It was a-grand morn-  ���������log tbe old .mountains showed up in  great style; the dogs went flying up the  river bed, the ice being smooth as glass,  and*we sat on our sleds wondering why  people thought the Skagway. trail so bad,  but your mind is soon satisfied. You  strike a canyon at the foot of which is  Porcupine Hill, where the trail leaves the  river and goes oyer the hill. We put both  teams llf <*jn<e load and went over o.k.,  rfx^ving'complements on the way our  dogs pulled.

Put our tent'  up, got our dogs fed, fed our own faces,  rolled up in our robes tired and sore after  our first day on the Skagway trail.. -,���������  Started early next morning, the-, trail  good for for quite a distance.   Soon left  the river bed and struck over a series qf'  b*U*,v������ did sot know where we were,  going; one loses half the time passing.  people.   We went as far as White Horse  Pa-kS, left sleds and started back for our  other things; the dogs flying, half the  time we were using the seat of our pants  for a toboggan.   Before reaching csmp  we had just started up one of those hills  with a bench  trail  on one side and U������e  river 300 feet below on the other, at the  foot of this hill is the White   Pass Hotel.  An old man with an ox started down, the  ox going fast as possible, the old man  yelled for to stop him.    1 have stopped.  wedges in foot ball games, so I tried to  ���������������������������top the ox.    He walked ovt?r the doga  never touching them, stepped all around  me, struck the sled, fell and rolled to the  bottom   cf the  hill.    People   who saw,  thought 1 woald be killed, but I took off  my cap, showed a luxuriant growth of  hair with a fair,  part in the. middle, and  told them I once played  foot bull; they  nodded and passed on.   That night slept  warm as toast in our robes ������t the foot of.  White  Horse Cnnyon   to   the   tune   of  Willie   West's song with the following  jfords:  ln the morn at five we arose  Put on pur frozen clothes,  Hitched our faithful dogs  To travel over ice and logs,  Then with smiles and uncombed locks  We pulled on our Germ in socks,  A������d climbed the Skagway trail  On Sunday morning.  The way winds up almost purpendicu-  lar, in places, a bench trail; I think the  worst part on the road just before, we  reach the ford, only a mile from qur  camp.

Passed' the police carrying two dead  men, and two 'sick--who afterwards died  ���������to Skagway. This is an usual oceir  rence; passers will yell out, "What! you  got, a stiff?" "Yes," or "One on^ the  . way."  In places only two feet wide our sleds  go to the bottom many times and have  to be reloaded. We lost one sled in the  canyon, it was blowing hard and awfully  cold, so we ^left it. When we reached  the Summit I was'exhausted, both checks  were frozen, and we had lost our tent on  the sl<*d that went over. . There was a  fine old man camped there, who .rubbed  my frozen face with snow and gave us  something warm to eat, and drink. He  let us sleep in his tent that night, the  coldest I ever experienced. The . tent  was small, so we slept on his supplies;  We had to dig ourselves out next/  morning. Our dogs were covered with  snow but m fairly good trim except one  that afterwards died. Many a time after-  starting back for our goods, we. went  over and over the hills,' dogs and all.  Troubles are nothing arid as the Mounted Police have no authority on this side,  we have no policeman to tell them to.  We finally landed at Lake Bennett, which  is more or less down hill and you go  like ������������������.'.Well, I won't stop to tell more  of the ups and downs we expenencee on  on the famous Skagway Trail.  If any one comes up here to go over  he can do it, but he will wish he was in  Hel ena���������I mean Tacoma-rand the man  who.Xalks against his own town, will be  glad to get back to it.  Our dogs only hit the high places. In  good weather make the trip from Skagway'to the Lake in four days. We will  pack all we can get over the trail, and  expect to get all we can pack.

'  J i. {CONTINUED.')       '        ''     4    -  ] But she did hesitate, not knowing just  rhow to tell him that; sho was Doctor,  Heath's friend^n spite of-appearances-,  without telling, or revealing otherwise  too much. How could she'set the ma'tter  before him, as she wished him  to  see it?  ',     Seeing   her   hesitate, Ray unwittingly  came .to the rescue, land Constance seized'  upon tho   idea); he ^gave; her, with hasty  eagerness, little-thinking of   the   results,  that wre to follow her .implied deceit.',.  "I can't feci too grateful for your confidence at any price," he said, laughing-  ��������� ly; "when I '���������think how Lamotte glow-  J ered at ' me ^ .when he saw me coming  I here. But, then, if rumor- speaks .the  | truth, ke-hn-s->a right to , be jealous, eh,  Constance?"  <   Here was a way out of   hor   dilemma;  let Ray imagine her   engaged' to   Frank  j Lamotte. and he would  not ������������������ misconstrue  j her   interest, in    Doctor   Heath; as, for  i Frank, he had been a suitor, and a most  and   thoughtful  then   she   came  troublesome one, for so long that she  thought nothing of appropriating him to  herself, as a matter of convenience, and  only for the moment, and she never  thought at all of the injury she might do  herself by this deception.  "Oh, yes!" she replied; "I have given  Frank the right to be as jealous as he  pleases." And the hot blood flamed into  hor cheek, as she saw how readily he had  taken, her cwprds as she' ha'd meant them  to be''understood.' ' [  "Xainotte's a lucky fellow," said Ray,  "although11 know a better man I would  like to see in his shoes. But we won't  quarrel over Frank. Is it him that I am  to serve?-", 'jf;,- ���������      /   ' ;,   ,       ;  "No,"    she   replied,  "coloring"   again.  r AndVonce more he  misapplied   her   con-  ! fusion.  Constance was   silent  j for a few moments, and  I directly to1 the point: ���������'  j ''Some-strange things'have come to my  ' knowledge,, concerning . Doctor . Heath,  t Ray. ..They have, come in 'such a manner  that JI'would be' in a measure violating  the confidence of another were I to make  a statement , in ,full, and. yet���������in some  way Doctor Heath must know that danger" meiiarices him."'  '-'Ah!" uttered' Ray Vandyck,and Constance, '- lifting -: her eyes to ��������� his v face,  caught, a fleeting look that caused  her'to ask suddenly:���������  ''���������Ray, have you hoard anything about  Doctor Heath?-anything strange, I mean,  or tuiexpected?'-',  ,.  "Why,"replied' Ray, slowly.    "I have  nothing   -very .strange   to   relate,    but-r-  Heathls encounter with   Burrill a   short  f time since has'made'some talk.''  P     V-1 don'-t understand you."  "Then is it not about, this affair that  you have sent^for me?"   ,'  " Ray,' explain yourself.      What of this  'affair,'-'as you call it?"    *'���������/.   ������  '.'Why,- you vsee," began .Ray, plunging  f into, his���������re.cital after a fashion peculiar to  khimself,''"'about a week ago,'yes, it' was  f quite1 a week "ago", on that 'stormy blustering iMonday, night, when sensible   people  staia^,indoors,. Heath, after   the   manner  of1  doctors,"was'   straggling   about'that  lovely   precinct' known as-Mill   avenue,  tryingj to .find the shortest way out   after  paying,a visit to some sick child, or  woman, I won't swear which; as I was saying, he   was   on ��������� his way   out   of   that  blessed avenue, -when ho   heard   screams  coming from the cottage he was 'passing.  It was the' voice of a woman, and  Heath  made for" the house, and rushed   in   just  in#ime'to:sce,that latest addition, to society, Jlr.,-jjohn,,., Burrill,   in   a   state   of  partial, intoxication, raining "blows  about  the iiead;';"an'd'"'-*shoulders of; the   woman  ���������who?was';once his wife..;Heath ;rained one  blow upon him and he went down under.  it. ;."���������';. Then "tie got up, not quite   satisfied'  and' tnirsting-for��������� more fight';' and  Heath;  felled shim'once? more. -;-y :['->oc : ��������� u ���������'���������.". t':������--V  [ "It���������fseepis that the, thing had been done  so rapidly, that Burrill had not had time  to get'a.fair look at the face of his assailant;'" but the'second time he scrambled to  his.feet;'Heath;, stood '.'.facing,...Mm   full,  braced, and ready, when, behold, Burrill,  af������er,one Took",'turns as pale 'as a spectre;  utters a yell of fear, and   dashes   out   of  Ithe'house, like a madman. ,-By. this time  several fpeople had.come in, arid the' thin"-  puzzled them not a little.' Heath assert-d  ttiat 'he   had ��������� never, to   his   knowledgi ,  | seen-JBurrill before; and yet   there   stooci  t the fact of. Biu-rill's   fright, at   sight   of  I him.  Some believed it:a case of mistaken  identity; others, that   Heath was   trying  > t<j mislead them, and that   he did   know  (Burrill.    .The.affair became noised about  as such things   ^Vill   be, and some   were  curious to see1 another   meeting -��������� between  Heath and -Burrill.'    And here comes the  queer, part.of the business.     In his sober  moments, Burrill avoids   Heath, and can  j not be brought   to   ���������mention   his   name.  | But when he gets a little   too   much   on  . board���������beg    .pardon,    Conny���������I     mean,  somewhat   intoxicated,, he   becomes very  loquacious; then he throws   out   strange  hints, and gives mysterious winks; states  that, he could tell a tale about Heath that  . would open everybody's eyes.  He talks of  ��������� ' borrowed "plumiige,.' and insinuates   that  S Heath would like   to buy him    off.      He  ' says that he took to his heels   because he  '. knew that Heath did not mean fair play,  j etc.  ' Finally, two dr three evenings ago,  when-'Burrill was   remarkably tipsy, and  therefore, unusually ripe   for   a   combat  .with any one, Heath and I, crossing   the  ! street opposite Spring's Bank, encounter-  jedhim coming toward us, surrounded by  !,a party of roughs. As we approached  them, Burrill, making some uncouth gestures, came forward in advance of the  rest, and ��������� as he came opposite Heath,  leaned toward him and whispered a few  words in his ear. I don't know what he  said, but the effect on Heath was magical. For a moment he seemed staggered,  as if by a blow, and then he took the fellow by the throat, and shook him until  his teeth rattled; then loosed his hold  ���������so suddenly that his man dropped to the  ground. Heath by this time was a little  - cooler; he stooped over the prostrate man,  took   him   by the collar, and fairly lifted  him to his feet, then he   said:  "Understand this, fellow, I allow no  man to interfere with my business. This  is only a sample of what will happen to  you if you ever try this dodge again;  keep'my name off your tongue in public  and private, if you want whole bones in  your body;' then he marched past the  whole astonished crowd, minding them  no more than if they were gnats. I followed, of course, and said as I came up  with Heath:���������  '' ' Quite an adventure, upon my word;  you seem to possess a strange attraction  for Burrill?' .   .  '"' "'Burrill,' he exclaimed; 'who the  mischief is the fellow, Ray?'  " 'He is Mr. Lamotte's son-in-law,' I  answered.  - " 'Ah,' he mused; 'so Jasper Lamotte  has married his daughter to a blackmailer;' and after that, he said never o,  word more on the subject. I had it in  my mind to tell him of tho hints aud  insinuations Burrill in his unguarded  moments was putting into circulation,  but his'reciconce closed my lips."  He paused, and looked to   his   auditor  for some comment, but   she sat with her  eyes fixed upon the carpet, and a troubled  look on her face.  ���������"Don't think, Conny, that   I   am   one  of   those    who     construe     this   against  Heath, "said the loyal fellow. "He is the  best   fellow  in   the   world.    The   whole  thing, for me, lies in a   nutshell.    Heath  is not a man' to disturb himself about his  neighbor's concerns, and he   don'.t expect  his neighbors * to .��������� interest   themselves in  his.    This,  Burrill  has picked up, some-'  how,   a   little   information;    something  concerning, Heath, or   his   past life, that  is not known to W���������, and he is trying to  make capital of it.    The   secret .in itself  may be a mere nothing, but Heath is the  first man to   resent   impertinences,   and  the last man to make explanations.   And  he's right, too, especially under the present circumstances. I like him all the better for his  pluck and   his   reticence; let  him keep his secrets; so long   as he gives  me his friendship,'! am quite   content."  Constance  felt a thrill   of .satisfaction  and a return of courage, as   she listened.  Here was a   friend,   loyal,    enthusiastic,  not to be alienated   by   slander or suspicion. She had known Ray from his childhood, and they had always been the best  of friends, but   she   had   neyer   admired  and honored him, never valued his friendship so much, as she did at this moment.  His enthusiasmt was   contagious;    she  forgot all her fears of 'a personal  nature  and became in an instant the true woman  and unselfish friend.  "Ah, Ray," she exclaimed, lifting two  admiring gray eyes, to   meet   his,   "you  are a friend indeed ! a friend   to be proud  of; but telLme,   did   you   hear  nothing  more of   Burrill   after   that   second encounter?" '  '' He made some   pretty   loud threats,''  replied   Ray,    "and   a     fellow     named  Brooks, a sort of crony of Burrill's, took  it upon himself to   call   upon   Heath the  next day, and advise him to keep a pretty  close lookout for Burrill, as he was quite  likely, in one of   his  drunken   rages,   to  make   an    assault   upon    him.      Heath  thanked the fellow, and asured him   that  he was quite capable   of   taking   care  of  '.himself, and Burrill, too, if need be; and  Brooks backed   out,   declaring   that   he  'meant no 'arm by intrudin''.' "  "Ray,"   said'    Constance,      earnestly,  "John Burrill is not tho  only   man Doctor Heath has to fear.    I may have acted  hastily in sending for   you,   but I was so  troubled by certain facts   that   have just  come to my knowledge, that   I could not  rest without doing   something.    It's   almost an abuse   of   confidence   to   ask so  much of you and tell you so little, but in  a few days I hope to be  mistresss   of my  own tongue, and the a. you   shall have all  tho particulars.    For   the   present, Ray,  promise   to     follow .'���������.'; my     instructions  blindly."  "I have promised that, Conny.",  "And, Ray, you   will /keep   this all a  secret; you   will   do.   your   part without  hinting   to   Doctor   Heath     your     true  motive, unless   circumstances compel   an  explanation?":        .:.,......

A new bicycle seat has been invented  in order to permit two persons riding on  one wheel. This seat is fastened over the  front wheel in suoh a manner that the  rider sitting on it faces to the left, so as  to leave an unobstructed view for the  rider in the saddle. Besides the seat,  which is ample and of velvet, there are  a step and a wire skirt guard on a steel  frame.,;-Most ofvthe weight of the rider  on this ;'��������� seat rests on -.tifce^.front wheel,  though part of it is carried' back by a  double steel arm, which runs to the  middle post in the bioycle frame.  A new bicycle alarm, which can be  attached to any wheel with clips at  the fork and the-handle bar, was recently placed   on sale;'5:, '*���������',V. '  It consists of a rod with a roller at  the lower endand a clapper at the upper  end. In operation the rod is pushed  down, bringing. the roller in contact  with the tire of the front wheel. This  causes the clapper to strike against the  stationary piece of wood, producing, it is  claimed, any degree of noise. It can  equal the terrific racket of the Mexican  locust, keeping up a continual alarm as  long as desired. The point is made that  this is a distinctively bicycle alarm, as  the sound is not heard on street cars or'  on vehicles.���������Boston Advertiser.  It Is Possible to Maintain Fall Milk Flow  .:���������'        '      All Winter.  Keeping cows is a matter solely of income���������to get a return for the food con-  sumed over and above cost.   That is the  commercial side,of the matter, and the  herd  that  only pays for  its keep soon  has its owner where he will need an in-  dorser.   The profitable cow^can only be  the one  that" gives "suclra quantity of  milk  that its commercial worth is  in  excess of the cost of feed and care. Actually in this ,day  and. generation, with  "the sharp competition not only of other  states, but countries as well, care of the  cow contributes in no small ^degree; to  securing this profit.   To feed;up to the  limit of the cow's capacity; to digesib and  pay back in milk needs care and-watchful attention, with no small  skill  and  discernment  too.   Unlike all other animals, the cow, to  produce milk well,  must have not only enough  to  support  the system without loss of flesh, but the  milk must also be taken into account in  the feeding, for milk, is in" one sense  only food recomppsed into another form.  In the ration fed, the body of the cow  takos its share first, and the rest has its  effect on the yield. Tho better the'mechanism of the cow to accomplish this re-  ,, suit, the better for the dairyman.1 Thus'  the  points of capacity to  store food,"  power ..to digest, and "assimilate and vitality' to carry on the work are now the  most important items to  be considered  in buying a cow, and men have become  in many instances experts in judging by  external evidences of the possession by  the cow of these' now considered essen-  'tials.   ��������� $\   *  - -v. ^ , w .jC .a ,  ;.    As a  cow is kept for,, the dairy'that  j. profit may-be-secured, it depends' upon  Mbhe- man;to a,large extent^whether this  cow shall have'the opportunity of Having suitablerfood to stimulate milk flow  and in every way possible extension  of  time   given to the milk flow.   There is  , no  reason why the average cow should  go  dry at  Thanksgiving and "board"  through the; winter with her owner at  his expense. If the fall months are given  to'the'abundant arid uniform feeding of  green soiling material, the cows kept in  warm stables aftor the frosty nights and  are , not  allowed to  become drenched '  with chilling rains, and a fair quantity  of protein foods (like bran or buckwheat.. "  shorts) is given them to supply the missing element in the .frosted and dry herbage, there  is no reason why a cow that  is tp drop hor calf in. March or April  should not milk well to the 1st of February,1 as well as the cow that calves, in  the fall months, if well cared for, should '  milk  until  July 15.    The'stimulating,  grasses' of May, June and July actually-  force milk supply, and the same would <  be quite .as true if the months of Sep-  November and a  part at least of December could be made ,  to supply good, nutritious succulence as  abundantly as the early parts of summer. In-the autumn months the winter  dairy herd is quite as dependent on an  abundance of succulence as are the summer cows, for to let the former shrink  for a lack of succulent food is to show  a great loss in milk that can never be  restored by any system of feeding.  All this extra feed is secured from the  email field  of 'millet, sweet corn and  others of our now recognized good soiling crops,,and here and there is a man  who is demonstrating that no fall soil-'  ingvcrop'comeS'quite as near filling, the  requirements of milk production or* is as   ���������  cheap and sure as to have a small pit of>  ensilage left over on purpose from  the  previous year's crop.    ���������'  i "With ensilage, there is the same thing  to' be met witn ^Srwith the flush, rank  food  of the pastures.   Ensilage represents more fully than any other food  the starch; side of tlie ration,, and in the  ���������summer or fall feeding of it some sort  ���������bf protein should; therefore be fed with  it.'",,'''-";'''":':'1"^,.;.,;' '.���������",;^..,:.  - ..; ���������..'���������'  So a smali ration daily of bran or ,  like protein foods is of great assistance.  Even on the best of grass a pound or  two of, oat dust or bran, possibly a lit-  ;,tle bilmeal and a lightener with it, pays  .when fed to each cow.;���������Exchange.  Dairy and Creamery.  Every board  of creamery managers  should make it its business to become  acquainted with the rules for patrons  in use at the best butter and cheese factories.   The managers should then have  printed a set of rules adapted to their  own particular creamery.   These should  include exact  directions   for   keeping  cows, stables and milk utensils shining  clean, for feeding the cows nothing that  will taint the milk and for giving them  only pure water to drink.    Besides .that  an inspector should be appointed by authority of  the board whose  business it  should  be   tp make   constant   rounds  among the patrons' stables, farmhouses  and milkhouses  to see that these rules  are obeyed.   The members of the board  might  take  turns at  this visiting and  inspection, which is a most  important  part of good butter and cheese making.  The visit of inspection can be made in  a perfectly good tempered and friendly .  way, so that the patron,will understand he is learning from it something  to his own advantage. In truth, a creamery man ought to be the educator of his  patrons, and he ought to have time to  attend to this important part of hia duties.  1  In the French-German war 4,500 Hebrews were in the German army, of whom  827 earned the Iron Cross for bravery in  tha flald.

As  ' she'felt tho touch of the soissors on her  neck she started' and turned hastily,  evidently supposing that she was >,about  to be muruered in the cell: she then saw  the executioner folding up her' hair;  which he put'in his pocket. Before she  left tho cell she said anxiously to the  officer now on .guard: "Do you think  they will let me reach the place of execution without, tearing me to pieces?"'  a' '   He   assured   her that she had nothing  ,. .to. fear   from ��������� the mob, but she seemed'  .���������'.anxious as she followed tlia, officials who  led her to her doom,' scarcely hoping  even   for   the    dreadful   security   of   a  * guarded scaffold! 'When she saw the cart  awaiting' her she again started,, and  seemed to receive a fresh shook; she had  supposed that, like the King, she would  have the protection of   a   closed   coach.  ' The   car   was   of   a   kind seen only in  , remote country parts at the present day,'  and made of four separate sides ruddy  tied . together, the back part being let  down for ingress,' with   a   stepladder at-  : -tached.   A   plank   put   across   the cart  served   as .a. seat.   The Queen ascended  ; 'the   steps   firmly, , and   prepared   to "sit  facing the horse; but 'she   was Immediately   told, that   she must sit backward,  t looking toward the spectators. She  turned and took her seat with perfect  calmness and   a   grave,   resolute,   look,  * gazing straight before ��������� her, pale, with  red, even blood' hot. eyes, but carrying  her head high, as was her wont. The  executioner and his assistant stood lie-  hind her, leuning against the sides of the  cart. The"- priest took his place next to  her, but she turned away and seemed  determined not to speak to him, thr.sjgh  he held up a crucifix before her f-orn  time to time. She seemed to suffer ptiia  from   the   ropes   around her 'hands, onf  taken in two portions with a short interval between, certain .definite effects  follow���������effects which differ from those  which wonld have resulted from the  same quantity taken by sipping.

During the'act of sipping the action  of the nerve which slows the beats of  the heart is abolished, and as a consequence that organ contracts much more  rapidly, the pulse bpats more quickly,  and the circulation in various parts of  the body is increased In addition to this  we also find that the pressure under  which tha bile is seoreted is raised by  che sipping of fluid.

The ends   were   held by the executionor,  pulling   the   arms  backward.

As the Queen passed before the  Tuilleries   she   turned   with an earnest,  .> lingering look.     , ������  ( r   ,  The: .scaffold   was   erected   facing the  garden of the   Tuilleries, before a statue  of Liberty, on the spot where the Obelisk  now   stands  and not where   the King's  scaffold   had   stood,    which   was on the  opposite     side,     facing      the   Champs-  Elysees.    The   priest   attempted to assist  her in   alighting,   but   notwithstanding  the   increased   difficulty   consequent   on  ������������������her tied hands, she turned from him and  stepped down firmly,with apparent ease,  as quickly as   she   could, seeming desir^  ous to hasten the   end as far as possible.  The   executioner offered   to assist her in  ascending   the scaffold, but she went up  alone and quickly, immediately going to  the   plank   on   which   she   was   to    be  bound.    In doing so she trod on tho foot  of the   executioner, who   made a motion  as of pain.  With the kind courtesy which  characterized her even   in this last hour,  she quickly exclaimed:    "Pardon,   monsieur I"    in a tone of regret and apology.  The   executioner and   his assistant then  fastened   her   to   the plank, and tore off  her muslin   kerch'ef,   lest it should   impede the action   of   the knife.  The   last  motion   of   Marie Antoinette was an involuntary attempt to  bring  forward her  tied hands as a  screen for her uncovered  shoulders.    * * * When   the   executioner  held up the head to the populace, ; to the  deep awe   of   the spectators, the   face of  Marie Antoinette   expressed  perfeot consciousness   and   the eyes   looked on   the  -crowd!    The   expression  was that of intense   astonishment, as of some wonderful vision revealed.  In looking up1 a word in the dictionary several days ago my eyes fell on the  definition of "emulation"���������"the act of  attempting ,to .equal or excel in qualities  or actions; rivalry, desires of superiority, attended with effort to attain it."

It was a,physician who answered:���������  , "She has no disease. She is wearing  herself to death by emulation of other  people. The strain will kill her if she  keeps it up. 0 Nobody in this world can  stay first." ,  His words,and the dictionary definition  set me to thinking. Are not many women killing themselves by this same process? And how drearily unprofitable it all  is, when one considers the truth of' the  physician's statement that "nobody in  this world can stay fir^t!" .  Nobody! For, strive as we may, there  is always some' one with a . little wore  money, a handsomer house, move influence, or perhaps more brains. There is  merit in the desire to make the beet of  ourselvest and , of the , talent given us.  ' There is no credit due her who, because  of "a , desire- for superiority" over another, wears herself out in attempting to  do that which she cannot perform. Is  this not one reason for the nervous, an-,  xious look on the' face of our American  women? They strive to dress as well as  neighbors with double their income; they  give'entertainments that empty the never  too full purse, and they buy furniture  for which they can only pay by rigid  self-denial. r  Were we only content as women to do  just that which we can easily afford, how  much more peaceful our lives would be,  how much better our children, , how  much more care free and youthful our  men���������these American husbands the best  in the world, who cannot bear to have  their wives'' long for things that .by an  additional strain they might give them.  And would not our ' lives be longer in  the land?���������Harper's Bazaar.  ;        3 c  ,-Still Anxious for Information.

Outbreak of Hoc Cholera.   ,  Windsor, Dec. 6.���������Despite the rigid  precautions taken by Veterinary Inspector McEachran, hog cholera has again  broken out in North Essex. It Is about  eight months since there has been a case  of swine plague in the north of Essex,  while it has been prevalent in South  Essex continuously. When it was reported to him that cholera had broken out  on the .farm of Mr. E. Howard, on the  Tecumseh road, two and a half miles  from Windsor, he started promptly to  the farm. Half an hour later the inspector had slaughtered eighteen pigs, all  the farmer owned. The inspector says  cholera does not exist in any other part  of North Essex. He believes it will not  spread.  How to Drink Water.  The effects-produce by the drinking of  water vary with the manner in whioh  it is drunk, says the Sanitarium. If, for  Instance, a pint of cold water be swallowed as a   large   draught,    or   if it be  A Spiritual Custom House.'  Though ovil thoughts may come to us  by hundreds aud thousands, and beset  us over and over again, if we always  banish them, and pray against them, and  refuse consent to them, so far from committing sin, we gain a victory every  time, and store up merit in God's sight.  Sin begins only when they are consciously admitted and willingly entertained.  You know what the custom house is. All  goods coming into this country are examined there, and if anything unlawful  is discovered it is promptly seized and  condemned. Would it not be a good plan  for us to establish spiritual custom houses  at the doors of our hearts and subject all  our thoughts to rigid inspection? If they  are good, let them in galdly; if thoy are  bad, seize, condemn, destroy them at  once Dont allow one to enter. , There is  no such thing as "duty" on bad thoughts;  they are absolutely contraband; they  must not be allowed to pass at any price.  The Ca������e of the Man Who Caught the Boat  ' He Wag Running For.  ''A little incident of my vacation this  summer taught me the absurdity of  volnnteefing congratulations to a man  when apparently he is a target for them  unless you know all of the circumstances  in the caae," said 'Joe Watson. "Now,  you might naturally.suppose that a man  would-be pleased to'receive congratulations, 'wouldn't you? ,!That isn't always  true.  "."We struck the St Lawrence river,, at  a porji. from whioh several'boats were going to leave)on the.morning-"- of our arrival.-. The; Blue Bird���������=that.^ isn't her  name", of course���������was our boat and! sfie  was bound down the river. The Black  Bird sailed from the same pier twenty  minutes later, and she was bound up the  river. We made close connections with  the Blue���������Bird, and the gangplank was  pulled aboard just after we arrived. As  the deckhands were throwing, off the  rapes I saw a speck away up the village  street that was rapidly growing larger.  It was a' belated .passenger, and he had  nearly an even chance to,-;beat the deckhands, who was lazily loosening the  steamer. As he came nearer I saw that  he was small, and that he wore glasses  and carried a Gladstone bag, which  sadly handicapped his speed. The tails  of his cutaway coat spread out behind  and his eyes seemed to be popping  through his glasses. The crowd : on  board was intensely interested. Men  leaned over the rail and shouted:���������  '.' 'Come along, old chap! Hit her up.  Spread your stride and you can make it!  Lookout you don't interfere! That's  more like it!' and by this time the little  man struck a pace that bade fair to land  him a winner.  "Unfortunately, the Blue Bird had  been untied and she was drifting slowly  from "the pier. The little man was determined not to get left, however, and as  he reaohed the -pier he gave the Gladstone bag a swing and let her go. The  bag soared gracefully over the rail and  landed on the deck. Its owner had expended his momentum in that effort,  and when he saw that it was successful  he, stepped back a few paces, ran to the  edge of the pier, and sprang toward the  boat. The smile that had gathered on his  face wh'en he saw the bag safely landed  faded when he found himself in the air  midway between the pier and the boat.  " 'Climb up I' shouted the crowd on  the rail, and then seeing that he had  misjudged his diatanee it emitted a loud  'Ah-h-hl' as the little man shot down  into the water with a loud splash. A  deokhand, who had   foreseen this fiasco,  leaned over the   rail   with   a   long boat  hook, fastened it   into   the   back   of the  little man's cutaway   ooat as he came to  the surface, and   with   the assistance of  the crowd pulled him aboard.  The shock  of the   cold   water   and the exhaustion,  after his long run had used him up completely.    He   was   carried down into th������  engine room to dry his clothes. The captain   gave   the   signal to go ahead   full  speed and   the   passengers > got. together  arid; talked It over.    We   voted that  the  |little man was plucky', and 'tnat He'was-  fortunate'-inj:, escaping,, .with ^his <-life.    I  was particularly interested   in  him, and  ������hatf,-an<.houE   later   I   went down to the  engine room:to offer him my con gratula-  ' tions. , -I saw him sitting beside   the engine with/his   chin   sunk   in his hands,  the picture uf dejection.    I thought that  it was   because of   his   wetting.    As   I  stepped toward   him   the   engineer came  forward and stopped.  " 'Sh-h-h,' he said, 'don't disturb  him.'   ,   ,  " 'I simply "wanted to congratulate  him.' -���������  . '     " -     .    .  " 'Don't   do   it,'    said   the   engineer,  'he's in trouble enough.'  ��������� " 'He will dry his clothes in an hour,'  fvsaid, 'and hevgot the Blue Bird.'  " 'Sh-h-h! don't speak: so loud,' said  the engineer. 'It was the Black Bird that  he wanted, and she was tied up to the  dock all the time.'  "I sneaked upstairs, and I'll  bother to. offer, congratulations  stranger again."���������New York Sun,  AN  ARABIAN  WEDDING.  The  Picturesque   Ceremony  Described, by  an American Girl.  The following extract from the letter  of an American girl in Cairo describes  an Arabian wedding, which the writer  was permitted to witness as one of a  small party of favored guests:���������  At 8 o'clock in the morning   our Ara-  gonian, who, by the way, is   a   fascinat-,  .ing and picturesque fellow, well supplied  with   letter's   of   recommendation   .from  many famous people, met us  at the door  of our hotel with   three   enormous   bouquets.   Arriving at a very narrow street,  we proceeded   a   short   distance   on foot  .under red rags, striped awnings and Ian-'  terns   which   were   stretched,, over   our  heads  the   length''of   the    street.    The  ground was   sprinkled   with   sand, and  aiong the sides of the   houses were seats'  provided   for   the   men, as    none of the  sterner sex were allowed   in'the room or  house   of   the    bride.     We, , the women,  mounted   three   nights   of   stairs,     and  found. ourselves   in   a large room5 filled .  with Arabian women of various ��������� classes,  also some Grecian and   Turkish  women.  There'',, were   arrayed-   in * many-colored  garments, pink silk scarfs, gold embroidered jaokets, blue plush and wool  stuffs,  combinations I cannot begin to describe.  The women gathered around us"   and led  us to the divan arranged for   the   bride,  seating the oldest   in   the   party   in,the  middle, while the rest   of' us were given >  seats on either   side.    We remonstrated,  but they assured us that the   bride could  sit upon a chair. We were great   curiosities to them, . apparently,    and ,we   certainly enjoyed the novelty of our position.  In their   simple   way   they   showed 'us  great hospitality.    The   approach  of the  bride was heralded by a most' conglomerate lot of howling women   and children,  playing'tom-toms, tambourines and   native instruments anything but   musical. ,  We ai'o-j8 lo igfTpti our seats   of honor'in  iavcr of   the   bi'ide* and her attendants,,  but she insisted that  we two remain on  either side of her, while she occupied the  middle "seat just. vacated by one-of   the'--  party, and   so   we- sat   through all the  howling and banging, the   pushing   and  jostling of these half-civilized   creatures.!-.  After,every one ;had   seen   thB bride'an,i  enormous   woman ' laden    with   jewelry  and golden   chains; began   to   howl and  hammer   on'* a - tambourine,    then    the'  guests threw   coin   into   the bride's cap  while   the   women   howled .and    made  other   hideous   noises.'    After   this   the  guests began', to   mingle   with   one another, and we found   some who "spoke a  little English, some   French   and   some  Italian.  Finally a very intelligenf Greek  woman took us in charge; she "was quite  a linguist, and,we   were   enabled   to appreciate what we had seen after   her explanations.  Then came the refreshments,  'and we had   to eat little   cakes and big  icakes, all shapes   and   flavors,    and last'  one awful affair of some kind soaked   in  wine.    This was   the end of the   bride's,  part of the entertainment. We went down* '  stairs to join the.'men of our party, and'  there met,a   very, jolly "old priest,'who -  had been to   London   and   Paris,   spoke   -  good French, and who interested us very -  much.    He , it   was who was to perform  the ceremony     The man we had not yet- ���������  seen, but we were soon presented to him,  5       "I  never  to    a  To be Pleasant.  "One great source of pleasing others  lies in our wish to please them," said a  father to his daughter, discoursing on  the "small, sweet courtesies of life."  "We want to tell you a seoret. The way  to make yourself pleasant to others is to  show them attention. The whole world  is like the miller of Mansfield, 'who oared  for nobody���������no, not he���������because nobody  oared for him,' and the whole world  would do so if you give them the cause.  Let the people see what you care for  them."  Amusing His Patients.  An uptown physician, who has a very  large office practice, has adopted a simple  but effective plan for the entertainment  of his patients while they are waiting.  He has provided half a dozen ingenious  puzzles, strewn carelessly around on the  tables and on the mantel in the  waiting room. Frequently there will be a  soore of persons ln this room, and, for  some of them, especially the nervous  ones, the waits would be very fatiguing  if it were not for the puzzles.���������New York  Time  with his attendants, who were   parading  up' and down this inclosed street, preceded by an Egyptian   band.    We presented'  him   with our two'remaining   bouquets,  having   left   one   with   his . 16-year-old  bride.    Again we all went' upstairs, and  saw the groom lift the veil of the ��������� bride,  supposed to be his first sight   of her fair  countenance.    This   was   the  ninth and  last day   of   this   wedding performance,  arid the most important one,for they were  at last duly tied by_ the   old( priest,   and  went home by morning light'.   It   was a  weird performance.    Through it all they  showed us,    the only Europeans present,  great respect, and in good   English   said  they hoped we had had a   pleasant   time  and were glad that we came.  On the following day (Friday) we were  taken to. see the famous Whirling Dervishes. Friday, one must bear in mind,  is the Mohammedan Sunday, and an uneventful day. The court surrounding the  arena in,which this weird and uncanny  performance takes place holds about 500  persons; arid it was filled with all sort's  and oonditions of. people, American and  English the predominating element. Soon  after we entered the court the whirlers  made their appearance, dressed in short  white skirts and on their heads the funniest looking chiinney pot hats. After  marching around and uround for fifteen  or twenty minutes to tho hideous noise  of a band composed of tom-toms, tambourines and some wind instrument,'  they began to whirl, and they whirled  until it seemed to us to whom the sight  was new that we must cry out to them  to cease. The sight was positively maddening. After fifteen minutes of constant  whirling they dropped to tho ground  from sheer exhaustion, apparently. It appears, however, that this part of the programme is for effect entirely.  From this place we drove to hear the  "Howlers," quite as famous as the  "Whirlers," who wore a horrid lot of  healthy, lusty men, simply howling and  making as much noise as possible in a  most unpleasant manner which gave one  the "creeps." One old fellow kept it up  until he bad hysterics and frothed at the  mouth.  So much for the uncanny sights that  we saw this beautiful day in January  with the sky as blue as turquoise and  the air as balmy as June. Later in the  day our dragoman took us tp the Isle of  Rhoda, near where Moses was found by  Pharoah's daughter; then to Old Cairo,  which is indeed qunint and deeply interesting, to a Coptic church, which, it is  said, is built upon the spot where stood a  shelter for the Virgin and Child while  they were in Egypt.���������G.
