Off San Juan, Aug. 6���������The Americans  have   taken  peaceful   possession of the  eastern part of the island.    Small parties  of marines have been landed,  who  have  lighted   the   lamps   in   the  lighthouses  along line coast.    They have met with no  resistance; indeed, it Cape.  San Juan,  the citizens come out to meet them.   The  New Orleans a'cne maintains the blockade.   The city is grim and silent, but  there will be plenty of determination to  fight   when   the   Americans   open fare.  Capt.-Gen. Macias has made a'proclama*  tion in which he says, ���������"Spain has squealed for peace,, but 1   can   driver   off the  American boats as I did those of Sampson':;."

Shafter   to   President   McKinley  says:   "Can very readily   see   what   intense excitement the public must feel   at  the condition of my command.   At least  75 per cent of my troops have been down  with   the fever from which they   recover  very slowly, and they are in no condition  to be moved.    I   do   not   believe   there \  would have been any danger if we   could  keep out of the sun and were well clothed  and fed.   What put m> command in  it ���������  present condition, was the   character   of  the campaign when we had nothing  but  bread and coffee, without change of clothing, or shelter.   The weather has been  very stormy since the surrender.

Rear Admiral  Sampson   expresses   the  hope  that  the  peace negotiations will  come  to a quirk  conclusion. - He  is   anxious to   take aggressive action on the  south coast  without delay, or in the event of peace being  concluded   to   immediately   relieve   the  sufferings   caused   by the rigor   of   the  blockade throughout the campaign.

Capt.������Gen Blanco's Story.  New York, Aug. 8���������According   to advices received from Havana, Capt Blan  co appreciates the fact that he must soon  withdraw himself and forces from Cuba.  He has assumed a mildness of demeanor  which compares strangely with his previous bombastic style and frequently ex  presses his determination to hold out at  Havana to the death and is treating insurgents with great consideration,  and  informed the  Spanish   people   of Cuba  that Spain had been forced by foreign  powers to the disgraceful issue of suing  for peace, and there   would be no further  use for  soldiers.   A   pardon������  he   says,  ought to be granted to all Cubans prison  ers.   He assures the soldiers and Spanish residents who wish to return to Spam  or go to other Spanish possessions  they  will get free transportation given by the  mother country,   lie suggest the Cubans  be foroiven   and   no   longer   treated as  enemies, or unkind feeling be cherished.  the translation at once, but it . will ,'  take some time - to  complete, the  ULABJA TERESA.

London, Aug. 6���������Extreme tension ex-*-  ist in Great Britain,, especially in London  though many deprecate the  alarming re--  port of Friday.    It   is   hoped   the firm  stand taken by the Marquis.of Salisbury  duping the last few days will have a good  effect, and ssems to haye created some,  misgivings^at St. Petersburg.   Great Britain too appreciates  the gravity- of the-  situation.    It is learned  the admiralty is  preparing for  emergencies.    Every  officer  and   man   on   half pay   has   been,  instructed to be ready  if called  on.   The  British navy at present has  full complex  ment of officers  and men   ready to. take  her out to.sea.    According to  Pans advices   the   admu-al    commanding     the  French China squadron h_s  cabled  for  re-enforcements, and for  a  large  credit  for fortifications.    There is some  suspicion here that the action  of the French  admiral may be connected  with a. knowledge of Russians designs..    The- situation  is very grave indeed.  Victoria News.

One Madcap Who Flirted Outraceously and  Finally Married a Penniless Prince���������But  It Isn't Always Disagreeable, and the Pay  Xs Frequently Very Good.  To take a party of girls abroad for the  summer may seem a siiuplo thing, but any  cuioAvho has tried it will swear that simplicity isn't tho striking feature of tho cx-  ;jjeriunce. Still, the number of women  -willing to undergo such chnneronugo increases overy year. Tho thing has grown  into a regular business, and peoplo with  money and daughters aro besieged every  spring1 and fall by professional ehunorons.  Tho other day at a tea a Chicago woman  who has made a great success of the business and has practically-lived abroad for  ion years was tnlking abont the life.  -".Once I went abroad for a year with  one girl," sho said. "She was the wealth! ���������  -est girl in���������well, I'll not tell you what  -.state, but sho was from tho west. Pier father offered mo So,000 and my expenses if  "_ would take charge of her for a year. As  to our expenses, he didn't put any limit  aopon thorn, so 1 thought the thing was too  good to be refused. When tho daughter  camo to Chicago, I decided I would havo  zoo trouble. She was remarkably pretty.  jIHer manners were almost as impossible as  Sier clothes, but I could replace the clothes  and reform tho manners. She seemed  good natured and rather shy. Wo sailed  for' Europe, and on the steamer I had a  - foretaste of thc wrath to come. > That girl  i_irtod with every one, from a Hindoo  princo to the cabin boys. I couldn't take  my eyes off her for a momont but sho  ���������would do something to cause gossip, and  yet when I wrestled with her she cried  2������n_ seemed so grieved and contrite that I  thought  perhaps  the child  really didn't  fcno\v,bett_er. .,  .   "We got through England  pretty well,  escopt one  night  at  Cambridge, when   I  was ill and she slipped out and went rowing on thc,Cam with  a young  collegian  xvho had'dined at the table with us.

The papers told fabulous stories about  .st, and we were fairly besieged by beggars  ���������and tradespeople and fortune hunters.    In  r Paris  I  simply'earned  my bread  by the  t sweat of my brow."    My charge set all tho  American  colony  gossiping   and   finally  one night  announced to me that sho was  engaged to a penniless ��������� but good  looking  German   attache of  unsavory reputation.  "We left the next morning, and  1 endured  "tears a I'd reproaches until we wero settled  :i_ Berlin and tho German officers effected  -a euro.  Wo-were visiting Baron, do M. and  his wife, and we all kepc sharp watch'np-  -on tbe men who flocked to tho house.

Naturally wc stopped that,  aud 1 cabled to tho girl's father, breaking  xay    agreement and   asking    whether   I  should tako  bis daughter home.    Ho answered  that  he would come for her, and  ���������we went to Nico to wait for him.  ���������"Tho night boforo ho was to arrive -wc  ���������went to bed early. He camo at (3 in the  .-morning, went to her room and found a  .-note beginning, 'Dearest papa, whon you  -.read this, I'll be tbo happiest of girls  .and a princess.' She had married an Italian princo iu debt up fco his ears and with  no redeeming feature savo a pair of black  eyes. How did her father tiike it? Oh,  he swore eloquently, but ho forgave her,  and ho certainly behaved royally in regard  to mo.  -"That is one experience. Then, three  -years ago, I took six girls abroad, and at  a tiny village in Italy one of them was  taken seriously ill. The doctor fooled  .about for a week and finally said sho had  smallpox. Wo had all been exposed, for  sho had been with us constantly. The ho  tel keeper would not keep us. Neither  prayers nor money had any effect upon  i������im. Ho simply said wo must move out  at once. There was no hospital, and we  couldn't get away from tho town, and no  ono would tako us in."  "'What in tho world did you do?" asked  .-the littlo fat woman who had started tho  ���������conversation by saying something about  the delights of chaperoning.  "Oh, I went to the priest. -I've found  .that is. the only thing to do whon ono is in  -a.littlo foreign town and things go hopo-  Jessly wrong. Bless thoso dear fat fathers!  'They've saved mo from lunacy soveral  -.times. This particular priest was a saint.  He abused tho innkeeper in a stylo which  i_y weak Italian couldn't approach, and  he took us to a couvent near tho town,  ���������where tho sisters behaved like a troop of  seraphs. I telegraphed to Romo for an  "English doctor, and when ho arrived the  next morning ho said tho girl had tho  -measles. Sho got well in a week, but I've  kept that littlo church and convent in  candles ever since.  "Ono doesn't havo experiences liko that  ���������often, but just the,ordinary routine ia bad  enough. You've no idea how senseless and  annoying somo girls can bo. Sometimes  thero will not be a sercno day in weeks.  Ho two want to do tho samo things or  like tho samo things, and tho chaperon is  a candidate for nervous prostration before  -she has had the party out for a -week."  "Is it always ljke that?" queried tho fat  little woman sympathetically.  "No, indeed. I've had years that were  charming and girls whom I loved, but  any one is a goose to tako the chances unless she can mako a good income by it.  She must make a liberal estimate of expenses, a very liberal one, and then, in addition to her own expenses, sho should ask  -a good bonus. When I began, my expenses  were divided among the girls, and besides  that each paid mo $200. Now things aro  arranged tho samo way, only each girl  pays mo $1,000 instead of ������200. I couldn't  ���������make so much money in any other way,  fout if any one tells you that European  chaperoning is not hard work don't bo-  liovo it."���������Chicago Inter Ocean.  __eep Minard's Liniment In tlie Honse.  GUESTS MUST  EAT CHICKEN.  Queer   Provisions   of  a  Will  ACectinjr   a  Boadhouse.  "I know of many will's in which there  are some queer - provisions," said a well  known lawyer in an . up town hotel tho  other evening, "but the most curious will  I ever heard of relates ,to a small road-  houso I visited while out., driving some  time ago. The house is on the Hackensack  plank road in New Jersey. Stopping thero  for dinner, I ordered a good meal, and  when it was served a small roast chicken  was brought with it:  0 " 'I did not order that,' I complained.  " 'I know you did not,'replied the waiter, 'but you will have to eat it.' ���������  "I was surprised, but -ato the chicken.  1 noticed that chicken was served to every  customer who ordered dinner. . Later I  asked tho proprietress why it was done.  " 'Well, you see,' sho replied, 'my father  owned this placo'for many years. He was  ���������noramatciy iond or cnicicen. ��������� when no  died, he put it in his will that whoever  succeeded him here must have roast chicken for dinner every day. In case his successor should fail to do'so for two consecutive days, ho ordered that the property go  to charity. I took the place after his death,  and'I havo been serving chicken everyday  since.  -'J'Several of the charitablo organizations that would got tho property if-tho  provision of thc will were .violated watch  mo closely. To prevent'' any basis-* fbr'an  action at law I mako all of my customers  eat chicken. Somo of them object, but  they givo'in when I insist.' "���������New York  Commercial.  Natural Reforestation. <  That'several years 'commonly elapse between thc burning and the starting of new  coniferous growth seems indicated by the  two following observations, tho first in  the canyon of the Cacho la Poudre, on a  tract that was ���������burned, according to reliable authority, in tho summer of 1881. As  examined in 189-i,' 13 years after burning,  grasses were abundant among the dead  logs, thcro wero a few shrubs and a scat-,  tering growth of pines (Pinus contorta,  variety murrayana), the largest of'which,  was 20 inches high and 7 years old. Here it  " was apparently six years after the fire that  tho first pine tree started.  The other observation was made on a  tract extending south and west from  Chambers' lake, which was burned over in  July, 1890. I passed through tho burned  district a month after the fire and was,  greatly .impressed with tho absolute desolation! No green thing remained. The  ground and everything upon it was clad  in somber black. Animal lifo was absent,  arid thero was something so oppressive in  tho desolate solitude that I was glad to  reach green timber again. A second visit  to this tract was made four years later, in  July, 1894, and it was with a fooling of  keen disappointment that I noted how  slight a change four years had wrought.  .Tho intense blackness had been subdued  in soine degree by the action of thc ele-'  ments.' Somo trees had fallen and others  were losing their bark, but tho general*  appearance of desolation remained. ,A  very few straggling plants of grasses and  sedges wero tho only evidence of returning vegetation.���������Charles S.

Dick  Groomer, of my own ago and attached to  the adjacent enemy, had been urging me  for somo months to join a young military  organization in which he wielded an almost autocratic power. One evening I induced his presence at my room and plainly  told him that he was animated by some  ulterior and unworthy motive in trying to  enlist mo. He declared with poorly concealed sarcasm a desire single to the promotion of military interests. I submitted  that the truth was not in him.  "After wo had washed up and mado the  wreckage of furniture as presentable as  possiblo tho conference was resumed. I  held a wot towel over one eye while I  glared upon him with tho other. He had  his coat buttoned to tho chin in order to  conceal his sanguinary contributions to  the'������������������'somewhat heated argument. Our  muscular controversy, seemed to clear the  atmosphere. There was a warcloud present  ���������when- he asked mo if I thought my eye  would close, and I showed .like solicitude  by asking if ho thought it possible that  any of the small bones in his nose wore  broken. But we showed the tact begotten  of mutual respect. As soon as my usually  handsome appearance had returned I  joined his command. After Dick had beaten nie out of my best girl wo became fast  chums, and he mado mo colonel."���������Detroit Free Press. -  How to Make Sardine Sandwiches.

After that one cold shiver Doctor Jack  is himself again. He still holds the frozen  ' hand that fails to return his pressure,  holds ifc while lie says in-a subdued yet  steady voice:��������� '  ' '"What does this mean, old man*?"  "That I have been a fool, doctor. 1  wish you could knock some sense into my  stupid head with a club���������I'd be glad to  have you do it' only for���������that package.''  "It's"safe yet?" anxiously.  '"I believe so, but, every   minute   that  we remain here   increases the danger   oi*  losing it." '      '  ** "What   has --happened   to   voui  man?" .   '  .- "Eh? Nothing."  .   "But your lingers are as col'd  "Are thev?t 1 don't see   how.  -Scott!" and /the .Texan   can   be  chuckling   in   the   darkness  dreadfully tickled.    -  ���������r "Speak on, Kirke.'-'     ���������    ,  -."It must be   the -dummy's hand   you  caught."3'    ,.   ._  '   "���������',,  ''Dummy!"

Reckon, some one used to  run a show, and these' are his stock-in-  trade.'

' ,  door.    .Lier/s investigate the house.-  The audacity of this plan pleases  Kirke Smith.* He chuckles over it, even  while following "Jack into the inky hall-  ,way.  '' Tit for tat. As they go out we enter  in. Eureka! Lead on, Doctor Jack," he  ���������mutters, '"aiid I'll follow even to Satan's  land."    ,    ���������  Jack gropes his way along. It will be  a strange thing' if they cannot find some  door or window opening upon the street,  by means of which they may escape.  Let the minions of Colonel Garcia and  the English lord, search for them in the  garden. Even if the dog shows them the  hall which the fugitives have entered,  they will not be   much   worse ' off. since  as  *  ice."  "Great  heard  though  "What are you doing in   there?"   asks'  Jack.  "Prisoner of war,'? laconically.  "But when you gave that man thc note  you were at largo in the garden?"  "Just so*, .Jack, my boy.     They caught  mo   trying   to   escape   soon   after,   and  sweet- hole.     I've  timo' and   all   my**  the   various  chucked iue into this  been   occupying my  matches   in  interviewing  worthies congregated here, and they're  beauties, too, I assurcyou. I shall" be  haunted all my life by some- of their  faces. Regular curiosity shop. Just when  you came up I ,was busily engaged at the  , stone mason "trade." ' 7 **  "What?"   '  "You see   the wall is very   old, and   1  . lindane mortar poor.    ��������� Already I've dis-  'lodged one stone, and another is ready to  , follow.*  -While*I talk I'm "working like a  beaver."      < (      -  "Can I help you?" nslcs ,Jack eagerly.  He admires -just such boldness in conception and execution.  "Try, to the left of tlie "window.. Thore.  you may feel tho stones move. Ah! we'll  vamose this ranch in double quick time,  bet your life."     ;  ���������  Their united work has a speedy result,  and hands, meet in the opening���������hands  with a grasp that means more than  ordinary friendship. - Doctor Jack is  naturally curious to know how all this  came about, but he asks no further questions. There will bo plenty of time for  those after they have made good their  escape.  As the prisoner has said, the mortar is  poor, and offers no resistance, so that  they are able to dislodge stone after stone  with very little effort.  * At length-Kirke declares tho opening  has reached a size that will admit of his  passage, and with that he crawls through.  "I tell you I'm glad to bo out of that  den. It's one of horrors, too, and, if I'd  been drinking freely of late. I'd believe I  had 'cm sure," and the Texan draws a  great breath of relief.  Then he cocks his   head   on   one side,  and appears to bo listening intently.  "I don't hear 'cm. but they're around.*'  "What's that?' asks Jack   a   suspicion  flashing across his mind that perhaps hi*-  friend has gone crazy.  "Are you armed, old fellow?"  "Of course: See here."  The Texan fondles thc  weapon eagerly  as though he were a miser   gloating over  his gold.  "I hope they'll discover us now. I'd be  teinutcd to shout and arouse the house,  if you only had a mate to this for mo."  "Well, I have, but don't do anything  rash. Remember, we've got a great deal  to accomplish yet, and can't afford to be  foolish:"t    .   '--���������/ --.-,���������.-.    "On your:request I'll bottle my enthusiasm jind-remain dumb," replies Kirke,  whose spirits have gone up three hundred  per cent, since; he learned that he could  keep the -weapon Jack thrust into his  hand.  "Tell me, js.'-it in this place?" asks  the' doctor, "for if so I don't mean to  leave in a hurry."  "Outside," is the quick response.  'Then come with   me,    and * I'll show  you how I entered."  They move along the face of the building in the direction, as Jack believes, of  the spot where he descended. It may not  be so easy-to get out, but where there's  a will there's a., way; and these determined men are hot the ones to be daunted by obstacles.  Thus far fortune has favored them,  but it now frowns. Loud voices are heard  in their rear, lights are seen, and the  luirking of a dog indicates that the excitement means' something. connected  with their flight.  "The goose is cooked���������they're coming, '' says the Texan, calmly, and one  could almost declare there is a ring of  pleasure in his voice, as though he anticipates a picnic in the encounter.  Indeed, the clamor in their rear has by  this time reached such proportions that  it is positively alarming. Men shout and  swear, and new lights flash upon the  scone, until it even looks as though giant  fireflies are darting hither and thither  through the garden.  "We can defead ourselves, but the  time has not- vet come.   Here  is an onen  they can put their backs against the wall  and fight.  Steadily Doctor Jack pushes on���������no  matter what the confusion outside, - he  will not risk everything by too much  speed���������at the same time he- is no laggard, j  The hall ends, but a door is found  which opens at a touch, and they discover a room in which lights abound. It  has been occupied by a number of persons, and is evidently a parlor, for piano  and pictures can be seen.  Nor is it destitute of human occujiancy  now; two ladies are seen at a window;  they lean out, and very, probably look  into tho garden, were tlie mod search  goes merrily on.  Doctor Jack, believes that in one of  these ladies he sees thc senorita who gave  him so much trouble on the preceding  night; but there is no need of verifying  this suspicon. They may slip through the  ,roo__ unnoticed. '���������  He pinches Kirke's arm to make sure  that the Texan realizes the gravity of the  situation, arid then puts a finger on his  lip to indicate silence.  After that the two men start to pass  through the room. Thero is some floor  covering under their feet, which helps to  conceal thc sound of their footsteps.  Hence, it is not any noise made by them'  that attracts" attention. . ,  Just when they are in thc ..middle of  the room one of the figures In thc window turns and the Chilian beauty finds  herself face to face with Doctor Jack.  She is taken quite by surprise, and  stares, while the American, equal to the  emergency, makes a polite salaam.  Theii he follows Kirke, who has taken'  the lead at this moment, leaving the  senorita standing rooted to, the spot. She  will not remain long in this attitude,  but turning to tho open casement will  endeavor to ' let those below understand  that the parties they seek arc even then  in the house.  Such being the situation, it necessitates more speed on their part in order to  gain an exit. By degrees Doctor Jack is  picking up some ideas regarding the lay  of the loud���������which is the front of the  house, for he believes, yes, he* is sure it  faces4 on a street at the- point where he  reached it on the wall.  A strange flight is this, and in the future they will doubtlss smile when memory brings it before their mental   vision.  At present it is a serious   business, since  those who chase them are  bent upon   visiting   their  heads of the Americans.  11 ��������� "This looks liko it."  As he speaks, Doctor Jack   comes  sudden pause in front of a window.  "It's barred," cries Kirke, in dismay,  as he notices the iron which was doubtless placed there when the house was a  convent.  "Bah!" sneers the other���������his hands  close upon one of the irons; strangely  enough they are on the inside of the  window instead . of the usual place for  such protections. It was not to prevent  people from breaking in that these were  placed there, but to keep the inmates  from breaking out.  This man takes a firm hold, and as he  utters that one contemptuous exclamation, wrenches the rusty bar from its  socket and. tosses it aside.  "Hurrah!" exclaims Kirke. ''That's  one.''  By this time his companion of muscle  and sinew has grasped a , second bar,  which he twists from its lodging with  even greater ease than the first.  "Eureka! what can stand up against  us?    One more fixes it, Jack."  "Look out, then!" says the other,  quietly.  They can hear a roar of voices in the  house, and know their enemies have been  put upon the right trail, either through  the dog's keen nose, or the senorita's outcries.  Crack!  The opening is now complete, and  Kirke hastens to accept thc, invitation it  offers; pushes his body through, hangs  by his hands, and then recklessly lets go  .without more than a guess as to the distance that-may be between his feet and  the ground. ' ,  Nor does Doctor Jack hesitate about  following the example thus set. He hears  sounds below, which would indicate that  KirKc has fallen among a number of  enemies, and this being the. case he is in  need of assistance.  As he falls he finds himself iri the  midst of struggling figures. A light is  suddenly hung from one of the windows,  and Jack blesses tho hand that thus  gives him a. chance to distinguish friend  from foe: The way in which he sails in  is indicative of his spirit. Those heads  that meet his knuckles regret the contact. His onslaught'produces consternation among them, and a temporary panic,  during which the voico of Doctor Jack is  heard calling:���������  "Make a run for it, Kirke.    Away  we  go!"  desperate men  anger   on the  to a  shoulder as uc to ma_e 5IiI_ cnsT; zis co__-  rade follows.  "We are pursued, of course?" says  Jack. ��������� i    .  "Yes, here they' come," 'returns the  other, and from the racket that arises it  is plain to be seen "that he speaks the  truth.  They would much rather- elude their  "pursuers than have a conflict,. but if it  comes to such a thing these ' men are not  the kind_to shirk their duty.  "Leave it to me," Kirke has said, and  his companion is only too ready to do so,  for the Texan is the one who knows whero  thc packet that seems so important to  their success is secreted, and perhaps he  can lead them, to it.      , -, ,  rThey, dash ' along with the speed of  sleuth-hounds on a fresh scent, and presently the gratifying news is flashed from  one to the other, that they leave their  foes behind. This can positively be ascertained by the gradually diminishing'  sounds that follow them.    '   " o  Then Kirke changes his course. In five  minutes "they are heading back toward  the quarter from whence they cam������,  though by a different route.  "Getting warm, now. Soon be al the  place," says tho Texan, over his shoulder.  Suddenly he stops,* arid puts out his  hand to stay the progress' of his'companion, i Both have been advancing at a  quick   walk,    and   now  come to a halt.  Doctor Jack, realizes that -' something  ahead has caused' ,the, change, and he  looks in this quarter to see what it mav  be.  There is a light on   the   road���������a   man  swings a lantern to and fro as he   walks.  ���������keeps it close to the ground' as - though  h'c would follow certain foot-prints lie sees  there.    ���������  '"Watch   him,"    whispers  thc   Texan,"  who appeal's able to guess a   good  many  things that develop.   ��������� , ,,  Just at this moment the man who car-,  ries thc lantern comes to a halt, turns  squarely on his heel, and- then bends  down.  '    "Well," grunts Kirke, "this is the best  of luck."       f   -  "What has he discovered?" whispers the  other. '  "That which we seek "  "But where does the good-   luck  come  in."  "'You, see, if we had come just ten  minutes later we'd have been���������"  "Ingloriously left. Of course, you can't  sec his face. You don't know who it is?"  continues Jack.  "I can guess. Colonel Garcia himself.  While his minions kept me, closely "confined, ho has been on the lookout to discover where I might have secreted the  packet. Well, he has found it, and much  good may it do him."  "Let's move closer."-'  It is good advice, since the man may  yet disappear with-the packet. So they  advance again. ..The.,, stooping man is so  earnestly engaged in , what occupies his  attention that ho does not notice their  approach.' - They are just in time to see  him lift something out from under a  stone. '" -  He laughs as he holds it up. and  scoffing words in the Chilian tongue fall  from his lips.  "Garajo! here we   have it.    The search  ha** been long, ' but  Now,    Doctor   Jack,  "laughs."  "Ha, ha!"  The Chilian officer   starts   as   if  aud, while still   bending   on   one  twists   his   head "around   to    see  whom this   cachination   proceeds,  dark face, :>s seen by the   light from the  lantern, gives every   evidence   of sudden  fear, for, as- we   havo   seen,   the man is  not one in whom   the   blood  of warriors  runs.  To his amazement and, consternation  ho looks upon the. face of 'the 'one man  he fears, the very Doctor Jack whom ho  had been deriding, and whom he has believed beaten in the race.  "Ah! Colonel Garcia, well met. You  may not know you handle my property.  I inform you of the fact. T ask you to  drop that packet:"  He says this so calmly that the Chilian  somehow conceives the idea that he has  terrorized the American; he assumes a  ferocious frown that would cause a hireling to get down on his knees and cower;  upon Jack it acts iu an entirely different  it   is ended at last.  we '"will'" see  who  shot,  knee.  from  His  termmea on revenge.  By this time Doctor Jack and his  sturdy companion will have put some  distance between themselves and the  point of danger. They lose not a second  after Garcia has gone, but endeavor to  make progress and at thc same time avoid  their enemies. ��������� ���������    ,  The Chilians keep up a great racket.  It is understood that, barking dogs do not  bite as a general "thing, and the more  noise, that is made, , the better, they are  pleased.' It gives them a pretty good  lidea ot the location of their foes, and  thus they may avoid them.  Once clear of thc affair, they head for  the rendezvous, intending to join the  dude and Avis, when, everything having  been arranged, the whole party can go  on board the steamer which leaves Valparaiso at dawn.  As they approach the place selected as  the rendezvous, Jack begins to feel anxious. Only one thing could occur to  worry him" now, and this is in' connection with Avis. , What if Lord Rackett  has followed Larry and his charge from  the hotel; and pounced upon them" with a  couple of hirelings? This would be a terrible condition of affairs. He groans as  he reflects that ho might' possibly have  managed to send Avis on board earlier.  True, she rebelled against this, but had  he been firm she would have yielded.  It is too late now, and ' regrets never,  mended anything. He can only hope for  the best, and keep up , the brave heart  that has carried , Doctor .Jack through  many a* scene'of disaster and danger.  .Evidently they have distanced Garcia  and his wolves, for no sign, of' their presence is longer heard. ,   ,  'Now they reach thd rendezvous/-, and  Doctor Jack glances around, witli a great  fear oppressing his,heart.. Avis and Larry  do not appear in sight.' He even gives a  little signal that,his��������� wife -would -know,  but.there comes only the silence of despair in response. ��������� >       ' c  "Sure this is the place?" asks Kirke,  uneasily. -        '      - ,* ' - -���������-  "Positive.    I   wonder   if   Larry  could  hare maJie a mistake.  They may "ae near  by," and eagerly-he, calls out 'the   magic*  name of "Avis,", at   first. in low tones,,  and then raising his voice  until   ihe cry'  can be heard thirty feet away.   .    *  Alas! the dead silence mocks him. He  is in an agony of alarm, this man whom  danger to himself can never daunt. Even  yet'he hates to believe the "worst, but  clings-to a floating straw. 7  "If Larry misunderstood m? and went  to another place���������I" he begins.  "You're wrong. See; your '.wife has  been here to a certainty," and ,Kirke.  holds up a dainty kid glove he has found.  At this Doctor Jack groans. Then  feebly smiles as another ray of hore flashes  into his mind.   ���������  , .',-''���������  "Yes, .she's been hero. I'd know- her  dainty glove anywhere"���������kissing it   fap-  manncr.    He laughs.  CHAPTER XIII.  It is a wise move on the part of these  two comrades to heat a. retreat in the  face of so numerous a body of foes, and  the manner in which they conduct this  proves their ability to take care of themselves.  The Texan is engaged at the time the  call comes, but he fjpeedily breaks all  attachments and sunders the ties that  bind, though the parties with whom he  wrestles endeavor to prevent such a consummation by every means.  When he catches up with Doctor jack,  he finds that worth--*   u-lancinc   over   his  '"I refuse; unless you leave here suddenly you will be pulverized, sir, demolished. You forget who I am���������my reputation as a fire-eater���������"  "Drop that packet!"  "Ah! it is already done, senor."  The change in his deportment is as  radical as it is sudden, and springs from  a, fact th?*������ has a direct bearing on the  subject. Something which , Doctor Jack  holds in his hand has been brought to  "bear'upon-him. It shines in.the light  of the. lantern, and has a wicked gleam.  The colonel does not have to guess what  it is, as he has had considerable experience with just such deadly toys.  "Kirke, secure our .property. As for  you, my brave, colonel, suppose you wheel  and face the other way. Forward march !  Remember, to turn seals your doom!"  The Chilian soldier obeys. It goes  against his grain to take orders from this  Yankee whom he. hates, but when the  case is one of life.and death, Leon Garcia  is hot the man to hesitate over trifles.  Down the street he marches, with the  other keeping step in his rear. He knows  he is covered .'by the weapon that holds  six deaths, aud hencsi docs not even dare  to turn his head. There is no need���������the  tramp of feet inform him that both  American.follow. Kirke' has secured the  packet and brings up the rear.  "Halt!"  The colonel draws up suddenly, and  awaits his further orders. Chilian soldiers  learn the manual wq*j*t, and even the  officers can in an emergency prove very  docile.  "Pass down the street to the right. I  shall watch you carefully, and as long as  you are in sight you court death, if any  disturbance is made. Go!"  ��������� In one minute the colonel with long  strides has passed beyond the range of  their vision. Then an outcry is heard���������  the Chilian officer is calling his men  around him. Presently they will be  swarming about the spot where the Yankees were last seen, verv anorrv   and   rtf-  turously���������"but, you see, we're   very late  ourselves."   ' "  "That's   true,"   returns, the. /lexap,,  slowly, as though   he   docs   not   exactly  catch the meaning of his companion. / .  "No doubt they became tired."'&  "Of course."    ,  "And alarmed." '        -   *  "It would be quite natural."  ,  "Larry may have   concluded  that the  danger of   waiting   was   too   great, and  determined to send   my   wife   on board,  when he could return to meet us."'  It is singular how eagerly we seize  upon things that are only half probable,  when our hearts long to make them true.  Really, Jack is beginning to believe this  may be so, and that his wife is safe on  board by this time.  "Vain delusion.  It is Kirke again who steps upon this  hope which ho hugs to his heart. Kirke  who utters a low cry and stoop- to pick  up something his foot has touched, and  which shines in thc heavenly light like  polished silver.  "That settles it," he mutters, disconsolately.  "What havo you found?*' snaps Jack.  "Havcyou ever set eyes on such a play  toy as that, before?" demands the Texan,  and Doctor Jack, taking trie object from  his grasp, -reverently handles it while he  bravely suppresses a groan and simply  says:���������  ".It belonged to Avis���������I gave ii to her  ���������something serious has happsned. 1  fear."  Yes, something has indeed occurred.  CHAPTER XIV.  When they move away wicn ' Ghe prisoners, it certainly looks dark, indeed*  for Jack and his fortunes. Even a delay  will lose him the chance of sailing,  and this along brings new dangers upon  them from the league whose infamous  net has been spread for his feet.  "Where are you taking us?- - By what  authority do you act?" Avis demands,  facing the man- who has once been* her  friend, and even now seeks ,to win her  by force, she the beloved wife of another.  ''Have patience���������you will see. 1 am in  with' the authorities in ' Valparaiso, and  have good reason to arrest you���������" he  says, when she bursts out with:���������'  "Arrest me. Do you' mean that,-sir"?'"  "Yes, after the riot of this evening be-'  tween the Yankee sailors and the people  of, this city, an American found in the  streets, be it man or woman, is,an object  of suspicion, and subject to the order  sent out from police headquarters."/ .'  "But you/have��������� another reasoriT You  will not take me before the Intendente  Roujito."     , '    - '      ',  - He laughs even while leading'her away.,  "I confess I only tiso that excuse as a'  idoak to hide my real feelings. I want  you, Avis.' I once ' swore to marry you,  years ago, and you know a' Briton.never  gives up."   , , ���������  "You aro certainly crazy,'Lord PJymp-  ton. You- forget I am Doctor Jack's*  wife," she \ exclaims, wondering whalr'  manner of creature this man with,'the  form of an Apollo and the heart of a  Satan'must be.  ,'    "His'widow,    rather,"   he    remarks,*'  soberly, at which she catches  her breath,  and says:���������' "' '  ".You cannot deceive me.

To outwit,  this ..scoundrel   now   Larry   would give-  years of his life, or. anything he possessedl  "and cherished.        ��������� * - t. r  So they proceed in the direction of "the-'  water, much to tho surprise of the  dude.  He worries over the problem   of   how he  can get word to Jack.  It looks exceedingly, dark for them, but his nature is hope-v  ful, and he constantly expects something"  favorable to turn up.  His curiosity is aroused when they,  come in sight of the water, and the question at once arises as to thc point- of destination before them. "Milord chafes because the boat he expects to find here is  not in sight. ��������� '  '' The fellow has plenty of time to reach  the place���������perhaps   he's   above   or below.  ���������come,   scatter and hunt.    Gomez , and'  Juan remain with the prisoners.  On your-  lives do not let them go."  While   the   rest   hunt   for   the   boat,  Juan, who holds a wicked   looking wca-'  pon in his hand, and grasps Larry's arm '  tenaciously, bends his head   close   to the-  dude's ear to whisper:���������  "*enor, your Doctor Jack is rich, is he-  No blame can be attached to Larry, if  things have gone wrong. He has followed  thc directions of Doctor Jack to the letter, and, reaching thc spot appointed as  a rendezvous in safety with Avis, lias  waited there for the.coming of: the man  whose hand- guides the vessel on which  they sail.  It is just about the time when Jack  should appear that they aro:. suddenly  brought face to face with danger. Without warning several . men-..come . upon  them. The disagreeable voice ' of Lord.  Rackett sounds-in their oars, and they  realize tlv.t in some way-their presence  here has become known.  Larry 'makes-a determined' resistance  but he is set upon by a couple of wiry  Chilians, who treat him rather roughly,  determined to keep his nan "is secured,  and prevent the use of any we.ipon.  Doctor Jack's wife has Lieen. equal to  the occasion. .When; the English lord  turns upon her he is just in'time to  dodge as she makes use of the small  weapon she has drawn!; Ere she can repeat the shot he has.clutched her wrist,  and the revolver falls to the ground.  ��������� She does not cry aloud for help, though  her heart is swelling with indignation.  If Jack were only to appear, how he  would make these. cowards fly. These  men who do not hesitate to wage war  upon women.  Larry has been overcome in spite of  his brave resistance. Why they do not  /knock him on the head and I*ave him  there is strange;- but possibly they .have  cause for the dude, or it may be they  fear to let this evidence of their work le-  main behind.  It is also evident that they anticipate  the coming of Doctor Jack at any moment. The manner of the Englishman  declares this, for he seems to be on the  qui vive, and will not allow his revolver  to remain in his pocket. -  not?"  "Immensely so," returns Larry, in the  same thrilling tone, and at once begins  to believe the. chance he awaited has  come.  '' He would reward a poor - devil of a*,  Chilian soldier of fortune, if I should be  instrumental in saving his -wife?"  "Man, he would make your fortune.  All depends on our leaving this place by  morning. Let me go so that I may knock.  Gomez over the bank into the* water, and  1 will promise you anything, and see-  that you have it. too.*'.  "No. no; I could not do that. He-  would know who was to blame. I fear  the Englishman. What good would a  thousand reals do Juan Bartello, if his  life, ymys the penalty?"  7'What do you propose, then?" in agony  lest the Englishman return too soon.  "You have paper���������-pencil?"  "Yes, yes."  '���������Write a line to this wonderful'Doctor  Jack. Say 'trust the bearer fully.' Then  tell ���������'me where I may find him. I shall be  sent on a message by my. employer when  he leaves in the boat. I will bring your-  friend here."  "Heaven be praised!" mutters the little  man.  With feverish haste, he takes out .an  envelope���������a pencil. On the back of the  paper he writes as well as the lack of  light allows:���������  "Trust the bejirer. We are in milord's  hands on edge of harbor, waiting for  boat."  Then he signs his name.  There   is   no   need     to     say    "come  quickly,"   for   Doctor   Jack   will fly as  though he. had wings   when   he   receives  this lhessagjk  "Conceal that���������go to the1, place where  we were, captured���������he will come," the  New Yorker says, hastily pushing the  note in his hand.

" ' " "  ' j   ,A pretty, artistio and, luxurious corner  iii a littlo sitting room has all thc beguil-  ing charm of a bright, clean swept hoai'tb,  and such corners any woman can have for  ' the sake of n little pains and a little out-  ���������Jlay.  She and a not very accomplished car-  ipentcr can, as ono accompanying  sketch  - j shows, select a corner made by the jutting  ''of  a chimney and  tbo  opposite wall  and  I dross it most charmingly.    For a few dollars tho man of hammers and saws can fit  ���������in a series of, shelves against tho wall and  ! beneath erect a low framework on which  1 to rest a woven wire mattress.(;  j   , This is-all ho really need do, for his employer can either herself stain or paint her  shelves, arrange' her books thereon, place  | the spring bed on the frame and  lay over  [that a cotton mattress, costing some $3 or  '$4.    Thus, with  pillows, a few littlo -pic-  'tureaand a cover made of a Bellagio rug  ' sho has a divan corner that would tempt  ;the sternest to repose and good humor.  I;  "Not a bit more  expensively need she fit  'up another angle with a corner bookcase.  ��������� The virtues of-this piece of furniture have  not yet come to be properly realized, so  that on a carpenter, not a furniture.dealer,  ,'one must rely for an angle bookcase.    He  can   build  it threo or four  shelves high,  cut across tho corner with a cheap German  plate mirror measuring 3G by 12  inches,  and then  have the mistress of tho house  add   the  trimmings���������that' is, stain plain  pine shelves a warm brown or clear cherry,  out bi taste to serve anyening tnat woulo  impair tho appetite for the evening meal.

Some flowers here and there through thc  house arc, of course, desirable; a trim  maid for the door and one moro for thc  cloakroom a necessity.

Comfortable Xaclnc*.  Here is a boon for the stout women who  suffer from a surplus of hips, etc., and  ,who havo too much conscience or toe  hearty appetites to lace. Let them give  ear to the new theory of lacing their corsets by which ' too solid flesh may bo held  in abeyance and yet no harm be done physically.  Tho dressmakers havo got, this new  device from a -physician., who says to pull  o'ud your oor_eo 'aces as you now nave  them, lay the eyelet sides of tho corsets  vis-a-vis, as though to begin afresh ortho-  iox lacing, and then taking one lacer put  Ifc from beneath, through an eyelet at the  waist line-on that sido of the corset lying  at your feet. Draw tbo lacer through as  far as the top eyelet, run through this one  and lot an end 4 or 5 inches,-long project.  Now take the other lacer and pass it  through that eyelet next below (he one  where the'otber lacer first went, through  and draw it down to thc bottom eyelet,  run through and let a 5 inch end hang.  Pick up thc great length of tho first lacer  and begin zigzagging it/back'and forth  through eyelets on both sides of the twe  sections of corset ti n til an'end hangs out  opposite tho .first, end mentioned. "With  thc long portion of tho second lacer zigzag  through thc holes of both pieces of corse!  to the bottom, where an end must hang  out opposite the second end mentioned.  "When so laced up, put on ihe corsets,  hook them. * and see what will happen.-  Simply pull on the top and bottom ends ol  the laces that are not zigzagged through,  and tho corset .will first draw .in "to fit  about thc waist and ribs comfortably and  without pressure. At top and bottom,  though, whore over tho .bust and hips the  edges of the stays always project and add  greatly to tho" girth these edges will draw  in perfectly tight and flat. No discomfort  will be felt-, and so lacing her stays a  woman can reduce her hip and bust measure a matter of ��������� three to five inches. In  d")ing this"the flesh is not rolled up undei  her chin or thrust out in ungainly,lumps,  but becauso the stay is easy at waist line  and over ribs the surplus fat is gracefully  readjusted.        ,  A CORXEli DOOKCASK.  fit on either side of the mirror small and  inexpensive black iron sconces to bold little yellow candles and possibly,hang thin  light bluo silk, etirtains before her books.

The Art of Entertaining.  "What a charming socioty wo shall have  if tho day ever comes when every homo  maker feels herself.al'lo to entertain without a burdensome d'egreo of worry, work,  feroublo and oxponse! In entertaining, as  in everything i else, practice results in  facility and ease. What at first is a trying  domestic ordeal by repetition becomes ii  pleasure, a relaxation. Tho chief point  under consideration,' however, docs not  concern tho effort involved, the outlay bl  money or even thc form of entertainment  given, but, the spirit animating tho host  and hostess. If .our egotism, our vanity,  needs our graclousncss, our generous impulses and lovo of kiixl, wo shnll never  gather our friends about us unless as an  opportunity for display. : Tho man ol  wealth who receives his friends in such  spirit is but a pauper in capacity for happiness and enjoyment���������nature's law-of compensation never adjusting life's experiences to a nicety, lb is, not too much tc  say that cveryfamily ablo to "keep house"  is also able to entertain, .fricn'ds, and, sc  doing, will be the happier for it, even il  trying littlo economies are 'entailed thereby. As to this matter of .expense-' we can  mako it whab we will. The inexperienced  host or hostess is almost sure to exaggerate  every expense item in making a calculation for entertaining. ' This comes from  reckoning from the caterer's standpoint.  The hostess who invites all her women  friends to an afternoon tea or reception foi.  the first timo is quito sure to.be sorry that  6ho has not done it- before when she comes  to cast up her accounts. At this delightful  function���������grown delightful since womer.  hxivo enlarced their mental bnriznns���������it l*  The Human Interrogation Point.  Has it ever been your misfortune tc  know intimately the human"interrogation  point���������those persons who have intense  curiosity, but whose questions are not  asked for the purpose of becoming bettei  informed on any matter of importance'  They ask questions merely to satisfy idle  curiosity, and delicacy evidently is a word  unknown to them. As a rule, American  women are too good natured when dealing  with such persons. They allow thomselvcs  to bo subjects of criticism by answering  the questions of the idly curious.  It is the human interrogation point whG  always asks as to weight, age, if married  and when; if not, whether you havo evei  had a proposal. She also desires to know  how much money you have to spend, bow  many relatives you have living or dead,  with whom you associate, and why you do  not associate witb others whom you do not  have on your visiting list. One may not  have a very good reason for objecting tc  answer any of 'these questions, yet the  facts remain that tho knowledgo does not  concern tho questioner or the world at  largo in anyway; that the questions are  seldom asked in a kindly spirit, and that,  if prompt answers are not vouchsafed, the  questioner is usually quick to jump to the  conclusion that you are unwilling to reply  becauso of somo unworthy motive.  Personal affairs are not for the public,  and good breeding sets itself against questions of a private nature. It is a time foi  American women to rise in a body against  the human interrogation point. First,  they should be careful nob ; to ask' such .  questions, remembering that, although  they niay not object to publishing their  private affairs broadcast, they have nc  right to force others to do so. Next, they  should bo careful to bring up children  not to ask questions from idle curiosity.  .They should not hesitate, when they meet  the human interrogation point, to let hei  understand very plainly that she is asking  questions which do not concern hor and  which will not be answered.���������House  keeper.    "First aod Second Childhood.  There is an instinct in tho. hearts ol  women which,When wc arc young, we  think can only bo satisfied by children���������  littlo children all our own, in'whose smiles  we live, for whoso careers we fashion oui  days. But as we develop wc perceive the  maternal instinct to be something more  than a mere craving for offspring or a love  of one's own. The mother in us takes on  a larger stature. "We begin to perceive  ideals in the child, an individuality, and  as the new sense of what the mother means  is born in us thought of self and personal  proprietorship drops away and we understand motherhood to be a care, a guardian:  ship, a guidance which is not coorcive  training, not the stamping of our own  views and idiosyncrasies upon the child,  but a help so wisely directed that the  growth takes pla������e from within, the individuality having opportunity for free and  full expression.  From our experience with our own children wo grow into a wider knowledge still  and perceive that into motherhood which  is real a universal note must enter. Not  only must all children be regarded as ours  have been, but all ideals as well. Wo must  not only refrain from speaking of the  faults of our neighbor's child, seeing and  believing.in the better part with as much  care and as firm ������ fnith ns wo GTerciw. to  ward our own, out we must ta_o a dlSer-  (ent attitude toward tbe ideals in every one  (about us. "We must let those in thestrnn-  jgers at our gates have as free expression as  'those among our own have had and oui'  ^lith in them must be as strong, oven  though the unbalanced who exercise them  may some time be plunged into folly. In  the foolish mother idly sacrificing herseli  for a child we perceive tho maternal instinct, aborted as it'is. In tho foolish  woman sacrificing herself for an ideal in  some weakling of a man we aro nob always wise enough to perceivo it.���������liillie  Hamilton Frenoh in Harper's JBaznr.  Care of tho Umbrella.  In buying an umbrella you must take it  on faith, for tho most; experienced shoppei  cannot tell how it will woar. Silk of a  smooth taffeta wcavo is a good purchase  and light to carry. Gloria makes a heavier  umbrella, but it outwears any silk make.  No matter what tho material may be, however, never, keep it, strapped, except when  ib is carried. Kocping ib tightly rolled up  destroys half of its durablo qualities.  When wet, dry,an umbrella by standing it  with the handle down, so as to prevent  rusting the framework, as hp.ppons when  the water runs off tho other cud and collects at tho top.  When nearly dry do not open the umbrella >r it will stretch out of shape whilo  drying.- "Wipo off the handle when ready  to pub away, using a pieco of chamois if  thero is any silver about it. Somebimes a  blue or green umbrella spots when lightly,  web. In such a caso open ib and seb out in  tho first hard rain, the spots disappearing  whon it is thoroughly dampened. , ��������� -  ' To furl an umbrella proporly grasp' it  firmly at the' lower end of tho ribs with  the right hand, holding thorn perfectly  straight and even, and do not allow them  to twist while you shake^ out tho folds.'  Next-wrap them evenly around the'stick  with.the ' left hand and finally fasten" the-  Bbrap over a smooth, firmly rolled umbrella.  If either black silk or gloria become  spotted with mud, etc., clean with a bit of  old silk dipped "into warm water' and ammonia. If colored silk needs cleaning, do  it with a rag of the same .color and naphtha, remembering that the - latter is very  ���������xplosive. .If grease gets on'the silk, remove with magnesia,- rubbing it in- and,  allowing it to remain for 34 hours. Naphtha also'removes grease, but this liquid'  cannot bo purchased everywhere and magnesia can.���������Boston Herald.  LONDON  AND   PARIS.  A. Striking; Contest In tho General Aspect  of the Two Capitals.  The shortcoming of London as a capital  city is that ib is almosb entirely devoid of  the qualities of spaciousness and stateli-  ness. ��������� It is not so much like a capital city  as like a very large and overgrown provincial town. The few hours' run to Paris  forccs upon oiir attention the contrast between a mere town and-a capital city in  thc true sense of tho word, for in Paris we  find, in tho-flrst place, a far greater number of buildings On a large scale and with  an expression of palatial dignity. The  National gallery and Somerset House aro  tho best things wo have to oppose to the  rich stateliness oitbe Louvre' The Paris  Opera House has its faults. But compare  it with the cold commonplace of Covent  Garden theater. The "Marble arch, a pretty  design of its class, is all wo havo to set in  opposition to the stately pile of the Arc de  rEtoilc, with its grandiose if not altogether refined sculptural decoration.

HONOR SAVED   BY  A.DAY.  It Was  SOMETHING   TO  LIVE FOR.  The Working Girl's Great Chance.  "The, average home holds out a far more  comfortable! time, a moro leisurely life, a  healthier existence and' better wages, than  does tho office, store or factory to an intelligent girl or woman," writes Edward "W.  Bok, of "The "Workine Girl's .Great  Unaiioe,*" m xne ladles' Homo .journal.  '���������'The same timo devoted, for example, to  the study of shorthand or typewriting, if  given to thestudy of nursing or domestic  service, would mean twice tho income to a  bright,' steady girl. Unfortunately, girls  will not see this', and thousands of them  who aro today struggling through an existence in the outer world could have far  moro comfortable -lives and better wages  In excellent homes. How the average girl  can deliberately shut her eyes to thc opportunity which fairly glares upon her as  a good maid, nurse, companion or domestic of any sort, passes average comprehension. There has never been a time when  mistresses were readier or moro willing  to pay good wages for good domestic service���������wages compared to which the pittance  paid in shops or factories sinks into insignificance. \And, on the other hand, the  salaries of women in business, as recent  statistics plainly show, aro gradually on  the decrease because of tho willingness of  hundreds of girls to work for a mere pittance. Every business house has today-  waiting lists of scores of hundreds of applicants, while hundreds of homes cry out  i'or intelligent domestic service."  The Value of Tact.  Economy in woman is genorally pleasing to the husband. Hcnco it is well to  mention incidentally the prico of various  household'supplies as cvidenco of knowledge of expenses.: This should not be done  too frequently, as it may awaken a spiribof  inquiry which may provo annoying if  carried too far. It is never wise to inquire, on the other hand, into tho personal  expenses of the husband who is being  managed.  7 Creature comforts having been well considered and supplied, the discreet managor  will begin to mold-the opinions and direct  the desires in the wished for directions.  Contradiction is sheer folly. "Never  contradict'' is a motto emblazoned on the  creed Of every successful woman manager.  Tho'next step is to never lead tho husband  to contradict. This is a nice point.. Definite statements are to bo avoided. It ia  dsubly difficult to effect a change if any  decided stand has' been taken. In this  field tact and intuition are invaluable  Always lead tho husband to believe that  tho initiative, the suggestion, comes from  him. If this can bo effected, tho family  will tread a path of roses. If this condition is continually kept in mind, it can,  beyond question, bo finally accomplished.  ���������Exchange.

The  , horse was in fine fettle, and tbe ride was  begun with a dash that attracted the attention of all beholders.

A moment later the dashing rider  lay, probe',upon .tho^ground, his clothes  -vtornrand bimsfelf* apparently suffering ?e- ���������  verely from the sudden contact of his head  1     against a jagged pile of stones.

Tho minister, received his guest  hospitably, of courso, when tho accident  . was explained, and tho girl's mother bustled about to make somo simple applications to tho horseman's hurts. While his  bruises wero being attended to young Van-  dcrbilt and the minister engaged in conversation on somo topic of the day, in  which tho mother and tho daughter joined,  nnd. all forgetful of his horso, the unexpected guest remained the evening  t through. When ab last ho toro himself  " "away, ho thought ho had never been entertained more pleasantly in his life.  Of course ho was invited to call again,  and of courso ho accepted the invitation.  In fact his calls at the modest parsonage  woro exceedingly frequent from that timo  on, and it was not many weeks before ho  decided sooner or later to ask a particularly important question of tho girl who had  lrightencd his horse, and then another of  hor father.  Ib was nob until bho following July,  however, that ho was able to muster up  enough courago to put these interrogations.  He may not have boon a worker in that  field bofore ho mob Miss Kissam, bub ib is  of record that tho following July he acted  as superintendent of tho Sunday school  connected with hor father's church, and  that the entire school went somewhere on  a picnic in that month.  Miss Kissam was a teacher, and both  tho young folk wero naturally kept pretty  busy all day long.  Bub somo timo before tho closo of the  day they found it possiblo to take a quiot  stroll together afar in the groyo where the  picnic was hold. When thoy. had gob away  from the others, young Vanderbilt stammered out his 6tory and askod his question. After tho story had been listened to  and tho question answered in tho way ho  wished lib, took from his pocket a keen  bladcd"ponknifovancl with it carved an inscription in'tho'7smooth: bark.of a maplo  tree. ��������� This inscription read: "Mr. and  Mrs. William H:'Vanderbilt."  Ho had cut ib jusb bo sob how ib would  look, and its appearanco was so gratifying  ./to bobh the'"young folk'that they remained  to gaze upon it long enough to worry tho  other picnickers about their absence and  7 cause the sending of'messengers to find  them.  Tho question that yet had to be put to  ���������the clergyman, too, was answered as the  young man desired, though perhaps with  some hesitancy. Possibly this was in part  because of the young man's rather slender  financial prospects, for, though his father,  the commodore, was already quite well to  ���������do, William H. had his own way to make  in tho world and was known to be somewhat in disfavor ab home.  Asalltheworld'knows, the young bridegroom's subsequent career was such that  the bride's father had no cause to regret  the match because his daughter had married a poor man, for he became the richest  man of his time. But tho pleasantest feature of it all was that, no matter how much  William H. Vanderbilt may have merited  some of the criticisms showered upon him,  his long married lifo with the clergyman's  daughter was nob marred by a single dis-  cordanb nobe.���������New York Press.

Tho redheaded man made a shot.  "Here," shouted tho little man. "that  was a push shot, and they don't count."  "What's that!"' inquired tho redheaded  man, glaring at his diminutive friend  rather savagely. r  "Push shots aro barred, I said."  "Barred,    hey?    Well,    who   in   blazes  barred 'em?"  "Why, they arc barred in tho rules."  Tho redheaded man  thumped  hjs cue  down vigorously on the floor and with  a  contemplative expression demanded, "Who  made tho rules for this'game anyhow?"

"Then I want you to distinctly understand that I'm an American citizen, a  dweller on freedom's soil anda believer in  home industries and all that sort of thing,  and I don't proposo; to recognize no rules  made by any foreigners.

G. Ramsay, in moving the adoption of the report, said :: ���������  The directors' report and the annual account and statements have for some  days  been in your hands, and have now been taken as read.    "While the report is brief,  it.  contains", I think, along with the various published accounts, all that is required to  enable those interested in the company to judge of its progress  and success-in  the-  past year.   The addition during 1897 of nearly half a million dollars to the surplus ^or  profit fund is a large and satisfactory one, and without invidiously comparing it with  the figures of any other particular com pan y, I may say bhab ib was more bhan was attained by all the other Canadian companies combined.    The new business of the year  was, you will observe, of satisfactory and gratifying amount, and in excess of the  previous year, and you will be pleased to know that it is of that desirable class which  will result more to the profit of the company thau would- a larger amount obtained  at heavier expense, or from less desirable-regions thanthe healthful climate   of-Can- ...  ada,,and the _aur.-Northeri_ States to*which, we-have tbus far..deemed .it judicious--to *i.  confine the operations'of the company.   The existing assurances are $72.719,555,*'or  nearly twice as much as they were twelve years ago.   The death claims of tlie  year ,  continued of very favorable amount, and being well within  what was calculated  upon, that fact testifies to the care observed in the selection of i-lie lives,  and to  the  judicious limitation of the business to the healthful climates already alluded to.'  The recent lamentable failures of some of the compauies doiug business on  assessment system, and the anxiety felt as to the others which are based upon-  same fallacious principles, lead nie to point out that these occurrences are only  inevitable results which were from the first predicted by bbose whose knowledge  experience enabled them to judge of what the future of companies* of this kind might  be.   At our meeting in 1S87, when concerns of this kind were making sbrenuous"en!6rts  to establish bhemselves iu Canada, I alluded to the miserable failures they had  been  in England and in America, and I said that bheir "ephemeral existence indicates how  useless the assessment S3*steni of assurance is as a family provision.   It can only offer  the uncertain hope of a cheap assurance for a few years,  till the company   breaks  down.    It cannot afford any guarantee that a definite amount of assurance will  cer-  ��������� tainly be paid to a widow or children after an assurer's death, whether that occurs at  ' an early day or a distant one, aud without such a guarantee as that,  which our own  'and obber sound companies offer, life assurance musb be a fraud and >a delusion."    I  added that "-I'was'aware that agents and managers of companies of bhe kind  poLubed  , to the names of prominent business aud professional men who have joined them; or  who act as their directors, but as some of them at all events alloiv their names to  be  employed in that way, simply because policies have been gratuitously given to them,  oue can judge how little weight should attach to the names   of the. gentlemen  thus  used to decoy others to join such companies."   One cannot envy, the feelings of  the  prominent gentlemen alluded to who induced persons to take * policies in companies  of the kind, from which they are now driven out by their failure, or by thc levy of  such high'payments as they are unable to meet.  As the accounts show, tho year's income wasfwithin a trifle of three million dollars, and the assets of the company were increased to the very considerable amount of  nearly nineteen million dollar**, and yielding, after deducting liabilities of every kiud,  1 a net srpulus or profit of 81,554,082 for allocation at the end of next year; along with  whatever addition there may be made to it between now and that time, aud as the  management and other expenses by w-hich the profits of policy-holders are very  largely influenced continue to be of a more moderate percentage than that of any  other Canadian or American company the prospects for our assurers are of a favorable character. >  ,f 1  "i  Well Behaved Norwegians.
