London, March 27.���������The estimates of the career of Cecil Rhodes  and its effect on the history of the  British empire are coloured largely  by the political views of* the papers  mak ng them, but the opinion is  unanimous in the press here that in  spite of the defects and limitations  of his forceful character, few men  have more profoundly impressed  the imagination of their contemporaries or played a larger pari in the  world's  affairs than  Cecil Rh.-des.  With the expressions of admiration for his fceiv.ces are mingled  kindly worded regrets for the disastrous mistake made in the Jameson raid.  CLOTHING  ' >  i-    *- <   j.

The little/:girls^ did"  admirably in both songs, recita-^  ' tions and dialogues,everything being remarkably well chosea and  suited to the age of the young performers, ������ aiid we are sure that the  parents as well as children must  feel extremely grateful and   appre-  ** /  ciative towards Mrs Glassford for  o s  the attention and caie she bestowed  on these childien in training them. .  It is very often a difficult task'to"  keep up  the  interest  of  children,  but these little ones seemed to enter-r  heart and  soul   into their various  0  parts thus making the evening "attractive to their audience and pro- ���������  fitable to themselves. Want of  space forbids us mentioning the  names of all who took part, but we  think that little Miss Hunden stood  first on the list, her song being  smoothly and sweetly sung and in  a very childish .manner. Miss  Belyea and Miss M. E. White's  recitations were ex remely good.  Mibses Ina Whito and Flo Mc-  Knight also distinguished themselves  in   their  recitations   which  were well received. The chorus  " Ise gwine back to Dixie," was irresistibly sweet, sung by the fresh  young voices of the children. Miss  May Anle)4-also sung "You can't  play in my yard," very sweetly,  while last but not least was a dialogue in which Misses McKnight,  White and Ethel Short, assisted by  Mrs Glassford, added to the success  of the.previous portion or. the programme. Addresses were given by  Revs .'Wilkinson and Cleland, also  the rector, Rev. Mr Glassford, after  which refreshments were served by  the ladies of the church.

He could  not forget that I was one of the people  vaguely referred to as "the bosses," to  whom the cook had so often threatened  to report bim. Once or twice I called  him over to me and tried to get him to  talk, but bis evident uneasiness during  this ordeal induced me to give it up.  After awhile, however, Spider so far  forgot his reserve as to grin as he passed  me, and then, finding that I took no  official notice of his many misdeeds, he  gradually unbent and finally became  quite friendly in a condescending sort  of way. Little by little he got into the  habit of coming to my tent instead of  going to the corral, and at'length, after  considerable hesitation, he brought his  sewing with him.  "What is it that you're trying to  make. Spider?" I asked him as he  seated himself, tailor fashion, in the  shade of the tent fly and unrolled his  leather bundle. "Chaps," he replied,  holding them up for   inspection.    Then  "What is it that you're trying to make.  Spider?"  I saw that it was a pair of chapparejos  ���������shortened in the vernacular to  "chaps"���������that he had. They are leather  leggings such as cowboys wear. Originally this pair was made and bad evidently been worn by a rather large  man. but Spider had cut them down to  fit his own diminutive lggs, and with  infinite patience he was stitching up  the side seams. I could see no reason  why a cook's assistant should have so  urgent a need pf a pair of cowboy leggings that he should go to all that trouble to get them.   In fact, I said as mncb  to Snider '  (To be Continued.)  From the Brockville Recorder.  Sufferers from liver troubles find  life ono of almost constant misery,  growing worse and worse unless  prompt steps and the proper remedy  be taken to restore the organ to its  natural condition. Mrs. Joseph l_e-  claiiV, of Brockville, was such a  sufferer, but has been happily releasee! from the trouble by the only  medicine known to thoroughly restore this important organ to its  normal condition, once disease has  fastened upon it. To a reporter,  'Mrs. Leclaire willingly gave her  story for publication. She said :-���������  "For a long time I suffered severely  from complications of the liver and  dyspepsia. I would awake in the  morning with/pains under my shoulders and in my stomach. My tongue  ���������was heavily coated, and T had a  horrible taste' in my mouth, especially on arising in the morning. .1  ���������was constipated, and at times myc  head would ache so badly that I  could scarcely let it rest on the pillow. There was such a burning sensation in my stomach at times that  it felt as though there was a coal of  fire in it The pain war; especially  se\eiv after eating, and for months  my liio was one of misery. A friend  advised nio to take l)r. Williams'  Pink Pills, and I did so. After  using the first box, there was a ma-  t-'ri.U improvement, and in the course  of l few weeks longer 1 felt that I  was,completely cured My tongue  was .'cleared, the bad taste left roy  mouth,'the pains disappeared, and I  atu as. well as ever I was. Before-  taking the pills I suffered from ln-on-  chitis at times, but it has m*y**r  sirie-. troubled^ me. I can recommend  Dr. Williams':' Pink Pills to anyone  who suffers as I did."  Dr." Williams' Pink Pills restore  health and strength by making new,  rich, red blood, thus strengthening  ���������ev.:���������..-���������'organ in the body. They do  nci". act merely upon the. .symptoms,  as ordinary medicines do, but go directly to the root of tho trouble. In  this'way they cure such diseases as  liver and kidney troubles, rheumatism, paralysis, St. Vitus' dance,  heart troubles, sick headaches, anaemia, and the irregularities .that  make the lives of so many women  one of constant misery. Do not be  persuaded to take any substitute ;  see that the full name "Dr.Williams'  Pink Pills for Pale People" is on  the wrapper around every box.

' t  The strange case of Miss Stone,  tlie American missionary, who was  captured by brigands m Tuikey,  has an international aspect that is  being carefully considered by the various governments interested. Just  such a case.might be the means of  involving not only Turkey and Bul-  -garia in, war; but the whole of Europe and the United .States. The  reason for this is apparent when the  affair, io studied in all its lights.  Should the theory that Aliss  Stone's capture originated with the  Macedonian Committee' be pro\ed  there would be no doubt' that its  purpose was to embroil 'the United  States with Turkey and thus hasten  the overthrow of the tottering Ottoman empire. It is a notorious fact  that the Macedonians rhave been  working tooth and nail to find sonic  way of causing Turkey trouble that  would at the same time give them  an opportunity to break away from  the'suzerainty of-the Sultan.  Macedonia was formerly a Bulgar-  iancprovmcc, and, naturally enough,  _thc Macedonians have, been egged on  in their designs by the authorities of  Bulgaria. Not only so, but they  have been,openly supported by Prince  Ferdinand "of Bulgaria^ who has raised ta large army to assist them when  the 'revolution begins.'

Perhaps it is that royalty ,grows  tired of being royalty with its' hedg-  ings of prerogative, and the, Sovc?-  eign enjoys thus putting himself for  a short, period upon the level ' of  other men. Pre-eminence of birth  will do many things, but there are  some ,it cannot do, and one of these  is ��������� it will not1 hclp^its possessor  to shoot straight. For an interval  then the King 'becomes a man, and a  maii moreover who hits or misses  like his fellows on the hillside or in  the  forest".  From immemorial ages great kings  have been great hunters.* ,The King-  must amuse himself, and' it is n towards this realm of sport that we  find his inclination, usually turning.  All through history ,thc overwrought rulers of men have been 'accustomed to leave, the business "ancl  anxieties of their lives to_ seek relief  among the darkj woods and black  mountains,, ' where for awhile they  may forget the cares of state.   > !

STONE.  persecutions caused the Turco-Rus-  sian war of 1877. By the treaty of  peace which" followed the conclusion  of this war the Sultan granted to the  Macedonians independence similar to  that enjoyed by the Bulgarians, but  a conference of European powers restored the province to Turkey, upon  guarantees that a Christian (Jovei-  nor would be appointed and that persecution and excessive taxation  would cease. True to tradition, the  Sultan has ncglectud to fulfill these  conditions. In consequence of thus  the Macedonians are in a continual  state of belligerency. c  It     is      asserted    that the United  States  Government has been quietly  sounding     European    powers on the  important      question of an approach  to Bulgaria.        This could only      be  done by the powers waiving the objections to the passage of the 'Dardanelles      Thus all Europe has become  involved in the complications arising  out of the kidnapping of 'Miss Stone  Miss Ellen H.     i.tone, the kidnapped missionary, is now a woman1   of  52,  who has been  laboring      in    the  Turkish     missions for the past      23  yoais      Her home is in Chelsea, Massachusetts,      where her mother    still  lives,   and grave f.ar. have been entertained lest the late of her daughter  might      have  fatal   consequences  for Mrs. Stone, who is an old      woman,  nnd has been for some time m  faiMng health.     Before  Miss      Stone  ���������went      to Turkey she was a      writer  e.ti The  Cpngregationalist,  a   Boston  church      paper.     According  to      her  ���������photographs,'she is a woman with a  resolute  face,  penetrating eyes      and  firm mputh.     It is not the first time  that 'she, has  been  attacked  by   brigands,   although  the previous     occasion  was  without  any' serious'.     consequences.     She was  traveling    with  three  missionaries  when   a band      of  Kurds overtook them,  and proceeded  to annex   -.the horses, leaving them,  however,  with two on which to con-  tinuo  their journey.   "What!"      said  one, of the missionaries  to the'leader,   "aren't you ashamed to rob    defenceless women?"   "No," replied the  man,      calmly;   "besides,   aren't two  big horses  enough  to  carry  four little women?"  '  Wliere  Smoking Is  a. Crime.  There is one country in the world  where it is considered a crime to  smoke. Abyssinia is tho region, and  the law forbidding tobacco dates from  the year 1042. It was at first merely  intended to prevent priests from smoking in the churches, but it was taken  too literally, and nowadays even foreigners have to be careful not to be  seen smoking.  THE DUKE READY FOR A  SHOT.  V _ . "t  black woods vand naked hills.     ,  With the" exception of.the t red  deer, 'the British Isles can only 'offer  to their King grouse, pheasants,  partridges and other game birds,  they provide very liberally in their  own line for the pleasure, of the  sportsman. The bags attained at  big battues are hardly to be surpassed in any pai I of the world. The  King's own coverts at Sandnngham  are capitally managed, and the  stock is increasing with every year.  From 1880 to 1890 the game books  showed a total of something between 6,000 and 8,000 head in a  season. r Since the last named year  the average has mounted up to 10,-  000  and  over.  At Sandringham the shooting parties rarely number more than ten  guns, and here on special occasions  the royal family musteis in great  force. To celebrate the coming of  age of the Duke of Clarence, a large  number were mviied to be present  at a grand battue. These included  the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of  Cambridge, Prince Christian, and  the Duke of York (or rather Prince  George of Wales, as he was then),  and in three days they had accounted forc5,895 head, of which 2,507  were pheasants ��������� a record shoot  His Majesty's shooting performances in England are, however, so  well known that we will not tire the  reader with any further account of  them. But although Britain itself  does not possess the forests and  vast preserves of the Continent, the  same cannot be said of other parts  of the Empire, and the King's experiences have not by any means  bf*en bounded by the limits of the  four seas. For instance, during his  visit to India he had a great deal  of big game shooting He,proved  himself a very certain shot with a  rifle, and his absolute coolness ���������  not to say sang-froid���������when he  brought his first tiger to the ground,  a moment at which a. man's heart  may be .excused if it goes faster than  usual,   was   remnrkablo.

Respect for justice and reverence for  what is right and true are necessary aims  in the home training.   Intelligent discussion of all tradition  as to what is right  and true is, it seems to me, an important  feature of home training.   If gently stated  and  wisely explained,  most tradition  will justify itself or find acceptance after  some   constitutional   amendment.    It   is  true that discussion is often inconvenient,  but when questions are seriously raised in  the home circle they should be seriously  treated. ��������� Professor  Morse   in   Harper's  Bazar.
