The  weather had been���������as some   declare���������intolerably hot, and when the   idea'   of   an  out-door ice cream   social   was breached,  it was feared a "coolness" might soon  begin���������in the weather'.    So   the   ladies   accepting the kind offer of Mr. J no.

An abundance of ice and  cream  were   procured.     Mrs.    Ben   Westwood  gave the use of her piano.    A short musical   program' was   prepared.

Kelly  j'd on the -scene with an  overcoat,  smacked of comfort.  The residence   was .well   lighted,   and  the   front  and   lawn   looked   bright  and.  fairy like with gay colored lanterns.   And  as the music "rose and swelled" and floated put upon the air, a goodly-sized crowd  gathered;   and   "there   was   hurrying   to  and fro''  smiling-faced   ladies   with   ice  cream and cake for ladies and gentlemen  seated around little  square   tables.    The  cream was excellent and cakes ditto; and  they went off much belter than   could   be  expected under the  circumstance.    Said .  one,   "I   enjoy this ice cream," putting  a  very unnecessary, emphasis upon the  ice;  "but I do wish   I   could   trade   it  off for  ��������� somef-hing  hot."     tie seemed  in    good  humour, and so did  everybody.    Everything w?s nice, and the dear ladies exerted themselves so much to please !    After  sitting awhile, and partaking of ice cream,  the chill compelled a walk, and that  prevented the chairs being occupied  by  the  same  persons   long,   and   there   was   a  chance for all  to   get   at   the   tables.    It  broke up any little sets which are  apt   to  be found at such places, and all joined in  the promiscuous march " to and fro."  Afier a while there was some' good  singing on the front porch���������enjoyable  solos from Mrs. Kenny, Mrs. Danger-  field and Miss Bertram. Then the piano  was moved into the hall, and in the rooms  on either side the terpsichorean art. was  beautifully illustrated, and it had many  devotees.  At an early hour the social and dance  broke up, everyone feeling that barring  the. weather, it was a most delightful entertainment, and financially, too, it prov  ed "the correct thing;" quite a handsome sum being realized.  The ladies of Trinity are to be congratulated, and especially is Mrs. Ed Mc-  Kirn, who initiated the affair, upon having wrested success from the elements  against it. With favorable weather, it  would have been must, complete; and  as it was, the memory of it will long linger as a pleasant dream from which we.  would not wholly awake.  Billy Blum  Last week, under the title of "The Hot  Wave" we referred to the  school  in Union, and'the .oppressive.-heat,'-,stating the  trustees ".had. escaped  ..responsibility;-'  ( with icference to closing the school )"by.  throwing it upon.. Mr.   Bennett,;'.the very  thing'they should .not  have. done. "    We  find  this  language   was  misunderstood.  We meant no reflection  upon   Mr.   Bennett for whom we have the greatest  respect.    We believed that if he  closed  the  school, no  matter how hoi it was,  some  -parents would take offence, and that if he  did not close the school, there were others  who would criticise him.  Upen the propriety ofclosmg the school there was a manifest  difference  of opinion,  as shown  by  the  fact that some kept their children at home  while  others  continued   to  send  theirs.  As a teacher of some  experience, we felt  the burden  of responsibility  should  not  be thrown upun the principal, not that he-  would not wisely use his discretion.  The other view and upon which the  .trustees not unnaturally acted, and beyond question with the best of intentions  was this: The weather is changeable; to  day very hot, to morrow cool. One of  our members is at the beach, and the others cannot meet daily to consider this  question. It is right for the school to be  kept running, the weather permitting.  The matter will he safe in the hands of  the principal, and there we will place it.. ���������  No doubt Mr. Bennett has acted prudent  !y, keeping the school together, so far as  ihe children sent enabled 'him to do so,  and closing the school during the hot sul-  ry afternoons.  The hot wave has now   past; no  harm  has been done, and so far as we know ev- '  erybody is  satisfied'    Let  us  all take  a  dtink���������of pure Hamilton Creek water.

The world's visible supply of wheat  decreased about 3,000,000 bushels last  week.  The trade returns for nine months of  the present fiscal year were $184,734,000,  , nearly ten millions better than last year.  Statistically, the wheat situation is  very 6Crong. There is a decreased of about  750,000 bushels in the visible supply in  United States and Canada, and a decrease  of 1,440,000 bushels in the amount afloat  to Europe. Taken together the total is  63,500,000 bushels, or about 32,000,000  bushels less than a year ago.  Of the 382,300 square miles which form  the area of the Paciflo   Province,   about  285,000 square miles of   these   are  wood  lands. In her timber wealth, British Columbia has almost as rich .an">asset;as in  mineral resources.    There are forty varieties of timber in the   forests   of British  Columbia.    The Douglas fir, has obtained  the widest fame of the British Columbia  woods.    Dr. Nansen, whose vessel in the  recent   famous   Arctic   expedition,    the>  "Fram." was constructed of Douglas fir,  gives to this wood   the   highest  encomi-  ums for strength and elasticity. , The red  l' cedar, is   another   famous   wood   of   the  Paciflo coast and is used chiefly as an interior material.0 The.yellow cedar is also  a staple product.    Cypress   is   grown on  Vancouver Island arid   the North  Coast.  White 6pruce finds   a   use   in wood-pulp  manufactures,    as   well   as   in   making  packing cases, of which the   salmon can-  ners use, each year, an enormous supply.  Among the many excellent cabinet woods  in the province ase   white   pine,   maple,  alder and the arbutus.    It is unfortunate  that so much of the   wood   is sent  from  British Columbia���������and   this   applies al-  ' most equally to other parts of H Canada���������  in a comparatively unmanufactured condition.  Timber suited to the construction  of  buildings,   public   works   and   other  similar uses,must?of necessity be exported  in a   rough   condition.    But   there   are  many   wood   products   which   could   be  made advantageously in Canada if manufacturers could obtain the   necessary   information of the market's requirements.  ���������-Monetary Times;  The remarkable light which has   been  brought forward in Germany and known  as the Durr light is declared to be equally  capable of use'for interior   illumination.  It is originated   by   automatic   evaporation and overheating of the vapors   from  ordinary lamp   petroleum.     The   vapors,  being converted into   gas,    when burned  yield a light of from 8,500 to 14,000 candle power.     The  apparatus   consists of a  , tank containing the supply of petroleum,  which is removed   sufficiently   from   the  burner to avoid all   danger   of   fire from  the flame.   The oil is conducted by drops  into a   burner   of   special   construction,  after the latter has been heated for about  five minutes by <means of   oil   which   is  burned In small heating  pans   furnished  with the apparatus.    Behind   the burner  from which the flame   issues   there   is a  second burner, which, after   the heating  of the pans has been   removed,   continually produces the vapors and heats   them  to a high temperature, at the'same   time  completely surrounding 'the   first burner  with a strong flame.    This   arrangement  is said to  make   the   extinction   of   the  ��������� light an impossibility, even in the strongest wind.   Fresh air is drawn in between  the burner and the external   cylinder by  the force of the flame rushing   out,   and  by using this air in the burner a  smokeless flame results on account of   the   air  supply being   heated.    The   oil   used   is  ordinary 100 proof coal oil, the consumption of which is about 1% pints per 1,000  candle power. ���������  He sat on the edge of his chair and  stared at her miserably over the top of  his teacup.  " The popularity of the teakettle and  the chafing dish in good society seems to  me a graceful recognition by women of  the charm that housewifely cares still  have for them. The kitchen is so attractive that even the drawing room cannot  dispense with its graces. A woman who  is barred out of her kitchen by a French  chef will still cling to the privilege of  using her chafing dish, and in her case  it is beautiful and significant that it  should be so, but-���������" He hesitated a  moment.  "Well?" asked she politely.'  "I don't see what, from that, point of  view, you are doing with a" teakettle.  You have injured all that it stands for.  You have found something better than  the domestic life." " .  "That's nonsense, "responded the woman of genius crossly; for her work had  not gone well that day. "Personally I  adore domestic life. In general it adds  the.element of grace to the life and of  graciousness to the woman when she-  takes up "that form of existence not/because it is the only form, but because it  is the sweetest of all."  "Those are very pretty views  pretty,"he remarked gloomily,  have not observed , that you practiced,  them.���������'.���������''��������� It isn't of any particular avail  with one's intellect to any orthodox doctrine'while one's actions are still heretic.  You have refused the things that are the  best of all."     ; ^.\': Y  "Who said I had refused them?" she  demanded impatiently. "You wouldn't  have me marry the wrong man just to  show that my views upon the woman  question ^vere conservative, would you?"  "That is an easy thing to say, but you  know you will nover - find the right one."  She looked at him���������a curious, measured, wondering gaze. There was scorn  in it, but was it all scorn? "No," she  said slowly, "I am not emancipated  enough for that. I intend to let him find  me.even though weyplay at hide and'seek  together all,our days."  "Do you mean���������would you really listen? I���������"  It was half an hour later before it occurred to him that all this was violating precedent.  "Do you suppose you can be happy?"  he implored, and then he brought up the  subject of the books in which the married woman of genius had always been  miserable.    He refrained, however,   from  "if the goods are delivered. It is possible  that happiness might be a very bad  bargain, even though I paid for it with  art."  "Ah, darling"���������he began. But she  went on: "But I shall not have to do it.  I shall have my cake and eat it too.''  "You are," he said, with sudden illumination, "something more advanced  than modern. You are she of whom we  have heard���������the coming woman."  "Ah, no!" she said softly. But he  heard her. "Whether I succeed in combining love and art or not, it seems tc  me I have arrived!"���������Exchange.  They Never Fail.��������� Mr>. S. M.

Many who have died of consumption dated  their troubles from exposure, followed by  a cold which settled on their lungs, and in  a short time they were.beyond the skill of  the best physician. Had the}' used Bickle's  Anti-Consumptive Syrup, before it was  too; late, their lives would have been  spared. This medicine has no equal for  curing coughs, colds and all affections of  tlie throat and lungs.  Police  Cruelty.  Aunt Hetty���������My! Some of them New  York policemen are fearful brutal.

Sir Joshua Reynolds needed but one  sitting when intending to paint a portrait. Sometimes he would not take even  that, but would casually glance at the  sitter and proceed to paint   the   portrait.  Galbara, an Arabian giant, who was  brought to Rome by thc E;npei-or Claudius to serve in the.Imperial bodyguard,  was 9 feet 9 inches high. Pliny says that  he was the tallest man ever seen in  Rome.  John Elwes is the typical miser of  English history- Although worth over  $2,000,000 he denied himself the necessities of ' life for fear of spending too  much money and finally died of want.  He was probably insane.  Maximin was the only giant among  the Roman Emperors. He was S}4 feet  in height and very heavily built even for  that stature. He was a Thracian "barbarian," and rose to the Imperial dignity  by military skill and ability.  Totally Deaf.���������Mrs. S. E. Crandell.

After trying various  remedies, and consulting several doctors,  without obtaining any relief. I was advised to try Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil. I  warmed tbe Oil and poured a little of it  into m3r ear, and before one-half the bottle was used my hearing was completely  restored. I have heard of other cases of  deafness being cured by the use of this  medicine."  Chicago Federation of Labor endorsed,  at the request of businessmen, the movement against department stores.

"Oh, books," said she, with an infinite  scorn. "Haven't you noticed that people  write best about things cf which they  know absolutely nothing? Do you really  mean to say that you have been influenced in this by books?"  He nodded silently. "And so  thought I did not care, and would  marry you, dear?" , ���������  "I thought so. Yes."  An adorable smile bent her lips.  "Don't you think you were rather hasty,  not to say unkind, in adopting so completely the generalization that the artist  rejects���������love and with it life?"  "But if you had heard yourself talking  of your work," he cried. "You seemed  to think art the one thing in the world.  Every word fell like a clod on a coffin.''  "Why should I not speak of art with  fervor? I feel it all, and you had not  offered me any career which I preferred."  "Ah, but do you, will you always prefer it? It is not as if you were-merely  talented, you know, to give up���������"  "Give up? But I intend to give up  nothing! I am afraid you are a little  stupid."  '' Would you mind explaining the situation to me?" he asked humbly.  "That is very easy," she said composedly. "I simply don't intend to be  unequal to the combination of love and  art."  The luminous brilliancy of this solution kept him silent, while she went  on:���������  "Those women you read about, you  know, were under the disadvantage of  not being modern when they tried to do  things. They were working against tremendous though perhaps invisible pressure. The world wasn't adjusted so as to  help them and make the solution of  their problems easy. They felt that horrible weight���������the pressure of the disapproval of the universe���������and could not  stand out against it. One has a delicious-  ly buoyant sensation���������the Lord is on our  side feeling���������that is in itself a guarantee  of success. Then, you know, we have  better health and fewer nerves than women used to have, and that makes a  difference."  "But suppose," he persisted, "just  suppose that you were to fail. What  then?"

Y., has sent out a  list of rules about butter making and  ripening cream.' He says:  The practical part.of cream ripening  1b this: Keep your vessel so that it may  ���������11 ripen evenly and  thus avoid loss in  churning.   liaise the temperature to 62  or 68 degrees and keep it "as near that  temperature as possible until ripe, and  then cool before churning.  Well ripened  cream should be coagulated or thickened.    It  should  run from a height in a  smooth stream like oil.   When a paddle  Is dipped into it and held in the  hand,  It should stick all over in a thick, evenv  coat, not running off  in  streaks  and  ihowing the   surface   of   the   paddle.  When the last drops run off  the paddle  baok into the vat, they should leave little dents or depressions on the surface,  whioh do not  close up for an instant.  Ihe cream should have a satin gloss or  fresh surface. Churn until the granules  ore the size of wheat kernels, then draw  off the buttermilk and wash  through  two or three waters, whirling the churn  a few times around. Use from a pint to  a quart of water per pound  of butter.  Have the water, at a temperature of 40  to 45 degrees in hot weather and from  50 to 62 degrees in winter, always  depending upon season, natural solidity of  the butter, warmth of room and size of  granules.    If   you do not care about  Feeding the washings, I would put some  ���������alt in my first wash water.   It will  help to float the granules better and  perhaps dissolve out the casein to some  extent   I would generally salt the butter in the churn.  Requirements for Export Sutter.  The butter should be of a uniform,  fine flavor (it need not be of such a high,  One flavor as is required in the highest  grades at home), packed solid in square  boxes, the packages to he lined with  heavy parchment paper. The butter  ���������hould be of a lighter color and less salt j yet  than is wanted in this country, and it  Concerning: Calf  Feeding-���������Creani   Ripen,  ing: and Butter Salting:.  Calves fed' three times daily for the  first month are less exposed to the dreaded trouble scours.  New method oil cake is not so suitable for replacing the fat of milk for  calf feeding.   Flaxseed is better.  Butter fat is worth more sold as butter than sold as veal.  The cow "with her ��������� first calf that is  milked but six to eight months has been  ipoiled.'  Some say that0 cows are simply machines. Possibly so, but they should not  be housed during the winter in nature's  shed nevertheless.  If 150 pounds of butter annually is  the dividing line between profit and  loss, the cow that makes 200 pounds  annually is worth twice as much as the  one that makes 175 pounds, while the  cow that makes up 155 pounds is worth  but one-fifth of the latter and one-tenth  of the former, provided' they all cost the  same to feed.  ��������� Many farmers own unprofitable cows  and do not know it. Quantity pf milk  is an unsafe guide, since quality and  length of milking period are potent  matters.  Color of milk is not a safe guide  whereby to judge of its content of fat.  Yellow milk is not necessarily rich  milk, neither is white milk necessarily  poor milk.'  If one cow returns $15 profit, two  cows do not necessarily give $30. Many  people build up herds, however, as if  the opposite were the case.  It is important that cows in milk  should have all the salt they want  whenever they want it.  One sided rations do not produce as  much butter as properly balanced rations,' neither do they produce butter of  as fine quality.  Trouble frequently arises in churning  due to improper feeding. Other things  being equal;' a varied diet results in  more and better butter than a "narrow  ration and is less likely to cause difficulties when churning the cream. We  have tested buttermilk with as much as  6 per cent of fat in it when we knew  that one cause was coarse pasture with  many objectionable,weed growths in it.  The summer feeding, a mixture of the  cereals and the legumes, gives more satisfactory results than either separately,  besides giving more produce per acre.  Corn fodder in the stook loses much  of its value when exposf d to autumn  rains.- ,..���������.'";  While autumn rye, Tape, turuips and  turnip tops may not be the most desirable foods for milk cows, they may of ten  be sown advantageously to feed the  other stock..''thus reserving the better  foods for the milk producing part of the  herd. .������������������;���������,  Ripening cream and churning it at  high temperatures results always in two  evils. First, the churning is not thoroughly done, and some of the butter-  often much of it���������remains in the buttermilk. It is not economical to feed 20  cents a pound butter fat to 5 cents a  pound veal. Secondly, the butter which  one does get is hot of as fine a quality.  The texture, flavor and keeping quality  are all injured very materially by the  practice. Moral���������-Avoid high temperatures in butter making.  Salting butter in the churn has much  to recommend it, especially in warm  weather. When the churning is finished  and the buttermilk washed from the  butter, the latter is drained for a time,  then half the salt is sifted on to the  granular butter in the churn, the churn  tilted to turn the butter over, and the  other half is put on. Then turn the  churn partly over, back and forth, to  sift the fine salt through the particles of  butter. The cover is then put on and  the ohurn given ten or a dozen complete  turns, the butter allowed to stand a  couple of hours and then worked. Two-  thirds pf the usual working will be  found sufficient. Try it. ���������Montreal  Herald.  Dairy and Creamery.  Pack your butter in tubs made of seasoned lumber. Then the staves will not  be always swelling and shrinking like  the troubled sea.  Do not store your empty butter tubs  in a place that is too damp. If you do,  mold will grow upon the outside of  them and strike in, and it will be dead  sure to give the butter a taste of the  grave, so to speak. Did you never notice  that taste upon nice looking butter?  If by any mischance mold has gathered upon your butter tubs, they must be  either thoroughly steamed or else boiled  in soda before being used again. Nothing short of this will destroy the mold  growth. It is a tiny vegetable growth  with intensely penetrative roots and a  more  penetrative flavor, which is  certain to strike through into the butter. | ^ads from the IHpylon to the marshes of  King George of Greece is   a  fortunate  man in oneway.    Never had a   monarch  on the eve of a great war so little reason  to be concerned about his capital. Athens  belongs not only to Greece,  but   to   Europe, to the civilized world.    Not   a hair  of its head, to use a threadbare metaphor  in an incorect   way,    is   likely to be injured, and the city is of no great   consequence as the seat of the national resources, for few of the Greeks who have   any  money live in Greece,   except  here   and  there a retired merchant who  had made  his fortune by snending   his   life among  less quick-witted foreigners, and   goes to  Athens to spend the evening of his   days  in   dreaming,   not,   of  his   own. prime,  but of the   prime of Greece, the dawn of  civilization.   One is quite safe in prophesying that not a shot will be fired to endanger   one   ancient   olive   tree   on the  banks of the Cephissus, one  fragment of  the ruined temple oi" Eleusis, much' less  tho   temple of Theseus,   or the   glorious  pile of buildings preserved from   the antique world on tho summit of the Acropolis, the pile ' which   culminates   in the  Parthenon.    The   Emperor William does  not love Greece, but the   Germans above  all nations have taken an interest in the  scientific excavations of Greece from , the  day   when   Dr.    Schliemann   made   the  giants' dwellings at Tiryns and. Mycene  give up the treasury of prehistoric kings.  France, except in Napoleon's curio-hunting days, has ever   been   enthusiastic, if  rash, .about historic remains.    Italy   and  England would not stand any Vandalism  on the part of   their  commanders,   and  Russia, tne only one likely to turn Van- j  dal, looks at Athens from the   interested  point of view of a residuary legatee.  Besides, all the world has had . an awful lesson with regard to the  antiquities  of Athens.  Two thousand years and more  the Parthenon stood in all its   matchless  perfection; its   present  wutiliated   glory  dates only   from   ,1687, when   Morosini,  the Venetian, was laying seige to it. The  Turkish defenders had stored   their pow-  M* in vfrv  Parthenon  4u_  it axplodci,  just as   another   powder' magazine had  exploded in the Propylsea 81 years before.  Tt is not known   if   the   e^p&sigo   VfQ#  ansed by a Venetian bomb!   I   hope   it  was, because I have in my   possession   a  bomb weighing   three   or   four pounds,  evidently, by   the   state   of  the iron, of  great age, which I picked up when' they  were   excavating   on   the   Acropolis   in  1887, 200 years after that most disastrous  of explosions.   It   is more the shape of a  truncated pear than'round, and   the hollow in it is hardly big enough to   hold a  penny bottle of ink.    But   it   would   be  pleasant to think   that', one possesed the  fellow of that historic bomb.    I picked it  up myself; the guard did. not think that  the fragments   of   shot���������of   which there  were a good many���������were of the least interest; and, in fact, pressed them on me.  He was there to   prevent   people   talcing  sragments of antique art or architecture.  He had no instructions about such   comparatively modern matters   as  the  wars  of the   Turks;    indeed, his   Government  had only a little before   taken   down the  tall mediaeval Turkish   tower   so long a  landmark at the gates of the Acropolis.  Athens is protected from the, assault of  civilized nations by the fact that   nearly  all its glorious momurnents are on, or in  the neighborhood of, the   Acropolis,   the  fortress of Athens from prehistoric times,  towering as it does   300   feet   above   the  city.   It is, of course, not fortified at pres-c  ent; but, in   their present  excited   condition, the very thing the Greeks   might  be most likely to do would   be hurriedly  to fortify it, and (at  as   small, a loss of  life as possible). see the modern kingdom  of the Helenes go down amid irreparable  ruin to the   monuments of the old Greek  glory.    The Greeks are so melodramatic  The Acropolis has probably suffered almost as much from forticflatibn   as from  sieges.  The beautiful little Temple of the  Wingless   Victory,    made   wingless   that  Victory might not be able to   fly  away,  stands as a monument to   this  fact.    Iv  was rescued   bit   by   bit  from   Turkish  bastions, and only   put   together   in our  own day. Apropos of wingless Victory, I  may \ mention that the   Winged  Victory  (it was a winged Victory,   that   stood in  the hand of the   great"  image  of Athena  which was the masterpiece of the world's  greatest sculptor) was   the   prototype   of  the Christian   angel.    There   are   many  representations of these   winged   Victories,    hardly   distinguishable    from    the  angels of Christian art, long anterior   to  the Christian   era.    The   angel   was, of  course, part of the Jewish creed as   well  as the Christian; but   there   could   have  been no representation   of   angels before  the   Christian   era,    because    the   Jews  shared   the   Mahommedan   objeotion to  having any kind of   image   pictured   or  sculptured in their worship.    There   is a  curious   example   of   the  Mahommedan  objeotion to images in the   great Mosaue  of Santa Sophia at Constantinople, where  the huge figures of angels whioh adorned  the Greek Church of   the   Holy   Wisdom  have been altered to bunches of wings.  It will, perhaps, be best to devote the  remainder of this article to an enumeration of some of the priceless monuments  of antiquity whose presence at Athens  would prevent the indignant powers firing one shot against the holy city of literature. Above all rises the vast rock of  the Acropolis, crowned by the Parthenon.  But the Acropolis contains much that is  worthy to stand beside the Parthenon,  built, though the Parthenon was, at the  instance of the greatest Athenian, Pericles, in the zenith of the glory of Athens,  by her greatest architect, Ictinus, and  adorned with sculptures by the sculptor  who has never been equalled, though  2,000 years of time have passed since  PhidiaB was carried to his grave, a grave  that may yet, perhaps, be discovered in  the streets of white marble tombs, which  the Ceramicus.  There is, for instance, the  glorious    Propylsea,   the   world's   finest  porch,    guarding   the entrance    to    the  Acropolis, and the   most  revered  shrine  of the ancient city, the temple of   Ahena  Polias, the goddess of   the   city,   part of  the  building   popularly. known   as  the  Erectheum.  The so-called Erectheum consists really of three temples,   and   beside  it has been laid bare a  building   of still  greater interest to the arohjBoelogist pure  and simple, the house of King Erectheus,  built in so-called, Pelasgian   times, Erectheus or Ericthonius being the Romulus  of Athens.    It was he who was   judge in  the competition between   Athena   (Minerva) and   Peseidon   (Neptune)   for   the  patronage of Athens. Neptune struck the  rock with his  trident,   and   produced   a  horse,    and   incidentally   a   salt spring,  which still exists to show that the   story  is true.    Athena produced   an olive tree,  which was shown in the adjoining temple  throughout classical times, and Erectheus  gave the award in her favor, a judgment  that   would   have   appeared    prejudiced  in our eyes   if   he1' had   not been handicapped by the fact   that  Athens was already, or   was going to be,   Athens, and  that to have anybody but   Athena as the  patron of Athens (Athenai)  would   have  been very, clumsy.    I;i   the   Erectheum  were'  concentrated   the   most important  memorials alike, of the   religion   and the  history of the Athenian State. "  Beside the quartette of world-famous  buildings on the Acropolis there' is a  museum containing treasures of sculpture, which are in no whit their inferiors,'  for, in addition to the sculptures 'of  Phidias removed from the Parthenon for  preservation, there is a hoard of ancient  statues, discovered between ten and  fifteen years ago, which are of the very  highest interest, whether viewed from  the point of history or viewed from the  point of art, for they were thrown down  and buried under the ruins of the citadel  in the day of Marathon or Salamis.

Commander of the Joint  European Float  in Cretan Waters.  Admiral Napoleon Canavaro, the naval  .officer in command of the joint European  fleet engaged in the blockade of Crete, ia  | one of the high / officials   of  the   Italian  ' navy and one of the most   efficient  com-  :' manders   afloat.       Although   a   trusted  1 officer under the   government   of   Italy,  Ithe admiral is not a native of that country.    His father is the owner   of a  large  sugar plantation near   Lima,   Peru, and  it was there that he was born.    When he  was a lad his father   sent   him   to Italy  for his education,   and   he   entered   the'  navy as a youth.    By   hard work, attention to duty and   innate capacity, Canavaro rose through   all  the  grades in the  ADMIRAL CANAVARO.  vJto~I.r������f������_f. ������  or Theseus, alik  serivce until he reached his present high  position. He is just 59 years old, and it  was owing to his seniority that he was  chosen by the admirals in Cretan waters  to command the combined fleets. Cana- ���������  varo has seen some good service in 10x9  Italian navy. He passed, with credit  through the wars of 1S59, 1860-1 and  1886, and was in command of the Cris-  toforo Colombo on that'ship's noted voyage  of circumnavigation of the, globe. - T_#  Canavaros are a distinguished South.  American family. He has one brother  who is the Peruvian minister to Italy.  ! Another brother was ?eruvla_ Btloistv  at Washington for three years , not long  ago, and returned to   become, vice-presl-   . ���������           x.��������� 'dent, feut was stopped by   a   revOlUHO-t<  ike   the   oldest"_u<f "m"dSt JGen-; Cafiavarp, father of the family, waff  perfect of the temples of  Athens,   which  lies at its northwestern foot; indeed, the  only objects of. the ��������� highest  importance  in the way of classical art at any distance  from the Acropolis are the vast but ruinous temple of the   Olympian   Zeus,   and  tbe street of exquisite tombs dating back  to the sixth century before Christ, which  runs past the marshes of Ceramicus���������and  the railway station.   'As far as I remember, the discovery of   this   street,   whioh  was quite recent, was due to   a  railwafr  cutting or something of the'kind.   Right  against the Acropolis lie three objects at  least of superlative interest  and importance���������the theater of Dionysos,   the Pnyx  and   the   Areopagus.      The    theater   of  Dionysos, repaired   in   Roman   times, a  hundred years or  so   after   the   birth of  Christianity, is yet very much as it must  have been when it was   crowded   by the  j aesthetic citizens of Athens to see a play  of -Escnylus founded on the   lives of the  heroes of the previous great  struggle between the Greek and the   Asiatic, whioh  had raged round   Troy   instead   of their  own devastated city.    The men <who saw  the plays of Aeschylus were the men that  had seen and fought the Persian invader,  who is no doubt on this very   day   being  made to furnish a parallel   to   the   Turk  by every newspaper in Athens.  Right under the Acropolis are the  Odeon of Herodes Atticus, a kind of  ancient Greek Albert Hall, the preclnot  of ���������Esculapius, and the Choric monument  of Lysicartes, famous alike as being the  earliest known . example of Corinthian  architecture and as being a haunt of  Byron���������the poor Greeks still know it as  Byron's study. Whilst under the other  side of the Acropolis is the exquisite  little tower known as the Temple of the  Winds, the model of the ancient Italian  baptisteries. *  I can only allude to the 'porticos of  Hadrian and King Attalus, and the  stadium where the games so dear to the  Greeks were held.���������Douglas Sladen.  ,, The Sufficiency of _ife.

A painful story comes from Lin Ohiog  Chow,    China,   concerning    the   serious  embarrassment of a public official in that  district, and the result   of   his efforts to  extricate himself will   be   awaited   with  great anxiety.    A   few   months  ago the  village of Chien-Chuang, in the   interior  of China, was raided by   brigands,   who  broke into several houses,   oqnfiebated   a  large amount of property and did   much  other damage.  The taotai of that distrlot  commanded Lo Feng Tsi,   a . looal  man-  darin, to use his   best   efforts   to   deteot.  and capture   the gang/which was done.  The mandarin was then directed   to execute the leader and bring his head to the  taotai at Lin Ching   Chow   as   a sort, of  voucher that the work had been properly  done.    Lo   Feng Tsi carried out his' 'Instructions   and   started   for  Lin   Ohing  Chow with the   head   of   the   bandit In  charge   of   his   yayi,    or   orderly,    who  wrapped it in cerements of   cloth so that  it might have the appearance of an ordinary bundle, such as the   natives   are ae-  customed to carry.  Arriving at a village about midway of  his journey the mandarin stopped for rest  and refreshments; likewise the yayi,  who left his bundle in the room which  had been assigned to him and started eat  to call upon some friends. But, ales,  when he returned he discovered, as may  properly be remarked, that he had lost  his head. That is a frequent misfortune  in oriental countries, but it is unusual to  lose a head that belongs to. another per- -  son. The town was searched, every suspicious person was arrested, but the unhappy mandarin up to the last adrlees  had not been able to recover the precious  package.  The taotai, like other Chinese . magistrates, lacks the sense of humor, and he  does not see anything funny in these extraordinary circumstances. On the contrary, he believes, or pretends to believe,  that the mandarin, Lo J7eng Tsi, has  been guilty of gross negligence and lack  of respect and should be punished with  the severest sort of penalty. He has given  him a certain length of time to recover  the missing head, and if he fails to do  so he will undoubtedly be compelled to  offer his own to supply the vacancy.���������  Washington Post.

TUESDAY,    AUG.    31st,   1897,  THE RO_" PtOAD  There are portions of the road built  'from Union to Roy's which are fairly  good; bin there are other parts which do  not constitute a decent trail. The old  corduroy forms stretches which are so  narrow that, teams cannot pass, so rough  that horses must be walked over, and of  such rotten timber as to endanger the  limbs of animals.  THE T'RTJ_f3_   BO AD  PBEMEEB ASKED TO VISIT US  This end of the Nanaimo���������Comox  trunk road is in some sections but little  better than a cow trail. The building of  the bridge over the Trent liver is just  money thrown away, for the simple reason that there is only a trail leading to it,  which is utterly unfit to drive a buggy o-  ver. Union Bay, which is our outer-  wharf, is closely connected with Union in  business and is but nine miles distant.  It has a hotel, two stores, *oo coke ovens,  more building; has applied for a school;  and is the shipping point of the' Union  Colliery Co. We have a r;glu to a good  wagon road to it. Such a road wwuld be  largely used, but a trail is an abomina  tion. And to make matters worse instead of improving the  trail   and mnki:5������  it into a road, tenders are c?!lcd to extend  the trail.  The opening of n good road to Nanaimo should and would be the means of  greatly strengthening ihe present Provincial government in this district which is  chafing on account of its isolated condition and want of adequate mail service;  but owing to tbe miserable way this so-  called road has been constructed, and  other grievances, real or fancied, the peo  pie have'become so irritated, that what  was a safe district has become so doubtful that il will require these grievances to  be quickly abated, and a little more consideration"'given to the wishes of the people, or it will be no use.Lo put a government candidate in the. field at the next  election.  This is the third year money has been  placed m the estimates for the construc-  t on of,the Nanaimo���������Comox trunk road  y~t we are but very little better . off than  when work was commenced. How not  to do it appears to be what is striven after. Instead of commencing at this end  and building a good road as far and as  fast as practicable, work was begun at in -  termediate points, so that no part has  been available, and simply trails built!  The government is  respectfully  asked  to send up some competent person to examine this end of the trunk road, and report upon   its   condition.    In   the   mean  time  Premier  Turner  would   do well to  make a visit to this   district.    He   would  be sure of a good  reception,  and   would  be able to  learn   much of the actual condition of things   here  of which   we feel  sure he must now  be  ignorant.    Doubtless he desires to do whatever he reasonably can for the best interests of this district.    He can best   aid  us  and the government of which he is the head by a visit among ns.  vigorous treatment.  We are glad lo notice the papers are  demanding a training school for teachers.  We gladly join in thai demand. The legislature should provide for one next winter.  If there are to be any sports in conec-  tion with the Fair al Courtenay, a committee should'be appointed at once, and  a program prepared. The gate receipts  are an important item.  The Comox Agricultural and Industrial Association will hold its Exhibition  this year at Courtenay, Oct. 7lh. The  prize list is out, but offers of any special  prize' will be dulynoticcd m these columns  We notice a farmer's dinner is to be  given in connection with the Fair at Chil  liwhack. An annual dinner would be an  nppropnaie feature here.aflfoi-ding ���������n opportunity for social   intercourse   between  members and visitors.  It is leported the U. S. and Canalian  governments will unite to . give a good  maii service to the Klondike. At present  if one wishes'lo send a paper it will be  best to enclose it in a large envelope  and pay letter postage.  Those interesting people who condemn  ed the E. & N. railway policy as lo miners and yet defend the Yukon regulations  have queer notions of consistency.. If  the latter are justifiable, the comtnny'.s  policy in regard lo its private pYoperty  appears liberal lo the verge of prodigality  by comparison.���������Colonist.

CONAN DOYUS.  (CONTINUED.)  Uur course now ran down JN'ine Ji'lms  until we came to  Broderick and  Nelson's large timber yard, just past the  "White   Eagle tavern.    Here the dog,  frantic with excitement,  turned down  through the ��������� side gate into the inclos-  ure, where the sawyers were already at  work.    On the dog raced through sawdust   and shavings,   down   an  alley,  round a passage,   between two woodpiles, and  finally, with a  triumphant  3relp, sprang noon a large barrel, which  ,'  still   stood upon   the   hand-trolley on  which   it   had' been   brought.     With  lolling tongue and blinking eyes, Toby  stood upon the caBk,  looking from one  to the other of   us for some sign of ap-  ,"   preciation.    The   staves  of the barrel  and   the   wheels of   the   trolley were  smeared with a dark liquid,- and the  whole air was heavy with the smell of  ���������  creosote.  Sherlock Holmes and I looked  bla'nkly at each other, and then burst  simultaneously into an uncontrollable  fit of laughter.  CHAPTER VIII.  THE   BAKER   STREET IRREGULARS.  "What now?" I asked. ' "Toby has  lost his'character for infallibility."  "He acted according to his lights."  said Holmes, lifting him down from the  barrel and walking him out of the  timber yard: "If you consider how  - much,creosote is carried about London  in one day, it is no great wonder that  our trail should have been crossed. It  is much used now, especially for the  seasoning of wood. Poor Toby is not  to blame."  "We must get on the main scent  again; I suppose."  ', "Yes. ' And," fortunately, we have no  distance, to go. Evidently what puzzled the dog at the corner of Knight's  Place was that there were two different  ���������trails running in opposite directions.  We took the wrong one. It only re-  _iftins to follow the other."  There was no difficulty about this.  On leading Toby to the place where he  had committed his fault, he cast about  in a wide circle, and finally dashed off  In a fresh direction.  "We'must take care that he does not  now bring us to the place where the  oreosote barrel came from," I observed.  "I had thought of tha.t. But you  v������ notice that he1 keeps'on the pavement,  whereas the barrel' passed down the  iToadway. No, we are on the true scent  now."  It tended down toward the riverside,  running through Belmont Place and  .Prince's street. At the end of Broad  street it ran down to the water's edge,  where there was a small wooden wharf.  Toby led us to the very edge of this,  and there stood whining, looking out  on the dark current beyond.  "We are out of luck," said Holmes.  "They have taken, to a boat here."  Several small punts and ,'skiffs ���������'were  'lying about in the water and on the.  edge of, the wharf. We took Toby  round to each in turn, but, though he  rsniifed earnestly, he made no sign.  Close to the rude landing-stage was  .a small .brick house,  with  a  wooden  -placard slung out  through., the second  window.   "Mordecai Smith" was print-  -ed across it in large letters, and, underneath, "Boats to hire, by  the hour or  day."   A second inscription above the  ��������� door informed us  that a steam launch  was kept���������a statement which was confirmed by a,great pile of coke upon the  ..jetty.    (Sherlock Holmes looked slowly  ���������round, and his face  assumed an'ominous suppression.  . "This looks bad," said he. "These  fellows are sharper than I expected.'  ' They seem to have covered their tracks,  There has, I fear, been preconcerted  management here."  He was. approaching the door of the  house, when it opened,' and a little,  -curly-headed lad of six came running  out, followed by a stoutish, red-faced  woman, with a large sponge in her  hand.  "You come back and be washed,  Jack." she shouted. "Come back, you  young imp ; for if- your father comes  home and finds you like that, he'll let  us hear of it."  "Dear little chap!" said Holmes',  strategically. "What a rosy-cheeked  young rascal ! Now. .Tack, is there  anything you would like ?"  The youth pondered for a moment.  "I'd like a .shillin'," said he.  "Nothing vou would like hotter?"  "I'd like "two   .shillin'   hotter,"  the  prodigy answered, after some thought.  "Here   you   are  then!     Catch!���������A  fine child, Mrs. Smith."  "Lor'bless you. sir, he is that, and  forward. He gets a/most too much for  mo to manage, 'specially when my  man is away days at. a, t hue-"  "Away, is lie?" said Holmes, in a  disappointed voice. "I am sorry for  that, for I wanted to sneak to Mr.  Smith."  "He's been away since yesterday  momin', sir, and truth to tell, I am beginning to feel frightened about him-  But if it was about; a boat, sir. maybe I  could serve as well."  "1 wanted to hire his steam launch."  "Why. bless you. sir, it is in the  steam launch that he has gone- That's  what puzzles me; for I know there  ain't more coals in her than would take  her to about Woolwich and back- If  he'd been away in the barge I'd ha'  thought nothin'; for many a time a  job has taken him as far as Gravesend,  and then if there was much doin' there  ho might ha' stayed over. But what  good is a steam launch without coals?"  "He might have bought some at a  wharf down the river."  "fie might, sir, but it weren't his  way. Many a time I've heard him  call out at the prices they charge for a  few odd bags. Besides, I don't like  that wooden-legged man, wi' his ugly  face and outlandish talk. What did he  want always knockin' about here for ?"  "A wooden-legged man ?" said  Holmes, with bland surprise.  "Yes, sir; a brown, monkey-faced  chap that's called more'n once for ray  old man. It was him that roused him  up yesternight, and. what's more, my  man knew he was comin', for he had  steam up   in _ the  launch.    I tell  you  straight, sir, I   don't feel   easy m my  mind about it."  "But. my dear Mrs. Smith," said  Holmes, shrugging his shoulders, "you  are frightening yourself about nothing.  How could you possibly tell that it was  the wooden-legged man who came in  the night ? I don't quite understand  how'you can be so sure."  '  "His voice, sir. I knew his voice,  which is kind o' thick and foggy. :J He  tapped at the winder���������about three it  would be. 'Show a' leg, matey,' says  he; 'time to turn out guard.' My old  man woke up Jim���������that's my eldest���������  and away they went, without so much  as a word to me. I could hear the  wooden leg clackin' on the stones."  "And was this wooden-legged man  alone ?"  "Couldn't say, I am sure, sir. I  didn't hear no one else."  "I am sorry, Mrs. Smith, for I wanted  a steam launch, and I have heard  good reports of the���������Let me see, what  is her name ?"  "The Aurora, sir,"  "Ah! She's not that old green  launch with a yellow line, very broad  in tlie beam?"  "No. indeed. She's as trim a little  thing as any on tho river-    She's been  fresh  painted,   black   with   two   red  streaks."  "Thanks. I hope that you will hear  soon from Mr. Smith. I am going down  the river : and if I should see anything  of flie Aurora I shall let him know that  you are uneasy. A black funnel, you  say "  9������  "No, sir.' Black with a white band."  "Ah, of course. It was the sides  which were black. Good morning,  Mrs. Smith. There is a boatman here  with a wherry, Watson. We shall  take it and cross the river."  "The main thing with people of thai  sort," said Holmes, as we sat in the  sheets of the wherry, "is never to let  them think that their information can  be of the slightest importance to,,, you.  If you do, they will instantly shut up  like an oyster. If you ��������� listen to them  imder protest, as it were, you are very  likely to get what you want."  "Our course now seems pretty clear,"  said I. '' ���������  "What would youdo then ?" "  "I would en'gago a launch and go  down the track of the Aurora."  "My dear fellow, it would be a colossal task.    She may have  touched at  any wharf on either side. of the stream  between here and Greenwich.    Below  the bridge there is a  perfect labyrinth  of landing-places for miles.    It would  take you   clays  and  days   to exhaust  them, if you set about it alone."  "Employ the police, then."

We pulled up at the Great tPeter  street postoffice, and Holmes dispatched his wire. "Whom do you think that  is to ?" he asked, as we resumed our  journey.  "I am sure I don't know."  "You remember the Baker street division of the detective police.force whom  I   employed   in   the    Jefferson   Hope  I found the breakfast laid and Holmes  pouring out the coifee.  "Here it is," said he, laughing, and  pointing to an open newspaper. "The  energetic Jones and the ubiquitous reporter have fixed it up between them.  But you have had enough of the case.  Better have your ham and eggs first."  I took the paper from him and read  the short notice, which was headed  "M3rsterious Business at Upper Norwood."  "About twelve o'clock last night,"  said the Standard,   "Mr. Bartholomew  Sholto, of   Pondiche'rry  Lodge, Upper  Norwood, was  found dead in his room  under circumstances   which   point to  foul play.    As far as we can  leai_,   no  traces of violence were found upon Mr.  Sholto's person, but a valuable collection of Indian gems, which the deceased gentleman had inherited from his  father has been carried off.    The discovery was first made by Mr. Sherlock  Holmes   and   Dr.   Watson,   who had  called at the house with Mr. Thaddeus  Sholto, brother of the deceased.   By a  singular piece   of   good   fortune,  Mr.  Athelney Jones, the well-known member of the detective police force, happened to   be   at   the   Norwood police  station, and was on the ground within  half an hour of the first alarm.   His  trained and experienced faculties were  at once directed toward the detection  of the criminals,  with the gratifying  result   that    the    brother,    Thaddeus  Sholto, has  already been arrested, together   with    tho   housekeeper,    Mrs.  Bern stone,   an   Indian   butler named  Lai Rao, and a porter,  or gatekeeper,  named McMurdo. It is quite certain that  the thief or thieves were well acquainted  wioh the house,   for   Mr.   Jones' well-  known technical   knowledge   and his  powers of minute observation have enabled him to prove conclusively that  the miscreants could not have entered  by.th'e door or by the'window, but must  have made their way across the roof of  the building,   and   so   through a trapdoor into a room which communicated  with that in which the body was found.  This fact, which has been very clearly  made out, proves conclusively that it  was no mere haphazard burglary.  The  prompt   and   energetic   action   of the  officers of the law shows the great advantage of  the  presence   on   such occasions of a single vigorous and masterful mind.'   We cannot but think that it  supplies a_  argument  to those wh*  would wish to see our detectives more  decentralized,   az_j_l   so   brought  i_������e  ������loser and  more   effective touch with  naked feet, stoxie-neaaea wooden mace,  great agility, small poisoned darts.

"When  first I saw signs of strange weapons I  was inclined to think so, but the remarkable character of the footmarks  caused me to reconsider, my views.  Some of the inhabitants of the Indian  Peninsula are small men, but none  could have left such marks as that.  Tlie Hindoo proper has long and thin  feet. The sandal-wearing Mohammedan has the great toe well separated  from the others, because the thong is  commonly |Dassed between. These little  darts, too, could only bo shot in one  way.

A  combination of the bolero and cape is seen  injtwhich the latter is represented by very  ample sleeves composed of many plaifcinga  of mousseline de soie or one wide one  gathered under a shoulder knot.

"So do I. I wouldn't answer for our  safety now, if he should happen to  have another of his attacks of energy."  At this moment there was a loud  ring at the bell, and I could hear Mrs.  Hudson, our landlady, raising her  voice in ��������� a wail of expostulation and  disma3r.  "By heaven, Holmes," I said, half-  rising, "I believe they are really after  us."  "No, it's not quite so bad as that.  It is the unofficial force���������the Baker  street irregulars."  As he spoke, there came a swift  pattering of naked feet upon the stairs,  a clatter of high voices, and in rushed  a dozen dirty and ragged little street  Arabs. There was some show of, discipline among them, despite their  tumultuous entry, for they instantly  drew up in line and stood facing us  with expectant faces. One of their  number, taller and older than the  others, stood forward with an air of  lounging superiority which was very  funny in such a disreputable little  scarecrow.

"This is just the case where they  might be invaluable. If they fail, I  have other resources ; but I shall try  them first. That wire was to my dirty  little lieutenant, Wiggins, and I expect  that he and his gang will be with us  before we have finished our breakfast."  It was between eight and nine o'clock  now, and I was conscious of a strong  reaction after the successive excitements of the night. I was limp and  weary, befogged in mind $nd fatigued  in body. I had not the professional  enthusiasm which-carried my companion on, nor could I look at the matter  as a mere abstract intellectual problem.  As far as the death of Bartholomew  Sholto went, I had heard little good of  him, and could   feel   no   intense anti-  Eathy to his murderers. The treasure,  owever, was a different matter. That,  or part of it, belonged rightfully to  Miss Morstan. While there was a  chance of recovering it, I was ready to  devote my life to the one object. True,  if I found it, it would probably put her  forever beyond my reach. Yet it  would be a petty and selfish love which  would be influenced by such a thought  as that. If Holmes could work to find  the criminals, I had a tenfold stronger  reason to urge me on to find the treasure.  A bath at Baker street and a complete change freshened me up wonderfully.   When I came down to our room  "Here you are," said Holmes, producing some silver. "In future they  can report to you, Wiggins, and you  to me. I cannot have the house invaded  in this way. However, it is just as  well that you should' all hear the instructions. I want to find the whereabouts of a steam launch called the  Aurora, owner, Mordecai Smith, black  with two red - streaks, funnel black  with a white band. She is down the  river somewhere. I want one boy to  be at Mordecai Smith's landing stage,  opposite Millbank, to'see if the boat  comes back. You must divide it out  amog yourselves, and do both banks  thoroughly. Let me know the moment  you have news.    Is  that all clear?"  "Yes. guv'nor," said Wiggins.  "The old scale of pay, and a guinea  to the boy who finds the boat. Here's  a day in advance- Now off you go !"  He handed them a shilling each, and  away they buzzed down the stairs, and  I saw them a moment later streaming  down the street.  "If the launch is above water they  will find her," said Holmes, as he rose  from the table and lit his pipe. "They  can go everywhere, see everything,  overhear everyone. I expect to hear  before evening that they have spotted  her. In the meanwhile, we can do  nothing but await results. We cannot  pick up the broken trail until we find  either the Aurora or Mr- Mordecai  Smith."  "Toby could eat these scraps, I dare  say.    Are j^ou ������omS t0   Ded\ Holmes?"  "No; I am not tired. I have a  curious constitution. I never remember feeling tired by work, though  idleness exhausts me completely.

Dr. Field sends " Tho Weekly the last  birthday letter ho received from Dr.  Hale. It is dated at Washington and begins, "My dear young friend."

Text, Esther i, 1, "This is  Ahasuerus which reigned from India  ���������ven unto Ethiopia."  Among the 773,693 words which make  up the Bible only once   occurs ,the word  "India."    In this part of the Scriptures,  which the rabbis call "Megillah Esther,"  or the volume of Esther,   a   book   some  times   complained   against   because the  word, "God"' is not even once mentioned  in it, although one rightly , disposed can  Bee God in it from   the   first   chapter   to  the last, we have it set forth that Xerxes,  or Ahasuerus, who invaded   Greece with  8,000,000 men, but   returned   in   a poor  fisher's boat, had a vast dominion, among  other regions, India.    In   my text' India  takes its place in Bible   geography,   and  the interest in that   land has   continued  to increase   until   with   more and more  enthusiasm all around   the world Bishop  Heber's   hymn   about    "India's     coral  strand" is being 6iing.   Never will I forget the thrill of   anticipation   that went  through ray body   and   mind   and   soul  when after two   week's   tossing   on   the  seas around Ceylon   and   India���������for   the  winds did not, according to the old hymn  "blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle'.'���������our   ship  nailed up one of the mouths, of   the Ganges  past   James   and    Mary   island     so  named because a royal ship of that name  was wrecked there, and I stepped  ashore  at Calcutta, amid the   shrines   and tern-  pies, and   sculptures   of that City of Palaces, the strange   physiognomies   of   the  living and the cremations of the dead.  I had never expected to   be   there, because the sea and I   long ago had a serious falling out, but the facilities of travel  are so increasing that ' you   or your children will   probably   visit   that   land   of  boundless fascination.    Its  configuration  is such as no   ono   but   God could  have  architected, and it seems as if a man who  had no religion   going   there   would   be  obliged   to acknowledge a   God,   as   did  the cowboy in Colorado.  His companion,  an atheist, had about persuaded' the cowboy that there was no , God, but   coming  amid some of that tremendous scenery of  high rooks and awful chasms, and depths,  dug under depths,   and  mountains piled  .on mountains,   the'   cowboy,   said  to his  atheistic companion,'   "Jack, if there    is  no God, I guess from the looks of things  around here there must have been a God  gome time."   No ono but the Omniscient  could have   planned   India,   and   no one  but the .Omnipotent could have"   built it.

You cannot see the tiger' s natural  ferocity after he has been   humiliated by  a voyage across the sea. You need to hear  his growl   as   he   presses   his   iron paw  against the cage   in   Calcutta.    Thirteen  towns have been abandoned as   residence  because of the work of'this cruel invader.  In India, in the year   1S77, 819 people  were slain by the tiger and 10,000   cattle  destroyed.  From the back of the elephant  or from galleries   built   among the trees  1,500 tigers went down   and   $18,000   of  government reward was paid the sportsmen.    I advise all those* who in America  and other lands find amuseinent in shooting singing birds, coining home at night  with   empty powder flask   and   a_ whole  choir of heaven slung over their shoulder I  to absent themselves   for   awhile and attack the justifiable game   of   India.

The Baptist missionary Carey, who did  infinite good   to   India,    had   two 'great  passions���������first, a passion for   souls, and,  miles, yet gets louder and more agonizing as the days go by. But why have  any interest in people so far away that it  is evening there when it is morning here,  their complexion darker, their language  to us a jargon, their attire unlike that  found in any American wardrobe, their  memory and their ambition'" unlike anything that we recall or hope for?  With more emphasis than you put into  the interrogatory "Why?" I answer,  first, because our Christ was an Asiatic.  Egypt gave to us its monuments, Eome  gave to us its law, Germany gave to us  its philosophy, but Asia gave to us its  Christ. His mother an ��������� Asiatic; the  mountains that looked down upon him,  Asiatic; the lakes on whose pebbly  banks he rested and on whose chopped  waves he walked, Asiatic;-- the apostles  whom he first commissioned, .Asiatic;  the audiences" he whelmed with his illustrations drawn from blooming lilies and  salt crystals and great rainfalls and bellowing tempests and hypocrits' long faces  and croaking ravens���������all those audiences  Asiatic. Christ during his earthly stay  was never outside of Asia. When he had  16 or 1������ years to spare from his active  work, instead of spending that time in  Europe, I think he goes farther toward  the heart of Asia���������namely, India.- The  Bible, says nothing of Christ from 12  years of age until 30, but there are  records in India and traditions in India  which represent a, strange, wonderful,  most excellent and supernatural' being as  staying in India about that time. I  think Christ was. there much of the time  between, his twelfth and his .thirtieth  year, but however that may be, Christ  was born in Asia, suffered in Asia, died  in Asia and ascended from Asia, and all  that makes me turn my ear more attentively toward that continent as I hear its  cry of distress.  1   Noble Missionaries.  Besides that, I remember that some of  the most splendid achievements for the  cause of that Asiatic Christ have been  made in India. How the heart of every  intelligent Christian beats with admiration at tho mere'mention of the name of  Henry Martyn! Having read the life of  our American Davidf_Brainerd, who gave  his life Ho evangelizing our American  savages, Henry Martyn goes forward to  give his life for the. salvcition of India,  dying from exhaustion of service at 31  years of age. Lord Macaulay, writing of  him, says:���������  Here Martyn' lies.    In   manhood's early  bloom  The Christian hero found a pagan tomb.

In   that dear  name,  Through every scene of danger, toil   and  shame,  Onward he journeyed to that happy shore,  Where danger, toil and shame are known  no more.  Is there in all history,    secular   or religious, a more wondrous  character than  William Carey, the converted   shoemaker  of England, daring all things for  God in  India, translating the  Bible   into   many  dialects, building   chapels   and   opening  mission' houses   and   laying   foundations  for the redemption of  the   country,;   and  although Sydney Smith, who   sometimes  laughed at things he ought   not   to have  satirized, had in" .the   learned  Edinburgh  Review scoffed at the idea   of   what he  called   "lowborn,    lowbred    mechanics"  like Carey1 attempting   to   convert   the  Brahmans, Carey   stopped   not   until he  had started influences   that   eternity, no  more than. time, shall have power   to arrest, 213,000 Bibles going forth from  his  printing presses at Serampore.  .His siib-  lime humility showing itself in the   epitaph   he   ordered   from   the   old   gospel  hymn':���������!i���������-���������'    ������������������->.' .' ������������������;"���������  A.wretched, poor and helpless worm,  On thy kind arms I fall.  next, a passion for flowers���������and he  adorned his Asiatic home and the American homes of his friends and museums  on either side the sea with the results of  his floral expeditions in India.

All success to the hunters,and the botanists, and the ethnolgists, and the historians, and the archaeologists, who visit India, each.one on his or her errand. But  we to-day visit India as Christian women  and men to hear the full meaning of a  groan of hunger that has travelled 14,000  Need I tell you of Alphonse Lacroix,  the Swiss missionary in India, or of  William Butler, the glorious American  Methodist missionary in India, or of the  royal family of the Scudders, of the Reformed Church of America, my dear  mother church to whom I give a kiss of  love in passing, or of Dr. Alexander Duff,  the Scotch missionary whose visit to this  country some, of us will remember, forever? \Vhen he'stood in the old Broadway  tabernacle, New, York, and pleaded for  India until there was no other depth of  religious emotion for him to stir and no  loftier height of Christian eloquence for  him to scale, and closed in a whirlwind  of halleluiahs, I coiild easily believe that  which was said of him, that while pleading the cause of India in one of the  churches in Scotland he got so overwrought that he fell in the pulpit in a  swoon and was carried into the vestry to  be resuscitated, and when restored to his  senses and preparation was being made  to carry him out to some dwelling where  he could be put to bed, he compelled his.  friends to take him back to the pulpit to  complete his plea for tho salvation of  India, no sooner getting on his feet than  he began where he loft off, but with more  gigantic power than before ho fainted.  But just as noble as any I have mentioned are the men and women who are  there now for Christ's sake and the redemption of that people. Far away from  their native land, famine on one side and  black plague on the other side, swamps  breathing on them malaria, and jungles  howling on them with wild beasts or  hissing with cobras; tho names of those  missionaries of all denominations to be  wiitten so high on the roll of martyrs  that no names of the last 1,S00 years  shall be written above them. Yon need to  see them at their work in schools and  churches and lazarettos to appreciate  them. All honor upon them and their  households, while I smite the lying lips  of their slanderers!  Their Kelisrion.  Most interesting are the people of India. At Calcutta, I said to one of their  leaders, who spoke English well:���������  "Have these idols which I see any  power of themselves to help or  destroy?"  He said: "No; they only represent God.  There is but one God."  "When people die, where do they go  to?"  1' That depends upon what they have  been doing; if they have - been doing  good, to heaven, and if they have been  doing evil, to hell."  "But do you not believe in the transmigration of souls, and that after death  we go into birds or .animals of some  sort?"  "Yes; the last creature a man is  thinking of while dying is the one into  which he will go. If he is thinking of a  bird, he will go into a bird; if he,is  thinking of a beast, he will go into a,  beast."  , "I thought you said that at   death the  soul goes to heaven or hell?'  "He goes there by a gradual process.  It may take him years and years."  "Can any one become a Hindoo? Could  I become a Hindoo?'  "Yes, you could."  "How could T become a Hindoo?"  "By doing as the Hindoos do."  ,  From the walls of one of   their   museums at Jaipur I had   translated   for  me  these beautiful sentiments:���������  The wise make failure equal to success.  Like threads, of silver seen through  crystal beads, let love through good deeds  6how.  Do not to others that which if done to  .thee would cause thee pain. And this is  the sum of duty.,  A man obtains a proper rule of action  by looking on his neighbor as himself.  An Eloquent Appeal.  From   that   continent   of   interesting  folk, from that   continent   that gave the  Christ, from that, continent   whioh   has  been endeared by   so   many   missionary  heroics, there comes a groan   of , 80,000,-  000 people in hunger.  More people are in  danger of starving to death in   India today than the   entire   population   of   the  United States'  In the famine in India in  the   year   1877   about   6,000,000   people  starved to death.    That is 'more than   all  the people of Washington, of New   York,  of Philadelphia, of Chicago put together.  But that famine was not a tenth  part as  awful   as   the   one   there   now  raging.  Twenty   thousand   are   dying   there   of  famine every   day.    -Whole villages   and  towns have died���������every man, woman and  child; none left to bury   the   dead.    The  vultures and   the   jackals   are   the only  pall-bearers.    Though some help has been  sent,   before full relief can roach   them I  suppose there will be at least   10,000,000  dead.    Starvation, even for   one   person,  is an awful process.    No food, ' the vitals  gnaw   upon   themselves,    and   faintness  and languor   and   pangs   from   head to  foot, and horror and despair and insanity  take   full   possession.     One   handful   of  wheal or corn or rice per day would keep  life going but they cannot get a handful.  The crops failed   and   the   millions   are  dying.    Oh, it is hard to be hungry  in a  world where there are enough'Ggrain and  fruit and meat   t'o   fill   all   the   hungry  mouths on the planet!    But,   alas,    that  the sufferer and   the   supply   cannot  be  brought, together.  There stands India today.    Look at her.    Her face'dusky from  the hot suns of many centuries.      Under  her turban such achings of  brow as only  a dying nation feels; her eyes hollow with  unutterable woe; the tears'rolling   down  her sunken cheek;    her   back   bent with  more agonies   than   she   knows   how to  carry; her ovens containing nothing but  ashes.    Gaunt,   ghastly, wasted, the dew  of, death upon her forehead and a   pallor  such as the last hour brings, she stretches  forth her trembling hand toward   us and  with hoarse   whisper   she   says: "I   am  dying!    Give 'me bread!    That is what I  want! Bread!   Give it to me quick.  Give  it to me now.  Bread, bread, bread!"  ,   . America    has   heard   the   cry.     Many  thousands of dollars   have   already   been  contributed.    One ship laden with bread-  stuffs has sailed from   San  Francisco for  India.    Our   senate and������ house of   representatives  in  a bill signed by  our   sympathetic president   have   authorized   the  secretary of the navy to  charter a' vessel  to carry food/, to   the   famine   sufferers,  and you may. help fill that ship.  We want  to send at least 600,000   bushels  of corn.  That will save the lives of at   least 600,-  000 people.   Many will respond in oontri-  butions Of money,   and   the   barns   and  corncribs of.   the   entire    United    States  will pour forth their   treasures   of   food.  When that ship is laden till it can   carry  no more, Ave will ask him who holds the  winds in'his fist   and   plants his triumphant foot oh stormy waves to   let nothing but good happen   to the   ship till'it  anchors in    Bengal   or   Arabian waters.  They who help by contributions of money  or bread s'fcuffs. toward   filling that relief  ship will flavor their own food  for   their  lifetime with   appetizing   qualities   and  insure their   own   welfare   through   the  promise of him who said, "Blessed  is ha  that considereth the poor; the   Lord will  deliver him in time of trouble."  grandly up amid the masts and  ratlines.  Having had the joy   of   seeing that ship  thus consecrated we had   the   additional  joy of   standing   on   the   docks   at. St.  Petersburg when the planks of  the relief  ship were thrown out and the representatives of the municipalities and of royalty  went aboard her,   the* long   freight train  at the same time rolling down to take the  food   to the   starving, and   on   alternate  cars of that train .American and Russian  flags floating.    But   now   the hunger in  India is mightier than   any that   Ireland  or Russia ever suffered.      Quicker ought  to be the response and on' so vast a   scale  that the one ship would become   a whole  flotilla���������New York   sending one, Boston  another, Philadelphia   another,   Charleston another, New Orleans another.   Then  let them all meet in some ,harbor   of   India.  What a peroration of   mercy for  the  nineteenth century! I would like to stand  on the, wharf at Calcutta or Bombay and  see such a fleet come in.    With what joy  it would be   welcomed!     The emaciated  would lift their heads on shriveled hands  and elbows and with thin   lips ask.   "Is  it   coming���������something.,,  to,   eat?."      And  whole   villages   and   towns, too weak to  walk, would crawl   out   on   hands   and  knees to get the first grain of corn .they  could reach and put it to their   famished  lips. , May   I cry out   for   you   and   for  others to those   sufferers:   " Wait a little  longer, bear Up a   little   more, O   dying  men of.India!   Relief is on the way, and  more relief will, soon be coming. We send  if in the name of the Asiatic Christ, who  said, 'I was hungry and ye fed me; inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of   the  least of these,1 my brethren, ye have done  it unto me.' "  Christian ' people of   America!   I   call  your attention to the  fact   that we   may  now, as never before, by one magnificent  6troke open the widest door for the evan  gelization of Asia. A stupendous obstacle  in the   way   of   Christianizing Asia has  been the difference   of   language, but all  those people   understand   the   gospel   of  bread. Another obstacle has been tne law  of caste', but in what better 'way can   we  teaoh them the brotherhood of man? Another   huge   difficulty . in   the   way   of  Christianizing Asia has   been that   those  people thought   the   religion . we   would  have them take was no better than  their  Hindooism or Mohammedanism, but they  will now see   by this crusade for the   relief of people 14,000 miles away   that the  Christian religion   is of   a higher, better  and grander type than any other religion,  for when did   the followers   of   Brahma,  or "Vishnu, or   Buddha, or Confucius, or  Mohammed ever demonstrate like   interest in people on the   opposite side of   the  world?     Having taken the bread of  this  life from our hands, they  will be   more  apt to take from us the bread of   eternal  life.    The missionaries   ot   different  denominations in -India at   46 stations are  already distributing relief   sent   through  The Christian Herald.   > Is it   not   plain  that those missionaries, after feeaing the  hunger of the "body, will be at better advantage to feed the hunger  of   the soul?  When   Christ, before   preaching 'to   the  5,000 in the wilderness   broke   for   them  the miraculous   loaves, he indicated that  the best way to   prepare   the   world   for  spiritual   and   eternal   consideratiops  is  first to look after  their   temporal   interests,    bh, church of God in America and  Europe!     This is your opportunity.     We  have on occasions of Christian patriotism  cried, "America   for   God!"    Now let us  add the battle   shout, "Asia   for   God!"  In this movement to give food to   starv-  I ing India  I   hear   the   rustling   of   the  j wings of the Apocalyptic angel, ready to  fly through the   midst   of   heaven   proclaiming to all the kingdoms and   people  and tongues the   unsearchable   riches   of  Jesus Christ. ������  which   are   burning-, out rapidly toward  the crust may have reached   the   surface  by that time   and the Bible prophecy be ! -  fulfilled, which declares   that   the   earth '���������'  and all things that   are therein   shall be  burned up. The ransomed human race at  that time oh earth   will start   unhurt in  those chariots pf fire for the- great   me- ,  tropolis   of   the   universe,    the   heaven, '  where   the   redeemed of   the Lord   shall  talk over   the famines, and   the plagues,  and the wars which   .this  earth   suffered  and   against   Avhich    we   struggled1 and  prayed as long as   there was any   breath  in us.

Somethinsr to Eat.  Oh, what a relief ship that will be! It  shall not turn a screw nor hoist a sail  until we have had something to do with  its cargo. Just 17 years ago from these  Easter times a ship on similar errand  went out from New York harbor���������the  old war frigate Constellation. It had  once carried guns of, death, but there was  famine in Ireland, and. the Constellation  was loaded with 500 tons of food. That  ship, once covered with smoke of battle,  then covered with Easter hosannas! That  ship, constructed to battle England, going forth over the waters to carry relief  to some of her starving subjects. Better  than sword into plowshare, better than  spear into pruning hook, was that old ���������  war frigate turned into a white winged  angel of resurrection to roll away the  stone from the mouth of Ireland's sepul-  cher.  . On like errand five years ago the ship  Leo put out with many tons of food for  famine struck Russia. One Saturday  afternoon, on tho. deck of that steamer  as she lay at Brooklyn wharf, a wondrous  scene took place. A committee of the  King's Daughters had decorated the ship  with streamers and bunting. American  and Russian flags intertwining. Thousands of people on the wharfs and on the  decks joined us in invoking God's blessing on the cargo, and the long meter  Doxology   in  "Old   Hundred"   sounded  And now I bethink myself of something I never thought of before. I had  noticed that the circle is God's favorite  figure, and upon thatsubiect I addressed  you some time ago, but it did not occur  to me until now thatthe gospel seems to  be moving in a circle.' It started in  Asia, Bethlehem, an Asiatic village;  Jordan, an Asiatic .river;-' Calvary, an  Asiatic mountain. Then this gospel  moved on to Europe; < witness the chapels  and churches and cathedrals and Christian universities of that continent. Then  it crossed to America. ' It has prayed and  preached and sung its way across our  continent. It has crossed to Asia, taking,  the Sandwich Islands in its way, and  now in all the great cities on the coast  of China people are singing "Rock of  Ages" and "There Is a Fountain Filled  With Blood," for you must know that  riot only have the Scriptures been, translated into those Asiatic tongues, but also  the evangelical hymns.  My missionary brother John translated  some   of   them   into Chinese,    and   Mr.  Gladstone gave me a copy of the   hymn,  "Jesus, Lover of  My   Soul,"   which   he  had himself translated into   Greek.    The  Christ who it seems spent 16 or 18  years  of his life in India is there now in spirit,  converting and saving the people by   the  hundreds   of   thousands, and the   gospel  will move right   on through Asia   until  the story of the Saviour's birth will anew  be made.known   in   Bethlehem, and the  story of a Saviour's sacrifice be told anew  on and around Mount   Calvary, and   the  story of   a Saviour's   ascension   be   told  anew on the shoulder of   Mount . Olivet.  And then do you not see   the circle   will  be complete? The glorious circle, the circle of the earth.    This old planet, gashed  with earthquake and scorched with   conflagration and torn with revolutions, will  be girdled with    churches, with   schools,  with universities, with millennial festivities.      How cheering and how   inspiring  the thought that we are, whether  giving  temporal or spiritual   relief, working  on  the   segment   of   such a circle, and that  the Christly mission   which   started   in  Asia will   keep on   its way until it  goes  clear    around   to   the   place   where    it  started.  Then the earth will have demonstrated, that   for which   it was   created,  and as soon as a world has completed its  mission it dies.    Part of the heavens is a  cemetery of   dead   worlds.      Our world,  built to demonstrate to the worlds which  have been loyal to God the awful  results  of disloyalty, so   that none of them   may  ever attempt it���������I say our world, having  finished its mission, may then go   out of  existence.    The central fires of the world  In the early days of Methodism in Canada the gospel was spread abroad in the  land by the active exertions of the circuit  rider. It required a man of no ordinary  health and strength; an iron oonetitu-  tion' and unflagging determination to fulfil the arduous' duties incumbent on one  who undertook to preach salvation to his  fellowmen. It was no easy task that  these men set themselves to, but they  were strong,in the faith and hope of ultimate reward. Many fell by the wayside,  while others struggled oh and prospered,  and & few are to-day enjoying a ripe old  age, happy in the knowledge that a lasting reward will soon be theirs. Most of  these old .timers are not now engaged in  active church work, ' but have been  placed on the superannuated list, and are  now living a quiet life in town or on a  farm, free from the cares of the world,  they await the call to come up higher.  Rev. David   Williams, who   lives   two  miles southwest of   Nixon,'Ont., in   the,  township of   Windham, Norfolk County,  was one of these early days circuit riders.  He was a man of vigorous health and although without   many advantages in th*  way of early education he   succeeded   by  dint of hard and constant study in being  admitted to the ministry.     He was   the  first born in the first house built in Glen  Williams, near    Georgetown, ' Mr.   Geo."  Kennedy,   the   founder   of   Georgetown,  being a brother of his mother. To-day he  is 70 years old and for the past   26 years  has lived in this county. For many years  he had   been   a sufferer from kidney and  kindred diseases.     He tried all   kinds of  remedies, and although sometimes   temporarily relieved, lie gradually grew worse  until in October, 1895, he   was   stricken  with, paralysis.  From this he partially recovered .'and   recovered   his   powers,   of  speech, but his mind was   badly wrecked  and his   memory was   so   poor   that   he  could not remember the name of the per-  son^o whom he wished to 6peak without  thinking   intently for   several   minutes.  One day driving to church he wished   to  speak of   a neighbor who   lived   next to  him for twenty years, but he   could   not  recall the name for an hour or more.    In  addition to his   mental   trouble, he   had  intense bodily   suffering;    pains   In   the  head, across the forehead, in the temples  and   behind   the   ears, across   the lower  part of the skull and in the joint of. the  neck.    He had great weakness and pains  in the   back, hips   and legs.    In fact, so  much did he suffer that sleep was almost  an impossibility, and   he   fell   away   in  weight    until, he   weighed     only     146  pounds.  By this time, Dec, 1895, he became despondent and felt that if   he   did  not soon obtain relief, he would soon bid  adieii to the things of this world.  On the  20th of   December he read ot   a cure  .in  The   Reformer   by   Dr. Williams'    Pink  Pills, and being seized with a sudden Inspiration at once wrote to   Br������ckville f������r  a supply of that marvellous remedy. Immediate good results followed   their   use  and he has improved wonderfully during  the past year. He has recovered his bodily  health   and   strength,   is   comparatively  free from pain and his memory is nearly  as good as it   ever was; and   as   the improvements continues "the   prospects   are  very bright for complete   recovery.      He  has gained 20 pounds in weight 6ince beginning the use   of   Dr. Williams'   Pink  Pills.  Mr. Williams says: "I can heartily  endorse   the   many good   things said  of  these pills in the papers, and strongly recommend them to any one suffering as I  was."  Dr: Williams' Pink Pills are a hlood  builder and nerve restorer. They supply  the blood with its life and health-giving  properties, thus driving disease from the  system. There are numerous pink colored  imitations, against which the public is  warned The genuine Pink Pills can be  had only in boxes the wrapper around  wheh bears the full trade mark, "Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People."
