Forms.  Mr. Geo. Rue, Colleucor of Cu.-rtoi.n8. has  received ofSoial notification of aovaial important changes in the wintry procecduce of  merchandise encored for customs duty. 'The  Customs Department wir,h the alleged intention of malting, the entry' proceedure  ca-iior and simpler, has determined lo make  a complete revolution in the form of oatha  required to be made by tho importer, , and  also by the exporter at the, place of shipment or mauufacture. There is a pretty  clear indication that the change has the  double purpose or obtaining more reliable  values of. the imported articles and thus insure the more equitable payment of custom  duties. '  The following is a brief outline of the  principal alterations, and which, will come  into operation with the opening of tho' year  1399, af:er which , the ,present forms of  oaths cannot be accepted :  Under the, form of oath at present required to be mu.de by importers on making  entry of goods, importers have to swear  that the invoice presented at customs exhibits the fair market value-of the goods for  home consumption in fcb.3 country whence  exported, which is the standard of value for  duty purposes in Canada, while in many  cases the invoices are based upon special export prices, aud do not represent the fair  market value. To meet such cases, and to  make the oath fairer to the importer, it has,  beon deemed advisable to make a change iu  tho form. Under tbe new form, the importer will be required to declare that trie  invoice pre&cntea at customs fairly represents the transaction, and that the value  shown on the eutry [not on the   invoice] ex-  ^ ' -t  hibiijo the fiir market value   of   the ' goods  whet sold - for  home   consumption   in   the-  , ... - ^..  country of export. Importers being required to endev their goods at the value a-i  sold in the country of export, it is of course  neced3ary for them to declaie that such  value is the value they have stated in the  entry.  The department, in addition to  this,   has  prescribed a new form of   certificate   to   be  made by exporters  on   their   invoices.    At  present all the exporter has to do is to write  the   words "certified correct"   on   the   invoice and subscribe   to   them.    Under   the  new regulation he will be required  to  certify thaii the iuvoice ia true, and  correcn.   and  that where there h a difference be'.vveeu any  of the prices shown therein   and the   ordinary credit prices at which the same  articles  are now sold bona iide by   the   exporter   in  like quantity and condition   for   consumption in the couutry   of   export,    the   latter  prices are shown on   the   margin   or   else-  wh< re   on   the   invoices.    This   certiiicate  does, uoc apply to goods sold for  entry   un-  d-tr t'-.e preferential   tariff   until   otherwise  .^i.ti r.- J, nor does it apply to gooda not   he-  n;^ inerchaninsv, free good*, or  gocrls   _,ub-  jeut for a 3poc:lie duty.    Is is  intended   to  ���������joirui into operation   on   .January   1,    IfOJ.  It wouki he r/oll for business   men   to   take  eognizvico of this und draw the   matter   ^o  the attention of the foreign merchants   from  wli-m th������y purchase, so as to   ensure   compliance with    the   requirements.

Instinctively sho placed hor hand  upon tho pocket holding tho littlo pistol.  Twenty-five miutes; what ii' hor messenger should fail her;-1 And that card had  clearly stated "oilico hours, three to livo. "  Twenty-six; oh, how slow���������twenty-  seven; had *tho clock stopped? no;���������  twonr.y-eight���������nine���������half an hour.  Where was Honry?  She felt a giddiness creeping over hor;  how close tlio air was. Hor nerves wore  at their utmost tension ; another strain  upon tho sharply strung chords would  overcome her. , She felt this vaguely. If  she should be baffled now! She could  take fresh heart, could nerve herself  anew, if aid came to her, but if he  should come sho feared, in hor now half-  frenzied condition, to he alone, she was so  strangely nervous, so weak 1  How plainly she saw it, tho face of  Clarence Vaughau. Oh, it was a good  face! When she saw it again sho could  rest. She had not felt it,before, but sho  did need rest sorely. -  Thirty-live minutes,���������oh, thcy'had been  hours,to her; weary, weary time !  How many a sad watcher has rocki n id  the flying moments as crcoping hours,  while sitting lonely, with heavy eyes,  trembling frame and heart almost bursting with its weight of suspense���������waiting.  Forty minutes���������and a footstep in thc  passage! Her heart almost stoppod beating.    It was Henry."  "I had to wait, as he was busy with a  patient," said he, apologetically, handing her the letter she desired.  .Madeline   tore   open tho missive   with  eager lingers, and read:  Miss Madelino W. :  Thank you for your faith in me. I  will meet you at tho place and time appointed. Do not   fail   me. . Respectfully,  C.  Yaughan.  .  She drew a long breach of relief.    '      .  "Thank you, Honry.  Now I'shall leave  this place;' promise mo   that you will not  toll your master   where I went, or   how-  Will you promise?"  "Iwill. miss," said thc man, earnestly.    "Is this all I can do?"  "If you would be my true friend���������if I  might trust you, Homy���������I would ask  more of you. But I should ask you to  work against your master. Ho has  wronged me cruelly, and I need a friend  who can serve mo as you can quite easily.  I should not command you as a servant,  but ask you to aid mu as a truo friend,  for I think your heart is whiter than his.''  And Henry was won. Starting forward, ho exclaimed:  "Ho treats me as if I were a dog; and  you as if I were whito and a gentleman !  liot me bo your servant, and I will be  vory faithful; tell mo what I can do." .'  "Thank you, Henry; I will trust you.  To-morrow, at noon, call at Dr. Vau-  ghan's office and ho will tell you where  you can find mo. Then come to me.  You can servo mo best; by remaining  with your master, at present; and I will  try, after I have left this place, to reward  you as you deserve. "  "I will obey you, mistress," said the  dolighted servant. "I shall bo elacl to  servo where I can hear a kind word. And  I shall bo glad to help you settle accounts  with him. I will be thero to-morrow, no  fear for me.''  She turned, and put on her wrappings  wliih a feeling of exultation. He would  como soon, smiling and .triumphant, and  ahe would not bo there ! Ho should fret  and wonder, question and search, but  when they mot again the power should  be on her side.  She turned to the waiting servant, saying: lam ready, Henry."  Ho opened the door as if for a princess.  Beforo Madelino had lifted hor foot from  the carpet, her eyes became riveted upon  tho.open doorway. ..'<���������'  There, smiling and insouciant, stood  Lucian. Davlin!     .  Madeline stood Iiko ono in a nightmare,  motionless and speechless. Again, and  more powerfully, came over.her senses  that insidious, creeping faintness; that  sickoniug of body and soul together.  It was not tho situation aloue, hazardous as it certainly was, which filled her  with this shuddering terror; it was tho  feeling that vitality had almost exhausted itself. She suddenly realized tho  moaning of tho awful lethargy that seemed benumbing hor faculties. Tho "last  straw" was now weighing, her down,  and, standing muto and motionless, sho  was putting forth all hor will power to  comprehend tho situation, grasp' aud  master it.  Like a dark stono image, Henry stood,  his hand upon tho open door, his eyes  fastened upon the man blocking tlio. way.  Davlin, whose first thought had been,  that, the opon door was to welcome his  approach, realized in an instant as he  gazed upon Madelino, that he was about  to be defied. Thero was no mistaking tlie  expression of tho face, so white and set.  He elevated his eyebrows in an elaborate  display of astonishment.  "Justin-time, I should sny, " removing his hat with mock courtesy, and  stepping across the threshold. "Not  going out without an escort, my dear?  Surely not. Really, I owe a debt of  gratitude to my fvlonds down town, for  boring 3210 so insufferably, else I should  have missed you, I fnar. "  2so answer; no change on thc faco or  attitude of tho girl before him.  "CInso that   door, sir,    and take   yourself off," ho said, turning to Henry.  Remembering   her   words,    "You  can  serve me best here,"   Henry bowed with  unusual humility, and went out. "  "I don't, think she is afraid of him."  he muttered, as he went down the tall;  "anyb'ow, I won't be far away, in case  sho needs me."  Lucian Davlin folded his arms with  insolent grace, and leaning lazily against  the closed door, gazed, with his wicked  half smile upon the pale girl before him.  Thu������? for a few moments they laced  each other, without a word. At length,  she broke tho silence. Advancing a step,  fhe looked him full in the lace and said,  in a calm, even tone:  "Opon that door, sir, and let me pass."  "Phew���������w���������w!" no half whistled, half  ejaculated, opening'.wide his insolent  eyos. "How she commands us; like a  iitile empress, by Jove! Might' tho  humblest of your adorers bo permitted  to ask where you were going, most regal  lady?" * r  "Not back to the homo I left for the  sake of a gambler and roue," she said  bitterly.  "Oh." thought he," "she has just got  her ideas awakened on this subject; believed me tho soul of honor, and nil that.  Only a small matter this, after all."  "Don't call hard names, little  woman," he said aloud. "T'm not such  a very bad man, after all. By the'way, 3  shouldn't have thought it exactly' in  your line, to order up my servant for examination in my absence."  "I am not indebted to your servant for  my knowledge concerning you, sir. I  wish to leave this placa; stand asido and  let me pass. "���������  Tlie red flush had returned to her  cheeks, tho dangerous sparkle to her  eyes; her courage and' spirits roso in response to his sneering pleasantries. Her  nerves were tempered like steel. Ho little dreamed' of the courage, strength and  power   she could pit against him.  He dropped one hand carelessly, and  inserted it jauntily in his pecker.  "Zounds; but you look like a little,  t?srress," he exclaimed, admiringly.  "Really, rage becomes you vastly, but  it's wearisome, after all, my dear. So  drop high tragedy, like a sensible girl,  and tell mo what is the meaning of this  new  freak." v  "I will .tell you this, sir: I shall leave  this place 'now, and I wish never to see  your faco again. Where I go is no con-  corn of yours. Why I go. I leave to your  own imagination."  "Bravo; what a little actress yon  would make! But now for a display of  my histrionic talents. Leave this place,  against my will, you can not; and 1 wish  to seo your face often, for many days to  como. Where .you go I must go, too;  and why you go, is because of a prudish  scruple that has no place in the world  you and I will live in."  "Tho world you live in is not large  enough for me too, Lucian Davlin. And  you and I part, now and forever."  ."Not so fast, littlo one, " he answered,  in his softest, most persuasive tone.  "See, I am the samo lover you pledged  yourself to only yesterday. I adore you  tbo same as thon; I desire to make you  happy just tlie same. You havo put a  deep gulf between yourself and your  home ; you can not go back ; you would  go out from here to meet a worse fate, to  fall into worse hands. Come, dear, put  off that frown."  Ho mado a gesturo as if to draw her  to him. She sprang away, and placing  herself at a distance, looked at him over  abroad, low-backed chair, saying:  "Not a stop nearer mo, sir, and not  another word of your sophistry. I will  not remain here. Do <��������� you understand  me?   I will not!"  Lucian dragged a chair near the door,  and throwing himself lazily into it, surveyed the" onraged girl with a look of  mingled astonishment, amusemont, and  annoyance.  "Really, this is rather hard on a fellow's patience, my lady. Not a step  nearer the door, my dear; and no more  defiance, if you please. You perceive I  temper my tragedy with a little politeness,"   ho   added,   paronthetically.      "I  the block. Turning in his promenade,  his ear was greetod by a pistol shot.  Could it be from that building? Ir  sounded from there, certainly. It was  now live minutes past the time appointed ; could.it be there was loul play;  He paused at the foot'of the stairs ir-  resol ute.  Suddenly .there was a rush cf feet ard  Henry came flying clown, tho whites of  his eyes looking as if they would never  resume their natural proportions.  Clarence intercepted the man as he  essayed to pass evidently without having  seen him.  *'Oh sir!���������Oh, (lector come right upstairs, quick, sir,"' he exclaimed.  "Was that   shot from here, my "man?"  inquired Doctor Yaughan,   as he followed up tbe stairs.  "Yes, sir," hurrying on.  "Any   people   in the   building  besides  your master and the lady?"  "No, sir; hot at this time. This way,  sir."  ' Ho threw open tho door and stepport  back. Entering the room, this is what  Clarence Yaughan saw:  Lying upon tho floor in a pool of  blood., tho splendid' form of Lucian  Davlin, one arm ��������� dripping tho rod life  fluid, tho other clasping close the form  of a beautlfill girl. His eyes wore closed  and his faco . pallid as the dead. The  eyes of tho girl were staring wide and  set, hor faco expressing unutterable fear  and horror, every muscle- rigid as if in a  struggle still. One hand was clenched,  aud thrown out as if to ward off that  death-like grasp, while the ohter clutched a pistol, still warm and smelling of  powder. ' '   '  Jfc was tho work of a moment to stop  the flow of blood, and restore the wounded man to consciousness. But lirst ho had  removed the insensible girl from Diivlin's  grasp, laid her upon a bed in the inner  room. and. removing the fatal weapon  from her hand, instructed Henry how to  appiy tho remedies" a skilful'surgeon has  always about him, especially in the city.  At the first sure symptoms of slowly  returning life, Doctor Vaughan summoned Henry to look after his master, whom  he left with rather unprofessional alacrity, to attoud to the fair patient in  whoso welfare lie felt so much interest.  As he bent over the still unconscious  girl, his face was shadowed with troubled  thought. She was in no common, faint,  and feeling fully assured what tho result  would bo, ho almost feared to seo the first  fluttering roturn of life.  At last a shudder'agitafcod her form,  and looking up with just a gleam of  recognition, she passen into another  swoon, thence to another. Through long  weary- hours she only opened her eyes  to close them, blinded with' tho vision ot  unutterabio woe; aud so the long night-  wore away.  Dr. Vaughan had given brief, stern  orders, in accordance with which Lucian  Davlin had en trusted his wound to another surgeon for dressing, and thon,  still in obedience to orders, had swallowed a   soothing   potion   and betaken him-  shall leave" the* lady and the promises entirely In your hands, as soon as the crisis  has passed. Then, as my presonce might  not prove beneficial, while I carry this  arm in a sling, at least, I will run down  to the country for a few days. My man,  here, is entirely at your disposal. Don't  spare any pains to pull her through  safely, doctor. I will look in again at  noon."  Ho rose, and went softly out of the  room, the, doctor having answered him  only by a nod of assent.  "Zounds, how weak I feel," ho ejaculated. "I hopo tho girl won't die. Anyhow, I have no notion of figuring at a  death-bed scene. So I'll just keep myself  out of tho way until tho thing is decided.  Then, I'll run down and lot Cora coddle  me up a bit. I can explain my wounded  arm as the result of a littlo affair at the  card-fcable."  Noon came, and slowly, slowly, stern  Death relaxed his grasp upon tho miserable girl, for Death, Iiko man, finds no  satisfaction in claiming willing victims,  Slowly tho lifo fluttered back to hor  heart; and because Death had yielded  her up, and to retain it would bo to lose  her life, reason forsook her.  Under the watchful caro of tho skilled  nurae, and the ministrations of tho  young physician, she uow lay tossiug in  the delirium of fever.  Nothing worsa to fear, for days at  loast, reportod the doctor. So the afternoon train bore Lucian Davlin away  from tho city and his victim, to seek repose and diversion In tho society of his  comrade, Cora.  "Sho will come out of this now, I'  think," ho muttered. "Then���������Oh 1 I'll  tamo your proud spirit-yet, my lady! I  would not give you up now for half a  million." ,  -  1 And he meant it  will not permit you to leave mc;   do you  hear me?   I will not?"  His tone of aggressive mockery was  maddening to the desperato girl. It lent  her a fresh, last impulse of wild, defiant-  enorgy. There was not the shadow of  fear in her mind or heart now. The rush  of outraged feeling took full possession  of her, and, for a second, deprived hor of  all power of speech or action. In an-  othor instant sho stood before him, her  eyes blazing with wrath, and in her  hand, steadfast and surely aimed, a biny  pitsol���������his pistol, that ho had taught her  to load and aim not two short hours before!  He was not a coward, this -man; and  rage at. being thtis baffled and placed at  a disadvantage by his own weapon,  drove all the mockery from his faco.  Ho gave a sudden   bound.  There was a flash, a sharp report, and  Lucian Davlin reeled for a moment, his  right, arm hanging helpless and bleeding. Only for a moment, for as tlio girl  sprang past him, ho wheeled about, seized her with his strong left; arm, and  holding hor close to him in a vice-like  clutch, hissod, while the ghastly paleness caused by tho flowing blood ovor-  spruatl his face:  "Little demon! I will kill you before  I will lose you now! jfou���������shall���������not���������  osca���������''  A deathly faintness overcame him, and  he fell heavily ; still clasping the girl,  now senseless Iiko himself.  Hearing tho pistol shot, and almost  simultaneously a heavy fall, Honry hurried through the long passage and threw  open the door. Oi.e glance sufficed, and  then ho rushed down the stairs in frantic  haste.  Meanti-me, Clarence Yaughan, punctual to the tisie appointed, had driven  rapidly to tho spot- designated by Madeline. He was about to alight from tho  carriage, when ho drew back suddenly,  and sat in tho shadow as a man passed  up the street.  It was Lucian Davlin, and ho entered  the building bearing the number Madeline had given in her note.  Instantly Yaughan comprehended the  situation. She had sent for aid in this  man's absence, and his roturn might  frustrate her plans. Pondering upon the  best course to pursuo, ho descended from  the   carriage,   and   paced the  length   of  self to other apartments.  Henry had summoned a1 trusty nurse  well known to Clarence Vaughan, to  assist him at the bedside of Madeline.  In tho gray of morning, .pallid and interesting, with his arm in a sling, Lucian re-appeared in the sick room. Evidently ho had not employed all of tho  intervening time in slumber, for his  course of action, seemed to have beon  fully matured.  "Sho won't be able to leave hero for  many days, I should fancy?" he half  inquired, in a low tone, sinking languidly into a sleepy-hollow, commanding a  view of the face of the patient, and the  back of tho physi cian.  "Not alive," was tho brief but significant answer.  "Not alivo! Great heavens, doctor,  don't tell mo that my miserable accident  will cost thc little girl her lifo!"  "Ah ! your accident: how was that?"  bending over Madeline.  "Why, you see," explained Davlin,  "she picked up thc pistol, and not being  acquainted with tho use of fire-arms, desired to investigate under my instructions. Having loaded it, explaining the  process by illustration, she, being timid,'  begged me to put it up. Laughing at her  fear, I was about to obey, when moving  around carelessly, my hand came in contact with that chair, sotting tho thing  off. Tho sight O.J my bleeding arm  frightened her so that I saw sho was  about to faint. As I caught her, I myself lost consciousness, and we fell together. But how will she come out,  doctor? toll me that; poor little  girl!"  "She will come out from this trance  swoon, to die almost immediately, or to  pass through a-fever- stage that may result fatally later. Her bodily condition  is ono of unusual prostration from  fatigue, ahd evidently sho has been sustaining somo undue excitement for a  considerable time. "  "Beon travelling, and pretty well tired  out with ths journey. That, I suppose,  taken with this pistol affair���������-but tell  mc, doctor, what she will need, so that I  may attend to it immediately."  "If sho is living at noon," said Dr.  Vaughan, reflectively, "it will be out of  the question to remove hor from here,  without risking her Hi'.;, for weeks to  come. If she comes out of this, and you  will leave her in my hands, I will, wish  tho aid of this good woman, " nodding  toward the nurse, "undertake tp pull  her through. It will be necessary that  sho have perfect quiet, and sees no face  that might in any manner excite her,'  during her illness and convalescence."  Davlin mused for a rew moments before making answer. He did not care  to excite remark by calling in unnecessary attendants. Dr. Vaughan he  knew by,reputation was a skilful physician. As well trust him as another, he  thought, and it rras no part of his plan  to lot this girl die if skill could save her.  In answer to his natural inquiry as to  how the doctor was so speadily on the  spot when needed, Henry had truthfully  replied that he knew the medical man by  sight, and that, fortunately he was passing when he ran down to tho street for  assistance Davlin was further convinced that he, Henry, knew nothing save  that the young lady rang for him to show  her out, and he, acoording to orders,  had obeyed.

But the idea was not carried  into effect.

The process^by which nature forms  such accumulations of silver is very  interesting. r K   (  It must be remembered , that the'  earth's crust is full of water, which  percolates everywhere through the  rocks, making solutions of elements obtained from them. These chemical solutions take up small particles of the precious metal which they find scattered  hero and there.    ,  ' Sometimes the solutions in question,  aro hot, the water having got so far  down as to be set boiling by tho internal heat of the globe. Then they rush  upward, picking up the bits of metal  as they go. Naturally heat assists the  performance of this operation.
