The deputation, after a i  few fuither questions, withdrew to  make their report.

A request that a thirty  days  notice clau:-e  be inserted in  the contract was met by the assurance  that any individual desiring  to leave, could.do so just as formerly, at a moments notice, by applying to the overman,   the contract  was simply to prevent a withdrawal  in  a body, entailing the closing of  the mines.

I-le    had  none.     She  wondered  whether     this  ��������� silence was a good or bad sign.    As  - she 'was     standing  thinking     about  this   in     the     vestibule,   a /^perplexed  ' look upon her face, some men    from  a  florist's   passed   her   with   gigantic  laurel     and     myrtle  trees,   carrying  them     to     the   salon,   the   door     of  which stood wide open.  . In the  background hung  a     bright  '   purple  curtain,   which  the  upholsterer  was  still     arranging,   and     upon  the improvised stage stood a gentleman  with a white board,  talking to  the landlord.

"From  papa," said Hortense, and put it  back. She" hastily ran though mademoiselle's , scrawling "French, handwriting. "The old people are the  same as ever; they.play-chess; and  thc horses are well," she said, tak-  , ing a scissors -and beginning to  the letter, 'without reading it,  thousand pieces,  Lucie gazed tthoughtfully out  the beautiful Platz, lighted up with  ,the glow' of the setting sun. , The  numerous ' statues on tho Hofkirche  ,flcemed _ dipped in red gold.

'A tele:-ram for Fraulein Wa.lter!"  cried .the waiter, whose knock had  not been heard, and he handed Lucie  thc small folded paper, lighted a candle,  and disappeared.  "For   ui-*!"     said     the   girl,   in     a  Liicie scarcely'know herself how she  got to the    station and in the railway  carriage, _   or     how     the night  passed,  and the .three hours of wait-  ' ing  at  the' little ^station,   where  thc  'branch line from her home joined the  main  line.     'She      ihad"      only      one  'thought,  one bitter regret;     she had  one  picture   before  her  all  the  time,  and that was Mathilda's eyes full of  tears with longing  to  see thc young-  sister who  had forgotten her in her  ���������gay- life away from- home.  When at last the train came to the  station the day was beginning to  ,dawn. She-shivered as she stepped  into tho empty compartment. As it  grew liglHer she looked out into the  misty June morning. She was familiar with the region through .which  she was going; the cloud-covered  mountains over yonder, thc outlying  spurs of the Hart- "Mountrdns, and  the villages still sleeping quietly.  The clouds m tlie cast became lighter by degrees, but the sun could not  dissipate them, and finally it began  to rain���������a light fine rain that threw  a thick grey veil over the entire region. At the little stations where  the train stopped peasant women  got in wilh their market-baskets,  here and there some gentlemen also  going to the market-town. For a  moment there would be some confusion between umbrellas and market-baskets, and there would be  quiet again. At the station of the  town there was moie of a crowd and  a longerv,delay. She listened as if. in  a dream to the bustle of the men  and the pattering of the rain as it  fell on  the roofs of the cars.  Suddenly she sprung up and let  down the window. Through the  crowd a child was pushing its way;  it was a boy of about twelve, whose  th'n little face beneath his light-blue  cap had a peculiarly sad, wistful expression.  "Conrad,"     cried    the  girl,  rad!"  . The-, boy paused  and  over.   "Get  in,"   said     Lucie,  you going home?"  He had taken off his cap and bowed, but at the same time showed  his ticket. -  "I must go third-class." he said.  "Wait," she cried, getting out; and  the next minute they wero sitting opposite eacli other in au empty third-  class compartment, and the train was  beginning to move slowly on.  For a few moments they sat perfectly still; neither spoke a word.  The little fellow, with his pale face,  and eyes tha.t seemed to ask what  this incomprehensible bitter blow  that had come to him meant, kept  looking out of the window. Lucie  could not speak for tears, as she saw-  before her the child whose mother  had been taken from him so early.  "Father wrote yesterday," he began at last; "but Frau Muller did  not tell me till to-day, nor let mc  go. I suppose he wrote-to you too,  aunt?"  The little boy pressed his lips  tightly together to keep back, hi.  tea rs.  Lucie nodded, and then she sat by  him and put her arm round him, and  began to cry bitterly:  "The last time I was at home,"  said tiie boy, receiving her caresses  with indifference, "on Sunday���������mother tliought you    were    coming,       and.  "Con-  came  "Are  had  cakes  baked.  She felt sure  because sho had written you  ill.     Why  didn't you  come,   aunt?"  She   wept  still  more  bitterly;     the  child's reproach was like a dagger.  i  "She-      was     not  angry,"   said  the  boy,  good-naturedly,, "only sorry'."'  Lucie took down her handkerchief  and gazed at the polished wood-work  of the railway carriage, and then  at the rain  outside. , -  "She is,to be buried to-morrow-,"  continued' the boy. "Herr jMuilor has  given me a holiday. 3 may stay a,  v\eek Kith father, because Lam 'the'  eldest,'f he added, with some pride.  "There is Schulzenskamp; wo will  soon be there!" With the same sad  look in his childish eyes, he asked:  "Are you going .to stay Jwith us;  aunt?" . ���������  She nodded hastily, and smoothed  back her hair from her tear-stained  face.  -    "Is  it true?"  "Yes,  my boy."  There was not a soul in -the ( tiny  station at the edge of tlie forest.  They stood on th'c< gravel road in  front of the little waiting-room, and  looked at the weather.  "We shall have to< walk," said the  tboy. "Father does not know you are  coming, and I���������always walk.'' .  ' - They followed the wood road���������the  old familiar path.

In the'la-rge hall, adorned with stags'  horns, which ' in summer was also  used as a dining-room, all was still  as death, 'only the cuckoo clock ticked on the' wall. The door of her  ,brother-in-law's room was open, and  out "of it- came a woman's voice,  which Lucie did not-know, "comforting and remonstrating'with "him.  "For -the children's " sake, cousin,  thc poor little things! .Who1 would  have thought this would happen so  soon?

"George!" she said,  and supported  herself by thc table; she looked ready  to drop, and her whiuTlips could not  frame another 'word.  He looked up .and raised himself.  ."You come too late, Lucie!"  She     stood ���������   perfectly    still,     with  clasped  hands.    .A  small   stout   woman   of   about  fifty,   ^ith   her     hair  brushed stiilly down at the sides     of  ��������� her-    face,   a    stub-nose,     and  hard,  light  eyes,     wearing  a    black  apron  over her lilac calico dress, and -black  ribbons in her cap, ^and a. black handkerchief round her neck,  stepped    up  to her.  "Ali! you must be the sister that  the poor woman, so longed for. Ah,  yes! it is very hard when one comes  and .finds all is over. But you c arc  wet-as can be. Have you any dry  things with you? Wait a moment;  I will get you some hot coffee. One  must eat and'drink even at such  times."  She took off the girl's hat and  cloak, and went out with them. The  Oberforster walked up and .down  the room; he trod heavily, and as if  tired,  and was bent over. r  Lucie thought he looked years  older.

If the tree is small in girth,  he sometimes uses a vine, passing it  around the tree and holding on to it as.  he ascends. The most common way,  however, is to ascend by means of  notches cut into the tree or bark about  ono and a half inches deep and about  three feet apart. Having fixed upon  the side he intends ascending,* the  climber cuts a notch. with his tomahawk about the height of his waist and  another on. a level with his head, but a  little to the, right or left of "the" lower  notch, as the case may Vbe/'. These  notches arc made by. a few-taps of the'  hatchet, . first horizontally and then  down at an agle of forty-five degrees.  Having cut th^.two lower ones, the  ascent is mada-by, standing on the ball  of the foot, with, the great toe in the  notch, while the climber cuts a fresh  notch level with his head, and so on  until the lower branches are gained.  Often the gum trees run eighty feet  from the ground up to the lowest limb,  tho trunk of the tree, being perfectly  smooth. These notches are out with  great regularity, for, measured on a  fallen tree, the distance between them  seldom varies half an inch. In reas-  cending a tree fresh cuts are made for  every fresh ascent.

He translated the* order  into man talk, for the benefit ot the obsequious waiter and then asked with  the air of one who was used to being  made a confidant of:  '       "What's tho trouble?

'  , '  .  "And the other fellow," he laughed,  , "the one who shares with me the proud  distinction?" ' *,  "He's the trouble!" came the answer  ���������.    in a pathetic voice. ��������� Then with sudden  vivacity:   ,"Did  you ' aver  notice  that  -there's something about the movements  < of the average waiter that reminds one  of Spencerian(Writing?

"A  .person's feelings change-from year to  year!" ��������� * '  "From-, season to season would' seem  to me a more accurate statement,", put  in her companion, with a suave smile.  "unless,    indeed,   my   experience    has  ��������� been unusual."  "Yon   do  .understand."   she ' smiled.  "You   certainly   do!

Lorrimer  drained his cup and set it down,deliberately   before "he   replied.    Then' he  said:    -  "Don't jrou think you would better  begin at tlie beginning? You're a trifle  incoherent, you know."  "That's just it!  There wasn't any beginning!   And evidently he thinks that  .   ;there ha-sn't been any end.   It was all  , so elusive and intangible and  so sad!  He left so much to the imagination.   I  think that was a  part of his fas'cina-  . tion for nie.  There was a look in his  eyes at times  that  wrung  my  heart,  and from pity I drifted by degrees into  something more.  "When we parted, I knew that we  were sworn to an eternal friendship-  sort of ashes of roses affair, you know  ���������and in my own heart I was fully determined nevov to marry. I was going  to be one of those sweet, sad. strong  women that you read about."  She screwed her forehead into a knot  and looked at him deprecntingly,  "What happened?" he inquired, in a  sympathetic tone. "You, haven't married, it is true, but 1 have never connected you in my thoughts with a hid-  deu sorrow."  The occupants of an adjoining table  rose to go. and her attention was engrossed for. a moment by a love of a  gown. Then she came back to Lorrimer and her story. .  "I suppose that what happened was  just���������other men!" she said ruefully.  "The spirit was willing, but the flesh  was weak."  "What in the name of goodness is  troubling you then?" asked Lorrimer,  thoroughly mystified.  "Why, I had a note from him this  morning! He will be in town next  Wednesday.    His wife is dead!"  She composed her face to an expression of perfect propriety before making  this announcement, though there was a  faint twitching of her lips.  "Ab-h-h! 1 see. You fear that he is  coining to clahn bis pound of flesh, and  you're not of the same mind that you  were when it was promised."  She nodded.  "It's not quite nice of me to tell you,  but  we're   very   old  friends,  and   I'm  really troubled.   He's such a nice  fellow���������just a thoroughgoing'idealist, and  I know he thinks of me as cherishing  his memory, and of course 1 do'.'* she  _*_ded quickly,   "only not  in  just' t_v  Y*-ay'he,thinks. , He's had so much sadness'in 1-Xs life that 1-cannot bear to  giv_ him pain.

Thore was  a flutter of departing guests' all about  them, and they ��������� rose and made their  way homeward.  At precisely 5 o'clock the next day  Miss Barry was greeting Mr. Grantham  with, an expression in her dark eyes  which was not well planned, if indeed  it was calculated .to reconcile him to  his fate.       ,  , "iou've grown; actually grown, smc������  ' we last met,"  he said, his handsome,  serious face lighting up with pleasure  and with a ring of boyish pleasure in'  his voice which suddenly made her feel  "very world worn,' very callous aud very  , unworthy.    "Tell me about yourself���������  all that you've been doing and thinU*"-  in'g," he went o"n" cordially, but with no ,  ,trace of .embarrassment, "and them I'll  retaliate in kind."   '\    '. ���������    ��������� '  "I've simply been growing' worldly  and horrid, and Fin, not at all the, sort  of- person-that I. was five years ago.  I've given up my ideals, those exquisite  chimeras which seemed so near to ?us  that summer. You see New York, isn't-  the proper' habitat for the soul?'  Grantham's'deep eyes were bent upon her, half, in doubt.  "I don't think you are quite fair to1  yourself," he began gently, and the  look in his eyes made her wonder nervously how much longer.it would be'bo-  fore Lorrimer appeared.  As if, in response to her thought he  was announced at that moment, and  the three were soon chatting pleasant-  'ly. If Mr. Grantham felt any annoyance at the presence of a third "-party,  there was no trace of it iu. his manner.  ���������His eyes rested upon Miss Barry with a  look,which struck Lorrimer as being of  the' sort that ono gives to an admired  but utterly -unattainable object; he  looked' at ber as' one might "look at  some beautiful ideal ,to .which he had  ceased,to aspire.  He also noticed that Miss Barry, with,  feminine inconsistency, had evidently  repented of her determination to "look  like a frump." There was something  extremely up to date in the way that  the dull pink broadcloth swirled around  her'slender figure, and her. dark hair  seemed to shine and ripple more exquisitely than usual. Lorrimer decided  to seize the first opportunity that presented to hum:   ,  And, oh, I am glad that moment sad  Was cheered by sight of nie!  ���������   It was not until Mr. Grantham rose  to'go that he said: ���������  "You know perhaps of the death of  my twin sister,1, Mrs.* Raymond? She  died in Rome six months ago. It was a  terrible shock to Mrs. Grantham."  There was a queer little inarticulate  exclamation which seemed tol,como  from Miss Barry's lips, while a shade  of astonishment flashed across Lorri-  nicr's face. The speaker looked from  one to the other iu a puzzled way and  then continued:   '  "Mrs. Grantham, was with her and  will return on the Etruria next week.  I want you to meet her. Miss Barry,  and see our boys." His face was shining with pride. "I know you will lova  them."  Miss Barry murmured the usual commonplaces and then added maliciously,  with a defiant look straight at Lorrimer:  "I was about to ask for Mrs. Grantham when Mr. Lorrimer joined us. I  hope she is very well?"  Left aiono. she and Lorrimer looked  at each othrr in a  nonplused manner*  for a moment.   Then they both burst  into peals of laughter.  She finally crossed the room and  made a search in the small desk which  stood in tho alcove and came back,  with her eyes bent upon the note in her  hand. Sitting down beside Lorrimer,  she' held it out to him, looking rather  foolish.  "It doesn't say that his wife is dead,  but -wouldn't you think so from the  wording and���������and from the other circumstances?"   she  pleaded.    Then  de-  walk a short distance through the!  field to get a particularly attractive'  view. Around this field was a high (  fence with no opening but a narrow ;  stile.

The reason for this un-  evenhess lies in the way one "sits. You  get into a comfortable chair at your  desli, and at once you rest your right  elbow on the arm of your chair or your  desk, thus throwing ono shoulder higher than the other. This is especially  the case-where one writes a great deal.  When you notice that one shoulder is  higher'than the'other, the thing to do  is to change your way of sitting at your  desk. Two simple exercises will be  beneficial. The arm of the lower shoulder should be extended upward, the  hand grasping a dumbbell. That of the  higher shoulder should be lowered and  made to support a heavy weight.  voutly:  "Goodness!    I'm  glad   I  wore  the pink broadcloth!"

There's an old superstition that a  howling dog in front of tho house of  an ill person portends death. One-  prominent physician belioyes absolutely in it. This physician has a wonderfully acute sense of smell. Frequently, he says, he can foretell the coming  of death within forty-eight hours of a  patient's demise. Within two days of  death, he says, a peculiar earthy odor  becomes noticeable about a person  about to die. He tells of one case  where he became aware of the peculiar odor whilo talking to an apparently healthy man. That night tho  man dropped dead of heart disease.  Thc physician is far from attributing  the peculiar manifestation to other  than physiological reasons. His own  sense of smell is abnormally acute.-  i/  - i ,  .-    *  I r  - ,* v$  r          A  1     *-^  1  -*v  ,(  1  \.'"-  "'        *\  tr  .        **-  ������������������7  '   'd  -  '    S-"  ���������J1  J   r  *.   1-  .  t  ''/'  - -  t 1. -  *T1    C  .^  <-v_v  -n    i f  V ������������������'���������-  \  V  ���������*<;���������  Y-  "***- "  *���������"���������"������  ,,���������1?  ��������� C.

It had" become a byword in the college town long before Gregson reached  '   his junior year.   -There"had been one  little love affair after another, none of  them very serious so far as Greason  '  was concerned,  but with just enough  sentiment and' a few  heartaches ar.d  ,     tears on th.e part of the young women  to ,'leave memories like those of deli-  ,,'eatery crushed rose leaves.  First  there   had   been , the   demure  < young    daughter    of    Professor    De-  schelle,   who   was   suddenly   and   not  unwisely' shipped off to Berlin  for a  year's finishing.    Then Miss Bowdbin.  daughter  of  a   St.   Louis  millionaire.-  came  to   nurse   her   brother   through  pneumonia and after meeting Gregson  remained    so ��������� long   that   her   father  wrote   inquiring'  whether   they   now  quarantined     nurses     in * pneumonia  cases.   The next little affair was more  serious so far as the elder Gregson's  ' - purse was concerned, and some of the.  .college men,are wondering to this day  how. much   Tottie   Vaughn   of   "The  Dazzler" company named as the price  of, -withdrawing her suit.  '     After three years Gregson'had what  his friends irreverently termed "a rep"  as.a juggler with feminine hearts.  The  newest girl in town was quite gcn'e-ral-  ' ly referred to at the end of a week or  so* as   "Gregson's   latest,"   and   hostesses remarked to their young guests:  "Now,, do look out for Harry Gregson,  -' my dear.    He is such a .charming fellow, but an incorrigible,' absolutely, unprincipled flirt."  ". Perhaps these same married women  and chaperons who shook their heads  over him and then' smiled understood  .and sympathized with him more than  they realized.   In reply to their remonstrance   he    would   say    plaintively:  "Bless your'heart, I can't help it, now,  r honestly.   It is the girls who take this  so seriously.    I 'never do.   Why can't  they   enjoy   a   dance,   a  few   (lowers,  'boxes of candy, an evening at the theater and other little trifles without ex-.  pectirig a proposal tacked on the end  , of'these attentions?    I don't want to  marry them. [ I  always tell ,them0 so,  and then they get mad and say I'm ,a  reckless flirt and 'I,ought to go on the  stage,- where I could make googoo'eyes  at the leading lady all the while. Now,  I think that's unjust.   .No one understands me.    I just want to enjoy myself, to sip lightly of life's pleasures,  but these women take life so seriously.  If they want to be unhappy and hollow eyed and Ophelia-like and indulge  In a hopeless, undying passion, why, I  can't help that, now, can I?"  ��������� ,So it happened that when  Gregson  decided   to go home with Disbrow for  part of the vacation the sensation created   was   profound.     Gregson   away  from Newport and the country club, a  thousand miles  from  a yacht,  buried  on a midwest farm!   What-would the  girls do, and what would Gregson do?  The intimacy between the two men  win on the surface incongruous.  Greg-  eon   was   a   typical   city   man.   well  groomed, well dressed and absolutely  self contained.    His grandfather  had  been one of the few millionaires of his  day; his father  was now one of the  many.   Disbrow came from a midwest  farm,  from  which  he  had wrung  by  the literal sweat of his brow a course  at the great eastern college. , He wore  ready  made  clothes,   cared  more   for  his books than  his tub  and .was  extremely self  conscious,  easily  embarrassed.    But  between  the two  there  existed a peculiar affinity.  Gregson drawled as he was packing  his trunk for the trip: "Disbrow comes  from the stuff our presidents are made  of.    He might be president some day.  and then I'd be glad to know him and  get a foreign post."   Not for the world  would he admit u. disinterested affection   for this  awkward   chap   toward  whom  he had been so strangely and j  unselfishly drawn.    And so he landed j  at the Disbrow farm with a selection j  of clothing which, though a credit to-  home. Come to think of it, Disbrow  had had her picture, along with hia  sister's and mother's, on ,his wall at  college. Perhaps she was a relative  too.  Disbrow had stayed home. At the  last moment his mother had been taken slightly ill, and he had explained to  Gregson that he hated'to leave her in  that shape. She had worked so hard  that he might go, to college. And  Gregson had not minded. He had met  and been, cordially received by many  of the neighbors. Besides, a country  festival was a novelty to him. Disbrow was waiting ������*p for him, and  tney stopped for a snuke on tht small  porch, with masses of fragrant honey-'  suckles. "   ' ,  'Tretty girl, that Miss Davis,. and  rather a good sort, I imagine,". said  Gregson carelessly.  Disbrow's pipe was suspended midway in the air.  "You've struck it, Harry. No other  words would describe her. She,is a  good, sort, and"���������there 'was a short  pause, in which Disbrow seemed to be  studying his pipe thoughtfully���������"I've  neyw quite been able to understand '  how she could love such an oaf as I.  I'm not half fit for'her. but we've beea  ���������sweethearts ror years, and I believe  for her sake I can overcome almost  any obstacle. She helped me pay th������  mortgage on this place and, literally  forced me to college.' She's���������she's a  regular inspiration.',',     -    <    ���������  .Gregson's pipe had gone out, and he,  did not offer to relight it.    In a few'  moments   he   rose,   stretched   himself  lazily and murmured with a depth-of ,  feeling quite out of keeping with his'  -attitude: i '���������7'-    "'  "/'Man,' you're to be congratulated.  Love like hers can keep a fellow from  "doing lots of fool things.",     ���������'   ���������.  The moonlight filtered through the  poplar trees and tho dormer window  beyond ,which lay -'Gregson, his head  propped on his elbow, his pipe puffing'  vigorously. .He was thinking again of  that innocent, half pleading face,' of  the wonder in her gentle eyes' at his  cleverly ��������� worded, half veiled compli-  .ments, of the flush that might come to  her cheek when they met again "and  when he .held her hand just a trifle  longer than good form demanded. She  knew so little and he so  much.    He  GROWTH OF RAILWAY FACILITIES  -������ir  Thomas .Shaughnepsy on C. P.

"The .increase in the tonnage car-,  ried one miles was in 1902 over  1901. 36.26^ per cent., and in 1903  over 1902,   _8.52 per cent.     -���������  "Similarly the increase in the>number of barrels of xour carried in 1902  over 1901 was 31.87 per cent., and  in 1903 over 1902 it was 36.42 per  cent ' ' ^    ��������� -  '"Greater even was the increase pin  the number of bushels 'of grain carried : the figures showing an'advance  of 60.10 per cent, in 1902 over 190.1,  nnd the very remarkable���������the abnormal���������increase of 97.34 per cent. in  _v)03 over 1902.

Such conditions are altogether  unusual, and it should be a matter  of congi atulation ' that the Canadian  roads have been able, on the whole,  to do as well as they have.  ''It is quite certain that they have  done at least as well- as their American competitors.' ' Moreover, in the  case of the ,Canadian" Pacific, at'  least; 'the temporary scarcity of rolling, stock and motive power will disappear so soon as their new shops at  Hochelaga are, completed.*1 These  will be' models of what other roads  should have, and in their completeness and size they will be entirely^  without  a rival."

Most  of .the. envelopes were small and distinctly feminine in their chirography.  One bore his father's office address in  the corner. He read this 'first and  turned to Disbrow with an air of  mingled surprise and regret that was a  credit to his versatility.        ���������  "The pater wants me to run over to  London on a little mission for him, so  I'll have to be leaving tomorrow or  next day. I'm no end. sorry, especially  about the fishing trip I won't have to  Spirit lake; but business is business."  Disbrow was genuinely disappointed  over the sudden termination of Greg-  bou's visit. They had planned so many  short jaunts up to the lakes, but during the fortnight already spent thero  had been too much for him to look;  after on the farm. He voiced this feeling as he watched Gregson pack.  ."I wanted you to see more of Alice,  too," he said. "She's not just the sort  you're used to, but in her way she'i  one in a thousand. And you'd learn  to like her."  "I know I shouldn't," answered Gregson, kneeling to fold some trousers.  "Will you tell her for me, if I don't seo  her again, that I consider you the two  luckiest people of my acquaintance,  and I'm coming back when you are  married and settled?"  But Disbrow did not catch the words  murmured under the other man's  breath, "but not until then."  "Sillc" That Ia Reallr Tin.

L It is ' impossible to lay down any  set rule to guide farmers in ' breakr  ing. It all depends on the soil and  the s'od. The. whole object of breaking or plowing is to secure a seed  bed. Where the land is covered with  a heavy mat,, of grass, the" sod is  full' of rootlets, and requires rotting  before it can be pulverized to make  a   seed  bed.    Such  land,-   should     be  stumps'"and r^.-^ts aie torn ou'.'gath-  ready for seed without further plow-.  ing-  Some farmers assert that sowing  on breaking without back-setting  gives a poor crop the first, and even  the second years, and that back-setting is the only way to start right.  Others, are just as emphatic in' say-  hig that'it, is all right to sow 'on  breaking without back-set. The fact  of the matter is that' it depends altogether on the soil and thc sod, as  already explained.  , One thing-more about breaking.'If  it is a wet season, the sod when  turned, will generally lie down fiat,  and thus ensure, quick rotting. But if  it De a dry season, the sod soon dries  and stiffens, and is often seen . in ,  loops-and, partly on the edge, 'with1  many hollow spaces under it'. .Instead of rotting it will dry out, and  no amount of disking or harrowing  ���������will pulverise it. In such' dry sea-'  sons the land should be rolled with  a .heavy roller each day as. soon,, as  plowed. This flattens, the sods, closing up hollow ��������� spaces'and preserves  tho moisture of the under soil arid  'greatly increases ths rotting'process.  Orlffln  of Mathematical' Bignm.

On the first Sunday- in April, al-  roo������t under the shadow of Notre  Dame, where five 'thousand of the  flock of Leo the Thirteenth were gathered in honor of Palm Sunday, in  a big upstair hall1 on ,the same  street, scarcely furnished as yet with  moro than a few benchea, but with  tha sanctuary duly veiled almost  from the sight of the congregation  by, a heavy rood screen, and on the  wails a lew of f,the pictures that here  replace the prohibited images,, ths  faithful came for the dedication of  their new church. The congregation  was not large. , Thero aie only some  2-00 of the orthodox in Montreal,  nearly all Syrians, and many of  the'm do' business on Sundays as  well as on other days of the week.  Among those that did attend were a  good many children who received  the rite of communion with their elders, according to Eastern fashion.  With their dark faces, their brilliant,  intensely black eyes, and the gorgeous coloring of the costumes they  affected, they were easily the most  picturesque congregation in the metropolis.  'Father George.  Father   George   has   worked    long  and hard for this attainment. In the  ���������yes   of  all    the    orthodox  of Montreal,    and   of  hundreds  of  traveling  Syrians    in    the    peddling     business,  who  visit Montreal  once or twice    a  year, he represents the whole church.
