Smith, foimerly cleik in the Government Office hr-re and now clerk  in the recorder's office at,Wells, is  that he accidently shot himself  while duck hunting.  He and an Indian were getting  out of a canoe in the Chilbat river,  aboveKlukwan, when Smith pulled  his gun towards him aud at the  same time it discharged shattering  his right hand aud forearm.  For 15 hours he suffered tetrible  agony before a doctor could be  found to dress his wounds. He  was brought to Haines in a canoe  by J. J. McKcnna and from theie  to  Skagway  where he  is   iu    the  raihoad hospital under the care of  Dr.  Runnalls.  It" will be impossible to save the  injured man's arm and fears aie  grave that his life may yet be lost.-  Later: Mr. Smith had his aim  amputated above the elbow, the  operation was necessitated because  blood poisoning had set in. Dr.  H. B. Runnalls, Dr. J. P���. Bra wand  and Dr. J. P. Truax performed the  opeiation which was successful'in  eveiy way.  Bishop of   Caledonia Pays  Atlin a Visit.

A. who has  been actively associated with the  St. Andrew's Hospital since its inception, to give a sketch of the  history of the Hospital from the  early days of the camp.  Mr Stables brought back very  vividly to the minds of the old  timers here the hardships enduied  by the sick. in those early days of  Atlin, when it was but a city of  tents and impressed on the minds  of all'the great woik done by the  hospital and its staff foi the relief  of the sick.  Mr. Fraser, the treasurer, gave  statistics showing the amount of  treatment given at the hospital  during the past year and eight  months and the generous support  sent to the Hospital by the ladies  of the Piesbyterian Church in  Toronto.

The sweetest of stories told in any  ���' bague among men is this beautiful  ���arable of the Prodigal Son. Every-  t ��here it is attentively heard. Simple  ��v��n to plainness, told ten thousand  Imes; it never loses its marvellous  Alarm. '  "What is  perhaps ' most    wonderful  ���bout k is that while the guilt of the  nuiderer is never for a moment hid7  ���en, while his transgression is set before' us  in  characters   so  distinct.  ,i_  ���ever to be mistaken, we do not for  ft moment lose our sympathy for the  wanderer himself. So the Master wish-  Mi it    For 60 He opens the inexhaustible fountains of the divine love to our  rision; so He shows us how He re-  icives sinners and eats with them, how  He welcomes the guilty to the feast of  ,  His love and rejoices over them as a.  * lather over a child that was lost.  And yet this'* sympathy turns alto-  tether upon the incident to whicli the  Scripture directs us. Let the narrative hare another termination and�� our  pity turns to disgust Let it read :  "But he was besotted and rejoiced in  Ifae husks with the swine; he longed  iot for his father's^ home ; he ignored  l|�� plenty and died in his wretched-  ��� fcess."

The leverage by which it  is to be lifted must be outside itself.  It wants God.

According to The London Canadian  Gezette Canadian poultry is now cap-���  turing the best trade in fashionable  London suburbs, the specially-bred  Canadian chickens having a great demand and retailing from $1.75 to ?2.oo  per couple retail. Their highly-finished appearance and-flavor have demolished all prejudice on the score of  "foreign produce."    -  Extremes in the Weather.  Extremes of heat or cold have always a retarding effect on the prolificacy of poultry. During a prolonged  spell of very cold weather most of the  surplus energy derived from food goes  >o supply the extra tax upon the system, and but little is available to supply  the necessary stimulus to the egg organs, while during vciy hot weather  the birds are listless and void of energy,  and quite wanting iu the vigorous vitality which always accompanies a high  rate of egg-pioduc'ion. Worse than  cither are the sudden and shaip changes in temperature; these throw the  birds out of gear for the time being,  and the yield of eggs is uncertain. If t  we want plenty of eggs in cold weather  the food ralion must be a highly nitrogenous one, while in very warm weather the meise is required. Then an  lbundance of green food, especially  grass and clover, should be given, but  very little food which has a fattening J  tendency. Insects will be plentiful if i  the birds have a free range, but it is '  most necessary that good shade should  be within easy reach when the birds  want it. If they arc continually exposed to the rays of the sun the result  must be weakened vitality produced by  continued muscular and cellular relaxation. Birds which have the run of  a plantation during the summer  months continue in the pink of health  and prolificacy; so shade they ought  to have of some kind if they are lo  remain profitable. But an excellent  tonic for bracing up relaxed cells at  this season is tincttue of pcrchloridc of  iron, better known as slccl drops. It  is   styptic,  astringent,   and   tonic,   and  'A Short Fruit Crop in Europe,  . The fruit division, Ottawa, has received from 'several of its correspondents in Europe -reports showing that  the fruit crop is a small one this year,  and' indicating that there, will be an  unusually' good market for Canadian  apples^'and pears." The Glasgow Herald says :���"Apples will be scarce, the  destruction by spring , frosts having  been serious and extensive. If grow;'  ers get half a crop on an average they  will do well.' Tlie prospect, however, varies considerably. In some  fjarts of Kent the trees carry excellent crops ; in others hardly any. The  6ame condition of things prevails in  Herefordshire, whence the 'Midland  counties are so freely supplied with  choice dessert apples. In Cambridgeshire the crop is disappointing, although in parts of that county a fair  harvest of apples wiH be gathered.  Many growers will be satisfied if they  get a quarter of a crop. Pears have  suffered from the spring frosts equally with apples., In some counties  the yield will be' meagre; in others the  crop is a complete failure. Only a  third of a crop under the most favorable  conditions  is  looked  for."  E. A. O'Kelly & Company of  London say:���"We are glad to state  that prospects are very favorable this  year for the importation1 of Canadian fruit, as crops throughout Europe are a total failure. We anticipate that prices will be very satisfactory all round for apples." ,  From Hamburg, Germany, Edward  Jacobs & Sons report:���"The fruit  crop in Europe is tins year, generally  speaking, short. Should there be no  duty on apples the piospccts for Canadian   arc   very   promising."  Garcia, Jacobs & Company of London states :���"There has been an almost total failure here of plums and  pears, and this year there will be a  good opportunity for the shipment of  Canadian pears. The latter should  be packed in cases similar to those  sent from California. That there  is a fair crop of early vaiiety applies  is a certainty, hut they will all he  cleared off the market before your fruit  is ready for shipment. France, Belgium and Germany are large growers  of apples, and the crop this season  is fairly large, but '"c quality is so  poor that they can -ever really compete with Canadian  fruit/' *  ; Some Fashion  i j  Notes. : .

She will have it well made if  the thing is within the possibilities, and  if she can have.but one expensive Irock,  will go to a good tailor for her travelling  frock, and trust the otheis to an inferior  maker and the fsvtes.

Tho three-  piece suit of' etaminc, canvas, mohair cr  other lightweight rm'tenal suitable lot  tailoring is another favorite with the tis-  veller, the skirt, bodice and coat being of  one material, so that when the coat Is removed the costume is still complete, and  separate blouses are not a necessity.

'*���      .|  , Anthony Saybrook had not been un-  nlndful of Ms engagement with Claude  io visit the old south cellar on New  tear's day, and note whether the mysterious signs appeared on 'the door of  ike vault therein.     In    fact, he  had  twalted moat anxiously the arrival of i  the appointed day.    Spite of the eaao  Cp had had in explaining to Claude  |)e secret of tha old lady's mysterious  structions, he was greatly puzzled ia  mind as to their nature and mean-  g.   They must,, mean something: lm-  ���portant, he argued.   The old lady was  is*  praotlcal  and - sagacious  to   have  -fflvtn such strange and explicit directions without some very definite objecti  -B view.    "Can it be possible," mused  &e  lawyer,   "that, she   has   carefuliyi  r Caved her earnings and deposited them  <*a the old vault, and that great wealth  ��� fc there awaiting thib young prodigal.

Either   would   be  .Chrewd and trustworthy enough; and,  really, the plan ^wouldn't be so bad fop  Keeping the money so ?e till Claude got  >��. little experience of the world.    But  I'll wager the old lady never counted1,  ��n the possibllt.y of any new propiie-  tor coming    into possession    of Rolf  Bouse before the secret of the  vault  was revealed.

JTeo, yes���It Is a prize worth having;  tnd I must and will have It, unless the  levll himself fights against me." I  1 New Year day at last arrived; and,  immediately after a hearty dinner, Anthony Saybrook proceeded to the old)  Sanslon, and, lifting the great rusty)  looker of the heavy oaken door, sent  a loud alarm through the vacant halls  ,Ai.d rooms, that echoed and re-echoeiV  aa If giving warning that a dangerous  enemy was at hand. *  Old Carl answered the summons.

There was no sign of the*  mysterious marks that were to be tha  Btgnal of the breaking,, of the prohibition against the door being opened. \  \ This was all that the lawyer's dutjrj  required of him. But his curiosity)  iWao increased by the sight of the vault  and Its massive structure. He examine  ed It closely. He noted how nicely ^that  door fitted, and wondeied as to its  thickness. He scanned keenly the man-  alve masonry that surrounded^ it, an a  mentally concluded that no such solid)  structure could have been built for a  trifling'purpose. Why had old Magnus  Rolff had It built? This question came  up m his mind, and set him to tiying  to weave a theory to explain it.' Ha  concluded that It must have been intended for the deposit of some precious  treasure. Public gossip may be mora  than half right about it, he thought*  A. smile flitted across his face as he  called to mind the superstitious report  that no one could enter it, or handle its  contents except he sold himself to the  devil "Suppose I should be the one to  nutwlt the , devil," he exclaimed mentally, and again the smile flitted acroaa  his face.       \ ' I  ��� "Rather a. queer piece of masonry*  this?" he said 7 in ,an inquiring tone,  turning to old Carl, after having fini  lahed his Inspection of the vault..,,' ''  . "I don't know," responded the old)  man; "it is according to how you looto  at it-." ' > .    -   ���    -     - ~ i  '."Well, how do you look at It, If I may}  be so bold as to enquire?" responded  the' lawyer. In an inquisitive tone. ' |  I "Aa a very simple matter, without al  bft of mystery ahout it," was the reply. "In their better days, the family)  had many, valuable articles, and it wag  very natural that a great house like  this should have a private strong place,''  where valuable papers or articles could!  be kept safe from prying eyes and fire.'*  1 "So, so���very keen, very sagacious,,  Mr. Crum," replied the lawyer, who  ���aw at once that old Carl was not disposed to encourage him in any curiosity about the vault. "And now, if it  Is just as agreeable to you, I should"/  like to be left alone here a few mo-  I ments, that I may carry out certain]  ' Instructions of your young master." (  Mr. Saybrook had taken a fancy that?  he would like to closely examine the  old cellar, and hence his request to ba  left alone. -' ��� , - ��� t  But old Carl had no notion of indulg*  Ing him in his curiosity. i  I" "It would afford you little pleasure,!  methinks, to be left alone here in ihe  flark," he answered. "I cannot leave.  **ou the lantern, as I am.giowing old���  and it is not safe for me to be wandering around In the datk passages abovo  without a light." ��        -  j  ' "I will light you up the stairs and?  ihrough the passage, if that is all," am  iwered the,lawyer, "and then return*  tnd fulfill my duty here." K  ' Seeing that any attempt to evade th'O)  request would v prove useless, the eld  man replied, somewhat bluntly: t  I "It is not In accordance with my in-'  structions to leave you alone here." I  [ "Instructions from whom?" demand-  id the lawyer, sharply. |  r "That question oencerns me and notf  reu," responded the old man, with al  luspiclon of warmth in his tone. "Butf  to save words, I will say that my In-,  ItorMotiens were to accompany you down!  here onoe each year, on New Tear'a.  Day, until Z received orders to the contrary; but under no circumstances to  lllow any one In here alone, or, In f&ctf  ^o allow anybody In here except your-]  lelf, at the time and In the manner S  have stated." {  I Anthony Baybrook was too shrewd}  to pick a quarrel with the old man un-l  ler the circumstances. He was our-)  prised and annoyed that Claude shouUJ  save left any such Instructions, but a)  moment's reflection convinced him than  It did not necessarily imply any sua-'  ���lelen of himself, but might have beei*  the rosult of extra care In so instruct-j  log old Carl that he would guard well  the vault. ^  I "Well, Trail, Mx. Crum, we will nof  auarrel over the matter," he made  haste to reply. "Please hand me youo,  lantern a moment, and I will moral  carefully perform my duty of inspao-  tlon." A  I The old man handed him the lantern'  Mid he critically examined the vaultf  iffaln, and, In doing It, managed io so  throw the light as to allow It to pene-1  Irate tho reaesoes of the old cellar. But?  ihe furtive glimpses of dark recesies  tn.the htfivy atone wall, and of tlw��  iteps In ^the outer wall, afforded him  ��nly so much    satisfaction    as to increase his curiosity.   In a far corner, j  he  sat'   what    seemed    to be  several  heavy chests piled one upon another. I  He would have given a good round sum ?  to have stayed and critically examined c  lhe old cellar, but Carl's eyes were fixed  on him with a steady and observing; '  gaze,  so  hs suppressed  his  curiosity.  ! ind handing hack the lantern, followed  hia guide up to the great hall1 again-  teerc ba tocrk: a prompt leave, and was'  an hla'way heme again.' i  I "The ol* watch dog,"'he muttered,  aa he strode along, "he was suspicious'  tf me aa If he knew my secret resolves.

I   "     ,  I Old Farmer Bruyn returned home'  *u,ther late one evenlng'from the village, '  lomo ten weeks after Claude's departuro  for Europe, and 'cnteied the family  room, with its bluelsh whitewashed  walls and san-'ed 'loot*, where his wlfo  ind daughter Rosa were sitting beside  t stand busily bowing and knitting.  A cloud was on hl& b>ow. His squarc-  'tut, heavy face, with Its natural expression of obstinacy and self-will, appeared  iterner than was Its wont, and his countenance more flushed than usual. Truth*  to tell, he had spent a portion of tlio  svenlng In Lawyer Sajybrook's office,  tnd that w*i thy 1 ^d produced a bottle  >f old wine,/and, on his way,home, he*  had'*stopped at Ronk's Tavern,, and 3  brimming glass of hot punch had added  lo tho fevor in his blood and brain.' It  fVas not the custom of the old farmer to  Indulge very, freely In strong drink; but  Indulgence was the habit of the tlme3,  tnd he had found himself unable to refuse the hospitality of his'fiiend the  lawyer/ On his way home he had stopped at Ronk's Tavern, which was also  lhe post-office' of the little place. v A letter was handed him, with a European  postmark, and directed to Rosa, in ,hl9  ��are. He studied the superscription intently, and a * cloud gatheied on hte  brow._ After a time he called for a glass'  ��f punch, and tossing it off, left the tav-  im and bent his steps homeward.  ' Mrs. Bruyn had- gazed up mildly  through her heavy silver-bowed'specta-  ile& as her husband entered. She saw  tt once that something'' had disquieted  dim, and, with womanly tact, bade Rosa'  it onoe to bring his slippers, while she  opened the door of a little closet, set in  the wall almost out of her reach, and  produced his tobacco pouch and pipe,  tnd placed them beside him on the table  near which he'took his seat. ���  > A pleasant, mild-faced woman was  Mrs. Bruyn. It was easy to see where  Rosa1 had got her clear complexion, her  ({quid blue eyes and her soft brown  hair. A-round. full face small and regular features! ajid an expiesslon of,patient cheerfulness chaiacterlzed the  .Bountenanoe of the good dame; and,  ivlthal. It was evlde"nt that she was a  woman of more than usual intelligent  and refinement. How, then, could she'  have ever mairled the''rough," rather  searse,'domineering old farmer? Ah,  ��uch mysteries are among the commonest of human life, and it is as well to ask  why flowers will bloom and vines trail  ever the'roughest and most uncouth  rocks. ��� '     '    -s  Farmer Bruyn filled and lit his pipe,  and drew his chair up to the blazing log  fire, and puffed away without apparently reaching a much more peaceful  frame of mind. Rosa. after a time, lighted a candle, kissed her parents goodnight, and retired to bed. After she  had been gone some few minutes tho  farmer drew the letter,-from his pocket,  and, turning to his wife, handed it to  heVr ���    T- -     -   [    .    ( J     :  1 She .took It. studied the outside for a  tew moments through her spectacles,  and then said:  ( "Why, it must be fiom Claude."  1 "Yes," replied the old man, his face  growing perceptibly redder, "the villain  ���to write to her without my consent'���  yes, without even ever having so much  as spoken to me about her. Huh1 he'd  carry things with a high hand. He's a  bold one���a high-headed one. He'll ruin  my daughter, eh?���the spendthrift,(the  rake, the vagabond! Well, we'll see.  He'll find I know how to measure such  worthless rogues as he Is, aye, and to  match them, too." l  Mrs. Bruyn did not Immediately reply. Her cheerful face grew pale and  quiet, and she seemed to be thinking  deeply. Finally she said as she handed  back the epistle:  "The letter is directed in your care,  husband. Surely, there is nothing so  wrong in that; he evidently did no* intend to evade your knowing of his writing. Besides, you know he has been  brought up as a neighbor's son, and he  and Rosa played together as children."  ; "The more reason that he should treat  ma with the respect due me," answered  the farmer, puffing fleicely on his pipe.  "X once had a notion for the lad; but���  jao���what's bred In the bone will come  eut rathe fleeh. He's gone to the wrong,  and few pride will carry him to the devil  all the sooner because he's had a fine  property left him to waste. I've heard  enough of his recklessness and hia  beast* of how he would run wild once  he got out In the world. But Isn't tt  enough for him to scatter and riot without breaking our innocent girl's heart?  No, n�����the scamp; I'll match him. Look  ye, wife, she must never hear of this  letter. I'm afraid that she's only too  tan& at him now. There must be no  jnore of it. It's gone too far. Now he's  away, and scattering his wild oats, let's  have an end of it. It's easy now to nip  the thing In the bud. There!"  j With this exclamation he gave the  Offending letter a toss among the flames  of the great, crackling fire, where it  blazed up a moment, then twhstod and  curled, red and glowing, the superscription standing out with luminous dig.  tlnctness fer a minute, showing Claude's  bold and neat c'hirography, an* then 11  faded, and tie fiery folds of the fat**  epistle grew dark, then white and fee>th<  ery, anil ^rera-t whirled up the chimney  or found a resting place among the  ehlnks of the logth >  , "That settles the matter," he muttered. ."Bo I'Jl treat any more of them,  If he has the Impudence to send them.'  ���TIs the host way. The girl will soon  forget him, and we must see to it that  her next beau is steady and worthy."  i Mrs. Bruyn did not reply at once. She  sat still and apparently somewhat stupefied by her, husband's hasty action.  Long habit had accustomed her never to  'oppose or even criticize his whims; but  now, as she slowly took in the situation,  her face flushed slightly, and after o  moment she said:  1 "It seems to me'that it would be better not to attempt to conceal anything  from Rosa, but to treat her as If we had  confidence In her and could trust her. J  feel certain that she would never be dls-  posed to oppose our wishes in any way;  but our deception, If she should ever  discover It, might be the means of hardening her feelings towards us. Jie-  ���ldes, I am disposed to think that you  Judge of Claude harshly. He has tie��n  unwise, no doubt, but I do not believe  ho would do anything wicked or ci 1ml.  sal. We should not believe every bit ol  Idle gossip we hear about him."  Farmer Bruyn raised his eyebrowsT  slightly, and gazed at his wife a moment  with the faintest suspicion of surprise in  Chia countenance. Then be ' said dog*  gedly:  "My mind is mad a up. ,That boy ii  out out for'a rascal, and I know it. in  two years from now ho will hav��> wasted  1 every cent of his property, and be noth.  ' Ing but an Idle, penniless vagabond.' Bui  he's Just got the face and tongue to lm-  pose upon women; and you're>no mora  to be truuted than Rosa to see him as he  'Is. That glr' has, Just got her' head  turned about him' I can_see It, plain  tnough; and if he's allowed to write to  ter she'will soon be beyond cure.- No,'  lo; it won't do to play with this'matter. *  'lust let us burn the letters, and say ,  nothing about it, and in a year he will  save forgot all aboutther and she about *  aim; and so there'll be an end of it.

Let that be the end of IU'  The least said the soonest mended."  -With this wise saw by way of conclu-  ilon. Farmer Bruyn 'placed,his pipe  Dack in his mouth, closed his lips over  't, and began puffing In a way that said  ts plainly as words-that the discussion)  was through as far as he was concerned, and that nothing could change hia  tnlnd. , '     ���     i      ,'* <  ��� Mrs. Bruyn saw that further argument would be wasted upon him. in hia  present state of mind, so she remained  ���till, though a gentle sigh told of the;  Unquiet of her breast, and her brows'  cnltted as though she were deeply con*  ilderlng the matter in all its bearings.

In fact, he conducted an industrious correspondence. Tho  mail service of the time was not very  regular or frequent, but it was for that  reasgp all the better adapted to the  peculiar game of" haiards~that "the unworthy member of an honorable and  useful profession had resojved to play.  ��� The first object Mr. Saybrook had in  view from his correspondence w^s to  secure the removal of old Carl Crum'  from the guardianship of Rolff House.

My Dear Mr. Saybrook: Yours of the'  2d of last month was duly received. I  must express my satisfaction at the  promptness with whleh you have satis-  fled my curiosity in a matter that necessarily caused me considerable anxiety. I begin to be a thorough convert  to your theory of my aunt's last instructions. Perhaps my interests as  well as my Judgment Incline me to the  opinion; for I must confess that after  a short experience in this pleasant old  Italian city. In the puisult of my chosen  art, I would view with particular distaste any developments that would call  for my early return to my native country. I trust I am too patriotic to ever  think of adjuring or depreciating myi  native land; yet I mi^st confess that  Europe Is the only place for the young  artist, and I fear that I must either,  abandon the study of art or else spend/  several years here. '  It gives me great pleasure to know)  that you bo thoroughly approve of myj  objeot In coming here.

Your statement as to your reception  by Carl Crum has caused me considerable anxiety of mind. I must confess  that the faithful old fellow waa simply)  following my instructions. But 2 can  easily understand how his very falth-  fulneaa to what he deems my interest  might have led him to assume an im-i  talent ami! even overbearing deeneanea  toward yen.

Another way,  and this is  , 'tha, Southern style of the cook books,  ���serves them in a sort of stew. The Boston Cooking School gives the follow-  *i -3ng as the procedure in such preparation.   Into a large flat-bottomed sauce-  ipan or cooking pot, put two tablespoon-  "fulB of butter and one   of sugar.

When the lower  3ayers are brown, change them'to tho  ftop, letting the others brown.   By tho  time both are done, the water will havo  1 Evaporated, leaving a very little butter  sauce to  pour over the  potatoes  in  -aervlnjj.

What  the Dlsmmitllnj; of an Old  "Clonic  , i Taiinhe.i.  'If every young couple, rich as well  as poor, could be brought face to faao  with the accumulations of family lilo  which have extended over two generations, they would find themselves  freed from many an unsatisfied cra^inj;  and cease from nourishing many coveU  ��us desires.  At a recent "bargain sale" of furniture in a gieat shop, thero was a  noticeable sprinkling of very young  purchasers; so few years had passed  over their heads that a looker on felt  perplexed to imagine the stripling husband and the girl wife seated at the  head and loot of the dining tables they  weie scrutinizing.' They walked apait'to  consult as to whether they could make  the slender purse co'ver the additional  ten dollars which was demanded for  some bit of mirror inserted in the  aldeboad or an extra monstrosity of  machine carVing on tho back of tho  chairs. Everywhere around them were  more conspicuous, more expensive,  more showy things; stretch thoir few  dollars to their utmost limit, the girl '  wife's eyes still wandered covetously'to '  the things out of reach. All the joy of  their plenishing was dulled by a desiro  for the unattainable. t-The young man's  face lost its eagernessT after all, he ',  could not give his bride her'heart's '  .desiro   . ' j  There was an ascending scale of .  price; a distinct demarcation of ascend-  degrees of wealth, but a common look  ofiregret that each in turn,could not  have something yet finer than the best  Within their, reach. Descending to tho  elevator with tho looker-on a brown ,  young farmer, holding with distinctive  American courtesy his vain little wife's  white silk parasol (!) loolced utterly  disheartened. She who had^chosen this  absurd piece of finery for the country  road had'evidently been unwilling'to '  (have anything he was able to give  her. Her heart had been won by curious adornments and the glitter pi glass. ,  By sharp contrast the observer had  been called to decide what'was of real  value, what of little worthy from tlio  stored belongings of a large family,  who had gathered accretions of material things from the four quarters of  .the globe. If there is a method of  teaching the folly of accumulation, it  fs this stern one of sitting in judgment j  upon the taste and value of the result j  of fifty,years of family purchasing and  boarding.  One thing stands out in strong and incontrovertible   evidence;      only     the  simple radically good things   are   of  any permanent value.

Now I know that they exist,  -and since I have slept in these shivery  Spanish"beds,' in these refrigerator Spanish bedrooms, in these'vault-like Spanish  hotels, I bless the man who invented  warming-pans. As "you go along the  gloomy corridors of these sepulchral hotels, your footfalls'echoing through* tho  arches above you,,with a bone-searching  cold rising up from'the stone floor under  you, you see rows of (hot-Water ��� bags,'  coyly clad in red flannel, hanging by' the  awkward doorknobs of rthe clumsy Spanish doors.

They did it ipluctairt-  Iy, but they did it. In London, Paris,  Geneva,, Lucerne, on the Riviera, and in  some Koraan hotels you now find central  heating systems. Not so in the smaller  hotels of Southern Italy, of Spain, of  Greece, and of tho'-'Levanlt. There the  unfortunate tourists slowly freeze..  So I believe that.the Nor.tJh Pole,is  somewhere   around   the   Mediterranean, ^  and when I look,back over the lapse of*  years  to 'Jimmy .Massey-and  his-geo-'  graphical heterodoxies, I have' a fellow-  feeling for him.  In some of these hotels you occasionally find a queer stove. It would be'  amusing���if you did not yourself live in  the hotel���to see tihe miscellaneous way  in which the lop of the stove is*used.  Guests come to warm uheir hands, and  2-0 sway leaving their gloves on the  stove. They set down books, hats,_ flowers and packages there. In the dining-  saloon the waiters put dishes on  the stove'while serving���not to heat  them, but 'using it merely as a table. I  have iTotiosd, however, that they never  leave the so-called "warm" dishes there  ���perhaps they fear they might get cold;  or then perhaps, on the other hand, they  fear they might get hot.  Tho landlords of these cold hotels display a touching solicitude jibout the  stove. Every man has his weak point.  Some millionaires hate to pay for postage stamps. The landlord of a big hotel  over here often spends half of his time  trying to keep the servants from putting  too much fuel on the fire. To prevent  Americans and other pyromaniacs from  meddling with the fuel they often keep  the coal-bin locked. ' It is a touching  spectacle to see a gioup- of Americans  shivering around a little, stove; to see  tlie servant enter, take out a key, and  unlock the; to see tihe freezing  Americans grow excited as he puts two  or three teaspoonfuls of .coal in the  stove, and then losks tlie bin again; to  see the gimlet eye of a Granada landlord fastened on him from the office;  then to sec the hapless Americans sink  back into their overcoat collars, and  wish they were "back home in God's  country."  As an incident of the desperation to  which these cold hotels drive people, I  once saw in a Levantine hotel an elderly  spinster seat herself in front of the stove  in the men's smoking-room with her hair  down, while an elderly female friend  gave her a dry shampoo. To the suggestion of the scandalized servants���Mohammedan males���'that she should finish  tMs intimate toilet operation) in her own  room, she replied briefly thai >hc had  found the only warm place in the hotel  and she proposed to finish the shampoo  .there.   Which she did.  Kxarclae for tlio  Voice.  Exercise is a powerful factor In tho  development of tho voice. It should  to taken in the open air. ChiHi-en, like  caged birds, lose their song. Exercise  ds born of the free field and pastoral  bills. A loud shout means a long  oreath; a rapid race, many deep ones.  Thus are the receptacles of the great  aerial storehouse, opened, enabling us  to keep on tap that which is tho very,  essence of speech, without which no  sound can be sustained. It is a fact  that people reared in the country havo  clearer and ampler voices than those  city bred. The voices of southern nations possess invariably more music  and more volume than those of tho  Surgery Seven Hundred Years Ago.  Surgical operations were performed on  tho human skull in America two hundred years before the coming of Columbus, says the Toledo "Blade." The work  was done in those early days with the  aid ot shells and flint (hatchets. Many  skulls have been discovered in Peru  which illustrate the methods of these  early surgeons. From the appearance of  the skull it is also evident that a considerable proportion of those operated upon  lived afterward. This trephining was  probably performed to save the lives of  those who had received a serious wound  from a club or a atone. Considering that  the sttrgfeona of those early days worked  with nothing more effective than sharp  Shells or flint knives, the work is exceed-.'  ianuie" of Il.idaon Bay had an' experience  In a forest fire which could hardly be  equaled in scope and fierceness farther  south, where the woods are broken by  settlements. "Tlie men had pushed far  to the north of Port Nelson into a land  Inhabited by'tribes of Indians, where no  white man had lefW trace. Their story,  as''given in the "Youth's Companion,"  continues as follows:  '  We had crossed the mouth of a stream,  he says, which forked twice some dis-  tanco from where'it opens into tho bay,  making two long, narrow deltas. -By  sundown wo had gone a mile or so north  of the upper branch. Tlie 'air giew hot  and dry. Tlie light in' the western sky  was more denso and solid than that ,of  tho sunset, and it'extended louud to tho  north beyond tlie range of the setting  sun. Wo knew thut it was a fire, and  halted on a rising slop<>, where we could  get a broader view of the sky.  Tho wind was from , tho north-west,  and the fire must be coming straight,to-  waid us. In tlie hope of icaching one  of the deltas of tlie stream which we had  crossed about a mile to tlie south, we  turned back and walked for our lives, i  * We reached the upper branch1 of the  stream before tlie lire overtook us,  crossed it, and sat panting on tho southern shore. The sun had set, and the. fire  marked its limits in a wide sweep covering tlie norMi'-west. . *,       I  As we sat'waiting, the brush, across  the s'tream crackled, and live or six deer  broke from the woods and stood ,on the  bank, sniffing. r  The air giew dense. A dull roar like a  distant suif was blown-to us from the  north. I climbed half-way up a small  tree,'and then I saw a sight. Perhaps  five miles away came the fire, a sea oi  red flame under a.wall of smoke that  rolled on in advance. L  Before, I 'descended from the tiee the  3moke was on us. One of my compan  ions, noting that the trees on the delta  were of a smaller growth, thought we'  were safer on the lower delta, with two  strips of water and an island'between us  i and the fire. So" we moved on a few hundred yards to .the, next mouth1 of the  stream.  We were wrapped in smoke. Tlie rooi  of the fire grew like a storm.

Ashes and cinders settled over us, an<1  we bowed our heads close to tlie watei  The heat grew intense. , Then with r  stride the fire burst over tlie northeiu  bank. We waded to the south shore ant,'  waited. " Our coats grew hot on om  heads, and we "ducked" again and again  I turned and looked at the file.

Suddenly I raised'my head, and'saw  the flames like clouds of five leap ovpi  our heads and seize the tops of the tree.'  on tlie southern bank. The fire had  jumped the stream.  For an hour we stayed in the waiter  waiting for the fire to burn out on th't  northern shore. A great weariness and  stupor weighed us down. Piesently wc  felt the air grow clearer and cooler. Ii  was raining, and we dragged' ourselves  to the northern bank, where we lay witl  our noses close to the baked earth ana  slept.  Afterward we learned that the fire had  ruined a stretch of timber-three bundled  miles long and seventy-five miles wide, a  tract as long as from Boston to Buffalo,  and half as wide again as the north-and-  south breadth of Massachusetts.

The Carnegie Institute has granted  P.OOO to the pathological laboratories of  the University of t Pennsylvania to aid  In the Investigation of snake poison which  Is groins on there, says The New York  tribune. Upon lines that Dr. S. Weir  Mitchell suggested, Dr! Simon Flexner  and Dr. HIdeyo Nosruohl have been study-  oiff at'the university for two years the  renom of cobras, rattlesnakes and "other >  poisonous reptiles. Highly interesting are  the experiments that iin the course of  their work these ^ two scientists have  made. They believe''that it is possible in  time to discover for each kind of venom  an antidote.  , '        ,,'.<*  t The choroforming of a 'snake and tho '  extraction of its poison while it lies unconscious i are an operation trequently  performed and interesting to see. The  snake Is first seized with lasso' about  tho middle. Tho lasso Is a leather loop at  the end, of a stick like a broomstick, and  the tightening of tho loop holds tho snake  securely. After It is caught. Its head is  pinned down to a table with, a notched ,  stick that is pressed upon Us neck. A  tubo ono and one-half Inches In diameter  containing ' a sponge satuiated with  chloroform is slipped over tho snake's  head, as,a glove Is slipped over a linger,  and soon tlio reptile is unconbclous. An  assistant then seizes 11 i>y tho neck,  and slips tho odge of si saucer under lis  upper Jaw In such re manner mh to elovato  the two fangs. Those fangs now Ho, ns  it were,'upon tho saucer, Tho opera tot  takes them ono at a time, between the  thumb and foi dinger of his ri'dit hand,  and.stilps thorn forward���Hquou/.os thom,  that is to say, from tho base to tho tip���  and thU3 all thoir , venom is extracted.  This venom, yollow, and of tho thlckuoHH  of molassos, runs out upon tho saucor.  and It is gathorcd In a vial and aoalcd  'up. * ,,-'',  In tho exporlmonts with live nnlmnls  that the university curries, It Is thought  best to Inject tho venom hypodarmlcfuly,  rather than to allow tho snulco Itself to  'do tho injoctlng In tho ordinary mannor  with its fangs, because a snake does not  always strlko effectively. - Somotlmos it  fail3 to elovnto Its fangs*sufllclently to  inject into Its victim moro than n drop i  or two of vonom. Sometimes It strikes  fiercely, nnd its teeth aro actually fastened for a moment In tho animal's* flosh,  but the fangs aro doubled backward, and ,  not a drop of venom is Injected into the  wound. * yet, to all appearances, tho bite  has been a terrible one, and-an experimenter, , administering to the �� wounded  animal a certain "antidote, ,would decide  that this antidote wna' a* marvellously  potentr one���would hold it to have cured  the animal Immediately���when, as a matter of fact, there would 'hnvp heeninoth-  lng the matter with the animal from the  beginning.  1 On small animals the effect of a- small  .dose of venom is almost immediately  fatal. A pigeon, for instance, on receiving'an Injection of three or four dmps,  walks a few steps, crouches, gasps, rolls  over on its side and in one oi two minutes, sometimes In less than one minute,  is stone dead. '  On a larger animal, such as a doij, the  poison   does   not   act   so   powerfullv.     A  thirty-one pound bull terrier was low ered  into a rattlesnake's cage and was bitten   -  on   the  right  leg,   near  tho .thie-h.    Tho  bite was a thorough one.

But the snake was so pinioned  that he could not strike the thick boot  that held him fast. Professor ,Brewer,  held that rattlcsnako's bond down with  his tripod and out it off. Then he cut off  his rattles. Stepping aside, he saw the  body of the snikc, partlv coiled, lying  very still. Taking out his rule to mei-  suro Its length, the -professor took hold  of the serpent to straighten him out.

'l        Beware of "Absolute."
Whatever may be tho merits or, demerits of "absolutely unique"—and it may
be noted that the Prime Minister, Mr.
Balfour, employed this term in describing
the tenure of the Colonial Office by Mr.
Chamberlain—there is no doubt that "absolutely" Is the most overworked adverb
In our vocabulary. Among politicians especially the word Is used In the most
careless way ; Mr. Balfour, In his brief
speech, employed It twice' But It Is not
for newspapers to sneer at politicians in
this respect. Only the other day, in a news
agency telegram printed In several evening Journals, the woi ld was Informed that
there was an.official assurance from the
Vatican that the lumor of the Pope's
death was "absolutely without foundation." With this one may compare Mark
Twain's comment upon the report of his
own death—that It was "much exaggerated." ,

on some occasions, <;ays The Washington Star. Several anecdotes had been
related of the wonderful intellect of
canines, when an army officer, who is
connected with'the cavalry arm of the
service, stepped into the ring and
squared himself for a good one. He is
something of a sportsman and knows
a good dog when he sees one, so that
his story was listened to with more
than usual interest by his friends.—"It
was down in Texas several years ago
that I came across the greatest dog'I
ever saw or heard of," he said. "The
animal belonged to a friend of mine
and was the greatest* quail dog "you
ever saw. We have taken that dog out
day after day and lie would never go
wrong, and would point quail in the
imost unlooked-for -places. One day we

along. As we were walking along the
road carelessly a.wfill-drcsscd stranger

an aiticle contiiujtcd to "Cosmos"
(Paris), by M. A. Peies, we leain that
the nail-biters have been dignified by Dr.
Berillon with a jaw-bieaking name, that
of "onychophagea." Says tlie authoi: _
i "In one school,in Paris, of 265 pupils
examined, there were found 63 nail-bit-
ers, or one in five. In a high sdhoolbhe
proportion was a little lower. \ Examination of 100 school children inra village
in the department of the Yonnei showed
tout three nail-biters, tout >vo. a mixed
school of the' same department, of 29
boys there were 6 biters (20 per cent.),
and of 21 girls there were 11 -(52 per
cent). In a secondary school for girls, of
207 pupils, 01 bit their noils. . . .
About 25 per >• cent, of children of both
sexes probably have this, bad'habit.
"Now this habit is'.not only unpleasant; it has the effect/says,Dr. Berillon,
of constantly carrying to the mouth
dusty iraaional gathered in the hand.
This ingestion of pathogenic microbes is
a, source of various ills! Besides, tlie
'horny, material of the nail (keratin) is
toxic, or at least'emetic This is why
Ittail-bitftrs are often attacked by intestinal troubles.   .   i   .
"Various means have been proposed
to cure children'of,'this mania; many
physicians advise the smearing of the
fingers with a bitter substance like aloes
'or quinine, but this'is not always effective.   . T   . ]n
"The "gnawers 'of penholders, whom 'it
has not been thought necessary to decorate with a Greek name, are yet more
numerous than the 'onychophagea' In
lone provincial school' 38 per cent, were
found; in a girls' college, 59 out•>of'207

Talamon has'added another,'that' of
thread-eaters.' Let us hear him: /l have
just observed bhe following case of a
young girl of eighteen, a'dressmaker . . i
who was under my care for a slight indisposition, when the nurse told me that
the patient passed'her time in gnawing
at her woolen fichu. . *. . In four oi
.five days -a.third of the garment had
.been eaten. The patient told,,us that
in the previous September, beang in the
[country and at leisure, she had eaten a
whole fichu in less than a month.' . . .
1 "This observation is not isolated; the
habit of gnawing cloth or thread is certainly very frequent among workers with
the needle, but it has not yet -received
sufficient, attention, although it may
have given^rise to much graver troubles
than nail-biting.
"The biting manias seem to be in the
icaibegory of those in which the victims

'who have given the a particular study
believe that the sJtomach is not the cause
,ond that thtey are rather due to psychic
disorder, -which may even be hereditary
and contagious by example.
*"It is rare,' says Dr. Berillon, 'not
to find among the ancestors or friends of
^those who have these habits others who
ore also addicted to them.' When we
have said that the biting habit is a neu-
'ropathio symptom, the remedy is at once
'indicated, namely, recourse to hypnotic

A certain man of letters entertained

Professor Smythe and Professor Browne,
who were seated side by side and were

oblivious of each other's presence, whilo

Professor Smythe, being rather a sensitive man, presently became cognizant
of the attention he was inviting on himself. Therefore, crashing lua enmity for

Quebec, Aug. 10. — (Special) —One-
more remarkable cure has been marked up to the credit of Dodd's Kidney Pills in this city. John Ball,
bricklayer, of 57 Little Champlain
street, is the man cured. Interviewed
regarding the matter he said:
"I have been troubled with Lumbago for two years and could not do

Similar cures by Dodd's Kidney

it seems safe to say that Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure any form of Kidney Complaint or any disease caused'
by disordered Kidneys.
