The parents, .unwilling to give up  the struggk- while life remained, are  -said to have experimented with special preparations, and as a last resort pinned their faith to Dodd's  Kidney Pills, with the result14 that  to-day th.; girl is in the best of  health.

The .Lords also permit-  messengers    to   ��������� pass  freely  up    'and  down   the floor,   which  would be      a  breach  of privilege in  the Commons..  The side of the House on which 'a  peer sits is no sure indication of his  .-CAS. Unionists still",sit opposite  the Government along with the Liberals. Lord Halifax, tho leader of  the High Churchmen, whose views oil  the Education Bill are the antithesis of Lord Spencer's, sits- behind the  Liberal leader. So does Lord Camp-  erdown, and from that place ho  takes the liberty, of lecturing and  criticising the "Tied Earl."  A singular survival is the fashion  of the tellers who carry little wands  as they count the'members voting.  They stand inside the House and  touch each pee>i- or bishop on' t the  shoulder with the cane as he enters  from the lobfey, and so count the  strength  of their side.  From, the open galleries ,.peeresses  look down on the House, but it is  doubtful if they hear much. The  Lords are not very clear speakers,  and many of them, are not audible in  the public and press galleries.���������London Mail.  i      Last year an  officer in  a  lloyal rc-  ! ginient   was   arrested' for   attempting  '. to get  married,   in.   s, ite   of. the fact  !  that he and his briJe-elejt were elig-  i ible for   the ,___arried" state.

The recorded natural increase  of population, or excess of births over deaths, was 21,857.- The loss by  emigration .amounted to 39,613.

Trailing arbutus  they call it, I thought it would be a  good plan for me to get a few bushels  for you to sell. Sis says she'll help,  only she'won't believe I'll get bushels.,  'But I will, though..

Yesterday afternoon I spent gathering   arbutus   for   Grosvenor.     I   wan-  .dered  "'over the hills and far away.",  My path lay along a track where the  red ore glistened like blood from the  wounded   heart   of   the   range.     The  great pines had been cut away to let  the miners steal the iron framework of  the hill.    A bluejay' flitted before me,  scolding all the way from  his nest to  the tamarack swamp.  '   Perhaps I fell a-dreaming as I gathered  my fragrant burden,   for a sad/  deep purple bad settled over the valley  before 1111 rued homeward.   A soft darkness hact  settled over everything before I entered the town.    The miners  wrro passing like gnomes intothe hills;  and everything seemed so uncanny that  I   was  genuinely   startled  when   some,  one suddenly took;my basket from uie.  It was only a schoolmate of Grosvo-'  nor's, who had joined'me, unobserved.  He,is a descendant of the old voyageurs  who first ventured jnto this region, and  their wild love of nature, breaks out in  him occasionally, with most disastrous  effect upon his education.' He seems to  know that I, tbo, love the natural world'  and has a sense of comradeship.   When  he took' my basket, he already had an'  armful of most perfect blossoms.    He,  had heard I wanted some.  Well, dear, this letter has lasted far'  into, tho night.

Ma didn't say anything then, though  she looked funny. I heard her tell Sis  afterward that she believed every boy  was a primitive man and that it was  only by slow evolushun that he became  a gentleman. After awhile she talked  to me in her room.

It is curious how'the little letter  has proved .a huge ditf erentium. For,  whereas the "Smiths," as a rule, have  been money ' making, the "Smyths"'  have show n themselves chivalrous and  aristocratic. While'the Smiths were  Roundhead the Smyths suffered for  Tory or Jacobite principles, according  to the London Mail. Apropos of these  variations in the spelling of the great  patronymic Mr. Compton Reade propounds a theory'which should prove of  comfort to both branches of the family. He hotly combats the notion that  the Smyths, Smyth'*-4, and Smiths have  assumed a variation of spelling to lend  an aristocratic flavor to a homely name.  "Nothing," he declares, "can be further  from the truth. The original form was  Smyth, just as the modem 'cider' is a  corruption of the ancient 'cyder.' So  far from the Smyths having Smythed  themselves I can discover barely one  notable instance of the change from  'i' to 'y,' but 1 can trace imiubcrlefcs  instances of Elizabethan Smyths having become Victorian Smiths. The rooo  spelling of the .word Sinijtl. is apparently due to the iDgeuipusness of some  medi-eval clerk, who, in writing Smyth,  took upon himself to dot both points of  the *y,V thus producing 'Smijth.'

Under a primeval and  time honored arrangement the au-'  thpHt'ts exact a toll from every  male and female inhabitant within  certain boundaries, the mas_ulii_e  tax being one penny and the female 4  levy a sch.4__d ki'_s. Two burly bea-.  dies, carrying" massive wands cf office, proceed from house to house  levying these quaint taxes, and it^is"  recogni.-'ed on tire day in question  any youth may with impunity embrace any maiden whom he encounters.  The-result is that a veritable carnival of osculation takes place year- .'  ly in Hivngerford, and it attracts  various visitors to the quaint little  town, many of whom participate,  though not entitled to 'do so, in the  delights of the day."  1  ���������i?
