I do not  care for them ono bit, except that they  give me the right to ask you for this."  I took her gloved hand and kissed it,  ^but she herself, turning her blushing  face up to mine,v offered me her lips.  When I left Prince's Gate I seemed  ��������� to tread ah- air. We had been among  the last. Frida and I had lingered ou  among the azaleas till Mrs. Fair-  holme's patience was fairly exhausted  and she came herself to end the tete-  a-tete. I think she saw enough in our  ���������conscious faces to comfort her with  the hope that the pains of her chaper-  ouage wero approaching their term,  and she heanily indorsed Frida's invitation  to come  to  lunch,   and   come  " -early.

The night was One. the air . soft,  -under the pale sky. for dawn was near  ���������at hand, and I stepped out gayly, with  ���������all the "buoyancy , of one with whom  the world went v.*ell.  I was brought up shortly and sharply  to the realities of life by running up  plump against my "shadow." The  man who had_ stuck to my heels so  pertiuaciouslyall the evening was still  on the watch.  But  he  was  not  lurking  in  the re  cesses  of a  house  porch.    I  met him  t'nee to face upon the pavement, and he  could not escnpe me.  "Look here, my tine fellow." I cried,  tackling him  little too far.    Take  or 1 shall give you  walk." '  Then 1 caught sight of hia face under  toad, and I myself turned into Knight?,  bridge, and walking eastward, half disposed to do the whole distance on foot.  But a hansom came up out of some-  where, a mews, or a side street, or  overtook me on the road, and tha  driver, after the custom of his class,  began at once to pester me with, -"Cab!  Cab, sir! Cab!" pulling up to my pace,  and sticking to me most pertinaciously.  At last, out' of sheer disgust, and to  end his importunity, I jumped into 'the  cab and gave toy address- in Clarges  street.  I had barely lighted, a cigar and  leaned back to ponder over the many  surprising and mainly pleasurable  events of the day. when I realized that  the cab was "taking the wrong direction. For some Strang.-; and incomprehensible reason, the driver had turned  round and was heading westward.  "Here,'hi, hi!"T shouted,' lifting, the  flap.   "Where are,you going?"   ',  ���������  "Wot's up?" answered the cabby Insolently, as he pulled up short. "Think -  I don't know my way about?    Stow  it, or"���������     - -  The alternative I never heard, for at  that moment two men jumped up on  the front tread of the cab and open-'  iur^ the doors threw themselves upon  me. Their weight alone* would have  sufficed to overpower me, to silence  me, and crush out all resistance. I  could do no more than give voice to  one, frantic yell for help, for now the  strong, ,pungent smell of chloroform  under my nostrils and the vain struggle I made with fast increasing torpor  told plainly that thej' had called in  another dread ally, and that I was absolutely helpless in-their hands.  /  &<f&  tfattrfbi   fats -/fuzz  Jl  m  M  14*471/  If two lovers spend four,,, hours together and the lover takes, or receives 200 kisses���������low'calculation-pan d each kiss lasts ten seconds, in  live years', time the. lover would have  365,000 kisses, and their lips'would  have been united for the space of  forty-two  days and six hours.

Saraband & Sons.  Captain Wood did not. respond very  cordially ' to - my proposal, which he  guessed was not serious. It is my settled conviction now that he would give,,  the earth to reconsider that hasty and'  mistaken reply. , .'   * '.,,.,  I shadowed him the evening of the  first day, now just 4S hours ago, foi-'  lowring him to the Hyde -park, to his'  club, to his house. ��������� In Hyde park only  one person spoke to Mr. ' Wood. I  'knew him by sight and name^ a half  American, -Jimmy Lawford,' having  crossed with him once in the same"  Cuuarder and taken a hand in . the  same game",of \poker in the smoking  saloon. He passed then as, an ocean  drummer, although' some said he was  engaged in the, secret service of the  federal government. Now, I take it,  he just loafs around���������just, the sort of  chap to be in this crowd, against Wood.  I did not hear what he said to Wood,  but when leaving by the park gates I  noticed Jimmy in close talk with a  hansom cab man who had got off his  perch and was very' particular to hear  what Lawford said.  I only caught the last word or two:  "Any time to nigh c or tomorrow night.  You'll get the office; mind you're on  the quee vee."  I shadowed the captain all that  blessed night, to the opera, out west,  to several parties, and spoke to him,  or rather he spoke me, roughly, too,  at the door of a house in Prince's Gate,  when he .was seeing two ladies to their  carriage.

I took  them  according  to  directions,  and before they were gone there was  a great, improvement in my condition  but I was not fully cured.    I then got  another half dozen boxes,  and by the  time  the third of  _hem were emptied  I had not an ache or a prain left and  was  able  to     do   a good hard  day's  work without feeling any of the torture that had- i'or five years made my  life miserable: -.You may say for me  I that    I   do   not; think,  there  is   any  | medicine   in  the* world  can  equal Dr.  I Williams'   Pink   Pills   as ,a   cure     for  A Chicago Judge has .held that a  fourth 'wife has no ground for divorce  in the fact that1 her husband insists-  that the mother , of his .first wife  shall live with them.

When at last he scrambled up, leaping  nimbly'aside, to shin up a convenient  apple  tree,  Blinky,   the big Cotswold  ram,  stood at  the tree  foot,  shaking  his head up and down, evidently inviting Tommy to try conclusions again.  , Tommy had no mind for that.    Instead   he   sat    up    among   the   laden  boughs and thought harder than ever.  After a little he whistled joyfully, filled   his   hands   with    red   apples   and  climbed down to the lowest fork of the  tree.    Blinky was at him in a minute,  but  stopped  short  as  Tommy   tossed  him an apple.

Every day for the next fort-  . night Tommy gave Blinky apples, tufts  of sweet late grass, nubbins of corn  and pungent dashes of'salt and red oak  bark.

Fancy  his delight, muscular, masculine and  missionary, in laying out links and  teaching his parishioners the game.  Alison was one of his earliest and most  promising pupils.

In spite of doing all that Tommy  was the first to assist Gasket to his  feet. "I hope you're not hurt too bad.  sir," he said politely.'  Gasket was a sorry sight. His trousers were torn, his face scratched, the  eye upon which Blinky had landed his  last thump rapidly going out of business. The rest, hurrying up, could not  help laughing, Alison clearest, merriest  of them all. As Gasket caught the  sound "he said, backing away, "The  match is off." l r  It was all he couldisay. Tommy went  home with him, a faithful caddie in  spite of everything, but as he left the  rectory door he rubbed his hands and  softly hugged himself, repeating with  infinite gusto: "Yes. the match is off.

Chinese boy was brought into the  Peking hospital terribly injured by a  heavy log falling upon him. - The doctors, to save'his life,' cut off his leg.  The' mother came, apparently to help  to nurse the lad. The patient, however, almost immediately afterward died,  and expert examination showed, that  his mother had'given him arsenic. Her  reason, it is supposed, was to prevent  her son from tho disgrace of reaching'  the next world in a maimed conditio;).  This is a very strong point with the.  Chinese, who always pickle an amputated member to have it buried with  them when they ' eventually'die. 'In  this instance*, the family being poor,  and a whole leg being difficult to pickle,  tho simpler course was taken of poisoning tiie boy. so that he and his leg  might go together.  BnhicH and  Monkeys.  iL"frequent action, with babies is, to  turn the soles of the feet sideways, opposite to one another, while the legs  remain straight. Just, this attitude  w*ould be assumed by* a monkey when  climbing a tree or walking on a branch  in order to grasp the,stem with its hind  legs. ��������� ,_  . The inherited effects of thus grasping,  .tree trtinksr or limbs with the' hind  hands are,of ten very marked in young  babies. The bow' legs, -which are a  feature of infancy and 0 matter of  some anxiety to mothers, are no more  than the relics of the tree climbing  stage, and the mother need not be  frightened about this .character; any  normaHy healthy 'baby will grow out  of it soon enough.  Then, if a 3*oung baby be held so that  its feet touch the ground,' one may see  that the feet are not put flat to the surface. Instead, the outer portions of the  feet rest on the ground,,while the soles  of the feet are more or less opposed to  one another: they, have the bough  grasping   attitude.

President McKinley"used to tell with  a good deal of amusement a story  which related to his early days in the  law. On the way to and from his office  he was accustomed to pass a'butcher's  shop and for a long time was puzzled  by a certain notice which he saw  there.  In the morning he would read. "Good  pork sausages, 20 cents." On his return in the evening he would sometimes find those sausages still 20 cents  a pound, but more often the notice  ���������was changed, and the sign read, "Fine  pork sausages, 12"���������or sometimes 10���������  "cents."  The matter, he said, used to worry  him. Sausages were not of so perishable a nature that they would not keep  till the next day, and he could not understand it. So one evening he stopped at the shop, made some casual remark and then inquired the price of  sausages.  "Ten cents," said the shopkeeper.  "But." replied Mr. McKinley, "they  were 20 cents this mornina:."  Stilt  Races  In  Gascony,  Until very recently hardly any^ festivals took place in the villages of Gascony without stilt races.

In some respects these -provinces ��������� are better  suited than Ontario for the - development of tms industry. .Land-is generally cheaper,' pasturage surer, and  roots and other crops easily raised.  Two conditions are necessary in or-  der .to' develop this industry i'n Quebec and "the 'Eastern Provinces, especially the latter,���������an abundance of  'coarse grains, which by attention to"  agriculture cixn he profitably produc-,  ed, and the establishment of packing  companies, s(or"' ",the extension- 'of  those" already established), "'which  will fully meet the requirements of  tlie best markets, both' at home" arid  abroad.   \ .>  During the past year or two, I  have had ��������� frequent requests from  other provinces .for information 'regarding the, establishment of co-op7  erative packing factories,.- such as  have"recently, been put up ,at several  pointi in Ontario. The practical results of these��������� -co-operative movements has been demonstrated:.by the  .Danish farmers, who are becoming  more" and more interested in improving the quality and shape of the pig,  as lthrough .this medium alone they  have succeeded in placing their bacon  and poz*k in a foremost position,  both for quality and shapliness of  side, on thc JLondon market, while  the fact' of these co-operative factories being established, all over, Denmark, shows to what a success' they  have  been brought.  There  are  several     points   however  that  should  always  be  observed,    in  connection with  the establishment of  these pork packing  industiies  on the  co-operative plan.'    In< the first place,  they should be installed as nearly as  possible along the Danish lines, with  only   farmers   as     stockholders,     and  each one allowed to hold only a limited   amount  of stock.     No  speculators   should be  permitted  to  invest,in  the  company.     In  the  next place,   it  is  absolutely  necessary .that  the    individual   subscriber   shall   have   faith  in his own company.    The practice of  farmers  subscribing  stock     in     these  movements    and     then   selling   " their  Jiogs   to   the highest bidder,   often  to  firms  competing     against  their    own  company,   is  all  wrong,   and   entirely  di ire rent from, the  "modus  operandi"  in   Denmark.      The   success   of   Canadian   co-operative   factories   is   absolutely  regulated     and   controlled    by  the   loyalty  of   thc  farmer,   who has,  as  yet,   scarcely   realized  the importance   of     operating   along   truly    cooperative linos.     Still  another necessary     feature   ..is     that    all    proxies  should  be  concentrated  in   thc hands  of a '���������ovincil  of not more than seven,  preferably five of  the very best men  among; them,   practical   business' men,  .who a:e not likely to be loci away by  fads,   (-r   driven     from   wise   business  'principles by factious opposition'.  It   ist of   the   first   importance   that  behind   the 'business   management    of  the     co.-icern    ���������'  there       shall     be ' a  iho.rougfiiy practical  and- experienced  curer,   who   will   send   forward    only  uniform goods of the highest quality,  that-will when  tested  on  the British  market,   grade    .with     the:*best Irish,  and Danish bacon.     To  turn  but this  class   of   goods     particular  attention  must'be   given     to   tlie   sort   of  ;pig  grown, and the method of feeding the  same.     To produce tho highest grade  of   Wiltshire  sides,     the. packers    require a long,  deep,  smooth pig,  possessing a light    head      and shoulder,  and   evt<i  back,   not  too   broad,    but  well   covered  with  firm flesh,  not fat;  at  the came  time  he must  not be  a  razor hack.     The sides  from  ham  to  back   oi   shoulder   must   be   long   and  deep,   tiie  underline  straight  and free  from  fliibbiness;  the ham smooth and  tapering,   with * the  greatest   amount  of  flesh   on      the  outside.      The    pig  should   be   healthy,   vigorous   and    a  good feeder, weighing when ready for  market  from   17.*">   to  200  lbs.     It  is  generally     conceded    that  Yorkshires  produce  the  greatest  proportion    of  pigs of    this '   type,     with, the Tana-  worths next.  ��������� The thick, fat,  American or lard breeds are not wanted by  packers.     Pigs    should  be  fed    good.  wholesome      and     carefully    selected  food,���������skimmed milk, potatoes, roots,  green   food,   barley,   peas   &c.,-   in    a.  properly    balanced     ration;   without  any   undue   stuffing.      If   the  farmers  do- not intend   to'observe  these conditions,- they   ,had   better,  leave    the-  business  entirely  alone,   as  otherwise-  they are only  retarding'the efTorts, of  othei   Canadians  who are striving "to-  place our   bacon   , on   the  market   in  the    highest     possible     condition   in.  conm'etition   with  the  Irish  and-Dan���������  ish products.     A good deal of money r  -has been lost during the past year- or_  hogs',   tlie  English  market   not  justifying ^prices, paid in  Canada.   For instances, we have had. pigs for a whole-  year ranging in price from 5G.50 to  $7.50.-   Such   a  condition   of 'afiairs'  was' never  before known in the trade.  Tho farmers  have,   however,  received  the  benefit,    and     thc  packing   companies  have suffered,   largely becauso-  they have been climbing over one an-,  other    to   get     pigs   irrespective     of  cost, doing'no culling, and taking undesirable   breeds,   just'  as   quickly 'as  they  would  the  best.     This, sort    of  thing   will'/right .itself  in  course     of  time,  but    not    before    the packing  houses lose,a lot  of  money.  A co-operative , packing factory  should not be started until a capital  of at least $25,0,000 ' has been" subscribed, which will' be sufficient to  ensure a killing capacity of two to  'three thousand per week. Small  plants, arc objectionable because tho  reirigci:aS.ing system costs,very little  less, and- the management ,'and ��������� ex-,  penses are thc same, minimum .production .always being the- most expensive. Such a factory , cannot be  put up for less than $100,000 to  "$125,000. Farmers holding stock in  such a company should deliver their  hogs at the factory,' take an' advance  of sixty or -e[ghty* per cent.,-, have  them: slaughtered, cured, branded  with the -name -of -the .factory, sent"  forward and realized ^ on through the-'  niec!ium; r of a '��������� first' class "English  agency.    ��������� .

Ita Formation In the Military Method* of Ancient Greece.  v A phalanx in the military affairs of  Greece was a square battalion or body  of soldiers formed in ranks and tiles  compact and deep with their shields  ���������Joined and pikes crossing each other so  as to render it almost impossible to  break it- At first the phalanx consisted  of 4.000 men, but this number was afterward doubled,by Philip of Macedon,  and the double phalanx i_ hence often  called the Macedonian phalanx. Poly-  biua describes It thus;  "It was a square of plkemen, consisting of 1G In flank and 500 in front.  The soldiers stood so close together  that the pikes of the fifth rank extended three feet beyond the front. The  rest, whose ,pilces were not serviceable  owing to their distance from the front,  couched them upon the shoulders' of  : those,who stood before them and. so  I locking them together In ' file, pressed  forward to support and push on the  former rank, by which moans the as-  eault was rendered more violent and  Irresistible." The spears of those be-  hlud also stopped the missiles of the  enemy. Each man's pike was twenty-  three feet long. The word phalanx is  also used for any combination of people distinguished'for solidity and firmness. A grand phalanx consisted of  10.334 men.  WbMt   Hit  Him.  Some year* ago.  while a gentleman  was walking from St. .lames' park to,  Tail Mull on a bright afternoon in summer,  he suddenly  received a ' blow on  the shoulder which caused him to stum  rble,,atu! at the same'time he heard a  loud,   crackling   noise.

When tbe gentleman reached "home.  his shoulder was examined, but no in-  Jury could be found to siocouutfor the  pain In it.

BOWSER bad finished his  breakfast   and   lighted   his  cigar; but, to Mrs. Bowser's  surprise,- he still lingered instead of making his 'usual rush for the  corner and the S o'clock car.    Noting  her disturbed look, ho finally said:  "I have decided to give myself a holiday today. That is, I am going to stay  home and do a little work."  "Are you going to meddle with the  .water pipes or tbe gas meter?" she anxiously., queried.   ,  "No. I am,going to give our front  fence n coat of paint and slick up a lit-  ���������   A MAN CAltE ALONG DHrVIXG TWO HOGS.  tie for spring.'

I think a pea green color would'  harmonize with the front of the bouse,  don't you?" .  "'  "I wish you would let it go," pleaded ���������  . Mrs.'  Bowser  as ' she* vividly  recalled  '   two or three past experiences. "If you'll  " let me get a painter, I'll pay for it out  of my" pin' money."  "What in thunder is the matter with  .    you?v, shouted Mr.  Bowser as-he got  up.   "Is there going to  be an earthquake or a cyclone because-I paint the  ,   fence?  You are as. much excited as if I  -were going  to  take the. roof, off tho  bouse.   I shall paint. The color will be  pea green! If the heavens and the .earth  come together in consequence,  I shall  bold myself blameless." '      ,  Daring the next hour be purchased-]  his paint and brush and got into an --old;-;���������  suit of clothes and a short time later  ���������was at work. Nothing happened until  be had been painting for half an hour.  Then a man came aJong tbe street driving two hogs. One of the hogs seemed  to have made up bis mind to, go' for-  ���������ward and make the best of it. but the  other was in rebellions mood. He had  ���������no sooner come opposite Mr. Bowser  than he dashed for him and rolled him  over and then deliberately and: maliciously proceeded to rub hia side  against the painted fence.  "Why. I'll kill somebody for this!"  ���������exclaimed Mr. Bowser as lie struggled  to his* feet. "How dare you set-a. hog  on to me in this fashion?"  "Nobody   set   him   on,"   replied   the  owner.   "He was going along all right  till he saw you and probably took you  ' for another hog."  "Ob. he did! And maybe you did the  same? I'll now .proceed to lick you  ���������within an inch of your life! No living  man can set a hog on to me and insult  me afterward!"  - But there was no fight. The man  had a boil on his neck and only one  lung left, and he realized that he would  be handicapped in a scrap, and so be  made off. As the hog had also passed  on there was nothing for Mr. Bowser  to do but cool off. He had repaired bis  broken suspender, scraped tbe bristles  off tbe fresh paint and got to work  again, When a clerical looking man  came strolling along and baited to'say:  "I think this is the street, but 1 am  not sure of the number. Do you happen.to know if a family named Bowser  lives along here somewhere?"  "That happens to be my name." replied Mr. Bowser.  ���������*'Ah���������just'so. I have lately been called to the church around the corner,  and L wish to ask if you don't feel"���������  There was the paint plain to be seen  and smelled, and yet the clerical man  calmly backed .up to the fence and  leaned heavily against it. He would  have finished his sentence in good time  3f Mr. Bowser bad not grabbed bim by  the collar and lifted him off the fence  and spun iii in around and yelled:  "Holy smoke, but you don't know  any more than the blamed hog! No; I  don't feel, and 1 won't feel, and you  get out of this!"  Tbe clerical man didn't stop to argue  the matter, but gave Mr. Bowser one  concentrated look of reproach and hurried off after turpentine. A yard of the  J>  PMOJ&  One  of  thc  marvels   of  the  age   in  sensational show features is the per-  ilous feat known as ".Loop theLoop"  which will be performed at the Winnipeg Industrial exhibition July 21  to 25, this year. Diavolo, who docs  the trick, knows full well the danger  lie runs every time he performs it. Jn  Minneapolis, the second day- of the  Elks' fair, Diavolo forgot his usual  caution and was hui;led from the  track to the soft sawdust beneath, a  distance of over thirty 'feet.''Fortunately he escaped serious injury, and  will be in good condition,to appear  at Winnipeg's big fair. To the ordih- -  ary  observer, tiie   "Loop  the Loop"'  performance looks like- a man  head down on a bicycle track  fly on the ceiling.  The public has been surfeited with  bicycle riding" tricks of the ordinary  sort, and the Winnipeg Industrial'exhibition management claims that it  ha.scin DiaA-olo a feature that will be  perhaps one of thc biggest drawing-  cards at the fair this vear.

The cow bad escaped from  her stable, and tbe bulldog was after  her.   If <Uo hadn't overtaken  her and  tried to make, fast, to,one of her heels,  she would probably havo kept straight  on and taken her chances.*but that bite  swerved her across the-side walk and  into Bowser's.,fence, and she raked it  the whole length and  left enough of*  her winter coat behind to stuff a pillow.   There was no crowbar handy-to  brain tbe bulldog.'and-Mr. Bowser had  to take it,out in jumping up and down  and swearing., It- took him some time  to cool off and get to work again, and  then came the old clo'' man. " He "was  distinctly informed 'iii answer to  his  first yell that there were no wornout  garments awaiting him. but he continued his Inquiries and finally took a rest  .on it    Hovw.as rubbing the pea green  into'his biick'-iii.4ho most liberal manner when Mr. Bowser took notice, and  (,a   minute', later  there   was   a   mixup.  Hats and caps and feet and legs got  tangled iu the utmost confusion,  and  .when the separation came the old clo'  -fman made off down the street, with  his coat torn up the back, and left Mr.  Bowser panting. '      ���������-   .  .  c "By John, but the next critter that  rubs against this fence dies'" on' the  spot!" he exclaimed as he picked up  his brush once more and got to work."  Then ^the,family cat came out to  cheer and encourage "him by ber presence, and he bad almost forgiven hu-'  manity when thc crisis came. Four  men came up the street with a" dog  trotting along ahead of them. It. was  only to bo expected lhat the dog avould  see the Bowser' cat and pitch into her  and that the four men would sick him  on. Bowser.had heard and seen, and  his gorge rose.F He rose with his gorge.  He sailed into that quartet like a brick  house falling on a rabbit, but be was  no Roman gladiator. _ ive minutes after the first fight opened he was a lic_r  ed man. and the men and the dog wer?  Marching on. Alarmed by the row. Mrs.  Bowser went out to find the spring  painter sitting up with his back to the  inside of the fence and a look of wonderment on his face.  "Wha-what's happened?" be askod  her after looking at her in a puzzled  way.  "You've  got  through   with   tbe  pea  green!" sho quietly replied.  "W-wherc's that _og?"  "Gone up the street."  "And them fellers?"  '���������Gone after him."  "And���������and"���������      ' ',',','!'  "And between you all you have rubbed the paint off the fence, tipped orer  the bucket and had a fight, in which  you got the worst of it. Come, Mr.  Bowser, come." .  And she assisted him to rise and  gently led him into the house for large  and liberal repairs. M. QUAD.  Dangeron-ly   Ilrip-ht.

Gilbert, manager of the  poultry   department     of   the   Central  Experimental     Farm,      recently    addressed ��������� the.'Agricultural  Committee  oil tho'work of his department.     Ho  urged   the  necessity   -.to   farmers    of  procuring     tho   breads     of     chickens  which   will  produce  good   winter layers and rapid  flesh formers.       These  were the Barred Plymouth Rock, thc  White    Wyandotte    and -Buff Orpingtons.    ITo.,also. .emphasized thc necessity   of  taking ' care, of1 ��������� the  chickens  properly,     particularly     during     the  first'five weeks of th-inexislence, and  until   they reach'--the salable  age    of.  three or three and. a half months.   If  the market requfred-it/'at the age of  three months   the  chickens  could    be  put  into  crates and fed  on a ration  of  finely  ground  oats and skimmilk.  Tie advised farmers, to raise the proper quality of chicken's, in large numbers,   so  as    to ' meet the great demand of both the home and   foreign  markets.        Mr.-Gould,   M.P.,    West  Ontario,   doubted   the  wisdom   of the-  chicken  fattening     stations,   .as 7 ������������������tho  English market did not call'for������������������very'  fat birds. '  Young: Stock;- ...  - Most.-farmers find their stock increasing in number at this season  with the coming of calves, , lambs,  pigs and chickens. If pains have  been taken to breed from good stock,  each one should mean additional income to the farmer or more value to  his-personal property.'They shoul-d,'  therefore, be welcomed on arrival,  properly cared for and hospitably  treated. Do not neglect to meet  them until they have shivered with  the cold a few hours or grown hungry, and do not fail to supply good  food in proper amounts at regular intervals. That is the way welcome  visitors should be received in this  country.���������American  Cultivator.

The linen industries, -poultry v culture   and     keeping,  and the work, of  thc  various ��������� technical schools for women, which are under the special patronage of the Princess      of      Wales,   also  occupy much  space  in   most  numbers.    The whole  tone of the magazine is one of study  and seriousness, even the jokes    and  witticisms   which   adorn  its   columns  occasionally arc solemn, and have an  agricultural' flavor.  The students at the agricultural  colleges ,come from-'all grades .and  ranks of society, and the education,  provided-for them is both thorough  and varied. All about flower, - fruit  and vegetable .growing", butter and  cheese making, mushroom, bee and  tomato culture they learn, .and they  must be well up in both theory - dnd  practice .before they aro entitled'to  the college certificate. A large majority of the graduates devote themselves to specialties of various kinds,  it is said, and the masciline farmers of England are rapidly learning  to respect both their learning" and  prowess, .and to regard them as formidable rivals.  Tho cost " of taking a thorough  course at one of these agricultural  colleges, with board or "residence,"  ranges from ������70 and upward for  'each year, and the length of - time  spent-in study varies-'accord ing , to  the ..quickness and capabilities of the  students themselves: as well as-of'.the  number and -intricacies of; ;the  number and the. intricacies' of-the  branches undertaken.

Xta   Earliest   JMcitniupr   Win   ������n    Inclosed   Pleaxore  Ground.  ' The earliest meaning of the. word  paradise appears to have been n walled  in pleasure ground. In the Hebrew it  was *'perdes," in the Persian "fordus,"  and from "one or other of those the  Greeks appear to' havo derived the  word "paradcisos," from which we get  our own .word. We also know that the  ���������'ancient monarcha of Chaldea and Assyria and also of Egyptconstructedvasf  lnelosures of forest land(,for the preservation of wild animals kept for hunting purposes, and these were also call-  ' ed " paradises. Thus, ��������� the historical  "meaning of the word comes to this: A  space protected from all incursion from'  the .outer world, in which those who  were privileged'to enter were able to  indulge in such pleasures as pleased  their fancy. s  It is easy to see the translation from  tho material to the spiritual meaning,  paradise in the latter sense meaning  the place of the elect or chosen.' This  is strikingly borne out by the fact that  the favorite battle-cry of the Moslems,  whose'firm belief it is that those "who  die fighting go straight to heaven, was  always "Fight! Fight! Paradise! Paradise!" And the strong probability is  that they got the word from the Persian campaigns of the eighth ceutui-y.  The use of the "word, hi its present form  in the New Testament is of Greek  origin, and its description as applied  to tbe garden of Eden is probably of  Hebrew origin, dating from tbo period  of tbe captivity.  WHAT MOVED  THE   DOG?  A   Remarkable   Story   of   Canine   In-,  telllpj-ence  and  Affection.  , Among the tales told of the intelligence and affection of -our canine  friends by Mrs. Sarah K. Bolton in her  book, ."Our Devoted Friend, the Dog,"  is tbe story of Dan, a deerhound owned  by Mr. L. C: Meaehamp of. Homer, La.  Mr. Meaehamp was one day going on  a squirrel hunt and, not wishing Dan  to accompany him, tied the dog to a  post by a rope. Dan whined and begged, but finding his master obdurate he  at last lay down quietly before his  kennel.  It was growing dusk and time for  the hunter to return, when Mrs. Meaehamp was suddenly disturbed by the  whining and barking of the dog. who  had been quiet all day up to that time.  She spoke to the dog. but instead of  being pacified at this attention be redoubled his exertions and broke the  rope which held him. Then he bounded  away,' over the fence and into the  woods.  He was gone perhaps half an hour  when he came running back, panting  and almost breathless, with his master's hat in his mouth.  Mrs. Meaehamp became at once  alarmed, and, calling her eon, they set  off to find the missing man, Dan all  the time bounding ahead and leading  the way. At length tbey came upon  Mr. Meaehamp lying helpless in the  woods, where he had fallen into a little  ditch and broken his leg.  The accident happened, as nearly as  could be reckoned, at the moment  when the dog began to show his uneasiness. That he should have bad  knowledge of the accident seems incredible, but his master (Irmly be-  lievea'tbat be did kuow it and that it  was because he knew It that be was so  an>:ions tn.tret ������������������*���������������������������-   ������������������ '    <  NOTICE.

Dandruff  is caused by a germ which saps the hairn  vitality. Vaseline and oils are of no benefit  to the hair, as dandruff germs thrive ia  them, as well as in all grease. To cure dandruff, which is preceded by, and a sure indication of, falling hair, it is necessary that  the dandruff germ be eradicated.
