falls, ' where she is widely  known and highly respected. Mrs.  Adams feels 'it her duty to spread  the good news all over Canada, all  over the world, that she has found a  cure, for Bright's Disease, and that  that cure is Dodd's Kidney Pills.  a. MRS.   ADAMS'   STORY.  "Yes," she-said, when interviewed  regarding her case, "my,, friends can  tell von how terribly ill I was. My  doctor pronounced it Bright's Disease and Sciatica, hut I got no relief from, anything he gave me. It  was Dodd's Kidney Pills that drove  away the terrible disease, raised me  from my bed of suffering; and made  me a well   and happy woman.  "I was. for years troubled with a  pain in my back, at times I would  have to keep my bed.. , In. March,  1900, I got so bad with,pains in my  back and hip. that I was more helpless than an infant, and at times gave  up'all hope'of getting well. I had  no power of my back or limbs.  "I was for eight months an invalid,  and my sufferings ' during that . time  were something ��� too terrible for  words to describe.- My doctor said  I had Bright's Disease, but.he could  do nothing to give me relief.  .HOW THE CURE CAME.  "It was then a friend of my husband induced me to try Dodd's Kid-  nev Pills. I had no faith in them,  for I never expected to get better.  But I tried-,them, and I thank God  that' I did. " They brought me relief almost from the start, and alter taking three boxes,. I was able to  do my own work and look after my.  children. .  "It is three years since I started  using Dodd's Kidney Pills, and I have  not had a return of my trouble  since When I feel a little oat of  sorts I get a box of Dodd's Kidney  Pills, and they drive all the pains  away." ' - ���   ���_       , ,      ,  It is needness to say Mrs. Adams  friends ' all use Dodd's Kidney Pills.  They find that a remedy that, cures  Bright's Disease easily disposes of all  the earlier stages of Kidney eom-  plaint.  Aftermath of a Tragedy.  mmmtm  j'.:'.....V-  Cold Comfort.

The souvenir-hunliiig Yankee sometimes takes a fancy to queer things and  pays well for them. The editor of  "Truth" comments thus upon the latest  development of the souvenir craze:  "At last. The Government of Servia  will not let the American wiio wanted  to buy the furniture of King Alexanders  and Queen Draga's bed and wardrobe  rooms at1 the Belgrade Konak'havc them'.  ���He offered successively 300,000 fr., 400,-  000 fr., and'went up to 500,000 fr. Kih��j  Peter and his Ministers think it would  never do to let them be taken over tho  States, and then possibly over Europe,  as a show. This is the Tfirat time they  have evinced a sense of the shame attached to the midnight enterprise which  raised Peter, to the throne, and Maschin  and the 'Ministers to their present grand  situations. : But as Queen Nathalie inherits all her son's fortune, those who  slaughtered him and Draga cannot prevent her bringing Alexander's personal  foods and chattels to,,- the hammer,  hould the American persevere in his  bid of 500,000 fr., he will place the Government at Belgrade in an awkward position. They are, as everyone knows,  desperately hard up. As Nathalie is1 on  the best terms with the court of Russia,  Peter will hardly treat her lawyer cavalierly, and if the furniture be bought in  by the Government the Queen Dowager  will come down on it for payment. Peter doubtless wants it to bo destroyed.  ���This is of a piece with ,'A little water  clears us of the deed' of Lady Macbeth."

Why not call it the ag9  of superlatives! -J_l  Nowadays  the  average  person  neve^  strikes  a   balance.    Ho   forces   up   tho  scales with  one hand or  presses then  ,down with the other, and promptly aiq  'nounces that the thing weighed Is thj  best or the worst.   Nothing is just good  or merely bad.   It must be given a su*  perlative.    Thus two lovers are alwavi  the happiest people in the world, or thj  unhappicst.   Happy and unhappy would?  n't begin to express their feelings.   Toki  the phrasing of ordinary letters betweei  women.   Cutest, finest, prettiest, ugliea|  nnd such words abound on every pag-1  As 'a whole,  the  missive  is  a  perfe  jungle of superlatives.   Letters of frien  ship between men are little better.

Things seen faro as royally o  as meanly, according to the way they &A  feoted the writer.

What these writerf h'  would do without the word "mostn ��,  arouses a' curiosity- that will never bn, H .  ^satisfied. The' "most disastrous" firf fj'{/���  may not have caused over a thousand; jfe',^  dollars* loss; the ,"worst" storm may, ffiFl��|  have confined its capers to blowing dowq Jtdf;  a few fence rails and turning over m f^J  cowshed; the "most" prominent citizen! |W]5]  may have been just a plain storekeeper/ j| *i;  and tho "most diabolical crime" mayl^ ||-^|  have been an-ordinary butchery, but the1 1; l'  country correspondent has the superla^ j,,  tivo habit and thinks it is .part of hi4  duty to go the limit on everything. A*  a rule, the editor who reads the conyj  carefully removes the superlatives. Ofj  ton ho warns the correspondent, but the  offending continues. In the age ofsuJ  perlatives the man who uses them is a  slavo to environment. i  Shift   the   scone   to   the     metropolis  There  even  the  bootblack  puts out  at  sign reading, "Best shine  in the city.'n  Go  higher, and nearly  every  merchant,  has the "best goods    at    the cheapest,  price."
