It was in KcJinburgh. am\ i..-.  Majesty had com'e north to review  c the voiuntec/ forces of Scotland. AH  Scotland had poured forth its , cili-  . zen soldiers, and in tlie ,fore part of  the day th'e Queen's -��������� park - vvas  checkered like a highland' tartan  with its multi-colored bodies of  troops. '  1 liefore the parade commenced, such  a rain settled down as Edinburgh  has not known from that day to  this. 3u an open carriage, protected  only with umbiella and mackintosh,,  -Her .Majesty sat "while 20,000 men  slipped- past, her in the mud. Alarching was impossible. At parts > at1 the  route the volunteers -were' niid-  thigh in waler and the' long lists  of, death from pneumonia ' ' and.  ��������� phthisis that followed exceeded those'  in many hard-fight. \  But Queen Victoria ��������� faced it  ' 'through���������faced- it with the memory  of the fatal chill her husband caught'  ' in the same city > nineteen yearsi before. But there has been1-no other  review/-'and, if my memory serves  me rightly, she has never' * slept "a  night  in the Scottish  capital,since.  The  following1 dav' J  was     present  at the .great military review in Wimbledon park,  when the young Princes  Albert,   Victor   and   George   returned  <   from ithciE  tour 'around   the     world.  -The occasion     was   'memorable      be-'  cause on. that clay ���������were more of the  'immediate   descendants   of   the Queen"  gathered   together   than   ever     again  met on one. field.,  ATy- memory' of   the   Queen   at  that  "time is of a little lady,  very plainly  ' dressed in  black,   who   sat  extremely  upright iii her carriage   ,and     bowed  with   a  slow,   "sweeping" inclination,  vastly  expressive, of  her, dignity. De-  ���������^hind  her  carriage,    'on  the     rumble,  stood   .John f Brown , and   ihe'     other  "Scotch   gillie," kilted   in     the     roj al  Stewart   tartan���������stern   men,     whose  devotion  to   the ' Queen  was   as  pure  and  spontaneous   as rthe  air of  their  native glens. ,*���������"������*  ,  Years passed before I again      saw  T-Ter Majesty"/ and  then  it avo's on -'a  long   country   road   near     Balmoral.  It was autumn,  and as T stood     on  ^thc fallen leaves  by .the wayside she  smiled     over     to   me  and  bowed���������a  ' ,gentle   little   lady ; sitting   very   low  "in   her   low-swung ^ carriage, .    with  the Princess Beatrice bcsidevhcr, and  a  single     attendant     on     horseback.,  She  had  aged  greatly  in   the     intcr-  - vening  fifteen  years,   and   there \ was  a pathetic ,\yistfulncss   in  her  face   I  did not remember from the long ago.  There   in   her   highland- home '    she  was woman    rather    than  Queen���������a  good   and   kindly   woman,   who   sent  jellies   from   the   castle   to   the     frail  old   ��������� bodies c in     the cottages.      and  who  still drove out occasionally     to  tea  in a  shepherd's  hut  or  a gamekeeper's lodge.  Down in the A'illago of 0 ratine  was the little church she had built,  and every Sunday the* Balmoral  party sat listening to the chaplain3  royal of Scotland���������Trincipal Story.  Dr. .Cameron 'Lees, Dr. MacGregor,  Dr. Norman McLeod. Many a curious  sermon has royalty heard from those  stout old upholders of the Scottish  'faith, and many an earnest discussion'has Her Majesty waged over  the  luncheon  table "afterward. An  Episcopalian in England, a. member  . of the church of Scotland in her  northern kingdom, the Queen had  her chaplains and respectful friends  on  both sides  of  the Tweed.  Once more 1 saw the Queen apart  from her public appearance in London less than two years ago. It was  at Windsor, aud Her Majesty was to  review (he Honorable Artillery Company there. I had accompanied a  famous colonial Minister to the park,  and the Queen had intimated through  Sir .lames Kcid, the physician, that  she would liko it if he would stand  where she might greet him on entering her carriage. I was permitted  to accompany the two gentlemen to  a. spot on the terrace, near where the  carriage was-standing..  As we walked over, Sir James told  how Her-Majesty was very sensitive  as to any but her immediate suite  being present when she walked these  latter days. .'She had grown so heavy  of late years walking had become a  pain to her, and she dreaded any  publicity  of  her suffering.'  Arriving at our point of vantage  we saw that a long gangway had  been raised to the carriage to obviate the necessity of Her Majesty's  stepping up or down. Quickly the  door opened and the Queen appeared, leaning on the arm of her Indian  servant and on a thick'.'ebony walking stick. Very slowly she crossed  the .distance ���������.'to the carriage, and  once seated turned to us and bowed  her gracious greeting.  We stood for some minutes gazing  after the carriage as it rolled away  to tho reviewing ground, and then  tlie colonial premier at my elbow-  shook himself and said:  "i.'eid, I would not change my position-as a subject of that woman to  be president of the proudest republic  on   c.'irth."  Lust ?*iav I. was enabled to cable  from   tlie Transvaal  certain news     of  moment to Her Majesty. Months later, when I returned'to England, I  found a graceful .little telegram of  thanks, from the Queen. To-day it  hangs framed in my study in London, aud, I possess no prouder tj oas-  ure. '     ������ ��������� i^  It is difficult for an Englishman to  write or speak -intelligibly ^ of his  feeling- for the Queen, who passed so  gently away., Twice in my life I  .have been in the position where it  was treason to sing i'Cod Save the  Queen," and the' most impressive incident of my career avus the singing  'of the grand old anthem when Lord  Roberts unfurled the Union JnV.l- in  i-votoria on .lune'5 lost. There av-',,  not a dry eye among" tlie released  prisoners by my side, and many a  bronzed and' battered veteran brushed away a tear as the rude prayer  rose from the kirk square'. . ,(  ������������������ Then, as now, we -were thinking  not of Queen Victoria's majesty and  might, but of the frail little woman  soothing the fretted beds at,Motley,  carrying fruit and jellies to the  poor at ' Osborne'and Balmoral,- of  the ,infinitely tender mother of  tions.     '  The  picture  that  clings   most  sistently  to'me is  of the young  Queen on the balcony at--Buekuigha.ii  Palace/    Beneath,  a'regiment is .'eav-  uig for, Syria,   and  as  it  passes'   he-  low  I lie  porch  the girl  bends,   draws  off  her little  satin  shoe and  casts  it  after   the^ soldiers   for-luck.       tjixty  j ears  later   sho   lie's   dead,   the   most  loved  queenfof     whom   history     lias  any record.���������Douglas  Story. ,  III HE IBS BOW I  How the   Harvest -Mice  Their Home.

Little Mrs. , Harvest-Mouse loved ��������� a  hedge bottom. She always said it was  more private thim the open field, aud  also she thought about the farmer and  how he comes to cut the corn, but  leaves the long, stiff grass in the hedge  ,bottom safe and standing when the  corn is all carried away to thu barn.  So when Mr. ilarvust-Mouse began to  talk to t.Mrs. Uarvest-Mousi? .about  w hero'to build tho^ir-home she begged  hi������n to. choose the long, stiff grass in  the hedge bottom vatlier than the corn  hi the field. That is how it happened  that theirrtiny( nest was built between  tf lie, grass stems, and they built it. very  cunningly' of narrow blades and bits of  feather or any soft and" bending'stuff  that they could find, and they fixed  them all in such a' clever way that at  last a wee round nest no bigger than a  cricket-ball was fixed high up among  the stiff green stalks as'if it grew,, there  by itself. . It was soft and light and  very thin.'so the suminer air blew gently through aud kept it nicely aired.  Tlie taller grasses standing round  about UHd it from' the tiawks. and a little'bindweed then grew up and^helped  them. - It twined around the stems and  .twisted its tendrils from one to another.' then hung its'tiny bells'about aud  made a merry garden near, the nest.'   ,  Mr. 'Harvest-Mouse- was very pleased  when0 all was'done and felt happier  still when eight little^ baby mice were  snug and safe inside/ They fitted into  the   soft,   round   ball   quite   perfectly,  which shows how wee they were.   ,  ,        *- -  And now through the hot summer  .days, while Mrs. 'Harvest-Mouse was  busy with tho children, Mr. Harvest-  Mouse \vas running here and there collecting news for his,wife and flies and  other food for,himself and':for-his family. What a gay. clever, little mouse  he was, and as for'her, she was tho  oiuckest, 'daintiest little, lady in the  land, and she taught her.children to be  quick and dainty too. She also taught  them , to be good,'M:hough ' what ,slfe  would have - done had- Ihey been  naughty I' cannot tell, for there was  not a corner in the house to stand them1  in. -  ' ���������  She ran nimbly all about the outside  of the nest, and when the little ones be-*  gan to bite'each other's tails for fun  she patted gently through the open network of the walls and told them how  their long lails would be useful when  they came to climb the tall,"stiff grasses in the green and mazy world of tlie  hed^e bottom where they lived. And  the bindweed quite agreed in wtiat she  said, for it knew*.the value of a tail to  hold by.  ,0ne warm evening the little mother  sat on the top of her little round house,  while Mr. Harvest-Mouse was chatting  Avith a neighbor in the corn close by,  and then it was she told the children a  great deal about tho world. She told  them how as she sat there she could  see the green grass blades henil'ng over  her aud a sweet bindweed bell swing  gently under the weight of a bumble  bee. She said that far away, quite high  cabove the1 bindweed bells, quite  above the grass blades in tbe  bottom, even higher than the corn,  there was blue,'blue sky. She could  see patches of it uoav as she looked up  through their tangled screen.  The tiny mice inside the nest got restless at the very thought of that, and  they asked her to get a bitand poke it  through for them to seo.  "You siily, silly ones." she said, "there  are great things that you cannot understand in the big world, and one of them  is the blue, blue sky.' , It is only to look  winter,' too, no doubt. Why not? He  was getting strong and bold enough for  anything.  - His mother gave-a pat where his lit-'  tie ear showed, pink between the grasses and silenced all his silly talk at once  aud .then went on to tell how the( winter was as far beyond their thinking lis  the blue, blue sky was high above their  heads; -   '  "The warm, soft wind that rings our  bindweed- bells," she said, "and makes  sweet music in the grass will 'turn, to  cold and bitter blasts that will blow  the leaves about, and then the bells  will wither one, by one and fall away,  and the grasses will, turn quite dull and  dry and rub against each other with a  shrill and fearsome sound as tlie wind  sweeps up along the.hedge bottom."  At" that the little mouse, whose ear  was tingling still; felt frightened, and  he quivered Avhile his mother, talked  'and wondered what Avould come of it.f  She knew just how he felt, and now  she gave him comfort and advice about  'the future,-and she told them all-what  thoy must'do. "VFor," said , she, "thec  winter is'too'great and strong for tiny  creatures like ourselves,' and so while  the big world and the hedge bottom are  bearing the cold weather we may sleep  quite peacefully, each in a tiny hole,  until the winter time is ,over and the  summer comes again. You must seek  your holes when the right time comes  and then' be s^ire to curl your tails well  in to keep them from tbe frost."    .  They all squeaked a little promise to  remember what she said and"not thiuk  ,they knew better, aud then they whispered softly to each other of the great  "world and the sky and the.winter time  and   how  quite  soon- they   should  be.  grown up mice.   And while th'ey"talked  "and  chattered   merrily,  catching   flies  from   time1 to   time' and   trying   who  could'be'most clever and saying how  much" they had grown since ;*csterday  Mr.' Harvest-Mouse   came   home   and  rubbed   noses .with "bis  wife  with   a  grave and 'anxious air, for he ,brought  bad news from thecoru'close'by.   The  hawk had come and'caught their kiud-  ly neighbor, Mr. Field-Mouse.   But.this  he  said _quite,gently,  sitting close to  Mrs.' Harvest-Mouse, lest the little ones  should hear.;' "Ati," she said and heaved a sigh, "how .glad Lam wo.chose tho  long,' stiff grass in the hedge  bottom  rather   than   the .corn   in   the   field!"  "Yes," sfeiid he; "we did well to ehoose  the hedge bottom."    And with that he  ran   about  the  iiest  and,'counted   his-  rcight children,anxiously' and  scolded  them a little and then went a-bunting  for, his supper till by^and by thet, quiet  night came clown and-settled on the little family and all was'peace and darkness for awhile.���������Black and White.  high  hedge  AmcHcnni'/liii;, Mcsipq.

A good friend, a railroad man,  came, into the office and after 1 had  checked up his accounts said, 'Come,  Charlie, let's go over to the Oyster-House  and have a drink.' .Well, sir, I was  reaching for my hat when I remembeied  the card. I took it out and handed it'to  "him. I thought he would never finish  loading it. l He looked at me, and ho  looked at the card." aud then ho sln\ y  put his arm down on the counter .-.ml  *said. 'Charlie, I'd sooner cut that ha 'd  off chau ask you to drink again.'1" Well,  sir, I showed that card several times  after that, and every blessed man I  showed it to took it seriously. Sometimes  they said, 'All right, old boy.' Sometimes they laid it down.without a wo:d.  And then���������it was last night���������1 forgo c  about it. and  here  I am."  "You are doing well." said the doctor.  ''Have courage, and try to make the interval a little longer next time."  It   was  three lmonths  before^the man  came  back.     The  next  time  it   was  si  mouths. * -   ,  "And now," said the doctor to the nav  rator,  "it  is  nearly   two  years since  his  last call, and  I have every reason to In:  lievo   that   he   will   not   f.nd  it   nect*s*-:i:-y  lo   como   to   me  again.     So.  you   see.  was quite p^ht.    It  was" t a pled?*- tha'  he needed."  Consumption has been well named  the great white plague.. One-sixth, of  all the deaths*"- occurring in- Canada  annually are due to tho ravages of  this terrible disease. _ Its' victim's aro  found among] all .classes;, rich and  poor alike ' succumb to its insidious)  advance. Only a few years ago ���������- tho  victim of .consumption (was regarded  as incurable,,, and horror stricken  friends watched the loved one day by  fade away, until death , * came as a  merciful release. Now, however, it is  known that taken at its earlier  stages' consumption is 'curable, and  that by a proper care of the blood���������  keeping it rich, red and'-pure���������those  who are predisposed to the disease'  escape its ravages. Consumption is  now classed< among the vpreventiblou  diseases, and those - .who are pale,  easily tired, emaciated, or show any  of the, numerous 'symptoms of general  debility' should at once fortify the  system by enriching, and purifying,  the blood���������thus strengthening not  only "the lungs, but all parts of the  body.        ^ ������  , Among "those who have escaped a  threatened death from consumption is  Mrs.1 Jtoberfc McCracken, ' of Marsh-  ville, Ont. Mrs.--McGrack.cn. gives .her  experience that it 'may be" of benefit  to somet other 'sufferer'. She says : ..  ., "A..few years, ago-I began to experience a general weakness. My  appetite was poor;; I ,was very pale;  was troubled with shortness of breath'  and a smothering, feeling in.'ray chest.  Besides these symptoms I' became  very nervous, at times ' dizzy , and  faint, and my hands and feet would  get as cold as ice. As r.he voublc  progressed I began to lose flesh rapidly, and in a short* time I was' only.  a shadow���������of..my former self. T had  good medical treatment," but did not  get relief, and as a harsh cough set  in. I began to fear that consumption  had .fastened itself upon me. This  was ^strengthened* by - , knowledge  that several of tmy . ancestors had  died of this terrible disease. En this  rather ".deplorable condition I was advised ,to try"Dr.'Williams' Pink'-EUls.-  T at once procured a rsupply and had  not taken them long when E noted a  criange for^thc better. By the time I  had- taken "six orseight' boxes I was  'able Vo move around the house again  and felt better and, stronger in every  way... I continued the "use of the pills  until I had taken a^ dozen boxes.when  all my old 'time strength and vigor  had returned, and I was as well as  ever. During the time I was using  the pills my weight- increased Lwenty-  six- pounds. Several years have since  passed, and "in that time not a symptom of my former trouble has made  itself apparent, so that I think F am  safe in saying thgt my cure ,s i>i-r-  manciit.

C.S. Plumb and U. E. Vna  Norman of the Indiana experiment station have published details of valuable  tests of roots as food for pigs,   In 1898  as high as 24.25 tons of mangel wurzuis  ���������per acre were produced at the station  at  a cost of about 83 cen.t3 per'ton  when tested.    Their feeding value was  tested with 12 pigs of ordinary breeds.  The pigs were weaned only two days  before the beginning: of the test, whoa  , they were about 3 months old.'   They  . 'were divided into lots, each lot containing three males and three females. The  test began Feb. 1 and closed April 19,  1300.    The pigs-were couuned in small  Jots 15 l>y' 30 feet in size, with a comfortable shelter house in each.    Lot 1  was fed on slop consisting of corn aud  ehorts,  one to -two.  and  cut  muuj?el ���������  *  wurzels ad libitum. ' Lot 2 was1 fed oa  cornmeal  and  shorts-only.

Weighings were inade at the end  of each week     At-the beginning ol V. ���������  test the average.weight of the pi,-.-- \:i  the  two" lots  was  4-}  pounds and   ti  pounds respectively.

If the mangels wer-> of  value iu the feeding, the figures show-  it  in ouly a small way.    The man-:-!  fed pigs were no more healthy at any  time than werethose not so fed. while  tbe cost of producing flesh with rheiu  was slightly more than with the others.  - The diITeranee, however, was so sl.ght  that a redistribution of the pigs or a  substitution of another iu lot  1  might'  have reversed the results.   The writers  feel that roots In some form are a desirable food for pigs In winter, as an.  addition to the grain ration in promoting  healthy   activity  of  the. digestive  orguHs and acting as ao appetiser.  Sugar beets, artichokes or carrots would  po doubt serve this purpose better than  mangels    They nre more expensive in  View of greater cost of production, but  this difference Is not lmportant-  Any  Month   In   the   Venr^According  to the ilemilta Soug-fat.  Many  inquiries , are made In  regard  to the proper time for p: lining trees or,  shrubs,  both ornamental and fruiting.  It  is  impossible,  says  Meehan  in;, his  Monthly, to answer, except in a general  way, as the individuals to be treated  must be ,each -one considered.   Where  1 considerable pruning ������<s to be done the  need for a practical man with.plenty'of  experience   ana' a   knowledge   of   all  kiudsfof trees is evident.  I     In-the,ease of fruit trees It may be  necessary to thin out the branches to  permit the free circulation of air and'  light���������very essential ,things to strong,  healthy growth.   Such pruning is done  in the winter any time after the leaves  have fallen,'though wounds will prob-,  ably heal with greater ease if made toward spring.  A careful painting of the t  wounds, however." makes it safe earlier.  Should the growth of the trees be too  straggling thoy should be pruned lightly during early summer while the sap  Is active and growth Is being made. At  -the  same .time "it  will encourage the  production of fruit buds which are" set  on short spurs.'       .    "'       '  "As regards the ornamental trees;fho  same rule will apply to the thinning  out of biauchos.   The weaker ones are  Of course to be removed, allowing the"  strong ones to remain.   If they are to  be ,put   into   shape!   possibly: a   little  pruning in winter and a little moiejn  May or June, when growth is resumed,  would bring about the desired results.  The flowering trees and shrubs must  be pruned according to their respective  characters.     If  it   is  desirable  to   retail]  flowering buds  for the first- season, most early blooming plants should  not be pruned  very much  until after  they  have  bloomed., as  the flowering  buds are formed  the season previous.  Of course a  thinning out  wTIl, do uo  harm   in   this   respect   and   will   give  much more strength" to the branches.'

Herrington, as  shown in our illustration, says Gardening.  Wooden cleats wall wrapped In tissue  paper are securely fastened across the  box. and each Individual flower Is tied  thereto just below the base of the  bloom. No amount of rough handling  by expressmen can possibly do any  damage to the contents, and as an additional precaution against dryness or  heat the end of each stem Is wrapped  In water soaked tissue paper.  Tyingr Up Red Raspberries.  "I would not tie up the canes to wires  until the latter part of March or, 1st of  April.   The snow will be an advantage  to them.    The canes being nearer the  ground,  it will protect the fruit beds,  and a heavier crop will be the result*  The wind will do no damage to speak  of after this time of the year.    In the  spring I would stretch the wire tightly,  trim out all but four to six canes and  tie rather loosely to the-wire.   If there  is only a small patch, a good way is to  stretch a wire on each side of the row  so that  the  wires  will  be about two  feet apart, then taking old barrel staves  or any other suitable material place at  right  angles   with   the , wire  between  each hill.    But if grown in hedge form  the two wires will do about as well.   Of  course this would be rather expensive  in growing raspberries by the acre, but  for home gardens it  is all  right    If  growing them on a large scale, a good  way.is to tie them.to small staves driven in the ground near the hill."    The  foregoing   opinion   is   expressed   by  a  Michigan grower in American Gardening.  Sumrr.ary ot collections to  date  Pri.c-ec-8 oi Pros. Pane's '  ' Entertainment $  , Messrs.

But he wasonly vaguely conscious that  he wasion the scene, Just as a soldier in  ���������   a battle often-rights like a hero^vith only  a .dim  appreciation of  what   is,going on  , around him.   When Halstead road of his  team's victory next day. it seemed to him  liko something in which ho had taken no  part.   He played like a man in a trance,  receiving  the severest  punishment   without realizing that he was hurt.. Now aud  then he felt his companions throw their  arms around him and hug him in tho wild  enthusiasm  with   which  college boys  re-  waid   each  other  for  a  good   play,   but  .hi 1st end   wont   through   the  groat   irnme  thinking ot   the girl  lie  had   mot  over a  year ago. '  It was. at a dance given long before the  war had become a possibility. Halstead  had thought the gill one of the nicest he  had ever mote She had a brilliant solitaire dimple *that fascinated him when  she smiled. He had danced with her  throe times and had carried her off in triumph from the other follows to Mrs.  Venable's little palm room, which had  been tbe background for many a flirtation. And there he had discovered that  the prettiest girl he had met during the  term was a higher educated young person, -with "views." despite the dimple  and a crown of fluffy, childish brown hair  caught up with a frivolous blue ribbon.  Sho was taking a course in  metaphysics,  and   when   he  said   something about  cilling iie\t tl.i.v sin- liiii'iilii-d hint b>  toll  ing him that sho was going u> n-.-id a pa  per  before ono of the cI<i**m-*-  ihe  billow  ing morning.   The subject   ������.-i* "Subconscious  .Mind   Forces."   Sho asked  him   if  ho didn't  think brain currents very inter  est ing.  Conversation was impossible with a  girl liko that, so thoy danced again, and  then Halstead evacuated in favor of one  of the others who had boon clamoring  for her as a partner. Ho thought with  giirn satisfaction that a girl who talke'd  metaphysics in a conservatory was not  likely to make a groat hit with any. of  them, but he kept his eye on her during  the evening and noticed that she ate ices  and sandwiches just like the other girls.  Later lie saw little Thorpe helping her  with her wrap, and he hated him.  Next morning he found himself going  across the campus ,to the hall, and he  mot Thorpe wearing a faded rose on his  coat and ah air of importance that sat  somewhat humorously upon his four foot  two.  The girl with the dimple read a lengthy  paper that was a mingling of mystical  ideas sot forth in a fascinatingly poetic  style,. which ' carried hor hearers with  hor. although much she had written was  preposterous. There were evidences that  she had skimmed such end of the century  sciences as theosophy and other cults  treating of the mysterious forces of the  mind. The idea of souls communicating  with each other through time and space  was the theme of her paper, and this  sho had dressed up in Corelliesque flights  of words that seemed to enchant hor  hearers. She related instances of persons  being drawn was? ?eas and  continents  ln onpdience to the summons of some  mastering mind. (  Halstead felt it a pity that such a nice  girl should, be floundering among unknown mysteries of this sort. ' Ho imagined tier in a few years with glasses  and uncurled hair lecturing classes. Next  day lie called on the Venables with the  idea of putting forth one more effort to  reform her, but Mrs. Vonable said the  girl' bad boon called suddenly .to Baltimore through tho death of an uncle. She  was now one of the richest young women in the country.*. And then'to Halstead she became a memory. c  One day he picked up a New Yoik paper.,and thp eyes of tho girl ronkod out  from nne of the na������.res. Her oicture woa  wreathed- in flags in connection with  a  story about the war just declared against  Spain. ] The girl ��������� had ��������� joined the lied  Cross forces'as a nurse and was to start,  for the south immediately. She had  given liberally from her fortune to eauip  an expedition and was leaving her home  and friends to stand beneath the' flag.  Halstead had been stirred to the wildest form of enthusiasm from the, very outbreak of the Cuban trouble. -Now'ho  seemed to decide. He organized a company of his mates at the university, and  they marched on Board, a transport a few  weeks later, bound south. His mind was  suddenly filled with' thoughts of her.  Their common patriotism seemed to have  united them. He prated that chance  would send him to whatever part of the  earth she.might be in, so that he could  make known his chivalrous devotion to  her.. She had become pait-of the most  vital impulse he uad,ever known.    <  lie  had   never got any   farther'south  than one of the awful camps where the-  men< fairly rotted into th/dr graves from  fever and starvation.   With his companions  he waited' and  hoped  for an  order  sending   them   to   Cuba. ������ Then   he   was  stricken and lay for weeks in.tho shadow  of death.   In his illness he hoard again of,  hor.   She had become famous by her devotion andjCouiago in caring for the fever-  patients.- In  his'delirium  he {nought ot,  her and wondered simply why sho did not  come to nurse him as1 girls did  in hooks  Sometimes ho thought she 'was fhoie ami  ca'lled fhenurse by hor name,   'i    ,������    ',  ,   When the war ended.

When he came back, he was consc-ous  .tli.it  some one bad  jnst   kissed  him and  -that   it   was  a   woman.     He  submitted,  weakly thinking ho must havo imagined  it.    Then he became aware that he was  lying on his back in a moving ambulance,  with his head on somebody's lap.    There  was a mingled'odor of orris and carbolic.  It recalled the hospital.    There wTas the  girl's face, just as he had often seen ,it  before, leaning over his camp cot.    Hid  the fever come back again?  "Of coutse," he said slowly, almost  binding, "it���������isn't���������you, really? It is���������  the nurse."  "It is I," said thp girl, with a break in  ber voice.    "I've carried  you off in one  of our  ambulances.

His eyes closed.  .,���������  -Then he raised himself painfully on his  good  arm and   took   her  baud  in   his as  though be.were afraid that it would molt.  He saw the driver's  back "and, shoulders  outlined  in space.   And  ho saw her eyes  ���������trembling .with   tears   and   filled   w-itli  a  sweetness that   he   had  dreamed   of  for  more than a year.    He was  thinking of  something he imagined had happened as  he came back to consciousness.   He wondered if she had.  Suddenly looking-in her mystical eyes  be thought of the girlish essay aliout the  souls that had traveled to.ward'each other  over space and timo.

'After'awhile the sound  died away slowly."  - Kinglake thought he had been the victim of a hallucination, but it is .probable  that he heard actual musical sounds, either -issuing from the rocks' beneath the  sand' or caused by- the friction of the  particles of sand over which the travelers wore walking, as in the case of a  curious ^mountain which Darwin visited  in Guiana.'
