ATLIN, v B.C.;   SATURDAY,    NOVEMBER    7,   1903,
Review of the Season's Work
Company well Satisfied -
With Result.
■" The Pine Creek Power Co. started piping on June 22nd. and,closed
down on the 17th. of October. "In
..that1 time they moved 108,237 cubic
yards of gravel, using in the^opera-
tion 184,597 miners inches of water.
The maximum number of, nieii employed was"39, .the minimum 30,*
which gives a total of'4',54.7 days.
They expended in construction aud
new equipment^,000; besides purchasing more ground at considerable cost. The management, whilst
not willing to give ,the exact figures, assured us that the company
made a very good profit on the season's work/and that they anticipate
a very big return in 1904.*" "

Atlinites were quite excited over
the news of the strike, and as aeon-
sequence a contigent left here last
Tuesday amongst whom were: Stanley Hanson, Louis Geuaca and the
An tone brothers; we wish them
every success in their new venture.
Atlin Appreciated. -   ,
Judge Henderson had much to
say about the Atliii country. He
was told by some of the most prominent and observing operators , in
Atlin that the output there would
be about $500,000. The miners,
though they think well of" their
camp, do not want it overboomed,
or its advantages exaggerated.
* There is no need to deceive outsiders about the output, for the
camp itself is good enough without
falsifying reports. Au output of
$500,000, according to the judge, is
a very good one for a camp with
the population of Atliu.
, -Speaking o'f his own woik, Judge
Hetideison said —," Theie was a
much strongerk representation (*of
laswers ni^the North this time, aud
ihe judge rather seemed to think
that somehow or other many lawyers make much law, ''
7 "We think'so too, but it is "Getting bettei every minute. "      ,  i*

Sir Charles Tupper Talks of Boundary Decision..
Sir Charles Tupper, predecessor
of Sir Wilfred Laurier in the Cana-
dian premiership, returned to Canada-, 'after v having 'taken, part
in Mr. Chamberlain's fiscal campaign. ,„ In '.an interview on the
Alaskan award he said: "The loss
of Canadiaii territory is due ,almost

Wilfrid Xaurier, ^ If Sir Wilfrid

Herschell before the high commission in Quebec wheu-the proposal 'of
the United States that the question
should be left to three arbitrators of

A teach  er of composition in a private school  who realized this, has lately been -toying  .the experiment of making her pupils  write anything they like about a given  subject in a given time, geneially about  five minutes- and some of the results  have been most enlightening. One of th<j  subjects was "Wind," for example, and  here is one of the answeis: "There d\e  four winds, north, east, south and west;  but sometimes two of these blow at_ the  same time, and then we get a S W.. oi  N.E. wind." Another was at least topi  cal- "Wind is an abominal element. It  blows off people's hats and uproots trees  But'it is very useful for yacht races  The subject "Jam" was equally mspir  inK judging by the remarks written on  it. ''Jam is to be found in nearly everji  house," wrote someone; "and some people eat it at eveiy meal. Some jams  are sticky." We should rather like tc  hear of the jam that is not sticky,  Another subject that provoked the same  simple directness was "Ireland." Mort  eloquent than the eloquence of a whoI��  Gaelic league was the delightful sentence- "Tho Irish v\cie conquered by th*  English in days of old, and have beerf  annoyed about it ever since." We cannot  help recalling after this a charming pa*  sago in a forgotten lesson book��� lh��  Child's Guide to Knowledge"���ielating  to a thunderstorm. This is what it en.  joined: "Pull down the blinds, draw youi  oed to the middle of the room, lie dev.j  and commit youisclf to G-od."

This   peison   was  so   incensed   that  he  caused the book to be suppiessed by le  gal aneans.    Not  long after,  the  novel  was reprinted in this country in a cheap  edition.

'   " -  Although, in the iur that had ensueo  fcetween the British government and Ju  young American republic, the British  naval commanders had'promptly declared a blockade of the entli e American coast; and great fleets had been  ���ent to enforce the blockade, yet, such  -was the adventurous arid hardy character of our seamen .of the day, that the  ���efforts to shut up our ports "were "very  far from successful. Not only did the  vessels of our Infant navy put to* sea,  and, under daring and" skillful commanders, gain a series of brilliant victories, that compensated largely foi the  early military disasters on land, but  ���within a few weeks after the declaration of war, the seas were fairly swarm  Ing with American pilvateeis" Tha  most prominent and wealthy merchants  ���f the country engaged In this sort of  business   venture,    and  flight,    swlfl  schooners, heavily armed, and capable  ��f outsailing   any other vessels   then  known, .were sent to sea, by the hundreds from every port almost, and Inflicted Immense .damage on the enemy's  commerce.   Thefurthest seas that were  whitened by Britain's commercial fleets  were not safe from the depredations ol  these daring cruisers.    They even Invaded the British channel, and watched  like hawks about the English coasts,  -while it is related that one daring prl-'  vateer commander, while cruising off  the mouth of the Thames,.sent a cartel  'to London proclaiming a blockade of  ���the entire British Islands, In ridicule of  "the blockade of the American coast S3  'loftily proclaimed by the British naval  commanders.  The Otoesapeake Bay became the  .-great rendezvous of these privateering  craft, owing to the difficulty of block-  fading It, and the 'city of Baltimore  gained its early commercial supiemacy  and laid the foundation of Its futuro  prosperity by the ventures of Its mer-  -chants In this sort of speculation.  Early In December, 1S12, the privateer schooner Harpy, ' one dark ard  ���tormy night, ran into the haibor of  Baltimore, having successfully avolo-'O  the blockading vessels She had bteo  gone on a six months' cruise, having  -sailed from the port of New Yoik, but,  "TO her return, finding it closely bloclc-  *>5ed she had sought the safer wateis  Vf the Chesapeake to make port.

But now, no more words 1  strictly forbid you saying anything  more."  *The young man turned his head away  ,wlth an expression of pain and despair,  and the surgeon passed on In his rounds  Of the hospital. ,   '  A week passed by, and every day the  "Interesting young patient," as the sur-  geon termed the wounded young salloi  from the Harpy, renewed his pleading*  With the surgeon to secure an early discharge, from the hospital. With good  ca^ rest and nourishing food, he was  ���lowly gaining strength, and asserted  that he felt well enough to leave; but  the surgeon was afraid that the Interna  Injuries were of too grave a character  to warrant an early discharge from his  care, and denied every appeal allowed  to leave.  One morning, on his rounds of the  hospital, the surgeon came to the ward  that contained the wounded sailors���  troat of whom were now convalescent.  On approaching the cot that had contained the young1 man, ne was great^  surprised to And It vacant He had Just  been considering, as he came along, the  advisability of informing his very anxious patient that he could be discharged  tn a week or two. But he was gone.  Inquiry gave no clue to the secret of hia  departure, nor were any of the hospital  attendants aware of It. He had evidently got wearied of waiting a cure,  and, securing the help probably of soma  of his sailor comrades, had been assist*  ed to dress and make his way from th��  hospital without attracting the attention  of anybody.  The surgeon was very much chajTlned  and indignant. He berated his assistants roundly for their want of watchfulness.  "It's a pity," he said, as he moved on.  "That boy will probably sacrifice hia  life to his zeal to return to hia friends.  n a couple of weeks he might have gona  safely, too It's a shame If I find out  he was allowed to go with the connivance of anybody here, It will go hard  broadside.

For a moment all was dark and  gloomy, and they peered cautiously and  suspiciously about. Not a sound was  to be heard. The feeble light of the  lanterns scarcely suffice! to dispel tho  shadows ��� that hung about the duskv  old hall The long perspective faded  Into darkness; the doors leading off to  adjoining rooms seemed to glower  blackly at tbom; the tall climbing staircase, with its heavy balustrades, showed spectral and ghostlike; In short,  there was an air of gloomy mysterlous-  ness about the dusky surroundings that  greeted the two adventurous investigators of the mysteiy that had so long  been the subject of legend and unquestioned faith.  "LTgh< Ralph," said the elder Saybrook, "this old, gloomy hall stilkes a  chill to my veins I don't wonder that  people get ghost-lilghtened on coming  In here. It Is high time the old house  was put In order, ard the light and air  allowed to enter and banish this ghostly gloom One's voice sounds uneaithly  In here. Ah, here Is where the masons  have been at work. Pity they couldn't  have kept at it. A coat of good white  over this old biown wall would havo  lightened this gloomy aspect and afforded us a more cheerful reception.  Now, which way shall we turn���upstairs or down? I suppose the proper  place to investigate Is down In the basement and cellars; but, before doing so,  suppose we take a turn about up here  and view our future domicile.  Acting on this suggestion, they pro-  ct-uueu up tne stairs, ina, passing rror*  room to room, chatted checiful'y on tho-  6UbJect of the peculiarities of the rooms*  . and the Improvements that could be-  tnade'ln them. But theie was little to-  attract them long in the bare, unfur-  niblied floors, and they proceeded down,  stairs again and wandeicd through tho  rooms loading off fiom tho old hall.  Hero there was much to Interest \thern  in the quaint and masslye furniture,  the once rich but faded decorations, and  the many evidences of formei grandeur-  end taste surrounding them. Ere long  they.found themselves In the room that  had been occupied by the late mlstyes��  of Rolff House, and In which she tia*  died. While examining this room, the  keen glance of Anthony ..Saybrook detected a small dooi that was set In tho  dark wainscoting, and which appeared  as if it might beja closet Opening- It  casually, he was suipilsed to discover  a stall case, which evidently led down  to the basement. t  , "Ah, Ralph," hc said, "here is w discov eiy. This seems to be a seciet staircase, and pel haps It is Jast the clue we  want It leadsidown stalls, and, aa we  aie about ready to'go below, suppose  we see whore this will take us to,"  By this time, the two men had lecov-  ered from any feelings of neivousness  felt on llrst enteiing the houce. The  dead silence leignlng everywhere had  convinced them that- there was, nobody  in the hous,e, and the tilp up stairs had  bton taken by the shiewd but notover-  couiageous lawyei to give ample time to  any Individual,  If'he were secreted in  'the house, to get out of the way. But  they, had ceased to have any^expecta^  tions of meeting anybody, and the dis-��  covery of the secret stall way had simply awakened'curiosity.   ,     '"(. ,     i  i ! Nevei thelcss, befoie entering'It, they  trimmed  their  lanterns,' 'and    looked  -'again to their arms." Anthory Saybrook  then proceeded ahead, caiefully holding  his lantern so as' to 'throw its beams  tor ward as he slowly, picked his way  down the narrow stairs. r < t  .Arriving at the bottom, they found  that the stairs led Into a'long, nariow,  ' dark hallway. They stopped and peered carefully ahead, and the quick eye'of  Anthony Saybiook discerned what  seemed to him* the faint, etiuggllng  gleam'of 'a ray of light pleielng the  darkness from the key-hole of some  door.  ;He stopped, and whispered to Ralph  ^hls suspicion.,, -They closed, the slldea  "of-their lanterns, leaving the hallway  in darkness; and "then the surmise of  the lawyer became a reality There was  certainly a door-way ahead, and lays of  (light gleamed from within.' ���  "It may be sunlight,", whispered the  lawyer, "which finds its way In through  -some chink or window.} We must ex-  ��� amine Into it, Ralph.   Keep close up to  me, and have your pistols ready."  '-.Thus prepared,* they��proceeded cautiously forward'toward the door.   The  .'lawyer placed  his hand on the latch,  lifted It, and pushed ithe door open be-  'fore him.   A sight was presented that  caused the two Intruders to start back  la consternation.   ~ ,  The door, opened into a largej room.  The bare stone-walls were unplastered;  the beams overhead wercunlathed, and  hung with cobwebs. The floor was ot  irough boards; and no window admitted  a single ray of sunlight. At a tall, old-  fashioned secretary in one corner of the  room there sat the figure of a tall 'man,  clothed In a<dark 'robe that entirely  covered his figure. Two candles burned  on the secretary, and from these proceeded the rays of light thai had shown  through the door.   The deelc of the sec-.  (^Sfr  "I will tell you when we get home) ��� ���.

If that was rot old Rolff's ghost;" *  .Who was it?" <  "Ah,,there's the point, Ralph.

I   No sooner did they enter the house  than -Anthony  Saybrook proceeded  tc  ft closet and brought out bottle and *>  Classes. ' "-, ���  "I must have something to steady my  nerves,  Ralph,'- he said., "This day'a  bad    luck has   upset me    completely.

This Is a deep riddle, Ralph.

The door had scarcely ceased creaking 'on its rusty hinges, and a single  glance shown this picture to. the two sw-  tcnished gasers, when the figure 'at ��nti  seoretary arose.

He was shrouded from  shoulders to feet in a long black robe.  A small, close-fitting black cap was'up-  on his head, from underneath which escaped snowy white locks.   His face was  smooth-shaven,    and    large,    piercing  eyes     looked   out Jfrom    underneath  Shaggy white "eyebrows.    The expres��  Bton of his countenance was dignified  and majestic as he gazed sternly at tho  Intruders.  For a moment, the two men stood1  huddled together In the nariow hallway.  In the full light Issuing through the  door.'-.Sudden ' surpiite had , deprived  them of all power to act in so unexpected an emergency. They could only gaze  as if petrified at the majestic1 and apparently unearthly figure before them.  Raising an arm, and pointing a long,  skinny finger at them, the strange per-  nonage spoke: j  "Who are you that intrude uninvited  on my sacred privacy? Begone, ere 16  prove the worse for you." >��� ,  Anthony Saybrook strove' to speak,  but'no words came from his chattering  teeth. The gloomy, strange surroundings, and the sudden aspect of this  strange figure, bad deprived him suddenly of all courage whatever. He felt,  frozen with fear, as If in the presence  Of a spirit from the nether world.  Again the figure warned them away!  with a majestic and almost threatening  gesture, ,,  Neither of the men could resist the In*  cllnatlon to flee. They hurried through  the hall and up the stairs, nor did they  pause till, pale and panting, they weie  a half-a-dozen rods from the house  "Merciful powers, Ralph," exclaimed  Anthony Saybrook,    "what can    this  mean?"  "Don't,ask me," replied R-alph.- '  "It's a mystery beyond my fathoming," said the lawyer.  "I expected to be annihilated on tho  epot," exclaimed Ralph.  "I, too," responded the father. "It's  a most incomprehensible mystery. What  shall we do?" ,  "Go home," responded Ralph.

Navigation, so tar as the White  Pass and Yukon Ry., is concerned,  closed this week,-but it must not be  taken, by our friends outside, that  we are frozen up or out of the world.  Each year facilities ol ingress ancl  egress are improving and with the  exception of a few days,J when the  ice is forming in the fall, or breaking up in the spring, travel goes on  continuously; and the actual time  required to get to the coast is practically no longer than when the.  steamers are running.  A Lesson  from France."  The Vancouver Daily .Ledger  , says; that Atlin's demand to "the  government for a doctor is not a  reasonable one, and that the companies operating-here should act together and arrange with their employees to assist to some degree and  ' guarantee a certain revenue" to- induce a physician to settle ,permanently in Atlin.  We th��ik,���that the bonus of $500  yearlv- .which is allowed, the medi-  1 ��� cal officer here'by the government,  is not too much-as manycasesin the  'hospital are treated free of1 charge.-  We do not ask, as ,the Ledger reports, that the government "simply  ' send a man .up on salary": We' ask  them to procure a*, resident physician for Atliu. Surely in the Province, there could be'fouud one doctor who is willing to establish himself in a camp where" the possibilties  are so inviting.'  We kuo'w, _ that if a physician  weie appointed for our district he.  would be assisted by the com muuity;  many citizens have already express-*  ed their willingness to assist financially in guaranteeing him a fair remuneration.^ ,  A proof of tKe need of having a  doctor here, was sadly euough found  this week, when Dr. Young who  was to have-left on the last boat,  kindly pospoued his trip in order to  attend a patient, who is now lying  in the hospital at the point of death  as the result of an accident, particulars of which will be found in another column'of this issue.  The Alaskan boundary case has  called forth more criticism and has  awakened greater interest than any  other national question of late years.  Canada has now nothing else to  do but abide by the decision, and  ���when we consider that she voluntarily placed her interests in the  hands of the Commission we cannot commend her action in refusing  to sign the agreement.

The Amorican is ready enough  to make any change in his' habits  or conduct, provided, he' originates  it himself. But he willingly  borrows no custom from foreigners.  Now, there are many customs which  he might borrow with profit  Take the matter of a dot for  his  daughter,       for     example.     The  Frenchman, be he peer or laborer,  as soon as a  girl child  is born to  him begins to stint and save  and  scrape to lay aside  a  certain   sum  for her docver.    When   she is  of a  marriageable age it is there,   ready  to buy her a home or to enable some  homest young fellow to marry her  who   otherwise   could   inf. do' it.  She goes into the marriagepartner-  ship with a certain happy  sense of  independence.    She can   help  her  husband  to  carry  the  load of the  family.    She can have >something  to lay by for the dot of her,'daughter, if she have one.    If she  does  not marry, she is not a dead weight  for life  on   her  family.    She  has  capital, she has the little' income  which-commands comfort' aud respect from France to Patagonia.  That is thedebtwhich the French  father thinks he owes to his daughter.    He pays it. '  'The American father, as a rule,  whatever his position, works hard  to give his woman child the best of  everything which his money will  buy. If he lives in a house.and-in  a style which double, his income  will not pay for. it. is usually -for  her sake. "She has dresses, jtewelry,  accomplishments, -pleasuies which-  keep him on the verge of bankruptcy.  He lays nothing by. If she marry  before the crash comes, nobody  knows of the deception but- her  husband. But if the father "dies,  the girl's life is ruined.-- *  Look at the Mint, in Government  offices: in the department stores,  and you will find tens of thousands  of delicate, refined women brought  up in luxury; ignorant of any" art  "or trade, and penniless except for  the pittance whicli they can earn  by hard labor.  The English and French Women,  too, whatever her rank, is usually  taught the ordinary forms of business.    There   are    no    shrewder  traders than the bourgeoise -women  of Paris and JM arseilles.    They are  helpmeets to their husbandsv behind  the counter as in the,home.'   One  of them originated the methods and  organized the forces of the greatest  retail shop in the world, and" all  the successful shops in this country  and the  continent  have borrowed  her methods and her organization.  American girls are taughtscience  and accomplishments galore.    But  how many of them know where to  sign a check or how to   settle an  estate?    This     almost    universal  oversight in the education of girls  is the more amusias: as our" women  boast that they now have taken all  kinds of professions and trades  out  of the hands ot men.

Ihe asked, anxiously, for the color had  mied out of Haddon's face and it was as  pale  as  death.    Without  speaking,  he  {pointed   to   the   ground   ten  or  fifteen  srards away.   Waring looked and saw a  jgiant cobra, motionless, inert, lying expended across the road.    He rode a few  feet towards it and then went back to  Haddon.    "It's 'quite  dead;   somebodj  ���must have driven light over its head"  (    William  Haddon   shuddered.    Though  i   fee said nothing,  the  expression  of his  face was more eloquent than speech,  i   "I didn't know there was anything on  ithe face of the earth that could scare  ��ou," said his friend.  [   "1   can't   stand   snakes,"' he   replied,  ���imply,'  j ".'But this was a dead snake, man,"  [Waring answered, with a certain empha-  ���is in his voioe.  I   "Dead or alive, it was a snake all tlic  same."    Haddon's  voice  sounded  quite  ,   fiitferent  from  usual  in  its dull, level  ��� jmonotone.  /(fteiTTtw, and a splendid specimen, too. 1  ' fmak I'll take it back with me. Tlic  .

Whar  t possible different can it make to yor.  \ jwhether I take a dead snake back or  ���' leave it where it-is?"  the time."    , '  "But I hat inn's hee was actually disfigured with hate." His voice had a deep  kou9 in it.  "U/Jiat ot that?" ILiddon's lightncs  contrasted etiongly with his fuend's  seriousness.'  "If you'd ghen him three months it  would have allowed him that much time  trammelled by the confinement of the  four walls, bo tliat he could go on and  on and on until he could drown his excitement in- fatigue, leave his thoughts  behind In the rapidity of his motion. It  was so'ovorpoweiing an .emotion that it  dominated him to the exclusion of eveiy-  thing el.se. It never occuncd to him tliat  he might be running headlong into the     ._    very danger fiom which he always took  to sober down; instead of which you lot 'such, precautions^_to   escape:    tnat   he  him go with a fine and took no notice of  what ho said to you."  "The son of a pig would sooner go to  prison for six months than pay'thnt fine  of ten rupees. I know my men, my dear  ��hfta."  "But If1 he were to stretch out 'the  hand of vengeance,' as he called it, and  attempt to go for you?"  William Haddon stietched himself.  "Let him tiy," he said, calmly; "I am not  afraid." ;    -  "Yet a-little while ago "   Wailng  stopped short.   He would have given any  !  il  J"t-'Snakes follow'the trail," Haddon an-  / awered, gloomily.    "This dead one may  i tortag a live-one. to the hou.se."  \   Nonsensef  That is only talk.   Why.  JV have killed dozens on the road and  JfZaktn them home when I was in Mysore  >?* and never found another snake come af-  jter them."   He got off his horse to pick  Cp the dead snake.  ���t'Very well, then, you must ride on  fclone,'' saidl. Haddon.    "I  can't -acconi-  toanyyeil with that."   Horror, loathing,  gear, jvere all in his voice, on hi3 face  fgJall me a fool if you like; I can't help  ���ft," it's stronger than myself.  It's a deadly horror.   It sends cold shivers througr  taie only to think of a snake, much les��.  ���to see one.   I tell you I can't ride with  you if you take it^-I won't ride with  you if you take it," and there was r  aote of menace in his voice.   He lookef  Sown at his friend, and from him to the  body of the snake lying in the dust.   Un ���  consciously to himself his whole expres  sbn changed.   The dead snake fascinated  )iim, and he spoke almost in a whisper  ���as if he were communing with himself  PI can't stand snakes; they seem to be-,  long to a world of their own; not like  the beasts of the field, nor the birds of  the air, nor the fish of the sea; yet they  'fcelong to the field and the air and the  ��ea."  ,       He shuddered again, and as he looked  (IB the shiny, ocaly ikin he lost" all sense  of his surroundings for a moment and  $ot transfixed or his motionless horse,  fazing steadily beiore him, yet seeing  othing.  Waring looked at tho white, set face,  nd resolved to humor him. He would  not take the snake iack himself, but he  Stvould not lose the skin.  "HI give you two rupees," he said to  p. passing, native, "to bring this dead  *nake to the house c r the Sahib Haddon  Will you do "?" The man accepted the  *ommisslor' e&^erly. Waring led his horse  ftack to . Where Haddon's horso was.  "Come on," he said, and he touched his  friend on hit hand.  Haddon av oke from his reverie with  a (tart.  "A gallop will do you good," suggested  "Waring. . -  Hoddo-7 shook his h -ad. "No, we'll  ride slowly, carefully." By the way he  {shuddered Waring knew he was thinking of thf po-sibility of meeting another  snako, and he wanted to make sure of  -/seeing it before he came up to it. They  |rode on in silence for a little while. Then  [Waring turned. "You were talking just  stew about the diffeicnt view a native  takes of the administration of the law  Crom the way the prisoners do at home  if a man had threatened me as that Ram  "^-wsh Basha did you, I would have giv-  ^ him what foT.  jtfaddon smiled.  ���^Aren't you afraid that he'll put his  threat into execution and go for you  some day?"  Haddon l?ughed outright. "Good gracious, no. roan. If I were to go in fear  of my life cvciy time I line one of these  thing not ��o have spoken, but the words,  obedient to his thoughts, escaped beforo  he could pi event them.  ..  Uiuldon looked up and nodded.   "Yes,  I know; a little while ago I tinned white  at the sight of a snake acioss the road���  and a dead snake at that "I can't help'  it.    My- mother  was   fiightcncd   by   a  snake bcfoie 1 was boin, and I have always had,a honor of them all my life.  I have fought it all I know how, but I  can't get OA-er it.   It's there, and I have  to reckon with il.vDo you'know, the  possibility   that   I   might   come   acioss'  -snakes in this part of the countiy was  the one thing that nearly made me refuse the appointment?    There is something so inhuman, so dogiading about a  snako.   In their eyes they seem to hold  the degradation of the world, from the  timo of Adam and Eve in the Garden of  Eden till the day-"when tlio world shall  cease to be.   And yet it is strange that,  with'all my^honoi���I shudder when 1  only think of a snake���nothing"'fascinates me more, and fiom the time I was a  child I never came across the story of *  'snake without lend'ng il."  "Well, I'd sooner be afraid of Ram  Koosh with his face of hatred and his  ���hand of vengeance' than all the snakes  in the woild," said Waring, vehemently.  "And I would -rather face all the Ram  Kooshes in the world with their faces  of hate aiid 'hands of vengeance'' than  one single'snake." A"ain Haddon shuddered. "For goodness^ sake," he "added,  anxiously, "let's talk of something, else,  if I can't i think of something else."  Though he offeied to talk of something  else be rode on in silence, and when he  got home he dismounted and went to his  own room. Half an hour later he had had  his bath and dressed.' He went on to the  veranda, and no one seeing him would  have imagined hc -had been-so* strongly  moved only a little while before.  v .To all outward appearances' he had rr-  -covered his self-wntrol,. yet��� if anyone  could have looked into hislsoul St would  shave been as easy to see1 that'he was  completely unstrung as it is to see the  waves running high *jtzst after a storm  is over. - -*- ��� -��  ^As he stood looking- ��p htto-tfce'be-  jeweled sky the door of the farther end  of the veranda opened, and his white-tur-  baned servant " made   Ibis appearance, j  The eahib's dinner is served."   He wen! \  might-*,��read in the"duiknessupoiifa snaker  before he^'could possibly be aware of its  presence. Even had lie thought of such  a thing the 'all-compelling need of movement ��� rapid, vigorous,* exhausting -���  would have"trodden down his leaf and  sent him out into tho night. With the  next turn that biought him to the dooJ(  he stopped, turned the handle, and, with*  out pausing, even'to getT a caff, ho wenT  on.lg tho veranda, down the steps, nntf  Out info the night. Like a man walking!  for a wager ho went swinging down the  road. Fast as he was going, his thought \  ���went faster still.   He felt he must over*  ing congealed, enucleated into the honoi  of the moment. Il/c heard nothing else,  he saw nothing else, he felt nothing else  "but the hissing, hissing, hissing in the silence, the two eyes glimmering through  the darkness, and the lissom coil on coil  pressing on his feet. ^  Another instant the dark head ro3e  and swayed. Slowly, gently, softly it  moved from side to^idc, and as it mo\ed  and swayed his eyes moved too.  What should he do? -, , "**���*  If he attempted to get up he knew his  sudden movement ,��� would, disturb the  snake and it would'strike.1 If ihe lay still  'The head raised itself higher as the inmost coil ^unwound itself, and as the  creature s'wyed in a gradually widening  aro he could see the led tongue darting  out and in, he could hear the hissing,  hisbing, hissing in an increasing tone*.     .,  William Haddon's eyes were riveted  on the i eyes in the undulating, swaying  head.

"Awfully good to-night, these' curried eggs, old man,"' he said, looking at  Haddon, as the latter refused the prof  fcred dish.  ' "No, I can't eat."

In  stead he said,/'Have a drop of brandy  that'll pull you together.

"Oh, I'm all right enough, old ma.i  It's only the disgust of the thing thaf-  sickened me.

He got up and began to walk restlcs  ly to and fio. "I'm a fool," h-- said, hall  aloud, irritated at hi- own thoughts  which foiced him to seek relief in speech  "A fool," and he began to walk more  i.ipidly than bcfoie.

The moon  came  put  from   behind  a  bank of clouds which, had  obscured it  entirely.   William, Haddon looked upon  the ground and smiled to himself.'

"JSS^Jwed be Thy, name—Matt, vl, 9.
The Lord's Prayer is a volume' of
doctrine arid ethics', bas.c and far-reaching. This first' petition is the cornerstone of the whole structure/ami sets,
forth the same radical concept that St.
Paul docs in his treitise on charity.
It creates the'view point of the religion
of Jesus Christ To make something
holy is to develop the highest attitude
of our nature, the icsult of the union
of the mind arid the heart „  '
There is hol'iicjss th-t b'longs to certain things aside from whpt we oidin-
arily call leligion Ihc thing that has
become holy to you may have, little or
no value. An old book that your mo-o
ther often icad, that would not bung
five cents in the maik.it, is licasiiicd as
a holy thing'bj you, and pa haps by
you alone, tlic old homestead is a holy
place;'a little half-woin shoe is a holy
thing to a saddcno-l moll cr's hca t All
because these thmgs have been linked
with  the  affections. rt
The giant locomotive lus„beiomc a
holy thing to the man tliat sits in the
cab, the realization of the di'cain of
years, the shnnc of woi shipping labor;
there is no need to bm lum to give' it
his best cneigics, theyjidong to it A
drop off stagnant w.itci is a holy thing
to the man of conscience who has, devoted his'mmd to study of'its rcvcla-
- tions, and thiough his microscope he
enters it with such ievacuee as a
worshipper does a temple. No need
to bid him to prayer, 01 such it is, he
kneels day after day fwaiting for" the
revelation of" God.      .**:_,
The devoted son/ the loving mother,
the mechanic who gives honor to his
work, and the student"'whose every
thought is a pra>ci, ai,c examples of
the best things in this life of ours, and
the nearest to our loving Father, creating and vwoi king in His infinite wisdom: but", as w'th'a 1 the nob est things
in life, they aie^ the most dangerous.
The son, the mothei, the cng neer, ,the
t student may become idolaters, and that
which was holy dcg-ne'iate into a selfish
superstition, that which 'ought to ">le
a motive to a broad' an'd| wealthy life
become a positive hindrance to true
growth. * ;    - -- -~
Here, then/the far-ieachmg, opening words of our Lord's prayer,-May,
oui Father's name-be made holy. And
what is our Father's nsime? Surely not
only what we sound when we pio'-*
nounce the woids, siuely not the name,
as you or* I have a name by^.wluch we,
are known among men, which, por-
nounced, gives no revelation of what
we are.     .. ^ < J" >
Our Lord is doing more than bid
us abstain from piofanity and pio-
nounce His Father's name ivuh' reverence in our speech And what us the*
name of God? That by which Hc has
revealed Himself, that by which He is
known.. Not a name like Brown-or'
Smith, which tells naught of what he
who bears it is, but a name spoken in
our ears'in'all our daily'toil and hours
at home, as varied as our lives, but
ever revealing Him; now His love,.now
His'wisdom, now His mercy, now His-
justice. >,v; (       ;-''.•'
It means for us to -give "Him- our
devotion, that the seeming little things
in life become as .the ,treasured book
of a mother's life or things rejected
by men, as the little, worn-out shoe,^
ever declaring the gracious blessing'of
a-life not now seen.
It means that our daily work is with
holy things treated with loving care
such as the engineer- gives to his .great
instrument of modern life. It means"
that" the .most despised and scorned of
things on earth .'may become a wealth
of revelation'of divine wisdom, as docs
that dirty drop of water to the'student's
eager eye.
* It means that all around so speaks
of 'Our Father's love and wisdom that
the earth becomes a temple, and our
duties ahd our'cares that by which we
offer praise and worship to Him who
built it.     '
"Hallowed be Thy name"; so teach
me, Lord,'to find in everything, that
.greets my ear a name for/Lliee, in
everything that,greets my eye Thy autograph, that I may live in holy place
and offer continually the incense of my
Here, then, the viewpoint of our religion as taught by Him who gave it:
Reverence towards His created work,
and, above all, for. " human life, all
cleansed, nothing unclean, no life so
low, so forsaken, that it shall .not recall that holiest moment of His .work
when* He, too, cried: "My God, my
God.why hast Thou forsaken me?" The
utter darkness of the Hply of Holies in
which He placed the light by which
we might see -the holiness of our God
when the veil was rent in. twain.
St. Paul calls this same great virtue
charity, but whether charity or reverence is that spirit that never scorns,
never despiscth, is never puffed up,
seeketh not her own,,thinketh no evil,
Iropeth all things, and without which
we may give all our goods to the poor
»nd our bodies to be burned, and yet
are but as sounding brass or a tinkling
We can learn the holiness of God
only by making holy all that Hc hath
given us: we can have faith only as we
make holy the name of God.

Effect of Mulching Vegetables.
"Mulches cause some vegetables to
mature la'fer, while with'others no delay was noticed. Late spnng and early
fall frosts injure mulched plants more
than . cultivated ones, 'making it inadvisable to ""mulch very tender vegetables that require the whole season for
proper development. Early spring vegetables, 'which require only a few cultivations, can usually ,be grown more
cheaply by cultivation than by mulching. Furthermore, very early mulching, before *' the ground has become
thoroughly warm, is apt to retard the
;growth of .vegetables.' Summer- and
fall -vegetables,■' on'' the other hand,
which ' require frequent cultivation
throughout, the season, are grown
more cheaply by mulching -than cultivation, -i Moreover, '" the - yield and
quality of vegetables;, afe often improved by mulching. '   -
Many vegetables cannot be mulched
until they have become well .established and the weather has become warm,
thus requiring some preliminary cultivation. Such cultivation as is commonly given farm gardens i.s better
for most vegetables in early spring
than mulching, but mulching is just as
surely better in "midsummer than the
neglect which is tlic common thing in
farm gardens at that time of year. The
Nebraska Experiment Station tests
have, indeed, shown mulching to be
better in many cases than the, most
thorough cultivation throughout the
summer. Results very favorable to
mulching have been secured with""cabbage, tomatoes, beans, cucumbers, potatoes and sweet potatoes. In all
these cases the yields have been increased, on the whole, quite decidedly by mulching, and the required labor decreased at the same time. Mulched cabbage produced larger heads than
cultivated cabbage,, atxl there was less
injury from rot. The vigor of toma-i
to plants was decreased by mulching,
but the yield of fruit increased The
fruit was also ckanci an 1 less subject
to rot. Mulched cucumbers produced
perfect fruits during dry periods, when
the fruit* from the cultivated plants
were small and impeifcct The quality of potatoes has not been hurt by
mulching,   except   in   wet   places.
In case of'transplanted onions, sal-1
sify, beets, carrots, parsnips, peas and
melons the results arc not decidedly
in favor bf-eithci o-f the two methods,
both the yields and the requned labor
being about the simc ' From recent
tests, it is thought unwise lo mulch*,
drilled onions, ,letti cc and,sweet corn
With drilled ''onion-, the stand - o£
plants is usually '-ut by mulching.
With lettuce it is also difficult to spread
the mulch without injury to the stand,
and the crop is hai wasted so caily that
it is not worth while'to mulch With
sweet corn the jields iim'about the'
same in a"nonnil 'season whether
mulched or cultivated, but this crop

Advantages of Coffee Jelly.
Coffee in .'the form of jelly Ms .recommended by The Lancet lo those who
thlnk'it necessary to take this stimulant.
It says:—"A,hot draft of coffee la undoubtedly a powerful stimulant, enabling
both mental and pli>sical fatigue to bo
borne. On tho other lund, a" cup of hot
coffeo disagrees with m-iny persons; their,
digestion Is dlstutbed rather than aided,
there Is Interference with the holmul
chemistry .of the dlgosti/o process, and
tho ' dyspeptic must eschew hot, strong
coffee as well as tea The excosslvo
drinking of coffeo ls In any case an evil.
But It is often forgotten that coffee can
be taken In other ways, and In none, better than In the form of jelly A clear
coffee Jelly after'dinner Is every.bit ns
good as the hot infusion, while It is froo
from some of the drawbacks of tho latter
Coffee, unlike alcohol, diminishes organlo
waste, rouses the muscular oneigy without the collapse which follows alcoholic
Imbibition, and gelatin In tho form of
Jelly ls cooling, assuages thirst, Is soothing, and has a tendency 'to absorb any
excosslvo acidity of .the stomach Gelatin
Is what Is known as "a 'proteld-sparer—
that ls, it saves the destiuction of proteld,
such as albumen. Having regard ■ to
those facts, therefore, coffeo jelly should
form a very suitable sequel to dinner
and an excellent substitute for the Infusion. Moreover, th* astringent principles of coffee, which, however, are different in kind and degree from those
present In tea, are nullified bv the gelatin. In short, jelly Is an excellent vehicle
for coffee, but, as Is necessary in making the Infusion, the quantity of coffeo
in the Jelly »hould not be stinted. Coffee serves an admirable purpose In dietetics, and those with whom It disagrees
when taken In tho farm of a hot Infusion
will very probably find the jelly quite satisfactory."

these arose out of the complex'character

Jtt appears that his Loidshlp married
twice, and in both unions had been blessed with progeny, while his second wife,
