The night .was almost pitch dark,  but he know his way and never faltered. On past the dark, closed  warehouses and pattern-shops, over  the bridge and down the railway,  past huge stacks of coal and iron;  now over a. waste piece of ground  scattered with giant cog-wheels,  ships' anchors, old boilers, cylinders  and the like.  Hist���someone is coming this way.  ITe dives under a waggan, jumps a  low wall, and finds himself beside  the casting-shop, which seems to revel in the hum'and throb aud glow  of the night's work. About twelve  feet from the ground there are largo  gaps with iron bars across to take  the place of windows. lfe climbs  upon a heap of scrap-metal and peers  through'one of these. jt is a familiar scene to him���the Jong shop  with its earthen floor littered  moulding-boxes and tool;;  strange machines.

Ho puis on a pair of blue  glasses' and looks into these, roaring  furnaces; then blows a. whistle,' A  monstrous overhead crane rattles  along just under the roof and lowers  an enormous bucket-shaped cauldron  beneath the level of the furnace tap.  Another whistlo, scarcely heard  above the thud, of hammers, and a  stream of molten steel is rushing in  to that gigantic bucket.' A dozen  workmen prepare with long , iron  bars to steady it. None of that  white-hot liquid stream must escape  and strike anything damp or else ���  Sefton. Hodder, sharply outlined  against the blinding glare of the  molten'steel, smiles grimly as ' the  sparks fall., in. , brilliant showers  round him, and little thinks that at  the moment he forms a vivid human  target. For Jack Simpson, black  hatred in'his heart,' is glancing  along the barrel of his revolver,  with his fingor. trembling" on the  trigger and his' soul trembling on  1he verge of that awful precipice,  murder !

The drawings are there.  Who can guess what card Hodder  will play when faced with a climax?  Best to come armed, anyway. And  if the pistol has-to be used, why,  what a feeble spark it will be amidst  all this roar and flame .and clanging  stir.      How  terrified   Jess   would  be  if  Ah, he will soon be away now.  The furnaces arc empty and the  bucket, containing many tons of  molten steel, is being carried over to  the mould I Sefton-Hodder , stands  upon an iron box about three feet  trom the ground level, and is ready  to give the final order to remove tho  bucket-plug, ' Then suddenly 'ho  looks up at the chains above and  shouts with horror. One of the  side pivots is "bending, breaking.

Sefton Hodder, looking which way  to ' escape, pauses a moment too'  long. Like a flash the metal surr  rounds the mould he is on and he  stands, as it were, on an iron island amid a lake of white-hot running steel. Above the noise and  confusion ho hears someone screaming '   "Itun  for your lives."  Rim ? Yes, but how can he cross  this burning moat ? The heat is  terrific., He sees the steel forcing a  channel down to number five pit.  which contains water. If it reaches  there���the thought sets him shuddering. Have they all escaped but  him? " Thc'heat is scorching, suffocating, and its will take hours for  this mass of steel to,cool and set���  hours: why, long before that he will  be literally baked alive. -. Will none  of them come to save him? No, no;  they will not,risk the explosion"until  it is too late. The growing fear of  a horrible <, death overwhelms him,  and he screams with ��� terror. ' Then  someone dashes "through the door,  beats his way through the" hands  that try to stop him, runs nimbly  up the foot-ladder, and along the  wide baulks that hold the rails for  the crane." .  ; '  Look, he is clinging now to the  chain. "Lower;'.' he shouts, and  lower he comes; down, down, until  he swings as close .to that terrible  liquid bed as the man ho is trying  to save. "Forward !'���' ' he   roars,  and there is the click of levers, the  hiss of steam, and the rattle of the  ponderous crane. ' "Hold," he  screams, as he lurches forward,  seizes Hoddcr, and clings to him  with wonderful strength. For a  moment it seems as though both  must slip and crash to their doom,  and then, tightly clasped together,  rescuer and rescued, are swung clear  of the burning lake, and on into  safety. And the last thing Sefton  Hodder notes ere ho sinks into unconsciousness is a confused babel of  voices, and above them all someone  loudly clamoring for cheers for  brave Jack Simpson.  son, "is signed by .Sefton Hodder.  Ho deeply regrets, and is full of  gratitude to you for so nobly saving  his life. He says you would have  been justified .in leaving him to his  fate, and he can never sufficiently reward  you." -   '   ' ���  "Poor Hodder.

For  the past four months Mr.    J.  Collier 'has    boen    contributing    to  Knowledge a series of interesting articles     on  the struggle  for existence  in   sociology,     and    in    the    current  number of that publication ho  deals  with the question  of languages   and  dialects.        There   are,    he  tells  us,  over 5000 distinct languages, spoken  amongst   men,   a    fact  ' which    will  conic  as; a surprise   to   Chauvinistic  Britishers,  who  imagine  the English  language', is  all ;bu(,  universal     over,  tho whole surfnee of-the globe.   But  while there    arc    this number of separate, languages," a calculating .prodigy    would bo needed to accurately  compute the number of different dialects    in.use.       In Brazil   there arc  sixty different vocabularies in vogue;  in Mexico the   Ualma    language '  is  broken ,up into 700 dialects;  in Borneo .   there   are   hundreds;     while in  Australasia it is found impossible to  classify the lingual  complexities prevailing.        Generally the number    of  dialects is in ��� inverse proportion   to  the intellectual  culture of the i ovulation.       ' - '  Taking the total of languages at  5000, and assuming no more than  fifty, dialectical, variations, to each,  a total of a quarter-of a million  dialects is reached. In this confusion of tongues all manner of  NUMBERS AND, TENSES, ,  cases and moods,' tones and' inflections strive for predominance,. while  modes of utterance dictated. by differently modified laryngeal organs  struggle, for superiority. But dialects havo j now a tendency to decrease, more especially' among civilized communities where the facilities  for traveling by railway and steamboat mix people up much more than  was ever possible in the days of old,  when inter-communication, was difficult. Savage and partially civili/cd  people, as well as those "isolated ,in  more, or less inaccessible valleys,  from free intercourse with their fellows, still retain their ancient 'dialects, but in nearly every country  speech is becoming more unifrom,  and it is every year less and less  difficult for the natives of one province of the same country to understand the speech of those.of another  province. ���--  And just as dialed s are decreasing  so   are   languages ���becoming  reduced  in number.      French  is  driving back  ail-but  one of the languages spoken  on  its frontiers.     English is     overmastering Scotch,  Welsh  and    Irish,  as  it has already extinguished   Cornish.      In the  Southern  Tyrol     Germanic dialects are retreating    before  Italian.    .On the banks of the-Volga  the  Ural-Ataic .languages  arc  disappearing    before    Russian;  in    Posen  Polish yields to German; while    the  islets of  German  speech  in Bohemia  melt in   Czech.      And so. tho    battle  of speech  goes  on  steadily,   and  naturally until  a  century  hence    there  will probably be left very little more  than four  world-wide  languages     to  fight out .their battle.      In     Central  Europe German will-reign    supreme,  English  will  lord it over  the North  American      Continent,      Australasia  and a  large part of Africa.' Spanish  will dominate  South   America,  while  Russian    or some such .rich  Slavonian  dialect will  blend the  races    of  eastern    Europe    and     central  Asia  into lingual "harmony.

In many respects it is quite an   interesting town.      It is built on   the  loft    bank of the Amur River.      Mr.  Alexander Hosic  describes it  as follows in his useful volume' "Manchuria"   (Metliuen) :   "It is spread    over  a very largo area,  with wide streets'  in   comparatively   good   rcpa-ir,     and  contains    many magnificent  mercantile  houses.      Although  rod   brick  is'  now  taking tho'place of wood,  it is  really a fine oxamplo of tho archi lec  lural value of the.latter, and* one is  surprised   to  find     signboards     over  what.-in  this  country  might  readily  be  taken, for palaces." ���   This is ex- '  iictly how  it strikes, tho visitor, lor. ,  notwithstanding     tho   latter  limitation,     tho  'evidences   of  wealth  arc  groat,^'and ' architecturally   tho' town  is  far   In advance  of oither I-Tabaro-  vsk or Vladivostoclc.

On   a  foto day you marvel at the grandeur  of tho ' illumination, "but  when    you'.*  step  insido and 'expect comfort,    the  emptiness  ol  outward"show   is  soon '  realized.     Do   not   imngino it is    a  tiny place.       On    tho   contrary,     its  population ,oi some 35,000,  not    including a garrison of nearly 6000, is  spread  over  a , very large 'area,   and  tho   streets   of  the   town   are     beautifully .wido and���for Russia���in quite,  good repair.

Or,  what is even  worse,  you may'ibe alloted a room and find,  in the middle of the night you have  to'vacate it owing-to-the arrival'of  the    mail     boat.       -Provisioning is  quite a difi'.cult task here, not   from  dearth    of - provisions, ��� but    rather    ,  from   the exorbitant' prices charged.

A   TERRIBLE  MASSACRE. '  ��� It is'absolutely futile anybody vis-   ���">  iting this town unless  they are prepared to rough  it and struggle,, continually with adverse circumstances.  Clean water for washing purposes is  rare    indeed, " whilst as for a bath,  even the hotels do not all possess a   -  bathroom.      Notwithstanding     these  annoyances,     there are many   points  of interest to be found in and    near  Blagovostclmnsk.     Tho quaintness of  the Amur at this point attracts all  travelers.     At some seasons of     the ' ,  year the" river banks near  the   town  are fully alive with cattle, and there,  is  also  a considerable  movement  o/  timber.'     About    the    end   of "July,  1R90, a     Chincftc   mob sallied   forth    .  from Aigun and  surprised  tho small  Cossack     garrison    that  commanded  the steamer route  between   the  railway stations  of  the  Slrelcnsk     and  Khabartovsk.      Tho  Cossacks    were  panic-stricken,  and     rushed   to     the  Chinese quarter of    the   town,     surrounding the bazaars with an armed  force.      Tho   defenceless    inhabitants  were dragged  forth   in  batches     and  driven   into  the 'Amur,   where    some  4 000 traders and  coolies  met    their  death,  the, river  being covered    with  corpses.   It was a   torn'bio massacre.  Russian   reinforcements  arrived,   and  thrust buck the     Chinese   from     the  gates of the city,   tho Russians  then  advanced    upon   Aigun    and ieduced  both   the   city    and its inhabitants,  but the memory of both massacres' is  alive to-day.

I  j One special feature of many of the  tribes inhabiting New Guinea is the  | unwritten law of copyright in the  'designs with which they tattoo their  bodies. Each tribe has its own particular system of ornamenting the  body, and should a,member of. any  other tribe imitate the pattern,"it is  .regarded as quite' a sufficient reason  for a"'declaration of war between the  two  tribes. '  A traveller who has lately given  to the world his impressions of this  part of the globe, confirms this  ��� statement, and emphasises it by  imentioning an instance-in which war  actually broke out owing to an infringement of this human copyright.'  ! A young warrior fell in love with  | a girl of a neighboring tribe; the  igirl favored his suit, but there was  !a rival in her own tribe. This rival  i wished to know why the girl did not  look upon him with equal favor, and  "why, she" went outside the tribe for a  husband. -    - - - - ' ���  j The girl hesitated, and then re-  .plied���Either as a subterfuge or as a  statement "of actual "fact, i but probably tho former���that the rival was  not so well ornamented as was the  suitor from the neighboring tribe.  The home rival watched for the successful suitor, took note of the pattern, and copied" it. The other  i-iribe resented this infringement, and  declared war, in the course of which  both  suitors  were killed.  There's something radically wrong  about a woman who isn't fond of  dress   parade.  I ARMY  TRIALS.- <���  .   An  Infantryman's Long-  Siege.  This soldier's tale of food-is interesting.  During his term of service in the  17th Infantry in Cuba and Philii>-  pines, an Ohio soldier boy contracted  a disease of "the stomach and bowels  which all army doctors who treated  him pronounced incurable, but which  Grape-Nuts food alone cured:  "In October, 3 899, when my enlistment- expired, I was discharged  from the Army at Calulute, S?hilip-  pines, and returned to the States oh  the first available steamer that left  ' Manila. When I got homo I was , a  total wreck physically and my doctor  put me to bed saying ho considered  mo the worst broken-down man of  my age ho ever saw and after treat-  Ing me 6 months he considered my  case beyond medical aid.  "During the fall and winter of 1900  and '01 I was admitted to tho Barnes  Hospital in Washington, D.

But such ' "im-  permauence," which is also seen in  other things, is a part of the  strength of the nation, writes Mr.  Douglas Sladen in "Queer Things  About Japan," for no people in the  world have so few wants.  The Japanese have no bread, no  beds, no fires, no'boots or 1 shoes,  no trousers^ for the men, - no petticoats for trio women���for both sexes  wear several dressing-gowns,' one  over  the  other. In   their     houses  they have no windows, nof doors, no  walls but paper -shutters fixed in  grooves, no ceilings, no chests of  drawers, not even a washstand.  4 In the kitchen they have no range  no pots, no pans, no fiour-bins, no  kitchen tables. But then they have  no tables or chairs in the drawing-  loom, and in the real native houso  the drawing-room itself is only a lot  of bedrooms with the paper shutters  taken down. There is no reason  why you should find anything in a  Japanese house except mats and a  charcoal stove for warming your fingers and making tea. . ,  These and a cushion or two, and a  quilt to sleep on, with" an clnborato  conventional politcncbs, constitute  tho furniture of a Japanese house,  except tho guost-chamber. And tho  articles in the guest-chamber consist  of a screen, a kakemono and a ilow-  cr-vnsc.  Along with his magnificent want of  wants, so to 'speak,-'the Japanese  combines a - capacity to get huge  pleasuro out^of what we should regard as trifles,' and after labors and  sacrifices that wo should think intolerable. This extraordinary patience and whole-hearted enjoyment  under ( all the niggurdliness of his  lot marks tho Japanese "as unique  among the peoples of tho world.       .

Thou she turned, delicately fluslied  with a pleasant excitement and ran  with a springing step in froin the  frosty air, singing somo snatch of  song in the . glow kindled by this  passing,- glimpse of another kind of  lite. A long dormant something  woke within her under tho spell of,  the lady's gracious presence; her  voice, her face, her smile set many  , curroiits astir in her half-petrified,  half-crushed nature. It was wonderful to Jessie that she should at  - once have detected her loneliness,  not tho loneliness natural to a.  young creature bereft of kindred and  'friends,'' but that more invincible  loneliness of one who lives among  uncongenial and unsympathetic natures. Even Philip had never seen  this; Philip, with all his tenderness,  held her but a slight, mindless, colorless   creature.        ���  "And to think," mourned Mrs.  Fluminer, '/.that the parlor should  havo been all littered up with your  painting messes���and the smell too,,  as if the houso .was being done up���"  for company to sec." ���>  "Miss Lonsdale paints herself,  ,.cousin," Jessie replied, gently. /'I  don't think she minded it. Pleas*  let me do a little more, now the  light is, good. I will make all tidy  by  dinner-time."  "To be    sure,   Jessie, I'm not onn  '   to ' go     against   my \own flesh    and  blood,"  continued Mrs.  Plummer,  in  a-resigned voice;, "and if you are.to  be, an   officer's  lady,   tidy  ways     of  plain folic can't be expected of   you.  But. 'tis a pity.      Many.a time I've  spoke  to  your poor mother  against-  the way you was bred  up, never   to  ksoil  a  hand.        And  I  always     told  your    poor     father     tho  day     would  ' come  he'd.repent  it.      But I    might  as  well  havo talked  to  that cat."  Sevastopol, , whom Mrs.  Plummcr  equally , disliked     and   feared,   ' was  , not the only waif from the mill that  found  refuge beneath  her hospitable  roof. It  chanced   that.' she needed  -both a dairy woman and a cow-man'  soon after Mr. Meade's death, and  eet hor heart upon" Sarah, the maid,  and Abraham Bush, the>,miIler'B  man'. One obstacle prevented . her  from engaging-them; they worn not.  married, and tho Redwood's cowman and dairy-woman had always  hitherto been man -and wife. After  fioino reflection, she commanded her  husband to open negotiations with  Abraham, and at a certain stage to  inform him that his bachelor condition, was a bar to tho office. At  the same time she broke ground  with Sarah and lamented that it  was impossible to come to terms  with a woman who had no husband. l '  "You never gave a thought to  marrying, I suppose, Sarah," she  eaid  at  this stngc.  "I never encouraged nobody while  poor Misses was alive," Sarah replied; "hut to be sure, a lorn ooman  is lonesome when getting in years.  It's like this, Miss riummer, I've  had my own way th'is Ave and forty  year, and . that's pretty nigh  bo much as anybody hev a right  to."  "To bo sure, Sarah," assented  Mrs. Plummcr, "you've had more  liberty than a woman ought to,  and it is time you began to think  of doing for some man going to rack  and ruin for want of a wife; you  don't know any steady widower-  man who might be looking after  you now, do you ?"  ' "I knows two or three looking after the bit of wage I've a put by,"  Sarah replied, thoughtfully; "ain't a  gwinc to hev they, not as I know  on."  "Abraham Bush has money of his  own," suggested Mrs. Plummer, cautiously.  "Very like; he's a near ono is  'Abram. Vino weather for gairdens,  Miss Plummcr, ain't it ?"  Mi's. Plunimor then put a similar  question (o 'Abraham.  "Ay, I've thought o' matrimony  many a time." Abraham replied.  "I've always a thought better of  it."  ,"You'll bo getting in years, Abraham," Mrs riummer urged, "and  you'll   find   tho want of  a wife."  "I'vo a vound it this vifly year,"  returned Abraham, "and l'vo vound  tho befit sart of a want. It's like  this yer, mum. Muterimony is tcr-  bTc easy to vail into, but t's terble  hard  to vail out of."  "A nice, steady, hard-working woman with a bit of money put by,  Abraham, would bo the making of a  man like you."  "I dunno as . anybody'd hae me,"  Abraham replied, in a relenting  way; "but there, I need so well look  round, Miss Plummer."  "Look at Sarah," suggested Mrs.  Plummcr. A  '.'Many's tho time I've looked at  she," said Abraham; "a near one is  Sarow."  "And such a dairy-woman !" sighed Mrs. Plummer. "Well, good evening, Bush and if you should hear of  a married couple without encumbrance,  you'll let us know."  "Yes, I'll let yc know, mam."  Tho consequence was that one  'evening Abraham lounged into tho  Btillbrooke Mill kitchen,  Just before  tho auction took place, and sat  thoughtfully staring at the lire in  silence for some moments. Sarah  sat at the other side of the hearth  near the window with somo needlework and wondered, as she had won-'  derod for tho last ten years, if Abraham was coming to the point.  Abraham wondered on his part, as  he had wondered for the last ten  years on similar occasions, if he  should succeed in coming to the  point. ' At last, with a mighty effort which made his very bones ache,  ho uttered the following pregnant  words: '  "I reckon I bain't much!' of a ono  for marryen."  "Moro bain't I, Abram," retorted  Sarah .^promptly.  He was foiled, and began to wonder how many more years would  pass by before ho would again bo  able to.open a parallel of such importance. The clock ticked on for  somo minutes', making a sort, of  rhythm with Sarah's'clicking needle;  Abraham scratched, his head and  moved uneasily in his" chair, till at  last ho came out with, "There aint  no particular harm in" materimony  as I knows on, Sarow."  - "'Tis well enough for some volk,"  Sarah admitted, guardedly.  . "'Tis hworte in the Bible that two  is better than one," contended Abraham, after another perplexed- five  minutes  of silence.  "Sure" enough," she replied, "I'd  sonner hae two cows t'han one if  they was giv' mo."  ".Lord ha massy !" groaned Abraham, within himself, "!_ shan't get  drough with this in a week o' Sundays. Who'd a thought the ooman  was that dunch, and had such a  power of words inside hor ?'*  "I've always a said," he continued, "when I marries I shall hae a  ooman by tho name o' Sarow to go  long  with Abram like  the Bible."  "Hev ye now ?,. Well there's ea,  plenty of Sarows to hev." ;v  "Sure enough, .there's a many  Sairows, but thoy baint all up to  dairy-work,"  continued Abraham.  "I 'lows they baint. Abram," returned-Sarah, with an air of grim  abstraction. "Sarow Cooko" now;  she caint'so much as skim a pan o'  milk, no,sense. Poor missus used  to hev her when I had that" fever,'  you minds. Pretty nigh drove her  crazy, Sarow did."  "1 med so well go drough with 't,  now I've began," thought Abraham  to himself, "but darned if I ever  asks another ooman to marry me,  after this yer." 'He cudgelled his  brains in silence for some minutes,  with his hands thrust into his pockets, ^his legs stretched out straight  toward the fire, and his eyes contemplating his boots, which were  powdered with fine meal like all his  garments, his hair, and his face,  over which his hat was firmly rammed for the double purpose of concealing his blushes and giving him a  resolute air.  Sarah, a wholesome, pleasant-  faced woman with ruddy cheeks' and  strong, black hair tinged with gray,  stitched diligently on with an imperturbable  face.  "Massy mo I" she thought to hftr-  solf, "anybody mod newst so well  bo made love to by a owl. Why  cain't the wold dunderhead up and  say 'Will ye hae me, Sarow ?' and  ha' done'wi' 't ?"  "Sarow," continued Abraham, solemnly, "mo and you's kep company  together  this vivtecn year."  "Anybody must hae somebody to  walk with," returned Sarah, as if to  exculpate herself from the charge.  "You boint much to look at, to bo  sure."  "I'vo a hundred and vivty pound  in bank !'���' he  added,  doggedly.  "Hev ye f"  "Barn it all, Sarow," cried Abraham, goaded to desperation. "What-  ever's tho good o' wivcrin about  liko this yer ? Well yc hae mo or  wunt yc ?"  "Now you talk sense, Abram," replied Sarah, judicially. "I dunno  as I'm one fur marrcn, though. A  man do make such a litter stabbling  about houHn, smoking and wanting  vittlcs all day long. I've kep clear  o' the men this vivo and vorty year,  and I done well enough."  "WelL there ! if you wont hae mo,  Miss 'Plummer wunt hae you. I  dunno as you're man enough fur tho  place, a tor all, Sarow. Whoever  takes on wuld master's mill must  hae a man I reckon," he added, reflectively. "I novcr was much fur  materimony meself. I'vo tried zinglc-  ness this vivty year, and I never  had no' vault to vind wi't. You can  get out-o' singleness, but once into  materimony there you must bide."  "Sure enough, Abram, thero you  must bide," commented Sarah,  thoughtfully.  "Well, bo ye gwinc to hitch on to  me or.baint yo ?" growled Abraham,  wrenching himself from his chair  with a view to taking his departure.  "Well, there 1" slowly and deliberately replied Sarah, upon whom this  significant gesture was. not lost. "I  'lows I med so well hitch on,  Abram. : Miss Plummer do want mo  bad for tho dairy. Siic'vc got a  tongue, to bo sure, but Lord,  what's  a tongue when you knows the'worst.  of  it?"  Thus it came to pass, to ihc great  satisfaction of Jessie, that Sarah  Fry and Abraham .Bush wero made  one, and soon afterward installed at  Redwoods, ' where their kind, familiar faces made the large kitchen a  home-like place, to which she often  resorted for a pleasant chat, Abraham's part of \vhich consisted chiefly of a scries ��� of grunts, and which  kept Jessie's heart-warm and human  in her petrifying isolation.  CHAPTER  X.  'Jessio was mistaken in her surmise  that she was not again to see Miss  Lonsdalo, for tho next morning the  bright plume flashed above the low  garden wall, tho pretty, ponies stopped at the wicket, and the sitting-  room was again brightened by tho  lady's presence.  She came to see how the skotch  was progressing,' she wanted to take  a hint from Miss Meade; for, fond  as sho was of sketching from nature,  she had never yet been very successful, ,. in it. She had ventured to  bring, a' portfolio of ^watcrcolors and  prints, "also a book ' that Jessie  might like, a, lovely book, which  opened ' a new world to Jessie, it  was called "The Seven Lamps of  Architecture."   '  Before long Clara Lonsdale could  not walk, or sketch, or read a new  book without Jessie, and the days  in which Jessio was not commanded  to tho Court were blanks to tho  lonely girl. Tho Plummers saw the  growing intimacy . with no concern,  they held it an honor to Jessio and  by reflection , to themselves; 'they  considered' her position too far beneath Miss Lonsdale's for any  thought.to enter tho child's head.  At Mar well Court thero was more  concern on Jcssio's account. Even  Lady Gerlrudo was sufficiently interested ' to say" that' it- was a pity  while Sir Arthur ono - day rcmon-'  strated  with  Clara.  "It is a very pretty head," ho  said, "and you might find something  better to do than turn it for your  amusement. < I've half a mind to  warn tho Plummers."  So 'Clara immediately found something bettor to ,do. She took Jessie in to amuse tho invalid girl,  Ethel Medway, one day. Ethel at  once took "to a, face so sweet and so  near her own age, and Sir Arthur,  over-glad to find - any means of  brightening his daughter's sad life.  said no moro  Jessie left Miss . Blushford's ,at  Easter . when , the Medways \ wore  again at 'Marwell, and Clara was  again irterested^in her new friend;  with whom she had maintained a  brisk correspondence in' tho interval,  and 'with whose brief, and uneventful history she was soon fully acquainted.  The news of the final capture, ' of  Lucknow by Sir Colin Campbell had  been received, and though the great  revolt was now virtually quelled,  Pliilip still had ��� sterner work, than  marrying cut out for him for months  to como yet. , In his letters he now  only alluded to their union a.m distant possibility; as to Jessie's letters ho seldom alluded to them at  all. Many never reached him, those  ho did receive came out of their proper order and with such gaps and  want of sequence that they were  difficult to understand. On his  part ho had things of deadly interest to relate during .the prolonged  sieges that he confined himself to tho  boldest statement of facts, and this  he often repeated, knowing how  many chances there were that his  letters would never reach their destination. Thus tho two young people were spiritually as well as physically separated.  The wearing, wasting pain of vainly waiting for the post, of fearing  the postman's knock ancl yet being  blankly disappointed when he brings  nothing to till up the emptiness of  the weary day, such, the frequent  portion of women, "who vvco'p while  men work, wait while .they are absent, watch while they enjoy, was  Jessie's portion in her secluded iso-  iation. She    ate   her     heart   out  while watching for Indian letters  and when tho-'rare, long-expected  missive did arrive���and sometimes  the same mail brought two���was always, after the first thankfulness  that Philip was still alive and well,  miserably disappointed and sat  down to write her answer fooling  that she might as well sock counsel  and comprehension of a stono wall.  Yet there was only Philip to speak  to, and Miss Lonsdale, who read  tho child's inmost heart as she read  tho last new novel, because it was  something now and therefore inter-"  csting to a world-worn' mind.  In the genial spring weal her they  could sketch in tho open air, and  mado appointments to meet at selected points of vantage, so that  Clara might take hints and examples  from .Jessie's greater skill and talent, sho said, but really lor the  companionship.  How happy Jessie was in this, to  her, rare and cultivated companionship I How charming, clever, and  accomplished as well as kind und  friendly tho woman of. the world appeared to tho simple girl I Her  graco seemed beauty, hor polish  courtesy, her superficial cleverness  and information genius and learning  her tact, heart-sympathy. Indian  letters, Redwoods v homespun, Miss  Blushford's ; fettering -pettiness, her  own idle aimless life; all wero forgotten with Clara.  One lovely forenoon they met by a  thick grovo of old oaks, descending  a moderate slope '. to ��� a fair-sized  sheet of water, the banks of which,  except that opposite the skctchors,  rose steep, crowned with' trees. From  this level  bank tho rich sward,  dot  ted by clumps of, fine trees, rolled  away up to the terrace in front of  Marwell Court, the long and imposing front of which rose clear in the  April sunlight and' traced itself on  a background'of-wooded upland. On  one side of the fino pile a long vista  of level landscape stretched -away  to some distant blue hills, on the  other a *' hanging wood clothed a  steep-ascent, in the, foreground -some  deer were grouped,-~aS'if for the ox-  press purpose of composing a pic-,  ture; over all' was the sweet, deep  April sky of magical pale blue opalescence, from the mysterious depths  of which clouds seeircd to issue in  voguo^ soft outlines, which melted  and�� mingled imperceptibly into its  far lavender-blue recesses. The first  swallows of the year, flashed dark  against that lovely sky, white-pig-  cons ' and blue flew with < clanging  wings beneath it, larks shot up in  spires of eddying song and were lost  in it. the fresh half-opened foliage of  beech, elm, and larch', flushed translucent on" tho wood beneath it.- The  sunshine was tender and even fresher  than the light soft airs stirring tho  budded woods; one seemed to bathe  health from its' pure* radiance, it  threw,, a glory over everything,  steeping the turf and young leafage,  and calling forth such warm and  acute touches of color from tree-  trunks, the red broken banks and  tho still lako through which a  stream loitered slowly, as no' pencil  could  reproduce.    .   '  Russot and gold leafage wan just  beginning to break forth hero and  thero in tho gray masses of onk tops  over their heads. Looking back into the living' roof * you saw only  silvery mazes of "'thickly interwoven  boughs, relieved by ,.some .burst of  fresh lcafago or some' green undergrowth. The pale net-work made  a hoary gloom about the strong low  arches of thoso stout gray pillars;'  solemn, mysterious, and suggestive.  All.sorts of dreams rise and embody  themselves in'.such > dim woodland  haze; dryads, * nymphs, and fauns  spring to life; fairies disport themselves about the mossy roots. And  when tho sunshine loses itself in  thoso close-woven branches, or  shoots through somo aperture in tho  oaken roof, flighting up clusters of  pale, sweet primroses, delicate lightly-swaying wind-flowers, beds of  wood-violets, spires of early bluebells piercing- the moss and the red  relics of last year's leaves, the effect  is  truly magical.  But if the oak coppice behind  them spoke of hoary-legend and gray  antiquity, all that lay before their  eyes breathed of youth and morning  in its fresli and tender beauty. ' The  still lake, 'of a deeper azure than the  lavender-blue'sky, reflected the delicate tints of youngest' green and  gave back the pensive gaze of primroses, most -youthful and maidenly  of flowers, and mirrored, the , pale  golden ' glory of blossoming sallows,  already' thronged" with inebriate  bees. Nests were hidden 'down by  tho water where the sedge rustled  drily, little -dark moor-hens darted  out, with .their wild, plaintive cry;  an emerald flash lighted on a sallow,  bough, i its double in tho water beneath proclaiming it ,,.a kingfisher;  pigeons murmured contentedly, the  little stream gurgled musically in its  rocky descent to the lake, the spring  like 'fragrance of young leaves filled  tho air.  Jessie, seeing and feeling all this  fresh, live beauty as sho stood by  the easel near hor worshipped friend,  felt dopths upon depths within her,  whether of pain or joy she did not  rightly know; all was vague and undeveloped, like tho blind stirrings of  tho spring in the world around; last  year's nestlings cannot toll what  wonders may happen as tho spring  days go 'by with fresh miracles, so  it is with* young, unstirred hearts,  ignorant of* the advancing pageant  of life.  "How beautiful, how very beautiful !" she murmured drcumily, as  she gazed before her.  "Passable," commented her companion,  "subdued scale of coloring."  "And how pleasant to be with  you, dear Miss Lonsdale," continued  Jessie. "I think [ never quite lived  before. I shall never," sho added,  "be happier than I am to-day./'  Clara looked at tho young, sweet  rapt face with\ a mixture of envy  and pity, scorn and tenderness, wonder and amusement. "Foolish  child," she said, caressingly;- "how  long is it since you wished to forget  your own existence V Come and  sketch in these trees for inc."  Sho smiled a glad assent and bent  over tho easel. Sho did not know  that' oven now the shadow of advancing fate was fulling upon hor,  stealing from tho mysterious inas'C  of��� oak-boughs in the heart of the  wood, and that she would never  again bo the saino fresh-hoar!rd girl  that Hilled lightly over the daisied  sward in that morning's sunshine.  Sho wtis only conscious of the blithe  wood-notes warbling in Hie spring  air, the crackling of boughs and  dead leaves beneath a firm quick  step, tho sound of a mellow human  voice, as tho smoke of a cignr overpowered tho wood-scents, and turning round, she looked straight into  tho faco of a,young and handsome  man whoso eyes were alight with a  fire such/as sho had never seen' be-  foro and never could forget.  Hor gaze grow wide'and brilliant  as at mot and mingled for one electric moment with the new-comer's,  then fell,' and she turned again to  hor work.  "Unearthed you at last, Clara,"  the mellow voice was saying.  "Is that you, Claude ?" Clara re-  pliod, without turning hor hend. "I  certainly pity you at this time of  year in the country with nothing to  kill."      -  "Is      time   nothing?"    he    asked.  rather reluctantly throwing his cigoi  away.'

Even on tho  } farm, tho last stronghold of tho kitchen as a living room,' thero is * a'  strong tendency to uso tho wholo  house and confine the kitchen to its  legitimate purposes as a cook room.  J. Women realize that a small, convon-  |i( lent kitchen 'is    an    economizer     of  time,-travel and'strength.  *V.In  a' kitchen  twelve     feet    'square  'fy thero   is  ample  room  for   the, ncces-  ' sary. conveniences  which /the  worker  can roach,with ease.      The chief reason  for  a' roomy kitchen���the necessity of getting away from a red-hot  stove     in  summer,     has  been     done  sion 'at ono end, on which to ' place  tho dishes when rinsed and wiped.  With hot and cold water to be had  at tho turn of a faucet, or even  from a reservoir on the stove within  arm's length, dishwashing is made  easy. '  A zinc covered tabjg or shelf is a  convenience tho houlUkeeper will appreciate, especially, if it is provided  with drawers, for spices, utensils,  towels, etc. A marble slab' for use  in pastry-making is something 'the  cook seldom gets, but which she reckons as indispensable after'she has  onco used it.   .     '  The height of the stove, rthc sink  and tho table should bo adjusted to  the height of the woman who is to  work at them. Backaches are  bought on by working over a ' table  or 'stovo that is top low. A high  stool on which tho worker mayi sit  at her table or Bink and be raised  high enough above either to work  with case is a convenience worth  moro than tho rocking-chair that  newspapers writers insist upon as  essential  to tho cook's comfort.  In cool weather a cooling-box outside a window will save many trips  down cellar. This is only a box fitted into the lower sash on tho outside of a window, 'with a shelf or  two in it if needed. Tho lower sash  is raised to put things in. then lowered. Holes in tho back and-covered with mosquito net serve for ventilation, or tho wholo back of tho  box may bo made of wiro netting.  Iron pots and kettles, copper teakettles, and other heavy and cumbersome utensils should bo replaced  by granite and agiito ware. Thero  is^no senso Jii lifting pounds, daily,  where ounces would suffice ,,    _,  .A drop-shelf, against .the wall is  handy. Hinged to - tho wall and  furnished with - a secure prop, it  comes in piny many times.  If a wood box is necessary havo it  fitted into the wall between kitchen  and woodshed, with.hinged covers  on each side'so it can be filled from  tho outside. i A lot of dirt -and  "tracking"  is  obviated.  Something often (almost universally)  overlooked in the planning of a  ly ono cup, of sugar, 'then two well  beaten eggs,"'half a cup of milk, and  "ono and, two-thirds cups of flour  sifted a;ith two and a half teaspoons  of baking powder. In cold weather  soften tho bu,ttcr and warm the  bowl beforo beginning to mix cake.  Have tho flour sifted "and measured,  butter tho cako tins with a bristle  brush',-- and sift, over their greased  surfaco n film of flour to keep, the  cako from sticking. Put'the softened butter in tho warm bowl and beat  with the slitt'ed spoon until it is  creamy; this, allows 'a perfect blending with tho sugar, which should be  added whilo' you beat constantly.  When the butter and sugar is white  and creamy, sift in a few spoonfuls  of flour, then add the eggs and beat  energetically. Pour   in   the milk,  sift tho flour and baking powder.  Put tho batter immediately into the  oiled tins, scraping every particle  from tho bowl with a palette' knife  and beforo setting tho cake in the  oven level, it slightly, making it  somewhat higher at tho sides than  in tho centre. This makes a cake  level, as it is always sure to rise a  littlo higher in the center. Never  scrape batter from tho knife on tho  edgo of tho, pan; if you do, the cake  will not riso on" that side. In fifteen or 'twenty minutes tho cake  should  ba  perfectly  baked.  I  their windows so as to take advantage of the prevailing winds in summer and thus get airland coolness.  Bedrooms on the east side of>/ a  houso are nearly always hot in summer and cold in winter. ,Put' the  kitchen on the north or west side if  you can; thus you have it cool in  summer.' Plan the porch so that it  has a pretty outlook, gets the  breeze, and is not overlooked^ by the  street and the neighbors' windows.  I' away  with  by  tho  almost universal .    .     . ,     ,,     ,    . ,  '.use   of     the    gasoline   stove,   which I^,?0 J��_*��i��c^�� J?�� ^��f���l^_d  If.throws out littlo heat, and is out of  Y> commission within five minutes after  1 it is put out. '  Tho kitchen should bo on a    level  ' with    thes  dining-room,   its location  should  bo carefully ehoson.     Not so  near  the dining-room that its   heat  and odors enter   that   room, nor so  I'near a bedroom that the building of  ' fires  or  tho pounding  of  steak     arc  disturbing.        Ono of  the important  etudy of prevailing winds will    often'  Tenable  the  builder  to  so  place    tho  r windows that a current of  air   wilL.  , carry    the odors    of cooking out of  the house instead of diffusing   them  through it.     A-kitchen should have  ��� opposite windows so arranged as to  bo easily lowered from the  top ( for  Just .this purpose  Plenty of light is indispensable in  , tho % kitchen. In addition to 'the  windows, light is gained by making  tho walls light in color." xjOil paint  applied to the plaster on walls and  l' ceiling is easily cleaned, and is better than - kalsomined or papered  walls. Paper is easily loosened- by  steam, and if used should he the  oiled paper in tile pattern, which  not only looks well, but which, ' if  revarnished after the first washing,  t' can bo cleaned several times.  A wainscoting of Georgia pine on  |��� the side walls to a height of four or  fivo feet is better than mop-boards  and plaster, especially where there  are children. For the floor, there is  nothing better than pine covered  with linoleum. Tho hardwood floor  is trying to many women, because  it is liko walking on pavement, producing a jar on the spine which is,  tiring. The linoleum is clastic and  does away with this jar. Though  it is expensivo it is durable, wears  well, looks well, and is easily cleaned. The pattern of tho genuine Hn-  oleum goes clear through tho fabric,  and therefore does not wear off.

It is ithe  result of deranged kidneys, the uric  acid forming into hard substances,  which lodge in the kidneys and bladder.

Two rows of cows in a barn 26ft.  wi'de will confine them in rather close  quarters but can be arranged so "they  can be comfortable and enough spaco  left for alleys. "The cows should  faco the centre -for convenience ��� in  feeding. v Have a 3 foot alley back  of the cows, with a gutter from ,12  to 15 inches wide and 6 inches deep.  The'floor'upon which tho cows stand  should be level giving 4.$ feet for  standing room, about 2 feet' for  manger, making ll feet for each cow  and 22 feet for the two, with a centre feeding alley about 4 feet wide.  The stalls should be 3J feet wide  from centre to centre, which will  leave' about 3 feet and 4 inches in  the clear, and will provide ten stalls  on each side.  Tho partitions between the , cows  should be about 4 feet high and may  bo made of boards or slates. The  rear, posts may be omitted, as it is  not readily ncedod. ' The first post,  which may be 'a 2 x 4 scantling, ' is  4$ feet from the gutter, tho front  post is set forward S feet and slats  nailed against it. The partition  boards or slats should be fastened onto1 upright slats and then hung -.on  tho rear post with hinges. Place  slats in front so " the cows "cannot  step forward and fasten a rope onto  the rear end of the.partition with a  staple. The rope, or chain in the roar  of the cows sh.ould be about 8 feet 6  inches long, with a hook on the end  which can bo hooked into a staple in  the��swinging partition on the other  side. If the upper hinge on the partition is a little lower, so that ' ,'the  partition will sag a" little, it will always swing into  THE PROPER POSITION.  When it is desired to let the cows  out unlock tho rope or chain back cw  the cow, beginning at one end, let  the. first cow back out; give her-time  so she will tbe able to get out and  not afraid to back in the gutter. The  other cows will soon learn to push  the -swinging partition which will  give them room .to turn jaround. , *  Each cow has a" separate box for ar  manger,    about    2    feet     10    inches  DJU.W.

The top1 of tho manger in  front "of the^cow is only from 3 to 10  inches high, so her head will be in a  natural" position when lying down.  The manger should bo adjustable so  that when she is standing with her  hind feet-near the- gutter hor nose  will just reach ��� the slats in front,  which will prevent h��r from stepping  forward and soiling the rear of the  stall. Any-^adjustKncnt of a stall  ^hich will prevent tows from stepping- forward will k&ep them clean,  and by having the manger low, so  that when lying down the head can  bo carried in a natural position, will  afford'comfort, which ia an" essential  point in securing a large flow of milk.  The slats in .front of the cow will  prevent' her" from getting the hay or  other roughage under her feet. The  stall is made narrow'so -that tho  cow cannot turn' round, whilo tho  chain or rope is fastened from one  partition to the other. Each cow  should be taught to take lier own  stall and the teaching should' be done  with patience and great cai.��. It requires gentleness and tact ;to teach  cows properly, but in the cr>d ono is  amply rewarded for exercising these  virtues. t  CARE OF DAIRY COWS.  Invthe housing and care of dairy  cows no country shows, as a r<tfe  in general practice, any methods or  conditions bettor than those of this  country. Tho average conditiows  elsewhere aro bad enough, with oppoi--  tunitics for very great improvement;  but such improvement is being made  as rapidly in this country as anywhere. Nowhere else is there a better appreciation of the importance  and economy of abundant room,  light, air, dryness, comfort, and  cleanliness for cows. One hears much  of tho close relations between the  dairy cows and the families of their  owners in Holland and Swi Borland,  connecting apartments, und<_r tiie  same roof, etc.; but the stables which  aro seen in summer converted into  conservatories and rooms for weaving  and cheese curing are the exceptional  and show places. Even the best of  those when visited in midwinter, with  the cattle in place, are often found  dark, ill ventilated, close, crowded,  and insanitary in many respjets, although frequently Kept clean. The  construction of cow stables generally  in tho old world is of a substantial  kind, but with little regard to light  and ventilation, convenience of arrangement or case of cleaning. Tiie  labor necessary to k'oep them in decent condition would bo regarded as  impossible in this country. The cow  houses in Benmark average tho best  of all in ' Europe, but they arc no  hotter in any respect than ,t)io average of those of the distinctly dairy  districts  of'this    country,   and  there  is hero far more regard for/ economy  of labor management. Banish stablis  aro generally kept clean, but at th]o  cost of a vast amount of very cheap)  labor. < In other countries, as well as  Denmark, much 'attention is paid to'  cleaning the cow stables, but the conclusion has been forced upon",us that  this is done more from air appreciation of tiie value of all manurial matter and the fixed habit of saving it  thaw from "any knowledge or intention of cleanliness a3 of prime importance in dairying. This is especially shown'by the fact that the cows  are milked in just about as careless I  and uncleanly, a manner in Great -Britain and all over Europe as, it must  unfortunately , be 'confessed, as tho  common practice in this country. The  very general use of women as milkers  in all foreign dairy districts is a' decided advantage; they aro gentler and  cleaner than men, and vastly better  than the average farm laborer, who  does all sorts of work during the 'day.'  Much attention is being given, especially in ^ England, -to perpetuate the  custom of employing women instea'rj  of men for milkers, and to' maintain  the' efficiency of milk-maids; the popular public milking contests at -the  dairy shows'arc useful and commendable. Many parts of Europe have th'o  additional advantage of keeping the  cows in the fields continuously the  greater part of the year and milking'.,  them in the open air. This, practice,  does much to insure clean 'milk _ and  pure products. j '. "���,  DAIRYING ON    A SMALL SCALE!   /.  There are - many  farmers who .prae- '  tice general farming, keeping   enough  tows to pay the grocery bill, who-do  not   feel  that   their   buuiness   in  this'-  line is large enough -to ^warrant using '  the best modern applicanccs and'con-   ,  ducting the business along the. 'lines  laid down by the best  dairying-  au- '  thorities.     Each man" must judge .for  himself as 'tQ whether it is advisable  to put. in a separator and to build a  silo.    It is probable that a separator  will p,ay for itself in a comparatively  short     time,  even     where  but  a few  cows  aro  kept.       If not,   add  a few  more to     the herd    aud arrange  ^to  save  all  the  butter  fat  that   is" pro-"  du'ecd.    If cows are kept, they should  have  the feed that  will enable" th'emT  to produce  tho' most; pro'fit  for     tho"  owner,  and    it is the general experience of,practical   dairying   that     tho  silo  is     an     advantage  in  producing  milk cheaply.     But whether silo  and  separators aro adopted or not,  most  farmers who ke'ep cows could improve  their methods of feeding and the general conduct 'of 'the business. ,"���   ���  It would bo wise for many to havo  their cows come fresh in tho  fall    or  early  winter,  rather   than  in    spring  as so many do.    Tho price of butter  is higher in tho winter, and tho farmer has less other work to demand his  time  and  attention,   than  during  tho"  summer months.     Many  farmers    al-''  low their cows to go pxy all winter,  and whilo ' feeding them,  receive    no ,  income 'from the herd.      <���     '-  Of course, a cow, giving milk will  require more feed and better care,  than one running dry, but she must  bo fed roughage anyway, and grain  which would be required to make  milk, would be paid for many timen  oyer by the "butter she produced. Ta  make a cow do hor best in winter,  she should bo warmly housed, and  not be allowed to run out during  cold,' stormy weather. Silage is a  great advantage, but if fed bright,,  sweet clover hay and corn fodder,  bran or ground corn, sho will do well,  especially-if a few-roots can be ad- *  dod to the ration to meet the craving  for green feed. If the roughago ia  chiefly clover, a greater amount ol  fat-producing elements will bo re-,  quired in the grain, ,and - a large ���  amount of corn meal can be profitably used. If the roughage is largely  corn stalks," timothy hay and oat  straw, the grain ration should bo  composed largely of feeds rich in protein.  10  HEALTH IN SPRING.    i  Nature Requires Assistance in  Makings Nov/, Health-Giving  Blood.
