The stock of wheat at Toronto' is 38,-  413 bushels as against 50,854 bushels  last week and 230,813 bushols a year ago.  The whoot markets are stronger.. The  statistical position is strong, and the  gossip favors higher prices. The oontract  wheat in Chicago is only 2,029,000  bushels.  The weather has been against the an-,  thraoite coal market, and stove has continued to sell at about $4 net in New  York harbor, which is 35 cents below the  official oiroular.  Demand was small.  Tho movement of grain in, Ontario has  been curtailed of lato in   consequence   of  bad condition of country roads.

"So," thought private detective Belknap, "I have not left all the beauty behind me, it seoms. I suppose this is the  daughter of mine host."  And so thinking, he reined in his  horse upon the grave'ed,drive and, lifting up his hat, with elaborate courtesy,  said:���������  ''I beliovo this is Mapleton."  The lovely brunetto allowed the , crimson shawl to drop from about her head  as sho came slowly down the steps, never  onoe removing her * dark searching eyes  from his face.  "This is Mapleton, sir. May I ask if  this is Mr.  Belknap?"  Somewhat surprised/ he answered in  tho affirmative.  "Mr. Belknap, the detective," she persisted, and then, seeing that he hesitated,  over his answer, she added, "I am Jasper  Lamotte's daughter, and know that he  expects you."  , " I am the man Mr. Lamotte ��������� expects;''  he said, iln-owing down the reins and  springing from the buggy. . "Is Mr. La-  motte at-home?"  "My father,is in,the library," she re-<  plied, coming still nearer him, > "follow  me, Mr. Belknap, I will send a servant  to take your horse." ''        '  He .followed her up the steps, and across  the broad piazza; as they passed under  the shadow of the arched doorway, she  paused, looked about her, and then,  drawing close to the detective and--laying  one hand lightly on his arm, she, whispered :��������� "  '' Mr. Belknap, I have a word for your  ear alone. Can you meet me <to-night,  where wo shall be secure from intrusion?"  Her burning eyes searched his f.acr*,  and accustomed ��������� as' he was to' strange  situation, Mr. Belknap was startled for a  ���������moment out of his self-possession.

Below and directly under his  gaze, stood a fine bay horse, harnessed to  a new light road wagon; and horse and  owner were somewhat impatiently waiting the. arrival -of Ray, Vandyck, who  was under engagement - to drive with  Doctor Heath, and ' pass ' his opinion on  tho "points" of the handsome bay, a recent purchase of-the doctor's, who was a  lover of a good horse and a fine dog, and  was pever without one or more specimens of each. - :",".'.���������-.  A quick step behind him caused him  to bring his tune to an abrupt close, and  he turned to see Ray, who had entered  hurriedly, leaving the door ajar, and was  busy breaking the seal of a small cream  tinted envelope.  Clifford Heath favored him with a  quizzical glance, and 'came away from  the window1- '   ���������      ���������  "That's a- dangerous looking document,  Ray," laughed/the doctor, throwing himself down in his own favorite chair with  the air ofla .man -resigned to anything.  "I've a shuddering horror, of ..anything  so small and delicately tinted. But read  it, my boy; it's your fate to be persecu-1  ted, you are so amiable."  Ray lost no time-in opening and" scanning the dainty note, and he now turned  a perplexed face toward his friend.  "I'll be hanged if I can understand  it," he said, filiping the note between  his thumb and fingers.    '      ' '       .  "Of   course   you   can't,     'ftf   haying  emanated from the 1 rain of a woman. "; I  .only hope your   ina1 .lity to   comprehend  the incomprehensible is the worst feature  in the case.!" ,  "But.it isn't," protested Ray. "I must  renounce my drive, and your charniing  society."  .  '' Really! is she so imperative, and are  you so much her bond slave?"  Ray laughed. "Imperative," he cried.  "You need not have asked, had you  known the name affixed to this missive,  ���������and you would obey it with as much  alacrity as I shall. Listen, Heath: I can  trust you with a secret, if this be one."  And, unfolding the note, he read:���������  "Raymond Vandyck, etc.  "My -Friend���������By   coming   to   mo, n*  ���������once, on receipt of this note,  you will ���������*'  me a.great favor, and perhaps do one  who is your friend ah ' essential service.

"That Miss Wardour's commands are  to be obeyed; and���������as your horse is  stabled, and mine is at the door, you had  best take mine and lose no time. Perhaps  you may be dismissed as speedily as you  are summoned, and we may take our  drive after all. Go, go,- my ..son;" and he  waved his hand thea orically.  * "Thank you, Heath. You arc a gener-  'ous fellow; but don't look for your red  roan steed until you see it back. I shall  place that and myself at Miss Wardour's  disposal. She shall find that she has summoned no laggard knight."  "Who talks of playing the knight to  Miss Constanco Wardour's 'fair ladye?'  ���������Let him have a care!" cried a*gay voico  from tho doorway. And turning their  eyes thither, they saw the dark, hand-*  some face of Frank , .imottc.  A shade of annoy* .ce crossed the face  of young Vandyck, but ho retorted in tho  "same strain:���������  "I am that happy man. Stand . aside,  sir.

With a laugh, and   another   backward  meaning   glance   at   the' doctor,   young  .Vandyck pocketed his'note,   took   up hist  hat, and murmuring a mocking adieu in  the ear of young   Lamotte,   ran   lightly*  down the stops, and, a moment later, "the  swift fall of _6ofs told   them  he was off.  "What the deuce ails tho fellow?" said  Lamotte,    sourly,    tossing   his   hat  and,  himself   down   upon   the   office   divan.

"Vandyck don't'seem to  realize that   I   have   a   prior claim, and'  that his twaddle,   therefore, . only   serves  to render him ridiculous."  ;'   Clifford Heath dropped his   hand from  before   his   face,   and   turned two stern,  searching' eyes upon tlie' young man.  "Have you a prior claim?" he asked,  slowly. ,  ; For a second the eyes of Frank La-  ���������motte were hidden by their long lashes;  'then they were turned full upon the face  of his interlocutor, as their owner re-  pli ed firmly:���������       ' ,  *    "I have".  >���������*.*���������*���������*  Raymond .Vandyck .lost'-no time on  his*drive to Wardour' ..Place; and ' before'-  he could frame any sort of reasonable  guess as to tho possible 'meaning of Con-  stanco's.notc, ,he found himself . in her  very presence.'

NIGHT IN THE--DESERT.  The  Gloom and  Silence of  Nature Hat a.  .Painful Effect on Humanity.  R.   Tabot   Kelly,    the   English artist  who   illustrated   Slatin   Pasha's   "Fire  and Sword in the Soudan," has   written  a paper for the   Century, which" he calls  "In tha Desert With the Bedouin."    Mr.  Kelly has drawn   a   number   of striking  pictures   for the article.    A. bit   of   kis  description is as follows: Night    iu   the  desert is   very   solemn.    Surrounded   by.  these sandy wastes' melting in the gloom,  the silence of   nature   is almost painful,  and the   occasional   howl .. of a jaokal or  neigh of a horse   only serves to accentuate the   succeeding   stillness,   while tbe  wonderfully rare atmosphere   makes tbe  stars appear   of   such "' unusual size and  nearness that one feels oppressed < with   a  sense of lonely   litrleneus.,   I   am   often  asked how I oooupy my time in  the desert; my reply is, 'Painting.' Everything  is paintable.   and   the   desert   is always  beautiful.'   Infinitely., varied   in texture  and local color,   prolific   of wild flowers  and insect life, its interest is   unending,  while   its trackless   expanse   undulating  to tho horizon seems like an   ocean sud  denly   petrified   into   absolute rest, and  impresses the mind with a sense of vast-  ness and repose .which, .nothing,    in my  opinion, can equal. Again, as tho effects  of varying weather pass over   the   silent  land,   how   perplexing   'are   the     quick  transitions from gray .to* gold as   passing  ���������uh-beams play hide-and-seek among   its  ������claim,with infinite regret, "What a falling off is here?" The players can rise to  a great effort now and then, but the  general acting is at a lower level than  it used to be, and the ancient repertoire  is now rarely played. In fact, we understand that it is not improbable that, the  continuance of the subvention may be  attacked. In the former days when M.  Perrin was director, we said over and  over again that his policy was radically  bad and would end in disaster. Our  words have come true. The old actors���������  Mile. Sarah Bernhardt, Mile.

Tout peut seretablir, as Napoeon III  said'after'Wiasembourg. But it will take  a long time to train up these beginners  into something worthy of the reputation  of the house, and it must be remembered  , that they have now no greater artists,-  familiar with the old traditions, to copy.  The result is that many excellent works  can no longer be given at all, or if attempted are shadows of their former  selves.

Aigrets for ���������adies' Hats. -'.  Thomas Jones pushes quietly into   the  edge of the nesting ground,-ties his boat  firmly with in easy range of the tall snag  he saw, the day before and takes out ^his  .rifie. There is an.aigret on the,tall snag.  Taking a steady aim, he;  fires,   and  the  bird ; whirls down   dead.    One   or   two  other birds start   on their perches in the  same tree, but settle back. .*<; One. by one  they, too, whirl out   and   lie in a  white  tangled mass at the foot of the tree.    An  aigret raises herself up above   the rim of  .the nest on whioh she   sits, and the tiny  bullet pierces her.'  She,whirls down, lying white and motionless.  The little ones  gape and cry, but: no food   comes. ' The  father was killed on the   tree   near   by.  One by   one   out 'of- the   nests, off the  limbs of the trees, hero, there, anywhere  ���������for the   birds   are   all   about   and so  stupid with the breeding fever that they  will not leave���������the   slender   white .birds  meet their   doom.    That   tall   snag   has  yielded 30 victims. Jones has not moved  from   his    boat.    He   has over 300'-birds  down. He can toll by his cartridge boxes,  'for he rarely missos a   shot.    It  is   easy  shooting.    After noon he gathers   up his  spoils. 'A out of the knife and the olurnp  of plumes is off.    Two hundred oaroasses  of aigrots are left lying.  That many niore  to-morrow.    Many   more   than   that the  next day, for by   that   time the wailing  of the dying young of the first day's vio-  tims will have ceased.  From then on, clay by day, increasing  in threefold ratio, the harvest of death  goes on-steadily, pitilessly, on the sowing  grounds of life, out in the silent wilderness where the birds have tried-to hide  their homes. In less than a month it is I  over. The long white lines no longer  cross the country going to and from the  feeding grounds. The white forms no  longer appear on the naked trees. Ddiibly  naked the forest stands in silent desolation. Sodden and discolored, the once  white forms below the trees are sinking  into the slime. From beneath the trees  and from the nests up in the trees a  great stench goes up. Not a bird, young  or old, is left alive. The old ones stayed  till death oame, bound by the great in-  stinot of nature to remain with their  young.���������Forest and Stream.  .  Decline of tne Comodie Francaise.  But when we review the Comedie in  its present state as a whole and oompare  it with what it was 10 years ajo, we ex-  tlon and no direct.effort can accomplish  it. . We cannot change our low spirits  Into higher or our mournful feelings  into cheery ones by simply determining  to do so; but we can apply our force to  bear upon the conditions, on whioh they  rest, we can put to flight many causes  of dejection and nourish many germs of  serenity and comfort. ,  Five Hundred .Years Hence the Windy City ���������  Will Stand Iu a Great Lake.   '��������� '  Chicago has troubles ahead of her���������none  of your ordinary, everyday 'troubles; but  the real thing in mental disquieters.  True, it is 500 years off, but posterity,  must be considered.  Professor G. K. Gilbert of the  United  States geological survey is responsible for  this prediction.    For a number of years-(  .the professor has been making notesof the -.  rise and fall of  the great lakes from his'  'own observa''ons and from the records of   -'  the government, surveys.    From these he  declares the waters at tho lower end of  Lake Michigan riso-six inches in each,'  . century, and that the lake is preparing to  overflow its'southern edge-to' the infinite1: '"  discomfort- of the Chicagoan of the future.  ���������If his figures speak truly, the'whole district covered by theJ great lakes is un'der-r - ;  going a change of, level, and hebelieves it     f  will only bo a matter of time before their   *  outlet into'the.'Atlantic is closed and a���������, ,,  new one through-the basin of tho Missis- !  sippi is opened. * A\s the land in the neighborhood .of Chicago. is the lowest along .  ������  the lake  shore, it is there Professor Gilbert V I.1-? loV.-s'cd 41.v������ outlet of-tho future. .*-..'

That we live in, an   age   of reform is  -one of the " ever-present   facts that faces  intelligence.    To define the-fine line that  separates mere   change   from   reform   is  difficult. Some of us?go through life 'with  the feeling '< that ��������� all ��������� things of the past  are bad, are 'not   up   to the standard of  the knowledge   of to-day, so that we ar^  prepared to revise and throw aside . every  opinion.    Every new   idea- is accepted as  an advance. ��������� Change   is 'not always ,pro-  gress^ nor discoveries the,mile-stone,'������������������;the  trade-marks   of knowledge.    All   that, is  valuable In   the   increase   of  knowledge  simplifies living. -Living: becomes an art,  the   perfection   of   which ceases only-at  the g'raye," so . that   the whole of .life-dis  cumuiative.v .To   master  .the knowledge  that brings God into closer relation, that  makes life not a period.of suffering, but  a period of   acquisition,   of   health   and  happiness; to make   health   the   normal  condition   of   every, .soul? born    in this  world is to make visible   the divinity in  man that is his crown of glory,    This   is  possible only as   the   new   builds on the  old.'   Construction,   "not   destruct-ion, is  the mark of   progress.    Cumulation   not  annihilation, is   the   secret   of  spiritual  growth; whether   for the   individual   or  the nation.    The   mastery of the past is  possible   only   when   wisdom    sits   en-,  throned.    Change   is not,   then, the impulse   of   the   moment,    but   tho silent  growth of the passing days,   unheralded,  but .known   by   the   fine   impulse that  makes for. bettor things.  To Drive a Needle ThroatrU i������ Copper Coin.  ."An apparent moohanical impossibility  may be accomplished by simple means,  using a copper c<3nt, and a oork, with a  common cambric needle as accessories,"  writes magician Hairy Kellar, describing  "How I Do My Tricks" in the Ladies'  Home Journal. "Announce that you will  drive a small needle through a coin, and  few will be ready to accept your statement, yet it is very simple and any one  can do it. Take a copper coin, place it  npon two small blocks of wood, leaving  a very narrow open space between the  blocks. Now, having seleoted a good,  sound cork, force the needle through it  until the point just appears at the other  end. ��������� Break off the portion of the head  of the needle showing above the top of  the cork. Place the cork upon the coin  and strike it a fair, smart blow'with  a hamm,er. The needle will be driven  entirely through the penny by a single  blow." .   Unavoidable   Delay.  "It's three-quarters of an hour since I  {ordered that turtle soup," snapped the.  angry guest at the restaurant.  "Yaas, sah," said the waiter, with an  obsequious bow, '' but de turtle done make  his 'scape, sah, and dey had to chase him  'bout a mile, sah.''���������Detroit Free Press,     J  An English Journalist Had a Hard Tim* *  '     Writing-Up the Capital pf Tibet.  ;Henry Savage Landor, grandson of Wal-,  ter Savage Landor and himself an artist,  traveler and writer of some fame, ihaa"  fallen a victim in the service of new jour-  rialism of' a British brand.'' Last March  he was commissioned by Mr. EJarmsworth,* ���������  proprietor of the sensational London Mail,  to visit Shassa, the capital of-Tibet, and  "write up" the sacred city.    In spite of  "the fact that the' land of Tibet"' is well  known to be forbidden ground to all stran-'  gers and that -the man who attempts to  penetrate  to 'the'mysterious city of the  gods ; takes his life in his hands, Mr. Lan- .  dor undertook the task.

It  was only his good fortune'that the grand  llama changed the verdict to torture on  what is known as "the  stretching log."]  Mr. Landor was burned with hot irons,!  kept in chains for eight days and stretched 1  for hours on a rack which severely injured'  his limbs and spine.   Then he was hustled]  over the Indian border and advised to stay|  where he belonged.  This is probably the roughest experience  which Mr. Landor has ever undergone in  any of his numerous wanderings in foreign countries, although he has made exploring tours in other parts of Asia and in  Africa, South America and Australia. He  has written and illustrated several interesting books of travels, but now he has  materials for a volume which' ought toj  eclipse all his former descriptions of exciting events.

By filling the Silo .lowly it will hold a  great deal more, and the ensilage will be of  better quality on accoent of the greater  preaiure.

Next set up the corners' stud*,  2x8, brace them, and raise the frame out-  eide. Raise the top one first; make it secure  then ������st up the remaining .tud.; jaat lean  them against the top frame. By doing this  one does not have any trouble getting them  lie afterwards; then raise the remaining  II<MII, There should be one for every two  feet in height of the Silo. After getting  them in place, wt up the studs. There  ehould be eae for every foot around the Silo.  Then taka shlplap and line it horlaentally  to the top. Cover again with tar paper and  line up and down with flooring. Be sure to  plaoe a strip in the eorner as there may be  acme ������_ get in there.

The application forms can be obtained from the  collector of voter* for each district, either  personally or by mail, and returned to  the collector filled in, either personally or  by mail, and two months after the collector has received the application forms,  which he posts ia his office for that period  the names, if ao objections have been  filed, are transferred to the voters register. Where the voter is registered  elsewhere, and desires to transfer his  name from the voters register in another  district in this province to this, he should  notify the collector (either personally or  by letter) in the district where he formerly resided to remove his name from the  list, and apply (on the regular form) to  the collector in this district a here he now  resides and has resided for two months,  to be placed on the voters' list of this  district, may, of course, be made immediately after notification to be removed  from the old has bean made or mailed,  the act expressly siaUnt that proof of  having written and sent* stab, notification  shall be sufficient A penalty of $50 will  be incurred by any one who ihall apply  to be put on one list without giving  notice to be removed from another where  he may he registered."  If one does not wish to lose his vote, he  should attend to this matter at once, as  amplication must be made-two months  before election, and there may be an  e.tr!y election, probably in three months.

You couldn't get along without;  me then; and you can't get along now it  seems, for all your fine feathers, without  you come here sometime to   brag of your  exploits,   and   pretend  you   tire  lookin'  after the boy."    ���������  "Nance," aaid Burrill, "you're a fine  old bird! 'Off I'd like'to set you at my  old father-in-law, blarst hir_, when he  rides it too rough sometimes, and, w.hat  a sociable little discourse you could lay  down for the ladies too, Nance; but, are  you about done? You're been clean over  the old ground, seems to me, tho' I may  have dozed a little here and ,there. Have  you been "over the old business, and  brought me over the water', by the nape  of the neck; because, if you haven't���������  no,"I see you hare not,,so here's to you,  Nance, spin on;" and he took from his  pocket a black bottle, and drank a mighty  draught therefrom.  "No',  'I'm   not' done,"   screamed   the  woman.    "You've come here to-nigHfc, as  you have before, for a purpose; one would  ( think that such' a fine   gentleman   could  ��������� find better   society,'   but   it   seems   you  f can't    You never come here for nothing;  I you never come for any   good; you want  ! something? What is it?"  !     He laughed a low, hard laugh.  I     "Yes,".he said,, taking another pull at  the black bottle; "I want something."  !     "Umph! I thought so."  !     "I'want*to tell you,''   here   he   arose,  and dropping his careless manner, laid a  threatening hand upon her.arm. "I want  to tell you, Nance Burrill, that you have  got to bridle that.tongue   of   yours; d'ye  understand?"  She shook; off his hand,   and   retired a  few paces eyeing him closely as she said:���������  "Oh! I   thought   so.    Something   has  scared ye already."  "No, .I'm-not scared; that   thing can't  be done by. you,, Nance;   but   you   have  been' blowing too   much   among tho factory people, and I won't hare it."  j     "Won't have what?"  j     "Won't, have   any   more   of this talk  about going   to   my   wife   with   stories  about me."  r .   "Who said I threatened?''  ,'     "No matter, you don't   do   much that  I don't hear" of, so mind your eye, Nance.  As for the women at   the   bend,   you let  ��������� them alone, and-  keep   your   tongue between your,, teeth." .. .       .    .   -  "Oh!" I will; one can't   blame  you for  seeking the society.of your   equals,   after  the snubbing   you   must   get from your  betters up there.    But   that don't satisfy  ^you; you   must ��������� drag   that   poor fellow,  'Evan Lamotte, into   their   den; as   if he  I were not wild enough, before   you   came  j where you could- reach him."  ;     John Burrill took another pull   at   the  black bottle.  .."Evan's a good-fellow," he said   sonae-  ' what thickly.    "He knows enough to appreciate a in.an-' like   me,   and   we both  hare larks, how] let me tell you."-  "Well, have your larks; but don't sit  and'drink yourself blind before my very  eyes. Why don't you go?"  "'Cause I don't wan'er���������/''���������growing  more and'''more mellow, as the liquor  went fuming to his head, already pretty  heavily loaded with brandy and wine.  "Where's the little rooster, I tell yer."  "In the streets, and he's too much like  his father to ever come hume, ' 'till he's  gone after, and,dragged in "  "Well, go and drag him in then, I'm  ��������� goin' ter see 'im."  "I won't!" shrieked the woman, now  'fairly beside herself with rage; "go home  j to your lady -wife, and take her my com-  ! ulinjents; tell her that I turned you  , out."        -   ._.  John Burrill staggered to his feet,  uttering a brutal oath.  "You'll turn me out,   will   you?   You  say won't to me; you   are  forgetting my  i training, Mrs. Nance; I'll teach you that  j John Bumil's   yer   master   yet; go   for  the boy.'"  But the woman did not stir.  "You. won't eh !" clutching her   fiercely, and shaking her violently,   "now will  , you?*'  "No, you brute."  "Then, take that, and that, and that!'"  ' A rain of swift blows; a shriek ringing  out on the stillness of the night; then a  .swift *������tcp, tho door dashed in, and John  Bui-rill is measuring his length upon the  bare floor.  The   woman reels, as the clutch of the  .miscreant loosens from her arm,    but re- I  1 covers herself and   turns   a   bruised face  .; toward the timely intruder.  It is Clifford  Heath.  "Are you badly hurt?" he asks, anxiously.  She lifts a hand to her poor bruised  1'acu, and aching head, and then sinking  into a chair says,  wearily:���������  "It's nothing���������for me. Look out,  sir!"  This last was an exclamation of warning. John Burrill had staggered to his  feet, and was aiming an unsteady blow  tit the. averted head of Doctor Heath.  The latter turned swiftly, comprehending the situation at a glance, and once  more felled the brute to the floor.  By this time others had appeared upon  the   scene���������neighbors,, roused   by the ciy  , of the "woman.  Doctor Heath   bent   again to examine  ' her face..    He had .scarcely   observed the  | features of the man he had just  knocked  down; and he now asked:���������  ��������� ��������� Is���������:this man your husband, madam?''  The woman reddened under har bruises.  [     "He was my husband," she   said,   bitterly.    "He is���������John Burrill."  '     Clifford Heath started back,   thinking,  first of all, of Sybil,   and   realizing   that  there must be no scandal, that   could  be  avoided, for her sake.  He had never seen  Burrill, save at a distance, but hod heard,  as had every one in W���������, of his   divorced  Turning to one of the neighbors, he  said: "I was passing on my way home  from Mrs. Brown's, when I heard this  alarm. I think, good people, that we had  better let this fellow go away quietly,  and attend to this woman. Her face will  be badly swollen by and by." Then he  turned once more toward Burrill.  Once more the miscreant was struggling to his feet, and at a command from  Doctor Heath, he hastened his efforts.  Hitherto, he had had only a vision of a  pair of flashing dark eyes, and an arm  that shot out swiftly, and straight,home.  Now, however, as he gained an erect  posture, and turned a threatening look  upon his assailant, the onlookers, who all  knew him, and all hated and feared him,  saw a sudden and surprising transformation. The red all died out of his fuce, the  eyes seemed starting from their sockets,  the lower jaw dropped abjectly and suddenly, and, with a yell of terror, John  Burrill lowered his head and dashed from  the house, as if pursued by a legion of  spectres.  CHAPTER XIX.  The sudden and surpi-isin.g exit of Burrill caused, for a moment, a stay of proceedings, and left the group, so rapidly  gathered in Nanee Burrill's kitchen,  standing en tableaux, for a full minute.  Dr. Heath-was the first to recover from  his surprise,and as betook in the absurdity of the scene, he uttered a low laugh,  and turned onoe more toward the woman,  Nance, who seamed to have lost herself  in a prolonged stare.  ' * Your perseoutor does ��������� not like my  looks,'apparently," he said, at the same  time taking from his pocket a small  medicine case. "Or was it'some Of these  good friends that put him to flight?"  And lie glanced at the group gathered  near the door. r  A woman with a child in her arms,  and her husband with two more in  charge, at her heels; a family group to  the rescue; two or three old women, of  course; and a man with a slouching gait,  a shock of , unruly red hair, and a face  very much freckled across the cheek  bones, and very red about the nose; the  eyes, too, had an uncanny squint, as if  nature had given up her task - too . soon  and left him to survey the world through  the narrow slits. This man- had always  an air-of being profoundly interested in  the smallest affairs of life, perhaps because the slits through which he gazed  magnified the objects gazed upon, and he  peered about him now with profoundest  solicitude. This was Watt .Brooks, a mechanic, and hanger-on about. the mills,  where he did an occasional hit of odd  work, and employed the balance of his  time in gossiping among the -women, or  lounging at tho drinking saloons, talking  a great deal about the wrongs of the  working classes, and winning to himself  some friends from a" certain turbulent  class who listened admiringly to his loud  communistic oratory.  Brooks had not been long in W���������, but  he had made rapid headway among that  class who, having little or nothing to  love or to fear, are not slow to relieve the  monotony of very bare existence by appropriating to themselves the friendship  of every hail.fellow whom chance throws  in their way.  Accordingly Brooks had become a sort  of oracle among the dwellers in "Mill  avenue," as the street was facetiously  called, and he was ready for any diBh of  gossip, not infrequently making himself  conspicuous as a teller of news; he was  faithful in gathering ��������� up and retailing  small items among such ladies of the  "avenue" as, being exempted from mill  work because of family cares, had time  and inclination*, and this latter was  seldom lacking, to ohatter with him  about-the latest mishap, or the one that  was bound to occur soon.   -      ';  Prominent among the gossips of Mill  avenue was that much abused matron  Mrs. John Burrill number one, and she  had not been slow to discover the advantages of possessing such an acquaintance  as Mr. Brooks; accordingly they gravitated toward each other by mutual attraction, and it was quite a common thing  for Brooks to drop,in and pass an evening hour in the society of Mrs. Burrill,  sometimes even taking a cup of tea at  the table of the lone woman on a Sunday afternoon.  As Doctor Heath laid his��������� case.upon the  small pine table, and prepared to deal  out a soothing lotion for the bruised  Mrs. Burrill, Brooks advanoed courageously, supported on either hand by an  anxious old lady, and the chorus commenced.  "It warn.'t us as scared him. out, sir,"  said Brooks, positively. "He's seen all. of  us, first and last. Maybe as he's had  cause for remembering you sir?" and  Brooks peered anxiously at the doctor, as  if hoping for a prompt confirmation of  this shrewd guess.  "Sure, an' it was a guilty conscience,  if ever I seen one, as made the brute  beast run like that, from the sight of the  doctor," chimed in first old lady, who  quarreled with her "old man" on principle, and soldom came out second best.  "Faith, an' the nuu-therin' wretch has  half killed ye, Burrill, dear."  "I was that soart'with the screamin',"  said the mother of three, "that I nearly  let the baby fall a-runnin' here."  And then they all gathered around Mrs.  Bun-ill, and talked vigorously, and all  together, while Brooks, hovoringnear the  doctor, pursued his investigation.  "A bud lot, that Burrill, sir. I've seen  him, frequent; and so he's had occasion  to know you, sir?"  "No, my good fellow; I never had the  honor of meeting Mr. John Burrill before,," replied Doctor Heath, smiling at  the man's pertinacity.  "Now,   I   want   to know," exclaimed  Brooks, in acoents of real distress, "then  what could have set him off   like   that?"  "I suppose we were getting   too many  for him," replied the doctor, easily.  "Not a bit of it sir. Burrill ain't no  coward, especially when he's in liquor;  and he and me's on good enough terms,  too; though, of course," said Brooks, recollecting himself, and glancing anxiously at the reclining figure of the injured  one, '' of course, I would never stand by  and see a lady struck down, sir."  "Manifestly not," replied   the   doctor,  drily. "Then, as he .would not fear you,  and could not fear me, he must have been  in the first stages of 'snake seeing.' " .  - "It's my opinion, he took you for some-1  body else, as he has reasons to be afraid  of," said one of the women, with an emphatic nod.  But here the voice of the heroine of the  ocoa'sion rose high' above the rest.  "John Burrill wasn't so drunk as to  run away from a man he never saw, or  to see crooked," she said, fiercely. "I  saw the look on his face, blinded tho' I  was, and he's afraid of you, Doctor  Heath. I don't know why. There's some  secrets-in John Burrill's life that I don't  know, and there's more- that* I wish-1  didn't know; but here, or somewhere  else, he has known you, sir. Perhaps  only by sight; but he's afraid of you,  that's certain."  There was no reply from Doctor Heath;  he was busy over his medicine  case.    He  prepared a lotion,    to   be   applied to the  bruises, and a sedative,   to   be applied to  the nerves- of the   patient,    who   was beginning to recover lxei*self in a   measure,  and launched   out into a   torrent   of invective against the author of her trouble;  after which she rushed into a wild recital  of her wrongs,    beginning   at   the   time  when she left a good place   in   England,  to follow the   fortunes   of   John Burrill,  and-running with glib' tongue   over  the  entire gamut of her trials since.   And all  of this, although it was   far from new to  the dwellers of Mill Avenue, was listened  to, by them, with absorbed interest,   and  the   proper  accompaniment   of   ejaculations at the proper places.    During   this  discourse, to which' Brooks  listened with  evidences   of   liveliest   interest,  ' Doctor*  Heath remained   seemingly   inattentive,  waiting for a lull in the   storm; when it,  came at last, he ascertained as   briefly "as  possible, -who among tho   women   would  remain, and pass  .the   night   with  Mrs.  Burriir; gave her direction, as to the use  she was to make sf the medicines he had  prepared, and   buttoned  his   coat   about,  him, preparatory to departure.  As his hand was upon   the   latch,, the.  voiee of his patient axvoetad him.  "Dootor," she said, earnestly. ' "It  wouldn't be gratitude in* me' to* let you  go away without'a.word of warning. I  don't want to pry into your affairs, but  let me'tell you this: You are not'-' done  with John Burrill; you took him by surprise to-night; but? I'll wager he is over  his scare by now,'and he is plotting how-  he can get another   sight   at  you, unbe-  ing his* way carefully,' lest some obstacle  at his feet should cause him to stumble,  he gained the window, pressed his face  close to the shutters ami peered'through.  Clifford Heath was pacing up and down  his cosy sitting room, seemingly lost in  perplexed thought, -'and, as, again and  again his face was turned to the light,  tlie watcher atudied'it olosely; finally he  seemed satisfied with his scrutiny, for he  turned away and ��������� groped back to the  ���������street once moye. ,   ���������  "it's the, other i one,"'he muttered,  drawing a long breath of relief. --"'l. might  have known it from the first; so he is the  young doctor they! tell of!- "Well, ' it's a  rum game that brings him liere, and it's  c.j'tain he don't'want to be*'-known.

Give us a  flssj olcman, an' come-long to Forty's,!"  ,"Brooks," said Burrill, taking -him  sociably, by the arm, a*_d facing ' toward  the' saloon in quftstiioh. r*A������_rooks, 'you're  drunk; you're beastly drunk-;' drunk as.a  sailor-by all that's -sober.'.' ..And,together  they entered MQld Forty Rods"."' .',  -chapter; xx.  <:���������/')  known to yourself; and, if he has reason  to be afraid of you, then look ��������� out - for  him; you have reasons for being afraid  too."  Doctor Heath hesitated a moment, and  a shade' of annoyance crossed his face,  then he said in his usual careless tone:���������  "Give yourself no uneasiness about  this matter, madam; -I never saw -the  scoundrel before, and he was simply-  afraid of my fist. However, if he ever  should-cross my path," be" assured I shall  know ;how to dispose of him;" and  Clifford Heath bowed and went" out into  the night, little reckoning .that he had  left his life in the hands of five old  women.  In a short time, , Brooks arose and  shuffled out, and then the tongues were  onoe more loosened; the husband attendant had been ordered home with ; his: two  charges, and the chief subject of their  converse was Doctor Heath, ajid. tho  strange influence", he had exerted upon  John'Jlurrill; and a fruitful������������������; theme they  found it. .  .-���������'     -  Meantime, John Burrill, who had fled  straight on down the gloomy length of  Mill avenue, found himself, and hie senses, together, close under the shadow of  one of the huge factories, and at the  river'6 very edge.  Here, breathless and bespattered, he  sat down upon a flat stone to vecover  himself, and review   the situation. ~  "Curse the man," he muttered. "I  would not have made such,a fool ''of''myself for a goldmine; but I couldn't have  helped' it for two,'' he added, after a  moment's reflection, "if- it's the man I  supposed it to be! But it can't be! It is  not." ; '/', ;'\.;(" '    '    '''  'j  He was   by   this   tithe   comparatively j  sober, and he arose to   his s feet,    finally,  feeling his courage   returning,   but   still  deep in thought.  "Hang the luck," he muttered,, kicking viciously at a loose stone. "If that's  the man I fear, then Jasper' Lamotte  would:.be glad to know him. Why!"  Starting suddenly erect, "D Gam find out,  and I will. I must, for my own safety,''  and John Burrill faced about and retoaced  his steps.  Cautiously this time, he > went over the  ground, heeding where he set his foot,  lest some misstep should betray his presence in Mill avenue still; more and more  cautiously as he neared the house from  which he had no lately fled.  Closer and closer he cx-ept, until at last  he was under the window the kitchen,  and here he "crouched, listening. He  heard the mingled- confusion of voioes,  then the firm tones of Clifford Heath,  clear above the rest. Heariug this, he  moved quickly'away, for Ke was in instant danger of detection, should the door  open suddenly, as it might at , any moment.  He crossed the street and standing  under the shadow of a small tenement,  waited.  It was not long before the door opened,  and the light from within showed him  the tall form of Clifford Heath, clearly  outlined against the darknesss.  Out strode Heath, walking so rapidly,  that the not yet quite sober John Burrill found himself compelled to exercise  eare, and expend some breath, in keeping  him within sight.  On and on, went the pursued and the  pursuer, and presently, out* of the darkness, came a third form, gliding shadowlike ; as if every step of the way were too  familiar to render caution necessary; this  third form drew nearer and nearer to  Busrill, who, all unconsicous of its  proximity, labored on after Doctor Heath.  Straight to his own cottage went the  doubly shadowed young physiolan; he  opened the door with a latch key, and tha  followers lost him in the darkness of ���������le  unlighfced vestibule. Presently, however,  a light was seen to glimmer through the  partially olosed blinds, and then John  Burrill crept oautiously n������_rer,   and te������l-  ��������� ��������� *"It is 'impossible,, sir ^utterly .impossible! and, pardon me for saying.,it,, most  absurd!i This matter, has been dragged  on too long already^ \k nd'"' on "such"' evidence I aitterly refuse to follow up the'  ' case".

Mr. Belknap laid down his hat, and  returned*, to his former position. '" Without  a trace of triumph or satisfaction in his  face or manner, he said:���������  "I am subject to your commands, certainly, Miss Wardour; but I beg that you  will not'misapprehend me."  '' Be easy on that point,'' ��������� interrupted  Miss Wardour, somewhat impatiently.  *'Now then, Mr. Belknapj I want a little  time to consider this matter,- and,to consult with my. aunt; also to see Mr. _ia-  mdttd.

Tlxis withdrawal of  the case has been so sudden, so xxnex-  pected, that I am not-prepared for a settlement of accounts." And Mr. Belknap  .turned slowly toward the door.  But the heiress stoppod him by a gesture.  "Stay a moment, sir," she said, ��������� and  the ominous gleam was,intensified into a  look of absolxxte hatred, for an instant.

I then withdraw from the field, unless called upon  as a witness, when, of course, I must do  my duty."  Miss Wardour stood for some moments  in silent thought, one foot tapping nervously the while, a sure sign of irritation  with her.

For weeks   he had been working  out this strange case, "guided by   the fact-  that the chloroform administered to Constance -was scientifically   meted out.    He  had commenced   a   system of shadowing''  the various'-medlcal mcmixiW���������, without'-  regard to; their, present-or previous standing.   ,Nothing could be 'found; in the past  or .present"of. any,to cause   them   to ..fall  under suspicion, until he came   -to'inve.-  tigate Doctor Heath.    Here   what did he  find?. First", that his antecedents-'���������could'be  traced back only so far * as '^ his   stay * in  ���������W���������:had,- extended.    Nothing ;tcould ��������� be,  found to'{prove, that his career   had,, been  above reproach, previous  to   his   sojourn  here; hence, according to -the   reasoning  of Mr. Belknap;'it was   fair ^to; suppose  that it had-not been.   " For," argued the  astute,private detective, "where there   is  secresy, ���������xex-e is;also room for suspicion."  And Constance felt a momentary^sinking  .of. the   heart,   when   she :������recalled,  ;the  'words'she had-_overheard,,, "as.., they, fell  r from the; lips,, of... Clifford-. Heath: " Here,    '  I am Clifford   Heath,'  fx'om - nowhere:"  \ Starting -with' a 'suspicion, the private de-* '  tective had made rapid headway.- -He had  ascertained   beyond a   doubt that Docter  Heath's expenses, taken all in   all',   were  in excess of his professional income-/' 'He  might have aipriyate income,   true;,,, but  this was not. proven, and   then there was  a .mystery that   the   accused had tried in  vain to hide from the eyes of the hunters.  ��������� Thex'e was a correspondence that was carried on with the  utmost   caution, letters  received that had.thrown,.him..;quite   off  ���������. his guard, that wex-e destroyed as soon as  read.  Finally and lastly, there was a bottle'broken'into-fragments  and thrown to  the dust heap; but,   without   doubt,   the  ''counterpart. of'  the'   one   found at   Miss  .Wardour's bedside on the morning of the  robbery; while, among some cast-off garments,   had, been   found   the. half of a :������������������  handkerchief,. that matched  px-ecisely the  one found.over the.face   of   the   heiress.  All these facts   Mr. Belknap had 'laid before her with elaborate explanations, and  "notes by the way," but instead of draw- .  ���������ing from her,.the expected indignant   demand for the instant arrest of tho accused  one, Miss   Wardour  had   listened coldly,  axid witlx marked   impatience,   and   had  finally declax-ed her decision not to  move  in the affair, nor   to   allow   any ��������� one   to  act in her behalf.  As Constance reviewed the arguments  of the detective, a now thought came to  her. Doctor Heath, all unconscious of the  danger menacing hiin, might in some  way, do himself an injury, and add to  the chain of circumstantial evidence that  was lengthening for his overthrow./ He  must be warned. ...  This was, a delicate task, and she hesitated a little over the manner' of accomplishing it.    ;  Finally, she seated herself once more  at her desk and wrote another letter, or  rather a note.  It contained only a few lines, and was  addressed to, "Mr. Raymond "Vandyck."  Meanwhile, private detective Belknap  was driving' slowly in the light buggy,  that had brought him to Wardour Place,  toward the x'esidence of Jasper Lamotte.

The text  is Luke xvi, ' 8, "The children of this  world are in'-iihetr generation, wiser than  the children'of light."        ' 1  * , That is 4 another   way   of saying that  Christians   are   not   so   skillful   in the  manipulation     of     spiritual   affairs   as  worldlings are skillful   in   the  management of temporalities.    I see   all around  . me pe'oplo who   -are   alert,   earnest, concentrated and skillful in monetary   ruat-  I ters, who in,the-affairs   of   tho   soul are  i laggards, inane, inert.     The   gr^at want  '.of the world is .more   common , sense in  i matters of religion.     If   one-half   'of the  1 skill   and     forcefulness ���������' employed     in  ] financial affairs   was   employed in   dis-  ' seminating the truth of Christ   and  try-  I Ing to make   the   world   better,   within  | ten years the last Juggernaut would fall,  | the last throne   of oppression   upset, tho  ! last iniquity   tumble,    and   the anthem  j that   was   chanted over   Bethlehem   on  ; Christmas night   would   bo   echoed and  ire-echoed   from-_11 nations and   kindred  'and people, "Glory to God in the highest  and- on earth peace, good will to men."  Some years ago, on a train . going   to-  .ward the southwest*, as the porter'*'-of tho  ' sleeping car������was making   up   the berths  at the'evening tide, I   saw a man   kneel  ! down to pray. Worldly people   looked on  \ as much   as   to    say,    "What   does this  mean?"    I suppose the most of tbe. peo-  i pie in the car thought that the man was  J either insane or that he   was   a   fanatic,  [but he disturbed no one when he   arose.  [In after conversation with   him   I found  out that he was a   member   of a church  ! in a northern city, that he was  a seafaring man and that he was on his   way to  j New Orleans to take command   of a vessel.     I   thought    then, as I think   now,  that ten such men���������men with such courage for God as that man   had���������ten   such  men   would    bring    the   whole   city   to  Christ; 1,000 such men would bring this  whole land to God;  10,000 such   men, in  a short time,   would    bring   the   whole  earth into the kingdom   of Jesus.     That  he was   succesnf>������l   in   worldly  affairs I  found   out.    That   he   was   skillful   in  spiritual affairs you are well   persuaded.  If men had the courage,   the   pluck, tho  alertness, the acumen, the   industry, the  common   sense    in    mutters   of the soul  that they have in matters   of the  world,  this would bo a   very    different   kind of  fearth in which to live.  Common Sense Lacking in Cliuroli Matters,  In the first place, my friends,,we want'  more common sense in the building   and  joonduct of chxxrches.    The   idea of adap-  tiveness   is   always    paramount   in any  ," other kind of structure, ^bankers meet  j,together," and*,M:������<By resolve dpjo.n putting  [up, v,a bank, *,''the bank is "s especially  [adapted to bariking.purposes; i������,'a manufacturing company pxxts --up 'a building,  |.it"is''io be /adapted .to maniifactxxring'1"  j purposes, but Jklaptiveness is nbip always  the question iS^the rearing of Ghurches.  'In "many of ;'our chxirrfios we want more  rllgh"t,"more-room, more ventilation, more  comfort. Vast sums of money are expended on ecclesiastical structure's, and  ������men sit down, in them, and you ask a  'man how he.'Wjffcs the church. Uc says*  ."I like-.it veig&vell, but I,:cailrt hear.';,  As though' a{s4tvl factory Tjjfcejje good for.  everything, but&makingr:',s_awls''!. The*  voice of the preacher dashes against 5*tho  pillars. Men sit down.xmdert-the shadows  of the Gothic arches.and- shiver and feel  they must be getting religion -.or something else, they feekso uncomfortable.  Oh, my friends, we want more com-*  mon sense in the v rearing ,of churches.  There is no excuse "for lack of light  'when tho heavens are full of it, no excuse for lack of fresh air when the world  ��������������������������� swims in it.-,. It' .ought to- be,..an expres-.  .sion not only* c^;,oiir spiritual *.,l)appiness,  but of our physical comfort*,'when we;  say: "How amiable are thy tabernacles,  6 Lord; God ' of hosts! A day in thy  court is better.thhn a thousand."  . Again, I remark we want more common sense in the obtaining of religious  hope. All men understand that in order  to succeed in wox-ldly directions they  must concentrate. They think on that  one object, on tihat one subject, until  their mind takes lire with the velocity of  their own thoxxghts. . All their acumon,  all their- strategy, -all their wisdom, all  their common, sense, they put in that  one direction, and' they succeed. But  how seldom it is true in the matter of  seeking after God. While no man expects  to accomplish anything for this world  without concentration and enthusiasm,  how many there are expecting after  awhile to get into the kingdom of God  without the use of any such means!

We  all want^p imitate him who talked with  farmers-bout the   man   who went forth  to.sow,--and   talked   with   the fishermen  jabbut the drawn net that brought in fish  -"of/all sorts,, and   talked   With   the,vine  dresser about tho   idler in   the vineyard,  ���������,_nd talked   with   those   newly affianced  about the   marriage   supper, and talked  with'the-man cramped in money matters  about the two debtors, and , talked   with  the woman about the yeast that leavened  the whole   lump,    and   talked   withthe  shepherd about'the   lost sheep.   .  ;  Oh, we mi-giit "gather even; the  stars of  -.the sky and twist them like forgetmenots  in the garland of-'.'Jesus !^We must bring  every thing to him���������-the;^ealth j:'of   language,.'^ the -"tenderness ipf /^enliment, the  -.delicacy of morning dew,   the   saffron of  floating cloud,,  the   tangled-  surf of the  itossing.sea,-; the bursting   thunder   guns  lot the storm's bombardinent.    _es, every  star must point down'to him, every heliotrope must breathe his praise, every drop  in the summer  shower' must   flash   his  glory, all the tree branches of   the forpst  iaust thrum   their   musio- in the grand  maroh   whichshall celebrate a world redeemed.-.'  .    :*   Blasted by Sin.  "Stand  as it is.  , ie������s and less���������when would yon attend to  tbe matter? "^Why, your'com'mon sense  would dictate':, "Immediately*--! will  attend to that matter, between 11 arjd 1|5  o'clock to-morrow, Monday morniirg'.^for  then I can surely accomplish it, but on  Tuesday I may not, and on Wednesday  there is less prospect,and less .and less.  I will attend to it to-morrow." Now, let  us bring our common sense in this matter of religion. Here are the hopes of  the gospel. We may get them now. Tomorrow we may get^ them, and we may  no:. Next day we may and we may not,  ihe prospect less and less and less'and  less, the only sure time now���������now. I  would not talk.to you in this way if I  did not know that Christ was able to  save1 all the people. I would not eo into  a hospital and tear off the - bandages  from the wounds if I had no balm to  apply. I would not have the face to tell*  a man he'is a sinner unless I h'ad^atjbhe  pame time the authority for saying he  may be saved.  A.:Divine Raphael.  Suppose in "Venice there is a Raphael,  a faded picture, great'in its time, bearing some marks of its greatness. History  describes that picture. Id is nearly faded  away. _ou say, "Oh, what a pity - chat  so wonderful a picture by Raphael should  be nearly defaced 1" After awhile a man  comes up, very unskillful in art,-and he  proposes to retouch it. You say  off! I would rather have it just  You will only- make * it worse." After  awhile there comes, an artist who is the  equal of Raphael. He says, "I will retouch that picture and brina out all its  original power." You have'full confidence in his ability. He, touches it, here  and there. Feature after feature "comes  forth, and ' when ho is done with the  picture'it is complete in all its original  power.' ' '      -  *  ��������� ' - "   '  Now, God impresses,his,'image0 on .our  rac8, ,but that ��������� image has been defaced  for" hundreds 'and'for thousands bf'years,v  getting fainter, and fainter. .Here cdmes  up a divine Raphael.    I shall call  him a  -Jivine Raphael. 'He says, '"i"'can restore  that picture.",,. He'has all4power in-heaven and on earth. He is'the equal of the  one who made the picture, the equal of  the one .*who drew the image' of God in  cur soul. He touches this sin, and it is  gone; that transgression, and it is gone,  and all the defacement disappears, and  ��������� where sin abounded grace doth much  more abound." Will you have the defacement or will you have the restoration? I  am well persuaded that if I could by a  ftou6_ or heavenly'"pathos" in 'two" minutes  put befdVe-youwhat' has been done to  save your'soul,\there1 would-* be an emp-  tionai^tide overwhelming.'.;   ,"', ;*i.   ,,:'.  "Mammaj^-said a ' little',; chijlb?^ to"her  mother, when she was/being put to bed  at night;'-"mamma," what makes your  hand so-scarred* and twisted and unlike  l^th'er, people's hands?f "Well," said the  mother, ''my*, child, when you were  younger than you are now, years ago,'  one night after I had put you to bed I;  heard,a-cry, a shriek upstairs. 1 came  up and',ifound the bed was on fire, and  you were on'fire, and I took hold ofc,you  and I .tore off tho burning garments,^  .and^wjhile-l-'was -tearing them off and  trying, to ^get yoxi away I burned my  hand, and it has been scarred and twisted ever since, and hardly looks any more  like a hand: ��������� But I got that, my child,  in trying to save you."  O man, woman, I wish to-day I could  show you the burned hand of Christ���������  burned in plucking you out of the fire,  burned in snatching you away from the  flame.

There's Delifi-htful   lie lief in  One   or   Two  Dosrs off South American KhVurnatic- -  '���������      Cure.  * E1.' H. Norton, of Grimsby, -Ont.,' 'says: "I  tried homeopathic and other remedies and was  under medical attendance for 'irflammatory  rheumatism. None of them gave me any relief.  My leys and arms were useless. I' could do  .nothing for three weeks. I was confined to my  >>ecr and suffered agonies. I was advised to try  South American Riieuhiatic Cure.

What we do I think will depend  upon three faots���������three great facts:���������  The first fact, that sin has ruined us.  It has blasted body, mind and soul. We  want no Bible to prove that- we' are sinners.'. "Any man who.'-is hot-willing to  acknowledge himself an imperfeot and a  sinful being" is simply.-" fool and not to  be argued with. We.all feel that sin has  disorganized our entire*���������ature. \That "Is*-  one fact. ' A-pbther' fact is that Christ  came to reconstruct,- to restore, to revise,  to correct, to redeem. That is a second  fact. The third fact is that the only time  we are sure Christ will pardon us is the  present. Now, what is the common sense  thing for us to do in view of these three  facts? You will all agree with me���������to  "quit sin, take Christ, and take him now.  Suppose some business man in whose  skill you had perfect confidence should  tell you that to-morrow, Monday morning, between 11 and 12 o'clock,you could  by a certain financial transaction make  $5,000, but that on Tuesday perhaps you  might make it, but there would not be  any positiveness about it, and .on Wednesday there would not be "ted-much, and  Thursday   less,   Friday   less, and   so on  All Watches to Ae;ree.

'���������' "��������� '  . very unique and original is the scheme  advanced by Sighb'r ��������� -Marconi, a young  and illustrious inventor of the system of  wireless telegraphy. There is every'likelihood that in the future an individual  'Walking through" the^ streets:;of a largo  city will realize that-his watch is keeping the best of time���������that is, without  any. attention from himself, is being  synchronized and * forced' to. reoord the  'proper time with absolute accuracy. At  present a reliable clock 'in Washington  automatically synchronizes clocks, in  other cities, but this will riot , bo necessary in the light of this new invention,  to utilize wires of any description or to  depend upon a mechanism which can  only affect it through the medium of a  metallic conductor.  The new system of projecting ether.  waVcJs 'through-the airA to ' pointts eight  miles distant will really inclose' a large  city w^hih a magic circle. Those ��������� moving within it carrying watches designed  so that the inyjsible -waves. ,may affect  them" need 'ne'vef concern themselves  about the mainspring, hairspring", gear,  - wheels or lack of adjustment in any  part, because the rays proceeding from a  central source will govern their timepiece and keep it in perfect accord with  the original electric chronometer. Tha  office boy plodding to his temple of sorrow cannot excuse himself by saying  that the clock was slow. People hurrying to a train cannot set their watohes  ahead, but will have to hurry harder  than ever, and those departments of the  commercial world in which time plays  an importantt part will realize that it  passes for all alike, and the word  "late' may,under this new and valuable  training, be stricken from the English  language as useless and obsolete.���������Philadelphia Record. ,\  '^.-^-/^���������"���������ff  ���������>..'*  i>o-i>_������*-s  i  THE  PECULIARITIES  THIS  OF  WORD.
