Creech, the  .daughter .of our respected townsman, Mr B. Mellado, is-the mother  of a girl. Mrs^Wm Anthonv of.  ���������another, 'vhile Mrs Alex- Gray,  presented her husband with a boy.  The town is rapidly filling up, .   o   STAVY , DAY.  The  sports ,on   Saturday   were  fairly attended,  but owing,    it   is  said,   to  the   flagship   having    le-  ceivfd orders  which  changed   her  plans   materially     regarding   her  ?t������y   in   Comox,   rrot   nearly   the  number of men were at  liberty  to  attend as was at  fust anticipated.  Two o'clock v\ ���������s the  hour   set   for  beginning, but as most of the  visitors did   not  reach   here   until 4,  proceedings were  delayed,  and,   it  was found impossible to get- off all  the events on the programme.   The  football match, Navy   vs. Cumberland,    was   hotly  contested,   and  when, at half time, the  score stood-  2 to 0 for the Navy. Lhe little  dollars wnich ihe staunch sports   had  placed on   the  Cumberland   boys,  began to look like loots.      In    the  latter half however, amid fast play  and rare combination work  of the  Naval team, the Athletes   scored  4  goals, alikicked by our wee.Tommy  Wjhyte.,   Then   the   little, dollars  loomed up   like   pounds   sterling,  Foot race, costume���������ist> Silk;  ,2nd, Peufold. .    . - - .,_<   ��������� _. ,  Bicycle costum" race���������lst^ .A.

As advertised, the doors of the  hall were oppned at 7:15 for the  minstrel show, but here again the  people of our town were ' to -blame,  for v\ith'-their customary dilatori-  ness they did not enter cthe building hVsumcient numbers to allow,  a start to be made' until nearly 9  o'clock, giving a weary wait to  those few who came in near the  given time. Then however, the hall  filled rapidly.  Wefailtosee  why   Cumberland  people seem to think it the   correct  >thing to  keep   peiformances,   and  dances back to such a late hour by  non attendance.  The troupe acquitted  themselves  very creditably, the dancing being  especially good.     Mr Hamilton, in  the Highland   Fling   und   Sword  dance, giving   his  many   countrymen of this   place  an opportunity  of peeing Scotch dancing of rare excellence.    Mr O'Connor gave a good  clog, and Mr St-nnouj-e'gave indisputable proof of  his being   master  of thc sailor's .hornpipe.     Unfortunately, tho music chosen   was   accented   in    a    manner   evidently  strange to him,  and   as   a   consequence be could not acquit himself  to full satisfaction.  Messrs Bnggs and Wrench's  tomahawk swinging wes much appreciated also. Following is the  programme:  PART; I.

In the   provincial   police   court  yesterday   two   young   men   weie  charged with having game in their  possession at Elk lake on Sunday  lapt, having been caught   by   Constable Cox.     The  magistrate imposed a fine  of   $25   each,   which  may have  the  effect  of   deterring  others from shooting game  out of  season.    If there is to be any game  left in the* country the slaughter ol  the voung birds before the opening  of the season must be stopped, and  there is no better way than by im*  posing heavy fines.    That imposed  yesterday was heavier   than   some  that have been imposed, but  there  is no reason in a case of the kind,  where there is  no possible, excuse  for the shooting, that i.he lull penalty should not be imposed -Colon_tfe_... f   a       '

grown to such lcarful proportions
that it aroused the most.intense curiosity, which ,they aivtii'cd by crawl
ing to the front," though Jim Bludsoe <-
whispered a hoa'isc warning onanist
any onc showing more than^ tlie tip
of" his' nose beyond the line 'of rock,
for those blacks w.cre keen of sight,
like all people born and bred in the,
wii derricks. - '
The spectacle ..that gr.eofed 'their
gaze was ona never to be forgotten,
and even the "'most gifted of pens
would fail to do the sub.cet justice,'
with, the flashing firelight, the adia-
cent huts so* strangely formed, the
circle of black women and old_ men,
and tho,se who took part in the coun-
Cll. ' ' t ' i
Hundreds of blaclc and- powerful
lookina warriors came pouring down
past."thf kraal gates", dancing in, thp
most grotesque manner as 'jthey advanced toward the council firr. in
crescent wedges, and making the most
unearthly and awe inspiring, noises/
Over their shouXJei-, x-a'ch warrior
wore a peculiar liabric ^pf jet/ black
osu ich'feathers m a so_t ox hood that
Haunted-amd wa%edras if imbued with
mysterious life c\ cry time therwearer
made a sudden movement.
Around their, foreheads-were circlets
of tawny fur, taken- perhaps from the
lion's skin.* with long, steel-colored
crane's feathers floacmg above.
' About their loins, were hung a
variegated collection of monkey and
ca't slcins,. which dangled . in long
SLi-ips, the tails almost sweeping 'the
ground. The most striking feature ol
'their attire, howc\er, were white and
wavy tints of ' o::-tail hair, which
banded their arms and legs after tht
fashion in vogue among the Zulus
'These", with a wonderful shield of rhinoceros ride and1 assegais,' completed rhe terrmc ensemble. '-
As they poured into the circle some
of 'ilhom.rpt.ried like cats or growled
like wild beasts while others chanted
in low", rolling monotones,<? and all
of them kept up an incessant rattling
on1 their parchmentrbke shields, the
tom-toms adding'to tbe ..general din.
Taken collectively the racket was terrible enough to almost freeze the
blood in the \ems of a white pil-
When all had gathered dn a great
semi-circie. with thc fire m the midst,
still keeping up a monotonous chant
that woulcf ring forever and a day in
the ears of those who eagerly looked
on, a'tail buck suddenly spiang into
tho open where all eyes coald behold
his sinuous twists and curves, and
bee.au a oantomine to illustrate
wnat a terror to the foe he would
be in  the day  ol  battle
He leaoed high into the air with a
venomous thrust ol his assegai that
would ha-^c dm en the terrible weapons through an ox Next he would
crouch as though creeping upon an
enemy, to suddenly bound erect,
strike with his weapon, aud finish
with a whirl that would ha% e done
credit to a dervish.
A second joined him in the ring, to
be followed" by a third, and prcsent-
lv there were a dozen leaping and
labbeimg and spitting imaginary
loos upon then keen-pointed assegais.
Those who obsei\ed this remarkable scene could not withdraw their
c\\es, such was tire horrible fascination that appeared to chain them,
(liaduallj the ring cleared, as the ec-
eentnc dancers weaiied of th. .f fantastic quick step movement
But the end was not _>et.
A single I'gute advanced with the
oddest side leaps or springs lmagm-
anre. Bludsoe     w hisj ercd   m   J.oid
B.-uno's ears that this was the w itch-
dot tor or high priest, a crafty
schemer whose power over thc people -was1 even greater than, that exercised by the war chiefs themselves.
By 'moans of these eccentric bounds
this high priest, black and horrid,
made ' the round of the Ore, singing
the most terrifying chant that ever
racked mortal ears.
' He was partially .'.covered-.'.with
gree-grees, or .charms, consisting of
human bones, : small gourds containing pebbles of gold, and balls of human hair and bird feathers. Taken
in all he looked like a worthy satellite of the Old Nick, running, loose
on earth in a search for souls, and
this was doubtless the very idea he
meant to .'convey, since his prime object .in'life was to terrify- those who.
believed him'in league with the great
god .M'limo. In his bony -hand this
demon-like dancer held a small wooden idol which he waves in the air
from time to time as though invoking the good will  of th:  oracle.

, A New York paper, which' seems'to
be interested in decrying Canada, allows that there is every promise of a
magnificent crop in Manitoba, but
takes upon itself tor,say that'the
Manitoba fanners ''will receive precious little benefit as the proceeds
will be devoured by" ithe' Canadian
Pacific monopoly,' whose rates are
exorbitant."      , '
.Without- doubt Canadian Pacific
wdieat rates are higher than rates
for a corresponding distance in East-,
"ern .States and the Eastern States,
but this is merely saying that 'rates'
m a new and sparsely settled < region
are higher than rates'in older and
.more thickly populated countries,
which is not a grievance peculiar to,
Manitoba. A fairer test is to see how
rates from Manitoba to Fort William
compare with rates from Minnesota
and Dakota to Duluth.
Here, too, one would expect to find
Manitoba    rates    somewhat    higher.
While wages are practically the same
m Manitoba as  in Minnesota and the
Bakotas, ' thc cost of rolling    stock.
,luol and railway supplies generally is'
dearer  in Manitoba.  Moreover,  those
states   contain   a  far   larger   population' than    Manitoba,   the    output  of
grain from -them wiUh the volume of
return freight from Lake Superior is
very  much" greater,   and,, the   amount
of    local    traffic   more    considerable.
Nevertheless,(rates    from    Manitoba,
that is, the rates in force last", yeaiv
to-Fort William compared - very favorably   indeed  with 'r���tes   from Minnesota  and  Dakota to  Duluth.
- A glance at the map shows that the
wdieat belt south 'of the line is considerably neaier  Lake 'Superior  than
the wheat belt   of   Manitoba, which
may be said _to begin, at Winnipeg, or
rather aH, Portage and Brandon.      It
is   impossible,   therefore,   to' compare
rates   mile   for   mile.-    For   instance,
Deloraine, an important wheat point
in. Manitoba," is1 629 miles from Fort
William,  but if for purposes <.of .comparison,   we1 sought  a point    on the
Great Northern, Mr. J.. J. Hill's road,
equi-distant  from Duluth,   we would
find     ourselves    landed in    Montana,
where no' wheat to speak of is grown
and   where,   consequently,   no. special
rate is quoted.    A nominal local rate
for wheat is. quoted, ^but it. would be
clearly unfair  to the Great .Northern
to compare it with Ithe through rate,
on'the Canadian Pacific from,, Deloraine' to  For.t- William.     -It - is' necessary,   therefore,    n   order   to   be .perfectly   ilist  to1    confine     ourselves   to
rates   from  points   in  Minnesota and
the Dakbtas that are well within the
wheat  belts' of those states;   m otlfei-
words, to compare rates on. the shorter hauls  of the  Great Northern with"
those on the longer hauls ot the Can-*
adian Pacific. t
The Great Northern is selected for
comparison because * it used to be
charged that thc Northern Pacific
was in league with the Canadian Pacific to oppress the farmer. The wheat
tariff in force last fall on the Great
Northern was known as G.F.O. 14.00,
winch took effect on August 1, 1898.
with three amendments dated May
and Dec. 23, 1900
by   C.P.K.   to   Fort   Wil-

. This is a story one woman is never
tired of telling of a mother whose child
had been .ill with scarlet fever. She
always emphasizes the fact, too, that
the mother was possessed, upon ordinary occasions, witli' good sense and
would be called a more than ordinarily
iIntelligent woman. She was, too, a
more than ordinarily careful mother,
and it was as an illustration of 'thia
that she told tbe story of (the care of
her boy to the friend who now repeats
it. Not as much was known 'about
sanitary conditions then as, now, but
it was not in a time,of primitive ignorance.    , '
"'I always believe In taking .tbe greatest care to' prevent contagion in any
disease," said tbe mother,' "and with
the fever 1 was extraordinarily careful. JVhy, when the skin began to
peel I rubbed tbe child down with'my
bands every day to remove every loose
fragment, let it fall .into, a clotb. and
then' 1 gathered" it up carefully and
shook it out tbe window."     __
The listener to that story lauglredo
then and there, to tbe 'great surprise
and indignation of the mother, and
laughs now at tbe .ridiculous ignorance

<* vestige of'common sense.'

A rn._le as.a-J-iire saver.
The mine mule knows a thing or two
fluite as well as does the army mule.
In one of the mines in the Pittsburg
district the ever' patient mule proved
himself possessed of an almost human
sense of coming danger.   One morning
when the full shift was at work there
occurred an  unusual thing.    The air
currents  had   seemed   defective,   and ���
there was a" restless feeling among the
miners, something like the uneasiness  .
of'live stock before a storm.'.A few
days   previous  a  chamber   had   been s
closed on account of gas, and the men
were 'instinctively   thinking, of .what  ,
that might mean.    Suddenly there was
��� clatter'of hoofs,, and a mule appeared.    Its longjears'were quivering, and
its intelligent'eyes.were full of terror.
It gave a shrill bray and then was
gone down the entrj-, broken traces flying after it.    The men looked at one
another, and then the feverisbness of
*1be air moved them with one impulse.
Dropping picks, they fled precipitately,"
making a headlong dash through the
labyrinth'for the open air.. With scared '
faces other' miners joined them,  and .'
while  they, were  wondering  what it  '
ell meant a dull, deep explosion went
rumbling through the _ollow .back of ,.
them, .followed by wave'upon wave of
noxious vapors.   Then'they understood.
-When the bodies of the few'poor men/.
who   had   been   hopelessly   entrapped
were-recovered, another was, tenderly *

The rates on thc Great Northern,
given above, are pronounced reasonable by the state railway commissions as well as by the interstate
commerce - commission at Washington. This, being the case, it. is hard
to understand how any fair-minded

here, a really'nice girl, has the habit,

will make some disparaging remark
and conclude with, "Oh, well, you know

Now this girl docs not come of aristocratic blood on ber maternal side. Her
'ancestors were simple, honest tradesmen who never pretended to style" or.
had any . ambition to pose as aristocrats. They were in tbe shoe business.
One day, the girl was talking much as
usual. The wit, alas, was on-deck loaded with back number facts. "Ob," said
Miss Critic, with, a toss of her head, as
she mentioned a debutante, "of course
she is not to tbe manner born. I always

eyes,to come to her. As she did so, Prince

"No.'    Take   her   by   surprise.     She'll

It   requires   considerable' labor  and  prompt attention to make manures and  retain the elements of natural fertility  '    within the accumulation of stable and  barnyard, especially ifoexposed to the  air and rain.   No one denies that a manure shod or covered barnyard is the  . safest way to prevent lossJfrom leach-  , ing. but very few farmers own or are  able to construct' covered yards.    For  nearly 20 years we have not sold any  t-traw from the farm nor have we eoldt  'any.hay for ten years.   The hay is fed  aud some straw, but a very large proportion of the latter finds its way into  manure under tbe feet of our stock a*  bedding and absorbent to, save largely  the liquid portion of animal excrement.  Sometimes at first it seems next to  Impossible to work the large quantity  of straw thrashed each fall'into, manure lit for farm  use, but each year  before next thrashing time we have to  husband our stock - of straw for bedding or let1 our cows,   horses,  calves,  sheep and pigs sleep in filthy quarters,  I much to our annoyance and loss fiuan-  | dally.'  Our stock of manures is made,out of  doors or.  rather,   finished there after,  being,, hauled from the (stables.    Cow  and   horse   manures   are   mixed. and  i spread, out lu a large pile and every  few days the flat rick or pile is bedded l  by distributing a layer of "straw over it  and usually the young stock has some l  hay placed there so as to induce them,  to tramp  the  manure and -straw  together.'   By  hauling tho manures directly from stall to field, we'could not  'utilize much over one-half the bulk of  straw on hand; hence we feel that we  do not lose much from/accumulation of \  manure for at least a few weeks,  if  .handled  rightly.    At  no time do-we  allow manures taken from the stables  tbrown out in conical piles,to ferment  and fire fang���������that is. to consume in a  slow'combustion, and also to leacb and  leave little but a small percentage, of  phosphoric acid   and. potash.   __Where  blred men are employed it is yerj*.difficult torget .them to comprehend the,advantages obtained by an even distribu-  M  A LITTLE TOO SOON.

We And that our soil requires large  quantities of humus and that without  it farming is not successful, especially  on clay soils.    In these soils the work  of decay of organre  matter not only  directly adds  fertility,  but it disintegrates in such soils,  which naturally  beco ;ie teimcious without It and  frequently because of a  lack of enough  humus   unavailable   fertility   remains  locked up and even available material  becomes "reverted" or unavailable.   To  avoid   an   overplus  of   humus   In   our  three year rotation we do not distribute  more than ten tons of such manure on  an acre and do that from the wagon.  This is usually as much, along with an  undergrowth of a second crop of clover, as an acre will take care of with  tbe average   rainfall  of  the growing  season.    By this economy we are able  to spread our quite large supply over %  large territory and doing so every three  years is like adding cash to a yearly  annuity.   , - ' >     _  One of the greatest wastes that come  ro most farms is the feeding of hogs  ���������arelessly in a small inclosure year after year aud   the droppings either accumulate or are washed away.    This  has been often  one of  the harassing  problems with us until we used iuelo-  I sures  near  the straw  yard  and   kept  i them -liberally   supplied   with   straw.  j A dozen shores confrued in such an ln-  j closure from December till March fully  i demonstrated  that it pays to get the  \ residuum in this way.  j     We   have  convinced   ourselves  that  j where time is money manure making  j has not been time lost and also that  ��������� where.lt has been evenly mixed in the  ' composting we feel repaid for tbe labor  expended in doing so.    We find that a  barnyard properly located is so essentia I in successful manure making that  under ;no circumstances could we neglect rhe selection of a spot to conduct  our operations.

JLMn't forget-to call at the NEWS  when you want job prin in^ do neat reasonable rates.  Imperfect Development of the Front  ' a   Common   Fault.  Doubtless you all know that the productivity of an udder is dependent upon tbe number of epithelial or secretive  cells it contains and not necessarily  upon Its size, says Professor H. Hay-  ward. The ideal udder then would be  one of such a shape that the maximum  sized udder containing the maximum  number of secreting cells could be easily carried when full. A little thought  will show us that the shape of this  udder must'necessarily form part of an  arc of a circle, but that both the back  and front part of the udder will extend  beyond tbe circle and thus form what  we know as a. square, well balanced  udder.  Tbe udder should, of course,, be free  from much flesh.   Tbe amount of flesh,  an   udder will  show  on milking out,!  however, will depend on the period of-  lactation, as the more active the se-.  cretive   cells  are  the   more  apparent  flesh will the udder show after milking.   A fleshy mid*- is readily distinguished by the fact that the superfluous  flesh that It contains usually seems to  drop more or less to the bottom of the  udder, making It pendulous.    Such an  udder not only  is unsightly,  but the  cow with such an udder is quite likely  to transmit this undesirable quality to  her'offspring.';-'The'most common fault  found in the udder is the imperfect d(y  velopment of the front.   This is often  seen in a very marked degree, in certain  families or sometimes whole breeds.  I believe the lack of development in  the front udder Is the cause of a large  aggregate loss to the dairymen of our  country, and it is well worth the while  to at least make the effort to overcome  this fault, which is so common.in pur  dairy cow^s. To give some idea off the  great difference between the quantity  of milk produced.|>y the front and rear  udders I quote $iei.resultsi'obtained by  1'rofessor PlumJ^n. some studies of  the udder whicli^^-^pade a few years  ago. In 220 different' lots of milk obtained from 155 .different cows, representing several types of, udders, 7 he  found that the average yield of the 226  front udders xvus 4.1'quarts' while the.  average yield of the 226 rear udders  was 4.9 quarts, or a difference of over  Id per cent. It should be borne in  urind t t those were average udders  aird i.oi udders noticeably deficient in  NOTICE in hereby fiivtn. in  ������cooirt_oc������  with the " Statue*,   that  Pruvinnal  Revenue Tax, and  all   iaxen   U-\ied , under  the Awf-win" CAft. ������r^;.nn������' flu*  for the  year 1901. .

Lewis.  f (  There arrived one clay at the Swiss1"*  hotel where I was,putting up iu the  , month of "August a man and his, wife  named Dubar.   They were French, but  both spoke English fairly well. , While  they were husband and wife,  he was  ���������"   *     <    DO years old and she not over 22.   The  disparity between their ages  was  re-  '     ' marked by the gossips, and it was settled that it had been a* marriage for'  ''    money on'the girl's part.    They  had  been married for a year, as some one  ascertained,'and the little tendernesses  r of. the honej'moon were no longer to be  looked for, but before they fhad 'been  with us'three'days I made up my, mind  that the young wife both feared arid  ,1       '"   hated her husband.,   I  saw it in  her  looks and actions when she  was off  her guard.   On his part he "treated her  courteously and  rather paternally  \r\  *     public, but accident made me a listener,one day to a speech of his that told  " me' ,he had a great bitterness in his  heart against her..  I paid little heed to the gossip around  < me, nor did I take any interest in the  family quarrels   It was on the fifth  k .    "       day" after  the  couple arrived   that  1  ���������wandered away by myself along the  mountain stream and by and  by sat  down beside a bowlder to smoke and  'gaze at a waterfall on the'far side of  the creek.   I had been there a quarter  of _n hour when  1   heard  footsteps,  -and,   peering out,   1   saw  DubaS-  approaching.   I noticed he. was pale faced  and his lips were compressed, and .he  was. muttering"to  himself in   French  as he'sat down on the other side of the,  stone.   We were hidden*from each oth  meditated some evil. '  That evening there were music and  song, and Dubar and his wife participated   with   apparent   enjoyment   and  were quite loving toward each other.  Before the party^ broke up for the night  it was suggested that we go to a certain   spot   on   the   morrow .to. gather  mosses.   The suggestion, as was after  ward' remembered, came from  Dubar  We were to take luncheon and be gone  all   day.   although   it   was  only   three  miles to the spot  mentioned.     Bright  ond  early  next   morning  a   full  dozen  of us set out."there  being seven  mon  , and  Qve  women.     As   the  pi occasion  turned 'into the mountain path  I  was  last, and Dubar and his wife were bo-  fore me. , lie laughed ,and joketk and  she was merry\and lull of sons;.    I hud  been  bothered  with  a lame  foot and  was  obliged, to   proceed   slowly,   and  several times they laughingly called to  me.    We had gone about a mile when  they   drew   ahead   out   of' sight,' and,  knowing the locality well, 1 set out to  take a short cut aud  save distance.  This .took  me to the  east  side ol" a  ravine, while the main party were following   the   west   side.     I   got, along  fairly well until 1 was about to strike  the path they were, following. . Owing  to a bend of the ravine, the pa'.h was  half  a mile  away  at  one  point  aud  then came turning back on, itself, until  it was only, a few.* rods fromD where 1  sat down to rest and wait.1 ,  1 knew that most of the picnickers,  had passed, but was sure I could'head  off the Dubars,* as  1  caught sigiit of  them at intervals, and they were still  ���������i  REVERIES OF A  BACHELOR.

Then he began cursing his  wife, and there were an intcntness and  a ferocity in his language that gave  me the keynote of the trouble between  them. He suspected her fidelity and  thirsted for revenge. If she had mar  ried him for money, he had married  her for love, and the blow had told on  him harder than if he had been a young  man. From cursing and reviling lie  went off into a fit of weeping and lamenting, and it was easy to realize his  mental sufferings. I was helpless in  the matter, of course. It was my pnrt  to remain silent and hope he would  go away without seeing me. This he  eventually, did, but from some espres-,  sions let fall 1 knew that he had at  last made up his mind to a decisive,  step. '   ..  The rule in France, I believe. Is for  the dishonored husbiind to swear a little, weep a-little and then walk away  and become as much of a philosopher  as he can, but 1 couldn't make myself  satisfied that Dubar would be satisfied  with that. He felt the blow too keenly. He wanted a deeper revenge than  that of casting his wife off and sharing  a part of the publjescandal. 1. had a  seat.at the same table with the couple,  and that evening at dinner I watched  him closely. His conduct would-have  deceived me had 1 not overheard his  language in the dell. He was all smiles  and soft words and seemed to be court  ing her again.    The  wife  had  brightened up and looked cheerful and  animated, and I read the story very  clearly. On returning from the dell  he had "made up'' with her. and sue  had been deceived into believing that  he had forgiven.. That he was playing  her false was plain from a look or two  of his when she was not observing. 1  paw his mouth harden, his eyes flash,  and felt sure that down in his heart he  lagging far behind.    Opposite the spot  where I rested the w.est path ran.over  a cliff, making .the highest point,along  the ravine.    From the top of,that clitt  to the bed "of the "ravine .was fully 75,  feet.   Though my eyesight was-gopd, 1  had brouglit'along my binoculars, and  as I rested I focused them on the distant cliff to make out the 'Dubars as  they passed.   In three or four minutes  they arrived.   They were walking hand  in hand and still acting like lovers.    V  could see the smiles on .their faces-as  they halted  for breath.1/  1  could  and'  did see more'than that.   As'they stood  peering down  into, the  ravine  I  saw  such, a look of malignant itriumpls on  the man's face that it made^ me gasp  for breath.    The  look  warned me of  what was coming.    She stood a little  before him, pointing at a flower grow-1  ing on the very brink of the cliff and  speaking of it,- and I saw him glance,  lip and down the path to see'if it was^  clear.   Then I cried out, but my voice  was weak "and broken and did not car-_  ry a quarter of the distance.    I sprang  tip to wave my hat and jet the man,  know'I was watching, but it was a use-'  less move, and I, groaned in despair as  L realized it.    I had the glass full on  him when he stepped behind her and  put out his hands and gave'her a sudden push.    Shev had no" chance at all.  It  was only three or four feet 'to' the  brink, and the push sent her over as*  she screamed out.    Dubar. stood \for a  moment and then turned and ran  for  the hotel and gave the alarm.   < Word  was sent to the picnickers, aud they returned,  and  before  noon   we  had   the  body at the inn.    It was a terribl? fall,  and death had followed it.    It was an  "accident," of course, with a bereaved  husband  to  give  all   the   particulars,  and every one sorrowed with him until his dead was shipped away and he  liad departed  with   his tears.     1   whs  tbe only one who knew how the tragedy  had occurred, and  1' said  nothing.  She was dead, and  his life had  been  wrecked, and why should 1 meddle?  ���������  *  ���������  *,  *  On the 14th day of September, 1S67,,  Jared Burton, a single1 man of 30, living in a village in Iowa, .started^b'y railroad for a .town' 30' miles distant:,' and  he,has not returned to his home-and'  relatives since.' He was a man in ,-mo're  than comfortable "circumstances,' and  his mother.and sister lived with him..  Boy and man, he had lived im the village for 20/y ears when he setouVlhat  day on a.business matter. ������ When!sev-"~  eral days had passed without his return or word from him,> inquiries were  made; He had arrived at the town all  right, transacted his business and then  taken a train on another road. It was  thought he had gone away in the company of a stranger, but no,one could be  sure of this. After ten days and still  no word he was advertised for, and detectives were employed'to hunt him up.'  The search was not given up for .three  months, andvthen it was believed that  he was dead.   ��������� -  A year had gone by and the mystery  was still unsolved when one day Jared  Burton returned���������that Is. he said he  was .Tared Burton,, and the question  of whether he was or not brings out  this story. One leaving ���������e' train he  met Squire Danforth and shook handa  How He Did It.  At a dinner party the conversation,  which had become in formal and general, turned on the subject of trickt-  with cards. Oneot the men produced  a pack and proposed to show the company a most remarkable performance.  He asked the hostess to have a soup  tureen brought, and it was done. Then  he asked the lady at his right to draw  a CM'd from the pack and.make a mental note of it. She'did so and returned  the card at random to the deck. The  performer next asked three or tour of  the male guests to shuttle the cards in  turn and requested the Inst of them to  place the pack in the soup tureen and  put the cover on. Turning to the lady  who had drawn the card, he asked her  in what order she would have it appear from the top of the pack; and she  said she would like to have it in the  seventeenth place. One of the gentlemen then took the pack from the soup  tureen and counted the cards from the  top. face down.  "What was your card?" the performer asked the lady, and she replied that  it was the ace of spades^ The seventeenth card was turned over,and proved to be the ace of spades. 7  A few days later a cabinet officer,  who was one of the guests, met the  performer and asked for an explanation  of that interesting card trick.  "Oh, that was an easy' one," be'replied.    "You see, that was a pack of,  my own, and there  were 52 aces of  spades in it."���������Exchange.  It Wonld Be a Pleasure Then.

He bad wtt5  ' him the key of his desk; h'e'asked after  ���������certain clothing he had-left; he casual-  ' ly, recalled various Incidents,, and . he  had settled down' as the 'long lost returned when he: learned that his iden-'  tity was questioned.' He promptly de-  ,manded,the fullest and closest investigation, and the doubters were ready' to  make it        ,    "   ' l '  In his' boyhood days Jared Burton  had received a burn on ,the foot, leaving a"'bad r scar.1 This man exhibited'  the scar/. .Jared Burton had been bitten  .on tbe calf of the leg by a dog. Here  was the scar of the bite. -Ho had o**~3  been  near death by drowning.    This  man told of the incident.   He had been  in Chicago writh his _ncle' for a week";  he had fallen,off the roof of a"barn; he  had been on a jury in a lawsuit; he had  been robbed by a man on tlie highway."  All these things were 'fold over without  a'mistake, together .with hundreds of  other incidents.   It was a public investigation,  with everybody free to, ask  questions,, and- It   lasted   four   days.  There were still some who carped after  it was closed, but there was a complete  change of popular opinion, and Jared  Burton was compHmentod on all sides.'  The mother and sister.fully acceptedr-  him, and he settled down into his place  unquestioned.   Three months had gone  by, and the talk and wonder had .all'  died out when a blind man camo'along  one day.' He was known in various villages   as   "Old   Hanson."    He" 'sang  songs,   told   fortunes   and   performed  tricks and was well liked.'  Standing on'  the public square with, a crowd around  'him, he sang s6ngs.and then asked If  Jared Burton .was-among the spect'a-  ;tors.   Jared, stepped' forward, tahd' the  old man took him'by.the handl   ,Itwas  his'boast that,  having'once,-heardf a.  .man's  voice, and  shaken' hands  with  him,   he  could .forever afterfl identify.  him by the^feel of his palm.<->      .    . ,  ,/This is not Jared Burton!" he exclaimed as he let the hand'fall.1'  j"But it is," chorused a dozen voices.  '  '"But I say it is. not.    It is not his';  'hand.  1 never met this hand before."  "You will believe it is Jared Burton  when'I tell you so, won't you?" asked  Jared.   ,  1  "No.   You 'cannot deceive me on the  palm. ���������You are a stranger tp me."  There'had been an investigation and  an acquittal, but yet the blind man's'  .words set people to thinking,' especially  as Jared himself seemed' to be greatly  put out... The., wholej question' would  have been reopened again but .that he  started-voff for. Chicago next'day on  aa hat he claimed was a matter of business, j He had a close shave of .'it/ He  hadn't been 'gone two hours when _  "THIS IS NOT JARED BURTON."  with him and asked after the mother  and sister. Farther up the street he  met a village merchant and shook  hands and laughingly said that he had  been east in search of a wife. He  wnlked to his house.centered and called  to tbe family and- kissed mother and  sister and apologized for having worried them as he had. He hnd tbe age,  height, look and voice of Jared, and at  first the women r.ccepted him as such.  The story he toid was a queer one.  He had gone tu look at a lead mine  with a view of buying, and during the  short time he was left alone he had  tumbled down an old shaft. He knew  no more after that until he suddenly  came to himself one day in a town in  Kansas and found himself a tramp.  The fall had produced concussion of  the brain, and, though treated by doctors, he had lost bis memory ,and his  Identity and only recovered his -wits  when a constable banged his bead  against a door in arresting him. He  had told' his story, found friends and  been assisted to reach his home.   ,  The story passed all right with the  women for a day or two. but as it got  around the village and was discussed  pro and con they began to doubt. Of  the five doctors, in town four declared  the tiling impossible.. Of the 1,500  inhabitants not more than ten were,  satisfied of the truth of the story. The  matter spread until two or three counties were interested and a dozen newspapers were discussing It, and first  and last a good many people had their  say about it- The first idea, of course,  was to test this Jared Burton's memory  about the events of his life. It was a  great point In his favor that he had  recognized two or three citizens at the  moment of bis arrival and that later on  he had met dozens of others and made  no mistake except in one instance. He  had' seemed thoroughly familiar with  the house and with certain business  matters, and while he did not write  as free a hand as formerly it passed  sheriff from a distant county came to  '.arrest him as one, of'a gang of, land  stealers and counterfeiters. .He.was  followed; but not overhauled. His real  name was Charles Wright. As to what  became of the true Jared Burton no'one  can say, but he doubtless met _is death  in ,some way through falling into the  hands of the gang. He had papers  with him, but how they got liim to talk  and give"the incidents of his lifecan-  not be understood. It was,a curious  thing that auother man should so closely resemble him and should bear the"  same scars, but it was a fact not to be  got over. The bliud man and the sheriff declared the man to be a cheeky impostor, and the latter furnished ^plenty  of proofs, but the question has not been  settled yet and perhaps never will be.

In The Century Augustine Birrell  thus characterizes Gutenberg's epoch  making invention:  The invention of movable types was  tbe greatest distributive invention that  ever was or probably ever can be made.  It circulated, knowledge among the  children of men and plays much the  same part in human life as does the  transmission of force in the. world of  physics. It was marvelous bow quickly thought was circulated even in the  age of manuscripts. A book like St.  Augustine's "City of God" was socn  copied thousands of times and traveled all through Europe after a quicker  fashion than most printed books can  today reasonably hope to do, but St.  Augustine occupied a unique position,  and hand copying, though a great  trade, employing thousands of scribes,  could never have fed the new learning  or kept,alive the reformation. The  age of Gutenberg was an age of ideas  and demanded books. Just as our day is  a day of mechanics and demands,cbeap  .motion,1 telegraphy'and. telephones..

This year has been no exception to  *��������� the rule, and it is said to be a com-  mon and easy  thing   to   see   men  coming home early in the morning  with shot guns  and   doge,   besides  bulging pockets.

THE ISLANDER.  The statements credited to a  Mr  and Mrs W. A. Preston,  who  were  saved from   the   ill-fated   Islander,  that the Captain   ard   Pilot   were  intoxicated, are not worthy of the  slightest  credence.
